      Just a thought!
      To think that the Federal Gov. as a hole would give serious thought to the cannabis lobby without the Heads of the World doing something on a grand scale,is getting to be the norm. Ignoring the Potheads in hope’s that we’ll go away. Well I for one am one of the flower children of the 60’s who fears termination from my job, so no longer can I sit down and toke with my friends and relax and have a painless high,my high’s come from beer and wine,which everyone knows is usually accompanied by hangover’ or headaches.
      Truth is,I don’t have to drink,I would much rather smoke a doobie,but as we all know,the Federal Gov has chosen prohibition and incarceration over free will.
      I’m probably not the first one to suggest a boycott on such a scale,but if all the heads Globally and our sympathysers were to avoid purchasing alcohol for a week or two,don’t you think it might just expose the real size and scope of the cannabis community.
      I really miss the good feelin that a buzz affords,and quite honestly alcohol is taking a toll on my 60 year old body,honestly!

      Did you catch the statement from the President’s message on TV Thursday night? Corporations are the true owners of our Country, he declared. If that’s the case then you can forget reasoning through prohibition. They want you sober 100% at work and at home. Mean while you’ll hear that they can get high anytime they want cause they never take a drug test as business owners! If your not a business owner, prohibition might get the best of you over a long period of time. Get a successful business now!

    6. All we are missing now is a Cannabis Network. The true “CNN” Cannabis News Network. Until then there’s our daily blog http://bit.ly/q7UL9Q and WeedMaps .tv http://bit.ly/iNHx2J

      Hey Norml– off topic but when you post the news stories at the bottom of the page can you start printing the whole link for the original article instead of just linking to the site where you found it? It’s a little annoying to keep coming back here to check article titles….
