Political Cannabis

Recommended Posts

The federal government of the United States has declared war on Medical Cannabis dispensaries for unknown reasons. The excuses they have cited to date lack foundation. Indeed, there is no justification for their behavior besides political motivations or ignorance based fear.

The proper authority to cite when contacting Washington regarding this issue is


significant because the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution are part of the

Bill of Rights and therefore cannot themselves be amended (changed or modified).

The items in the Bill of Rights were considered sacrosanct by the Founding

Fathers and were therefore written in stone.


Amendment 10 - Powers of the States and People

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.


Since the power to regulate, prohibit, or control cannabis usage was 1) never

addressed directly or peripherally by the constitution; 2) was never delegated

to the federal government by the constitution; 3) nor was it prohibited from

the state by the constitution... --then and therefore the power to determine

the legal disposition of medical cannabis usage is CONSTITUTIONALLY reserved to

the STATES or to the PEOPLE. It is therefore UNconstitutional for the Federal

Government to disregard the wishes of the people, which was determined by a

VOTE, properly conducted, by the State of California, among others.

No matter whether or not one agrees with cannabis usage for medical reasons, the fact remains that the STATES are Constitutionally authorized to decide for themselves. The fact that the Federal Government is ignoring the Constitution on such a minor matter in the big scheme of things to the detriment of patients for whom it is NOT minor--OR FOR ANY REASON--is indicative of how far we have NOT come in reigning in their tentacles and chopping them off. Can you imagine the look of horror and outrage on the face, and in the words, of Thomas Paine or James Madison if they were alive today?

We all need to be vigilant on this. It is an outrage. It is an abuse of power. It is against our Constitution.

Cannabis has enemies:pharmaceutical,timber,cotton and artificial fabrics,alcohol, and fuel and lubricant industries,and of course (protein) feed/food production industries. Who is behind the plot against cannabis ?

===============================o======================== ??

When Renault tries to arrest Laszlo as arranged, Rick forces him at gunpoint to assist in their escape. At the last moment, Rick makes Ilsa board the plane to Lisbon with her husband, telling her she would regret it if she stayed, "Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life."

Major Strasser, tipped off by Renault, drives up alone. Rick shoots Strasser when he tries to intervene. When his men arrive, Renault pauses, then tells them to
