'A Cannabis Affair'
The local chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) is joining forces with the Rossmoor Compassion Society for an event focused on cannabis and healthy living.
"A Cannabis Affair" is aimed at providing education about incorporating marijuana into well-being practices with assorted wellness activities including massage and yoga along with art, music, and marijuana vendors
In addition, the event will offer attendees information about how to get marijuana convictions expunged as well as the presentation of the group's Cannabis Justice Award to Contra Costa District Attorney Diana Becton for her office's efforts to automatically expunging 3,264 prior cannabis convictions.
"Almost 282,000 CoCo voters -- that's 61% -- marked their 2016 ballots for cannabis legalization," said Nate Landau, executive director of the Contra Costa NORML chapter.
"Yet, there is not a single storefront dispensary in Walnut Creek, Orinda, Moraga or Lafayette, where every single precinct voted yes. I'm most excited about the noon political roundtable, which will be a spark for change. This community is going to build a vibrant cannabis culture here with diverse small businesses and social spaces," said Nate Landau, executive director of the CoCo NORML chapter.
The free event on Saturday (Oct. 1) is open to those age 21 years old or older, and is hosted at the Rossmoor Senior Community in Walnut Creek. More information is available here.
