Marijuana policy leaders in town this weekend

Dear Wayward Bill & Others:

What are you up to this weekend? No major plans? Well I have some suggestions for you. This weekend in Denver and Boulder, national drug policy experts will be presenting at three separate events. Our very own Steve Fox, MPP’s director of government relations and co-author of Marijuana is SAFER: so why are we driving people to drink?, will be speaking at two of these events.

On Saturday night, November 6, Steve will be speaking at the Mile High Marijuana Summit at the Holiday Inn Denver East. The Summit will be an opportunity for Colorado activists and dispensary owners to meet with national experts for an evening in the Mile High city to assess the results of recent elections, discuss implications, and strategize together in light of these results. 

What: Steve Fox and other national experts, including Ethan Nadelmann (Drug Policy Alliance), Mason Tvert (SAFER), Brian Vicente (Sensible Colorado), Aaron Houston (Students for Sensible Drug Policy) and Jeff Jones (Prop. 19), will be speaking at the Mile High Marijuana Summit

Prior to his speaking engagement in Denver, Steve will be speaking in Boulder as a member of a “Legalize Colorado” panel at Students for Sensible Drug Policy’s first Mountain Plains Regional Conference. This conference will take place at the University of Colorado, Boulder on Saturday, November 6.
