We are going to try and restart the old model compassion club network and are looking for volunteers to help with organization and starting local clubs. Is there anyone out there interested in getting this important project off the ground? Please PM me if you'd like to help.

I would like to see the compassion clubs start back up because they can be a great source of infromation. I think that Celliach also believes this and that is why he is willing to help. I would like to see a compassion club started here in Montcalm county, but I can't start it but i would help as mich as I can. Tarzen I know you have had a rough time lately, but bringing this negitivity is not helping anyone or the movement. You might have gave up on the communtiy, but some of us think there is hope so we try to do what we can.

Maybe you need to take a rest from all the stress. Coming on here and spewing venom certainly can't be helping your blood pressure.

I have been involved in CC's since their inception, having founded the Brighton CC. We began all this with the idea that the MMMA would be assisting us and guiding us, but, with the MMMA growing so fast, they simply didn't have the manpower needed to be of much help. I soon realized that we were pretty much on our own so I went around the state and talked with other CC founders, saw how they were doing business and took the ideas that would work best in my area, discarded others. I saw some pretty impressive things being presented, but also saw others that I found troubling. I would suggest that you get a real good feel for how LEO and prosecutors from your area are approaching the whole Medical Cannabis idea, and work to stay within their tolerance levels, that way, you don't put your members in harms way. It is a shame and a sham that the whole state doesn't abide by the same set of rules in their workings with the community, but that is the way that it is, best of luck. I commend you for showing an interest in helping others... Peace ... j.b.

The whole point was to create a club that local LEO could come to and have no problems with. That's the way we set up the DCCC back in Jan. 2009. I don't know for a fact that LEO has come to our meetings, but there have been a few visitors over the years that never came to a second meeting, and were very suspicious when they were there.

We like to say that if LEO does show up, the worst thing that can happen is they'll get bored.......and on the other side, they might learn something.

Just Budz,
I had no understanding of the history or start of the cc clubs. For that great thumbnail, thank you.

Dr. Tarzan,
It's difficult to read what being an advocate has put you through. Like Joe says, 'This movement has warriors.'

I'm not going to be kind to someone that is just coming in here to destroy the work that I want to do. I understand he had problems. Instead of complaining and pointing out why it won't work he could instead help to resolve some of the problems that he had so they won't be repeated by others.

I have work to do and I'm not gonna slow down because someone else couldn't do the job, and I'm not going to let that person keep putting up roadblocks in my way because he's sour.

Let's carry on with this thing. A compassion club does not need a lawyer on retainer if they are sticking with the program. In the gray areas, they are essential. The new/classic Compassion Clubs steer well clear of the gray areas.

Then ignore it without being insulting, you stooped lower by doing that, and carry on.

As far as I know, there is no written plan, per se...

We just tried to keep all of the members informed of local and national developments which might affect them. We always told every meeting that adherence to the law was tantamount, any variation from that law was inviting problems. In most cases that would be enough, but there are area's of the state where even strict adherence to the MMMA is not enough (i.e. Oakland County and others). As I stated before, get a feel for how your local LEO's and prosecutors view this and try to keep their concerns in mind as you proceed. Peace ... j.b.

There is a basic plan posted on the Homepage. Unfortunately, the Homepage is down right now and I'm not sure how to access the CC section. As soon as the problem is rectified I'll post a link. Zapatos may be able to supply one in the mean time.

We will be coming up with a plan in the near future that we can send new leaders a copy of. I'd also like to find several "regional directors" to help set up clubs in your area of the state.
