South Bay Medi-Pot Patients Have a New Tool
Website lists canna-businesses, activist resources
DALY CITY, CA - APRIL 18: A bowl of medicinal marijuana is displayed in a booth at The International Cannabis and Hemp Expo April 18, 2010 at the Cow Palace in Daly City, California. The two day Cannabis and Hemp Expo features speakers, retailers selling medical marijuana smoking paraphernalia and a special tent available for medical marijuana card holders to smoke their medicine. Voters in California will consider a measure on the November general election ballot that could make the State the first in the nation to legalize the growing of a limited amount of marijuana for private use.

Medical marijuana patients San Jose have a new online resource.
Sanjosecannabis.com launched last week. Dave Hodges, the founder of the San Jose Cannabis Buyers Cooperative, set up the new website, which touts its mission as "to protect cannabis in San Jose, by turning on the light and exposing what hides in the shadows."
The site has a calendar of cannabis events and give users a way to find out more about community meetings on medical marijuana. There's also a listing of cannabis clubs in the city, a section for activist resources and a blog-style update of the ongoing legal struggle of the canna-business in the South Bay.
The site's launch coincided with the SJCBC's one-year anniversary. The SJCBC was San Jose's first storefront medical cannabis collective.
