Washington, DC: NORML welcomes you to join us in Berkeley, California on Friday, October 17 and Saturday, October 18, for the 2008 national NORML Conference. This year’s two-day ‘extravaganja,’ entitled “It’s Not Your Parents’ Prohibition,” will take place at the Doubletree Hotel & Executive Meeting Center in Berkeley’s beautiful marina district.
Plenary sessions at the 37th annual conference include:
o Getting the Story Wrong: How the Media Lie About Cannabis
o The Legal Marijuana Generation: Growing Up In the Age of Legal Pot
o The War on Pot Is a War on Young People
o What If We Arrested 20 Million Americans and Nobody Noticed?
In addition, on Sunday, October 19, NORML’s Legal Committee and the faculty of Oaksterdam University will co-sponsor a special, third-day session, entitled “Cannabusiness 102.” This unique, one-day seminar will outline step-by-step how to establish a legal medical marijuana business in the state of California.
Please mark your calendar now and plan to join us as we focus on the latest marijuana policy developments at the state and federal levels, celebrate our victories over the past year, and hear from the world’s leading activists and cannabis law reform organizations. Mingle with celebrities and members of NORML’s staff and Board of Directors in one of the most cannabis friendly cities in the world.
