The police disagree with the criminalization of Marijuana use too!

In Rolling Stone Magazine Baltimore narcotics veteran Neil Franklin says:

“If you are truly a proponent of public safety, if you truly want safer communities, then it’s a no-brainer that we have to end drug prohibition and treat [marijuana] as a health issue, like we did with tobacco,” says Franklin. “Education and treatment is the most effective and cost-efficient way to reduce drug use.”

On the other hand, adds Franklin, “If you support a current system of drug prohibition, then you support the very same thing that the cartel and neighborhood gangs support. You might as well be standing next to them, shaking hands.  Because they don’t want an end to prohibition, either.”

Read the full article… It’s interesting to understand this war on drugs from their perspective!

Spoiler Alert – They think the system is a mess too!

EVERYTHING Americans Think They Know About Drugs is WRONG!

High Price Book Cover

I saw an incredible documentary the other night. It detailed how the war on drugs is a complete and utter failure! In the last 40 years we have spent TRILLIONS of dollars fighting the war on drugs and it has only gotten worse. We have thousands and thousands of people locked up for simple possession charges… There was one inmate interviewed that was arrested for having 3 ounces of Crystal Meth… He had two minor violations previously for marijuana. (He was selling the Meth because he lost his job and needed to take care of his family).

He is now doing LIFE in prison with no option for parole. He will spend the rest of his life in a prison, which as he said is basically like a very long death sentance. The inmate sitting next to him raped and murdered someone and will be out in 6 years!

The link below is to an interview with a Columbia Professor named Carl Hart. He was a major role in the movie… He just wrote the book “High Price: A Neuroscientist’s Journey of Self-Discovery That Challenges Everything You Know About Drugs and Society. I know you will find this incredibly interesting!

If you are interested and I KNOW you will be the movie is available on Amazon too… It Is The House I Live In… I met the producer of the movie and she was incredibly forthcoming about her experience with the people she interviewed. She said with no exception everyone from the Judges, to the Prison Guards, to the prosecutors and of course the inmates… 100% of them said the system is a mess and is a complete failure.

The war on drugs has never been about drugs… It’s about money!

Everything Americans Think They Know About Drugs Is Wrong: A Scientist Explodes the Myths

Columbia University scientist Carl Hart combines research and anecdotes from his life to explain how false assumptions have created a disastrous drug policy.
June 13, 2013  |

What many Americans, including many scientists, think they know about drugs is turning out to be totally wrong. For decades, drug war propaganda has brainwashed Americans into blaming drugs for problems ranging from crime to economic deprivation. In his new book High Price: A Neuroscientist’s Journey of Self-Discovery That Challenges Everything You Know About Drugs and Society, Carl Hart blows apart the most common myths about drugs and their impact on society, drawing in part on his personal experience growing up in an impoverished Miami neighborhood. Hart has used marijuana and cocaine, carried guns, sold drugs, and participated in other petty crime, like shoplifting. A combination of what he calls choice and chance brought him to the AIr Force and college, and finally made him the first black, tenured professor of sciences at Columbia University.

Intertwined with his story about the struggles of families and communities stressed by lack of capital and power over their surroundings is striking new research on substance use. Hart uses his life and work to reveal that drugs are not nearly as harmful as many think. For example, most people who use the most “addicting” drugs do not develop a problem. Rather, Hart says, drugs are scapegoated for problems related to poverty. The policies that result from this misconception are catastrophically misguided. AlterNet spoke with Hart about his life and research.

San Jose Cannabis Club Helps Feed Hungry Children with Second Harvest Food Bank

Cannabis Club

Latest news for cannabis club

(PRWEB) May 21, 2013

MedMar Healing Center announces their participation in the CannaCommunity Solutions food drive to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank. Twenty-eight businesses, including MedMar Healing Center, doctors, and clubs, are coming together to participate in the food drive. The goal is to raise food to help area kids who have been impacted by the economic problems facing their families in recent years.

We like being able to give back to our community and help those in need, explains Douglas Chloupek of MedMar Healing Center. Taking part in the food drive may seem like a small gesture but, when combined with the others who are participating, adds up to a lot of help for those who need it.

From now through July 31, 2013, anyone who would like to participate can drop off their food donations at the MedMar Healing Center, located in downtown San Jose at 170 S. Autumn Street. The items that Second Harvest Food Bank reports as being most needed include pop-top tuna, graham crackers, fruit cups packed in juice, cheese and crackers, low-sugar cereal, pretzels, high-fiber cereal bars without peanuts, and 100-percent-fruit juice boxes. The food bank distributed 45 million pounds of food to low-income people last year, serving those in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.

MedMar Healing Center is no stranger to food drives. They participated in a food drive during the Christmas holidays, where they helped to raise over 1,800 pounds of food. They also participated in the CannaCommunity Solutions food drive two years ago that resulted in 10,000 pounds of food being collected, as well as others.

We are always happy to participate in the food drives, added Chloupek. People often want to help others but dont know how. This is how they can grab some items when they are on sale and donate them, knowing those items will be directly put to use to help others in their own community.

MedMar Healing Center provides a full range of medical marijuana products for Prop 215 patients, flowers, concentrates, edibles, tinctures, and more. For more information, visit http://www.sjmedmar.com/, or call (408) 385-9600.

Latest news for marijuana card

(PRWEB) May 07, 2013

The start of this week promotes a very special representation of one of the medical marijuana industry’s most undeniable powerhouse companies. MarijuanaDoctors.com, a primary subsidiary of The Medical Cannabis Network, is a company that supplies extensive services for medical marijuana patients located in any of the nineteen legal medical marijuana states. Today, the company has announced the addition of Cannabis Evaluations to their increasingly boundless roster of award-winning licensed and board-certified canna-physicians.

Located in the charming city of Pasadena, California, Cannabis Evaluations provides compassionate alternative medical practices to both inquiring and current Proposition 215 medical marijuana patients. Widely acclaimed as the City of Roses, Pasadena boasts a lovely Southern California climate that people suffering through winter blizzards and cold, rainy weather absolutely envy. The city is best known for serving as the primary host of the annual Tournament of Roses Parade and Rose Bowl college football game, aside from hosting cultural amenities, housing fine restaurants and paying homage to top-notch retailers. The Tournament of Roses is viewed in person by hundreds of thousands of individuals, and on television and on the Internet by millions around the world. By featuring a never-ending amount of beauty, entertainment and exceptional alternative healthcare services, Pasadena lives up to hype surrounding the title of being the Crown of the Valley.

Cannabis Evaluations operates as a medical marijuana certification center that features comprehensive alternative healthcare practices for patients in an around the Pasadena region. Recognized year-after-year as the best in alternative medicine, Cannabis Evaluations has established a brand that goes far beyond the boundaries of Pasadena and is deep-rooted within the foundation of the state’s medical marijuana industry. This location features a legally-licensed and board-certified physician who has provided compassionate relief to thousands of medical marijuana patients in the Pasadena region. This location offers the most unique services in medical marijuana evaluations, medical marijuana recommendations and medical marijuana certifications. Aside from featuring specialized services in alternative treatment options, Cannabis Evaluations offers a substantial amount of support and assistance within any necessary steps towards obtaining a California medical marijuana card.

Cannabis Evaluations has not only cemented a finite reputation of being a leader in alternative healthcare, but this location has also strengthened its appeal towards patients in surrounding towns, cities and counties. Although Cannabis Evaluations operates through a primary location on N. Mentor Avenue in Pasadena, that does not mean that the responsive and resourceful patient support services supplied by this location are only limited to that specific area. Cannabis Evaluations reaches out to patients in the surrounding communities of San Marino, Altadena, Sierra Madre, Rosemead, Arcadia, Glendale, San Gabriel and Monterey Park.

It is evident that MarijuanaDoctors has not lessened any efforts of marketing, advertising and overall compassionate patient services. The company has spread a distinguished brand throughout the entire East Coast, Pacific Northwest and now throughout the West Coast, all while revitalizing an industry far beyond comprehension. The valiant effort put forth by these compassionate individuals has never strayed from the initial mission of accommodating patients who need it most.
