Wal-Mart of Weed set to open

Officially, the name is weGrow, but the soon-to-open "marijuana superstore" is also known by some as the "Wal-Mart of weed."

The store is a 21,000-square-foot space at 29th Avenue and Thomas Road in Phoenix, and it will celebrate its grand opening Wednesday evening.

Calling itself "the first honest hydro store," weGrow specializes in hydroponic equipment, supplies and training — all the tools and tips one might need to grow marijuana. The store sells everything except the plants themselves…

Drug Raid gone horribly wrong as Columbia MO Police Department continues its abuses.

There is another example of how law enforcement is becoming civil militia. This video is tough to watch, but is a must watch for anyone concerned not only with our backwards drug laws, but also our rapidly disappearing citizens rights in general. These tactics are more appropriate for a terrorist cell, maybe a gang of bank robbers but marijuana??? Despite the fact someone assumed he was distributing, five or tens POUNDS would not warrant these tactics when talking about marijuana.

 

Here we see cops dressed like soldiers, barreling through the front door middle of the night, slaughtering the family pets, one of which is locked in the kitchen behind a gate, filling the house with bullets in the presence of children, then having the audacity to charge the parents with endangering their child. The only ones here endangering children are the police discharging 7 rounds in a home that was obviously not a drug den.

 

Each member of the SWAT team should be required to sit down with that boy with helmets in hand and apologize for hurting his daddy, killing his dog, and scaring him and his mom. And then they should be required to say, "We made a bit mistake and we are very bad men to have scared you like that." I cannot imagine this child’s trauma.

This video is like something from a Nazi war film. Even after they have him in handcuffs, have shot his dog, terrorized his wife and kid, found no weapons or large quantities of drugs, they still treat him like crap.

 

Anyone that could even remotely, by the longest stretch of the imagination, defend the actions of the police department, is out of their mind.

Notice the yard – look like a drug house to you?
Notice the living room – certainly looks like a dangerous drug-den to me

 

Dose the Columbia police department not have tasers? Oh yes, they do I forgot about them tasering the mentally ill man off of the bridge. This appears to be a police department with a systematic over reaction problem.

 

This is what America’s war on drugs looks like.

Penn Gillette says stop the war on drugs now

Penn Says Legalize Marijuana STOP the war on drugs now

Ron Paul debates Stephen Baldwin on Legalizing Marijuana on CNN Larry King.

Stoner Philosophy on cannabis, legalization, and the drug war.

Our core philosophy comes down to the simple fact that pot is not a drug unless basil and oregano are drugs.

Lets start with that. Pot is not a drug, no matter what anyone tells you. So if you are looking for someone to say you can do whatever you want, go someplace else, we hate druggies. They are the scum of the earth. A pothead is not a druggie. Cannabis could be cloves, oregano, basil, or any one of a number of herbs. If you are into drugs that have to be manufactured or altered by humans for use, you do not belong here, so all you drug addicts go away from us and our kids.

Pot, weed, cannabis, or whatever you want to call it has been the subject of movies, songs, books, protests, debate, and rebellion. It is recreation, inspiration and medication for some. It is an obsession for others and for us, it is a chance to get together, talk politics, philosophy, and more and see where it goes. Like many of the great musicians of our time, some of our best ideas come when we are baked. This website for one.

I mean really, have you ever heard of a stoner getting in a fight? Stabbing someone? it just doesn’t happen. Stoners want to live and let live. The harms of marijuana are so much less than the harms of alcohol it isn’t even a logical argument that can be made. Marijuana is not a gateway drug. when you are stoned, you don’t want to go get another drug, you just want to sit around and laugh at shit.

We are not going to tell you that there is no negatives to weed. We are aware of some of them. For example, marijuana kills brain cells. So what? I agree that it probably does, but so does drinking beer, sneezing, hitting your head and holding your breath for too long. It seems that everything we do kills brain cells in some way and as soon as we outlaw sneezing we can get to marijuana.

What’s the big deal really? It doesn’t cause violent mood swings, it actually prevents them in most people I know, it is physically impossible to overdose on, it doesn’t eat holes in your liver, and it isn’t addictive like some medications and other drugs.

Even better it has a ton of benefits that none of the other things we think of like alcohol possess. Smoking bud produces anandamide, the chemical that can also with dexterity in spinal injuries. The drug has been reported to help patients with Multiple Sclerosis in controlling their pain. It eleviates nausea in cancer and HIV patients and can help them increase their appetite

Cannabis and religion: Religious people or I should say the ‘religious right" tend to be the ones with the most vitriolic hatred for stoners. The best we can say to them is to quote from Genesis

"God said, ‘Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed which is upon the face of all the earth.…To you it will be for meat.’ … And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." (Genesis 1:29-31)

Many scholars now believe that Jesus was a stoner. Early Christian documents found in Eygpt, thought to be a more accurate record than the New Testament, portray Jesus as an ecstatic rebel sage who preached enlightenment through rituals involving magical plants. Wonder what those magical plants could be? Think about it. I personally think that Jesus would look more favorably on Spicoli than the high school jocks.

"The drug is really quite a remarkably safe one for humans, although it
is really quite a dangerous one for mice and they should not use it."

J.W.D Henderson
Director of the Bureau of Human Drugs, Health and Welfare, Canada

"How many murders, suicides, robberies, criminal assaults, holdups, burglaries and deeds of maniacal insanity it causes each year, especially among the young, can only be conjectured…No one knows, when he places a marijuana cigarette to his lips, whether he will become a joyous reveler in a musical heaven, a mad insensate, a calm philosopher, or a murderer…"
HARRY J ANSLINGER
Commissioner of the US Bureau of Narcotics 1930-1962
