      Think back people, do your research….Maybe the former governor of georgia had a good idea afterall.

      Everyone could create a new company of their own which makes axe handles….inscribe one side with:

      “END MARIJUANA PROHIBITION IN 2012?

      Inscribe the opposite side with:

      “END GOVERNMENT SCOUNDRALISM AND GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION”
      REVOLUTION IS NEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      WALK LIKE AN EGYPTIAN IN 2012!!!

      Create jobs for americans making axe handles.
      Donate 50% of all sales to Presidential campaign funds specifically for Gary Johnson or Ron Paul………….
      a good design note for the product may be to drill a 3/4? dia. hole x 9? deep for filling with lead.

      SPEAKING ON TERMS OF TRANSCENDENTIAL MEDITATION…
      Maybe Mr. Smith and the other ignorant and unjustifiable cronies of such should just step aside to make it easy on themselves.

      Everyone just go meditate at a certain given time, that Mr. Smith and all his likewise cronies as such, will fall from their position due to their profound denial of the will of the people and that we the people no longer have a need for those who obstruct the free will of the people.

      MEDITATION START TIME for everyone will be July 1, 2011 upon arisal or just after breakfast that morning.

      I’m willing to try anything that works,
      It’s time for a change people.

      Yes, this old victim of a 1977 police brutality issue wants some long overdue justice. Brutalized by a metal flashlight, skull cracked open and all due to false charges which were later dropped. That’s all the compensation I ever got. Dropped charges. This happened a short time before the RODNEY KING POLICE BRUTALITY CASE EMERGED. Just in case anyone wondered.
      Yes..I said “Government scumbags and government dirtbags”.

      Now take out the BS medical part and you got something worth seeing.

      (PAUL)

      3 QUESTIONS:

      1) What would NORML’s role be if marijuana became legalized and are you willing to accept that role?

      2) Why is such a high number of medical marijuana users between the ages of 18-25 years of age?

      3) What is this new found disease state that seemingly effects this very young and historically healthy segment of the population.

      [Paul Armentano responds: Donna, this conversation is already well past old. If you dislike NORML so much why do you spend so much time posting on this page?

      < <1) What would NORML's role be if marijuana became legalized and are you willing to accept that role?>>

      I don’t know Donna, but it would arguably be a much larger role than it is now, as legal industries (Think pharma, oil, alcohol, telecom, etc.) have far bigger lobbies than NORML can even dream of.

      As for your other questions, why don’t you direct them at the consumers themselves. I don’t claim to speak for them, though no doubt this same age populations consumes quite a large percentage of other legal prescription medications (Adderall, Prozac, Xanax, etc) , so why do you find it surprising that they also take cannabis?]

      Just a comment on the 11′ show … I/we gad a booth in S.F last year which by far was much better than this years. VIP passes for $100.00 ??? The “215” outdoor area is so crowded that walking is a feat !
      We also had a booth this year, but after spending about a 1/2 a day on Saturday…we left and offered it to the vendor in the next one. A COMPLETE WASTE OF MY TIME & MONEY !!! H.T is a just a money-making business !!!!
      MOST OF THE “PATIENTS” in attendance looked as though they need adult supervision !!! KIDS !!!
      I won’t be participating in, or attending another H.T event….EVER !!!

      Wow, some times I read these comments and it makes me shake my head..Take it from a Guy in Missouri, you have it good in Cali. Gerry sorry it didnt work for you, but it looks like it worked well for others, it was packed, that’s a win…..And H.T.is a company that has a payroll to meet…. sadly there are many things in life that are not straight forward. We live in the world of the pill, to help you sleep, to help you relax, to make the pain less and the pill list goes on. The youth of our nation have always been big at looking for alternative… You may disagree, but when climbing to the top of a mountain, you grab hold of areas that let you advance in that climb..its been a 40 year climb with many an odd route, lets not fall now.
