Howard Marks- a personal account

The first time I met Howard Marks was the summer of 1997, he had come to Portsmouth for the annual Smokey Bears Picnic on Southsea Common.
We had arranged for him to drop in at my house to chat to a reporter from a local magazine before heading on to the picnic.
Howard was smoking some black Nepalese hash.
I asked him if he would be taking any dope to the picnic, “Oh sure” he said in his Welsh accent, “I always have a bit with me, I’m bustable 100% of the time”.



This is the opening paragraph and very good personal account of meeting and working and being involved with cannabis campaigner and former smuggler Howard Marks. It also has the video we produced for Undercurrents about taking direct action to legalise cannabis.

7th of May - The Forking Garden Party! Come and join us
















Come support our gardening project with a wonderful festival

7th of May - The Forking Garden Party!
On the 7th of May we are hosting a large fundraiser for the community gardens at GROUP! 

Unfortunately our beloved but ancient rotavator has finally passed away after chundeling along for over 20 years so now we need a new one!

Hopefully we get to our goal with your help and have a great evening of music food and friends at the same time.

The 7th will be split into two different events.

During the day AGM Swansea Community Gardening Network will be hosting talks and demonstrations from
10am - 4pm.
Although this is free, booking is essential due to limited spaces available. Below there is a link to AGM's web sight for the booking form and more information.

From 4pm till 5am GROUP is taking over with an evening of music, banquet hall and bar tent. The Forking Garden Party!
We will be hosting local musicians, local foods and local beers from Gower Brewery just down the road.

£10.00 entry includes Camping, banquet and entertainment and all funds go towards our gardens! Children under 12 are free. Book now!
