    I am challenging YOU!

    I challenge you to do one TENTH of what I do virtually every day to get cannabis legalized!

    GC has 643,149 members! :gc_rocks: (Yeah, I know not all are active members, but there are still MANY. like you, who are! ) GC could be a "sleeping giant" when it comes to activism! And it's time to wake up!

    How much longer do you want to wait for completely LEGAL cannabis? Let's say just 1 out of every 100 members takes this challenge, that means over 6,000 new people all working toward a common goal! (What would a pile of 6,000 pro-cannabis letters to Jeff Sessions look like? :eek2:)

    I want you to get your copy of my list and start using it! You can get it here-
    Granny's in the news!
    Or you can email me at stormcrow(a in a circle)greenpassion.org (Don't forget to change the (a in a circle) to an @) That will get you on my mailing list and gets you free updates every 6 months (and NO "viagra spam"!).

    So what did I do yesterday? I educated myself by reading several medical studies. You can, at least, read a couple of news articles each week on the medical uses of cannabis. You just need to run "Medical Marijuana" through any news search engine, or check out the first section of my List.

    Saying "Pot is good for all kinds of sicknesses!", just doesn't make it! Saying "I just read in WebMD that cannabis lowers your risk of Alzheimer's and may even slow its progression!" is far more likely to get a person interested in learning about cannabis. And once the medical facts about cannabis become known, the need for full legalization becomes obvious!

    Marijuana May Slow Alzheimer's (news - 2006) Marijuana May Slow Alzheimer's

    I educated others by commenting in the news at Yahoo. (Heaven knows, they NEED educating!) The comments I make are like these from yesterday's article at Director of drug abuse institute offers words of caution on marijuana

    "I also have arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome, too. I make my own pain-killing cream with cannabis! It is very easy to do. You need one of those little coffee cup warmer hotplates, about a third of a cup of vegetable oil (I use hemp seed oil & olive oil), a bit of bees wax ( the hobby or sewing store has it) and about an eighth of an ounce of cannabis. Heat the oil and cannabis on the coffee cup warmer in a flat-bottomed mug, and leave it on overnight. The next day, strain out the cannabis, and reheat the oil. Add a small chunk of bees wax and heat until the wax is melted. A drop of mint extract is nice to add as the cream cools. It's that easy to make your own medicine with cannabis!"

    "This might give her a clue! "Tobacco-Related Health Costs: $800; Booze-Related Health Costs: $165; Pot-Related Health Costs: $20 – Any Questions?" (Huffington Post, but based on Canadian government statistics)."

    And one aimed at Cindy-Bin, a die-hard, total nut-job of a prohibitionist, who types her "fingers to the bone", weeping and wailing about the "immorality" of smoking pot! She is really quite funny- in a sick sort of way! :blush:
    (And actually, she is S-L-O-W-L-Y coming around to a more reasonable mind-set! She now (grudgingly) admits that there IS such a thing as medical cannabis use! Progress is slow with her, but we (various activists) HAVE made progress in educating her! :hello:)

    "cindy, you STILL haven't answered my question. WHY is it "immoral" to use a healing herb, even "recreationally" when it reduces the rate of death by head trauma ("Marijuana use associated with lower death rates in patients with traumatic brain injuries" - eurekalert) AND also lessens your risk of Alzheimer's ("Cannabinoids remove plaque-forming Alzheimer's proteins from brain cells" - Science Daily). There is NO SUCH THING as "recreational use", all cannabis use is medical use- whether you like it or not!"

    I only made 11 comments/replies yesterday, since Fridays are kind of busy for me, it's the day I volunteer at the local dispensary to educate folks there! Not everyone can volunteer at a dispensary, but all of you can join a pro-cannabis group, or even just donate maybe $4.20 per month to one of them? (I bought my first little cannabis leaf pin at a NORML table set up at a 1969 San Diego Love-in for $3. I still have it among my collection of cannabis leaf jewelry.)

    I am going to write a brief email today to Sen. Diane Feinstein (I'm in California), thanking her for FINALLY coming to her senses about legalizing cannabis- although I will phrase it a tad more "sweetly"! :D I know she is doing it mainly for the votes, but I'll take any progress toward real legalization, even if it is for the wrong reasons! :coolalt: (I really had planned to do this yesterday, but ended up emailing a reply to my sister about some personal stuff, instead. Family first!)

    So how long has it been since you wrote a letter to a politician? :confused_2: They aren't mind-readers, ya know. You have to tell them what you think! (Keep it polite!)

    Now, there isn't anything hard about being an activist. You can even keep a "low profile". I managed to keep working toward legalization while working at various schools over the decades.

    So how many of you are willing to put a little effort into getting cannabis legalized? :poke:

    Kids, I'm 70, and I'll be 71 in July. I feel and look good for a gal my age, but nobody lasts forever!:ladiegaga:

    And just like I was inspired by the late Dr. Tod Mikuriya's list of conditions to create my "Granny Storm Crow's List", I'm hoping I can inspire you to, in some way, work toward getting cannabis fully and completely legalized for everyone!

    With love and hope,

    Granny :GettingStoned: (Got into the hash again! lol)

  2. I hope cannabis becomes fully legal one day. I think people should be allowed to grow it and smoke it without any worries about being arrested for growing it or smoking it. This would ultimately take away all the street dealers and crime.

    If people have issues with cannabis and they feel they can't stop using it these people can be helped as well because they will be taking it all into there own hands giving them there own responsibilities.

    The activism needs to be taken away from the weed I think granny and it need to be made peaceful and less of a taboo.

  3. I think when it comes to big responsibilities like driving a car or operating machinery it's like taking medicine or drinking alcahol you have to know your limits and be safe imo

  4. So just how do you think we got from where we were in the 1950s and 60s :cop: to where we now have 29 states in the US with some form of legal cannabis?

    That change didn't happen by sitting around saying "Oh WOW, pot should be legal! :passing-joint:

    A LOT of people worked HARD to get you the freedom to light up that joint without fearing spending the next 20 years in prison! :judge:

    If anything there should be MORE activism!

  5. Well granny I'm not going to take the fight away from you just like I wouldn't take the fight away from my granny if she was doing all of this.......... But my granny isn't doing all of this. Lol......My granny was happy with a cigarette and now she's 80 and stopped smoking lol. My granny said when she was a young girl she used to buy a really long cigarette they sold back then and she said she used to have a little bit of it through the day. She's probably lying like grannies do lol

    I'll tell you what got me lighting my joint granny all the guys and girls before me who have broken the law to grow good weed and broken the law to experiment with weed getting the perfect varieties lol.

    Now days and like the past 10 years I've read weed magazines and have been very interested in the strains of weed people have gotten from around the world and the different strains that have been cross bread.

    And I'm very interested in the cannabis cup.

  6. You guys want to know WHY cannabis is still illegal after 80 years?


    LOOK IN THE MIRROR!

    I don't even know why I bother!

  7. Give 'em Hell, Granny! I believe you know that I'm solidly in agreement with you. The activism needs to be ongoing because we're not there yet. These new generations don't realize what a struggle it was in the formative years of the 60's & 70's. An arrest for a pipe would ruin a young person's life or a joint could mean hard time. That took those of us with bright futures completely off the map unjustly but one of the good things that came of it is that I don't have to be afraid of what they can do to me anymore and thus my activism.

    The penalties have been greatly reduced and for many I'm sure that the matter of cannabis legality is seen as a done deal that will happen soon. They don't realize that it still takes activists to keep the ball rolling. It has to be pushed through ballots and legislatures and it's not going to happen by itself. I live in a state that has legalized medical cannabis and it has made a major difference in my life. Get active and experience that difference for yourselves.

    My first NORML meeting inspired me to make my first trip to Acapulco to find the Golden Keys and I haven't looked back. vil-surveille.gif

  8. Get PotHeads in every political race. Call out the other side on their Marijuana thoughts.
    We know that Pot can do much more than the "Laws" will allow.. Like save the Planet for starters...
    I plan on running in the next available position.. Maybe Prime Minister ....

    Let the Activists activate... NOW

  9. Great thread

    Genius ideas

    Definitely need more of this

    I've had this on my mind for a while, nice to see the information being shared and open for collaboration

    LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!

    And, at 71, your presence is highly valued
    :love: :Love-Plant::love:
    I know that you must feel strongly about defending this medical plant, which has drawn negative attention instead of receiving the positive light it deserves

    It's been a long fight, but progress continues
