Selected quotes:


IMMLY's Founder Jacki Rickert:

"I don't think it should be anything between the government or Supreme Court. It should be between a doctor and patient. I will never give up the fight to get patients the medicine they deserve. I don't see any reason for bothering patients that aren't bothering anyone else. -- Jacki Rickert, "Medical marijuana ban upsets users" Eau Claire Leader Telegram, June 7, 2005.

Director of communications Gary Storck:

"Lately, George Bush has been saying his nominations 'deserve a simple straight up and down vote' in Congress. Medical marijuana legislation deserves the same, both in Congress and at the state level." -- Gary Storck, "Medical Marijuana: Should It Be Legal?," Wisconsin State Journal, June 7, 2005.

"In a day where we have a war against terrorism, the fact that even one federal agent can go after a sick person, or go after a dispensary that supplies them with medicine is a serious misuse of our resources. Taxpayers should be aghast that our government would have any kind of priorities that would put sick people before a terrorist." -- Gary Storck, "Madison Man Continues Fight For Medical Marijuana," Channel 3000 & channel3000.com, June 7, 2005.

"And I intend to continue using it, Supreme Court decision, or not, this is about my health, it's not about government policy, and I'm not going to go blind because the Supreme Court made this ruling," -- Gary Storck, "Higher Court Rules on Medicinal Marijuana," NBC Channel 15 Madison & http://nbc15.madison.com.
