Pro Pot Group Questioning Negative Marijuana Press Conference

Backers of a marijuana initiative on the November ballot want to find out if any wrong doing was done in the planning of a press conference opposing the amendment, which was held last week in Grand Junction.

According to Colorado law, a state or local governmental entity cannot make any contributions greater than $50 to advocate the passage or defeat of an initiative.

The SAFER Choice organization is seeking public records to see if the Mesa County Meth Task Force organized the press event during its regional meth conference, but the group says the two events are unrelated.

SAFER Choice has requested invoices and receipts from the Doubletree Hotel in Grand Junction, to see not only the cost of the room, but the method of payment as well.
