    Hey every body i am recently a new medical user here in the great state of alaska. i actually got my card refered to me by a doctor in valdez alaska. but there are many out there. If you live here in the state of alaska i would like to invite you to reply to this if you would like to help and join me in the fight to make dispensaries legal in the state of alaska and up the possession limits for medical users.
    being in a somewhat remote location there are a lot of reasons it may not be reasonable to grow and possess only one ounce at a time such as major power outtages for you indoor growers and extremely cold winters that do not allow you outdoor growers to grow and possess enough to make it through the winter therefore requiring most growers to break the law to medicate when there really not doing anything wrong. anyways i could go on for hours about this but if you see this reply and we’ll get started on the legislature that Alaska needs to make this work. thanks for reading and hope to hear from you in the future

    My reasons do not sound as serious as yours. I have insomnia, ADD, PTSD, and an absorbtion problem.

    I cant take regular meds because of my absorbtion problem and even though ive been told by others to just up the dosage, i feel like even if my body isnt absorbing the meds properly it can still do damage (as ive been told by my doctor.)

    I am absolutely positive that marijuanna would help with my ADD and insomnia from an experience in which i got a “contact high” Now, i do not use marijuanna because of the laws, but if i were to obtain a medicinal card i would use it for my medical problems only.

      Hi ; I just suggest you get yourself some seeds from british colombia sent to you ,you can lookj up the name of seed banks ,and grow it yourself and dont tell any body you do so.

      The alaska laws make you break them because if you are only aloud in you possession 1oz.of dried marijuana at a time then they are not considering the fact that when you harvest you will have more than one ounce then. So you are breaking there law right then ! That is stupid bullshit .What,is the law going to store it for you ? I dont get it ? No one can grow plants that continue to bud and live long enough to give you an once every time you need one.

      Seems they are setting every one up for breaking there law and not giving people the right to grow there on, or purchase it in any sane reasonable manor !@! Or they just have not realized that there on laws do not enable a person to grow plants but at the same time not posess the product !! Absolutly ludicrous!! Fuk’em ! Do it any way ,if they are so lame if they want to enforse a law at least they can get there head out of there asses and get some people in California to help them write up[ some reasonable laws for possetion!! In the mean time people are suffering at there lack of understanding ! Or are they doing this so they can prosecute people at there disgreation ? What ever, it is wrong !!! I would bring this point up strongly!!!

  • Our documentary about outdoor marijuana growers give people “the real deal.” We have been documenting the most important of American political/medical topics since 2005. Patients who need medical marijuana to function in this society and overcome their debilitating pain, also need to know how to grow so they don’t have to waste their hard-earned money and go on some county risk which will effect their insurance.

    See a year in the life of several different patient growers and spread the word about Legalization.

    I have crohn’s disease. I live in Pennsylvania is there any way that I can convince the senators of PA to get it medically legalized?

    Could you guys contact the President and his people and send them the information that you guys have on the illnesses that it helps. It could make a huge Impact on what you guys are trying to do. Plus tell them about how much money it could make in taxes for the government.
