El Paso county passed A64[edit]

The map should be updated to reflect that, in the final count, amendment 64 passed by 10 votes in El Paso county. [1].

Hemp[edit]

The article currently states that the law does not affect industrial hemp, and cites section 1c of the amendment. however, that section states (according to this page):

(c) IN THE INTEREST OF ENACTING RATIONAL POLICIES FOR THE TREATMENT OF ALL VARIATIONS OF THE CANNABIS PLANT, THE PEOPLE OF COLORADO FURTHER FIND AND DECLARE THAT INDUSTRIAL HEMP SHOULD BE REGULATED SEPARATELY FROM STRAINS OF CANNABIS WITH HIGHER DELTA-9 TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL (THC) CONCENTRATIONS.

Previous to this, industrial hemp was treated as though it was the same as marijuana, and was therefore illegal to grow. It would seem that this amendment *does* change the treatment of hemp, although the specifics of such regulations are still to come through legislation. I'm still trying to find a better source for the text, but it is probably accurate. Obviously we will need to ultimately find a secondary source analysing the text.

Yeah I saw this too. Found the relevant information:

Section 5

(j) NOT LATER THAN JULY 1, 2014, THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY SHALL ENACT LEGISLATION GOVERNING THE CULTIVATION, PROCESSING AND SALE OF INDUSTRIAL HEMP.

I updated the page with the new information. Section 2 also has information on what exactly industrial hemp is as well.

Election results by county[edit]

I don't know if this is just me but the picture shows all the counties as white... So what is the purpose of the image? Devourer09 (t·c) 00:53, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Reactions[edit]

This legislation is a huge deal. It's literally the first time in the history of the country that recreational cannabis has been voted legal. There are bound to be reactions to this, including the Colorado governor's quote about Cheetos and Goldfish. There should be a section for that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.154.16.32 (talk) 08:04, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Support[edit]

First sentence of the "Support" section says "A large number of supporters of Amendment 64 do so simply because they believe government should play no role in regulating the market for cannabis—that government interference of any sort in the market is highly inefficient." Isn't that exactly what A-64 does? I mean, directing the state to regulate the market for cannabis? I've never written on a talk page before, this just seemed so blatantly wrong, I'm wondering if there's a reason? 198.213.240.19 (talk) 03:39, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Looks like someone flagged the lack of citation in November... I'm just going to delete/modify this sentence. I can't see any way it's relevant. Sorry for cluttering the talk page. Let me know if I f'ed up, or just delete these comments. 198.213.240.19 (talk) 03:43, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Comparison to Washington law?[edit]

Would it be useful to create a comparison of the Washington and Colorado laws for each page? They have differnet provisions but were passed on the same day.Rainyhemptree (talk) 10:52, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

The logical place for this seems to me in the broader entries Decriminalization of non-medical cannabis in the United States or Legal history of cannabis in the United States. This would provide for more expansion and increased relevance over time, since these two measures are merely the first among many likely to come. Rorybowman (talk) 19:03, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
I believe thinking more states will decriminalize is false. A comparison would be appropriate for this historic amendment.--Dana60Cummins (talk) 18:20, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
And the logical place to compare Oregon Ballot Measure 80 (2012), Colorado Amendment 64 (2012) and Washington Initiative 502 (2011) is Decriminalization of non-medical cannabis in the United States. I'll begin it there. Rorybowman (talk) 02:14, 10 December 2012 (UTC)
