Congratulations are pouring in to the East Liverpool, Ohio PD for publicizing photos of adults passed out from a possible Heroin overdose with a (gasp) innocent little kid sitting in back of the car. The chief of the department is getting a lot of air time talking about the horrors his small town is suffering from the Heroin epidemic, and how helpless he is to fight it.

You have to respect this cop. He is clearly trying to do his job.

Still – I have to wonder how many people die each year in East Liverpool, Ohio from Alcohol and Cigarettes? I wonder how many kids are given cancer by their smoking parents? I wonder how many kids are beaten up by drunk parents? I wonder how many wives are abused by drunk husbands? I wonder how many Diabetics die, and how many obese people suffer and grow ill far too young

My guess is that the numbers of dead from alcohol and cigarettes (and metabolic disease and obesity) in East Liverpool are pretty much like those around the country – the real killers are so commonplace that nobody cares, but let a few unfortunate victims of Weaponized Heroin show up and it’s time to panic.

I’m sure that the Ohio police chief really believes what he is saying, but if his town’s priority is saving human life from products that kill then along with just about everyone else in this country he is being manipulated into a panic designed to create a stampede.

That stampede could be turned and stopped before it reaches the abyss by the simple abolition of all laws on the Federal level regulating the private cultivation and use of all natural drugs. Eliminate the regulations; eliminate the regulators; eliminate the corruption; and take the pain industry away from the international criminal cartel called Big Pharma.

Fortunately all that doesn’t have to happen on the Federal level IF one or more of the states that have already expressed their independence from Federal oppression on Cannabis legalization will take the next steps necessary to sever all powers of the Feds to regulate the Cannabis industry within their state borders, or in any communications, banking or other kind of network within the borders of the state, then we’ll know that the end is near for the War on Drugs. State’s rights must extend to the freedom to declare independence from abhorrent Federal regulation within the borders of any State. The freedom to grow your own ANYTHING is a fundamental freedom that any civilized society must acknowledge. Who will be first State to force the Federal tyranny off the backs of its citizens?

I love creating, testing, and launching new ideas that work and that make a positive contribution to other peoples' lives. I love breaking trails and discovering hidden or new pathways, new ways of looking at special parts of the world, and most of all I love sharing what I find with others. I wrote the first Cannabis grow book “The Cultivators Handbook of Marijuana” in 1969. Cultivators has sold over 6 million copies worldwide & is still in print in 2016. I'm very happy to have been a part of the beginning of what is now a true revolution. I created The Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company in the early 1980's and invented the American Spirit™ brand. My hope is that many people who chose the organic tobacco alternative have enjoyed smoking a more natural product and been healthier because of it. I wrote the first Cannabis extraction/medical edibles book “Marijuana Foods” in the early 1980's. While Cannabis extracts for medicinal use go back thousands of years, many people in my generation had not even heard of Cannabis butter. I was happy to share what I discovered through research and experimentation. I wrote the first organic Tobacco grow book “The Cultivators Handbook of Natural Tobacco”. I know that in some parts of the country, growers are selling organic tobacco at farmers markets, and I still have hope that a networked collaborative industry can be organized as an alternative to the so-called "Tobacco Industry". I helped thousands of people to be better cross-cultural business communicators with the “International Straight Talk” video/CBT series in the 1990's. If you have the patience for some very old-style talking heads videos they are all digitized and online. A lot of culturally-astute people appear in these videos sharing valuable information. I re-introduced Coca Leaf to the natural medicines dialogue with “Panacea Chronicles” and “The Coca Leaf Papers” in 2010 – 2012. This is a digitized collection of core books on Coca from the 18th and 19th centuries, with a hyperlinked bibliography. I created this resource so that people could connect with Coca's relevance to core health issues in today's world through understanding its historical context. I just finished (2016) developing a market-disrupting line of Cannabis products for “Landrace Brands™”. I figured there was no reason a company run by people I care about to be just another me-too Cannabis industry startup, so we came up with a few surprises. I enjoyed this process and would like to do the same for other Cannabis market companies run by good people. I am currently researching and writing "Cannabis For Seniors: A Caregivers Handbook" to be published in 2017. I welcome your ideas for topics, and stories about how Cannabis has made a difference in your own life or in the life of someone you love. I am always looking for interesting new challenges. Is there anything that we should be discussing?
