Rainbow Farm was located in Vandalia, Michigan & was a cannabis friendly community. They had great concerts & speakers. The government came in later & killed the owners & stole the farm from the legal birth right of the son, Robert, 1 week before 9-11 (September 3rd & 4th,2001). Tom Crosslin & Rollie Rolhm were the owners & each one of them were systematically gunned down & tortured after being out numbered 300 to 1. In order to stop a memorial day concert, that was to start a signature campaign to legalize cannabis in the state of Michigan.
The Country as a whole has come a long way since the incident above in 2001, but it still has a very long way to go. We have 11 “legalized States” and 33 “medicinal States” to date according to NORML. More than the majority of Americans believe it should be made “lawful”. Many sick people including children are suffering needlessly and we have the ability to help rectify the situation.
We should not still have to be going to the Capital in Frankfort to beg for something that we should have had in Kentucky more than seven years ago. In fact, it never should have been “unlawful” to possess in the first place.
Gatewood Galbraith, “The greatest Governor that Kentucky never had”, spoke to this issue many times and had he been elected we would not still be in this same fight today. He said, “You have got to get political. Because if you don’t get political then I’m gonna die in the streets!”
The number of people who are dying in the streets has exponentially increased in the past 5+ years in earnest. The crisis was started by the Government and their Pharmaceutical cronies who promoted highly addictive opioid drugs for daily use to patients who were suffering and they bit the bait. After everyone was sufficiently addicted to the pharmaceuticals the Government claimed an “opioid crisis” and immediately withdrew these needed medications by way of intimidating the Physicians and forced drug testing to the point that the Medical Establishment could no longer take the chance of losing their Practice’s, and so they immediately withdrew needed medicines from Patients who legitimately needed them, as well as other’s who had become addicted for other reasons – and there are many reasons… This in turn caused people to literally die in the streets due to a dire need to medicate and the ample supply in the streets of much more potent and deadly drugs than what the Physicians had been prescribing them to begin with.
Some of us were strong enough and smart enough to turn to Cannabis which saved our lives, even though it is illegal. A lot of us have lost close friends and family members to this ‘war on drugs’. Many of us grieve daily because of it.
There have been Senators, Representatives and Citizen Activists, working hard to see Cannabis regulation and lawfulness is passed in the very State that in WWII the Government pleaded with people to grow Hemp for their War efforts. The people responded to their requests in a time of need. However, the Government turns their heads the other way when the Citizens request that they help them establish a safe and lawful way to use Cannabis, medically and otherwise. Not only would this help the multitudes of patients who direly need this medication, it would also establish a lawful product that can be taxed and used for the greater good of the State we reside in, including new businesses and employment. As a result, even those who chose not to partake in Cannabis would benefit from the legalization and taxation of the product – much like alcohol – with much less lawlessness than alcohol promotes…
It would establish a lawful alternative to Alcohol and Tobacco and other illicit drugs, such as street level opioids which are destroying families and responsible for unending deaths even as we speak. Yet, to date, our Kentucky Government has refused to act upon this issue.
Why has Kentucky Government taken such a path in governing of the people?
For a more in-depth read on why and how our Country has fell into the hands of the NWO you can view this LINK. “The Elkhorn Manifesto” is an archived page of the Kentucky Marijuana Party, written in 1996 by R. William Davis, and collaborated with Gatewood Galbraith.
Here we are, once again, in the year of Our Lord, 2019, begging for our leaders to hear our plea’s. And once again, they will try to ignore us!
As far as I am concerned, the lawfulness of Cannabis should first have been rightfully returned to the people through REPEAL of Federal Treaties and Statutes which made it unlawful to begin with. Possibly as far back as the 1914 Harrison Narcotics Tax Act. However, the situation has been taken into the hands of the individual States and their “States Rights” because the Federal Government refused to stand up for the rights of our people. Instead they have enlisted a “New World Order” to do their dirty work which seeks to contain society at large – world wide control of the masses, control of all plants, food, medicines, WATER, etc., to be placed under strict guidelines to which we must abide by the rules or suffer the consequences.
We have become damned if we do submit to the law and damned if we do not follow it as well.
There is research already out there and patients are being helped and in some cases literally saved from an early death by using Cannabis. Many people have been saved from addiction by using Cannabis.
We cannot wait another year to change the Cannabis Statutes in Kentucky. We need it now. We needed it 20 years ago.
There are currently two Bills in Kentucky Legislature – one in Senate and one in the House. Both bills should be passed and this is my reasoning for this:
SB 80 / Dan Malano Seum / Establishes the “Department of Cannabis Control” which will oversee lawful consumption of Cannabis in Kentucky by adults 21 and over. This Bill gives limited and controlled freedom back to the people in that it does allow for growing on our own property and consumption as well as sets the stage for business to be lawful throughout Kentucky. This legislation could be enacted fairly quickly and jumpstart the economy here. It is imperative that we implement this legislation this year if we seek to make our State livable again.
HB 136 / Establishes a very strict “Medical Cannabis” bill for bonified Patients. Because of the nature of illnesses and the fact that many Children could be served by this Bill it is imperative that “medicinal Cannabis” be made available in Kentucky to those who are in need, medically, whether they be adult or child. Many people who are not familiar with Cannabis and it’s use would serve to be protected as patients by this medical legislation. The problem is that with the measures necessary to comply with the Bill as it is written it would most certainly be a slow process to set up across the State and reach all patients equally. However, we should proceed immediately on this Act as well.
Additionally, a drug-free workplace Bill for the use of legal Hemp CBD products, currently sold on the open market:
SB 83 / Perry B. Clark “Shauna’s Law” Relating to a drug free workplace / Seeks to mandate an appeals process for those employer’s who enforce drug-testing upon their employee’s which will address those persons who have been found in violation of the drug-free workplace policy by testing positive on random drug screens for legal Hemp products such as CBD. It would set aside that violation if proven that a legal product had been used. This Bill must be passed in order to preserve the integrity of the Hemp market as well as employee’s rights.
IF our Legislator’s and Governor do not seek to enact the Bill’s which we as a People have requested for our health and well-being in general, then the political system of the Commonwealth of Kentucky needs to be immediately and completely changed and replaced. This would also include other issues of great importance in Kentucky such as the Pension Crisis.
The corruption in Kentucky runs far and wide and seeks to be ended this year. The time is now for change…not later. We cannot wait another year to be lawful!
