Marijuana Advocate Ken Gorman Dies In Shooting

(CBS4) DENVER A Denver man known as a pioneer in Colorado's medical marijuana community was shot and killed Saturday night after his house was broken into.

Ken Gorman, an outspoken advocate for legalizing marijuana, grew pot in his home on the 1,000 block of South Decatur Street.

Denver police said they are investigating the shooting, but were releasing few details Sunday afternoon. Family members told CBS4 Gorman was the victim in the crime.

Last weekend, CBS4's Rick Sallinger did an investigation on Colorado's medical marijuana law that centered on Gorman. Gorman had recently been giving seminars on how to use the law to obtain the drug even if you aren't sick.

Gorman was on Colorado's medical marijuana registry. He said he had been suffering chronic pain from bersitis.

A CBS4 employee recently approached Gorman with a hidden camera and told him he only wanted marijuana to get high. Gorman then filled a form designating CBS4's employee as one of his caregivers.

"When we passed the law we passed a great, great law," Gorman said to the CBS4 employee. "There are so many holes in it that for us, the patient, police can't do anything."

Gorman was also the host of an annual large marijuana smoke-out at the state capitol. He once ran for the state's highest office, and earned the nickname, "the governor."

Colorado is one of 11 states that has legalized the use of marijuana for medical reasons.

I hope there's some kind of misunderstanding... shit... wtf


edit: What the fuck someone probably saw him on the news and decided they wanted what he had. This is fucked up.

Damn. Idk how to react. Way too unreal/

Wow, I'm speechless. I knew he was a member and I was recently reading up on Governor. He really was a somebody. One of the most valuable posters on Yahooka.

What are they saying?

Anything from the family?

On the killing itself?

Brand New Shoe 02-18-2007 05:07 PM

I can't believe someone would do this to him.

I hope justice will be brought opun the person who did this and took away such a bright part of all of our lives.

HTAM 02-18-2007 05:08 PM

Let's get it together....
 
If you are local in the Metro area, or in Colorado for that matter hit me with a PM, I'd like to discuss something with you discreetly, please.
