The Diane Downs' Case Was No Small SacrificeAugust 3, 2014, 1:00 am 2 comments in the last 7 days. comments
The Diane Downs' Case Was No Small Sacrifice.

On May 19, 1983, Elizabeth Diane Downs and her three small children were shot on a country road near Springfield, Oregon. Her 7-year old daughter Cheryl died, but her 3-year old son Danny and her 8-year old daughter Christie survived. Within three weeks, Diane had lost custody of her remaining wounded children and had become the number one suspect in the eyes of the police department and District Attorney’s office. I came across some very interesting information about the Diane Downs case because Rule attended the trial and also wrote a book about the case called Small Sacrifices.

I just recall him telling us that it would come to represent the cannabis herb that is the center of so much attention around the world.

EXCLUSIVE: Diane Downs Never Held a Weapon, How Could She Have Shot Her Kids?.

It's hard to say exactly what convicted Diane Downs in the shooting of her children, a terrible event that played out on a dark night in 1983. If one word plays into the scenario over and over, it is "emotion" and that is indeed a raw, powerful determiner of guilt in many cases, sometimes appropriately, sometimes not.

Dissecting the Opioid/Heroin Epidemic to Discover its Ugly Roots.

Hypothetically, what if the FDA had an "interest" in approving dangerous opioids when just nine years an opioid called Palladone was pulled by the FDA after only a month of being on the market for its danger to the public? Purdue Pharma, maker of the opioid, epidemic making drug OxyContin produced Palladone and had hoped to piggyback more profits in the billions with two blockbuster opioids.

My Personal Hero & Inspiration: The Girl Who Won My Heart.

Out from a crowd of thousands, a sweet yet very determined young lady came up to me and said, "Excuse me Cannabis Lady, but I want you to know that I Love you because cannabis is and has been saving my life from cancer." Mykayla Comstock is a very special and beautiful miracle of a child, born on June 20th 2005. She's a very happy and seemingly healthy little girl, whom I had the pleasure of not only meeting, but getting to know during the 2013 Portland Hempstalk in Oregon.

His is a testament to a life well lived, a very “worthy” life, and the difference one person can make for others.
