TP passed today

A friend passed today. I was not real close to TP, but my wife, nieces and in particular, my nephew were very close. He was an interesting person. A psychic and very spiritual. I never felt I knew enough about psychics to understand or appreciate their gift properly, but when family members who I love and trust believe in something and get great value from it, I accept it wholeheartedly. TP provided a friendship and insights that were unique and he meant much to many. As he neared the end, he was suffering pain that of course was treated by the hospital with chemical medications, morphine in this case. It was made clear that he only had a short time left. As he suffered in his last days, he was offered a cannabis infused edible in chocolate form. He was not a previous cannabis user. From what I was told, although he had difficulties eating anything, being able to taste the chocolate was absolutely wonderful. And he had a rare restful night of sleep as well. I share this story hopefully not to be perceived as any selfishness on my part to use the situation to support my opinion or any cause. It was intended for me to share one of what are many similar and even more glaring examples of the compassionate opportunities we see every day that continue to be wasted due to this failed end to Cannabis Prohibition. I cannot say for sure that this one instance made a difference, but I believe it did, even if only for one moment or evening.. Avoiding the possibility of providing comfort and care for others is a crime against basic human decency and without punishment, there must be repeal. And I will continue to do everything possible to stop suffering like this. Today. Not tomorrow, or next month or 3 years from now. TP will be missed by many and never forgotten. John April 2013 — —
