Ganja Granny sez 6/23/10
Ganja Granny Sez this past Saturday at the Mermaid Parade on Coney Island we managed to get some great footage for “Ganja Granny’s Quest for a Legal Hit “Costumes were truly inventive and creative if not… down right outlandish and daring in a fun filled way. Lou Reed was King Neptune and his wife Laurie Andersen was OUEEN MERMAID of the entire sea. Most people, I talked with, when asking about a legal hit, directed me to Canada although a few suggested California. It was a lively fun crowd. Everyone was in agreement that New York is long over do…. the majority support Legalizing for ALL purposes. …… It was a magnificent day to be on the boardwalk and feel an occasional Ocean breeze. It was HOT and Sticky in more ways than one.The festivities lasted from 2-5pm and was well worth the trip to Coney Island. …….This week we are still trying to find a legal hit or at least get a few more view points on how people really feel about Marijuana and the real possibility that we will have it in NewYork for medicinal purposes. Friday we will definitely be traveling to Albany for a huge Rally/Festival with a radio show Friday Night. This weekend we are covering “The GAY Parade in NYC and in Harlem”……Monday night I came home to Emails and Phone calls concerning Governor Patterson of N.Y.who did a FLIP FLOP on medical marijuana. Marijuana Policy Project called an emergency Press conference in the Capital building in Albany, New York. THere were a half doz patients who spoke about their plight including myself. A number of experts were there including Senator Adams, A doctor and an retired member of the Police Dept. How effective we were????I have no idea. The governor has to insert it in the budget. Its up to him. Its a shame…. This waiting and wondering is enough to drive someone to smoking an illegal joint. People in need want this choice now! This past week…. which I may have mentioned before, the Liquor Industry came out with a legal192 proof alcoholic beverage…2 shots in an hour, would render a 180 pound man legally drunk…Same for a 130 pound female. 96 % alcohol! and “THEY” do not want to make Medical Marijuana a legal alternative choice for patients in need. THEY gotta be kidding…This stuff is so lethal “THEY”will wish Marijuana was legal everywhere for all purposes.”THEY” are going to be begging for medical Marijuana. No matter what happens we have come too far and we will not retreat under any circumstances that prevents us from Legalizing Medical Cannabis….We Will Not Go Quietly Into The Night….In fact, we are not going anywhere. We are here and we will step up our efforts to educate the public and hopefully our Governor. Its not like he was going to be re-elected. What does he have to lose????? He got the job by accident to begin with. Why he wants to leave us hanging is beyond me, including all the patients and supporters. At least, he would be remembered as the Governor who made a compassionate effort to RELEASE the Medicine and End Putting Patients in Jail if they were placed in a situation where a choice had to be made. Obtaining illegal marijuana for relief and getting busted! I would take my chances and remember how I felt when I too had to make such a choice. When you are that sick…You are not thinking about the law or its consequences….As soon as I get some real news on this subject I will let you know…From my ears to yours. In the Meantime look for us this weekend. Friday the 25th in Albany at the Rally for Joe Barton and in Harlem on the 26th at the first ever Gay Parade and of course in Manhattan at the biggest Gay Parade of All on Sunday the 27th. We hope to represent HOUSING WORKS THRIFT SHOPS.Their fight is our fight. Its all about Civil Rights! Look for Ganja Granny and say HIGH…. SidLocks will be behind the camera as usual…P.S. Don’t forget the radio show Friday the 25th at 9 pm…..DELEON DIALOG Radio Blog Talk Show call in number is( 347 ) 945 5853…Subject matter is Should We Legalizing Medical Marijuana. Doug Green from Normal is also featured on this show…Tune in and stay Blazed!
