Hi All:

For those interested in understanding more about the human carnage/hypocrisy etc around our drug war laws and policies, an opportunity to see some good films, participate in community dialogue including the directors of the films and former Mayor of Vancouver and current Senator Larry Campbell, and support great Non-Profits – British Columbia Compassion Club Society and Vancouver Island Compassion Society.
