Maureen Dowd Lies About Cannabis Infused Food

I just saw this article on Reason called Getting High With Willie Nelson Does Not Clarify Maureen Dowd's Understanding of Colorado's Marijuana Regulations

Maureen Dowd claims that she had an 8 hour long bad experience after consuming cannabis infused food in Colorado.

The Reason Article points out that in order to have a bad experience Maureen would have had to ignore warnings that Colorado requires on the label.

Marijuana is safer than alcohol, and fake news stories.

Maureen may even be lying in her news articles in exchange for money from various anti-pot groups that could be benefiting from fascism or partnerships where for profit entities benefit from excessive rules and regulations imposed by government agencies (Private Prisons, kids for cash, corrupt judges, insider trading etc.)

I hope people realize that marijuana in food does not cause the problems these scare mongers are trying to highlight.

Be sure to tell your friends that consuming a massive amount of cannabis infused food can cause pretty intense feelings, you will eventually fall asleep, and when you wake up you may still be a little tired.

Marijuana is safer.

Marie Farmer and Safer Shirts and We Remember Peter

I really appreciate when people wear Safer Shirts.

I also really like Peter McWilliams and Peter's Page.

Peter McWilliams was an American self-help author who advocated for the legalization of marijuana.

More info on Peter Here.

I really appreciate the work that people at Peter's Page have done and continue to do to keep Peter's memory alive.

Here you can see a picture of my friend Marie Farmer from Facebook wearing her Safer Shirt, with comments from people from Peter's Page underneath.

Thanks Marie Farmer!

Marijuana or beer after work? Which one gets you fired?

I posted a link to Camping Mike from Spokane speaking to the news about how difficult it is to get a job since he has been on the front of the newspaper demanding attention be paid to the injustice of marijuana prohibition, specifically by directing focus to an irrefutable fact, that marijuana is safer than alcohol.

Public policy should reflect this, public sentiment should reflect this.

If a person is allowed to have a one beer every night after work and tell their boss the next day without fear, a person should certainly be allowed to have a joint every night and tell their boss about it the next day without fear.

This is not the case though. We still have to help people change their mind by presenting them with the facts.

There are some great comments under the link when I shared it on Safer Shirts Facebook.

Here is an example:

Benjamin Hall I worked for a place once, a metal shop that made highly technical parts, some for the military. I was one of the most prolific and productive workers at this plant. Top notch! They had to do a mandatory piss test for the Military Contract. I told them that I wouldn't be able to pass that test as I use cannabis. They had to fire me. They also lost that contract as they were not able to produce as many parts as they had while I was working there. This employer wanted desperately to keep me on the payroll as I made them a good profit and I was highly proficient at what I did. I lost a good job, they lost a good worker and the military had to look for another company (over seas) to make their product. No one won anything, every one lost. Now is that good business? Is that profitable, equitable, fair?

Thank you to Camping Mike, and KREM 2 News from Spokane for being an activist and covering this story.

Thanks again Camping Mike. Safer Spokane!

Kevin Oliver Spokane WA NORML

Here is a post from a friend of mine on Facebook named Kevin Oliver.

He is a member of Washington NORML active in Eastern Washington.
Which is good because a lot of the city councilmembers in eastern WA are stuck in the stone age when it comes to marijuana and a number of other personal freedom issues.

Thank you Kevin for all you have done for cannabis activism over the years.

I remember trying to arrange signature gathering events with you during 1068 and 1149 but various things got in the way, car trouble, work schedule conflict, etc.

We disagreed on 502, I felt some of the compromises like 5 ng/ml DUID and $1,000 dollar lottery tickets for growing rights were not a good way to do legalization, but I have tried to maintain a relationship because one thing I've learned from doing grassroots activism is you have to set aside your differences because we are much more effective when we collaborate.

Anti-marijuana people work together to accomplish their evil goals, pro-cannabis folks need to work together to accomplish their good goals.

Kevin Oliver has been pushing for a change in marijuana laws for a long time and for that I am grateful.

For anyone who believes $1,000 for a lottery ticket to grow marijuana is not the right way to do legalization, check out Real Legalization and read their petition 648 which would allow every adult to grow up to 15 plants with no Tax, Fee, License, Permit, or Registry.

Thanks again

  • Michael Wilson I once upon a time tried to raise the issues related to juveniles with Kevin and he decided to ignore me which became the major reason I dropped out of the Norml group in Olympia.
  • Jared Allaway Michael Wilson rocks.
  • LordDennis Ford Michael, Eastern Washington NORML disbanded because we couldn't ever get Kevin or anyone else from WA NORML to do anything or answer a phone even. There were other reasons, but unfortunately WA NORML is incredibly ineffective and out of touch. I mean, we were told we couldn't do anything without permission, and we couldn't get permission for anything lol. Oh well.

Original Safer Shirt Gregg

Safer Shirts have been around for a long time.

With the use of stencils these shirts can be made and distributed to neighbors who agree.

When groups of people all wear the shirt to high traffic events fence sitters have to at least think about the possibility that this statement is true.

One doesn't need to dig deep in the available data to find evidence indicating that marijuana is safer than alcohol. 

Don't let the anti-pot people push us around!

You are not alone!

Together we can build an army of truth-tellers who can collaborate, and accomplish great things.

Thank you Gregg for being one of the original Safer Shirt wearers!

Safer Dave at it again

Dave Wisniewski from Safer Arizona is getting the word out Everywhere, I mean everywhere.

Even the rabbits and rattlesnakes in the Arizona desert are seeing this message on their way to work at the factory.

Thank you Safer Dave for all that you are doing in Arizona! We will get it legal everywhere with the help of people like Safer Dave! :)

Thank you!

New Map Button now has a Map button to help people find safer shirts and people who make/wear/like safer shirts.

Please tell your friends to check out and look at the map button

There are a couple things you can do with the map button at this point. 

You can either look for businesses that have Safer Shirts available for purchase, or you can find Facebook groups filled with people from your county who like t-shirts that say "marijuana is safer than alcohol".

Tell your friends about and the Map button

Thank you.
