Moms for Marijuana Thrilled at Return of Stolen Weed-Advocacy Quilt
The community of maternal marijuana legalization activists was rocked this past weekend when a cannabis quilt, the product of two years and more than 70 pairs of hands, was stolen from atop a Ford Explorer parked at the CVS on Thornton Lane in Irving.
The quilt, self consciously modeled on the more famous AIDS quilt, was en route to the state capitol lawn in Austin, part of a cross-country, awareness-raising journey on behalf of the pot advocacy group Moms for Marijuana when its caretaker, Tracy Ansley, took the ill-fated CVS pit stop.
Ansley was shocked and dismayed when she found that the quilt had disappeared. So were her fellow marijuana-loving moms, who within two hours had put out a call to action on Facebook.
"Okay MORON,(I seem to be using this word a lot lately!!!!) You stole a Cannabis Quilt?" one random Facebook commenter wrote. "REALLY? Give it back you ASSHOLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What the fuck are YOU going to do with it."
The thief, whomever he or she was, seems to have wondered the same thing. As Fox 4 reported last night, the quilt was discovered Tuesday by the side of I-30 near Fair Park thanks to an anonymous tipster.
Thus, faith in humanity has been restored, albeit only partially. In the box with the quilt was a partially completed Unity Panel that has yet to be found. If you know where it is, you'd be wise to hand it over. Otherwise, you might fall victim to her:
