Prohibition Still Doesn't Work!

Majority of Law Enforcement Officers Want to Reform Marijuana Laws.

Prohibition Still Doesn't Work!
Prohibition Still Doesn’t Work! Never did and never will. Education NOT incarceration! #EducationNotIncarceration

survey released this week by the publication Law Officer revealed that a majority of law enforcement officers want to see our country’s marijuana laws reformed.

The poll, which questioned over 11,000 law enforcement officers regarding their opinions on drug policy, revealed that just over 64% believed our marijuana laws needed to be relaxed in some form. When asked “Do you believe possession of marijuana for personal use should…” and presented with several options, 35.68% of respondents stated that marijuana be legalized, regulated and taxed, 10.84% chose that it should be be legalized for medical reasons and with a doctor’s prescription only, 14.24% said it should continue to be illegal but only punished via fines (no incarceration), and 3.68% said marijuana should simply be decriminalized. Only 34.7% believed marijuana should continue to be illegal with the criminal penalties that are currently in place.

“This poll reveals that support for marijuana prohibition is eroding even amongst those who are serving on the front lines enforcing it,” stated NORML Communications Director Erik Altieri, “When a majority of the American people and most of those tasked with implementing a law disagree with it in principle, it is time to change that law.”

You can view the full results of this survey here.

“Prohibition cannot be enforced for the simple reason that the majority of the American people do not want it enforced and are resisting its enforcement. That being so, the orderly thing to do under our form of government is to abolish a law that cannot be enforced, a law which the people of the country do not want enforced.” – New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia on alcohol prohibition.

Are we all deluded? America, Politics and the Racist, 40 year war on Drugs(the poor).

Deluded… Delusional… Are we all simply deluded? Were we programmed from birth, by pre-formatted parents? Were our grandparents and their parents beliefs, morals and ideals forged from governmental guidelines and religious rules?

Sounds far-fetched, I know. Just the title screams “conspiracy theory” without making a sound! I think many of us can relate to the thin line between delusion and reality! This is the space that is widening for middle-class Americans. Our country is now the ultra rich and the poor. There is a war on the poor happening in America right now.

Forty years ago, President Nixon started the “War on Drugs”. We know this war has only been effective in destroying the lives of the poor. We know this war has been a racist war on the poor as well, affecting people of Color, disproportionately so from Caucasians.

40 years of the war on drugs and our government is still waging a racist war on the poor. This is fact. Look at the statistics. The statistics are black and white! Click on the image to view full size image. Image courtesy of Google Images.

This war has affected the poor and people of color more than any other group in the U.S. Please see the informative graph below. It simply explains the racism involved in this broken, immoral war that has been going on for 40 years. It is time to end this racism and incarceration. We need education not incarceration for drug abuse and non-violent drug offenders.

Incarceration rates in the United States by race. This accurate graph indicates the racism involved in our broken War on Drugs started by President Nixon 40 years ago. Countless Americans have had their lives ruined over this war.

Recently, a man in a southern state, was sentenced to 13 years in prison, with 5 of those years being hard labor for possession of 2 marijuana cigarettes. Mandatory minimum sentences are killing families in America.

NEW ORLEANS—The Drug Policy Alliance filed an amicus brief today urging the Louisiana Supreme Court to review the egregious prison sentence of Bernard Noble, a 48-year old man who was sentenced to 13.3 years of hard labor in prison without the opportunity for parole for possessing the equivalent of two marijuana cigarettes.”

Americans, it is time to end this horrible, human-rights violation, called the War on Drugs. This war has proved to be a racist war that has actually increased the amount of illicit drugs used and has caused the destruction of millions of families over 40 years. The War on Drugs has not protected people. It has been a huge waste of money, resources and life. Thousands upon thousands of Americans and others in surrounding countries have been killed by cartels, law enforcement and black market drug deals and it is all linked back to the terrible, failed War on Drugs! Let’s also not forget all those police officers killed in the line of duty and the innocent victims of the war on drugs.

It is early in Colorado’s legalization movement, but so far, crime rates have gone down substantially and the state’s tax revenues from legal marijuana are in the millions of dollars. This is a win/win situation so far for Colorado. Take away the demand by decriminalizing, regulating, taxing and educating citizens on marijuana and the benefits and dangers. Anything in excess is bad, whether it be alcohol or allergy medication.

Please add your name to the petition below by clicking on the icon and sign the petition to end the prohibition on Marijuana. It is time to take this first step. 13 years in prison for 1 or 2 grams of a natural plant? This is real, click the link above for the news story. this just happened! The man charged with this will be over 60 years old when he gets out of prison, if he gets out of prison. His family life, his job, his everything is gone because of 2 little cigarettes of marijuana… for his own personal use. He wasn’t doing anything violent or assaulting anyone. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now his life is ruined for the time being. Also, tax-payers will be paying for 13 years of his life in prison for 2 marijuana joints! This is insane. End the police state that we all live in!

Please, if you have empathy for your fellow Americans, help end the suffering from this immoral, human rights travesty called the War on Drugs!

Current Congressional Cannabis News in America.

Eric Holder Would Be ‘Glad To Work With Congress’ To Reschedule Marijuana

ERIC HOLDER

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration would be willing to work with Congress if lawmakers want to take marijuana off the list of what the federal government considers the most dangerous drugs, Attorney General Eric Holder said Friday.

http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/decriminalize-marijuana-16
Please click and sign our petition to decriminalize a medicinal plant, and allow patients safe access to a medicine that has been used for more than 5000 years by humans. People are SUFFERING and Dying every DAY in America because of the failed “War on Drugs”.

“We’d be more than glad to work with Congress if there is a desire to look at and reexamine how the drug is scheduled, as I said there is a great degree of expertise that exists in Congress,” Holder said during a House Appropriations Committee hearing. “It is something that ultimately Congress would have to change, and I think that our administration would be glad to work with Congress if such a proposal were made.”

Several members of Congress have called on the administration to downgrade cannabis on its own without waiting for congressional action. Under the federal Controlled Substances Act, the attorney general has the authority to “remove any drug or other substance from the schedules if he finds that the drug or other substance does not meet the requirements for inclusion in any schedule.” Holder didn’t indicate Friday that he would be willing to do that unilaterally.

Although there haven’t been any documented cases of deaths from overdosing on marijuana, the federal government treats it as a Schedule I drug with a “high potential for abuse,” along with heroin, LSD and Ecstasy.

Re-categorizing marijuana would not legalize the drug under federal law, but it couldmake research into marijuana’s medical benefits much easier and allow marijuana businesses to take tax deductions.

Several Republican lawmakers at the hearing questioned Holder’s decision to allow Colorado and Washington to legalize and regulate marijuana and to take the states’ actions into consideration when prioritizing federal marijuana prosecutions. But Holder said that he was “not sure that you’re going to see a huge difference” between the cases the Justice Department was bringing before and after guidance went out to U.S. attorneys on which cases to prioritize.

“We’re not blazing a new trail,” Holder said of the decision to prosecute only certain cases based on the department’s limited resources, noting that much of marijuana law enforcement happens on the state and local levels.

Any move to reschedule marijuana would probably face resistance from the Drug Enforcement Administration, which Holder oversees. DEA chief Michele Leonhart said this week that the growing acceptance of marijuana only makes her agents “fight harder.”

PTSD background image

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in Children and Adults. Hope with Cannabis Treatment?

PTSD is not just a psychological injury. It is a physical injury as well. Changes in the brain in Adult survivors of child abuse have these changes in their brains. It is a painful disorder that is not physically visible but is debilitating!
PTSD is not just a psychological injury. It is a physical injury as well. Changes in the brain in Adult survivors of child abuse have these changes in their brains. It is a painful disorder that is not physically visible but is debilitating!

Veterans of our military are returning from war in desperate need of PTSD treatment. The problem is, there really is no medication that can be prescribed to truly treat vets and adults suffering from this terrible psychological and physical condition. Typically, a medication and counseling regimen is prescribed in victims that seek help. Effectiveness varies in individuals of course, but many have turned to the effects of cannabis and report this is “the only thing that helps”.

PTSD sufferers also avoid ANY stimulus that may cause flashbacks of the trauma experienced, whether it be war, child abuse, molestation, rape, assault and any other traumatic experience which may have happened.

 Symptoms of PTSD include:

“Reliving” the traumatic event through thoughts, flashbacks, and nightmares (Flashbacks can be triggered by anything that causes a memory of the trauma. For example, a war veteran might experience a flashback after seeing a low-flying helicopter).

Experiencing a rapid heart beat and sweating while “reliving” the traumatic event

Feeling numb

Feeling emotionally detached from other people

Sleep disturbances

Irritability

Avoidance of anything associated with the trauma

Anger

Difficulty concentrating

Amnesia

A strong response when shocked

Extreme vigilance – Always feeling “on guard”

Difficulty working

Difficulty with social situations

Inability to properly care for loved ones

Every day in America, 22 veterans end their lives because living with PTSD is just too much for them to handle. It is not uncommon for the PTSD sufferer to have irritability, sadness, feelings of worthlessness and shame. Many PTSD victims never express or have a very difficult time expressing their emotions and especially, expressing the trauma. Very high percentages of PTSD victims have tried to commit suicide and many are successful. It is a huge public health issue in America.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder...Not all wounds are visible. The worst wounds usually aren't visible!
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder…Not all wounds are visible. The worst wounds usually aren’t visible!

There are many triggers for the individual with PTSD. If the adult was molested or raped as a child, then perhaps, a violent scene in a movie may start the flashbacks. It’s the same for vets returning home from war. They may have flashbacks of the horrors of war. They may have flashbacks of dead bodies, piles of human parts…it really is a nightmare. The flashbacks leave a person fatigued, yet anxiety ridden, stealing any quality of life.

Nightmares are another common symptom of PTSD. These nightmares can be so bad, that the PTSD sufferer tries purposely, not to sleep. The insomnia exacerbates the PTSD and the cycle starts all over.

You can see the physical changes in the PTSD sufferers brain compared to that of a normal human brain in this image.
You can see the physical changes in the PTSD sufferers brain compared to that of a normal human brain in this image.

Studies have actually shown brain changes in the right temporal lobe of the brain in adults abused as children. The changes, are similar to those that would be expected in a person with epilepsy.

Recent research has shown that the human body’s endocanabinoid system is different in people suffering from PTSD. Researchers in Israel, think they may have actually found a medication that works with the human endocannabinoid system. Cannabis! Otherwise known as marijuana.

Cannabis contains THC and CBD. It is a complex plant to explain without getting very technical. The American Government has just allowed studies to be conducted on treating PTSD with cannabis.

Many veterans already treat the condition with cannabis, as it is much safer than the antipsychotic medications such as Seroquel, Abilify, Geodon, Thorazine and many others. Antidepressants can actually increase suicide risk in PTSD sufferers more so than in depressed individuals without PTSD.

Veterans and many other PTSD sufferers are reporting relief from almost all of the symptoms of PTSD and a reduction in obsessive thoughts and suicidal ideation. Science is backing this up in the studies that have been done thus far in other countries by Neurology researchers.

Hopefully, veterans and all PTSD sufferers will be allowed safe, medical access to a medication… a natural medication that does not elevate liver enzymes, cause life threatening syndromes such as Serotonin Syndrome and even death.

Victims of PTSD are not “bipolar”. They have ups and downs, sometimes several in an hour. PTSD victims are not crazy. They need love and support. Trust and empathy. PTSD affects so many children and adults in America. It’s time to address this epidemic.

For more technical research, please visit this link. Click Here.

Please click the “sign the petition” below to support the veterans and all who suffer from this terrible condition. The majority of PTSD sufferers are children that were abused at a young age during the development of their young brains. The symptoms slowly start to manifest until it becomes unbearable for the PTSD victim at times. Unfortunately, the suicide numbers are very high in PTSD victims. Please sign the petition and help those without a voice.

Real American’s Quotes From Our Petition for the Compassionate Use of Cannabis/Decriminalization for AMERICANs!

These are real quotes that I have copied and pasted. I have left the people’s names off for anonymity.

We all know the hypocrisy of the government allowing cigarettes and alcohol to be taxed and regulated. Both of which have NO medical applications, yet Cannabis is kept a schedule 1 drug, along with Heroin and PCP. Cocaine is considered a schedule 2 drug. Xanax and Lortab are schedule 3 drugs. Schedule 1 drugs are considered to have NO medical benefit. 20 states have enacted medical marijuana laws and many more are working on medical marijuana laws right now…except KANSAS!

Politicians argue that Cannabis is “so much stronger now”. Well, what about 190 proof Everclear…which is an alcoholic drink that will kill you if you drink too much. It is impossible to overdose on Cannabis, unless you can smoke 1500 pounds of it in 30 minutes. If you smoke 1500 pounds of anything in 15 minutes, your probably not going to fare to well!

Here we go with the quotes from real people across America!

1. Erie, Pennsylvania: “marijuana has so many positive uses yet the government will not legalize it does that make any sense at all”

2. Glendale, CA: “Free the people!”

3. Helper, Utah: “Make it medically available..”

4. St. Joseph, MO: “As a nurse I have seen cancer patients writhing in agony, waiting for their next pain shot. Marijuana not only can relieve pain and mental anguish, but also stimulates the appetite to reverse the wasting and emaciation so common in terminally ill patients. Yet these people cannot legally obtain or use marijuana in most states to alleviate pain or improve their quality of life in the time they have left.”

5. Phoenix, AZ: “I have PTSD and it sucks, I think anyone with PTSD should be able to be prescribed cannabis, it’s helped me with my PTSD, I have PTSD from rapes and abuse in the past. I approve c:”

6. Edinburgh, Maine: “Do the right thing. By the way NO you’re not doing it at this time.”

7. Conway, SC: “We need to stop living in the dark ages and move forward.These people deserve the right to have medicine that helps them with out the serious side effects of. the drugs that’s out there now.”

8. Cambridge City, IN: “I strongly agree.”

9. Enterprise, KS: “It will not only help the people in the state, it will help our state! Please hear us!”

10. Salina, KS: “Please Please Please listen to the people! Majority of the people in Kansas are in favor of changing marijuana laws and we need your help!”

11. Glendale, CA: “I defer all questions to Dr. Sanjay Gupta.”

12. Sm, KS: “Put CHILD MOLESTERS and MURDERERS in PRISON for LIFE with NO chance of PAROLE. Let NON-violent “offenders” free or pay a nominal fee.”

13. Newton, KS: “It’s time for a more intelligent and compassionate approach to marijuana sales and use, especially for medical purposes.”

14. Wichita, KS: “I have a loved one with Crohn’s disease, and know that individual – an ethical, professional, and dedicated public servant – uses cannabis for the pain and nausea. I think we should give people access to medically necessary drugs to improve their functioning and decrease pain!!”

15. Wichita, KS: “Helps eye pressure for glocauma, cures cancer when injested, helps fibromyalgia. Get kansas into the 21 century.”

16. Wichita, KS: “Medical use should be permitted and regulated.”

17. Olathe, KS: “I have always been in agreement that marijuana should be legalized for medicinal uses as I was/am an AIDS patient. But the HIV is under control and have just now been diagnosed with cancer and will begin chemo radiation this week. I expect marijuana to be part of my refi mine to control nausea but more importantly, assisting with my appetite and make me want to eat.”

18. Auburn, KS: “I agree whole-hearted that this should be reevaluated and ultimately legalized. It is also a mood stabilizer that many people prefer to using prescription drugs. Yet another use…hmmm. :-)”

19. Sedan, KS: “We have spent billions of dollars on the war against drugs, learning nothing from our experience with the crime caused by prohibition in the ’20s. Lets help the people who can be relieved by the medical use of marijuana.”

20. Topeka, KS: “It’s time to walk back this ineffective, wasteful body of legislation and end the war on marijuana, particularly for medical needs.”

21. Overland Park, KS: “I completely agree. Our country should invest in cannabis – rather than villify and incarcerate those involved with its industry”

22. Wichita, KS: “With over 100 uses of the marijuana plant as of the 1930s, what could be created now with current knowledge and technology surely would be amazing and also very beneficial towards our needed economic growth. However, it takes open minds and open hearts to step out of fears and persecutions of differing others, and into loving wisdom for the advancement of ourselves into a more civilized and evolved culture. Hopefully Kansans are up to this opportunity for social and economic progress.”

23. Wichita, KS: “It’s been a long time comin and needs to be done now pmk”

24. Lawrence, KS: “This is the truth, and millions of people are recognizing it now. Be on the right side of history for once. Stop ruining lives and wasting money on prisons, and start helping lives to be improved while collecting tax revenues. It just makes sense!”

25. Inman, KS: “Time to stop the insanity! The medicinal uses of marijuana have been studied and it has been proven effective on many fronts including reducing intraoccular pressure in glaucoma patients which was not mentioned here. It’s said Queen Victoria used to smoke it to relieve menstrual cramps!”

26. Hutchinson, KS: “the government should listen to the American people. both science & medical evidence is to overwhelming and we need to act now. I also work in the healthcare field and totally agree.”

27. Wichita, KS: “LEGALIZE MARIJANA IN KANSAS”

28. Topeka, KS: “I have no problem with the use of marijuana to treat illness.”

29. Oswego, KS:  “I think the petition should be supported by MoveOn. Marijuana is proving to be a kind of wonder drug. It should, at the very least, be available for medical use. Even better, make it available through legal means so it can be a legitimate revenue stream.”

30: Topeka, KS: “If it can benefit medical conditions I say go for legalization. Save the war for drugs with much more harmful effects.”

31. Stillwater, OK: “I have just been diagnosed with Crohn’s. Please pass this bill for all of those who suffer.”

32. Salina, KS: “It’s time for change. What can be argued about using a plant that God has given us over man made pharmaceuticals!”

33. Westfall, KS: “I strongly agree with the act of legalization of medical & recreational use of marijuana.”

34. Longmont, CO: “Good idea ! It IS 2014 .”

35. Smolan, KS: “Marijuana, either medical or recreational, should be legalized and mandated in a similar way to alcohol. More people die from alcohol than marijuana and it makes no sense why it is illegal!”

36. Salina, KS: “End the racist drug war on the poor. President Nixon started this war and it has victimized millions of non-violent cannabis users ever since. It has ruined lives and families. End it!”

I’m Fine.

Depression leaves you uncomfortable in your own skin
I’m Fine. I take the right pills the doctor prescribed. I am fine. Inside, I am not, but you will never know.

We all get asked “are you okay?” by loved ones or friends, and we give stock answers like “I’m fine” and “Don’t worry about me, I’m good.” Are these answers truthful? For some people they are. Other people…not so much. It’s just a self-defense mechanism that has been learned from a lack of an emotionally supportive childhood.

Adults that were abused as children often have feelings of worthlessness, low self-esteem and long periods of depression. Often these fellow human-beings are prescribed medications that become a necessity, because quitting them leaves you with terrible withdrawal symptoms, which are worse than being on the medication. These “medicines” leave you apathetic with an empty feeling deep inside of you, that seems as though it will never be filled with anything, but sadness, rage, hopelessness and a poor image of self.

Many people abused as children, suffer many medical conditions during adulthood. Many contemplate and even plan suicide, often, if not a good part of the day. Abused Adult Children (AAC) are NOT more likely to abuse their own children, that is just a cruel theory invented by some dipshit with a fancy degree hanging on his wall.

The truth you ask? Well, it is individual and different for everyone. Some people NEVER recover from the abuse. I know that AACs are more likely to have pain, especially in the gastrointestinal and pelvic areas. I know these individuals are prone to isolation and a total lack of self-esteem. Many times these individuals feel it is always their fault, no matter the situation. These adults, abused as children, always make apologies for their actions. Many have issues with intimacy and even sexual dysfunction over the abuse.

Men, especially, don’t usually tell about their abuse as a child, especially if it was sexual abuse. Men in the American culture always have been taught to be stoic…seldom do they speak of past abuse or they simply have blacked it out. Men feel it is something that shouldn’t be spoken of, or any emotion given to it… after all, that might be considered weakness, and in America, men shouldn’t be weak, right?

PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is very common in this classification of person. PTSD results in anxiety, panic attacks and long bouts of depression. Many give up trying to speak of it because it would indicate weakness in their eyes. PTSD is a sad condition. The hyper-startle response or lack of any startle response. PTSD sufferers may have flashbacks, obsessive thoughts and violent nightmares. These nightmares may include pieces of the abuse that occurred as a child. 22 veterans commit suicide EVERY day in America. Think about it, that’s almost 1 veteran, every hour, every day, every year!

If you feel you have depression, please seek medical help. If you feel you suffer from PTSD from past traumatic experiences, please seek help.

If you want to take the depression quiz, please click HERE.

There is a natural medication that has been shown to effectively treat PTSD, Depression and Anxiety. If you want more information on this, click HERE.

I am not selling anything or giving medical advice. I am a registered nurse and a veteran of Desert Storm, having served 8 years and honorably discharged. I know of a natural medicine that is so more effective at treating PTSD, anxiety and depression but the federal government and many states make it a crime to pursue a life of happiness.

Marijuana Ballot Initiatives Get Out the Vote! Voters Want Medical Marijuana overwhelmingly across the country!

Medical Marijuana and Crohn's Disease...Please watch the video. It will change your mind on medical cannabis!
Medical Marijuana treats Crohn’s Disease, Diabetes, MS, Glaucoma, Cancer and so much more. Sign the petition below and vote yes to freedom!

The latest round of Battleground polls by George Washington Rick ScottUniversity found respondents (nationally) would be 40% “much more likely” to visit the voting booth if marijuana’s legalization status was on the ballot. Thirty percent of respondents would be “somewhat” more likely as well. This brings the numbers up to a total of about 70% of voters who would be more likely to vote this fall if marijuana was in question.

Considering midterm elections have historically had low voter turnout, politicians are keeping a watchful eye on those states that have marijuana policy initiatives in the upcoming election. The results are promising for Democrats, because they tend to have a rougher time than Republicans in getting voters out in non-presidential election years.

The study goes on to show that 76 percent of liberals said they would be more likely to vote if marijuana was on the ballot, compared to a 64 percent for conservatives and 61 percent for moderates.

For instance, in Florida, Republican Governor Rick Scott’s reelection campaign says the “spillover effect” from high voter turnout because of the medical marijuana ballot question threatens to weigh the scales against him. In fact, the state’s Republicans feel so threatened that they have filed a legal challenge to keep the referendum off the ballot.

“It’s an issue that the Democrats can use to pump up the youth vote,” said Alex Patton, a Republican political consultant and pollster based in Gainesville, Florida. “The politics of it are dangerous for the GOP.”

Moving for medical marijuana help

One of many families moving due to Kansas Governments lack of concern for the chronically and terminally ill, and most importantly, our future, the children!

Medical marijuana option leads KC family to move to Colorado.

Families from 43 states have moved to Colorado to seek medical cannabis treatment for their loved ones… My family will be making the move soon as well for our 7-year-old daughter with Severe Crohn’s Disease.

Sydni Yunek suffers from rare form of epilepsy

Colorado marijuana laws force mother to move daughter from KC

DENVER —A young girl from the Kansas City area has moved to Colorado to benefit from the state’s new marijuana laws.

Colorado’s recent changes to its marijuana laws have highlighted a unique form of healing.

Hundreds of kids with epileptic seizures like Sydni Yunek have moved with their families to Colorado to take advantage of a special cannabis oil.

“To stay at task and to figure out how to get these things into the tongs, just that right there would send her into a cluster of seizures,” said Holli Brown, Sydni’s mother.

She said for the last five and a half years, her daughter has been unable to focus on anything for more than five minutes. Sydni has a rare form of epilepsy called Doose syndrome and has undergone nearly a dozen failed treatments.

“No neurologist anywhere we’ve been had an answer how to fix her,” Brown said.

“She required total assistance for pretty much everything.  She wasn’t participating in any of her self care,” said occupational therapist Maureen Gaitor.

Since Brown and Sydni moved to Colorado Springs from Kansas City last year, days that had been restricted to the couch are now replaced by a much stronger mother-daughter bond.

“I don’t know if the people in Kansas City will appreciate this as the ones who have watched her for the last five years,” Brown said.

More than 100 children like Sydni have moved to Colorado from 43 states after hearing about a new strain of cannabis oil called Charlotte’s Web.  It’s grown in the mountains by a nonprofit called Realm of Caring – not to get children high, but in part to control their seizures.

Get on a waiting list

Sydni’s not entirely away from difficulty.  She had multiple seizures just as KMBC 9 came to her apartment to chronicle her story. Brown said it was one of the toughest days in the past few months since Sydni has been on the oil.

“It’s not on camera tonight because she’s having a rough day, but I’ve seen incredible things,” she said.

But an hour after a dose of cannabis, Sydni was able to go through a previously scheduled occupational therapy session with Gaitor.

“She would not have had a comeback like this prior to being on the oil,” Brown said.

Sydni’s seizures that night were reduced from every few minutes to zero.

“Would I just let her seize for the rest of her life over this old way of thinking,” Brown said. “Would I just say, ‘Nope. It’s not possible that this is helpful. Sorry, Sydni.”

“All of the other medications weren’t working.  She was as medicated as she could be and all she could do was sit on the couch,” said Gaitor.

The National Epilepsy Foundation has said there is currently insufficient scientific data in humans to back up the claims of relief, but it supports research on cannabis and other marijuana options.

Brown said it’s unfair the laws of Missouri and Kansas forced children like Sydni to move to Colorado.

My very own daughter Laney, is on the waiting list at the very same clinic to see physicians that specialize in this amazing therapy! There are people from all over the world on this waiting list. There is not enough medicine to go around! Because it works. Recreational users do not use this strain because it does not get them “high”.

Conservatives Join the Fight for Cannabis Business Rights in America!

Conservative Fights For Marijuana Business Rights

Marijuana has always been big business, and with legalization taking effect across America, it’s hard to deny the potential for a financial boom in the economy. This new reality has conservatives like Michael Correia jumping in, ready to be the face and driving force behind equality for the emerging marijuana business sector.

Lobbyist for Cannabis Business

Although, Correia spent the last couple of years as a GOP staffer and lobbyist for the American Legislative Exchange Council, working on issues such as gun restriction, he is now refocusing his agenda as an advocate for the National Cannabis Industry Association—a national trade association that seeks equal treatment for marijuana business under federal law.

 Marijuana Commerce

You are not likely to find Correia smoking marijuana, himself, but he does have this to say about representing marijuana commerce: “These are legitimate businesses, producing revenue, creating jobs. I want to be the face of it. I want to be what congress sees.”

He’s eager to do his part to assure that the economic potential of the industry does not continue to be oppressed by unfair federal regulation on tax, charitable donations, and revenue processing.

Correia’s Motivation

Correia believes that this issue is the perfect way to fight for the principles he’s always stood for—limited government, equality, and freedom; and he’s not alone. His support of the cause has lead to collaboration from Grover Norquist (anti-tax activist and founder of Americans for Tax Reform). Together they’re lobbing for the right of marijuana businesses to deduct expenses from their taxes.

A New Approach

Instead of focusing on the war on drugs in general (a trend Correia has noticed among traditional supporters), he believes that focus on the concrete legal issues and federal equality violations will make the difference in acquiring support for the movement, and ultimately creating change.

The Stuff They Won't Include in Any Tourist Guide: The Real England

The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
