If you’ve been following the battle among legalization advocates in Colorado as we’ve been covering it throughout the day, we told you we were in contact with the organizations that filed the legalization initiatives in Colorado for their responses, and SAFER’s Mason Tvert was the first to get back to us.
“We tried to include CTI and Legalize 2012 in the drafting process, and asked them to provide suggestions and proposed changes,” Mason told me. ” It’s a shame they did not do so and instead spent a week complaining about not being included.
“It’s exceptionally disingenuous for this group to be calling this initiative a carpetbagging effort, when in fact the organizations behind it represent tens of thousands or more Colorado marijuana reform supporters.
“It’s always easier to tear things down then it is to build them up. Unfortunately, these folks have opted to dedicate their time to attacking other reformers and fracturing this movement, as opposed to contributing to achieving our shared goal of ending marijuana prohibition.”
It seems things are just heating up. We will bring you all the developments on this story as they become available.
