In an interesting juxtaposition of Colorado Springs' current situation — where anti-MMJ group Let Us Vote COS seeks to place a center ban question on the April ballot — Broomfield citizens collected over 1,500 signatures to place a ban question on its ballot, in an attempt to overturn the city's current ban.
MMJ advocacy group Sensible Colorado, who provided funding and strategic support for the campaign, thinks it's a great step.
“Hundreds of sick patients who live in Broomfield deserve safe access to their constitutionally protected medicine at centers tightly regulated by the Colorado Department of Revenue,” says executive director Brian Vicente in a release.
“Sensible Colorado Action is proud to support the Broomfield citizens who stood up to City Council over the last month and collected the signatures necessary to force the Council to suspend it's ill conceived ban."
Broomfield voters will set the record straight on Nov. 2.
