Discrimination against medical cannabis users at EverGreen

Since 1967 the Evergreen College in Olympia Washington has been known for one of the most liberal schools in the United States. There’s a common stereotypical thought that Evergreen is a big school for cannabis users.
During my orientation today I found out that this couldn’t be further from the truth, the administration said cannabis is not allowed on campus. This isn’t a big surprise but what caught me off guard was the next statement.
“Even if you have a green card aka a doctor’s authorization cannabis is not allowed on campus, you may not smoke cannabis in the designated smoking areas. If you draw attention to yourself that you use cannabis, attention will find you…”
Smoke your cigarettes and pollute the air by spreading cancer through second hand smoke no problem but smoke cannabis to help with pain, ADD, ADHD, anxiety or treat cancer and you’ll be given a citation and possible expulsion from Evergreen!
Research is proving that cannabis is healthier than cigarettes. Cannabis smoke does not impair long function permanently and does not cause cancer. Yet you can go smoke a cigarette which has been directly linked to lung cancer and throat cancer
One of the reasons Evergreen is against cannabis patients is because the school receives federal grants and cannabis is still illegal on the federal level. However while the feds outlawed cannabis the citizens of Washington voted and legalized cannabis for medical and recreational use.
I think the fact my doctor wrote an authorization for cannabis should overrule any outcry from the school. After all what’s the difference if I take hard opiates and show up to class all drugged up.
If you’re saying cannabis isn’t allowed you should probably get rid of Tylenol, Excedrin and Advil. Oh wait you won’t because it’s legal on the federal level, I’m not asking Evergreen to stand against the feds. That’s my job as a citizen to speak out against a corrupt and unjust group of agencies and politicians.
What I am asking Evergreen to consider is to stand strong with the backing of its unique history and its popularity among young adults to help all students with medical cannabis requirements. I would not attend a school that told me I couldn’t take medicine to heal myself.
What are the students living on campus supposed to do if they can’t medicate with cannabis if they have an authorization for cannabis from their doctor? How do you think they feel, being told to sacrifice health for education and to be given a feeling of constant stress. The stress can’t be good for the ability to learn. How in fact does a college have the legal ability to determine what is and what isn’t a medication?
The argument is this, as a medical cannabis patient and advocate I find it unjust that a school can dictate whether or not my authorization from my doctor is legit and can punish me for using medicine.

Annoying Conversationalists

Annoying Conversationalists
As we meet new friends and interact with the world in general we come across people who have very little awareness for their social interactions. Let’s focus just on people holding a conversation.
The repeater, this group of people will tell you a story and its usually a good story. You enjoy the story but the next fifteen times you hear it you’ll hate yourself. Soon you start hating the person who keeps telling you all the same stories because they talk so much they forget who they tell what to who.
The uhms, you’re sentence shouldn’t be made up of 95% uhm. Uhm, I uhm, was uhm, walking uhm, to the store uhm, uhm, uhm, I uhm, saw a dog uhm, uhm Yeah.
The boomerang, the worst of the worst! You can talk about anything and no matter what a boomerang will turn the conversation back on to themselves and their problems. They’ll even ask leading questions to guide the topic back to a relatable one about themselves.
These three types are the most annoying people in my opinion to talk with!

Cartoon Town!

I enjoy cartoons and really dig the cool theme songs. Check these out!
Futurama is one of the shows that is morbid in the right way.

This guy knows all of his cartoons! He sits down and plays guitar for 10 minutes and rocks out some of the old school shows.

Family Guy is by far one of my all-time favorites.
