    I review documentaries and “How Weed Won the West” is one of the more recent ones I’ve checked out. It’s a fantastic story about Lee Atwater that goes into great detail about his career as a Republical political consultant and shows the scandalous, corrupt side of his political career. Great film, check it out!

    I am amazed that you would have an ex-tweaker named Dan Murphy aka Dan Ruderalis speak in public in any relation to medical marijuana. The man is a hostile attacker of medical marijuana patients in the San Diego community. And you are advertising that this is a featured speaker. Have you looked at his blog.
    He is a sick individual who believes in threatening and intimidating other people.

    That poor boy. Dannabis. Being attacked for a behavior that even Karen admits is past tense. Probably when he was in his 20s. Ever did something stupid in your 20s? I did.

    I’ve seen Dannabis speak and read his articles. Yep, he has written about another ”activist” and I went back and re-read his blog. Angry yes, but where is the threatening and intimidating?

    I saw what the other activist wrote too. I saw the youtube video audio attack. I even know about the frivolous restraining order.

    But mostly its cause I looked into his eyes and there aint no evil there. Perhaps one day I’ll get a chance to look into your eyes…
