Cannabis is still considered a Schedule 1 drug by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). - - - - Marijuana Is Controversial and Barely Legal By Cathy Milne on July 18, 2015 -

Cannabis is still considered a Schedule 1 drug by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). To date, 23 states and The District of Columbia (Washington D.C.) have medical marijuana laws in place. Some states have legalized recreational pot usage. There are opinions on both sides–marijuana is controversial and barely legal.

The DEA is a division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and their drug classification rules state, “No prescriptions may be written for Schedule 1 substances.” Additionally, they may not be”available for clinical use.” Among the list of hard narcotics is Marijuana. The list also contains Heroin, LSD, Peyote, Ecstasy, Quaaludes, etc.

Since almost half of the U.S. has medical marijuana laws in place is the DOJ ignoring federal laws? The answer is, maybe. In an a recent article about this topic, the term “doublethink” was used. George Orwell coined the word and defined it as follows, “Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.” This word explains the government’s war on drugs and its distribution of legal joints for glaucoma patients.

Robert Randall, a resident of Washington D.C., was granted the right to use the drug for medical purposes by a Federal Judge in 1976. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was ordered to supply Randall with the drug. He was granted this because no other medication offered him relief for his glaucoma.

As a result of this ruling, the Compassionate Investigational New Drug Program (Compassionate IND) was established. The program is run by the Federal Government and the plant is grown at the University of Mississippi. From 1976 to 1992, this program ran as the law stated. The reversal was during the height AIDS epidemic when the public health authorities declared there was no scientific reason to continue. In other words, it was suspended in response to President G.W. Bush’s administrative push to “get tough on drugs.” Fortunately, the patients who were already on the program did not have to leave; they were “grandfathered in.”

Cannabis was legal and considered a medication in 1850. By the mid-1930s, opposition began to grow and 48 states passed laws to make it illegal because it was thought to be addictive. Then, the “Hippies” or “Flower Child” generation began to defy the anti-marijuana laws openly. In response, President Nixon declared a war on drugs in 1971. Once President Reagan was in office, First Lady Nancy Reagan launched the “Just Say No” anti-drug campaign. The movement was started in 1984, and two years later, President Reagan signed The Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986.

Proponents of medical marijuana, armed with the knowledge that the drug was considered a medication in 1850 and the Compassionate IND, began to fight for the right of the people to use pot for medicinal purposes. By 1998, four states had passed laws to allow medical marijuana to be used by patients; California passed the law in 1996. By 2014, 23 states and Washington D.C. also followed this path. Still, marijuana is considered controversial and barely legal, at least from a federal standpoint.

There has also been a movement to allow the recreational use of the drug. Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington State currently have laws in place legalizing recreational usage of cannabis. The recreational use laws vary from state to state. The federal laws are the exception. Federally, it is illegal to transport marijuana across state lines and it is illegal to mail the drug as well.

While the laws are changing, the U.S. government is still practicing its doublethink and there are those who question the fact that marijuana is safe. Concerns about addiction are a big argument against the legalization of marijuana. However, proponents of the drug argue that addiction to alcohol and tobacco do not keep them from being legal. Even today, with all of the new laws, marijuana is controversial and barely legal.

Cannabis Church Is Not Just Blowing Smoke [Video] By Cherese Jackson on July 5, 2015No Comment

The First Church of Cannabis is not just blowing smoke, but looking to spread love, peace, and joy. The church held its first service of communion on Wednesday, July 1 in Indiana. The gathering opened to a packed house inside and out. Neighborhood protestors lined the streets along with law enforcement as the congregants inside sang, shouted and heard words of encouragement.

The service was led by Ministers of Music, Love, and Education. The Minister of Music set the sanctuary on fire with Mary Jane, by the late Rick James, as people danced in the aisles and around the pews. Mary Jane is one of James’ earliest hits as a solo artist and is one of his most notable songs. It is not an ode to a sexy woman as many once thought, but a love song to marijuana.

I’m in love with Mary Jane she’s my main thing. She makes me feel all right, she makes my heart sing. And when I’m feeling low, she comes as no surprise. Turns me on with her love, takes me to paradise.

Although the service maintained the flow of a traditional worship service, it was anything but ordinary. The one component that was missing from the cannabis church experience was marijuana. The First Church of Cannabis did not intend on blowing smoke but spreading love during the first gathering. Prior to the first service, the city’s top law enforcement officials issued a warning to the First Church of Cannabis. It stated:

Anyone who smokes marijuana at the inaugural service next week will face criminal charges.

The warning came from Police Chief Rick Hite and Prosecutor Terry Curry. Both authoriti

The warning came from Police Chief Rick Hite and Prosecutor Terry Curry. Both authorities cautioned possible attendees by saying, “In addition to making arrests for anyone in possession of or in the presence of marijuana that is being used, they will also be on the lookout for impaired drivers.” Law enforcement said it could not ignore an event that has received such wide promotions across the news and social media outlets. Hite and Curry said it was upsetting knowing that they had to expend valuable manpower for this when there are many other more pressing needs for law enforcement resources.

In response to the warning, Bill Levin, founder of The First Church of Cannabis, decided to forgo smoking during the opening service. He quickly spread the word that cannabis would be prohibited in the first service due to the threats from law enforcement. He said:

The police department has waged a display of shameless misconceptions and voluntary ignorance. We will do our first service without the use of any cannabis. We will not be dragged into criminal court for their advantage. We will meet them in a civil court where the laws are clear about religious persecution. We do not start fights, we finish them! One Love!

The results of a study published in The Lancet support many of the church’s beliefs. According to results of the study, Cannabis is one of the most powerful healing plants on the planet. Other studies have allegedly made pseudoscientific attempts to indicate that people who use cannabis tend to experience psychological issues, social problems, and mental decline. However, the recent study seems to prove there is no evidence that marijuana use is directly linked with such problems.

Cannabis lovers agree that no plant has been condemned more than marijuana. They believe the government has taken upon itself to designate this living organism as an illegal substance. Marijuana acts as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective agent that has reportedly been found to reduce blood pressure, treat glaucoma, suppress cancer, alleviate pain and even inhibit HIV.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta, in a documentary titled Weed, explains why he changed his mind about the plant. Initially, Gupta was adamantly against the benefits suggested with cannabis, but he has since apologized. The CNN chief medical correspondent said the medical world in the United States has been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years. Gupta wrote an article and produced a documentary in hopes of setting the record straight about the healing plant so many rejected.

The First Church of Cannabis made its debut on Wednesday, July 1, 2015. Dozens of officers were positioned outside as members inside celebrated the joys of marijuana and easy living. The church service was held without any use of the illegal drug in order to avoid unnecessary interactions with law enforcement. Bill Levin and the congregants are praying that those who reject the benefits of marijuana and have waged a war against their assembly will replace the hate in their hearts with love, peace, and understanding.

NY Times: Obama, in Oklahoma, Takes Reform Message to the Prison Cell Block


The president is intent on improving life behind bars. To make his points, he became the first sitting president to pay a visit to a federal prison. With regard to this issue of excessive sentencing for non-violent drug offenders, we 'Law and Order' paleo-conservatives here at The Anti-New York Times are in total agreement with the bleeding heart libtards. Justice should always be tempered with mercy. The idea of taking a non-violent young man - who just needs a good strong kick in the rump and a solid year of boot camp with moral rehabilitation - and locking him up in the small cage of a larger madhouse is as cruel as it is counter-productive.

But as it is with all things Marxist, Obongo's new drive to grant amnesty to "non-violent" prisoners is not what it appears to be. Far from being fooled by the Big Zero's sudden outburst of compassion for such cases, we are alarmed by it.

The cunning and cold-hearted Demonoid Obongo surely wants something in return from these prisoners in exchange for releasing them.

The article quotes Obongo:

“We have a tendency sometimes to almost take for granted or think it’s normal that so many young people have been locked up. It’s not normal. It’s not what happens in other countries. What is normal is teenagers doing stupid things. What is normal is young people making mistakes....

When they describe their youth and their childhood, these are young people who made mistakes that aren’t that different than the mistakes I made and the mistakes that a lot of you guys made.”

To pacify those concerned about the possible release of violent felons, the Homo-In-Chief added the obligatory:

"There are people who need to be in prison, and I don’t have tolerance for violent criminals."

The unseen danger of this 'turn-em-loose' initiative lies in what it might grow into. Beyond the approximately 12,000 federal prisoners serving excessive sentences for drug crimes, there are much larger numbers of inmates in state and local prisons who, by the same standards, should also be liberated. That would add up to about 500,000 prisoners that could, theoretically, be turned loose if new sentencing guidelines are retroactively enacted by Obongo and the Republican't Congress.

Then what? What's wrong with a mass release of prisoners if they are non-violent, you ask? Well, there are several problems:

1. Obama wants to grant them "voting rights". Add another 500,000 Marxist Democrats to the voting rolls.

2. Given the sorry state of reh
