Talk About Marijuana At Thanksgiving This Year

  • by NORML November 22, 2017

    turkey-jointWe have much to be thankful for this year. Lawmakers in 26 states have passed legislation to advance cannabis reform, including New Hampshire becoming the 22nd state to decriminalize marijuana and West Virginia becoming the 30th state to pass a medical marijuana program.

    This progress has come as a result of years of organizing and conversations with our fellow citizens about the role of government in relationship to a plant. Having the tough conversations about the scope of the government’s right to stop, search, and incarcerate individuals for possessing or consuming marijuana for either personal or medical benefits.

    And now for the first time ever, Gallup polling recorded outright majorities of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents supporting the legalization of marijuana. The only way to find out if this includes your aunts, uncles, cousins, and other relatives is if you bring it up.

    So use us as a resource – NORML.org has FactsheetsTalking Points, and you can even pass your phone or computer around the table to have your friends and family contact their lawmakers right then and there to support reform in our Action Center.

    As we look toward an uncertain future, we know we must work to both sustain our existing gains and to win future victories. With your continued financial support, we are confident that we can bring the era of marijuana prohibition to an end and usher in the new era of legalization. Together, we will be unstoppable. Together, we WILL legalize marijuana across this great country.

    From all of us at NORML to all of you, we hope you have a hempy and happy Thanksgiving.

      I can only remember the joy of smoking that wonderful weed and to imagined all my friends from the past and those who have past on.

      About eating food laced with marijuana, be sure to warn people and also have a 45 minute timer before going after that second bite. I don’t think it would be a happy thanksgiving when people start barfing.

        Haha… point taken. Thats why I say grind it up for a “light” fusion. People dont want to break the buds up and thats how people get way too stoned. I should have said only a few grams of weed per bird with what we get these days too.

        And “spike” to me would only be my brothers and in laws who I know like medibles. Trick is not to overdo things.

      Another article on medical marijuana and the Feds. There are also two others in the side article section, one on PTSD and marijuana and the other on California. Show your support in the comments if you wish.

      Ok, last one for now, article on California’s coming marijuana industry. There is another article on magic mushrooms and marijuana in California, but I will leave it at this post for now, lol.

      1. Wait until children are coming to school high because of those parents who think it is okay;
      2. Wait until some teacher is teaching high &/or bus driver is driving while high, etc.;
      3. What will be the legal limit on blood THC?;
      4. If cigarettes are problematic & we continue to have ignorance on that…what will cannabis add to this ignorance???
      Then we will have more of this:
      “Police pulled a woman over for speeding in a school zone Tuesday, and came to find her and her passengers had been smoking marijuana
