NOLS to host ”The History of Cannabis and its Prohibition’

As part of the Summer Reading Program, the North Olympic Library System (NOLS) presents “The History of Cannabis and its Prohibition” at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 27, on Zoom.

Registration is required to receive Zoom login.

Learn about the history of society’s relationship with cannabis at this presentation with Dr. David L. Nathan. Primary sources are featured, rather than legends and myths about the plant. There will be time for questions following the presentation.

Nathan is a New Jersey-based psychiatrist, consultant, educator, and author who is a leading advocate for evidence-based changes in drug policy, following principles of public health and social justice.

The founder and Board President of Doctors for Cannabis Regulation, Nathan has published numerous articles on the subject for local, national, and international news outlets.

Sign up at nols.org/srp or at a local NOLS library branch to join the Summer Reading Challenge. For every 30 days you read, you can receive an entry into the grand prize drawing (up to two entries).

Each grand prize drawing winner will be able to select one of the following prizes: a $100 gift card to a local book store or restaurant, or a LEGO set (up to $100 in value).

Read for 30 days and earn a color-by-number Summer Reading Challenge T-shirt — express your creativity by filling it in yourself. Track your reading through Aug. 20.

Summer Reading Program grand prizes, T-shirts, books and events are generously supported by Friends of the Library groups at all four NOLS branches.

Right: Pieces of Civil War veteran Moore Waldron’s headstone can be seen in the right-hand corner of this photograph. Historical preservationist Mick Hersey, left, and the Taylor family of Gig Harbor returned the pieces to the Pioneer Memorial Park of Sequim for their friends the Englands (Moore’s descendants). The Englands read in the Sequim Gazette about the Sequim Garden Club’s preservation efforts at the park and decided to return these pieces for restoration. Moore now will have two markers in the park, as the Veteran’s Administration commissioned a new stone for Waldron in 2017 — an article about which can also be found on the Sequim Gazettte’s website. Moore moved to Sequim with his family in 1905 and died in 1908. Moore had five children and has descendants in Sequim and Pierce County as well as other places. Moore’s great-grandson is the founder of the Waldron Endoscopy Center in Tacoma, according to Cheryl England. Sequim Gazette photo by Emily Matthiessen
