Not One Tear Forgotten

A Living Memorial
To the Victims of the War on Medical Cannabis
American Alliance for Medical Cannabis
October 2002

You are about to read a very long list of names. Each of these individuals is or was engaged in the front lines in the battle for the right of the sick, disabled, and dying to use medical cannabis. Some of these people are in exile. Others are in prison or otherwise part of the criminal injustice system. Some have died. All will be remembered. Not one tear will be forgotten. Not one cry of protest will be unheard. Not one life or sacrifice will be ignored. Readers are encouraged to submit new names by writing info@letfreedomgrow.com. Those on this list who wish to be removed may do so by writing the same address. Corrections are welcome.

Each of these individuals has family, friends, coworkers, and loved ones. Each experienced suffering. Like so many of us, we wonder if our anguish has any redeeming qualities. The truth is that the courage of those on this list and many, who read it, speaks quietly but the stillness shows strength and is an example to the nation.

Our thanks go to Michelle Aldrich for helping compile the initial list. Tragically, many more names are likely to be added before compassion and reason finally triumph over ignorance and prejudice.
