Don’t Give Your Elephant LSD; But Grow Some Opium In Your Backyard!

New Scientist Default Image

Above:  Don’t give an Elephant LSD!

Quietly, seemingly overnight, a long time friend of the Plant prohibitionists has sprung into existence in the U.S.  The Opium Poppy plant has been grown in North Carolina, in someone’s backyard, just as the Cannabis Plant, in it’s Black Market, commercial beginning had done some 50+ years ago.

It is not at all surprising that this should happen.  After all, there are no more available places to obtain a “legal” narcotic prescription for pain – except in the most dire situations, and even then it is questionable.  What else are people supposed to do?  Kill themselves with meth and poorly concocted Heroin?  People will always have a need for pain and anxiety relief.  I believe that God knew this when He planned for this Planet and the people on it.  That is why the      Bible states:

Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every seed-bearing plant on the face of all the earth, and everytree whose fruit contains seed. They will be yoursfor food. 30And to every beast of the earth and every bird of the air and every creature that crawls upon the earth—everything that has the breath of life in it—I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so.…

Even Elephants seek out reliefAll Animals do and we are Mammals.

As I’ve stated in previous articles, the Government knew exactly what they were doing and what would happen when they set up for the “Opioid Crisis”.  It was a horrible way to begin a Culling, and many people have died because of it and many more will continue to die.  Meth has taken over the market for the less fortunate peoples in the Country.  The ones who have a better income, can survive a little better with “street drugs”, but in the end Heroin usually wins out.

We, as a People have to become smarter about how we use the God-given Plants which afford us some much needed relief.  Cannabis  is the go to plant for most common and some not so common ailments.  However, there are times when stronger medicine is required and unfortunately these stronger remedies afford addiction as well.  Although it can be argued that addiction doesn’t become as big of a problem if the substance the person is addicted to is readily available.  That being said, I certainly would not advocate for addiction! Not only is it essentially illegal, it is the worse possible condition a person can find themselves in and if you survive and come out of it you are a very strong person.  A lot of people don’t survive it.

IF you must have a narcotic for pain or anxiety, use it wisely, and never let yourself get too attached to it. 

Now, how to obtain that much needed “medicine”?  Everyone must learn to provide for themselves, not the Black Market, and be responsible for themselves.  That is why the Prohibition of Plants is so reprehensible.  We must be allowed to use the plants God put here for us to use!  No plant of any kind should ever be made illegal to grow!  Not even Opium!

There are many Plants that are naturally grown that can be used for Our own health and well-being.  One of them is Sassafras, which was removed from Root Beer some years ago in the commercial market.

One of the intended consequences of Roundup was the elimination of Dandelions!  Why wouldn’t the NWO want to eliminate such a useful plant from our grasp?

If you haven’t yet seen “Ozark” on Netflix, it is a very good show, depicting money laundering and drug trafficking in the Ozarks and elsewhere.  It was my first  experience with the thought of Opium being grown in the U.S.

Isn’t it odd that now, after the Cannabis legalization initiatives are growing Nationwide, that another “plant” that can be and IS prohibited by LAW, is starting to pick up pace…

In comes the continuation of Prohibition 2.0, Jail for Plants, to continuously fill the “much needed” Prisons around the Country whether they be “Corporate Prisons” for profit, or “County Jails”, for profit as well, because….well, they are ALL for profit!

What better way to control Mankind than to control ALL of the “Food”, which in fact IS Our medicine as well.

First Do No Harm” must be made to apply to the Government!

Basil

Basil may be a common element of Italian food, but it also has great medicinal properties. This fantastic herb can help transform both you and your garden. It is very rich in beta-carotene, a precursor to Vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for good vision, cell development, and immune health. Basil oil is rich in a compound named eugenol, which has anti-inflammatory properties and can comfort painful bones and joints just like over-the-counter ibuprofen. What’s more, it exhibits potent antibacterial properties and is effective even against antibiotic-resistant microorganisms.

Our Ancestors already knew what we now have to re-learn, how to use plants, all kinds of plants for our health.  Most people had Herb gardens that they used for medicinal purposes.  We have been essentially robbed of all of this information by having pharmaceuticals thrown at us from every direction since birth.

I am NOT saying that all pharmaceuticals are useless.  Quite the contrary.  Just that the People must be allowed to have sovereign control of what they will use for medication and how they will use it.  Plants must not be allowed to be controlled by Government entities solely for the purpose of eradicating  them from Our own personal use!

So let the Cannabis grow freely!  Let the Poppy’s grow freely!  What we choose to do with them will be good and bad, but never could it be as bad as what the Government has done with the control of ALL of Our Plants!

This issue gains even more momentum when you understand that it is not just about cannabis/hemp/marijuana. It also involves all food and plants which are coming under their jurisdiction.

Eli Lilly

Orange transparent bottle labelled "opium tincture USP (deodorized)." There is a warning label declaring the product to be poisonous.

By the 19th century, laudanum was used in many patent medicines to “relieve pain … to produce sleep … to allay irritation … to check excessive secretions … to support the system … [and] as a soporific“.[7][8] The limited pharmacopoeia of the day meant that opium derivatives were among the most effective of available treatments, so laudanum was widely prescribed for ailments from colds to meningitisto cardiac diseases, in both adults and children. Laudanum was used during the yellow fever epidemic.

Laudanum, originally, the name given by Paracelsus to a famous medical preparation of his own, composed of gold, pearls, and other items but containing opium as its chief ingredient. The name either was invented by Paracelsus from the Latin laudare (“to praise”) or was a corrupted form of ladanum (from the Persian ladan), a resinous juice or gum obtained from various kinds of the Cistus shrub. The term is now used only to describe the alcoholic tincture of opium, a 10 percent solution of opium powder dissolved in high-proof distilled spirits.

Some things will forever hold true – History repeats itself and Mother Nature will always win out!

Meanwhile in North Carolina,

$500 Million Opium Poppy Field Discovered in North Carolina

“One of our narcotics investigators came to the house looking for something else,” Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid told the Hickory Daily Record. “When he knocked on the door, the guys said, ‘I guess you’re here about the opium.'”

And there behind the house, was row after row of poppy plants.

Letters From Thorne Peters: “My message MUST reach beyond these walls to be heard by that ONE PERSON who will hear it and use it to save themselves by following the LAW over LEGISLATION…FREE BY LAW NOT SLAVE TO LEGISLATION!”

Thorne Peters 2012

After reaching out to Thorne Peters via letter about a month ago, I have since received letters back from him.  There have been ten Judges recuse themselves from the case so far, as reported by Ms. Linda Harrah on Facebook.

Thorne Peters (right) and Leo AwGoWhat (right) in an undated photo. - THORNE PETERS/THORNEPETERS.COM

On August 13th, the Memphis Flyer published that the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals upheld the original ruling and sentence on Peters’ case dealt by the Shelby County Criminal Court. A PDF of that Court case is HERE.

In a 10 page handwritten letter from Thorne Peters he said that,

“My message must reach beyond these walls to be heard by that ONE PERSON who will hear it and use it to save themselves by following the LAW over LEGISLATION!  FREE BY LAW NOT SLAVE TO LEGISLATION!

We must never forget not only Thone Peters, but ALL of the prisoners of the drug war that have so savagely been incarcerated and denied their rights and freedom, lost their families and more, because of a commerce driven NWO Agenda to control each and every one of us by legislation to do so.  Enforced by the military industrial complex, which was in fact voted upon by us when we put the people into the government industrial complex, which we created, and in which we all now live, and have been living for at least the last 200 years, (because that’s as far back as I care to go).  So it is essentially all of our faults that this scenario came to be, not on purpose, but by lack of knowledge and understanding and the all out cover up by the entities which evolved beyond our understanding and ability to react.  In short, “they” think they have us all wrapped up nicely.

Thorne states in his letter that he is facing at least 26 additional months, and possibly another 30 months “in the offing”, for a total of six years.  I surely hope and pray that this doesn’t happen.  I hope that all prisoners of prohibition will be set free soon.  There are a few States that are taking a step in the right direction, however it needs to be done at a Federal level, repeal their sentences, and mass release them all.  They are in fact prisoners of war. 

Actus Reus Non Facit Reum Nisi Mens Sit Rea

For the act to be guilty, the mind must be guilty, for the mind to be guilty, the act must be criminal.

Without further ado I will give you excerpts of the words from   “TKP Thorne Peters”, from the Memphis Tennessee Penal Farm:

————————————————

“My message must reach beyond these walls to be heard by that ONE PERSON who will hear it and use it to save themselves by following the LAW over LEGISLATION.”

“Any who stand for Bills and propositions to create LEGISLATION to REPEAL, REFORM or REDRESS THE law STAND AGAINST FREEDOM!”

“We will not be set FREE by the System that has been designed to enslave us with fees, fines, sin tax and penalties for engaging in consensual behavior that have been opined into arguments in the name of enacting LEGISLATION to save us from Ourselves, for Our own good.  PROHIBITION is a crime against humanity, but we have accepted it as an outgrowth of a Democracy based on providing Representation to inflict the will of the PEOPLE against the HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL.  Slaves did not need the EMANCIPATION PROCLOMATION to be FREE.  They were born FREE.  LEGISLATION robbed them of that FREEDOM with a CONSTITUTION that supports bigotry over moral turpitude.  ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, NOT SLAVES OR FEMALES.  WE THE PEOPLE cannot be given power over the FREE WILL of FREE individuals to engage in consensual acts of FREEDOM of choice…no matter how many SHEEPLE gather with their pitchforks, torches and LEGISLATION to rule me with Jackbootz and Kangaroo Courts.”

“The LAW cannot change because I AM THE LAW.  LEGISLATION supports an artificial system of LEGAL and ILLEGAL that does not exist in nature.”

“In 2003, in LAWRENCE V. TEXAS, the SUPREME COURT ruled that sodomy is now legal.  So, by this standard, if I sodomize you, how can you declare it is illegal?  In this primal act we understand the law.  I, the individual, the most powerful force on earth, declare that sodomy is UNLAWFUL when done to me!  But the individuals or gaggle of FLOCKTARDZ have the authority to tell others they cannot engage in an act that they find immoral, deviant, disgusting, or reprehensible…”

If Our right to say YES is stolen by LEGISLATION then Our right to say NO is up for vote and that is RAPE!  We are brainwashed on the most fundamental level to deny Our individuality in order to be more easily led astray.  Look at the words we use to refer to an individual – OURSELVES, THEMSELVES, YOU is also plural or singular.  Individuals are denounced as RECALCITRANT, RABBLEROUSER, DISSIDENT, we have problems with authority – INFIDEL, BLASPHEMER, ENEMY OF THE STATE. CONFORM OR DIE! …

“This is why the Holy/Legal Union of Marriage is imposed, so that you must answer to someone other than yourself.  If not GOD or CROWN OF GOVERNMENT, then your Spouse.  Pay a fee to the  establishment to prove your Love – The Contract of Marriage.  OR the ENTITY will label your children Bastards!  Control through stigma.  It costs little to get married and a lot to get a divorce.”

“If we go FREE, the ENTITY goes broke!”

“Two people commit the same Act, (ACTOS REUS), for the same purpose, (MENS REA), yet by the Democratic process of LEGISLATION by REPRESENTATION, one can be declared a Criminal and the other a Customer.”

“Two people toke up.  Where are you at in America?  Are you following the rules?  Two people use a drug.  Just say no to drugs. Which drugs?  If you are using  drug, did you pay your fee to the AMA and go to the monopoly of Big Pharma?  Are you a Customer or a Criminal for using that drug?  Are you using one of the drugs prescribed by the MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX or one of the drugs PROHIBITED BY PRESCRIPTION by the LEGAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.  If you’re not paying a fee to the entity there will be fines.  So be good SHEEPLE, and do what you are told to do, the way you are told to do it and you will be a FREE CITIZEN in a FREE COUNTRY, even though there is RESTRAINT OF TRADE in the FREE MARKET ENTERPRISE. You are FREE to buy what the ENTITY allows you to buy!”

“We are trained to believe that LEGISLATION sets us FREE, when in reality LEGISLATION is what declares us SLAVES.  The motto on our $ is E PLURIBUS UNUM – FROM MANY ONE.”

The reality is that we are conscripted by LEGISLATION to become MANY rather than ONE.

“As Senator Huey P. Long said:  When Fascism comes to America, it will not be called Fascism…It will be called Anti-Fascism

“Denouncing Our blessed CONSTITUTION makes you an ANARCHIST, a SUBVERSIVE.  As good Americans we must follow the CONSTITUTION…well, which version?”

“The one that supported SLAVERY, upheld CHATTEL?”

“States Rights enforced atrocities that were confirmed by Congressional Act.  The Fugitive Slave Act, The Mann Act, The Volstead Act, The Racial Integrity Act, Comstock Law, are all violations of Our Human Rights and were enforced in Supreme Court decisions.  In Dred Scott V. Sanford, SCOTUS ruled that Negroes were like Hogs.”

“You notice that in School, they never teach us about the people who stood up as individuals against the system; only of those who stood up in SUPPORT of the System.  We do not learn the names of those who stood up as Individuals to declare that they are FREE BY LAW, NOT SLAVE TO LEGISLATION.  Linda Brown V. Board of Education; Aurelia Browder who defeated segregated buses.  Estelle T. Griswold who ended Comstock Law against Birth Control Pills, and Professor Timothy Leary who defeated the Marihuana Tax Stamp Act of 1937, which became the Controlled Substances Act of 1970.  And here we are!”

“And who claims to be the great voice of the LEGAL movement? NORML.  NORML wants to REFORM Marijuana Laws, not END PROHIBITION.  50 years of what?  They’ve got SHEEPLE cheering for these legislated victories in State after State, and in every State there are PLANT PRISONERS, and in every State someone is getting busted for POT.  In NO State can Police or Government Officials use it.  In NO State is it available as part of your treatment on your Health Care Options, and in NO State is a Medical Marijuana Card respected by Employers who are Drug Testing You for Employment!”

“Professional Athletes cannot use it without getting busted, and POTHEADZ can get their Kids taken away!  There is a Bill for RIGHT TO TRY if you are trying to stay alive and use new fangled pharmaceutical Drugs, but POT is not one of them!  Yeah, we got LEGAL WEED!  After decades of fighting the ENTITY to prove that POT is NOT a Drug, SHEEPLE now refer to it as a Drug to beg to get some!  DIVIDE and CONQUER!  MEDHEADZ V. POTHEADZ.”

“The Legal Industrial Complex realizes it can no longer have the monopoly on Cannabis, so they want to split the difference by handing us over to the Medical Industrial Complex.”

“Thus, here I remain, facing charges due to a BILL in a CRIMINAL COURT, demanding to face a VICTIM in the name of the LAW, and I am told that the STATE is the VICTIM, according to LEGISLATION that enfranchises Criminal Codes.  I demand that the CRIMINAL COURT define my GUILTY ACT only to be told that I have VIOLATED a CONGRESSIONAL ACT, TO WIT:  The CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT, amended from the CONTROLLED DRUG SUBSTANCES ACT, not only to silence the point that POT is not a Drug, but to keep their greatest enemy under wraps:  HEMP!”

“LEGISLATION MAKES SLAVES OF US ALL!  WHEN YOU STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS BY STANDING AGAINST THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS WE ALL FALL DOWN!”

“So, I am on an Island, alone.  I reject all forms of Process to give me a portion of what is mine.  I will not negotiate with the Carjacker to allow me to use my Car on the weekends.  It’s MY Car!

“I go to Court and I am told by NORML, The “Nixon Organization of Reprehensible (Marijuana) Lawyers”, to join them on working to pass LEGISLATION.  That is Politically motivated Judicial Bias, which is a Crime, to go along with Restraint of Trade.  Perversion of Justice.  There is No Victim.”

“When the Individual faces an Individual in a Court of Law, there is Justice.  When the Individual answers to the ENTITY in a CRIMINAL COURT there is oppression.”

“Through these various PROHIBITIONS, Our Country is home to 25% of the Prison population, even though we represent 5% of the World.  But it is far more insidious than that. These numbers do not include all those on Parole or Probation, and it does not count those sentenced to DRUG REHAB.  America accounts for 1/2 of the arrests in the World.  Two of three do not face a Victim – They answer to charges based on a BILL, that has been Legislated into existence.”  So if the ENTITY did not have PROHIBITION, 2 of 3 of them would be gone.  Judges, Lawyers, Bailiffs, Clerks, Transcribers, Jailers, Parole and Probation Officers, Bail Bondsmen and others.  If Cops weren’t on FB as “Bob Smith” hunting POTHEADZ or on Craigslist pretending to be seeking Prostitutes, THEY WOULD BE OUT HUNTING THUGZ NOT DRUGS!  Then there would be a Cop on every corner Protecting and Serving the People, and Criminals would be less likely to rear their ugly heads on Our Streets!  Where would the ENTITY be then?”

“It doesn’t matter what you BELIEVE; it only matters how you BEHAVE.”~THE KINGPIN THORNE PETERS!

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.

Image may contain: 1 person

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.

Prospective Neglect: The Case of Noah McAdams

A case of medical kidnapping…reblogged from https://herbal-training.com/2019/07/07/noah-mcadams/?fbclid=IwAR01amxLaj3l3dyTYEY0WodgFtag3MYhouSDyn0f2ushIxgUvve6tadMMZ4

Two hashtags that haunt my dreams, that I see everywhere, that I hope someday very soon, I never have to see, again.

I am the mother of Noah McAdams, and the stories you have seen on the news, only give you the tiny snippet of our lives that they want to share with you, to get ratings, so here I am, in full raw openness, to tell you from the beginning to where we stand (I will keep updated as best I can).

Free KY Amish Farmer Samuel Girod

(Please read and follow the link to sign petition for a man who has been unjustly jailed for charges which originated with a labeling infraction that led up to him being incarcerated.  It is unbelievable that our Country has gone so far as to incriminate this man!  Just read the story by Sally Oh.  Smkrider)

Help us get a presidential pardon for KY Amish Farmer Samuel Girod!

Sally Oh started this petition to President Donald J. Trump and 2 others

The FDA successfully harassed, indicted and convicted 57year old KY Amish farmer Samuel Girod for charges stemming from an innocent labeling infraction!

Sam is now serving 6 years in federal prison. Sam has lived his entire life in the Amish tradition: no electricity. That means no lights, no running water, no electronic sounds, no cell phones, no internet, no planes, no driving cars. He’s a farmer and lived on a farm all his life.

He’s now in prison about 7 hours away from his family — his wife Elizabeth, their 12 children and 25 grandchildren. He is now surrounded by steel with armed guards, bells and whistles, loudspeakers, warnings, cement and little access to the sun.

UPDATE 4/16/19: Sam has been moved several times and is now in Big Sandy which is 120 miles from home. There are no fences and fewer than 100 people there. It is not home but it is not hideous either. His family visits every two weeks and he even gets to see his grands!!!

Sam has never harmed anyone. There are no victims of the 3 herbals salves he made and sold for over 20 years. He made the mistake of mislabeling one of the salves.

The story of his persecution is practically unbelievable.

Except that I live a few minutes from Sam and met him in 2015. By now, I have met scores of people who’ve known him for many years, if not their entire lives. All of us witnessed the entire goings on firsthand. You could not make this up!

Read the entire story at  KY Free Press

— follow the links in the left sidebar for “Condensed” story.
You’ll also find links to the 3 days of the trial and Sam’s sentencing as well as all of the court documents.

At this point, Sam’s only hope for release is a presidential pardon. Please sign this petition, then share it with your friends and family.

Besides signing the petition, please feel free to send letters, emails, and make calls to seven (7) Kentucky legislators and President Trump. Details, addresses, sample missives at KY Free Press — follow the links in the left sidebar

(It doesn’t take long — I contacted everyone via tweet, FB post and email in less than 20 minutes!)

At the very least, our elected representatives must know that PLENTY of people — at least 30K of you with more signing everyday — care about an Amish KY farmer being railroaded into prison by an out-of-control federal agency!

Freedom Is NOT Free And Thorne Peters Is Paying For Our Freedom To Use Cannabis, By Being Incarcerated Unjustly, In A Shelby County Tennessee Penal Farm…

No photo description available.

Above:  TKP Thorne Peters and Linda Harrah, 2012.

The story starts here:  CHRONOLOGY OF CORRUPTION!

puffin tuff-6

For over a year now TKP Thorne Peters has been incarcerated in Shelby County Tennessee.  He was last arrested on what was to be his sentencing date for April 3rd, 2018, but ended up being a “failure to appear” charge, and later on a cannabis charge after he decided to smoke Cannabis in front of the Courthouse on that day instead of showing up for Court.

The history of the conspiracy is explained on the Thorne Peters Website along with a lot of other information.  Also, a very in-depth article about the pending cases is written by The Memphis Truth Commission.

Previous articles from USMjPartyKY are here.

Actus Reus Non Facit Reum Nisi Mens Sit Rea

For the act to be guilty, the mind must be guilty, for the mind to be guilty, the act must be criminal.

thorne

Above:  Video by Lady L (Linda Harrah) on Facebook.  Includes latest updates as of 5/13/19.

The latest information in this saga is that at least six Officials have been recused from Thorne Peter’s trial for varying reasons.  They are:  Carolyn Wade Blackett, Judge Paula Skahan, J. Robert Carter Jr.,  J. Lammey Jr., John Wheeler Campbell, and Asst. DA Mike         Mc Cusker.

On Monday, Criminal Court Judge Jim Lammey, in a separate incident, has caused quite a stir over posts he made on Facebook.  A number of organizations are requesting that he be censured.

June 3rd is the date set for there to be another Judge assigned to the case.

Meanwhile, at the Penal Farm, Thorne continues to fight human rights abuses within the system of the prison.  Commissary items, books and other reading materials, paper and pens, things that we use everyday, these prisoners had been given no access to where Thorne is being held.  As a result of Thorne’s intervention, the policies were changed.  These items are now available.  He continues to assist from within wherever he can.

ATTENTION! WARNING! DANGER! HARK & PAY HEED!!! JUST SAY: “NO MENS REA!” THEN STFU! PpP! LIKE & SHARE! TAG! NO MORE BLAH BLAH BLAH! “SPEAK NOT ON POT!”

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.

#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…

    A Libertarian Solution to Fixing America’s Illegal Immigration Problem

    The Libertarian Vindicator

    Immigration is poking its head once again thanks to President Trump and his push to build a wall on the southern border which has caused the longest government shutdown in American history.

    Illegal Immigration can be a problem, but a wall isn’t the way to go anymore, not in the day and age we live in. We need different alternatives and fix the problems that we have in this country that attracts illegal immigration.

    Former Congressman Ron Paul offers the best solution to this “crisis.”

    Kentucky Will March To The Capital, Once Again…

    gatewood rainbow farm

    Rainbow Farm was located in Vandalia, Michigan & was a cannabis friendly community. They had great concerts & speakers. The government came in later & killed the owners & stole the farm from the legal birth right of the son, Robert, 1 week before 9-11 (September 3rd & 4th,2001). Tom Crosslin & Rollie Rolhm were the owners & each one of them were systematically gunned down & tortured after being out numbered 300 to 1. In order to stop a memorial day concert, that was to start a signature campaign to legalize cannabis in the state of Michigan.

    1/13/2019

    ShereeKrider

    The Country as a whole has come a long way since the incident above in 2001, but it still has a very long way to go.  We have 11 “legalized States” and 33 “medicinal States” to date according to NORML.  More than the majority of Americans believe it should be made “lawful”.  Many sick people including children are suffering needlessly and we have the ability to help rectify the situation.

    We should not still have to be going to the Capital in Frankfort to beg for something that we should have had in Kentucky more than seven years ago.  In fact, it never should have been “unlawful” to possess in the first place.

    Gatewood Galbraith, “The greatest Governor that Kentucky never had”, spoke to this issue many times and had he been elected we would not still be in this same fight today.  He said, “You have got to get political.  Because if you don’t get political then I’m gonna die in the streets!” 

    The number of people who are dying in the streets has exponentially increased in the past 5+ years in earnest.  The crisis was started by the Government and their Pharmaceutical cronies who promoted highly addictive opioid drugs for daily use to patients who were suffering and  they bit the bait.  After everyone was sufficiently addicted to the pharmaceuticals the Government claimed an “opioid crisis” and immediately withdrew these needed medications by way of intimidating the Physicians and forced drug testing to the point that the Medical Establishment could no longer take the chance of losing their Practice’s, and so they immediately withdrew needed medicines from Patients who legitimately needed them, as well as other’s who had become addicted for other reasons – and there are many reasons…  This in turn caused people to literally die in the streets due to a dire need to medicate and the ample supply in the streets of much more potent and deadly drugs than what the Physicians had been prescribing them to begin with.

    Some of us were strong enough and smart enough to turn to Cannabis which saved our lives, even though it is illegal.  A lot of us have lost close friends and family members to this ‘war on drugs’.  Many of us grieve daily because of it.

    There have been Senators, Representatives and Citizen Activists, working hard to see Cannabis regulation and lawfulness is passed in the very State that in WWII the Government pleaded with people to grow Hemp for their War efforts.  The people responded to their requests in a time of need.  However, the Government turns their heads the other way when the Citizens request that they help them establish a safe and lawful way to use Cannabis, medically and otherwise.  Not only would this help the multitudes of patients who direly need this medication, it would also establish a lawful product that can be taxed and used for the greater good of the State we reside in, including new businesses and employment.  As a result, even those who chose not to partake in Cannabis would benefit from the legalization and taxation of the  product – much like alcohol – with much less lawlessness than alcohol promotes…

    It would establish a lawful alternative to Alcohol and Tobacco and other illicit drugs, such as street level opioids which are destroying families and responsible for unending deaths even as we speak.  Yet, to date, our Kentucky Government has refused to act upon this issue. 

    Why has Kentucky Government taken such a path in governing of the people?

    “Petrochemical-Pharmaceutical-Military-Industrial-Transnational-Corporate-Fascist-Elite-Bastards”  LINK

    For a more in-depth read on why and how our Country has fell into the hands of the NWO you can view this LINK.  “The Elkhorn Manifesto” is an archived page of the Kentucky Marijuana Party, written in 1996 by R. William Davis, and collaborated with Gatewood Galbraith. 

    Here we are, once again, in the year of Our Lord, 2019, begging for our leaders to hear our plea’s.  And once again, they will try to ignore us! 

    As far as I am concerned, the lawfulness of Cannabis should first have been rightfully returned to the people through REPEAL of Federal Treaties and Statutes which made it unlawful to begin with.  Possibly as far back as the 1914 Harrison Narcotics Tax Act.  However, the situation has been taken into the hands of the individual States and their “States Rights” because the Federal Government refused to stand up for the rights of our people.  Instead they have enlisted a “New World Order” to do their dirty work which seeks to contain society at large – world wide control of the masses, control of all plants, food, medicines,  WATER, etc., to be placed under strict guidelines to which we must abide by the rules or suffer the consequences.

    We have become damned if we do submit to the law and damned if we do not follow it as well. 

    There is  research already out there and patients are being helped and in some cases literally saved from an early death by using Cannabis.  Many people have been saved from addiction by using Cannabis. 

    We cannot wait another year to change the Cannabis Statutes in Kentucky.  We need it now.  We needed it 20 years ago.

    There are currently two Bills in Kentucky Legislature – one in Senate and one in the House.  Both bills should be passed and this is my reasoning for this:

    SB 80 / Dan Malano Seum / Establishes the “Department of Cannabis Control” which will oversee lawful consumption of Cannabis in Kentucky by adults 21 and over.  This Bill gives limited and controlled freedom back to the people in that it does allow for growing on our own property and consumption as well as sets the stage for business to be lawful throughout Kentucky.  This legislation could be enacted fairly quickly and jumpstart the economy here.  It is imperative that we implement this legislation this year if we seek to make our State livable again.

    HB 136 / Establishes a very strict “Medical Cannabis” bill for bonified Patients.  Because of the nature of illnesses and the fact that many Children could be served by this Bill it is imperative that “medicinal Cannabis” be made available in Kentucky to those who are in need, medically, whether they be adult or child.  Many people who are not familiar with Cannabis and it’s use would serve to be protected as patients by this medical legislation.  The problem is that with the measures necessary to comply with the Bill as it is written it would most certainly be a slow process to set up across the State and reach all patients equally.   However, we should proceed immediately on this Act as well.

    Additionally, a drug-free workplace Bill for the use of legal Hemp CBD products, currently sold on the open market:

    SB 83 / Perry B. Clark “Shauna’s Law”  Relating to a drug free workplace / Seeks to mandate an appeals process for those employer’s who enforce drug-testing upon their employee’s which will address those persons who have been found in violation of the drug-free workplace policy by testing positive on random drug screens for legal Hemp products such as CBD.  It would set aside that violation if proven that a legal product had been used.  This Bill must be passed in order to preserve the integrity of the Hemp market as well as employee’s rights.

    IF our Legislator’s  and Governor do not seek to enact the Bill’s which we as a People have requested  for our health and well-being in general, then the political system of the Commonwealth of Kentucky needs to be immediately and completely changed and replaced.  This would also include other issues of great importance in Kentucky such as the Pension Crisis.

    The corruption in Kentucky runs far and wide and seeks to be ended this year.  The time is now for change…not later.  We cannot wait another year to be lawful!

    New Congressional Marijuana Bill Is Actually Numbered H.R. 420

    Tom Angell Contributor

    In a hat tip to marijuana culture, lawmakers on Capitol Hill have officially reserved the number H.R. 420 for a bill that would dramatically change federal cannabis laws.

    420, of course, is a special number for marijuana enthusiasts, who celebrate the plant extra hard every April 20.

    The new bill filed in the House on Wednesday by Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) is titled the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act. If passed, it would remove cannabis from the federal Controlled Substances Act.

    “While the bill number may be a bit tongue in cheek, the issue is very serious. Our federal marijuana laws are outdated, out of touch and have negatively impacted countless lives,” Blumenauer said in a press release. “Congress cannot continue to be out of touch with a movement that a growing majority of Americans support. It’s time to end this senseless prohibition.”

    This isn’t the first time that 420 has worked its way into official legislative numbering.

    California’s first effort to create statewide medical cannabis regulations was through a bill numbered SB 420 in 2003.

    In 2017, a Rhode Island senator filed a marijuana legalization bill given the designation of S 420.

    And on Capitol Hill, the first time the House voted on measure to block the Department of Justice from interfering with state medical cannabis laws, it was through an amendment considered under 2003’s Roll Call 420.

    The current legislation, which Blumenauer picked up from former Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), who was sworn in on Tuesday as Colorado’s new governor, would also transfer cannabis enforcement authority from Drug Enforcement Administration to a renamed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana, Firearms and Explosives.

    A similarly renamed Alcohol, Tobacco and Marijuana Tax and Trade Bureau within the Department of the Treasury would also have oversight authority, as would the Food and Drug Administration. Federal permits would be issued for cultivating, packaging, selling and importing marijuana.

    Shipping or transporting marijuana into states that have not legalized it would be prohibited.

    Last Congress, Polis’s version of the bill garnered 26 cosponsors.

    Separately, Blumenauer recently released a step-by-step plan to federally legalize marijuana in 2019.

    His new bill is the third piece of standalone cannabis legislation filed in the new Congress, which began last week.

    “Any displays, sale or solicitation of CBD oil is illegal and individuals involved are subject to federal investigation and prosecution.”

    CBD oil, sold in stores throughout Ohio, is illegal and can carry a felony charge

    CBD oil, sold in stores throughout Ohio, is illegal and can carry a felony charge

    By Shannon Houser | October 9, 2018 at 9:49 PM EST – Updated October 10 at 11:26 AM

    CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – CBD oil is available online, in every state and is commonly found on store shelves across Northeast Ohio; however, it’s illegal and can result in a felony charge.

    So, why the big confusion over the chemical compound?

    “I got pulled over in a traffic stop and long story short, they found CBD oil,” said Robert Faulkner.

    It was July of last year when Faulkner was arrested in Richland County.

    “I tried it for my anxiety. It didn’t work for me at that particular time and I just threw it in the back on my truck,” he said.

    Faulkner said he bought it from a store in Columbus. He said the oil was made and manufactured from a hemp store in Cincinnati.

    “I never went to the store and thought I was buying something that would potentially put me in prison,” he said.

    Faulkner was slapped with two counts of aggravated possession of drugs. He’s awaiting a grand jury trial for the felony charges.

    Here in Ohio, you cannot possess CBD oil. The laws aren’t stopping people from buying it and it’s not stopping stores from selling it.

    Faulkner believes the reason is there is so much confusion about the law.

    “I didn’t knowingly obtain everything illegal. I went to a store to try to help me with an issue I have,” said Faulkner.

    THC is the chemical compound responsible for the high in marijuana. The DEA says they’ve learned through science, that CBD will always contain some amount of THC, even trace amounts that won’t get you high.

    But given the presence of THC, the over-the-counter oil is illegal.

    Cleveland 19 found two local stores with shelves full of CBD oil.

    According to the DEA:

    “Any displays, sale or solicitation of CBD oil is illegal and individuals involved are subject to federal investigation and prosecution.”

    We found in some states, like in Texas, police are raiding stores who are selling CBD oil.

    So why isn’t that happening here if it’s illegal?

    The DEA wouldn’t say, but did say stores selling it aren’t immune from federal investigation.

    Faulkner says he hopes officials and lawmakers can help make the laws more clear so this doesn’t happen to someone else.

    “I have an ankle monitor on right now. I have to go check in with probation. I spent four days in jail. This is impacting my life seriously, for something I bought in at the store to just try to help my anxiety.”

    CBD is covered by Ohio’s medical marijuana law–and will be available to those with a medical marijuana card.

    The FDA recently approved a CBD oil medication that is used to help treat epilepsy.

    It can only be prescribed by licensed doctors.

    NJ Weedman sold his weed in front of the Statehouse

    njweedman 9.27.18

    September 27, 2018

    NJ Weedman – “Mission accomplished…all good”!

    Today in front of the New Jersey Statehouse NJ Weedman,                Ed Forchion , followed by Vice News, made his way outside the    window of  Governor Murphy and asked him to “Veto the Bill”.

    In the video above he tells everyone about it!

    The latest version of the bill, like previous drafts, would not allow people to grow marijuana at home.LINK

    nj

    Although I could not find a copy of the Bill as it has NOT been released yet, I did come across a website named NJ Cannabis Insider that stresses the need for financing in excess of $1 to $2 MILLION DOLLARS needed for a startup!  That would  pretty much a guarantee that only well  financed Corporate Entity could apply.

    It also stresses that you must have a clean background – which would automatically eliminate anyone ever charged with any kind of Cannabis possession or trafficking.  Again, guaranteeing that only Corporate Entities with a well documented background should      apply!

    This is why Ed Forchion is asking that the Bill be vetoed as it stands.

    Neither I nor most minorities who were victimized by the current marijuana laws can’t participate or even fill out a application for a job or to get ownership in this proposed industry. The cannabaggers are making obscene requirements and prohibitions to make selling weed legally exclusive to the rich and politically connected.LINK

    This is a good example of the difference between legalizing and      repealing the prohibition of Cannabis altogether.

    Repeal would ensure that everyone has equal rights to a plant which God had put on Earth for everyone’s use.

    Legalization limits that plant severely and makes sure only the wealthy will dominate its very existence leaving everyone else open to prosecution as usual.

    If there are no growing rights then there are no rights, period.

    Malaysian Court Sentences Man to Death for Distributing Free Cannabis Oil

    A man in Malaysia was sentenced to death after giving medical marijuana to patients in need.

    Published 3 weeks ago on September 4, 2018 By Nick Lindsey

    Malaysian Court Sentences Man to Death for Distributing Free Cannabis Oil

    Malaysia remains a potentially dangerous place to engage in anything related to medical marijuana. And that includes distributing it free of charge to patients who could benefit from it. Just last week, a man was sentenced to death for giving medical grade cannabis oils to patients in need.

    Death Sentence For Distributing Medical Marijuana

    On August 30, a judge in Malaysia sentenced Muhammad Lukman Bin Mohamad to death. The sentence came after the judge found Lukman guilty of breaking the country’s notoriously strict anti-cannabis laws.

    According to local news sources in Malaysia, Lukman was arrested when authorities discovered just over three liters of cannabis oil. Additionally, he was found in possession of 279 grams of compressed cannabis.

    All of this occurred in December 2015. Now, nearly three years after being arrested, Lukman received his sentence. Specifically, he was found guilty of breaking Malaysia’s Dangerous Drugs Act of 1952.

    This law states: “No person shall, on his own behalf or on behalf of any other person . . . traffic in a dangerous drug.” Further, the law stipulates: “Any person . . . guilty of an offence against this Act shall be punished on conviction with death.”

    Given that cannabis remains an illegal substance in Malaysia, the judge ruled that this law applied to Lukman’s case. Lukman is now being held in Kajang Prison. At this time, sources indicate that he plans to appeal the decision in the country’s Court of Appeal.

    Guilty for Giving Medical Marijuana to Patients

    Throughout Lukman’s case, his defense argued that his acts did not constitute drug trafficking. In particular, they focused on the fact that he was not distributing recreational drugs. Instead, defense lawyers argued, Lukman was distributing medicine to patients who might not otherwise be able to get it.

    Further, the defense pointed out that Lukman was not making a profit. Lukman was in fact working in cooperation with an organization that educates the public on issues related to medical marijuana.

    Lukman was not profiting from his distribution, either, since patients who could not afford the product were given it for free. In addition to all this, Lukman and his defense team pointed to the growing body of scientific evidence supporting the medical use of cannabis.

    Despite all this, the prosecutors maintained that Lukman still broke the country’s laws prohibiting all forms of marijuana. They also claimed that although marijuana is increasingly accepted throughout the world, there is nothing in Malyasian law that allows for the medical use of cannabis.

    One Of The World’s Worst Anti-Cannabis Countries

    Malaysia has long had some of the world’s most heavy handed anti-cannabis laws. Most obviously, this reputation comes from the fact that a person can still be sentenced to death for breaking certain drug laws.

    But Malaysia isn’t the only country where a person can be sentenced to death for possessing, distributing, or consuming cannabis. In fact, there are still a surprisingly large number of countries throughout the world with these types of laws in the books.

    Along with Malaysia, this list includes countries like China, Egypt, Singapore, Myanmar, Philippines, Nigeria, and several others.
