For Immediate Release: Sat Feb 27, 2010

Victoria, B.C.: Canadians have to choose between 2 of their favour things tomorrow: a gold metal hockey game or a cannabis convention. Not realizing the gold medal hockey game was held the same day as the gold medal hockey game, the UVSS Hempology 101 Club and the International Hempology 101 Society will be hosting its 11th Annual Cannabis Convention Sunday February 28, 2010 at the University of Victoria. Victoria’s cannabis lovers who want to watch the game have a tough decision to make.

A large crowd is expected to gather to watch an event that will feature some of the most influential cannabis activists of the west coast. The event will be held at the University of Victoria from 1:00 to 4:00pm in the David Strong Building’s Auditorium. Admission is free and is broadcast live on for those not able to attend in person.

The convention will be held in the David Strong Building for the first time.

If the game is close we will take a break from the speakers to watch the last 5 minutes of the game on a big screen. If extra time is taken watching the end of the game we may come back into the auditorium after the next break at 4:20 and have the last speaker talk from 4:45 to 5pm.

Prominent speakers include Jodie Emery (Marc’s wife), lawyer Kirk Tousaw, as well as former police detective Tony Smith from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. Bill Finley from Hemp & Company and Jeff Tek from Treating Yourself Magazine will also be presenting. Joanne McKee was expected to attend but is unable to come because her partner cannot get his passport in time.

The International Hempology 101 Society has been advocating for sensible cannabis regulations through education and community events for the last 14 year. It is the society’s goal to help legalize cannabis by encouraging participatory education in constant passive civil disobedience.

The UVSS Hempology 101 Club, a student run club, is the largest on campus with upwards of 420 members and hosts a 420 every week throughout the school year. We teach a free weekly non-credit lecture series which offers a “Certificate of Completion” to any student or community member who attends all the classes. The lectures cover a broad range of subjects from the history and uses of hemp, law, medical cannabis products and the impact of prohibition.
