Pushups Against Pot Prohibition

#1 Postby Pushups4Pot » Mon Apr 25, 2016 12:06 pm

Hello Everybody! My name is Devin Lawler and I'm 22 years old! I'm a die hard vegan and have been one for about a year or so now. I haven't eaten meat since September 25th, 2015 and I very rarely consume any dairy/eggs because it doesn't agree with my stomach much anyway! I'm currently in the IT:Computer Support Specialist program at NWTC (North Eastern Wisconsin Technical College) and will be graduating in about a year!

On October 5th, 2012, I was mugged for an oz of cannabis after a day of work. I was 19 years old and the damages where severe as the blindside punch caused my glasses to rupture into my left eyeball, blinding me completely for 3 months until a combination of 4 surgeries over the period of a year helped save what was left of it. You can learn more about my story and me here at my gofundme www.gofundme.com/devinslefteye

Now, I realize that the law against cannabis may have cost me a year of my life and my left eye, but cannabis itself saved me from taking my own life daily from the PTSD that prohibition has caused me. Safe access to Cannabis would have saved me from ever getting mugged and losing my left eye.

To raise awareness for the pain that I went through and the pain and discrimination that many others are going through, like my good friend Trevor (https://www.gofundme.com/thisisthecase), and all of the children and adults all over the United States that would benefit from Cannabis, I am doing pushups daily to combat against pot prohibition here in the U.S. Starting with 20 pushups on 4/20, and increasing by one everyday from then on out.

My goal is to help break the stigma that "stoners" are lazy and unsuccessful by getting some massive vegan gains. I have a routine setup which I will post on here later, I go to the gym once every 3 days and do a home workout once every 3 days, this way I'm lifting heavy 1/3 out of every month, lifting light 1/3 of the month, and resting 1/3 of the month. If you have any advice just comment and let me know! Thanks!!
