I read this FUD* report on drugged driving and decided to expose its virtues, that of those who disclosed it and the press that would publish it.
FUD Fear Uncertainty and Doubt:
A tool to manipulate and control
At a guest house called Victory. As it turns out the staff were very friendly and wanted to take care of all our needs. If you want beer, food, motor-bikes, visas, girls, drugs, boat tours or any thing you can think of, they can get it for you. The place is owned by a cop an he is concerned about your pleasure. Nobody comes back to a place where they did not have fun! I bought half a kilo of sixty bucks of some slightly seeded wild cannabis.
LAZARAT, Albania (Reuters)
Albania has been clamping down on cannabis cultivation since Prime Minister Sali Berisha pledged early this year to "wipe it off the map".
But in the southern village of Lazarat, where plants have been uprooted by police, residents feel they are being singled out and harshly showcased
"Why didn’t you come much earlier?" an old woman wailed at the police, berating them for not acting before work had gone into growing the crop. "Four of our donkeys died fetching water for these plants. And now you come and the harvest’s all gone."
Czech pot smokers exhale with relief over new drug lawLink
Czech pot smokers have breathed a sigh of relief after the government clarified a law on drug use, turning the country into one of Europe's safest havens for casual drug users.
Under the more transparent and liberal law in effect since January, people found in possession of up to 15 grammes (half an ounce) of marijuana or growing up to five cannabis plants no longer risk prison or a criminal record, but can only be fined if caught.
A young man, who acted as a banker for cannabis dealers and their customers, is being charged with hiding millions of kroner in a secret depot in Denmark. According to Copenhagen police, over the past year, up to DKK 50 million (USD 9.4 million) was stashed in a hotel room in the city.
Denmark is looking at borrowing a page from the Netherlands' approach to cannabis, as the Copenhagen City Council examines a plan to set up state-licensed marijuana stores to remove the trade from the control of gangs.
GREENLAND Here is an article John Yates translated from the Finnish newspaper, Hufvudstadsbladet.
Cannabis trade out of control.
It is impossible to fight the massive cannabis trade in Greenland as it involves the whole of society according to Hans Haahr, chief of Greenland's Drug Squad, in a statement to Radio Greenland.
The Drug Squad estimates that the trade in cannabis is worth 75 million US dollars, which is equivalent to nearly 10 per cent of the annual gross national product, including the economic assistance from Denmark. This makes the cannabis trade Greenland's third largest industry measured in annual turnover.
Eric The Red orEirik Raude in Norwegian (950 - 1000)
he took his ships, and headed for a unknown country. Finally he reached the yet called "Greenland". He called it Greenland because of the giantic cannabis fields he planted when he arrived. Because of Eric, Greenland became the richest country in the world.
Icelanders consume between 1,5-2 metric tons of hashish and marijuana every year that's about 6-7 grams a person per year.
Almost 30% of the country has at one time or another tested (tried) cannabis. Although it's hard to confirm this number since even the most hardened smokers deny smoking marijuana in polls and wont sign the demand for legislation form, afraid of the list falling into police hands and being used to persecute smokers.
Depression vs. cannabis… again.
In the great depression that preceeded the second world war one of the main issues in USA was the war against drugs. Especially the war against cannabis. It was finally banned. A ban that has been citizised “bluntly” every since.
