Cannabis Culture News LIVE: US Feds Crack Down on Medical Marijuana

CANNABIS CULTURE – Watch Cannabis Culture News LIVE for the latest news and views on pot politics and the marijuana community. In this episode: Is the US federal government cracking-down on medical marijuana? A new memo and a barrage of federal raids in Montana and other states have the cannabis community on edge. John Masterson from Montana NORML joins the show to discuss the latest.

A new memo from the US federal government makes clear that authorities plan to go after medical marijuana dispensaries, “regardless of state laws.” New raids at 26 locations in 13 cities across Montana and raids in other states have medical marijuana activists wondering if the Feds are ramping up for a Nationwide offensive.

Princess of Pot Jodie Emery also joins the show to discuss her recent trip to Washington State where she was invited to testify to the State Legislature in support of a new bill to legalize pot and make it available for retail purchase in liquor stores. Jodie discusses the latest news on her husband, activist Marc Emery, who is serving a 5-year prison sentence in the US for selling marijuana seeds.

    THE USER OF MARIJUANA CAN HAVE AN EXPIERIENCE THAT MAY BE SPIRITUAL IN NATURE AND THUS THEY WILL BE TRANSFORMED INTO A PERSON THAT QUESTIONS ALL THAT HAS BEEN TAUGHT TO THEM ABOUT THEIR PLACE IN THE GREAT ORDER OF THINGS.

    FREEDOM TO BE FREE FROM WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN TAUGHT ABOUT MARIJUANA THREATENS THE NEW WORLD ORDER OF ONE GOVERNMENT AND ONE BIG PHARMA PILL FACTORY FOR ALL YOU ACHES AND PAINS AND ILLS.

    IT CAN GIVE YOU FREEDOM FROM GOVERNMENT OPPRESSION IN THE FORM OF GETTING YOU HIGH JUST FORE FUN.

    IT CAN BRING YOU A THOUGHT OT TWO ABOUT WHO OR WHAT IS YOUR MORAL COMPASS IN LIFE AND WHAT YOU DO AND WHAT YOU BELIEVE YOUR PLACE IN THIS LIFE IS.

    IF THE GOVERNMENT IS’NT THE MORAL AUTHORITY WHO IS??

    THAT’S WHY IT WAS SO IMPORTANT FOR THE COMMUNISTS., THE ARCHITECHS OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER TO HAVE PRAYER REMOVED FROM THE SCHOOLS IN AMERICA AND NOW THE PLACEMENT OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IN SCHOOLS IS BEING FOUGHT OVER IN OUR COURTS AND I SUPPOSE THIS IS’NT A BIG ENOUGH CLUE TO ANYONE OUT THERE??

    HOW ABOUT THE FEDERAL RESERVE…, DO WE NEED TO SAY “WORLD BANK” OUT LOUD TO YOU PEOPLE IN CANADA???

    YEAH IT’S BEEN HAPPENING FOR A LONG TIME ONE STEP AT A TIME.

    DIVIDE AND CONQUERE., DIVIDE AND CONQUERE.,CLASS WARFARE., THE USE OF FEAR THROUGH TERRORISM., RELIGIOUS WARS., FALSE PROPAGANDA ABOUT FOOD SHORTAGES AND FUEL PRICE MANIPULATIONS AND THE USE OF THE NOW FAMOUS WALL STREET SPECULATORS TO SPEED UP THE PROCESS OF PERCIEVED SCARCITY AND NOW WORLD INSTABILITY IS ALL AT A PUSH OF A BUTTON.

    CONSOLODATE THE NATIONS AND THEIR BANKS WITH CENTERALY CONTROLLED INTERLOCKING CORPORATE DIRECTORSHIPS AND THERE YOU HAVE IT.

    YOUR VOTE AND YOUR FREEDOMS AND LIBERTIES WERE A NICE IDEA AND THEY WORKED WELL ONCE UPON A TIME AND WE FOUGHT BRAVELY IN MANY WARS TO KEEP THE WORLD SAFE AND FREE.
    NOW IT IS AMERICA THAT MUST BE MADE FREE AGAIN FROM TYRANY AND WORLD DOMINATION BY THE COMMUNISTS AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER.

    THIS IDS THE TRUTH AS I BEST CAN TELL IT.

    MARIJUANA THREATENS THE WORLD POWERS THAT BE.,
    ALL THROUGH ITS DEVINE HEALING NATURE AND ITS INNATE DEVINE SPIRITUAL GATEWAY.
    THE FACT THAT IT IS BASICALLY AVAILABLE FOR FREE TO EVERYONE THAT KNOWS OF ITS SECRETES IS A BIG TIME DEAL AND THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GROW YOUR OWN, FREE YOUR MIND, FREE THE PLANET!!!!!!!!

    FREEDOM FIGHTER MUST UNITE TO SAVE MARIJUANA FROM THE NEW WORLD ORDER AND THE BIG PHARMA PILL PUSHERS!!!!!!!
