No I was not aware of how it works deep down, but I do know if current legalization bills don't call for an amendment your personal growing right can be stripped from you at a later date.
Michigan is in the middle of this sort of thing right now and if a law is passed without an amendment I say vote no, because they will just take your rights from you after the bill passes.
Bottom line without a bill that includes a constitutional amendment we are just screwed.
