Colorado Effort To Legalize MJ Turns in Signatures

Colorado -- If a campaign to legalize limited possession of marijuana in Colorado is to succeed, it will have to make inroads into skepticism by women, according to a recent poll.Perhaps that's why supporters of the campaign put more than a dozen women front and center at a news conference Wednesday as they turned in about 160,000 signatures to put the legalization initiative on the ballot. Wanda James  owner of the medical-marijuana-infused-food company Simply Pure  said the showing was intended to counter "a misconception that young men are driving the legalization of marijuana and the cannabis movement."
"It's time for this change," James said. ". . . And it's time for women to lead the fight."The initiative needs about 86,000 signatures from valid Colorado voters to make the ballot. If the secretary of state's office determines the campaign collected enough signatures, the measure would be the first certified for the 2012 ballot.The measure would amend the Colorado Constitution to legalize possession of up to an ounce of marijuana for any purpose by people ages 21 and older. People would also be able to grow up to six plants in their homes.The amendment would also allow for retail marijuana stores, regulated in a manner similar to medical-marijuana dispensaries. Communities, though, would be able to ban pot shops. Consumption of marijuana in public would not be allowed.

what is worse?
Moms, daughters, sisters, aunts, what would you rather,
young johnny smoking that harmless reefer in his room,
or would he be better off locked up with a rapist or murderer for the next fifteen to twenty years where he will probably just sit and smoke some reefer?
Prohibition.
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing.
