obama finger in earsStop Federal Attacks On Cannabis Patients

My name is Mary Elizabeth Davis.

I am a retired licensed vocational nurse with severe osteoarthritis and need to have both my knees replaced. All the pharmaceutical medications I have been prescribed have caused side effects including: additional pain, vision problems, nausea and blood clots.

My doctor eventually recommended I try medical cannabis, and I found Berkeley Patients Group, a not-for-profit medical cannabis collective, that has successfully treated me where pharmaceuticals failed.

On May 1st, after operating for over 12 years without incident and with full local support, the Federal Government forced Berkeley Patients Group to close its doors by threatening its landlord with property forfeiture and decades in prison.

Today I am speaking not only for myself, but in the name of millions of patients, here in the United States, who like me, have been denied access to medical cannabis and been thrown to the street with no alternative.

President Obama promised at the beginning of his administration to respect state medical marijuana laws. He has broken this promise time and time again — and the consequences have been devastating.

Tell President Obama and the Justice Department: enough is enough. Keep your campaign promise, and stop the attacks on medical cannabis patients!

  1. Governor O’Malley of Maryland has promised to VETO the medical marijuana bill. Delegate to Annapolis, MD. Quoted to me that his wife has cancer and she doesn’t need medical marijuana. Really! Why eve do you want her to be a hero now? My husband has advanced progressive Ms and needs a Delegate and Governor who listens to the people who voted them in. First it was Woodberry Woods Governor now this.

  2. I would like to point out that 
    President Obama betrayed our medical cannabis community and his word. How is the time for the truth. Over 50% of the voters want medical cannabis but if you need money we suck up to the community with money and fly the civil right flag. At same time incarcerating the sick

  3.  Follow us on face book and see our brand new page at OKLAHOMA MARIJUANA

  4. Mary Davis—-Please be patient !      Every issue out there, is thought to be the most important by the people affected by it.    Finally, Obama moved Gay Marriage to the top .      I have absolutely NO doubt, that when he gets a 2nd term, he will give us the Hope and Change he promised back in 2008.      But he has to do it on his own time frame, and move things up when he can.    
    This is a very serious issue to you, but you also have to admit it is a complicated one, where people will be trying to use this law, for their own personal use.      
    I implore you to just make sure he gets re-elected, and we will make sure it gets done.
