Celebrate Hemp History Week with the Los Angeles Greens at our May 19 meeting.
Join us for vegetarian potluck and a talk on "How industrial hemp will help California's economy." Using hemp for food, medicine, fuel, fiber, paper and up to 50,000 products made from industrial hemp; provides jobs, cultivates the soil, preserves the trees, and creates energy we can inject into our struggling economy.
The Green Party of California has long supported hemp: "Fully deregulating the growth and production of industrial hemp, with assistance to farmers for converting to hemp cultivation."
We'll also discuss state and federal hemp legislation, including the Tax and Control Cannabis Initiative relating to fully legalizing cannabis hemp (marijuana). Be sure to sign a postcard addressed to President Obama which puts an end to the status quo and lets farmers grow hemp!
When: Wednesday, May 19 at 7pm
Where: Peace Center, 8124 W. Third St., Los Angeles
