             Info on Arkansas and Medical Cannabis

   Arkansas does NOT have a MEDICAL MARIJUANA
                   (cannabis) LAW
    ACTION; Get involved in the movement for safe and legal access to medical
 cannabis today. Our power comes from our collective action. Whether it's calling
Congress, attending rallies, organizing a local activity or chapter, signing an online
petition, or supporting federal defendants, take action today! There are a number
   of medical cannabis (marijuana) bills in play in states across the US. Here we
    network on Ways and Means anyone can help with the effort to make each a
 medical marijuana state. We need to get the word out and people contacting reps and
officials and get this legislation into law. Also, lets not forget efforts at the Federal level.

   NETWORK and Spread The Word, both On-Line and Off (!) ON-LINE, You
can tell everybody in cyber-space by e-mailing a link to this website to them and/or
(OFF-LINE> printing off the info and handing out where possible / necessary. Also
phone call and read off and/or visit and hand deliver the info. You can take literature
with you and approach businesses, organizations and even people on the street while
you're out and about. Wear your pot-leaf shirt and register voters, as feasible. Gather
signatures for any related petitions that are happening at the time as well.

This is a chain e-mail you can't refuse. Unlike most, this will actually help you - and
a whole buncha others - just by passing it on. Cannabis consumer or not - from the
folks just trying to take care of themselves or a loved one to those who simply see the
expensive, immoral waste of making war on the sick and dying - everyone is affected by
this issue.

To accomplish this you need to first click on the following links and send a message
to all the reps and media you can on the issue. Then get everybody else to do the same.
And follow up.

To do this you need to tell everybody you know. And can confide in. Then/or
anonymously tell everybody you don't know - or can't confide in. Yet.
Tell everybody else by Letters-to-the-Editor, displaying signage at street corners
and over-passes (wear trenchcoat, fedora and sunglasses if afraid of exposure),
and/or anonymously leaving literature and posting on-line at places where people
are likely to find it. Coffeeshops are good places to leave printed material and you can
go to the websites of the local newspapers to post items as well. More ideas and
supporting tools via the links below.

                       Inform, Educate, Activate

    INFORM and EDUCATE. Distribute medical marijuana brochures and other
literature to your friends, family, local leaders and elected officials in an effort to
educate the public and garner support. Educate your community by Printing, posting

campus, lamp post, telephone poll, business window (ask first), hospital, or anywhere
people will see them. Contact these groups for some. If you or your Organization is doing
the same, please Post It or give us Feed Back.

  Erowid Cannabis Vault : Legal Status, U.S. LAW | Both Cannabis and
Tetrahydrocannabinols, the active chemicals contained in Cannabis plants,
are Schedule I in the United States. This means they are federally illegal to
cultivate, buy, possess, or distribute (sell, trade or give) in all forms
(cannabis plants, extracts, hash, hash oil, thc, etc) except synthetic THC
(Marinol) which is Schedule III. The federal scheduling of Cannabis was
disputed in 1988 by Judge Francis Young, an administrative law judge for the
DEA, who recommended that marijuana be reclassified as schedule II on the
grounds that if a respectable minority of doctors endorse it, then it has a
"currently          accepted          medical           use".          Visit:

            International Law, LEGAL Resources
  Legal and medical status of cannabis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia |
Cannabis is in Schedule IV of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs,
making it subject to special restrictions. Article 2 provides for the following,
in reference to Schedule IV drugs:

      A Party shall, if in its opinion the prevailing conditions in its country
      render it the most appropriate means of protecting the public health and
      welfare, prohibit the production, manufacture, export and import of,
      trade in, possession or use of any such drug except for amounts which
      may be necessary for medical and scientific research only, including
      clinical trials therewith to be conducted under or subject to the direct
      supervision and control of the Party.

This provision, while apparently providing for the limitation of cannabis to
research purposes only, also seems to allow some latitude for nations to
make their own judgments. The official Commentary on the Single
Convention indicates that Parties are expected to make that judgment in good
faith. Click > here < for more.

  Voters continue to approve marijuana policy reform measures at the local level -
Last update: June 22, 2009 | Medical marijuana law needed: Not one Arkansas
legislator had the courage to introduce medical marijuana legislation this legislative
session, leaving sick and dying patients vulnerable to arrest. Interestingly, last year
marked the 30th anniversary of the federal government's little-known medical
marijuana program, which was implemented under the federal government's
Investigational New Drug program. If the federal government can have a medical
marijuana program, why can't Arkansas? Please send your state legislators an e-mail
today asking them to introduce and support a medical marijuana bill next session.

Reform at the local level: On November 4, 2008, Fayetteville voters overwhelmingly
approved an initiative that makes the possession of an ounce or less of marijuana
intended for adult personal use the city's lowest enforcement priority. Voters
approved the initiative by a 66% to 34% margin. In 2006, Eureka Springs approved
a similar initiative that made marijuana offenses the lowest law enforcement
priority in the city by a 62% to 38% margin. Make no mistake, the time for change is
now, and citizens all across the country know it. Voters in Hailey, Idaho; Denver,
Colorado; Seattle, Washington; Columbia, Missouri; Missoula County, Montana; Hawaii
County, Hawaii; and Santa Barbara, Oakland, Santa Monica, and Santa Cruz in
California have approved similar lowest law enforcement priority measures in an attempt
to free up police resources, clear court dockets, and save the taxpayers money. In April,
the Associated Student Government of Fayetteville's University of Arkansas presented a
referendum to the student body which stated that marijuana offenses should not be
punished by the university any harsher than alcohol offenses. The referendum passed
with 67 percent of the student vote. Click the link below to read more about what
students at the University of Arkansas are doing to put an end to unjustified marijuana
policies. Please take a moment to build on this momentum by urging your legislators to
introduce sensible and humane marijuana legislation during the 2010 session. Visit -

 Factbook: Medical Marijuana

1. Since 1996, twelve states have legalized medical marijuana use: AK, CA, CO, HI,
ME, MT, NV, NM, OR, RI, VT, and WA. Eight of the twelve did so through the
initiative process. Hawaii's law was enacted by the legislature and signed by the
governor in 2000, Vermont's was enacted by the legislature and passed into law without
the governor's signature in May 2004, Rhode Island's was passed into law over the
governor's veto in January 2006, and New Mexico's legislation was signed into law by
Governor Bill Richardson on April 2, 2007.

2. The Institute of Medicine's 1999 report on medical marijuana stated, "The
accumulated data indicate a potential therapeutic value for cannabinoid drugs,
particularly for symptoms such as pain relief, control of nausea and vomiting, and
appetite stimulation." And more. Visit -

  Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to
medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California,
former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter
stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven
therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures. Their
chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is
safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the
scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and
safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL
REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal
drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks." Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can
safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while
prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000
Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year. Click here for more.
