Marijuana Committees and the Mexican Mafia: Are they Partners? June 6, 2014, 3:01 pm 2 comments in the last 30 days. comments
Marijuana Committees and the Mexican Mafia: Are they Partners? .

It is astonishing the way efforts toward legalizing marijuana use have gone since about the 1970’s when Vietnam War Veterans brought it back home with them. Years before that, it was Caribbean islanders and African-American musicians who carefully transmitted marijuana from New Orleans to Memphis, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City and essentially all along the East Coast.

Caught you US Senator Orrin Hatch!  Now Release the Opioid Report!October 7, 2017, 3:38 pm 1 comments in the last 30 days. comments
Caught you US Senator Orrin Hatch! Now Release the Opioid Report!.

In the 15 years I have been reporting on the prescription opioid epidemic, it has in some ways been frustrating to be a forerunner in exposing the criminal activity of pharma, the FDA, politicians, physicians, pain foundations and organizations profiting from the surging death and addiction rates -- while US Senator Orrin Hatch is allowed to obstruct justice. In 2012, the US Senate Finance Committee began an investigation into the prescription opioid epidemic. When the report was finished, Orrin Hatch simply had the contents sealed closed.

Father of Diane Downs Remains Vigilant After 30 Years (VIDEO).

30 years have passed, but the parents of Diane Downs, Wes and Willadene Frederickson, still remain hopeful that their daughter can find justice in Oregon's courts for a wrongful conviction and life sentence. They raise many concerns over her three-decade old conviction for the shooting of her three children, one of whom died, and say even the most basic tests for courts were not met or passed. We're talking about things like blood splatter, and gunshot residue... telltale signs of involvement with a crime involving a firearm.

Legendary Rocker Tom Petty Remembered with Love and Laughter.

On Oct. 2, we heard the shocking news that rock music legend Tom Petty had suffered cardiac arrest at his Malibu home and was on life support. This, just after the painful tragedy and loss of life at Las Vegas, seemed surreal, even unfathomable. Not long later, an announcement no one wanted to hear: Tom Petty had died.

Saying Goodbye to Cannabis Warrior Nurse Ed Glick .

R.I.P. Julia Effie Glick. One of my dearest friends and comrades passed yesterday after suffering from kidney disease. Many in the cannabis community knew her as Nurse Ed Glick who was a tireless proponent for the rights and ethical treatment of seriously-ill patients who use cannabis. She was intolerant of a system that lacked compassion and decency and she picked her battles wisely.
