Michigan is full of controversy these days and over the next few months some major events will take place to show the world where the people of Michigan stand on the issue of Medical Marijuana. September 7that the Capital in Lansing, MI a protest will be held to support the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act (MMMA) which the voters approved unanimously. The reason for this protest is our Attorney General Schutte is in dereliction of duty along with other officials who are not supporting what voters approved.
As Attorney General it is Schutte’s job to enforce the MMMA not attack it and prosecute patients any way possible. Barb Agro has become the face of Michigan’s medical marijuana movement. At 70 years old, this outstanding citizen lost her husband to a heart attack after armed thugs arrested her and her entire family. Those armed thugs were hiding behind badges. They are not only persecuting patients they are stealing their equipment and then selling it for profit in order to fund their budgets. Clearly, the citizens of Michigan want this stopped.
Patients need dispensaries for safety; Barb was working in a city approved dispensary and was growing within the limits in her home with her husband. Barb Agro and her husband are the martyrs for the cause to protect patients, protect freedom, and protect personal choice rights. If Schutte gets his way not only will he imprison patients he will imprison doctors as well. The people are going to be standing up on the steps of the Capital to send a message to our elected officials Protect patients arrest perverts.
On a brighter note, the next month October 15th and 16th High Times Magazine will be holding the Medical Marijuana Cannabis Cup in Detroit. Patients are looking forward to this event because it will allow them to find out information on which dispensaries are providing the best medicine. Our dispensaries are the primary source of protection for patients. Without dispensaries patients are forced to the black market and subjected to dealing with shady drug dealers.
The High Times Medical Marijuana Cannabis Cup October 15th and 16th will be one of the biggest Medical Marijuana Gatherings in Michigan. The tickets are priced at $30 and $60 depending on which package you choose. This event is open to everyone and patients are looking forward to this event like kids looking forward to the carnival. This is the very first time High Times will host a cannabis cup in Michigan which is exciting to everyone. While many attend hash bash every year the High Times Cannabis Cup signifies the light at the end of the tunnel.
The protest to support patients’ rights in September is vital. Every available voter who is able needs to show up and make their voices heard. Patients are people too and they deserve respect not contempt. This serious and important event will be followed the next month by the High Times Medical Marijuana Cannabis Cup which is a welcome event for all those who have worked hard to protect the patients of Michigan.
