|Capitol Cannabis Reform Jam 2012|
Georgia marijuana activists invite all area supporters to let their voices be heard again on the steps of the Georgia State Capitol. On November 3 at 3 p.m., advocates will hold the third annual Capitol Cannabis Reform Jam 2012 to legalize responsible usage and stop arresting medical marijuana patients, according to Jonathon R. Weaver, founder of Group-Civil Disobedience (Non-Violent).
According to Dean Sines, outreach coordinator for Peachtree NORML (a local affiliate of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), the Jam is one of many events local activists have held on the steps of the Georgia Capitol.
"We have a lot of groups that help put this event together: Peachtree NORML, Georgia Moms For Marijuana, Coalition Against Marijuana Prohibition (CAMP), Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), Georgia State University SSDP, Group-Civil Disobedience, and many others," Sines told Toke of the Town.
"We have a great core group that works together here in Georgia for reform," Sines said. "We have a lot going to educate the people of Georgia and much more in the works, including bringing the Moms For Marijuana cannabis quilt to display at the Capitol.
"Let's not forget the band Force Of Habit that will rock the gold off the Dome," Dean added.
