Flaherty said he introduced the buffer zone last year, after hearing from residents and local business owners who were nervous about the prospect of recreational marijuana use. (concerns fueled by racist and ignorant American history of false cannabis propaganda and lies)
This is exactly the type of stuff that we are here to tell you about and fight against! This is how it starts folks!
The new system that will be used to oppress, discriminate and create monopolies for the rich and connected few, starts with admittedly premature measures like Councilor Flaherty’s half-mile buffer for all cannabis/marijuana related businesses in Boston. This is the ignorance and lets be honest… racism, that creeps back into the system.
I wrote a lengthy letter and let the council know of their error. Check it out.
The weakening of the legal market is of course support for the illegal one. Which deals to kids. So…
Councilor Flaherty’s measure supports the use of cannabis by minors in the city of Boston, and supports criminal activities.
This is what unchecked racism and ignorance turns into folks! Concerned business owners and residents get irrationally nervous about what they imagine is so very dangerous, but in reality it is their cultural anxieties playing out in their little heads. We have suffered enough for the racist and ignorant concerns of their dominant culture.
We will have to wait and see what the real effect of this change will be. But we know it supports the increased use of cannabis by minors and the illegal market. We know it delays the and arrests the growth of a thriving retail market as well. Any delay of the legal Boston market is of course support for the illegal market and encourages youth use and access. Politicians should get on board before they make an even bigger mess. Voters of Massachusetts were very clear in their long battle for legality. Continued efforts by Governor Baker or anyone else are efforts that work against the safety and stability of our communities.
Amazing! What now very clearly appears to be a 2000+ year old ancient grave in China had a burial shroud of freshly cut cannabis placed on the body. This is the first time such a find has ever been recorded. This does not appear to be Hemp but what we would call today medical or sacramental cannabis because it is grown for its high thc content and not its fiber or nutritious content. Historians like myself have been waiting for exactly such a discovery for decades.
We now have the proof to the truths we have been claiming for so long and been dismissed by the mainstream society. Thanks to the work of so many professionals we are finally lifting the veil of ignorance and hidden history of cannabis in the world. Once again, in case anyone missed it…
CANNABIS IS AN ORIGINAL CHRISTIAN SACRAMENT!
THEY HAVE BEEN LYING ABOUT IT FOR YEARS!
IT IS THE MAIN ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN THE HOLY ANOINTING OIL AND HOLY INCENSE OF THE ANCIENT HEBREWS AND CHRISTIANS
CANNABIS HAS BEEN INTEGRAL TO OUR HUMAN EXPERIENCE AND CIVILIZED SOCIETY.
MODERN CHRISTIANS WONT ADMIT IT BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN DUPED FOR SO LONG
THE CONTINUED AMERICAN DENIAL OF THE INDIVIDUAL RIGHT TO CANNABIS USE IN A SPIRITUAL OR RELIGIOUS CONTEXT IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
Imagine being lied to so thoroughly that your own religion becomes a lie?
Our cannabis community is owed an apology from every Christian that made the claim that Cannabis is from the devil and is against a Christian lifestyle. This always was a lie. It is from God, and enhances ones relationship with God. Read a bible if you still have a problem with it.
AMHERST, Mass. – The Massachusetts National Guard and State Police reportedly joined forces to seize a single marijuana plant from an 81-year-old woman.
That’s right folks. Our tax dollars are still hard at work not working for us! How can law enforcement defend this behavior? They wont. They cant. Kinda like how Donald Trump’s behavior cant be defended. Its a similar attitude and culture that we see in both situations.
BOSTON (WHDH) – He’s a combat veteran who completed dozens of missions in Iraq. His newest mission is delivering medical marijuana in Boston, and he let 7News come along.
I was asked by 7News to help them with a story a while back.
They are under a lot of pressure to support the status quo and get ratings so I appreciate the airtime and opportunity to be heard. Nevertheless locals are way behind on these issues in my opinion. If I hadn’t have participated what would their story have looked like?
I did series of shoots with 7News before the Olympics and before the recent incident where law enforcement officials were blaming a local crash (into a state trooper) on cannabis, when it was obvious that there was MUCH more going on with the driver than cannabis. Politicians like Governor Baker and Mayor Marty Walsh of Boston were campaigning against the new cannabis ballot question hard back then. Don’t hear from them now huh? They now have their eyes and paws all ready for a bunch of cash that they plan to squeeze out of legal cannabis patients.
I believe that all locals should have access to the new cannabis market, not just government, not just the connected, not just the wealthy, but yes any old Mom and Pop from the neighborhood! Call me old fashioned, but that’s where I choose to take my biz. Just like my dry cleaning.. I shop local to support my community. Why cant cannabis be similar? Why cant cannabis be used to rebuild our communities instead of being used to take them apart?
Allowing corporate monopolies control over our medicines is how we got the opiate crisis.
I trust people who themselves grow AND use natural and organic cannabis grown from the power of the sun, water, and earth. Government has lost any credibility they may have had on the issue. Corporations and government simply cant be trusted to supply affordable safe quality access to cannabis as medicine.
Just more proof that the Drug War is like the War on Terror in that it has been eroding our rights and freedoms away since its inception. Don’t take my word for it! The first African-American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshal is saying the same thing here, that the drug war erodes our rights! So many people have claimed that the drug war does not erode our rights… Those people are simply wrong.
Anytime any politician speaks of any type of war we should all tremble at the long history of using wars and war terminology to dismiss the rights of citizens.
