Marijuana dominates short CO ballot measure list

DENVER (AP) -- Colorado is known for ballots packed with constitutional amendments and voter initiatives. But this year, Colorado voters will see a relatively lean ballot.

A marijuana-legalization question is one of only three questions up for a public vote statewide, and the other two have attracted little interest. One is a campaign-finance question that has no force of law, and the other is a revision to little-understood employee protections for state employees.

The light ballot is unusual for a state where it's easy to petition onto ballots. It also is giving marijuana an outsize role this political season.

Both sides of the marijuana debate say the issue is the biggest non-presidential question to go before a statewide voter audience.
