minnesota medical marinjuana question.. of sorts...
Posted 04 September 2009 - 07:20 AM
If/when Minnesota receives these laws, will I be able to get a medical marijuana card, or whatever it is, for depression?
I was diagnosed with clinical depression a couple years ago, saw a therapist, and took anti-depressants.
I didn't like the way they made me feel at all, so I stopped taking them. I've been off them for 2 years, and I still feel the depression.
Sorry to drag on.... but weed really does help.

I've heard that a ballot initiative is going to be in the works for this year's state elections like they had in MI. I would suspect the authors of that bill would likely be the ones to help bring it to a ballot initiative. I've been wondering about this of late, as I haven't heard a thing about it since "King Pawlenty" veto'd. Only thing we'd be up against is that not as many people turn out for the non-Presidential elections. THe white hairs who still believe the reefer madness propaganda would go to register their "no" votes. We need young people turning out in droves to help push this through.

First, are all of you all registered to vote? If not, do so! TODAY!
Second, you need to start EDUCATING the "white hairs"! Look, they are getting to the age where all those nasty "old age" ailments- cancer, Alzheimer's, diabetes, Parkinson's, heart attack and strokes- are appearing. I've seen an elderly lady plunk down $400 for a few bottles of pills and wondered how many of them could be replaced by cannabis. Seniors are being forced into choosing between rent, electricity and food! SSI (disability) is being cut! No cost of living increases on Social Security. Let them know there IS an alternative to the expensive, side-effect laden pills! CANNABIS!
This is one of the things my list is made for- to educate those who cannot afford the pills, that cannabis is a cheap, growable alternative! A few plants tucked in among the roses is all it would take to cut their pain medication bills. But unless they know about cannabis and what it can do, they will go on believing the government lies!
Do you know someone who could use my list? Grandpa Joe, or Aunt Milly, or the sweet old lady down the street? Does your phone book list doctor's addresses? Do you have enough dedication to send pages of the list to politicians? Stamps are cheap- email is free. What are you waiting for? Change someone's world! Tell them about cannabis!

They had talked about getting it on the ballot for 2010, but recently it almost sounded like they were going to put it in front of Pawlenty again?? Rep. Steve Murphy from Red Wing was speaking about it recently. I hope that they go the ballot route so that Pawlenty doesn't get another chance to grandstand politically at the expense of seriously ill patients. His actions are unforgivable.
Has anyone heard anything else about this? I'd love to hear a status on the bill/ballot initiative but I'm not sure which group is spearheading it or if it is just dead until we get a new Governor?
Oh- depression was not listed as I recall in the 2009 version of the bill S.F. 97.
By the time they whittled down the bill with ridiculous amendments, they were trying to "guess" what Pawlenty "might" sign. Even terminal cancer patients did not get protection under the law. What a scary, evil man Pawlenty is. Uggh.
