Colorado Legalize 2012 Marijuana

Models to Relegalization

Fingerprints or Freedom?

There are two models to cannabis relegalization: the True Legalization Model (freedom-based) and the Law Enforcement Model (fear-based).

True Legalization Model (freedom-based): The Legalize 2012 Campaign favors the True Legalization Model, where any adult needs to show only their driver’s license to purchase cannabis. This model assumes cannabis is one of the safest substances known to man and that only minimal restrictions on time, manner and place of cannabis production and use are necessary. This model allows responsible adult use. Cannabis is regulated equally or less-restrictively than alcohol and is subject to the same sales tax as any other retail product.

Features:

  • No unreasonable limits on personal possession, cultivation and use of cannabis, just like alcohol.
  • Adult needs to show only their driver’s license to purchase cannabis (no fingerprints or government tracking.)
  • Raises revenue by requiring sales tax to be paid on cannabis purchases. Sin taxes promoted in the Law Enforcement Model are designed to discourage use and are not part of the True Legalization Model.

    The Colorado ballot issues advertise false information, make big promises, and actually allow the Republicans to regulate, tax and then fund programs for marijuana abuse. HUMPH – the republicans pushing a marijuana agenda? YEAH – like Ron Paul saying “repeal the prohibition” which turned out to be nothing of the sort.

    Tell the Federal gov to repeal the prohibition, give us hemp, Stop wasting time and money on this argument.
