‘Marijuana boot camp’ planned to keep post-election activism high
In an effort to keep citizens politically involved after the election, pro-marijuana activists will be holding an all-day symposium to train attendees on how to organize pro-legalization efforts in their communities.
Denver has been at the recent forefront of the issue, with one 2005 voter-approved ordinance that legalizes possession of up to an ounce of marijuana by adults over the age of 21. Another city initiative, passed in 2007, makes prosecution for possession of small amounts of pot the “lowest law enforcement priority” for law enforcement.
The “marijuana boot camp,” as it’s called, will take place Nov. 15, according to the pro-legalization groups SAFER and Sensible Colorado:
Professionals will provide attendees with valuable information, training, and resources that can help YOU take action in your area to further the movement toward more rational marijuana laws in Colorado.
The event is slated from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Felix Pomponio Science Center, 3333 Regis Blvd. in Denver.
