Safe Access In Danger

Colorado Action Alert From Sensible Colorado

Safe Access to Medical Marijuana is in Danger!

The Colorado Health Department is acting to restrict patient access to medical marijuana. In March the Board of Health will be voting on a rule which would rip patients out of safe caregiver relationships, and force them into the streets in search of their life-giving medicine. Help fight this threat to safe access by showing your support on March 18, 2009.

What: Solidarity event to help protect safe access to medical marijuana

Place: 4300 Cherry Creek Drive S., Denver 80246 (Colorado Health Dept. Building)

Time: Noon on Wednesday, March 18

What else: This is NOT a rally. This is a formal hearing and we NEED you to dress nice and act in a professional fashion. Signs and banners will not be allowed in the building– so don’t bring them. If you have a compelling story which you would like to share at this Hearing, please send an email outlining your concerns to brian@sensiblecolorado.org
