Campaign Calls on Medical Marijuana Supporters to Attend Forum Tonight

San Diego Americans for Safe Access is calling on medical marijuana supporters to attend a community forum organized by local pastors Thursday night in Lemon Grove, according to TheWeedBlog.com.

“…we expect that the medical cannabis community will not be represented and that the ‘forum’ is meant to convince voters to vote against safe access to medical marijuana,” writes chapter coordinator Eugene Davidovich in an article posted to the blog by Johnny Green, a marijuana activist from Oregon who has a bachelor's degree in Public Policy:

“If you support safe access and have a little time to spare today, please come out in support of safe access. Medical cannabis and the patient community is being smeared by reefer madness propaganda, please come to the Lemon Grove Academy Auditorium today at 7pm at 7866 Lincoln St. Lemon Grove, CA and help oppose it with facts, evidence, and science.”

TheWeedBlog.com offers marijuana news and information, according to the website, such as cannabis recipes, cannabis tips and tricks, ending marijuana prohibition, grower tips, hemp, medical marijuana policy, and strain review.

On Sunday, safe access campaign organizers will host a Celebration for Safe Access in Lemon Grove in support of Proposition T, one of two medical marijuana dispensary measures that will go before local voters on the Nov. 6 ballot. The other measure is Proposition Q, the city's alternative initiative to allow dispensaries to operate but under more restrictions than Proposition T, which was put on the ballot by petition.

The event will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday at the Copa Cabana Restaurant on Broadway, and features an art show and live music. A donation of $30 per person, or $50 per couple is suggested. RSVP to attend.
