A medical marijuana patient lay in his bed, cringing in pain due to complications from his battle with AIDS. Ryan Landers is stricken with chronic pain from a direct result due to the advanced-stages of the rehabilitating disease. As he lay in his bed with the pain unbearable, Landers reaches over for the only remedy that alleviates his pain – sweet mary jane. You see, this cannabis patient does not have the resources of other wealth families that can use the most expensive medicines and best tools to combat AIDS. People like Magic Johnson can afford all the bells and whistles of modern day medicine; Landers is only left with medical marijuana which serves him just fine.
With a grim diagnosis, the dying AID’s patient says “I’m looking at my life through terminal eyes.” This patient with a state issued medical marijuana card was the public face for California’s Proposition 215 campaign – the measure to legalize medical cannabis allowing patients to access their medication at regulated medical pot collectives. Landers said that if he didn’t have the access to medical marijuana, he surely would be dead. The medicinal plant alleviated his nausea so he was able to eat; marijuana has the ability to stimulate appetite to cancer and AIDS patients in need of assistance for hunger. With all the attacks on the 420 community and his fellow patients, he still remains active for the cause of helping the medical marijuana movement. He states, “I can’t stop fighting until my fellow comrades are safe from the tyranny.”
With the pain almost unbearable to deal with, Landers has to painfully pull himself out of his bed to visit a Crusaders for Patients Rights meeting – with his cat being there for morale support. The AIDS patient turned into marijuana activism after he was diagnosed with the illness. “I understand I had to lose every thing. I acknowledged dying and at that time I understood I was either likely to go to imprisonment and perish sooner, or I’d make a hell of a lot of difference.”
The rich have their expensive treatments to combat AIDS and cancer. Mitt Romney’s wife even has a horse for dressage to help her deal with multiple sclerosis. The average, middle-class patient only has cannabis. If people had the money for outrageous treatments, there would be ponies and extravagant prescription pills for all. The reality is 99% of patients don’t have the resources of the 1%.
Following the Los Angeles City Council elected to prohibit medicinal cannabis dispensaries recently, the town has been relocating to close down a large number of collectives where they feel this kind of stores are running. City authorities advise that only if the marijuana dispensaries shut down their business by in the near future, they will encounter steep penalties for each and every day they stay open providing medicine to the patients in need of it.. But medical cannabis advocates are driving back, trying to gather sufficient signatures to drive a ballot referendum which would certainly repeal the city-wide prohibition. During a media conference the other day, marijuana activists announced they think they are in possession of just over 50,000 signatures, which will certainly apply the matter for referendum. They stressed that this is a vital breakthrough to guarantee extensive health care for the residents of Los Angeles:
Numerous medical cannabis patients organized a news conference in Eagle Rock to highlight what cannabis supporters consider is at risk: the capability of ill individuals to obtain the treatments they require. Michael Oliveri is stricken with muscular dystrophy and states the prohibition will certainly make it harder for him to find his medicinal marijuana. “I was on prescrition pain medications for approximately 5 years, and I nearly passed away, literally, from fecal poisoning,” stated Oliveri. “And ever since that time, the one prescription medication I consider is the cannabis plant.”
Despite the fact that pot is prohibited underneath federal law, California approved a ballot initiative in 1996 to permit doctors to presribe cannabis to their ailing patients for healthcare purposes. Subsequently, over one thousand medicinal marijuana have popped up throughout Los Angeles and the city council remarks the pure amount of pot shops makes them difficult to successfully control and regulate. Even so, a representative for Americans For Safe Access remarked that rather than setting up legal requirements which will help supply operational guidelines, the present ban “forces every little thing away from view.” Medical cannabis retailers will also be at risk within other cities in California. The world’s biggest medicinal pot store Harborside Health Center, has been under pressure from Justice Department authorities to shut its doors in San Jose and Oakland.

I always have my Mema double the dosage that is in this recipe (I don’t need to explain my reasoning, do I…?). But either way, this is the best way to finish a big dinner. I would be hard presses to have to choose between this marijuana apple pie and the marijuana chocolate truffles we tried a few weeks ago.
• 1 nine inch double crust pie
• 1/2 cup unsalted
• 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
• 1/4 cup water
• 1/2 cup white sugar
• 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
• 8 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored and sliced
1. Heat an oven to 425 degrees F.
2. Melt the marijuana butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour to form a paste. Add the water, white sugar and brown sugar. Bring the mix to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
3. Place the bottom crust in your pan and fill with apples. Cover with the lattice-work crust.
4. Pour the sugar and butter mixture over the crust. Do it slowly so that it does not run everywhere.
5. Bake for 15 minutes in the oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F and continue baking for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the apples are soft.
Let it cool a bit before you eat it.
Thanks for the recipe Mema!

For the Marijuana Snob in All of Us…
These tools are pretty cool. I no longer have to use a paper clip or toothpick. Back in college I had a dentist’s pick that worked great, but after I lost it, I never took the time to replace it. Until recently. Now, I have a tool for every type of marijuana concentrate. Hash, keif, ear wax hash, gooey afghan hash and anything else that comes my way. Tools like this really come in handy when you are using a lot of different types of marijuana concentrates.
The Royal Blunts Easy Roll Tubes are smooth smoking, long burning rolling paper wraps that are nestled around a tube, ready to be stuffed with your favorite medication. You can buy them individually or in a box of 25 individually wrapper papers. The easy roll tubes are great for convenience and ease of use.
For a flavored blunt, these taste pretty good. Not overwhelming, but still a nice flavor.
