Vox Pop: Amendment 64
People on the streets of Hotchkiss and Paonia weigh in on amendment 64 - a controversial measure on the ballot in Colorado. Amendment 64 proposes to amend the Colorado Constitution to regulate marijuana like alcohol in the state. It would allow those over the age of 21 to grow, process, and transport up to 6 marijuana plants with certain restrictions. It would allow the state to enact an excise tax on marijuana sales to be credited to an account for construction of public schools. And finally, it would require the state legislature to enact legislation concerning the growth, processing and sale of industrial hemp.
