A plea for medical marijuana in Augusta, Georgia | The NORML Stash Blog

I am the producer of The NORML Network, the host of the NORML SHOW LIVE and The NORML Stash Blog, and NORML's Outreach Coordinator. I'm married, live in Portland, Oregon, and I am a registered medical marijuana caregiver in this state. I've worked days as an IT geek and nights as a professional musician. Previously, I have been the host of my own political talk radio show on satellite radio. I've been the High Times "Freedom Fighter of the Month" and I travel across the country to educate people on marijuana reform. I've dedicated my life to bringing an end to adult marijuana prohibition and re-legalizing cannabis hemp, and I'm honored to be chosen by NORML to give voice to the Marijuana Nation and to speak for those who can't speak up.

    It’s a CRIME to take that woman’s marijuana away! I suffer from MS, and Migraines as well and until you’ve had chronic migraines, you don’t KNOW what severe pain is! It’s the only thing that keeps me from taking tons of oxycodone and relpax! I Our brains have endogenous receptors for this natural medication, keeping it suppressed is the real crime!

    I just recently became “A casualty of the drug war ” myself due to my activism in my State. Am I ashamed? Hell No! This just makes me want to fight harder!

    I’m a medicinal marijuana patient. In High school I broke my back in a rather unusual way that caused my lowest vertebrae to separate from my sacrum. This resulted in a floating condition that causes my muscles in my lower back to overcompensate and put too much pressure on my disks and causes them to herniate. I refused narcotic painkillers and my doctor opted to try the use of marijuana to treat me. Within 2 months of this treatment I was pain free. I’m now currently 25 years old and with the use of medicinal marijuana I have absolutely no pain. However, my condition has not healed and the longer I go without marijuana the worse and worse my back gets until it comes to a point I cannot even get out of bed. I just moved to Augusta Georgia for a work opportunity. Coming from Colorado I was afraid the laws may be strict. I have yet to find a supplier in this town and my back is getting continuously worse. Its been almost two weeks since my last puff. Another month of this and I won’t be able to work. I pray for compassionate laws across the Nation but for now I pray mostly for a source of my medicine. If there is someone in Augusta Georgia that can help me please contact me at kean.hammond@aggiemail.usu.edu. I’d be forever grateful!

    A Patient in Need,

    Im with you guys..I currently have a walking disablity and the cannabis helps with the swelling and stiffness in my ankles and knees as well as helps me relax to goto sleep at night…I have tryed codone pain relief and It only causes more health problems. Georgia please have compassion for those of us that are long term pain mangement patients and want to take another road instead of using very addictive painrelief, I am not a criminal, I am a 24 year old young man that is disabled and wanting to have a choice of what goes into my body…

    The reason the government wont legalize it because the police make so much money of arresting people for it seizing property, the money the dealers have made, fines the people have to pay are government is all about money the problem is much deeper than one law

    so why not ?.it is the only thing that has ever helped my migrains .so why not help people ?
    moraphine helps for pain so they going to take that off the market ,food helps people going to take that off the market .beer and liqiur and cigs kill more people than anything on the plant going to take all them off the market ?? the point is legalize it and take it out of the hands of the bad elements hands, if its legal then no has to go into really bad areas or pay a drug dealers money , and when they cant pay they shoot them, or worst of all get shot because the drug dealer just plain dont have it and just wants kill you for your money or your car .well i may not have made a really good point here because you the government are going to do what your money backers tell you to do .this used to be a counrty for the people by the people ,now its just special interests and what some drunkin govner or senater or what evers money backers wants .when the people finally get enough we will vote there buts out .AND GET SOME REALL PEOPLE IN OFFICE THAT WILL LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE .CAUSE YOU PEOPLE SEEM TO WANT TO IGNORE THE PUBLIC. ENOUGH SAID .REMEBER VOTE FOR THE PEOPLE WHO WILL LISTEN .

    I am a resident of GA and something must be done about this.

    Legalize, Educate, and Regulate.

    People lets open our eyes and see the truth for what this is…

  7. Need SOME Rules in place YO

    I think its a great idea, we just got to be real about this. We need ordinances in place to ensure that cannabis is treated as poisonous to the kidz…ya know a lock law on any medicinal cabinets…etc.

    #2 A public fire safety course..ehh em, help out tha fireman, they can teach the couses…ya know about how wires and outlets make fires, and how to set limits.$$$$$$$

    #3 Outdoor rule that MUST have privacy fence and MUST be at least 5 feet inside property line, as not to offend neighbors.
    And third 18 and over by prescription, must buy a vaporizer at liscensing in order to obtain permit, ya know to presearve health.

    But aside from that nitty gritty its a must a will bring the dollar back to beautiful ga…and most hippies(95%)don’t litter, king of the hill is bullcrap. Plus want, have, and love work. Go figure. 8-)

    so now at 40x these days the government knows nothing still they wont make pot legal because they love pissing money away and using nazi methods to get pot useres o but yet other countrys have become smater .if its legal with id’s to purchase then its out in the open.
    no need for back alley bullsh*t no more shootings over not payments and shootings cause they want to rip someone off .cant they see after what 100 years it cant be stoped !
    o did mention they love the money ,they being the law love the money they get when you get caught !its not about the pot its about the money .money for the cops to witch they will blow on bad info and on a stupid 1/4 bag of weed.
    look i have never heard of nor have i seen any one od on weed .but then you have this fake pot that dumb people will dye with hair dye and sell it to you .this is much better right ? no this is bad they call it pot .but real pot is les harmful then this fake crap .buy for 20 dollars an ounce then sell it for 20 dollars a 1/4 ounce with very bad chems on it.so in closing .it should be done like beer and such .sell it legal
    and be done with it, 8-)

    :lovers: Very disabled people are suffering and sometimes the typical medications are not affective and sometimes cause serious reactions in certan patients. This is why doctors should be able to legally prescribe Marijuana in these situations. So I sincerely ask that the state of Georgia pass a law that would protect these patients right to have this medication. More information about an effective program that the state of Oregon has administered can be found at: State of Oregon: Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP)
