iComply, a marijuana advocacy business founded by the Colorado Springs Medical Cannabis Council's Mark Slaugh, issued an e-mail today about five things people seeking to enjoy the state's new laws should know.
"In this new experiment, Colorado will be on the world stage as the first state in the U.S. to say that 'prohibition is more dangerous than cannabis, we need to try something new,'" reads the release. "Washington is united in this effort and has seen police departments, prosecutors, and local governments adapt to new ways of dealing with cannabis in American communities. Here in Colorado, Denver, Boulder, and other cities have dropped marijuana charges on pending cases. Employers, Sports Leagues, Governments, and Organizations are re-writing policies in this new world. We are challenged with the need to balance safety, sensibility, and change against the reality of the future. Our company is dedicated to taking on these challenges by working with community stakeholders, organizations and businesses to discuss, analyze, and adapt to the end of cannabis prohibition in Colorado."
