Mon. Oct. 25 7:30 pm Marijuana Vs. the Supreme Court -Berkeley

The Coalition for a Democratic Pacifica invites you to a panel discussion on Marijuana Vs. the Supreme Court - A discussion on upcoming legal challenges and related issues.

Panelists include:

Dr. Mike Alcalay:
Medical director of the Oakland Cannabis Buyers Cooperative, an organization challenged in the Supreme Court case.

Dr Tod Mikuriya:
Author of "Marijuana: Medical Information" and Director of investigations on marijuana for the National Institute of Mental Health, U.S.A. 1967 including recent activities and works.

Dr. Ed Rosenthal:
" The most harmful and dangerous aspect of marijuana is governmental regulation. The laws that prohibit the use of marijuana with medical aims constitute cruel and un-usual punishment that inflicts on the victims of the diseases."

Mrs. Angel Raich:The lead plaintiff in a lawsuit (Raich v. Ashcroft) filed against the US Attorney General.

(On December 16, 2003, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco issued an opinion reversing and remanding the case Raich v. Ashcroft to the district court with instructions to enter a preliminary injunction, as sought by the patients and caregivers. The Federal Government is challenging this decision because it bars federal drug agents from interfering with the growing and use of marijuana by two California women (Angel Raich of Oakland and Diane Monson of Oroville in Butte County).
