Groups Come Together to End Marijuana Prohibition, Increase Cannabis Research and Promote a Compassionate Health Care Response to Drug Use and Addiction

Moms, Cops, Nurses & Docs Present a Panel Discussion at the Marijuana for Medical Professionals Conference in Denver, Colorado on Sept. 11

Moms United to End the War on Drugs is bringing together a coalition of family members, health care professionals and criminal justice professionals to end cannabis prohibition that has been so destructive to our families and communities.

Moms, Cops, Nurses & Docs will be holding a panel discussion at the Sherman Street Event Center in Denver, Colorado (1770 Sherman Street) on Thursday, September 11, at the Exhibit Hall Stage at 12:30 pm. Speakers include Mary Lynn Mathre from American Cannabis Nurses Association; Dr. Jeff Hergenrather from the Society of Cannabis Clinicians; Theresa Daniello from Moms United to End the War on Drugs; and Leonard Frieling from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP).

In 1937, laws were put into place prohibiting the use of cannabis in the United States. In the past decade, more than six million Americans have been arrested on marijuana charges. For several decades, people who use drugs and people with addictive illness have been banished to the criminal justice system.

Nearly half of all prisoners in state prisons are locked up for a non-violent offense. Every year 750,000 people are arrested for marijuana, wasting law enforcement resources and throwing non-violent offenders into the criminal justice system.

West Virginia: Medical Marijuana Gaining Support

Fellow lawmakers would get uncomfortable three years ago when Delegate Mike Manypenny would buttonhole them in the hallways of the West Virginia House of Delegates. You see, Manypenny was trying to collect votes to legalize medical marijuana.

Even for Manypenny himself, it could get a bit uncomfortable, reports Mannix Porterfield at the Beckley Register-Herald.

"I needed to try to get support," Manypenny said. "I'd go out and start discussing it. Everybody I talked to stared at the floor and shuffled their feet in discomfort. No one walked away, but they said very little. They wouldn't give me eye contact."

Manypenny even heard whispered comments -- and snide remarks -- as he walked to and from his office. "Your bill just went up in smoke," was a typical crack.

No one is laughing anymore.

Manypenny introduced the medical marijuana bill again in this year's legislative session, and this time he picked up nine cosponsors, including Delegate Larry Kump, a conservative Republican from Berkeley County.

The shift has emboldened Manypenny to increase his efforts; he has been assured than an interim committee on health will give him time for a least one hearing -- possibly two -- on the bill before lawmakers convene in regular session next January.

StarsNStripesLeafBehindBars

Each Friday during August, "Time 4 Hemp - LIVE" will be hosting two-hour specials to produce a 10-hour Global Cannabis Summit with some of the most brilliant minds and amazing leaders of the industrial hemp and medical marijuana movement. These presentations will be broadcast live on American Freedom Radio as well as on AM/FM stations across America and the ROKU Broadcasting Network at 9-11 a.m. (PST), then made available for free download from the archives at American Freedom Radio and in iTunes.

The cannabis legalization movement, according to Time 4 Hemp host Casper Leitch, has long wanted to have Congressional or Senate hearings, as well as the chance to meet with world leaders to present:

• The rational thinking and hard data that verify prohibition as a failed policy which ruins personal lives as well as the future of the following generations;
• The most significant scientific studies pertaining to medical marijuana and the need to stop arresting sick people and those who are caring for them;
• The hard data that verify the cost of arresting people for using marijuana (as well as other items found in the black market) is something society can no longer afford;
