A quick note on who we are and what we are about. We are a non-profit devoted to making Cannabis available and legal for medicinal use to all citizens under a doctor's supervision. We have submitted two previous bills; HB 1380 and HB 577. This year, after much work on many people's parts, Reps Kelly Alexander and Pricey Harrison were the primary sponsors of HB 84.
HB 84 was written to specifically meet the demands of the Republicans in NC State Government. Though never in writing, nccpn..specifically me ...was led to believe if we were sincere about the medical use and the bill was carefully written to prevent abuse, we would be given a FAIR HEARING at the Rules Committee.
After the fiasco last year with former Republican Rep Stephen Laroque, who took HB 577 and put it in his pocket, killing it. I thought.."there is no way they would again just trash the work of everyone"; at least we could expect the bill to make it to the Health Committee so the new claims that it kills cancer and protects normal cells could be discussed.
WRONG; THE DISPICABLE ACTIONS OF REP PAUL "SKIP" STAM, approved by Chair Rep Tim Moore, with the knowledge of Speaker Tillis, WILL NOT SOON BE FORGOTTEN!!!
Last week, the website had between 3300 and 4000 visitors to the site at one time with over 30 dedicated members on line. This is one heck of a political force. We must learn to capitalize on it. Joining and helping with calls and letters is one sure way to make your voice heard.
On this coming Tuesday, nccpn senior staff will meet with Democratic Party Chair Randy Voller at the Goodwin House in Raleigh. This is not a partisan issue; sickness affects ALL living things, republicans included. We are examining all possible avenues forward, from Lowest Arrest Priority to Medical Defense in Courts.
Please, we have an opportunity to join on one forum with our issues. Join all organizations you like, and each will benefit from your membership. What we really need are members who are tired of the same old shit and ready to MAKE THEM LISTEN!!!
