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.
