Irvin Rosenfeld, a medical marijuana proponent who has been getting his marijuana from the federal government for 28 years, will be in Billings for two public events.

On Sunday at 5:30 p.m., he will be at the Red Door Lounge, 3875 Grand Ave., to talk about medical marijuana and answer questions from the audience.

He will also be the speaker during a Politics at the Pub event at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Bones Brewing, 1425 Broadwater Ave.

Hiedi Handford, founder of Montana Connect, a magazine for medical marijuana patients and caregivers, said Rosenfeld invites all comers, including opponents of medical marijuana.

According to Fortune magazine, Rosenfeld is one of four people in the country who is supplied with medical marijuana by the federal government. Every 25 days, he goes to a pharmacy and gets a tin of 300 marijuana cigarettes from the National Institute of Drug Abuse, acting with approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Rosenfeld smokes the marijuana to relieve chronic pain and muscle spasms caused by a rare bone disease.

Rosenfeld's appearances are sponsored by Patients Out of Time, which promotes the benefits of medical marijuana.
