So recently I posted a blog about an article in the Parade magazine about what people earn. On the cover of the Parade was a spot about DeeAnn Cushman from Dallas Oregon (Link to her spot here. http://www.parade.com/news/what-people-earn/slideshows/real-people-salary-2010.html?index=42) . DeeAnn was nice enough to comment on the blog I posted:
“Hello, In response to the nice blog you posted. My name is DeeAnn Cushman. I work for an organization called MAMA. MAMA And I PROVIDE medical marijuana patients with education about… Check out the website. Thank you for your intrest become educated.” (http://www.mamas.org/)
So DeeAnn works for MAMA (Mothers Against Misuse and Abuse) which is a non-profit whose goals are (per their website http://www.mamas.org/goals.htm ): “to provide current, scientific drug education to all ages, to offer social and recreational alternatives to drug use, to promote better communication between policy makers, educators, law enforcement, service providers, seniors, parents and youth. To question techniques of advertising all drugs and advertising’s effects on the entire population.”
So now we have cleared up that DeeAnn is not selling medical marijuana but works for MAMA as a provider of medical marijuana education and information. I am still left to wonder who put that she is a medical marijuana provider instead of a medical marijuana information provider in the Parade article. Maybe someone at Parade owes her an apology?
