DOPES IN DEALER CLOTHING
Temecula, CA – For these end times Jesus said, “Be aware”. That theme is central to most of the articles posted here. Usually we cover things like food, law bills, or politics.
You probably think that my favorite subject, cannabis, is itself all the awareness you need if you are involved in the medical movement.You would be wrong, Sports Fans, on that account of late, for the weed of Ego grows now at the heart of the ‘Legal Green In Fourteen’ movement to legalize recreational pot use in California for 2014.
Though highlighted in several recent stories here, there is a common misconception that all MMJ people who don’t looked ‘jacked’ [disabled] in a wheelchair must be stoners, or stoners pretending to be ‘sick’, that both market demos [stoners and MMJrs] freely intermingle, and that both demos are well known to each other. All three presumptions are completely erroneous.
There is one other, little reported, erroneous presumption.
That would be the one that says we are all united. Complete bullshit. The ‘free the weed’ underground made up of activists and activist organizations has more churn than a cable market about to be sold at per sub value. As we go to post this report, there are people in the MMJ movement who for their own personal gain/fame, would jeopardize the total push for complete hemp freedom to be ‘that guy’ in the marijuana peanut gallery pecking order. Redacting the names, this letter recently floated across my desk, so to speak:
I'm excited to announce, shortly after 4:20pm last Friday, 10-11-13, we filed the Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act of 2014. The proponents of this new initiative are xxxx xxx, xxxx xxxxxx, xxx xxxxxxxx, and xxxxx xxxx (myself).
For the last year we have been reaching out to thousands of people with a grassroots, “open source” document to legalize cannabis in California. This is the first project of Americans for Policy Reform (AFPR), a new 501c4 dedicated to legislative reform. AFPR gathered information from people within the California Medical Marijuana movement and others from all walks of life.
This is a breakthrough change for Californians and a serious issue for most. By using a public open source document, we were given great insight into what the real issues were and how to solve them. The Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act of 2014 leaves no details out. It not only legalizes cannabis, but it also shows how it will be governed in an acceptable way that the majority of Californians can endorse. In addition, the Act is in compliance with new guidelines from the US Attorney General office.
This initiative measure grants to Californians the freedom to use, grow, transport and sell cannabis subject to reasonable regulation and taxation in a manner similar to alcohol. The measure will:
* Comply with the Attorney General guidelines
* Prevent the distribution of marijuana to minors
* Prevent the growing of marijuana on public lands
* Prevent the profits from the sale of marijuana from going to criminal enterprises, gangs and cartels
* Prevent the violence and the use of firearms in the cultivation and distribution of marijuana
* Prevent “drugged driving” and other adverse public health consequences associated with marijuana use
* Clarify California’s medical marijuana laws
* Generate millions of dollars in new revenue for California
* Save law enforcement millions of dollars and provide them time to fight real crime
* Separate legitimate cannabis businesses from drug dealers
With this filing, we start the final stages toward ending cannabis prohibition in California.”
So what’s wrong with this picture? Plenty.
The whole legal picture about pot is puzzling and with good reason. There is no other plant on the planet like it, honestly. Simply put, if all other plant life was to disappear along with animal food sources, and fossil fuel to burn for heat and light, but cannabis was bountiful, we could thrive and not miss anything we presently have to survive. I have even had pot liquor, yup yup. Because of this universality cannabis does not play well with others in the arena of capitalism. Today on the Huffington Post Blog, a writer delves into this very aspect of legitimizing pot, just one of hundreds of products that can come from cannabis. One man made me see this realization, Jack Herer*, when we first talked in 2003. The initiative that the medical community I know of (Riverside, Los Angeles) and that the 420Nurses back, is the CCHI, the revised law that Jack wrote that is set for the 2014 ballot [Lord willing and the creek don’t rise].
Beware of Paul Chabots in Dealer McDope clothing that have their own agendas AS Jesse Jacksons. No one replaces the Hemperor. And congrats to Lanny Swerdlow over, ahem, Paul Chabot. Meanwhile in Uruguay a law was introduced to sell weed nationally at $1 a gram.
LEGAL GREEN IN FOURTEEN
