I couldn’t think of a better place to make my formal announcement of my run for public office then in the pages of MAPP’s MarijuanaNews.org newsletter – so here it is.
I am running for a position on the Board of Director’s of the San Gorgonio Memorial Health Care District which oversees the operation of the San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital and associated facilities in Banning, Beaumont, Cabazon, Cherry Valley and Whitewater. I am doing so at the urging of a significant number of local community residents, Pass Democratic Club members and quite a few folks who have been urging me to run for some kind of public office for years. So how does cannabis fit into the picture? CLICK HERE FOR THE ENTIRE LOW DOWN.
AARON SANDUSKY DESERVES A PARDON FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP
In the last newsletter I wrote about Aaron Sandusky, a local IE man serving ten years in federal prison for operating a medical marijuana dispensary in Upland as permitted by state law. If you didn’t read it or want to refresh your memory CLICK HERE.
Working with the CAN-DO Foundation, Aaron is trying to get a pardon from President Trump. At the July MAPP meetings letters were written on his behalf and sent to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Letters are still needed so if you could take a couple minutes and write one and send it to our President maybe he will twitter about how he is magnanimously freeing Aaron and other non-violent marijuana prisoners. It would certainly make headlines and with 89% of Americans supporting medical marijuana and 57% supporting outright legalization, it might just add some points to his dismal poll numbers.
The letter doesn’t and shouldn’t be long. Won’t take but a couple minutes to do it. For more information on what to write and where to send it CLICK HERE.
