Missouri has one of the strongest chances of reforming marijuana laws in 2014 out of any of the states. I know it comes as a surprise to some people, but the fact is Missouri is more active than virtually any other state when it comes to pursuing marijuana reform. The Show Me Cannabis campaign has held numerous town halls, fundraisers, and other events to increase awareness and start conversations across Missouri. They just announced that two of my heroes, Neill Franklin and Alison Holcomb, are coming to the University of Missouri to speak about marijuana. See below:
Join us on Thursday, November 14, to hear from two excellent speakers on the state of cannabis law reform.
Neill Franklin is a former narcotics officer and currently the Executive Director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP). Mr. Franklin will be joined by Alison Holcomb, who is the Criminal Justice Director for the ACLU of Washington State. Ms. Holcomb was the Campaign Director for New Approach Washington, the organization which spearheaded Washington State's historic cannabis reform initiative, I-502.
The event is co-sponsored by MU NORML and MU Students for Sensible Drug Policy. It will be held in Stewart Hall, Room 100, also known as Parker Auditorium. A map to Stewart Hall can be found here: http://map.missouri.edu/?bldg=37064
We hope you'll join us for this exciting event!
