meridian idaho Mayor Tammy de Weerd cannabis marijuana liesMoms for Marijuana’s main focus is to bring education and awareness and to create honest discussion in our communities about the cannabis plant. In doing so, we are fighting decades of lies, fear and propaganda, propagated by our government and big industries that don’t care about anything other than their huge profits. Today we need your help in stopping some of this “Reefer Madness” from affecting our families.

Mayor Tammy de Weerd of Meridian Idaho has signed a $625,000 Executive Order to establish the Mayor’s Anti-Drug Coalition (MADC), which received its money from a Drug-Free Community Grant through the federal government. This coalition is, of course, against cannabis use and is spreading lies and misinformation throughout the community.

Reefer Madness by Executive Order? Can you imagine? Well that’s exactly what’s happening in Idaho. Mom’s needs YOU to spring into action to help stop the madness.

From Mayor de Weerd’s own blog:

“It is clear that Idaho is a target of pro-marijuana organizations; as communities we need to take a stand against this occurring […] In addition, we are asking the State Legislature and Governor to send a Joint Memorial to President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder requesting the federal government take appropriate action to enforce federal drug laws in all states and uphold international treaties relating to the control of illegal drugs in the world. When the time comes, I hope you will stand with us against efforts to legalize marijuana.”

Make sure you take a look closely at the pamphlets in the article. These pamphlets are being distributed to families IN THEIR WATER BILLS. Notice all the lies and misinformation in them? If you are a citizen of Meridian and get one of these pamphlets, grab a pen and write in all the TRUTH to dispute their lies and then take a big marker and write across them, “Educate yourself! Learn the truth! Stop spreading lies!” and mail them back directly to the mayor’s office. (info below)

Contact the office of Mayor Tammy de Weerd. Contact the people in charge of the “coalition.” Tell them you protest what they are doing and the misinformation they are spreading. Demand resources and proof for the things being said in this pamphlet. Tell them if they can’t provide it then they need to take it back. Be professional and calm, even if they are snooty, don’t get mad.

    Boycott Idaho. That state’s politicians are infested with reefer madness. Time to send a message.

  • ArthurJ

    Perhaps some sane person who speaks “Potato Head” could reason with them. Most jurisdictions have laws against using public utilities and other governmental entities using their mail to advance political adgenda. Perhaps some of this energy could be directed at Idaho’s several hate groups rather than folks who might otherwise go about their lives.

    “Joint Memorandum”? Really?!

  • Lindsey Rinehart

    Thank you!!

  • Votes

    Please, take every opportunity you get to VOTE for marijuana decriminalization or legalization. Make the effort, get registered, and CHANGE THESE LAWS.
    Just a friendly reminder from someone who is registered and intends to vote every chance I get.

  • OldWoman

    I can’t wait to get out of the State of Idaho. The most corrupt politicians in the nation and more Mormons per ca pita than any other state. Idaho will never have MMJ.
