presents a forum on

PRISON FOR POSESSION?

Medical Marijuana and

Fine not Imprison for Posession

Monday, September 12, 6:30 p.m.
at the Loyola Park Field House
1230 W Greenleaf Ave, Chicago

"Low-level drug charges, ten grams or less, tend to get thrown out in court. If people
don’t make bail, they spend five to 21 days in county jail […] We’re dealing with addiction by
criminalizing it instead of treating it …"
- Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle

Confirmed Speakers:
State Representative Lou Lang
chief sponsor of medical marijuana legislation.
State Representative Kelly Cassidy
chief sponsor of legislation to provide amnesty for
people who seek emergency care for a drug overdose.

Judge Jamie Shapiro
Circuit Court of Cook County

At this meeting the Far North Chapter voted to support two pieces of legislation:

- House Bill 0030: Medical Cannabis
- Senate Bill 1701 Drug Overdose Immunity

The chapter also voted to endorse decriminalization of marijuana possession.
Decriminalization does not mean legalization, it simply means that those caught
will face a ticket and fine instead of the possibility of prison.
