Description

Join us at Harvest on Geary for a talk by Nola Evangelista, the author of TOKIN' WOMEN: A 4000-Year Herstory, as she explores the historic female connection to cannabis. We will be tasting Kikoko's beautiful assortment of infused teas that come in a variety of flavors and doses.

*Talk begins at 7:30pm*

A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to California's NORML chapter, which is dedicated to reforming California's Marijuana Laws.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Nola Evangelista (aka Ellen Komp) is a longtime hemp/marijuana activist and author. Currently the deputy director of California NORML, for the past 12 years she has gathered information about prominent cannabis connoisseurs at her website, VeryImportantPotheads.com, and her blog TokinWoman.blogspot.com. She has contributed articles and op-eds to various publications such as High Times, In These Times, Alternet, Cannabis Now and Cannabis Culture.

The result of over a decade of research, TOKIN' WOMEN: A 4000-Year Herstory presents an enlightening compilation of over 50 famous females throughout "herstory" associated with cannabis-from ancient goddesses to bohemian authors, jazz musicians and icons of the 60s to the film goddesses of today. Readers will recognize many of the names, like Maya Angelou and Jennifer Aniston, but "some of the more obscure women come with the most compelling stories, including adventurous explorers (Gertrude Bell, Iris Tree); pioneers in art, science and literature (Alice B. Toklas, Louisa May Alcott); and other powerful women who lived their lives according to their own rules.

~Only individuals with legally recognized medical cannabis identification cards or a verifiable, written recommendation from a physician for medical cannabis may obtain cannabis from medical cannabis dispensaries.~
