DENVER - Voters in Denver have passed a measure that makes it legal for residents over the age of 21 to possess up to an ounce of marijuana.

The measure, known as Initiated Question 100, was leading by a margin of 53% to 47% with 96% of the votes tabulated.

Opponents have said that it will have no practical effect because it would be trumped by Colorado state law.

However, 9News political analyst Floyd Ciruli says it would send a powerful message to groups around the country working to decriminalize marijuana.

He said one reason the measure passed may be because opponents presumed it didn't have a chance and were more focused on other campaigns like Referenda C and D.

Meantime, voters in Telluride narrowly defeated a proposal to move marijuana possession down the priority list of offenses for local law enforcement.

Final-but-unofficial totals show the measure failed 332 to 308.

Good...hopefully this starts a grassroots movement (no pun intended) to decriminalize the whole drug thing. Would probably save the taxpayers about 100 billion dollars a year.

Decriminilization would have nothing to do with the NFL's Substance Abuse policies.
