Standing for Life in a Culture of Death-Our American Tragedy

Standing for Life in a Culture of Death – Our American Tragedy

Recent tragedies have America broken hearted and searching for answers. It is far easier to blame something outside ourselves than to look within to see the series of problems which have brought us this sad state of affairs. At MomForce, we stand for Life and Liberty. We believe the issue of gun violence in our country is a multifaceted problem that requires good sense, level heads, and reasonable solutions. Measures can be taken to keep our kids safer, but we also need to understand many of our problems started at home.

I was raised Catholic, in a Conservative family. As the wars in the middle east continued without end, I realized that a vote for the right meant a vote for war. I was asked to vote for the Pro Life candidate at church, but that candidate supported more war, and the death penalty. How can you be Pro Life and support war and the death penalty?  I don’t understand the hypocrisy. Life is life, and we have no business judging when or if it ends, in my humble opinion. As stated, this is my opinion, and I do not believe it is my right to impose on anyone else.

The idea that we raise young men and women to be excited to kill people overseas should be looked on as a medieval notion. Surely we can deal with leaders and find a peaceful means to an end. That is, unless there is money involved. As someone who stands for life, I will never vote for a candidate who supports war. I am now a registered Independent because I know both parties are guilty of perpetuating this war without end. We have no business sending  children off to fight these wars and expect them to come back without severe emotional damage. When they do, we give them a bagful of deadly, addictive pills with side effects including suicidal thoughts-and tell them to go home.  Our Veterans Administration is a national embarrassment.

We have allowed 24 hour cable news and talk radio to divide neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend, and family members against family members in hopes of achieving ratings. The pharmaceutical companies take up most of their commercial time, paying dearly for those repetitive drug ads. Neither the media nor our leaders will speak against them, or they will lose their lucrative accounts and donors. The most divisive programs are in the top ten of the cable news ratings. Fox News’s reaction to the Parkland Town Hall was the last straw for me. I encourage everyone I know to watch something pleasant or better yet, just turn it off.

We have allowed lawmakers to stay in Congress for decades while they fight the same unending battles without progress, all the while further dividing their constituents down the middle along party lines. The majority of these folks would rather see our neighbors remain addicted and dying from pills and heroin than recognize the one non lethal substance that is helping. These lawmakers have had their hands out to corporate lobbyists, taking money from any entity no matter what the outcome to our kids, our environment, our freedom, and our health- all to keep a political career which should be required to change after 4-8 years of service.

We are One Nation, under God, or whatever you choose to call our collective Creator. We are not a Blue or Red state. We are One People, One World. We need to recognize each other as brothers and sisters and work together.

We must practice Mindful Parenting.

We fill our kids full of the worst foods available, give them prescriptions without thinking, supply them with an electronic device- and walk away. Even parents who are home aren’t always there. They are occupied with life and achievements. Houses, cars, and “Retail therapy” are driving many families to push themselves to the brink to buy things they don’t need to keep up with what’s sold to us on television. America’s obsession with consumption has us sick, addicted, and dying to keep up with too many of our kids left alone to figure it out. Parents work two and three jobs trying to chase an American Dream when they should try to pare down to the basics of what they can afford and enjoy time together.

Time is all we really have. Forget the housecleaning and the yard and go do something. There’s a million free things to do if you’re short on cash. Get up and get outdoors.

The processed foods we are eating are causing many to go to the doctor, and the doctor is quick to write a prescription. Our kids are full of so many prescriptions, many parents are finding the complications from the various medications hurt their kids more than the initial problem. The pharmaceutical companies have also gotten to our farmers, poisoning our livestock as well. Kids are being diagnosed “special needs” from interactions of too many prescription drugs. About one out of ten children are diagnosed with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). These drugs equate to “Meth Light” and are actually made of the same components as street meth, carrying many of the same addictive side effects. Kids with behavioral disorders are also given mood enhancing drugs called SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors). These drugs cause some folks to feel agitated, suicidal, and homicidal. Many report hearing voices while using these drugs. Why would they give these to someone who is already sad or depressed? I am not sure, but their sales have increased by about 400% in the last twenty years. An overwhelming percent of mass shootings have been fueled by these drugs. Couple these drugs with the violent video games, processed food, and cable news- and you have a recipe for disaster.

Many parents are beginning to solve behavior problems at home with natural solutions. Cut out processed foods first. Use basic, recognizable ingredients and make dinner yourself. It’s fun and it gives you a chance to talk. Never put your kids on drugs unless they have a truly valid medical issue. Do some research and find out if natural solutions will work for your child’s issue. Kids need our love, attention, time, and a purpose. They don’t need drugs.

Absentee Parenting is Our Greatest American Tragedy

Our Children Learn What They Live

Our kids are looking at us to be their guide and their best example. If a child is raised with Tolerance, he will learn to Tolerate. If you bully your child, your child will be a bully. Be mindful of their social media interaction, friends, and actions in general. Be responsible for the person you have created. Teach him or her to be kind. Take time with each other. Put down your phones and go for a walk. Always love thy neighbor regardless of political affiliation, race, nationality, or sexual preference. Love thy neighbor- even when you are driving!

We can blame the gun lobby for aggressive sales, or we can blame the system that allowed these folks to bring big checks to politicians to keep them on their side. We need to vote out those who do not stand for our values. The gun lobby is just one of many entities that are ruining our country and paying politicians to stay quiet. Major waterways are being poisoned, pharmaceutical companies are getting away with murder, and a hundred other injustices happen every day in our country. The gun lobby is just another business making a fortune on America’s Culture of Death.

Do I personally think private citizens need assault rifles? No, but I am not going to tell someone else they cannot go to the range and fire one if that’s the sport he or she enjoys.        Other countries have banned automatic weapons with lifesaving results, but I don’t see that happening in America. We have allowed guns to be sold without accountability for so long that they are everywhere. Responsible citizens register them initially, but then they end up sold to friends or at gun shows. That’s how they end up in the hands of criminals. Now there are so many on the street it wouldn’t be fair to ask trustworthy people to turn theirs in.

It is also less than fair to ask responsible medical marijuana patients to give up their rights for using a healthier medicine than prescription drugs. Many prescription drugs are known to have psychotic side effects, and are prescribed without worry. Alcohol fuels violence, traffic deaths, rape, assault, domestic violence, and kills thousands of people every year. It’s sold everywhere we go. Gun owners are able to drink all they please while taking their sidearm into bars and other public places. The NRA endorses these without question, but makes reefer madness reels about cannabis. More hypocrisy in the Culture of Death.

Do I personally think we need to raise the age to purchase a firearm? No.

Since our brains are not developed until we are 25 or more, there is no physical change between 18 and 21 that would make a difference. Soldiers can enlist at 18, and there are thousands of capable young gun owners.  Going forward, common sense would say we need to tighten up some of our gun regulations. Hopefully the experts will figure out what works and we will see progress. Our population has grown since the Constitution was written, and it is important to maintain public safety.

When the Constitution was written, we didn’t have the toxic combination of cable news, processed foods, multiple prescription drugs, vacant parents, and Happy Hour. Our neighbors are sick from bad food, pills, rhetoric, and booze.

Citizens at ease would never think to pick up a weapon to hurt another. Healthy, stable people can be in a whole room full of artillery and never think of shooting their neighbors. The trouble isn’t the gun, it is the state of the shooter. We must address the feelings that fuel the tragedy.

Citizens are not at ease. I am not at ease with the current state of our country.

So, I will March for LIFE on March 24 with my neighbors in Phoenix at the March for Our Lives.

I will be marching for Change, for our Kids, and for the future safety of my neighbors.

If you see me, I will be holding an American Flag and crying like Iron Eyes Cody for our country and for Our American Tragedy.




A Viable Solution to the Nationwide Opioid Epidemic

A Viable Solution to the Nationwide Opioid Epidemic

America is in the grip of an opioid drug crisis. We lose someone every twenty minutes to opioid pain pills, and their use has led many to street heroin. This is taking place in regular towns amongst good people, and there has to be a means to an end. Fortunately, there is a non-toxic option that’s legal and proven effective. It’s medical marijuana. About 150,000 Arizonans qualified for medical marijuana, and of those the majority qualified under chronic pain. These patients reduced or stopped their opioid drug use by using marijuana as an alternative. This takes opioid drugs out of medicine cabinets, off streets, and out of the hands of our kids. You may think, “That’s medical marijuana. It’s already legal”. True, but many cannot afford the card and others don’t want to use something illegal. “Medical marijuana” and “recreational marijuana” are the same product. Yes, some are bred for better quality, but they’re the same product. Colorado has seen a 6.5% drop in opioid-related deaths since legalization, according to the American Journal of Public Health*.

Governor Doug Ducey says he won’t trade one drug for another, but he’s going to propel Naloxone. Naloxone is a drug used to bring someone back from an overdose. We do appreciate Naloxone, but prefer to prevent an overdose before it happens. Cannabis (marijuana) cannot cause overdose, according the Centers for Disease Control. We lose about ten young people every month in Arizona to opioid overdose. Cannabis is proven effective for pain relief, and as an exit drug for opioid withdrawal. Many are using this as a natural alternative to Suboxone and Methadone. Meant to bring people down slowly, these common opiate-based prescriptions are keeping many people hooked. Cannabis is less addictive, and doesn’t damage the body the way opioid drugs do.

Governor Ducey’s opioid crisis solutions have not made a difference. On the contrary, the death toll is higher than ever. I speak with the families, and it’s heartbreaking. Lives are being saved in states with reformed cannabis laws. The substance should be legal for adults, like aspirin. Other states have saved lives by regulating cannabis within their state legislature, and Arizona can be next.

Governor Ducey says people who suggest this option are doing so out of monetary interest, which offends me. I’ve been an unpaid volunteer, using my American rights to speak out against what I find wrong and share the truth with my neighbors for the last decade. I do not work for the marijuana industry. I am a witness, who tripped over a solution to this crisis while standing to save lives from alcohol and pills. I am a woman raised with respect for life, a mother who wants to keep kids safe, and an Arizonan for liberty and less government intrusion, on a mission to save lives. I pray Governor Ducey will include this viable solution in his next special session on the opioid crisis.

MomForce AZ 2017 Wrap Up – A Decade of Cannabis Advocacy

MomForce AZ 2017 Wrap Up – A Decade of Cannabis Advocacy


This month marks my tenth year in cannabis advocacy.

When I came into this issue, I had been standing up for education and those who do not have a voice. Having overcome my own difficult experiences, I wanted to help those who could not or did not think they could help themselves. My interest in injustice led me to understand cannabis prohibition, and my understanding turned into a decade long crusade. While I knew we were saving lives standing for a just cause, it was such fun in the beginning I saw it as a sort of selfish outreach. We all wanted to live in a world without penalties for cannabis possession, but many of us had no idea how much good we could do by responsibly propelling the issue. Together, we have learned more about our health and our government than many of us ever predicted. Over the years, the meetings we started have brought great friends, family, and blessings beyond my expectations. I didn’t know what to expect when I decided to stand up for cannabis. Having lost my father to alcohol and seeing so many kids lose their short life to substance experimentation, I stood up to save lives. I stood to fight an injustice that had the potential to impact every facet of our society. As I learned about cannabis I began to see an answer to environmental issues, world hunger, violence, overdose deaths, and addiction. The more I learned, the more I wanted to learn.


As a woman raised with respect for life, a mother who wants to keep kids safe, and an Arizonan for liberty and less government intrusion, I could not ignore the injustice of cannabis prohibition once I realized its origin. I knew we could save lives by talking about this, understanding it, and changing the laws surrounding it.


The cat is out of the bag.

The world is beginning to understand cannabis. Through social media and honest education, we are learning just how common its use is, and has always been. People are finally beginning to feel comfortable talking about it without snickering, and more importantly they are considering using it as an alternative to pharmaceuticals. The statistics keep coming in, and they continue to weigh in favor of legalization. Teen drug use is down, dui-related traffic fatalities are down, and overdose deaths are down in states that allow cannabis. Cannabis is making our world a peaceful and more empathetic society. Thanks to all of you who have stood up, written letters, made calls to legislators, and propelled the truth through conversation and on social media, prohibition is fast becoming a thing of the past.  


There is still much work and education to be done, and MomForce will continue to defend cannabis use when necessary and educate our neighbors wherever possible.


What is MomForce?


MomForce is a 501c4 nonprofit organization for substance education, harm prevention, and whole health solutions. We are an all-volunteer group of parents and concerned citizens standing for good health and common sense drug policy.


-We are not beholden to any business or monetary entity. Our contributors are listed on our website. While we thank them for their support, we do not recommend products or businesses.


-Are we pro-cannabis? Yes, we are for all natural solutions that leads us to higher health. Cannabis is helping people with issues from pain management to cancer treatment.               Our nation is in the grip of an opioid epidemic. As a nontoxic alternative to opioid pain pills, we focus on cannabis as a quick remedy to this deadly crisis. While cannabis is becoming legal across the nation, honest education is breaking the cycle of drug use and addiction.


As we go forward, we will continue to educate about cannabis and explore other issues that have impacted our health. After talking with hundreds if not thousands of Arizonans about their medicine, I have come to the conclusion that many of us are ill because of what we eat. When we eat for prevention and not just for pleasure, we can move through most all health problems. Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food. Truer words have never been spoken. Without health problems, you don’t need prescription drugs.

The Powers That Be convinced us that cannabis was bad, and their chemicals are good.

Of course they got to our food, as well.


I am overwhelmed how power and greed has been allowed to take away our health.

Think about it- if something is being sold to you, it probably isn’t good for you.

Pharmaceuticals, alcohol, and unhealthy foods are pushed on us every day.

So many legal poisons, not many healthy solutions being pushed or sold to you.

Have you seen a commercial for Broccoli? How about Green Tea?

Milk? Yes. Got Milk?

Beef? It’s What’s for Dinner.


These industries use their billions to make more billions, on the back of our health.

Americans have fallen into a Culture of Consumerism that is leading us to a Culture of Death.

We eat terrible foods from morning to night and wonder why we feel bad. Doctors are quick with a pill to make us feel better. Pharmaceutical commercials blow my mind with their happy dancing people, light hearted music, and deadly warnings. It’s like we are living in some sort of alternate universe.


There is so much heartache and  injustice in our world. It is hard to bear, and many fall into the hands of addiction. Whether it’s food, alcohol, or drugs, it’s all being sold to you at every turn from the time we are born.

So many homeless people, while so many vacation homes sit empty.

So many seniors sit alone, while kids wait for their parents to play with them.

There is a lot of work to be done in our communities, and we can all do something to help.


MomForce is working to make this world a better place through advocacy and education.

We are going to be approaching new issues and climbing to new heights in the future.

Drug policy will remain our main focus, but we will also be talking about the issues that lead people to take drugs through our Let’s Get Real About Drugs and Arizona Parents & Concerned Citizens outreaches.

-Bad health



-Family issues


Our goal has always been to save lives and help break the cycle of addiction.


As an all-volunteer organization, we depend on the kindness of others to propel our mission.

Donations fuel our projects, and without them we cannot continue.

MomForce is hard to support since we are neither in the cannabis industry nor the mainstream. I understand your apprehension. We are friendly with law enforcement, and that makes many industry people nervous. I have always believed we are doing the right thing, and no one needs to know this more than law enforcement and law makers. We will continue to reach out and educate those who need to know more. We speak truth to power. We are politically independent, so we are sure to offend those on both sides on the aisle.

We stand for pragmatic progress, and truth above all else.


We appreciate those who have bravely stood on the edge and supported us in the past, and we encourage others to invest in our work. There is no end to the good we can do together.


To free up time to devote to new projects, I have removed MomForce as an affiliate of Americans for Safe Access. We appreciate their good work and will continue to refer folks to their website and great information.


I am creating a new contact list for MomForce.

Our list needs an update! If you would like to stay up to date on our events, stay in touch with us at If you would like to be added to our new email list, please sign up through the online form.


What’s up for me in 2018?


I am excited to say I will be again returning to school to learn more about health, wellness, and substance abuse. I will remain Director of MomForce and continue to teach my classes, lead support groups, and help make the world a better place where I can. I plan to concentrate on my wonderful family and organize my house from top to bottom. Ten years of neglect and travel have caught up and I have much to do! I am anxious to get started. I have been successfully vegan for 18 months, and alcohol-free for about five. I am feeling toxin-free and healthier than ever before. Clean living is a whole new high!


I have been proud to be a voice for cannabis, but after ten years talking about little else, I must move on. I will continue to speak up when necessary, but I must make more time for the things that are most important: my Family and true Friends. It was never my intention to remain in the industry. Before the blessing of motherhood, I intended to go to medical school. Through this cannabis outreach, I have learned enough to help people on a path to higher health, and I am excited to develop this calling. I will surely be at the occasional industry event,  in support of the host or Mr. Inman while he lights up the world. My husband has patiently supported me at my events all these years, and I am delighted to be there to support him in all he does.


I would like to thank the representatives who stood with me in 2017, and invite all members to become more involved going forward. My partner on the west side, Don Ream, has done an amazing job rounding up a New Posse in Sun City. Don has brought together an amazing group of advocates, teachers, and friends to help neighbors in America’s Retirement Capital.  If you are a member, please reach out if you would like to become more hands on with this organization. We are all-volunteer and open to new ideas!


I will continue to lead respectable demonstrations when necessary.

On January 8th, we will be back at the Arizona State Capital to remind our lawmakers that cannabis can stop the opioid epidemic for our 3rd annual demonstration on opening day. I encourage all of you to join us to stand for a nontoxic solution and contact your representatives to tell them what you know about opioids and cannabis.


This is a life and death issue, and I have always asked activists to give it the respect it deserves.

While cannabis advocacy was fun for me at first, I quickly realized we were talking about a possible cure for cancer, among many other ailments. It is for this reason I have promoted responsible, respectful, educational advocacy without consumption. There’s a time and a place for everything, and I don’t have time to organize parties when there is so much work to be done. Real advocacy for this cause means breaking old stereotypes and changing hearts and minds, in my opinion.

I have been disappointed by some who have come to us as a volunteer to stand for the medicine, then turn around and exploit consumption. This perpetuates stereotypes and makes our whole industry look bad.


While I thoroughly understand and appreciate the culture of the adult community, I stand so our grandchildren may grow up in a drug-free world.


I came here to save lives. It’s working. I didn’t come here for any sort of fame or notoriety. I did what I have done to try to help in a way I thought I could. I did it because it is the right thing to do. While I didn’t do this for fame, I ended up getting some because I stood up as a volunteer for Prop. 205. My grocer, friends, everyone saw me on those commercials. People still look at me in the store, and sometimes they come up and thank me. Many times, they bless me.

That’s what I run on. The idea that I am doing something so good that people are compelled to say God Bless You for what you do.

After ten years, I look back knowing I was named the Best at what I have done. I was able to explain cannabis prohibition to America’s Toughest Sheriff, and he told me to “keep up the good work”. I am a blessed woman, and satisfied that I have done what I came here to do.


Bless up to you All for doing what you do. Together, we are healing a nation.


Cheers to a healthy and prosperous New Year for you and your families,


Kathy Inman

Director, MomForce AZ
