OHIO NORML's support for Ohio Ballot Initiative

medical_leaf_thumbOhio NORML recently had a board meeting with all the Ohio NORML chapters from across the state.  At that meeting we resolved to support the Ohio Medical Marijuana ballot efforts.  Since there are two initiatives currently, we agreed to collect signatures for that ballot initiative that supplied the paper to collect signatures.  NORML in turn will provide our volunteers with clipboards, pens, shirts and participation at various organized events (i.e. parades etc).
 
Also I will publicly support and attend press conference and photo ops for you to use to gain financial support & public awareness.  As I have stated publicly and privately the ballot initiative that receives sufficient funding will appear on the ballot and win.
 
Please note: I am not on either organization's board or committee at this time.
Sincerely,
RRR

NORML's Response to a doctor claiming we represent Drug Dealers

Thursday (5/23/2013) the Columbus Dispatch ran an incredible OP-ED by an out of State prohibitionist doctor claiming we represent drug dealers. This needed an immediate response from NORML.

Below you will find the the letter I sent to Columbus Dispatch Letters to the Editor.  I could have drafted a letter with more facts and rebuttals, but sometime more is less.  I would encourage you to write your own letter adding additional facts to the Columbus Dispatch.   Dr. Ed Gogek commentary  OP-ED

The Columbus Dispatch is a key news media to have our voices heard.  Our State Representative are located right across the street from the Columbus Dispatch.  Please please read his OP-ED and the numerous comments following the article and use the links to Letter to the Editor page,

------LTE to Columbus Dispatch -------

Dear Editor,

Ohio NORML takes exception to Dr. Ed Gogek charge that we represent drug dealers.  It is groups like Dr. Ed Gogek's  "Keep AZ Drug Free" that keep the drug dealers in business. Our organization would put them out of business.

Furthermore according to Dr. Ed Gogek group's webpage marijuana is "not safe for use even under a physician's care". He is citing the law not the facts. Federal and Ohio laws declare that marijuana is deadly, addictive and with no medical use; a schedule one substance.  Note this is in the same classification group as heroin.

Ohio NORML, the State Chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws supports adults' right to use marijuana responsibly, whether it be for medical,  personal or industrial purposes.  Legalization would bring controls, regulations, product labeling and age restrictions.

Dr. Gogek is really supports just the opposite.  Seems like his business interest is to keep the criminals in charge, who do not have to ask for ID when selling to our children.

President, Ohio NORML
