Prayers for the family of Abe Hopkins.

A 6-year old boy at the center of the political fight to legalize medical marijuana died early Monday morning, and his mother wonders if passage of the bill might have saved his life.

Abe Hopkins died as his family returned home from a medical conference in Chicago.

Another victim in the worthless War on Drugs. Hope all of the fire-breathing advocates of “locking-them-there-drug users up and throwin’ away the key” are happy! Gateway Drug, Schmateway Drug! There are bonefide medical uses for marijuana. This little guy’s misery possibly could have been lessened. Schmucks…

Look…I’m all for what you say here but this is not the time to politicize the death of an innocent. My fellow activists on this issue ask that all respect the family on this day, and leave the issue politics for the upcoming committee hearings on cannabis reform.

Prayers, good thoughts, donations to various charities in this family’s name are all that are needed this day.
