Green means Cannabis & Campaigns

Cannabis Reform Meeting
September 10, 2012, 7pm
Calvary St. Andrew's Presbyterian Parish
68 Ashland St, Rochester, NY

Whether hemp or marijuana, there are many reasons to decriminalize cannabis. Hemp can be used as a food, clothing fiber, biofuel, and much more, while marijuana can be used medically. Join us as we learn more about these initiatives from our guest speaker.

Sarah Via is Director of Communications for Moms for Marijuana International. She is also the representative for New York State Moms as well as Western NY Moms and a member of the Cannabis Quilt project set to be unveiled in DC this fall. She is the mother of two grown children, 20 and 23.

Calvary-St. Andrews is a wheelchair accessible facility. If ASL or other interpretation is needed please contact Drew at at least 48 hours before the event.
