Event description

Description

Now that Hudson Valley locals can drive to Great Barrington to buy legal weed we think it's high time to have a conversation!

Join in the conversation July 23 from 6-8pm at the Kleinert/James Center for the Arts in Woodstock as we discuss the impact of weed legalization in the Hudson Valley. Panelists will discuss how weed legalization could effect local economy, healthcare, consciousness, and more.

Food provided by Bread Alone.

Panelists for this conversation include:

Andi Novick, New York Small Farm Alliance of Cannabis Growers and Supporters

Since 2010, Novick has studied biointensive farming practices, with particular interest in processes of regenerative farming, and its positive impact towards sequestering carbon and mitigating climate destruction. Her passion and appreciation for the wonders of cannabis began in 2011, when her oldest friend was diagnosed with lymphoma. It was then she first learned of the endocannabinoid system and its role in fighting disease. Her research into the extraordinary healing power of cannabis has continued, and she is now, once again, organizing, educating, and providing testimony to persuade the State of New York and its people of the opportunity that the legalization of cannabis presents to us - shifting the paradigm in the way we farm, the way we treat each other, as well as the inspiration for us to save the planet.
