"We came together around the marijuana, but its not just for the marijuana it’s the community. If the government has its way, and we have to go to a pharmacy to get our prescription filled, then we do it all alone. We would lack that coming together, and that is as important as anything else. Totally important. There is magic in joining together with other beings in suffering. That’s the “joyful participation in the sorrows of the world” that the Buddhists talk about. It’s how you recognize something is bigger than you and it’s a paradigm breaker."
