Ronnie Lee Smith, better known as Roland Duby or Marijuana Man, passed from this life yesterday evening from Leukemia.

He was a Cannabis Activist who was a major player in the Cannabis Oil movement for Cancer.

With a single post on Facebook a Man who had fought the greater part of adult life for the Cannabis movement and had attested to curing many others who had been given up on by our healthcare system from cancer, did, himself succumb to cancer.

I’m very sad to say that we’ve lost our friend and brother Roland Duby in his battle against Leukemia
RIP sweet friend

There were many activists who were "watching" his facebook page for hours leading up until the end posting messages and conveying their love and prayers to him.  And many messages left since then.

It is a major loss to Cannabis Activists all over the U.S. as him and his knowledge will be sorely missed by all.

He is survived by close family whom shall remain unnamed here for personal reasons, and many, many, friends and activists whom he influenced throughout the years who shall attempt to carry on the fight!

He was "MARIJUANA MAN"!

He was born and raised in Warsaw, Kentucky

Graduated Class of 1983 from Gallatin County High School in Warsaw, Ky

Graduated "Oaksterdam University" Class of 2010

He authored the following websites:

I knew a guy that went by Thor in Lexington KY around 1991 or 1992. I only knew him as Thor. We performed improv comedy together and he was part of the Cannibals Action Network in KY at the time. It’s been years since I last saw him and I was trying to track him down. Could this be the same person? He let me write on his head once with a sharpie, “Don’t let this happen to the rain forest.”

Unfortunately yes this was him. He went by quite a few “comedic” names, lol. Thanks for taking notice!

I had the opportunity. to meet and spend the day with Roland ….he is/ was a good honest …heart of gold….out to help anyone in need …mostly free of charge. .I remember him saying no-one should be denied life because they can not afford it … there is a cure and anyone who really . Needs the oil just has to ask…. that to me …was the most honest good hearted thing any one can do for another…. he is truly missed ..by not only us who know him in person but by everyone he touched…like everyone he had his ” haters” but that’s only because he lived his life ..not the life society wanted him to live … I’m sure he is weeping in heaven from missing his son …. but he is no longer suffering on earth in his human shell…he is sitting up on a cloud… smoking a fatty with dimebag ..and ..Jack….R.I.P.MY THREE HERO’S …..I MISS YOU ALL….

This man was my friend, and Richard J. Rawlings friend. He supplied Richard with Cannabis oil at no cost when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2012. I lost Richard in February 2013.

I am gutted to read both about Ronnie and Richard. If they were both taking cannabis why did they die if it works? My husband is terminally ill, really bad right now. Today is his fifth day on cannabis oil and he has gone back to being a baby – I am doing everything for him. Please tell me it works. I have been on the internet for the past two months finding all I can about cannabis and it took another month to find the oil. What happened to Richard?
