Thursday’s show on Sensi Life Radio – What is up with NORML
I have been a supporter of NORML for nearly 4 years, so don’t get me wrong, I love what they do most of the time. But there have been a series of events in the last year that I call in to question.
On our next show Thursday July 7th 2011 @ 3pm I will be discussing the issues that have have with NORML lately.

I am not interested in creating discord. I am just curious why WA NORML paid more attention to SB 5073 this year than I-1149, and why I didn’t see much happening from National NORML in regards to support I-1149.
Im not saying that they didn’t support I-1149 at all. I am just saying WA NORML didn’t even have a Sensible Washington banner on their site until late March, and in live interviews with Russ Belville, Kevin Oliver didn’t even mention I-1149, instead he just gave full support (no opposition what-so-ever) to SB 5073, as did Alison Holcomb and Russ Belville.
SB 5073 turned out to be as bad as I was saying it was going to be. Washington patients in fact did not get any more rights, and in fact lost a few in the process (via section 301).
So what is going on? I would like to know.
Here are some videos that I have made about this recently;
