Michigan Manages to Make Marijuana Medicine

God bless the State of Michigan.

Not only is it the only state with two peninsulas, it is also the home of the Great Lakes, the largest body of fresh water anywhere on this watery planet.

It is a state full of moving natural beauty where one Ernest Hemingway set many of his best - and best loved - short stories.

Yesterday, Michigan did two great things: The state went blue for President-elect Obama, and it passed a referendum allowing for medical marijuana in Michigan.

Jah, bless us...

Voters approve medical marijuana

DETROIT -- Voters in Michigan overwhelmingly approved a medical marijuana ballot measure -- making it one of a quarter of states to allow severely ill patients to use the illegal drug.

The measure passed in every county. With 96 percent of the precincts reporting, 63 percent, or 2,983,388 people, voted "yes" on Proposal 1, which removes state penalties for registered patients to buy, grow and use small amounts of marijuana. Thirty-seven percent, or 1,778,939 voters, were opposed.

As long as we are on the subject of feeling better, there was this one time when I had the flu. I was living with my engineer/co-producer Jerry Hager at the time. Laying in bed, feeling like I had been beaten with a bat, the only things I could do well were sleep, read and listen to music.

I liked Van Morrison, but I had only really heard the hits...

I proceeded to listen to nearly every CD the man had created - Period of Transition was particularly surprising/great - and a funny thing happened: Van cured me.

Sometimes music can do that.

If you are in the need of some soul soothing, or heart healing, perhaps the tunes on my new project can provide some compassionate care of their own...

Be gentle in your sleepy hands on this world.
Be a killer in Heaven.
