OK. Time to respond to the attacks from the ignorant and misled.
Senator Jason M Lewis 5th Middlesex and Rep Hannah Kane 11th Worcester.
Kane is a Republican, and Lewis is a new type of Massachusetts Democrat from Winchester.
These two Massachusetts politicians are working hard to subvert the will of the voters. They boldly claim to know better!
There has been twenty years passed since California first approved Medicinal Cannabis. Massachusetts politicians have had ample time to plan for a legal distribution model that works, and work with citizens to do so, but our politicians have been practicing extreme cowardice and ignorance. That’s fine, because the voters will just have to change the law themselves.. and we did. but oh wait, Now these ignorant Massachusetts politicians have decided that they want to get involved! Smell some cash? Time to inject some ignorance and oppression into the new paradigm, right?
Acting concerned now is just slow, ineffective, inefficient and transparent in its discriminatory effect. Lewis and Kane seem to believe that the voters of the Commonwealth are not capable of voting and developing a policy for themselves. They seem to think that the voters got it wrong in a bunch of ways and they are going to fix it! Like toddlers helping Mommy clean up by making a bigger mess! Modern prohibitionists are like Gay Bashers, from a different more ignorant time, with a skewed sense of morality, and hostile tendencies. Lets hope they get some help, or have short careers.
We will be contacting the offices both of these politicians offices, as we all should, and help get them up to speed.

Any local politician that works to undermine the will of voters should be called out forcefully!
Ask them why they are trying to re-criminalize cannabis? And how much are they being paid to do so? We know that the biggest lobbyists against cannabis are Law Enforcement, Prisons, Alcohol, Tobacco, and Big Pharma, which ones are these politicians in bed with? Or are they are just moved by the foolishness of the voters to act?
Gov. Charlie Baker’s Prohibitionist Stance on Cannabis
Governor Charlie Baker is a Prohibitionist on the issue of cannabis.
Cannabis prohibition and the larger Drug War is immoral, racist, ignorant, and responsible for making our once peaceful communities violent.
Just as Alcohol Prohibition did in the 1930s, and as all Americans were very aware of this fact back then, they amended the US Constitution rather quickly to reverse the misled policy and law… 21st Amendment..
Our modern American society is not honest enough about our racist justice system, racist drug war, and racist mass incarceration to address these issues, and reverse the misled drug war..
Too much money is made for too many Americans now for us to revisit the tremendous wrongs that were done under these previous administrations..right? We are too heavily invested in mass incarceration now..right? Gotta keep the money circulating… right?
President Obama struggled just to enact his own policies.. fixing the policies of our previous republican administration will take more than two terms..
So how are we to build the will to reverse such entrenched and built in yet totally ignorant, wrong and misled policies from multiple administrations going back to the 1970s of our country?
Now we have a racist Republican nominee for President, Donald Trump… who is very much NOT unlike previous Racist President Ronald Reagan. Reagan followed in the footsteps of our most criminal and disgraced president of modern times Richard M Nixon, who started the drug war as we know it.. Reagan kickstarted the Drug War into overdrive. This is the legacy of the Republican Party. Of which our Governor belongs to..
So it is not surprising that he is an invested prohibitionist, but his ignorance or willingness to misrepresent the truth on the issue of cannabis is still disappointing and even depressing. Why are politicians never held accountable for these bold lies?.. Cannabis is a gateway drug, cannabis is dangerous, leads to criminality, its more dangerous than cocaine (therefore should be illegal), cannabis damages your brain, recovery community is against legalized cannabis all lies, lies, lies, lies…
Gov Baker is a Republican who refused to attend his party’s racist national convention and claims he wont vote for their racist republican nominee for president this year! uhm OK..? WTF!? Discourage people to vote much Governor?!
Why does he claim to be a Republican again?!!? You can try to distance yourself from the racism in the republican party but as a republican Charlie Baker supports the same racist, ignorant, immoral policies that his party does.
Governor Baker is furthering classic negative cannabis propaganda.. The Gateway theory has been thoroughly debunked and most people in our modern culture are aware that it has. Get real man! Thats some bold faced lies Charlie!!
Scientists long ago abandoned the idea that marijuana causes users to try other drugs: as far back as 1999, in areport commissioned by Congress to look at the possible dangers of medical marijuana, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences wrote:
Since then, numerous other studies have failed to support the gateway idea. Every year, the federal government funds two huge surveys on drug use in the population. Over and over they find that the number of people who try marijuana dwarfs that for cocaine or heroin. For example, in 2009, 2.3 million people reported trying pot — compared with 617,000 who tried cocaine and 180,000 who tried heroin. (More on Time.com: See photos of cannabis conventions)
