It seems we're always hearing stories of failed initiatives to legalize marijuana in various parts of the country. Colorado itself was the scene of one such in 2006, which went down in voter defeat.
"The freedom-based initiative is Legalize 2012, a grassroots campaign to place an initiative on the Colorado ballot to relegalize cannabis and hemp in Colorado for adults for all uses," says a release. "While it is vital that Colorado create a system of distribution for patients that works, at this point, we believe the best way to accomplish this is by full relegalization. The ballot initiative will be modeled after freedom-based models to legalization, which reject the sin taxes and over-regulation promoted in other models. The Legalize 2012 Project is currently forming a fundraising board & ballot initiative language committee."
