NORML's spring three-day legal seminar at The Gant in Aspen, CO was held on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, May 29-31. This annual Aspen Legal Seminar weekend has become a favorite for many of our NORML Legal Committee (NLC) attorneys.
We 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 held a special Friday night benefit party for the attendees at their lovely home in Aspen catered by Chef Chris Lanter of Aspen's famous 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 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.
