Ending Prohibition is so Important for Humanity

Ending prohibition is so important for humanity and most of us have no clue as to why that is.. I am going to put the knowledge that I have been blessed to acquire in as easy to understand verbiage as possible… 
Each one of us have endocannabinoid systems in our brain for the health of our electrical connections from our brain to our bodies and our immune system to support our organs and assist in fighting germs and common colds..  Now with that being said cannabis and hemp have the same cannabinol systems that we do… But there is a difference in hemp and cannabis that must be clarified.. in order for cannabinoids to be medicinal for us , they must carry 15% or higher cannabinoids in their cannabinol profile… the hemp plant only has 3-5 % cannabinoids in its cannabinol profile .. The cannabis plant has 20 +%.. So cannabis oil extract is MEDICINAL.. Hemp oil extract is NOT it is however, NUTRITIONAL.. 
So with all of that being said it only costs about $5 a gram to make this life saving oil, not including all of your one time expenses for cultivation.. 
We live a life of convenience and it is killing us.. We treat our mind and bodies neglectfully and expect them to function up to par.. We are a society of poor eating habits and lack of exercise.. We are a society that has been dumbed down by lithium chem trails we are prescription drugs addicts and fat Monsanto (ites) .. 
We need to take accountability for what we LET happen to us and CHANGE it.. WE NEED TO START LIVING THE CHANGES WE WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD.. 
Anything other than ENDING PROHIBITION is GENOCIDE.

It’s that time again! 

Come September, The Human Solution international will be having our 3rd elections! 
According to our bylaws, every two years,The Human solution international 
THSi ) will hold an election for every position including President/CEO, Vice President, Treasurer/CFO, Secretary, Chairman of the board, and all board members.  Although, The Human Solution was originally incorporated in 2009 as a non profit, we went through a lot of changes and even closed the corp down only to rename it and reincorporate. in 2014 we received our IRS determination letter establishing The Human Solution international as a federally recognized 501c3 tax exempt non profit. We decided to have a very large and inclusive board and the organizing members agreed on the positions for the first term. 
   
As it turned out, a mammoth board and large executive team was too much to ask. by September 2015, a lot of growing pains had run their course and we had cut the board in half and the many of the leadership positions were changed but THSI has a lion’s heart and continued to move forward. In Sept 2016 we held a full and open election of all positions and established a strong leadership team. 
   
September 2018 is quickly approaching and our election cycle is once again upon us. We have recently voted in our protocols. First of all the nomination process: 
1) Any individual that has been a member of The Human Solution in good standing for at least two years qualifies for an elected position. If a member wishes to run for a position and is in good standing but less than two years they can request variance to the rule and it will be put to a vote. 
2) Any qualifying member can nominate themselves or another qualifying member for any position however if a member is nominated by another, the nomination must be accepted to be valid
3) All positions are voluntary (there are no salaries or stipends of any kind issued to elected positions) 
4) If a position is left without a nominee, the position may be left vacant until such time as a qualified nominee steps forward
5) Membership in good standing means that either a member is current in annual dues or qualifies as a “hard way member” an approved “volunteer member” or a lifetime member. anyone that has let membership lapse will not be eligible to run, nominate or vote. 
6) We will be creating a “closed group” on Facebook for the purpose of this election, there will also be a page on the website that will have the election information. 
7) The poll will run for 1 day and an absentee ballot will be made available to anyone that will be unable to vote on the day of (TBD
8) All active members should have an active membership card. (if you qualify for membership but have not received a card, please contact me.) 
To sign up to become a member visit Membership
I realize that over the years, many people have payed dues one time or more and even more people have volunteered at one time or another and consider themselves members but as with any member driven organization, you either are a current active member or you are not. 
If you feel that you have volunteered a sufficient amount of time/effort to qualify as a member, please reach out, no one will be excluded from this process that truly wishes to be here and has put in an effort.  We will be holding a membership drive up till the day of elections and encourage everyone interested in ending cannabis prohibition once and for all to join us in our effort. We are changing history and we welcome you to the team
thank you in advance for being a part of the solution! 

Blessings in solidarity

Medical Marijuana Patients under attack

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Medical Marijuana Patients under attack

Celina, Ohio (December, 28 2017)- For medical marijuana patients Peggy and Glen Keeling life has been an anxiety filled nightmare since they were “busted” on October 31, 2017. The Keeling’s are a soft spoken, community oriented, married couple with kids- your typical family next door. Despite being a legal medical marijuana patient Glen was held on a bond that they had to raise money to pay until November 22 and now must wear an ankle monitoring bracelet.

Glenn has been treating Crohn’s disease with medical marijuana and Peggy has been treating Multiple Sclerosis as well. Both of these diseases can and often are debilitating on their own but more so when you add the side effects associated with pharmaceuticals often used to treat them. Glenn and Peggy chose cannabis as a legal option for relief. The state allows the couple to possess 450 grams and they were well within the guidelines, possessing only 306 grams of cannabis medicine.

Despite the Keeling’s abiding by their state medical marijuana laws both are facing charges of felony 1 manufacturing, 2 counts of  felony 3 possession of hash, felony 5 possession of marijuana and felony 3 child endangerment

Glen’s Pre-trial conference is January 3rd at 10:00am and Peggy’s Preliminary hearing is January 17th at 2:00pm. Both will be at the Mercer County courthouse located at 101 N Main street Celina Ohio. Please if able, come to court and lend your support – no one should have to stand alone.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Call to Action From POW Craig Cesal

 

FCI Terre Haute, Indiana (October, 15, 2017)- Craig Cesal has reached out to THSI to get some support in regards to lack of food and basic hygienic supplies As for the lack of food Craig wrote,.“…although the FBOP prison population has diminished from 221,000 prisoners in 2015, to 185,530 last week, the food supplied to us has been greatly diminished.”

Many of you are aware that Craig is an insulin dependent diabetic and speaks about how the food portions and meal times affects his and other diabetics blood sugar levels, “ It is notable that the small breakfasts at 6:00AM will not keep insulin-dependent diabetics, like me, with enough blood sugar. Lately, we often experience hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) about 9:00AM, while at work, and are not served lunch until 11:00. This is problematic for me and all diabetics here.”

Lastly Craig’s own thoughts on basic hygiene,“Why the FBOP has significantly less inmates, a greater budget, but they have cut about everything we get.  We only get three rolls of toilet paper per week for two inmates. It often doesn’t last. Only five pairs of underwear and socks, but no washing machines. I don’t ask for luxury, but I don’t believe we are seeing our actual food and hygiene needs met.”

You can email and call the prison to express your concerns at THA/ExecAssistant@bop.gov  or Phone:812-238-1531.

July 29, 2017 Potential

Heading home after a whirlwind outreach trip, my head is spinning with the potential that has been spawned from the past three days. As often happens, things turned out a little different from original plans but so much more productive than expected… I had planned to attend an attorney’s conference in hopes of gathering some support for THSi’s legal clinic but this did not materialize. Instead, I got an opportunity to speak before a group of activists and industry folks alike… I wrote about this a little and more is to follow. I attended a golf tournament sponsored by the cannabis industry.

Wow, I just flew over an area that was recently burned… looks like the moon out there.

This tournament was quite an experience. A group of us that I will get into much more were here as guests. None of us were golfers but we all had. A common thread. We were here to support the event and meet some folks. I was blown away as some years ago I participated in a similar event in California. Although California led the way in passing a law to allow some protection of cannabis use, there was no public consumption allowed at the event. I remember that we were taking half of the proceeds raised and donating to a cancer charity. This was 2012 and we couldn’t find a charity willing to receive funds from a cannabis event…

This one was so much different as there was open consumption on the course in fact most of the sponsors were giving out samples of cannabis products and concentrates. I am so blown away by the combination of good work and bullshit that exists in this world of regulations. Products purposely mislabeled because “the public just doesn’t understand” to testing facilities that are not ISO certified bragging about their cleanliness and abilities.

I had the good fortune on this trip to meet some veteran activists and advocates that shared some similar experiences with the flakiness , arrogance, nepotism, scandal and skullduggery that is so prevalent in the cannabis “movement.” We shared horror stories, laughed, and got to work. I was so moved by the quality of character, experience, drive and willingness to work together that I took the risk of being pushy at a breakfast meeting and took point on creating a coalition and a project. 
I am actually moved while thinking about this as it is so similar to the genesis of The Human Solution only on another level, you see THSi was formed as a local solution with a greater purpose, this group is already nationwide and is going for the end game from the start. Yes the end game of a world where No one is imprisoned for a plant anymore. We had one of the most productive meetings that I have ever been a part of and created a 5 page document outlining our mission, goals, team both current and future. We have a plan to reconvene in Atlanta for the netroots convention in a couple of weeks and I am very eager to share more of this in the near future. I am so very excited to be working with these folks, we all agreed that what we have been doing just hasn’t been working well enough and the time is ripe with all of the political and global antics as well as a rise of social discontent! As always I am deeply grateful to everyone that has either purposefully or casually become a part of the solution!

This is a time with likely the most possibility to do the most good towards reaching our goals, please reach out to me if you are willing to help in any way!! 951-436-6312
Blessings
Joe
