At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed. O! Had I the ability, and could reach the nation's ear, I would today, pour out a fiery stream of biting ridicule, blasting reproach, withering sarcasm, and stern rebuke. For it is not light that is needed, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, the earthquake. The feeling of the nation must be quickened; the conscience of the nation must be roused; the propriety of the nation must be startled; the hypocrisy of the nation must be exposed; its crimes against God and man must be proclaimed and denounced.
-- Frederick Douglass

Today I viewed someone I have never really watched, by coincidence I turned on the tube and there was Montel Williams discussing his new book Climbing Higher. The book I knew of, and the fact he uses medicinal Ganja for his MS. But this was straight up advocating on prime time mainstream TV and that would be almost historical. I believe he blew the doors off the place with very credible references in the audience and not one member of the audience scoffed or even questioned or commented against it. Not one. Patients testifying and Doctors testifying. Very moving, especially for television. Almost total truth though he did slide into politics a little. I can't blame the medicinal users for feeling more worthy because of their illnesses. I've helped them get it a few decades now and have all the compassion I can for them... but, I'll never change my feelings of the fact that healthy people using shouldn't be in cages either. That religious or re-creational use has absolutely nothing to do with the medicinal benefits, and can in no way shape or form, change the physical properties of Ganja used to treat a wide range of symptoms for a wide range of illnesses. Or that anyone would give up legal Pharmaceuticals that worked, and suffer through their symptoms just to smoke pot that didn't work, quasi legally. Its always been an either or, is or isn't and now finally its all being corroborated on nationwide television. It was informative TV and I always thought that was mostly an oxymoron. I'm waiting for the transcript. Hope this is replayed. Maybe then someday they'll realize Hemp doesn't change its tensile strength or versatility because of users either. The Ganjawar exists because people profit on it, it has very little to do with the dangers of using Ganja because the "dangers" are in the prohibition. If there were no profits in this war, no one would show up to fight it. Peace, Love and Liberty or DEAth

IA, Lakota Sioux meets with Kucinich 13 Jan 2004
http://makeashorterlink.com/?X37241E07

DES MOINES (AP) - Dennis Kucinich presented the spiritual leader of the Lakota tribe with a ceremonial blanket Sunday, saying that as president he would work to heal wounds between the government and American Indians.

Looking Horse said America needs a president who will honor the original intent of the Constitution. By Laura Rauch, AP

Kucinich, one of nine candidates seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, met with Chief Arvol Looking Horse during a diversity celebration at a downtown hotel, blocks from where a Democratic debate was to be held later in the evening.

"I pledge to you a presidency that embraces the spirit of being of America long before it was established as the United States, but an America which connects with the values of Native Americans to the Mother Earth," Kucinich told Looking Horse.

The Ohio congressman said he would work to heal the breach that exists between the government and American Indians.

"There is much so healing to do," he said, noting their long suffering at the hands of the U.S. government.

Looking Horse, who gave a blessing in his native language, said America needs a president who will honor the original intent of the Constitution.

"We need a person who can make a difference and bring peace and honor back to Mother Earth," he said.

Looking Horse, of the Eagle Butte, S.D.-based Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, is the 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Pipe of the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota nations.

A diverse crowd of about 100 people, spanning all ages and ethnic groups, crowded into the hotel meeting room to hear Kucinich and Looking Horse.

The crowd was entertained by "Democracy in Creation" a group of singers and dancers from Santa Cruz, Calif., touring to raise political awareness among young voters.

Jenise Hibbeler, 35, a massage therapist from Des Moines, set up a massage table in one corner of the room, giving massages to raise money for Kucinich's campaign.

"There are a lot of people not feeling nurtured in the world and when you do feel nurtured you're less willing to 'GRRRR,'" Hibbeler said, growling. "He wants to nurture us as people. He truly is a loving, caring and passionate man and he really works from the heart."

"To those of us locked away in here, there's nothing more important than being remembered" Leonard Peltier September 1998 Leavenworth Prison

The Buzz on Hemp By Mike Strobel
Source: Toronto Sun January 13, 2004
The big pot bust in Barrie brings back heady memories. Lazy August afternoons. Bees abuzzin.' Crows cawing on a soft breeze. My old man checking the cannabis crop. "Lookit how tall it is," he would say, head back in wonder. It was 10, 12 feet high. The corn no longer hid it. The OPP cruised by regularly, peering in from Talbot Rd. "The cops were really suspicious," my dad chuckles down the line from Maple Manor, in Tillsonburg.

Getting Rid of Unwanted Weed By Curtis Rush, Staff Reporter
Source: Toronto Star January 13, 2004
Now that police have broken up the biggest pot growing operation in Canadian history, they face a second problem: how to dispose of 30,000 marijuana plants. "Something this large, there is no normal practice," said Barrie Police Sergeant George Cabral. "That may present some difficulty in itself." The plants will either be burned or buried. But there's so much stock, the police aren't exactly sure how they should proceed with the process. Read More...

Huge Marijuana Factory Was One Strange Joint By Peter Cheney
Source: Globe and Mail January 13, 2004
Barrie, Ont. -- For the workers at Canada's biggest indoor marijuana farm, there was no summer, no winter, and no day or night. Instead, there was the artificial glow of more than a thousand industrial lights, the gurgle of chemicals and mattresses set in windowless concrete rooms. And of course there was the endless task of caring for more than 30,000 high-grade marijuana plants that produced an annual cash crop worth an estimated $100-million.

'Free' to be: N.O. school gets loving look By Renée Peck
http://makeashorterlink.com/?R49212E07
TV Focus editor January 11, 2004

In the late '60s and early '70s, desegregation prompted an explosion of private
schools.

The local anti-establishment movement prompted one.

Founded in 1971 by self-proclaimed dreamers and hippies who saw education as a means of social change, The New Orleans Free School was one of many "free" schools nationwide that sought not to keep the races apart, but to bring them together. Racially balanced and rule-free, these "open classroom" schools were centered on the individual child. No grades. No desks. No textbooks. No classrooms.

Most free schools fell by the wayside within a year or two, but the New Orleans version is still operating three decades later. With one great irony: The school that was started as a protest against public education now operates as a New Orleans public school, probably the only public free school in the country.

First-time filmmaker Mika Buser-Ferris chronicles the 30-year history of this one-of-a-kind institution in "The Free School," an engaging documentary that won the 2002 New Orleans Film Festival's Louisiana Filmmaker's Award. Free School alums need not fear a dry, textbook take on their freewheeling alma mater. Buser-Ferris, a former Free School student himself, shows a creative hand at storytelling, with a lucid, chronological storyline, judicious use of archival clips and footage and in-depth interviews with students, teachers and parents. Original music by Matt Johnson plays to advantage as upbeat background.

The New Orleans Free School tale is timely, not only as a historical document, but also in light of the contemporary debate in education. "No child left behind" could well have summed up the Free School philosophy, as idealistic teachers sought to maximize the potential of every child in their care.

The experiment in non-structured education went through many growing pains. Total freedom brought creativity, but also a lack of discipline. The term "chaos" pops up in more than one interview. But it was financial restraints that ultimately pushed the Free School where no similar institution had gone before: into the arms of the New Orleans Public School system. For more than two decades the two have maintained an uneasy truce, as the Camp Street school attempts to maintain its open-learning concept and the system demands structure.

These days the New Orleans Free School still doesn't give grades or mandate a dress code, but you will find textbooks, desks and a structured curriculum there. The racial balance of earlier years has given way to a predominantly African-American population, and the concept of small numbers (29 students in 1971) has yielded to the demands of an urban location, with hundreds of students today.

But the spirit of social reform remains, and the school continues to coax creativity and push mental processes. As one former student says on camera, "I couldn't spell, but I was very politically aware."

"The Free School" looks back, and by doing so raises important questions about what lies ahead.

The energy at the Hammerstein Ballroom last night was incredible.

The winning ad, "Child’s Pay," by Charlie Fisher, 38, of Denver features young children working in difficult service and manufacturing jobs -- washing dishes, hauling trash, repairing tires, cleaning offices, assembly-line processing and grocery checking -- followed by the line: "Guess who’s going to pay off President Bush’s $1 trillion deficit?"

Charlie Fisher is an advertising executive who was a registered Republican until the end of the first Bush administration, in 1992. He is currently on assignment in Denmark and flew in to attend the awards ceremony with his cameraman, P. Dreyer.

"I was thrilled just to participate in this contest," Fisher said. "When we finished editing ‘Child's Pay,’ I felt it was nice -- maybe a little too nice. Perhaps I learned that you don't have to paint a bulls-eye on someone’s forehead to be effective. Most importantly, my Republican father said this when I told him I was making an ad for this contest, not knowing what his reaction would be: ‘I am proud of you for taking part and acting in the world around you.’"

Thanks again to all the entrants who participated and thanks to everyone who's making it possible to put these ads on the air. We're going to take our country back.

Sincerely,
--Adam, Carrie, Eli, James, Joan, Noah, Peter, Wes, and Zack

"There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Philipino's and Entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana usage. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others."
-- Harry Anslinger, Commissioner of Narcotics to Congress, why marijuana should be made illegal, 1937.
(Marijuana Tax Act, signed August 2 1937; effective Oct.1, 1937)

In 2000, there were 1,579,566 drug arrests in the US. Of those, 46.5 percent -- 734,497 arrests -- were for marijuana. There were 646,042 arrests for simple possession of marijuana in 2000. http://www.drugwarfacts.org

*The MAJORITY of the 2 million U.S. inmates are incarcerated due to the drug war! The Drug-War Industrial Complex. The U.S. drug-war inmate MAJORITY is calculated by adding together inmates committing drug crimes, drug-related crimes (such as robbing to get money for drugs that are expensive because of the drug war), drug-related parole violations, etc..

The USA has 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's 8 MILLION prisoners. The USA surpassed Russia in the year 2000, and so the USA again has the world's highest incarceration rate! It is now 5 to 17 times higher than all other Western (long democratic traditions) nations. The US incarceration rate has nearly QUADRUPLED since Reagan's election in 1980. 6.5 million adults, or 1 in 32 adults in the USA, or 3.1% of adults, were under correctional supervision (in jail, in prison, on probation, or on parole) at yearend 2000. Statistics, references, links, and charts: http://drugwar.8m.com/majority.htm and U.S. law enforcement spends $7.5 to $10 billion annually enforcing marijuana laws. According to the FBI, 720,000 Americans were arrested on marijuana charges in 2001. Keith Stroup, (NORML) http://www.norml.org

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.
