A Presentation prepared by Alekson/Grazing Bull was delivered to Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom on September 16, 2011 and confirmation of the receipt of that delivery was received from 10 Downing Street  on September 22, 2011. 
The Presentation is meant to open a dialogue with the Government of the United Kingdom for (i) the ground-up formation of Compassionate Medical Marijuana Legislation; and (ii) development of a nationwide, stringently governed and transparently regulated and monitored Medical Marijuana Industry creating more than 100,000+ new well-paying jobs across the United Kingdom.
                The task at hand is not an easy one.  Notwithstanding the difficulty faced by law makers in bringing about a fully developed infrastructure in support of the Medical Marijuana Industry contemplated by the Presentation, law makers need to compassionately recognize (i) the needs of those suffering from debilitating medical conditions; (ii) the risk of prosecution people face each time they seek relief from chronic medical conditions; (iii) the immediate need for a great many well-paying jobs to help mitigate current levels of unemployment across the Nation; and (iv) a new tax revenue source to help fund much needed social programs.  Compassionate Medical Marijuana Legislation is the right action; now is the right time. 
The Presentation sets forth a practical, systematic framework for development and implementation of Compassionate Medical Marijuana Legislation in the United Kingdom.  Governmental adoption of initiatives similar to those set forth in the Presentation will create a business-risk-manageable Industry immediately bringing about significant outside Capital Investment.  Capital Investment needed to develop the nation-wide infrastructure in support of the Industry.
Given (i) the labor intensive nature of the Medical Marijuana Industry; and (ii) that Patients will come from across the United Kingdom and from all walks of life; jobs created by formation of a Medical Marijuana Industry will be proportionately spread nationwide across all United Kingdom communities. 
Creation of more than 100,000+ new, well-paying jobs in a stringently controlled and transparent Medical Marijuana Industry will improve the economies of countless communities across the United Kingdom and spark entrepreneurial enthusiasm.  Entrepreneurial enthusiasm to create new business enterprises in support of the Industry; those enterprises, in turn, creating countless additional new jobs.  The ripple effect generated from the creation of more than 100,000+ new, well-paying jobs in a relatively short time period will have an enormously positive affect on the economy of the whole of the United Kingdom. 
The job multiplier associated with creating more than 100,000+ new, well-paying jobs in an entirely new Industry could potentially create as many as 2 to 2.5 times that many indirect support jobs needed (i) to manufacture and/or procure the materials and sophisticated equipment necessary to operate this new Industry; and (ii) to monitor its governance.  Sophisticated products and well educated and industry trained personnel (both blue and white collar) are required to successfully operate this Industry
The industrial-scale strategies discussed in the Presentation delivered to Prime Minister Cameron will require hard work, long hours of dedicated effort and the collaborative cooperation of all; everyone pulling together to bring about a 21st Century perspective that relegates the thinking of the past to the history books and gives birth to a whole new Industry with an abundance of new, economic opportunities.
