Choose Your Poison

canna_risk5At the risk of seeming contrary since I added a new header for the blog that contains a rally cry for those who first stood up against taxes meant for the poor man in early American history (“Huzzah for the Whiskey Boys”), I wanted to show readers that my claims of Cannabis demonizing by the government/media/corporations has been shown to be propaganda and outright lies.

If interested, you should read about the Whiskey Rebellion and how us “White Indians” took on the Watermelon Army.

Many of us have been hoodwinked into believing all the lies about cannabis. It took $Billions and a constant many decades long pushRgvS7 from those who profit from the prohibition to make you so uneducated about the subject.

But, as is my nature, I find that any time officials tell me some storyline, I already know it to be bullshit 99% of the time. I also have the benefit of several decades of personal knowledge of the subject and know hundreds of people that understand the same thing… that cannabis is not in any way, dangerous to one’s health and welfare. The biggest issue with cannabis is the police state that has been formed around that lie. The most dangerous thing that could ever happen to a cannabis user is being arrested and one’s life ruined. It has absolutely nothing to do with the “danger” of the drug, no matter what this moron, OK Rep Markwayne Mullin says about it:

At a town hall meeting last night, Oklahoma Second District Congressman Markwayne Mullin slammed President Barack Obama for suggesting that recreational marijuana use is no more dangerous than social drinking, the Tulsa World‘s Randy Krehbiel reports.

Rep. Mullin was responding to a question about Obama’s position on marijuana, and he did so in a way that very closely resembled the argument favored by Fox News’ Sean Hannity — “I can drink a beer or two and I don’t really feel anything,” Hannity is fond saying, but “you can’t smoke a joint and not feel something.”

When asked about the president’s position, Rep. Mullin replied that “you can be a social drinker and not get drunk,” but “there’s no way you can take a drag on a joint without feeling it.”

“You can not — and I can’t speak to this, because I’m one of these guys who’s never tasted a drug in his life — but there is no way you can take a drag off a joint and not feel a little different. It alters your way of thinking.”

Rep. Mullin continued by saying that “those who smoke marijuana do so to get high, that’s the only purpose. There’s no other reason.”

“What about pain?” asked one town hall attendee.

“Pain?” a visibly annoyed Mullin replied. “Pain? I have screws and plates in me from [my head] to my toes, so I know about pain. The pain doesn’t go away, you just mask it (with drugs). The pain is still there. You have to learn to deal with it. Then you can move on with your life.”

“The only thing that [pain] does is give you an excuse [as to] why you can’t do something, of why you can’t accomplish something — ‘because I hurt.’”

God_made_weed,_man_made_beerI have had countless people explain to me how bad weed is. That it is worse than alcohol and as bad as heroin, crack, etc. Many, if not most of those people have NEVER even tried it, much less used it for any medical reasons. Perhaps there are a few people that have problems with it (I have one dear friend that says it makes him so paranoid that he won’t use it… but he drinks a 12 pack or more daily). I contend that most paranoia is based upon what one thinks might happen if they get caught by the police (or employer), not that the stuff makes them paranoid in and of itself (although there may be some that experience this). It would be such a small minority of users to make it insignificant. Differing strains have different effects on people, so if paranoia is an issue, find a strain that doesn’t induce it. (Of course, this would be easier if one could go to the liquorweed store and buy the exact strain they want like picking out your preferred Vodka)

My push has become a medical pursuit, but I also know that this is a freedom related issue. One should be free to use something that is so much less hazardous/damaging than alcohol (which, as I mentioned, is used by some of the very same ones who argue against marijuana in the first place), even IF there sole reason is to “get high”. Will Mark or Hannity tell me that people do not use alcohol to “get high”? Seriously? It was the only reason I ever used it. There certainly is hardly any medical benefit from it, yet I can (and have) posted hundreds of articles and links that prove marijuana efficacy.

Someone like MarkyMark Dumbass of OK, who has NEVER “tasted a drug in his life”, is going to explain to someone who has “tasted drugs” for a majority of his life, that it is not beneficial or IS worse than alcohol (btw: I don’t drink any more because the stuff makes me sick, kills people, and I have seen it ruin lives… none of which holds true with cannabis) has no factual basis except propaganda to go by. (I’m sure that the substantial donation from the National Beer Wholesalers Assn has nothing to do with his anti-pot platform)

I’m sorry, but anyone who has never tried it and wants to explain to those who have how awful it is should stfu because they do not know what they are talking about.

Period.

Choosing Teams

McCaffrey_police_state

Has anyone else marveled at the recent olive branch offered to Cuba? For my entire life I was told what horrible Communists they were (not that I have an affinity for Communists) and that they are a Police State, cracking down on the casinos and drug dens of the 40’s and 50’s (often frequented by America’s elite and other mafioso), shutting down American mafia businesses.

What could be the motivation for the current BFF meme circulating the net?

I originally considered that America is trying to pull what Russia is trying to pull with Europe… that is, bring them over to “our side”. Or maybe, its the multicultural invasion with a goal to water down the white majority (as IF they need this to accomplish their goals… simply saying that most white people are so damned brainwashed that they believe anything officials here tell them anyway)?

Really, when in the last 50 years did America  decide that they love Cuba?

Well, apparently there may be another reason. They are better partners in the War on Drugs than our actual allies and we have chosen them to our team.

Cuba is surrounded by countries used as cartel way stations. But it has distinguished itself as a tough place to traffic drugs — and as an unlikely behind-the-scenes partner with its decades-long rival, the United States.

All of our allies fail miserably when it comes to stopping the flow of black market drugs (aka CIA run, American bank funded, money laundering schemes) because they aren’t tough enough on their citizens. But Cuba fights WITH its arch enemy on this front:

In the eyes of U.S. counternarcotics officials, many of America’s closest neighbors regularly receive failing grades for their efforts to stop the drug trade. Mexico, where 100,000 people have died in drug-related violence over the past eight years, remains “a major transit and source country for illicit drugs destined for the United States,” according to a 2014 State Department report. In Jamaica, drug-related corruption is “entrenched” and “widespread,” while in Guatemala, “transnational drug trafficking organizations are able to move drugs, precursor chemicals and bulk cash with little difficulty,” the International Narcotics Control Strategy Report states.

But the same report offers rare praise for America’s longtime communist foe. At a time when other Latin American nations have increasingly questioned the human and financial costs of the drug war, Cuba has emerged as one of Washington’s most reliable allies in unwavering opposition to the decriminalization of narcotics.

Is it just me, or does anyone else see Communist similarities in the tactics of the two team members? Does anyone else see the Police State as a current day instrument of communism, which we obviously have embraced (no matter how many times you are told you are a free society)? For God’s sake, when did we start championing Communism (yeah, I know. We’ve been doing it for a long time with the left hand, while the right hand is stamped “Capitalist”). They are but two sides of the same manipulative coin.

Cuba wasn’t always so police’y:

Before the Castros came to power, Havana’s nightclubs and casinos had the full range of illicit substances, and opium dens were a fixture of the city’s once-bustling Chinatown. Soon after taking over in 1959, Fidel Castro and his rebel army shut down the casinos, imposed draconian drug laws, and sent addicts and others to Marxist re­education camps for hard labor. While American hippies grew their hair long and indulged in pot-fueled paeans to Che Guevara, the real communists in Cuba came to associate recreational drug use with ideological deviation and other political taboos.

Now for the “money quote”:

“Cuba’s a police state, and I don’t believe the Cuban government wants to be a hub for drug smugglers,” said Barry McCaffrey, a retired general who served as the White House drug czar during the Clinton administration and is a former commander of the U.S. military’s Southern Command, which focuses on Latin America. “They saw it as a threat to their children, the workforce, their economy, their government.”

Now which other country feigns concern about threats to children, while simultaneously having its own clandestine forces (including, some say, a former Governor, then President) active in bringing in those drugs to “threaten” the children anyway? And would you,too, call that country a “Police State“?

I would.

Sometimes, these moronic shills/liars like McCaffery, actually let some truth slip out. But will anyone notice?

It’s all at the Washington Post.

Yes, Weed Kills Cancer, But How?

How Do Cannabinoids Kill Cancer? – Dennis Hill

I was recently inspired to write something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. I notice in the popular literature, and even in the research, we really don’t see how cannabis kills cancer. I wanted to be able to write a one page piece on How It Works that anyone could understand in order to have confidence with this process that has generated a wide range of opinions.
~Dennis
cannabinoides-cancer-sein-prostate-5-910x702There is a plentiful supply of research articles and personal testaments that show the efficacy of cannabis effecting cancer remission. However, only a few point to the mechanism by which the cancer cells die. To understand this better we need to know what metabolic processes provide life to the cells.

There are two structures in most cells that sustain life; one is the mitochondria, and the other is the endoplasmic reticulum. The mitochondria primarily produces adenosine triphosphate (ATP) that provides the necessary energy. The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is a loosely bound envelope around the cell nucleus that synthesizes metabolites and proteins directed by the nuclear DNA that nourish and sustain the cell.

Let us look first at tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and observe that THC is a natural fit for the CB1 cannabinoid receptor on the cancer cell surface. When THC hits the receptor, the cell generates ceramide that disrupts the mitochondria, closing off energy for the cell.

Disruption of the mitochondria releases cytochrome c and reactive oxygen species into the cytosol, hastening cell death. It is notable that this process is specific to cancer cells. Healthy cells have no reaction to THC at the CB1 receptor. The increase in ceramide also disrupts calcium metabolism in the mitochondria, completing the demise to cell death.

The other cannabinoid we know is effective in killing cancer cells is cannabidiol (CBD). The primary job of CBD in the cancer cell is to disrupt the endoplasmic reticulum through wrecking of the calcium metabolism, pushing calcium into the cytosol. This always results in cell death. Another pathway for CBD to effect cancer cell death is the Caspase Cascade, which breaks down proteins and peptides in the cell. When this happens the cell cannot survive. Again, these processes are specific to cancer cells, no normal cells are affected.

Cancer Patients That Are Simply Cheating The System For A Buzz…

There is hope…

Hope, even for a teen with brain cancer

Winlock 15-year-old Taylor Rehmeyer has battled an aggressive brain cancer for nearly a decade with chemotherapy and radiation. But she and her mother say it was marijuana that finally cured her.

“She got an MRI (in May) that said no major abnormalities. The doctors at Seattle Children’s Hospital don’t want to admit it was cannabis, but I don’t care. She’s cancer-free,” Karen Owen said in a recent interview. “It’s more than we could have ever hoped for.”

Taylor was diagnosed at age 6 with a rare brain tumor that has returned three times.

In September 2012, Taylor was one of the first children in America to receive proton radiation at Philadelphia’s Roberts Proton Therapy Center. The high-tech treatments worked — for awhile. Taylor’s tumor shrunk after initial radiation sessions but started growing again last August.

That’s when Owen, determined to heal her daughter, turned to marijuana oil therapy.

Hope, even for the idiotic, lying, Drug Warriors

Michigan Prosecutor Loses Case After Anti-Medical Marijuana Rant

An attorney’s opinionated rant against marijuana in a Michigan courtroom last week cost her a case, even though most seemed to agree she had won.

In her closing arguments in a case against a Michigan medical cannabis patient accused of growing more than he was allowed, Alger County prosecutor Karen Bahrman went off on a tear on the state’s medical marijuana laws, the Alger Hemp Coalition, a local cannabis advocacy group, and patients in general. She said their vision was to live in a “country where everybody can walk around stoned.”

Basically, she wants medical cannabis patients to sit down, shut up and don’t make any waves – even if things don’t seem right.

“They do nothing to support the government services they want, and have nothing but criticism for the government services they don’t want,” Bahrman ranted. “We’re trespassers and tramplers of their rights right up until they need us to protect them from the violence that they attract to the community.”

Paul Heminger, the man on trial for growing more than he was allowed, was sentenced to six months in jail at the time but has since been issued a new trial by the court, who agreed on a 3-0 vote that Bahrman went too far with her “unfounded, irrelevant and inflammatory statements.”

“The prosecutor embarks on a political commentary, and a personal diatribe discrediting the (law) as a whole,” the court ruled. “She calls the act ‘meaningless,’ and suggests that those suffering from chronic pain are simply cheating the system.”

Times are a’changin’. Sanity begins to show.

It won’t be long now…

Crohn’s Disease Cured With Use Of Marijuana Oil

Shona Banda’s amazing story is just one more reason why people need to wake up about this miracle medicine and demand that it be made legal. Not just medically, but simply like cabbage. Usage in teens does not go up as has been shown in Colorado and other places. All the general accepted arguments have now been thoroughly shown to be the outright lies they were. There really is no defending the prohibition any longer.

Shona’s story touches me because this brave woman (and her husband) decided to take her life into her own hands. By scraping the residue from a home made machine and ingesting the oil, she healed herself of this terminal disease (I’ve known several people that had it and it is horrible what they go through). Apparently, she was able to buy some, but what if she were very poor and couldn’t afford it (black market, or legalized, which is expensive)?

It is a crying shame people have to resort to this… worried about illegalities… knowing that it is all a farce… many times choosing to suffer and die than fight for your life because of profits (for there cannot be another viable explanation for its continued prohibition). People could grow just a few plants for enough medicine to cure Crohn’s Disease, dammit!

Think of that.

Official Police Business

Sometimes they want to stick a catheter up your pee pee to prove you are a dopehead.

Sometimes they want to stick a needle in your veins without your permission (just because they can).

Sometimes its just a silly finger in the criminal’s anus.

Sometimes they show support for the needy, like this deputy who was making fun of retarded people on his Facebook Page.

image9

Sometimes, its these heroes doing their dangerous job like this SWAT team that took down some very dangerous terrorist barbers:

“With some team members dressed in ballistic vests and masks, and with guns drawn, the deputies rushed into their target destinations, handcuffed the stunned occupants—and demanded to see their barbers’ licenses,”

Sometimes the cops just want to smell your feet (or panties).

Other times, they simply use made-up terrorist fear tactics to instill legislation (like the Patriot Act: not that anyone here would have seen this coming) that simply makes it easier to bust you for weed  and does nothing to actually catch non-existent terrorists.

And then we have the cops raping women and kids (apparently with several other cops watching and getting their jollies), some with the intent to EAT their victims. But don’t fret, Cannibal Cop is a model citizen, just like your next door neighbor:

But defense lawyers say in court papers he’s well on his way to becoming a model citizen. They say he hopes to become a lawyer and stays in contact with inmates he met during 21 months in prison.

And then, our vaunted terrorist catching organization called Homeland security is extremely preoccupied with catching these killer criminal panty copyright infringers (thank goodness that the panty making terrorists have been shut down).

 

It’s all Official Police Business.

Shut Up and Submit!
