04/21/21 Steve Fox


STEVE FOX TRIBUTE: With the passing of cannabis reformer extraordinaire Steve Fox we hear from long time associates Bruce Mirken of MPP and Mason Tvert Steves associate at VS. Strategies. According to Marijuana Moment: "Steve was a lead drafter of Colorado’s historic Amendment 64, which legalized cannabis for adult use, and he managed all aspects of the successful campaign behind its passage and implementation. He also conceptualized and co-founded Safer Alternative For Enjoyable Recreation (SAFER), which laid a lot of groundwork for the legalization effort and contributed to a seismic shift in the U.S. cannabis policy debate. In 2009, he co-authored the book “Marijuana Is Safer: So why are we driving people to drink?,” which is based on the SAFER strategy.... Tikkun olam. Mission accomplished."
