Weds Sept 22, 2010

Gabriola Island, B.C.: The International Hempology 101 Society presents 1st Annual Gulf Island Cannabis Film Fest to be held Saturday Sept. 25 at the Roxy Theatre on Gabriola Island, B.C.. Produced in the US in 2005, WAITING TO INHALE is the first full length film to focus upon medicinal cannabis issues. The 1st Annual Gulf Island Cannabis Film Fest will consist of a variety of activities, beginning at noon with a Stop S-10 Street Meet, the film, a discussion and raffle to conclude at 4:20pm.

The events will begin with a Stop S-10 Street Meet from 12 noon to 1 pm at the Gabriola Island ferry terminal. For over a year, the International Hempology 101 Society has focused upon encouraging people to speak out against legislation of the Conservative government to introduce mandatory minimums for “drug crimes”. Under S-10 growing as few as 6 cannabis plants will invoke a mandatory prison sentence of at least 6 months.

The movie will begin shortly after 1pm at the Roxy Theatre. A panel of individuals will answer questions from the audience after the film. Topics of interest will likely range from the Marijuana Medical Access Regulations, to dispensaries and how to make edible or topical cannabis medicines.

A raffle will be held at 4:20 pm to raise funds for the legal defence fund of the Cannabis Buyer’s Clubs of Canada, based in Victoria, B.C. Last December the bakery of the CBC of C was raided, leaving Owen Smith with charges of 2 charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking cannabis and THC. With two of the best lawyers in the country on job, John Conroy and Kirk Tousaw, victory is almost assured, but it will cost an estimated $100,000 to pay for the trial.

The Roxy Theatre is at 560 North Road, Gabriola Island. Admission is $5. More details about the movie are available at For more information see or contact Ted Smith at 250-381-4220 or
