Reefer in Reality

The Medicine in Marijuana Film Screening

The biggest thorns in the paw of medical cannabis are the lack of research available on the subject and the vast amount of misinformation bandied about by both its friends and foes. Using a National Academy of Sciences report as a starting point, Ben Daitz and Ned Judge present The Medicine in Marijuana, a documentary that tells the stories of cannabis patients and practitioners. For one time only, meet the cast and crew in person at the Guild Cinema, this Saturday, Sept. 29, at 1pm for a showing of the film and Q&A. Tickets are $7 at the door.

Ragin' Like the Pagans

Pagan Pride Festival

It's fall again and time for the 18th Annual Pagan Pride Day Festival. Through education, activism, charity and community a better understanding of Paganism can be part of the higher consciousness. For the price of a canned food item, bag of rice or sack of beans you can enjoy a day filled with activities and entertainment at beautiful Bataan Park at Lomas and Carlisle. The food donations given help to feed families across Albuquerque. All food collected is donated to the First Unitarian Church food pantry. The day's activities include vendors, kids' corner, artisan gallery, workshops, live entertainment and more. Come out to see special musical guest star, Wendy Rule. Pagan Pride day takes place on Sunday, Sept. 30 from 9am to 5pm. This is an all-day event so bring a picnic basket, but if that isn't enough to satiate the hunger, check out local food trucks, with vegan and vegetarian options provided by Street Food Institute.
