While some States in the US have opted to allow doctors to prescribe marijuana for medical purposes, the Federal Authorities remain impervious and continue to harass and prosecute within those States with the full backing of the Corporate Muppet.
I have read about how Corporate America buys elections. Chomsky also stated this;
“Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state”.
Hearst; a prize scumbag, with DuPont’s unadulterated backing, carried out a propaganda program during the first half of the twentieth century which succeeded in destroying the world hemp industry. The effect of that history has resulted in the premature deaths of countless millions of people. That effect continues to this day.
Eventually the right thing will be done and it will be cigarette manufacturers who will be put out of business, but first America will have to take back control from their Corporate overlords. I expect it may well be the Chinese who will probably light the spark to start that happening. They do think differently.
I salute Judge Reichbach in making public the facts surrounding his own circumstances. In his admission to the NY Times he said;
“This is not a law-and-order issue; it is a medical and a human rights issue”.
Even though his ‘crime’ can be classified as a ‘first offence’, the Feds can take his job, his status and his character. They can have him incarcerated; if they wish.
I’m just wondering what the Corporate dealers will order done to the Judge to shore up their legal dam. He has after all provided the pro-camp with the one thing which alone could cause the entire legal house of cards to crumble.
As an insider, he seems not to fear retribution; but I could be wrong about that.
