Marijuana: It’s Time for a Conversation

Caroline Gay Welch passed away peacefully at home on July 17, 2008, after a year-long bout with ovarian cancer.

Her life was distinguished by quiet service to her community, including work for the Fremont Public Association and the Community House Mental Health Center in Seattle, Washington.

Speaking out openly about her medical use of marijuana marked a rare instance of willingness to be publicly recognized for her efforts on behalf of others.

With the help of Caroline’s friends and family, the American Civil Liberties Union of Washington was able to donate 364 copies of the Marijuana: It’s Time for a Conversation DVD to public libraries throughout Washington.

Thank you, Caroline, for sharing your story.

    Ha, sounds like an infomercial, unnatural speech, even from the audience.

    Doesn’t make it wrong though.

    Reefer madness rhetoric has been so thoroughly debunked that it is the brunt of jokes.  Yet government goons still spout it, like it’s scientific fact.
