NORML's spring three-day legal seminar at The Gant in Aspen, CO was held over the long weekend of June 1, 2 and 3, 2017.
With an excellent line-up of speakers, covering a wide array of topics of interest to practicing criminal defense attorneys, as well as those who are now representing the business interests of state-legal marijuana businesses, this annual legal seminar weekend has become a favorite for many of our NORML Legal Committee (NLC) attorneys.
The Gant, a premier Aspen hotel, is the location for our seminar with discounted rates for attendees.
We have CLE credit for this 3-day program from all states that require continuing legal education credits for their attorneys.
As with past legal seminars in Aspen, Chris and Gerry Goldstein held a special Friday night NORML benefit party for the attendees at their lovely home in Aspen catered by Chef Chris Lanter, chef at Aspen's popular Cache Cache restaurant.
On Saturday afternoon seminar attendees were invited to Owl Farm, Hunter S. Thomspon's old homestead, for a cookout and live music as guests of his widow, Anita Thompson. Hunter, the celebrated writer and journalist, was a longtime NORML friend, Advisory Board member and supporter, who first joined the Advisory Board in 1973, and served until the time of his death in 2005.
If you're not a lawyer, and don't need the CLE credit, you are still welcome to attend. This is a wonderful opportunity for non-lawyers to meet national legal experts as we work our way from marijuana prohibition to marijuana legalization.
