Oaksterdam's attention after Pro-
posal 1 - which legalized medici-
nal marijuana in-the state - passed
last November. OU chose to hold its
classes in Ann Arbor due to the city's
lax marijuana laws, Clare said.
"In reading Michigan's law, we
recognized that for the first time in
a long time there was another state
that had legislation that was similar
to our own," he said.
Clare added that Oaksterdam was
interested in helping Michigan im-
plement the proposal.
"(We realized) there's other peo-
ple out there that have an opportu-
nity to really make or break this new
law, and we have a chance to get out
there and teach them how to do it

was motivated to attend the seminar
because she and her husband have
health issues that qualify them to
grow medicinal marijuana.
"I need to learn to grow the best,
of course, butalso go ahead and make
a living doing it," Hess said. "This is
something I firmly believe in and
something that I think the nation is
eventually going to be gravitating to,
so I'd like to do my part."

in favor of Google Book Search, but
voiced her concern about authors'
rights to their works.
"I think it's a great idea, but
the only issue there is getting au-

their work should be in a library, or
whether or not we should be paying
to see that work," Baker said. "But
I think that (the University) is all
about sharing education and this is
the best way to do it!'
Though it will be an ongoing pro-

lishing of new books, Courant said
students will reap the benefits of the
