A column by John Sinclair

I’d like to begin by thanking everyone who made my birthday so much fun this year despite the numbers that have piled up since I was born in Flint in 1941. Friends in Lansing at the warehouse and compassion center at 1200 Marquette and at Matt Abel’s Cannabis Counsel building at 2930 E. Jefferson threw me a pair of parties for which I’ll be eternally grateful, and several special characters gave me the gift of weed which is always more than welcome.

The Cheryl Shuman Experience

by: Jenna Poag

Despite all the sporting rivalry between Michigan and Ohio, during the month of October, we got on the same team to raise Medical Marijuana awareness and welcome a pioneer in the industry back to her birthplace of Ohio and to our great state of Michigan; Cheryl Shuman. Dubbed the “Cheryl Shuman Tour 2013”, Cheryl’s adventures took her all over her home state of Ohio, as well as throughout southern Michigan, fighting on behalf of medical legalization with the Ohio Rights Group.
If you are unfamiliar with Cheryl Shuman, feel rest assured that it won’t last long as she crisscrosses the nation, fighting for Medical Marijuana rights and bringing information to the forefront so that the public can better understand cannabis as a medicine and make educated choices on not only how to vote during election time when these things come up on the ballot, but also allow them to research alternative ways to treat their debilitating diseases and illnesses that would otherwise be treated with harmful and even dangerous pharmaceuticals.

VGIP- Election Time

Ben Horner

This November voters in Ferndale, Jackson and Lansing will have a chance to vote on changes to their local marijuana laws. The Vote Green Initiative Project (VGIP) has played a big part in helping these local campaigns, including last years decriminalization of Flint, Detroit, Ypsilanti, Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. Under the tutelage of political masterminds Chuck Ream and Tim Beck, we seek to undo these draconian marijuana laws in Michigan.
