nothing in life is permanent. or, as an eloquent man once put it in a much more dramatic light, “the centre cannot hold”.
Dave Cole was a badass. he survived more than most people know, and he helped to shape all those who encountered him, myself included. he took on anything in his way with the most stubborn tenacity I have encountered… cancer, addiction, ms, regulations, the u.s.legal system… when Dave wanted to move forward he did, and he let none of these things stand in his way. break through it or work around it, but don’t fucking stop. he was a perfect example of why decriminalization/legalization needs to occur. I will always remember him for that crystal clear determination, strength, and drive. he left more of a mark on this world than can be quantified. rest in peace my friend
