    Toddler is One of Youngest Medical Marijuana Patients in Montana
    There are more than 28,000 medical marijuana card holders in Montana, and 51 of them are under the age of 18.

    If you have to lie to kids and vilify opposition that has no basis in reality. Either you’re hoping your kids stay as ignorant as you. Or they go behind your back and risk greater danger dealing with the black market and harder more deadly white powders. Stop the lies moms.

    ‘Nightmare’ of Medical Marijuana Threatens Kids
    Montana kids are in trouble! After speaking with principals, educators, parents and kids across the state, it’s clear our schools are suffering the devastating consequences of passing the medical marijuana law. Montana is now No. 2 in the nation for teen marijuana use. Our situation is serious. One principal described it as a “nightmare.” Another said “It has crossed all boundaries, even star athletes are using it.” They are finding it impossible to tell kids it’s harmful. Many kids don’t even believe it is still illegal, citing storefronts and signs all over town as evidence.

    Same paper, same place yet we have light in the tunnel vision of prohibition…

    Repeal of Medical Marijuana Law Makes No Sense
    Why is repealing medical marijuana backward and mistaken? Because cannabis is making a huge, positive medical difference in the lives of thousands of good Montanans. Because it makes no moral or economic sense to redefine these genuine patients as criminals and to force them back onto the narcotics that helped them less and caused worse side effects. Because a patient who has had no seizures since switching to cannabis (and used to have a dozen every day) can’t fairly be asked to go back to a “life” on the drugs that didn’t work.

    Teen pot smokers? Don’t blame medical marijuana laws

    “..concerned about the effects of marijuana on developing young brains…” Like the effect of helping the child survive brain cancer? Any other “effects on developing young brains” we oughta know about? ONDCP? Anyone? *crickets*

    Here is the transcript of the story Toddler, one of 51 kids using medical cannabis in MT. As for the Missoula Underage Substance Abuse Prevention Coordinator, the poor woman’s name is Brandee Tyree. What can one expect…

    “..concerned about the effects of marijuana on developing young brains…”

    I see the treatment industry hack still opposes childrens’ access to medicine.

    Well 76 percent of the good folks of Montana are not buying it in the most recent polls.I don’t think, they will take this lying down,you think they will give up there medicine peacefully no I can’t predict what will happen something has shifted lately,you can feel the rumblings worldwide do not think USA will be immune,I t might take some time but peaceful or strong protest in one form or another will eventually Win out.

    It’s very unfortunate that that woman’s last name is the same as mine. I say with confidence that our surnames are the ONLY thing we share!

    …and the folks in Pete’s post turn into these folks:


    Allan, I’ve been beating those women about the face and head all day with facts, statistics and citations. They’ve still got the same dumb look on their face, but now at least they seem annoyed.

    Better link for commenting:


    Did you know that 70 Montana cardholders are over the age of 80? There are 10 nonagenarians in that cohort as well. (0 years old, and using medical cannabis. Who’da thunk it? Surely not myself, I was stunned to learn that today, but it was only because the Brady Bunch made me look up the statistic of how many Montana minors have cards, and the rules they’re required to follow to get cards.



    It was sometime after the turn of the century that I learned that if you’re in a contract dispute, reading the contract and then using it to beat up the guy on the other side of the table was amazingly effective. Gosh, the SAMHSA studies have given me some very compelling arguments. Crime indices from the Disaster Center, just like Babe Rith’s bat. Did you know that the California crime index is down almost 39% since 1996? That the violent crime rate is down 43+%?

    The crime stats aren’t as powerful in Montana though, because they only run through 2009 and that was the first year that the # of patients really bumped up going from 1577 in Dec 08 to 7339 in Dec 09 to 27,292 in Dec 2010.


    Montana is in the top quintile for the incidence of drunk driving.

    Of the 10 States with the highest rates of drunk driving, 5 were in the Midwest (Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin), 3 were in the Northeast (Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island), and 2 were in the West (Montana and Wyoming).


    At Montana’s current cost per prisoner, putting 28,362 patients in jail for a year would cost around $320,000,000. This despite Montana having the lowest cost of incarceration of the 50 States spending $11,268 per prisoner. Montana is projected to have a deficit of around a half billion in 2013, so this move could theoretically double that deficit when you add in social services for dependents left behind as well as lost sales and income tax revenue.

    It is actually quite staggering that Brandee Tyree (treatment industry hack) is prepared to argue on public TV in favour of denying sick children access to medicine.

    The fucking gall of these people.

    How many children are prescribed amphetamine? I’ll wager a staggering amount daily take their Ritalin and nobody is raising a stink about that.

    Jeffrey’s Journey

    By age seven, Jeffrey had already been prescribed more than a dozen drugs to control his violent rages. Nothing had helped.

    Then state officials gave Jeffrey’s mother an ultimatum: Find something to help your son or lose him to institutional lock-down.

    Extensive research convinced this conservative, Christian mother that medical marijuana could be her son’s last hope.

    Jeffrey’s Journey chronicles the success of Jeffrey’s treatment, as well as the family’s court battle defending their son’s right to unconventional medicine.

    This family’s story makes clear that, for parents, the need to relieve a child’s suffering must transcend politics.

    Controversy swirling over Montana Medical Marijuana repeal attempt

    House Speaker Mike Milburn wants to repeal Montana’s medical marijuana laws.

    Poll: Montanans Overwhelmingly Oppose Repeal of Medical Marijuana Act

    Is Baby Hyde going viral? On WPIX TV in New Jersey: http://www.wpix.com/wpix-medical-marijuana-nj,0,662200.story

    Little itty bitty poll on that page, would everybody take a second and vote? TIA

    Do you think NJ should legalize medical marijuana?
    Not sure

    At this moment 100% in favor.
    Wow those Montana lawmakers sure don’t care how the people vote.

    House votes to nullify Missoula marijuana initiative http://helenair.com/news/article_fc29c262-3f25-11e0-a989-001cc4c002e0.html

    His concern is having a hodgepodge of locally enacted initiatives throughout the state to set local law enforcement agencies’ priorities, Berry said.

    “Next thing you know, it ends up chaos,” he said.

    County attorneys and law enforcement officials don’t know which state laws to enforce, Berry said.

    “State law is state law,” he said. “If you don’t like state law, come here and change it.”

    Now how the heck would Montanans do that? Every time they vote for a change in the law their masters in Helena repeal their vote.

    I really wish that cops weren’t so easily confused. /sigh/

    If everyone was watching the news interview carefully with an open mind you would see that this Brandee person was not and did not at any time speak about medical marijuanna. She was speaking about kids using marijuanna as a recreational drug….there is a difference
