Medical marijuana policy forum at UOG

Posted: Updated:

For those interested in learning more about the Joaquin Concepcion Compassionate Cannabis Use Act of 2013, you are encouraged to attend the University of Guam Medical Marijuana Policy Forum this Saturday. The event is hosted by UOG MPA students and will feature a panel including Police Chief Fred Bordallo, Medicinal Marijuana Advisory Council member Laura Post, Department of Public Health and Social Services director James Gillan, and many more.

Forum chair Tasha Wade said the goal is to educate the public, telling KUAM News, "From HR to what Department of Agriculture, what their role is going to be, are they going to use dispensaries, cultivation. Just a broad range of topics."

The event takes place April 25, at the UOG SBPA Building, room 131, beginning at 11am.
