Medical Marijuana Community Forum
Updated: Aug 13, 2020
The purpose of the Medical Marijuana Community Forum is to provide a platform for the Smithville Community to ask questions regarding medical marijuana and the impact it will have on the community. In order to facilitate an informative and unbiased forum, the coalition has reached out to members of the marijuana industry. This particular forum is less about prevention and more about bringing information to a community that is asking for it. The forum will be broadcasted live on the coalition's Facebook page @SmithvilleMOCIA on August 6th at 7pm. Speakers will include:
