While the Department of Justice has been threatening medical marijuana programs around the country (see blog post below), six of Denver’s mayoral candidates came out in support of their state’s current medical program at this year’s NORML Conference. Though their level of enthusiasm may differ (Doug Linkhart’s wholehearted embrace of both the current medical system and prospects of full legalization stands out) all the candidates saw it as beneficial to their state, both to help the ill and to create an industry that provides new jobs. You can watch the key points from the first half of the debate below, with the second installment soon to follow.
