The MMM Report was started in February of 2011 as an information source for medical cannabis users in Michigan. Funded by Michigan Organic Solutions, Flint’s first medical marijuana dispensary, the MMM Report grew quickly as the new industry opened up across the state. Although the MMMA legalized medical marijuana, the legality of dispensaries became an issue of conflict. Although some cities embraced the new marijuana businesses and non-profit compassion clubs, many law enforcement and other government persons claimed that transferring marijuana in a dispensary was still illegal. After covering several pro-medical marijuana rallies in Lansing and interviewing several cannabis activists and elected officials, the idea to create the Vote Green Initiative Project (VGIP) was born.
November 4, 2014 will be a big night in Michigan for Cannabis and Freedom! We will sit and watch the returns come in from so many Michigan cities, big and small, rich and poor, urban and rural, Republican and Democrat. All sorts of voters will show that they are American patriots with both brains and compassion; they understand finally that cannabis prohibition is cruel, ridiculous, and ultimately dangerous. It’s dangerous because pot law enforcement constantly pulls law enforcement resources away from solving or preventing real crimes that have victims.
Highest greetings from Amsterdam, still the world capital of the cannabis culture despite all the efforts of the Dutch government to drive the marijuana industry back to the Stone Age, and notwithstanding the incredible gains being made at last in sections of the United States where citizens may finally buy their weed over the counter, without interference by the drug police.

“OK, here we go. I waited until the very last minute ( my editor knows that I went past the deadline.... Thanks you Sweet Lips) to turn this column in. I was really twisted up about what I was going to write about. Over the last few weeks I have received multiple phone calls asking me if I had any influence over this person and that person....Being 6ft 4in and 270lbs and a former bouncer, I can influence just about anyone I know, but I don’t think that is what these people meant. The funny thing is that I agree with many of these people on the subject of activists being out of control. I can’t tell you how many time over my 20+ year career as an activist I have heard of people misrepresenting themselves and who they may or may not represent. There are also the people with grand ideas who don’t want to listen to those of us who have done this before and they just want to keep trying to reinvent the wheel......
Before you know it this summer will be over. With all of the hashy happenings going on it can be difficult to plan your weedy activities effectively. So if you’re planning on coming out to the Mile HIGH State this summer for some good old fashioned American fun here are a few of the incredible events going on in the Centennial State.
It was terrifying to find out that the turn in day for this year’s petitions has been bumped forward to July 29! This is “plenty of time” IF we make a clear plan and implement it every day.
WE CAN DO IT! THIS IS OUR TIME!
WE BE JEDI, THERE IS NO TRY!

Dear Dr. Beth:
I am a registered patient; I use Cannabis for my glaucoma. My best friend of 20 years thinks that I have my medical card for fun and she always wants me to share my medicine with her. She says that it’s no big deal to share and yet sees me without my medicine.
How do I keep my medicine AND my friend?
Sincerely, Gladys from Gladwin
Part 2: The Fall and Rise of Medical Marijuana
“This book should be required reading for all medical professionals, elected officials,
and everyone interested in health and wellness”.
-Dr. Andrew Weil
“Gateway to Health” explains the latest science about the vast usefulness of cannabis as medicine.
Then it details how that immense potential was hijacked, showing “just how cruel and
counterproductive federal marijuana policy is”

Michigan’s Emerging Medical Marijuana Program
Lansing- The Michigan Senate Committee on Government Operations is considering the bills (HB 4271 and 5104) that would legalize dispensaries around the state, ending the four year debate on safe transfers of medical marijuana. When these bills pass, it will allow dispensaries and the production of infused marijuana edibles and concentrates to be licensed by any municipality that approves them. Investment groups like ArcView from California and Colorado have met with several Michigan cannabis dispensary owners who are seeking capital investors and strategic partners. Large-scale commercial medical marijuana warehouses in Detroit are working with several dispensary owners on a joint-venture to research potential markets. Their hopes are to use these new laws, also known as the local option, for medical marijuana to influence municipalities to give them sole distribution rights.
The Cannabis Cancer Project, a Michigan based group that promotes the Rick Simpson mission to bringing this miraculous God given cannabis oil to the people of this world to stop the growth of cancer. Through education on growing for patients and the collaboration of help to create R.S.O available, numerous terminal cancer patients have been given not only more time at life, but also hope for the future. Doug, a patient of the Cannabis Cancer Project, is a direct product of what can happen with the help of a plant oil to see his first grandchild someday.
Highest greetings from the Mediterranean coast of Italy, where I’m visiting my friends Jerry Poynton and Helen Oliver Adelson, the great American painter, at their rustic place in the countryside outside of Tarquiia, Italy, just an hour north and west of Rome.
