Doctors should have the freedom to recommend the treatment they deem appropriate for their patients - including medical marijuana. Marijuana - legal as medicine under state law in 19 states and the District of Columbia - has been shown to be an effective treatment for the symptoms and side effects associated with HIV/AIDS, Cancer, Hepatitis C, PTSD, MS and other neuromuscular disorders, Glaucoma, and chronic pain. The American College of Physicians, American Public Health Association, American Nurses Association, and many other associations and organizations support the availability of medicinal marijuana.

We meet by 10:00am at Al Lopez Park(4810 N Himes Ave). When you enter Al Lopez Park let the attendant know that you are using the park, other wise they will charge you for event parking. You will be ushered to the back. Take the first left and then first right and look for the signs. We will park here because it is free then disperse in one car to paid parking which is closer to the crowds.
These meetings are an opportunity for new and on going volunteers to get together. We will give updates on the campaign, distribute any needed materials, turn in signed petitions, share stories, give any needed training, go over upcoming events, etc.
