University Colorado Students Pass Referendum

Via Cannabis News:

Colorado — University of Colorado students this week approved a measure that asks officials to ease up on marijuana penalties.

The referendum, put forth by the Boulder-based group Safer Alternative For Enjoyable Recreation, asks that university officials make sanctions for marijuana use no more severe than they are for comparable alcohol violations.

The students have put their finger on an essential question that has been unanswered by prohibitionists — “Why are penalties for marijuana harsher than those for alcohol, when alcohol is the more dangerous substance?”
School officials say they won’t be bound by the outcome. That’s going to cause a conflict.
