Every Vote Counts
, the pro-recreational-marijuana group we've been following since last year, is set to file a ballot measure that would overturn City Council's decision to opt out of Amendment 64. It could see placement on the November ballot through either an act of Council, which rejected RMJ by a 5 to 4 vote, or through the signature-gathering process.

Here's The Gazette talking to group leader Mark Slaugh today.
"The initiative has been drafted. It's ready to be proposed to City Council," said Slaugh. "This is a great opportunity to create 1,000 jobs and also the opportunity to bring in millions in revenue."

"It could be the saving grace to have pot for potholes."
The group will hold a meeting tonight at 7 at The Warehouse Restaurant & Gallery where input on ballot specifics will be solicited.
