Start Day Sukkot (Multi-Day Event)

Jewish holyday: Sukkot (the Festival of the Huts) takes place 5 days after Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) and commemorates the 40 year period that the Jewish people wandered in the desert after their enslavement in Egypt, during which Moses was given the Torah on Mt. Sinai and they lived in temporary shelters. The Season of Our Rejoicing, as it is also known, is celebrated by building a sukkah (hut) that Jews make their “home,” where they eat, entertain, and sometimes even sleep for the 7 day festival, in thanksgiving for G-d’s protection and the harvest.[i]

Ford Hall Forum presents Going to Pot

Speakers: Eric Steenstra (Executive Director, Hemp Industries Association), Michael Head (Researcher, Beacon Hill Institute), Cara Crabb-Burnham (Board President, MassNORML) 

Description: There is enormous potential for cannabis/hemp to aid in preserving environment and health, as well as for food, fuel, and construction. As we appear to move toward its legalization, starting with medical marijuana and decriminalization, regulatory structures around the drug are already being instituted. The question is, who will monetarily benefit from legalized marijuana...and who won’t? Will it be corporate, pharmaceutical, or political interests that win the lion’s share of profits from this plant? What kind of taxes would be put on cannabis, and according to what criteria? Would home growers be regulated as well? Join us and discover whether answers to these questions indicate why we haven’t legalized it yet, or when we might fully do so.
