Please join us for NORML's spring three-day legal seminar at The Gant in Aspen, CO on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, May 28-30, 2015. This annual Aspen Legal Seminar weekend has become a favorite for many of our NORML Legal Committee (NLC) attorneys.
Our speakers this year include outstanding lawyers from across the country, and the program this year covers a wide array of legal topics, including regulatory issues that have arisen in Colorado and Washington as a result of legalization; assets forfeiture update; an update on pot and psychomotor performance; new tactics for the defense of drug cases; using mediation to resolve marijuana-related disputes;the challenges of combining a civil and a criminal practice; defending drug users charged in drug overdose cases; what you need to know about super secret government surveillance; new developments with sentencing and clemency; the ethics of setting the fee; ethical obligations during the plea bargaining process; and the latest important federal court decisions, among others. The complete three-day agenda is here.
We will have CLE credit for this program from all states that require continuing legal education credits for their attorneys.

As with past legal seminars in Aspen, Chris and Gerry Goldstein will hold 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 are 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.
