Celebrate National Hemp History Week with the Green Party on Wednesday, May 19 at 7pm.
We'll have special guest speakers and a vegetarian potluck.
There is a lot to discuss:
The Los Angeles City Council recently passed an ordinance regulating -- and shutting down many -- medical marijuana dispensaries in the city. The ordinance takes effect in June, but a group representing medical marijuana collectives are suing to stop itfrom taking effect.
Reason magazine has a long article on the rise of medical marijuana dispensaries in los angeles, and the backlash that led to the city ordinance.
Meanwhile, a statewide proposition to legalize and tax marijuana has been placed on the November 2 ballot.
But we will also hear about other uses for cannabis.
