Florida: Top Lawyer & #1 Supporter of Medical Marijuana filed a lawsuit to overturn the state’s ban on smoking medical marijuana

John Morgan and his firm are one of the best known “Peoples Law firms” in the state and has become a local hero in his support of making medical marijuana available to Florida Residents.  Most of the money spent in the legalization movement has come from him personally.

Due in large part to Mr. Morgan’s involvement in our last election 71% of Florida’s voters voted “yes” on legalizing medical marijuana and it became added to our state constitution.

However as has been happening all over our country Florida Legislatures have forgotten that they are in Tallahassee to perform the will of the people and are trying every way they can think of to stop this State Constitutional Amendment.  Mr. Morgan is our champion in the fight to stop this movement. . . . Your Editor Dennis Crenshaw

A Letter from John Morgan ESQ. to your editor Dennis Crenshaw Dated 7/6/17

Dennis,

Today, I am filing a lawsuit to overturn the state’s ban on smoking medical marijuana, which everyone knows is in direct contradiction to the constitutional amendment we passed.

The ban is unconstitutional, and as promised, we are going to take it to the courts and win.

Getting anything passed through the legislature, as you know, was an accomplishment. Tallahassee politicians often forget who the they are working for.

know who I am working for: The patients and all of you who have fought with us for years to make sure those patients have access to the medicine they need.

Now, thanks to our collective efforts, most patients will get that access via certain types of marijuana. But it’s not enough and not everything the voters passed.

So we start the new fight today in the courts. And we will continue to fight anywhere and any place where the will of the voters is attempting to be side-railed or ignored.

We are unified in this fight and we will bring our cause to a complete and unasterisked victory soon.

Please help us fund this fight and bring even more forces to bear against those that would stand against patients by donating here.

Believe,

John Morgan

Big Brother: UNCONSTITUTIONALLY LOOKING U UP JUST BY YOUR FACIAL RECOGNITION

While Florida has the largest Facial recognition data base in the world which includes every Florida drivers licences in the state. Of course the naive sheeple will use the stock answer, “I don’t do anything wrong so It doses’t affect me.” Right.  The system makes more mistakes than fingerprints or DNA.

17 other states have these data bases also.  I’m sure all the other states are working on building their bases and will soon catch up to Florida. I’m also sure that in the not-to-distant future ever American will have their faces on a connecting data base somewhere. Who voted on this?

According to reports in the Canadian press, simply admitting to a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agent that you’ve smoked pot or that you plan to smoke pot apparently can get you turned away at the border — and perhaps permanently banned from the good ol’ U.S. of A because marijuana is still illegal under federal laws. . .  Read Complete Report

Back in October, we shared with you the Colorado Department of Agriculture’s draft regulations for the growing of industrial hemp. Now, those regulations are official — with one change. Instead of facing a registration suspension or revocation if testing reveals that a grower’s plants exceed 0.3 percent THC, the final rules say that a grower will not be subject to any penalty as long as the “crop is destroyed or utilized in a manner approved of and verified by” the state agriculture commissioner.

Featured Image: “Walt Disney (1901–66), the American film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, animator, and entrepreneur, was best known for creating such iconic characters as Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse, for whom Disney himself was the original voice. In the 1930s and 1940s, he produced full-length animated films that included Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Pinocchio (1940), and Bambi (1942). In 1955, Disney opened Disneyland, a theme park located in Anaheim, California that featured many attractions based on Disney film characters. This 1965 photograph shows Disney and his brother Roy (1873–1971) with Florida’s Governor W. Haydon Burns (1912–87), announcing plans to create a Disney theme park in the state. Walt Disney World opened in 1971. Located just southwest of Orlando, Florida, the attraction grew to become the largest resort in the world, covering 47 square miles (122 square kilometers) and encompassing four theme parks, two water parks, a wilderness preserve, and numerous hotels.” CREDIT: call number C069089CV (Florida Department of Commerce collection) SOURCE: Wikipedia Commons (Public Domain)

Disney established Disneyworld in Florida in a far reaching conspiracy that was aided by the C.I.A. and congress. These shady dealings with the government have come to light in the book, Finding Florida by T.D. Allman, and is discussed by Tabetha Wallace and Tyrel Ventura of Buzzsaw.

The Income Tax: WWII Disney Propaganda

Uploaded on Jul 28, 2008

Funded and approved by the US Department of Treasury in 1943, this Disney featurette was to encourage every good American to do his “duty” and pay his taxes, which, at this time, were at an all time high. Those who do not wish to pay or don’t pay it gladly are depicted as friends of Hitler and enemies of liberty and democracy.

Contrary to what has been stated on other posts of this film, it was never “banned” by anyone. Not only was it approved by the Treasury Secretary, it received an Academy Award nomination for “Best Documentary Feature.” Even President Roosevelt himself had a hand in approving Donald Duck as the main character.
