Conference on Future of Marijuana Reform in California Will Draw Broad
Coalition to End Failed Prohibition Policies
Saturday, March 19th at Ricardo Montalban Theater in Hollywood, California

"Next Steps for Marijuana Reform in California," a day-long gathering
of marijuana reform advocates, will take place March 19th at the
Ricardo Montalban Theater in Hollywood. In the wake of Proposition
19’s remarkably strong showing at the polls last year, this conference
will address ongoing efforts to end failed marijuana prohibition in
California, steps to reform the state’s medical marijuana laws, and
priorities for marijuana reform in the coming years.

The conference is presented by California NORML, Drug Policy Alliance,
Marijuana Policy Project, Americans for Safe Access, and VibeNation
MultiMedia. Confirmed participants include leaders of the Proposition
19 campaign and other ballot initiative proponents, Latino Voters
League, California NAACP, United Food and Commercial Workers, Law
Enforcement Against Prohibition, and California Church Impact as well
as political consultants, attorneys, medical marijuana advocates, and
public officials.

The event is open to the public, and the audience will have the
opportunity to comment and weigh in on competing proposals.

A party and reception, featuring live music, other entertainment and
refreshments, will be held at the Montalban Theater immediately
following the conference until 10 pm.

The conference follows up the sold out "Next Steps" conference in
Berkeley in January (http://www.canorml.org/nextsched.html)

  1. I feel this is a step in the right direction toward making Pot work to help our damaged economy. Marijuana is the safest drug with actual benefits for the user as opposed to alcohol which is dangerous, causes addiction, birth defects, and affects literally every organ in the body. Groups are organizing all over the country to speak their minds on reforming pot laws. I drew up a very cool poster for the cause which you can check out on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/01/vote-teapot-2011.html Drop in and let me know what you think!
