That title probably should say, “Why hemp could have saved the world all along“, because the plant should never have been banned in the first place, and its prohibition has led to untold suffering around the globe. If we—the global human population—had been able to grow the miracle plant hemp (Cannabis genus) locally and to use it for local industries and businesses, including and especially for fuel, we would never have needed to be addicted to oil, for one, an addiction that is at the root of much misery. We would never have allowed ourselves to be lorded over by international oil-mongers whose crimes against humanity have become legion, including wholesale invasion of other lands and slaughter of countless people.

None of this oil-related horror—along with the deplorable degradation of the environment globally—would have occurred if hemp had not been prohibited but had been used wisely and intelligently as a major foundation of human society. Indeed, hemp-based economies could still save the human world, while hemp planting could go a massively long way in rescuing the natural world as well. Leggi tutto »

In a dramatic reversal from just two months ago, California’s Proposition 19 marijuana legalization initiative has opened up a seven point lead in the latest Field poll. In July, the Field poll had Prop 19 trailing 44% to 48%; the latest poll, released Sunday, has it leading 49% to 42% with Election Day just six weeks away.

This latest Field poll is in line with other recent polls, most of which show Prop 19 leading, though still short of the 50% plus one needed to guarantee victory on November 2.

The poll was taken by telephone between September 14 and 21 and conducted in English and Spanish.

Support for Prop 19 was strongest among Democrats (60%), San Francisco Bay Area residents (59%), the 18-to-39 age group (59%), Los Angeles County residents (58%), Coastal county residents (54%), and men (54%). Support for Prop 19 was weakest among Republicans (27%), Central Valley residents (30%), voters over 65 (36%), and residents of Inland counties (37%).

Prop 19 continues to trail among women voters (44%) and to trail slightly among Hispanic (46%) and African-American (47%) voters. It has the support of 50% of white voters. Leggi tutto »

Federal drug agents won’t pursue pot-smoking patients or their sanctioned suppliers in states that allow medical marijuana, under new legal guidelines to be issued Monday by the Obama administration.
Two Justice Department officials described the new policy to The Associated Press, saying prosecutors will be told it is not a good use of their time to arrest people who use or provide medical marijuana in strict compliance with state law.

The guidelines to be issued by the department do, however, make it clear that agents will go after people whose marijuana distribution goes beyond what is permitted under state law or use medical marijuana as a cover for other crimes, the officials said. Leggi tutto »

Vi parlerò della droga! La droga! I drograti! Se usi la droga sei un drogato!
Due dati: secondo il ministero della Giustizia, fino alla fine del 2008 in galera c’erano 58.127 detenuti. Adesso ce ne sono 63.771. Sono aumentati di circa 5500 unità, l’unica cosa che aumenta in Italia sono i detenuti.
L’indulto ceppalonico ne aveva liberati ventimila, che sono rientrati quasi tutti. Ma l’indulto, lo sapete meglio di me, è servito non per togliere dalle carceri dei delinquenti ma per tenere quelli veri fuori.
Il discorso è malposto, molto malposto: qui parlano di costruire nuove carceri, ma se Zanna Bianca Maroni dice che la criminalità sta diminuendo che senso ha fare delle carceri nuove, se ci saranno meno criminali fra un po’? Il senso qual è? Vogliono fare anche quelle private, le carceri private! Tronchetti si fa il suo carcere, Ligresti si fa il suo carcere, Colaninno si fa il suo carcere, invece di affidare questa gente ai servizi sociali. La piccola criminalità, anche quella finanziaria, va punita coi servizi sociali. A me non interessa che lo psiconano vada in galera, cosa mi interessa? Lo psiconano deve essere affidato ai servizi sociali, deve spazzare le strade e deve vivere in un bilocale. Quando passi in macchina che vedi Berlusconi che pulisce… che meraviglia, questa è la vera democrazia! Leggi tutto »

Roberta Radici è morta mentre era in attesa di un trapianto di fegato. Il suo nome non dirà nulla ai più, poiche lal storia di Roberta e della sua famiglia è stata pressochè ignorata da giornali e televisioni. Roberta radici è la moglie del falegname Aldo Bianzino, arrestato perchè in possesso di qualche pianta di marijuana e poi ucciso in carcere. Roberta se ne è andata senza sapere la verità, lasciando completamente solo il loro figlio Rudra, di sedici anni. Ed è a lui che ora lo Stato, se ancora ne abbiamo uno, deve dare delle spiegazioni.
