Rep. Christopher Hurst held a hearing today in Olympia on Medical Cannabis and I-502. He called it the “Reconciliation”. In other words, they are closing it down. For those out there claiming we are being fear mongers, go listen for yourself what the Prohibition Industrial Complex has in mind. We fast forwarded it for you all, but the whole thing is worth listening to.
Rep. Hurst shows that he is still all about protecting police jobs and the prison industrial complex over rational policies on cannabis. His background includes Police Chief of Black Diamond (a town that wants to declare a moratorium on medical collectives) and drug task force teams that all rely on Federal grants that target cannabis.
I-502 was a Trojan Horse, designed to take out medical cannabis. Even the bankers in an earlier part at this hearing said that it was policy driven, not actually intended to work.
So now all the medical patients are direct enemy #1. Well, 99% of us, anyways.
And they call us paranoid? Why are they so afraid of a bunch of sick people?
Notice how there was a complete lack of anyone from the Medical Cannabis Community there to speak out against the lies being tossed around.
Notice how not a single one of them laid any blame on the politicians who have kept Medical Cannabis in this perpetual state of being unregulated and unlicensed?
You see, it’s all the sick people’s fault. They are all fakers, right? So what does it matter. Especially the ones with pain. The solution? Lock ‘em up! Useless eaters!
How can people even to begin to feel good about themselves for stripping away the dignity, humanity and basic rights of another individual that is causing them no harm?
Just because you are paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t coming after you. In fact, the drug war has now become even bigger than the War on Terror…

Seriously… anti-aging, anti-oxidant and rebuilding brain cells.
Yes. You read that right. One hand of government lies and arrests you for medical purposes while the other hand patents the medical purposes.
