Marijuana Legalization Supporters to Meet Up in Hollywood This Weekend in Effort to Get California Reform Back on Track
After California's effort to fully legalize pot failed in November, we told you that marijuana backers were already anticipating their next shot.
Well, it's March, and they're not backing off. Cannabis supporters say there was a strong showing in favor of Prop. 19, and the time will come soon to get a similar measure back on the ballot.
So they're banning together in Hollywood this weekend for what they bill as a "historic" conference on marijuana reform. And you're invited. Who will be there?
Organizer California NORML, Drug Policy Alliance, Marijuana Policy Project, Americans for Safe Access, VibeNation MultiMedia, Latino Voters League, California NAACP, United Food and Commercial Workers, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, California Church Impact and more.
"Next Steps for Marijuana Reform in California" happens Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Ricardo Montalban Theater, 1615 Vine St., Hollywood. Tickets are $20. (There's a $20 after party too).
