Rally and Press conference on St. Patrick’s day in City Hall Park in Manhattan at 12:00 Noon. Joanne’s 10-minute talk will focus on how she supports a legalization model of drugs from a law enforcement perspective, and that includes marijuana. Other speakers include Dr. Julie Holland editor of The Pot Book: A Complete Guide to Cannabis and City Councilwoman Letita James, sponsor of Resolution 986 which supports the New York State bill that would standardize penalties of marijuana possession making possession of a small amount punishable by fine and an outspoken opponent of the NYPD’s current usages of stop and frisk procedure and racial profiling. Keith Stroup, founder of NORML, is going to do his best to attend, as well as Dominick Chaang from SSDP at NYU.
