Most of them funny and I enjoy the ideas. Some It takes longer than others or sometimes and idea will trigger a different toon in the same direction. Some "I Get" & some "I Don't"
just like many people with my comics. YOU can NOT please everyone. ;-)
But the other day I got a request, just a couple of lines that have forever changed my life.
My first thoughts: What?! Seriously? ...What? Oh my God... I asked for more information and it was provided. How sad. How sad all of this is on too many levels.
HOW wrong it all is. WAR on Drugs? More like WAR on WEAK.
Then I had trouble. How could I? How can I draw this easily, seriously and pray it gets the message across. I thought about it all day yesterday. I went to bed feeling very tired (my twitch is constant & frankly exhausting) and a little sorry for myself. Then it came to me. Almost asleep ... quite simply: IT IS so sad on so many levels.
I read earlier this week about a young mom who got sent to jail for 12 years! Leaving 3 kids. FIRST OFFENSE, just over 4 grams. I think it said $30.00 worth. The judge 'justifying' it by 'setting an example'. OF what!? To her kids of how cruel life can be? Selling a HERB that does not HURT anyone. Not a rapist, murderer, human trafficking, child pornographer.. not scum of the earth. A MOM. How much will it cost for her to be in prison for 12 years? What will happen to her children? Clearly that judge does not care. Generations have suffered and will continue to do so because of this war on CANNABIS. A PLANT.
In Canada they are talking about taking away the already legal rights of the sick - so that they can no longer be responsible for growing their own medicine. Forcing the already suffering to resort back to "dealers" Legal or other wise.. Many can hardly afford our prescriptions now. ALSO limiting the types of strains that work for many different people. NOT to mention that it is a PLANT.
HOW many gardeners out there would be devastated if your were told "NOPE - you can not grow another plant." If we say O.K. to Cannabis - what will be next- Tomatoes? The funny thing is that, it is NOT a JOKE.
But come on.. people being executed for Cannabis? PUT TO DEATH?
For a PLANT that GOD placed on this earth. Truly, that is a SIN.
PEOPLE we MUST work together. You don't have to smoke it - BUT IF YOU DO and you don't stand up for your right to smoke a HERB **ESPECIALLY if is is easing your suffering?? Others are DYING for that luxury. NEVER be ashamed of what eases your pain. Those of you who just like to smoke Cannabis, Thank God you you live where you do.
PLANT the SEED of CANNABIS EDUCATION TODAY!
How could I not do the drawing? I know what Cannabis does. I have witnessed it. It is a MIRACLE plant that needs to be researched and Legalized to end all this madness...
over a plant. So sad.
I came up with this drawing. I hope and pray it gets people thinking. That is all I can do. More people have to be educated. **Norm saw the drawing when he came home and said "I think that hanging is a bit much..." I said "Me too!" And then told him the story and what I learned. He also had no idea. So Is it a bit much? NO, it is the TRUTH .
The truth shall set you free.
Please... PLANT the SEED of CANNABIS EDUCATION TODAY!
