Asheville cannabis community holding potluck at Pisgah Brewing on July 12


The Keep Asheville NORML is raising its profile locally following last weekend’s first annual Cannabis Community Festival at Pisgah Brewing in Black Mountain. Last month, there was a potluck dinner at Pisgah.

NC NORML of Asheville is on a mission to legalize marijuana and industrial hemp in the state, region and nationwide, so be on the lookout for more events. Here is NC NORML’s list of campaigns and goals for the year.

Thanks to loyal reader Jennifer for the heads-up on this.

Cannabis is the one plant that can solve most of our problems! It is the longest mistake society has made! We can come together over this plant and live better lives! Not just for us, but for the whole planet!!!!! If we grew it FREELY we could create a community again that could really on each other!!!! Instead of a community that does not work together! Amazing Foods, so nutritional!!!! Strongest fiber that makes water and fire resistant cloths and last 3-5 times longer than cotton, Gasoline that burns 90% cleaner, medicine without major side effects, Canvas , Henry ford built a car out of it that is 12 times stronger than steel, and because it is a fiber that can bend with out breaking the material actually absorbs some of the impact when u get in an accident! o yeah , paper that is superior to paper made by wood, also made with 50% less chemicals, which saves lives because u are not poisoning the air and water!

This is the way of our past, and it is our future!!!!!! We really need to focus on these agendas! Neighbor hoods, towns, cities, counties, states, countries, lets be TRUE to each other and work together!!!!! NO MORE LIES!!!!!! NO MORE GREED!!!!! NO MORE CONTROL!!!!! IT IS TIME TO BE SET FREE!!!!

If U R a non believer, spend some time educating your self on the topic and I bet that in 2-3 hrs of studying it u will change your mind!!!! All U have to do is start googling it and following the links and your life will be enlightened!!!! MAN I LOVE U TUBE and net flicks!!!! I have seen some really good documentaries lately!!!

PS , How did this NORML post get posted on this website by somebody that does not have any authority to be posting for our organization?

Their website indicates the “potluck” was on June 12th …

Thanks man!

Thank you Murphy for catching that mix-up 🙂


Seriously??? July 8, 2013 - 12:48 pm

I’m disturbed by the Kid Zone advertised at this event.

If we were living during prohibition and there was an event to get alcohol legalized, I can’t imagine that a kid zone would be a great idea.

Furthermore, the amount of spelling errors on Asheville NORML’s website is unsettling.

Ya know, its just a Kids Zone of art making and other basically benign crafty stuff. Its not like they are teaching kids to roll blunts and make bongs, ya know? It’s a PLANT!!!! Kids love nature. I teach my kids about Hemp all the time, how great a rope it is or paper. Pretty damn harmless. And there is NOTHING wrong with their website. Seriously. Nothing is misspelled. I checked. Find something else to whine about please.
