The War On Drugs

Women get abortions a lot more than men do. (Because it’s impossible for men to.)
Women also support the right to have an abortion more than men do.

Men smoke marijuana a lot more than women do.
Men also support the right to smoke marijuana more than women do.

So who’s laws are on who’s bodies, again?

There are more instances of marijuana use per year than abortions.
There are more men in jail for doing what they want with their body than there are women.

How about all the dicks on both sides of the aisle look over to the other side, then to the mirror, and see how similar you all are to your enemies? Stop telling other people what to do. It’s easy. You just… stop. Just… stop.

“Thanksgiving Prayer” by William S. Burroughs

Thanks for the wild turkey and
the passenger pigeons, destined
to be shit out through wholesome
American guts. (more…)

It’s quite interesting that prohibitoininsts in Michigan are fighting the proposed medical marijuana referendum by showing commercials on TV with “footage” of a child going to a medical marijuana dispensery, and “patients” (people on pot) assaulting an elderly woman.

If you haven’t seen the movie Reefer Madness, you really should, because they showed how smoking pot would cause you to kill people with your first use.

Nevermind the fact that the Michigan law DOESN’T EVEN ALLOW dispenseries OR children to use it.

Prohibition is only ever justified with specious logic. (more…)

  • WATER WARS: UN rejects access to water as basic human right — You have no right to live; you are a slave. “A hungry man is never free.” – Even truer for a thirsty man. They actually removed all references that recognized access to water as a human right from their resolution! Bottled water buyers have increased the potential profit so much that there are now likely corporate influences on global politics. The privatization of water has been one of the most important events to happen to us as a species in decades, is a much bigger deal than fighting over oil and energy, and is generally under-focused in the media. It’s only going to get worse. (tags: water rights UN)

WAR ON DRUGS: Federal marijuana decriminalization bill introduced — tell your congressman to support it here. Surveys tend to show that around half of Americans support decriminalization of marijuana. Since this is not a direct democracy, and you don’t get a vote, letting your congressman know what to do is the only way you will be represented. So speak up. Of course this wont make a real difference, as only 1% of marijuana arrests occur at the federal level. But federal penalties are draconian and extreme. (tags: marijuana Democrats BarneyFrank)

Since this is not a direct democracy, and you don’t get a vote, letting your congressman know what to do is the only way your opinion will be represented. So speak the fuck up. I did.

    MUSIC + PICTURES: – enter any bandname, and it plays random music by them, while slideshowing FlickR pictures tagged with the band name . This was awesome! !! It also works with “Futurama”! (tags: music pictures flickr ) (more…)

    [IMDB Link] First off, this was a movie seemingly produced by High Times magazine, not Hollywood. So it is definitely of lower quality. Less than what you would even expect from an “independent” movie (i.e., this was actually independent). When we first started watching it, I was like, “Oh no, what have we gotten into?” The IMDB rating is only 5.2! But stoner movies ALWAYS get rated low. But what if it’s accurate?!?!?!?! Fortunately, it wasn’t. (more…)

    D.C. stadium visitor forced to delete pictures (no, it was not Glen) “We have the authority to ask them to remove the picture from the camera.” (“ask” could be the operative word in that statement) STAND UP FOR YOURSELF, people.

    TECHNOLOGY WAR: All cars in the last 2 years broadcast their identity in plaintext on RF spectrums. In other words, they could, for example, create a bomb that only explodes when a specific car passes it, without any sort of camera attached. NOT GOOD. And sold to us as being “for your protection”, of course. How long until it’s illegal to disable these?

    If the War On Drugs is so important that we have the highest prison population in the planet because of it — then why are the police allowed to be above the law? Cop+Wife stole pot and cocaine from evidence room. Not charged. Think you wouldn’t be charged if you stole this from an evidence room? Why do they get off free? With great power comes more responsibility, not less! Remember — this is the cop that baked the weed up into brownies with his wife, ate them, then called 911 saying, “I think we’re dying. Time is going really, really slow.” It was all over the news. Of COURSE they’re not charged! Now he can continue to be a cop elsewhere! And really, I think all drugs should be legalized — but the fact of the matter is, it is a crime that they themselves arrest people for, but somehow they themselves are exempt at the same time. It’s quite easy to to not question the validity of enforcing a bad law, when that law is not forced upon you.

    UNDERLY-HARSH PUNISHEMNTS, VIDEO INCLUDED: How much jail time do you think you would get for pushing a cop down some stairs? Officer Fernando Trinidad is scum. If it’s the other way around, however, cops can push you down some stairs, and, get this–only lose 8 hours vacation time. Your tax dollars at work to abuse you.! They actually charged her w/battery on a law enforcement officer, but they were of course dropped. It’s a typical police tactic to charge someone they abuse with battery, so that they will go away and not complain about the brutality in exchange for charges being dropped. But of course, once dropped, these people usually sue (and they should — cops lie when they make deals all the time, and would like to put you in jail, if they decided their gut told them that was there you belonged).

    911: AOL News site bans links, because this corporation doesn’t like other news sites talking about 911 conspiracies Real nice. AOL customers pay for the privilege of being censored? Or, if it’s free — the “value added” by using it is that you don’t get alternate viewpoints. Just fucking dandy. Anyway, this is old news, but PrisonPlanet just heard about it… probably because nobody uses AOL services :) ZING!

    Penelope Cruz to engage in steamy lesbian sex scene with Scarlett Johansson in Woody Allen(YUCK)’s upcoming “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”. At least, according to this fansite. This is the best girl-on-girl news since the (confirmed by both) tryst between Jenny McCarthy and Jenna Jameson!

    TSA Forces Woman To Remove Nipple Rings For Flight — ***NOT*** POLICY. Just an example of how the everyday american loses their rights. You don’t fight TSA, or they can taser you to death and have you arrested. So what happens when they ask you to do something they have no legal power to do, and you need to go somewhere? You apply a pair of pliers to your own nipples, that’s what.

    WAR ON DRUGS: New York Governor Admits Past Cocaine, Marijuana Use, Few Are Bothered. If someone can be president or governor after doing the stuff — they certainly shouldn’t be arrested for doing the stuff.

    CENSORSHIP/RELIGION: Network Solutions takes down website for hosting anti-Islam movies — free speech online is controlled by only a few corporations, and they just want everyone to get along so that we keep buying stuff. When your domain name holder can pull your account at any time, you don’t truly have the freedom to express what you want. Avoid NetworkSolutions, and avoid GoDaddy. Go elsewhere for your needs; these guys are not YOUR friend, not even when you PAY them.  But you can still watch it on Google Video HERE.

    Speaking of religion… SCIENTOLOGY IS A DANGEROUS, CRIMINAL CULT: Read about Gareth Cales and Sean Carasov — it looks like Scientologists poisoned Sean Carasov’s cat, then had him arrested for “threats” which have not been disclosed, much like Keith Hanson. Ultimately, on the protest day, Gareth had to have the police intervene to keep them from being followed into the subway. This is scary stuff. All Scientologist leaders should contract cancer and die. The world would be a much better place. All hail ANONYMOUS and XENU! 6AUP602!

    WAR ON DRUGS HURTS CHILDREN (VIDEO SEGMENT): Douchebag U.S. Prisons Deny Man Temporary Release So Dying Daughter Can Have Last Wish – To Hug Her Father. Um, what about a conjugal visit? Man is in jail on a drug conviction. Remember: Drugs are victimless crimes. It probably hurt the child a lot more to lose a father, than how much “society” was hurt by the father’s actions. Yet here, a child has become a victim to a compassionless system; the American Justice system — which imprisons the most non-violent people of any system in the planet. Laws are not Morals, and in my book, non-violent criminals are, for the most part political prisoners.

    Speaking of children…Child tasered to death after Mom makes him return to store he works at to face discipline for stealing Hot Pockets …. I guess before tasers, they would’ve shot him in the head? Of course, if you shoot someone unarmed, you tend to get sued. But if you TASER them & they die from “exicited delirium”, then a cop gets to blame the victim, avert the lawsuit, AND get away with cowardly murder. This is the 3rd taser death this week, and at least the 2nd time in a week I’ve read about a mother losing her son because she called 911. This is why I propose a softer “811” manned by people who actually risk their lives by not shooting anyone they perceive as a threat. It would basically be handled like the stereotypical people in white who bring you to the insane asylum.

    What would Homer Simpson look like in real life? Like this. And it’s creepy. Blu-ray cracked! Of course BluRay movies were already being pirated. Anyway — Download “AnyDVD HD” while you still can. Netflix will send BluRay discs, y’know. Meanwhile, the FBI is creating links that will make you get raided if you click them — better not have Firefox prefetch on! Maye I should change every page on my blog to redirect to one of those links, huh? Yeah, it’s pretty fucking stupid: FBI Posts Fake Child Porn Hyperlinks. Also, related to the failed war on drugs: LSD and Psilocybin research begin again — after 35 years. First Cocaine Lab found in Brazil. Grow your own pot in the Czech Republic – they just descriminalized it. (more…) course the victims were black, and Tarika an innocent, unarmed bystander — now dead. The baby will always have a missing finger to remind him of what our society did to his mother, all over some marijuana and crack, which in this case were far less harmful than the authorities. IIRC, she was running upstairs after hearing the raid begin, but that didn’t stop police from firing bullets in the right direction to kill her (from another floor?) anyway! A fucking misdemeanor? becomes the first country in the world to incarcerate over 1% of its population in prison (during my lifetime, anyway). Please don’t tell me this is the land of the free. There is a higher percentage of freeer people in every other country on the planet! Granted, you wont see me moving to Rwanda or Darfur or Iraq anytime soon — but the fact remains that no other country on the planet imprisons as high of a percentage of their prisoners as us. And we’ve almost doubled THAT in the last 10 years! Also, I believe we are the 2nd-highest executor (China beats us by a landslide). Just keep this in mind when they ask your kid to pledge allegiance to a flag that is supposed to allegedly stand for the land of the free.

    Do you know why curvaceous women produce smart kids? Interesting study of 16,000 women — turns out those with hourglass figures are actually smarter, and more likely to have smarter children. I guess big boobs don’t automatically mean ditzy :) Latest Anti-Pot Quack Science: ‘Marijuana Makes Your Teeth Fall Out’. A sensible article dispelling many of the “Reefer Madness”-type articles that have come out in the last few months. The War On Drugs creates so much bad science; just a few decades ago they said smoking pot would make men grow breasts!
    Pot + Curvy = this picture?

    Also, in the wake of smoking ban in bars, underground “Smokeasies” or “Smokehouses” start appearing. I’ve been to one in D.C…. (more…)

    WAR ON STUDENTS, ERR, DRUGS, ERR.. WHAT? What is this warring on again? By the way, the only reason he got off is a technicality. In other words, the state would have gladly pursued this to the next level, had the statute not been more narrowly worded. They wanted at a jail sentence for this kid. The spirit of the law is not always the letter of the law! Only in fucking Texas! And only against non-whites! This shit would never fly against a white christian kid. (If so, please point to the example!) You don’t test the limits of statues with white people. You test them with poor minority people, and if it succeeds in court, then you use them against white people. That’s how it works, and that’s most certainly how it works in Texas. (“Texas is the reason that the president’s dead!”)

    I had no clue Sangria was not legal to sell in Virginia. Your kidneys will thank you if you read the cola article. Any good CartoonNetwork fan should be pissed off at B.E.T.  Fuck Nato’s recommendation for a pre-emptive nuclear war — we don’t need your goddamn war!  Also, the link where you can look up your name and see how many people in Georgia have your name is pretty entertaining.  I think it’s absolutely hysterical that somewhere in Georgia is someone named Clinterical.
