Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting at a New West Hollywood
Medical Cannabis Association
The Los Angeles Patients and Caregivers Group
(LAPCG) is pleased to announce its grand opening
and ribbon cutting ceremony with the West
Hollywood Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday,
December 14, 2004. The ceremony will begin at
10:00 AM at our new home at 7213 Santa Monica
Blvd. in West Hollywood. Neighbors and community
members are invited to join us to meet our staff,
enjoy refreshments, and learn about this unique
The LAPCG is a legally-organized medical cannabis
(marijuana) association that provides safe access
to medication for patients suffering from AIDS,
cancer, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, and other
serious illnesses. The City of West Hollywood has
always supported medical cannabis patients and
providers, even in the face of federal
opposition. We are excited to be a part of this
tradition of compassion and courage.
In addition to medication, members of the LAPCG
will also enjoy free life-enhancing services.
Therapeutic massage, support groups, and
educational events will all begin this winter.
Members can also look forward to social
activities and entertainment at the LAPCG. One of
the most popular services we offer is a free peer
counseling program that helps patients and their
loved ones safely navigate the evolving legal and
cultural issues surrounding medical cannabis use.
Together with our parent association, the
Berkeley Patients Group, we provide substantial
funding for organizations that are committed to
protecting the rights of California’s medical
cannabis patients and stopping the federal
prosecution of seriously ill people. We provide
sustaining support to Americans for Safe Access,
the country’s largest and most effective medical
cannabis advocacy campaign. We have also provided
seed money for defendants in both US Supreme
Court cases concerning this issue.
The LAPCG is looking forward to meeting all of
our new neighbors and working together to help
patients suffering from AIDS, cancer, glaucoma,
multiple sclerosis, and other serious illnesses
in our community. For more information about the
