At least 30,000 cardholders and 5,000 or so caregivers disagree. I received an email from Max Baucus, bragging on the following: "Also in March, I launched a partnership with Bozeman pharmaceutical company LigoCyte to lay the foundation for a major biotech manufacturing facility in Bozeman. This could open the door to hundreds of good-paying jobs in the Gallatin Valley. The news also sent the signal far and wide that Montana is serious about business." So those close-minded people who choose to stay ignorant on the benefits of medical marijuana because of their prejudice, are again putting the benefits to big business (pharma companies) over the needs of the average citizens. This is very, very sad. I am calling for an end to political apathy. I know we're tired of the feeling we just don't matter, but it is time to stand up and be heard. Register to vote. Then, if you really believe all individuals are worthy of respect and dignity, you can have input on what happens to us by speaking up. Sign petitions, contact your representatives, and let them know what we truly want. Katherine Johnston Bozeman - --- MAP posted-by: Richard R Smith Jr.
