Tonight on Beyond the Veil, we will be looking a little more closely at the statements made on the latest episode of the GOP Real World sponsored by CNN specifically related to Marijuana Legalization. We will be joined by Shaun McAlister who is the Executive Director of DFW NORML as well as a small business owner of iamshaun.com as we cut through the issues of 1936 that seem to be resurfacing in a 2016 bid for President. We will also discuss the ongoing and upcoming efforts and events planned for North Texas and let you know what you can do to help!

Excerpts from a James Flaming Eagle Mooney's (website) on NORML Radio on 07/28/2011
22 Jun 2013 Utah ------- OGDEN -- The war on drugs may have been declared over by national drug czar Gil Kerlikowske in 2009, but the controversy over the laws in place to control drug use continues to incense people on both sides of the legal argument. According to LEAP - Law Enforcement Against Prohibition - the problems caused by America's drug laws warrant enough attention to be kept in the public consciousness. James Mooney, a former undercover narcotics officer who is now a public speaker on behalf of LEAP, spoke about his experience at Tuesday's Weber County Commission meeting. "I was about to arrest these people inside a home ... and I ended up hearing this little boy crying. I realized that I was about to take away his parents for 10 years and basically create an orphan. I realized that the basic structure of every civilization is the family, and the war on drugs is decimating our families," Mooney said. LEAP is made up of former law enforcement officers and criminal justice system members who oppose current drug policies. The organization sends speakers to various public events to educate people about the judicial system's reasons for continuing the war on drugs. "The only reason this thing has kept on going is because of money. The war on drugs is responsible for about 70 percent of all finances in the judicial system. It is an excuse to violate people's rights, and it is unconstitutional," Mooney said.
Part II of: TMDS Declares May Med MJ Month!
I'll start with TBI's, and most BI's see life usually more 'gingerly' thru small amounts of marijuana intake. If you've never experienced a Traumatic Brain Injury, then you have to take out word for it. If not? Go experiencing you're own TBI is an option, or with an open mind (weed or no weed) listen to the guests, and be a caller. Tonight is your night to express your opinion on the positives of Medical Marijuana. Patient Rights tops my list, not the buzz.
I mean, if a buzz felt required by my inner soul any more, I can sit, duck my head, spin it real fast over and over and I will guarentee you I will catch a bigger buzz than you could ever imagine, or want. So, I won't proceed witht he demenstration. Take a toke to calm my nerves, slow the focus (so I have some focus) and enjoy the moment? You bet ya. Privately? People don't enject daily insulin shots in public do they?
Ms. Sue Root, mother of TBI Survivor Amy Root will join us again, God allowing so. Amy had a rough week, but could she of use Med MJ to calm her siezures? Not in Florida. Besides, I dunno, but her Mother thinks so. And Doctors and friends. THE Honorable Kevin Phillips, host of WTF on this network joins us, giving a military aspect on Med MJ. The Marine may surprise ya! NORML is in the fold, as I've been in contact with the Indiana Chapter and National Chapter in D.C. Looks positive (I like positive) for a call. An extended offer goes out still to Montel Williams for the 25th Memorial Gala, still awaiting a reply. But Sue's been hard at work, as is Debbie Wilson, who is away this week at a Conference on Patient Rights. Debbie will return next week, and will ROCK as always.
Sam Way, where are you? I best call Canada
I did everything society said to be happy. I got the degrees: BA, a Montessori degree, and an MA. I married the “right” men who could “give me respect and boost my confidence.” First an attorney. Had one daughter. The marriage ended after seven years because of his affairs. Eight years later, my second husband was a cardiologist from Virginia. We had a bi-coastal, whirlwind coke-induced love affair for eighteen months. The marriage lasted six months. I did things I thought might help society. I sent women to London for abortions before Roe v. Wade. I was active in the peace movement to stop the Vietnam War. I started NORML (the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) with my first husband. I had the right jobs: I wrote and produced for PBS. I won numerous awards. I wrote screenplays to shine the light on inequities. None of this alleviated my pain, shame and suffering from the childhood beatings and sexual abuse that led to my self-abuse. My healing journey began with Shhhh!
I have lived in Venice Beach, CA., just steps to the sand, for eighteen years. I’m a grandmother of two loving, beautiful, half Chinese boys. I just had a portion of a short story published in a new LA literary journal, FRE&D. Currently, I’m working on my next book, “Mother NORML”. For those who wish to clean out their pain and shame please join me in my weekly webinar, Skype to Write. I have been on a spiritual journey. I have become the me I came here to be!
