Thursday, November 03, 2005 Pot Users Say Initiative 100 Is Just The Start

Access Video:

"DENVER Pot users were celebrating the passage of Denver's Initiative 100 Wednesday by lighting up a joint.

The initiative allows adults to possess small amounts of marijuana in the city. It passed Tuesday 54% to 46%.

Local authorities said the passage really means nothing. Marijuana is still illegal in Denver and all of Colorado under state law.

Denver police said they will still ticket pot users and dealers under that state law.

Bob Malamede is a Colorado professional who admits he likes to smoke pot. He's a biology professor at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs.

'I started smoking marijuana when I was 16-years-old, which is when I went to college,' Malamede said.

Malamede was a big fan of Initiative 100." (more)
