By Mason Tvert, Co-Director, Campaign To Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol
Today, we’re proud to launch our second TV ad! In the ad, Tony Ryan, a 36-year veteran of the Denver Police Department, explains how we can create safer communities if we have police focus their resources on serious crimes — not on marijuana arrests.
Lt. Ryan makes a compelling case for Amendment 64. In his 36 years in law enforcement, he cannot remember a single instance of marijuana being a cause of violence — yet since 2007, more than 50,000 arrests have been made in Colorado for marijuana. He argues that by regulating marijuana like alcohol, we can allow our police to focus on serious crimes, thereby making our communities safer.
Thanks so much for watching the ad, and for doing everything you can to help us win on November 6.
