Federal Law Verses State Law and the medical use of Cannabis

Here’s a recording explaining my situation so far. After my surgery I hit my head and am now in the hospital. They’re refusing me access to medical cannabis.
Please take a listen and understand the problem here…
Federal Verses State law on cannabis use in hospitals

Surgery

I’ll be going under the knife again later this month to fix the concave bones around my right eye. I’ll be opened up from ear to ear and my scalp and forehead will be peeled away from my skull, they will slice a section of bone from the back of my skull as a bone graft. The graft will be cut into two pieces and place to support and expand my right orbital socket.
Old wires, screws and plates will be removed and if needed updated hardware will be inserted. I’ve requested to keep the extracted bits and plan on using them as a small project. The operation should take two and a half hours and I’ll need to stay in the hospital because I’ll have a drain. Yup, I’m going to have a drain in my skull, fuckin’ great, I almost called the surgery off right there. I’ll be screamin’ tears will be a streamin’ and pain will be a thing.
I’m actually really excited about this operation as it’ll fix a handful of minor pain points and hopefully allow my right eye to be more of a comfortable fit.

good Morning

Every morning I wake up to some amazing bird songs and calls, in away it’s like my own personal alarm clock. Instead of telling me to wake up though it usually means i need to go to bed and the birds are correct. The crows flock together which is heard throughout both recordings as they yell back and forth.

Enjoy

A voiced thought can lead to change

They say the world is too big for one person to change, that to me is a false statement! The single mind of one person is more powerful than a computer we just need to stop focusing on the fluff and sugar of culture and wake up to the real problems. In a time where everything is available at the touch of a finger or the range of a voice command we have departed from big physical gatherings. We now gather in the ever present digital world connecting together alone.
No one new that Hitler would change the world nor did they expect him to kill five million people. Not until after the reign of Hitler did the world changed battle tactics and the ideas around global warfare went under agreed restrictions. America took a more global stance on providing help to other nations and started acting like the global police force. A kid walks into a school and open fires killing fellow class mates and teachers, the nation divides while one side goes out and buys more guns and the competing side pushes for stricter laws on gun control. Middle men like gun manufacturers make money hand over fist and pay money to keep their product free flowing.
The war on drugs is a good example of changing the world, one man created the war on drugs for his own job security and funding from the government. The war on drugs targeted specific people of a certain color or social standing and put them in jail with no substantial proof or scientific evidence. Families are torn apart by the war on drugs to this day as young men are imprisoned for lengthy sentences inside privatized prisons backed by corporate investors. Each prisoner means three meals a day, beds, clothing, snacks, books, phone calls, stamps, letters and much more. The tax payers pay for all of this and the suppliers suck up the money and in return supply unhealthy products that just barely meet required standards set down by the government. In prison a can of soda costs $2.50 warm, a five minute phone call costs $20 after fees have been added on by the prison and the phone company.
Allow yourselves to gather together in physical form and allow yourselves to speak with a real voice, tell yourself and others your needs of this world. Listen to the others needs and make a plan to achieve to provide for these needs. Do not use fear and anger tactics to be heard, allow yourselves to be seen as a calm organization that plans and uses wit and talent to redirect the negative aggression into positive motion. Show the world the unshakable value of holding one’s self accountable with no fear of open evaluation or skepticism. Let them see you and I and let us show them how our ways build a better living arrangement with the earth and fellow species.
The world for now is what we’ve been granted, ragged scarred and blackened lands give way to disturbed ground mined for worthless components of society that have been assigned value by the powers of governance. Diamonds are valuable or so the hype would have you believe, people die for these gems of beauty but is it really worth the price of death? Diamonds became famous because a single company called De Beers made them a fashion accessory. A couple wasn’t a couple without a diamond ring and of course if you’re going to get the ring you need the matching earrings, necklace and bracelet. Soon diamonds were flying out of the ground and onto women’s bodies, jewelry and clothes. If you want to make something look rich and wealthy you add diamonds, things like diamond nail polish, gem encrusted phones, diamond ringed watches and so much more add to the inflated value of diamonds. A single person can build demand if they can control supply of an item, if that item is hard to manufacture or duplicate you will make bank.
Step up my fellow observers and organize together with me, you see the world on various levels but by now you have to notice the unbalance. Scientist claim we are entering the sixth mass extinction and very few people are worried about this horrifying period of time. We have become too confident and comfortable with our position as the dominating factor in the equation of life. Secret societies have been revealed as guides in the past but I call for an open society consisting of everyone to come together and create a life sustaining environment with equal rights to food and medical care.
One should not have to worry about money when one is deathly ill with cancer, you should not stay awake at night wondering if the chemicals in your dinner are slowly killing you. This way of existing will be unusual for some at first but once it becomes clear no one is harmed or kept under armed guard they will see the imprints of our footsteps leading them to our welcoming academics of living by demonstration.

Positive changes from Medical Cannabis

As time goes on and researchers dig deeper into the various compounds found in cannabis we’re seeing more and more people jumping on the health band wagon. Could this plant that’s been around for thousands of years really be a cure all for major illnesses?
In the following videos you’ll see stories of young children using cannabis to treat medical conditions, the cure is working. I’ve personally used cannabis to treat my chronic pain and to help fight against cancer and tumors that will come back according to my doctors.


Fighting cancer with cannabis, the great signs of change!

Abuse of Authority by Cops

Wearing a badge given to you by citizens doesn’t mean you can mistreat the people who gave you the power. Following the law and policing the world doesn’t mean you can abuse your authority.
The way these cops act is a violation of the human trust, not only that but they’re setting a bad example for all law enforcement. Protect and serve, I don’t see protecting or service being offered in this video.
Cops don’t like being recorded because it means they’ll be held accountable. It is not against the law to record in the public domain and cops do not have the right to take your belongings without putting you under arrest.
This article offers some good advice and perspective.

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.
