SHARE Monday, October 26, 2009 First National Protest To Re-Legalize Marijuana (11/21/2009)
Demand Obama Immediately Legalize untaxed, unregulated "Marijuana Self Cultivation"
Saturday November 21st, 2009
Demand that Obama Implement MERP immediately as a matter of National Security. This is the only policy that is guaranteed to destroy the Mexican Drug Cartels immediately and without another dime of American "Blood or Treasure" wasted on this senseless War on Marijuana Consumers. The tine to Legalize is NOW!
SHARE Friday, October 9, 2009 War Breaks Out Within the Marijuana Legalization Movement (Part 2)
A war is breaking out between the Cannabusiness Community, that hopes to profit from draconian regulation of Marijuana, and the pillars of the drug reform movement that insist that the self cultivation of Marijuana become an untaxed, unregulated sacred right. The second part of this series looks at how Ethan Nadleman and the Drug Policy Alliance are standing in the way of our inalienable right to "grow our own" Marijuana.

A war is breaking out between the Cannabusiness Community, that hopes to profit from draconian regulation of Marijuana, and the pillars of the drug reform movement that insist that the self cultivation of Marijuana become an untaxed, unregulated sacred right. The first shots were fired by a speech by Jack Herer and the firing of Dennis Peron from Oaksterdam University. Could this be our "Concord" moment?

By (1) refusing to free Marc Emery and (2) refusing to Re-Legalize the Self-Cultivation of Marijuana, President Obama is well on his way to becoming the most hypocritical President in US history If he refuses to do these two things immediately the American People should understand that they have been betrayed. The time for the American People to demand these actions, from President Obama, is right now.

The Obama Health Care Plan will be devastating for the American people. What we really need is a Single Payer System that insures no health care for Illegal Aliens and which completely legalizes Marijuana under the MERP Model so that the sick and poor can have a competing medicine that is completely free of government taxation or regulation.
(3 comments) SHARE Friday, May 1, 2009 Beyond the Global Marijuana March: Re-Legalization
I see the 2009 Global Marijuana March as the launching point for a unrelenting international campaign to Re-Legalize the Untaxed and Unregulated Cultivation of Marijuana under what is know as the MERP Model. The MERP Model is a much better solution than Marijuana Prohibition, the Medical Marijuana Model, or the worst model of them all: a model under which Marijuana is highly taxed and regulated.

The mainstream media is hiding a crucial fact from the public: 70 percent of their revenue comes from Marijuana. So by simply Re-Legalizing Marijuana we rob them of 70 percent of their profits and they go bankrupt. Isn't that better than Obama's solution: another war?
(5 comments) SHARE Thursday, March 26, 2009 The Peaceful 2nd American Revolution Begins by Re-Legalizing Marijuana
We must stop President Obama from engaging in a "border war" with the Mexican Drug Cartels. Re-Legalizing Marijuana, under the MERP Model, will destroy the cartels without any further loss of American blood or treasure. Demand the immediate Re-Legalization of Marijuana NOW!

I have just confirmed a leaked report that details how the US government is beginning to track Americans that are questioning the direction that our government is moving but doing nothing to track Islamic Extremist groups. Time to demand some answers from our representatives.

What if I told you that Re-Legalizing Marijuana under the MERP Model would minimally add 26.6 Billion dollars in revenue to the US economy: without the imposition of any further taxation on the American people? Wouldn't you be interested in learning more about it?

Lets put an end to Marijuana Prohibition in 2009. Enough with the compromised solutions of the "moneyed" drug reform organizations. Lets get'r done, once and for all, in 2009!

Obama admitedly used both Marijuana and harder drugs such as cocaine. Yet it appears what was OK for Obama is not OK for the American People. Is this the first sign of an Imperial Presidency? Please join the movement to Re-Legalize Marijuana under the MERP Model and end the War on Marijuana for good.

This is a commentary on the CNBC documentary "Marijuana Inc" which takes a look at the growing economy driven by Marijuana Prohibition. I discuss why Re-Legalization under a "No Tax, No Regulation" model is far better for society and some of the hurdles that currently are in the way of this occuring. My model for Re-Legalization is known as the MERP Model.

Upon minimal inspection it is clear that Marijuana Re-Legalization is the most popular recommendation to Obama in both the 1st and 2nd www.change.gov polls. So when is Obama going to bend to the will of the American People?
(14 comments) SHARE Tuesday, December 23, 2008 Yes We Can -- Have Legal, Untaxed Marijuana
The most popular change suggested at Obama's "Change" website was the Re-Legalization of Marijuana. Obama ignores the will of the American People by "just saying no." Is this a glimpse of the betrayals to come?
