The pro-MMC group Citizens for Safer Communitieswhom we first introduced three weeks ago — is holding a kickoff event at 1 p.m. Thursday at the Penrose Library.

The featured speakers include Mary McNeely — veteran, and member of the Colorado Springs Medical Cannabis Council — and patient Audrey Hatfield, whom we first profiled in July, and who has recently started a patients' rights group.

"Other speakers include Steve Hammers, president of Hammers Construction, who will discuss why the passage of 1A would cause local people to lose their jobs and hurt the local economy," says the release, "and Lono Ho’ala, a biochemist, author, and Kahuna priest, who will explain why the passage of 1A would drive the medical marijuana business back into our neighborhoods, making our neighborhoods less safe."
