When: 12:00 PM * Monday, October 24, 2011
Where: Edward R. Roybal Federal Building (Downtown), 255 E. Temple Street, Los Angeles, CA 90006. Between N. Los Angeles St. and N. Alameda St.
Bring: Friends, signs, banners, horns, drums, bells, sunscreen, water, etc.!
The peaceful protest will begin with a press conference at noon. Anna Boyce, a Registered Nurse and co-author of California's Proposition 215 will speak. Ms. Boyce will be asking for a meeting with President Obama and calling for an end to the federal attacks. Other speakers will be announced soon.
The US Department of Justice (DOJ) announced a major attack on medical cannabis patients’ access to medicine last week. The DOJ says medical cannabis patients’ cooperatives and collectives in California are illegal, and ordered them to close within forty five days. The DOJ also dusted off and old Bush-era tactic, sending letters threatening property owners who rent to medical cannabis tenants with prosecution and asset forfeiture. Most of California’s legal medical cannabis patients rely on cooperatives and collectives for safe access to the medicine they need to treat the symptoms of cancer, HIV/AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, chronic pain, and other serious conditions. Tell President Obama and the DOJ to stop the federal attack on safe access and to support a change in federal law!
IDAHO hope fest
Idaho HOPE Fest is the first annual event being held in Boise, ID to advocate for the end of the federal government’s war on cannabis consumers and to promote the re-legalization of industrial hemp. HOPE stands for Hemp Offers People Everything, because it does offer people everything. We will feature live entertainment, guest speakers, vendors, and educational exhibits on cannabis and the politics, culture, science, and controversy surrounding it.
The people behind Idaho's first hope fest say it's because Cannabis, or marijuana, has been classified as a Schedule I drug like heroin, with no accepted medical value. It’s placed higher than methamphetamine, cocaine and anabolic steroids in the list of controlled substances, yet it is non-toxic and has not produced a single death in history related to overdose. Modern science has proven that cannabis does help treat and alleviate symptoms from many debilitating medical conditions and illnesses.
