Reader: Amendment 64 isn't full marijuana legalization, but that can still happen

Our post about a Law Enforcement Against Prohibition letter to Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney General, asking the federal government not to interfere with implementation of Amendment 64, morphed into a conversation about A64's limitations. One reader acknowledges them, but sees the act as part of a shift toward broad marijuana legalization.

Baby steps....

Of course A64 people want full legalization.. but the problem is.. that will never pass. MJ legalization needs to be eased into. (there is still a lot of fear in the public)

What you are trying to do is equivalent to trying to go to the moon without a rocket ship....trying to cross a harsh river without a bridge...

It won't work, we need to build a foundation that legitimizes cannabis.. So with this being said, you are very counter productive to the "full cannabis legalization" movement that you are preaching about.

Full legalization comes after a successful 64 implementation.
