The Fight To Fire The Cops Who Shot Stephon Clark Is Still Raging (HBO)

It’s been nearly a year since Sacramento police shot and killed Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man, in his grandmother’s backyard. Sacramento has not forgotten.

This week the Sacramento district attorney decided not to charge the officers, who shot Clark seven times, mostly in the back. The DA said Clark had drugs in his system and suggested he’d been suicidal.

That triggered five days of protests in the streets and 84 arrests Monday night. “We expected the DA not to prosecute. We didn’t expect her to convict Clark of his own murder,” one of the protesters said during Monday’s march.

Cannabis Connecting the Troubled in Northern Ireland | Cannabis News Network

Clark French, the founder of the United Patients Alliance, traveled to Belfast for the first ever held Medical Cannabis Summit in Northern Ireland. A landmark occasion!

His exclusive report for Cannabis News Network shows that cannabis can bring people together in a conflict area.

The conflict in Northern Ireland during the late 20th century is known as the Troubles. Over 3,600 people were killed and thousands more injured.

Over the course of three decades, violence on the streets of Northern Ireland was commonplace.

In 1998 The Good Friday Agreement restored the self-government to Northern Ireland and brought an end to the Troubles.

Clark heard a lot about how cannabis is healing some of the division here and was really interested to find out how cannabis is helping to bring these 2 historically divided communities together.

Like the story of Neil Paine, a former British soldier serving in Northern Ireland in the past. He is using cannabis for his trauma and pains. He is now at ease amongst fellow cannabis patients.
Patient stories and seeing cannabis help people in need runs deep in Northern Ireland.

There is no doubt that people from both communities are seeing the benefits to their friends and family from consuming cannabis.

Criminalization of Cannabis: The Human Toll

As long cannabis is still illegal to get access to, many people are hurt because of that illegality.

The international premiere of the documentary; “Grassroots: The Cannabis Revolution” was held in Dublin. For three years film-maker Dale Beaumont-Brown followed his cousin Clark French, a young guy suffering from multiples scleroses. The documentary was first shown in the Norwich (UK) where it immediately has won the Grand Jury award for Best Documentary!

Clark is founder and director of the United Patients Alliance, a support and campaigning community for medical cannabis patients in the United Kingdom.

Their battle, to change the law and allow legal access to cannabis, has been heard. Recently in a major inquiry led by a group of MPs and peers has concluded that cannabis should be legalized for medical purposes.

In Dublin, Clark met Martin Kelly. He also uses cannabis for medicinal purposes to control his epilepsy. Martin is a member of CISTA, Cannabis Is Safer Than Alcohol. A political party in the United Kingdom proposing a new approach to drug reform.

Because of the poor quality on the illegal drug market, Martin felt something needed to be done. He became skilled in testing and producing the medicine, for himself and to help others.

In march 2015, Martin’s house was raided by twenty-four policeman. Now he faces 3 to 6 years of imprisonment. This means his 6 years old daughter will be taken away from him and being a single parent, he will lose control over her.
