God said, "behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed which is upon the face of all earth... to you it will be for meat.

And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good.

Thomas Jefferson


I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending to too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

Thomas Jefferson  1791


If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of sevitude better than the animating cost of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you and may posterity forget that you were ever our countrymen.

Samuel Adams


The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the Prohibition Law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected to this.

Albert Einstein  1921

The illegality of cannibus is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship, so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.

Carl Sagan


Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction.

Bob Marley


A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very priciple upon which our nation was founded.

Why use up the forests that were centuries in the making and the mines that required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the growth of hemp fields.

When Big Pharma can get their hands into the manufacturing and distribution of POT/ MJ / Cannabis   then it will be legal throughout the country.    They got their lobbyists.   But, until then  .... it is up to the states individually to do the right thing.

And Big Pharma ... will add chemical derivatives to it.   They don't believe in au natural ... not one bit.  


Big Pharma, the drug stores are the real drug pushers.   Now, some drugs are good and people need it; but they are overdosing people, and they are prescribing more and more drugs now than ever before. 


Your kidneys and liver excrete those drugs which sometimes linger in the body system longer that we would like.     If anyone takes anything, flush with water, water is good.  It bathes the cells anyway and we can't survive without it.

I think everyone knows the TRUTHS .... little by little these jerks start giving the signals when it benefits them ... not you.   They need to make money.


Look at MYRIAD corp.  they are buying out the patents on genes that cause illness and death.  They own those patented genes, have you ever heard anything like that before.  They sell cancer testing breast gene for $1600 here in USA; but in Europe it is less than $500.   What is wrong with this picture.


Oh Yeah, Profiteer on death and sickness, this is free enterprise (which I do agree upon) but come on, where are the ETHICS. 


Even Harvard Business School is addressing the factor why there are no Ethics anymore .... yes why are there no more ethics anymore?????

Those with business ethics were run out of the now unfree market place by the non-ethical.

Rhonda, that is one of the most sad - and frightening - stories I've heard in a very long time
