I’m all for continuing and unifying the movement, especially by open & honest education and correcting how cannabis users are perceived.
But I’m thoroughly convinced of something now, of what I will be doing and what I would encourage all others to do.
Boycott EMERALD [all about their green] TRIANGLE [for stabbing others in the back] bud wherever possible.
Boycott DISPENSERS [of DEA 'justice,' by proxy] against 19 bud wherever possible.
Boycott CARTELS [and their U.S. government sponsors] bud wherever possible.
GROW YOUR OWN!!!Take control of your own health and happiness by taking the time to learn how to grow … it’s a plant! We do not need these people. Dry up their source of power over us – OUR OWN MONEY!
The information on how to nourish the plant that nourishes you, is widely available. The costs associated with growing are less than purchasing in any market – OVERGROW THE GOVERNMENT and all others who would gladly see us in cages before giving up their ignorance, fear and greed!
EVERYWHERE YOU ARE – SPREAD THE SEEDS OF CANNABIS HEMP AND THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT THEY HOLD FOR US!
I’ve posted this in other forums, and wanted to share my response to anyone trying to justify non-support of Prop 19 (which applies equally well to all groups that joined with much of the Medical Pot industry and of course the Drug Warriors):
It was never ONLY about the ‘few thousands’ of Grower-voters up there who not only cast a ballot … but played an integral part with all guilty parties, even encouraging others to do so as well.
Dispensary owners, employees, marketing agents, etc., who continue to maintain shamefully (prohibition-)inflated prices.
Doctors – some rubber-stamping hangnails for $150.
And then there’s the Patients … some hurting, and some not so much. Scared into voting NO against THEIR own best interests.
The Medical Pot INDUSTRY is already corrupted, as it co-exists with the Black Market (and overlaps at times I’m sure). No need for Big Corp. to step in and make medicating/relaxing a risky, and expensive proposition.
This effort to end COMPLETE PROHIBITION needs every victory it can get, starting last century … and a coalition of supposed CANNABIS-supporters, not to mention PEOPLE-supporters(patients?, responsible adults?) helped sink one of OUR best chances to put a HUGE crack in the wall, for an ENTIRE WORLD waiting for so many FREEDOMS!
Anyone who did not vote or vote YES on 19 did it for the reasons I mentioned above – fear, ignorance, greed. Or some combination thereof.
The WAR goes on, thanks to vested interests who support the current prohibition of Cannabis – this inestimable natural gift to ALL OF US – vested interests who hate others and love MONEY(themselves).
You’ve switched sides. You’ve joined the oppressors.
And if you’re a farmer who just got caught up in all of this you’re just going to be one more casualty, and by no means the most serious (think: the incarcerated & their families, the targeted minorities and poor, the sick and tired and stressed and depressed …).
Don’t talk to me about crop prices – we all struggle to survive, some more than others. The freedom to use the Cannabis hemp plant is it’s own issue … not to be confused with U.S. economic policies on farming.
EXCEPT that opening restrictions on Cannabis for non-medicinal uses would have allowed something wonderful to happen – a start to the experiment of allowing this one plant to revolutionize FOOD, FIBER, FUEL and SHELTER industries (in addition to the medical) – while leading to otherwise unachievable ENVIRONMENTAL gains. All of which means one thing: a better ECONOMY for MORE people than you may even care about.
Thanks for aiding the continuation of modern slavery.
