Just received the White House response justifying the continued war against cannabis
Let's talk more about these "visits to emergency rooms"

It was around 1986, I visited a friend of mine who was preparing batter for some brownies. I love brownies.

When the brownies were done, they were removed from the oven steaming hot and smelling just great!  They were cut in squares and I ate one, slowly, savoring it's flavor. Yes, I knew they contained cannabis, so I stuck to one. 

I'm not well-experienced in smoking or eating cannabis.

After 20 minutes, nothing happened, so I ate another one--slowly. But shortly after I finished that brownie (they were so delicious I wanted to eat the whole pan), the first one started taking effect.  And the effect continued to grow until my host had to help me to the bedroom where I lay fully conscious but totally--totally unable to move any muscle or speak. I was worried.

My host who was experienced in the effects of cannabis didn't explain that I ate a little too much, that I should have been supervised a bit more, but nonetheless, I would be okay and would recover with no ill effects.  This was not explained to me, so I was very worried. Will I die?  Is this my last moment on earth?

Now, looking back I find it funny, but at the time I didn't.  And THIS is why people are rushed to Emergency Rooms--for no good reason.

Sometimes people are rushed to the ER because they consumed cannabis with something else--maybe too much alcohol or who knows what, and it could be that the other things may justify going to the ER.

Question: What if I would have eaten four brownie squares?  What would have happened to me then?  I assume I would have gone unconscious. In fact, in 1998, when another host was passing around some very strong weed, I took two puffs and I really did pass out, rather quickly.  But I regained consciousness with absolutely no ill-effects. I was surprised that I didn't even have a headache, like one would after getting too drunk on alcohol. 

Again, it could have been the case that panic would have prompted the host to rush me to the ER.

In all these reports, it's never explained what they do for the 'patient' in the ER.  Let them lie there on a cot and charge them for the visit once they recover?  --  And dutifully making a report for the DEA?

I propose that Minnesota NORML either support Farheen big time to get elected for the soon coming special election for the representative position in District 61B or that we put up our own candidate. The subsity she is referring to is available for Green Party candidates. What say we? Grassroots party? Should we flood the field with multiple candidates? We could get people into the democratic and republican primary and run third party candidates if we get enough signatures. Let's all really try to brainstorm on this one. Farheen is an awesome person and is pro cannabis legalization. If we help the campaign of whoever ends up winning the District 61B special election, we will have a huge friend in the House of Reps this upcoming session. It will also be good practice for 2012 when every candidate is up for reelection. We need to have a number of pro-cannabis candidates ready to roll in 2012 and we all need to be ready to help with their campaigns. 2013 is the year that cannabis will be legalized for medical use in Minnesota, we just need to start practicing and working as a solid unit. So... anyways, what should we do with this upcoming special election?

Hello all,

So now that the current representative got elected and there is an open
seat for District 61B.

I am really tired, and I would love someone to step up to the plate.  Here
are the people that have campaign committees up:
http://www.cfboard.state.mn.us/campfin/newcand.html
I know that Nate Blumenshine will also file.

If you are interested in having me run, then donate $50 to my campaign
committee, which I never closed.
https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=KFU97GYFA4S5Q
Check Neighbors United for Farheen Hakeem 3315 Elliot Ave. S. Minneapolis,
MN 55407

I do have the advantage of name recognition and having door knock the area
once in the last few weeks.  Any day now the writ from the Governor's
office will be written and you need 500 signatures.

Also, you need to raise $1500 to get the $2800 public subsidy.  That is
enough to do one mailing to half of the voters in the district.

Good luck!

Farheen
