Raychesta not a fan of victim-less crimes





This is a very tight video and track from Raychesta, who normally raps faster than Twista on his songs. The gist of the track is that he was harassed and detained with real criminals and violent offenders for a "victim-less" crime that he committed.
Again, the reason the jails are overcrowded and our court system is backed up is because people who smoke pot or are caught harming themselves, are bunched in with rapists, murderers, thieves, vandals and all sorts of goons who violated real property rights.

Basically, let people get high, drunk and crunk in peace.

Obama Crime Family hates your liberty!



This is the same bullshit from the last tyrannical administration. Thankfully, I keep reading of liberals who are already going sour on the Obama Crime Family. The dumb-fuck Republicans are finally screaming on the feds for their blatant socialism (where were their protests during the last 8 years?)

Obama officially shot down the idea of legalizing / decriminalizing Marijuana during hist town-hall meeting. Plus the feds raided a pot dispensary in violation of their earlier promise to back off and let the states handle this issue.

Don't let your "liberal" friends remain glass-eyed and mindlessly devoted to this current crop of criminals, spread the word on Barack Bush's continuing violations of our personal liberties!

Marijuana tops Obama's White House!


Wow!

As of Wednesday, March 25, 2009 at 9pm Eastern, the White House has been taking open questions from the public and the top 7 "budget" questions out of 7,302 questions after 300,000+ votes are all on the topic of legalizing/decriminalizing Marijuana. (Check out the actual screen shot!)

This will happen in our lifetimes after all. The depression will force the hand of the Feds into giving "we the people" the choice of regulating weed at the state level. We CAN'T AFFORD THE STUPID DRUG WAR ANY LONGER!

Its incredible how the people are flooding the Obama Crime Family with this issue to the point where they cannot ignore it any longer.

It's like I'm posting consecutive great news blog posts on Chico Town. Lets keep it up! Ask your own questions and vote on existing questions over at the white house open forum.

Good News from Obama!

Holy shit! I gotta post the good news for a change because ragging on Obama for being a Bush-cloned-suck-wad gets tiring.

The administration of the holy emperor is going show mercy on medical marijuana dispensaries who abide by their state laws.

But wait! Obama's thugs are saying that they will leave folks alone who follow their state laws in reference to a particular matter that the US Constitution does not explicitly address? Huh?

I think I heard of this concept before....

It's called the 10th Amendment of the Constitution and it says:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.


Should we be praising these rat-bastards for (semi-)following the constitution? It reminds me of a Chris Rock joke where he mentions folks who brag "I take care of my kids!" Chris Rock then replies "You're 'sposed to take care of your kids, what do you want a cookie?"

I guess we can give Obama a cookie... a medicinal weed cookie as a token of our appreciation for leaving peaceful plant-consumers alone! Still, lets enjoy this great news and hope for more to follow.

Legalizatrion of Marijuana still getting lots of press



This time it's Ron Paul championing the common sense approach to regulating drugs. Our dear emperor Obama admitted to smoking weed but wouldn't touch the issue with a ten foot pole. He's living proof that even weed smokers can become President of the United States. Now that the generation that actively used the most weed in their youth is running the world, I hope this economic depression will apply the final pressure they need to legalize and decriminalize marijuana.

Legalizing Marijuana is gaining momentum

From the Chicago Sun-Times we get the following editorial arguing for the legalization of marijuana. Here's a great quote explaining the economic benefit:

Marijuana, however undesirable some might view it, is not much, if any, different in its effects than alcohol and should be treated the same. And Ammiano has a point: A 2005 study endorsed by the late Milton Friedman and 530 other economists found legal regulation would save the nation $7.7 billion in enforcement costs and bring in up to $6.2 billion in taxes.

Beyond that are the issues of the terrible crime drug prohibition inflicts on mostly minority neighborhoods in big cities and the narco-terrorism raging in countries where criminals and poor people simply produce a product in huge demand in America.


Save lives, save money! It's simple as that. Spread the word and write a letter to your congress-critter so that the Feds can lay off this moronic prohibition of weed.

Disclosure: I don't smoke weed, I never have and I'd volunteer for a random piss test 365 days of the year to prove it. I don't have a dog in this fight for legalization, I'm just opposed to the government tyranny and disgusting waste in public funds for prohibiting a plant from being consumed. The silver lining in this depression would be the humane legalization of this drug.

The FDA would have banned Ancient Egyptian medics

So it turns out that the Egyptians invented modern medicine (not the Greeks), check out these prescriptions:

The medical documents, which were first discovered in the mid-19th century, showed that ancient Egyptian physicians treated wounds with honey, resins and metals known to be antimicrobial.

The team also discovered prescriptions for laxatives of castor oil and colocynth and bulk laxatives of figs and bran. Other references show that colic was treated with hyoscyamus, which is still used today, and that cumin and coriander were used as intestinal carminatives.

Further evidence showed that musculo-skeletal disorders were treated with rubefacients to stimulate blood flow and poultices to warm and soothe. They used celery and saffron for rheumatism, which are currently topics of pharmaceutical research, and pomegranate was used to eradicate tapeworms, a remedy that remained in clinical use until 50 years ago.

"Many of the ancient remedies we discovered survived into the 20th century and, indeed, some remain in use today, albeit that the active component is now produced synthetically," said Dr Campbell.

"Other ingredients endure and acacia is still used in cough remedies while aloes forms a basis to soothe and heal skin conditions


Its amazing that the ancient Egyptians were using this stuff over a century before the birth of Christ. As I type this I have honey on a few wounds and earlier this week I had to use castor oil because the over-the-counter prescription crap shit didn't work as well.

There are plenty of natural remedies that can cure us just well as the synthetic drugs that Big Pharma pumps out. The FDA is in bed with the Pharmaceutical companies to keep natural remedies under the rug and in some cases even banning cancer-curing nutrients!

50-50: Weed and Liquor video

Holy shit.. this is a good idea:

He claims to love the study of human behavior, and his best idea might be a little project called 50-50, in which he'll get 50 people in a room, have them drink booze till 4 a.m.—ambulance on site—and record the results. Then he'll replace the hooch with weed and do it all over again. Needless to say, the first night, full of fighting and flirting and puking, will probably make for better reality TV.


The idea is courtesy of Barry Cooper, the form narcotics officer turned anti-drug war advocate who is peddling his new DVD "Never Get Busted Again". Although giving out tips on how to fool drug warriors is fine by me but word on the street is that the ordering methods on his website make it difficult for an anonymous shopper to buy a copy. In this day and age you don't want the FEDS intercepting that kind of a transaction... then that's your ass.

Can't wait to see that 50/50 video. I'll gladly volunteer for the alcohol part!

War on Drugs: worse national policy since slavery



Ever since I discovered the group Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, I've been speaking about them to friends and family. Being former drug warriors themselves they are an important voice in correcting this horrible national policy. The video is incredible, especially the "institutional racism" part at the end. I've personally seen my fair share of this institutional racism at the hands of local police officers. Thank God we have law enforcement folks who are speaking out against this abuse of their power and trust. I hope you guys spread the word too.

President recommends Coca, and I do too.

From the BBC:
[Peruvian] President Alan Garcia said on Tuesday that coca leaves had many valuable uses, including giving relief from sore throats and colds.

Mr Garcia suggested the legal use of coca as a way of fighting cocaine production and trafficking.

Peru is the world's second largest producer of cocaine behind Colombia.

The coca plant has been used for centuries by Andean people for medicinal and ceremonial purposes, and has sacred status in some South American indigenous cultures.


It's as simple as that. I was in Colombia recently and had a chance to visit Expoartesanias, an indoor market/fair celebrating hand-made and cultural goods from around the country. To my surprise a few vendors sold products made from the Coca leaf including coca tea and coca cookies. I'm so glad I bought several boxes of the coca tea because during my stay in Colombia I was going to inevitably catch a cold or two venturing into the cooler climate high up in the mountains. Not only did the tea help with my sore throat but it opened me up to a tradition that is centuries old.

It's incredible how natural plants like coca and marijuana are demonized by our governments when laboratory-made drugs like Vicodin and Ritalin are openly promoted and recommended. Don't get me wrong, cocaine and crack are horrible substances, but lets remember that the indigenous people of the Andes weren't the ones who invented them... nor the ones creating the MARKET to PURCHASE them.

Now if only I could get some natural Coca Tea here in the states...

A little bit of this and a little bit of that...



Want to sniff cement and ammonia? That's your problem.

Want militarized police in ski-masks invading your home? That's every one's problem.

The War on Drugs is ineffective, expensive, and destructive. Here's another reason why!

By the way, check out this PDF with a detailed study on the failure of the "war on drugs" that also offers a logical and economically sound solution that does NOT involve prohibition.

Shitting on the "War on Drugs" is going mainstream!

TV and Media personalities want to END Prohibition too!



John Stossel, the "Burt Reynolds mustache"-having ass motherfucker from the Disney-owned, candy ass ABC News '20/20' pussy program recently spoke out against the "War on Drugs".


Walter Cronkite, the ol' skool pimp of news broadcasting, and well respected corporate news talking head who arguably sunk the Vietnam War when he spoke out against it... also recently spoke out against the "War on Drugs".


Bill Buckley, the conservative among conservatives, anti-liberal, Bush Sr. Presidential Medal of Freedom award-winning ass, Reagan buddy, slash CIA agent, slash conservative newspaper editor (National Review) and talking head... also spoke out on the failed "War on Drugs".


Arianna Huffington, founder of the popular liberal blog The Huffington Post, buddy of half of Hollywood (including the likes of Clooney), former California candidate for governor, and all around radio, news, and TV liberal talking head... also spoke out against the failed "War on Drugs".

Its catching on folks! Connect the dots and you'll see that ending prohibition is an issue that EVERYONE from all walks of life should support.

It's not just about weed-heads who want to get high, its about Americans with a conscience standing up for freedom and justice!

Read and see why the War on Drugs is fake!

Immortal Technique prepares the "Middle Passage"

The self-made political rhyme monster and former Emcee Battle champ from Harlem drops some info on his next project "The Middle Passage". Immortal Technique has no problem using the full power of Hip Hop's global reach to criticize the Bush Crime Family and society's problems. With over 70,000 albums sold independently, his 3rd album is gonna continue exposing so-called "controversial" topics such as the fake "war on drugs", 9/11 cover-ups, police brutality, the exploitation of Black and Latino people in 3rd world countries, fake emcees, and the greed of the music business.

This interview is on Break Down TV, a cool online Hip Hop channel that also features music videos between the segments of the interview.

Immortal Technique definitely has some great advice for the Hip Hop community on investing money, having the cojones to make hard-hitting music, and taking on controversial issues. With millions and millions of dollars generated by Hip Hop music, we should have a stronger progressive movement and even less kids on welfare... not Jacob the jeweler sitting on another set of chrome wheels! (Fuck Jacob the jeweler, feed the kids instead) Check out the interview and see for yourself.

Good Cops want to Legalize Drugs

First all, good cops do exist! Second of all, those who have been in the trenches of the "War on Drugs" have seen first hand how corrupt and immoral the entire thing is. Check out these quotes from this article:
"Let's be honest," Cole said. "The war on drugs has taken an incredible toll in terms of the loss of our civil liberties, particularly in terms of the Fourth Amendment, from property forfeiture laws that fund law enforcement agencies to warrantless searches. It's promoted institutionalized racism, and it's created a systemic level of corruption among law enforcement unheard of prior to its initiation."

...Statistics show that whites use more than 70 percent of all illegal drugs, blacks are sentenced to prison for drug crimes seven times more often than whites.

... In 2004 in the United States " with a higher percent of its population in prison than any country in the world" the incarceration rate for black males was 4,919 per 100,000 (compared to 726 overall).

Even considering the harm that drugs can cause, however, LEAP members believe that the war on drugs is even more harmful. Legalizing drugs, on the other hand, would take profits out of the hands of criminals and hugely reduce the need for people to commit crime to pay for drugs, they say.

"Don’t forget my favorite," Woolridge said. "If, as Bush said, drug money funds terrorists, [then] legalizing drugs would take half a billion dollars a day out of Afghanistan alone, much of which is going to al Qaeda to buy weapons to be used to kill our boys. We could eliminate that overnight."


It gets deeper, read it here to see more. The "War on Drugs" again proves to create corruption, racism, violations of civil rights, a huge waste of tax payer's dollars, etc, etc, and all that other good stuff.

Tell a friend, tell a Congressman, we need to end the War on Drugs for the sake of humanity, take a cop's word for it.

The "War on Drugs" is Fake!


Check out this new article on GNN.com written by Newtopia Magazine Editor-in-Cheif, Chalres Shaw, who incidentally was arrested for the possession of marijuana. We've said on Chico Town before that the war on drugs is biased and it unfairly targets minorities and poor communities, well this article spells it out completely with the facts to prove it. Check out these quotes:

... the U.S. government demonizes Blacks, other minorities, drug users, and poor people, and uses the drug trade as a pretext to justify a domestic war against them. In the "“War on Drugs"”, we claim to be fighting crime and drug use, but while the budget for the "“War on Drugs"” increases every year and the number of prisons and prisoners increase every year, the amount of drugs consumed and the number of drug users also increases every year.

... more than 40% of the 1,000 state prisons now in operation opened within the last 25 years, coinciding with the full scale launch of the "“War on Drugs."”

But maybe the most frightening fact is that, according to the U.S. Dept. of Justice, a nation with only 4.6% of the total world population has a full one-third of the world'’s prisoners, an estimated six million people, three million currently incarcerated in federal and state penitentiaries and county jails, and another roughly 3 million under "correctional supervision"” on house arrest, probation, or parole.


Honestly we need to decriminalize or legalize drugs and spend those millions building rehab clinics instead of prisons! Why are we jailing our own people for the sake of profits? Modern day slavery my friends, and the CIA (aka the Crack Importing Agency) flooded our streets with Cocaine in the 80's so that the FEDs can start this fake ass "war". Read the full article for more on how the "war on drugs" is full of shit. They even make a strong argument for legalizing drugs using the examples set by the prohibition of alcohol (or you can take the Libertarian's word for it).

Lets take our communities back and keep our families out of unnecessary prison sentences.

We need Peace in Colombia

Today the House of Representatives is debating over the infamous "Plan Colombia". Several Democrats, including Reps. Jim McGovern (D-Massachusetts), Betty McCollum (D-Minnesota) and Dennis Moore (D-Kansas), have introduced an amendment that will cut some of the funding that is adding more fuel to the fire of that 40-year-old civil war that's cost thousands and thousands of lives in Colombia.

He's a little secret for the suits in Washington DC... after 40 years of civil war in Colombia, the PEOPLE WANT PEACE! 80% of the 3.2 Billion dollars provided for Plan Colombia have been exclusively for military aid. And ummmm... how's the drug trade doing? No, we haven't dented the production and importation of Cocaine into the US enough to justify those 3.2 Billion dollars? What? It's not working? Of course it's not because these bastards* don't understand the plight of the Colombia people. (*You rotten trigger-happy, shoot-em-up, military industrial complex-ass bastards!)

Here are quotes from a new article in the LA Times regarding the results of Plan Colombia:

"The [U.N.] numbers are devastating," said Adam Isacson of the Center for International Policy, which has argued that eradication campaigns must be accompanied by large-scale development efforts that offer peasants alternative livelihoods.

"The spraying, when it isn't accompanied by any alternative development, doesn't seem to discourage [coca farmers] from trying again, because there just aren't a lot of other good choices out there," Isacson said.

Peasants have responded by planting even more coca, hiding it under trees and among other crops, and turning to varieties that produce a higher yield, the U.N. report said.

Plan Colombia began under the Clinton administration primarily to fight drugs. But after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the Bush administration has emphasized counter-terrorism and regional security.

While some conservatives wish to cut funding for Colombia, many Democrats want to spend less on its military and more on rural economic development. Democratic critics also wonder whether the U.S. has an exit strategy for Colombia.

Why not spend those billions on more rural economic development programs to give farmers a profitable alternative to growing cocaine. Here in the US the federal government subsidizes farmers all of the time to keep the prices of milk and other produce fixed. Lets give the people a real choice so that the drug trade can be eradicated from the inside out and the farmers can provide an honest living for their families. Colombians want peace and with the right aid they will achieve peace. The key word is "peace", ya hear that, you Yosemite Sam, gun-totin', military state-ass Nazi bastards in Washington DC!

It's not about killing the violent, it's about empowering the peaceful.

Puff puff... pass me some jail time

Check out this new article from the Washington Post that shows that law enforcement is clearly discriminating when it comes to drug arrests:
The focus of the drug war in the United States has shifted significantly over the past decade from hard drugs to marijuana, which now accounts for nearly half of all drug arrests nationwide, according to an analysis of federal crime statistics released yesterday.


Also:

The study ... found that arrests for marijuana account for nearly all of the increase in drug arrests seen during the 1990s. The report also found that one in four people in state prisons for marijuana offenses can be classified as a "low-level offender," and it estimated that $4 billion a year is spent on arresting and prosecuting marijuana crimes.

In addition, the study showed that although African Americans make up 14 percent of marijuana users generally, they account for nearly a third of all marijuana arrests.


No more chasing after the expensive drugs that only the elite can afford and consume. How about sticking it to druggie Rush Limbaugh instead of the nickel-bag tokin' folks from around the block?
