Art Way directs the Colorado office of the Drug Policy Alliance, based in Denver. Way is a graduate of Florida Coastal School of Law. Prior to joining DPA, Way directed the Racial Justice Program at the Colorado Progressive Coalition, where he worked to halt the overrepresentation of people of color in the state's criminal justice system. He successfully spearheaded a legislative campaign amending state law regarding police duties during searches. As a result, Colorado has the only consent-to-search legislation in the nation that protects pedestrians as well as motorists. Art has also been deeply involved in the passage and implementation of Colorado’s marijuana legalization law.
