We've waited a long time to
get something on you. You honest men are such a problem and such
a headache. But we knew you'd slip sooner or later - and this
is just what we wanted."
"You seem to be pleased
"Don't I have good reason
"But, after all, I
did break one of your laws."
"Well, what do you think
Dr. Ferris did not notice
the sudden look on Rearden's face, the look of a man hit by the
first vision of that which he had sought to see. Dr. Ferris was
past the stage of seeing; he was intent upon delivering the last
blows to an animal caught in a trap.
"Did you really think
that we want those laws to be observed?" said Dr. Ferris.
"We want them broken. You'd better get it straight that
it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against - then you'll
know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We're after
power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the
real trick, and you'd better get wise to it. There's no way to
rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power
to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals,
one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that
it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.
Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that
for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be
observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted - and you create
a nation of law-breakers - and then you cash in on guilt. Now,
that's the system, Mr. Rearden, that's the game, and once you
understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with." Excerpted

Pot Bust Worth $30-million, Police Say By Oliver Moore
Source: Globe and Mail January 12, 2004
The mammoth scale of two Toronto-area marijuana grow-operations
busted on the weekend shows that commercial marijuana factories
have reached epidemic proportions in Ontario, police said
Monday. A joint operation by officers of the Ontario Provincial
Police and the Barrie Police Service at a former Molson brewery,
a stone's-throw from a busy highway, turned up thousands of plants.
A raid on another building nearby netted thousands more plants.
The total street value of the drugs is estimated at $30-million.

All according to script, so far

"Script?", I hear someone say. "What do you mean,
The following is a link to an in-depth local broadcast stream:
Take special note of the newsreader
interviewing a local police chief.
The newsreader asks the chief
directly, "Wouldn't decriminalization solve the problem?" and
the chief does not answer directly, but instead goes off on a
wild tangent about how they have to end organized crime operations.
Of course, it's no answer...because
they don't have any. The same old song and dance... and practically
scripted from the DEA's playbook. No deviation. Never answer
directly. Steer the conversation away from legalization back
to the influences of organized crime... which, of course, wouldn't
receive their funds if the weed were legal.
But then again, neither would

Hemp and Marijuana: Myths & Realities by David P. West, Ph.D.
for the North American Industrial Hemp Council (Excerpted) http://naihc.org/hemp_information/content/hemp.mj.html
Hemp and Marijuana Myths &
A Botanical and Biochemical
Hemp. Has there ever been
a plant so fraught with confusion and controversy? The word itself
carries a confusing history. "Hemp" was for medieval
Europeans a generic term used to describe any fiber. With European
expansion, fiber plants encountered during exploration were commonly
called "hemp." Thus we have a bewildering variety of
plants that carry the name hemp: Manila hemp (abacá, Musa
textilis), sisal hemp (Agave sisalana), Mauritius hemp (Furcraea
gigantea), New Zealand hemp (Phormium tenax), Sunn hemp (Crotalaria
juncea), Indian hemp (jute, Corchorus capsularis or C. clitorus),
Indian hemp (Apocynum cannabinum), bow-string hemp (Sansevieria
This botanical confusion was
compounded by the introduction of a new word to describe hemp-marihuana
(now commonly written "marijuana"). The word was first
coined in the 1890s, but was adopted by the Bureau of Narcotics
in the 1930s to describe all forms of Cannabis and to this day
U.S. drug enforcement agencies continue to call the plant marijuana
without regard to botanical distinctions. Indeed, a recent conference
held in Jefferson City, Missouri and sponsored by Drug Watch
International and the Drug Enforcement Administration was entitled,
"Marijuana: Myths, Concerns, Facts"-yet much of the
discussion concerned industrial hemp and the legal products made
The conflation of the word
"marijuana" and the word "hemp" has placed
a heavy burden on public policymakers. Many believe that by legalizing
hemp they are legalizing marijuana. Yet in more than two dozen
other countries, governments have accepted the distinction between
the two types of Cannabis and, while continuing to penalize the
growing of marijuana, have legalized the growing of industrial
hemp. The U.S. government remains unconvinced.
To understand the difference
between hemp and marijuana, let's begin with two botanical analogies:
field corn and sweet corn; breadseed poppies and opium poppies.
Reality: Feral hemp, or ditchweed,
is a remnant of the hemp once grown by U.S. farmers. A study
of feral hemp in Kansas showed that it contains extremely low
levels of THC, from 0.5 percent to as low as 0.05 percent and
less . It has no drug value, but it does offer an important
environmental benefit as a desirable nesting habitat for birds.
Yet 99 percent of the "marijuana" being eradicated
by the federal government-at great public expense-consists of
this harmless ditchweed.
Blatent Bigotry (Excerpted from The Emperor Wears NO Clothes)
Starting with the 1898 Spanish American War, the Hearst newspaper
had denounced Spaniards, Mexican-Americans, and Latinos.
After the seizure of 800,000
acres of Hearsts prime Mexican timberland by the marihuana
smoking army of Pancho Villa,* these slurs intensified.
* The song La Cucaracha
tells the story of one of Villas men looking for his stash
of marijuana por fumar! (to smoke!)
Non-stop for the next for
three decades, Hearst painted the picture of the lazy, pot-smoking
Mexicanstill one of our most insidious prejudices. Simultaneously,
he waged a similar racist smear campaign against the Chinese,
referring to them as the Yellow Peril.
Hearst, through pervasive
and repetitive use, brought the word marijuana into
From 1910 to 1920, Hearsts
newspapers would claim that the majority of incidents in which
blacks were said to have raped white women could be traced directly
to cocaine. This continued for 10 years until Hearst decided
it was not cocaine-crazed Negroes raping white womenit
was now marijuana-crazed Negroes raping white women.
Hearsts and other sensationalistic
tabloids ran hysterical headlines atop stories portraying Negroes
and Mexicans as frenzied beasts who, under the influence of marijuana,
would play anti-white voodoo-satanic music (jazz)
and heap disrespect and viciousness onto the predominantly
white readership. Other such Jim Crow (apartheid) offenses resulting
from this drug-induced crime wave included: stepping
on white mens shadows, looking white people directly in
the eye for three seconds or more, looking at a white woman twice,
laughing at a white person, etc.
For such crimes,
hundreds of thousands of Mexicans and blacks spent, in aggregate,
millions of years in jails, in prisons, and on chain gangs, under
brutal segregation laws that remained in effect throughout the
U.S. until the 1950s and 60s. Hearst, through pervasive
and repetitive use, pounded the obscure Mexican slang word marijuana
into the English-speaking American consciousness. Meanwhile,
the word hemp was discarded and cannabis,
the scientific term, was ignored or buried.
The actual Spanish word for
hemp is cáñamo. But using a Mexican
Sonoran colloquialism marijuana, often Americanized
as marihuana guaranteed that no one would
realize that the proper terms for one of the worlds chief
natural medicine, cannabis, and for the premier industrial
resource, hemp, had been outflanked, outlawed, and
pushed out of the language.

TV Channel 10 of Greece accused the Greek Government of jamming
its broadcast during the speech of the opposition leader Costas
Karamanlis! State employees were caught redhanded with jamming
equipment near the antenna of channel 10 at the exact time of
the blackout of its signal! The employees refused to stop the
jamming until they get orders from their higher ups in ERT, the
state organization that supervises the brodcasting media! This
is the Watergate of Greece that might ruin the reputation of
George Papandreou, the new leader of the governing socialist
party PASOK. Messages of sympathy are pouring in to channel 10
from all over the world. People see how power corrupts officials
and statists. Today members of the opposition party have promised
to bring the issue for discussion at the Greek Parliament.

There isn't much doubt in
my mind - anyone who compares the history of Hitler's rise to
power and the progression of recent events in the US cannot avoid
the parallels. It's incontrovertible. Is Bush another Hitler?
I'm afraid now, that what may still come to pass is a reign far
more savage and barbaric than that of the Nazis.

A strange thing happened on the way to the war.
Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, a former Pentagon insider, concludes
her observations on the run-up to the Iraq war in this last of
a three-part series.
As the winter of 2002 approached, I was increasingly amazed at
the success of the propaganda campaign being waged by President
Bush, Vice President Cheney, and neoconservative mouthpieces
at the Washington Times and Wall Street Journal. I speculated
about the necessity but unlikelihood of a Phil-Dick-style minority
report on the grandiose Feith-Wolfowitz-Rumsfeld-Cheney vision
of some future Middle East where peace, love, and democracy are
brought about by pre-emptive war and military occupation. Continued...
