Sorry this is posted late but I had trouble getting into the admin for a while.

On Saturday November 15, 2008 the International Hempology 101 Society will celebrate International Medical Marijuana Day by kicking off a hiring process for an executive director to form a cannabis research foundation. There will be a rally… at the Ministry of Health at noon on Nov 15 where activists will explain how cannabis helps people with various medical problems and give a synopsis of the past year’s court cases. At no time will president, Leon ‘Ted’ Smith give away a cookie. He was arrested on Nov 15, 2000 trying to give out 420 pot cookies. In 2005 a jury convicted Ted of trafficking THC for that stunt.

The second event on International Medical Marijuana Day is the 6th Annual Silent Art Auction at the Cannabis Buyers Clubs of Canada, the oldest medical cannabis provider in Canada. The CBC of C dug out from a debt of $80,000 in the past year and the proceeds from this year’s auction will be used for the wages of the research coordinator. This year 26 beautiful pieces of art were donated made by 17 different artists, most members of the CBC of C. The silent art auction is available for viewing at 826 Johnson St until the conclusion at 4:20 Sat Nov 15.

The following ad for the job will start appearing in the Times Colonist, Monday Magazine and the Victoria News on Nov 12.
