Dave KienitzSo what do you say to the millions of white Americans that are either locked up or going through hell jumping through the legal system to fight a conviction ? Enough of this black white bs . If a cop pulls you over and smells weed , you’re getting searched , period .8   ·  3 days ago

Emily Jean RollinsI also think a difficulty in proving the drug wars infectivity has been the polling. If someone calls u up and says hello im from the federal blah blah blah for the drug blah blah and i want to know if uv used marijuana or cocaine recently, most people are going to say no. So the statistics they use are basicly flawed. Anecdotally, i would say 50-60% of people i am in contact with have used drugs within the last 12 months. And i thinks thats LOW!1   ·  3 days ago

Chris LaChanceThe biggest road block, aside from opposing Politicians, to legal cannabis is that there aren’t enough activists campaigning to the justice department. Most smaller activists groups just spread awareness on Facebook and march with signs. Little to no groups actually have legal implication to channel their focus in the right direction like MPP does. We need it to be science based, strictly neutral fact base for our arguments aside from the common knowledge pseudo-scientific arguments we hear on the news today. Instead of "It’s just a plant" or "It’s safer than alcohol and tobacco" we need to reference US Patent 6630507 as it holds intellectual property involving cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants. That’s been held since 2003. Then we should have a solid structure of how legal cannabis should be regulated Country-Wide and whether or not we allow Pharmaceutical Companies to regulate, grow, trim, and sell it and if the ATF should then take over the helm of ATFC(AlcoholTobaccoFirearmsCannabis) But still allow the DEA authority to tackle illegal traffickers which will both denigrate the loss of cannabis enforcement funds, and also allow a regulated cannabis industry. It is tearing down an old system, but building a new one. As long as no jobs are lost because of it, our case for legal cannabis will be more welcomed from Authorities such as the DEA. They would rather go after big crime, and hard drugs rather than some guy selling pot and they have to shoot his pitbull in a raid. Under Sessions’ rule of law, we will most likely not see that happen. Nevertheless, over the years when the reefer-madness-educated geriatrics get out of politics/die off; the younger generations taking over can finally solve our prohibition against cannabis erroneous laws and practices.9   ·  3 days ago

Josh SheltonWe have been saying this shit for decades. Its not about people.. its about funding police forces. They have automatics, and riot gear.. and armored personnel carriers now.. our tax dollars and fines at work. All they need for all the toys is a steady stream of drug busts. (And anyone who thinks that they dont target black and brown skinned people more then they do white folks… you are simply lying to yourselves. (Or just retarded) lol2 days ago

Rob SchearerToo bad y’alls language for recreational marijuana for Michigan dies nothing for us residents and medical marijuana patients. That’s why it won’t pass. MPP will be the reason it doesn’t pass here not the reason it does.3 days ago

West Virginia is officially the 29th medical marijuana state! The news just broke that Gov. Jim Justice has signed SB 386, the West Virginia Medical Cannabis Act, into law. See MoreSee Less

Jesse OakesI want an open market, from industrial hemp to recreactional Cannibus, from foods to fuels, textiles to clothing. I want to grow it myself, outdoors with no Monsanto’s , I want less police searches and I want it off my drug tests so I can keep my job.78   ·  1 week ago

Steve DanielsThis could be another great case study to establish whether cannabis can alleviate whole communities stricken by opioid addiction.76   ·  1 week ago

Cathy ShrewsburyIt’s not what you think people. No you can not smoke it, no you can not grow your own, it’s highly regulated (look at what happened in Kentucky last week). It started out as a good bill, even a conservative bill. It was introduced by the Senate and passed the first time by the House of Delegates then John Shott added the Amendment that took away the all natural plant in exchange for pills, patches, lotions and vape pens that are within a certain limit of THC. We are not the 28th or 29th state for medical legalization, we are the 6 state to put it in the hands of the pharmaceutical industry. After what happened to poppies what do you think they will do to cannabis?21   ·  1 week ago

William ReidMy sympathy for all the cannabis advocates in West Virginia that worked their asses off to pass a WORKABLE cannabis law. We are involved with a very hostile conservative legislature in Montana who continues to impede our efforts to pass a workable law here. If it’s any consolation, the fact that you are on the record as being a marijuana state puts more pressure on congress to reschedule or remove marijuana from the drug schedule altogether. Hang in there. Our time is coming!6   ·  1 week ago

Roxie GreenSo, exactly what does this mean for a person that deals with chronic pain issues? What steps need to be taken to actually receive it? Such as, can a PCP refer you to the type of doctor, pharmacy, etc. to begin the process?3 days ago

George HargroveOklahoma needs too ! Be next. I didn’t get put on the meds I take till I stop smoking. Now have to anxiety and blood pressure meds. When I smoke it, I didn’t have to take medicine.1   ·  7 days ago

JP BakefoocNo thanks to mpp, you all @mpp didnt help for shit. It really was "the people" who stood up and demanded this, not some lobbyist throwing money at the politicians. If y’all would have been helpful, we might not have gotten screwed by the Shott amendment, but WV wasn’t worth your time because we were a lost cause, remember? Don’t take credit for someone else’s hard work, shit stain.5   ·  1 week ago

Michael UnderwoodThere’s no help for very many people. You can’t smoke it ,u can’t eat it,you can’t grow any for your wallets sake, not any thing like other states that have medical. In other states you can grow so many plants a year for your self.3   ·  7 days ago
