To see him- he looks strange- he knows this- we've spoke about it- (remember Russ? I met him at the first EXPO and he has severe glaucoma - his eyes 'buldge' all the time) to talk to him - get him on topic he is passionate about and he can appear 'animated, wild, excited -even a bit crazy' to some.. I have had someone remark "Oh, that guy- he's crazy".
Crazy like a FOX.
Everytime I speak to Russ he educates me - I think sometimes- he has got to be wrong- or I think.. "come on that sounds a bit far fetched- he will say "Georgia! look it up!"... and when I do - he is always Correct. He can tell me Trudeaus phone number at the drop of a hat as well as many other politicians. He calls them before they are even awake! lol
GOOD!!! At least I KNOW Russ give a feather! How many of you reading this -who have cannabis as a medicine or otherwise have ever even thought to pick up a phone/pen to voice a concern or opinion, not just over cannabis- but over anything that concerns you? Us?
He educates me with every conversation on something, makes me laugh and has a GOOD heart. This guy would help anyone.
He told me of others he tries to keep in touch with who hardly give him the time of day - go figure, I remind him- it's blessing when ever shitty people treat you shitty- you learn quickly & learn who to ignore. It is their loss imo.. Russ is far from crazy.
Our last phone call he educated me on John Stewart- No, not the TV fame (my first guess) John Stewart who now is part of a Canadian Cannabis Company.
Read the headline a few times.. is it registering?
OxyContin creator expands into
Canadian pot industry
Are you F*CKING kidding me (beyond feathers!) OXYCONTIN creator - ???!!!
Really?! Are WE stupid or somethin'? This guy?? This guy who is in part responsible for thousands of DEATHS due to OXY? Is he not? NEVER mind the number of SERIOUS DRUG addicts CREATED because of this? DO you support this person?
Will you support this company? Are you uneducated on this... NOW YOU KNOW.
Russ yelled: Georgia, this guy should be in jail, no?
How many lives were ruined because of this guy- how many dead?"
I agree, how many... How many of those top executives will ever see jail time?
Hows many have gone to jail for OXY? Phhhhbbbbbbt. You can guess that.
Here is the Company.. It sure looks lovely... You decide.
There are several choices now- I'm thrilled Russ educated me as did the Globe & Mail.
I would not show them any support. He clearly does not need the money- he made his last employers billions. How much money did they pay out to the families of the dead - pennies.
“Medical cannabis,” Mr. Stewart’s new company said, “could save us from painkillers.”
'Soon, Canada’s chief coroners were raising alarms over the number of deadly overdoses taking place across the country. Again, Mr. Stewart said the company was not to blame, and thoughts of curtailing the drug were inappropriate.
“The answer to abuse of prescription medications is greater education and substance-abuse treatment. The answer to diversion is tough law enforcement, not restrictions on patients and physicians who treat them,” Mr. Stewart said at the time.'
PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS STORY
"Let's be buds"... they say on the www. NO THANKS.
Too bad, hundreds of thousands of Canadians & Americans will never know the healing powers of cannabis because their lives were taken too early due to OXYcotin.
I am sure this facility has good people working at it, I've yet to meet a grower - I don't like- BUT.. still. Education is the key. WHO will you support in this GROWing industry.
Just one more reason for small individually, privately owned dispensaries thanks- at least I KNOW some good people with truly good hearts who want to HELP and have never hurt & for sure never contributed to killed hundeds of thousands with denial and lies and moved on.
*Recently, I attended a social function, only to be 'GLARED' at by a man, I mentioned to my friend - how uncomfortable he made me- had I been alone I'd of RUN. Really, several times- his blatant stare made me turn away from him I was so creeped out by him.
The next day I called my friend to inquire if she knew who this man was - she did.
*His son owns a Government approved LP- Licensed producer. WOW!!!
I guess what I AM doing is hitting nerve. To be looked at like this with such hatred by a STRANGER. She also told me "he's a nice guy" . LOL! I replied "YES, he displayed that to me with his glaring looks." It has been noted and recorded and mentioned to several.
I know the LP - I guess he's upset because THEY have been in the news before - inferior product, I believe... and being angry me is a GOOD EXCUSE. Phhhbt. IF he ever looks at me again like he did - I WILL call the police and ask for a restraining order.
CAREFUL where you spend you $$$.
ONE more reason for small privately owned dispensaries!!!
Remember that shampoo commercial- it worked!
I'll tell two friends and they'll tell two friends and so on and so on and son..
that is how it works.
With Love - Thanks Russ!
TWO people dying every DAY in Ontario from opiates.
