Bill Maher once suggested that the biggest problem with the marijuana movement is some of its "leadership". As an old hippie from the 60’s I have some serious questions to ask those in the marijuana movement with money who are not investing in, advertising with or donating to those who have already invested everything they have into ending the war on drugs!
Have we become the greed we've been fighting?
On the west coast hemp hero Jeff Clark, multi-decade of both the military and marijuana movement, has been homeless since his house burnt down in 2000. Though both men continue to give their all to the movement and based on results acceptance has passed the critical 50% number, both men are still homeless.
Lynette Shaw invented the modern dispensary system, had a successful dispensary and now can't have a club. R.W. Akile helped produce the first and all subsequent Global Marijuana Marches since 1999 and he does not have a dispensary either.
So much money in the marijuana movement, so much greed in weed.
Richard M. Davis died on January 10, 2014 with the entire museum locked up in storage in LA for over a year, no word yet on its future, if any. His partner said they tried everything to save him so for the life of me I still don't understand how did the founder and curator die of cancer since we know cannabis cures cancer. I don't know if he had clean access to the Rick Simpson cannabis cancer cure oil.
The smart thing to do by the way since Richard M. Davis, Jack Herer, Sister Somayah Kambui, Peter McWilliams, Gatewood Galbraith, Michelle Rainey, etc. are gone, is help Chris Conrad the new museum curator of that marvelous over 3,000 piece collection of hemp everything. Take that collection viral. Before Richard died he had every item photographed.
Luke Scarmazzo, NJ Weedman, Rev. Roger Christie, Rev. Eddy Lepp, Marc Emery, Dr. Marion "Mollie" Fry and her husband of 25 years, civil attorney Dale Schafer and about a million other people are in jail or on trial as in the cases of Share Christie , Bob Doler, Lee Reisch and countless others who are being tried or fighting in court for having the courage to interact with the hemp plant. That's wrong on so many levels.
We need our hemp heroes, like Paul Stanford who uses his money to the bone (though he has a wonderful, young family to support), with initiatives, a cable show named Cannabis Common Sense, joint hosting a radio show, running a series of THCF medical marijuana clinics that get folks their certification for qualifying illnesses, patient activist, hemp research consultant, etc. I recommend Paul to be the UN's Hemp Czar.
Folks are dead, in jail and/or dying from fighting the war on drugs, sacrificing everything in order to speak truth to power. Here's another example.
The father of marijuana broadcasting, like before most folks even heard of the internet as it could relate to their lives, Casper Leitch, coming up on a quarter century, the longest running program dedicated to hemp, is fighting to save his recently expanded broadcasting network. Originally the King Of Pot was going to be a big part of the team with a show and help raise the funds to do the network. Shortly before they began, Michael Malta died and Casper make the tough decision to go forward anyway.
Before setting up the Time4Hemp Global Broadcasting Network, the program was on American Freedom Radio reaching about 2.5 million people. AFR went silent without warning in the middle of 2013 due to the marijuana arrest of its owner. Now the Time4Hemp network has more than 20 hosts and offers much needed international bridges.
Since September, 2013 Casper and his friends, many of whom dedicate their program time to teach and entertain, built this powerful information fountain that now runs 24/7 with live and/or archived programming on everything hemp. The network, with hosts speaking in many different languages, is a voice for the marijuana movement, as the program has been since 1990...sometimes by Casper’s pure grit. Yet, it is danger of being silenced within months after limited legal recreational marijuana became law without the financial support of the marijuana community.
As you probably understand, I am having great difficulty getting my brain around how much greed must there be in the movement that with as many hemp folks in trouble as there are, why not enough action is being taken to help the folks most capable of pushing the anti-prohibition agenda forward.
Whatever you can do to support any of the activists named here or elsewhere who you know helped make the difference we are experiencing now, just in time for the future, support them too. Together we are achieving HEMP FOR VICTORY. Look at Colorado.
