marijuana cannabis idaho threeI have a special place in my heart for marijuana reform activists in Idaho. One side of my family (maternal) is from Idaho, and I have hundreds of relatives that live there. I don’t visit very often. It’s not because I don’t like the view. Idaho is a very beautiful state. And it’s not because I don’t want to see my family, because I love them all very much. It’s because Idaho is a very, very scary place to be when you are a marijuana consumer. The laws there are harsh, and many law enforcement officials in Idaho absolutely love to enforce marijuana prohibition.

I won’t sugarcoat it – Idaho will not be an easy place to reform marijuana laws. This is a state that once passed a law to outlaw marijuana reform efforts. That’s right, Idaho somehow made marijuana even more illegal than it already was. But that’s why it’s so important to support reform efforts in Idaho. Even though it won’t be easy to legalize medical marijuana Idaho, doesn’t mean that it’s impossible. Far from it actually. Idaho voters just need to be educated more about the medical benefits of marijuana, and how using medical marijuana is much safer and healthier than pharmaceuticals. That’s not to say that people shouldn’t be able to use pharmaceuticals too if they choose, but they should absolutely have the option to use medical marijuana if they choose.

Below is a video that was recently released by the New Approach Idaho campaign. If you live in Idaho, share it with everyone you know. And if you are a reform funder or member of a reform organization, please help out this campaign. Idaho residents need to know that this is a real issue, and activists there need to know that there are people out there that care and want to help. You can learn more about the campaign at www.LegalizeIdaho.org and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/NewApproachIdaho:

    The urgency of the need to legalize Medical Marijuana nationally has just increased to be even stronger than it already was.
    There is mounting evidence that Medical Marijuana is especially effective against Cancers of Children, because of the way Childrens’ Immune systems work.
    The bottom line is that we need to get large scale double blind clinical trials of High Dose Medical Marijuana Oil (HDMMOT) going immediately.
    There’s very good reason to believe that the anecdotal evidence of its effectiveness is credible. The fact that patients are seeing the results they report makes enormous sense from a scientific standpoint given the underlying mechanisms by which HDMMOT fights Cancer — and Cancer Patients Can’t Wait.

      That’s awesome news, it makes defeating the medicinal cannabis haters all the more urgent, and it was already world class urgent. A lot of people are going to hate themselves in the morning, when they realize the twisted monster their hatred of recreational cannabis has turned them into, it turned them into people who would steal medicine out of the mouths of children.

      I read months ago that Israel, apparently the world leader in medicinal cannabis research, is doing research on MMJ’s effectiveness against cancer. Do you have any information on how those studies are progressing?

    I hope people will realize that they are teaching false propaganda about Cannabis, Dare is not teaching the children information based on facts they are going on what they believe to be true. Something should be done about this.

      The national DARE program removed cannabis from its curriculum a few years ago, but left the option for individual states to continue to include it (Idaho being one of the very few left who has chosen to keep it). Unfortunately.
