These Cannabusiness traitors must really think we are stupid. Why would we compromise for such a stupid solution when we could simply "grow our own" for free or for a fraction of this cost? And nowhere in the itinerary, for Nadleman's conference, is our right to "grow our own" explicitly addressed. Could it be because he has no intention of considering such an option?
Jack Herer is certainly one of the most respected activists within the Marijuana Re-Legalization movement. And he has made clear, again and again that Marijuana should be "untaxed, unregulated" and free for all of us to grow. He probably said it best in his September 12th speech at HempStalk in Oregon:
"I don't want to f**king give the United States government one f**king dollar of taxes. I think that they should go to f**king jail for getting you and me and 20 million people getting arrested for pot. It is the safest thing you can do in the universe. And that is what we are going to do in California. Okay? Come over to my booth, over there, and I will see you next time."
It is my hope that some of the activists, attending Nadleman's DPA convention will demand that he address the allegations contained within this article. But more importantly I hope they demand to know why DPA continues to do little or nothing to support unlimited, untaxed, unregulated "self cultivation" of Marijuana. It is the only viable way to destroy the Cartels, provide free medicine to the sick and poor. And it is the only way we can end the senseless "unreasonable searches and seizures," of our homes by DEA goon squads that fund their operations through the unlawful forfeiture of our plants and our financial assets.
The time for Nadleman's incremental compromised solutions needs to end now. We need real reform. We need to have the right to "grow our own." And we need it now.
Regardless of whether you consume Marijuana I encourage all that agree with this article to get on my mailing list so that I can keep you up to date on the progress of the MERP strategy to make "self cultivation" a right of all American Citizens. You can sign up for the mailing list for free at the following link:
In addition I encourage you to visit MERP Headquarters in order to educate yourself about what is really going on in the Marijuana Legalization movement. I can assure you that what you will watch and read there is not being covered by the Mainstream Media.
The Marijuana Re-Legalization Policy Project (MRPP) = "MERP"
The time for unlimited, unregulated, untaxed Marijuana "self cultivation" is now.
