Cannabis Education at Cancer Runs

Cheyenne Weldon, a presenter at the SE NORML Conference in Nashville last December, shows a t-shirt her chapter designed (see photos) for participants at a Texas Cancer run. Weldon’s creation is a good example of opportunities we as users, activists and educators can explore as agents of change. To reform harsh marijuana laws and share the positive benefits of cannabis, educating non-pot smokers is vital to the movement.

Chronic Pain
Cerebral Palsy

Muscular Dystrophy
Narcotic Dependency
Parkinson’s Disease
Sleep Disorders
Tourette’s Syndrome

To see more of their cannabis education work in Texas that you might be able to use in your area, please click here. I’d love to see more of those t-shirts in public and in front of decision makers.

Weldon came to the SE NORML conference with legislative packets filled with facts, statistics and examples of how legalization and regulation can help control under age use, lower prison overcrowding, etc. I hope we can get that information up on this site for you soon.

Our work is to spread the word and represent ourselves as decent, tax-paying citizens willing to politely educate others. It’s time for reasonable laws and policies instead of harmful and counterproductive mandates from another era.

  • If they would legalize marijuana in this country it would not only help people with all kinds of diseases but it would also get this country out of this 17 trillion dollar debt
