It's also wise to RESEARCH WHO YOU VOTE FOR beforehand. If it's a new candidate, research their work history, community involvement, integrity, etc. If it's an incumbent, research their voting records on the issues...so we can eventually put an end to this political nincompoopery in this great state, once and for all. Forget the well-known quip; Ignorance has never been bliss~
So, let me get this straight: the opposers who sit on the State Affairs committee are more worried about what Idaho law enforcement thinks about this issue - a collective panel that greatly benefits from Prohibition via assets seizures, fines, federal tax money, etc., - and didn't provide a single physician, scientist or expert lending testimony in favor of their stance, rather relied on the word of yet *another* person whose office also benefits from Prohibition (Figueroa) and literally *ignored* the testimonies of the ACTUAL EXPERTS, pediatric neurologist, Dr. David Bettis (he is not alone in his opinion; the American Academy of Pediatrics recently go on board in supporting cannabinoid medicines) and parents of the epileptic children. Idahoans...get off your duffs and get proactive. Not just with the cannabis issue, but with EVERY issue our lawmakers are involved in. See how bad they've fudged things thus far? Not registering to vote/turning out to vote is a travesty in a country where it's your *RIGHT* to do so.
Jeremy Miller: There are over 66 known (so far) cannabidiol compounds in cannabis that can be formulated into over 500 medicines. While this particular oil is ideal for epileptics, a CBD oil with trace amounts of THC is needed to induce apoptosis (cell death) in cancerous tumor cells. And please...don't assume I don't do my research - it's my job to know.
605 people polled in a state that has over a million people who call this place home is *hardly* "half" of Idahoans. That's the thing about polls - they are nowhere near the ballpark of being accurate nor reliable, unless a larger part of the population has input.
Don't blame the cyclists for 'rolling stops'; blame the Idaho state driving manual. It clearly states that cyclists don't have to stop at a stop sign.
Oh yeah, because banning books creates an enlightened, informed society. Not. Most high school sophomores in the 21st century read/see MUCH worse on social media, the internet and their peers. Is Meridian going to ban those things, too?
I'm very proud of these protesters, for standing their ground and fighting for civil rights. Seems to be anymore, groups of Idahoans just like this one are being regularly forced into taking things into their own hands because our legislators just aren't listening anymore. You have to ask yourselves, "WHO are they really working for?"
Keep up the fight!
