Bad People: An Infographic

“Good people don’t smoke marijuana.”
– Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-AL, Trump AG nominee

So, roughly speaking, that’d be maybe 60 million people in at least half the states in the country that voted for the decriminalization or legalization of cannabis for recreational and/or medical use? Wow, that’s a whole lot of bad people.

From the latest at dcmj.org:

Donald Trump has tapped one of the biggest prohibitionists in Congress to be the Attorney General of the United States: Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions. Earlier this year the Alabama Senator said “good people don’t smoke marijuana,” and while we don’t know yet if he’ll respect states rights (or DC’s rights since we are not a state) or if he’ll do what John Ashcroft did as George W. Bush’s Attorney General: raid lawful cannabis grows, raid lawful dispensaries, and even go so far as crack down on paraphernalia vendors. Let’s not forget why Tommy Chong went to jail and why history may repeat itself if we don’t act NOW!

Police vs. Cannabis: an Infographic

Ignore the anti-legalization shrieking and propaganda, and consider this little factoid: Police have murdered 765 people in the US this year – so far. Meanwhile, absolutely 0 – count ‘em, ZERO – people worldwide have died as a direct result of smoking cannabis through all of recorded history.

That’s right, smoking cannabis will not kill you – unless you do it in front of a moving bus. See you in DC on September 24!

Return Of The Choom

By mike flugennockWednesday - August 24th, 2016Categories: Health Care, liberty, smoke-ins

Inspired by a scene from Return Of The Jedi in which Han Solo is frozen in carbonite in Jabba’s lair, this poster announces a new round of cannabis legalization protest in Washington, DC and the White House on September 24, and calls on the DEA to “release the #Choom” — to deschedule cannabis and free all prisoners being held for marijuana “crimes”.

Needless to say, there’s a lot of discontent boiling in the cannabis activist community about the DEA dragging its feet and stringing everybody along for months before finally blowing us off and refusing to remove cannabis from its “Schedule 1″ list, alongside heroin. Much of the criticism is also directed at President Sparkle Pony, who claimed he would let science dictate policy and not politics, but has consistently chosen to support the failed Drug War policies which have their roots in the Nixon Administration. (The joke going around the DCMJ office is that the DEA has Obama “frozen, like Han Solo”; the term “choom” refers to Obama’s weed-smoking posse from school, nicknamed the “Choom Gang”.)
