Re: “Gay Pride Tussles with Hemp Expo

It is appalling to read the LGBTQ is opposing The International Cannabis and Hemp Expo. Did the Lesbian,Gay,Bisexual, Transgender, Queer group forget about the HIV/Aids epidemic? This Hiv/Aids epidemic is what started the medical marijuana in the Bay Area. The Gay Pride LGBTQ group is mad at IntChe because the city of Oakland gave The International Cannabis and Hemp Expo a permit for the same weekend as their event? The medical marijuana community has always embraced The LGBTQ Gay Pride community. It makes it difficult to understand their combative response to a public educational event which provides a 215 section for patient consumption. I am shocked to read Pride chairwoman Amber Todd said Pride's board of directors doesn't want to compete with a huge pot party. Is she referring to the patients utilizing the 215 section? I am a patient with a doctors recommendation. I appreciate an area inside the event where I can medicate without having to leave and come back. Without having children around, without being hassled. Other people are sick too, some are in wheel chairs, some have their oxygen tanks with them. Knowing that I am in a specific area designated for patient use makes it possible for me to attend the event. I did not think of it in terms of a pot party. It is really an insulting reference to me and every other medical marijuana patient in California. Could this possibly be considered pot bashing? Amber Todd is worried about promotional integrity, and demonstrates total disregard for the integrity of every medical marijuana in the state of California who medicates. Amber Todd leaves a bad taste in my mouth. It is no wonder The organizers of this event have not responded to any of these comments. The medical marijuana community has always embraced the Lesbian,Gay, Bisexual, Transgender,queer Gay pride group. It is hard to believe they could not share the week end! I did not realize all events happening in Oakland had to be cleared by the Gay, lesbian, bi, trans, queer group. Oh oh there goes the neighborhood! So LGBTQ people do not use medical marijuana any more? They do not go into collectives all over the bay area? It makes it easy to read in between the lines here. The gay pride has lost my support. They are out of their minds. Maybe its hormonal or steroidal or pure stupidity. Who knows? The last Gay pride parade I went to I saw all kind of people smoking pot and that half naked guy with the purple dildo hanging around his neck was passing out brownies, and I was even offered extasy and something called a bump, which was a pile of white powder of some unknown origin. I was also offered Viagra and extasy with an explanation you should take viagra with extasy whether you are a man or a woman because it makes it better. Not to mention the naked people running around. I saw a lot of unusual behavior at that last pride event and I know there is no way I would ever get the 2 events confused. I was offered viagra, extasy, white powder marijuana brownies and lsd at the last Gay pride event. Did they have a permit for this? What did they call it? Were they patients? Oh I forgot it's not a pot party or a drug party its a lesbian bisexual gay whatever party and queer don't forget the queer part. I would not take my child or parent to a gay pride anything. I do not want to be approached by a half naked guy wearing a dildo around his neck while standing next to my mother or child. Or offered a bump! Not the wholesome experience I imagine spending with my family. I will attend the International Cannabis and Hemp Expo without any regard to the Gay pride. The Gay pride needs to cowboy up and let IntChe double the city of Oakland's revenue dollar for the weekend. But they don't want to share the week end!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Amber Todd is pot bashing and needs to get her own integrity in check. The whole thing is ridiculous. And Mayor Quan had a private fund raiser for the Gay pride? When is she going to have a private fund raiser for the medical marijuana community which is The International Cannabis and Hemp Expo? A public educational event that I would take my child, my mother, and my grandmother to. An event sponsored by patients for patients. When is Mayor Quan going to have a private fund raiser for IntChe? I also read another article about distribution. Oakland can't figure it out for some reason. They tax collectives all day long. But they can't figure this one out. Daly City figured it out twice. It's not to difficult to figure out what is happening here. The LGBTQ Gay pride group must need a new meeting center or maybe they need money to pay for their permits for their sustainable event, maybe they need more cash for sex changes and hormone and steroid treatment, or maybe they just need more cash to supply each LGBTQ member with the white powder of unknown origin, viagra and extasy with explanation, LSD, and pot brownies for their event. Who really knows? Amber Todd should put her own integrity in check . Mayor Quan needs to start planning a private fund raiser for the medical marijuana patients were accused of having a pot party. But if you want a real street drug experience I suggest you attend the Gay pride event. There were more drugs there than at some of the best concerts I have ever been to. You will also get to see lots of naked people too. It was kind of like this drug crazed orgy thing and I really don't suggest taking your mother or any children to the this event. People just don't act that way unless they are on drugs. Makes it easier to understand why they are acting this way. Too many drugs and no integrity. IntChe hear I come! LGbtq gay pride cowboy up, quit pot bashing...
