Cars Flowered With Pot Legalization Literature
With Denver’s 2007 mail-in election nearly a month away, cars are already being covered with local campaign literature to support a measure that would make marijuana possession the lowest law enforcement priority.
A two page pamphlet designed to look like a small newspaper was found on car windshields around Auraria Campus yesterday, urging voters to support I-100, the city initiative regarding marijuana enforcement. The paper, which appears to have been made by the pro-legalization group Citizens For A Safer Denver, even includes brief “news stories” on the issue and how to vote. One article includes retired Denver police veteran Lt. Tony Ryan’s support of the measure, and another includes the personal stories of city residents who the paper says have been “damaged” due to pot possession arrests.
If the ordinance is passed, an 11-member Marijuana Policy Review Panel will also be organized to enforce the implementation of the law and report on its results.
