Pot Same as Alcohol Campaign training

Here is an announcement from the campaign about this event. As you may already know, MPP is a major financial supporter of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, which is the entity running the initiative in Colorado this year to make the adult possession of marijuana legal. The campaign is holding a "boot camp" on March 18 to teach volunteers from around the state how to be effective advocates for the initiative. If you are interested in being actively involved in this historic campaign, you don't want to miss it! Here is the message from the campaign about the event: Now that the initiative to regulate marijuana like alcohol has qualified for the ballot, the campaign has exactly eight months to get its message out to Colorado voters and make sure they are ready to vote YES on Amendment 64 this November. To get things rolling, we are holding a huge volunteer boot camp on Sunday, March 18, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Casselman's in Denver (2620 Walnut Street). If you are interested in getting involved and helping the campaign, we strongly encourage you to attend this important event. Space is limited and registration is required, so click here to register and reserve your spot today! At the boot camp, we will go over the campaign's game plan, show you some of the resources that will be made available to you, and provide you with useful materials that you can take back to your community to both use yourself and provide to others. Attention women! Just prior to the boot camp, there will be a one-hour seminar from 11 a.m. to noon, during which we will specifically address the importance of outreach to women voters and discuss some plans for moving forward. To sign up for this special session, please be sure to check the appropriate box when you register online for the boot camp. This will be a volunteer-driven grassroots campaign, and we need as many people as possible to get involved at the local level to carry out activities that will build support for ending marijuana prohibition. Attending the 2012 campaign boot camp is a critical first step, so please register register http://control.mpp.or...

    As I said, the problem, among others, is with the last sentance of your quote, simply read your own post. The DOR MMED 'Handoff' is unacceptable also, giving inherant unfair advantage to the existing industry. The Voters WILL be Educated in time for the polls, don't worry Frank. Be Well.
    PS- How many letters just went out in CS?

    Once again. Stop the blow-hard act and quote the Ballot issue. If you can't quote it, then tell us what your real issue is.

    Hey Frank, the Constitutional Lawyers confirm that this is NO kinda language needing to be infused in our State Constitution. As read from the final sentance, directing the state to enact laws in this regard. Symantic Gymnastics here, either way $800k donations from Ohioan Billionaire Peter Lewis doesn't really make it a Statewide Citizens Intiative. In Colorado, you can live the Fantasy life is ALL GOOD with dispensarys and the new Industry, or you can remove yourselves to Patients nightmare

    I've checked with several people who have read the ballot issue and they all tell me they have seen no such language. Could you please post the wording you are opposed to FROM THE BALLOT ISSUE.

    Many Activists and Advocates are boycotting this initiative due to the Marijuana Driving Under the Influence Law that would be put in our Colorado Constitution. Per Se enforcement would automatically find a person Guilty of DUI-D with ANY amount of THC in their blood....NOT a fair law!
