The Aspen Legal Seminar – Register Now! Reserve Your Room!

  • by Keith Stroup, NORML Legal Director February 28, 2013

    The 2013 NORML Aspen Legal Seminar registration site is now live on the NORML website, and we urge you to register now for what will surely be another exceptional legal seminar and wonderful long-weekend with friends and colleagues in the Rocky Mountains. The dates for the seminar this year are Thursday, May 30 through Saturday, June 1 at The Gant, our usual venue in Aspen.

    The program this year will include such timely topics as the legal and ethical obligations of attorneys who represent cannabusinesses; the latest science and law regarding DUID cases; blocking the government from getting your client’s email; avoiding deportation for your non-citizen clients; the changes in probable cause in those states that have some form of legal marijuana; child custody issues for marijuana smokers; various ways to effectively conduct voir dire; all you need to know about cellular telephone tracking; and using your iPhone and iPad for the defense.

    We will also be holding our annual benefit dinner at the lovely home of Chris and Gerry Goldstein on Friday evening, and we have been invited back to Owl Farm, Hunter S. Thomspon’s old homestead, for a cookout and live country music on Saturday afternoon, as guests of Hunter’s widow, Anita Thompson.

    Please plan to join us in Aspen this spring, and experience first hand what it feels like to live in a state that has fully legalized marijuana.

    Those wishing to make your hotel reservations early can call The Gant (970-925-5000), and let them know you are attending the NORML legal seminar to qualify for our block of reduced-rate rooms.

    We hope to see you in Aspen in late May.

    Regards,
    Keith Stroup, Esq.
    NORML Legal Counsel

      I was wondering two things..Suppose a medical goes on vacation to a non-medical state..they(the non-medical state) refuses to let medical that medicine and then because of which he has an incident that causes hospital care,,,can the non-medical state be liable..No 2.. would it be possible for those3 who could benefit from the use of medical but cant due to their state laws file discremination..the other taxpaying working class(the same as others) can but other have to deal with side affect damanging livers and stomach linings and etc..who cannot..isnt that discrimination

    4. I don’t write a leave a response, but I browsed a ton of comments here The Aspen Legal Seminar – Register Now! Reserve Your Room! | NORML Blog, Marijuana Law Reform. I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
      Could it be only me or do some of these responses look like they are coming from brain dead individuals?
