You knew it was coming. Because there are so many interest groups converging on the state legislature trying to change the provisions of the recently voter-passed Measure 91 (recreational marijuana), there are a number of lawmakers that are now trying to neuter the measure, or at least make it unrecognizable to the 56% of voters who thought they knew what they were voting for.

One side wants to allow cities and counties to tax it – the other side, as reflected in Measure 91 – would ban any local tax. One side wants to give cities and counties the right to ban recreational marijuana sales completely by a simple vote of their city council or county commission – the other side would allow a ban but only by a vote of the people, as provided in Measure 91.
