On Monday Colorado Governor. John Hickenlooper signed into effect Amendment 64. This makes it legal to possession marijuana and grow a limited number of plants.
The Governor’s Office released a prepared statement from Gov. Hickenlooper in which he said, “Voters were loud and clear on Election Day. We will begin working immediately with the General Assembly and state agencies to implement Amendment 64.”
The Governor announced that there is a 24 member task force which will oversee the implementation of the law, and set up statures that will govern the eventual legal sale of marijuana to adults age 21 or over. It is most likely that the state will set up sales stores that will be run similar to ABC stores.
