Before Deciding

When our representatives are making important decisions that impact all of our lives I believe it is important to ask one basic question before making
those decisions,
Is this good for
the children?

Just imagine what our world would be like if that question was asked prior to making decisions about going to war, the environment, education or healthcare.

On Monday's show of  5/23/16 guest Lynette Shaw shares how she earned her title as Godmother of Medical Cannabis Dispensaries with her dogged compassion and willingness to help patients in her 18 year long legal battle with the Federal Department of Justice and DEA.  Lynette with her attorneys were able to keep the doors open 11 years with appeals to President Clinton's administration's lawsuit, U.S. vs. Marin Alliance for Medical Marijuana and Lynette Shaw, to close the first dispensary in California and the United States to receive a local permit.   Finally on April 12, 2016, after 5 years in seclusion for fear of reprisals by the DOJ against her colleagues and friends, Lynette received word that the DOJ and DEA dropped their challenges after being berated by the 9th Circuit Judge for denying Lynette her Constitutional Rights as afforded by the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment that denied budgeting the DEA's attack on Medical Cannabis Dispensaries in those states like California that have laws protecting its use.

Visit  the Community Media Center's CMediaLab website for the cable TV broadcast schedule for the current month where you can Find "Women's Spaces" show slots and Elaine Holtz Special show slots.  I find the browser Find function works better for searching the page rather than the Search of CMedia.   If you click on the show's title on the schedule a new window comes up with an online video (if available) and the schedule of the broadcast of the particular show over the next weeks.
