9:00pm to 11:00pm: Music and mingling

Several Colorado groups are interested in putting a citizen’s initiative on the ballot in 2012 to amend the state Constitution to “legalize” cannabis, but what does “legalization” really mean? Can all these groups work together to create true legalization based on cannabis freedom? In an attempt to find unity among these groups, Legalize2012.com has organized the “Great Legalization Debates of 2012”. The goal of the debates is to discuss ideas, policy and strategy on what will work best to protect Colorado cannabis consumers from arrest, prosecution and discrimination. Colorado is a model for the rest of the country, yet we don’t have a clear idea of what is the best cannabis law for the state.

Will the Department of Revenue law enforcement officers be allowed to control all cannabis in the state, as MPP’s Colorado initiative proposes, or should an amendment be proposed to get law enforcement out of the system and let the Health Department regulate cannabis or to form an independent commission of the state’s cannabis experts?

Is Colorado ready for true “legalization”, or do we really want more regulations on cannabis?

Join us in this lively and friendly debate amongst legalization supporters to determine the best path for a Colorado citizen’s ballot initiative to amend the Constitution in 2012.

    Jesus said to do unto others as we would have them to do unto us. None of us would want our child thrown in jail with the sexual predators over marijuana. None of us would want to see an older family member’s home confiscated and sold by the police for growing a couple of marijuana plants for their aches and pains. It’s time to stop putting our own family members in jail over marijuana.
    If ordinary Americans could grow a little marijuana in their own back yards, it would be about as valuable as home-grown tomatoes. Let’s put the criminals out of business and get them out of our neighborhoods. Let’s let ordinary Americans grow a little marijuana in their own back yards.
    Here’s one way that IT IS REALLY WORKING: Arresting the criminals and collecting a fee from registered growers (and bringing in thousands of dollars to support the county budget); what a great plan! This is the way to build a better America! http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/2011/07/the-pot-republic-one-sheriffs-quietly-radical-experiment.html
    The current proposal before Congress, bill HR 2306, will allow states to decide how they will regulate marijuana. Email your Congressperson and Senators at http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml and ask them to sign on as a CO-SPONSOR of HR 2306.
    And a big THANK YOU to the courageous, freedom loving legislators, governors, and countless others who are working so hard to bring this through! You’re doing a great patriotic service for all of America!
