ASA-NC meeting moved to Saturday


Americans for Safe Access Nevada County has moved the date of its North San Juan monthly meeting to Saturday. The meeting will take place at the NSJ Senior Center at 2 p.m. Normally the group meets the fourth Sunday of the month but changed the date so the members can spend Easter Sunday with their families.

Topics on the agenda include an update on the board of supervisors meeting March 26, progress on the phone survey, preparing for the initiative drive and news about the pending lawsuit against the county’s cannabis cultivation ordinance.

Carson Blanton will introduce plans for the Cherry Blossom Festival June 22 that will kick off with a parade that melds into a fun-filled festival. ASA-NC will be entering a float in the parade with a pro-cannabis theme.

ASA-NC is hosting a free screening of the film “What if Cannabis Cured Cancer” April 13 at the Truckee-Donner Recreation Center, 8924 Donner Pass Road, Truckee, at noon in meeting room three. Supervisor Richard Anderson has been invited to attend the film.

“I hope Supervisor Anderson will take this opportunity to educate himself about the medical advancements that have been made in cannabis therapeutics,” said chapter chairwoman Patricia Smith. “It’s hard to make an informed decision when you only hear one side of a story. Because we do not have dispensaries in Nevada County, there is a real need for collectives to provide medicine for those that can’t grow for themselves.”
