March 29, 2013 - Americans for Safe Access- Nevada County has moved the date of their North San Juan monthly meeting to Saturday, March 30. The meeting will be held at the NSJ Senior Center at 2:00pm. Normally the group meets on the fourth Sunday of the month, but changed the date so their members can spend Easter Sunday with their families.
Topics on the agenda include an update on the Board of Supervisors meeting on March 26, progress on the phone survey, preparing for the initiative drive, and news about their pending lawsuit against the County's Cannabis Cultivation Ordinance.
Carson Blanton will introduce plans for the Cherry Blossom Festival on June 22 that will kick off with a parade that melds into a fun-filled festival. ASA-NC will be entering a float in the parade with a pro-cannabis theme.
ASA-NC rented a billboard on Hwy 49 just past the McKnight/Freeman exit to promote their key message, "Cannabis Cures." The group is hosting a free screening of the film, "What if Cannabis Cured Cancer," on April 13, at the Truckee-Donner Recreation Center, 8924 Donner Pass Road, Truckee at 12:00 noon in meeting room three. Supervisor Richard Anderson has been invited to attend the film.
"I hope Supervisor Anderson will take this opportunity to educate himself about the medical advancements that have been made in cannabis therapeutics. It's hard to make an informed decision when you only hear one side of a story, stated Patricia Smith, Chair of the local chapter. "Because we do not have dispensaries in Nevada County, there is a real need for Collectives to provide medicine for those that can't grow for themselves."
