Many DRCNet readers remember the work of Cheryl Miller, multiple sclerosis sufferer and medical marijuana patient/activist, who with her husband Jim lobbied and shamed numerous members of Congress and devoted countless days to the cause. Cheryl passed away in June (https://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle-old/291/cherylmiller.shtml), and friends and supporters from around the country, along with drug reform organizations, are holding a two-day memorial event in Washington, DC this September 22-23.

Cheryl's days will begin at 7:00am on Monday the 22nd, with a Memorial Table at the US Supreme Court. Sometime later to be announced, MS patients will visit the National Capital MS Society office. A half hour before sunset (roughly 6:30-7:00pm EDT), the candlelight vigil will commence, an event Cheryl had always talked about but never gotten to do herself. Then on Tuesday morning, 10:30am, there will be a press conference at the Rayburn House Office Building, after which patients and supporters will lobby Congress.

Whether you can make it to Washington next month, please visit http://www.cheryldcmemorial.org for further information on what's going on, for things you can do in your own communities, or to make a donation to the project. DRCNet is a cosponsor of the event, and we will see you there!
