Medical marijuana raid raises question: What’s Obama policy? | 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.

    Obama is lost in space. I don’t think he can cope with what comes at him in that office. He lets other people push their own agendas and we end up with policies that could have come from the Bush era. I am seriously considering switching to republican status so I can vote for Ron Paul in the primaries. Have I lost my mind?

    It’s not just Oama, there are a lot of other people that NEEDs
    it be removed from office! It’s a waste of our TAX dollars.
    They should let the states decide, at least it HELP balance
    thier BUDGET!! That’s what congerss does’t want todo. VOTE THEM
    ALL OUT :-| If they can’t help us anymore than this!

  20. Erick Dukes

    I GUARANTEE I will not vote for him again unless he follows through on this issue! How many LIES can we as a country take from one man who promised so much and has delivered so little? If he wants a second term, he better start making good on all of the “change” he promised. The war on drugs is a complete failure. Fake the Wuck UP!!

    Thanks for sharing your story, I think a lot of people are disappointed with the president and it may cost him next elections.

    I am a 62 year old man. A malformed spine caused me to develop compressive neuropathy. The nerves in my hands and feet are dying and they scream in pain every second of the long, long time it takes to die. I am taking some real fun drugs–morphine, Fentanyl, Lyrica, Cymbalta and a couple of others. All of these meds are downers and I hate downers. They have stolen my life away. This disease will be with me until the day I die [I told you it takes a long, long time for nerves to die in an otherwise healthy man] I have been fortunate to be provided with medical marijuana every once in a while from some kind fellow who grows it for his father.
    Cannabis kills a large portion of the pain without leaving me a zombie like the morphine does. It also helps a lot with the depression that would normally occur in someone like myself when facing this future, a future with no hope of a cure, they can only slow down the process as much as possible. My feet are useless blocks of wood and my hands will be going next.
    I do not tell you this for your sympathy, shit happens and I just got dealt a bad hole card. So it goes. I relate my situation so that I may inquire just what kind of man would refuse me the cannabis or arrest anyone who attempted to aid me? A Chicago politician, that’s who. Please do not vote for that man ever again. I would consider it a personal favor.
