Portland Reporter Anna Canzano: A medical marijuana-hating sheriff’s best friend | 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.

    I heard 3 independent, unrelated stories by 3 different people yesterday, in conversations completely unprovoked by me, in 2 states I might add, about excruciating pain that doctors refused to give opioid pain killers to. In this world where doctors cannot even prescribe legitimate pain patients medication without fear of the DEA, is it any wonder they turn to cannabis?

    Doen’t suprise me at all that misinformed people are showing so much discust toward patients..They don’t get it they won’t understand until they themselves are in a position of choosing natural instead of synthetic symptom filled garbage..The funniest part about this is our government has patents on cannibinoids and show numeral studies for the good of cannabis but yet lack the mental power to connect the Scheduling to the facts. Sheduling anytype of chemical leads misinformation to the public. Once i relized that our scheduling was not how it should be, i started telling everyone i know that we are being misinformed that if cannabis is a schedule one, then damn near everything on the whole list should be a schedule one. Cannabis is not a schedule one just look at its 100% synthetic version of THC, Marinol a schedule 3.. So a plant that produces up to around 20 to 25 percent THC is supposidly worse for you then 100% sythetic THC?? I call bullshit!! I guess this is what happens when the masses are misinformed and have the ol’ mob mentality of “cannabis is bad get rid of it completely if people will abuse and misuse it.” I don’t believe that in a supposed free country that anyone and i mean anyone can tell you personally what you can and can’t chemically ingest.. Everything has chemicals that start from the basic elements and are transformed through adaptability adding variables and more chemicals like alkaloids found in the heroin producing poppies. From food to poison everything has a chemical bond of somewhat, so who gets to play GOD and keep us from using a substance thats been around since the first man walked this planet? Keep on Smoking Smokers our time will come..

    It looks like the prohibitionists are taking their last breath and have to resort to these dirty tactics to even try and fight the truth that is now out in the public. They can feel the end coming and they are chicken little screaming the sky is falling! Its a cheap shot and I think most people are starting to see through this BS. In fact i would say people are just sick of the fighting and the minor few that keep saying how bad this plant is. They never have any proof of it, plus I would think most people are just tired of the police harassing sick people that need this plant, it gets soooo old. Its almost funny really, they look so so sad and just plain crazy really, it just proves we are winning.

    Weed just drives people crazy… the ones that don’t have it and think that nobody else should. It’d be a different story if there were bodies and shit all over. The more this crap continues the stupid-er it gets.
