  1. Medical Marijuana Week

    The medical cannabis community is under attack, and we must be heard!

    More than 100 DEA raids, dozens of federal prosecutions, manipulation of the tax code, and threats to landlords and elected officials — the aggressive, anti-medical cannabis efforts of Obama?s Justice Department must stop!

    Join Americans for Safe Access Chapters and Affiliates across the country in celebrating Medical Marijuana Week by standing up for our right to safe access. Take time each day to participate in the week of action outlined below.

    During Medical Marijuana Week (Feb. 13-17), here are some other ways you can get involved and make a difference:

    1. Monday, February 13: Call the White House at 202-456-1111 and tell Pres. Obama to keep his promise to not use Justice Department resources to undermine state laws, stop putting politics before science, and act immediately to reclassify cannabis as medicine.

    2. Tuesday, February 14: Contact Congress, 202-224-3121, and urge your representative to sponsor legislation to reclassify cannabis, end federal interference in state programs, and provide licensed patients and provides a defense in court.

    3. Wednesday, February 15: Ask your Governor to sign the DEA Rescheduling Petition. Find your Governor’s contact information by clicking here.

    4. Thursday, February 16 @ Noon: Make your voice heard at a rally near you! Click here for a full list of rallies.

    5. Friday, February 17: Join the movement and help fund the fight for safe access. Find out how by clicking here.

  2. On Friday everybody needs to be at the LA FED Bldg at 4:20. The entire complex needs to be surrounded. This would essentially keeping it shut down at quiting time. It will take quite a while to open up the exits and streets.

    Making phone calls is nice, you can still smoke out while doing it, after that some leg work would go a long way in the LA area. The Feds are on you folks hard core to make an example of you to America. Please from the rest of America, Push back. You are not government servants, they are public servants, sometimes the help needs reminding who pays the bills.

    Never Admit Guilt
    Never Agree to a ANY Search
    Always Demand Your Right to a Jury Trail
    Plea Bargains only Make it Simple to Ruin You

  3. Y’all get ready. Even though America is at the highest support for cannabis, the surge of recent use, the highest since late 1970s, will end. That’s right, with drug testing going to largely expanded, new technology and laws that escape the Constitutional privacy requirements, and the DEA expanding the pharmaceutical reach of “medical cannabis” while dismantling the States’ legislation-based legalization. But that doesn’t mean marijuana won’t be legal one day!!! 30 years folks. Give it *at least* 30 years until there’s at least ONE place in America to legally purchase cannabis. Not some half-ass “state-based” legalization, but federally authorized. I sound crazy, but not any crazier than our marijuana laws.

  4. Pot is like sex: there’s a time and a place. It’s not good all the time, and it can be used, abused, and safely done. There’s all different kinds of flavors, moves, methods, and people that do it.

  5. In the future, there will be “cannabis patches”, not unlike nicotine patches, with pharmaceutical grade levels of cannabis chemicals, and it will alleviate most — if not all — withdrawal symptoms. The words “marijuana withdrawal” will disappear from our vocabulary.

  6. *Correction: the “cannabis patches” *may* contain cannabis chemicals, such as THC or CBD/CBN, but they may also, or alternatively, include chemicals called “FAAH inhibitors” which block the breakdown of anandamide; much in the way SSRIs (anti-depressants) block the breakdown of “serotonin”. FAAH inhibitors would probably be synthetic so it could have problems not unlike SSRIs do.

  7. Get ready. To be let down like u cant believe. The Government knows that pot heads dont vote. So they know it will never be vote in. But They know that any pro info on cannabis is bad for them. So with the states that have it up for voting will be the ones they will hit the hardest

  8. Douglas… yeah we vote. I don’t know where you live or how old you are but us old pot heads vote along with many young smokers that are sick of this shit. Not much we can do federally but locally is where to start and don’t vote for people that call you a criminal. It’s easy, it’s fun.

  9. MOLDY… I wish that was true. But if it was true than there would be big change. I work at a local smoke shop in Town here for a few year. One week the owner was gone so I ask shoppers Who are u going to vote for in the Governor race out of 30 person I ask only one said they vote every one else said they dont bother are dont care and several seems proud they never register to vote. When ask well if it went be for the voters would then register to vote. They are most 24 said they still would not go vote.

  10. Obama announced his FY2013 budget today, and what I want to know is did he do anything for cannabis. I mean, why should the feds spend money on something the states are willing to spend the money to deal with, namely cannabis? Did he somehow prevent any federal funds from being spent on cannabis prohibition enforcement?

    Delaware caved today, caved under the pressure of the feds coming in and arresting state and other government workers involved in medical marijuana in the state.

    Apparently, the economy isn’t doing as badly as it ought to be doing in order for a total hold on cannabis enforcement in states who want to spend their own money to deal with cannabis, aka medical marijuana states.

    Come on!!!

    Keep running the economy into the ground until cannabis is legalized!!!!!

  11. Im a 33 head old smoker (not cigarettes though cause those things are actually bad for you) and I have never been to vote. I live in the suburbs around Chicago and me not voting has nothing to do with being lazy. It’s because in my state since I’ve been 18 nobody I could vote for supported this issue one bit. I’ve been registered since 18 so I’m hoping there will be something to vote for in my area in November. If not I guess I don’t vote again
