Coloradans voted against legalization of marijuana in 2006 after approving it as a medicine in 2000. But now lawmakers are struggling with an upsurge in dispensaries and ill-defined “medical” users. How should public policly balance freedom, virtue, prudence, and practicality in dealing with this issue? Specifically, why not legalize all marijuana?
That question, and others, will be asked and hotly debated at this Centennial Institute Colorado policy debate featuring: District Attorney Carol Chambers, State Rep. Tom Massey, State Sen. Shawn Mitchell, and our own policy analyst Jessica Corry.
The event will take place next Wednesday the 17th at the Colorado Christian University Music Center – 9200 W. Ellsworth in Lakewood – from 7 to 8:30pm. It is FREE but seating is limited.
