legalize it the filmProvocative Background Information As It Relates To Colorado

You are invited to a presentation and discussion on Amendment 64.  There will be a showing of the new documentary, Legalize It.  The movie explores the social justice implications of the failed War on Drugs and why marijuana needs to be legal and regulated. It celebrates the power of ordinary people of different backgrounds and political persuasions coming together on a common issue, organizing together for social justice. The film shows how legalization means rehabilitation instead of incarceration and prison and how it not only saves federal and state money, but saves lives. Come and see the documentary and talk about it.

When: Friday October 12, 2012 7pm.
Where: First Unitarian Church, 1400 Lafayette St, Denver in Capitol Hill near Cheesman Park and Southeast Denver.
Who: Presented by CHUM (Capitol Hill United Ministries): There will be presentations on both sides of the issue before the film is shown, and further discussion after the film which will be facilitated by Pastor Mike Morran (First Unitarian Society of Denver) with Pastor Paul Carlson (Our Savior’s Lutheran Church), film producer Ravit Markus and Betty Aldworth – Amendment 64 and representatives from those who are against 64.

LEGALIZE IT was made in collaboration with Willie Nelson’s Luck Films – by award-winning filmmaking duo director Dan Katzir and producer Ravit Markus (Yiddish Theater: A Love Story, Out for Love…Be Back Shortly), with producer Lati Grobman (Righteous Kill, Run for the Money).

    I concluded years ago that, the more religion is involved in this issue, the better the chance to legalize it.
    Other readers of TWB have said this site is non-partisan, and that is what a true legalizer looks like to me.

    i am conflicted. its nice to have religion support. but most of it has to do with the excessive punishments that destroys futures. im glad there supporting an end to madness, but i am at odds with the thought of them going against their religious beliefs. even for the greater good.

      When people are true to their religion, they will always support ending the persecution of millions of innocent marijuana consumers. This doesn’t mean they approve of marijuana – or not. They are just doing what Jesus/God/Budda, etc. would do by ending this monstrous witch-hunt.

    God will punish the wicked priests who have corrupted their houses of worship with 501(c) legal agreements and converting themselves into objects of the state. The devil, posing as the government, will be testing these priests in the months ahead.
