End of Hempfest Linkfest

Marc Emery is expected to be sentenced to a 5-year prison term right here in Seattle on Monday, September 21. Rallies are planned in his support in a number of U.S. and Canadian cities on Saturday, September 19th.

NPR has the story of how an Orange County retirement community set up their medical marijuana coop.

A Clallam County man who was a medical marijuana provider won a victory in the state Court of Appeals when they overturned his conviction and ordered a retrial.

Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy isn’t buying that the Mexican government is upholding human rights in their (our) war on drugs.

The Economix blog at the New York Times breaks down the rates of illicit drug use from state-to-state. Washington is in the top ten, but still lags behind Montana and Alaska.

    You know what’s unfair? ‘Progressive’ Insurance. But not ‘Conservative’ Insurance.

    Marketplace of ideas, conservotards, if you get my drift.

    Your product has no sales appeal.

    I am so fucking wasted….. Heh!

    My friend got kicked out of HF for smoking pot! And got her pipe and weed confiscated by the cops, too! What’s up with that? I always thought cops looked the other way during the event.

    Didn’t Mark Emery (I refuse to spell his name the pretentious, incorrect way) dare LE to arrest him?

    If so, isn’t he getting his wish?

    In a bizarre way, yes. He has a bit of a martyr complex. But he’s right about how the laws are ridiculous. If he wants to be the Jesus for this cause, getting sacrificed to the cross, he’s certainly doing it the right way.

    If you smoke pot within a few feet of a cop, the cop will confiscate your stuff. Otherwise, they generally aren’t bothered and don’t go out of their way to bust people.

    FWIW

    The air at HF was pretty thick with MJ smoke, I wonder if any of the cops were … not high?

    The amount of pot around and the generosity of the folk was awesome. The only times I saw cops being at all aggressive was when some of the folks in the cattle ques trying to move around the crowd pusyhed over a fence. Even then, most of the toughness came from staff.

    I suspect anyone who got stopped for “possession” had found sone other way to piss of a cop.

    @10 That reminds me to write to Hank Haney. I figure a little voltage could go a long ways towards curing Charles Barkley’s golf swing hitch.

    A little voltage might do Klynical some good too. Show him a picture of a goat, then apply the voltage. How about it, Mr. Klynical, you up for some treatment?

    By my second post I was calling you out as a goatfucking perv. That sure rang your bell, didn’t it, KLOWN? You’ve been brainfucked ever since. Both you and that turd you dropped named Marvin.

    If adults choose to enjoy marijuana in their homes, then it’s their business. The government and its law enforcement people have nothing to do with it. It’s the same as enjoying an adult beverage in one’s home: none of the government’s business!
