A Canadian expert on medical cannabis is one of the keynote speakers at tomorrow’s workshop on medicinal marijuana at Nimbin Hall.
The series of medical cannabis workshops organised by Nimbin’s HEMP Embassy in the past year have been very popular with hundreds of people attending.
Carl Martel, a visiting Canadian hemp consultant, and Gregory James from Farmers Choice Organics, will address the workshop on Saturday (12 March) from 11am until 4.20pm.
Mr James, according to the embassy, ‘has been living with cancer and severe pain for a long time and understands attitude is the ultimate key on continuing to enjoy your life’.
‘It’s the only workshop we’ll be organising before MardiGrass at the tail end of April and we urge people to come and hear for themselves first hand the medical cannabis healing stories with this much aligned and controversial herb,’ embassy president Michael Balderstone said.
‘Doctor Pot’ (Dr Andrew Katelaris) is coming up from Sydney again to talk about his latest understandings of how to get the most out of using medical cannabis,’ he said.
Lismore-based solicitor Steve Bolt will be talking about the recent court cases with saliva testing cannabis users and also what new cannabis proposed legislation changes mean.
HEMP Party secretary Andrew Kavasilas will also speak about the changes, how they impact on the current situation and what to look out for when considering using cannabis for medical purposes.
Oganisers have urged ‘anyone else who would like to speak about their medicinal use or experience is welcome to just turn up or contact the HEMP Embassy beforehand to discuss if you want’.
‘Healthy hemp seed food’ will be available at the hall cafe.
