Marijuana: Activist Rico Colibri on creating Amendment 64 Shadow Task Force
Here's the Shadow Task Force press release:
The Marijuana State of The State
The Cannabis Alliance for Regulation and Education (C.A.R.E), in partnership with The Denver 420 Rally, is announcing the formation of the A64 Shadow Task Force to supplement the Governor's Amendment 64 Task Force on regulating marijuana, similar to the HuffPost Shadow Conventions. We feel the formation of such a group is needed after reviewing the task force's first set of meetings, as it became clear that Colorado needs a broader and more inclusive and diverse think tank based on real world experience with marijuana.
The purpose of the A64 Shadow Task Force is to assist in providing the General Assembly with recommendations on implementing a reasonable regulatory model like alcohol, which 55 percent of Coloradans voted for. The A64 Shadow Task Force seeks to include a broader spectrum of community stakeholders who are currently underrepresented on the Governors Task Force, such as civil rights representatives, victims of criminal marijuana laws, farmers, consumers, doctors, MMJ patients and MMJ industry members. The A64 Shadow Task Force will respond to all of the subject matter that the Governor's Task Force covers, as well as review and address additional issues, facts and observations that are not currently being addressed.
A press conference will be held with a few speakers on January 10, 2013 at 1:15 p.m. at Lincoln Park, directly across from the State Capitol between Colfax and 14th Avenue on Lincoln Street.
Anyone interested in joining or contributing to the A64 Shadow Task Force should send a resume to Rico Colibri at firstname.lastname@example.org.
