Veteran’s walk for medical marijuana comes through Blissfield area Tuesday
By Brad Heineman
A Navy war veteran who hails from Astoria, Ore., has taken on another fight on his own, but this fight takes place on the land – not at sea – and his fight, which is for legalizing medical marijuana, was literally pulled through Blissfield today.
Fifty-eight-year-old Ras Ible, a self-declared “Rastafarian” is currently engaged in a 3,000-mile trek across the nation which began in California – all on foot – to raise awareness for homeless American veterans and to promote a possible future that would make medical marijuana available for those that may need it.
Ible, pulling a green painted cart – his mobile home – entered Blissfield Tuesday afternoon, made his way quickly
along U.S. 233 and on to the state of Ohio the same day. His eventual goal is to arrive at the White House in Washington D.C. before the November election, where he said he will park his homestead and live until a change in the country has been made.
