This is The Weed Blog’s sixth Thanksgiving. It really blows my mind that we have been around that long. We are very thankful for all of the support over the years from our readers, and we are especially thankful for all the hardworking activists out there that are pounding the pavement, gathering signatures, lobbying elected officials, spreading awareness, and anything and everything else to support cannabis reform. Today I’m thankful for the people that did decades of legwork before my generation came into the reform movement.
I’m thankful for everyone that worked on the Measure 91 campaign to end marijuana prohibition in Oregon, making it to where I no longer have live in fear. I’m thankful for all of the cannabis POWs out there that are still locked up for marijuana offenses, even in states that have since reformed the marijuana laws that locked them up in the first place. We must, MUST not forget about them. I see all of these people walking around in suits benefiting from reform, and yet they don’t do anything to help those that are paying the price of prohibition. That’s unacceptable. So I’m also thankful for people like Adela Falk and 420POW.com that are writing letters and raising funds for marijuana POWs. Please check the site out, share the site with everyone you know and support their work.
We at The Weed Blog want to wish you and your families a happy Thanksgiving 2015. If it wasn’t for our fans, we wouldn’t be here today, and we are always appreciative of your support. I am truly humbled on a daily basis by how awesome people are in the emerging marijuana world, and I have to pinch myself often because of how lucky I have been to have a birdseye view of history being made, and to have made so many friends over the years via the blog that I would have never met otherwise since I rarely leave my comfortable rut that I have grown fond of in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.
Hopefully we are here for another six years. Onward friends! Legalize it!
