Help get the Mackenzies to Oregon
I've seen dramatic improvements in my overall health, my heart and lungs through juicing fresh cannabis plants. This brings many benficial and medicinal properties that are not achievable through drying and smoking including, if not heated, live enzymes and no psychoactive properties. Even in concentrated forms of oil if not heated possess no psychoactive effects which can be beneficial for a range of ages and conditions. This requires from thirty to fifty plants that will only flower for a fraction of the time for traditional harvesting of buds for oil and inhaling.
I'm currently fighting Scott County, Iowa with the Neccessity Defense clause, since myself, my wife, my son and my best friend were arrested in June of this year because I grew my medicine. Even my parents were charged and all of us are awaiting trial. These sheriff's deputies knew I had cancer because we went through this three years ago with them. They keep on taking my family to jail because they won't abandon me in my time of need.
I have a right given to me by my Creator and recognized by the Constitution of these United States to the right to my life, my liberty and my pursuit of happiness/ownership of property. As things stand now, I need to get moved to California, as it's the only state currently offering a realistic alternative to death for me, and a doctor there confirms and will prescribe what I have found to be effective already. I am on Social Security Disability for about a thousand dollars a month, so paying for medicine is going to be a very difficult as well. Some of the legal expenses include finding a good attorney to help me seek damages.
You can read a little more about my situation at these links, which are two Quad City Times articles about me:

I would appreciate that if you give, do so only if divinely inspired and don't even let the left hand know that the right hand is giving. If you're in a situation that the left hand may come looking for it, then it's not appropriate for the right hand to give. For God provides to those who give, enough to give and enough left over for themselves. If the giver is left with nothing themselves, then it wasn't given by God to give.
Thank you for taking the time to listen to my story.

Benton is in desperate need of cannabis oil to continue treating his angiosarcoma cancer. Oregonians have helped extend his life on our past visits with cannabis oil but now he needs to be there permanently to continue his treatment. We need a place to live with enough room to begin growing his high CBD cannabis. Eventually he, Cody and I would like to become caregivers and growers for other patients in Oregon who do not already have one. This will require a 3 bedroom place, or a more affordable 2 bedroom place, utilizing a garage or shop for his grow. We have been searching trulia.com for places that fit our needs and have found that the most affordable monthly payments are in places further away from Portland than we had hoped for. Nevertheless, any place in the state where we can get Ben started on his home grow will have to do. We have picked a few places that could meet our needs:
Just found this one, it's closer to our friends in Oregon City and not too far from our friends in Portland:

We need financial help with a down payment or even enough for covering rent (when I can find a place with enough room for our growing and living needs that rents at an affordable rate for us) until we get on our feet as registered OMMP growers and caregivers, all three of us, which would help us pay rent or home payments. Benton has experience growing high CBD strains of cannabis that has proven to shrink tumors for certain cancer patients. We would like to add this into the available types of cannabis oil in Oregon, so there is more opportunity for success with some who need this particular ratio of cannabinoids. With your help, not only will we heal Benton but we can go on to help others with this amazing plant! Thank you and God bless you all,
I will do everything that I can to help you get to where you need to be. This is a tragedy and I am furious at what has happened. It is a tragedy that you and your family can get in trouble for saving and improving your life.
none of this should have even happened, come to California and keep fighting!
We're pulling for ya in California
