SORT BY Relevancy
We the people, have a clear understanding that we must obey the law. No doubt about it. We do not advocate breaking the law. However, we do insist on the opportunity to change the laws if they do not fit our public opinion as a majority. Thank goodness that we are in a country where our fore fathers have provided us with the necessary tools to do so. We live in a land where young men and women in uniform, defend our pursuit of happiness by laying their lives on the line over seas and domestically. Where a tribune of law is supposed to be fair and just to all of its citizens.
This radio station is dedicated to actively engage listeners and help raise awareness about the unjust laws in Virginia surrounding Marijuana.
We are the people. We are for the people and we are aware that if we can unite, we can make a difference.
ABOVE THE IGNORANCE.
A solution for a BROKEN ECONOMY. A STAND FOR THE RIGHTS of the American people. A voice for those oppressed by those who wear badges. This station is fueled by ENLIGHTED conciousness and PROTECTED by the 1st Amendment.
We are determined to spread the word and unite with those who already know it. The negative stigma that has been placed on Marijuana far surpasses Politics and is an infringement on the basic rights of human beings.
Are roses illegal? No that's silly, right? It's a plant. Why would it be illegal?
I know that if we unite, we are many. Many more than them.
We will lead the way, with peace and non judgement. Something that our law enforcement counter parts have neglected us for ages.
STOP THE OPRESSION TODAY.
those who STAND FOR NOTHING, are sure to FALL FOR ANYTHING.
ROLL UP, TUNE IN, PEACE OUT.
Darbi's out of town this week, so Samuel Walter, a marijuana legalization advocate living in Colorado, will fill in as cohost for this evening's conversation. We'll be discussing the pros of legalizing marijuana, the history of its legality, and what we've learned from Colorado and Washington.
The NAACP's California Branch allegedly has come out in favor of legalizing marijuana although this has not been interdependently verified by Black Talk Radio.
If true, it is not a far leap for the California branch to advocate for marijuana legalization considering the state has already legalized medicinal marijuana.
Considering how the drug war targets African American communities, this is a conversation long over due and one that the NAA
David Loftus will discuss Measure 80, the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act, which will allow broader personal use of marijuana and provide for its taxation by the state. Small amounts of pot are legal in 13 states and many other counties and towns across the U.S., but possession is still a federal offense. Is it time to change marijuana laws?
Lynette Shaw has scored a major victory for all medical marijuana patients in her fight to keep her medical marijuana dispensary open and tells us all about it and how it affected her life on this special edition of Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense.
In 1997, Lynette opened the U.S.A.’s first legal licensed medical marijuana dispensary in Fairfax California. With the town’s blessings, she operated her medical marijuana dispensary with no problems until U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag, as part of a 2011 federal crackdown on medical marijuana dispensaries in Northern California, obtained a federal injunction to close her dispensary.
Never willing to back down she fought back and on October 19, 2015 she won a precedent setting ruling that has the potential to impact federal actions against medical marijuana laws throughout the country.
The federal injunction was lifted by US District Court Judge Charles Breyer, the same judge that had imposed the injunction, citing that the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment to the Congressional Appropriations Act of 2014 prevented the expenditure of any money by the Dept. of Justice against medical marijuana dispensaries that are compliant with state and local law.
Judge Breyer’s ruling is a major setback for the Department of Justice and has the potential to end federal prosecution of every medical marijuana dispensary that is operating legally everywhere in the United States.
Lynette will talk about the ruling, the resulting storm of nationwide publicity, how it has affected her life and what her plans are now that she is free to go ahead and reopen her dispensary.
Believing they were protected under state law, the Kettle Falls Five are medical marijuana patients in a remote area of eastern Washington. Four are family members and the other is a family friend. All had medical cards and were legally growing 44 plants. At the instigation of local police, they were arrested by the DEA in August 2012. They have undergone a torturous and unfair federal prosecution that has pitted their friend against the family.
Rolland Gregg, his wife Michelle Gregg, and his mother Rhonda Firestack-Harvey were prosecuted and sentenced in federal court earlier this month for terms from one to two years. Their friend, Jason Zucker, threatened with 20 or more years in prison, took a plea bargain, testified against them and received a 16 month sentence. Larry Harvey, the family’s patriarch, had his case dismissed due to his status as a terminal cancer patient. He died before the trial concluded.
Chris Brown, Press Secretary for Americans for Safe Access, has participated in this ongoing case and as the show’s guest will provide details of the horrors undergone by the Kettle Falls Five. Chris clearly believes “This case is exactly the type of wasteful and misguided use of the federal government’s prosecutorial powers that Congress has moved to rein in with the Rohrabacher-Farr Medical Cannabis Amendment.”
Chris will provide the history of the case, the despicable ploys utilized by federal prosecutors, what happened in the federal courtroom, the resulting convictions and the appeal that is underway along with information on the petition to President Obama to put an end to this malicious and perverse prosecution.
Chris will also review how the Congressional laws that should have prevented this travesty of justice from happening are being ignored with impunity.
Even with cannabis friendly Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, Orange County is not a friendly county for medical marijuana. Bans, moratoriums and police actions seem to rule the day but fighting mightily for the rights of patients is Marla and David James. From early advocacy with OCNORML to national notoriety when arrested and insulted by cops at a dispensary in Santa Ana, the James will tell all on this revealing episode of Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense.
The James are patients who understand the importance of the availability of marijuana for their health and the health of others and they are willing to work for it. Although not exactly working in the background, their hard and successful work had gained little attention outside Orange County circles until they were arrested by police at a Santa Ana dispensary.
Unbeknownst to the cops, they were videotaped by a secret surveillance system and the video of them during the raid eating marijuana brownies and talking about how they would like to kick Marla James’ amputated leg went viral resulting in stories from the L.A. Tmes to the Washington Times. Arrested with 11 other patients and volunteers, the James provide insider details on what happened that fateful day and how the whole incident has backfired on the cops and the city of Santa Ana.

Drug Policy Reform may seem like an unusual avocation for a retired career CIA employee, but Richard Kennedy’s tenure and subsequent endeavors make for a most intriguing episode of Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense.
Working for 31 years as a CIA economic analyst concentrating on Western Europe with later work in Poland, Hungary and Turkey including a stint with a select group of Aegean experts in the Office of Russian and European Analysis until he retired in 2003, Kennedy did not hide his belief that current U.S. drug policy was a failure speaking out at agency meetings including his post-retirement party where he was awarded the CIA's Career Intelligence Medal.
After retiring his continuing interest in drug policy led him to involvement with MPP and NORML in Washington D.C. eventually becoming a dedicated activist with Virginia NORML.
On this exceptional episode of Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense, Mr. Kennedy will discuss the CIA’s role in shaping and enforcing drug policy and how it has influenced his current work to end marijuana prohibition and change the course of American drug policy.
