UCSD Nurses arranged for a private showing of the movie “Weed the People.”

“When I saw the Movie was scheduled I contacted Melissa Hamilton and found out she is a Nurse at UCSD and a single mom and works the night shift so I offered to help promote the movie” says Cathy Bliss, the Director of Community Outreach for Mankind Dispensary.

Bliss says, “100 tickets needed to be purchased to make the event happen so I volunteered to help spread the word and attract some…vendors to help with the event. We got great support from our vendors so we could offer all movie-goers special coupons on products similar to what were used by the families in the Documentary.”

Please come learn how cannabis helped kids with cancer.

“Cannabis has been off-limits to doctors and researchers in the US for the past 80 years, but recently scientists have discovered its anti-cancer properties. Armed with only these laboratory studies, desperate parents obtain cannabis oil from underground sources to save their children from childhood cancers. “Weed the People” follows these families through uncharted waters as they take their children’s survival into their own hands.” states the Documentary webpage.

The “Weed the People’” website says,”Medical marijuana has the potential to save lives, but existing legislation prohibits millions of Americans from experiencing the life changing benefits of cannabis as a cancer treatment. From filmmakers Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein, this look
beyond politics and propaganda will challenge everything you might have known about cannabis and reveals the brave stories of ordinary families who are exploring the benefits of medical marijuana to save the lives of their most precious loved ones – their children. “

Special showing of “Weed the People” is Monday January 28, 2019 at 6:30pm at UltraStar Mission Valley, 7510 Hazard Center Drive, San Diego, CA 92108
