I have been trained to ignore what someone told someone else, and have learned not to chase rumors, especially on forums, but I feel I need to speak here. Let it be clear, I love this community, and consider all on this site family. I fight every day to defend the constitution,which seems to be under attack every day, in every courtroom in the state. I have defended the sick, and those who honestly believed that they did not violate the law. My involvement with this community has taken me to Lansing,and when i get a chance to speak, I speak of the horrors I have observed against patients and caregivers. I see it and live it every day. Let me be clear about this, I do not want the law changed. I believe in,supported and advocated with the Marine to not change the law but to instead use the existing tools available to fix the so called problems. I even provided to Walsh on planet green trees the other night, straight out of the Marine playbook the alternative to amending the law to allow Leo access to the registry. I have been devoted to representing patients and caregivers, and I believe I have a very good grasp on the protections being vitiated by the courts. The solution is not to amend the law, but implement it instead.If anyone has ever listened to my rants every Thursday night, it is not about changing this law, but instead implementing it. How can this community take the government seriously about anything medical marihuana when the cards are 7 months behind, there have been no administrative action to add new conditions to the registry, and the privacy of patients and caregivers is being debated. Don't change the law implement it. This is my position. It has never wavered, and I plan to be next the marine on February 16 advocating the same, as I have every time I have had the opportunity. The marine and I spend probably too much time fighting for this community, there is a lot to be done,and more storms on the horizon. Let me be clear, the Marine and I have this communities back, there will be no give, no surrender. And nothing will get in between the two of us, ever. So I hope this is clear, and whatever kind words that were stated, albeit not enough for the marine standing in front of the bombs being tossed, was incorrect or mistaken if it implied that I have advocated for a change to this law. This simply in not true.
