Amendment 64 passed in El Paso County !!!



Amendment 64, which legalizes some marijuana use in Colorado, passed by 10 votes in El Paso County, according to final election results released Tuesday.

The amendment, approved by voters statewide, trailed by 3,300 votes in unofficial county results following the Nov. 6 election. When the election canvas was finished, supporters of the controversial ballot measure had further reason to celebrate.

Amendment 64 makes possession and consumption of up to an ounce of marijuana legal, along with marijuana retail stores, and individuals can grow up to six marijuana plants. Marijuana possession remains illegal under federal law.

El Paso County had a record turnout of 292,698 voters up from 274,707 in 2008 and 283,382 voted on Amendment 64. Only the race for president attracted more voters in the county.
