    Continuing corruption abounds in the saga of Phoenix Tears and the legalization of Cannabis in Canada…

    Continuing corruption abounds in the saga of Phoenix Tears and the legalization of Cannabis in Canada.

    Corruption is rampant in the U.S. and every other Country on a continuing basis as we seek to regain human rights and freedoms for all people.  Particularly Cannabis and Plant rights.

    The story focused on in this article is the one of Kevin Moore and Daren McCormick, members of “Phoenix Tears”, a group of activists  in Nova Scotia who are trying to maintain ability to treat Cancer patients and others with debilitating illnesses with RSO Cannabis Oil.

    Image may contain: plant, outdoor and nature

    They have been persecuted from the beginning – – meaning since Rick Simpson was forced to leave the Country after publicizing the “healing oil” for all its worth as a medicine in the late nineties.

    Be aware that the “legalization” of Cannabis/Marijuana is just the beginning of the control of this plant use and that we have gained absolutely no freedom in asking the Government(s) to “allow” us to use it thru “Legislation”.

    It was a Freedom which we already had, through Our Unalienable Rights as Human Beings on this Planet!

    It has been stolen through the U.N. and Our own Government’s Legislation and Statutes and Treaties and Controlled Substances Act.

    Stand for Freedom! 

    Fight for the Freedom from the Prohibition of Your Freedom’s!

    Letters From Thorne Peters: “My message much reach beyond these walls to be heard by that ONE PERSON who will hear it and use it to save themselves by following the LAW over LEGISLATION…FREE BY LAW NOT SLAVE TO LEGISLATION!” 


    Thorne Peters 2012

    After reaching out to Thorne Peters via letter about a month ago, I have since received letters back from him.  There have been ten Judges recuse themselves from the case so far, as reported by Ms. Linda Harrah on Facebook.

    Thorne Peters (right) and Leo AwGoWhat (right) in an undated photo. - THORNE PETERS/THORNEPETERS.COM

    On August 13th, the Memphis Flyer published that the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals upheld the original ruling and sentence on Peters’ case dealt by the Shelby County Criminal Court. A PDF of that Court case is HERE.

    In a 10 page handwritten letter from Thorne Peters he said that,

    “My message must reach beyond these walls to be heard by that ONE PERSON who will hear it and use it to save themselves by following the LAW over LEGISLATION!  FREE BY LAW NOT SLAVE TO LEGISLATION!

    We must never forget not only Thone Peters, but ALL of the prisoners of the drug war that have so savagely been incarcerated and denied their rights and freedom, lost their families and more, because of a commerce driven NWO Agenda to control each and every one of us by legislation to do so.  Enforced by the military industrial complex, which was in fact voted upon by us when we put the people into the government industrial complex, which we created, and in which we all now live, and have been living for at least the last 200 years, (because that’s as far back as I care to go).  So it is essentially all of our faults that this scenario came to be, not on purpose, but by lack of knowledge and understanding and the all out cover up by the entities which evolved beyond our understanding and ability to react.  In short, “they” think they have us all wrapped up nicely.

    Thorne states in his letter that he is facing at least 26 additional months, and possibly another 30 months “in the offing”, for a total of six years.  I surely hope and pray that this doesn’t happen.  I hope that all prisoners of prohibition will be set free soon.  There are a few States that are taking a step in the right direction, however it needs to be done at a Federal level, repeal their sentences, and mass release them all.  They are in fact prisoners of war. 

    Actus Reus Non Facit Reum Nisi Mens Sit Rea

    For the act to be guilty, the mind must be guilty, for the mind to be guilty, the act must be criminal.

    Without further ado I will give you excerpts of the words from   “TKP Thorne Peters”, from the Memphis Tennessee Penal Farm:

    ————————————————

    “My message must reach beyond these walls to be heard by that ONE PERSON who will hear it and use it to save themselves by following the LAW over LEGISLATION.”

    “Any who stand for Bills and propositions to create LEGISLATION to REPEAL, REFORM or REDRESS THE law STAND AGAINST FREEDOM!”

    “We will not be set FREE by the System that has been designed to enslave us with fees, fines, sin tax and penalties for engaging in consensual behavior that have been opined into arguments in the name of enacting LEGISLATION to save us from Ourselves, for Our own good.  PROHIBITION is a crime against humanity, but we have accepted it as an outgrowth of a Democracy based on providing Representation to inflict the will of the PEOPLE against the HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL.  Slaves did not need the EMANCIPATION PROCLOMATION to be FREE.  They were born FREE.  LEGISLATION robbed them of that FREEDOM with a CONSTITUTION that supports bigotry over moral turpitude.  ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, NOT SLAVES OR FEMALES.  WE THE PEOPLE cannot be given power over the FREE WILL of FREE individuals to engage in consensual acts of FREEDOM of choice…no matter how many SHEEPLE gather with their pitchforks, torches and LEGISLATION to rule me with Jackbootz and Kangaroo Courts.”

    “The LAW cannot change because I AM THE LAW.  LEGISLATION supports an artificial system of LEGAL and ILLEGAL that does not exist in nature.”

    “In 2003, in LAWRENCE V. TEXAS, the SUPREME COURT ruled that sodomy is now legal.  So, by this standard, if I sodomize you, how can you declare it is illegal?  In this primal act we understand the law.  I, the individual, the most powerful force on earth, declare that sodomy is UNLAWFUL when done to me!  But the individuals or gaggle of FLOCKTARDZ have the authority to tell others they cannot engage in an act that they find immoral, deviant, disgusting, or reprehensible…”

    If Our right to say YES is stolen by LEGISLATION then Our right to say NO is up for vote and that is RAPE!  We are brainwashed on the most fundamental level to deny Our individuality in order to be more easily led astray.  Look at the words we use to refer to an individual – OURSELVES, THEMSELVES, YOU is also plural or singular.  Individuals are denounced as RECALCITRANT, RABBLEROUSER, DISSIDENT, we have problems with authority – INFIDEL, BLASPHEMER, ENEMY OF THE STATE. CONFORM OR DIE! …

    “This is why the Holy/Legal Union of Marriage is imposed, so that you must answer to someone other than yourself.  If not GOD or CROWN OF GOVERNMENT, then your Spouse.  Pay a fee to the  establishment to prove your Love – The Contract of Marriage.  OR the ENTITY will label your children Bastards!  Control through stigma.  It costs little to get married and a lot to get a divorce.”

    “If we go FREE, the ENTITY goes broke!”

    “Two people commit the same Act, (ACTOS REUS), for the same purpose, (MENS REA), yet by the Democratic process of LEGISLATION by REPRESENTATION, one can be declared a Criminal and the other a Customer.”

    “Two people toke up.  Where are you at in America?  Are you following the rules?  Two people use a drug.  Just say no to drugs. Which drugs?  If you are using  drug, did you pay your fee to the AMA and go to the monopoly of Big Pharma?  Are you a Customer or a Criminal for using that drug?  Are you using one of the drugs prescribed by the MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX or one of the drugs PROHIBITED BY PRESCRIPTION by the LEGAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.  If you’re not paying a fee to the entity there will be fines.  So be good SHEEPLE, and do what you are told to do, the way you are told to do it and you will be a FREE CITIZEN in a FREE COUNTRY, even though there is RESTRAINT OF TRADE in the FREE MARKET ENTERPRISE. You are FREE to buy what the ENTITY allows you to buy!”

    “We are trained to believe that LEGISLATION sets us FREE, when in reality LEGISLATION is what declares us SLAVES.  The motto on our $ is E PLURIBUS UNUM – FROM MANY ONE.”

    The reality is that we are conscripted by LEGISLATION to become MANY rather than ONE.

    “As Senator Huey P. Long said:  When Fascism comes to America, it will not be called Fascism…It will be called Anti-Fascism

    “Denouncing Our blessed CONSTITUTION makes you an ANARCHIST, a SUBVERSIVE.  As good Americans we must follow the CONSTITUTION…well, which version?”

    “The one that supported SLAVERY, upheld CHATTEL?”

    “States Rights enforced atrocities that were confirmed by Congressional Act.  The Fugitive Slave Act, The Mann Act, The Volstead Act, The Racial Integrity Act, Comstock Law, are all violations of Our Human Rights and were enforced in Supreme Court decisions.  In Dred Scott V. Sanford, SCOTUS ruled that Negroes were like Hogs.”

    “You notice that in School, they never teach us about the people who stood up as individuals against the system; only of those who stood up in SUPPORT of the System.  We do not learn the names of those who stood up as Individuals to declare that they are FREE BY LAW, NOT SLAVE TO LEGISLATION.  Linda Brown V. Board of Education; Aurelia Browder who defeated segregated buses.  Estelle T. Griswold who ended Comstock Law against Birth Control Pills, and Professor Timothy Leary who defeated the Marihuana Tax Stamp Act of 1937, which became the Controlled Substances Act of 1970.  And here we are!”

    “And who claims to be the great voice of the LEGAL movement? NORML.  NORML wants to REFORM Marijuana Laws, not END PROHIBITION.  50 years of what?  They’ve got SHEEPLE cheering for these legislated victories in State after State, and in every State there are PLANT PRISONERS, and in every State someone is getting busted for POT.  In NO State can Police or Government Officials use it.  In NO State is it available as part of your treatment on your Health Care Options, and in NO State is a Medical Marijuana Card respected by Employers who are Drug Testing You for Employment!”

    “Professional Athletes cannot use it without getting busted, and POTHEADZ can get their Kids taken away!  There is a Bill for RIGHT TO TRY if you are trying to stay alive and use new fangled pharmaceutical Drugs, but POT is not one of them!  Yeah, we got LEGAL WEED!  After decades of fighting the ENTITY to prove that POT is NOT a Drug, SHEEPLE now refer to it as a Drug to beg to get some!  DIVIDE and CONQUER!  MEDHEADZ V. POTHEADZ.”

    “The Legal Industrial Complex realizes it can no longer have the monopoly on Cannabis, so they want to split the difference by handing us over to the Medical Industrial Complex.”

    “Thus, here I remain, facing charges due to a BILL in a CRIMINAL COURT, demanding to face a VICTIM in the name of the LAW, and I am told that the STATE is the VICTIM, according to LEGISLATION that enfranchises Criminal Codes.  I demand that the CRIMINAL COURT define my GUILTY ACT only to be told that I have VIOLATED a CONGRESSIONAL ACT, TO WIT:  The CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT, amended from the CONTROLLED DRUG SUBSTANCES ACT, not only to silence the point that POT is not a Drug, but to keep their greatest enemy under wraps:  HEMP!”

    “LEGISLATION MAKES SLAVES OF US ALL!  WHEN YOU STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS BY STANDING AGAINST THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS WE ALL FALL DOWN!”

    “So, I am on an Island, alone.  I reject all forms of Process to give me a portion of what is mine.  I will not negotiate with the Carjacker to allow me to use my Car on the weekends.  It’s MY Car!

    “I go to Court and I am told by NORML, The “Nixon Organization of Reprehensible (Marijuana) Lawyers”, to join them on working to pass LEGISLATION.  That is Politically motivated Judicial Bias, which is a Crime, to go along with Restraint of Trade.  Perversion of Justice.  There is No Victim.”

    “When the Individual faces an Individual in a Court of Law, there is Justice.  When the Individual answers to the ENTITY in a CRIMINAL COURT there is oppression.”

    “Through these various PROHIBITIONS, Our Country is home to 25% of the Prison population, even though we represent 5% of the World.  But it is far more insidious than that. These numbers do not include all those on Parole or Probation, and it does not count those sentenced to DRUG REHAB.  America accounts for 1/2 of the arrests in the World.  Two of three do not face a Victim – They answer to charges based on a BILL, that has been Legislated into existence.”  So if the ENTITY did not have PROHIBITION, 2 of 3 of them would be gone.  Judges, Lawyers, Bailiffs, Clerks, Transcribers, Jailers, Parole and Probation Officers, Bail Bondsmen and others.  If Cops weren’t on FB as “Bob Smith” hunting POTHEADZ or on Craigslist pretending to be seeking Prostitutes, THEY WOULD BE OUT HUNTING THUGZ NOT DRUGS!  Then there would be a Cop on every corner Protecting and Serving the People, and Criminals would be less likely to rear their ugly heads on Our Streets!  Where would the ENTITY be then?”

    “It doesn’t matter what you BELIEVE; it only matters how you BEHAVE.”~THE KINGPIN THORNE PETERS!

    Wayward Bill is at Seattle Hempfest 2019 


    American flag and pot plant

    This weedend (pun intended), “Where’s Wayward Bill” was attending the Washington State, Seattle Hempfest, now in it’s 28th year, originally began in 1991!

    Wayward has attended a number of these events in the past and has always made a great showing for the USMjParty.

    The USMjParty in coming up on it’s 17th Anniversary on November 25, 2019,  and this was a great event to attend to mark the occasion.  I only wish I could have had the same experience, in that I’ve never been able to make the trip, however, it will remain on my “bucket-list” to be fulfilled at some point, (I hope)!

    Getting back to the task at hand, the following are some links to posts originally made on Facebook that marked the occasion.

    Image may contain: 1 person

    First of all, it’s technically not a cannabis festival. “It’s a protest festival,” McPeak explained. “The Constitution of the United States says we have the right to peacefully assemble and air disagreements with the government.” That’s how the fest started, back in the summer of 1991 — as an offshoot of the 1990-91 Gulf War protests and peace actions McPeak helped organize. The purpose wasn’t to light up a joint, but to express public outrage over the fact that lighting up a joint could lead to prison.

    Freedom Is NOT Free And Thorne Peters Is Paying For Our Freedom To Use Cannabis, By Being Incarcerated Unjustly, In A Shelby County Tennessee Penal Farm… 


    No photo description available.

    Above:  TKP Thorne Peters and Linda Harrah, 2012.

    The story starts here:  CHRONOLOGY OF CORRUPTION!

    puffin tuff-6

    For over a year now TKP Thorne Peters has been incarcerated in Shelby County Tennessee.  He was last arrested on what was to be his sentencing date for April 3rd, 2018, but ended up being a “failure to appear” charge, and later on a cannabis charge after he decided to smoke Cannabis in front of the Courthouse on that day instead of showing up for Court.

    The history of the conspiracy is explained on the Thorne Peters Website along with a lot of other information.  Also, a very in-depth article about the pending cases is written by The Memphis Truth Commission.

    Previous articles from USMjPartyKY are here.

    Actus Reus Non Facit Reum Nisi Mens Sit Rea

    For the act to be guilty, the mind must be guilty, for the mind to be guilty, the act must be criminal.

    thorne

    Above:  Video by Lady L (Linda Harrah) on Facebook.  Includes latest updates as of 5/13/19.

    The latest information in this saga is that at least six Officials have been recused from Thorne Peter’s trial for varying reasons.  They are:  Carolyn Wade Blackett, Judge Paula Skahan, J. Robert Carter Jr.,  J. Lammey Jr., John Wheeler Campbell, and Asst. DA Mike         Mc Cusker.

    On Monday, Criminal Court Judge Jim Lammey, in a separate incident, has caused quite a stir over posts he made on Facebook.  A number of organizations are requesting that he be censured.

    June 3rd is the date set for there to be another Judge assigned to the case.

    Meanwhile, at the Penal Farm, Thorne continues to fight human rights abuses within the system of the prison.  Commissary items, books and other reading materials, paper and pens, things that we use everyday, these prisoners had been given no access to where Thorne is being held.  As a result of Thorne’s intervention, the policies were changed.  These items are now available.  He continues to assist from within wherever he can.

    ATTENTION! WARNING! DANGER! HARK & PAY HEED!!! JUST SAY: “NO MENS REA!” THEN STFU! PpP! LIKE & SHARE! TAG! NO MORE BLAH BLAH BLAH! “SPEAK NOT ON POT!”

    You have to ask why so many judges are recusing on his Cannabis cases? Why they have to make it about something besides pot? This time it is failure to appear. When will he get a clear cannabis case?  Lady L

    THORNE PETERS: 387 DAYS AND STILL COUNTING, IN THE MEMPHIS, TN PENAL SYSTEM–STILL FIGHTING FOR OUR RIGHTS… 


    thorne_peters_portraitcrop

    SINCE APRIL 3rd, 2018 Thorne Peters has been incarcerated in the prison system of MemphisTennessee.

    As he fights for his own rights and OUR rights as a cannabis consumers,  he also fights for prisoners rights from within the walls of the Penal Farm in Memphis. 

    May 2, 2019 is the next court date scheduled and will be in Judge Campbell’s Courtroom.  Judge Carter and Judge Lammey are recused from the case.

    A very in depth article has been published at “MemphisTruth.Org” in which Thorne Peters ordeal thus far has been featured.  I encourage everyone to view it.

    “We are political prisoners.  We are having our rights violated by a prohibition.”

    “We are consenting adults in a free society, with free will, committing acts of consensual behavior, that are nobody else’s business.  Yet the Government industrial complex, the legal industrial complex, continue to make it their business.”

    *Medical Pot – “Why can’t we all have pot?”

    *Decriminalized Pot – Where can I buy some legal decriminalized pot?”

    “There is no such thing as a non-violent criminal, all crime is violent”

    As written in the U.S. Marijuana Party introduction, “More Americans are in jail today for marijuana offenses than at any previous time in American history.”

    These people who are unjustly incarcerated are our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, children, cousins, other family members and friends.  They do not deserve to be in a cage for a NON CRIME!  We are NOT CRIMINALS!  We are peaceful, law-abiding and loving Citizens who deserve the right to live in peace.

    We must do everything we can to help these individuals fight for their own liberty and OURS!

    The war will never be over until each and every one of these people are free and have all their rights restored.

    Number of people arrested for a marijuana law violation in 2017: 659,700

    Cooper, 38, headed off to continue serving his sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole for conspiracy to sell marijuana.

    CAN DO CLEMENCY .COM has many people who have been incarcerated for “Pot” for life sentences.  Please view and share.

    Meanwhile, while we wait to be free again …

    Please call AMY WEIRICH; D.A., Memphis, TN (901) 222-1300

    And also call the Tennessee Governor at (615) 741-2001 and say “investigate THE KINGPIN conspiracy…”

    THEN:

    Visit ThornePeters.com and click the ‘420 NITE CLUB BUST’ and ‘CONSPIRACY’ banners to get the story on the now TEN YEAR CONSPIRACY against THE KINGPIN THORNE PETERS that lead to this moment.

    Kentucky Will March To The Capital, Once Again… 


    gatewood rainbow farm

    Rainbow Farm was located in Vandalia, Michigan & was a cannabis friendly community. They had great concerts & speakers. The government came in later & killed the owners & stole the farm from the legal birth right of the son, Robert, 1 week before 9-11 (September 3rd & 4th,2001). Tom Crosslin & Rollie Rolhm were the owners & each one of them were systematically gunned down & tortured after being out numbered 300 to 1. In order to stop a memorial day concert, that was to start a signature campaign to legalize cannabis in the state of Michigan.

                                              ——————————–

    1/13/2019

    ShereeKrider

    The Country as a whole has come a long way since the incident above in 2001, but it still has a very long way to go.  We have 11 “legalized States” and 33 “medicinal States” to date according to NORML.  More than the majority of Americans believe it should be made “lawful”.  Many sick people including children are suffering needlessly and we have the ability to help rectify the situation.

    We should not still have to be going to the Capital in Frankfort to beg for something that we should have had in Kentucky more than seven years ago.  In fact, it never should have been “unlawful” to possess in the first place.

    Gatewood Galbraith, “The greatest Governor that Kentucky never had”, spoke to this issue many times and had he been elected we would not still be in this same fight today.  He said, “You have got to get political.  Because if you don’t get political then I’m gonna die in the streets!” 

    The number of people who are dying in the streets has exponentially increased in the past 5+ years in earnest.  The crisis was started by the Government and their Pharmaceutical cronies who promoted highly addictive opioid drugs for daily use to patients who were suffering and  they bit the bait.  After everyone was sufficiently addicted to the pharmaceuticals the Government claimed an “opioid crisis” and immediately withdrew these needed medications by way of intimidating the Physicians and forced drug testing to the point that the Medical Establishment could no longer take the chance of losing their Practice’s, and so they immediately withdrew needed medicines from Patients who legitimately needed them, as well as other’s who had become addicted for other reasons – and there are many reasons…  This in turn caused people to literally die in the streets due to a dire need to medicate and the ample supply in the streets of much more potent and deadly drugs than what the Physicians had been prescribing them to begin with.

    Some of us were strong enough and smart enough to turn to Cannabis which saved our lives, even though it is illegal.  A lot of us have lost close friends and family members to this ‘war on drugs’.  Many of us grieve daily because of it.

    There have been Senators, Representatives and Citizen Activists, working hard to see Cannabis regulation and lawfulness is passed in the very State that in WWII the Government pleaded with people to grow Hemp for their War efforts.  The people responded to their requests in a time of need.  However, the Government turns their heads the other way when the Citizens request that they help them establish a safe and lawful way to use Cannabis, medically and otherwise.  Not only would this help the multitudes of patients who direly need this medication, it would also establish a lawful product that can be taxed and used for the greater good of the State we reside in, including new businesses and employment.  As a result, even those who chose not to partake in Cannabis would benefit from the legalization and taxation of the  product – much like alcohol – with much less lawlessness than alcohol promotes…

    It would establish a lawful alternative to Alcohol and Tobacco and other illicit drugs, such as street level opioids which are destroying families and responsible for unending deaths even as we speak.  Yet, to date, our Kentucky Government has refused to act upon this issue. 

    Why has Kentucky Government taken such a path in governing of the people?

    “Petrochemical-Pharmaceutical-Military-Industrial-Transnational-Corporate-Fascist-Elite-Bastards”  LINK

    For a more in-depth read on why and how our Country has fell into the hands of the NWO you can view this LINK.  “The Elkhorn Manifesto” is an archived page of the Kentucky Marijuana Party, written in 1996 by R. William Davis, and collaborated with Gatewood Galbraith. 

    Here we are, once again, in the year of Our Lord, 2019, begging for our leaders to hear our plea’s.  And once again, they will try to ignore us! 

    As far as I am concerned, the lawfulness of Cannabis should first have been rightfully returned to the people through REPEAL of Federal Treaties and Statutes which made it unlawful to begin with.  Possibly as far back as the 1914 Harrison Narcotics Tax Act.  However, the situation has been taken into the hands of the individual States and their “States Rights” because the Federal Government refused to stand up for the rights of our people.  Instead they have enlisted a “New World Order” to do their dirty work which seeks to contain society at large – world wide control of the masses, control of all plants, food, medicines,  WATER, etc., to be placed under strict guidelines to which we must abide by the rules or suffer the consequences.

    We have become damned if we do submit to the law and damned if we do not follow it as well. 

    There is  research already out there and patients are being helped and in some cases literally saved from an early death by using Cannabis.  Many people have been saved from addiction by using Cannabis. 

    We cannot wait another year to change the Cannabis Statutes in Kentucky.  We need it now.  We needed it 20 years ago.

    There are currently two Bills in Kentucky Legislature – one in Senate and one in the House.  Both bills should be passed and this is my reasoning for this:

    SB 80 / Dan Malano Seum / Establishes the “Department of Cannabis Control” which will oversee lawful consumption of Cannabis in Kentucky by adults 21 and over.  This Bill gives limited and controlled freedom back to the people in that it does allow for growing on our own property and consumption as well as sets the stage for business to be lawful throughout Kentucky.  This legislation could be enacted fairly quickly and jumpstart the economy here.  It is imperative that we implement this legislation this year if we seek to make our State livable again.

    HB 136 / Establishes a very strict “Medical Cannabis” bill for bonified Patients.  Because of the nature of illnesses and the fact that many Children could be served by this Bill it is imperative that “medicinal Cannabis” be made available in Kentucky to those who are in need, medically, whether they be adult or child.  Many people who are not familiar with Cannabis and it’s use would serve to be protected as patients by this medical legislation.  The problem is that with the measures necessary to comply with the Bill as it is written it would most certainly be a slow process to set up across the State and reach all patients equally.   However, we should proceed immediately on this Act as well.

    Additionally, a drug-free workplace Bill for the use of legal Hemp CBD products, currently sold on the open market:

    SB 83 / Perry B. Clark “Shauna’s Law”  Relating to a drug free workplace / Seeks to mandate an appeals process for those employer’s who enforce drug-testing upon their employee’s which will address those persons who have been found in violation of the drug-free workplace policy by testing positive on random drug screens for legal Hemp products such as CBD.  It would set aside that violation if proven that a legal product had been used.  This Bill must be passed in order to preserve the integrity of the Hemp market as well as employee’s rights.

    IF our Legislator’s  and Governor do not seek to enact the Bill’s which we as a People have requested  for our health and well-being in general, then the political system of the Commonwealth of Kentucky needs to be immediately and completely changed and replaced.  This would also include other issues of great importance in Kentucky such as the Pension Crisis.

    The corruption in Kentucky runs far and wide and seeks to be ended this year.  The time is now for change…not later.  We cannot wait another year to be lawful!

    Tags: 420, cannabis, , , Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Oregon)   

    New Congressional Marijuana Bill Is Actually Numbered H.R. 420 


    Tom Angell Contributor

    In a hat tip to marijuana culture, lawmakers on Capitol Hill have officially reserved the number H.R. 420 for a bill that would dramatically change federal cannabis laws.

    420, of course, is a special number for marijuana enthusiasts, who celebrate the plant extra hard every April 20.

    The new bill filed in the House on Wednesday by Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) is titled the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act. If passed, it would remove cannabis from the federal Controlled Substances Act.

    “While the bill number may be a bit tongue in cheek, the issue is very serious. Our federal marijuana laws are outdated, out of touch and have negatively impacted countless lives,” Blumenauer said in a press release. “Congress cannot continue to be out of touch with a movement that a growing majority of Americans support. It’s time to end this senseless prohibition.”

    This isn’t the first time that 420 has worked its way into official legislative numbering.

    California’s first effort to create statewide medical cannabis regulations was through a bill numbered SB 420 in 2003.

    In 2017, a Rhode Island senator filed a marijuana legalization bill given the designation of S 420.

    And on Capitol Hill, the first time the House voted on measure to block the Department of Justice from interfering with state medical cannabis laws, it was through an amendment considered under 2003’s Roll Call 420.

    The current legislation, which Blumenauer picked up from former Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), who was sworn in on Tuesday as Colorado’s new governor, would also transfer cannabis enforcement authority from Drug Enforcement Administration to a renamed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana, Firearms and Explosives.

    A similarly renamed Alcohol, Tobacco and Marijuana Tax and Trade Bureau within the Department of the Treasury would also have oversight authority, as would the Food and Drug Administration. Federal permits would be issued for cultivating, packaging, selling and importing marijuana.

    Shipping or transporting marijuana into states that have not legalized it would be prohibited.

    Last Congress, Polis’s version of the bill garnered 26 cosponsors.

    Separately, Blumenauer recently released a step-by-step plan to federally legalize marijuana in 2019.

    His new bill is the third piece of standalone cannabis legislation filed in the new Congress, which began last week.

    Marijuana Arrests Are Increasing Despite Legalization, New FBI Data Shows 


    Tom Angell Contributor i  Policy  

    Marijuana arrests are rising in the U.S., even as more states legalize cannabis.

    There is now an average of one marijuana bust roughly every 48 seconds, according to a new FBI report released on Monday.

    The increase in marijuana arrests—659,700 in 2017, compared to 653,249 in 2016—is driven by enforcement against people merely possessing the drug as opposed to selling or growing it, the data shows.

    Last year, there were 599,282 marijuana possession arrests in the country, up from 587,516 in 2016. Meanwhile, busts for cannabis sales and manufacturing dropped, from 65,734 in 2016 to 60,418 in 2017.

    The increase in cannabis possession arrests comes despite the fact that four additional states legalized marijuana on Election Day 2016.

    While among those states, legal recreational sales were only in effect in Nevada by the end of 2017, the prohibition on possession for adults was lifted soon after the successful votes there as well as in California, Maine and Massachusetts.

    “At a time when more than 100 deaths per day are caused by opioid overdoses, it is foolish to focus our limited law enforcement resources on a drug that has caused literally zero,” Don Murphy, federal policies director for the Marijuana Policy Project said in an interview.

    “Actions by law enforcement run counter to both public support and basic morality,” added NORML Political Director Justin Strekal. “In a day and age where twenty percent of the population lives in states which have legalized and nearly every state has some legal protections for medical cannabis or its extract, the time for lawmakers to end this senseless and cruel prohibition that ruins lives.”

    Overall, marijuana arrests made up 40.4% of the nation’s 1,632,921 drug arrests in 2017.

    Drug arrests as a whole also increased last year, up from 1,572,579 in 2016.

    There is now a drug bust every 19 seconds in the U.S.

    “We are asking the Council to adopt a Lowest Law Enforcement Priority for cannabis possession in Jefferson County” 


    Image may contain: people sitting and indoor

    RE: LOUISVILLE METRO COUNCIL AND MARIJUANA                 ENFORCEMENT.

    Dan Seum

    3 hrs ·

    We will be addressing Metro Council this evening at 6:00.

     We are asking the Council to adopt a Lowest Law Enforcement Priority for cannabis possession in Jefferson County.

    No more arrests Or citations for simple cannabis possession!

    We have support in the council and we need the support of those who are skeptical….Please attend this meeting, and subsequent meetings, to show support for the Ordinance…Below is the written speech that I will use to plea for the ordinance…

    Let’s Fill the room!

    My name is Dan Seum, Jr.

    I represent the majority of Kentucky and Jefferson County Citizens who believe cannabis should be legalized for medicinal and responsible adult use.

    Polls throughout Kentucky have proven that the majority of our voting public support cannabis legalization. A most recent poll conducted by WHAS in Jefferson County reported over 85% approve of legalization to help with Kentucky’s pension crisis.

    The enforcement of marijuana possession laws needlessly ensnares thousands of our otherwise law-abiding citizens into the criminal justice system and wastes millions of Kentucky taxpayers’ dollars that could be better invested in our communities. What’s more, it is carried out with staggering racial bias. Despite being a priority for police departments nationwide, the War on Marijuana has failed to reduce marijuana use and availability. In any given year Kentucky ranks #1,2, or 3 in marijuana production as well as exports.

    All wars are expensive, and the War on Marijuana has been no different. Not only has our state and local governments blown millions that could have been otherwise invested, the personal cost to those arrested is often significant and can linger for years. When people are arrested for possessing even tiny amounts of marijuana, it can have dire collateral consequences that affect their eligibility for public housing and student financial aid, employment opportunities, and child custody determinations.

    According to the ACLU’s original analysis, marijuana arrests now account for over half of all drug arrests in the United States. Nationwide, the arrest data revealed one consistent trend: significant racial bias. Despite roughly equal usage rates, Blacks are 4 times more likely than whites to be arrested for marijuana. Most people arrested cannot afford a $500 bond levied upon them and are forced to remain in jail until a formal hearing, which is another tremendous cost to the taxpayer.

    There were 678 marijuana arrests in Jefferson County in 2016. That’s more than cocaine, meth and heroin combined. That doesn’t seem like a lot for Jefferson County but it doesn’t tell the whole picture. Even if the police just issue you a citation you still have a record and that record may follow you around for a long time. Defendants are forced into drug classes, which can be costly. There is subsequent drug testing, which is amazingly counterproductive as it incentivizes people to use spice, or opiates that are not detected as long.

    Frankfort has failed to advance cannabis legislation year after year. We are asking that Our Metro Council adopt an ordinance making cannabis possession the Lowest Law Enforcement Priority of the Louisville Metro Police Department. We believe your unified voice of approval will send a message to our mayor and to Frankfort. Please lead us as we are determined to end the war on medical and responsible cannabis consumers.

    SOURCE LINK

    legalize-marijuana-leaf-red-white-blue-flag-300x300BELOW IS THE ORDINANCE AS WRITTEN:

    LOWEST LAW ENFORCEMENT PRIORITY ORDINANCE FOR CANNABIS POSSESSION

    We the people of Louisville ordain that investigations, citations, arrests, property seizures, and prosecutions for cannabis possession, cultivation or use in the Louisville metro area are the lowest law enforcement priority of the Louisville Metro Police Department. The Louisville Metro Council shall transmit notification of the enactment of this initiative to the state and federal elected officials who represent the city of Louisville, the Governor of Kentucky, The President of the United States of America and The Secretary General of the United Nations.

    Findings:

    (a) Current federal and state policies needlessly harm the citizens of Louisville. Numerous bills have been filed to remove criminal penalties for cannabis possession in the state legislature over the last five years and the Commonwealth has failed to act.

    (b) The Institute of Medicine has found that cannabis has medicinal value and is not a gateway drug. Evidence shows cannabis is actually an exit drug from alcohol and opiate addiction.

    (c) Cannabis is incorrectly scheduled and should be removed from federal scheduling.

    (d) Louisville should determine its cannabis policies locally and Metro Council would prefer to move away from incarceration. We believe a regulated market that allows adult possession and medical use for minors under a doctor’s care should replace the current failed policies.

    (e) Louisville Metro Council believes that current state laws punish medical patients unfairly and fail to reflect the reality of responsible adult use.

    (f) Louisville Metro Council believes sufficient evidence exists to conclude cannabis prohibition, especially through drug testing, creates a bias toward alcohol and more dangerous drugs. This bias has exacerbated prescription drug abuse and is casual to the creation/use of synthetic marijuana.

    (g) Law enforcement resources would be better spent fighting serious and violent crimes.

    (h) Decades of arresting millions of cannabis users have failed to control cannabis use or reduce its availability. Metro Council believes that a regulated market would be more effective than the current black market at limiting youth access.

    (i) Cannabis prohibition disproportionately affects low income and minority communities.

    Definitions:

    For the purposes of this chapter, the following words and phrases shall have the meanings respectively ascribed to them by this section:

    a) “Adult” means an individual who is 18 years of age or older.

    (b) “Louisville Metro law enforcement officer” means a member of the Louisville Metro Police Department or any other city agency or department that engages in law enforcement activity.

    (c) “Lowest law enforcement priority” means a priority such that all law enforcement activities related to all offenses other than adult, personal-use cannabis offenses shall be a higher priority than all law enforcement activities related to cannabis offenses, where the cannabis was intended for adult personal use, other than the exceptions designated in this chapter.

    (d) “Cannabis” means all parts of the cannabis plant, whether growing or not; the seeds thereof; the resin extracted from any part of the plant; and every compound, manufacture, salt, derivative, mixture, or preparation of the plant, its seeds, or its resin.

    Directives:

    (a) Louisville Metro law enforcement officers shall make law enforcement activity relating to cannabis offenses, where the cannabis was intended for adult personal use, their lowest law enforcement priority. Law enforcement activities relating to cannabis offenses include, but are not limited to, investigation, citation, arrest, seizure of property, or providing assistance to the prosecution of adult cannabis offenses.

    (b) This lowest law enforcement priority policy shall not apply to use of cannabis on public property or driving under the influence.

    (c) This lowest law enforcement priority policy shall apply to cooperating with state or federal agents to arrest, cite, investigate, prosecute, or seize property from adults for cannabis offenses included in the lowest law enforcement priority policy.

    (d) Louisville Metro law enforcement officers shall not accept or renew formal deputation or commissioning by a federal law enforcement agency if such deputation or commissioning will include investigating, citing, arresting, or seizing property from adults for cannabis offenses included in the lowest law enforcement priority policy.

    (e) Louisville shall not accept any federal funding that would be used to investigate, cite, arrest, prosecute, or seize property from adults for cannabis offenses included in the lowest law enforcement priority policy. This shall not prevent Louisville from receiving any federal funding not used for purposes contrary to this chapter.

    Oversight:

    (a) The Louisville Metro Council shall ensure the timely implementation of this chapter by:

    (1) Designing, with consultation with the Louisville Metro Police Department, a supplemental report form for Louisville Metro law enforcement officers to use to report all adult cannabis arrests, citations, and property seizures and all instances of officers assisting in state or federal arrests, citations, and property seizures for any adult cannabis offenses. The supplemental report form shall be designed with the goal of allowing the Metro Council to ascertain whether the lowest law enforcement priority policy was followed;

    (2) Receiving grievances from individuals who believe they were subjected to law enforcement activity contrary to the lowest law enforcement priority policy;

    (3) Requesting additional information from any Louisville Metro law enforcement officer who engaged in law enforcement activity relating to one or more cannabis offenses under circumstances which appear to violate the lowest law enforcement priority policy. An officer’s decision not to provide additional information shall not be grounds for discipline; and

    (4) Reporting semi-annually on the implementation of this chapter, with the first report being issued nine months after the enactment of this chapter. These reports shall include but not necessarily be limited to: the number of all arrests, citations, property seizures, and prosecutions for cannabis offenses in Louisville; the breakdown of all cannabis arrests and citations by race, age, specific charge, and classification as infraction, misdemeanor, or felony; any instances of law enforcement activity that the Metro Council believes violated the lowest law enforcement priority policy; and the estimated time and money spent by the city on law enforcement and punishment for adult cannabis offenses. These reports shall be made with the cooperation of the County District Attorney’s Office, the Louisville Metro Police Department, and any other Louisville law enforcement agencies in providing needed data.

    (b) Louisville law enforcement officers shall submit to the Metro Council a supplemental report within seven calendar days after each adult cannabis arrest, citation, or property seizure or instance of assisting in a state or federal arrest, citation, or property seizure for any adult cannabis offense in Metro Louisville.

    Notifications:

    Beginning three months after the enactment of this chapter, the city clerk shall execute a mandatory and ministerial duty of sending letters on an annual basis to the Louisville’s U.S. Representative, both of Louisville’s U.S. Senators, Louisville’s Senators and Representative members in the Kentucky State Legislature, the Governor of Kentucky, the President of the United States and the UN Secretary-General. This letter shall state, “The citizens of Louisville, Kentucky have passed an initiative to de-prioritize adult cannabis offenses, where the cannabis is intended for personal adult use or medical use by minors under a doctor’s care, and we request that State, Federal and International governments take immediate steps to enact similar laws.” This duty shall be carried out until state, federal and international laws are changed accordingly.

    Enforceability; Severability:

    All sections of this chapter are mandatory. A violation of this chapter is not a criminal offense.

    If any provision of this chapter or the application thereof to any person or circumstance is held invalid, the remainder of the chapter and the application of such provisions to other persons or circumstances shall not be affected thereby.

    I applaud the the city for taking this step in diverting low-level drug offenses to treatment instead of jail. Our “no arrests for cannabis” ordinance we introduced fits perfectly with this harm reduction strategy. Louisville citizens who possess cannabis don’t need treatment unless other drugs are involved.

    I’m feeling really good about getting our cannabis ordinance passed, so come and support us tomorrow night Thursday at 6 p.m. 601 West Jefferson at the Louisville Metro Council meeting. We have three great speakers:

    Dan Seum
    Matthew Bratcher
    Sean Vandevander

    Join me and support these folks. Let’s get Kentucky’s two largest cities, Louisville and Lexington, to stop arresting people for cannabis BEFORE the 2019 KGA session!
