If all goes as it should, then on Saturday I'm flying to San Diego.
I'll be attending the California Cannabis Business Expo until Wednesday, the 8th. I'll be developing leads for future articles for a periodical that covers the field, perhaps covering the event itself as well, and I'll be helping with non-literary tasks such as matching registrants with events.
This shouldn't interfere, dear reader, with your enjoyment of this blog on its usual schedule. I have prepared upcoming postings well in advance.
I am fascinated (in a political-scientist sense) as well as pleased (as a human being who cares about others of my species) by the process slowly but surely bringing an end to the long ugly era of marijuana prohibition in the states, state by state and in open defiance of the continued presence of the stuff on the federal government's Schedule I.
This time at least: bravo for federalism.
If you're curious about the convention, here's a link: http://www.calcanbizexpo.com/agenda/ If you happen to be around San Diego, drop by!
My efforts as an openly opinionated journalist allow me to observe the process and to some extent to make a contribution to it.
So: off I go.
