     Hello All,

     Well...apparently our government indeed is trying to stop not only 
supposed
     'criminal' activity, but also the legal/legislative efforts to 
change
     cannabis laws.

     Here is the smoking gun statement from DEA proving it IS political:

     "Today's arrest of Mark (sic) Scott Emery, publisher of Cannabis
     Culture magazine and the founder of a marijuana legalization group,
     is a significant blow not only to the marijuana trafficking trade in
     the U.S. and Canada, but also to the marijuana legalization 
movement."

     "Hundreds of thousands of dollars of Emery's illicit profits are
     known to have been channeled to marijuana legalization groups active
     in the United States and Canada. Drug legalization lobbyists now 
have
     one less pot of money to rely on."

     --Karen P. Tandy, Administrator of the Drug Enforcement 
Administration
     (DEA)


     Well...there it is...Marc is as much of a political threat in the 
eyes of
     the US govt as he is a 'criminal'.

     Regards and enjoy your weekend,

     -Allen
