Amendment 64: Marijuana consumers need a seat at the table, says Colorado NORML

The passage of Amendment 64 will require government officials to establish rules for an entirely new industry. In advance of this step, representatives from the Colorado branch of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) are scheduled to meet tomorrow with representatives of Governor John Hickenlooper. The goal: to ensure that the voice of cannabis consumers is heard loud and clear throughout the process.
