By popular demand, MAPP will be holding its first public meeting where real live people will be present on Sunday, August 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the fabled Beatnik Lounge at 61597 29 Palms Hwy in Joshua Tree, CA 92252.
We are going to catch up with all the cannabis legal and medical going-ons that transpired during the pandemic lock-down as well as share stories about how our use of cannabis helped us get through the COVID crisis.
We will celebrate this most wonderful event with an ICE CREAM SOCIAL featuring ice cream sundaes - non-medicated of course. If you would like to bring a desert, some cookies or whatever (non-medicated of course again) to add to the celebration, you are encouraged to do so.
It will be great to see as many of you as possible, but if you can’t make it to the actual meeting, you can join us virtually as we will podcast the meeting via Zoom.
We will have a few door prizes to give away too including our Absolutely Fabulous silicone pipes.
I know this is controversial, but I am an RN and I work at COVID vaccination, testing and treatment sites so I always err on the side of caution. Please understand that many of our members are elderly and other high-risk community members, so we do ask that you wear a mask during the meeting. If you don’t have one, we will provide you with one.
Mark your calendar for Sunday, Aug. 7 at 6:30 p.m. so your short-term memory loss won’t cause you to miss it. All the info, including the Zoom link is printed below.

It Ain’t Over Yet – still work to be done to get cannabis as widely available and acceptable as Budweiser and Coke – so if you have about 60 seconds, here is something you can do.
Adult-use of cannabis has been legal in California for over five years. It is beyond time for lawmakers to protect the right of employees to use marijuana when they are off the job. AB 2188, which would protect the rights of employees so that employers can’t discriminate against workers or job candidates who legally consume marijuana when they are not at work and where there is no indication of impairment, is headed to a vote in the state Senate. Before it can get to the floor though, it needs to pass the Senate Appropriations Committee.
You can help by calling Appropriations Committee Chair State Senator Anthony J. Portantino’s office at (916) 651-4025. Ask him to move AB 2188 out of the suspense file (they will be so impressed you to knew to ask for this) and forward it to the Senate floor to pass the bill and put an end to unfair workplace discrimination against people who use cannabis legally. Don’t forget to say “Thank You.”
