We want to make this a 'position neutral' educational seminar on the impact of Amendment 64 on existing MMJ industry in Colorado.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 14, 2012
In an effort to better inform the public and MMJ professionals, MJ Freeway is sponsoring a free webinar on Colorado's Amendment 64 by Brian Vicente, Co-director of Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol (Amendment 64) who will discuss the interplay of this new legislation with Colorado's current Medical Marijuana laws.
Brian Vicente is Co-director of the 2012 Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol and one of the primary authors of the initiative. Additionally, he is executive director of Sensible Colorado, the state’s leading nonprofit working on behalf of medical marijuana patients and providers, and is a founding member of Vicente Consulting, LLC, a law firm providing legal solutions for the medical marijuana community. Brian also is the chair of the Denver Mayor’s Marijuana Policy Review Panel, serves on the Colorado Department of Revenue Medical Marijuana Oversight Panel, and coordinates the Colorado Bar Association’s Drug Policy Project. He received the Gideon Award in recognition of his First Amendment advocacy during the 2008 Democratic National Convention, and his work has been highlighted in numerous state and national publications including the American Bar Association Journal, the Washington Post, and Time magazine.Vicente will answer all questions about the relationship between Amendment 64 and Medical Marijuana patients, caregivers, MMJ business owners, employees and landlords.
Amy Poinsett is co-founder and CEO of MJ Freeway. A successful entrepreneur, Amy has founded, directed, managed, served as COO, and served as CEO of various high revenue earning technology start-up companies in the point of sale and e-commerce spaces. For the webinar, Poinsett will deliver opening comments and lead a Q & A that will bring out concerns from both the pro and con positions. Some questions Vicente will address include:
- How do existing MMJ business owners convert from a medical marijuana license to a non-medical "retail" license? What are the pros and cons of converting?
- Many fear that Amendment 64 will simply flood the market in Colorado, driving many MMJ businesses to close their doors in the face of dropping prices. Are there any protections for them included in Amendment 64?
- How is the Department of Revenue going to implement and monitor this program, when they are already struggling to manage the MMJ program in the face of budget cuts and layoffs?
- Won't Amendment 64 just spark a federal crackdown in Colorado against all marijuana businesses, both retail and medical?
On hosting the informative webinar, Amy stated "We want to make this a 'position neutral' educational seminar on the impact of Amendment 64 on existing MMJ industry in Colorado." And she continued by saying that, "This presentation will be valuable for all impacted by the MMJ industry."
