The Coalition for Medical Marijuana—New Jersey (CMMNJ) will host Martin A. Lee, author of Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana – Medical, Recreational and Scientific" at the Hamilton, NJ Barnes & Noble, 425 Marketplace Boulevard, Hamilton, NJ on Monday, September 30, 2013 from 7 - 9 pm.
Mr. Lee's "Project CBD" website (www.projectcbd.org) has information about the medical properties of CBD, one of the non-psychoactive components of marijuana/cannabis. Access to CBD was an issue in recent legislative action in New Jersey, the passage of S2842, which allows more strains of marijuana to be grown in the state’s Medicinal Marijuana Program.
"Smoke Signals," is winner of the American Botanical Council’s James A. Duke Award for Excellence in Botanical Literature. It is available in paperback, as an eBook, an audio book and via I-Tunes.
CMMNJ welcomed Mr. Lee with a pizza party on Sunday, Sept. 29, on his arrival in Central Jersey during his Northeast Book Tour. At the party, a local Princeton artist, Peter Stefferson donated an original artwork entitled, “Mary Jane’s High Chair” to raise funds for CMMNJ. CMMNJ is a 501(c)(3) public charity that has been providing education about the benefits of medical marijuana for the past decade. For information about “Mary Jane’s High Chair,” a unique, functional artwork, see: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/17/garden/mary-janes-high-chair.html?_r=0
We look forward to seeing you at the Hamilton Barnes & Noble!
