Matt Rifkin, born and raised in New York City, and 20-year resident of Tokyo, Japan moved to the Big Island in 2003 to escape the concrete jungles and neon lights. Became interested in cannabis reform when seeing the vast difference between US and Canadian media coverage of the murder of four RCMPs in 2005. Became personally interested in solving the inter-island transportation issue after being threatened with arrest at Kona airport on Christmas Day 2007. Although living in Puna, Matt lives “on the grid” and while not vegan or vegetarian tries to eat non-GMO papaya and organic fruits as often as possible.

    Good the public needs to know there is more to medical marijuana then what our federal agencies are comfortable disclosing to the public (because they cannot run modern tests to verify many studies) the sooner we realize the damage our archaic puritan laws surrounding marijuana have been a thorn in our side for a century when it is everything except what it was claimed to be, a problem for society and health. The longer lived, happier and healthier we will all be off.

    Friends for Justice will have an informational booth there, for anyone who has been impacted by our archaic cannabis laws. We also welcome new members who want to help us with court observations, become involved with forming new legislation on the state level, as well as offering financial support for our group. See you on January 27th!
