It's Saterday night July 23rd. I'm at Ryan Creek Meadows outside Missoula
for Cannafest Destiny. An event sponsored by MTCIA to help raise funds for legal fees and awareness for the Medical cannabis issue. Commercial Hemp, it's history and future was also talked about in length. I am glad to be having a part in this event in a few ways. I have been able to lend a hand in a few areas. Laying out electric cable for the vendors, parking vehicles, assisting a couple of venders with their booths, and even helping one person in a wheel chair to get from the parking lot to the event area. Not to mention getting a chance to speak to the crowd, both from stage and in person. I was blessed with the chance to speak with so many on a one on one basis. Not just to share where I was coming from but also to listen to them and their concerns. It was real nice that so many of them felt they could open up with their thoughts and feelings. They had questions on a large aray of subjects. While at the same time getting to listen to fantastic music from the many live bands. For those in our state who want to shut these people out, writting them of as nut jobs, pot heads, or scourge, trouble makers or any of the multiple jabs the self appointed defenders of rightousness has had for them, I really feel sorry for what you loose out on. What everyone needs to realize is these are people too. They have families, feelings and ideas as well as everyone else. They have needs and concerns as well as issues of thier own to contend with, which have nothing to do with cannabis. All the nay sayers out there need to do these people, themself and the state a favor and take off the blinders they wear. It has been time very well spent this weekend. I am also proud to say that I do and will support the use of cannabis, Medical, Hemp or otherwise. I will actively fight to promote the cause and freedoms they fight for and would as Governor of Montana, veto anything that hit my desk (that very day) which ever harmed a patient or caregiver.
