Found a good place to start: www.mpp.org Marijuana Policy Project. I also got ahold of a newspaper editor that ran a story several months back and asked for some contacts from him...still waiting. I will post my progress, or lack of, here.
Contacted (via email) a state representative from northern Idaho that is sponsoring a bill for the next legislative session. It appears that this will be the most restrictive medical marijuana law in the country if passed. Hopefully will get a response as I am not a resident in the guy's district.
I hope the bill will accomplish two things:
1) provide legal access to marijuana to those patients that need it
2) decriminalize out-of-state visitors that are caught with pot but have valid medical marijuana cards
Attended a "Legalize Marijuana" rally today. This was a mixture of mostly college students and older folks like me. Ah those silly kids. Many do not realize that they are not doing the cause any favors by holding signs stating "Let's smoke that Shit!" Priority number 1 needs to be legalizing medical marijuana. Cops were in attendance but did not interfere.
I doubt Idaho will ever legalize marijuana. Once the people in this extremely conservative state see that more legal marijuana does not cause orgies in the streets, etc, there may be less resistance to legalizing it.
