Be Well, Eric L. Salerno


Eric Salerno is a Salem-News.com writer from Butte County, California. His background is with State and Federal Agencies assisting in recovery efforts in disaster stricken states.

In 2008 he began advocating for medical marijuana in his home state. This journey began after the supervisors in his district of Butte County enacted a moratorium on legal Prop. 215 patients rights to access and grow their own medicine. He was one of only 10 people to show up at the meeting and voice his concerns with their actions.

That year a coalition of mores than 300 residents was formed and a Vote NO on measure A campaign began. These residents of Butte County united to stop the interference of the county.

This campaign was successful with a large voter drive initiative and media campaign securing 55% of the voters saying NO on measure A.

Today Eric works endlessly from Southern California to Northern California advising and implementing political tactics, to ensure every Californian has the right to access legal safe medicine under the law.

auto insurance companies giving lower insurance rates to marijuana consumers...the reasons are listed in this article. They drive slower, and are less apt to go out and party/drink. And may I add, no deaths or suicides from marijuana, but hundreds of thousands from pharma drugs. And why isnt obama and the senators addressing 22 suicides a day by veterans? here is the link: http://www.tokeofthetown.com/2012/04/auto_insurance_site_says_marijuana_users_are_safer.php
