April 20 is a special day for many members of the Massachusetts Cannabis Reform Coalition. It is why Dan Gervais begins his War On Lies Walk from the Harborwalk near the John Joseph Moakley Courthouse at 11:00 a.m. It is why at 4:20 p.m. there are likely to be acts of civil disobedience on the State House steps in Boston in protest of Beacon Hill’s failure to enact a workable medical marijuana law and in Concord, NH at 4:20 p.m. in protest of New Hampshire’s politicians also failing to listen to reason.
There is another “tea party” movement, not lead by Sarah Palin, but one to which she is invited. This other “tea party movement” is older. It applies to the members of the coalition, their increasing politicization and frustration with politicians on Beacon Hill and in Concord who refuse to find a way to join Maine and Rhode Island in allowing some to consume it as medicine.
For residents of the Connecticut River Valley, 420 came early. They demonstrated for change this past Saturday at the U-Mass Cannabis Reform Coalition’s “Extravaganja. There, before a gathering of thousands of mostly college age voters, Green-Party Candidate for Governor, Jill Stein, declared, “Massachusetts needs to join the fourteen other states that allow patients to use marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation.”
Mass Cann also takes pleasure that on the afternoon of April 20 we will unveil our Boston Freedom Rally website for the 21st Annual Boston Freedom Rally, to be held on Saturday, September 18, 2010.
