As a well known voice in the Medical Marijuana Community, I have my share of critics. It goes with the territory. Some of the critics fault me for my stance on the issues, presenting viable alternatives, have a discussion or even a debate where both sides present their positions and leave it to the readers to make up their own mind on the issues.
Recently I've been struggling with critics of another kind. Personal attacks, my home address published, people stating they were going to come by and 'visit' my wife and children. A charge that was made years ago, a charge I was fully acquitted of by a jury (yes innocent people are occassionally charged with crimes as this community knows- that is why we have trial by jury) is being posted all over the net. An old family court issue was brought to light, also years old. The latest is they are posting the link to a physician complaint form to encourage folks to complain about 'you know who'. The latter is simply to harass, and the medical board is not made up of folks that listen to rumor. This is tracable back to a small group of people with much to lose if my position on standards becomes law. The police are involved.
