A Colorado Marijuana Legalization Amendment did not make the November 6, 2012 ballot in Colorado as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have legalized marijuana in the state, with no regulations regarding age or amount in possesion. However, the measure would also have allowed for rules dictating how the drug could be sold.[1]

The initiative has been filed with the Colorado Secretary of State's office. According to reports, on January 18, 2012, the state title board cleared the measure for signature collection.
