September 23, 2013 Joe Megyesy Communications Director, Committee for Responsible Regulation Denver, CO 80202 Re: Dear Joe: Thank you very much for your press release of today as reported by Westword, in which you indicated “we can debate.” I have been requesting a debate from your organization with no answer other than anti-Amendment 64 lobbyist Mike Elliott, who said “yes,” then “no.” We have cleared the evening of October 3, 2013 at Casselman’s for our debate. I am open to your suggestions in relation to logistics. The rest of your press release nearly made me re-qualify for the Medical Marijuana Registry due to symptoms of severe nausea. The implication of your fingerwagging release is that marijuana cannot help people relieve symptoms of stress. Interestingly, before your involvement in this issue, your campaign chair Brian Vicente and I submitted a formal petition to the State of Colorado to add Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder to the list of debilitating medical conditions eligible for medical marijuana. Allegations that Brian and I included in this filing, made under ethical rules requiring attorneys to make truthful statements, were that marijuana can be helpful in combating PTSD and help people to process stressful experiences, like floods. I am not sure if you’ve witnessed the flood damage first hand, but I have, and had the honor today of looking into the eyes of suffering flood victims on the Pearl Street Mall and feeling their utter gratitude for marijuana and its healing properties. This is why we legalized in the first place. Please consider withdrawing your offensive anti-marijuana press release and be more sensitive to PTSD sufferers, flood victims, and others who gain relief from marijuana. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to our vigorous debate. Sincerely, Response to Your Press Release
