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.
