Last Chance To Join NORML, Tommy Chong, Anita Thompson, And The Nation’s Top Pot Law Attorneys At The 2nd Annual NORML Aspen Legal Seminar

Washington, DC: This is your final opportunity to register to join the country’s top pot law attorneys, members of NORML’s staff and Board, as well as various select guests, at the 2nd Annual Aspen Legal Seminar. The conference will take place on Friday, June 8 through Sunday, June 10 at the Gant Hotel in downtown Aspen, one of the nation’s most marijuana-friendly cities.

Featured speakers at this year’s event include NORML Advisory Board Member Tommy Chong and famed San Francisco attorney J. Tony Serra.

Other speakers include Gerald Goldstein, past president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and legal counsel for the late-Hunter S. Thompson; Aspen Sheriff Bob Braudis; Denver attorney Harold Haddon, whose clients have included pro basketball star Kobe Bryant, Jon and Patsy Ramsey, and the late-Hunter Thompson; and Jeralyn Merritt, television legal analyst for MSNBC and host of the popular website TalkLeft.com. A complete speakers’ list and conference agenda is available online at: http://www.norml.org/index.cfm?Group_ID=6836.

After-hours festivities at this year’s event include a Friday night opening reception, a special Saturday night benefit dinner (hosted by Chris and Gerry Goldstein and catered by Aspen chef Chris Lanter of Cache Cache), a silent auction, and a Sunday afternoon cookout at the fabled Owl Farm, Hunter Thompson’s legendary Woody Creek home.

“Hunter’s love of fine hashish was no secret and neither was his love for fine lawyers,” said his widow Anita Thompson, who is hosting Sunday’s party. “This unique gathering will be a celebration, in true gonzo style, for those who work on the front lines of the criminal justice system that Hunter understood so well.”
