Mile High NORML Cannabis Rally
Thurs., Jan. 14, 2010, 11:30am - 2:00pm
Followed Gov. Bill Ritter's final State-of-the-State speech
Lincoln Park, across the street from the West Steps of the Capitol Building

The Mile High NORML Cannabis Rally on Thursday was amazing. Over 400 people attended. News reports were that, as Gov. Bill Ritter gave the medical marijuana part of his State-of-the-State address across the street in the Capitol, the rally could be heard clearly inside the Chambers. One reporter asked how we had timed it so perfectly that we could be heard inside the Capitol at the exact moment Ritter was talking about medical marijuana. It was just lucky, but we're glad all the state legislators and the Governor knew we were there.

LOBBYING TOUR
After the rally, organizer Miguel Lopez of Mile High NORML gave the first-ever Cannabis Advocate Grassroots Lobbying Tour of the Capitol. About 40 patients, caregivers and advocates attended, many of them dressed to impress in their suits and business attire. Miguel showed us all the Committee Rooms and the offices of Senate and House members. Many advocates were able to find and talk to their representatives and senators. It was a very empowering event for everyone. For most people, it was their very first experience with grassroots lobbying and meeting their elected officials. Mile High NORML hopes to do more of these tours in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

I'M A PATIENT AND I VOTE
Free stickers were given to the first 300 patients, compliments of the Cannabis Therapy Institute.
