Over 10,000 Expected for Cannabis Day 2005 Celebration Saturday May 7th in San Francisco Civic Center Plaza
Musicians for Medical Marijuana, Caribbean Allstars to Headline the 6th

Annual Event
San Francisco, CA—Music and politics will punctuate the Cannabis Day 2005 celebration in San Francisco. The celebration, already in it’s 6th year, has steadily gained steam as the Bay Area’s premier cannabis event. Attendees in excess of 10,000 are expected as notable speakers Assemblyman Mark Leno, Godfather of Medicinal Marijuana Dennis Peron, Author/Activists Jack Herer, Guru of Ganja Ed Rosenthal, Angel Raich, Chris Conrad and Mikki Norris, Attornies J. Tony Serra and Omar Figueroa, CA NORML’s Dale Gehringer and a host of others address the burning issue of medicinal cannabis, the drug war and the future of industrial hemp in our society.

Musicians for Medical Marijuana will headline an all-star day of music featuring the Caribbean Allstars, Alphabet Soup, Terry Haggerty and Harvey Mandel, Los Marijuanos and the Lynnette Shaw Band. The state of the art sound system will feature new hemp cone speaker technology developed by Marin County’s A Broun Soun, Inc.

San Francisco Medical Research Foundation will set up a 44’ diameter healing dome designed to inspire, delight, heal and enlighten all who participate. Therapuetic massage, acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments will be provided in a sonic immersion bath of harmonic sound frequencies creating a deep meditative/contemplative experience.

“There is an awful lot going on with cannabis in our culture right now despite the federal government’s backward position,” said Michael Foley organizer of San Francisco Cannabis Day 2005. “As usual Assemblyman Mark Leno is on the cutting edge of cannabis politics with AB 1147, which would remove the current ban on the production of industrial hemp in California. The United States Supreme Court will have another chance before June to rule on commerce and medicinal marijuana in the case of Angel Raich and Diane Monson. San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkirimi is working on regulation, which would further legitimize medical cannabis in the City. Americans for Safe Access is awaiting a decision on a petition filed with the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services to address the federal rescheduling of cannabis. San Francisco Cannabis Day 2005 is part of a worldwide event to draw attention to and end the destructive prohibition on cannabis that plagues our planet. Science and public opinion have reached critical mass. Let’s make this change already so we can get on with other important issues facing our nation and the world.”
