  1. Brighton Area Compassion Club

    Promoting Positive Patient Outcomes Through Cannabis Therapy

    A message to all members of Brighton Area Compassion Club

     

    Due to recently revealed facts about the promoters of the Expo being held this weekend in Novi, the BACC, after much discussion and, finally, coming to an agreement among the board members of the group, we will not be attending the event. It has come to light that this is likely not to benefit the community at all, in fact, the major money man for the promoters has stated that "we don't need the cannabis community leadership" nor do they want our input, and so, we shall see how that works for them. If any of you have further concerns, I am willing to discuss this with you. I suggest that no one take any medicine with them to Novi, as Oakland and Novi police will be there "in force", both uniformed and plain clothes officers. There will be profileing done, so the odds are that many will be pulled over as they leave the event. If you get on the "medicine" bus and travel to their "safe" smoke spot there could be a surprise waiting for you. I apologize to the many of you who were looking forward to this event, but I must make these statements and follow my heart. I feel it is important that we protect you from those who don't care if they do you harm, and admit that we were completely taken in by this group running the event. Better we find out their intent later than never at all. We have tried very hard to keep the name of the BACC clean and unsullied and will continue to do so in the future...

     

     

     

    I will be there, but the BACC will not have a booth, nor will I be giving classes as scheduled. When I discovered that instead of allowing folks to learn from me gratis, and charging a fee for my class, I had to withdraw.

     

     

     

    Look for me at the MINORML booth, or at the ASA booth, where I will attempt to put some legitamacy to our community and counter what will likely be "bad press".

     

     

     

    Any questions should be directed to me, SORRY DIDN'T REALIZE YOUR PHONE NUMBER WAS IN HERE!

  2. It's been 2 months since I visited the MMMCN clinic in Detroit, the doctor there gave me his recommendation and they were supposed to file my application with the state.

     

    I havn't received anything from the state about my application being accepted or denied, and I havn't received anything from the clinic in Detroit either.

     

    Why is it everyone here had proof of cashed check or their check returned to them within 1 month of the filing date, but its been 2 months for me and I havn't received anything at all?

     

    If this place in Detroit stole my money and never filed my application or got my denied application and kept the returned check what can I do about it? I've called them twice since I went there 2 months ago and both times they've given me the same story but there's no way the state is this slow with cashing or returning the checks, everyone here says 20 days...it even says 20 days on MMMCN's paperwork.

     

    I would go there and demand copy of proof that they mailed your paperwork and payment out. I would be in their lobby if they have one raising hell.

    While a legal battle brews about a medical marijuana compassion center in St. Clair County, a Sanilac County center has been embraced by its local municipality.

     

    Jim Amsdill, who opened the Blue Water Compassion Centers in Kimball and Worth townships last year with his wife, said he can't keep up with demand.

     

    “We'll never be able to keep up,” he said.

     

    The couple also opened a center in Richville in Tuscola County last month, and Amsdill said he plans to open a new center somewhere in the state every four months.

     

    The Kimball Township location has been peppered with protests from the local government since it opened in March, most recently for allegedly violating a zoning ordinance that was amended by the board to include medical marijuana compassion centers.

     

    “Kimball missed the boat,” Amsdill said. “I had big plans for Kimball ... plans to make it ‘pot central' for Michigan. ... Kimball is on my last nerve.”

     

    The municipality is looking to close down the location, he said, but he's not giving up the fight. Amsdill said he has given the recent ticket to a lawyer and plans to file a lawsuit against the township.

     

    It's a different story in Worth Township, however, Amsdill said. Much of the community — including the township's supervisor — is supportive of the center at 6672 Lakeshore Road in Lexington Heights.

     

    Bryon McClain, owner of Buck Wild Nation just down the road from the compassion center, said he has no concerns about it.

     

    “I didn't really give it much thought, really,” he said of when the center opened. “It's just right down the road from us. It's legal. I think they're within their rights.”

     

    McClain said he also liked the center's community involvement. The center has hosted a fundraiser for the children of slaying victim Jennifer Gonzalez, hosted food giveaways and is organizing an ice festival in February.

     

    “I think it's great. ... I think they're good people and they're doing a good job,” he said.

     

    Amsdill said they're working to bring the community together to support the center. He said similar events are held at their other locations, including the one in Kimball Township.

     

    Elizabeth Galbraith, owner of Bunny's Frozen Custard in Worth Township, said she has had family members go through cancer. She said that, because medical marijuana is said to be beneficial for cancer patients, she supports the center.

     

    “As far as I'm concerned, it's a harmless drug as far as using it for medical things,” Galbraith said.

     

    Philip Essenmacher, Worth Township supervisor, said some residents initially had concerns.

     

    “(But) they've been open since the summer ... and haven't had any citations or any issues whatsoever,” he said.

     

    Essenmacher said he has toured the facility and the Amsdills have addressed any concerns put on the table by the township or law-enforcement agencies.

     

    Amsdil said he staffs 24-hour-a-day security on the premises.

     

    Essenmacher said the center is an asset to the community, through its efforts in community events as well as bringing jobs to the area.

     

    Amsdill said he has more than 20 employees combined at the three centers.

     

    Despite the support from the Worth Township community, there is still a sector of the population that fears the center, Amsdill said.

     

    “The stigma is this is still a drug — and it's not,” he said.

  4. I never said I was against paying, I just said I didn't have a lot of money because I've been out of work. I usually see the average prices anywhere from $10-$25 for well rooted clones. In the meantime a couple of people gave me a couple of free clones and I gave them some beans that I had. Even without the exchange it was cool just to meet some of the people from here and shoot the breeze a bit.

  5. Just so people know too I have been out of work for 2 years and haven't been able to find unemployment so having a lot of extra money to go out and buy clones is not an option. Luckily I have met some really good people on here, one who gave me some beans for free, and then a couple have given me clones for free since I lost my first clones due to a power outage, both of the people who gave me the clones didn't ask for anything in return but I still offered them some of the beans if they wanted them. Like Jipo says it's Karma and what goes around comes around.
