They took her child away
You won’t believe the story of Shona Banda. Let me tell you, I didn’t at first.
Shona lives in Kansas and uses medical marijuana to treat her Crohn’s disease, a chronic condition that causes her debilitating pain. Medical marijuana is the only treatment that relieves her symptoms.
Last month, her 11-year-old was forced to sit through a long D.A.R.E. propaganda seminar, where he was told marijuana has no medical benefit — completely contrary to established science. So he spoke up. He made it known to his classmates that medical marijuana was helping his mother battle a debilitating disease. What happened next is terrifying.
The school called the police, who then held and questioned him at school. Then Shona’s house was searched, her medicine seized, and her son was taken away.
This all happened in Kansas, just one state over from Colorado, where marijuana is legally bought and sold every day. We cannot let this stand.

Shona’s son spoke up against anti-science D.A.R.E. propaganda, and the state took him away from his mother.
Help us fight back against this archaic drug war hysteria.
