Legal expenses fundraiser at Time Out Pub

Free Will Free Maine Frolic

Dec 03, 2012

Rockland — Everyone is invited to enjoy local music and local food Sunday, Dec. 9 from 4 to 10 p.m. at Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. The event is a benefit to raise funds for Will Neils’ legal expenses.

Waldo County’s own sons The 220s will be closing the show with a couple of sets after performances by Rod Sturdy’s new band, the Two Cent Pistols. Entertainment also will include the Barefoot Truth Belly Dancers. Food will be prepared by local chefs and includes local pulled pork BBQ with fixins; and fresh vegan/vegetarian fare, to be served at 5 p.m. There also will be an auction with locally donated items.

All proceeds will go to deferring the $10,000 plus dollars spent by Neils in his legal defense as a targeted Medical Marijuana Caregiver in Knox County. While charged with multiple felonies for the last two years, all now dismissed, Neils worked successfully to change the law and restore patient rights with the Maine legislature’s passage in April 2011 of LD 1296: An Act To Amend the Maine Medical Use of Marijuana Act to Reflect the Will of the People and Protect Patient Privacy. Political literature will be available.

A $10 donation will be requested at the door. For more information, visit
