In Pencil: Assumptions - A Luxury That Can No Longer Be Afforded
I made a fool of myself yesterday. As the title suggests, there was some assuming done on my part. It left me shaking my head all evening. If I didn't have that soft spot for firefighters, I would have been okay.

You see, I caught a letter to the editor today questioning the intergrity and corruptability of firefighters for the position they took on "letting pot burn". To be honest, it was pretty early in the morning, I was preparing for a radio interview and I just wasn't paying the attention to detail as I should have been. Besides it was firefighters and ever since the movie Back Draft I have had the utmost respect for these everyday heroes. So without checking out the story, I zipped off a letter in defense of their position to the editor. A pretty good letter I thought. Yesterday evening I received an email from the editor saying he would be happy to publish my letter, but needed additional info. I happily sent it. Then I started thinking about how many times I had been contacted by editors in reference to my letters. Out of the handful of published lte's I have written, I have never received such an enthusiastic response. I became suspicious and went hunting down the news article that had brought the intergrity of these firefighters in question.

Sober Marijuana Users in the Crosshairs

In a coordinated series of announcements beginning late last week, federal agencies and private sector prohibitionists opened a new front in the drug war -- this time targeting "drugged driving." But the solution they are proposing, "zero-tolerance" laws that would consider drivers with even the "mere presence" of illicit drugs in their system as guilty of Driving While Intoxicated ( DWI, or in the drug czar's lexicon, DUID -- driving under the influence of drugs ), seems designed more to further criminalize marijuana smokers than to improve highway safety.

It is one of the cruel ironies of the drug war that relatively innocuous marijuana -- by far the most widely used illicit drug -- remains detectable in peoples' blood for up to 10 days after smoking a single joint.

Under the "zero-tolerance" model legislation the drug czar and others are proposing, the person who smoked a joint on Friday night could be busted for DWI a week later and regular pot smokers, in whom cannanaboid metabolites are presumably always present, could be subject to a DWI arrest any time they got behind the wheel.

Eight states ( Arizona, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Rhode Island and Utah ) currently have what are referred to as "per se" laws, meaning the mere presence of illicit drug metabolites is considered evidence of intoxication. The rest of the nation should follow their lead, said Dr. Michael Walsh, head of the President's Advisory Committee on Drugs under President Bush the elder, and lead author of a massive study of drugged driving done under the auspices of the Robert Woods Johnson Foundation's ( RWJF ) Substance Abuse Research Program and the American Bar Association's Standing Committee on Substance Abuse.

Jesus said in Mark 7:15 K.J.V. "There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man." I have been a christain for 23 years and I have smoked the herb for 32 years. Because I work with pesticides, I must have a complete physicle yearly. My health care provider said (after reviewing my recent results) that "You have the lungs of a teenager." (I am 48 years old) I was not suprised at all to find this website, but was suprised that it took so long to come about. Thank you for a frank website brimming with the truth. My last comment; please read Psalm 104:14&15 and give it a chance to sink in. Thanks, AL

[narconews] Main: Alfredo Pe�a's Little Army
November 20, 2022
Please Distribute Widely

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past few days, AP, Reuters and other simulators of international
public opinion have produced a number of articles that comment on the
Venezuelan National Guard's "takeover" of the Caracas Metropolitan police
stations. What's missing in most of these articles is context. The following
article, by Alex Main, provides a little background information on the PM
that helps understand why the Venezuelan government decided to have it

I met Alex Main last June, while I reported from the Venezuelan capital. A
clean-cut young man from the United States, he had recently arrived in
Caracas to see, with his own eyes, what was happening. We went, together, to
the popular barrio of San Juan and spoke directly with the people. Main has
subsequently become an important organizer of international solidarity
efforts with Venezuelan democracy, and an honest set of eyes and ears for
the rest of us.
