Who is winning the war on drugs?

Meet the Special Interests Keeping Marijuana Criminalized Americans overwhelmingly agree that marijuana should be legal, so why isn’t it? So glad you asked… by  Laura Williams In this era of political polarization, when Americans seem to agree on absolutely nothing, let me reassure you. We overwhelmingly agree that cannabis should be legal. 1 in 5 Americans have (state) legal access, 1 in 2 have experimented with it, and more than 1 in 10 smoke regularly. Southern California yuppies are publicly winning prizes for growing the same plant that landed Georgia teenagers in prison. Half of states allow at least limited use, and a few attract elite cannabis tourism. Federally, the drug remains fiercely criminalized, despite irrefutable evidence of its medical value. So what’s the […]

I have read many more PROs from the 20+ states who overturned at least some parts of the current federal prohibition, but this list below nails much of it. There is an incredible amount of positive, scientific and historical support for cannabis. The downside seems to all emanate from those who designed The War On Drugs to manipulate society. This Is How Legal Cannabis Is Improving Public Health Cannabis has a significant positive impact on some of America’s deadliest bad habits.

“happy” anniversary

The federal government assault on people who grow and/or use cannabis is 80 years old today. The elites can celebrate with a few tokes, some brownies, a few lines of coke while the masses languish in the prisons of the country that incarcerates more than the worst dictatorships on Earth, with over half of the inmates in for cannabis “crimes”. The article below highlights some of the unique history of this prohibition.   Marijuana Prohibition Turns 80: Eight Decades Of A Failed Policy October 1, 2017, 2:00 pm Johnny Green Marijuana Legalization Eighty years ago, on October 2, 1937, House Bill 6385: The Marihuana Tax Act was enacted as law. The Act for the first time imposed federal criminal […]

when the obvious becomes hard to ignore

The “war on drugs” scam has been running for 45 years, but its cover appears to be breaking down. The ludicrous Reefer Madness campaign is now widely ridiculed. The state-by-state rebellion of the people against the ruling elite is proving more than the mythology of their war can hide. The scourge to society and its children has not taken place in legalized pot states. The “no medicinal benefits” CDC lie has been thoroughly debunked by real world experience. And now pot prohibition’s obvious funding of organized crime, in both private and government sectors, is being laid bare.   Legalizing Weed Has Done What 1 Trillion Dollars and a 40 Year War Couldn’t Written by Nick Bernabe The $1 trillion War […]

The Freest Country on Earth

from A Geek With Guns A lot of people in the United States mistakenly believe that peacekeeper and law enforcer are interchangeable terms. In a nation where the only laws on the books were laws against harming others that could be true. But a vast majority of the laws in the United States have nothing to do with harming others, which is what a vast majority of prisoners are being held for victimless crimes: In light of that, let us review some statistics which demonstrate just how destructive the mass incarceration of victimless criminals has become to our society. The 2009 federal prison population consisted of criminals who committed these crimes: Drugs 50.7% Public-order 35.0%, Violent 7.9% Property 5.8% […]

drug warrior confessions

The DEA Just Admitted Marijuana Has Never Killed Anyone And Causes ‘Happiness’   The Drug Enforcement Agency just admitted that cannabis has never killed anyone. Ever.  They also acknowledged that the little green plant, which has been used across civilizations for thousands of years, causes “merriment” and “happiness.” But they still want to keep it illegal. The new 94-page report released this week is entitled “Drugs of Abuse” and is intended to foster a better understanding of the dangers of drug consumption. “Education plays a critical role in preventing substance abuse,” the document opens. “Drugs of Abuse, A DEA Resource Guide, is designed to be a reliable resource on the most commonly abused and misused drugs in the United States.” […]

in your face – by Big Pharma

You would think they have to be subtle, but noooo … Today’s news says their abuse of us can be blatant without penalties. Going straight to the heart of the matter, Big Pharma spent $51 million in the 2012 federal elections and nearly $32 million in the 2014 elections. Their spending in state elections is similar. For every $1 the industry spent on contributions during the last election cycle, $7 were spent on lobbying in 2014. This is where the real money buys legislative and executive branch favors. The pharmaceutical industry’s lobbying expenditures steadily increased from 1998 to 2009, when spending hit a $273 million peak as Congress debated the Affordable Care Act, according to CRP. In 2014, drug […]

cannabis VS Parkinsons

Missy introduced me to this video on Facebook: ride with Larry I searched for a way to share that outside of facebook and found not the same one, but perhaps a better one. Either way, it is about not giving up more than anything. You think you have it bad? Reach down inside of yourself. Living, rather than waiting to die is a choice. Make it. And by the way, if government agents tell you their is no medical use for cannabis, know they are liars. Deal with them from that knowledge base.
