      We need MM in Ohio and I don’t know where to start to get it on the ballot for the next election. Can anyone direct me? Is there a NORML org. in Ohio?

      What an unexpected surprise.

      Dang Florida, GUAM beat you to it! (Although to be fair they ARE 15 hours ahead of you and the sun is about to rise since it’s already Novemeber 5th there, but that’s BESIDES the point). Are you gonna let GUAM take all the limelight, Florida?! Huh?!

      What really surprises me is that the Department of Health and Human Services appears to be in charge of the distribution in Guam…

      Question: If the D.H.H.S prohibits marijuana federally yet legally distributes it in Guam locally, isn’t there a violation of the Constitution in there somewhere?
      What does that mean for patent 6630507?
      Doesn’t the Secretary of Health have permission under the Controlled Substances Act to deschedule cannabis?

      Check out OhioRightsGroup.org. They’ve got a constitutional amendment for MM and hemp and need all the help they can get gathering signatures to get it on the ballot.

      Momentum for MMJ is still there. Maryjane still got her medical mojo.
