Congratulations to Attorney General Bill Schuette from the Medical Marijuana Community
By Richard C. Clement
A Weed Warrior Addressing
Lansing MI City Council
We in the Medical Marijuana community congratulate Bill
Schuette on being re-elected to another four year term as Attorney General of
our state.We applaud Mr. Schuette for protecting
pensions, standing up for the Constitution and, being the voice of the people.Mr. Schuette is defending the will of the
voters on issues like Affirmative Action and Same Sex Marriage that were
soundly rejected by a majority of the voters in Michigan.
One of the benefits of the Supreme Court of the United States is
when they made a decision to say that religious beliefs trump the law of the
land regarding Hobby Lobby vs the Affordable Care Act case.The result of this decision is that a Rastafarian
(or any other religion that supports the use of Cannabis as a Medicine) can use
their medicine by law. We hope that Mr. Schuette continues the fight for the people
by supporting their will and, convincing the United States Senate and House of Representatives
to remove Marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, you are protected under the HIPPA regulations
that prevent you from disclosing your illness.Any violation of these rules are punishable by law with punitive damages.
However, in 2016 a statewide measure to legalize and remove Marijuana from the
Controlled Substances Act will be placed on the ballot. This will be the time
for people to speak in the ballot box on their support of legalizing weed for
the jobs we need. Michigan would be joining states like Colorado, Washington,
Oregon into common sense. Every Democratic
candidate who ran from President Obama and Marijuana legalization lost in
November 2014 while Weed won big in Alaska, Oregon, and 3 cities in the State
of Michigan. Local control is essential to disrupt the dollars flowing into
incarceration into education.

In two years, we will see who the lamest Duck is between: Federal
and State Legislators and, the President of United States.Marijuana will be reformed and removed from
the Controlled Substances Act and, that will be another accomplishment on
Barack Obama’s legacy as President of the United States, even thought he should
have done it 6 years sooner.Otherwise we hope that our current legislators listen to the
will of the people because people who don’t vote now, will pay the price in the
next election. Then and only then, the will of the people will be finally be
