The Southern Alliance for Medical Marijuana Announces Spring 2012 Event

I am happy to announce that "The Southern Alliance For Medical Marijuana" is going to host a Medical Marijuana Awareness Day in Nashville, TN on April 21, 2012.  We expect to have this event at the BiCentennial Mall, just across the street from the State Capital.

On Friday, April 20th, (ie 420) at 7pm in the evening, there will be a showing of the documentary "Square Grouper" by Special Guest Robert Plantshorn, aka, "Black Tuna".  He will share his story about being a marijuana smuggler, him and nearly the entire town of Everglade City, Florida back in the 1970's,   it's a fascinating story!  There will be a $7 Fee for the movie to help cover expenses.  We are considering food and a cash bar as well for Friday night.

On Friday, 420, in the mid- morning, there will be a March on the State Capitol for a call on elected State officials to pass  SB1520 in the 2012 session, which calls for Safe Access medical marijuana protection laws for hundreds of thousands of Tennesseans, allowing many to receive non pharmaceutical alternatives to control many serious physical symptoms like chronic pain, nausea,  muscle spasticity etc and, even receive scientifically proven HEALING benefits as well, not just Palliative relief, but healing from Marijuana.  The research is out there and it needs to be shared!!

We are asking all Tennesseans and any other Pro-MMJ supporters that we can get, especially from the South, to please attend and show your support.  If you own a business, please consider becoming a sponsor.

This fund raiser event will help launch statewide campaigns throughout the Southern U.S.  The goal of The S.A.M.M. is to work with other Southern State's organizations as a collective to aid in group promotion and strength in numbers.  The South is simply different from the rest of the national regions and it's going to take a serious collective effort of all southern Pro- MMJ organizations and pro marijuana groups to start getting this kind of civil liberty protection under the law.

I will add updates here as things progress.

We need volunteers with varying skills to help get The SAMM off the ground officially.  I am in particular need of someone with good web design and maintenance skills that would be willing to volunteer part time to help me with the web site.  If you have any skills you can offer, please let me know.  We are of course, always in need of donors.  Believe me $20 may not seem like you're helping much but $20 by many people, equals great resource potential.

We will also need vendors for this event.  If you want to get on the list early, please let me know you're interested by dropping me a line at the email address below.

Thank you in advance for all of your support!

Truth Fest 2011 Update

My involvement with Truth Fest 2011 has increased and I'm now the official Media Coordinator, of which I'm working non-stop on.  We're happy to announce that we have had several Marijuana Awareness groups come on board such as NORML, L.E.A.P and PUFFM and we've invited almost all of the Marijuana AND Hemp groups to have a non profit booth so we're waiting on some replys.

Stephan Molyneaux is also interested in coming, although we haven't received an official confirmation from him back,  I expect him to come through any day.  Look him up on YouTube, you won't be disappointed.

Our Special Guest is Richard Gage of AE911Truth.Org.  If you haven't seen his documentary, "Blue Print for Truth", it is a MUST See!

You can find out more about Richard Gage at the above website and at our Truth Fest 2011 website at

My job, besides finding guest speakers for the event, is to Get the Word Out!  I hope you'll help me do that by telling all of your Truth Seeker friends.
