compassionate idaho chuck winder medical marijuanaI received some Facebook alerts and text messages and e-mails (and just about every other form of communication!) late last night about Idaho Senator Chuck Winder introducing a couple of pieces of legislation that would block Idaho from EVER getting medical marijuana. Clearly this is unacceptable. If you live in Idaho, it’s time to mobilize. If you don’t live in Idaho, it’s still worthwhile to call politicians, news agencies, and anyone else that will listen because this is total crap. Below is information from the Facebook page about what is going on:

What: PROTEST against Chuck Winder’s presentation of RS 21862 and 21872 to PERMANENTLY ban Marijuana in Idaho, regardless its application– meaning recreational, spiritual, or MEDICAL.THIS MOVED ON TO COMMITTEE. THEY WANT MORE COMMENTS. PLEASE COME TO THE COMMITTEE HEARING. THE EVENT WILL BE UPDATED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WITH THAT INFORMATION. PLEASE CONTACT THE SENATORS. THEIR CONTACT INFORMATION IS BELOW!

Where: Idaho State Capitol Building, Room WW55

Why: Our State Elected Officials are supposed to represent us, Idahoans, and make our wishes and demands know and attempt to see them effected. Chuck Winder has no business attempting to ban marijuana in Idaho, since a 2010 Clear Research Poll showed 74% of Idahoans polled to be supportive of medical marijuana legalization, and there is a healthy percentage of us who would see it legalized entirely.

Our neighbors in Washington have spoken up and made responsible marijuana possession legal, as did Colorado. Many cities across the nation have decriminalized marijuana possession and use, or made it ‘lowest priority’– HAILEY, IDAHO being one of them. With 18 states allowing medical marijuana, and multiple states preparing to introduce legislation to legalize it in the coming year, it is absolutely a step backward for Mr. Winder to introduce this bill.

If you’re tired of waiting for Idaho to catch up with modern medical scientific research that proves marijuana is less harmful than alcohol and a better medicine than most currently legal prescription medications, if you’re tired of being considered a criminal because you choose to use a plant, if you don’t want to see your children fighting the same battle we are now, SHOW UP tomorrow and SPEAK UP for your right to choose!! BRING A SIGN AND LET OUR REPRESENTATIVES KNOW THAT IDAHO SUPPORTS MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION!!!
