Smiles- another page of pot art/
(This set of images are 1440x900 and are not named. I got a bit carried away with a couple rather simple image effects. Some of the images are just that, A simple effect applied, then a bit of tweaking to color, contrast, ect. Others are a bit more
{{ Just left click image, will open full size in new window }}

I would like to get get on a diffrent soapbox for this page.
Let's ponder the subject of Medical Cannabis.
There are so many uses for cannabis as a medicine:
Here are just a few-
Agitation of Alzheimer's Disease ,       Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis
Crohn's Disease,         Glaucoma,        ,Hepatitis C,          HIV/AIDS
Nail Patella,  Cachexia or Wasting Syndrome,  Severe Nausea
Severe - Chronic Pain, Seizures
Severe/Persistent Muscle Spasms
{{The above list is what most states with Medical Marijuana  programs accept to be a patient.}}

There are 16 states and Wash. DC that have passed medical marijuana laws.
There are several more states,10,that are up for vote in 2012.
( Up- Date 2016.  26 States, plus Guam & Puerto Rico are legal Med use.  30 states have a form of Decriminalized or reduced to misdemeanor. Dallas & Houston in Tx. have Decrim.
4 states and Wash. DC  are LEGAL for recreational use. 6 more states voting on that this Nov. 8th, 2016 ..... WE'VE come a LONG way, still so much to do though.)

The federal govt. is fighting back hard, IRS bringing up antiquated laws to levy against dispensaries, Att. General threatening to bring federal charges against state health departments, threatening landlords and lots more. Even after Pres. Obama's directive to leave patients and states alone that are in compliance of that state's laws.
This includes Dispensaries!
Where there is legal medical marijuana- there must be safe access!

Corporations, Far Right Conservatives, "Parent Groups", ( most are fronts for F.R.C.) & the mis-informed, are running scared and doing everything they can to fight against it.

We, as a people, are slowly, but most definitely realizing that the propaganda and hatered surrounding the issue of cannabis is pure B.S.!
Too many have paid a very high price because of the laws written due to these lies.
With logic and truth, we can abolish theses laws and
"Free the Weed"
It will be one more step in the right direction for "We the People."

{{Putting soapbox away}}
