ST. GEORGE — To usher in the first luncheon of the year for the Washington County Republican Women, guest speaker Evan Vickers, a state senator representing Southern Utah, will discuss the recently passed Utah Medical Cannabis Act.
The luncheon is open to the public and will be held Thursday beginning at 11:30 a.m. in St. George at the Best Western Abbey Inn, 1129 S. Bluff Street. RSVP is required and can be completed online.
Washington County Republican Women President Lesa Sandberg said the theme for the luncheon is “Weed the People — answering your questions about medical marijuana legislation.”
The Utah Medical Cannabis Act, which replaced the medical marijuana law approved by voters in November, was recently passed by the Utah Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Gary Herbert. Vickers was one of the leading sponsors of this compromise bill and will answer questions about the act.
The Washington County Republican Women have been active in local politics for over 50 years seeking to educate women about current issues, the political process and Republican principles. More information about meetings and membership can be found at the Washington County Republican Women website.
