Attention Washington Voters - Think Sensible Washington!

                          Washingstonians vote wisely!  

There is a new initiative getting a lot of attention in Washington state, one that is better than todays cannabis laws though still lacking and leaving many facets of marijuana illegal.  I find it strange that there is an absurd 1oz possession limit  on cannabis which no one has ever over dosed on, yet Washington state has no possession limit on alcohol from which many people have died from over indulging.

Bill to End Fedral Cannabis Prohibition

The last few week there has been an much needed change in the debate of drug policy change, one has begun.

Drugs, Wars and a Simple Question



I find it sadly amusing that the United States has spent over a trillion dollars fighting The War On Drugs. Our Government spends untold billions each year flying around looking for and eradicating cannabis gardens. They hunt for cannabis from backyards with a few plants in five gallon buckets to the gorilla gardens hidden in our forests.

Yet in Afghanistan opium poppies thrive in fields that go on as far as the eye can see,
why?


Update: found this CNN video that adds an answer to my question,
but brings forth more questions.

The Global War On Drugs: Nixon's Great Crime




There has been lots written about Nixon and especially Watergate, but the far worse crime he committed was the demonization of cannabis. While the Shafer commissions report plainly stated marijuana should not be considered an important problem. Nixon went against the reports findings and began a global war against the cannabis community.

Greece - Μήπως καπνίζει χασίς



Time for an Internet virtual tour of Greece and the famous Greek Isles.

FYI: The English word cannabis is taken directly from Greek.

The Cannabis Community Is Persecuted and Tortured By The Prohibition Laws



Recently there has been a lot of anti-cannabis disinformation on how it is a cause of paranoia and rebuttal that it does not. I find it very touching that the anti-cannabis crowd is so worried about the possible mental health problems that cannabis may cause.

War on Drugs a Success - Pot Propaganda Continues




Sometimes it amazes me the crazy tales those against legalizing drugs will write to support their position. I came across an article that was so full of BS that I felt I should share it with my readers.

Legalized drugs would not be a drug fueled orgy of chaos




There is much fear mongering since the UN received the Global Report for the legalization of drugs. Lets be reasonable and practical, we know cannabis will not be sold next to the candy bars nor will it be sold in toy shops. We already know when cannabis is sold it will be taxed, controlled and carefully regulated. It will become the states decision on how exactly the public will access cannabis purchases and looking at their history with cannabis it will certainly not be a drug crazed chaotic free for all.

End Cannabis Prohibition - Support Sensible Washington!


                        Sensible Washington needs your support!

Every once in awhile one has to really take in the whole perspective of why cannabis prohibition needs to end. It is not about potheads being able to smoke it up. It is not about medical marijuana patients having unrestricted access to their healing herb. Neither is it about swat raids that kill peaceful people and their pets inside their homes. It is not about the thousands of deaths it has caused our neighbors south of the US borders and it's not about personal  freedoms.
It is about all of these things and more, it is about humanity and fighting oppression and simply using common sense to correct the wrongs that cannabis prohibition have wrought upon us!

Alaskan Activism Blog gets a makeover today and we commemorate our first year!

I was asked to move my menu to the right hand side of the blog and have articles on the left side to make for easier reading. I thought this was cool until I remembered that had caused a problem. I took a screen shot to show the bigger pics interfere with the menu. I decided that rather the resize all my old pictures it would be simpler and and beneficial (I like some big pics) to move the menu back to the left hand side of the web page.





Since I was playing around in design I changed the template and managed a few other items, added a few new gadgets including the email notification at the bottom of the page. Really I just gave A~A a quick makeover, but it still the same great blog it always was!
While playing around today I realized my blog  was a year old on May 20 2011, I have learned a lot and had some great fun here over the past year!

Our kids, our tax dollars, the police and their Big High School Sting Operation



Sometimes the news is good sometimes it's bad and other times it really makes me mad. One of the things that really ticks me off is reading of the taxpayers money thrown away on hair brained marijuana cases.
So here is the deal, a 20 yr old police woman went to high school to bust some 16 to 18 year olds for marijuana.

Bust Criminals - Not the Cannabis Community!


It seems more people are coming to the realization that marijuana aka cannabis is safer than alcohol. Even so we are also seeing our legal system fight to maintain the status quo of the war against the cannabis community. One has to ask why this would be the case when there are more dangerous drugs and crimes that endanger the public much more than cannabis?
The Answer lies in the presidency of Richard Nixon and his determination to escalate the Vietnam war.

WA Governor to ask Feds to reschedule cannabis

This is a major point in end the war on cannabis and the destruction it wroughts upon the people!

From: freedomisgreen.com


When the Controlled Substances Act was created in 1970 a blue-ribbon commission was chartered by President Nixon to study marijuana’s proper placement. The recommendation in 1972 was that personal cannabis use should be decriminalized and it should not appear in the scheduling. Obviously Nixon ignored those suggestions.
Forty years later we live in the ‘Just Say Drug War’ era. Still, the status of marijuana has always been overseen by Congress and the President. They have been the quiet players at the poker game thus far. But the increase in aggression by the DEA and US Attorneys has produced an interesting result.
When the Washington state Legislature recently passed a bill to regulate a dispensary system for patients the fed came down like a ton of bricks on the political process. Governor Chris Gregoire (a former US Attorney in her own right) vetoed the bill. But then she turned around to announce plans to bring together the now 16 medical marijuana Governors in a unified lobby for re-scheduling to category II.
Gregoire currently leads the National Governors Association. Having the elected leaders of these states actively seek an end to federal cannabis prohibition could be a significant pressure point on Senators and Representatives in Washington DC.

Marijuana Activists Crash White House Webpage in Response to DOJ Threats



From: 
StoptheDrugWar.org


On Tuesday, I asked the enormous online community at reddit.com to help send a message to the President in response to the recent federal effort to shut down medical marijuana programs around the country. Reddit users voted to make this issue a top priority, resulting in an absolutely massive viral letter-writing campaign directed at Obama's website WhiteHouse.gov.

Only the White House could tell us how many messages they received, but if this is any indication, I think we got their attention:

Be sure to send the White House a message, they are back online and really need to hear from the cannabis community. Tell Mr Obama that cannabis laws are not something to laugh about!

Two months since Fukushima nuclear disaster began


I plan to keep updating this article as more information comes out. 

Update May 21 2011

Nuclear plant workers suffer internal radiation exposure after visiting Fukushima

 The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said it received the data from power companies across the country that measured the workers' internal exposure to radiation with "whole-body counters" and recorded levels of 1,500 counts per minute (cpm) or higher. In 1,193 cases, workers had internal exposure to radiation of more than 10,000 cpm. Those workers had apparently returned to their homes near the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant or had moved to other nuclear power plants from the Fukushima No. 1 and 2 nuclear power plants.

Medical Marijuana and Hope






Across these United States millions of people are hoping to get away from powerful addicting prescription pain killers and move to a safe non lethal herbal remedy, that being medical marijuana. Their hopes are being destroyed by our current president Barrack Obama as he allows the US attorneys to threaten states whose voters want MMJ made available to the very sick.

Marc Emery's Plea to Vote on May 2nd

A few quotes from Marc Emery's blog:



Remember the Berlin Wall coming down in 1989? After 38 years, it just came down; no one predicted it. History was made by people making history, peaceful history, defying the powerful despots of East Germany. Then all the other Eastern European commissars and dictators were cast aside into the 'dustbin of history' within a year of that momentous but unanticipated event. Who knew the power of removing another brick from a wall?

In Canada, we are about to see a historical event happen this Monday May 2nd, days away. We are about to see what could be the New Democratic Party government of Canada, relegating the tyrant Stephen Harper and his evil Conservatives to that same dustbin where other tyrants lay obsolete and despised.

President Obama

I have only recently acquired a working higher than dial speed internet, I am now able to watch youtube video's. That said I was very excited to watch the Presidents 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner, from which I learned a lot.




I now see Obama can crack the most outlandish and pugnacious of jokes and keep a completely straight face. That was something I had not understood before voting for him. I hope he can understand that next election my vote as a cannabis activist who believes in Medical Marijuana will be for some one else. That little joke of his about letting states decide the issue and that he would call off the federal war on MMJ in states that approved it, was not funny at all!

I'm back

In life there are always many paths to choose from and mine has recently been one of studying the nuclear disaster taking place at Fukushima Japan. Today Japan's Prime Minister Kan made a very profound statement that I would like to share with my readers.

                      Panel to probe nuke accident
 
 Kan said "the myth of the safety of nuclear energy" was prevalent among government and utility officials and Japan needs to "humbly reflect" on such wrong perceptions.

I think the above statement was most profound and people from other countries need to pay close attention.
