Incremental Illness

All of the progress made in the last decade is based on incremental state by state wishes. In reality Obama hasn't changed a thing. Only sometimes not enforcing the law of the land. Still in effect. Lowering it to a schedule#2 triplicate script will not end prohibition profits or recognize 10th amendment rights that don't exist since Raich v Gonzales determined all cannabis as commerce. Now cops and urine testers are writing cannabis initiatives. The CSA scheduling of cannabis was a temporary measure until the Shafer report was concluded. When it was Nixon rejected it and pushed the CSA, Congress agreed and it still stands. Only now including Hemp and Medicinal cannabis never banned by the marihuana tax act. Science has determined cannabis is safer than alcohol and medicinally useful for many illnesses and symptoms. Yet more states waste resources wishing away reality for quick profits and a taste of civilization. No doubt the central coast has never been so free. Large selections of strains and applications in several shops or have it delivered and paid by CC. Easy as ordering pizza, with about the same shelf life unless cannabis is removed as a controlled substance. As it should be.

The pro's have chosen to barter with insanity
as a lesser evil from insanity itself. That's pretty insane.


Cure the Debilitating Incremental Illness

"... the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races."
~ Harry J. Anslinger

Anslinger held office an unprecedented 32 years in his role as commissioner (of narcotics) until 1962.
He then held office two years as U.S. Representative to the United Nations Narcotics Commission.
The responsibilities once held by Anslinger are now largely under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy.

The United Nations Single Convention On Illegal Drugs, 1961
Guess who benefited from the 'control of opium': Glaxo Smith Kline, and Johnson & Johnson's Tasmanian Alkaloids:
GSK
and Johnson & Johnson are the world's biggest opium dealers.



Why the Federal Government Will Not Reschedule Marijuana
☛ Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs
☛ Trillion spent is a Trillion earned.
☛ The Controlled Substances Act – a federal law of the United States that was implemented in order to comply with the various international treaties, including the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs and Convention on Psychotropic Substances. The Controlled Substances Act categorizes each controlled substance into five categories, with Schedule I being the most restrictive category. Cannabis was placed in Schedule I in order to comply with the treaty.

Now in some funky reverse engineering. The same culprits use the Convention as reason to justify the Controlled Substance Act after Leary v US had the Marihuana Tax Act overturned. The Act backing Anslinger when adopting the UN Convention. So instead of a CSA, we should overturn the Convention on the same grounds as the MTA. rendering the CSA invalid. With such spineless leadership, and worse on the horizon. Integrity, ethics and morals obviously dead to allow it to go on this long.



Creating a Crime: How the CIA Commandeered the DEA

Afghan Opium Harvesting Protected by British Occupation Forces
Not only was this illegal drug production being carried out in the shadow of ISAF’s Main Operating Base, it was being done under the protection of British soldiers. Her Majesty’s Armed Forces (Army and RAF) were protecting this man’s cash crop from illicit ‘taxation’ by the Afghan National Police or Army.

Exporting DEAmocracy

This is part of our global contribution.
The drug war has become the preferred foreign policy approach toward controlling much of the world.
We export our drug war, our tactics, and, most of all, our DEA.

Endless 'war on (some) drugs'
fills our prisons, wrecks lives and wounds society



'The Real History of Drugs' Educates Millions
By Tony Newman / Drug Policy Alliance August 24, 2015

A new series of videos explains the motivations behind our 'War on Drugs'

The United States’ longest, unwinnable war is the "war on drugs."
Despite decades of arrests and locking up millions of Americans,
politicians and PSA’s urging us to “Just Say No,”
illegal drugs are still as available as ever.

But why are some drugs legal and some prohibited?
Why do we arrest approximately 600,000 Americans each year for marijuana possession,
but sell tobacco and alcohol on most corners?
Why do we lock up people who use meth for years,
and dole out the similar drug Ritalin to our children?
It is not based on science and health harm,
but most often because of racism, stigma,
and who is perceived to be using the illegal drugs.

The social impact company, ATTN: produced a series of short videos called “The Real History of Illegal Drugs”
which explains why, when, and how some illicit drugs such as marijuana, MDMA, cocaine, opium and LSD became illegal. full story at alternet
