International Hempology 101’s 17th Anniversary Celebration

CANNABIS CULTURE – The International Hempology 101 Society will be celebrating 17 years of activism in Victoria by marching from City Hall to the Legislature on Wednesday, September 5, starting at 7PM PST.

The annual postcard picture will be taken at the Legislature before prize bongs are given to this year’s winners of the REACH FOR THE POT tournament along with other prizes and trophies.

Earlier in the day at 4:20PM the UVSS Hempology 101 Club will kick-off the school year in its new location beside the SUB. Last year the student body voted in favour of granting the club an exemption from the smoking bylaw, clearing the way for the 420 circles to move back to the centre of campus. So far, the school administration has not responded. The UVSS Hempology 101 Club has been the largest student club at the University of Victoria for several years.

After 17 years of work, Hempology 101: The History and Uses of Cannabis Sativa is finally available to the public. This textbook will be used as a guide for the free, non-credit lectures that Hempology president and author Ted Smith teaches on Wednesdays from 3-4PM, starting September 12 in the Cinecenta.

Hempology 101 has expanded from UVic to three other schools: UBC, VIU and Mount Allison University in New Brunswick. Plans to expand to Dalhousie, McGill, Ottawa and Toronto this year are in the works.
