We are honored and excited to bring you coverage of this summer’s Western tour for The Effinays. 420RADIO’s “Radical” Russ Belville has been invited on tour to chronicle the band’s performances and to add his own presentations of marijuana facts and statistics to motivate marijuana aficionados and lovers of liberty.
Florida has a massive problem with its “Oxycontin Express”. Yet the drug Florida’s legislature can’t stop trying to control isn’t Oxycontin, it’s cannabis.
This is another outrage of prohibition: the distribution of unsafe, untested, and sometimes faux drugs. The only time someone’s busted for this kind of con is when police investigate them, because the illegal nature of the product makes it impossible for the consumers to complain. If drugs were legal, people taking them would know what they are getting, there would be fewer overdoses, and less violence when fewer consumers are reacting to ripoffs the only way they can – through extra-judicial means.
420RADIO will bring you live coverage from the Texas Regional NORML Conference, June 7-9.
Kevin Sabet: 39% of Washington high schoolers get marijuana from dispensaries. Truth: <15%. In Seattle only.
Instead of “39% of HS students in Washington state report getting their marijuana from a “medical” marijuana dispensary”, it seems like within the past month, at most 2.1% of students in Seattle “usually” got their marijuana from a dispensary.
Now, a new poll released in Oregon shows that the locals do seem to know more about the political climate for legalization here, with an astounding 57% of likely 2014 voters supporting a specific tax and regulate proposal for marijuana legalization.
One of the most striking and consistent observations about Dzhokhar, or Jahar as he was commonly known to his friends, was that he was a normal college kid. Evidence of his normality was his heavy marijuana use as a party boy.
It is time for us on the West Coast to begin to flip this frame to “All Use is Nunya”. It doesn’t matter why you use marijuana, it doesn’t matter how harmful or harmless it is, it matters only that you are a free adult who’s been given the right to alter your consciousness with booze, cigs, caffeine, OTCs, and Rxs, and there is no legitimate reason to allow to us those and forbid to us marijuana.
The Denver alt-weekly WestWord picked up on my article about Dr. Christian Thurstone, worried that the kids are getting “Higher and Higher” these days and before we know it, they’ll be shooting up THC.
Older readers will remember the parody PSA on Saturday Night Live around 1976 where Chevy Chase rolls up a doobie, takes off his belt, ties of his arm, and repeatedly stabs the joint at his veins, as Dan Aykroyd intones “Why do you think they call it dope?” Dr. Christian Thurstone thinks it’s soon to be real.
For years now, we have been lobbying for marijuana legalization with frames like “treat marijuana like alcohol” and “tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol” and “marijuana is safer than alcohol”. Setting marijuana in a frame alongside alcohol has molded the public’s understanding of the drugs to think of them similarly.
KTVB has followed up on the story after being contacted by Patrick J. Kennedy of Smart Colorado – better known here as Project SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana), the brainchild of drug czar acolyte Kevin A. Sabet.
There will be a press conference (Facebook Event Link) for the Idaho Three (Lindsey & Josh Rinehart and Sarah Caldwell) on the steps of the Statehouse in Boise this Monday at 2pm Mountain Time.
How tragically absurd. If your child has access to a lethal machine that kills someone, it’s just an accident. If your child has access to a non-lethal plant that heals someone, it’s child endangerment
Four young boys, ages 11, 10, 6, and 5, have been taken by the State of Idaho Child Protective Services from their families. Three prominent marijuana activists are now fighting for their children and their freedom. If you can help financially support these brave activists, please visit http://rad-r.us/IdahoFund to donate.
I was thrilled to see SWAT being used for its actual purpose for once! Not serving marijuana warrants and drug warrants to overwhelmingly peaceful people who will be flooding Denver this 4/20 to experience freedom!
The Illinois House just voted 61-57 to pass the nation’s strictest medical marijuana bill, which would make Illinois the nineteenth state to legalize the use of limited amounts of marijuana under strict medical conditions.
Growing 30,000 marijuana plants means Uriel won’t see the outside world again until close to 2031. While he’s in prison, perhaps he’ll get to meet Marquise Montgomery.
I guess citing your statistical improvement from 1979 counts as a “Recent Accomplishment” if our frame of reference is the history of the United States. Since the DEA was created in 1971, I should think that “recent” would have to be within at least this century.
Here on The Russ Belville Show, we are debuting five new Cheech & Chong tunes from the Cheech & Chong’s Animated Movie! Soundtrack from Friday, April 12 through Thursday, April 18.
