Los Angeles activist and former mayoral candidate Craig X. Rubin
announced today that "Beverly Hills Green Cross" medical marijuana
collective is giving a free eighth of an ounce of their "Beverly Hills
Haze" ($60.00 value) to each of the first 500 medical marijuana patients
who attend this Thursday's Planning and Land Use Management (PLUM)
Committee meetng and fill out a speaker card to speak for one minute on
one or more of the 20 hardship exemption hearings scheduled that day and
speak on the item.

"We're taking a page out of 60's activism" said Craig this afternoon,
"we need to clog the room with speakers, make it take an hour or two for
each hearing instead of the 8-10 hearings an hour they have been doing."

It should be noted that even though the hearings have not been held yet
all the items scheduled to be heard on Thursday 8/7 are already penciled
in for final disposition in front of the full city council on September
1, 2009 as if their destiny has already been predetermined.

Perhaps this Thursday will see fireworks at the PLUM committee hearing.

"Medical marijuana patients need to participate in activism and not just
capitalism" added Craig Rubin.

Craig will be on KABC radio in Los Angeles on Wednesday morning at 9:00
AM on the Doug McIntyre show discussing the cities war on post
ICO-providers of medical marijuana and also talking about his own
upcoming hardship exemption hearing this Thursday in front of the PLUM
committee.

You can listen to him live via the web at http://www.kabc.com/

I will have a full press release from Craig tomorrow.


Peace
