Lies and deception

Two Associated Press articles (Sept. 27,
“Pot ballot measure makes odd California bedfellows” and “High cost of cancer drugs
spurs new debate”) reveal a lack of understanding or knowledge about the cannabis
It is all about making more money than any farmer could dream of and who, the farmer, the state or the pharmaceutical company, is going to gain from its high demand if made legal.
The historic false claim that “marijuana” smoking is dangerous has always been a smokescreen for the real issue: It’s a cure for disease, a whole protein food, a strong fiber, and a clean-burning fuel that grows anywhere. To the corporate world this is a serious threat well known by the government.
Concerning an expensive cancer treatment, the evidence is pouring in that the essential oil from the cannabis flower (hash oil) shrinks tumors. This evidence first surfaced in 1974 when the National Institute of Health, funded by the Nixon administration to discover if marijuana causes cancer, discovered it shrunk tumors instead. The study was suppressed by Nixon until recently. Now, numerous studies have revealed it’s true. So, why are 18,000 New Yorkers dying every year from cancer and why isn’t our government protecting us? Could it be money?
How can the pharmaceutical industry allow we the people to grow cannabis in our own backyard when more than 80 percent of its profits come from us needing its cancer treatments? And how can the state let us grow our own cannabis when it could balance its budget if it just pretended it’s a threat to public health and safety a little while longer?
If the state can continue threatening to put people in jail for growing it by keeping it listed as a dangerous Schedule I drug, then the state can get a piece of the action, not to mention the court making money from fines, and police getting gains from raids, etc. (Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Revelation 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. [Saints those police officers that arrest, judges and prosecuters that convict and those parole officers that force people to take a urine test because they are just doing their job (collect a paycheck) will have no more excuse before God than those nazi soldiers that said they were just following orders.] Galatians 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, [See: Raids of local pot dispensaries spur concern about law enforcement intent - Like most of the 80-odd marijuana dispensaries that have taken root in San Jose in the past year, the New Age Healing Collective advertises a lengthy menu of high-grade pot, pot concentrates and pot-infused treats for its ill patients.
But narcotics agents say the cannabis club on South Bascom Avenue was an illegal pot-slinging operation masquerading behind its medicinal mission and strip-mall storefront. Earlier this week, the Mercury News has learned, a regional drug task force with a search warrant raided the operation, seized about 40 pounds of marijuana and effectively shut the place down.
Drug enforcement officials acknowledged the raid was the first of its kind in the area.
"He wasn't providing care or benefits to patients," said Bob Cooke, who leads the Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement in the South Bay, of the head of the pot collective. "We believe he is nothing more than a glorified pot dealer."
Cooke did not identify the suspect, whose homes in Livermore also were searched, but the Mercury News has learned his name is Jonathan Joel Mitchell, 30. Mitchell, who has not been charged, could not be reached for comment. The Santa Clara County District Attorney is reviewing the case.
Geoff Rawlings, Mitchell's lawyer, said he was concerned that the narcotics agents were targeting his client by misinterpreting the murky web of state law, guidelines and case precedents that dictate how medicinal marijuana should be distributed.
Rawlings said: "There is a fundamental disconnect between what they understand the law to be and what the law is."
Similar raids have gone on in other parts of California, but this is the second unprecedented law enforcement action within a week against alleged illegality within the burgeoning, local medicinal marijuana movement.][Saints See: Raided medical marijuana dispensaries targeted due to alleged profits - A group of five medical marijuana dispensaries, including one in Covina, raided by authorities Wednesday were targeted because the operators were allegedly turning a profit from the establishments in violation of state medical marijuana laws.
Eleven people were arrested in connection with the operation, which took place Wednesday morning in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties.
The Alternative Medicine Collective of Covina, 20050 E. Arrow Highway, Suite B, was forced to close its doors after a multi-agency task force seized its products, along with four other dispensaries in the four-county operation, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said. No one at the Covina dispensary was arrested.
Under California's Proposition 215, also known as the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, medical marijuana dispensaries are only allowed to operate as non-profits, Capt. Ralph Ornelas of the Sheriff's Narcotics Bureau said.
"This organization was definitely working outside the law," he said.
"Our investigation proved they were charging people and making a profit out of it," Ornelas said. "You're not supposed to make a profit."
Authorities also searched an Alhambra home in the 1600 block of Curtis Avenue, though no evidence was seized, the captain said.
Erik Andresen, 35, of Seal Beach was arrested as the "primary suspect" in the case against the five dispensaries, Ornelas said.
He was booked on suspicion of cultivation of marijuana and another marijuana-related offense at the sheriff's Norwalk Station, according to a jailer. He was released Thursday after posting $100,000 bail.
Andresen said he serves as an advisor for the organization of patients involved and denied any wrongdoing.
"We are a group of patients who are together, collectively, to provide medicine for sick people," he said.
Andresen said the dispensaries did not make a profit.
"You're allowed to be reimbursed for your time," he said. He declined to say how much money he has received in compensation, but described it as "piddly."
"I don't own a home," he said.
Andresen added that the collectives generally give excess marijuana free of charge to their sickest patients.
"We don't turn a profit because be give away any extra proceeds," he said.][Saints See: Medical Marijuana Patient Sentenced to 60 Days in Jail - A 22-year-old medical marijuana patient was sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years probation for “unlawful manufacture and possession of marijuana.”
Joshua Brewer was growing marijuana with two other medical marijuana cardholders at their residence. He was arrested on September 27, 2009 and accused of possessing “more usable cannabis than his marijuana card allowed.”
Brewer’s attorney claimed the judge did not instruct the jury about medical cannabis laws. Additionally, Brewer’s defense claimed that roughly half of the seized harvest was unusable marijuana.
Nonetheless, a jury found Brewer guilty of two felony drug charges. Local NORML members attended the sentencing in support of Brewer. The group is considering a federal civil rights lawsuit. End.] 1 Timothy 4:1 doctrines of devils; [Saints See: The war on drugs is a failure that no one minds stimulating - Spending huge sums of money and getting no results to justify the expense: That’s the relentless, and accurate, Republican critique of President Barack Obama’s efforts to revive the U.S. economy. But it also describes a policy staunchly supported by Republicans as well as Democrats decade after decade: the war on drugs.
When the government lays out hundreds of billions to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent only to see it hit 10 percent, the obvious implication is that the policy didn’t work. But when the government lays out tens of billions to reduce illicit drug use and finds that it has increased, the obvious implication is one that eludes almost every politician in America.
A few weeks ago, the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) published the latest chapter in a long-running horror tale. In 2009, it found, nearly 22 million Americans used illegal drugs — a 9-percent increase from the previous year and the highest rate since the survey began in 2002.
That happened even though federal, state and local authorities have been expanding enforcement efforts against drugs. Since 1981, Washington has gone from spending $1.5 billion a year to spending $17 billion a year.
How does the administration explain the jump in illegal activity? You guessed it: Our policies are way too permissive.
the rise in marijuana use, Gil Kerlikowske, head of the White House’s Office of National
Drug Control Policy, insisted that “all of the attention and the focus of calling
marijuana medicine has sent the absolute wrong message to our young people.”
What message does he mean? Presumably, that cannabis is not as destructive as commonly portrayed by ONDCP and others.] Revelation 22:2 the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Galatians 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. [Comment: The Government (BEAST) has no right to tax (tax the people for the right to use God's herb, a herb they did not create "thief") or force people to show a license to use a a natural herb that God has freely given us.] Revelation 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.)
Numerous people I have talked to, including legislative aides, seem to know that money is the only issue prolonging cannabis prohibition and all the problems that come with it, including police not knowing who to arrest and people dying of cancer. So, why does the press have such a hard time seeing this or writing about it? Politics, I know.
That all beings aid, the obvious answer to this questionable dilemma is to end the unwarranted unlawful prohibition which is based on lies and deception and let people have our cannabis plant back. After all, it is rightfully yours. And doesn’t this make cents? I mean sense. (Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat,)
