the people HAVE spoken!
but our government DOESN'T GET IT!!
"In a related development,[Ed.: DUH, YA THINK???] the Drug Enforcement Administration yesterday
proposed a loosening of restrictions for the prescribing of Marinol, an approved drug that contains an active
ingredient in pot, the chemical THC. Marinol is currently listed as a Schedule II drug, which means it has a high
potential for abuse but may be medically effective. The proposal would downgrade it to a Schedule III drug,
placing it in a category with the painkiller codeine -- medically effective with a small possibility of abuse."

Meanwhile, regular old pot, cannabis, marijuana,
LANGUISHES alongside heroin and barbiturates as a
Schedule 1 (one)(that's right, you heard right, folks, ONE!)
drug...while the crappy pharmaceutical (read: $$$.$$)
derived from cannabis gets a FREE RIDE!
sheesh. come on America. get your shit together here!!!!!

ELECTORAL VICTORYS
FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA
in Oregon,Alaska, Arizona, Washington,
Colorado and Nevada!!!
"Supporters of these ballot measures say smoking marijuana
can ease pain, bring back appetite, reduce the eye pressure
of glaucoma, and lessen nausea from cancer chemotherapy.
'If we have limited jail space we ought to use it for people
who are really threats to public safety.' ''
It now appears to the serious researcher
of these matters that most Americans
not only strongly support allowing
her citizens to again utilize the
usefulness of the healing
value of the herb, Cannabis ,
but by even wider margins
REJECT the arcane and misguided
calls for harder and harsher
punishments for any citizen
who uses Cannabis for any reason .

~WHY HEMP IS STILL ILLEGAL~
"Why should we import a product in high
demand when we can grow it here?"

excerpt:
In rural Kentucky, advocating hemp can even imperil careers.
In tiny Simpsonville, a 5th grade agriculture teacher,
Donna Cockrel, is fighting to keep her job after advocating
that local farmers be allowed to resume growing hemp.
The town's past is so tied to the crop that one street is named Hemp Ridge.

Her problems came in May, when she invited actor
Woody Harrelson, a hemp advocate, to lecture students. The
visit by Harrelson -- who wore hemp pants, hat and shirt --
electrified the school. Later Cockrel thrust a sheath of pro-hemp
student essays into President Clinton's hand at a Louisville rally.

Simpsonville police complained to school officials that Cockrel
was leading students into drug use, and the officials tried to push
her out of her job.

"They said I'm advocating drugs, but I'm not," she said.
"I'm discussing a crop that's vital to our rural economy."

Shame, America! Shame!

another excerpt:
Andrew Weil, a University of Arizona medical college professor
and alternative medicine advocate, prescribes hemp oil to patients with
auto-immunity and skin diseases. He's also convinced by data suggesting
it can help protect against cancer.
The Clinton administration should rethink its assumptions and
grant Americans access to a healthful product, he said.

"It's one of the most useful plants humans ever discovered," Weil said.
"But we've denied ourselves use of it because of our [drug] obsession."

HUNGER GOT YOU???
TRY ZEN!
"The principle of mindfulness, which says
be aware of what's going on, allows
you to tolerate that feeling of hunger
or tolerate that feeling of desire,
so you are not always a slave
to your desires."

"We now have these powerful tools that
allow us to move genes into totally unrelated
species and create new forms of life that
have never been part of this evolutionary
scheme.  How they will interact, we just
don't know... Virtually every one of those
genes will be the intellectual property of a
life science company... The genetic common
should stay a common .  It should not be
reduced to commercial property.  It's the
legacy of the human race; and we also
have a responsibility to our fellow creatures.
This is not anyone's invention."
