"Dear Harborside Patient,

Harborside is changing the day of our Senior Support Group to the first Sunday of every month, from 10:15-12:00. We invite you to come join us and know that you are not alone as a senior using medical cannabis.

See friends, make new ones, and learn about how cannabis can help you more, and how you can help cannabis become more legal and respectable.

With Respect and Thanks,

Harborside"

    Cannabis Activism

    The laws that protect Harborside and all medical cannabis patients are the result of decades of hard work by four different generations of cannabis activists. If not for their courage and dedication, we would still be living in the nightmare years of total prohibition and ever increasing repression. Because of the work of these determined activists, patients today enjoy at least a limited degree of legal protection in almost twenty states, with momentum for further positive change stronger than ever before.

    At Harborside, we believe that every patient who is able to engage in activist work, has an obligation to do so.

    Each of us have our own interests, and each of us are gifted with our own unique skills. Cannabis activism provides a great opportunity for each of us to put our own special gifts to work for the good of the entire community. It feels great to do, and is the only way that we will ever see a final end to the laws that still oppress us.

    Whatever it is that you like to do, and are good at doing, can be put to work to further the cause. Like to draw or paint? Then create posters and leaflets and web sites that deliver our message. Like music? Then write a song about cannabis! Good with kids? Then outreach to parents groups, and teach them how regulation of cannabis will protect children. Like working on cars, or just driving them? Then offer your services as a mechanic or chauffeur to one of our advocacy groups—or recreate Henry Ford's hempmobile. Use your imagination. Find a way to exercise your own personal passion, while promoting the truth about cannabis—activism will be more fun that way, and you will be motivated to do more of it.

    Visiting Harborside's Patient Activist Resource Center is a great way for new activists to gain basic skills and learn about the movement—and be rewarded for that participation. Ask our receptionists for details.

    The Harborside Volunteer Defense Corps is a group of patients who have volunteered to help defend The Harborside collective from ongoing attacks by the federal government. Sign up here to learn how you can participate.

    One of the best ways to get active is to volunteer with one of the organizations listed below. They do good work on behalf of the cannabis plant; each in their own style, each with their own area of focus. Get in touch with one or more and check them out; see which of them best compliments your own style and flavor—and get active! If you don't have any spare time to donate, all of these organizations would welcome your financial donations.
