Medical Marijuana at City Hall

In response to the September 5 arrest of its co-founders and destruction of it’s medical garden, WAMM(Wo/Men’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana) will hold a patient meeting at City Hall Tuesday afternoon, September 17th. Santa Cruz Mayor Christopher Krohn, Vice Mayor Emily Reilly, city council member Tim Fitzmaurice, and county supervisor Mardi Wormhoudt and other public officials will be present to lend support and assistance to the event.

"A medical marijuana provider such as the Santa Cruz collective represents little danger to the public and is certainly not a concern which would warrant diverting scarce federal resources…” Stated Attorney General Bill Lockyer

“Outrageous,” U.S. Rep. Sam Farr said of last Thursday’s raid. “ With all the difficult problems the world faces, I find it hard to believe the DEA would further punish sick people…”

A unique organization, WAMM is a collective of patients – most of whom are terminally ill. Since many of them must face a weekly choice of paying for food or medicine, WAMM patients grow and process their own medicine.

DATE: Tuesday, September 17, 2002
TIME: 3:00pm
ADDRESS:
Santa Cruz City Hall
809 Center Street
Santa Cruz, CA
