Story
Introduction
Since I've been posting about cannabis, I thought I'd give an example of what my conditions do to me. This is me after ~36 hours of no sleep. I guarantee if I had cannabis, that would not happen.

Everyone (including me) likes to post pictures of thems
elves happy and nice looking. So I decided to get real, and post a picture of how I really look.
I'm being honest, folks! Narcotics and pharmaceuticals are not helping most of the time (they help some, and I'm glad for that). Cannabis does... if only I could have it all the time.

Will you please help? Let's legalize Cannabis! See: Southwest Missouri Cannabis Restoration and Protection Act

Before I became disabled, I majored in art, minored in music, and then taught myself to program (starting with BASIC in the 70's, but really got serious around 1983 when I bought my Commodore 64). Now I'm a computer programmer.

"Taught myself" means studying and practicing. I love to read, and this (technical) stuff (usually) seems easy for me.

More recently I've discovered Propellerhead Reason (music software that is a recording studio on your desktop).

I've also started studying electronics. I got an Arduino, sensors, etc., and I'm having too much fun! :)

I go by aBoogieman because I like to play boogie woogie music (among other genres). I also see some humor in that name.

If you have any doubt that cannabis kill cancer cells, see for yourself! (My only problem is that it starts by saying they administered a "non-toxic doses of THC". There is no such thing as a TOXIC dose of THC! It is 100% non-toxic... unless you're a cancer cell!)

The cancer cells are the ones that look like a series of lines. The healthy cells are blue.

If you watch closely starting from ~0:12 - 0:17, a little over 1/4 of the way from the left side, and above center, it looks to me like a cancer cell "opens wide" and "swallows" that healthy blue cell! But then it's like the blue one just shrugs it off, and for a moment, it looks like the cancer becomes healthy, but by then it's part of the other cell, so it's absorbed in its healthy state.

Does anyone know if that is, in fact, what's happening?

Amen, brother! It is time to legalize! It's a vegetable and I should be able to grow it as one.

See http://www.cannabisrestorationandprotectionact.org/ for what we're doing in Missouri! Total legalization!

See the Facebook groups for each individual district in MO, too. They all contain "Missouri Cannabis Restoration and Protection" in the group name.

I did not catch a single mistake! Some of the B&W clips are from the US Government-produced film, "Hemp for Victory"! (The guys beating it; harvesting; etc.) And I noticed a couple of other "plagiarisms", but I think they are justified and well-used, so I wouldn't really call them that.

Most of this is explaining the science behind it, but also appealing to the emotions--which I think we need!!! :-D

We need to educate people. And if we have to make a few people mad before they know the truth, go easy on them--it's not their fault, it's the government(s)! They will eventually understand, or else their mind is closed and we may as well move to the next person!

This is an interview with Mark Pedersen, author of Missouri Cannabis Restoration and Protection Act 2016. Well worth watching! (Only ~12 minutes long.)

Mark is very educated on both the legal and pharmacological sides of cannabis. (Recently I was privileged to meet and chat with him in private. He is very caring and seems to have infinite patience in sharing his knowledge. A modern-day hero, IMO.)

Amen, brother. This is going viral--I just know it.
I love you for making it, and all that helped!

NORML, Feds agree on the benefits of cannabis! 

We're on the verge of legalization, at least for medical marijuana. This is huge, and it could mean a turn-around for not only the US, but the world!

I hope so. I am disabled with several conditions that Cannabis has proven to help. So I would directly benefit.

I believe that knowing it can help, and doing nothing, is a huge crime!
The third day of hearings on the constitutionality of cannabis' federal Schedule I status presented further bizarre twists, as both federal prosecutors and NORML's defense team appeared at times to agree on the medical benefits of cannabis.

All of my Google+ friends, will you please take 30 minutes and watch this video, especially if you are against cannabis legalization? He explains a lot of things that everyone should know about the plant, how it works in the body (and why!).

It does contain mild profanity for humorous effect. (I think....) But it's not bad, and only a few. The science that he talks about is all spot-on, as far as I could tell! And that's why I want you to watch it.

Please, will you?

Thanks for another great video, Don Seegmiller! This is a cool tip, and I agree--it looks very effective. :)

Please read the article for some very interesting points!
While CNN's chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, has taken bold stances on the legitimacy of medical marijuana before, he's about to go all in, according to an article posted today on CNN under the headline "Dr. Sanjay Gupta: It's time for a medical marijuana revolution."

I have an idea:

Who wants to be trained to collect signatures to legalize cannabis? I now am good friends with the guy who wrote the bill! We can Skype (or Google Hangouts, please Mark??? please then people could join from their home, too, and I wouldn't have to turn anyone away for our first one!!! Let's maximize the net!

I think any app that offers more users/broader bandwidth, etc., should be favored over one that reaches less people for hours of yours and my time

I want to have an event in my home to train people. I'm afraid (based on responses to previous posts!) that I may get too many and have to turn people away for the first event!

We could record an event, but after attending one, and seeing how efficient you are, and how knowledgeable at answering questions, I almost prefer you not record. That way people get in-depth answers to your questions. (This guy is good, guys! I want to soak up as much knowledge as I can)

I'll hold as many events as we need! +Mark Pedersen  has already said that he will! So it's just a matter of scheduling.

(Obviously if you live outside of MO, or are <18yo,  no need to contact me. Other than you want to. ;) )

I agree with Mark 100% because I've been hit with a number of health issues that cause chronic pain. I would much rather take something NON-TOXIC than opiates! If only I could. Will you please help me make it so in Missouri? Please?
