Best Medical Marijuana Advocate Denver 2010 - Wanda James and Scott Durrah

Readers' Choice: Mason Tvert

The ganja's all here. At 8 Rivers, the restaurant they moved to LoDo in 2008, Wanda James and Scott Durrah serve up the flavors of the Caribbean. But their interest in that area's lifestyle isn't limited to the cuisine, as the portrait of Bob Marley on the wall proclaims. This politically connected couple opened a dispensary, Apothecary of Colorado, in December, where they feature homegrown strains, offer industry nights for restaurant workers and tout the very practical cooking class for medical marijuana patients they hold at 8 Rivers. While many medical marijuana advocates exude so much hot air, James and Durrah are the toke of the town.

Very very well done to have brought this herb out in a safe, public, professional and controlled way. Best to you and your continued success Wanda!

What a joke!

Wow, Wanda has been involved in med. mj. for only a few months, maybe a year at this point. What about all the long-time advocates that are actually helping patients and not trying to sell them out for a good business deal with the Department of Revenue? Maybe someone with an actual track record of positive efforts would have been more appropriate. Don't be fooled by this WW blog readers. Anyone that is willing to help the government set up a system to collect video and all other data on marijuana purchases and share it with law enforcement is not a friend to patients.

Wanda James helped give us HB1284, which destroyed patient rights in the Constitution. Since all patients hate her for this, how does it make her advocate of the year? Also, she was involved in the fundraising scandal with CMMR which has never been resolved. http://blogs.westword.com/late...

Surely, there is someone more worthy of this "award" than she is.
