trichcycler Posted October 27, 2013 Report Share Posted October 27, 2013 I am at my wits end supporting all those who didn't support themselves with their own common sense. I have to wonder if the gun rights activists step up with cash to defend the guys that forgot to renew a ccw, maybe transporting an untagged deer, or leaving their ammo and guns out for children to find....if a court case threatens to remove more gun rights? It sure doesn't seem like the law gives two hoots about what we do, until we break the law mostly. Set up shop, sell to passerby's, farmers markets, a "little smoke in my pipe for the ride", unauthorized people transporting cannabis/pants, driving illegal vehicles, "forgot my permits at home" , and the hundreds of other excuses I've read. Now I would still find them all innocent at a jury trial, but unfortunately these defendants plea to a lesser charge in most of these cases, leading to a systematic dismantling of our Act. In the mean time we offer what seems to be basic common sense to our brothers and sisters, but weekly they drop the ball. I would think our efforts would be better spent in education, instead of ignorance defense funds. The people that "forgot" to follow the law will only learn, and maybe at that, AFTER the fact, and AFTER our act is further restricted. A preemptive strike against ignorance seems like it might do better than pouring out hard earned cash to someone who forgot to put stink socks on their exhaust, leaving us with a flavor like "he's going to jail because of no stink sock" mantras, and nobody should be jailed for cannabis, no matter how stupid their behavior. Then when good folks try to re remind readers of basic responsibilities, and real simple laws, many jump in and scold the redundancy of the information. Its as if many start at the bottom of what is necessary, to grow, to provide, to be high, to transport, to register, to remain legal, and let the law pick up the slack when they're caught. We continue to support this behavior while ignoring the real cause we're supporting. When we pay for defense of a guy who thought 600 clones in his 200 foot greenhouse was covered, or the one who was following the law, except for those mushrooms he was growing, or those 25 unregistered guns in his closet he thought was no big deal, what are we actually supporting here? People look into the program and see we raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to defend the small percentage of people who just cant seem to get it together while breaking the law. I'll continue to support those people, in a quasi hypocritical way, because I am a sheep and don't know what else to do with all my money, but I think that common sense cannot be instilled, and would not be surprised if many I support will not be running another beg-a-thon in the near future. some people missed out on the only year that taught common sense. "Most of us learned everything we need to know in kindergarten" I heard. People are dying in prison for growing a plant, mothers are losing their babies, our country has hidden possible cures/treatments from us for a hundred years in the name of profit, while others forget to lock the door, or do a plant count every day. Some people have stories never told, while others brag of their ignorance and continue to bring our medical marijuana movement to a halt. After so many patriots for so many years have fought tougher wars than us to bring this plant to light, now they see us slowly ripping it apart with ignorance, pride, and just plain dumbassedness, while we blame the law. Maybe we could just give legal weed a chance? Seems as long as they let just anybody grow medicine for sale to the public, there will be serious consequences to pay. Some of these growers can't remember to complete daily tasks in their life, and scoff at the most important ones. They decide for themselves how much poison is safe for their patients, which nutrients are not chocked full of heavy metals, and regularly believe that mold spores are trichomes ! Its very difficult to maintain a legal patient registry for these folks, as you can imagine, and guess where their substandard weed gets marketed..........markets, dispensaries, clubs, etc, where the sickest, oldest of us may have gone to procure our medicine. but we'll continue to support them in their grow follies, with some hope that giving away money will gel our current rights unchanged, but the reality is that these lawless people will continue to folly, as repeat offenders, according to our legal history, and also will continue to result in further imposed restriction, more jail time and broken families. way to go representing folks, keep u the good work. Is there just one person arrested and jailed for growing their legal amounts of plants,legal cannabis weight, in a legal room, with legal occupants, no illegal sales, no unregistered firearms, no outstanding warrants, no prior drug convictions, no domestic violence, no buddy thefts ?? I've never heard of any that I recall, but surely they would receive my full support. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
