UPDATE:U.S. panel portion of the Cannabis Quilt was found by the side of the road after an anonymous tip notified Moms of the whereabouts. International panel still missing. The group issued a press release saying: “Words cannot express our gratitude to our canna-family, the community and the media for all
your help. The search is still on for the Unity Panel, but our main panel is back!” —
In Irving, Texas, the same town where two women were recently cavity searched from front to back without a trooper changing gloves between them, in plain view of roadside traffic, Moms for Marijuana chapter leader Tracy Ansley stopped at a rest stop to use the facilities on her way from Dallas to Austin to show the cannabis quilt. When she returned to the car, it was stolen. She was driving a beige Ford Explorer, which was parked at CVS (2222 Thorton Lane). While indisposed, two panels which comprised the quilt were stolen off of the roof top luggage rack at around 6 pm on April 5th 2013. The ‘Our United States’ panel (18′ x 24′) and ‘Unity’ panel (8′ x 10′) weigh close to 60 lbs together.
Moms for Marijuana is calling on you to share this story and help locate the quilts, which were the combined loving effort of families and groups across the nation and internationally.
“(Having the) cannabis quilt (stolen) is a great loss to Moms for Marijuana International. Words cannot express the heartbreak I feel over losing this beautiful symbol of love and unity. Since the theft, the outpouring of support from the cannabis community has proven to me that the last 2 years of my life and all the hands that went into making this quilt a reality were not in vain. The love and support I have felt from the community has been overwhelming and heartwarming. Our quilt is all about unity and I have felt that unity threefold since it was stolen. I know all of us united will bring our baby home.”
-Candace Junkin, Assistant Executive Director of Moms for Marijuana International and Maryland Moms for Marijuana Chapter Leader
