Supporting growers, suppliers, distributors and patients of Medical Marijuana as we work within the political system to see the day when Medical Marijuana is legalized nationally here in America. Legalization is a matter of free choice, and it is the right thing to do.
I got high for the first time in my life back in 1969...40 years later, and we are still fighting the same fight. When is the Federal Government going to accept that prohbition does not, and cannot work...the time for Cannabis Reform is now, the time for legalized Medical Cannabis is now. Please contact your elected officials in Washington, DC asking them to support the legalization of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis).
Medical Marijuana Society-Why I Launched This Site, and the Society.
I am an old Hippy (NOT THAT OLD), and for those who will ask, I have inhaled, as have our last three Presidents. I've supported, in principal, the legalization of Marijuana since the 70's when William F. Buckley got a long haired rebellious teenager to give the matter some thought.
Prohibition has not, and will not work. Contrary to the ascertions of some people, Marijuana is no more a Gateway Drug than a Chocolate Cupcake is a Gateway Food to obesity, and it is wrong for our government to legislate individual morality and choice. Take a look back through history, watch the original Reeder Madness (propaganda piece), and you come to one startling realization...the governments War on Drugs did not work back in 1937, and is not working today. Even more startling...patients in need of the proven Medical Benefits of Medical Marijuana are being denied their treatment of choice, a treatment that in many cases is the only real chance they have to alleviate their pain.
I decided to launch this site, create a Medical Marijuana Society based on current events (White House Townhall) and personal life experiences that seem to be calling me to weigh in to this very important issue, perhaps provide a vehicile and organization to move forward the Political Agenda of Legalizing Medical Marijuana.
I was touched by Montel Williams plea to legalize Medical Marijuana when he was on the Larry King show...perhaps his message touched me on a deeper level because of my own wife's battle with breast cancer. Perhaps the pain she is often in because of her Fibromyalgia and Endometriosis has me wondering, thinking that proverbial what if? Could, would Medical Marijuana help her, take away some of the constant pain she's in? Should she be allowed the opportunity to find out without fearing loss of her job, or worse being labeled a criminal for trying an alternative medical treatment?
We are seeking volunteers in all 50 states to write on Medical Marijuana issues, report news from your states. Volunteer writers will:

Using simple downhome networking to Legalize Medical Marijuana.
Three of my friends stopped by today, loved the site, but each had the same quetion. Why? Good question. There are a lot of great organizations out there (NORML), and they bring to this fight tools, staff and funding that are enviable. They have a professionally designed web site, maybe even their own inhouse Web Master or Web Mistress as the case might be.
I'm more the Forrest Gump of the Medical Marijuana Legalizatin battle, am approaching this organization, this site, and what lays ahead very simply. The key to the network is being viral, linking up to drive our/your message. That's my plan, but on a very primative Grassroots level...HEY, I'm a grassroots guy, it is what I know. Think of this as the Internet=Blogosphere version of a bunch of neighbors getting together with some Poster Board and magic markers to protest in front of City Hall.
I have this small web site. Underlaying this web site I have 50 blogs ready to launch (one for each state) as I find bloggers to report and write about Medical Marijuana and Legalization in 50 Medical Marijuana Lifestyle Blogs, one for each state.
Imagine as we find state writers looking for City and Town Bloggers to report on an even more local level. Now, imagine us all linked up, registered with Technorati and linking to stories in each others blogs that our own readers might like. We become that grassroots brushfire...take it a step forward. A fast breaking LOCAL STORY that we need to get out BIG, and in a SHORT TIME...Hello, how much more viral can you get than having and ARMY of Medical Marijuana Blogs all linked and waiting for marching orders. Fifty states, say ten local bloggers in each state...WOW! That is 550 Medical Marijuana Bloggers all linked into the same system, that is going to drive some TRAFFIC. A values campaign created by building value into a system one dedicated blogger at a time as we all link up for a worthwhile and common cause.
Sure this model can be tweeked and improved upon...IE, what if each of us adds a TWEETER ACCOUNT to our arsenal. In short, I see this effort as the conduit that will plug those Great National Groups in with the local Grassroots in a much more personal way, in a way that will give the grassroots our own sense of autonomy that we want and need, while at the same time having a means by which to mobilize that Grassroots quickly when needed to drive the National message or Political Agenda.
So, if you have read this far and are still with me, maybe you are meant to be one of those grassroots Bloggers that will decide to tune in and turn on by Volunteering as a State Level Medical Mariajuana Blogger, or maybe you are one of those that wants to write more locally...perhaps as local as your own house, and your own life as a patient who benefits from the use of Medical Marijuana.
Every Journey starts with that first step...care to take this trip with us?
