LPSF at The 4th Annual Ed Rosenthal's Wonders of Cannabis

I'm not quite sure why this is being discussed. I already told Robinson
that we'd put his event on our Autumn postcard and on our website in
exchange for the free booth, and he agreed. The only thing we still
needed was volunteers for the booth. It sounds like we already have one
-- Starchild. I suppose I can also be there if needed. Is this really
the extent of our support of cannabis legalization support in the LPSF?
Or are there other volunteers?

Thanks, Rob -- I was not aware of your communication with Rob
Robinson. If you posted a message about it, I must have missed it.
I'm glad that he is fine with us having a booth in exchange for
putting the info out on a postcard and our website. Yes, I'm willing
to work at the booth.

Hi Rob,

I did not see your post either, so I too apologize for missing it.
