The Marijuana Users Bill of Rights

marijuanausersbillofrights

In mid-August I attended Seattle Hempfest. It was the first Hempfest since the implementation of I-502, which passed by popular vote in 2012 and “legalized” marijuana in the State of Washington. What Washington has is not legalization and it is clear to me we must define what legalization really means to users of marijuana through a Marijuana Users […]

I heard the news today, oh boy… And though the news was very sad, I just had to laugh…   Of course everybody understands that I’m talking about Governor Brown of California, who just announced that he would wait and see how the Colorado and Washington legalization laws work out before he would sign a […]

UPDATE ON NSA IPO

NSA-Fort_Meade-1950

I’m sorry that I was not able to file a report last week, but my informant felt it was an inopportune time to communicate with me directly. A new communications link had to be developed, which is now in place. First I want to report on the old news. After my first report, there was […]

SPECIAL NOTICE (Applies Only in Non-Legal or Non-Medical States) I have noticed that the DEA has not been able to keep the seizures at 10% of estimated production and imports. Out of concern for the DEA agents’ morale I have started a special citizens group to aid them in their efforts. The Special Alternative Forces […]

THE HIPPIES WON

YIPPIE

In 1968 a study concluded that most Americans thought that personal happiness was more important than a successful career. This report sent a shudder through corporate America. This was a first-time event that portended future conflict between industry and the public. The capitalist ideologues started funding various right-wing think tanks to figure out how to […]

MEDICAL MARIJUANA COMES TO MASSACHUSETTS

Flag_of_Massachusetts

As I look forward to teaching at the Massachusetts Cannabis Knowledge Forum, I can’t help but reflect on the fact that, last November, the people of Massachusetts did a wise and wonderful thing: They approved a medical marijuana law that allows some patients to grow their own plants. On November 6, 2012, 63 percent of […]

THANK YOU, SANJAY GUPTA

Gupta on CNN

I first learned of the medical use of marijuana in the early ’70s when a girlfriend tried it for cramps after reading of Queen Victoria’s use in a NORML ad. By 1996, when Prop. 215 passed in California, I had seen miraculous cures and relief of symptoms for all kinds of serious conditions experienced by […]

ABANDONING THE ENLIGHTENMENT

Enlightenment 2

There is difference between Holland’s history and the history of virtually every of the country in the world -except, perhaps, ancient Egypt. When you look at the geology of the U.S., Romania, Kenya, Japan or almost any other country and see the splendors and vistas that the land offers, you may be tempted to exclaim […]
