Im not longer listed as spam!

Yeah! I just logged in and checked my page and it only had the adult content warning :)

Now I can post to my hearts content! Which is good because my mind has been pregnant and swimming with thoughts.

Its also good because now I can post the interesting articles I read every day instead of censoring which ones I put up. In fact, after this post I am going to post one.

I dont know when it happened, but I have a LOT of web sites.

It started innocently enough with one yahoo mail account and a myspace page.

Somewhere down the lines its exploded into facebook, myyearbook, twitter, Digg, youtube, friendster, zenzu, and the other ones like rockyou, photobucket, ikeepbookmarks, snapfish, pogo, and other more well meaning cause related groups like the Global Coherence Initiative,, and 10 Million Clicks for Peace.

And there are many more (like my language learning sites etc.)

I am glad there are so many places for people to express themselves.

Guess thats it for now.

Peace & Love

They think Im a spammer :(

I just opened a blogspot account today and uploaded all my previous posts from myspace and twitter. 16 in all for now. Then I went to the main page and it said my page was gone and that my name was available for a blogspot account. I thought my account was deleted. Luckily later this afternoon I found out it wasnt but that it needs to be reviewed so that they can make sure I am not spam.

I hope this is a quick and easy process.

I was so excited to post blogs and find them months later. Before I was blogging to myspace, but if you have too many blogs the previously posted blogs disappear and no one can view them.

If anyone knows me, I am incredibly talkative and have a tremendous amount of energy. So it would be awesome to be able to write a blog whenever I would like to instead of censoring what I write about. That way, I can use this blogspot as an open journal.

I will probably still post to myspace, but I'll censor what I write there and only put the most important or valuable information up on the other sites.

Im glad its toward the end of the day. Its been busy.

I uploaded some videos to my youtube ( of the jumping pillow they had at the KOA in Fort Mill, NC. I also saved my pics from Carowinds to disc earlier today.

My little sister is coming over tonight. I am pickin up Aaron and then getting her and then getting Matt and going home.

Thats it for now.
Peace & Love ya'll ;)

Here is part of the eFax:

Dear President Obama and Legislators:

You want a "uniquely American solution" to the health care crisis. So do I. Fortunately, we already have a uniquely American solution. It works. It saves money. It's called Medicare. It's the most popular social program in history.

I want expanded and improved Medicare now. For me. For everybody. Just like in Rep. Conyers' bill, HR 676.

Health insurance is not the same as health care. Insurance is for accidents. Health care is not an accident. I want health CARE, not health insurance.

Insurance company flacks and high-paid lobbyists twist the truth about Medicare. It's not "socialized medicine." Medicare is publicly financed, privately delivered health CARE. I have heard the nonsense about "government bureaucrats practicing medicine." The insurance companies paid Harry and Louise to twist the truth in 1994 and spout half-baked "facts" to defeat the Clinton plan. That tactic won't fool me again.

Medicare works for Americans over 65. It will work even better for healthier younger people. Quit looking for a solution that gives the insurance companies more money. Use what works. Give Americans under 65 the same right that seniors have - the right to guaranteed affordable health care with free choice.

Medicare for me. Medicare For All. Everybody In, Nobody Out. Now.

Tell the President and Congress to Expand and Improve Medicare

Fill out the following form to send this letter and your comments as an electronic fax to the White House Office of Health Reform, Senator Edward Kennedy, Senator Max Baucus, Senator Chuck Grassley, Senator John D. Rockefeller, Representative Fortney H. "Pete" Stark.

Insurance companies do NOT belong in health care. Please sign petition if you agree.

Insurance companies do NOT belong in health care.

Check out the following petition and sign if you agree.

This is the first paragraph:

We want transparency in the creation of health policy.We oppose the secrecy that has recently been reported. We oppose forcing Americans to buy health insurance. This will not solve America's healthcare crisis. Forcing people to buy health insurance forces people to buy a defective product. Insurance companies don't carry a stethoscope or bandage a wound. Insurance companies make money when they DENY health care. Insurance companies don't belong in health care.

545 vs 300,000,000

545 vs 300,000,000



Charley Reese has been a journalist for 49 years.


By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does.

You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don't control monetary policy, theFederal Reserve Bank does.

100 senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash.

The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? Nancy Pelosi. She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility.

I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people.

When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the redIf the Army & Marines are in IRAQ , it's because they want them in IRAQ

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.

Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

They, and they alone, have the power.They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

Support The National Criminal Justice Act of 2009!

Hello to everyone reading these words :)

There are so many changes going on in our world right now, and many of them seem depressing. While I know this is a challenging period of time we are going through, I deeply believe we will over come these obstacles. Things are moving faster and faster. New events and information presents itself so quick that I have to limit what I put up on my myspace or else I would be blogging incredible articles every hour! So lately I have been attempting to focus on one particular item at a time, which as you can see from my blogs have pertained to the legalization of cannabis. I am completely confident that legalizing cannabis would greatly help our economy in so many ways, but i wont go into that now.

Todays blog came from Norml but its not about smoking. The links are active, so you just have to click on them to go to the pages they are talking about. You'll see what I mean in a moment.I understand there are many things going on in your life and I deeply appreciate you taking the time to read my blogs. Thank you. You mean a lot to me and I love you! :)

I have exciting information I will be posting up here soon about December 21, 2012. I have to ask permission from the web site before I post the transcripts, but hopefully I will be allowed to post it. If anyone has read anything from Gregg Braden, you will be very excited to know it is a phone interview with him discussing 2012 and cycles. I cant express to you how wonderful the interview was. I also have some wonderful web sites to share about the reality of money, and more importantly some on speading peace and love to our family here on planet earth. These are the types of sites that make me feel good knowing there are such caring souls here with us on this walk through life. I will post all that at a later time. But for now, here is some action we can take to help make a difference in our world:

Support The National Criminal Justice Act of 2009!

Congressmen Jim Webb (D-VA) and Arlen Specter (R-PA), along with fifteen co-sponsors, have introduced legislation in the US Senate to critically evaluate America's drugs and prisons policies. The bill, Senate Bill 714, the National Criminal Justice Commission Act of 2009, is now before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

As introduced, the proposal would establish a blue-ribbon commission to "undertake a comprehensive review of the criminal justice system; make findings related to current Federal and State criminal justice policies and practices; and make reform recommendations for the President, Congress, and State governments to improve public safety, cost-effectiveness, overall prison administration, and fairness in the implementation of the Nation's criminal justice system."

Specifically, the Commission will examine "current drug policy and its impact on incarceration, crime and violence, sentencing, and reentry programs, [including] an analysis of the general availability of drugs in our society, the impact and effectiveness of current policies on reducing that availability and on the incidence of crime, and in the case of criminal offenders, the availability of drug treatment programs before, during, and after incarceration."

Writing this past weekend in Parade Magazine, Sen. Webb stated: "Drug offenders, most of them passive users or minor dealers, are swamping our prisons. ... Justice statistics ... show that 47.5% of all the drug arrests in our country in 2007 were for marijuana offenses.""America's criminal justice system has deteriorated to the point that it is a national disgrace. Its irregularities and inequities cut against the notion that we are a society founded on fundamental fairness. ... It is incumbent on our national leadership to find a way to fix our prison system."

Senate Bill 714 seeks to re-evaluate America's multi-decade long 'do drugs, do time' mentality. Please take time today to urge your senator to support Senate Bill 714. If your senator sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, then it is especially important that he or she hears from you.

For your convenience, a prewritten letter will be e-mailed to your member of Congress when you visit here:

After you have written your senator, please take a moment to write or call Sen. Webb and thank him for raising this important issue.

You may contact him here.

Thank you for assisting NORML's federal law reform efforts. Sincerely, The NORML Team

President Obama: What Is So Funny About Taxing And Regulating Marijuana?

I am very disappointed with Obama and his total and complete lack of respect for us, the people.
Obama pledged "to open up the White House to the American people." I'm one of the tens of millions of Americans who believe that cannabis should be legally regulated like alcohol. I'm also one of the tens of thousands of Americans who voted to make this subject the most popular question online at Presidential Town Hall. I'm disappointed to learn that he believes that my voice doesn't really matter.

Go to

Under President Obama: What Is So Funny About Taxing And Regulating Marijuana? Update Update Update is a paragraph with a link where you can send an email or a typed letter to President Obama. Lets the flood the White House with response so they can not avoid this issue.
We ARE the people. The government is supposed to reflect our decisions and opinions. We need to stand strong on the issues that are important. This IS Important.

This is not a laughing matter Mr. President.


Legalizing cannabis would not only save us money in expenditures like court and prison costs, but it would provide a major boost to the economy through taxes. It would literally make thousands upon thousands of Americans small business owners over night and provide jobs for many more.

Just look at what California is modestly anticipating. Without taking into consideration how much money would be saved in court and prison costs, California anticipates over $1.5 billion within the first year.

This is not just an issue about smoking pot.

In 1938 Popular Mechanics printed an article about marijuana called 'Billion Dollar Crop.' It was the first time a cash crop had a business potential to exceed a billion dollars. Popular Mechanics also talked about how there are over 25,000 uses for cannabis. I bet a lot of people did not realize how practical it is to legalize marijuana.

Check out this site to see just a couple of the many, many uses:

In a time where people are concerned with job security, let alone for the thousands attempting to find a job to begin with, just to make money to feed and house our families and afford medical bills, we should NOT laugh at the most viable solution we have in front of us.

Please help me support RE-INTRODUCE HR 5843 in the 111th Congress! A FED BILL to Allow

Please help me support RE-INTRODUCE HR 5843 in the 111th Congress! A FED BILL to Allow Responsible Adults to use Cannabis Come join my cause:

You will be able to recruit friends, raise money, and add a profile badge to show your support! Check this out ya'll! Every time people find a moment to say what they want done with this country~ the Number ONE response is Legalize Cannabis!!

Just look at California- they project (when the votes come in and it is legalized) within the first year they will have over $1 Billion dollars for the state (An economic analysis by California NORML estimates that a legal, statewide retail market for cannabis could generate additional revenues totaling some $12 to $18 billion dollars per year.); and that is a modest estimate considering if we are not adding people to our jail systems- which some speculate would project approximately over $50 BILLION dollars in ONE year!

Amazing huh?..(Legalization of cannabis is currently the number one cause on Causes, and it was the number one item on change. org AND change. gov. Also worth checking out: MPP on youtube. It is the 10th most suscribed to channel on youtube- MPP= Marijuana Policy Project, and you can follow them on twitter: http:..//twitter. com/..MarijuanaPolicy) ps If you havnt checked it out yet:

California: Assemblyman Introduces Measure To Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol


Assemblyman Introduces Measure To Regulate Marijuana Like AlcoholProposal Will Raise Over $1.3 Billion Per Year, State's Tax Collection Agency Says Bill Is The First Of Its Kind Since California Outlawed Cannabis In 1913!

San Francisco: State Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco) introduced legislation this week to legalize and regulate the commercial production and sale of cannabis for adults age 21 or over.

The proposal – Assembly Bill 390: The Marijuana Control, Regulation and Education Act – is the first bill ever to be introduced in the California legislature that seeks to tax and control the sale of cannabis.

Ammiano introduced AB 390 at a press conference Monday. Joining the assemblyman in support of the measure were Betty Yee, Chairwoman of the California Board of Equalization (Taxation), Oakland City Council member Rebecca Kaplan, Orange County Superior Court Judge James P. Gray (retired), and Dale Gieringer, Coordinator of California NORML, which provided legislative text and financial analysis for the bill.

"With the state in the midst of an historic economic crisis, the move toward regulating and taxing marijuana is simply common sense," Ammiano said. "This legislation would generate much needed revenue for the state, restrict access to only those over 21, end the environmental damage to our public lands from illicit crops, and improve public safety by redirecting law enforcement efforts to more serious crimes. California has the opportunity to be the first state in the nation to enact a smart, responsible public policy for the control and regulation of marijuana." Local news anchors from CBS, ABC, NBC, and PBS television covered the press conference. National stories regarding Ammiano's bill have appeared in USA Today, as well as on Air America and CNN.

As introduced, AB 390 would raise over $1.3 billion in annual revenue by taxing the retail production and sale of marijuana, according to financial estimates provided by the California Board of Equalization. An economic analysis by California NORML estimates that a legal, statewide retail market for cannabis could generate additional revenues totaling some $12 to $18 billion dollars per year.

The noncommercial cultivation of marijuana for personal use – defined as ten plants or fewer – would not be subject to taxation under the proposal. In addition, AB 390 would not alter existing legislation on the use of medicinal cannabis, nor would it impose new taxes or sanctions on the medical cultivation of cannabis.

A recent Zogby poll of 1,053 likely voters, commissioned by California NORML and Oaksterdam University, reported that nearly six out of ten respondents on the west coast favor taxing and legally regulating cannabis like alcohol."

This bill is a winning proposition for California taxpayers," Gieringer said. "It's time that California stops wasting resources trying to enforce marijuana prohibition, and instead realizes the tax benefits derived from a legal, regulated cannabis market."

For more information, please contact Dale Gieringer, California NORML Coordinator, at (415) 563-5858, or Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director, at: Additional information on AB 390, as well as contact information for the California Assembly, is available at:

Below is a sample script you can follow.

"Hello, my name is ____________.While campaigning for the office of the President, Barack Obama promised that he would halt the DEA raids of state-authorized providers of medical marijuana in the 13 states that have legalized the drug's use. You announced on C-SPAN:

What the President said during the campaign is now American policy. Thank you for taking this common sense and compassionate stance. According to a new Zogby, 72 percent of Americans believe that the U.S. government should stop interfering with state medical marijuana laws.

I thank you for supporting the will of the people and the health and welfare of seriously ill patients."

Thank you assisting NORML's federal marijuana law reform efforts.

Marijuana: The Simple, Logical Benefits of Legalization

Kudos to Jason Mraz for posting a blog with the link for this article!Marijuana:

The Simple, Logical Benefits of LegalizationThe fact that Marijuana is still illegal in the United States is a farse! And there are more then enough good reasons to legalize Cannabis that dont take a rocket scientist to figure out. This article will highlight this reasons:

August 16, 2006 by Richard Sepulveda

Marijuana is the most recreationally used illegal drug in the United States. It has been estimated that literally millions of otherwise law abiding Americans use the drug to get "high". Still there are millions of others that use the drug to ease their suffering from ailments like:

Insomnia, Cancer, Aids, or chronic aches and pains. While it is true some states have legalized Marijuana for medicinal purposes on the federal level Marijuana remains illegal to: possess, cultivate, import, sell or consume.

Thus doctors that could prescribe it to their patients as a treatment are fearful to do so even though they reside in a state that has medicinally legalized. It is truely ridiculas that Marijuana should be illegal in a nation where Tabbacco kills thousands of people each year from lung cancer and Alcohol causes a majority of fatal car accidents and petty desputes. Especially considering that Marijuana is not as nearly harmful to the body as the negative advertising around it (payed for by alcohol and ciggarette companies by large) would lead someone to believe. In fact In a study deliberately covered up by the U.S. gov't until recently, The National Toxicology Program found no evidence that Marijuana causes cancer. In fact the study proved the exact opposite.

Animals that were exposed to THC (the ancronym that stands for the active chemical in Marijuana also known as Tetrahydrocannabinol) showed less of a risk of getting cancer then those that weren't. Study after study has shown that Marijuana actually decreases a persons risk of getting cancer and that smoking Marijuana does not increase a persons risk of getting any of the cancers associated with smoking. So besides the fact that the drug may actually fight cancer why else should we legalize marijuana? Now I will give you some common sense reasons for legalization:


Legalizing Marijuana would create a new multi-billion dollar industry in the United States with a substance that can be taxed by the gov't thereby generating more money to fund gov't programs and create more gov't jobs.The currently labor suffering midwest would be saved by Marijuana processing factories requiring large amount of labor creating thousands of new jobs for middle america.

Shipping commerce from middle America to the big cities and their ports for exporting and importing marijuana would increase dramatically.

The increased trade with marijuana producing nations would help to stabalize their struggeling third world economies. This would also help to curve illegal immagration to the states from major marijuana producing nations like Mexico by creating a new mexican industry fresh with new jobs. Lowing incentive for illegal immagrants to cross the border in search of work.

Small businesses that sell marijuana would see increased profits which they have been needing since many former ciggarette smokers are now quitting.

Alcohol and Tabbacco companies would be forced to push their products harder thereby dumping millions of dollars more into advertising.

Televised anti-marijuana ads would be a thing of the past making room for other commercials to advertise their products.

Marijuana can grow almost anywhere thus there is little danger of a weak crop and falling profitsNot to mention that Economists at large have thrown their favor behind legalization.


With marijuana users no longer being jailed for possession lots of room would be opened up in our already overcrowded prison system for more hardened offenders such as: murderers, rapists, child molesters and other violent criminals.The Judicial system would no longer be burdened by having to trial cases involving marijuana.The police will be able to allocate more resources to solving more violent crimes.

Since marijuana could be purchased at any drug store after being legalized, violent crimes such as: robbery, drug warfare, contamination of drugs by other substances such as: LSD, PCP and Cocaine could quickly become a thing of the past.

MEDICAL REASONS:Marijuana has been proven on more then one occasion to not cause cancer unlike its legal counterparts tobbacco and alcohol.

Patients suffering from a host of disorders and diseases such as: Cancer, Aids, Chronic pain and insomnia would have easy access to a pain reliever.

The relaxing effects of marijuana use could prevent tension and stress that cause sore muscles and or aggitation and high blood pressure

We can plainly see that marijuana legalizations benefits are boundless I could go one listing for days but until Americans wake up and realize that the true crime surrounding marijuana is the cornering of the market by campaign contributions from Alcohol and Tabbacco companies thereby denying the rest of us the: Jobs, Money, Health and pleasure from legalizing marijuana.

American Drug War Economics

I stumbled upon this video and thought I would pass it on.

Interesting information, including who funds the "Partnership for a Drug Free America." (The tobacco and alcohol industry is the answer for those impatient like me. They spend millions of dollars to reinforce the distinction between legal drugs and illegal drugs...)

The video is 6 minutes long. The embedded code isnt showing up on this blog so I am removing it and adding a link to the video:

Oh No! Look out!! Its Marijuanna!!!

Wow. I just posted a blog yesterday (January 6, 2009) about voting on my myspace at on my I didnt overly think about it. It was a good idea that I wanted to help support but I have a lot going on in life (I'll post a blog on it sometime in the near future).

I have the same routine every morning once I get to my office. Check my office emails and do what work needs to be done, and then I check my personal emails starting with myspace and then yahoo and then myyearbook. No one replied to the myspace blog which is pretty normal- I get lots of views on the blogs but not many comments which is cool. I feel appreciated just knowing people read my blog. So I was a bit surprised when I checked myyearbook page to find almost over 3 pages of comments on that blog. So this morning I prepared another blog for myyearbook and decided to share part of it on myspace to see if anyone had anything positive to add to the discussion:

I couldnt help but find some of the replying comments pretty funny~ Especially since it was a short blog about voting for a Department of Peace and it just mentioned other things to check out including a topic on legalization of marijuana (along with others including repealing the Patriot act etc). Yet somehow it sparked some fighting comments about the evils of marijuana.

(You see why I thought those comments were funny, right?! lol It was a blog about voting for peace and yet there was an argument about marijuana...)
Now that the can of worms has been opened, I guess I can comment a few words on the subject. I've studied the subject matter for years. Its interesting how people assume that just because you are for the legalization of the substance, that you are a lazy, irresponsible, hippie pot hot.

How come people don't go out on the streets protesting alcohol? My sister almost died because of a drunk driver. I have had friends die because of drunk drivers. I have had friends beaten by their lover under the influence of beer. And I dont care to think about the others- because there are too many personal situations that involve the negative side effects of alcohol and I understand the law of attraction.

I don't know anyone who has beat their wife after smoking weed. They usually sit down, eat and then watch TV. Or like many musicians I know who go to their room and play the guitar, piano, fiddle etc. or listen to music. Many artists I know sit down and draw the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen after smoking weed. The positive stories outweigh the negative.

The truth of the matter is that it was legal in this country before. It was not only legal but made MADATORY for farmers to grow!!

Thanks to propaganda the truth is often left alone. Humans have been using marijuana for centuries- for more than just medical purposes.

Did you know marijuana is the earliest known woven fabric which began to be used as a textile in the 8th millennium BC?

The United States first law issued in regards to marijuana was enacted in 1619 in the colony of Jamestown where it ordered all farmers to grow cannabis. In 1631 Massachusetts followed and then Connecticut in 1632. From 1331 until the early 1800's marijuana was even recognized as legal tender- mainly to encourage farmers to grow more.

In the early ages of transportation the ships used cannabis-hemp for fuel.

All the sails and rigging on all ships were made from cannabis-hemp due to the fact that cannabis was known to be highly resistant to salt and rot. Cannabis-hemp was once so significant and crucial to the navy that King Henry VIII made it a compulsory crop to safeguard supplies for making sails and rope. The USS Constitution used over 60 tons of hemp in her.

The vast majority of the world's fiber, fabric, medicine, paper, incense and lighting oil was made from cannabis. America's famous flag Old Glory consisted entirely of cannabis.

Early American settlers knew from experience that cannabis-hemp was softer and warmer than cotton, and had three times the tensile strength making it more durable than cotton.

Benjamin Franklin started one of Americas first paper mills using cannabis- NOT tree pulp. The revolutionary newspapers and pamphlets like Common Sense, the Declaration of Independence and many others would not have been published if they had to procure their paper from England . Until 1883 80-90% of all paper in the world was made from cannabis including bibles, books, maps, money and newspapers.

Marijuana is also widely accepted in the medical field and has been used by the Chinese for over 5000 years. Numerous published studies suggest that marijuana has medical value in treating patients with serious illnesses such as AIDS, glaucoma, cancer, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and chronic pain. In 1999, the Institute of Medicine, in the most comprehensive study of medical marijuana's efficacy to date, concluded, "Nausea, appetite loss, pain and anxiety . . . all can be mitigated by marijuana." Allowing patients legal access to medical marijuana has been discussed by numerous organizations, including the AIDS Action Council, American Bar Association, American Public Health Association, California Medical Association, National Association of Attorneys General, and several state nurses associations.

Henry Ford, inventor of the Ford automobile, recognized the utility of the hemp plant. He constructed a car of resin stiffened hemp fiber, and even ran the car on ethanol made from hemp. Ford knew that hemp could produce vast economic resources if widely cultivated. Ford's optimistic appraisal of cellulose and crop based ethyl alcohol fuel can be read in several ways. First, it can be seen as an oblique jab at a competitor. General Motors had come to considerable grief the summer of 1925 over another octane boosting fuel called tetra-ethyl lead, and government officials had been quietly in touch with Ford engineers about alternatives to leaded gasoline additives.

Curious about what cannabis can do for our country?

Check it out:

You don't have to drink alcohol because it is legal, and you don't have to smoke weed because it is legal. It is a choice you make as an individual. There are laws that help make drinking alcohol a responsibility and there should be rules to go with marijuana. Obviously there should be an age limit. Kids do not need tobacco, alcohol or marijuana. And if people are not supposed to drink and drive, it would be beneficial not to smoke and drive.

Its one of those things I find funny. The thought that if weed was legal there would be no rules or regulations and it would be pandemonium. OF COURSE there should be rules and regulations, AND the government can make money from the taxation! It would free up space in the prisons, which everyone knows are overcrowded from non-violent crimes including marijuana possession and selling. Wow, I guess I could go on for a while, but its your turn to talk about it. If there is enough of a discussion I will write another blog with interesting history on the subject.
Thank you for listening.

I wish only the best for everyone! Even the haters need love, and so i love them too.

Peace ya'll & Keep smiling.

P.S. Happy New Year everyone! I love you all!

What The BLEEP Do We Know?

Have you heard about this movie called What the Bleep do we know?

'WHAT THE $*! DO WE KNOW?!' is a radical departure from convention. It demands a freedom of view and greatness of thought so far unknown, indeed, not even dreamed of since Copernicus.
It's a documentary. It's a story. It's mind-blowing special effects. This film plunges you into a world where quantum uncertainty is demonstrated - where neurological processes, and perceptual shifts are engaged and lived by its protagonist - where everything is alive, and reality is changed by every thought."

Any comments?

(The movie passed the $10 million mark at the box office several months ago and has sold more than a million DVD copies. As word of the film spread, pastors rented out theaters, meditation teachers took students to see the film and some churches held classes on the movie's philosophy. The Rev. James Trapp of Miami 's Unity on the Bay, who saw the film last summer in Barcelona at the 2004 World Parliament of Religions, rented out a screening room at Regal Cinema on Miami Beach and took 150 congregants to see the film when it opened last fall.)
