Dennis Moyers

From Goldy this morning:

The medical marijuana community in Seattle lost a very good friend recently. Longtime patient advocate Dennis Moyers passed away. I found Dennis to be one of the most interesting and thoughtful people to discuss medical marijuana with. His years as a patient himself gave him great insight into the battle that’s been waged to deny people from taking a medicine that they’ve discovered to be tremendously beneficial. His latest effort was to encourage the Obama Administration to set up liaison within the Federal government to meet with medical marijuana patients and develop smart policy. The online petition is here.

And an email from Robert Christian:

Dear Friends of Washington State Democrats,

Mr.Dennis Moyers who served on the 11th Legislative District PCO- has Passed away on May 11th. His Memorial service is planned for June 6, at the Cross and Crown Lutheran Church in Renton .. at 11AM.

Mr.Moyers served on a couple advisory counsel's with Washington state's Governor, and was a Medical cannabis patient, and advocate.

Dennis was the first Medical cannabis patient in Washington state, and above everything he did, one thing is certain " He served the people he loved".

We are asking, if you would like to attend his Memorial service, Please contact us.

Dennis was a man of many talents, and goals. His most recent was a letter to President Obama to create a medical cannabis liaison, on the federal level.

I ask everyone to email me back, if you would like and plan to attend. The Governor's office has been called, and she may be attending.

Robert Christian
Personal Friend of Mr.Dennis Moyers
