Lawsuit filed over Colorado Prop to Regulate Marijuana like Alcohol

A colorado organization working to legalize Marijuana and regulate it like alcohol has filed a lawsuit over how its platform is being presented in this years elections. The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol argues that key information regarding its arguments for Proposition 64 has been unfairly deleted from the ‘Blue Book’.

The ‘Blue Book’ acts as a fair and balanced information guide for voters to understand what they are voting on:

The campaign says that the “Arguments For” Amendment 64 section of of the blue book is now just 208 words following the deletion, whereas the “Arguments Against” section is approximately 338 words — meaning “Against” has nearly 75 percent more words than the “For” section. Additionally, Mason Tvert, co-director of the campaign, told The Huffington Post that the council added at least 28 more words to the “Arguments Against” section in addition to the 338 words already present. “The blue book is supposed to be fair and balanced, and it’s safe to say this is quite lopsided and, thus, unfair,” the campaign said in a statement.

Looks like a showdown in the Mile High city.
