I'd like to believe that logic and intelligent thinking will prevail in the "war on drugs" but greed and self interest seem to prevail each time an opportunity for change comes along. Private prisons who profit from the war on drugs will do everything in their power to keep things the way they are. Many police departments fear losing parts of their funding and even the DEA profits by receiving just over one U.S. dollar for each marijuana plant they destroy (even though nearly all of those plants are the male hemp plant and not the female marijuana plant). Worst of all is the fact that so many people blindly accept the propaganda against marijuana from these organizations rather than seeking out facts on their own and coming to their own conclusion. Online polls always show a majority support for legalizing marijuana but those apparently aren't the same people who vote on election day.

The war of good and evil should not be so shocking, cannabis enhances 'spiritual awareness' Light and truth,....while alcohol, deadens it...The truth is, that cannabis replaces OIL, shocking!!! and it cures cancer...so, which side are you on?

What happens in a musician's brain when they play a song?

Let's get geeky on music. Ever wonder what's happening in a musician's brain when they're actually playing a song?

What about when a musician starts improvising - starts playing music directly "off the cuff"?

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
