Colorado health director warns Georgia families to beware 'miracle cure' marijuana

Families migrating to Colorado for a medical marijuana miracle
http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/57052556-78/piper-annie-seizures-cbd.h...

"The most popular case is Charlotte Figi, the subject of Dr. Gupta’s documentary. Charlotte was diagnosed with Dravet syndrome, an intractable epileptic condition which caused 300 grand mal seizures a week. Like Zaki, no pharmaceutical options worked to control her seizures at all. After the first dose of high-CBD oil, Charlotte stopped having seizures. Within months, she was down to less than three minor seizures a month, with concurrent improvements in cognition and behavior."--Justin Kander, Medical Jane

"Radical successes like these are not outliers – they are the norm with cannabis extract treatment. Dr. Margaret Gedde, a Colorado Springs physician, is tracking 11 new Realm of Caring patients. She reported that 9 of them experienced 90-100% reductions in seizures, apparently within just weeks of starting the oil."--Justin Kander, Medical Jane

Small plane makes emergency landing on Commerce highway

@fixit:

Thank you for posting that. When I first skimmed this article, without reading it, I was concerned that the pilot was Larry Harper.

But I don't think so. He is a combat veteran from Vietnam, flying hueys, a Scout Master, has a fixed wing license, and is extremely active in the Boy Scouts. So thanks a lot for the research. I learned about the flightaware.com today! Thanks!

Gainesville man given prestigious Boy Scout award

PS-I meant no disrespect to you Mr. Harper, if pilot error was to blame. I know you sir. I know that you do check after check after check. I learned a lot from you too sir. Thank you Mr. Harper.

"Don't let doctors, physicians talk over you.

In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.

Be proactive and perform due diligence.

You are giving your power away to an authority figure if you take everything they say at face value and run with it.

You are making yourself available to be victimized by profiteering corporations because they have an ulterior motive and that is profit, and you need to be aware of that."---Gwendolyn Leslie Olsen.

Athens teacher arrested for growing marijuana says it was for medicinal reasons

@Used2baFreeCountry:

Big smile

Haha! Okay, thanks! I'm just feeling touchy today and acting crazy!

I need to watch Monty Python's "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" on youtube.

"Some things in life are bad
They can really make you sad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And......always look on the bright side
of life..."

Any way, I don't wish to take away from Mr. LePage's troubles with my silliness. I know that I get carried away posting image and video after image and video.

Mr LePage is certainly braver than me and showing more courage. I suffer from post-traumatic epilepsy. But I keep talking about CBD oil and edibles with others, and I am thinking of moving to Washington State. But Mr. LePage has not moved, he is staying and fighting. He is a leader in changing Georgia's laws, along with the ones who will serve as jurors in his trial.

I'm really sorry for his troubles, but he is making a stand, and he is tough. I know that he will we looked at as a leader and hero after this is over. I'm still a coward in so many ways in this life, but Mr. LePage is not. I respect him.

I'm just wondering if I have done something to offend you. I used to be with GSP and I was also a social studies teacher. If you serve on a jury, you can vote however you want. All you have to do is not be bullied by the prosecuting attorney, the judge, and most importantly, the other jurors.

Athens middle school teacher busted for indoor marijuana farming

Dearest Mr. LePage,

I'm so sorry for your troubles. I myself am a former state trooper and former teacher. You, Mr. LePage, are a hero to me. You are fighting a fight to free others. If you stay and fight you are my hero. If you leave the police state of AmeriKa, you are still my hero. I sense, from your statement, that you are ready to stay and fight, no matter what the cost. I admire your courage.

Please be advised that most of these people attacking you, do not have the ****s to do it in person. So the **** with them!

But this doesn't have to go very far, if only citizens would understand and take part in jury nullification.

What I advise the readers of the Athens Banner, is to vote, thereby being able to serve on a jury. Once on a jury, do not be bullied by other jurors, the PA, or the judge. It only takes one to stand up!

As for you sir, I guess that you have to decide, or maybe you already have, whether to fight this, perhaps becoming a political prisoner inside Georgia's prison system, or perhaps winning in the court system, but either way, gaining an ultimate victory to bring the healing power of cannabis to others, or leaving the USA for your own health and safety.

I wish you health, and I wish you well. Sadly, most of the readers and most of the residents do not understand the idea of jury nullification.

Fully Informed, Your Rights as a Juror

"It is presumed, that juries are the best judges of facts; it is, on the other hand, presumed that courts are the best judges of law. But still both objects are within your power of decision… you [juries] have a right to take it upon yourselves to judge of both, and to determine the la w as well as the fact in controversy."--John Jay, our nation's first Supreme Court

West Athens adult entertainment club suffers minor damage in weekend fire

There is a natural gas leak right in front of this business.

Just like there was a natural gas leak right in front of Campus View Church of Christ on Lumpkin. I called Athens Gas about that one.

It seems like no one can smell or notice things anymore. Perhaps because everyone is off in their own little world with their smart phones and smoking while at the gasoline station.

If you don't believe me, contact Athens Clarke County and see if they did any work after Atlanta Gas corrected the problem. Or contact Jeff Arthur, Youth Minister at Campus View.

Every time I walk around Athens, I smell natural gas leaks.

Every time I walk around Athens, I see zombies. It's like I live in "Idiocracy".
