Events

Patients and medical marijuana advocates are planning a demonstration and protest rally outside of the San Luis Obispo (SLO) County Courthouse to remind the public of the aggressive raids and arrests that took place on December 28th and 29th of last year. A majority of the "SLO 12" have still not had their cases go to trial, despite the hearings, motions, and other court-related actions taking place every month since their arrests -- at taxpayer expense. They are being drained emotionally, financially and physically by the lack of conclusive action being taken by the District Attorney. In the meantime, they are victimized, some of them even having felony convictions showing up in their background checks before they have even gone to trial!

What: Patients and advocates protest aggressive police actions against medical marijuana collectives providing home delivery services in SLO
When: Tuesday, December 27th, starting at 9:00 am
Where: In front of San Luis Obispo County Superior Courthouse, 1050 Monterey St., San Luis Obispo
Contact: San Luis Obispo Chapter Representative Linda Hill 805-528-0808

Chapter Meetings

Tuesday, December 27th -- North County/Oceanside ASA Meeting
7PM - 9PM @ The Fish Joint, 514 South Coast Hwy, Oceanside, CA 92054
