benefit concert

9th Annual Medical Marijuana Benefit Concert

on Saturday, January 20, 2007.

It will be a full day festival showcasing a diverse selection of musicians, poets, dancers, visual artists and lots of creative interaction. There will also be an assortment of community speakers and organizations presenting information about medical marijuana. It should be a good time!!

This 11 hour event will work to raise funds and awareness for FL NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) medical marijuana campaign and the protection of patients’ rights. Previously, a person's right to use medical necessity as a defense to marijuana charges has been upheld by several appeals courts in Florida. Marijuana has proven therapeutically useful in treating numerous medical conditions including muscle spasticity, arthritis, and the nausea related to AIDS and cancer chemotherapy. Currently there are 11 states that have laws allowing marijuana to be used as medicine.

Now as we begin some preliminary organization for the 9th Annual Medical Marijuana Benefit Concert at Tobacco Road in January 2007, we are also focusing on some smaller projects with visual arts, independent films, spoken word, dancers and music. Many of these events will be at The Wallflower Gallery - an all ages venue that showcases a variety of artists in Downtown Miami.

This notice is part of the advanced promotions campaign to help to build up more public recognition for the issues concerning medical marijuana.. We are currently looking for sponsors to participate in this community event. Please feel free to contact Ploppy Palace Productions if you are interested in getting involved and helping to promote.
