WAR ON DRUGS

A pharma company that spent $500,000 trying to keep pot illegal just got DEA approval for synthetic marijuana

Insys Therapeutics, a pharmaceutical company that was one of the chief financial backers of the opposition to marijuana legalization in Arizona last year, received preliminary approval from the Drug Enforcement Administration this week for Syndros, a synthetic marijuana drug.

Insys gave $500,000 last summer to Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy, the group opposing marijuana legalization in Arizona. The donation amounted to roughly 10 percent of all money raised by the group in an ultimately successful campaign against legalization. Insys was the only pharmaceutical company known to be giving money to oppose legalization last year, according to a Washington Post analysis of campaign finance records.

FLASHBACK: Saying Goodbye to a Giant

Approximately 300 people came from as far away as New Jersey to this quiet Sacramento suburb to honor a man who - against all odds - made the corrupt and venal world of corporations, covert operations and search-and destroy economics blink, stagger and show its true vulnerabilities. Garry Webb's August 1996 Dark Alliance series in the San Jose Mercury News, and his 1998 book of the same name sparked an international outrage that led to congressional hearings, massive disclosures of criminal activity by the Central Intelligence Agency and the Reagan-Bush (I) White House.

Landmark Bill Introduced In Congress Would Legalize Cannabis On Federal Level

In an effort to push back against repressive federal control of marijuana policy, bipartisan legislation was introduced in Congress by representatives Tom Garrett (R-VA) and Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) to exclude cannabis from the federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA), which absurdly lists marijuana as a Schedule 1 substance — a classification that denotes a substance being dangerous and having no known medicinal value.

Young boy replaces 20 different epilepsy pills with cannabis oil

The seizures stopped the first day he took cannabis oil. Now this is not the kind of cannabis that people use for euphoric pleasure. Full spectrum CBD cannabis oil doesn’t produce a high, because the CBDs inhibit the effect of THC in the cell’s receptors.

More importantly, as soon as the CBDs were applied and utilized in the boy’s body, the constant seizures stopped. The father started weaning his son off the prescription drugs. Using cannabis oil, the boy has gone from 22 pills a day and constant seizures, to two pills a day while regaining control over his physical body and state of mind.

Dutch MPs vote to allow pot cultivation

In a landmark decision, the lower house of the Dutch parliament has voted in favor of tolerating the cultivation of cannabis, a move that would decriminalize the supply aspect of the coffee shop industry.

Cannabis in the Netherlands is not strictly speaking legal as that would put the country in violation of several international treaties, but it is officially tolerated. Up until now, the authorities willfully turned a blind eye to the sale of marijuana in the country’s so-called “coffee shops,” which attract many thousands of tourists each year in Amsterdam and other cities.

Pablo Escobar’s Son Reveals His Dad “Worked for the CIA (Cocaine Import Agency) Selling Cocaine”

Juan Pablo Escobar Henao, son of notorious Medellín cartel drug kingpin, Pablo Escobar, now says his father “worked for the CIA.”

In a new book, “Pablo Escobar In Fraganti,” Escobar, who lives under the pseudonym, Juan Sebastián Marroquín, explains his “father worked for the CIA selling cocaine to finance the fight against Communism in Central America.”

“The drug business is very different than what we dreamed,” he continues. “What the CIA was doing was buying the controls to get the drug into their country and getting a wonderful deal.”

“He did not make the money alone,” Marroquín elaborated in an interview, “but with US agencies that allowed him access to this money. He had direct relations with the CIA.”
