I have been thinking about our group meets and the usual, regular attendees we all know, at least on site at our meets. Our own “members” which we have all medicated with at one meet or another somewhere, and we know they are a part of
our core which we have to have to continue forward with our cause. These people are the glue that helps bind our cause together with so many like-minded folks staying in for the long run against the governments’ intrusion into our lives.
“These” are the medical marijuana card holding patients that ‘will’ stand up for our group under hard circumstances from the current onslaught from our own government. Most others will just hide in their corners!
I pose a personal simple question regarding “Donations”.
Why are there no cost reimbursement discounts from our Caregiver members for our Medical Marijuana Patient cardholder “core” group? “Maybe” this has not been thought about yet, or, maybe it has been and then just file 13-d… I surely hope the
latter is not the case.
I do understand that the donations are critical for everyone to proceed forward with their own projects and prosper. “I” believe we should all take this under consideration as well as the mmj core group receiving discounts on donations from our
Caregivers so our Caregivers can continue giving us care. Discount is not a giveaway by the way. It’s only for our Medical Marijuana Patient core members with ‘limited’ income. Prove-able limited income.
There are disabled folks with “fixed incomes” they receive from the government for survival. These people are not “capable” of donating the usual donations because they simply do not have the money.
And, yes, “I” am one of those disabled people and that is one of the reasons I am writing this to our members. There have been several times my wife, Marita, and I have had to miss out on coming together with, actually the only group of folks which
we can openly communicate with and enjoy each other’s company, if just for an hour or two.
Then, we show up at the meets without anything of substance to offer anyone else, or, we have been ‘without’ for two or three weeks between Disability checks and have zero to offer in return.
I feel like a mooch when “I” can’t also donate to my friends which are freely and openly donating to me and my wife. When we do have some meds donated we ‘usually’ can get a couple of grams and we have to make it last. We are not used to living
on the $1,116.00 a month from my Social Security Disability check. Hell, I was a member of the International Union of Operating Engineers for over 26 years and I don’t receive anything from my old local in Oklahoma City. That’s alright though because
I figured that when I joined the Operator’s Union. Not their fault at all, it was my choice to join. I recommend the Operating Engineer’s Union to anyone because they are “professional” heavy equipment operators and the pay is excellent!
Since my visit in 2005 to Barrow Neurological at St Joseph’s for brain surgery I have been unable to keep my Commercial Driver’s License and I am not insurable on any job because I have 13 platinum coil implants in my friggn head. And, my head is
being held on my shoulders due to a titanium plate and two ‘wood’ screws… I believe I am pretty lucky to be able to type this email. J
So, this is my email to everyone for those of us in very bad financial conundrums…at ‘this’ time. Peace and Love, Bob L Liles
