Santa Cruz Lifts Smoking Ban For Medical Marijuana Festival

Politicians in Santa Cruz passed a five-hour exemption to a citywide smoking ban so people can light up next week during an annual medical marijuana festival.

The September 29th event is sponsored by Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana, a co-operative formed in 1993 so that seriously ill medical marijuana patients may grow and share the plant.

About 200 people belong to the co-op.

Nearly 2,000 people attended last year's festival at a local park, which raises awareness and money for medical marijuana issues.
