Bob Crouse is NOT GUILTY!

Congratulations Bob! Not Guilty on ALL counts!

Jury selection started this past Monday – and even despite the top priority #1 fire in the nation, the Waldo Canyon Fire, which forced  Bob and his ailing mother to evacuate their home directly before the trial, and caused mass destruction to the community of Colorado Springs all week, the trial ensued.

Waldo Canyon Fire. Bob’s trial started 6-25-12. This picture was taken 6-26-12

Bob Crouse – not guilty on ALL counts!

Thank you to the Jurors, many who may have been under threat from fire and remained in their positions. Thank you to the defense attorneys – for working hard, and allowing us to educate them to help fight Bob;s case.

Thank you to the people. Friends, family, and supporters of Bob Crouse.

It has been a LONG hard ride – and Bob SO deserves the rest.

Go get better now Bob. BEAT that leukemia. Teach all them grandbabies how to fish – and enthrall them with tales of Yakky Bob.

HUGEST OF HUGS AND LOVE!

Bob Crouse is a patient NOT a criminal

Meet Bob

Looks pretty good huh?

You may recall him from this post

Bob Crouse misplaced his leukemia

Lab results and everything. Bob has been doing a wonderful job beating his disease.

Let’s hope he can continue to do so.

You see  – the District Attorney in Colorado Springs seems to have it out for medical marijuana – and any folks who may choose to utilize medical marijuana in El Paso County.

Bob’s case goes to trial Monday morning  June 25, 2012.

I hope as many of you out there who can attend – PLEASE DO! Bob NEEDS support from as many folks as he can get – and El Pas County needs to see that prosecuting patients is just NOT RIGHT and a huge waste of taxpayer monies.

I hope as many of you out there who can attend do. It starts Monday and will more than likely go all week for certain. With the 4th of July upon us – they are going to want to wrap that case up before they have to sequester a jury for any major holiday.

There are events all week in Colorado Springs – here is an update I got from Mark Slaugh – with iComply and CSMCC

Next Monday is Bob Crouse’s Rally for Freedom as he goes on trial. They will be picking the jury that morning and it’s very important we rally as many people as we can to support Bob. Colorado Springs needs to know that we, as a community, will not stand for the prosecution of Cancer Patients who use cannabis.

As discussed in an earlier post, Irvin and I had many discussions with many of you over the past week.

We have made six small videos outlining Irvin’s support of Colorado Connect, and why it is important we need your support too. They are all under 2 minutes….easy viewing.

We sincerely hope you will take the time to view, and provide feedback, or any concerns you may have. We value your opinion.

John Suthers needs no help…

making a fool out of himself that is.

I attended the Eagle River Youth Coalition “How Do You Feel About the Impact of Medical Marijuana on Youth?” forum last night in Eagle Colorado (GORGEOUS DRIVE!) with Shan and Chaz Moore, James McVaney, Audrey Hatfield, Mark Slaugh, and Jason Lauve. For asking “How do you feel?” about something, the forum was NOT designed for 2-way communication regarding how folks felt. Questions were to be submitted on 3×5 cards and read by a moderator. Police were on hand, 2 Eagle Police Officers, and the School Sheriff reserve officer. The organizers were very gracious, and gave us space for materials to place to display and hand out.

Chaz, Shan and James all squashed into the lil ol Jeep Liberty I have on loan from the insurance company (great lil rig by the way….I want one!) and got there early and had opportunity to visit with the shop owners.

Sweetleaf Pioneer is the LONE dispensary in Eagle, and what a unique position they are in. They are the only MMD in the city of Eagle. They have had to go to great lengths to maintain their business in Eagle, and have worked diligently with the town council. Well…..Eagle has a population of about 4,000 – and population density wise – I felt like I was right back in Lincoln Montana. Small town, small town mentality.

Some new town council members were elected this past spring – and all hell broke loose for Sweetleaf. Suddenly, they are “evil” and must be banned, after jumping through ALL the hoops and spending all the money. Social ostracism is a huge problem for patients in Eagle, and supporting the MMD has been strong, but very down-played, as the patients do not want to suffer persecution.

Sure would be nice if we could get past all this “judging” stuff and just be who we are huh?

Anyways…….I understand the situation, being from itty-bitty-ville myself. It’s not one you go storming the barn on. If we woulda showed up there waving signs all over and raising a big stink, we would not have done Sweetleaf Pioneer or their patients ANY favors. Please folks, when you go do advocacy, get the feel of the situation before you open your mouth. Trust the folks you are helping with their feel for the community. What works in Denver or Colorado Springs will most certainly not always work in smaller communities. That’s why these folks live here……to get OUT of the city and big city ways.

So…..back on topic. We opted for NOT having a big scene outside – and groaned along with the audience. We had made contact previous to arriving – and pretty much stunned them with fact. They agreed to briefly introduce Chaz at the forum, as it had all been “scripted” before, and we felt lucky for that!

Guess what? You too – can groan along and yell at the screen. As soon as I get the videos uploaded, I will share. I may have to upload them to my MTConnectMagazine acct on YouTube as my CoConnectMe one isn’t approved for anything over 15 minutes yet. Be sure to like and follow them both on YouTube.

I hope you folks will take Southers to task – and do it PROFESSIONALLY. Calling somebody names and threatening them is not conducive to open dialogue.

I believe we all feel it went very well actually. After the hours of lies and mis-information, we were released, and went to the hall where the display tables were.

I have to tell each and every one of you out there – I am SO PROUD of Chaz Moore. That young man has come a long way – and Cannabis is serious medicine to him and he represents as well. The high school superintendant spent quite a bit of time questioning Chaz, and in the end said “I believe of all the people I have met using marijuana, you most certainly are a definite candidate I can support and get behind.”

That was the High School Superintendent. I was SO TICKLED! Chaz was phenomenal and has become a GREAT advocate to speak on patients rights. The youth there flocked to him after the session, and the two young men spent quite a bit of time questioning Chaz and his father. I spoke with them after they left Chaz and the Cheerleader cross country runner girls went to talk to Chaz and Shan. The young man I spoke to wants to be a pilot in his future, and was a VERY sharp young man.

His eyes were opened people. I simply reinforced it with “You’re bright – go check your facts. You can look up anything that was said here tonight on the internet. Go make your own decisions based on fact and knowlege.”

He already had…..after talking to Chaz. This is a young man who just talked about losing his peers to drugs. Not as in death, as in pals, and change of interests. Seeing and meeting Chaz was monumental to him, and witnessing one of Chaz’s seizures cinched it for those kids. I really enjoyed listening to them question Chaz and Shan. The girls were very concerned about what Shan goes through being Chaz’s parent….and asked GREAT questions!

SO SO PROUD OF YOU CHAZ! You were a ROCKSTAR last night!

Keep it up buddy!

Videos seem to be loading on the MTConnectMagazine Channel……More coming soon!

I hope you folks will pat Chaz on the back. That young man is going to do WONDERS for our community. He is coming a long way – and has more at stake here than MANY of us. If you ever see or witness one of Chaz’s attacks – you will never question him again. EVER.

It kind of bothers me that anybody would ever question treating children……with what the alternatives are out there. If we TRULY believe Cannabis is safe and effective, why would we not want our loved ones or most precious to have the benefit? Cashy Hyde is on my mind and in my heart every day with his brain cancer, please meet him at http://www.cashhydefoundation.com

He is my special boy….and so is Chaz. THEY are who will truly be our emissaries……as children will be who change our future.

Kids are NOT stupid……it’s about time we treated them with respect and give them knowledge and power to educate and win. Those kids from the DADS campaign last night convinced me of that. They’re eyes were opened……WIDELY.

Thank you Chaz……love ya buddy and proud to have you on board! If you folks don’t know Chaz – or need more info – please visit his site here: http://www.iambillsmith.com/
