portland norml oregon marijuanaTwo amazing activists have joined the Portland NORML Board of Directors, and I wanted to personally thank them and congratulate them. I have never met Trista Okel, but I have heard a lot of good things about her and know that she has worked very hard over the years to fight for justice. I have never met Lindsey Rinehart in person, but I have talked with her a ton over the years over the web, and she is hands down one of my favorite activists. I have always supported her over the years, and will continue to do so in her new role at Portland NORML. Below is the announcement from Portland NORML – please consider making a contribution to their efforts and join if you are the area (lots of great people over there!):

Hemp Injunction Against Alex White Plume Lifted

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

In 2000, when the Oglala Lakota tribe passed a tribal initiative clearing the way for legal hemp agriculture on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation in South Dakota, two crops were planted. One was grown by the Slim Buttes Land-Use Association; the other was grown by the family of Alex White Plume on their family land. The hemp never made it to harvest. In August of that same year, heavily armed DEA, FBI and local and tribal police raided both of the hemp fields and hauled the plants away.

The raid hardly deterred the White Plume family. The next year they planted their fields again with hemp. But, again, the crops were raided and seized. They tried once more in 2002 and were raided a third time. At that point, the Feds had enough and slapped Alex White Plume, a former tribal president, with an injunction preventing him from planting seeds again.

Vets get free marijuana in Colorado Springs to fight pain & PTSD

A cannabis club in Colorado Springs is handing out free marijuana to military veterans, hoping to give them relief from issues like post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain they suffer from after returning home from deployment in war zones.

Over the weekend, the Veteran Farmers Alliance group handed out more than half a pound of pot and marijuana edibles – worth about $1,400 – to veterans in Colorado Springs. The group’s founder, Steve Defino, said other groups should also be doing the same thing and that marijuana was essential for him to deal with his PTSD, which he has fought for a decade.

“I’ve been able to actually go through my memories, recall my memories without getting upset anymore, and I’m starting to live my life again like a normal person,” Defino said in an interview with KXRM, which reported on the pot giveaway.
