Medican time again October 26/27

Nimbin’s HEMP Embassy is hosting another of its popular Medican weekends on October 26/27.

There’s a full program lined up says Nimbin HEMP Embassy President Michael Balderstone. “And as a special treat the new movie Green Light about a couple of local intrepid medical cannabis providers will be shown on the Saturday evening, with at least one of them speaking and answering questions.”

Several doctors are talking on both days. Dr Deb Waldron and Dr Pot himself, Andrew Katelaris, are both coming for the weekend and Dr John Teh from PlantMed is a popular return speaker. Dr Teh runs a medical cannabis clinic in Brisbane which is one of the few independently owned in Australia.

Lawyer Sally McPherson is coming again with legal advice as well as some first hand stories from the corridors of power in Canberra. Sally recently accompanied Lucy Haslam to a meeting with members of parliament asking them to open up access to medipot. Greens leader Richard Di Natale asked for an amnesty for those accessing the medicine. At least Jacqui Lambie was listening said Sally.

Legendary grower and breeder Malcolm Lee is speaking both days and plans on holding a special breeding workshop on the Sunday teaching people how to create feminised seeds. Deb Lynch is speaking at the Medican also. She is the current president of the Medical Cannabis Users Association in Australia with around 7,000 members. The MCUA of Australia Inc is a not for profit, patient oriented organisation that has been working since 2014 to raise awareness about the health benefits of cannabis and to lobby our politicians about the need for law reform in this area. Andrew Kavasilas, technical director for Cann Global (CGB:ASX) will fill us in on the latest from the government’s endless discussions on how to regulate us out of existence.

The Hemp Club will be displaying hand woven hemp clothes and the latest hemp building bricks they are experimenting with as well as demonstrating hemp seed oil extraction. The Australian Cannabis University will have a stall and herbalist Radic Al will be demonstrating various plant extraction methods all weekend. “We urge anyone interested in medical cannabis to come along as this is a rare chance to speak one on one to people with experience,” said Michael. “And if you would like to share your story about using cannabis for healing please get in touch on the weekend or email head@hempembassy.net

All events are being held at the Bush Theatre on the northern edge of the Nimbin village alongside Mulgum Creek and healthy excellent food will be available onsite. For further info contact the HEMP Embassy in Nimbin on 0266890326 or email head@hempembassy.net
