It is with great sadness and disappointment that I am posting this article. It appears that the Mom's for Marijuana Cannabis Quilt has been stolen in Texas. Why someone would do that is beyond me. I hope it gets returned/found ASAP. Now that we have a new logo, I had it on my to-do-list to get a square for The Weed Blog, but it looks like that is going to have to wait. Below is more information on how to help, and a video about the Mom's for Marijuana Cannabis Quilt:
The Moms for Marijuana Cannabis Quilt has been stolen!!!! PLEASE HELP us get it back!!
This MOMS call to action is the most important one we have ever had. At approximately 6pm on April 5th 2013, while traveling from Dallas, Tx. to Austin, Tx. on its way to protest harmful cannabis laws at the Texas State House, our beautiful and powerful cannabis quilt was stolen; When our Texas chapter leader, Tracy Ansley, was stopped for a potty break, someone stole it off of the luggage rack on her car.
The quilt was stolen from the roof of a beige ford explorer, in the parking lot of the CVS drug store at 2222 Thorton Lane in Irving Texas. This is the event it was traveling to: https://www.facebook.com/events/139633239542782/
There are 2 panels that were stolen. Our United States panel which is 18' x24' and our Unity panel that is approximately 8' x 10'. These quilts weigh close to 60 lbs together and are not easy to just carry around.
If anyone has knowledge of the location of our beautiful cannabis quilt please email email@example.com No questions asked! Also call the Irving Police Department at 972-273-1010.
After over 2 years of dedicated work, and more than 50 volunteers, we just want our baby to come home!!!
