THAT Prohibition destroys communities, supports cartels, violence, and corruption, and there is no honor in upholding it.
THAT Cannabis is essential to good health and endogenous cannabinoids are in mothers milk for a good reason.
AND THAT testing for cannabinoids for DUI is unscientific and inappropriate.
INVITATION TO Governor Charlie Baker, Mayor Marty Walsh, Speaker Robert DeLeo, Attorney General Maura Healey, and all the Senators who went to Colorado and could not see what was before their very eyes.
WE WILL PRESENT THE SCIENCE: In an open to the public Education Village held at the New England Cannabis Convention, April 22 & 23 at the Hynes, at Extravaganja April 29 in Northampton, maybe even in the State House itself at a Seminar Day, and at the Boston Freedom Rally on the Boston Common, September 15, 16, & 17. There will be a well-thought out curriculum of classes in 8 areas of concern, to educate our legislators why prohibition is a failure and why cannabis is worthy of respect.
