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?

Earth's credit card has been maxed out!

If Earth's resources were a credit card, we have already maxed out our entire allocation for this year. The think thank Global Footprint Network announced that August 19th was “Earth Overshoot Day,” meaning that all the resources we use after that day exceed what our planet can produce in a single year.

"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
