> Hi Everyone,
>
> A whirlwind of activity is taking place right now and you can join in
> and whirl around too.
>
> Tonight (Thursday, Jan. 31) at 6:30 p.m., there will be a meeting of
> the newly organized Riverside medical marijuana patient support group
> at the THCF Medical Clinic to put together a fundraiser for JoAnn and
> Rich McCabe. To help publicize the new group and their efforts, they
> will be calling in to our radio show at around 7:10 inviting listeners
> to come on down to the meeting and help in their efforts to raise
> funds for JoAnn and Rich. The THCF Medical Clinic is located at 647 N.
> Main Street in Riverside. Everyone and anyone are invited to attend,
> share their ideas and join the group on the radio show.
>
> On Saturday, Feb. 2 at 3 p.m. the regular monthly meeting of MAPP
> will take place at the Cathedral City Public Library. This meeting
> will be focusing on the recent California Supreme Court decision
> allowing employers to fire medical marijuana patients who test
> positive for THC in drug screens. There are actions that need to be
> taken to counter this horrendous decision including supporting a bill
> to be introduced in the California legislature to overturn the
> court’s decision as well as what patients can do to protect
> themselves at work.
>
> As usual there will be a number of other items of interest discussed
> as well as other issues brought up by people at the meeting. We will
> also have tickets available for the JoAnn and Rich McCabe Defense Fund
> Benefit Show and Auction on Sunday. Feb. 10. Plus if you have items to
> donate for the auction, you can bring them to the meeting.
>
> We have been meeting at the library for almost eight years now, so
> come on down and join in on one of the longest running meetings of any
> medical marijuana patient support and law reform group in the nation
> – or the world for that matter. The Cathedral City Public Library is
> located at 33520 Date Palm Drive at the corner of Date Palm and Dave
> Kelly, across the street from the U.S. Post Office.
>
> There has been some real movement in JoAnn and Rich’s case.
>
> First off, JoAnn and Rich have selected as their counsel Zenia Gilg
> and Danny Schultz. Zenia most recently successfully defended David
> Markarian whose prosecution by Riverside County authorities can only
> be described as meanspirited and malicious. The total retainer fees
> for the McCabe’s is $15,000.00 – $7,500.00 for each attorney. The
> attorneys have established trust accounts for each client and
> donations can be made directly to the trust accounts.
>
> Of significant interest for all you donors who want to make those
> really BIG contributions and want a tax deduction, the Patient
> Advocacy Network, a 501(c3) non-profit corporation, has agreed to
> accept donations for the McCabe Defense Fund and will send them
> directly to the trust fund set up by the McCabe’s lawyers. PAN is a
> great group that has been working with us to develop the new patient
> group in Riverside. You can make a tax-deductible donation to PAN and
> PAN will split your donation in half and mail a check to each attorney
> on your behalf. Make your check out to PAN and mail it to PAN at P.O.
> Box 93845, LA,
>
> CA 90093. PAN will mail you a tax-deductible receipt.
>
> If you would like to send your donation directly to the trust funds
> being sent up by the attorney’s office, make your check out to
> either of the attorneys and indicate for whom the funds are intended
> and mail it directly to their office at 809 Montgomery Street, Second
> Floor, San Francisco, CA 94133.
>
> Of course, you can also send donations to MAPP and we will send them
> to the trust funds set up by the lawyers as well. Make check out to
> MAPP McCabe Defense Fund and send to MAPP, PO Box 739, Palm Springs CA
> 92263.
>
> PLUS – tickets are still available for the fundraiser being held at
> Copykatz on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 3 p.m.. Get your tickets now for a fun
> afternoon with the performers at Copykatz and all your friends by

> exciting Palm Springs nightspot, scroll down to the bottom of the page

>
> Don’t forget to tune in our radio show – Marijuana – Compassion
> and Common Sense tonight (Thursday) at 7 p.m. In addition to hearing
> from the folks at the meeting in Riverside, our guest will be Ronnie
> Nauls, the intrepid and embattled operator of the dispensary in Corona
> that so effectively provided medicine for so many Inland Empire
> patients and was raided by the DEA. Ronnie will speak about what
> happened and what is happening now. As this is a call-in show, you
> will be able to phone in and speak with Ronnie by calling
> 1-888-909-1050 during the show.
