I became an activist because I saw the wrong in govt telling a citizen what they could or couldn’t put into their own body, especially when it didn’t do what the govt said it would. I was already aware of the shameful acts of the U.S. govt in Vietnam, what they did to Black and Red people, and the ever increasing stranglehold of corporations on the American worker. I saw then, and maintain still, that if we break the prohibition of Marijuana, a lot of other problems are solved.
