Americans for Safe Access
By Ron Marczyk, RN "It is clear that we're in the midst of a serious national conversation about marijuana." ~ Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske Let's start that serious national conversation about marijuana! Seventy-five years late is better than never. Why now? Because marijuana legalization support is growing and is more popular by several points then any politician in the country! This new marijuana majority has the momentum, the votes and the moral high ground; if you support prohibition you are showing your age and your lack of medical science knowledge and you shouldn't be in office making decisions that affect young people 18-34 who are the new face of America. This new marijuana spring just gave birth to legalization. There ain't no stopping this good thing. Those running for any public office in the future would be wise to join the winning side and come in for the big win with us. Cannabis will be completely legal in the US by 2020, two presidential cycles from now. The writing is on the wall, and the simple age demographics of the U.S. assure it. Our first serious national topic of conversation: Stop this War on Marijuana Marijuana prohibition has wounded our nation, and we need to stop this bleeding. For no cost, our nation could be healed with the stroke of a pen overnight! A compassionate example would be: • An executive order of nationwide amnesty for any nonviolent person in prison or awaiting trail for marijuana possession...
Marijuana Spring 2013, Part 2 Marijuana legalization for personal use is just the start. This vote also frees medical marijuana research, hemp farming, and a return to a hemp-based economy that will play a vital part in reversing the coming man-made environmental disaster. Marijuana prohibition criminalizes the use of the safest, most versatile plant known to man. Marijuana prohibition is in large part a cause of global warming. Marijuana prohibition has stopped 75 years of human progress; it is an idea that will be thrown on the scrap heap of history. All of this is about to change. The coming marijuana spring will be in big part a global shift to the simplicity of a cannabis-based resource economy for medicine, fuel, food and housing, plus many more products. Widespread use of cannabis-based products will increase the wealth of any producing nation. Have respect for this plant... yeah, it going to be that important to the human race as one answer to cool the earth. Sometimes a hero arrives in the form of a plant; cannabis can save this planet in a million ways. The world needs the cannabis plant now to help save us from the coming environmental holocaust coming our way. The perfect plant, for the perfect time of great need. Presently the world's population is 7 billion; by 2050 we will add 2 billion more humans to the earth. That's the equivalent of two present-day Chinas. We will need 20 percent more of everything. Many of the world's...
By Ron Marczyk, RN Toke of the Town Columnist Part 1: Civil Liberties and Personal Freedom "First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win." ~ Gandhi November 2012 will go down in history as the beginning of the end of marijuana prohibition. What a fantastic way to end the year on such a high note! "What's happened is a 'crossing of the Rubicon' moment for marijuana reform" -- a point of no return. The government has fought a 75-year war to eradicate a plant that has served humans well since the dawn of civilization and has lost not just a battle but a war, has wasted in blood and treasure over a trillion dollars, and has destroyed millions of lives. The War On Marijuana is over, and marijuana has won! We voted, and marijuana use now must be considered a human right. We, the new marijuana majority, are calling off the War On Marijuana due to its stupidity! This marijuana legalization tipping point is not theoretical, it is here and now. This "new, unstoppable marijuana spring" and this plant are ready for prime time. The writing is on the wall; marijuana will be completely legal in the U.S. within 10 years. "Demographics project legalization with a 2-1 majority among younger voters," and legalization is just a matter of time. Hey... Have you even tried putting toothpaste back into the tube? The new marijuana spring is here to stay... You cannot legislate against...
