The strategy moving forward

I received an email from Americans for Safe Access a moment ago. I've been meaning to write this post, but this email got me moving on it: ASA will build the federal framework that will bring safe and legal access to all Americans by 2013. For too long the medical marijuana movement has been forced into a reactionary and defensive position, constantly having to push back against outrageously unjust legislation our movement has been so busy fighting for what we don't want, we lost sight of how to fight for what we need. That ends today. I don't know why, and ASA doesn't...

More thoughts on Iowa Pharmacy Board Hearing

The public hearing on June 1 was not announced. I’m the petitioner, and they didn’t even bother to notify me. I just happened to look at their web site on Friday, May 29 and noticed it by accident. I don’t know why they are holding a public hearing. The judge's order told them to rule on my petition. It’s a legal question, so I’m not sure what public opinion has to do with it. I called and they said it was okay for me to attend the public hearing on my petition, so I’ll be there. Several patients will be there. I...
