FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUTHOR AND ACTIVIST TED SMITH BEGINS A NEW SERIES OF FREE, NOT FOR CREDIT LECTURES AT UVIC, FEATURING HIS NEW BOOK – Hempology 101: the History and Uses of Cannabis Sativa
Victoria, BC. (Sept. 12, 2012) – The International Hempology 101 Society announces that the 2012-2013 Hempology lecture series, hosted by Ted Smith, will begin today, continuing through the fall and spring semesters. This will be the first year that the lectures will be held at Cinecenta, every Wednesday between 3pm and 4pm, followed by 420 gatherings on the grass near the SUB, all of which is open to the public. This is also the first time that the lectures will be accompanied by Smith’s new textbook, Hempology 101: the History and Uses of Cannabis Sativa. What’s more, if you can’t make it to Cinecenta in person, you can watch live at www.stickam.com, or later on Hempology’s YouTube channel at youtube.com/user/Hempology101.
This is the 8th straight year that Smith has conducted these lectures, and with Cinecenta’s audio-visual system and the new textbook to accompany them, they promise to be the best series to date. Each lecture will expand upon a chapter of the book: a complete list of topics can be found on the Hempology website at www.hempology.ca/2012/09/05/4166.
Hempology 101: the History and Uses of Cannabis Sativa, was written to accompany Smith’s lectures, and is collated from material he has gathered over the years that he has been delivering them and doing other work with the International Hempology 101 Society and the Victoria Cannabis Buyers’ Club, including weekly 420 circles at UVic, publishing the quarterly newspaper Cannabis Digest, and hosting annual cannabis conventions at UVic, VIU, and UBC, with plans to expand to campuses in Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritimes later this year.
The International Hempology 101 Society is a not-for-profit organization based in Victoria, BC, that works to educate the public about hemp, marijuana, and prohibition through various live gatherings, publications, and media activities.
