Tumblin’ tumbleWeed.

February 21, 2014

Covered a rally for legalization of medical marijuana at the Oklahoma State Capitol. Likely a Sysiphean effort, a couple of hundred people showed up for hearings, classes on how to approach respective legislators, and the general rally. There were many very serious citizens with canes, wheelchairs and children looking for at least the option to try the promise of medical marijuana. There were also many who just wanted to smoke some weed.

This woman, with her one-year-old boy who is taking medication for seizures that occurred up to 75 per hour wanted to have the option without having to uproot her family and move to Colorado or Washington state. She said the medications severely limit his development, both physical and mental.

There were official signs for the rally and also people protesting the country’s most severe punishments for possession.
