west virginia medical marijuana rallyI saw the following event on Facebook. If you are in West Virginia, you should definitely come out and support the cause:

Sign the petition!
https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/support-our-troops-west-virginia-veterans-for-medical-cannabis

We are uniting at the West Virginia State Capitol Building on Tuesday, January 26th, 2016 to call on our state legislators to act now to allow VA medical centers in our state to recommend medical cannabis to WV veterans.

The United States Senate passed a funding bill in November, ending the prohibition of medical cannabis at VA clinics. The 2016 Appropriations Bill permits Veterans Administration doctors to recommend marijuana to their patients in states where medical cannabis is legal. The problem is, West Virginia is not one of those states. We will gather at the capitol and demand the WV Legislature grant equal access to veterans in our state.

West Virginia veterans face a wide range of ailments as a result of their service to our country. As many as 20% of veterans suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress or Post-Traumatic Brain Injury. Another 54% experience varying degrees of insomnia. Many veterans experience chronic pain. Worst of all, an average of 22 veterans commit suicide every day. Veterans are typically prescribed a wide range of prescription drugs to treat these illnesses, each of which carries risks and a long list of potential symptoms. Studies have shown cannabis to be an effective and less dangerous substitute to provide needed relief for all of these health problems without adverse side effects.

Veterans make up over 167,000 of the state population, or over 9%! It is time for West Virginians to stand up for our veterans.

We are taking a three-pronged approach to attack this issue. We are going to petition the WV Legislature; we are going to write letters to our state representatives and the leadership; and we are going to hand deliver both of these during a protest at the WV State Capitol Building on Tuesday, January 26th 2016 at 1000 hours while the legislature is in session. Sign up to attend the protest on this event page.

We also ask that you take a minute to send a short letter to your state representative using this easy tool:

    These guys give their lives and quality of their lives for our freedoms!!! The least we can do is get them an effective means of medicine that’s NATURAL and SAFE!!! Not only do the veterans need mmj but the state’s suffering patients need fast relief but we’ve passed down mmj five yrs in a row now. Hopefully, change is coming soon, until then we remain criminals!!!

      The vast majority of what the US military industrial complex is up to nowadays and has been for many generations has NOTHING whatsoever to do with preserving or expanding Liberty in America and the world nor represents virtuous righteous defense of our nation and way of life.

      So called “veterans” are not special if not completely undeserving of such praise as heroes for liberty at all. The whole “join the military or police and become an automatic hero” stuff is total bullshit and merely government
      propaganda to get mindless grunts to join their ranks as no one who isn’t stupid or very naive and ignorant believe such obvious crap. Just because they rationalize their obviously immoral behavior by screaming about righteousness and Liberty while hypocritically the military attacks and ravages back into the stone age whole countries killing millions in wars that have nothing to do with Liberty or our national security. I’ve got to wonder if you ‘veterans’ haven’t earned that PTSD.

      The day that any country, terrorist, or domestic threat wishes to attack our country I would be among the first to respond in defense of America to the death. That being said, being a ‘veteran’ of places like Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, or Panama doesn’t automatically make you a patriot or a moral person. likely it means the opposite. Speaking of Vietnam and other wars didn’t they DRAFT into those? YES! What they don’t tell you is that MANY thousands because of virtue refused to participate in such unlawful and evil things. Oh, you were probably just now thinking in defense of the Draft I bet but perhaps you as a soldier forgot your oath to protect the Supreme Law of our Land the Constitution which clearly states there is never to be ANY Involuntary Servitude!! Draft=involuntary servitude not a righteous volunteer military.
      The United States has been in a state of war domestically and internationally since WWII and most of the time they don’t declare War since they are still illegally operating under emergency powers and Martial Law and have been since WWII. Only the sheep don’t know it. That is why the fools worship the president and think he can make law with executive orders because they are all so stupid and ignorant of the true Law in the constitution and don’t realize that the executive doesn’t make law! unless its King George or whatever other scumbag dictator.

      This country has been progressively spiraling out of control into Socialism/Communism/Totalitarianism ever since WWII and especially ever since 9-11-2001 when the illuminati and their pawns in our government staged another False Flag terror attack in NYC bringing down the twin towers in a controlled demolition. Ever since 9-11 the Feds especially have done nothing but attack, subvert, and destroy our liberties. Even on this site and comments forum we are discussing Prohibition of drugs which of course is the anti-thesis of drug liberty. This country is not at liberty as it was or should be. Your fawning over that kind of bullshit mindless flag waving crap makes me want to puke.

      Furthermore, as proof that those who make the poor choice of going off to murder and risk life and limb in shady unjustified foreign entanglements called ‘veterans’ are not special I cite the 2nd Amendment which explicitly defines The People of America as the “militia”. The Ohio and other State constitutions explicitly dictate and require by virtue of merely being and American citizen and Patriot that ALL able bodied persons of ages 17 to 67 are automatically members of the “unorganized militia” as opposed to the “organized militia” which is the National Guard. This is also further confirmed by current federal Code in US Code Chapter 10 Section 311 “Militia: Composition and classes”.

      WE the People of America ARE the government! We may arrest anyone for felonious crimes. We are by RIGHT entitled to every Arm and munition available to professional soldiers and preserving Liberty forever is WHY by necessity of vesting the real Politik power of government in the civil powers and the hands of the People via the right to Keep and Bear Arms.

      Finally those ‘veteran’ soldiers are marching for a cause worth fighting for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        You’re pathetic, and most likely a sideline stander and sign carrier while we made it safe for you to do so–you’re welcome!!!

        • Closet Warrior

          Thank You for your service bro!!! That pro legal guy knows everything, and you know what they say about that…you will never strive to learn because you already know, ha! Dude, I had this guy reply to one of my posts that was factual, I’m not gonna throw anything out there for the world to see if I don’t know my shit and fact check. Long story short, this guy will never leave you alone because he’s trying to generate conflict on these forums to get Donald Trump fans to watch his lame ass you tube channel. Sorry I wrote you a book but your post caught my eye. I know ” thanks” could never be enough for what you’ve seen and had to go through and don’t know your story but anybody that runs towards gunfire to help someone instead of running away has my respect. Keep our head up man, the world is thankful their’s just a few knuckleheads out there who don’t live in reality. Happy New Year’s bro!!!

          • Denny

            I genuinely appreciate your thoughtful comments, and your support during those military days in the past as well as today for vets is meaningful to us.
            Wishing you a safe, pleasantly enjoyable and Happy New Year!

          Pathetic! HA! Fight for my Rights and our country as well! I guard well my Rights fool! Sideliner! lol!
          I make it safe for me! I mean what I say.
          I noticed you’ve refuted nothing I’ve said just like all the other idiots on here NEVER do! moron!
          rave all you like I will remain totally un-refuted until you grow a brain!

          • Denny

            You obviously wouldn’t recognize a valid statement when you read one, and having a closed mind helps keep you painted into that little corner and on the defensive.
            The folks who are yet to get on board with the potential medical uses for cannabis while reading your comments aren’t likely to become effectively educated/informed, merely insulted and disrespected. I hope you aren’t trying to make a living selling anything…

      • exbioman

        Government decides where and when to send troops. Why are you even commenting if you are ANTI-veteran?

    I Smell Bacon!!! bj

  • Closet Warrior

    Damn pro legal, I just basically said Veterans that are patients should be able to obtain mmj and they shouldn’t be shamed for it like you do everybody!!! Everyone please read this guys post. He puts words in people’s mouths with little to no information about them because he generalises everything then breaks it down into little pieces so he can beat up, badmouth and belittle everyone’s ideas, beliefs or even just a goofy fun post!!! He has to make everything an argument, wait that would involve conversations so I guess he basically just rants about what he “thinks” is right. Hey pro legal, if I was your mom I would have told your daddy to roll over and shoot you out the window, seriously!!!

  • exbioman

    I disagree with your views of veterans. And you lost my respect. Cheney/Bush sent the US to Iraq to become richer making money on the price of crude oil. Facted by an ex-Republican who sat at the dinner table with them. Whatever your beliefs on the New World Order, Your dissing veterans is uncalled for.

    • Closet Warrior

      This guy’s an agitator and no matter the topic or position- he’s gotta be right and we don’t know shit we’re all scum and he’s king. I think he’s delusional and insecure because he’s so abrasive and obviously harbors a deep seeded hatred towards authority and lack of humility.

  • exbioman

    Go sell timeshares.

    • Closet Warrior

      Good one lol

  • Closet Warrior

    You’re a low-life, discriminatory self-serving, egotistical, little man who argues w/everyone! You try n put words in others mouths often misrepresenting their thoughts/beliefs. You may be a little educated but you have no common sense- affluenza tree guy

  • Denny

    Good luck with your ongoing rants and paranoia, you’re gonna need it.

  • Closet Warrior

    See, your lack of common sense is biting you in the ass as we speak. Losing respect and fans for your you tube channel by self-promoting assholery!!! Oh, btw, supporting a war and supporting our Veterans who get sucked into wars during non-peacetime is two completely different animals altogether! You discern nothing unless it supports your bullying behavior. Which in fact is disgusting the way you rip into veterans, etc..I will always support our troops no matter the conflict or where because these guys are just following orders like you would at your job, the soldier is merely a tool who follows a chain of command not an evil idea or some crazy conspiracy theory like the ones you make up in your head. Shame on those who bully and belittle. You have a bad case of little man’s disease and should keep that bullshit rhetoric you call conversation to yourself cus nobody wants to hear it anymore anyways. In fac, they never did!!! Veteran Basher Everbody! How unpatriotic is that? You call yourself a freedom fighters…you are so self conflicted and slow I bet it take you 2 hours to watch 60 minutes!!!

  • Closet Warrior

    Lying Jerk? I was simply making a comment on Veterans and their medical choices or lack thereof and thanking a Veteran for his services to our country and you come up w/these conspiracy theories and uncompassionate remarks about your UN-sentimental ways. Your tongue is your worst enemy, you can’t express your true feelings for fear of showing your true self; scaly w/a forked tongue!!!

  • Closet Warrior

    You really show your true self by slamming everything and everybody and you do it so regularly that you lose sight of what or who you’re ranting about. For two days you been hammering this forum about “retarded soldiers” your words not mine. The fucked up thing is that you like the sound of your own voice so much that you didn’t bother to ask if I was in the military, you just assumed it because I gave a Veteran a compliment and now I’m a murderous bastard and a moron!!! Supposedly, all military, police and anyone who doesn’t have your fucked up way of rationalizing like your holiness!! Lol I don’t care for war and violence and a lot of things you say I do because you really take the time to read and understand your fellow bloggers cus your so warm and caring. I’ve seen a few of your you tube flops out of curiosity and boredom and I have to say” Wow”!!! I’m starting to think someone besides you writes these scandalous blogs because the language is much more intelligent than your um, ugh, yep a yep you tube catastrophe. The language on the you tube channel is slow witted and unsure of itself but when you get the chance to criticize someone your iq seems to go up, could it be that dictionary you’re holding onto so tight digging out words and phrases to better attack your fellow blogger and show that you’re a man of integrity and intelligence, Please!!! Like I’ve said before, leave me alone you social pervert- at least get your facts straight before you attack someone and make yourself look like the true asshole you strive to be. Good job! I’m sure you lost a few viewers after your anti-troop support ranting. Again, good job!

  • Closet Warrior

    311 views!!! Look out he’s taking over the world. As I have stated: Your snappy, quick -witted put downs seem a bit more complicated than the language used on the you tube channel. Almost like someone else is writing them. You seem lethargic and lack enthusiasm on your show but are quick to condemn someone on these forums. Look at me everybody, I have a boring ass you tube channel and I am a bully troll on sensible forums but I like to “act” sensible on my show. Everybody who isn’t a peace hating veteran is welcome to watch and learn lol

  • Closet Warrior

    Nobody reads 4 page long rants so I guess you’re talking to yourself, secondly, you only think you’re stomping us in these forums because you’re the only one who thinks it’s a contest!!! It’s supposed to be for conversation not blasting anyone who has a different opinion than you. In short, you are wasting all our time!!! You could be helping someone learn something but you’d rather bark orders at someone and toss a few expletives their way. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar.

  • Closet Warrior

    I’m sorry, I meant nobody reads your 4 page rants!!!! Well, we’ll wait and see what your master plan is, meanwhile, you could be a little kinder. For the third time now man, I don’t believe in war either but I still support our troops because they’re Americans and we don’t know their reasons for joining so we shouldn’t judge but I’m sure you have something bad to say and I wish I never replied to your post one lonely day but I did now you wanna haunt me boo! Have a nice day! Please leave me alone and I’ll do the same. You won as you put it, you know everything. I’m just a fascist moron war lover!!! You win

  • Closet Warrior

    Obviously I can read and I’m not falling into your trap so I’ll back off. What you’re doing w/your you tube channel is productive while telling everyone on this site that they’re morons is counterproductive. I’ve just been trying to get you to relax a little w/the name calling and hate vibe. All billshit aside- do you feel a moral responsibility to bring kindness w/knowledge or is their no room for compassion in leaning?
