Amendment 64: Marijuana consumers need a seat at the table, says Colorado NORML
"Obviously, consumers had a major role in the approval of Amendment 64, and we want to make sure they're represented to the maximum amount possible. That's what we're seeking."
McAllister is confident the governor's office has a similar understanding.
"What I take away from the fact that they're willing to meet with us and were prompt getting back to us is that they want input from longtime activists like NORML and the campaign," he says. "I don't expect commitments on Wednesday, but I think it shows they're willing to listen to the cannabis community, and I hope they'll continue with that process.
"At this point, the governor's office and advocates are all on the same side," he continues. "We're all trying to implement the will of the people."
