NEWS RELEASE
February 9, 2011

 In support of “National Medical Marijuana Awareness Week,” February 14-20, Arkansas activists have mobilized a ‘send a Valentine to your legislator’ campaign, aimed at stirring a cascade of public support for the adoption of Medicinal Cannabis legislation by the 2011 Arkansas General Assembly.

“We have 30 days to get legislation enacted,” said long-time civic activist and the recently retired owner of gozarks.com, Christine Beems.

“We’ve talked with just about every Senator and Representative in our state,” Beems referenced others she’s involved with who have worked diligently on this particular issue for over a year. “Ninety percent of them say the same thing: They either favor enactment of medicinal cannabis legislation, or are not opposed to it. Yet they unanimously assert that, for some reason or another, it ‘just wouldn’t look right’ for them to get proactively involved unless they hear strong support from their constituents.”

And this, Beems said, is what she and other activists are hoping the ‘send a valentine to your legislator’ idea will accomplish. An outpouring of pubic support. “It would be nice if it went viral,” Beems chided. “It really is time for things to change.” ~~~

  1. United We Stand and Divided We Fall, let us unite to end cannabis prohibition once and for all!

  2. I think enough people have gone to jail for this bullshit, that the tax payers have to pay for, for no reason except for the cops judges, lawyers and politicians to make money off of. But what there actually doing is defrauding the public, with this stupid marijuana laws they have concockted.And extorting money’s and ruining family’s,I’m not talking about other stuff , just marijuana. So I think the goverment should quit useing the words drugs, because cannabus is not a statistic like other drugs.its here to help people, and if you don’t want to help people in the US get out.This means you assholes that are against it.Majority wins, with total population, and not your stupid ass senators.

  3. I agree with you, Michael, that the word ‘drugs’ should not be applied to cannabis. Still, ‘majority rule’ is part of the problem. Might does not make right… and that fallacy that it does is what has gotten us into the state of world affairs that we are in. Prohibition must be ended not because ‘a majority’ says so but because it is a pox upon humanity. Thanks for your comments.
