Voters passed Amendment 64 on November 6th, 2012. You've heard about the so-called "benefits" Colorado will receive with tax money going to schools and the state. But what about things people didn't think about that we're now starting to deal with. What are the unintended consequences of changing the state constitution? If you watch TV, you've heard a few of them.
Join the NSRF (North Suburban Republican Forum) with Mayors Heidi Williams and Herb Atkinson as they answer that question on Saturday, July 12th. You don't want to miss this meeting at our new venue, Horan

Colorado Amendment 64 was a popular initiative ballot measure to amend Colorado's constitution, outlining a statewide drug policy for cannabis. The measure passed on November 6, 2012, and along with a similar Washington measure marked "an electoral first not only for America but for the world." Now enacted as Article 18, section 16 of the state constitution, the law addresses "personal use and regulation of marijuana" for adults 21 and over, as well as commercial cultivation, manufacture, and sale, effectively regulating cannabis in a manner similar to alcohol. The first stores officially opened on January 1, 2014
