Aloha to thee. A nice find sent to us from Paul von Hartmann. It would be good to send this to all Hawai’i State Reps. and Senators, U.S. Reps., new U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono, Governor Abercrombie and news media right now. Mahalo.

Daniel Inouye R.I.P. He really helped us with a surprisingly strong, pro-medical marijuana letter back in 1992, way before it was popular. And his office assisted Share to visit me in here last year when the B.O.P. was blocking us. Mahalo and aloha.

All the best to you,

Roger

URGING THE UNITED STATES DRUG ENFORCEMENT AGENCY TO CONSIDER
RESCHEDULING MEDICINAL CANNABIS (AKA MARIJUANA) AND THE
UNITED STATES CONGRESS TO CONSIDER PASSING LEGISLATION
RESCHEDULING MEDICINAL CANNABIS.

 

1 WHEREAS, over sixty United States professional
2 organizations including: the National Association for Public
3 Health Policy, American Public Health Association, American
4 Society of Addiction Medicine, American Journal of Psychiatry,
5 Federation of American Scientists, and the New England Journal
6 of Medicine have concluded that many patients suffering from
7 AIDS, cancer, glaucoma, Tourette’s Syndrome, and many other
8 specific debilitating diseases, as well as traumatic physical
9 injuries, are finding relief from chronic symptoms and
10 debilitating pain through the use of marijuana as medicine; and
11
12 WHEREAS, many patients in Hawai`i have testified to the
13 efficacy of marijuana in treating their own chronic symptoms
14 and debilitating pain; and
15
16 WHEREAS, such patients are currently subject to federal
17 criminal prosecution for using marijuana to relieve their
18 symptoms and suffering; and
19
20 WHEREAS, medical doctors who are aware of the positive
21 effects of marijuana may not prescribe or “recommend” it as
22 medicine without fear of criminal prosecution due to
23 marijuana’s placement as a Schedule I federally controlled
24 substance; and
25
26 WHEREAS, no state, including Hawai`i, is obligated to make
27 conduct that has been made criminal under federal law (such as
28 using marijuana to relieve severe medical conditions) a crime
29 under state law; and
30
31 WHEREAS, thirty-six states have officially recognized the
32 value of marijuana as medicine, and voters in Alaska, Arizona,
33 California, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington have
34 overwhelmingly passed initiatives allowing the medicinal use of
35 marijuana despite prevailing federal law; now, therefore,

Here we GO, Hawai’i! Thanks Paul. I’m passing this along to my email list. Please note that there is a blog roll at the end of the website article to post links and comments. Please do. :-]~

By the way, it says ‘the legislature MIGHT amend the pakalolo laws’. “We the people” TELL the legislature what we want! They work for us as long as we have a voice and stand-up for what we want. Remember; silence = consent. The squeeky wheel gets the legal bong-hits!

All the best to everyone!
