Who's Really Fighting Legal Weed
By Ben Cohen Dec. 8, 2014

The fight against legal marijuana is about big money, not public health.
This year, the anti-amendment group, Drug Free Florida, spent millions on ads to get Floridians to believe medical marijuana was harmful even if it has repeatedly been proven to have many health benefits. It is ironic that the group ran ads implying children would be unsafe if Florida’s initiative passed when the group’s founder set up a drug rehab program shuttered after several allegations of false imprisonment, abuse and torture of children.

"We have spent over a trillion dollars trying to eradicate the world's most beneficial plant off the face of the earth. Imagine what a better world this would be if that money had been spent on treatment, education and studying the medical benefits of marijuana."
-- Steve Hager - High Times Editor (1988 - 2003)

Report: Federal Monopoly Obstructs Medical Marijuana Research

“The results of the study are predictable, so no one should be surprised! Not one of the medical schools surveyed had a department of endocannabinoid science or an ECS director. None of them taught the endocannabinoid science as an organized course. Only 21 of the 157 schools surveyed had the ECS mentioned in any course. 21/157 = 13.3% In the United States of America, only 13% of the medical schools surveyed teach the endocannabinoid science to our future doctors.”
~ Survey of the Endocannabinoid System in Medical Schools

"Not only are we here to protect the public from vicious criminals in the street but also to protect the public from harmful ideas."
~ Robert Ingersoll, then Director of the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, in a column by Jack Anderson in the Washington Post, June 24, 1972, p. 31 (Ingersoll became the first director of the DEA in 1974)

"The Catch 22 for cannabis is that, in effect, the government states, “There are no studies that prove cannabis safety, therefore, it should remain in a class of dangerous drugs that are prohibited from scientific study.” Because cannabis has not been studied, it is a Schedule I drug. Because it is a Schedule I drug, it cannot be studied."

"Narcotics police are an enormous, corrupt international bureaucracy ... and now fund a coterie of researchers who provide them with 'scientific support' ... fanatics who distort the legitimate research of others."

The political repression of the scientific study of cannabis.

"There is a point at which the law becomes immoral and unethical. That point is reached when it becomes a cloak for the cowardice that dares not stand up against blatant violations of justice. A state that supresses all freedom of speech, and which by imposing the most terrible punishments, treats each and every attempt at criticism, however morally justified, and every suggestion for improvement as plotting to high treason, is a state that breaks an unwritten law."

Man Shot 4 Times After Police Raid His Property
By Sean Kelly, Thu, December 11, 2014

Dublin, Georgia resident David Hooks was shot and killed on Sept. 24 during what is described by his family’s attorney as an illegal drug raid by Laurens County deputies. Attorney Mitchell Shook is now asking the FBI to investigate Hooks’ death.

Shook said that Hooks sustained four gunshot wounds from the 17 shots fired into his home by police, two of which were shot when he was lying face down on the ground. “One was to the side of the head, the other was in his back, the back of his left shoulder. Based on the evidence we see, we believe that David Hooks was face down on the ground when he received those last two shots,” full story
