This is regarding those trying to say voters are so stupid we don't
know what we're voting for, although you have proven we didn't know
who we voted in. At least 30,000 cardholders and 5,000 or so
caregivers disagree.

I received an email from Max Baucus, bragging on the following: "Also
in March, I launched a partnership with Bozeman pharmaceutical company
LigoCyte to lay the foundation for a major biotech manufacturing
facility in Bozeman. This could open the door to hundreds of
good-paying jobs in the Gallatin Valley. The news also sent the signal
far and wide that Montana is serious about business."

So those close-minded people who choose to stay ignorant on the
benefits of medical marijuana because of their prejudice, are again
putting the benefits to big business (pharma companies) over the needs
of the average citizens. This is very, very sad.

I am calling for an end to political apathy. I know we're tired of the
feeling we just don't matter, but it is time to stand up and be heard.
Register to vote. Then, if you really believe all individuals are
worthy of respect and dignity, you can have input on what happens to
us by speaking up. Sign petitions, contact your representatives, and
let them know what we truly want.
