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. . . .

It was a Tuesday morning in San Diego, just over a month ago on November 7th, when SDPD received reports of broken glass at a local business, with a possible burglary having had occurred overnight. Police investigators arriving on the scene quickly determined that the business in question was a medical marijuana dispensary, and the focus of their investigation quickly shifted from aiding possible burglary victims, to persecuting law abiding citizens and shuttering a legitimate business. . .

Has 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

I first met Tom Donahue in the mid-1990’s at a demonstration he organized in front of the Federal Reserve Bank in Jacksonville, Florida. Over the years we have become friends. As a talk radio host long before I knew him, with a syndicated AM radio radio show broadcast over stations across the nation,Tom was one of the first Patriot radio hosts to spread the word about the global plans of the Controllers. Tom’s show will now be a regular feature here on THEI. . . Editor

Innovation is inevitable in any industry, and the field of medical marijuana is no different. With laws already in the books in 18 states and more on the way, investors who might not know their Blue Chips from their Blue Dream are flocking to these regions to stake their claim in what they see as the next big commodity.
White-collar Wall Street-types can certainly see the budding upside to sinking money into dispensaries, growing operations, and other cannabis related retail outlets. But those potential gains are often outweighed by the prospects of inventory control, employee management, product naiveté. And of course, the grey area that exists in all current state-level medical marijuana laws that fly in the face of Federal statute. Cue MedBox. . . . Read Complete Report

Here’s an example where a group of people who were becoming more and more vocal about the coming One World Order, sometimes called a New World Order, REALLY NEEDED the guns they were accused of having. The outcome might have been different had David Karish’s group had the firepower they needed to keep these government storm troopers from burning to death their entire group, every man, woman, and child! The question here is: Who should have had their guns taken away during this “Operation?”
Thank you Janet Reno for shooting and burning the children to death in Waco and tell your bosses, the controllers. . . Give up OUR guns, indeed!. . . EDITOR
The following was extracted from a report prepared by Attorney Paul Wilcher, a report based on actual eyewitness testimony. The members of the very assault team mentioned in the following report had been in contact with Paul Wilcher, via a third party, and given immunity from prosecution they had been prepared to testify. Even though these were hardened professional killers, what they had been ordered to do and actually done at Waco had deeply disturbed them. On May 21st, 1993, Wilcher went to present the following to US Attorney General Janet Reno, on June 23rd Wilcher’s badly decomposed body was found in his apartment. Upon discovery his apartment was sealed and searched and all documents removed. That indeed might have been the end of the matter but Wilcher had given a copy of his 100-page report to Sara McClendon, a senior White House correspondent, shortly before his death.
Wilcher had made one critical mistake in presuming the innocence of Janet Reno and Bill Clinton; it was a mistake that was to cost him his life.
In mid 1999 the report re-emerged, whereupon the four members of the Delta Force assault team involved at Waco all died in training “accidents”. The fact that they are not named in this report had probably allowed them to live so long. However as soon as the report re-appeared the “accidents” occurred, effectively “silencing their testimony forever.” . . . Read Extensive Report
