The Tide Of Grass Is Changing In The Wind, Or So It Seems……

The following is a story from ABC news that was published yesterday. Quite a turnaround of say..10 years ago. We are closer than ever to changing laws that offer barbaric punishment for a meaningless law structure of intolerance.

Washington is one of four states where measures to legalize and regulate marijuana have been introduced, and about two dozen other states are considering bills ranging from medical marijuana to decriminalizing possession of small amounts of the herb.

“In terms of state legislatures, this is far and away the most active year that we’ve ever seen,” said Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the New York-based Drug Policy Alliance, which supports reforming marijuana laws.

Nadelmann said that while legalization efforts are not likely to get much traction in state capitals anytime soon, the fact that there is such an increase of activity “is elevating the level of public discourse on this issue and legitimizing it.”

“I would say that we are close to the tipping point,” he said. “At this point they are still seen as symbolic bills to get the conversation going, but at least the conversation can be a serious one.”

Oakland Fortune Cookie Factory Flames Up To Reveal Marijuana!

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Oakland police are looking for the growers of at least 1,000 marijuana plants found after a small fire at a one-time Oakland fortune cookie factory.

Sgt. Rich Vierra says the pot plants, valued at about $500,000, were not burned during Monday’s fire in the former Kar Mee Fortune Cookie Factory in Oakland’s Chinatown district.

Police say the plants ranged in size from seedlings to 4 feet tall and were being grown in about 1,750 square feet of space.

The growers were apparently using an old power line outside the building to run the lights, ventilation and irrigation systems.

Authorities say the small blaze was sparked by an electrical malfunction.

The cookie factory’s previous owners were evicted last year.

Peppermint Oil, Dangerous Drug???? YES!!!!!!!

Recently a 10 year old has got in a bit of trouble over Perppermint oil. Let the suspensions ensue………

10-YEAR-OLD SUSPENDED FOR PEPPERMINT OIL

A 10-year-old suburban New York girl has been suspended for taking peppermint oil to her school and distributing it to other students. The Commack School District says in a statement on its Web Site the oil “is an unregulated over-the-counter drug.”

The girl’s mother, Corrine Morton-Greiner, said Thursday the implication her daughter Sara was taking an illicit substance to school is “infuriating.” Morton-Greiner is asking for school officials to apologize and to revoke her daughter’s suspension. Commack Superintendent James Feltman says there’s “no question” Sara’s actions violated the district’s code of conduct when she took the oil to school Monday. He says the label on the bottle says it should be kept out of reach of children.
