Chris Williams operated a completely legal medical marijuana dispensary in Montana, where he has complied with all of the local and state regulations, as crazy and ridiculous as they are.

In the past law enforcement representatives have even been through the dispensary; during their encounters they been nothing but friendly and openly approved of what was going on.

Despite the local legalization measures, in March 2011 federal agents raided a whole list of medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the state of Montana, including the one owned by Williams. . . . Read Complete Report

Voters in Colorado and Washington have decided to legalize cannabis for recreational use, however the feds have promised to ignore states rights and lock people up anyway, regardless of local laws.

Bob Tuskin reported on the story for The Intel Hub this morning, saying that

“Both Colorado and Washington have passed referendums legalizing cannabis use. The plant is still made illegal according to federal law.

“Colorado’s Proposition 64 makes it legal for anyone over the age of 21 to possess marijuana and for businesses to sell it.  It will be interesting to see how the feds treat this.

“Barry Soetoro claimed he would not go after legal medical facilities and respect state laws. Fail!”” . . .Read Complete Report

High Times: Earth’s Strongest Strains of marajuana – May 2012 (video)

WARNING! THIS REPORT HAS CLOSE-UP AND GRAPHIC PHOTOS OF DIFFERENT STRAINS OF KILLER WEED! If you ain’t suppose to look at such stuff… just don’t!

Man, back in the first days of its existence  “High Times” magazine did for the look of marijuana what Playboy did for the female figure. And I guess to be truthful I’ll admit I’ve probably looked at multiple  issues of both mags. However, in my defense,  I will say I only  bought  both under-the-counter publications for the featured articles.. After all I am a researcher, and both publications are  excellent sources for research.

Here is a video presentation of photos of pot buds the High Times judges have named as the best of the “Strongest Strains” in the Universe coming out of the summer crop  of 2012.

The background music ain’t bad either. Enjoy, and remember to support High Times magazine as they have been supporting the movement for-ever. . . . EDITOR

After implementing our new Cannabis Cup scoring system in April 2011 – which utilizes lab testing as part of the equation – and after four trial runs in cities around the world including San Francisco, Denver and Amsterdam, we figured we figured we had a pretty good hold on exactly which strains are the most potent on the planet. In the May 2012 issue of HIGH TIMES Nico Escondido provides the list of the world’s strongest sativas, indicas and hybrids – HT certified and lab tested at more than 20% THC.

UPDATE: The Ongoing Battle AGAINST Marajuana & Nixon’s Tapes Reveal the Beginning of Pot Prohibition

Much is said about the failed “War on Drugs” as a program that MUST continue no matter the cost, I’m afraid I have to disagree. The present drug policy is idiocy at work. . . or not at work.

  The first step would be to separate REAL drugs from light drugs. instead of spending so much on Marijuana control, a substance that every study since the 1800s has found not to be the danger that, starting with Nixon, has gotten so much bad press. 

It seems to me that being truthful about the lack of dangers of herb would make the job of controlling crack, coke, heron etc. a lot easier and a lot less costlier if the powers that be would stop using lies and propaganda to lump the hemp plant in with their manufactured dangerous drugs.  Every study of the plant its leaves and stems, has found little or no medical, psychological, or “dependance” associated with the herb. Lets face it, the only reason pot is illegal is because it would put a big dent in the Controllers pocket book and Richard Nixon’s total paranoia about anything he could not understand. . . which, as history has show wasn’t much. With that said, I have decided to add this new category to our growing list of Departments. . . Editor

Legal Recreational Marijuana: Not So Far Out

USA — The drive to legalize marijuana has long been a fringe cause, associated with hard-core libertarians and college-age stoners. But it could go mainstream in a big way in this November’s election, when Washington could become the first state to legalize recreational pot use. If it does — or if voters in any of several other states do — this year could be a turning point in the nation’s treatment of marijuana. . . Read Complete Report

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard Moves To END Federal Prohibition Of Marijuana!

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard Moves To END Federal Prohibition Of Marijuana!

According to a recent post here on THEI we reported that a General Social Survey found that almost 60% of Americans believe that Marijuana should be legalized.  If you are one of those majority of our citizens I urge you to contact your Congressperson and demand that they support Congresswoman Gabbard  and Congressman Garret on this important issue. Tell them you support HR1227.

 It is the liquor and medical industry lobbyist who spend million of dollars to stop this movement that we are fighting.  Even if you are against recreational marijuana you must see the ridiculousness of keeping it a Schedule 1 classification which still means they are saying that it “has no medical benefits” and makes it illegal to even study the plant to find further medical uses, which I an sure there are many.

 We here at THEI support HR1227. We believe the followers of this site are smart enough to agree. . . . Your Editor Dennis Crenshaw

If Jeff Sessions wants to crack down on medical marijuana, he’ll have to battle more than half the country

The Washington Post ~  April 15, 2017

Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to bring back the war on drugs, but on medical marijuana — which he says “has been hyped, maybe too much” — he may be too late.

Any minute now, medical marijuana will be legal in West Virginia. West Virginia! It’s a state that voted for Trump by nearly 42 points in November, and approved medical marijuana via its Republican legislature last week. Democratic Gov. Jim Justice (D) is open to signing it.

And West Virginia is on the tail end of the medical marijuana trend. Half the population of the country, spread out among some 28 states and the District of Columbia, can legally smoke some form marijuana for medical purposes. All but three states legalize some part of the drug found in the cannabis plant for medical cause (mostly the compound cannabidiol, which research suggests doesn’t get people high but can help with anxiety and pain). . . .

YOGA AND CANNABIS A CONTROVERSIAL NEW TREND THAT’S GAINING Popularity- Health

Collective Evolution   SHELLEY M. WHITE 

“Yoga and herb intake have been linked since ancient times. The yoga sutras, written in Sanskrit before the time of Christ, are considered the practice’s foundational text. The sutras list herbs as one of five methods to lift the veil of ignorance, or the barrier between the conscious and the unconscious.” [1]

While many people feel that cannabis and exercise go anything but hand-in-hand, there is an emerging group of individuals coming forward claiming that, for them, the two actually pair quite well. In fact, they go as far as to claim that practicing yoga and receiving the therapeutic benefits they so desperately need would be all but impossible without the relaxation and pain relieving qualities cannabis has to offer. . . .

Uruguay faces UN backlash for legalizing pot

From RT.com Published time: December 12, 2013 13:52
Edited time: December 13, 2013 10:44

Uruguay is facing criticism, as the UN’s drug body, supporting the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), lashed out at the country for allegedly breaking international law, after it legalized the consumption and growing of the plant on Tuesday.

“Uruguay is breaking the international conventions on drug control with the cannabis legislation approved by its congress,” said the INCB, citing several reasons why it thinks Uruguay has made a mistake, among them the purported health risks associated with the plant’s use, the drug body said on its website. . . .

 Entrapment: Cops Trick Autistic Student Into Selling Weed

From High Times FRI DEC 13, 2013

Marajuana Joint SOURCE middletown-ct.patch.com Public DomainHas it really come to this? It seems that with marijuana legalization legislation popping up in states across the country, the coppers are feeling backed into a corner. In one of their most despicable ploys yet, a number of agencies in Southern California have been deploying undercover cops into high schools with the mission of befriending teens, gaining their trust, and entrapping them into selling small amounts of marijuana so that they can arrest them.

This time it occurred at Perris and Menifee high schools where on 12/12/13, undercover cops who had been embedded in the high schools since the beginning of the year arrested over two dozen students on charges surrounding marijuana, hashish, and various other drugs. The remaining student population was thrown into a frenzy of distrust for both their school and their classmates as each one wondered who the cops were. . . . Read Complete Report
