Should Marijuana be legalized? Medical or not….

Update on Homeless Shelter for Teens:

Things are moving slowly on the fundraiser. Fred and Portia Cook are wonderful people in the community. I recently visited them to find out more about what I’m able to do for the ‘kids’ teen shelter fundraiser. They are looking into a possible umbrella for the fundraiser.

The youth are growing incredibly:

We watched an online debate about legalizing marijuana. The concern is now that some parents in legalized states are not able to take their children to the park. Apparently heavy drug users such as cocaine and heroin users are openly sitting in the parks with parents and children.

Results:

Open discussion in youth.  The open drug use was a concern for the youth, though the general consensus is they would like it legalized.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Survey for Medical Cannabis is below.

Check EACH box that applies to your situation. Then tell your story.

Let’s try to get some information from all points of view.

NOTES:  10-3-2012 I’ve had people say they don’t want to take the survey because they want to remain anonymous. So, I’ve been going to homes and letting people use my laptop and phone to give their opinions. You may also fill out the survey without leaving your information. If you’d like to add your information in the ‘comment’ box, we will add it to our survey and delete your information so it remains anonymous.

Folks, I love God. Anyone that knows me knows that.

Putting up a survey for public opinion concerning Medical purposes is not wrong. This is part of an ongoing project to give youth an idea of the importance of public opion.

I know RELIGIOUS people who take prescription drugs wrongly, or drink alcohol to a drunken state.  I don’t judge that, so don’t judge me…….. ALL I need is stats.

Thanks,

RitaAnn~

Point for NOT legalizing marijuana:

With all the talk about legalizing marijuana floating about, the question for me isn’t whether we should legalize it or not, but the question

amongst all the arguing and politics…..and, let’s be real, who gets the money…….but the question should be “what about the next generation of leaders?”

I recently heard an interview on both sides of the coin. One issue the police officer brought up resonates in my thoughts; he lives in a state where

weed, tree, cannabis or whatever name you  choose to call it is legal and his concern was that when he takes his children to the park, there are people

running drugs in their veins. Okay, that’s a problem.    We have been so caught up in things that are beyond our understanding that we’re not seeing the

children. The kids are the ones who suffer.

“The latest poll results point to the absurdity and even venality of persisting with harsh prohibitionist policies,” said Ethan Nadelmann, founder and executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, in a statement on Monday. “No other law is enforced so harshly and pervasively yet deemed unnecessary by so many Americans. Spending billions of dollars and arresting over 800,000 people annually for violating marijuana laws now represents not just foolish public policy but also an inappropriate and indecent use of police powers to favor one side of a cultural and political debate.”  Huffington Post
