Are you curious about changes in the law regarding production, cultivation, distribution, testing and sale of cannabis in California?  If you want to understand changes in the state’s cannabis laws from 1996 to the present, what changes will go into effect in 2017, and what community impacts will likely be, you’ll want to attend this free program in the Dublin Library Learning Center, 200 Civic Plaza, Dublin, CA 94568.

The speaker on this timely and controversial topic is Attorney Matthew Kumin.   Matt has been practicing cannabis law for over 2 decades, beginning with the passage of Prop. 215.  In additional to advising his client group, he has taken a major role in advising city, county and state governments regarding cannabis policy (taxation, public health etc.) through his policy and political consulting work under the umbrella of California Cannabis Voice, a non-profit he co-founded.   He has litigated numerous issues in the cannabis space including federal tax laws, local zoning laws and constitutional issues.   Matt has taught at numerous Bay Area law schools and trains lawyers and other professionals in cannabis issues.

Lawyer in the Library will be offered on the fourth Wednesday of the month, on June 28th, 2017, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  (This is a change from our usual practice of offering Lawyer in the Library on the third Wednesday of the month.)  The Dublin Library will start taking sign-ups one week before the lawyer’s appearance on June 21st, 2017.  Sign up at the reference desk or call 925-803-7252.

Free legal assistance is provided by volunteer lawyers from the Alameda County Bar Association. An attorney will consult to define your problem, advise you of your options, get you started with a solution and make a referral when needed. PLEASE NOTE: This free consultation is not intended to, and does not, establish a continuing attorney/client relationship.  The volunteer attorney can only provide brief consultation and referrals (as necessary). The volunteer will not represent you in any matter.

Calling all teens! Did you know that there are weekly book-related contests at the Dublin Library this summer? Stop by the teen area each week (Monday afternoon through the following Monday morning) and fill out an entry form with your answers to the week’s contest. Last week we had book title anagrams up on the board, and this week (June 19th – June 26th in the morning) we have a character matching game. Match the character names to the book cover to which the characters’ belong. We’ll pick on lucky entry from those that guess all the characters correctly.

In addition, we will save all correct entry forms each week to enter into a grand prize drawing. The grand prize winner will be announced the first week of August. These contests are open for teens ages 13-18. These programs are sponsored with the generous support of the Dublin Friends of the Library.
