Marijuana: Tamra Ward, repping employers on task force, says there's no "conflict of interest"

Yesterday, the Task Force on the Implementation of Amendment 64, charged with researching the many unanswered questions about the legalization of marijuana in Colorado, met for the first time. But not before a marijuana activist objected to the involvement of Tamra Ward, who had signed onto a letter urging the feds to override Colorado's new law. But after the meeting, Ward told us that there's no conflict.
