6 States Trying to Legalize Recreational Marijuana in 2020

The opinion given here, is a response in comment to the article linked above, and the explanation thereof, are directed to inform everyone of just what “legalization” does…It lies to you!  Total REPEAL of these unlawful Statutes much be ensued to regain our Freedom upon this planet.  It’s not just Cannabis that they are afterIt is total control of everything…They just started with the “Marijuana”!

I am totally convinced that the “National Organization for the Retention of Marijuana Legislation” (NORML) has been directed and driven by DEA COINTELPRO Money all along. It is the clearest explanation for why they keep insisting on keeping pot laws alive by demanding “regulations”.

Also, most of the corporate pro regulation types are also heavily invested in alcohol or tobacco or big pharma. As a result they try to somehow equate alcohol and tobacco with pot. But this is flawed because pot never killed anyone but alcohol and tobacco have both killed a lot of people.

“…There is NO SUCH THING as a “Good” Pot Law, and that INCLUDES so called “Legalization”….”

Just wait for a couple of years after you have passed your new pot laws, and the statehouse has had a chance to alter and amend and water down your law, and THEN we will see if you still like all the unseen and unpredictable changes that you did not predict or calculate. Then we will see if you STILL think it is a good idea or if you will realize, (As I did ages ago) that there is NO SUCH THING as a “Good” Pot Law, and that you wasted your time with all those signatures and all that lobbying and advertising.

There are many good ideas out there, and almost all of them are overshadowed by other bad ideas. Things like the idea that pot should be treated like alcohol for example. (In over 20,000 years if known human usage of cannabis there has yet to be a single case of toxic overdose from cannabis. Yet people drink themselves to death routinely. On that basis alone it is clear that pot should NOT be regulated “Like Alcohol”.) I tell you, putting your time money and effort into writing a law to make cannabis use “Legal” is NOT as useful and productive as simply removing the law itself so that there are no prohibitions. Abolish the pot law instead of re-write it.

I think that what you are proposing is just a form of legalized dealing for the rich that unfairly excludes the little guy and seeks to use the law to create a lever against smallholders and persons of color while granting enormous special privileges for the wealthy. Every state I have seen that tries to “Legalize” pot does so by starting with a “Licensing” deal where the entry fee for a license is about a million dollars. And in every one of those states the state bends over backwards to grant concessions to corporations seeking to sell and market pot while using tax money from those corporations to crack down on anybody who does NOT have a license. It is like “Legalization for the wealthy”.

And in SOME states, (Like Colorado for example.) the money brought in by cannabis taxes is used to double down on busting persons of color who are deemed “Illegal”. I say that all this is just playing with numbers and rules and that it is just more bullshit. A sort of “kinder gentler” form of keeping pot basically illegal while granting a special privilege to those with money. And I honestly DO NOT REALLY CARE about the guy who gets busted with a “Small Amount” because I already know that small amount came from someone who has a large amount.

After spending my entire life as an adult in the “Pot Underground”, and being the biggest pot dealer in Ohio before I got busted, I am honestly prejudiced in favor of the small to middling sized pot dealer who is the vital middle link in the pot supply chain. Legalization as it affects that guy is going to really determine what ultimately happens to pot in this country.

If you build a legalization that cuts that guy out, or gives their role to someone who do not have the same knowledge and experience that the mid-level dealers provide, you will end up with a market that is designed to cater to the wealthy the privileged and the few. As a direct result, I will tell you that merely working to “re-write” the pot laws as opposed to abolishing and eliminating them, will hurt your end result. ABOLISH ALL POT LAWS NOW.

I have BEEN the fucking “Black Market” for longer than you have been alive. You can take your studies at Oaksterdam and stick them up your ass. Your proposals do NOT create a level playing field, and they amount to legalization for the rich, which is a far cry from everybody can do what they want. When you rail against the black market you are saying that you are just wanting to have the money and lifestyle of a pot dealer without the responsibility or the risk. But at the same time you fail to recognize that the stash in your pocket is there BECAUSE of that very same black market you claim to despise.

I say to you that the black market is the ONLY market, and that unless you recognize how the entire pot distribution network actually works you are just pissing in the wind and creating legalization for the rich.

 I speak from experience. I have spent my entire life in the Pot Underground, including about 10 years where I was simply put, the biggest pot dealer in Ohio. (That all ended when I got busted in ’09.) Nowadays I spend a lot of my time using my experience to talk about the real day to day realities of those in the Pot Underground and they ways that so called “Legalization” will actually HURT pot distribution schemes unless you are in the top 1%. You have not had the time, or been in the position to have had the sorts of experiences I have had, nor to gain the knowledge that I have achieved, and are just spouting off without knowing what you are talking about. You speculate endlessly about how things SHOULD be but you don’t really have the time or experience to really know. And I will close with this simple adage. “…There is NO SUCH THING as a “Good” Pot Law, and that INCLUDES your so called “Legalization”…” ABOLISH ALL POT LAWS NOW!

All you are doing is trying to corporatize pot. And the only way that can happen is by using laws and regulations to do so. And all of those government laws and regulations are completely unnecessary.

Between the American Civil War and the Great Depression there was NO FEDERAL POT LAW WHATSOEVER. And there was no national crisis regarding or involving pot at that time either. So the claim that pot laws are needed and necessary are provably false.

This Is The Way It Works…

11/19/2019  By:  Cris Ericson

cris ericson 10.3.18

Let’s say for example, you win the lottery and spend a lot of money making television ads to promote your campaign as a candidate for the November 3, 2020 Election for U.S. Congress, and you don’t say much, just the usual “Hope” and “Change” and words that people fall for, and because you are dressed nicely and speak softly with a very slight sex appeal, you get elected.

Maybe you hire a professional voice dub-over, a person to speak in the commercials, and people think its your voice, but its not (did you notice Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had the sexiest softest voice in the world in her radio commercials, and then she won the election and in real life she sounds like a hag with a sore throat?).

Well, O.K., so let’s imagine you win. Now what?

You go to Washington, D.C. and you are going to make marijuana LAWFUL and you are going to repeal every single stinking no good for nothing marijuana law. You are going to propose an Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, like ending alcoholic beverage prohibition, back when alcoholic beverages were actually illegal in the United States.

But then something terrible happens!

Speaker of the House, Nanny Pelosi, informs you that SHE is the Speaker of the House and SHE will assign YOU to whichever Committee SHE wants to assign you to.

Huh?

Where is the freedom of association guaranteed by the US Constitution? Why can’t you join any committee you want to join – like agriculture! Yeah, that’s the ticket – the Agriculture Committee! Make all plants legal!

Oh, but no, no, no, no, no, no! Speaker of the House, Nanny Pelosi will screech and scream at YOU if you DARE expect to join any committee you want to!

Then, guess what?

You might think you can go visit any committee hearing room you want to, but this is not so!  You would be kicked out on your ass!  The uppity close friends of Nanny Pelosi like to have THEIR hearing rooms in secret!

Why?

Why don’t you get any freedom of speech and freedom of association so you can do what you need to do to make marijuana LAWFUL?

Ah ha!

FOR EXAMPLE, if you are on a medical type committee, then the in-crowd in that committee room writes up a Bill to give the N.I.H., National Institute of Health, billions of tax dollars which the N.I.H. gives to researchers who patent their inventions of pharmaceutical drugs, and then they start their own new pharmaceutical corporations and then they give the members of the Congressional Committee “kick-backs” of political campaign contributions and their Lobbyists wine and dine them and give them very special favors.

Huh?

Isn’t that some kind of combination of bribery and money laundering and witch craft? Yeah, but no one complains because the committee hearings are in secret, and you can’t get in because Speaker of the House Nanny Pelosi has the lock and key to every room.

And so it goes, the U.S. Congress is the number one crime gang in the entire world. Guns, pharmaceutical drugs, weapons, bombs for sale to our “allies”! 

Yep, everything is all for sale with a nice kick-back to the very specially selected members of US Congress, who Nanny Pelosi picks to be in certain committee rooms, and then she gets HER kick-back, you better believe it! And YOU get assigned, by Nanny Pelosi, to the toilet paper committee!

So, WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT THIS? HOW DO WE CHANGE THE BULLSHIT GOING ON IN WASHINGTON, D.C. SO WE CAN MAKE MARIJUANA TRULY LAWFUL?  AND, restore our God-given Human Rights as well?

We must promote the alarming and shocking new idea that members of the US Congress should have equal rights.  The same as each other.  If they don’t have equal rights the same as each other, then the people in the States that they represent do NOT have equal representation! We must DEMAND that all of our elected US Senators and US Congressmen and US Congresswomen and US Congress, LGBT and US Congress-sexless people have EQUAL RIGHTS TO FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION TO JOIN ANY COMMITTEE THEY WANT TO JOIN, AND TO ENTER ANY HEARING ROOM THEY WANT TO ENTER, AND FREEDOM OF SPEECH TO HAVE AN EQUAL TURN TO TALK ABOUT A SUBJECT.

THAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE.

TKP Thorne Peters–“I’m NOT crying – my eyes are running from the soapy tray.” May He Rest In Peace…

Thorne Peters 2019

On Sunday, November 3rd, at approximately 7 a.m., TKP Thorne Peters was found deceased in his single person cell, where he had spent 22 hours a day, in “protective custody”, since being committed to the Penal Farm in Memphis Tennessee in 2018.

The Detectives came to Linda Harrah’s home at approximately 2 p.m. and notified her of the situation.  I can’t even imagine what she must have felt when she heard those words, (of Thorne’s death) from them.  God Bless her.

He was 57 years old and while in prison had been writing a new book which he was going to publish upon his release from prison.  “Paper is hard to come by here”, he said to me in a letter.

  He always called me “Amore”, which at first I didn’t know what that meant, until I looked it up and found; Amore is the Italian word for “love”.  I will always hold that close to my heart.  He had written me several letters from prison, and they did not tell of any pleasantry at all.

The following is the last letter that I received from him, just a few days before his death.  Because of the circumstances I feel compelled to share it with everyone, especially his followers.

Felicitations Amore,

I have been crashed out hard over my latest victory.  I make the entire Courthouse shut down, and when the out of town Judge rules that ALL my evidence was on point and ALL 30 of the suspects were connected and therefore would have to take the Stand, they tunneled out of the Court to evade justice yet again.  11 years and the clock is ticking against me.

I had allowed myself a vision that when this trial began on December 9, 2019 and I lined up The Ministerz of Injustice for the big reveal that the evidence of their CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY of PUBLIC CORRUPTION would be so overwhelming in the glare of the WHITE HOT MEDIA SPOTLIGHT that would be forced to cover the story of the highest elected and appointed officials of law enforcement, politics, and the Judiciary taking the Stand to face dead bang, fatal blow evidence that my plight would reach the SAG and onto the Governor who would be forced to get involved and take a stand, and I could be pardoned by XMas.

Now the reality of my situation crashes in upon my head.  I am buried under this jail.  Instead of detonating a weapon of mass destruction in Court, I am reduced to taking pot shots with my blunderbust from deep within the bowels of the belly of the beast.

I have to remain focused and dedicated.  I cannot be disheartened.  These victories are not pyrrhic.  I’m not playing Chess.  This is Chinese GO.

I have to keep accumulating ground.  This battle brought me more ammunition to continue.  As it was in the Revolutionary War, we won very few battles.  The victory was keeping the Troops moving and maneuvering.   I had them in my sights.  I have to regroup and flank them again. 

I am reduced to a HUNGER STRIKE to demand the Authorities investigate this case.  The hilarity is that DA AMY (WEIRICH) has to sign off on a case of PUBLIC CORRUPTION in order for TBI (Tennessee Bureau of Investigation), to proceed.  ROUND ROBIN.

Had I been brought back to Court to hear the ADA concede, I would have smacked him across his dickhead as I walked out and declared EXTREME EMOTIONAL DISTRESS as a defense.  The CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY would be back on point and the DIRTY 30 would be called to the Stand.

So, I deal POT at the Courthouse and they won’t charge me with a FELONY to take to SCOTUS.  They ignore that and charge me with MISDEMEANOR POSSESSION OF POT as part of a felony FTA (Failure to appear), that they prosecute across the Courthouse for 18 months, and 7 Courts, until all 10 ditch, (Judges recuse themselves from the Case),

I kicked their asses!  I am left here to celebrate alone in my mausoleum with a plate of gruel served on a soapy tray.  At least I can use that as an excuse.

I’m NOT crying – my eyes are running from the soapy tray.

October 28, 2019 will mark the longest I’ve ever done, (in prison).  January 20, 2020 will be half-way-home-day.  I can’t comprehend this time frame.  So I put my heart into doing ONE MORE DAY – an hour for every minute…

MWAZ!

KP

TKP1

These words of TKP Thorne Peters will be the last I will ever read or hear from him.  It is sad.  It is sad that a State (or a Country) can be so corrupt as to let someone die under such horrid conditions in a single cage without any sympathy or concern for them what-so-ever.  Unfortunately Thorne is not the first person this has happened to and will not be the last.  This is what we have become.  A Country that cares not for it’s Citizens, but only for their power and greed and punitive rights.  Rights?  Yeah, their rights!  Not ours.

We will never know how this Case would have ended, or if the corruption would have been exposed.  We only know how it did end, with a great person, and Activist dying in the Shelby County Correctional System – The Penal Farm.

The Book which he was writing will eventually be published and much more information about his days in HELL will be exposed.  We may never find out the truth about HOW he ended up dying, alone, in that CAGE, in one night’s time. 

Of course an autopsy will be performed – probably already has been, but will we ever really know the truth?  Most likely not.  It      really doesn’t matter what they tell us such as “no foul play is         suspected”, because there isn’t a chance in HELL that they will         incriminate themselves in this matter. 

Thorne was a self proclaimed Atheist, however when I wrote him letters I would always tell him God Bless You.  I believe God has/will bless him as he was martyred for his beliefs that humans should be free and have unalienable rights.  Everything he did was done to help humanity.

Oddly enough, in another letter from Thorne recently he stated;

I have been in this cell for a year.  I have another 26 months to go…so far.  If I am convicted at my next trial I will receive 36 more months.  I will be in this cell for the duration.  The aspect of such a trial and tribulation may drive me to find God…at least until I get outta here! 

We had disagreements on how he presented himself to others, such as when he downed people for medical marijuana activism – But in fact he was NOT downing them at all – Just trying to get their attention as to what they were doing – giving their own unalienable rights away to legislation which was, is, and will continue to be the downfall of all Humanity – If we do not stop it.

We are all fighting in the same War!  We are all fighting for everyone, not just a few!  All humanity deserves the same unalienable rights!  We may have differing opinions on how to do this – but we all want the same outcome – FREEDOM!

On November 4th, one day after the fact, the Commercial Appeal published the story of his death;

Thorne Peters, ‘The Kingpin’ who waged war against pot laws, dies in Shelby County prison

In their article they wrote the following;

This year the appeals court affirmed his four-year sentence, citing among other things the following Facebook post in which Peters threatened to shoot people who came to take his drugs:

“I was just sitting around hoping some sorry want to be wigger, (expletive) was going to stop by with his partner to rob me of all this weed and money, I’m holding, so I can take target practice on their sorry asses. If you know anybody that wants to try me, let them know, I will be up all night, armed and dangerous.”

I was not there when this was said (written) so I have no way of knowing the actual thoughts behind it at the time, but I would never believe for a minute that he would in fact do such a thing.  I am from Kentucky, and many times we have, in general conversation, made similar remarks amongst ourselves, just in jest – but we would never actually do such a thing and I believe it was in extremely bad taste to even print such a quote.

I also do not believe that he had a gun at his disposal – in his home!

Thorne was living what he believed in and did it to the best of his ability – and he was crucified for it.  He never hurt anyone. 

He believed in Our freedom, and he fought for it until the end.

In closing, I leave you with this,

God Bless Thorne Peters!

Lord, please Bless Ms. Linda Harrah during this most difficult time.

It is a sad day and with a heavy heart I recognize that my Friend in deed Thorne Peters has passed away while being a political prisoner in Tennessee. Thorne fought for everyone’s freedom not only his own. There is no freedom unless everyone is free. The cornerstone of freedom of his Teaching is “No Men’s Rea”….

No Men’s Rea Which is short for the Latin Phrase “Actus Reus No Facit Reum Nisi Men’s Sit Rea”.This translates to English to ” For the act to be guilty, the mind must be guilty., And for the mind to be guilty the act must be criminal with intent to do harm to a person, property or puppy” . In short, no guilty mind, no crime , no time.

We are free to do what we want as long as we don’t hurt anyone. Thorne Peters taught of No Men’s Rea, how legislation enslaves us, Freedom ends where legislation begins and if we go free they go broke, touched many.

Thorne was standing up against to Shelby County law enforcement and judges and the Ministers of Injustice that conspired to deny Thorne his Justice, due process and conspired to frame him for something he didn’t do. Thorne was fighting the system from the inside by using his malicious prosecution and making those whom conspired against him accountable by putting them on trial.

Shelby County did their best to silence him. Thornes teaching will never be silenced. For those not familiar and blessed to know Thorne you can go to ThornePeters.com .There you will see his videos, his music and poetry he wrote. . For those who know Thorne please consider going to ThornePeters.com and clicking on the Freedom Fund. Their is still a lot of work to do for freedom, extra costs, dogs to feed and we need to help Linda Harrah to keep those home fires burning.

Thorne just finished writing a book and I believe the title is Fully Free from Jail. I hope it gets published soon as those were his last words to us. .

I want to share a fond memory many of us have of Thorne. Thorne was prosecuted a convicted in a kangaroo court for a crime he didn’t commit. On the day he was to go to court for sentencing Thorne had a surprise. Thorne set up a table and opened up Tennessees first pot dispensary on the court house steps. We thought he would be arrested and charged immediately. Instead, Law enforcement was hiding. News cameras were their. Thorne sold pot on the court house steps without being arrested for about 2 hours. Thorne was never, charged or convicted of it. Proving No Men’s Rea works.

There is a video at ThornePeters.com . As a disciple of Thorne I vow to put forth his Teaching and continue the best I can by his example. The Bible says their is no greater love then a man lay down his life for a friend. Thorne did that for his friends in deed.We were all his “friends in deed”. I can still hear Thorne when he would say ” May you look inward, outward and upward to find Peace Love and Stars”.

I love you my Brother. Your brother and friend in deed!

Jesse Ventura Considering Presidential Run

jesse ventura 2019

Jesse Ventura is considering running for President as an independent. “I have that voice in the back of my head that says to me, ‘if not to me, then who?'”

Ventura gave his first American TV interview in 3 years to “The Issue Is: with Elex Michaelson.” He says only a 3rd party candidate could truly unite our polarized country. When he was elected governor of Minnesota, Ventura said Donald J. Trump reached out to him & they were friends. Now, he’s not a fan of President Trump as commander in chief. “The first night of boot camp, there’s one person who will break down, wet their pants, cry for their mom…that’s Donald Trump.” Ventura talked about cannabis, climate change, wrestling, and more in this unedited, in depth interview.

Latest Update–Thorne Peters–Memphis TN Prison…

Please view video linked below from Ms. Linda Harrah, at the Memphis, Tennessee Penal Farm:

thorne 10.18.19

On Wednesday, October 16th, Ms. Linda Harrah visited TKP Thorne Peters at the Penal Farm in Memphis, TN, where he has been incarcerated since April 3, 2018.

They were not allowed personal visitation however, they were able to view and speak to each other through video conference, according to Ms. Linda Harrah.

Judge William Acree, a “traveling Judge” for the State of Tennessee, ceded the case.  D.A. Amy Weirich did not want the trial to proceed, so therefore the trial for “selling pot on the Courthouse steps” is NOT going to Trial.  Note letter from TBI below on cannabis prosecution policy currently in place.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, (TBI),  investigation into Courthouse corruption would have to be approved by D.A. Amy Weirich first, which will not happen. 

TBI

The above letter, sent out by TBI,  states that the testing in marijuana cases will “only be performed on felony amounts of plant material and at District Attorney’s request if needed for trial.”

Slowly, small amounts of Marijuana, usually an ounce or less, are being ignored, and/or thrown out of Court and not prosecuted.  That is a win for the general public who only seeks to purchase a small amount of black market product.  However, it still leaves many people behind in harms way of the law, because in fact, the  illegality of Marijuana is still very much alive.  Those who have grown their own plants, or purchased an amount that could be attributed to “trafficking” can be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  Many people are languishing in prison right now over a plant that NEVER should have been made illegal to begin with!  The fight isn’t over, in fact it’s only just begun!

For those reasons, a major Federal Repeal is necessary and must be pursued.  As well, “no mens rea” should apply to all personal cases in every State.  We are in fact at war and we must continue to fight until the battle is won!

Don’t forget the ones, our Brothers and Sisters, who have been taken from their families and forced into a cage like animals, for using the Cannabis plant, or any other plant!

Federal Court Blocks South Dakota Laws Suppressing Pipeline Protests

A federal court today blocked enforcement of the unconstitutional provisions of several South Dakota laws, including the recently-enacted “Riot Boosting” Act, that threaten activists who encourage or organize protests, particularly protests of the Keystone XL pipeline, with fines, civil liabilities, and/or criminal penalties of up to 25 years in prison.

In granting plaintiff’s motion for a preliminary injunction, U.S. District Judge Lawrence L. Piersol wrote: “Imagine that if these riot boosting statutes were applied to the protests that took place in Birmingham, Alabama, what might be the result? … Dr. King and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference could have been liable under an identical riot boosting law[.]”

The lawsuit was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and ACLU of South Dakota on behalf of four organizations: the Sierra Club, NDN Collective, Dakota Rural Action, and the Indigenous Environmental Network; and two individuals: Nick Tilsen with NDN Collective and Dallas Goldtooth with Indigenous Environmental Network. All are currently protesting or planning to protest the Keystone XL pipeline and/or encouraging others to do so.

“The so-called ‘Riot Boosting’ Act was clearly intended to suppress constitutionally-protected, peaceful protests of the Keystone XL pipeline,” said Stephen Pevar, senior staff attorney in the ACLU’s Racial Justice Program. “We’re glad the court recognized that these vague and overbroad laws threaten the First Amendment rights of South Dakotans on every side of the issue.”

South Dakota’s “Riot Boosting” Act joins a recently growing number of government efforts to stifle protests, particularly those led by Indigenous and environmental activists, often in opposition to pipelines.

Dallas Goldtooth, Indigenous Environmental Network: “As Dakota, it is our duty to protect the land and water, and speaking up on behalf of these sacred elements is essential to that endeavor. This decision is a good step in protecting our right to organize, educate and promote a sustainable future for all generations of life.”

John Harter, Dakota Rural Action board chair: “Our opposition to the pipeline construction may agitate Gov. Noem, but the First Amendment guarantees us the right to make our voices heard. We’re thrilled that the state is blocked from enforcing the anti-protest laws as the case

Continuing corruption abounds in the saga of Phoenix Tears and the legalization of Cannabis in Canada…

Continuing corruption abounds in the saga of Phoenix Tears and the legalization of Cannabis in Canada.

Corruption is rampant in the U.S. and every other Country on a continuing basis as we seek to regain human rights and freedoms for all people.  Particularly Cannabis and Plant rights.

The story focused on in this article is the one of Kevin Moore and Daren McCormick, members of “Phoenix Tears”, a group of activists  in Nova Scotia who are trying to maintain ability to treat Cancer patients and others with debilitating illnesses with RSO Cannabis Oil.

Image may contain: plant, outdoor and nature

They have been persecuted from the beginning – – meaning since Rick Simpson was forced to leave the Country after publicizing the “healing oil” for all its worth as a medicine in the late nineties.

Be aware that the “legalization” of Cannabis/Marijuana is just the beginning of the control of this plant use and that we have gained absolutely no freedom in asking the Government(s) to “allow” us to use it thru “Legislation”.

It was a Freedom which we already had, through Our Unalienable Rights as Human Beings on this Planet!

It has been stolen through the U.N. and Our own Government’s Legislation and Statutes and Treaties and Controlled Substances Act.

Stand for Freedom! 

Fight for the Freedom from the Prohibition of Your Freedom’s!

I Never Smoked Marijuana — But I’m Serving Life In Prison Over A Marijuana Charge

CESAL: I Never Smoked Marijuana — But I’m Serving Life In Prison Over A Marijuana Charge

By Craig Cesal

Aug 27, 2019

“I sentence you to a term of natural life imprisonment, without the possibility of parole.”

These were the words I heard just months after the events of Sept. 11, 2001. You see, at that time, the news was filled with theories that drug dealers finance terrorists, and I had just been convicted of my first felony: conspiring to distribute marijuana. This was the newest foray into the “War on Drugs.”

The government never claimed that I bought, sold, or even used marijuana, but rather my business repaired semi-trucks for a company that trafficked marijuana. I didn’t think I was doing anything wrong, as I didn’t do anything with marijuana. I was wrong, according to the federal court in Gainesville, Georgia. My business, nestled near Chicago, was auctioned by lawyers in Georgia to pay for their services to secure the life sentence, after my home and savings were spent.

Two months ago, recreational marijuana was approved for sale by the Illinois legislature. Some of my business equipment is likely being used again to repair trucks that haul marijuana.

For over 17 years, I have watched robbers, rapists and even murderers come and go from prison. Last year, a guy in my cellblock who killed two federal marshals was paroled after serving 30 years.

I’ve been watching the news, and I’m waiting to see if we prisoners will get the right to vote.

Here at the federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, the cornerstone, engraved with “A.D. 1937,” reminds me that the prison opened the same year the federal government made marijuana illegal. The construction workers likely used pot while they built the prison. Looking out from my job at the prison factory, where we make blankets for the military, I can see “Death House” — where Timothy McVeigh and others died. He spent less time in federal prison than me, although his current housing is likely worse.

From Cellblock D, a couple of weeks ago before the time I wrote this, John Walker Lindh, the so-called “White Taliban” who shot CIA agents in Afghanistan, went home after serving his 20-year sentence. He came in after me, and with good time credits, served only 17 years.

To my knowledge, he never aided others who schlepped marijuana. Whew, that’s a good thing, or he’d still be here in prison with me. He was convicted of providing aid to terrorists, but for anything related to marijuana.

Prison is intended to teach offenders not to violate the law again, or simply, for those, like me, the judge deemed irredeemable, to teach the public, who may be thinking of something related to marijuana. At times, I scratch my head trying to fathom who is learning what as a result of my sentence. Bradley Manning made WikiLeaks a household word, and President Obama sent him home because he wore a dress. Maxwell Klinger, of “M*A*S*H” fame, had no such luck.

Obama also turned down my clemency request. Just what am I, or anyone else, supposed to learn from my life-for-pot sentence?

The Terre Haute prison abuts the Wabash River, which separates Indiana from Illinois. From the right places, I can see Illinois across the river, where I lived, and where marijuana distribution, and thereby marijuana conspiracy, is encouraged by state tax collectors. Did I merely have bad timing in selling services to marijuana traffickers from my perch in Illinois? Nope, federal DEA agents are still nabbing distributors in Illinois, well, because they still can. Oh, and the money from the marijuana dispensaries likely pay their salaries. Hopefully, I’ll learn my lesson in prison.

I imagine I can learn from the Federal Bureau of Prison’s paycheck collectors charged with caging me. The prison buildings are surrounded by tall fences, razor wire and cameras. No one from the media, from a family, or from an auditor can get in to see what staffers actually do inside the fence. Guards often go days without so much as seeing an inmate, if they even show up for work. Most will spend more years receiving retirement benefits from the job than they spent actually working.

A sentence of life means a sentence until death. Staff are flummoxed trying to discern what to put in the Federal Bureau of Prisons Form for my release date. Death won’t work. It must be a number. The last time I checked, they were writing 2028. Remember, nobody is coming over the fence and razor wire to check on the paperwork. But no release is imminent.

The sentencing judge determined I am a marijuana reprobate. I am thus irredeemable, and unworthy of anything other than final damnation in prison. Murderers are released after 13.4 years on average, according to the Department of Justice, and a terrorist can go home after 17 years. But I am a prisoner of the War on Drugs. There’s no hope for me under existing federal law.

I’ve learned my lesson, and lawmakers should be pushed to learn a lesson. Federal drug laws, especially marijuana laws, are long overdue for reform. The “fix” must also include sensible relief for prisoners of the failed War on Drugs.

Craig Cesal is serving a sentence of life without the possibility of parole in Indiana’s Terre Haute prison for a “marijuana” offense. He co-owned a towing company that recovered and repaired trucks for a rental company, some of which were used by smugglers to transport marijuana. He graduated from Montini High School in Lombard, Illinois in 1977. His daughter, Lauren, has obtained more than 300,000 signatures on a petition calling for clemency.”

Wayward Bill is at Seattle Hempfest 2019

American flag and pot plant

This weedend (pun intended), “Where’s Wayward Bill” was attending the Washington State, Seattle Hempfest, now in it’s 28th year, originally began in 1991!

Wayward has attended a number of these events in the past and has always made a great showing for the USMjParty.

The USMjParty in coming up on it’s 17th Anniversary on November 25, 2019,  and this was a great event to attend to mark the occasion.  I only wish I could have had the same experience, in that I’ve never been able to make the trip, however, it will remain on my “bucket-list” to be fulfilled at some point, (I hope)!

Getting back to the task at hand, the following are some links to posts originally made on Facebook that marked the occasion.

First of all, it’s technically not a cannabis festival. “It’s a protest festival,” McPeak explained. “The Constitution of the United States says we have the right to peacefully assemble and air disagreements with the government.” That’s how the fest started, back in the summer of 1991 — as an offshoot of the 1990-91 Gulf War protests and peace actions McPeak helped organize. The purpose wasn’t to light up a joint, but to express public outrage over the fact that lighting up a joint could lead to prison.

THORNE PETERS: 387 DAYS AND STILL COUNTING, IN THE MEMPHIS, TN PENAL SYSTEM–STILL FIGHTING FOR OUR RIGHTS…

thorne_peters_portraitcrop

SINCE APRIL 3rd, 2018 Thorne Peters has been incarcerated in the prison system of MemphisTennessee.

As he fights for his own rights and OUR rights as a cannabis consumers,  he also fights for prisoners rights from within the walls of the Penal Farm in Memphis. 

May 2, 2019 is the next court date scheduled and will be in Judge Campbell’s Courtroom.  Judge Carter and Judge Lammey are recused from the case.

A very in depth article has been published at “MemphisTruth.Org” in which Thorne Peters ordeal thus far has been featured.  I encourage everyone to view it.

“We are political prisoners.  We are having our rights violated by a prohibition.”

“We are consenting adults in a free society, with free will, committing acts of consensual behavior, that are nobody else’s business.  Yet the Government industrial complex, the legal industrial complex, continue to make it their business.”

*Medical Pot – “Why can’t we all have pot?”

*Decriminalized Pot – Where can I buy some legal decriminalized pot?”

“There is no such thing as a non-violent criminal, all crime is violent”

As written in the U.S. Marijuana Party introduction, “More Americans are in jail today for marijuana offenses than at any previous time in American history.”

These people who are unjustly incarcerated are our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, children, cousins, other family members and friends.  They do not deserve to be in a cage for a NON CRIME!  We are NOT CRIMINALS!  We are peaceful, law-abiding and loving Citizens who deserve the right to live in peace.

We must do everything we can to help these individuals fight for their own liberty and OURS!

The war will never be over until each and every one of these people are free and have all their rights restored.

Number of people arrested for a marijuana law violation in 2017: 659,700

Cooper, 38, headed off to continue serving his sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole for conspiracy to sell marijuana.

CAN DO CLEMENCY .COM has many people who have been incarcerated for “Pot” for life sentences.  Please view and share.

Meanwhile, while we wait to be free again …

#WeAreKY But #ThisIsKY…Story of Elihu Shepherd

The incident leading to Gary’s killing began on a Sunday morning in August of 1993, when a helicopter on loan from the Kentucky National Guard was landed by officers of the Governor’s Marijuana Strike Force in a field adjacent to Gary Shepherd’s rural home. An officer familiar with Gary approached and told him that he was going to come in and cut down the dozen plants which were maturing around the perimeter of his property. Gary denied him entrance, saying it would happen “over [his] dead body.” Using Gary’s invocation of this metaphor as a pretext for his murder, the officer departed and called in additional officers, who covertly blockaded all routes to Gary’s house and began to monitor his movements.  LINK

In August of 1993, in Rockcastle County Kentucky, a four year old child watched his Father, Gary Shephard shot and killed by the Sheriff’s Department and Kentucky State Police, over a few Cannabis plants which his father used for medicine for pain and PTSD after serving in the Vietnam War…

This is his story…
