PROP 205 ARIZONA MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION INITIATIVE

Prop 205 Arizona Marijuana Legalization Initiative – Update: We had to cancel the #Prop205 event at#ASU for now. Since we could not find anyone from the #NoOn205 side that was willing to debate the issue. After a month of trying to get two people to participate, they have made it clear they are not interested in defending their position. So, we will try to reschedule this for some time in the future;if we are ever able to find someone who is willing to stand up in public and let everyone know why they are against competent adults deciding what they should be able to put into their bodies. #Marijuana #YesOn205

Attorney Thomas Dean

YesAttorney Thomas Dean aka Tom “Dismissal” Dean has been fighting for the rights of the cannabis community for more than 20 years.  After practicing criminal defense in Arizona for several years, witnessing countless lives destroyed by the war on cannabis users, and then, finally, watching the Arizona government’s demonic and cavalier rejection of Arizona’s first medical marijuana initiative in 1996, Tom had seen enough.  From that point forward he decided to devote his career to putting an end to the draconian cannabis prohibition laws in Arizona and nationwide.  He proudly accepted an offer to head up NORML’s legal department in Washington, DC where he achieved key victories in marijuana cases of nationwide importance. While in DC, he also served as Chief Legal Counsel for “ActUP DC” and helped that organization establish a medical marijuana distribution network with the  approval of the DC’s elected officials.  

Since returning to Arizona, Tom’s practice has been devoted solely to cannabis related cases, continues to fight hard for the rights of all marijuana users, whether for recreational, religious, industrial or medical purposes.Tom has been an active member of the NORML Legal Committee (NLC) since 1995 and was later honored with a lifetime position on that committee.  The NLC is a powerful group of distinguished cannabis attorneys from across the nation.  Tom also currently serves as the Chairman of NORML’s Amicus Committee, another team of outstanding lawyers that identify key cannabis reform cases nationwide and then write briefs on behalf of the cannabis consumers in those cases pro bono.  

Tom is also active in many other non-profit organizations both a local and national level.  For example, on a local level, Tom was a founding member of the Arizona Cannabis Consumer Coalition, an umbrella organization comprised of highly effective cannabis consumer-oriented reform organizations in Arizona.  On a national level, Tom is a Founder Member of the National Cannabis Bar Association.  

Since the passage of the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (AMMA), Tom has been at the forefront of defending medical marijuana patients and their providers and has won several key victories for the medical marijuana community.
