Some Law Enforcement Backing Amendment 64

Sep 21st @ 5:31 pm in News by Scott Staley

There is a growing endorsement in support of Amendment 64 a measure to regulate marijuana like alcohol.  Many former police officers, prosecutors and judges have come out with their backing of the amendment.  By ending the illegal use of marijuana they say it will actually help law enforcement in Colorado as they can concentrate on more serious crimes.  However, Montrose County Commissioners and County Sheriff have gone on record opposing the amendment.  Many in our area say that as far as they’re aware of most in law enforcement do not support the legalization of marijuana in this fashion.
