U.S. Senate Leaders Should Be Arrested and Charged With Treason - by dave darrow
Despite a truth many Senators were willing to vote for Charles Hagel, as more than worthy choice for Secretary of Defense, our on-the-ground facts show us that we Americans are stuck with defense contractor and Israel-firster suck-ups like Lindsey Graham—and his whiny, albeit slick, style of political correctness—such as his recent show-trial that attempted to stigmatize anything that suggested criticism of Israel’s right-wing agenda. Graham’s strategy-driven klieg-light approach (cle...

The Zombie Drug: are bath salts really the threat we're lead to believe? - by Avan Curran
Media outlets, politicians, and the public seem in consensus that the new designer drugs known as "Bath Salts" are dangerous substances that warrant new legislation. Grizzly attacks which the media has blamed on this new class of drug provide for sensational stories, but are the claims true, or are these simply scare tactics to support a prohibition on the drugs?

Cannabidiol Relieves Psychosis in Schizophrenia, Why Illegal? - by Medical Cannabis for Mental Health
A molecule in cannabis (CBD) has shown to relieve anxiety and symptoms of psychosis in people diagnosed with schizophrenia, though many patients are denied or discouraged from this medicine with fewer side effects than pharmaceutical products because the DEA has deemed the cannabis plant to be "illegal".

I Survived an Assassination Hit on a Real IRA Leader - by By Brian Whelan
The murder of Real IRA leader Alan Ryan by Dublin's drug cartel is a tragedy as Alan stood up for the oppressed and demanded a community tax from the drug gangs. The drug cartels should pay for the damage that they cause in the community and Alan Ryan realized this. From my perspective Alan Ryan is the true martyr in the "war on drugs" who was killed for standing up to bully drug gangs. God bless Alan Ryan for his courage against evil!!

Will Obama's betrayal of medical marijuana cost him the election? - by Johnny Marijuanaseed
As Jimmy Kimmel said when he had Barack Obama on as a guest, "Don't you know that potheads vote?"

Redefining the English language to "fight the drug war" - by Steve in Oakland
In our rush to fascism police agencies parse words to get around constitutional guarantees. A court in Fairbanks, Alaska, recently ruled that the American people have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding utility bills, therefore the police have no need for a search warrant.

Reefer Madness Goes Felony - by Robert Norse
Isaac ("Lyrical I") Collins faces felony "possession of marijuana with intent to sell" charges. The War on Drugs and boldness of Drug War cops has increased significantly. For the first time that I remember at the 4-20 rally in the Great Meadow last month, an activist was arrested on felony charges for doing what others around him were doing, celebrating and sharing the joy (not to mention standing up to the absurdity of the laws). There are also racial. class, and political dimensions ...

Economic Ethics and Business Ethics - by Christoph Blocher and Ulrich Thielemann
Economic ethics involves economic policy and fairness and goes beyond business ethics, profit maximization and shareholder value. We face an inept and corrupt political economic system that converts private losses into public losses, normalizes endless war and bank bailouts, turns education into a privilege and turns democracy, risk and liability upside down.
