Staff Reports On: 05:00PM / Tuesday October 08, 2013
PITTSFIELD, Mass. - City Council candidate Donna Todd Rivers is hosting a forum on medical marijuana.
On Wednesday, Nial DeMana and Julia Germaine of Manna Wellness will be answering questions about their plans to open a medical marijuana dispensary. The event will be at 5 p.m. at Dottie's Coffee Lounge.
The talk is one of three conversations the candidate has sponsored during the campaign. The event is free and refreshments will be served.
"I learned canvassing the city that residents have a lot of questions about the status of the medical marijuana dispensary applications and the impact they will have on public safety and other issues. The best way to address those concerns is to give the residents an opportunity to speak with Manna Wellness," River said in a prepared statement.
