How One Pennsyl-tucky Hick Representative can legally Kill Children

How One Pennsyl-tucky Hick Representative can legally Kill Children

Example 1: A Fucktard, Who has probably never been to a PA forest in his life, who lives for stomping on the hopes of desperate parents, and probably has cum on his Bible more times than on his wife
                                You couldn’t just let the kids have some peace.
                You had to be difficult over a monetary reward of a VISIBLE $22,000 from GW Pharmaceuticals.
You control the Board that SB3 has been assigned to in the House, and you don’t have to put it up for dick-diddly squat. Because you’re the Chair. You hold the chips. And, you’ve been adamantly stubborn about cannabis in every way, and will continue to be so, because you’re paid to do so. You, sir, are a shill. There is nothing about you that I could appeal to for sympathy for this cause and there is no reprieve in this honest, yet brutal account of who you really are, made public, for all of PA to see.
                There are not going to be paragraphs in this piece that tip-toe towards civil persuasion. If the evidence and testimony and research thus far have not yet convinced you that cannabis legitimately has a medicinal property to it, then you are obviously beset against cannabis ever being legal, regardless of how good and applicable it may be.
                There aren’t words that carry the broken-hearted heat of hate that we, the people in need of medical cannabis feel towards you. You carry the Federal rhetoric on your shoulder as though it were a golden cross that weighs a feather – because it is. You have no trouble. You have no want. All you have is everything, but you can’t afford others anything. Matt Baker is the same infection of human personality as Nixon, only as concentrated in ignorance and arrogance as our shatter is compared to the trim available in Nixon’s day. Matt Baker embodies all of the worst that Tea Partiers feel about Obama while also entirely pissing off liberals for everything he does.
                If an appropriate fate could befall Matt Baker, he would be plagued with cancer and cancerous legions, suffer like a leper, and be refused the cure that 88% of all population around him has embraced.
                That would not happen with us, though.
                The cannabis community is strong. The cannabis community is compassionate. The cannabis community values life before money, and children before the interests of one SPOILED, OLD, JERK. The cannabis community has banded together. They serve each other, even when the government won’t permit it. They share each other’s’ hardship and they have a common vision. That vision may not have hit critical mass yet, but it will soon.
                It will soon, and I will revel on the day when I can drive up to your house, Matt Baker, stand in the very public road out front of your house with 100’s of my friends and closest, and smoke joints, bongs, bowls, rigs, blunts while others are eating canna-cookies, cannabis extracts and cannabis oils and others still are working with hemp, making products, BEING USEFUL. Something you abhorrently refuse to acknowledge that cannabis users can do. BEING USEFUL.
                I’m telling you. Not asking. Not pleading. Not arguing or debating. I’m TELLING you, Matt Baker. When you kill this bill, you kill children. You kill veterans. You kill a piece of Pennsylvania, and we will not forgive you. This is not a matter that you should stand in the way of; you’ve seen States topple like dominoes towards legalization of medical and recreational and you know that you’re practically standing “on the corner of the Amtrak line”, if you’d take a current reference, (but you represent no-where’s-ville, PA, so you’re probably TOTALLY removed of all happenings in the REST of the State).
                Again. I am not writing this to appeal to your “good” side, Matt. I don’t know you, I don’t want to know you, and I believe that your mere presence around me is quite off-putting. I’m writing this because I see right through your smug, asinine grins. I know that you can’t wait to make your place in history as Pennsylvania’s next Harry J. Anslinger. Because of that, I am simply writing this open letter to you, to say one thing:

Fuck you.

PA Medical Marijuana: It "Cann'tabis"

As it looks, the PA medical cannabis bill is getting strangled in red tape. Revisions have been introduced, but no clear outline is in place for more qualifying conditions based on science aside from the creation of a medical cannabis board, which in and of itself is going to delay access to medicine for at least two years, even if SB3 and its respective House bill pass, and get by Governor Wolf, who has already indicated his support for a medical bill.

What's unfortunate, is as seen in the picture above, smoking and vaporization have been excluded as medical delivery mediums, straight out of the gate. This sentence stands boldly, early in the SB3 as a clear, "No, F*** you." from the far right-leaning PA politicians, as few and disliked as they are.

In all seriousness, there have been paraphrasing of medical cannabis meetings where ignorant politicians propose that mixing decarboxylated cannabis with mashed potatoes would be fine, whereas processing cannabis into butter and creating edibles should be illegal.

Because, you know. After all, it's all about the m***erf***ing kids, isn't it?! It's always about the kids, until the sick and in-need kids are paraded in front of your hearings, pleading for an effective program because they have little time left. Politicians shake their heads, shake their hands, bow in silence and refuse to act in compassion. Well, we were all kids at one point, and to think that you're denying medicine to someone as bright, innocent and full of potential as you when you were a child should be a crime.

Stigma concerning this plant that has been seeded in racism and government sponsored propaganda against the counter-culture movements associated with jazz and cannabis has literally ruled our policy since the late days of alcohol prohibition. Prohibition has never been an effective tool against use of a substance, nor has it been fiscally responsible for the State. The fact that we are still caught in this stalemate between the public will for change, against the obstinate "Representatives" of our voice who do nothing, if not the opposite, of what we're clamoring about!

Matt Baker - R-PA: Opponent of Medical Cannabis in PA

If we continue to let the minority, elitist individuals who are privileged enough to get paid $10's of $1,000's of dollars by Pharmaceutical company's lobbyists ANY say in the development of cannabis legislation that has an impact on Pennsylvanian lives, we are going to go the way of New Jersey: stuck in a poorly laid out State program with strict and unreasonable regulations that inhibit patient access for years after a MMJ law passes.

When this doomed piece of legislation goes through and inevitably fails because it does not describe any delivery means of this medicine, aka: there is no dispensary infrastructure described, any right-winged politicians that get in control of PA in the future are going to attack its failures as a reason that it should be shut down. All this legislation describes are fees and costs associated with licensure and the strict adherences that must be made if actually operating a dispensary. It does not protect itself through establishing a system of checks and balances within the new MMJ industry, nor does it effectively allow for the qualifying conditions that science shows can be treated or cured with cannabis.

While we tout the progress of being able to get a medical bill through in a State where a conservative jerk ruled ignorantly just years prior, we need to be wary of letting things slip by just on their perceived value.

90% of the population may support MMJ in PA, but of that 90%, how many are going to READ SB3 or other legislation before it passes and voice out? Not 90% of them, I'd wager. That would be great, but the numbers just don't work. Those that are most actively involved may, but the bell curve majority will only celebrate in private revelry when the announcement is made that PA has legalized Medical Marijuana. Little will they know how limited a program it is, especially when taking into account the vast popularity of medical cannabis across the population here.

While we fight and fight to make a difference and be heard, it seems that politicians can't get anything right because regardless of testimony and true urgent need, there are still those that believe they are "righteous crusaders", protecting the future generations of children from a "gateway drug".

If you believe that kind of psycho-babble bullshit, I personally hate you and I hope we never meet.
Cannabis is medicine and I know first hand, so stop making decisions that affect others' lives, when you quite obviously know so little about the science of cannabis-based medicine, politicians.

If we pass a CBD only or limited MMJ bill, we are coming in meekly on the right side of history. We're limping onto the winning side's battle, late and warily. Pennsylvanians aren't limp or weak - we proudly have polled in strong favor of cannabis, so far as establishing a majority in favor of recreational cannabis! We should forge a strong, medically-based, patient access friendly program NOW and show New Jersey, New York, Maryland and Delaware (all medical States ahead of PA) how to effectively implement the Peoples' will!
