1289 Miles To Freedom

1289 miles to freedom is my journey, what’s yours? This is the distance between my doorstep and Medicine Man Dispensary in Denver Colorado. I live in America. A country that is supposed to represent FREEDOM, yet I don’t share the same freedoms as my neighbors to the west in WA, CO, OR, Or CA. Hell, I don’t share the same rights as the state next to me, Arkansas, where medical cannabis was just legalized!

This Is a SAD SITUATION caused by draconian leadership. Leadership that shows it’s time for a change. Out with the old and in with the new. Political office should have limits, it shouldn’t be a career. You end up with corrupt power crazed leadership. Just ask the senators and governors of Tennessee, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, and other southern states why they don’t support medical cannabis. You’ll get the same BULLSHIT reply from each time from each one of them. Cannabis needs more research. HA! WTF! Can they read or do they just eat shit spend money and breath?

Ask Them Why

Political powers are playing games with good people and it’s time to hold them accountable. In war, oftentimes crimes are committed. When wars come to an end it’s not uncommon to hold certain individuals accountable for their crimes during that war. The WAR ON DRUGS, in particularly, the war on cannabis, has failed and failed miserably. Truths and facts were kept from the public while anti-cannabis propaganda was fueled and fed to the masses. I say it’s time to rawk the vote and vote them all out of office. I promise you there is more of us than there are of them.

Good people have been jailed, separated from their loved ones, and YES even told to basically DIE, rather than to end this heinous prohibition of this incredible plant! Coltyn Turner, Alexis Bortell, Charlotte Figi, these are just a few names in this great big sea of green that are illegally alive today thanks to the dedication of their family and cannabis.

Cannabis Wears A Coat of Many Colors

1289 miles to freedom should not be the distance I have to travel in order to legally possess/consume cannabis. If you’re caught with cannabis in prohibition states you face lengthy jail sentences for even the most minuscule of amounts. A seed and a roach, or a bowl and a dime bag can land you years of trouble involving jail time, probation, and drug classes. It’s absolutely ridiculous and must change!

When I’m in Colorado, I truly feel like a free citizen. The only crime I’m guilty of elsewhere is loving a plant. If that’s a crime then yes I’m guilty. The love of this plant isn’t just for the plant itself it’s for what it does for the people and the planet. Personally, I think those in power are scared of the unity that cannabis brings. The “Healing of the people”. Speaking about people, more of them are learning about what cannabis offers. They’re learning the truth while also learning that they’ve been lied to.

When Will It All End For Our Friends

Even those who don’t necessarily support consuming the plant or smoking it respect an adult’s right to make that choice for themselves. This support is bringing change. The U.S, Canada, Australia, and other countries are starting to see a positive shift signaling the end of decades of cannabis prohibition.

Cannabis is much safer than alcohol, tobacco, prescription drugs, or even over-the-counter drugs. Yet you can go to the store buy a 40 oz. or tall boy of beer and a pack of cigarettes they give it to you in a brown bag. Then it’s out the door and down the road you. Alcohol and tobacco kill millions of people every year. Prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications are equally as dangerous.

Not cannabis. Cannabis saves lives, changes lives, gives lives back to people, and provides a higher quality of living for many. Colorado, Washington State, Oregon, and California all have recreational and medical cannabis laws in place.

Cut Your Shit Out

The rest of the country should as well. Even our neighbors to the north in Canada are facing a similar issue with their government. One minute their leaders are saying that legalizing cannabis is about the health of the people, while in truth, it’s obviously about money and power.

They raid and shut down dispensaries that facilitate the people. Yet the dispensaries ran by the government in Canada can’t even meet the needs or demands of the patients they are supposed to provide for. What a joke!

To the political leaders of the world who stand against cannabis, here’s dome food for thought. CUT YOUR SHIT OUT! We’re on to you all collectively. Change your ways and support the people instead of your own personal agenda. If not, you may find yourself out of a job.

There more of us than there are you. It only takes one seed to tip the scales of justice in favor of the people. You dirty politicians have buried do many of us seeds that now you have a forest on your hands to thick to control.
