Colorado prisons are overcrowded, at the expense of the taxpayer. A large number of these inmates are guilty only of marijuana related offenses. This has always been an unfair burden to taxpayers, a violation of medical and personal freedom, and destructive to lives, families and careers. In light of the voters insisting that marijuana become legal, it is all the more unconscionable for these convictions and sentences to stand..
It is absolutely imperative that these political prisoners are released immediately and that their convictions are purged.

Joe Garcia, Lt Governer, State of Colorado
Michael L. Bender, Chief Justice, Colorado Supreme Court
Gregory J. Hobbs, Jr., Justice, Colorado Supreme Court
Nancy E. Rice, Justice, Colorado Supreme Court
Nathan B. Coats, Justice, Colorado Supreme Court
Allison H. Eid, Justice, Colorado Supreme Court
Monica M. Márquez, Justice, Colorado Supreme Court
Brian D. Boatright, Justice, Colorado Supreme Court
John Hickenlooper, Governer, State of Colorado
Purge all marijuana-only convictions and release those jailed for such.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Prisons are a form of slavery. No one should be enslaved for using something that we have a symbiotic relationship with - it's an inalienable right.

      Because you should not be incarcerated for marijuana use, it's a victimless crime and the person using marijuana is not like a person using other drugs suck as crack/cocaine, heroine, meth, etc. By doing this we are one step closer to a free America so far away but yet we are so close.
