Greetings fro New York City on the 4th of July. The editor of drugwar.com plans to sit and watch the fireworks from his rooftop in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, one of the best views of the fireworks displays, as well as once offering an unimpeded view of the World Trade Center Towers.
    For the editor, this day is a reflection of just which Americans the phrases "the land of the free" and "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" pertain to. Have taken a meager 18 week course in Civics in junior high school in Sarasota, Florida years ago, taught by one of the Ringling brothers' circus family performers, the Carl Walenda of the Flying Walendas, to be quite frank, the depth of real learning in this class about the US political system and how it really works was minimal, even had I been able to keep from dozing off less often and pay more attention to the incredibly boring and superficial presentation.

so on to the news.

Craig Morris has written a special commentary for Drugwar.com, entitled "Medicinal cannabis (in the UK) - Is drug-policy rational or a series of 'accidents of history'?"
http://www.drugwar.com/morris1.shtm
"It is my opinion - and has been for some time now - that to continue denying such individuals access to cannabis on a legal basis is a question of human rights and that the issue ought to be pursued on such a basis legally," writes Morris, a Research Associate at the University of Greenwich in London. He is currently completing his doctoral thesis on the subject of medicinal cannabis use by chronically ill and disabled people. 

There is coverage of the One Blood project, a conceptual art piece geared towards reminding people that we human being are not really truly separated, that we really are of one blood, that if cut we bleep the same color red.

"One Blood is visual symbol of the unity of all human beings" say Claire Lemmel, the artist, and David Jones, her husband."

Who Takes Responsibility for the Carnage an interview with Clifford Wallace Thornton, Jr.
http://www.drugwar.com/thorntoninterview.shtm

Clifford Wallace Thornton, co-founder of Efficacy-online.org, (http://www.efficacy-online.org) is a man who someone of a prohibitionist mindset might expect to be rabidly pro-War on Some Drugs, considering the horrifying circumstances involving his mother and drugs he experienced mere weeks before graduating high school. After spending a good number of years holding the opinion that illegal drugs should be "eradicated from the face of the earth," he began to change his perspective. Because after diligently researching the War and its actual effects, and not only speaking with but listening intently to others who explained the all encompassing destruction resulting directly from the War on Some Drugs itself, Thornton has become an outspoken advocate, a full time activist, dedicated first to bringing the War into full public discourse and discussion, and ultimately an end to the War on Some Drugs itself.
We'd like to remind you all once again to Cletus Nelson's brilliant report for drugwar.com,
"Headshrinking the American Addict- Recovery in the 21st Century" with focuses on research by the National Institute for Drug Abuse into vaccinations designed to forever "cure" human beings from getting "high" on any assortment of substances both legal and non, 
http://www.drugwar.com/cheadshrinking.shtm
because in light of a new report, Cletus's article is especially disturbing. Considering the following:
Risk-Benefit Profile of Commonly Used Herbs - Legal & Otherwise (July 1, 2002)
(http://www.drugwar.com/pprofile8herbs.shtm)
While comparing 7 legal herbs, and one illegal herb, all generally accepted to be medically beneficial, Dr. Rick Bayer reports on recent findings that, "If the action of the cannabinoid is blocked with an antagonist drug, the newborn pups do not suckle and thus die. Therefore, not only is the internal cannabinoid system important for pain control but it also regulates important appetite areas in the brain that are essential for life in newborn mammals." This brings to mind , [as noted above] Cletus Nelson's recent article for drugwar.com, "Headshrinking the American Addict- Recovery in the 21st Century", which dealt with recent advances in vaccinations and antagonists designed to permanently block the ability of humans to get high. Scary stuff.

(Yes, these service men and woman are expected to die for the corporation's...uh, I mean, the Democrublcian Party send them to die in, but they cannot do drugs of their own choice of they risk prison for life. What in the hell is this reasoning, other than perhaps a fear that if too many troops who are supposed to kill other human beings might actually begin to question their programming if they use drugs.

The Technology Secrets of Cocaine Inc.

To be honest, while having linked to this article at drugwar.com, and not really doubting the major international drug trafficking  cartels have plenty of money to buy technology and inside influence in all areas of society, most certainly not limited to those political, intelligence, military, and law enforcement branches in non-American countries A glaring point in case- drugs cannot not be kept from pouring in floods across US borders. What's to make anyone think corruption is somehow magically stopped at those same porous borders? So isn't it quite possible that many of these cartels, who in the past have been documented to actually be working with US intelligence services, ahve acquired mcuh of this high tech euqipment from US sources both public and covert? This is admittedly only specualtion, but the question has been raised in the mind of the editor of the Drugwar.com

There's also links to nuclear dangers, more misadventures of Matt McDaniel in his mission to help the Akha people not only preserve their heritage, but flat out survive, semi-covert US funding of paramilitaries who aren't called paramilitaries in Bolivia right now, the socialist origins of the Pledge of Allegiance, and one heck of a lot more.
    Last but not least, there's tons of room any and all to post their views, their calendars, their links, whatever they want pertaining to the War on Some Drugs in our spacious forum, so please feel free to stop by.
    Peace, will eventually arrive,
