Cannabis Journalism Day 3

Today the class went to Denver, CO’s Capital building to watch the state House of Representatives. In the two hours that we were watching the legislative process around ten bills were voted on with a majority of them being passed.

This was very interesting to watch because I personally had never been to a government legislative session and I thought there would be a lot more discussion and parties trying to block each others bills. However I did not see any of that and it seemed that all the representatives are interested in passing bills that have the potential to improve society.
