Hi Fellow Illicit Drug Users Of The World,

sigh...

It's so disheartening. Our Whole Earth Drug Culture has become obtuse. We can't even recognize that we're prey, duped into subsidizing the wholesale cannibalistic carnage of the poor and helpless among us. We say the Drug War is a failure, but every second every day I'm subjected to material evidence we're wrong. The Prohibition Cartel has eviscerated our spirit, amputated our reason and common sense, and every day's passing mutes our once mellifluous song just a little more, now barely a whisper... despite there are so many of us, I'm positive! If we could only be sparked...

Every argument against the boycott I'm getting is wholly based on loaded government Drug War statistics and propaganda. I can't believe any of us are digesting this bullshit but it's true, then we're spitting it back up against ourselves as if it were god's honest truth and it was delivered by Moses himself instead of these fucking Drug Warriors and their Madison Avenue advertising firms on retainer to our tax money, as they herd us into prisons, destroy our families, and extinguish our dreams.

My premise this will work, if we can gain enough momentum so 50% -- 100% participate, is based on the Worldwide Drug Money Laundering Cycle, how much it processes each year, and how it works to bolster Civilization, while it finances the Drug War to assure its continuance.

I started with Peter McWilliams's (an excellent researcher -- and one of our own murdered souls) figure of $1 trillion annually piped through the Drug War Laundromat, as stated in expert testimony before the US Congress. The cite is his book, "Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do" in the chapter: "Enforcing laws against consensual activities is very expensive", which both can be found here: http://www.mcwilliams.com/books/books/aint/205.htm

To avoid the inevitable claims the figure is preposterous or unrealistic (despite that it was generated by Prohibition Cartel personnel in their own board meetings) I arbitrarily subtracted $400,000,000,000 which of course leaves $600,000,000,000 per annum or $50,000,000,000 per month as stated in the e-flyer.

My picture of how the actual Laundry Machine works, and why it would quake a whole lot of serious and visible shit if we could cut off its gas for a month, was largely derived from a very credible, well researched and simply written explanation of the process from A--Z by the George Bush Sr. administration Assistant Secretary of Housing -- Federal Housing Commissioner, Catherine Austin Fitts, in a 3 part series, further certified and published by Al Giordano (and his impeccable credentials) over at www.narconews.com, called "How the Money Works in the Illicit Drug Trade". Please note particularly the concept of the Red Button at the end of Part 3. If we can make this boycott happen, effectively PUSH THE RED BUTTON OURSELVES, I believe Catherine Fitts, that the effects will be substantial, enough to shake the rest of the world into stopping this 85 year reign of terror against us, before their own society begins to crumble...

The barbarism of this longest running misery soaked version of Witch Hunt and Inquisition in human history is rife. Since the early 1960s, when the US sponsored (via UN treaty) the globalization of the American Drug War & Inquisition, what started as a snowball rolling down a molehill (with the 1914 Harrison Narcotics Tax Act) has relentlessly gained momentum and ferocity until now it's an avalanche crashing down the slopes of a worldwide Mt Everest. Throughout the 1990s the US Drug War Victims numbered close to or over 1,000,000 per year. I think it's a reasonable assumption that the hundreds of millions of our kindred spirits throughout the rest of the world have suffered at least as many casualties, and probably many more. Expanding the scope of reference to the beginnings of this shame on humanity, easily encompasses my tens of millions figure.

The pernicious and long lasting devastation of this Self Perpetuating Global Drug War Holocaust is easily discernible. It works like compound interest. Over the term of its destruction, tens of millions of otherwise peaceful, law abiding citizens, with jobs, supporting families (avg 3.5 children each) are ripped out of society, thrown into the Drug War self perpetuating criminal making machine, their families are destroyed, their assets are depleted in their defense or outright confiscated if they have anything more than bare subsistence to begin with, they gain the dubious distinction of a felony record which virtually eliminates them from the possibility of ever obtaining work that pays enough to support a family (those that still have a family that is) or in many cases, even supporting themselves above the utter poverty level. At this point, whatever skills they may have had before incarceration are useless. During their unusually long stay in prison, due to mandatory minimums, they survived with "real" criminals long enough to have earned a PhD in "real" crime techniques. Their "respect" for society and government no longer exists after being subjected to this Orwellian nightmare. They are in pure survival mode. Coincidentaly, the Crime Business is booming. They have positions to fill just like any other business and their prime labor pool isn't Manpower. Success in this field can be extremely lucrative, and counter to popular opinion, most crime goes unsolved and therefore does pay.

The cruel efficiency of this Drug War Sorrow Machine is geometric. Once the primary victim is branded into the system the chance for re-entry is extremely high (www.November.org). According to Adam Wallinsky, a prominent Police State Prison Industrial Complex Consultant and Trainer, (Center for Research on Institutions and Social Policy -- centered in the Prohibition Cartel haven, Scarsdale, NY) the next greatest predictor (after recidivism) for future criminal activity is whether your parent was jailed. So, the horrible irony is the collateral victims of the initial human rights assault, the children, will stand a 5 times greater chance (www.November.org) of becoming the fodder for this incessant beast, as will their children and their children's children...

The Drug War is de facto torturing and enslaving generations of the kindest, gentlest people on the face of the earth. We use illicit drugs, mostly natural gifts from god, to enhance the fabric of our lives. To use the only things we can afford or that work to help us bear insufferable pain or to cushion the downward spiral towards an inevitable and ignoble death, hurts no one. To use those things to alleviate the cold harshness of an impoverished or otherwise desolate life, hurts no one. To increase the depth of colors, the vibrancy of music, that we can dance and sing and feel more intense joy and love, or to expand our consciousness and spirituality to better understand the quandary of life or get closer to god, these things harm no one.

This abomination must stop. It should be obvious no one is going to do it for us, so it's up to us to stop it ourselves... any way we can.

Good for you! Really! I suspect most of the elders here no longer buy drugs... which is good. I'm trying to instill all the others with the fervor such a cause necessitates. I can only hope they are not so numb as to allow such tragedy to be passed on to their progeny. Like the thing says... we have to do something.

Grow your own bro, it's free, and the weed is cystal covered, kind, 2 hitter shit, and its yours!!! You'll never have to mess around with dealers again, and you'll be proud you produced the best weed you've ever smoked. Not hard to do either. Get some cheap seeds from a seed bank, and a good light, and that will be the last money you'll ever spend on weed, except for some fertilizer and soil once in a while.

All I can say, is www.overgrow.com

www.cannabisculture.com is good too.

overgrow could be compared to the shroomery, and cannabis culture could be compared to mycotopia, both with forums, both with very experienced experts. But one of them you have to see through all the bullshit. But, I wouldn't recommend any books, like growing mushrooms, it's all available FREE. Just do your research FIRST. I must say though, growing mushrooms, is MUCH easier, and less time consuming, than growing good herb properly.

Good Luck!!

TO: concerned U.S. citizens

FROM: Chris Hammond, J.D., director of government relations

DATE: December 10, 2001

RE: DEA's new hemp regulations will expand its war on U.S. citizens

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The Marijuana Policy Project typically does not involve itself in
hemp-related issues, primarily because people are almost never
arrested and imprisoned for hemp law violations.

Unfortunately, the DEA's new hemp regulations could change this,
threatening literally millions of Americans with arrest simply for
possessing food products that contain non-psychoactive hemp seeds or
hemp seed oil. We urge you to take action immediately by visiting
http://www.SaveHemp.org

The DEA is claiming that trace amounts of THC in hemp could interfere
with drug-testing, alleging that people who test positive for
marijuana could claim that it was really the consumption of hemp
products that caused a positive urine test. (THC is the primary active
ingredient in marijuana. While some -- but not all -- hemp products
contain trace amounts of THC, there is no evidence that the
consumption of hemp products causes a "false positive" reading for
marijuana in drug tests.) Unfortunately, the DEA is using this
justification to ban many hemp products, making it a federal crime to
consume, possess, distribute, or sell non-psychoactive hemp products
that contain trace amounts -- even just a few molecules -- of THC.

People who are found guilty of such hemp crimes face federal prison
time -- even a five-year mandatory minimum prison sentence if they
possess 220 pounds of hemp food, as many hemp food distributors and
health food stores do.

Instead of proposing a rule on hemp that would be subject to public
hearings and debate, the DEA has resorted to the devious strategy of
bringing its hemp ban in through the backdoor, thus avoiding the
democratic process entirely. By claiming to be "interpreting" current
law instead of proposing a new rule, the DEA is attempting to protect
its ban on hemp from public challenge.

We do not accept the DEA's premise that its rule is merely an
"interpretation" that isn't worthy of public comment. Please visit
http://www.SaveHemp.org to send a letter to your state and federal
legislators to alert them about the DEA's new war.

(You may have sent letters to Congress last year when the rumors about
the DEA's plans first surfaced. If so, it is still important for you
to contact your elected officials now, as they need to be encouraged
to take action now to oppose the DEA's new regulations. Please visit
http://www.SaveHemp.org today!)

======================================================================

SUMMARY OF DEA's WAR ON HEMP

* The DEA has "interpreted" existing federal law to mean that hemp
foods that contain trace amounts of THC have been illegal since
1970. Anyone possessing such hemp food products is now subject to
federal prosecution and imprisonment.

* Hemp personal care products can only be consumed and produced at
one's own risk, since the DEA says it can arrest someone for using
hemp shampoo and then leave it to the individual to prove that the
product does not cause any THC to "enter the human body."

* Hemp paper, rope, and similar products will remain legal.

======================================================================

WAR ON HEMP and WAR ON MARIJUANA

The DEA is only able to justify its war on hemp because marijuana is
prohibited. If marijuana were legally regulated, then the DEA would
not be able to claim that hemp products that contain THC are illegal.

the war on all marijuana users -- please join MPP and/or donate at

It seems that every time we turn around, a little nick here, a little slice there, and slowly, our rights are being taken away. They dont go after big chunks, because of the uproar. They only take bits enough to make some uncomfortable, until its ajusted to and forgotten, before going after another little bit.
Totally unrelated to this, is Texas going after exotic cat ownership. There are litterally thousands of endangered species of cats, that will most likely be slaughtered, all because a bunch of politicians are too chicken shit to say, it is a constitutional right to own, or keep these. Rather than make up a solid book of rules to follow for ownership, they are choosing to outright ban, and eliminate. I wonder who is going to be putting these animals down, and if we will see this on tv.
