Marijuana legalization: Crazy For Justice's draft initiative proposes making 4/20 a state holiday

A group led by Brian Vicente and Mason Tvert has submitted eight marijuana-legalization initiatives with an eye toward the 2012 election -- and they're not alone. Legalize2012.com plans to offer a proposal, and now the advocacy outfit called Crazy For Justice has assembled a draft that, among other things, suggests making 4/20 a state holiday dubbed Cannabis Freedom Day.
