Colorado voters will have to decide whether or not to legalize marijuana in our state this November.
But the campaign to regulate marijuana like alcohol says the legislative council isn't being fair in what it's publishing in the voter guide book.
"They’re leaving out significant important points that we would like to have addressed," supporter for Amendment 64 David Cox said.
And that's why the campaign filed a lawsuit against the Denver District Court on Monday.
"These same folks that don't understand what's happening are also in opposition to the effort and despite their lack of what's happening they're still making important decisions on these things and negatively affecting our society," Cox said.
Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey was in Denver Monday talking at a conference about Amendment 64. We talked to him on the phone about the lawsuit.
"I would imagine that nobody is perfectly happy with what comes out in the blue book because you're trying to state your position in a way of strength," he said in a phone interview.”
Hilkey says a study by National Jewish Health says growing marijuana indoors can be extremely hazardous to people and there are still unanswered public policy questions about what to do about it.
"What about the marijuana industry workers, what about if it's inside somebody's house which Amendment 64 would allow,” Hilkey said. “What about kids living in the house and what about the other adults that live in the house?"
Those in favor of the amendment passing say there was another study released. It says less teens in Colorado are using the drug because of medical marijuana regulations. Regulations that would be even stricter if Amendment 64 passes, according to the Yes on Amendment 64 campaign.
"By regulating and controlling the we reduce the availability to those members of society that are mainly the children and the youth that we don't want to have access to marijuana," Cox said.
