Damn Sam Presents in San Francisco The 4th Annual Ed Rosenthal's Wonders of Cannabs Oct. 25 & 26, 2008 Golden Gate Park - Botanical Gardens - Hall of Flowers San Francisco, CA

Roll it, weave it, smoke it, eat it; the benefits of cannabis and hemp are featured in this two-day concert, expo and festival.

San Francisco, CA - Pot, weed, bud, herb, hemp, ganja and grass; whatever you choose to call it, the cannabis plant has permeated the fabric of American culture and counterculture, with the San Francisco Bay area a hot-bed for continued activism and debate. The Wonders of Cannabis Festival returns for the 4th year to the Hall of Flowers in the Botanical gardens in Golden Gate Park.

The event showcases live music, comedy, speakers, forums, and vendors. The enlightening two-days are meant to educate and celebrate this versatile plant and the dynamic culture that has surrounded it for over five thousand years, and will touch on important topics such as user rights, the many uses and advances in research. The festival will feature a celebration of the craftsmanship and artistry alive within the culture. Each day you get a chance to compete in the popular Rolling Contests with prizes for the fastest, longest, fattest, and best one-handed joints. "Cannabis is a helpful herb used by millions of people," says Ed Rosenthal, activist and founder of the event. "We want to educate the public about the truth gained through legitimate research." In order to playfully, yet pointedly, draw attention to the magical qualities of the herb, Ed will appear at the event in a costume with cannabis elements to add flare. Wonders of Cannabis is a fundraiser in support of Green Aid, a medical marijuana legal defense and education fund based in Oakland, CA as well as NY NORML, NY State CAN and other pro-freedom activism.

Founder Ed Rosenthal is recognized worldwide as an authority on marijuana. In his thirty-plus years as a cannabis expert, he has served as a columnist for High Times, Cannabis Culture and Skunk Magazines. He has written or edited more than a dozen books about marijuana cultivation and social policy.
