What Am I?
I am sick and tired of Health Canada and Steven Harper saying everyone they
provided licenses to are CRIMINALS.
WHY now? After providing thousands with permission to grow for years?
Because they REALIZE that YES indeed Cannabis will become a BILLION dollar industry and they can make $$$. LOT's of MONEY.
Who cares about the Health in Health Canada?
It is ONLY about money... for them.
For US it is about a life saving medicine that has changed our lives for the better!
ONE that WE were prescribed by a Dr. (not paid for) & granted permission from Health Canada to have a Designated Grower and provide Storm with his own medicine.
YES WE have invested MUCH. Blood , sweat & tears and $$$.
You would too if your only son was suffering from a terminal to progressive, no treatment no cure, chronic pain disease! We are after 7 years finally just now making up for all of it and providing for Storm and myself perfectly.
NOW Health Canada expects us to stop providing for ourselves - as we have for the past 7 years. We are expected to stop and start paying for cannabis -* the amount Storm would need, according to Health Canada's prediction of prices would be:
10 grams / day @ $5 = $18,200.00/year
@$3 = $10,920.00/year
@ $7 / gram = $25,480.00 < what H.C. suggests.
ARE YOU F*CKING KIDDING ME? - people wonder why I swear. ;)
We can not afford it. Could you?
For something our DG is now producing for pennies?
I think NOT.
Simply because they ASSume, we are all criminals?
I know what I am and it is NOT a criminal.
All cops are Pigs.
All fat people are lazy.
All blonds are dumb.
All priests are pedophiles.
All muslims are terrorists.
All women are easy.
All men are assholes.
All politicians are criminals .. (hmmmmmmmm - verdict not yet in on this one.)
^ALL WRONG! ^ All negative, uneducated stigmas/stereo types.
This is no exception. It is wrong.
Criminals? Gardeners!? That is what they are!
GROWING A PLANT. A human right.
How we have survived - forever.
Who are you?!
I hope I have inspired more to do the same or at least THINK about it. We are powerful. We are Not criminals and we deserve the right to provide for ourselves as we have been for years. < Thanks to Health Canada.
I wanted to make a little hand-out for kids that might come to the EXPO, and for kids in general. A conversation starter. There have been several children over the years.
One page. Something to color with the added bonus of a few folds and a simple cut and you make a cute little book. Saw it on PIN. I drew this today and have since asked FB friends their opinion of what should be in a book. I have a few new ideas and hope to try to keep making these pages and keep them circulating!
Every page is an opportunity to talk to your children about Cannabis and making healthy choices in general! Please feel free to copy and print it out I have also added photos that show you where to cut and how to fold below the coloring sheet ;-)!!
Print out a few and plant the seed of TRUTH in young minds & you plant the seeds of curiosity, understanding and compassion as well! Have fun! XOX
I hope it works I will ask a friend tomorrow how to load it so you can download it as a coloring sheet.
Music for your blog reading enjoyment:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dzs1K3caXJk
Wow, this cartoon smacked me right in the head ;-) Awesome.
It started with a joke from my best bud Cathy.♥
I was stressed wondering what to draw for 4/20?!
The universal day of
Celebration for Cannabis!!!
Grown from a seed.
Made by *GOD.
(*original patent holder)
Medical, Recreational, Hemp, Food, Fuel..
It's the day and I want to say THANK YOU!
I have said it so many times, I thank God daily for this Plant!
Give us this Day our daily Bud... <3 Wow. YES, I read recently how powerful that prayer is; Give us this dayour daily bread, -not thanks for yesterday, or make sure I have it tomorrow. Give us THIS day. Focus on today.
.. and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and that ^ ^ ^ That simply put means ^ ^ ^ : PEACE, PEOPLE!
Religion aside... who can argue with those lines? How else are we going to get ahead, clearly WAR is not the answer! Thank you Marvin, now in my head for the rest of the day.
People all around the world who suffer over a plant. A plant less toxic than many others, proven helpful to ease pain, yet illegal and lives destroyed because of it.
WTF? O.M.God. How disappointing.
A PLANT. While others rape, kill, abuse, terrorize, suffer & starve needlessly...
enough with the bullshit distraction.
FOCUS on the REAL problems at hand.
Rise Up people! Speak up! <3 Celebrate this Plant! Let it be a symbol of change.
It all starts with a SEED!!! Life.
So.. Yes! Give us this Day our daily bud, and thank you Lord for it!
I do! Everyday! Keeping the Love of my life happy - How could I not give thanks?
Celebrate 4/20, Spread Peace and Love !!! - there are already enough assholes doing the opposite;-)xox <><
Tomorrow is the BIG day! Cannabis will be celebrated all over the world! What started as a time for a bunch of guys to meet to smoke some 'marijuana' at 4:20 everyday , has turned into a world wide celebration! On April 20th - 4/20.. People all around the world unite and light up! AWESOME!
At first I thought it was 'neat' but then to see it grow and share! People get together to share, hang out, talk, laugh, educate and stand up for something they believe in!
Medicinal and recreational, the crimes against Humanity regarding this plant are shameful. Every year it grows larger, parades, marches, sit -in's & MORE! Think about it... When else do they do this? Not enough times I'm afraid. We should have a world wide NO GMO day! Or Celebrate the children day and stop abuse!
I was asked to post a cartoon early at 7:00 p.m. my time - because it is April 20 on the other side of the world already! ;D Yes, I will admit in my small mind, I did not think of that at first! How many realize the problems regarding cannabis are all around the world? Some people even die because of it.
I do! I have been educated! I plan on doing what ever I can to help educate others!
If it is as simple as drawing a cartoon that will get some attention, create a curiosity...
I have another new toon to post tomorrow a.m. ;-)
Have a great time all who plan on doing something special for 4/20! Remember to do it 'peacefully' < something asscoiated with pot smokers, and I'm fine with that!
Stand up for what you believe in! Why else are you here?
Delivered directly to your In box! E me if you want to be on the mailing list.

We watched an interesting doc. the other night, I was watching it and the guys joined me at some point. It was called: Food Matters http://www.foodmatters.tv/
We watched it on netflix and it was awesome.
We are juicing most mornings and they don't always taste so great - especially the kale BUT - They taste better than medicine, they taste better then sick!
I will say I made kale chips and LOVED them - 250 in the oven for 30-35 min.s
Rubbed in olive oil and a bit of lemon seasoning - YUM!
Must get more Kale tomorrow. Watch the documentary. It is informative.
Do you want to be healthy? I WISHED I had seen it an listened years ago!
I will admit I have had an exhausting week leaving me thinking... is this as good as it gets?
Is the slow to heal excuse just that ...
I have decided to do what I love best draw and paint.
If you give a man enough rope... he'll hang himself. Is this what Health Canada was hoping for? People have been providing medicine for themselves, with Health Canada's approval and now they have changed their mind and want to take that right away from the people.
For years, Canadians have invested time and money and educated themselves on the task. Not always an easy one, for some it is all they are physically able to do. Grow their medicine.
Growing for themselves keeps them safe, affordable and easily attainable.
For many it has become a passion. It keeps others feeling useful and not a drain to society to be able to provide for themselves or a family member. <3 Much like Grandma grows tomatoes in her garden and shares the good health with the rest of the family.
Think about it - You tell me the difference. Strictly on the plant level.
There is none.
All this will be gone. They will be forced to pay higher prices (according to HC), will have fewer options, some will turn to opiates because they will be able to get them easier. It is sad.
They will continue to grow what they need to survive, but now they will be afraid to do, what a few months ago was not only legal but encouraged by Health Canada. Will they go to jail? Will they lose their investments? Homes, kids, famalies. lives.
Who's government treats it sick this way?
I know too many people who are losing sleep, a few hope... some say they are at the end of their rope and the despair in their voice is obvious. It is a shameful thing to be doing to people over a PLANT.
If they could say it kills people/it hurts.. but they cannot - instead only proof on all it is doing to help those who need it. I'm too tired to start to name why.
Please show your support on this issue.
One day it might be you who does not want to take an addictive pain killer for your back ... or you will want your child to use cannabis if they need too.
We already have a leaf on our flag a maple leaf = Plant
Cannabis = Plant
*Our hotel is booked for the TY EXPO ... <3 I hope and pray to see you there.
I use to have a dog that did this. Very embarrassing.
Hmmm’ I must admit the very first time I saw the idea I thought it was good.
It was a teen on the side of the road - I forget what it was even about - I saw it in the paper. Since, I have seen a few that I don’t really agree with and wonder like everything else, has it crossed the line?
One man’s shame is another’s funny?
I did see one that upset me, It was a little girl - perhaps 3, looking really sad - Pee’d the bed again. ;-( Wow. Compassion has left the building in that house. 3 Years old! Not everyone is a Beethoven. Come on, how is that gong to help the child?
I felt sorry for the little girl.
Poor parenting skills ? Sometimes we do things that we think are funny but others don’t - I can’t justify it in my mind. The image was not well received so I hope the person that shared it realized.
I do giggle at most pet shaming. I know because I have my girls' and they know when they are bad, NOT because I beat them - because I don’t. Some dogs I worried might be frightened. But you cannot assume that.
I have one the second I see her in the morning if she meets my glance - terrific!
If not - I look for pooh, and usually I find it! Some of the images are very cute and amusing. I love dogs.
Not fond of the public shaming of anyone or anything now; usually we feel ashamed enough when we disappoint a loved one. Pets included.
I did NOT like the one where the dog was put in the bucket for vomiting. That can’t be helped if the dog was ill and the dog did not look comfortable in the bucket.
Anyhow - Good thing I’m not into public shaming although I have thought about it!
My kitty “ I like to lick the gecko when no one is looking.”
Tequila “ I don’t share balls and I hide them so no one else can play”
Scruffy “I eat cat food”... “I beat on Daisy”
Daisy “I chase squirrels and dirty my moms floor several times a day”
Norm “I ate all the cookies, again.”
^Time to go bake.
Man it is good to be alive!
The past couple of days have been good. The week started off bad, with a real bad day of twitching, but the past few- so good in fact I have wanted to clean my house!
Now, you know that’s good ;-)
I had a friend admit to me that she really thought that the last time she saw me, was going to be the last time she saw me.. and that she was worried I would even make it to surgery, let alone come through it. Wow That is a couple of people now...
To hear the words said out loud that I have thought too many times myself, as I know Norman and Storm have also wondered these past few months.
Thank you, I whisper at least 20 times a day.
So let me tell you ` I feel Lucky to be alive!
No - Let me correct that...
I am BLESSED to be here today!
As I type this Norm came in the door - we both shout - “Friday!!!”
I thought of this toon today while doing dishes and it made me giggle.
One symptom I have had get much worse before surgery was speech - I believe it is getting better - but you know its always words that people catch and laugh at.
For example instead of saying google the other day I say Gooble.. “ I goobled it! “
Norm almost spat out diner! “You Goobled it!?” He shouts back, laughing. Not able to resist YET AGAIN and he knows he is going to get the evil eye for it!
When I stop giggling.
Sigh .. hee hee hee, you have to laugh... & let it go. ALSO embarrassing when speaking with strangers - nice ice breaker it appears as most people find this quite amusing - including me. ;-) Well usually people don't laugh but they smirk or smile.
Time to turn off and go spend some time with my family 2 legs and 4!
I am so happy to be still here doing it.
Have an awesome weekend! Don’t drink and drive.’
If you must & IF you can, choose a healthier alternative. ❤
2013 Is here and I AM Thrilled!! New day, new year -new chance to get it right! I am ready, we have spent the past few days re-organizing my craft room/painting studio/guest room, when I was recovering - all stuff ended up in there - so that when I looked at it I felt anything but crafty! More like closing the door and running. Well it is done now, we also took down the tree and all the decorations! I woke up today to a clean house for January the 1st!
Cartoons waiting to be inked and colored - enough for a couple of weeks easy! I was thinking, I shall call consider last year my wake up call year, with my own health issues & surgery behind me, still on the road to recovery but more determined than ever to get better and be better. For my own sense of balance I will force myself to work on all topics I enjoy and not get consumed by the insanity that comes with Cannabis education. Since so near and dear to my heart - the topic - will be a focus that is for sure! I plan on getting more out of 2013...
More time loving less time dreaming!
More time drawing less time looking at FB!
More time focusing on positive - less time to bitch!
More time playing with the dogs- less time worrying about regular exercise!
Time to draw and then perhaps a bit of painting.
I'd like to start my year off by thanking God for ALL of it.
Every pencil, every piece of paper and every puff.
