Thousands of signatures needed for SF pot proposal

Santa marijuana signature drive
Nearly 2200 signatures needed for SF pot proposal.

SANTA FE (KRQE) – A pot proposal in Santa Fe has failed to get enough signatures needed to get the measure on the November ballot there.

Earlier this month, the Drug Policy Alliance submitted more than 7,000 signatures to the city clerk.

It turns out about half of those signatures were invalid. That means the group still needs about 2,200 more registered voters to sign the petition, to get the measure on the ballot.

But the group still has time for petitioners to collect more signatures.

The proposal lowers pot penalties to just a $25 fine and no jail time. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
