Tuesday May, 22, 2012

Join us for  a thought provoking conversation about the growing momentum to end marijuana prohibition in Colorado and how this will positively impact our communities.  Some of the questions that will be addressed include:

  • How has marijuana prohibition detrimentally impacted communities of color?
  • What are the costs of marijuana prohibition?
  • How would taxation and legal regulation of marijuana save money and free up our limited criminal justice resources?
  • What are the medical applications of marijuana?
  • How would ending marijuana prohibition benefit public health?

          Speakers:  Neill Franklin, Executive Director, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, Art Way, Colorado Manager, Drug Policy Alliance,

                            Brian Vincente, Director, Sensible Colorado.  Dr. Alexandre Padilla, Professor, Metro State.  Hans Meyer, Attorney and
