Welcome to Finley Experience

This website is dedicated to LGBT folks who are surviving in this crazy world.

What's good for one isn't necessarily good for another.

Attempting to control the hearts and souls of the masses through force and injustice only forces the seeds of dissension to grow. History has taught this lesson repeatedly. Perhaps, we'll learn the lesson this time.

Remembering People Who Have Changed Our Perspectives

I'd like to take a moment to shout out to all the people who have inspired someone else to seek self-understanding, self-awareness, and self-improvement. Some times these moments of inspiration are unintentional and sometimes they are quite intentional.

One may meet many people in a life time and it is possible that one could find inspiration in each meeting. Though, we are often guilty of letting potential moments of inspiration pass us by, we are not ignorant of the import of such moments.

Marianne Carmichael inspired me at a very young age. She passed away some years ago (cancer), yet she is still with us (in memory).

Who has inspired you? Please leave a comment if you feel like honoring them here!

H.R. 313: New Attack on People: "Criminal Conspiracy" for Planning a Trip to Country Where Marijuana is Legal?


Have you ever spoken to someone else about using marijuana in a country or state where marijuana use is legal?

Answered yes to that question?

You plan to go? You plan to abide by the laws of two different countries or states? You even willing to leave your own country at high expense in order to abide by two different nation's laws on marijuana usage? And, now you've engaged someone else in your plan to use marijuana: you've told your friend(s) about a country where it is legal?

"Criminal Conspiracy" - conspiring to use marijuana! Shazam! Take that you law-abiding citizen! Shame on you for speaking about abiding the laws and using marijuana in a country where it is legal. Shame on you for respecting your country's laws and another country's laws on marijuana. Your country said, "no marijuana" and another country said, "marijuana okay." And, you spoke about going. You conspired. You are a criminal!

If HR 313 (2011) passes then the scenario above (two people speaking about potential legal marijuana use) would become a criminal act. The authorities (DEA, ATF, etc.) could legally charge you with "criminal conspiracy" because you conversed about a desire to use marijuana in a country where it was legal. This bill is part of the Controlled Substance Act.

Sign the petition to get President Obama to speak about HR 313 and the assault of Free Speech. Tell him to VETO if it makes it to his desk! Tell Obama: Defend the 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech! Tell Obama: Talking about abiding marijuana laws is not criminal!
