Cannabis in Tennessee will be discussed at “Lunch with the League” in Oak Ridge on Tuesday.
The speaker will be Patricia K. Freeland, professor and associate head of the Department of Political Science at the University of Tennessee, a press release said.
The meeting will be held from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday in the Social Hall of the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church, which is located at 809 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
A long-time educator, Freeland has had an extensive and interesting career in all aspects of public administration and public policy, the press release said. She has written numerous books and articles on public administration, food policy, technology policy (drones), religion, and politics.
“While citizens of Tennessee overwhelmingly support a comprehensive medical marijuana bill, no form of marijuana is currently legal in Tennessee, including the cultivation or selling of the drug,” the press release said. “The Tennessee legislature has approved use of cannabidiol (CBD) oil, as long as it is derived from hemp and not from marijuana.”
Lunch with the League is a public service program open to the community. Membership in the League of Women Voters is not required, and there is no cost to attend, the press release said.
The presentation will begin at noon Tuesday. Lunches are provided by the Soup Kitchen, and they are available at 11:30 a.m. on a first-come basis for $10, or you can buy soup for $5, or you may bring your own lunch. Coffee and tea are provided, the press release said.
“Lunch with the League” is organized by the League of Women Voters of Oak Ridge.
