The Big Joint and a bunch of Nimbin hippies are off to the big smoke this weekend for a medicinal cannabis seminar at the Rooty Hill RSL.
Hemp Embassy president Michael Balderstone said the Sydney seminar followed popular gatherings at the Nimbin town hall in recent months.
Mr Balderstone said the Embassy had been flooded with enquiries from people looking for medicinal cannabis.
Mothers with epileptic children or brain tumours are on the phone to us while a helicopter is overhead nearby ripping up the local organic medicine which is so sought after,’ he said.
‘(NSW premier) Mike Baird’s trials sound terrific but they are really a distraction from dealing with the issue for another five years.
‘He’s pulled the wool over our eyes and sidestepped the Drug Summit idea as well.
‘He needs to deal with the current situation of supply for thousands of us for whom pot is our medicine of choice.’
Two of Americas leading cannabis experts, Chris Conrad and Mikki Norris, will be at the Rooty Hill RSL to explain how legalized medicinal cannabis was going in Colorado and the other 23 states of America.
Other speakers include Dr Andrew Katelaris, Tony Bower from Mullaways Medicinal Cannabis, patients and Dr John Kaye from the Greens.
The Sydney gathering will be held from 11am to 4.20pm at the Rooty Hill RSL.
