SAFER seeks to make adult marijuana possession Denver's lowest law
In 2005, and again in 2006, the people of Denver made it clear they do NOT want adults arrested or prosecuted for simply using or possessing small amounts of marijuana. However, the City has continued to arrest adults in Denver for simple marijuana possession; and there have been more arrests than ever before!
Our Partner in Liberty, SAFER, has proposed an initiative that would create a city ordinance designating adult marijuana possession Denver's lowest law enforcement priority. This marijuana reform measure will be on the upcoming all-mail ballot in Denver.
The Denver City Council and Mayor say they are opposed to following the will of Denver voters and ending arrests for adult marijuana possession because somehow that would send the wrong message to children. Yet they have no problem officially partnering the City of Denver with Coors Brewing Company and promoting Coors beer in all city-operated theaters and arenas. What message does that send?
