The Colorado Independent reported yesterday that on March 10 the Denver County Republicans voted to support Amendment 64 — the measure pushed by the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol — by 56 percent. A resolution supporting medical marijuana was also voted on.
A resolution supporting medical marijuana rights, and calling for the feds to back off in Colorado, however, passed with a wide enough margin to be adopted as an official position, with 73 percent support.
That resolution reads:
Be it resolved that Colorado’s Medical Marijuana laws are a state issue. The Obama Department of Justice should cease involvement in Colorado’s Medical Marijuana program and leave it to the voters of Colorado.
