    For you Bush Lovers...Is this OK?

    This really pisses me off that Bush would go to these lengths to put people in jail for marijuana.

    We need to get Bush out of Office soon.

    And Now to the Story:



    Federal officials are subverting California's medical marijuana law
    again, and California prosecutors are helping them do it.

    After six months of pursuing the case, a California prosecutor
    suddenly dropped state charges against a middle-aged couple who grew
    marijuana for their own medicinal use. Then, as soon as the two were
    deceived into thinking their troubles were over, federal officials --
    invited by the state prosecutor -- swarmed into the courtroom and
    arrested the couple on federal charges.

    This elaborate ruse was enacted for the sole purpose of getting around
    California's medical marijuana law. It is an outrage.

    David Dean Davidson, 52, and Cynthia Barcelo Blake, 53, grew marijuana
    on their own property for their own use. They had a doctor's
    recommendation to take marijuana for their illnesses. Yet they were
    arrested, and Tehama County prosecutor Lynn Strom pursued a case
    against them for six months. Then, in the courtroom, she suddenly
    dropped the charges.

    Thinking the case was dismissed, the couple's lawyers were lured into
    the judge's chambers. While the lawyers were absent, the feds swarmed
    into the courtroom and arrested Davidson and Blake on federal charges.
    The lawyers were deprived of the opportunity to advise their clients
    of their rights. If convicted, the couple now faces a mandatory
    minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison. Please see
    http://www.mpp.org/states/site/quicknews.cgi?key=6004 or
    http://www.mpp.org/states/site/quicknews.cgi?key=6040 to read more
    about this outrageous story.

    Strom "knew she couldn't win," defense attorney Tony Serra said. "So,
    she concocted this terrible, illegal, underhanded scheme to separate
    David and Cindy from their attorneys and transition them into federal
    jurisdiction, where she knows that medical necessity is not a
    defense." I'm sure you agree that the people of California don't pay
    Strom her salary so she can undermine the law they passed by a
    statewide ballot initiative.

    MPP staffers are working seven days a week to end marijuana
    prohibition so that outrages like this will become a thing of the
    past.

    If you're upset about this and want to do something to fight back,
    please consider working for the Marijuana Policy Project on one of our
    upcoming ballot initiative campaigns.

    I co-founded MPP nine years ago because of my deeply held conviction
    that marijuana prohibition is wrong -- and that I could help end it.
    If you share this conviction and are able to move to a different state
    to work for relatively low wages from February to June (and perhaps
    all the way to November), please visit http://www.mpp.org/jobs to
    learn more.

    WTF! Justice? NO! This is an example of how power corupts. I use this quote alot, and it hold true to this day. "Absolute power, corupts absolutly" - Albert Einstien. She went on a power trip, and got two people thrown in jail for her OWN cause. She should be tried in court for conspiracy to commit fraud or some shit! something, anything! JUST GET HER ASS OFF OF THE FUCKING HIGH HORSE SHE ROAD IN ON! This is bullshit. She does not serve the people with shit like that. She serves herself.

    It's not just Nush. It's Ashcroft. Ashcroft is the puppetier behind all that shit. Bush is just the bitch with Ashcroft's hand up his ass. But as goes Bush, so goes Ashcroft.

    The federal government had a hand in it. Bush didn't show up to arrest them with his own hands, but does that make him neutral to all this? does he not control this contry, and what is happening right now? I fail to see how he is not connected to prosecuting medical marijuana users.

    Good Waste of Time

    All I can say is that it's a good thing we use our country's resources (i.e., our tax dollars) to imprison 50-something's growing pot in their back yard when we've got terrorists and the like running rampant all over the place. Makes perfect sense to me.................... WTF?????

    Isn't this like saying "OJ didn't reach into Nicole Brown with his own hands causing her to bleed to death. It was the knife! Blame the knife!"???

    Now don't get me wrong. Strom played a very key role, but could only do so because of Bush and his thugs

    No, no.. I didn't say that. But I wonder how many of our resources would be better spent doing other things? That's my point.
