    I just wanted to thank you for your services. I have retweeted several of your updates on twitter, and so I thought I’d say thanks.
    I’ve lost numerous family members to various forms of cancer over the years (I have a grandfather currently undergoing chemo), and each and every time I’ve seen the treatments weaken the individuals significantly.

    On a personal level I would give nothing more than to see these people suffer less on their way out as a result of different/herbal medication; or endure less struggles as they fight for life- attempting to regain appetite/strength and regular daily functions without pain.

    I am an advocate for intelligent, and responsible legalization, as I think it’s time certain legislators begin to realize that addressing years of ignorance could definitely lead to necessary changes in the lives of many citizens, both socially and economically….

    As an Ivy Leaguer, I’ve seen kids use the plant recreationally and cause trouble, however I’ve also seen (numerous) people use it in a functional manner, responsibly obeying every other law in this great country.
    I just hope sources like HempNews can continue to bring many hidden aspects of the plant to life, in an intelligent, rational, well-written manner.
    People will respect the movement more when we approach them with facts and figures.

    This one’s for you 🙂

      Thanks for sharing your experiences – your family losses and challenges with pain and cancer – and how your perspective has been affected by these experiences. I am always touched by the compassion in those who are working though the tough decisions in support their loved ones – fighting for their lives. I am also inspired by the intelligence, passion and clarity of thought that surfaces in the many people who are active in this community – many for decades before I got became involved.

      With each passing day I marvel ever more about this most intelligent plant – cannabis sativa. How much smarter a plant exists on the planet? Hemp has made itself indispensable to man for most of recorded history – there is no exterminating it. I have come to believe that this humble plant holds the key to the future of sustainable communities – for our health, our economy and our humanity.

      I also believe in the innovative spirit and capability of America, and in the heart of its people. I agree with you – we need to move the conversation about marijuana out of a rhetoric mode around a criminal issue and into the realm where it truly belongs – as a dialogue and debate about a health and compassionate care issue. While I of course have my own opinions on the issues, my goal here at HempNews is to promote build a place for intelligent and informed dialogue and debate about the issues so we can put the myths on both sides of the discussions aside and talk facts.

      Not until our community at large has this dialogue can we move on from this failed approach and learn how to embrace marijuana in our lives in a honest, humane way and start paying attention to the urgent needs of its many victims – the “unintended consequences” of this failed war on our people.

      Thanks again for reaching out and sharing.

  4. I recently went through seven months of Chemo for Metastatic Melanoma, (I was scheduled for 12 months but my body couldn’t handle it), and I truly don’t think I could have made it through the Chemo without Marijuana. There are Many reasons for my opinion about Marijuana Legalization but Medical use should be a right as an American citizen! Marijuana Legalization and Healthcare Reform are the two most important issues in my life now. I feel that Americans should have the right to have access to both. I have expressed my opinions about Marijuana Legalization several times on your site and I continue to speak to anyone that will listen to my opinions. Love your site, keep up the fight. I also have a link to this site on my personal page so that my friends can read the great articles that I find here.
