Denver Hosts DNC, Let's Weed Free?
Security or weed, is the question some Denver residents are asking themselves this week. Denver is hosting the 2008 Democratic Convention, and some city officials want the police to ignore marijuana smokers.
Denver is famous for being the first American city to make it legal to possess small amounts of Marijuana. Massachusetts will be voting on a similar proposition this December. Unfortunately since Marijuana is still illegal in Colorado, the act of making marijuana legal has been largely symbolic, up till now.
As the convention nears, some city advisers are asking the police to ignore all marijuana smokers and offenses. They are saying that the entire police force should be focused more on security for the Convention
