Colorado: Support Marijuana Membership Clubs!

  • by NORML March 10, 2017

    Denver NORML

    This past Tuesday, Denver NORML hosted a very successful Lobby Day at the Colorado State Capitol. Our Board of Directors, along with several members and volunteers, visited every Senate office where they distributed a fact sheet that highlighted the merits of SB17-184: The Private Marijuana Clubs Open And Public Use Bill, and why NORML supports it. We also had the opportunity to hear from several supporters of the bill including Senate Majority Leader Chris Holbert, Representative Jonathan Singer, and Representative Dan Pabon.

    Since early 2016, Denver NORML has been on the front lines fighting for the social consumption of marijuana and will continue to lead the fight until our dream becomes a reality, but we need your support. With the passage of SB17-184: The Private Marijuana Clubs Open And Public Use Bill out of the Senate, we have an unprecedented opportunity to create access to safe, legal spaces for social marijuana consumption in Colorado, but the fight isn’t over. We are heading back to the Capitol on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 9am to lobby every member of the House and also to ask Governor Hickenlooper to not veto SB-184.

    We are a 100% grassroots, volunteer-led organization that depends on the generosity of individuals and businesses to provide financial support for our efforts. While we gladly donate our time, there are ongoing costs associated with these efforts including all of the general expenses that pertain to a day at the Capitol including, but not limited to: transportation, parking, and printing of educational materials. If you or your organization would like to help by providing services or funds, please contact us at denverisnorml@gmail.com and one of our board members will follow up with you. We also have annual sponsorship programs and can provide you with information on how to become a yearly sponsor of our organization.

    We are making history again in Colorado, but we urgently need our community allies help to ensure we are able to reach out to all of our Colorado General Assembly members as well as Governor Hickenlooper, who had indicated he may not sign the bill in its current form.

    If you’re interested in joining us, please fill out this form: NORML Lobby Day. If you can’t join us in person, please consider using NORML’s online Action Center to send an email to your legislators urging their support of SB-184.

      Tried to donate, brother, but it just links to “Paypal, session expired.” I log in, but cant find your invoice. I’ll try the laptop when I get home unless you have a better suggestion.
      I want to go to Colorado and try my legal purchase with other consumers. This is the right way to go.

      [NORML responds: Thanks Julian for your support! The paypal link that DenverNORML uses has time issues we were not aware of. You can make a contribution directly on their website: http://denvernorml.org/ ]

        Wishful thinking: “[Appointment of] Sessions expired.”

        • Julian says:

          Ha! Yeah I thought that too Mexweed. But Sessions was expired rotten long before he ever took office. He’s just being taken out to the sunlight so that not even propaganda media could cover the smell.

      Governor Hickenlooper reminds me of that two-faced ferryman character in the Clint Eastwood movie “The Outlaw Josey Wales.”

      When he was ferrying in one direction, for the Union soldiers, he sang The Battle Hymn of the Republic: “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of The Lord…”

      …But when he was ferrying in the other direction, for the southern Rebels, he sang Dixie, the anthem of the confederacy: “Oh, I wish I was in the land of cotton; look away look away look Dixieland…”

      I did click the action tab for Denver cannabis clubs. Here is the maddening, non-responsive fluff I got back from Lois Court, regarding SB-184:

      Thank you for contacting me, Mark.

      As with all bills, I’ll consider information I get from experts, input from constituents
      like you, what my colleagues have to say about this bill, and any amendments that might be added as it goes through the process. I’ll then make my decision based on the information I gather, and the final version of the bill.

      Thanks again for sharing your thoughts – I appreciate it – Lois

      Recreational Marijuana use will never be an easy sell, but remember…Sessions never had a chance at higher office until the idiot Trump came along…same with most of his cabinet picks…many see this government as illegitimate so I think most of the actions they take will be illegitimate. Legal Marijuana will weather this storm and the momentum to legalize wont stop because of a 4 year hiatus. CannaSense will be here to help. Call me for info 800.420.4751 x237
