Moms For Marijuana, a grassroots network of parents and other citizens across the world who are concerned with the ignorant war being fought against the cannabis plant, is sending a Cannabis Quilt across the United States in a show of solidarity and unity, demanding the legalization of marijuana.
In just a few short years, Moms For Marijuana
has grown from a MySpace page (started by founder Serra Frank) to 120 chapters in 14 different countries, with more being added literally every week. The group has had more than 20,000 “Likes” on its Facebook page in the last year alone, according to Candace Junkin, Maryland chapter leader with Moms For Marijuana.
The Cannabis Quilt
, originally conceived by Moms For Marijuana member Dana Arvidson of Nashville, Tennessee, is inspired by the tremendous statement and awareness created by the AIDS Memorial Quilt, according to Junkin, who said Moms For Marijuana are working with their members and other marijuana organizations to complete the project.
