Jodi Duke of CORE (Cannabis Outreach & Education Network) confirms that the March 11 “Cannabis Research & History” conference at UCSF’s Mission Bay campus is open to the public and free (unless you’re a doctor or nurse getting Continuing Medical Education credits, in which case the cost is $75 and you register here).  

The presentations start at noon in Byers Auditorium (4th St. off 16th St.). Anyone having a problem getting in can call Duke at 303-981-3507 or email her. She is the opposite of bureaucratic. Outreach, indeed!
