Medical Marijuana Bill Symposium

We are proud to announce that Minnesotans for Compassionate Care (MCC) and Minnesota NORML are hosting a symposium on medical marijuana in Minnesota. Heather Azzi and Tom Lehman, representatives from MCC, will answer questions from patients and activists and conduct a training session for those willing to be public advocates in support of medical marijuana. Of particular need are potential medical marijuana patients, family members of patients, medical professionals, and other local opinion leaders. Make sure to tell your friends and family about this opportunity as well.

Roughly a third of the country now lives in jurisdictions with medical marijuana laws that exempt the sick and suffering from arrest and criminal prosecution for using marijuana with the recommendations of their physicians. It’s time Minnesota follow suit, but we need your help. Please join fellow supporters to learn how you can be of assistance. RSVP if you'd like and mark your calendar so you don’t forget.

After the meeting our very own Secretary, Brandan Borgos, is running in the freezing cold down Nicolet Mall in the middle of Minneapolis with 400 other people in their underwear at 1:00pm because he is in a race to cure Neurofibromatosis, a disease that causes tumors to grow on nerve cells. He will also be there raise awareness of the medical benefits of cannabis to cancer patients. Join us as we go cheer him on

If he is willing to get out there in the middle of winter and brave frostbite in his underwear and make this bold move for such a worthy cause, perhaps you can spare a few dollars to contribute.

Whether it be $5 or $500, every last donation to the Children's Tumor Foundation is appreciated, tax-deductible and goes a long way.

Just think - one donation could be equal to one night out to dinner, one movie with a friend, or your morning coffee.

Save a life instead...

    Repeating what has not worked in the past and expecting it to work this time is defined as insanity. Even if it does work what's in it for you? For us? For freedom? Dayton has already declared that he will go along with the police who count on marijuana remaining illegal because it's a cash cow for them. Our current effort would be better spent identifying a Governor and supporting him/her.
    Letter writing, lobbying, and the rest, for what is at best a weak bill, sucks. If we want to legalize marijuana we should go for the whole ball of wax instead of another time wasting effort.
    Legalize marijuana and medical will be PART of it...not IT.
    If you respond to this please skip the bullshit.
    For the people,
    Free the people, free the weed, use the herb, and plant the seed.

    Excellent meeting. It was fantastic to meet Tom Lehman and to see Heather Azzi again. I loved the important message that Tom gave to us about splitting up the 5 groups and Leaders. I think if nothing else , this message should be posted by mnNORML on it's social media outlets. 2014 will be here quickly and Dayton must see a pro side on all divides. Yay...I'm excited!
