One Month Before the Election, Colorado Marijuana Legalization Still Up Ten Points

The University of Denver has just released a new poll of likely Colorado voters and the results are encouraging for marijuana law reform advocates. With just under a month until election day, Colorado’s Amendment 64, which aims to regulate marijuana like alcohol, is still enjoying a ten point lead in the polls.

University of Denver polled 604 likely voters in Colorado between October 4th and 5th. They found that 50% were planning on voting yes on Amendment 64, with 40% stating they’d vote no and 10% still undecided. These numbers are holding steady when compared to the Denver Post’s previous polling on the issue in September which showed 51% support to 40% against.

If you live in Colorado, be sure to get out to the polls on election day and vote YES on Amendment 64. We can end marijuana prohibition by taking this first crucial step in dismantling the drug war machine. Help us end the thousands of arrests in Colorado every year for marijuana possession and send a resounding message to the federal government that we will no longer tolerate their war against cannabis consumers.

Also worth noting is that later today the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol will be announcing they’ve received the support of over 300 physicians who have signed onto a letter stating their support for Amendment 64. This list includes notable physicians such as Dr. Larry Bedard, former president of the American College of Emergency Physicians, and Dr. Bruce Madison, associate medical director of the faculty at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and vice-chair of the Council on Legislation for the Colorado Medical Society.

    Consider INVESTING in the full legalization movement with stock symbol MJNA (Medical Marijuana Inc). With the most recent October polls surging in Washington (24 point lead) and Colorado (10 point lead), ALL with majority support, and with WA GOP US Senate Candidate Michael Baumgartner’s recent announcement of official support for I-502, there’s no telling where this will go in November. Just look at what happened in the lead up to Prop19 in 2010.

    I’m from Utah. The murderers of the task force in the video to the left met a citizen protecting his home that didn’t know they were police. He killed one officer and wounded 5 others. These murderers clearly had a karma debt. But so does revenge. The innocent citizens trial starts oct 31 in Ogden Utah. Utah wants to murder this citizen. Where does it end?
