Marijuana Link To Lethal Behavior
By Bill Janes, Florida Office of Drug Control
CN Source: Daytona Beach News-Journal 9-26-06 Florida 
The Sept. 20 editorial on marijuana legalization ("Straight Talk") continues the misinformation campaign of past years. It resurfaces many of the same points that have been scientifically refuted years ago...

Drugwar Lies Linked to Schizophrenia

The greatest enemy of the truth is very often not the lie--delierate, contrived, and dishonest, but the myth persistent, peruasive, and unrealistic. Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
John F. Kennedy (1917 - 1963)

William Norman Janes, Sr., Florida Office of Drug Control

This Commercial from Budweiser has met with some pretty harsh criticism that says they only honor our returning troops to sell beer.  There are some of us though, that recall a time when America didn't remember returning troops at all, except to spit on them.

So, my thanks go to Budweiser, and the critics can go to therapy where they belong..

This stuff is America!

Did Vietnam-era protesters spit? By JOHN E. MILICH
The bulk of verbal intimidation comes from pro-war advocates, mostly Republicans, using variations on that party's long tradition of McCarthyism that has destroyed the reputations of countless American citizens and poisoned political debate in this country for more than half a century.

George H.W. Bush first used this gimmick during the Persian Gulf War. This ploy is based on the unsubstantiated myth that Vietnam-era protesters "spat upon" returning combat veterans. Several letters appeared in the Ithaca media during the past two months chastising present-day protesters not to spit upon the troops, like earlier protesters.

One pro-war Vietnam-vet claimed he was spat upon in uniform, though he didn't specify the circumstances of the incident. While there's little doubt that some Vietnam vets in uniform were spat upon during those turbulent years, no proof exists that antiwar protesters were the spitters.

The editorial writer may be forgiven for a youthful memory, especially in light of today's propaganda that spawns Vietnam-era myths. The statement must be corrected, however, because it retains the impression that Vietnam vets were abused by protesters

"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger."

“If the hideous monster Frankenstein
came face to face with the monster marihuana
he would drop dead of fright.”

This is not an overstatement.

Users of the marihuana weed are committing a large percentage of the atrocious crimes blotting the daily picture of American life.

It is reducing thousands of boys to CRIMINAL INSANITY.

And ONLY TWO STATES have effective laws to protect their people against it.

The marihuana weed,
according to Mr. Anslinger,
is grown, sold and USED in every State in the Union.

He charges, and rightly,
that this is not a responsibility of one State, but OF ALL —
and of the Federal Government.

American women, aroused to this DANGER, will GET ACTION.

The Sensational Beginnings of Yellow Journalism
In 1898, newspapers provided the major source of news in America. At this time, it was common practice for a newspaper to report the editor's interpretation of the news rather than objective journalism. If the information reported was inaccurate or biased, the American public had little means for verification.

With this sort of influence, the newspapers wielded much political power. In order to increase circulation, the publishers of these papers often exploited their position by sponsoring a flamboyant and irresponsible approach to news reporting that became known as "yellow journalism." Though the term was originally coined to describe the journalistic practices of Joseph Pulitzer, William Randolph Hearst proved himself worthy of the title. Today, it is his name that is synonymous with "yellow journalism."

Your Tax Dollars On Drugs By Rob Kampia
Source: AlterNet April 14, 2006 USA
The government's war on marijuana users has done real harm to our nation while chewing up billions of dollars every year. Americans' annual day of reckoning with the IRS on April 15 is a good time to consider where our money is going -- and where it's being wasted. With the federal budget deficit ratcheting past $400 billion per year and the White House and Congress looking at cutting spending for Medicare, education and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is no excuse for squandering billions of dollars on programs that don't work.

Wallstreet's Spontaneous Abortionists
The timing and types of pesticide exposures are critical determinants of reproductive outcomes, according to a recently published study by Canadian researchers. The study examined pesticide exposures based on recall by farm families and reported histories of spontaneous abortions among women living on the farms. The study found strong evidence that a woman’s exposure to pesticides in the three months prior to conception or in the month of conception significantly increased her risk of spontaneous abortion.

Hemp can also be grown without the pesticides that are necessary for cultivation of other textiles and paper products, such as cotton which requires large amounts of pesticides and today is the most polluting of all agricultural industries. Cotton production, in fact, accounts for half the pesticide use in the US, and that product is one of the major products for which hemp could be substituted.

There has never been a recorded death due to marijuana at any time in US history. All illegal drugs combined kill under 20,000 per year, or a small percent of the number killed by alcohol and tobacco. Tobacco kills more people each year than all of the people killed by all of the illegal drugs in the last one hundred years.

Deaths in the United States in a typical year are as follows
* Tobacco kills about 400,000
* Alcohol kills about 80,000
* Workplace accidents kill 60,000
* Automobiles kill 40,000
* Cocaine kills about 2,500
* Heroin kills about 2,000
* Aspirin kills about 2,000
* Marijuana kills 0

Gateway To Nowhere? Pot Doesn't Lead To Heroin July 20, 2006
It's a theory that has long seemed to make intuitive sense, but remained unproven. The federal government's last National Survey on Drug Use and Health, conducted in 2004, counted about 97 million Americans who have tried marijuana, compared to 3 million who have tried heroin (166,000 had used it in the previous month).

That's not much of a rush through the gateway.

Legalise Cannabis To Cut Heroin Addiction By Liam McDougall
Sunday Herald Home Affairs Editor October 23, 2005 UK 
The debate over drug laws will be reignited next month when one of the world’s leading experts is to argue that Scotland should legalise cannabis to dramatically cut the country’s soaring heroin addiction rates. Ethan Nadelmann will warn that the current UK drug policy is “damaging” and that the Scots should embrace the Dutch “coffee shop” model, under which cannabis is legally sold over the counter in licensed outlets.

Vietnam Veteran Launches SoldierWorks Website for all Veterans to File Memories of Military Service

Bill Janes, a two tour combat veteran of the Vietnam War has begun a project to reach out to Veterans and their families. The website is a place to contribute to an archive of memories of military service and sacrifice. Like many past and present U.S. soldiers, Bill has a story to tell, but wants to tell the story of every soldier that served America in all its conflicts.

Sam Stone: Collateral Damage (Thread)
Many Veterans are the "Enemy" of the Bush War
Sam Stone came home, To his wife and family After serving in the conflict overseas. And the time that he served, Had shattered all his nerves, And left a little shrapnel in his knee. But the morphine eased the pain, And the grass grew round his brain, And gave him all the confidence he lacked, With a Purple Heart and a monkey on his back. There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes...

What should move us to action is human dignity: the inalienable dignity of the oppressed, but also the dignity of each of us. We lose dignity if we tolerate the intolerable.

Marijuana Smokers are Filling Jails
with Cheap Labour for Corporate Profit
By Reverend Damuzi (Cannabis Culture Magazine)
The United States has a new form of slavery. SWAT teams are conducting military "cleansings" of poor, minority and marijuana-growing neighbourhoods under the guise of drug raids that particularly target women, black people and members of the cannabis culture.

Prisons are being privatized and converted into sweat-shops were, for example, pot huffers might find themselves in an ironic hell on earth, a dark cave where they are forced to answer unending calls for a travel agency for the rest of their lives. The entire operation is being coordinated by multinational corporate interests that reach deep into the heart and pockets of the White House. Imprisoning pot smokers.

The Real Price of Prisons

A particularly notorious example of this was the time Anslinger began to issue frequent press releases in 1935 that documented the horrible crimes committed by marijuana-intoxicated youth and/or addicts. With headlines announcing "The New Narcotic Menace" and the "Crusade Against Marijuana," articles that contained remarkably similar accounts appeared in major newspapers and national magazines. This was hardly surprising, in that mainstream media relied almost solely on the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN) for their facts, figures, and requisite horror stories (Becker 1963). The success of Anslinger’s efforts in this particular instance was found in the smooth passage of the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 by Congress (Dickson 1968; Morgan 1981)

Certain range weeds will make cows shake, twitch, and stumble back for more. Elephants purposely get drunk on fermented fruits..."

Marijuana May Spur New Brain Cells By Steve Mitchell

Washington, D.C. -- Scientists said Thursday that marijuana appears to promote the development of new brain cells in rats and have anti-anxiety and anti-depressant effects, a finding that could have an impact on the national debate over medical uses of the drug. Other illegal and legal drugs, including opiates, alcohol, nicotine and cocaine, have been shown to suppress the formation of new brain cells when used chronically...

The Government's Sick War on Marijuana By Jim Hightower

President Ronald Reagan, at the urging of then Vice President George Bush, appointed Carlton Turner as the White House Drug (czar) Advisor in 1981. Soon after Turner left office, Nancy Reagan recommended that no corporation be permitted to do business with the Federal government without having a urine purity policy in place to show their loyalty. Carlton Turner became a rich man in what has now become a huge growth industry: urine-testing.

Now's not the time to wave the "white flag" in the drug war - and if voters pass a statewide pot-legalization measure in November, that's exactly what will happen, the state's attorney general said Tuesday night. "We know that marijuana use by adults leads to an increase in pot use by children," said Attorney General John Suthers at a debate with pot-legalization advocate Mason Tvert.
