cannabisHumboldt County's Civil Liberties Monitoring Project will host a forum June 19 in Garberville, entitled "Cannabis Health and Safety: The Chemistry, the Economics and the Politics," featuring experts from California and Montana who have taken a "transparent" business approach to cultivating and dispensing marijuana. The Garberville Veterans Association is co-sponsoring this presentation, which will start 7 PM at Veterans Hall.

Sierra Knolle, a member the Medical Cannabis Safety Council and an organizer of the event, said the intention of the forum is to create a positive outlet for people to share their ideas.  "The intention is not to promote legalization," she said. "But, should things become legal, these are some of the things you can create."

The forum comes after activists, growers, officials and members of the business community met in March to discuss what Humboldt County will do if cannabis is legalized. The Medical Cannabis Safety Council that Knolle serves on is made up of patients, dispensary owners, advocates and growers who want to create industry-wide regulations for the industry.
