  1. TELL KIDS THE TRUTH ABOUT DRUGS

    I have a 23-year-old son who is a success and has never tried pot.

    But the drug czar ( Gil Kerlikowske ) has a son who was jailed for marijuana sales and assault.

    The drug czar has been an anti drug use zealot for all his life, yet his kid has chosen to smoke a little pot and make money off of it.

    My 23-year-old son was always told the truth about medical use of marijuana. ( I have hepatitis C and use and grow medical marijuana. )

    Kerlikowske’s son grew up with all the lies his father told him.

    I think my son turned out better than Kerlikowski’s did,

    He has never decided to drink or smoke anything. And he is a success! And he votes in favor of marijuana being legalized.

    United States citizens have never had a chance to have a say about what we choose to put into our own bodies; that time is NOW.

    Please legalize medical marijuana for everyone who needs it for their health around the country.

    I am counting on YOU to make it legal for once in my life. Before I die from Hep-C.

    Thank you very much!
