Brian Vicente of Sensible Colorado and Mason Tvert of Safer Alternative For Enjoyable Recreation (SAFER), who are spearheading the legalization effort in Colorado, will be the guest speakers at the Colorado Springs Medical Cannabis Council’s monthly mixer.
“Many of you have seen the commercials on television about legalizing and regulating marijuana like alcohol, so CSMCC has decided to hold a public discussion to allow the community of Colorado Springs to come out and ask questions to learn how this legalization effort may affect our State,” Jessica Hogan, the council’s communications director, said in a press release.
Tonight’s mixer will be at the Warehouse Gallery and Restaurant, 25 W. Cimarron. The mixer starts at 6:30 p.m. The discussion will start at 7 p.m.
The event is open to the public. Cost for CSMCC members is $10 and $20 for everyone else.
Organizers of the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol have said “they have more than enough signatures for this effort to make the 2012 ballot,” Hogan said in the press release.
“Hopefully you can join us Wednesday night because this is an issue we must face whether we like it or not,” she said. ” The public should begin the education process now—so we will know how to vote in 2012. “
