We are sick, some of us are dying; we have been neglected by our community, our Government, and our laws; we have been betrayed, denied and disavowed. We are forgotten! Politicians posture, as our police sworn to ‘serve and protect’, can only feel like puppets, being pulled by their Masters’ strings; by those that want to control the conversation; far, far away from ‘care and compassion’; especially, for those that are currently physically suffering, because they no longer have free and easy access to their own, lifesaving, and medically prescribed marijuana.
It’s NOT all about recreational use; it’s also NOT about the legalities or the lack thereof; it’s truly only about one thing…the rights of medical marijuana patients to their health and longevity. We want to live our lives, free of pain and suffering; free of shame and guilt, from what others may think regarding our own health needs and initiatives, and our need for this so called ‘marijuana drug’! What works for me, to ease my pain and suffering works for me. If it works for others, many others, it’s even better; as we can all get better together.
In any free country, free of tyranny and mass control; sick people are allowed to access health care for their needs as they need it and when they need it; freely, easily and effortlessly. They are sick; some are dying, and most are suffering, daily, continuously, despite their best intentions to heal themselves of their infirmities, diseases and cancers.
These are the people that we as politicians, community citizens, police and legal representatives, are affecting with our abject neglect, insane health policies, and contradictory laws. These are the poorest and the sickest in our society that we are punishing for the sake of what? Political sleight of hand posturing, and for what, the God Almighty Dollar? For the sake of Greed and Social Control, over our sick and dying? Is this really what’s going on behind the scenes?
No sick human being, especially one who is seriously ill and suffering in pain and discomfort, should ever be denied access to medical care when they need it the most. That should be a basic medical right; and a protected right by our laws, by our politicians, and our police. Yet, they’ve betrayed us!
These recent raids on the medical marijuana dispensaries have had a devastating effect on the lives and wellbeing of thousands of medical marijuana patients across the GTA; as we no longer have access to what we need, to help ease our pain and constant suffering. Days have gone by, and without any consideration to our needs; as the newspapers, police and politicians argue endlessly about everything, except what matters most in our own lives, our sickness and suffering; and most importantly, our need to access our medication NOW!
Will you please stand up for our medical rights as marijuana patients! Make your voice felt; help us access our medicine NOW!
