The purpose of The Human Solution International is to support each other through the trials people face as cannabis consumers. THSI members believe standing in solidarity against the unfair treatment of human rights will keep people out of prison for a plant which has been proven to have medicinal and health benefits. Citizens’ tax dollars are wasted on arresting and incarcerating people for cannabis despite the growing number of laws passed.
The Human Solution International believes change begins with education. Members teach fellow citizens about Jury Nullification, their right to say not guilty because the law is inappropriate.
Teaching the public about their rights as a juror can save countless people from unnecessary prison time. If there is no victim, there is no crime. Making sure jurors know they can determine the law is wrong will help to end prohibition.
The Court Support program is a powerful avenue THSI uses to accomplish their goals. Joe Grumbine, CEO of THSI knows firsthand the benefits of community support in the courtroom. Joe, like many other THSI members, is a victim of the drug war. “I enjoy my freedom today in no small part because of all the court supporters that attended the 18-day nightmare of my trial. We will not stop until we have a world where no one gets locked up for a plant.”
Another vital aspect to the THSI is the Prison Outreach and Adoption Program. Prisoners receive letters, emotional support, and money on
their books. Many prisoners have been helped through the adopt-a-prisoner program. Businesses and individuals adopting a prisoner provide regular assistance to the prisoner’s various needs.
Many adoptees assist the prisoner’s family and provide extra support during the holidays. Kristin Flor, Vice President of THSI is passionate about the program due, in part, to her personal experience as the daughter of a medical marijuana caregiver who went to prison because marijuana is still a schedule one drug. Richard Flor died a miserable and tormented death chained to his table after exposure to abuse by the less than adequate medical care in the prison system.
Kristin says, “No one should have to die in prison for our plant. As we pass laws that say it is legal, we still have almost 50 prisoners serving life sentences.”
Locally, board member for The Human Solution International and Head of the Medical Caregivers Institute, Liz McDuffie, has donated a space for both organizations to use for meetings and other needs.
