However, a coalition of Colorado stakeholders hopes to amend the personal use section of Proposition 122. It includes an organization called Colorado Counties, Inc. (CCI), the Office of the Attorney General, and various other stakeholders who are working with Colorado’s General Assembly. According to CCI’s website, the non-profit organization exists to promote interest in the administration of county government. CCI has dozens of corporate members from many different industries, including healthcare, energy, telecommunications, construction, and higher education. High profile examples include Amazon, Xcel Energy, Equifax, and Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield. Eric Bergman, Policy Director at CCI, says the coalition does not aim to overturn voters’ will by eliminating personal possession. Instead, the group plans to introduce clear limits on possession and home cultivation of psychedelics.
