This URL is dedicated to the proposition that cannabis should be restored to its traditional role as an agricultural and horticultural crop like any other beneficial plant, that the active strains should be treated like any other herbal medicine, and that people who consume cannabis have all the same human rights and deserve  respect and treatment in society equal to anyone else.

This version is a temporary restoration of the site, which was recently maliciously hacked. Unfortunately, some data that took years to develop, such as parts of the Drug War Memorial, have been lost, perhaps permanently. The restoration process will take some time.

    i noticed a lot of the really pivotal links were broken. hmmm wonder who did that. anyway, I was just presuming you knew but wanted to let you know they werent working anyway. i really wanted to read the “Legalize, tax and regulate cannabis”, but the link is broken. just fyi. (Editor’s note: Thanks, we’ve been trying to fix the links. please empty your cache, reload the page, check again and let us know if it is still a problem.)

    i honestly don’t know how the government could be so greedy they’d destroy so many people’s lives.

        Hammering The Clubs
        It’s not about good players and bad players as far as medical marijuana dispensaries are concerned. The Feds are on a war of attrition in which they plan to slowly and quietly wipe out all the clubs with the least amount of public notice. Everyone should get behind Americans for Safe Access to stop the federal assault.

  3. cheapnorth says:

    Obama should just cut the crap and fulfill his promise to let states handle the medical marijuana issue, and while he’s at it he should drop his support for nuclear power, offshore oil drilling and strip mining. Unfortunately those things would all require his being honest and ethical, so I’m not so convinced he’ll ever do it.

    • I agree Obama should just cut the crap and fulfill his promise to let states handle the medical marijuana issue, and while he’s at it he should drop his support for nuclear power, offshore oil drilling and strip mining. It tough to say whats going to come next.

  4. discountbracele says:

    It’s not just Obama; every one of the Republican candidates is a hypocritical scum bucket except for Ron Paul. They are too busy having gay sex to stand up for freedom or democracy. We’re probably stuck voting for Obama, despite his lying ways.

  5. doc27 says:

    So what does that leave us, just voter initiatives? That won’t solve the federal problem and it won’t work in 35 states that don’t let voters decide on laws. Plus the news media is determined to spout a bunch of spurious lies, glamorous misconceptions and elaborate hoaxes designed to turn voters off and discourage them from voting for liberty. It’s like the NRA — all for the second amendment, but not if it’s somebody else’s guns, like medical marijuana patients.

  6. louboutinknee says:

    The problem is that only one person can order the DEA to do its job and take marijuana out of schedule one, and that is the President of the USA. It doesn’t take congress or — god forbid — the US Supreme Crooks, I mean Court. The DEA is part of the Dept of “Justice” and they all work for the President. Obama is singularly in charge of this and he’s a work of crap, so we’re back in the same pit: Our elected officials don’t give a damn about what the People want. And with the big corporations — Pharma, oil, petrochemical, insurance, medical services, etc., etc., all buying up every candidate for high office, this is going to be a long row to hoe. We need an honest president, and at this point, that’s exactly what we don’t have. Not that we ever used to have one, but it’s what we need. Fact is that Jimmy Carter was our best president in the past half century, but nobody recognizes that fact because the CIA worked with Iran to make sure he didn’t get re-elected. Who knows what slimy stuff they have in their pocket to keep Obama from being re-elected, and who knows if he’ll be any better next time around. He hasn’t done anything to make it seem like he will. Take it on faith? Faith in politicians? LOL.

  7. cheapnorth says:

    The problem is that as long as the tyranny of the DEA and the Feds tromples on our States Rights and personal liberties, voter referenda won’t be enough. Plus a lot of the states let the legislatures change voter initiatives, so the same corrupt pack of political hacks just comes back and overrides the will of the voters. Happened in Alaska, Oregon and Arizona, just to name three. The change has to be federal, and that will signal the death knell of prohibition around the world. Most countries have been forced to ban cannabis by the US through the UN. The change has to happen in DC.

  8. louboutinknee says:

    Well, my Bible says that God gave man every green herb bearing seed after its kind to be consumed and used. I think we all need to pray every night that these politicians get some horrible disease that only marijuana can help them endure it. Remember how bad Rhenquist was on the issue, then he got cancer and next thing you know he’s in the minority of the Gonzalez v Raich decision and voting to let the states legalize medical use. So join me every night in prayer that Obama, Judges Roberts and all the other Supremes, and all the Republican candidates come down with cancer. Even if they don’t see the light, maybe they will all die off and let the next generation that does believe in legalization come to power. Young people understand the issue, they just don’t vote and that pisses me off to no end.

  9. cheapnorth says:

    The Drug War is its own false religion, and if you tell the truth about marijuana, that it is one of the most useful plants ever known, the Feds put you on trial as a heretic. Sobriety is a new false god. Let people live their own lives, like the Declaration of Independence says.

  10. discountbracele says:

    As far as I’m concerned, the dopers who voted against Prop 19 and get busted just get what they deserve. There’s a reason they can make so much money when they get away with it: Because people lose a lot of money when they get caught. Dumb asses want pot illegal, let them pay the piper.

  11. yangy says:

    Screw the Feds. I dare them to come after me. I double-dare them.

  12. cheapnorth says:

    
    Praise of God for the gift of cannabis is the greatest prayer, as done when one smokes the holy herb as a sacrament of Thanksgiving. Medical marijuana collectives are a kind of a group prayer to the greatness of God who heals us through miracles and the mundane, such as the humble cannabis hemp plant. Praise Jah. Pray for the liberation of cannabis. Pray for the fall of the DEA, that not one stone shall be left upon another and that the Lord and his army of angels may vanquish Satan’s vanguard, the DEA, to hell where those who participate in its orgies of hatred and abuse may burn forever. Pray to God that our leaders may open their minds and hearts or die deaths of pain and ignomy. Pray that our people, the ganja users, may find their salvation and rule the Earth. Thus it should be and thus it will be. The humble shall rise, and the arrogant (Satan, DEA, IRS, etc.) shall be cast down into the pit of pain. Thank God. Praise his gifts. Smoke Ganja.

  13. louboutinknee says:

    Narcs are satan’s whores, and snitches are the purest evil. That’s what hell is for.

  14. cheapnorth says:

    Spammers are like narcs without the guns and badges. They belong in hell, too.

  15. cheapnorth says:

    Spammers are the scourge of the Internet. I don’t know how those guys can look themselves in the mirror, but scum rises to the top of the cesspool.

  16. pink puffer says:

    Hopefully Ron Paul will get elected and end this madness. One thing for sure, if he runs as an independent on a platform of legalizing weed, I will skip both the GOP and Obama and vote for someone who understands Liberty, and that is Ron Paul. Of course I’m very stoned right now, just was out trimming the buds in my garage garden. Sure smells good. Can’t wait to put them outside. Can’t wait to be a free person again, either.

  17. Tom says:

    I’m a spammer, and I think the DEA are worse than we spammers are. After all, we don’t kick in people’s doors with flack jackets and automatic weaponry, taking away property and destroying lives like DEA does. We don’t pervert science or subvert the democratic processes like DEA does. All we do is waste a lot of people’s time as we demonstrate how meaningless and shallow our own lives are while trying to make a few bucks on click through internet marketing, and occasionally to steal people’s identities. But we don’t put anyone behind bars and some of what we do is marginally legal, so don’t list us down anywhere near as low as the DEA. More like a lamprey or some sort of leach maybe, but not as bad as the Feds.

  18. cheapshot says:

    Tel-Evangelist Pat Robertson is criticizing ‘liberals’ for the massive incarceration of peaceful personal drug users. While it’s true that the amount of arrests continues to go up under the Democrats, it appears to ste from two issues, 1) Democrats dedicate so much energy to proving they are not really liberal that they often vote against their own interests, much like gay Republicans vote against gay rights to hide their sexual foibles, 2) the police-state nature of the USA, where many politicians are blackmailed by law enforcement over either A) hidden scandals that will be exposed unless they support prohibition or B) threats of getting the law-enforcement lobby geared up to destroy them in an upcoming election. These two tactics have crippled the Democrats. Their failure to embrace marijuana legalization means they are unable to keep young voters engaged because the Democrats are clearly part of the corporate-prohibition cartel running the US and won’t do the one thing that young voters most desire, reform the marijuana laws.

  19. discountbraces says:

    Rick Santorum makes Jesus want to puke. I grow marijuana and I’m not afraid to say so, and Santorum will go to hell for his sinful bigotry, as Jesus said, hypocrisy is the greatest sin, and all the Republicans except Ron Paul are right in there, damned for eternity. But they still have time to do a lot of harm here on earth, unfortunately. They can’t die soon enough for me.

  20. discobrats says:

    Yes, the so-labeled ‘liberals’ have failed to do anything decent or honest about ending prohibition, but it is because the reactionary corporate / police state mechanisms have perverted them into being basically servants of the prison-industrial complex. That’s why this issue is not a liberal v conservative issue and why liberal Democrat Barney Frank and ultra-conservative Republican Ron Paul can agree on ending the Drug War. They are among the few members of Congress who are not owned outright by the Drug War lobby. So Robertson should be railing about both Dems and Republicans for this fiasco, as both are to blame. But electing Obama certainly made things worse, not better for medical marijuana, so to that extent having an incompetent conservative like Bush could be better than having a self-loathing ‘liberal’ like Obama working against his own political interests as well as the best interests of society. His mouth says one thing and his politics are the exact opposite. Really, it’s a shame he had to be the first Black president. It’s rather an embarassment — Black Americans are worse off now than before he was elected; more in prison, more denied college benefits, and the empoverished getting fewer benefits. Well, Obama gave us change alright. He changed into Bush.

  21. cheapnorth says:

    It seems to me that people who don’t smoke marijuana are the ones who are paranoid, otherwise it would already be legal. Safer than alcohol, safer than tobacco, safer than sugar, safer than potatoes or water (look up the findings of fact by DEA Administrative Law Judge Francis Young, 1988), etc. If Obama really believes marijuana should be illegal and people’s lives should be destroyed over it, he would resign and sign himself up for three years in prison or so to show that he believes this is the appropriate penalty for what he did when he was younger. You can bet your future that he won’t do that because OBAMA KNOWS POT SHOULD BE LEGAL, he’s just too much of a sell-out to do the right thing. But that’s the story of his entire administration, they know what’s right but they still do wrong. How politics does pervert the process. I grow pot at my house, let them come and get me.

  22. discountbrocolli says:

    The Feds and DEA are raiding Oaksterdam, the heart of the cannabis community in the East Bay. This is the ultimate Consitutional betrayal of democracy, going after Richard Lee after his funding of Prop 19, the 2010 effort to legalize marijuana in California. Now Obama is taking the path of Putin in Russia. And yet I’m growing pot in my garage, and they leave me alone. But I’m not political, so maybe that’s the key, Obama is only going after legitimate medical marijuana providers who are in compliance with state law, not the underground marketeers. Kind of a subsidy for the criminal distribution networks.

  23. tbracele says:

    Those fucking bastard pigs who raided Oaksterdam should all burn in hell. God damn the narcs. I hope every one of them gets incurable cancer and rots from within the way they have rotted away at democracy in America. I’m so mad that I could spit.

  24. countbackwards says:

    Look, I’m a fucking narc myself, and why should Americans think that they have a voice in their future? The future is bureaucrats telling people what to do, and Fox News telling people who they voted for. I don’t have any sympathy for those sick people who use medical marijuana. If they were rich they could afford insurance, it’s their own faults they don’t have it. I’m a narc, I get overtime pay, good insurance and a pension. I eat your tax dollars, get it. Your job is to feed my bloated ass. I am a narc, and I hate freedom, I hate democracy, if I could fly a missile into your home I would do so. I am narc, hear me roar. But don’t call me names, or you’ll hurt my feelings, and that isn’t nice. I am a pathetic, sick, depraved, corrupt little narc. Hear me roar, Oaksterdam.

  25. discountbracele says:

    I wish the feds would come in and bust me. I’d love to fight that out in court, look the jury in the eye and say “God created marijuana, I grow it, and the First Amendment protects me for using it and associating with other people who do the same.” Since jurors cannot be punished for their vote to acquit, and the government always lies about marijuana, anyone can reject the government’s case against anyone for marijuana and vote “not guilty” in good conscience. I’m going to try to get onto Richard Lee of Oaksterdam fame’s jury if he gets indicted, and I’ll sure as hell hang that jury. Legalize now.

  26. brazil says:

    I wouldn’t be so fast to wish the feds would raid me like the last person who posted, because they are god-awful scum buckets who have no human decency or respect for God, country or Americans. It’s like hoping the Nazis find out you’re Jewish; might make yhou feel tough for a little while, but once the fascist (by definition, a corporate-controlled government) boot is on your throat it’s too late to change your mind. I just hope the American voters throw out as many of these bastards as possible, especially the repugnants.

  27. brokinknee says:

    What’s up with Obama? As a teenager he used to grab joints out of other people’s hands and as President he’s f#&$ed the medical marijuana community big time, feeding them the big lie that the feds would respect state laws to lure people out in the open, and then go after everyone who tried to go legitimate, even Richard Lee who funded Prop 19 to bring the issue to a vote in California. I know it’s really Senators Boxer and Feinstein who are behind the whole thing, but they are both drug war whores, and you would think that Obama could see that he’s shooting himself in the foot by going after state-legal medical marijuana. How stupid is he?

  28. lobotome says:

    Obama really is blowing it if he wants to get re-elected, but maybe he’s looking for some soft corporate gig with lots of money come January. His actions as president have been mostly good for corporate banks and insurance companies, bad for coastal zones that will now be drilled for oil, bad for anything near a nuclear facility more of which will be opening soon, bad for the Great Plains north that are going to be stripmined for shale oil, and bad for medical marijuana and cannabis reformers. His current campaign theme is “Romney will be even worse,” but we thought nobody could be worse than Bush, and yet Obama has done about as much harm to progressive causes in his four years as Bush did in eight, so that argument is not as moving as he might think, and if people stay home on election day, it won’t be the people who want to vote him out of office.

  29. discobrat says:

    Well, you’re at least right that it’s Boxer and Feinstein who got the federal prosecutors appointed by Obama, which is why prosecutor Melinda Haag (pronounced “hog” not “hag”) is able to get away with going after the San Francisco Bay Area dispensaries. Feinstein is a horror character, backing the invasion of Iraq and solidifying the police state in the U.S. I don’t know what Boxer’s problem is, she’s just got too much cop money coming into her campaign coffers or something along that line. They both have to go; they don’t represent California, they represent their political puppeteers. It’s disgusting.

    • Thank you for making the honest try to explain this. I feel very strong about it and wish to be informed more. If it’s OK, because you have extra knowledge, could you add more posts similar to this one with more information? It could be extremely helpful and helpful for me and my colleagues.

  30. disgusted says:

    But why are Feinstein and Boxer, Prosecutor Haag (pronounced like “hog”), etc. trying to bring down Obama in the first place? He represents all the same right wing corporate interests they do. Or do they see Romney as being even more pro-corporate so they just want to jump ship and let the Dems list even farther to the right? Seems like a very stupid political strategy to go after your political allies, which the cannabis patient community was for the Dems for the longest time, likewise the youth vote that is drawn to legalization, is there any logic behind the Dem’s efforts to disaffect the next generation of voters? It seems like Speaker Nancy Pelosi is the only democrat who has any idea of how to get people behind the party, and at this point she’s outgunned by the drug war lobby vis a vis the US Senate.

  31. Urjani Salvi says:

    I find it so encouraging that am not the only girl out there over the age of 20 who doesn’t know any of this! Time to learn about all of it, and maybe try some out before I let some bigot tell me that a plant can be bad. Hypocrisy, bad. Prison, bad. Prejudice, bad. War on people, bad. Plant? Good until proved otherwise, and that’s just what no one has ever been able to do, just assume cannabis is bad to make an “ASS of U and ME”.

  32. rodinknee says:

    No question that if Obama loses this election, he’s done it to himself by destroying the hope and enthusiasm of his 2008 backers by selling out on the economy (banks, petrol and insurance), environment (nukes and offshore oil drilling), cannabis (raiding medical users and providers), etc., etc. I know people who said he’s been good on two topics, gay rights (which Congress reformed and all he’s done is claim to have changed position on gay marriage, which he can’t do anything about), and the “Dream” scheme for immigrants who grew up in the U.S., to which I respond to all qualified immigrants, Do not sign up. That is exactly what he did to medical marijuana, told people it was safe to be public, then once their heads were above ground he went after patients and providers with more prosecutions in one year than Bush Jr did in 8 years! So he’s probably just saying he has compassion for qualified people so he can later have the INS round them up. Don’t be stupid, hide your heads. When Obama says he’s your friend, watch your back. But Romney will still probably be worse. What a shitty excuse for democracy. America gets what it deserves, apparently: Our farmlands are becoming deserts, our democracy is an oligarchy, our people have no safety nets, and we are the pariah of the world. Nice work, elected assholes and bureaucratic bastards. May you all rot in hell.

    But first, let’s legalize marijuana.

  33. hookah says:

    Everything said was very reasonable. However, what about
    this? suppose you were to write a awesome headline?

    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a title to maybe get folk’s attention?

    I mean Equal Rights 4 All | Equal Rights Are for Everybody is kinda vanilla. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post titles to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about everything’ve
    written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

    Nice domain with useful selective information. I didn’t have many search results about “marijuana” when I looked around for this and at this web site I have completely all the information i need! Thank you a 1000 times! -Earle

  40. You are so interesting! I do not believe I have read through anything like that before. So great to find another person with unique thoughts on this issue of the bigotry and discrimination that people face for using a god-given plant. As a Christian, I don’t understand why more christians don’t stand up for the word of God that “every green herb bearing seed after its kind” is good and a gift to mankind. To say otherwise is certainly a heresy and these church leaders will all face judgement for abandoning God’s word to promote man’s prejudice and the prison industrial complex. Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This site is something that’s needed on the internet, someone with a little originality! God bless you. You are doing God’s work here.

  41. This post is worth everyone’s attention. How can I find out more?

  42. Tayla says:

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts about marijuana. Regards

  43. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before. Too bad more seed sellers don’t step up to the plate and put in some of their profits to pay for legalization efforts.
