Santa Cruz WAMMFEST 2005

On Saturday, Sept. 10, 2005 from 10am - 5pm, San Lorenzo Park will provide space for the third annual Santa Cruz WAMMFEST a benefit for the Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana. This celebration comes two years after the famed medical marijuana collective lost its entire crop to a raid by the DEA. The members of WAMM have come through this hard time with hope, determination and a will to keep helping patients.

In July of 2004, the city and county of Santa Cruz joined with WAMM in a law suit challenging the federal government's right to invade medical gardens that are legal under California state law. The WAMMFEST will help raise money needed to care for their sickest members, and raise awareness of the governments harsh laws against this kind of compassion. WAMM is collective not a buyer's club. We do not sell our medicine and we care for each other in many ways, beyond our medicine.

WAMMFEST 2005 gathers WAMM members and their supporters from around the World. Live Entertainment and Vendors are readily signing up. A wide range of subjects - Marijuana to Hemp - will be represented in many interesting ways. Music, Clothes, Foods, Glassware, Jewelry, Snacks, and Everything Cannabis will make for a fun day. The people involved will make it as unique as Santa Cruz is.

Q. Can I bring my kids and the family dog?

A. It's a family-style celebration and there were many children at our last festival. The city doesn't allow pets in the park, however, so you'll have to leave Rover at home.

Q. Will there be food & drink?

A. Yes! WAMM will have several food & drink booths, and will also be renting booths to food and snack vendors. Alcohol is not allowed in the park.
