Robert Corry arrested: Colorado marijuana attorney taken in for public pot use

Source: Boulder Daily Camera

Robert J. Corry, the marijuana activist and attorney who handed out free joints in Denver's Civic Center park earlier this month, was arrested Wednesday for smoking marijuana in public during the Rockies game.

According to a police report, Corry and a woman were seen smoking a joint between a gate and the concourse at Coors Field when officers approached. An officer asked Corry to hand over the joint, and Corry responded, "No, I don't have to, it's legal," according to the report.

It's too bad that the champion of legalizing pot in Colorado is such a jerk.

In the last few weeks Corry sponsored joint give-aways in Denver and Boulder. The cops stayed away and let the event go forward, and they were very successful--big crowds, lots of media coverage. At the one in Boulder he even linked it to flood-relief, claiming that he was helping relieve the considerable stress that the community is under.

He's doing great work and appears to be pretty smart. It's a real shame that he's so full of himself.

2. What a stupid asshole. It's not "legal" at Coors Field. It's in their rules.

http://colorado.rockies.mlb.com/col/ballpark/information/index.jsp?content=guide

SMOKING

Denver City Ordinance 655 prohibits smoking in Coors Field except in designated smoking areas. Smoking medical marijuana is prohibited in all areas of Coors Field. All seating areas are classified as non-smoking. Designated smoking areas are marked by yellow lines and are located below:

GATES
* Outside of each main entry gate
* A re-entry hand and ticket stamp must be obtained prior to exit for re-entry

WELLS FARGO CLUB
* Outdoor terrace behind sections 214-216 (after the start of the game)
* Outside entrance behind section 247

SUITE LEVEL
* Wells Fargo Club terraces
* Outside Suite Level, left-field corner of suite entrance, across from Suite 56

UPPER CONCOURSE
* Behind sections 302, 321, 347 and near the Clocktower

MEZZANINE (blah blah blah........)



Basically, what he's doing is encouraging the Colorado legislature to limit where the substance can be ingested.

If he really wanted to do weed at a damn Rockies game, he should have brought some brownies with him.

Dork. As the kids say, FAIL.

5. Not a smart move AT ALL

People that do these kind of things will only make legalization harder to achieve in other states. Keep it at home hon!

6. But booze is just fine

 

People should be able to smoke in designated areas, and it should include pot. We have thousands of people drinking while watching a fucking game, and then go to their cars and drive home drunk. We need to take away booze from these events if they are going to pick on us pot smokers. And I don't care it's a piss Coor's stadium. Booze is why they riot after big games they claim to somehow win themselves. I bet he would have gotten less had he had a gun. Pot=BAD Gun=GOOD. And if this guy can fuck it up for everyone, then guns should be outlawed by now.

I'm tired of having to walk on thin ice over pot, but guns are a fucking free for all that can't get fucked no matter what gun nuts do.

9. "Booze" isn't just fine. Smuggle booze in, and they will toss you out on your ass.

If you want to get intoxicated at a football game using "booze," you are going to have to buy said booze from the NFL concessionaires, at hefty prices and with a decent profit to the concessionaires and the league.

It's a business decision, first--anyone smoking pot isn't buying beer, so it's cutting into their profit. They aren't running a charity. Anyone stupid enough to spend the crazy mad money to buy a ticket to one of those overpriced sporting events needs to understand they have to spend even MORE money to eat food or drink beverages inside the stadium. It's their house, and their usurious rules. You don't have any "rights" that they don't afford you, and your option is to stay home and turn on the tee vee.

Second, it's a public perception issue. Pot has a distinctive smell, and parents with children at the game, who are anti-weed, might get highly offended and upset if they smell that shit on the wind.

They have the right to limit what can be consumed in their facilities. People who don't like it can stay away. I can tell you right now, it is more likely that I will dance lead in the Bolshoi Ballet than ever attend an event at Coor's Stadium, so I really could give a shit either way.

That said, if these two aspects--the business decision aspect, and the public perception aspect--are ever mitigated, what you will see happening at Coors Field is that anyone wanting to do a little weed will have to go to a cafe on a mezzanine, buy some overpriced herb, smoke it in the NFL cafe, and then return to their seat. The folks at Coors Field are gonna get their cut--no "bringing your own from home" allowed.

8. yeah, what a jerk.

breaking a public consumption law which Denver residents voted to be the lowest priority for law enforcement BEFORE it was even legalized here. i suppose DPD has already nabbed all the jaywalkers.

for those who didn't read further, he was upset with the cop for insisting Corry hand over the MJ, which he has no right to do. he can cite Corry for smoking in public.
