  1. Holy $#!+ ! Keith Stroup, founder of NORML and our Legal Council posted here on this website for the first time since the UNelection of November of ’16! Is this a sign that the Drumphurer has too many enemies to swat at to concern with the likes of our pernicious Rebel-in-Chief?
    Glad to see you back on the blog brother. 😉

    Hey, does the Aspen Legal Seminar have a child care facility just for the duration of the seminar? I’d like to see more parent-advocates get their voices heard. Or what about any lawyers experienced in Family Law in case one of my kids breaks some other kids nose by mistake? (Not saying my kids are a$$#oles but have you seen the way monkey bars are designed? It’s gonna be a nose or an arm…)

    1. We have made no provisions for child care, but if you call the Gant (the hotel whee the seminar is held), I would expect they can arrange for child care.

      1. Thanks Keith!
        $210 for a 2 bedroom condo in Aspen is a freebie!
        From the link;

        “To reserve one of our reduced-rate block of rooms (starting at only $189 per night for a one-bedroom, one-bath condo; $210 for a two-bedroom, two-bath condo; and $320 for a three-bedroom, three-bath condo) call the Gant at 970-925-5000 and tell them you are with the NORML Aspen Legal Seminar; or go to their website and enter the promo Code: NORMLGT”

  2. I think this is great!

    However, I’m pretty sure that Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III would not approve…

  3. Keith, let’s see support for that new R Congressman from Virginia who introduced a legalization bill already. I see that Beto O’Rourke has a 14% F Rating on liberty…

    1. “” 5th District Congressman Tom Garrett has introduced legislation aimed at federally decriminalizing marijuana.

      The short title for this legislation is cited as the “Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017.” If passed, this bill would take marijuana off the federal controlled substances list – joining other industries such as alcohol and tobacco. “”
