Richard Belzer moderated the much buzzed about debate on Saturday, September 25th titled ‘Medical Marijuana and the Colorado Amendment: What’s Right for You?’ addressing issues such as medical marijuana in the workplace, insurance treatment of medical marijuana, state vs. federal control, and host of policy issues raised by acceptance of medical marijuana at the state level. The A-list team of highly respected panelists involved in the controversial discussion consisted of the following:
Stan Garnett, Boulder District Attorney and candidate for Colorado’s Attorney General seat
Charlie Brown, Denver City Councilman and author of Denver’s medical marijuana ordinance
Tom Gallagher, Colorado Springs City Councilman and medical marijuana proponent of reasonable medical marijuana regulation
Joshua Kappel, Outreach Director of Sensible Colorado and recipient of the Patton Boggs Public Policy Fellowship and the Public Interest Law
“We’re pleased about the medical marijuana debate discussion results at the Plant Medicine Expo & Healthcare Provider Conference as it provided an intelligent and sophisticated discussion that was interesting and informative for physicians, nurses, caretakers, patients and citizens in attendance. For those who missed the live broadcast, they will be able to view clips that will run soon on the PME/HPC website,” states Seth Ginsberg, Co-founder of TGI Healthworks which organized Plant Medicine Expo & Healthcare Provider Conference.
The Plant Medicine Expo & Healthcare Provider Conference targets the uninitiated and under-informed patients and physicians who may be aware of medical marijuana as a potential treatment option, but who otherwise lack the understanding needed to make an educated determination on its appropriateness for their condition.

The Plant Medicine Expo & Healthcare Provider Conference is a truly educational conference designed to provide individuals suffering from chronic medical conditions with comprehensive, objective information about medical marijuana. PME/HPC also provides insights and information to providers of medical marijuana and traditional healthcare providers who are curious about the medical marijuana option and process. Plant Medicine Expo in Denver is the first of several by TGI Healthworks that are being organized in states where medical marijuana is legal.
