What an incredible start to this organization. receiving a lifetime grant from Google is very very difficult and requires some pretty hard analyses before Google will let go of these kinds of awards. I believe it is a $250,000 a year renewable grant. What we have here are some pretty savvy people that in not dabbling.

I like calling the plays first, so let me say this, "What we have here is the organization with the power and personnel that will be making the final push in legislation and public information that will lead to national reform for medical usage of marijuana. - Sorry about that long run on sentence.
