DEA Illegally GPS-Tracked a Drug Runner, Now It Can't Enter 150 Pounds of Found Weed Into Evidence
Many Presidents Have Smoked Marijuana, But You're Not Allowed
The cannabis plant was once a very common thing in the United States and it was a massive, legal cash crop. Many of our early Presidents grew and/or smoked it, including Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, three of the heads on Mt. Rushmore, a national treasure of pride and rememberence.
Yet, as we all know, things went horribly wrong for cannabis in the 1930’s as it was renamed “marihuana” and demonized as an evil drug that makes you lose your mind. And for what? Because it will destroy your life? Tell that to Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, plus George W.Bush, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, who all admit to smoking in their younger days. There have even been many reports that John F. Kennedy smoke marijuana, even as President, to help relieve back pain. They all led pretty good lives, as do tens of millions of cannabis users every day.
The propaganda surrounding marijuana is man-made and things are beginning their long journey back to the way nature intended. Legalization is inevitable after the walls of propaganda finally fall. We must continue to chip away at the lies until nature is free once again.
Recall Elections in Wisconsin Could Pave the Way for Medical Marijuana
The June 5th recall elections of several Republicans could remove some major opponents of medical cannabis in Wisconsin.
Governor Scott Walker is an opponent of medical cannabis, saying “Federal law still classifies marijuana as a Schedule 1 narcotic and I believe state law should reflect this as well," when asked if he supported medicinal marijuana.
Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch is a former cancer patient and still opposes medical marijuana.
Four Republican State Senators are also facing recall, including State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, who is a longtime opponent of MMJ. Most of his constituents supported a medical marijuana bill in the legislature a couple years ago, according to records.
State Senators Pam Galloway and Terry Moulton are also opposed to MMJ and are facing recall.
No matter what happens with the others, if Governor Walker remains in office there is no chance for medical marijuana to become legal in Wisconsin, as the legislature doesn’t have enough votes to override his veto.
If things go well in Wisconsin next month, it could help send a major message to politicians across the country. Medical marijuana is overwhelmingly popular is every state and nationwide. Those hoping to secure elected office should assess how out of touch they are with voters on the MMJ issue.
The Jacki Rickert Medical Marijuana Act (JRMMA) languished in the state legislature in 2009 and 2010, and all of the officials listed above opposed it publicly, and they are being opposed in the recall elections by mostly JRMMA supporters. So medical marijuana is likely to play a key role in the minds of voters on June 5th.
The feelings of elected officials need to be brought into line with those who are voting for them. Which means many elected officials need to lose their jobs.
