  1. The day after Good Friday, The Final Day of The confrence I hope and pray that Obama will come forth and declare with his last breath, Free Cannabis.
    Cannabis has been in use for thousands of years, the free people do not need another committee to figure it out.
    Too many drug cops, too many lawyers, too many experts.
    Cannabis is like a vegetable, good greens in your diet will lead to a healthier life.
    As a tax payer in this USA I say too many taxes, too many drug cops, too many fat experts.

  3. Any reasonable person knows that justice is “the finding of the truth.” So! the question then becomes – “Why hasn’t the Justice Dept. shown due diligence in finding the truth?” It’s rather obvious that our visualization of the truth is not the same as the DOJ’s visualization of the truth. The intention of justice is to prove the guilty – guilty – and – set the innocent free. Government has not demonstrated that intent – and – the cost of doing business with government is far too expensive. The Justice Dept. is not there to “make law/policy” – they are there to “carry out law/policy.” They are there to uphold and defend the laws of the state. “So much for justice.”
    THE POINT OF NO RETURN. It’s safe to say – we have “passed the point of no return” – there’s no going back – we can only go forward. OK! – do we go forward with full force – or – do we go forward half assed? It’s an individual choice each of us have to decide – whether we’re in or out. If you don’t believe you can win – you won’t win. If in – fasten you seat belt – you’re in for a ride. If out – you’re out – with no way to go. If any individual is worried about public image – it won’t get tarnish by abstention. It may effect one’s personal image – but – no go – no show. It’s a matter of full dedication and commitment to freedom.

    I wonder about my soul, when I must come before the table of Eternal Wonder, what do I bring?

  5. Hi, I was a long time subscriber to High Times Magazine. I stopped because I ran out of money, and N.O.R.M.A.L. just got too Expensive. I’m back, in the groove again at age 72 , but I find that I cannot puff anymore. It hurts! ! I had books on most phases of Marijuana use, cultivation, and receipies for how to cook , process & use marijuana [ “brownies”, cakes, fudge,that I bought through “High Times” Magazine years ago, but a neighbors Son illegally entered my house, and stole ALL OF MY BOOKS RELATING TO MARIJUANA. Are there any books available for purchase, on the subject of cooking with Marijuana? How do I buy them? Also, is “HIGH TIMES” magazine still around? Does anyone have recepies, that I can buy, beg, or borrow? Thanks Much! Bill H.
