MEDICAL CANNABIS, SHOULD IT BE LEGAL?? IS IT HARMFUL?? WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP SEND THE MESSAGE TO LEGALIZE???
What's up, my name is Dre GainezZ. I'm a three time Urban Threshold Underground Music Award nominated  ( 2014 Best Mixtape/Street Album,  2015 Best Live Performance, 2015 Best Midwest Artist) as well as a 2017 Tishay Award nominated artist ( Male Artist of the Year). My debut CD,  "A Step Up From The Rest", was produced in large part by Cavin Yarbrough of the 80's duo Yarbrough and Peoples.




I have, and continue to work with, a co-founder of Death Row Records,  arguably one of the most  influential
and controversial  record lables in history, Lydia Harris.


My recent release, CHAOS ft Indygo Shai, is a remake of the Miche'le classic, Close To Me, written by Eric Wright and Andre Young, AKA Easy E and Dr Dre, along with Michel'le under the Ruthless Record Label.  I have additional music coming out in 2018. Above all else, I'm also an activist for the legalization of medical cannabis.

 I may not get all the medical terms right, but I'm speaking from the heart. I've been an advocate for people with special needs since 2003 when my baby sister was born with Trisomy 21, known as Down Syndrome. I participated with different actvities and events with the Down Syndrome Association of Central Oklahoma and she was in one of my early videos. Love It Most, with a little boy named Reis who has Down Syndrome.

In 2014, I was as asked to headline an event in Choctaw Oklahoma to support a little boy named Austin. Austin has Dravet Syndrome. I didn't know what Dravet Snydrome was, never heard of it.  His parents, Amy Dawn and Jason Hilterbran, explained that Austin could have 30-50 seizures a day and that medical cannabis could really help him to cut down on the seizures.

Medical Cannabis is not legal in Oklahoma so Amy and Jason were working with others, including US Senate Candidate Connie Johnson, to get the question on the state ballot. We didn't get it on the ballot in 2014 so the Hilterbran's moved to Colorado where Medical Cannabis is legal. The Medical Cannabis has greatly improved Austin's quality of life.

I contiunue to work in the community  in various aspects, including putting together and inviting other artist and people in the community to help boost moral for state testing and getting involved in the Relay For Life through the American Cancer Society.

I have been connected with Amy and her family since 2014 and I'm in this cause with her. Medical Cannabis should be legal, period!  Since leaving Oklahoma, Amy has founded the non-profit, American Medical Refugees-Colorado. The group is comprised of up to approx 250 families who have had to leave thier home states to get legal medical cannabis for their loved ones, many of whom are children. Amy has also founded Talk To The 6630507 Hand which is a group that calls out the hipocrasy of US Government Patent 6630507. The US Govenrnment states the cannabis has medical uses, however, it stays on the list as a Schedule 1 drug.

Amy is also the founder of The Millimium Grown Network. The Millnium Grown Network hosted "The Legend of 420" Green Carpet Premier on Septemeber 30th, 2017 in Denver Colorado. I was scheduled as the headline performer, but due to some  technical
difficulities, I did not get the opportunity to perform. This was a major event and many of the cannabis based news outlets were there.
