DENVER (AP) - Marijuana legalization could be going back to the ballot in Colorado - a prospect that infuriated pot legalization activists Friday.
    
The marijuana ballot measure proposal went public as the House started debate on bills to regulate and tax pot. One bill would state how pot should be grown and sold, and the other would tax recreational marijuana more than 30 percent.
    
The repeal measure was in the form of a draft. The draft suggested a new ballot question on pot taxes to add that recreational pot in the state constitution should be repealed if voters don't approve 15 percent excise taxes on retail pot and a new 15 percent marijuana sales tax. Those would be in addition to regular state and local sales taxes.
    
Lawmakers have only a few days left to finish work deciding how to regulate the newly legal drug.
