DENVER — On Wednesday, January 4, proponents of a statewide initiative to regulate marijuana like alcohol will submit nearly 160,000 signatures in support of placing the measure on the 2012 ballot. Only 86,105 valid signatures of registered Colorado voters are needed to qualify.
The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol will hold a news conference in the main atrium of the Mile High Center (1700 Broadway), after which it will head upstairs to the Secretary of State’s office to turn in its completed petition.
A group of more than a dozen women will participate in the news conference. Among them will be a prominent Republican Party activist, a prominent Democratic Party activist, and a recent graduate from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, who will discuss why they support ending marijuana prohibition and regulating it like alcohol.

Supporters of the initiative
Colorado is a key state in terms of marijuana law reform in 2012. But reform will not happen unless you decide this is the year you are going to make it happen.
If you are in the Denver area tomorrow, show your support for reform not only in your state but around the country.
