A campaign to legalize small amounts of marijuana for adult recreational use in Colorado is aimed at middle-aged, budget-conscious voters — not the pot smokers typically associated with such efforts.

Two marijuana legalization advocates started a signature drive Thursday to put a constitutional amendment on the ballot that they say would regulate and tax recreational marijuana to raise money for schools without making make weed available to all.

The representatives of the "Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol" wore suits and stood on a public lawn before the state Capitol and made their case that marijuana legalization would raise needed tax revenues and save money spent on arresting and prosecuting small-time pot users.

KMGH ABC 7: Pot Legalization Advocates Collecting Signatures For Ballot Issue

It's day one for pot legalization backers gathering signatures for a constitutional amendment seeking to authorize pot for recreational use in Colorado.

Supporters need about 86,000 signatures to get the question on ballots next year. They start collecting signatures Thursday afternoon in Denver.

If approved, the amendment would make pot legal in small quantities for adults over 21 starting in 2013. Sixteen states allow medical marijuana, but Colorado's proposal would set up a federal showdown over recreational pot rules. Backers of the amendment say the time is right to seek full legalization.

The Huffington Post: Marijuana Activists Begin Effort For Full Legalization In Colorado By 2013

Pot activists are aiming for full legalization of marijuana in Colorado and the fight begins today in Denver.

Supporters of legal recreational-use pot in the state need approximately 86,000 signatures to get a measure on the ballot for next year, The Denver Post reports. If the amendment were to get approval by voters, pot would be legal in Colorado, in small quantities, for adults aged 21 and over starting as early as 2013.

Currently, sixteen states allow medical marijuana, according to 7News, but full legalization for recreational use would set up a federal showdown over the often contentious disparity between state and federal pot laws.

The efforts of these Colorado pot advocates is part of the Campaign To Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, a collective of marijuana activist groups and individuals including SAFER, Sensible Colorado, NORML and others.

The Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act of 2012 makes the personal use, possession and limited home-growing of marijuana legal for adults aged 21 and older. It establishes a system in which marijuana is regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol is currently. The act also would allow for the cultivation, procesing, and sale of industrial hemp.

Marijuana activist groups in Colorado, including SAFER (Safer Alternative For Enjoyable Recreation), Sensible Colorado, and NORML, have begun collecting signatures to place the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol initiative on the 2012 ballot.

The act would legalize small amounts of marijuana for those 21 and older. If it passes, the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act would make Colorado the first state to legalize marijuana for recreational purposes. Additionally, the measure would legalize hemp. Colorado is already one of sixteen states to allow the use of medical marijuana. The District of Columbia also has a medical cannabis law on the books.

In order to make the 2012 ballot, backers of the measure need to gather roughly 86,000 signatures.
