The Nation’s Drug Cops Prepare for the Worst as Happy and Creative Music Appreciators Threaten Public Safety

By Patrick Devlin

The US Drug Enforcement Agency has released the 2017 edition of its illegal drug resource guide, Drugs of Abuse, and the agency has updated its warnings regarding the illicit schedule one drug called cannabis.

The agency classifies illegal drugs using a five tiered system, with the least dangerous substances such as codeine cough syrup being categorized as schedule five drugs, and the most dangerous drugs, such as heroin, lysergic acid (LSD) and cannabis being categorized as schedule one drugs.

Drugs included in the agency’s schedule two, identified as being less dangerous than the schedule one drugs noted above include cocaine, oxycodone and Demerol.

This year the agency reconfirmed many of the long demonized alleged effects of cannabis, including problems with memory, distorted perceptions and loss of coordination – all of this rehashing of anti-cannabis propaganda was qualified by the agency’s admission that the “physiological, psychological and behavioral effects of marijuana vary among individuals.”

The agency includes in this year’s illicit drug guide warnings that clinical studies have revealed that cannabis users can experience additional frightening and debilitating effects including;

  • – Merriment, happiness and even exhilaration,
  • – Relaxation, increased sociability and talkativeness,
  • – Enhanced sensory perception, giving rise to increased appreciation of music, art and touch, and,
  • – Heightened imagination leading to a subjective sense of increased creativity.

    The agency also advises citizens that even though categorized as a dangerous schedule one substance, “No deaths from overdose of marijuana have been reported.”

    This relatively honest reporting by the DEA, after its 80 year demonization of cannabis, is from one perspective salutary, as their list of cannabis effects comports with the personal experience of millions of cannabis users over hundreds, even thousands of years of using the substance.

    On the other hand, the notion that our government’s drug enforcers actually believe that the public safety is threatened by merriment and happiness, that our law enforcers are fearfully stealing themselves to be able to respond to a relaxed and sociable citizenry, and that Americans have to be protected from music and art appreciators with heightened imagination is certainly thought provoking.

    I feel a burst of creative imaginative energy coming on.

    A confederacy of immoral narcissists threatens public healthy and public safety in America

    By Patrick Devlin

    More arrests for cannabis possession than for violent crime in bizarro America
    THC enables human brain cells to heal themselves and fight disease
    All of the memes used by anti-cannabis warriors have been proven false by cannabis legalization

    Oregon police are baffled that legal cannabis has not brought about a mass crime wave
    Former DEA agents call for end of war on cannabis so police can do some real work
    Private prison food provider funds anti-cannabis effort in AZ
    Researchers find cannabis can be deadly, but only if you are arrested by police for cannabis possession
    Congress prohibits veterans from using cannabis medicine
    UK approves cannabis medicine, while Ametican patients suffer
    Archeologists find pre-Christian tomb with man’s body shrouded in mature cannabis plants

    The headlines tell the despicable and sorry tale:

    Prohibitionists who continue to place roadblocks to cannabis legalization are now committing immoral and illegal acts that threaten the public safety.

    Elected officials who do not demand and work to establish laws legalizing cannabis are violation their oaths of office, are guilty of misappropriating tax payer monies and are enabling criminal enterprises.

    Our political leaders, who do not immediately call for the legalization of cannabis are committing violations of public safety and enabling acts of discrimination.

    “Laboratory and animal studies show that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells” – National Cancer Institute

    “law enforcement agencies made 574,641 arrests last year for small quantities of (cannabis) intended for personal use, according to the report, which was released Wednesday by the American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch. The marijuana arrests were about 13.6 percent more than the 505,681 arrests made for all violent crimes, including murder, rape and serious assaults.” – New York Times

    As compassionate and patriotic Americans, mLaw asks you Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, President Obama and members of congress, Nora Volkow and Kevin Sabet, why do you allow the death, agony, inequality and racism to continue. What purposes are served, other than narissicistic, selfish and immoral personal aggrandizement and perceived political gain, by your calculated and inhumane inaction?

    Hillary, Donald, Barack, Nora and Kevin, America implores you to act out of compassion and for the sake of justice. And we ask, “Why do you hate sick children and young minorities?

    Breaking: DEA Says No to Medical #Cannabis

    by Patrick Devlin

    The Drug Enforcement Administration has determined again that cannabis has “no currently accepted medical use and (has) a high potential for abuse.”

    DEA 1

    The federal agency that is under the direction of the office of the president has determined that cannabis is among the “most dangerous drugs” and threatens users with “potentially severe psychological or physical dependence.”

    The DEA confirmed their belief that cannabis is as great a danger to the public as heroin,
    lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote.

    The DEA said in a letter that their decision was “based on whether marijuana, as determined by the FDA, is a safe and effective medicine,” he said, “and it’s not.” The letter went on to say that it “would be a wonderful and welcome development” if it could be scientifically proven that cannabis is an effective medicine, “but we insist that CBD research, or any research, be sound, scientific, and rigorous before a product can be authorized for medical use.”

    President Obama has stated that he wants the decision to re-schedule cannabis to be driven by science rather than ideology, but critics point to the fact that the DEA’s own aggressive scheduling of cannabis itself stifles research into the medically important substance.

    The regulatory dilemma that exists; where cannabis is deemed too dangerous to research by regulators and deemed not scientifically studied enough to be medicine by law enforcers, has led to a stalemate that has thwarted the advancement of science to the peril and ill health of sick patients.

    Forty-two states have passed laws allowing their citizens to use medical cannabis.

    Legacy jonesing Obama walks right past America’s convulsing kids

    by Patrick Devlin

    I was standing next to our local police chief when we saw a crime being committed.

    I looked at him – expecting a police response…nothing. I said, gently prodding, “Sir, don’t you see what is happening?”


    He looked at me coolly saying nothing.

    “There is a crime being committed”, I blurted.

    “Well, call the police,” I was commanded.

    “Aren’t you the police?, I asked credulously.

    “If you call the police and they think a crime is happening then they will do something,” the chief copper said.

    “But,” I stammered, you are here right now – you see what is happening right in front of your eyes…do something!”, I ordered the public servant, putting my hand on his forearm to emphasize my exasperation as we witnessed the crime taking place in front of our eyes.

    “I can’t say that a crime is happening over there, but if you don’t remove your hand you will be arrested for assault right now,” the chief law enforcement official hissed.

    >>

    Yesterday, chief Obama was asked again by an American (a congressman) if he would do anything at all within the tremendous authority that he has vested upon him as president to end the criminal and harmful war on cannabis, and he retorted that his intention is to take no personal action whatsoever to help our sick veterans and children, to end the racially motivated arrests of our young people, to spur economic growth in New-Depression America. Barack Obama intends to take no action to legalize cannabis for medical or recreational use in the United States.

    What are the consequences of this action Obama intends to take, his action to callously continue the war on cannabis? It will ensure the arrest of hundreds of thousands of Americans in the next year alone (2016- Obama’s last year as president). It will ensure that thousands of sick Americans, including suffering babies, will have to live with relievable pain every day. It will ensure that the nascent marketplace of cannabis commerce will still be encumbered by being unable to use the federal banking system, purchase business insurance or be treated fairly under America’s tax code.

    Why would this human who can help choose to do nothing and watch while his inaction results in all of these easily avoidable consequences?

    The answer to that question is simple and selfish and appalling and putrid – because Obama does not care about the sick children, Obama does not care about the hundreds of thousands of people of color who will be arrested and Obama does not care that a substantial majority of Americans think that he is wrong. Obama cares only about his sorry neo-conservative finance, military and pharma-industry captive narcissistic ass – he is simply burnishing his personal “legacy” as a political leader for the history books…sick and dying children be damned.

    When Obama was first elected, around the same time that he orchestrated a 16 trillion tax dollar give-away to private and failed finance gamblers (banks, Insurance companies, finance companies, etc), he said with a straight face that the freakily-felonious banker bullies “broke no laws.”

    Later, when he killed Americans living abroad with no legal proceeding or judicial order (nasty as they may have been before being atomized into a pink spray of bloody body bits) Obama was proud to report, “I have not shied away from using force…I have ordered military action in seven countries.”

    When he allowed criminal corporations who spilled millions of gallons of oil to oversee the clean-up of the illegal mess that they created, he boasted that he has “added enough gas and oil pipeline to encircle the earth and then some.”

    When he created a law that permanently protects the crimes of the red-lining and medicine withholding insurance industry, he chuckled that “Democrats, just congenitally, tend to see the glass as half empty’ and reminded that his “health care reform is based on the private marketplace.”

    When he was busted for maintaining and expanding George W. Bush’s illegal spy-on-everybody pogrom he blithely suggested, flouting the constitution, that his illegal scheming stole “valuable intelligence” from unsuspecting Americans.

    When it became clear that he and his predecessors participate in the medieval and illegal act of torture, he admitted unapologetically, “We tortured some folks.”

    When you hear some self-interersted dumbassed democratic party operative tell you that you have to vote for the “lesser of two evils”, again, to save our precious American oligarchy of law breaking militarists who think it serves their legacy to give tax dollar hand-outs to rich asshats and arrest the parents of sick children and arrest young minorities, remember that you can do something to help people that you will never meet:

    – simply end your support of our criminal class of bought and paid for politicians.
