I have received this info third hand -- but since none of the folks involved have posted it here, I thought I'd better do so -- since the first event is tomorrow!


Interest Meeting Feb. 25 with a Special Guest Speaker

We’ll be holding an interest meeting at 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 25, at Blake’s Restaurant on the west side of Manchester (353 South Main Street). If you are planning to testify at the public hearing, we would particularly like to have you attend. Appetizers will be provided at no cost, and all supporters of medical marijuana are invited.

Our guest speaker will be former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, a leading national critic of the War on Marijuana.

In other (related) news, our former executive director Matt Simon is now working for Gov. Johnson’s organization, and Matt will be attending our meeting as well. Gov. Johnson will speak to us at the beginning of the meeting, and then Matt and I will lead a discussion on how we can all prepare effective testimony for the hearing.


Hearing Scheduled for March 1

The much-anticipated [medical marijuana] bill has been introduced, and it has been assigned a number (HB 442 -- you can read it here if you’d like). A public hearing has been scheduled for March 1 at 10:00 a.m. in Room 205 of the Legislative Office Building in Concord (behind the golden-domed state house). Mark that date and time on your calendars!

If you can’t make it to the meeting but want to testify, or if you aren’t sure if you'd like to testify, please get in touch with me at
