2019 Festival Event:

The Science of Cannabis

Marijuana - It's been around forever. Heck, even George Washington grew hemp at his home in Mount Vernon. This ancient plant is now being seen in a whole new light, however, as states and nations change their laws and attitudes about the plant. Find out what science has to teach us about cannabis biology, delivery, processing, therapeutics, and addiction as Georgia Tech professor, local comedian and cannabis researcher Dr. Pete Ludovice walks us through the science of pot.

Getting there: Manuel's Tavern is accessible from the 2/102 bus, which depart every 15 minutes from North Avenue Station, or from the 816 (downtown to Emory), or a two-block walk from the 6 (Lindbergh/ Inman Park Station). It is also 1 block away from the Freedom Park Trail, which intersects the Belt Line. Free parking is also available on site.
