Reverse the ban on the Recreational Marijuana Sales in Colorado Springs

In November of 2012 the voters of Colorado Springs passed Amendment 64 by a margin of approximately 5000 votes. Amendment 64 clearly advocated regulating marijuana like alcohol which logically would include retail sales. On July 23rd 2013, despite this fact, the City Council of Colorado Springs voted to ban retail sales of recreational marijuana in Colorado Springs. We respectfully demand that the City Council respect the will of the voters and reverse its decision to ban retail sales of recreational marijuana in the city of Colorado Springs.
