Krazy Kansans push propaganda to scare suburbanites

By Patrick Devlin

In a frantic effort to remain in contention for the hill-billiest of backward slouching states in our union, county public safety officials in Lancaster County Kansas have determined that the most productive use for more than $6000 in tax payer funds will be for the county to purchase three sets of Fatal Vision brand “marijuana intoxication simulation goggles” to misinform members of the police force and scare county townsfolk and suburbanites.

Deputy Jeremy Schwarz told local media that the county’s public safety enforcement officials will use the goggles to train deputies, school counselors and “drug-recognition experts” about what has never been scientifically linked in any way to cannabis – that the substance impairs ones visual perceptions in an unsafe way.

The public safety professionals will also use the unscientifically proven goggles to frighten members of the public at “community events” into believing that cannabis causes dangerous visual impairment.

The makers of the goggles, Innocorp, a Wisconsin company run by a marketer with an MBA from a college in Davenport, IA, who touts his experience “promoting and fostering positive attitude and behavior change” claims with absolutely no scientific validation whatsoever, that their marijuana simulation goggles “models the effects of recreational marijuana” by impairing the wearer’s ability to accurately perceive color so they “can experience the impact of what it’s like to be under the influence.”

In a flash of momentary honesty on the company’s website, the manufacture actually admits that;

“When you are under the influence of marijuana, you do not, in fact, lose your ability to perceive color.”

Catching themselves in a truth, the company clarifies their deceptive sales pitch stating that although cannabis does not effect a user’s perception of colors, their marijuana simulation goggles do in fact, “model recreational marijuana’s true effects” – without providing any evidence for this statement.

Lexington county officials did not describe the safety benefit of needlessly frightening members of the public by using non-scientific products produced by untrained quacks to spread non-facts about cannabis. Officials also were unclear about what effect the goggles will have as a training tool to further educate Lexington County’s staff of tax payer paid “drug-recognition experts” – given that the so-called “experience” that the goggles provide has absolutely nothing to do with the effects of imbibing cannabis.

None of the non-science or absence of actual facts appear to have deterred Deputy Scwarz, who sang the praises of the goggles and the various “training Kits” that Innocorp sells to local coppers across the country. Schwarz advised that he can’t wait to share the non-scientific and fact void training with the members of his county police force, “so they can make decisions on traffic stops.”

Innocorp sells packages of marijuana symptom recognition supplies and training kits to police forces that range in price from $1000 to more than $26,000.

(note from MLaw editors to Lexington County, KS: a gram of cannabis can be purchased legally in nine states for recreational purposes at prices ranging from $5 to $15 so y’all can do your own research and save the taxpayers some cash;))

Toronto Police warn Canadians to not do stupid shit in wake of cannabis legalization

By Patrick Devlin

In a series of public relations advertisements and tweets the Toronto Police Department is advising citizens that they should not contact the police for stupid reasons, such as, asking for directions, to relay messages to friends or to report fellow citizens who are using cannabis.

The public relations campaign reminds Canadians that, as of today, 10/17/2018, just as “Asking police to call your friend because you are out of minutes”, “asking (police) what to do with your frozen meat during a power outage”, or calling 911 “because you are lost” are ridiculous reasons to contact public safety officials, calling 911 to report “your neighbor’s pot plants” or “smelling weed coming from your neighbor’s home” is “not a 911 call either.” The advertisements advise Canadians, “Do not call the police for this.” The Toronto police point out that all of the ‘reasons’ for calling 911 listed in the advertisements are based upon actual calls received by the department.

As #cannabis becomes legal nationwide in Canada – the first country to legalize cannabis in North America – police are bracing for the anticipated blowback from its demonizing and propagandizing cannabis use and users in synch with the rest of civilization during the 80 year planetary prohibition of the substance.

Politicians and police have done their best to frighten citizens about cannabis use but now, within a single day, after 80 years of propagandizing and disparagement, cannabis use is as legal as baking an apple pie or riding a bicycle. Having trained sections of the citizenry to be cultural custodian snitches and deputy detectives sniffing out all the bad cannabis people, Canadian law enforcement anticipates that it may not be so simple to switch off the prejudicial behaviors that they have been encouraging for so long.

It remains to be seen how the legalization of cannabis in the nation will impact border relations with Canada’s southern less tolerant and less open minded neighbor, America, a country whose highest ranking law enforcement official believes that “80 percent” of heroin addicts got addicted “starting with marijuana” (see v2 02-06-2018).

In The United States, between 500,000 and 700,000 citizens have been arrested for cannabis possession every year over the past forty years. That adds up to between 20 million and 28 million citizens who have a cannabis arrest on their permanent record. The vast majority of Americans arrested for #cannabis possession are poor, young and minority citizens.
