About Time!

by Amanda Reiman, Drug Policy Alliance

“On 01-12-17 the National Academy of Sciences released a comprehensive review of research on marijuana and concluded that marijuana does indeed have medical value.

The review concluded: “One of the therapeutic uses of cannabis and cannabinoids is to treat chronic pain in adults. The committee found evidence to support that patients who were treated with cannabis or cannabinoids were more likely to experience a significant reduction in pain symptoms.

This is not the first time that the scientific community has made claims about marijuana as medicine.”

Pesticides & Cannabis Consumer Product Safety

A cautionary tale: a cannabis consumer contacted me saying a gram of dab he purchased at 502 recreational pot store in Spokane, WA tasted like “burnt plastic”. He was very curious about what he was ingesting. I suggested he take sample to Trace Analytics for pesticide screening.

The results were shocking. This particular product tested positive for Metalaxyl, a state approved fungicide -however, 200ppb is the “Upper Level of Quantification” (considered acceptable trace amount) but this sample came in at a whopping 94,786ppb! I talked with the grower/processor and they were very cooperative BUT my warning to Medical Marijuana Patients – read the labels, ask about pesticide testing.

No one should be sucking up pesticides or fungicides. Most (good) growers are paying attention and are working to produce safe, clean medical-grade cannabis products.

Consumer Beware!

Miracle Baby

An 8-month old boy was diagnosed with a massive, centrally-located, inoperable brain tumor.  His father did extensive research and started giving the baby daily doses of 3.8% CBD tincture on his pacifier.  Chemotherapy, radiation and surgery had all been recommended by oncologists but after 4 months the brain tumor was gone. At 8 months of CBD therapy the brain structure had returned to normal.   Watch video

Anyone who has ever grown marijuana knows that bugs can kill or damage an entire crop. In a matter of days mold, different types of mites, thrips, fungus gnats, aphids, and other nasty buggers can wreak havoc in the entire garden causing heavy financial loss.

The WA State Liquor & Cannabis Board approved over 200 different pesticides growers can use to keep the bugs at bay. Big problem. Random sampling of cannabis sold in retail stores are testing positive for pesticide residue. Some industry insiders estimate that possibly up to 70% of the pot legally sold in stores have some level of pesticide contamination.

Adopt a Felon

We are continuing the project activist and master grower David Van Scyoc and we were working on when he died suddenly. He was a felon and we decided that we need to help people caught up in the War on Drugs to get their records expunged of marijuana-related felonies. Read More  Are you a felon looking to get your felonies off your records? Maybe we can help. Read More

Sweet-David-1Mr. Miracle Man “David Van Scycoc” is one of those souls you know you will never cross again. When he passed last year, I could only think of myself. How much I miss him, how much he was teaching me, how many in-siders he introduced me to. Poof!  He was gone and I have mourned him as a Brother. We worked so hard to get to this point. He was a soul I will never cross again. I thought he was handsome and beautiful and kinder than anyone I know.  Good Travels, Dear David.

War on Drugs Honorable Mention: the Kettle Falls Five 

Update: The Federal trial of the Kettle Falls 5 resulted in a guilty verdict for “manufacture of a controlled substance”. The Feds failed to convict them of conspiracy, intent to distribute and weapons charges which have a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years in Federal prison. Not guilty! This is a win for all Americans who find themselves in the Federal justice system for growing plants. Thank you Kettle Falls 5 for making legal precedence.

Fastest growing cannabis users are baby boomers & senior citizens.

by Cheri Sicard,


“Despite the stereotype of marijuana users as burned-out teens munching on Doritos, today, the fastest growing demographic of cannabis users is actually baby boomers and senior citizens. This increase of use is for good reason—cannabis has proven itself to be a powerful weapon against the ravages of age.   Read More


Please DONATE:  “Take Back the Medicine: Medical Marijuana Hotline” GoFundMe Campaign.

Medical Marijuana patients need your attention and support in WA state. WA has no legally approved Medicinal Cannabis. Rick Simpson’s Oil is now illegal and unavailable.

It is shameful that the Medicine (Charlotte’s Cure, etc) is available in other states but not in WA because of petty. absurd laws and regulations, backward politics, SB 5052 and the continuing War on Drugs.

All who donate to help me continue doing my service with the project will get a display ad on both this website and also on

DCB future service: I have been a graphic and paper artist for as long as I can remember. For 50 years I have been meticulously cutting images from magazines & (yes) books; I have 1000′s of every sort and size.  I also have amassed a huge amount of high-end scrapbook paper and card stock.  I have enough materials, supplies, tools, rubber stamps, everything we need to open a specialty paper workshop making products by hand and donating them to MMJ patients … and parents. Our goal is to raise enough $$ to hire our own lobbyist to represent our interests in Olympia.

Why are politicians and bureaucrats making our medical decisions for us anyway?

More to come.

 Where Will the $$ Go?

” In Washington state, 80% of the taxes that come in from sale of cannabis is earmarked for prevention, treatment, research and evaluation of the implementation of I-502.  Colorado, on the other hand, has targeted the first $40 million in tax revenue for school construction.” Maria L. LaGanga
