PLANNING MEETING “What if Cannabis Cures Cancer” FILM SCREENINGS
SAMM and Sonoma ASA are very excited to announce that we will be hosting
another round of film screenings of the movie “What if cannabis cures
Cancer”. Our February series had current & former city council members in
attendance, we met many patients who had their own testimonials, and even
doctors come to educate themselves on the benefits of cannabis with
We were overwhelmed by the positive response & request to do more
showings, they were standing room only, even in the pouring rain.
We’d had requests to host screenings in over a dozen locations, both local
& out of state. We would love to put the word out there, by having them
all, but we need to be realistic on our limited resources, and want to be
sure each screening is a success. That’s why we need your support!
We are hosting a meeting for everyone who’s interested in volunteering to
put on another series of screenings. This will be our opportunity to meet
one another face to face, and go through all the steps it takes to put it
on. It took three of us to coordinate four events (not to mention DOZENS
of donors and individual supporters), it’s going to take a much bigger
team to if we want to see more. How would you like to contribute?
First Get together of Volunteers for the film series will be on
Thursday April 7th at 3pm
99 West 6th Street @ Wilson in Railroad Square, Santa Rosa
(It’s a red brick building on the north west corner with a small parking
lot in front. Free parking in lot and on surrounding streets. Classroom is
