Ex-DEA Spokeswoman: ‘Marijuana Is Safe’, Kept Illegal Because It’s A ‘Cash Cow’ 

Before the heroin epidemic became a nationwide problem, claiming thousands of lives; Plano, Texas, was already entrenched. And like many of the places caught in the crosshairs of the continuing heroin crisis, Plano is the last place that one would expect to be swept into the opioid tidal wave.

Anti-Media recently interviewed Texas-native Belita Nelson, who has had an interesting few decades.

For six years she termed herself the “chief propagandist” — or spokeswoman — for the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Before that, as a Plano mother and teacher, Belita noticed what was happening in her community. She described Plano as an area rivaling Newtown, Connecticut, or Cape Cod — tight-knit regions where tragedy strikes hard and deep.

She explained that [Plano] has the best school districts in the state of Texas…it’s a gated community. And in 1998, for heroin to be that prevalent in the community was stunning. Stunning. We got all the media attention because we were this upscale Texas neighborhood that nobody thought would be inundated with heroin.”

Nelson decided to take action, saying, I decided I’d had it. I was going to organize my community and fight this thing at the grassroots level. But we were never grassroots because the first thing I did was go on the Oprah show for the DEA.”

Belita stresses that she was never officially employed by the DEA but traveled for six years as a sort of unofficial spokeswoman for the agency.  The group recruited her because their goals aligned, and in many ways, she was perfect for the role. She was a mother who had witnessed the toll of heroin first-hand. She was passionate and knew what she was talking about. Belita spoke to schools and parent groups and appeared on television networks.

Assembly Passes Landmark Bill to Seal 800,000 Pot Convictions, Giving People a Second Chance | Galactic Connection

At a time when freedom seems to be under siege from all sides, cannabis decriminalization provides a thread of hope. Lawmakers in several states and even federal government are coming to their senses about the necessity of cannabis freedom, and in some cases are applying rationality retroactively. The state of New York, which now allows medical cannabis and has decriminalized possession of small amounts for recreational use, is set to seal the records of those who have been convicted of simple possession of cannabis…

HUGE VICTORY! Federal Court Bans Govt from Prosecuting Medical Pot Users and Growers | Stillness in the Storm

August 17th 2016 by Matt Agorist

Last week, the tyrannical DEA doubled down on their asinine and immoral decision to classify marijuana as having no medical value — promising to continue to kidnap, cage, and kill people for possessing it. However, in a major victory, and a well-deserved slap to the face of the DEA, a federal appeals court just ruled that prosecuting medical marijuana users and growers is now banned.

The Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals’ three-judge panel has ruled that the Department of Justice (DOJ) cannot spend budget money to prosecute people who grow, sell or use medical marijuana—if they comply with state law.

The 25 states who’ve found themselves subject to continuous raids — in spite of medical pot being legal — will now have solace in the fact that the DOJ can no longer throw money at the futile and immoral practice of arresting people for a plant.

By: Johann Hari

Across the world, more and more people are asking: Why is marijuana banned? Why are people still sent to prison for using or selling it?

Somebody worked it all out, in our best interest.

NPR.org 7-6-16… “After Medical Marijuana Legalized, Medicare Prescriptions Drop For Many Drugs” | Kauilapele’s Blog

This is very welcome news, from a (perhaps somewhat) main stream news source. Although part of the emphasis is about “saving money for Medicare”, it does show that even MSM (Mass Stream Medical) is getting that marijuana and it’s derivatives (oils, etc.) are a definite alternative to MSM drugs.
