Marc Emery – Prince of Pot

19 10 2009

Here’s a piece I found on Marc Emery on U.S TV – it includes an interview with his wife Jodie Emery and is well worth a watch!

Marc is one of the figureheads of the cannabis legalization movement and his treatment by U.S and Canandian prosecutors who circumvented normal procedure to extradite him from Canada is both contradictory and illegal in our eyes.  Further information can be found at drugwarrant.com

U.K Politicians who’ve admitted to smoking cannabis

29 09 2009

Here’s a little video I found which lists some of the U.K Politicians who’ve admitted to trying cannabis at one point in their life:

Why are they still in office?!  If they had been caught and criminalised they could never have entered politics in the first place with a drug related criminal record. Why are they so keen to impose the new classification when they obviously had no respect for the law themselves.





Barack Obama on the US Cannabis policy

9 12 2008

The video might be a bit old, but the issue is still very relevant. Barack Obama is one of the few people in the world who can actually change the stance of most governments on Cannabis. His ideas on this topic are not only important for the US of A, but also for the rest of the world. The people from the Marijuana Policy Project have made a short Video during the presidential elections earlier this year.





Top 5 Celebrity Stoners

4 08 2008

Our very own selection of our favorite celebrity stoners taken from celebstoner.com

Barack Obama

He is on number one because of this quote: “The War on Drugs has been an utter failure. We need to rethink and decriminalize our marijuana laws.” He will remain our number one all time favourite if he actually does what he says.

Jack Black

On number two because of his roles in Bongwater and Orange County. Most importantly, let’s not forget his band Tenacious D. If Jack Black doesn’t make you laugh you probably do not have a clue of what humour is.

Method Man

On number 3 for his continuing effort to the legalisation movement, him hosting the cannabis cup hemp fashion show and his arrest for marijuana possession in Brooklyn on May 17, 2007. Need we say more?

Paul McCartney

McCartney has called for decriminalization of marijuana on many occasions. “People are smoking pot anyway,” he says. “To make them criminals is wrong.”

We couldn’t agree more.

Oliver Stone

On number 5 because of the quality of his work and the memorable quote in a German television interview: “I did more dope then you can possibly dream about”

# 5

“Medicines often produce side effects. Sometimes they are physically unpleasant. Cannabis too has discomforting side effects, but these are not physical they are political”

# 6

Volney Brown Jr., Federal Magistrate-Judge,(retired)., Los Angeles. At the DPF Conference, November 1996:

“There is only one thing wrong with drug law enforcement, just one – it doesn’t work. And when I tell you this I want you to believe me because I have done it”

# 7

Detective Chief Inspector Ron Clarke, former member of Greater Manchester Police Drugs Squad: “I got tired of seeing otherwise innocent young kids from all walks of life getting criminal records for, in effect, doing nothing more than millions of other people in society were doing with alcohol”

# 8

Sir Paul McCartney, Independent on Sunday, 28th September 1997:

“I support decriminalisation. People are smoking pot anyway and to make them into criminals is wrong. It’s when you’re in jail you really become a criminal.”

Professor Lester Grinspoon, Harvard Medical School, USA:

“Marijuana is one of the least toxic substances in the whole pharmacopoeia”

Edward Ellison, former Head of Scotland Yard’s Antidrug Squad

# 12

Judge James Pickles, UK:

“Cannabis never killed anybody and it’s use is widespread. You can’t stop it. The law defeats itself because all the efforts to stop drugs coming in only drives up the prices and then gangsters move in to push the drugs. If they legalised there wouldn’t be gangsters and huge profits…The police are gradually decriminalising the possession of cannabis because they realise there’s not much point prosecuting”

# 13

Sir Richard Branson, Independent on Sunday, 28th September 1997:

“I’d like to see the government back a programme of research into the medical properties of cannabis and I do not object to its responsible use as a recreational relaxant.”

# 14

LaGuardia Commission Report, 1944

“Cannabis smoking does not lead directly to mental or physical deterioration… Those who have consumed marijuana for a period of years showed no mental or physical deterioration which may be attributed to the drug.”

# 15

Robert Sweet, U.S. District Judge, New York

”Finally, the fundamental flaw, which will ultimately destroy this prohibition as it did the last one, is that criminal sanctions cannot, and should not attempt to, prohibit personal conduct which does no harm to others.”
