GENUINE U.S. MARIJUANA PARTY T-SHIRTS From Cave City Kentucky!

GENUINE U.S. MARIJUANA PARTY T-SHIRTS !

On April 20th, 2018 I received the following email from “Stripe”.

“Thanks for using Stripe.While we hate to give you anything less than a great experience, it does seem that your business is in violation of the Stripe Services Agreement, section A.7.b (“Prohibited Businesses and Activities”). Specifically, we are unable to accept payments for marijuana dispensaries and related businesses as mentioned here: https://stripe.com/prohibited-businesses.  These regulations are firm, so we sadly have no flexibility with them.”

As a result of the word “Marijuana”, which frequently appears on this website, as well as Cannabis, Hemp and a few other subjects that are not deemed appropriate for banking services, I have not been able to secure any local (U.S. based) “Merchant services”.

This means that I have no way to process online payments because my “Bank” (which shall remain unnamed) cannot accept a flow of money from a “Marijuana based website” either!

I was advised by someone I spoke to at a “merchant service company” that I would probably have to use an “offshore” bank account, which I will not do.

Therefore, for the foreseeable future, until the U.S. Government does something to open up the banking system to people like myself, I will only be able to process a sale via Cash, Check or Money Order.

This is very unfair to small businesses which are dependent upon the banking system!  However, those who are large Corporate entities seem to be managing to keep their businesses flowing…How, I am not sure?  I suppose they all have “offshore accounts”??

If you would like to purchase a “U.S. Marijuana Party” T-SHIRT, they are still for SALE!

The sad news is that the only way that I can complete the purchase for you is if you can send $25.00 (TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS AND NO/CENTS) IN CHECK OR MONEY ORDER MADE OUT TO:

SHEREE KRIDER LLC

and mail to:  70 Mammoth Cave Loop, Cave City, Kentucky  42127.

If you have questions please email to shereekrider@usmjparty.com, or text me at 270-834-7332.

I would appreciate any sales I can get as I collect NO income for the websites and other work I do online and it helps to pay for the websites and other costs.

Please do allow four weeks for delivery just in case I have to have some printed up!

Thank You!

The USMjParty…

The U.S. Marijuana Party is a news, information and opinion sharing website which focuses  on the repeal of prohibition, particularly Cannabis, but other natural growing plants as well.

We believe that we inherit unalienable rights with birth upon this planet which include the right to the growing and use of plants without repercussion from any authority.

A plant grown in/on our own property that is processed in any way for personal use and NOT to be sold to another has no reason to be regulated.  The Government has authority over commerce. Regulation and taxation is allowed in the open market – which is where Cannabis should be, for marketing purposes.

Those products made from Cannabis which are medications and are sold by pharmaceutical companies and promoted by Physicians should be regulated accordingly.

Medications are manufactured by pharmaceutical companies and as such should be regulated to ensure they’re safe for consumption.

Make our gardens LAWFUL and REPEAL PROHIBITION now!

We have the right to grow nature in our homes and gardens!

The ultimate goal MUST remain REPEAL and Nullify Cannabis Prohibition thru the United Nations and our U.S. Federal Government.

The legalization statutes which have been passed to date, particularly recreational use are a legal way within a State to have commerce with an unlawful controlled substance, according to the U.N. Treaties.

”The growing illegal economy supports and enables corrupt officials, criminals, terrorists, and insurgents to mingle and conduct business with another. We must build our own networks to fight these illicit networks and break their corruptible influence…”LINK

Bearing this in mind, the ONLY way to truly break free from the Drug War is REPEAL that which was put in place to benefit the NWO.

Until we accomplish this, we will never be free from prosecution for using the Cannabis plant and potentially many others.

The Legalization rush is on. And just as the Cannabis Businesses are pushing forward, so will the policing of the businesses. They will continue to fill our jails and prisons with laws written just for Cannabis user’s whether they be legal or not.

In the meantime, while we fight for the freedom of Cannabis user’s let God keep our Patient’s safe from undue harm by the corruption of our own Government and it’s war upon God’s plant.

May the Lord Bless You and Keep You,

Pushing for legalization: Alabama housewife to marijuana activist

Loretta Nall remembers the first time she smoked marijuana.

“I was about 12 years old at a Ratt/Queensreich concert at the BJCC (Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex),” Nall, who grew up in the east Alabama town of Ashland, said in an interview with AL.com.

That was 30 years ago and since then Nall has become one of the most outspoken advocates for the legalization of pot in the nation.

She formed the U.S. Marijuana Party in 2002; ran for Alabama governor in 2006 on a platform to legalize pot; created the Alabama Compassionate Care group to fight for use of marijuana for treatment of disease; and in 2010 was named by the magazine Skunk as one of the top 100 most influential women in Cannabis.

Nall says she wasn’t always an activist and there were periods when she didn’t smoke weed – particularly when she was pregnant with her two children.

Until 2002, Nall had been a housewife and mother with only a few minor traffic violations, hadn’t thought about running for office, and wasn’t public in her outcry for the legalization of pot. But two things happened that year that would change that.

It was in 2002 that she connected online with Marc Emery, dubbed Canada’s “Prince of Pot.”

Nall said that in 2002 Emery asked her to come up to Canada and meet. “Within a week of my returning I had helicopters buzzing my house and (police on) ATVs in my yard,” she said.

Law enforcement told her they saw marijuana growing on her property, Nall said. But there wasn’t any, she said.

Nall believes that law enforcement converged on her property because she had visited Emery, who she said was near the top of federal drug agents’ watch list.

At that time, however, police didn’t try to search her house – at least not right away.

Soon after the raid, Nall sent a letter to the editor at The Birmingham News pushing for legalization of pot. It was titled: “Going to pot, and so what?” She wrote that not all marijuana users fit the “stereotypical stoner-without-a-clue image.”

Lobbying against sin: Baptist leader ready to fight marijuana

The Rev. Joe Godfrey is Alabama’s point man when it comes to lobbying against sin.

“We are not criminals who rob, steal or otherwise cause harm to the fabric of society, and it is time to stop treating us as if we were,” Nall wrote in 2002, long before states began to break with federal prohibitions on recreational marijuana. “It is time to demand an end to cannabis prohibition and the harsh drug laws that do more harm to society than the drug itself will ever do. It is time for change.” 

Six days after that letter to the editor appeared police returned with a search warrant, finding rolling papers, a scale and 0.87 grams of marijuana inside her mobile home.

“I think I was the first one to get the media’s attention (for pot legalization),” Nall said. “They (police) turned me into an activist by raiding my home and trying to take my children and violating my first amendment rights.”

Loretta Nall: Alabama Marijuana Advocate

A Tallapoosa County Sheriff’s investigator who had secured the search warrant for Nall’s home denied after the raid that the warrant was based on Nall’s letter to the editor. “Of course, it didn’t help her out any,” said the investigator, who would not say where the information for the search warrant did come from.

Nall was arrested and convicted of misdemeanor charges of possessing marijuana and paraphernalia.

She appealed and in April 2007 a judge dismissed her conviction because prosecutors failed to respond to Nall’s motion to suppress evidence seized in the 2002 raid.

Police used her letter to the editor in The Birmingham News as reason for the search, Nall says.

She became a guest host for segments on Emery’s online Pot TV show for about 2 1/2 years. The role included making trips around the country to cover pot-related news.

“She got all fired up,” Emery said of Nall in a recent interview with AL.com. “She has always been an advocate for legalization in a very inhospitable state.”

It’s always tough to advocate for legalization in a red state and particularly in the Bible Belt, Emery added. But, he said, “at no point does the Bible advocate against cannabis,” he said.

In 2010, Emery pleaded guilty to federal charges in the United States. He was sentenced to five years for manufacturing marijuana. Among the  allegations were that he shipped marijuana seeds over the border into the United States. He was released in 2014. And two months ago he was arrested by Montreal police after opening six illegal marijuana dispensaries around that city, according to the Toronto Sun newspaper. His trial is pending on that case.

“They turned me into an activist by raiding my home and trying to take my children ..” – Loretta Nall

Meanwhile, Canada this spring will likely consider legislation to legalize recreational marijuana nationwide.

In 2002, when Nall formed and became the first president of the U.S. Marijuana Party, recreational marijuana was banned in all states. Today eight states and Washington D.C. have legalized recreational marijuana. More than half the country has legalized marijuana for medical use and surveys show most Americans believe marijuana should be legal.

Nall’s party has also expanded with the changing attitudes. Today the group lists active chapters in 17 states. Yet Alabama isn’t one of them.

Nall left the group in 2004 but she said she still acts as an adviser. She later entered the race for Governor of Alabama in 2006 with the Libertarian party. Her top platform issue was legalization of marijuana.

Nall ran a colorful campaign that got national attention. Campaign materials included a photo of the woman displaying her ample cleavage above the words ”More of these boobs.” Below were photos of other candidates, including Gov. Bob Riley, and the words ”And less of these boobs.”

Her campaign sold bosomed-themed T-shirts, ”stash boxes,” and ”anti-state” thong underwear.

Nall, however, couldn’t get her name on Alabama ballots because the Libertarian Party couldn’t get the required 40,000 signatures. So she ran a write-in campaign. She said she got about 2,500 votes of the write-ins that were counted.

After the election Nall continued to write for Cannabis Culture magazine (a Marc Emery publication) and briefly branched her activism into another issue. In 2007, after Alabama outlawed the sale of sex toys,  Nall started a “Sex Toys for Troy King” drive that included her sending an inflatable pig to the then Alabama attorney general’s office.

Nall also started the Alabamian Compassionate Care group and pushed the Alabama Legislature for the passage of the Michael Phillips Compassionate Care Act in 2010. After that failed she pushed for it again in 2012.

That act was designed to protect from arrest and prosecution physicians who recommend marijuana and patients who use marijuana as medicine, Nall wrote in a 2012 op-ed piece for The Birmingham News.

Nall noted that other laws allowing limited medical use of marijuana were approved by state legislators in recent years. Carly’s Law and Leni’s Law, approved in 2016, allow people with seizure disorders or other debilitating medical conditions to use cannabidiol, a product derived from marijuana plants.

“Anything like that is progress,” Nall said. But, she said, “there are lots of people that doesn’t apply to that can’t get any help.”

Still, Nall hopes one day the state will legalize recreational use of marijuana in Alabama. “We’re still way behind,” Nall said.

“I’m still in favor of the legalization of marijuana … Retail sales. The whole nine yards, like has been done in (other states),” Nall said. “You ought to be able to grow at home like you do tomatoes.”

Nall, however, agrees that there needs to be age limitations on it use.

Only when voters make state legislators change direction or the legislators see the tax money that’s to be had will Alabama ever get recreational pot, Nall said. “My money’s on the money,” she said.

By legalizing pot, it might keep people from getting addicted to opiates and other harder drugs. “Going to drug dealers (for pot) exposes them to harder drugs,” she said.

Alabama also could see an increase in taxes from the legalized sale of pot, Nall said. That money could be spent by the state on issues such as prison reform and Medicaid funding, she said.

Nall noted Colorado’s collection of millions of dollars in taxes on marijuana sales.

Licensed and regulated marijuana stores in Colorado sold nearly $1 billion worth of recreational and medical cannabis in 2015, according to a story from The Cannabist, an offshoot publication of The Denver Post.

Colorado collected more than $135 million in marijuana taxes and fees in 2015, of which more than $35 million was earmarked for school construction projects, according to The Cannabist.

Right now people who are arrested in Alabama for marijuana possession are often placed in drug courts where they have to pay high court costs and fees and prevent people from keeping a job, Nall said.

Personal issues have kept her out of the spotlight over the past five or so years, Nall said. That has included shedding an opiate addiction, she said.

Her addiction began after she had a “pretty bad” broken foot in 2007, Nall said.

After foot surgery, she was given the narcotic Percocet for pain. “All I can tell you it was a love affair from day one,” she said.

Nall said she has been “clean” for two years now from the opiate addiction.  

Nall wants the public to know that her use of marijuana wasn’t to blame for her opiate addiction. “I didn’t start opiates because I smoked weed. I started because I broke my foot,” Nall said.

“Suboxone and marijuana helped me recover from opiate addiction,” Nall said.

Nall, 42, is currently working as a 24-hour a day care-giver in the small Coosa County town of Kellyton, which is near Alexander City.

Asked if she was concerned that giving an interview might bring more trouble for her, she replied: “There’s no one on earth who doesn’t know I smoke weed.”

Absentee Voting Starts Friday June 24th? Yikes! I’m On The Ballot, And Who Knows Who I Am?

Cris CSPAN VTBy CrisEricson2016 | Wed, June 22 2016

Absentee voting starts Friday June 24th? Yikes! I’m on the ballot, and who knows who I am?
The majority of media have blasted across Vermont that there are only 3 Democratic Party candidates for governor – NOT true! There are 5! If you want to see all five Democratic Party candidates for governor of Vermont for the very first time together, then please attend the Democratic Party debate tomorrow, Thursday, June 23rd being held at the Congregational Church, 77 Main Street, Springfield, Vermont starting at 6 PM for socializing with everyone, with the debating starting at 7 PM.
This is the first time you will see me with the other candidates, and as of today, June 22nd, I have NEVER met any of them. I was certified by the Secretary of State Election Division on May 3rd, and now over 6 weeks later, ONE DAY before absentee voting starts, I’m finally included in one candidate forum with all of the other Democratic Party candidates.
Wow! I stare out the window and the sky cries with rain. Is this Democracy? Does “inclusiveness” only mean people of any race, creed, color, religion or racial background who have $400,000.00 in their bank account?
Does the Democratic Party definition of “inclusiveness” EXCLUDE all candidates who don’t have the money to pay the mass media for advertising?
Does the Democratic Party definition of “inclusiveness” EXCLUDE all candidates who haven’t gone down on their knees and been baptized with doubtful dollars from political action committees, corporations and rich people with disguised agendas?
I certainly feel for Emily Peyton who was treated like (omit all properly descriptive Vermont language) crap by the Republican Party in a previous election where she dared to run without the apparently required millions of dollars.
O.K., enought whining and complaining, some people will look at their election ballot, with the absentee voting starting so soon, and vote for me because they are the people who put the quarter in the bubble gum machine hoping for the prize.
But, what does this election process, of the rich and by the rich and for the rich, and oh, YOU, You can vote but don’t you dare participate as a candidate if you aren’t rich – what does this really do to the United States of America?
Just turn the clock back to last fall when there were a lot of good solid candidates for President of the United States of America for the Republican Party, and a lot of good solid Democratic Party candidates for President of the U.S.A. What happened to all of them?
The mass media and those particular people who totally and completely control our Country by controlling who is and who is not allowed to participate in political candidate debates, decided to divide and conquer. They allowed the richest candidates in the prime time debates, and the candidates the controllers liked less in the under-debates, and the candidates the controllers of debates didn’t like at all – well, they were dust in the wind, to be blown away.
And did you get what you wanted? Did you end up with the richest Republican Party candidate for President of the United States of America? Did you end up with the richest Democratic Party candidate for President of the U.S.A. ARE YOU SATISFIED? IS THIS WHAT YOU REALLY WANTED, DONALD TRUMP and HILLARY CLINTON?
Now, wind the clock back again to last fall, would you have preferred to have heard more from the OTHER Democratic Party and Republican Party candidates who were fully and legally qualified last fall?

History of the U.S. Marijuana Party

ORIGINAL 239x211

 

Long before Loretta Nall campaigned on her cleavage, the activist’s cause was cannabis. The Alabama resident gained national attention during her 2006 gubernatorial campaign when she produced T-shirts with the caption “More of these boobs …” (with a photo of Nall in a low-cut shirt) “… And less of these boobs” (next to photos of her opponents). But the write-in candidate’s political roots date back to 2002, when a misdemeanor arrest for possession was the spark behind her forming the U.S. Marijuana Party (USMJP). The group — which demands “an end to the unconstitutional prohibition of marijuana” — has official party chapters in seven states, including Colorado, Illinois and Kentucky. While Nall left the USMJP to be a Libertarian Party governor nominee, the group continues to back candidates in local, state and national elections under the leadership of Richard Rawlings, who is currently running for Congress in Illinois.

Richard J Rawlings

In 2003 I started my quest for knowledge regarding Cannabis and Medical Cannabis.  In 2005 I met Ms. Tonya Davis and accompanied her to a few meetings and festivals in Ohio.  There I met Lynne Wilson and also Rev. Mary Thomas Spears who has become my closest friend since then. I remember asking Tonya Davis in 2005 if there was a political way to beat the beast so to speak, and asked her about “REPEAL”  but at the time most people were in to “Legalization”.

I went home, looked up the U.S. Marijuana Party as I had occasion to come upon it previously on the internet and had created an account there.  I made a phone call to Richard Rawlings.  I had posted on the then kentucky.usmjparty.com  but it had been taken down right before I contacted him and in fact that was my reason for calling, to find out what happened to Kentucky.

It so happened that this was about the same time as the inquiry into Marc Emery was being made by the U.S. DEA for shipping Cannabis seeds by mail to the U.S. (See this Link).  At the time I knew nothing about what was going on.  Richard put the Kentucky site back up and gave me Administrator status over it.  That was the beginning of my journey with the U.S. Marijuana Party.

From the beginning I was a “Repealer” and posted as such on the Kentucky site.  But it would be a number of years before the Party itself crossed over to being a true repeal group.

About 20 or more States were lost after Marc Emery was indicted.  I stayed on.  I do not think I even realized that he had been involved with the USMjParty to any extent and I do not believe he did have any involvement, at least by the time I started in Kentucky which was 2005.

Eventually in 2010 Richard offered me V.P. status which I hesitantly accepted because I never wanted to be a politician, it just was not my line of work so to speak.  However, after much thought I did accept and we continued on with the USMjParty even though there was no income to be had for doing it.  It was a passion and a way of life – not one to collect “funds” from.

In 2011 Richard started to become ill and by the later part of 2011 I was forced into making a decision I did not want to make but it was part of the job.  I called Bill Chengelis who was the Colorado Chair at the time and asked him to take Richard’s place as Head Chairman of the USMjParty.  I would remain on as the Kentucky Chair until the position could be filled by someone else – but that never happened.

By 2012 Richard was diagnosed with Stage IV Cancer and we stayed together until his death in February 2013.  He left me with all of his websites and the USMjParty.

I definitely did not want to be Head Chair so I decided that I would change my position considering what I had been left with to Organizer of USMjParty and I remained Kentucky Chair as well.
Since then I have focused around all the other people who have came in and out of the USMjParty as State Chairs and kept up the websites and other duties.  Today we have Chairs in Colorado, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Utah , Vermont and Oregon as well as other reporting Chapters in Hawaii, Florida, California, Idaho, Virginia, Washington State, Texas, and there are others as well waiting for a Reporter.  Please see this LINK for a Directory.

Today we push for REPEAL of the CSA as well as other Federal and U.N. laws which continue to dominate the Law even though Cannabis has been “legalized” in 23+ States.  Federally it is still an illegal substance under U.N. law via the UN Convention on Psychotropic Substances (1971) .  These are all grave issues which need to be addressed along with the commercialization and pharmaceutical takeover of this plant, which is in effect ONE plant…Cannabis Sativa L.

REPEAL is the only path to true freedom of this plant.  If we let legalization and CSA Schedule II take it over we have lost the war for the common person who wishes to grow their own on their own property without taxation.

We are “FIGHTING FOR THE FREEDOM FROM PROHIBITION OF YOUR FREEDOM’S!”
