Mike Cann = Mike Crawford

One person has expressed some criticism of my using "Mike Cann" representing MassCann/NORML in this Boston Phoenix article. The author of the piece, Valerie Vande Panne knows my birth name "Michael 'Mike' Crawford". She also knows that I am also widely known as "Mike Cann", a stage name I picked up a few years back when I was actively involved in marijuana reform but hiding it from my Fortune 500 employer. Dave Tree knowing my predicament said everybody needs a good stage name and proclaimed me, "Mike Cann". Mike Cann, which did catch on pretty quickly.

Eventually, I quit the Fortune 500 and no longer hide my true name in any shape or form. Mike Cann = Mike Crawford. I go by two names, one more well known than the other.

This person is representing that I went back on my word to them in a private email asking if I would use Mike Crawford in my MassCann/NORML business. I said I would and in fact I had already been doing so. See the video below from, 3/2009.

I use Mike Crawford in my MassCann business, I also occasionally still go by Mike Cann. The two names are interchangeable. I am one person with two last names. It's not a secret or hidden in any way. I prefer "Mike Cann" because it's what people know me as and because it reminds me of the struggle I had to overcome to be truly free. Free with two names!

  1. Who is Mike Cann? A man that is fighting for a good cause...does it matter the name? Aren't we all here to try to legalize marijuana?

  2. If it was not a secret, why did you feel the need to post this?

    Also, nice touch, posting on your own feed as "anonymous," because Mike Cann sells t-shirts for his own gain that say "Who is Mike Cann?" and then responding as MikeCann.

    Classy. And cheap. Like the t-shirt I see advertised right next to this post a comment box.

    Of course, you will delete this comment, that is why I am copying it to directors.

    But you have proven my points.

  3. What revenues? T-shirts dont make a profit unless you sell more than a half dozen. If we sell all that we printed we wont even break even. And we give some away...

    One of my cheap video cams costs more than any ad revenue I have ever made on all my sites combined.

    "If it was not a secret, why did you feel the need to post this?"

    To clear up your assertion that I am hiding my name. Because I know how you whisper.


    Nice touch is I didn't post as anonymous and might be able to prove that if you care to take a look. Hoping anonymous reveals themself to show Dr. Keith isn't going at playing the odds once again...


    Classy. And cheap. Like the t-shirt I see advertised right next to this post a comment box.

    I dont delete. You are missing much, Keith.

    This is priceless, public hanging, Dr. Keith Saunders, aisle 3 cleanup.

  4. Funding my activism through google ads and maybe wishing t-shirts might sell enough to break even and get the word out? That's so dastardly and wouldn't be if I used my birth name, Mike Crawford? Is Dr. Keith Saunders on Unregularradio.com selling ads if you want one on the Boston Pot Report? Evil? I think not. There's a big investment in that radio station to take something back to cover some of the costs? Not evil, it's practical unless you have an axe to grind?

  5. I first met Mike a few years ago on mysp when he couldn't come out with his name. And I remember his blogs when he was agonizing over leaving his job to pursue this full time.

    Sounds to me like this person was gonna pull a fast one on you 'oooo I know your real name and I'm telling!!!' And now they are pissed off because you beat 'em to the punch :P

    Mike, ignore the haters like you always do and just keep on keepin on bro.

  6. Enough of the DRAMA already!! Who cares if it's Mike Cann or Mike Crawford or John Doe.... As long as PEOPLE are working together to further the legalization effort they can call themselves whatever they want to. REMEMBER: United We Stand Divided We Fall!!!

  7. "Sounds to me like this person was gonna pull a fast one on you 'oooo I know your real name and I'm telling!!!' And now they are pissed off because you beat 'em to the punch"

    I beat them to the punch a few years ago. I dont hide my identity. Not to press, bands, activists, to nobody. He was trying to attempt to make it look like I do. Today, I prefer to use Mike Cann because it is more effective in getting info out. Not because I am hiding my identity. I already let it out awhile back that mike crawford is my birth/government name. I've been reported as Mike Crawford in press dealing with masscann, many times for any that care to look..
