+ProPlayer420 Posted August 8, 2011 Report Share Posted August 8, 2011 Hi, My name is Jack and many of you know me in the community and some could care less who I am. What I am is a compassionate person when it comes to our medical marijuana laws. When this law first came about in Michigan there were only a few ways to get access to the info. Either by coming to MMMA site and forum to talk about it or start a compassion club in your local community and take the info to the cities. At first there was compassion clubs popping up all over the State and filling library's, halls and churches with a lot of interested people wanting to know about this new law that was voted upon by 63% of our population. We had lawyers, doctors, teachers and every day folks like you and I. Everyone shared info with everybody. It was a very closeness feeling back then. Now how many non profit Compassion Clubs are left in the State of Michigan that you know still have regular public and private meetings? What happened from then and now?I think once people figured out what they could from the compassion clubs they took that info and started their own compassionate centers or dispensary s and instead of giving info for free they started charging for it. Instead of looking for multi caregivers or patients to distribute medicine they want to be the sole distributor of said medicines. So now they have their own interest at heart and business model to protect. I remember going to all the new start ups for compassion clubs there was so much excitement about the new laws and the possibilities that could come of it. We never figured in the plans back then what to do when and if the legislators didn't see eye to eye with us and our new law. Most back then were saying no way could changes come about because it would take a super majority vote. Well now look at where were at. People now are saying they can get 75% majority vote. So where will that leave compassion clubs when said and done. I don't think we will end up with a law that favors us. And that's a shame considering what the clubs once stood for. I really do enjoy still going to all the compassion clubs activities and events. I know we try and host one a month and other clubs have similar type activities also. Just wondering what kind of activities will be left for patients in the end when all is said and done. Who really is looking out for us and our well being and not just our wallets? Please support all non profit compassion club as they do bust their butts for the patients in mind. And if they are gone I do think I will miss them the most. I've meet so many good people from them. Such a close family feeling when you truly belong to one of these kinds of models. Good luck finding a non profit compassion club in the future. petitejewels 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
