Moms for Marijuana quilt disappears in North Texas

Posted: Updated:

Tracy Ansley lost something unusual and invaluable to her.

It was stitched together by a mother's group called Moms for Marijuana International.

The moms put together a homemade cannabis awareness quilt to promote pot.

"We want to encourage an open and honest discussion about the many benefits of the cannabis plant," Ansley said.

The quilt was put together to encourage the legalization of marijuana across the nation.

Ansley said it's modeled after the AIDS quilt. Each square is from a mom in each of the 50 states and took two years to make.

The quilt disappeared on Friday as Ansley was driving it from Dallas to Austin to be displayed on the lawn of the state capital.

Ansley stopped at a drug store along State Highway 183 in Irving for a bathroom break. When she came back out, the large package on top of her car had disappeared.

She asked for help from friends, posted on Facebook and even put an ad on Craigslist.

Then on Tuesday she received an anonymous message telling her the quilt was sitting along Interstate 30 near Fair Park in Dallas.

Ansley found the quilt in relatively good shape, except for some minor damage and pieces of the quilt with blocks from around the world.

The quilt heads next to Washington D.C., Idaho and California.
