Bush Administration Drug Czar News Conference Thursday at City Hall

John Walters, Bush's "Drug Czar" will be in Portland this week. He will be having a news conference at Portland's City Hall at 9am Thursday, August 14th.
I just called City Hall, who referred me to Oregon Partnership, who confirmed that this is happening tomorrow morning. The following is an e-mail alert from VoterPower.org John Walters, Bush's "Drug Czar" will be in Portland this week. He will be having a news conference at Portland's City Hall at 9am Thursday, August 14th, to, among other things, discuss the "myth" of medical marijuana. This will be an opportunity for Oregon's patients to demonstrate the importance of medical marijuana to their lives and families by showing up in front of City Hall and in front of the reporters gathered there for the "Drug Czar's" visit. Patients in wheel chairs can be the most persuasive of all (a picture is worth a thousand words). A successful demonstration of patient and activist unity may change the minds of many, if not those of this administration's "lap dogs". So get out there early and bring lots of friends. Where: Portland City Hall When: 8:30am Thursday, August 14, 2003
