LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT by Ted Smith Cannabis Digest #21

The time has come for the work of the International Hempology 101 Society to grow from its roots in Victoria to spread into new territory. To keep up with all the exciting changes and ventures we are trying several new methods of communicating with members and the public. Writing a Letter From The President for each issue of the Cannabis Digest is one of these strategies.

Though the forums at we hope to provide more details about these emerging plans by posting minutes from our monthly board of directors meetings, committee meetings and commentary from the general public. There are some positions on the board of directors availableso anyone interested should show up at the board meetings held the 1st Tues of every month at 7:30pm at 826 Johnson St, Victoria, B.C. People can start participating by joining one of the 3 committees we have formed to help the World Society for Cannabis Research get off the ground. You can either come to the Research Committee the 1st Sat of every month, the Science Committee held the 2nd Thurs every month or the Fun-Raising Committee on the 3rd Sat each month, with all meetings held at 826 Johnson St at 2pm. We have faced many challenges in creating WSCR and have delayed incorporation until June 2010 when we hold our 1st conference in Vancouver.

In the meantime we are working on a new survey and laying the groundwork for a peer-reviewed journal. A Hempology 101 Club will be starting at the Vancouver Island University in Sept with weekly 420 meetings of the club every Thurs. We plan upon starting a club at UBC in Jan 2010 in anticipation of the conference and the publication of the Hempology 101 Textbook.

A number of Hempology 101 products have been developed, buttons, stickers, postcards and t-shirts, and will be available in several stores in Victoria soon after this goes to print. It is our intention to have more products in more stores soon, as well as make them available on-line. An on-line contest for a logo for TEAM 420 will end on June 22. TEAM 420 will make its debut at the Zone’s dodgeball tournament in July. A line of hemp sports products will be designed to help promote TEAM 420 as we sponsor various teams, individuals and tournaments. Legalization by education.
