Criminals, liars and thieves, exactly what THEY are, but it's always the abuser calling the victim exactly what the abuser is. These beings need to take a good, hard look at themselves in the mirror and look deep within themselves. They have traded common sense and decency for greed and power. See how DESPERATE THEY ARE, so many bills against ONE PARTICULAR GROUP!!!!! WOW! UNBELIEVABLE! The CONTEMPT they have for us is OBVIOUS!! :(

 

The People need to see how we are being vilified and misrepresented, they need to see the REAL AGENDA of these traitorous tyrants. :sword:

23 department, or who establishes or operates a medical marihuana

3 health code, 1978 PA 368, MCL 333.7335 and 333.7336, are

 

 

 

4 repealed.

 

 

 

5 Enacting section 2. This amendatory act does not take effect

 

 

 

6 unless all of the following bills of the 95th Legislature are

 

 

 

7 enacted into law:

 

 

 

8 (a) Senate Bill No. 616.

 

 

 

9

 

 

 

10 (b) Senate Bill No. 617.

 

That is really going to hurt everyone. It almost seems like the tax stamp act from the 30's. Our access will be to limited to low quality high priced meds at best. At worst access could be shut off.

VOTE VOTE VOTE....You want to control your lives! Then vote out those who don't listen to us.

 

I told Bb a few weeks back that one of the reps in my part of the state had only received four, FOUR e-mails expressing dis-satisfaction and concern with the Michigan legislatures attacks on our community and law.

 

No phone calls, faxes, or letters, four e-mails...

 

Tomorrow is the only day in the year that appeals to a lazy man.

You know that just pisses me off! I am a younger guy (31 in a few days), and most of my friends are even younger, a few of them have cards, but almost every one of them has used Cannabis at some point. Out of all the people I know you know how many of them I was able to convince to come to our rally in Lansing in May?...1. That's right, 1, and that was LongHairBri whom I had only just met, and was planning on going long before I met him, and only needed a ride because his car broke down. So there was no convincing there.

 

You know how many of my friends I know that have written their reps'? Zero. (Other than some of the folks I have met here), I am starting to loathe the apathy that I see in my generation.\

 

GET OFF YOUR ASSES PEOPLE. At least do SOMETHING. You don't have to become a mega-activist. Just show up to a rally or 2 and write your reps. Or this law is toast.

There needs to be a online form with a premade letter that people can sign and have it send to all of these reps.. The was one posted here earlier that I filled out but it only sent it to like 2 people......

 

 

I have no idea who all should be receiving this letter. I HATE politics with a passion and can honestly say I am not as involved as I probably should be.

 

 

WHat's the chances of these ammendment getting the super majority vote? I posted this issue in another MMJ forum and was told I was fear mongering, this site was fear mongering, and there was no way that these would pass... I really do not know what to believe.

You forgot the one where nobody is allowed to grow except for the 10 licensed facilities.

That's the one I used and it only sends it to two reps..

 

Yes, you only have two reps. It's only sending the email to the representatives for your area. Those are the two people you get to vote for and they should be listening to you.

NP, and all of them are the really bad ones. I drive a truck and always keep my meds next to me, so no children can steal them. I'm protecting the children you see... Every bill is either redundant or horrible. We have to have all struck down or we'll be battling them none stop and they'll propose a bunch of garbage just to sneak a kinda crappy one in there. BTW I've printed out 100 of those flyers and I'm working on getting a good list on the back with the sponsers of the bills and their email address and also a couple of the local reps so people don't have to look for that info to contact their reps.

Thank you to all who are working on getting this info to as many people as possible. Having the info in front of them will make it a lot easier, having a brief summary of the bills and what they'll do is also very helpful. I haven't read them all, though I read enough to know they're all bad.

 

Several months ago I recall Blueberry (Bb), saying he got rick jones to admit something about the distribution system. They want control of it, Bb suspected it all along and got jones to admit it somehow. Now we're seeing it in print.

 

We see through their agendas, we see through their lies. I'm working on a letter, though I did already contribute one to the e-mail system for this next round of letters, I worked on the last one, too. It's the program that Bb and someone else set up for us, that's the one that goes out to 110 reps. That may be the one someone was asking about. Bb calls it the "Email-O'Matic." Some of us have written letters, which get put into that program, to be used as sample letters, they can also be customized. This helps people focus on the issue and helps those who may have trouble expressing their ideas in writing, in a way that's respectful and explains our side of the issue. Sure we have a lot to be angry about, but that anger can be expressed diplomatically and tactfully. It's a real challenge, but I love to write, so I always contribute letters. This will be ready to use by mid-August, I think. We want them sent before Sept. 7th. It wouldn't hurt to write them now, or call, too. If you don't like their response send them another letter. Most of them are so out of touch, it ain't funny. What we really need to do is try convincing enough of them that these laws will defy the voters' intent, and may even be unconstitutional. It'll hurt a lot of very sick people, who were given the right to use this medicine by 63% of the voters. This law, OUR law, is supposed to PROTECT US, not punish us. Had the law been properly IMPLEMENTED in the first place, these problems wouldn't exist. They're making any real problems seem like they're totally out of control, it's all being blown way out of proportion. It's THEM who want to control it, all they see is dollar signs. They need to know we are very serous about keeping the law as the voters intended, we have to pound them with our side of the issue- they're pounding us with their crap.

 

We are NOT a danger to children or anyone else, we are NOT criminals, we are law abiding citizens, NOT irresponsible, lazy, unorganized potheads. They do NOT see this as medicine, they're lumping us all together, claiming we're using it as an excuse to get high, claiming it's a back door way to get full legalization. The war on drugs, especially Cannabis, has failed. They make money keeping it illegal. Think of all the jobs created because of it. They don't wanna lose it, as if they'd be so poor they'd be unable to make a living. That's bullcrap. They make more than we'll ever see. They're greedy, selfish, insecure bullies and cowards. TRAITORS AND TYRANTS!

Please let's do all we can. Writing, calling, attending a rally, it's all part of it. At least do one thing, please. If we have thousands calling, etc., and thousands at the rally, we'll send a very powerful message that they cannot ignore- WE ARE WELL ORGANIZED AND SERIOUS ABOUT THIS LAW. It's OUR medicine, OUR rights, OUR law, and OUR community. Together we CAN make a difference.

 

Sincerely, Sb

They can't redefine the PHC to amend who can grow Marijuana under the MMMA of 2008. That would have no standing legally. The MMMA allows for caregivers to grow simple as that. SB618 has NO AUTHORITY to amend who can and can not grow under the MMMA of 2008. Did I miss a siffrent bill trying to get rid of caregivers by amending the MMMA? I remember reading about that before I thought....

It's so sad that anyone has to fear anyone, especially IF the govt were run by The People, For The People, etc. It seems it's always an "us vs them: situation. They made it that way, caused most of our problems. They got it all rigged against us, they need an enemy to justify their agendas.To me, it's obvious they're very disturbed, insecure beings. :(

 

Whoever votes for those bills, I'd like to see a list, and whoever votes against them, I'd like a list of them, too. We can thank the ones who opposed them, and write those who voted in favor to tell them they have lost our vote. Not only will they lose our vote, they'll also lose any votes of the others who voted for MM.

Sincerely, Sb
