Oregon hospitals denying life saving organ transplants to legal medical marijuana patients | 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 can get far worse than this, for reasons known only to the medical facilities. I know a woman that almost died in Legacy. Her sister had to feed her, she’d been run over by a car, and was denied pain medication and they did try to refuse her care.
    They are lucky it was not me. I would have sued them into oblivion. THIS is why we have to call our elected politicians every day, to drive home the point that legalization is the only way.
    These doctors know damn well that they are spouting a lie, a series of lies, meant to keep the Oregon Board of Medical Examiners happy.
    There is no compassion, because even if those patients did NOT use pot, ever, let ‘em try to get medical help without insurance, or that 20% up front. Hell, OHSU will NOT give a disability attorney a patient’s medical records without a fight, and then money up front. And to think, my tax dollars help to fund these uncompassionate people. Money is their god, status their meat, and image their drink.
    We, as human beings, do NOT matter.

    That’s a good idea.

    All I know is this is like saying we cant give you a transplant because you are black or gay or hispainic, its discrimination at its finest! If you haven’t been upset about the drug war by now, then this alone should have you up in arms, how dare our doctors and hospitals play god and tell someone they have to die because of anything.

    This is the reason we all fight for legalizing so we can step out of the discriminative hole we have been put into and live like any normal American. We just happen to like cannabis, like people some like Pepsi or pickles, doesn’t mean we are bad people for liking chocolate ice cream when you like mint. We need to make people aware that we are being discriminated against, the story should be “Had to die because of discrimination” thats a story no American would stand for but what we all live that discrimination daily.

    Word of the day “Discrimination”!

    Perhaps some picketing at these hospitals – with a call to media MIGHT make some change … They don’t like bad media and they would be forced to repeat their lies to explain them, obliging a retort.
