One of the issues i addressed in my campaign was cannabis reform, both on the long range social justice issue of legalization, but more immediately to address the inherent problems, oversights, glitches, errors if you will, with our state's nascent medical marijuana regulations. One of the first places in Mohave County to be approved for a medical marijuana (MMJ) dispensary is in tiny Dolan Springs, a wide spread but sparsely populated desert community about 30 miles north of Kingman, the home-base of my tireless campaign assistant, Perry Wickerd.
Due to decades of stigmatization and restricted access of information, many Arizonans are uninformed of their rights and the implications of having a MMJ dispensary in their community. Current AZ MMJ laws restrict general public information and advertising about dispensaries, so, in the public interest, in conjunction with Jay Fleming from the Mohave County LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition), Perry has organized a town hall meeting. Please feel encouraged to attend if possible and share this information.
If my campaign was about anything, it was about informing the public that we have the power to shape our lives and our country if we will only begin taking action. I have pledged to continue working on the issues as best i can. In this case that means helping spread word of the great work LEAP & Perry Wickerd.
