Atlanta legalization rally Friday?
 Sadly, I cannot attend this, nor am I familiar with the group, but here is the info I have received:


Gwinnett Green is hosting its second Atlanta Marijuana March on Sept. 18. We meet and begin marching in Centennial Park @ noon and move through downtown and next to the capital. It's a lot of fun, only takes a couple hours at most and is a great way to be active. Everything is totally legal and legit so don't be afraid to walk through the streets yelling slogans about pot. Even if you can't make it please pass the word along. It's on a Friday at noon to get exposure. The last one was on a Saturday and we had a lot of protesters walking on empty streets.

Civic Duty and All That
Well, I was going to put up a voting guide, but Cyro has already posted a good one:

http://community.livejournal.com/atlanta/2036550.html

The only additions I would make are the Creative Loafing endorsements:

http://atlanta.creativeloafing.com/gyrobase/Section?oid=oid%3A5954

And the AJC endorsements

http://www.ajc.com/news/content/opinion/stories/06generalendorse.html

While I don’t especially agree with either, they do provide two of the best consolidated looks at various candidates and races

And, after you’ve voted and then scrubbed the filth of this year’s election from your body, come out to Lenny’s for:

An Election Night Party for the Rest of Us

From Paul
Hello My Friends, Fellow Campers, et al,

I have been engaged in the fight underground, so you haven't seen nor
heard to much from me. The fight goes on! And there are some
interesting developments.

We did get the 11th circuit Federal Court Decision on our appeal. The
city and it's sponsored events now have to abide to all the provisions
of the City's Festival Ordinance, including the 90 day ruling of
advance application. (We didn't win that part, but now all the
corporations have to comply!) Also the court has reaffirmed our right
to assemble, with stage and sound, without a permit or notice for up
to 90 minutes. We will have to test this in the future. And our
attorney gets PAID! Yea!

The city has also initiated a Group Assembly permit with only a 15 day
notice, which is good for up to 250 people assembled, and sound,
stage, music. (L5P has there events under this proviso, once referred
to as a "Memorandum of Understanding")

Now, I don't know all the details of the parade, but I would like
everyone's input on this. You know, "POTHEADS FOR BUSH!" "STOP THE
WAR / LEGALIZE HASH IN IRAG & AFGANISTAN!" "LEGALIZE MARIJUANA IN
MEXICO & JAMAICA!" YEA, WE COULD GET A LOT OF PRESS (FOR CHEAP!)

I AM INVITING ALL GOP MEMBERS TO JOIN US! MAYBE A CAMP PICNIC IN
FREEDOM PARK IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE PARADE? WELL, LET'S SEE THOSE
RESPONSES AND IDEA COMING IN !!!!

I am, etc.
Pablo Pothead

EDIT: The L5P Halloween parade is 5 pm on Oct. 21

I remember what weed is good for ...
From vanadium_77:

Alzheimer's disease is the leading cause of dementia among the elderly, and with the ever-increasing size of this population, cases of Alzheimer's disease are expected to triple over the next 50 years. Consequently, the development of treatments that slow or halt the disease progression have become imperative to both improve the quality of life for patients and reduce the health care costs attributable to Alzheimer's disease. Here, we demonstrate that the active component of marijuana, 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), competitively inhibits the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE) as well as prevents AChE-induced amyloid -peptide (A) aggregation, the key pathological marker of Alzheimer's disease. Computational modeling of the THC-AChE interaction revealed that THC binds in the peripheral anionic site of AChE, the critical region involved in amyloidgenesis. Compared to currently approved drugs prescribed for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, THC is a considerably superior inhibitor of A aggregation, and this study provides a previously unrecognized molecular mechanism through which cannabinoid molecules may directly impact the progression of this debilitating disease.

In short, from another source:

La Jolla, CA: THC inhibits the formation of amyloid plaque, the primary marker for Alzheimer's disease (AD), far more effectively than approved medications, according to preclinical data to be published in the journal Molecular Pharmaceutics.

Investigators at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California reported that THC inhibits the enzyme responsible for the aggregation of amyloid plaque in a manner "considerably superior" to approved Alzheimer's drugs such as donepezil and tacrine.

Georgians Opposed to Prohibition Third Annual Buds-B-Q
The GOP Lobby (Georgians Opposed to Prohibition), the lead legislative lobbyist organization dedicated to reforming drug laws in Georgia, is throwing its third annual Buds-B-Q rally 4:20 pm, March 18, at Spring Forth in Midtown Atlanta.

The event features the music of Dropbombz, Woody Garrison, Aliyah/Ashanti, and others, as well as dancers, comedians and great food. Speakers from a variety of organizations will address the real costs of the government’s prohibition on cannabis, inform attendees about proposed legal reform and other forms of harm-reduction, and motivate them to get involved in the reform movement.

The event also includes continuous screenings of “BUSTED – A Citizen’s Guide to Surviving Police Encounters”, an informative must-see film instructing citizens what are and how to flex their constitutional rights

Spring Forth is located at 726 Spring Street NW near Fourth Street. Limited free parking on the streets and ample paid lots are available in the area, but the North Avenue MARTA station is just a short walk. Admission is just a $10 donation. Doors open at 4 PM, festivities start at 4:20 PM and run until ? For more information go to: www.goplobby.org

Free Movies Jan. 26 Reminder
Spread the word to anyone you know in East Point

The GOPLobby has declared 2006 the year of Pot Pride. It will be conducting activities through the year designed to show people that they have no reason to be embarrassed by who they are and what they do. We will keep you notified of these events, and hope that you will help us spread the word.

Of course, an equally important cause is ensuring that we are all as educated and informed as we can be. The first event in the year of Pot Pride is “Zombies and Cops at the Starry Night,” a free night of films and fun at the Starry Night Theater in East Point on Thursday, Jan. 26. Join the GOP Lobby and acclaimed zombie filmmaker Parker Davidson (no, he’s not a zombie - he makes films about them) to watch two of his marvelous flicks - "Sometimes" and the zombie spectacular "Still" - as well as “Busted: A Citizen’s Guide to Police Encounters.”

In any given police encounter, with a few notable exceptions, a basic knowledge of the Constitution will help protect peoples’ civil rights and improve their chances of driving or walking away safely. Narrated by retired ACLU director Ira Glasser, “Busted” realistically depicts the pressure and confusion of common police encounters. In an entertaining and revealing manner, “Busted” illustrates the right and wrong ways to handle different police encounters and pays special attention to demonstrating how viewers can courteously and confidently refuse police searches. "Busted" was produced by Flex Your Rights, not Parker, and features no zombies.

“Busted” can be your best friend when it comes to staying out of jail. While we can’t say that Parker’s films will keep zombies from eating your brains, they will entertain and delight you. So join us Thursday, January 26 at 8 pm, and we’ll make sure you have a fun and informative time demonstrating Pot Pride.

Who: The GOP Lobby and Parker Davidson
What: “Zombies and Cops at the Starry Night”, an evening of films and fun
Where: The Starry Night Theater, 2801 East Point, East Point, Georgia
When: 8 pm Thursday, January 26
Why: Because it’s the most fun you can have learning how to stay out of jail
How Much: FREE
