When is the government going to learn that it can not police drug abuse when it is a symptom of a sick society?" - Brian M. Levine MD

"No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the sources of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed, and compassion of power." – P. J. O'Rourke

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association 700,000 people in America were admitted to emergency room care for adverse reactions to prescribed drugs in 2006.

Between 1999 and 2004 unintentional overdoses of psychotherapeutic drugs including sleeping pills, antidepressants and tranquilizers resulting in death grew 84%. From 1992 to 2003 those who admitted using prescription drugs to 'catch a buzz' nearly doubled from 7.8 million to 15.1 million. Since 1990 prescription drug sales have increased by 500%. - Centers for Disease Control

Scientists from King's College at the University of London determined in 2005 that people trying to juggle phone calls,
e-mail and other routine office distractions suffered a greater loss of IQ than someone smoking cannabis.

"If I had every problem the TV ads say I do - breathing, lifting, walking, sitting, sleeping and my toes rotting off - I'd welcome death. Right now, the FDA is considering a petition from the drug lobby to get rid of the warnings in drug ads. The Coalition for Healthcare Communication - which sounds a lot nicer than "the Pushers Union" - says that alerting people to side effects "over warns" consumers. Drug companies are pushers, and Congress and the FDA are the cop on the beat who's been paid off to look the other way. Is there anything more laughable than the thought that the FDA is protecting anything but the profit margins of pharmaceutical companies?" - Bill Maher, 4/27/06


Tree of Life by The Human Revolution

In America during the late 1800s cannabis indica was used in treating addiction.

Opiate, chloral hydrate, and alcohol addicts were successfully treated with potent cannabis extracts.

"Cannabis will one day be seen as a wonder drug. Like penicillin, herbal marijuana is remarkably nontoxic, has a wide range of therapeutic applications and would be quite inexpensive if it were legal." - Lester Grinspoon, emeritus professor of psychiatry Harvard Medical School

"In strict medical terms, marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume. Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man." - DEA Administrative Law Judge Francis L. Young

CIA war for drugs

"It's absolutely disgraceful to think of picking up a 22-year-old for smoking pot. More disgraceful is the denial of marijuana for medical purposes. I've long been in favor of legalizing all drugs. Look at the factual consequences: The harm done and the corruption created by these laws and the war on drugs." - Milton Friedman

The Flower

"And I will raise up for them a plant of renown,
and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land."
- Ezekiel 34:29 - 21st Century King James Version

"Since 1971, marijuana has been classified as a "Schedule I" narcotic, meaning it has no medical value. That's the same category as Heroin©. And as if that's not goofy enough, that also would suggest marijuana is more dangerous than crack cocaine, a Schedule II drug that no one in the sane world describes as less dangerous than pot." - Clarence Page

1972 The Shafer Report commissioned by Richard Nixon and named after former Pennsylvania Governor Raymond Shafer, concludes that "neither the marijuana user nor the drug itself can be said to constitute a danger to public safety" and urged the government to stop penalizing pot smokers for personal use or distribution.

1978 300,000 people are in American prisons for all crimes combined. Five times more tax is being spent on building schools than on building prisons.

1998 to 2008 There are 5,000,000 arrests on 'marijuana' charges.

2007 There are almost 2 million people in prison, 800,000 in jail and the penal system supports 300,000 jail guards. Federal and state spending for new schools has dwindled to less than one-fifth that of prison building expenditures.

"Drug offenders, most of them passive users or minor dealers, are swamping our prisons. 47.5% of all the drug arrests in 2007 were for marijuana offenses. Nearly 60% of the people in state prisons serving time for a drug offense have no history of violence or of any significant selling activity. Four out of five drug arrests were for possession of illegal substances, while only one in five was for sales.Three-quarters of the drug offenders in our state prisons were there for nonviolent or purely drug offenses." - Senator Jim Webb (D-Va.)

2008 More than 700,000 of the America's 20-million cannabis users are arrested for marijuana possession.

destroy all competition !!!

"Nonviolent drug use represents the largest increase in our prison population since the so-called war on drugs began under Richard Nixon. Maybe we all need to pay attention to the fact that our prisons are built and run by private corporations, and that this has been among the fastest growing, most profitable industries." - Lillian Laskin

"From the farmers' point of view, cannabis is an easy crop to grow and will yield from three to six tons per acre on nearly any land including marginal lands. Cannabis has a short growing season, so that it can be planted after other crops are in. Cannabis can be grown in any state of the union. The long roots penetrate and break the soil to leave it in perfect condition for the next year's crop. The dense shock of leaves, eight to twelve feet about the ground, chokes out weeds. Two successive crops are enough to reclaim land that has been abandoned because of Canadian thistles or quack grass." - Jack Herer

hemp facts

Hemp Harvest Protest in front of White House

"Marijuana makes up 60 to 70 percent of the Mexican drug trade and lifting prohibitions on it in the United States would eradicate a major source of funds for the cartels."- Radley Balko

"Prohibition is a drain on the public purse. Federal, state and local governments spend roughly $44 billion per year to enforce drug prohibition. These same governments forego roughly $33 billion per year in tax revenue they could collect from legalized drugs, assuming these were taxed at rates similar to those on alcohol and tobacco. Under prohibition, these revenues accrue to traffickers as increased profits." - Harvard economist Jeffrey Miron

The only true threat marijuana (cannabis, hemp, cannabis sativa, cannabis indica, cannabis ruderalis) poses is a threat to the oil, alcohol, tobacco, chemical and pharmaceutical corporations.

Utilizing marijuana for a vast array of commercial products would create a green economic revolution which would deprive these oil, alcohol, tobacco, chemical and pharmaceutical corporations of income!

Cannabis ruderalis originated in the mountainous regions northwest of the Himalayas in central Asia. Cannabis sativa grows wild in Europe, central Asia, and Asia Minor. Cannabis sativa introduced into American agriculture grows wild in Kentucky, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas as well as other many other states. Cannabis indica grows wild in India, southeast Asia and the Himalayas.

Records of hemp farming date back 5000 years in China. Hemp farming (and beer) helped raise the Pharaohs monuments in ancient Egypt. When Nomadic tribes from central Asia and Persia (Iran and Iraq), referred to in legend as "Aryans," overran virtually the entire Mediterranean spreading out over the Caucasus and west into Europe they brought cannabis, hemp, with them.

lawful versus unlawful

The first crop grown in many states was hemp.

George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew hemp.

Benjamin Franklin owned one of the first hemp paper mills in America.

From 1631 to the early 1800's it was legal to pay taxes with hemp.

From 1763 to 1769 it was against the law in Virginia to refuse to grow hemp.

The War of 1812 was fought over hemp.

Napoleon Bonaparte wanted to cut off Moscow's export of hemp to England in an attempt to de-rig the English Navy. (Hemp sails and rigging had to replaced every two years. Hemp sails and rigging cost five times the wood in a newly commissioned ship!)

90% of all ships' sails and rope were made from hemp for thousands of years. The word 'canvas' is Dutch for cannabis. 80% of all textiles, fabrics, clothes, linen, drapes, bed sheets, etc. were made from hemp until the 1820s with the introduction of the cotton gin.

The first Bibles, maps, charts, Betsy Ross's flag, the first drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America were made from hemp. 1850 was a peak year for Kentucky which produced 40,000 tons. Hemp was the largest cash crop until the 20th century. Until the 1880's all schoolbooks were made from hemp or flax. Rembrants, Gainsboroughs, Van Goghs as well as most early canvas paintings were principally painted on hemp linen.

In 1916, the federal government predicted that by the 1940s all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees would need to be cut down. Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp fiber equals 4.1 acres of tree fiber.

"Quality paints and varnishes were made from hemp seed oil until 1937. 58,000 tons of hemp seeds were used in America for paint products in 1935." - Sherman Williams Paint Comapany testimony before Congress against the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act.

The first Model-T built by Henry Ford ran on hemp oil gasoline and body parts were constructed from hemp. Henry Ford created hemp plastic panels that had an impact strength 10 times stronger than steel. Henry Ford grew his own hemp.

Hemp was the first cash crop in America to exceed a billion dollars in value in a year. United States Department of Agriculture Bulletin #404 concluded that hemp produces 4 times as much pulp with at least 4 to 7 times less pollution than wood pulp.

In 1942 the United States Department of Agriculture produced a 14-minute film, 'Hemp for Victory', encouraging and instructing 'patriotic American farmers' to grow 350,000 acres of hemp each year for the war effort.

In 1937, DuPont patented the processes to make plastic and plastic fibers from oil and coal. These process' had been taken from the Germans as World War I war reparations. The DuPont Annual Report urged stockholders to invest in its new petrochemical division. Synthetics such as plastics, cellophane, celluloid, methanol, nylon, rayon, Dacron, etc., could now be made from oil. Natural hemp agricultural industrialization would have ruined over 80% of Dupont business.

William Randolph Hearst and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing Division of Kimberly Clark owned vast acreage of timberlands. The Hearst Company supplied most paper products.

William Randolf Hearst and Harry Jacob Anslinger

Andrew William Mellon became Herbert Hoover's Secretary of the Treasury and DuPont's primary investor. Andrew William Mellon appointed his future nephew-in-law, Harry Jacob Anslinger, to head the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. Harry Jacob Anslinger, head of the Drug Commission for 31 years, promoted the idea that marihuana made users act extremely violent.

From 1917 to 1928, Anslinger worked for various military and police organizations. Harry Jacob Anslinger is widely credited for shaping not only America's domestic and international drug policies, but for having influence on drug polices of other nations, particularly those that had not debated the issues internally. The Federal Bureau of Narcotics, like the Bureau of Prohibition, was under the auspices of the US Treasury Department as at that time the trade of alcohol and drugs was considered a loss of revenue because as illegal substances they could not be taxed.
Anslinger did not consider marijuana a serious threat to American society. In the fourth year of his tenure an anti-marijuana campaign aimed at alarming the public became his primary focus as part of the government's broader push to outlaw all drugs.

Members of the League of Nations had already implemented restrictions for marijuana in the beginning of the 1930s.

marihuanareefer madness

"Marihuana is the most violence causing drug in the history of mankind."
Harry J. Anslinger

Films like 'Reefer Madness' (1936), 'Marihuana: Assassin of Youth' (1935) and 'Marihuana: The Devil's Weed' (1936) were propaganda designed by Hearst and DuPont corporations to the American people that cannabis was evil and hemp should be outlawed simply to increase tree fiber and plastic fiber sales. DuPont petrochemical interests and William Randolph Hearst lumber interests together created the highly sensational anti-marijuana campaign to eliminate hemp as an industrial competitor.The plutocracy jumped on board understanding that all the products derived from hemp could be replaced by cheaper less-suitable synthetic products that promised windfall profits even while destroying ecosystems. Marihuana was portrayed as a violent narcotic which caused acts of shocking violence and incurable insanity with soul-destroying effects.

A media blitz of 'yellow journalism' raged in the late 1920s and 1930s. William Randolph Hearst's newspapers ran stories claiming "marihuana" use created everything from car accidents to loose morality - white women would be seduced by "jazz and darkies" - to mass murder.

"Through a report released in 1983 under the Freedom of Information Act, it was discovered (after 40 years of secrecy) that Anslinger was appointed in 1942 to a top-secret committee to create a "truth serum" for the Office of Strategic Service (OSS), which evolved into the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Anslinger and his spy group picked, as America's first truth serum, "honey oil", a much purer, almost tasteless form of hash oil made from cannabis sativa, to be administered in food to spies, saboteurs, military prisoners and the like, to make them unwittingly "spill the truth." Fifteen months later marijuana extracts were discontinued by Anslinger's group as America's first truth serum because it was noted that they didn't work all the time. The people being interrogated would often giggle or laugh hysterically at their captors, get paranoid, or have insatiable desires for food . Also, the report noted that American OSS agents and other interrogation groups started using the honey oil illegally themselves. In Anslinger's OSS group's final report on marijuana as a truth serum, there was no mention of violence caused by the drug! In fact, the opposite was indicated." - Jack Herer

In the 1950s, under the communist threat voiced by McCarthy, Harry J. Anslinger now said the exact opposite. Marijuana will pacify you so much that soldiers would not want to fight the communists. This extreme passivism was proved wrong empirically in Vietnam.

1837 fiasco

On April 14, 1937, the prohibitive Marihuana Tax Law bill that outlawed hemp was directly brought to the House Ways and Means Committee. The Chairman of the Ways and Means, Robert Doughton a Dupont stockholder and a close associate of DuPont, assured passage.

According to John J. Coleman,"For a number of years Congress wanted to regulate marihuana but members were concerned that the Constitution did not provide sufficient authority to regulate a substance that could be - and was - grown and distributed within states. Congress therefore settled on a "tax" act because the Constitution provided the federal Congress with the unlimited power to levy and collect taxes." Congress passed the tax act during a period of exponential growth in the federal government as a part of its socialist/communist plans to remake American social culture.

"I wish I could show you what a small marihuana cigarette can do to one of our degenerate Spanish-speaking residents. That's why our problem is so great; the greatest percentage of our population is composed of Spanish speaking persons most of whom are low mentally, because of social and racial conditions." - Federal Bureau of Narcotics Commissioner Harry J. Anslinger testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee

Dr. James Woodward, a physician and attorney, testified too late on behalf of the American Medical Association. Dr. James Woodward told the committee that the reason the AMA had not denounced the Marihuana Tax Law sooner was that the Association had just discovered that marihuana was hemp.

There is no scientific evidence for the theory that marijuana is a “gateway” drug. The cannabis-using cultures in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America show no propensity for other drugs. The gateway theory took hold in the sixties, when marijuana became the leading new recreational drug. It was refuted by events in the eighties, when cocaine abuse exploded at the same time marijuana use declined.

In 1974, California Governor Ronald Reagan hired Robert G. Heath to asphyxiate Rhesus monkeys. In his report, Robert G. Heath concluded that Rhesus monkeys, smoking the equivalent of 30 joints a day (!), brains began to atrophy and die after 90 days [that's 2700 joints, or an average of 1.25 doobies per hour 24 hours a day, for 90 days!]

In 1980, Playboy and NORML finally received for the first time -- after six years of requests and suing the government -- an accurate accounting of the research procedures used in the famous report:

Rhesus monkeys were strapped into a chair and then strapped into gas masks and given the equivalent of 63 Colombian strength joints in "five minutes, thru the gas masks" losing no smoke. The monkeys inhaled large amounts of carbon monoxide due to the burning of 63 joints in five minutes. Carbon monoxide is a deadly gas that kills brain cells and is given off by any burning object. All researchers found the marijuana findings in Heath's experiment to be of no value, because carbon monoxide poisoning and other factors involved were totally left out of the report. The Heath Monkey study was actually a study in animal asphyxiation and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Many critics still cite the notorious monkey studies of Dr. Robert G. Heath, which purported to find brain damage in three monkeys that had been heavily dosed with cannabis. This work was never replicated and has since been discredited by a pair of better controlled, much larger monkey studies, one by Dr. William Slikker of the National Center for Toxicological Research and the other by Charles Rebert and Gordon Pryor of SRI International. Neither found any evidence of physical alteration in the brains of monkeys exposed to daily doses of pot for up to a year. Human studies of heavy users in Jamaica and Costa Rica found no evidence of abnormalities in brain physiology.


Index Of Pre-1937 MEDICAL

"We cannot understand yet, Mr. Chairman, why this bill should have been prepared in secret for two years without any intimation, even to the profession, that it was being prepared." - Dr. James Woodward

"Woodward and the AMA, however, objected to Anslinger's characterization of cannabis as causing severe psychiatric reactions. It was probably a reasonable criticism under the circumstances. Anslinger, after all, was not trained in medicine or psychiatry, yet he often used clinical descriptions of bizarre behavior that he attributed to the use of drugs." - John J. Coleman

"The scheme of the Marihuana Tax Act was threefold: a requirement that all manufacturers, importers, dealers, and practitioners register and pay a special occupational tax; a requirement that all transactions be accomplished through use of written order forms; and the imposition of a tax on all transfers in the amount of $1 per ounce for transfer to registered persons and a prohibitive $100 per ounce for transfers to unregistered persons.

The seemingly bizarre legal formulation of this tax measure was precipitated by the recognized need for the federal government to take action forbidden to it under prevailing constitutional doctrine.

Hearings on the proposed marihuana taxation were held before the House Ways and Means Committee. During five mornings of testimony by FBN officials, government witnesses, and industry representatives, the Bureau presented the following four-fold argument: (1) marihuana was a disastrous drug; (2) its use was increasing alarmingly and had generated public hysteria; (3) state legislation was incapable of meeting the threat posed by the drug, thus, federal action was required; and (4) the government might best act through separate legislation rather than through an amendment to the Harrison Act.

No definite scientific study of the effects of marihuana was presented to substantiate the position that marihuana was a dangerous drug. No synthesis of available scientific information was submitted nor was there any statement by the Public Health Service. Neither of the government's own public health experts, Assistant Surgeon General, Dr. Walter Treadway, and Dr. Lawrence Kolb, testified, nor did Drs. Walter Bromberg or J. F. Siler who had recently published scientific articles on the effects of cannabis in humans." - National Commission on Marihuana and Drug Abuse

{This marks the begining of the period in which doctors came to believe that pharmaceutical concoctions could cure all the ills of humanity. Once the doctors fell for the pharmaceutical marketing machine the people joined the march - goose stepping into place.}

"Marijuana was America's number-one analgesic for 60 years before the rediscovery of aspirin around 1900. From 1842 to 1900, cannabis made up half of all medicine sold, with virtually no fear of its high. There are more than 60 therapeutic compounds in cannabis that are healing agents in medical and herbal treatments." - Jack Herer

Few people, at the time, realized that the deadly menace they had been reading about on William Randolph Hearst's front pages was in fact passive hemp. The American Medical Association understood cannabis to be a MEDICINE found in numerous healing products sold over the last hundred years throughout America.

cannabis jury nullification

The American Medical Association on November 10, 2009 urged the federal government to reconsider its classification of marijuana as a dangerous drug with no accepted medical use.

In 2008 the American College of Physicians called for rigorous scientific evaluation of the potential therapeutic benefits of medical marijuana and an evidence-based review of marijuana's status as a Schedule I controlled substance.

The California Medical Association passed resolutions that declared the criminalization of marijuana a failed public health policy and called on the organization to take part in the debate on changing current policy.

In September of 1937, hemp became illegal. The most useful crop known became a dangerous narcotic. And the people and ecology of the Earth has been suffering ever since. The ecological damage visited upon the Earth and its inhabitants may be irreversible. Earth is suffocating as large tracts of rain forests disappear. Pollution, poisons and chemicals are destroying ecosystems, killing people and animals - fish, fowl and furred. These great problems could be reversed if we industrialized hemp agriculture and replaced fossil fuel based products with products derived from hemp.

Hemp has a higher quality fiber than wood fiber. Far fewer caustic chemicals are required to make paper from hemp than from trees. Natural biomass could provide much of the Earth's energy needs currently being supplied by fossil fuels. Humans have consumed 80% of the Earth's oil and gas reserves. We need a renewable resource. Hemp could be the solution to soaring gas prices.

Books printed on wood cellulose acid paper must be frequently replaced. Hemp paper does not turn yellow and is very durable. Books last for centuries rather than decades.

Hemp grows quickly to maturity in a season where trees take a lifetime. Hemp plastics are biodegradable! Oil-based plastics do not break down in a human lifetime!

Medicine can be made from cannabis as it was before being outlawed! (No need of anti-depressants or sleep aids!)

The hemp seed contains one of the highest sources of protein in nature as well as two essential fatty acids, not found anywhere else in nature, that clean your body of cholesterol! (No need of Lipitor, Crestor or Zocor.)

Hemp clothing is extremely strong and durable! (That could hurt the cotton clothing industry!)
The alcohol, chemically engineered tobacco and oil companies fund a Partnership for a Drug-Free America and other similar agencies. The latest anti-cannabis commercials say: 'If you buy a joint ... you are promoting terrorism!' What they are really funding is a Partnership for an America free of all drugs but theirs!

In the entire history of the human race, not one death can be attributed to cannabis. Chemically engineered tobacco killed 5.4 million people in 2008. About 85,000 deaths - injuries, homicides, suicides and a range of diseases - in America in 2008 were linked to drinking alcohol.

Ingesting hemp or cannabis has a positive effect - relieving asthma; relieving glaucoma; reducing many types of tumors; is the best treatment for many types of epilepsy; the best muscle relaxant, back spasm medicine and general antispasmodic medication; cannabidiols have antibiotic uses; as a topical analgesic in the treatment of arthritis, herpes, cystic fibrosis and rheumatism; the best natural expectorant; lowers blood pressure, dilates the arteries and reduces body temperature an average of one-half degree, thereby relieving stress and migraine headaches; and alleviating nausea while increasing appetite. Cannabidiol, cannabis sativa, is the best treatment for other neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. The National Institute of Mental Health reported that marijuana smoke is the only medicine we currently know of on Earth that can fully stop the brain damage after a stroke occurs, (1) by causing the arteries to enlarge and allowing virtually any clot to flow harmlessly through the brain and (2) by stopping the production of glutamate, which poisons and kills brain cells after the blood clot is in place. One puff of 'ditch weed' from Iowa will stop the aftereffects of 95% of all strokes, virtually ending paralysis, speech loss and coma resulting from strokes. Unfortunately the positive effects of ingesting hemp also reduces medical services income thus the endless hate and propaganda filled with vitriol!

Cannabinoids naturally occur in every living animal on the planet above hydra and mollusks, with the exception of insects. Are you an insect? Contrary to propaganda cannabinoids increase brain function and thus awareness as the human brain is designed with cannabinoid receptors - cannabinoids which are only found in quantity in cannabis (they also frequent chocolate hahahahhahaha ). The Creator and Sustainer designed humans and, unlike, the Demiurge, everything crafted by the Creator and Sustainer is perfect. (May not be perfect in the eyes of the creation because all creations wish to take the place of the Creator and Sustainer. hahahahhahaha )

If you do not believe this then let me ask:

Why has cannabis been banned from all competitive sports as a performance enhancing drug?

legalize cannabis now

In 2005 the United States State Department estimated that American cannibis cultivation was 10,000 metric tons or 22 million pounds. In 2006 it was estimated that the cash value of the cannibis crop was $35.8 billion which exceeded the cash value of corn, soybeans and hay.

In California in 2006 they only had to uproot 1.7 million plants found in 447 raids in 34 counties.

In California in 2007 they only had to uproot 1.8 million plants.

In California in 2008 they only had to uproot 1.9 million plants, 70% grown on public lands.

In California in 2009 they only had to uproot 4.4 million plants, mostly grown by Mexican cartels.

2009 was a bumper crop year!

cannabis prohibition

cannabis in religion
- from The Emperor Wears No Clothes by Jack Herer

"Early man experimented with all plant materials that he could chew and could not have avoided discovering the properties of cannabis (marijuana), for in his quest for seeds and oil, he certainly ate the sticky tops of the plant. Upon eating hemp, the euphoric, ecstatic and hallucinatory aspects may have introduced man to the other-worldly plane from which emerged religious beliefs, perhaps even the concept of deity. The plant became accepted as a special gift of the gods, a sacred medium for communion with the spiritual world and as such it has remained in some cultures to the present."- Richard Evans Schultes

"No other plant has been with humans as long as hemp. It is most certainly one of humanity's oldest cultural objects. Wherever it was known, it was considered a functional, healing, inebriating, and aphrodisiac plant. Through the centuries, myths have arisen about this mysterious plant and its divine powers. Entire generations have revered it as sacred.... The power of hemp has been praised in hymns and prayers."- Christian Ratsch

the CIA and drugs

"The CIA's a bureaucracy which feeds on itself, and those involved are constantly sitting around thinking up schemes for [foreign] intervention which will win them promotions and justify further additions to the staff. It self-generates interventions that otherwise never would be thought of, let alone authorized." - Senator Frank Church

A pattern has become apparent in regimes installed or supported by the CIA. Nearly every regime seems to derive a portion of its cash flow from the distribution of narcotics. There is always someone very close to the installed puppet, a relative, that seems to heavily involved in a narcotics supply network. In China Chiang Kai-shek and his brother-in-law T.V. Soong; in Mexico Luis Echeverría Álvarez and his brother-in-law Rubén Zuno Arce; in Iran Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi and his twin sister Ashraf Pahlavi; in Vietnam Ngô dình Diem and his brother Ngô dình Nhu; in Afghanistan Hamid Karzai and his brother Ahmed Wali Karzai. In the absence of a popular base for externally installed puppets external funds are needed for political repression. The American presence in Afghanistan was weakened initially by its dependence on a drug-trafficking Tajik-Uzbek minority coalition - the Northern Alliance. The CIA's principal ally was Ahmad Shah Massoud of the Northern Alliance was a drug trafficker.

"Since 2002, the prosecution of the war in Afghanistan ‘at all levels' has been based on an implied strategy of attrition via clearing operations virtually identical to those pursued in Vietnam. In Vietnam, they were dubbed "search and destroy missions;" in Afghanistan they are called "clearing operations" and "compound searches," but the purpose is the same, to find easily replaced weapons or clear a tiny, arbitrarily chosen patch of worthless ground for a short period, and then turn it over to indigenous security forces who can't hold it, and then go do it again somewhere else." - Thomas Johnson

When the CIA began supporting the Laotian Phoumi Nosavan in 1959 they saw opium traffic as an alternative source of income for Phoumi Nosavan's government. This decision ultimately led to the growth of northwest Laos as one of the largest heroin-producing centers in the world in the late 1960s. The CIA not only supported General Ouan Rattikone (Phoumi's successor) and his drug-funded army, it supplied airplanes for opium transportation and intervened militarily with air support in a battle over a contested opium caravan in Laos. Conversely, when the US withdrew from Laos in the 1970s, opium production plummeted, from an estimated 200 tons in 1975 to 30 tons in 1984. A Senate staff report has estimated "that $500 billion to $1 trillion in criminal proceeds are laundered through banks worldwide each year, with about half of that amount moved through United States banks." The London Independent reported in 2004 that drug trafficking constitutes "the third biggest global commodity in cash terms after oil and the arms trade." Washington and the mass media have portrayed the U.S. in the forefront of the struggle against narco trafficking, drug laundering and political corruption: the image is of clean white hands fighting dirty money from the Third world (or the ex-Communist countries). The truth is exactly the opposite. U.S. banks have developed a highly elaborate set of policies for transferring illicit funds to the U.S., investing those funds in legitimate businesses or U.S. government bonds and legitimating them. The U.S. Congress has held numerous hearings, provided detailed exposés of the illicit practices of the banks, passed several laws and called for stiffer enforcement by any number of public regulators and private bankers. Yet the biggest banks continue their practices, the sums of dirty money grows exponentially, because both the State and the banks have neither the will nor the interest to put an end to the practices that provide high profits and buttress an otherwise fragile empire. In the wake of the 2008 economic crisis, this analysis found support from the claim of Antonio Maria Costa, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, that "Drugs money worth billions of dollars kept the financial system afloat at the height of the global crisis." According to the London Observer, Costa said he has seen evidence that the proceeds of organised crime were "the only liquid investment capital" available to some banks on the brink of collapse last year. He said that a majority of the $352bn (£216bn) of drugs profits was absorbed into the economic system as a result... Costa said evidence that illegal money was being absorbed into the financial system was first drawn to his attention by intelligence agencies and prosecutors around 18 months ago. "In many instances, the money from drugs was the only liquid investment capital. In the second half of 2008, liquidity was the banking system's main problem and hence liquid capital became an important factor," he said. As I have observed elsewhere about the U.S. campaign against the FARC and cocaine in Colombia, the aim of all U.S. anti drug campaigns abroad has never been the hopeless ideal of eradication. The aim of all such campaigns has been to alter market share: to target specific enemies and thus ensure that the drug traffic remains under the control of those traffickers who are allies of the state security apparatus and/or the CIA. This was notably true of Laos" - Peter Dale Scott

the Golden Triangle

Following the effective suppression of the heroin© trade in America during World War II and the subsequent decision to stamp out opium growing by Turkey — which had been one of the main sources of raw opium — organized crime in both America and Europe collaborated in a wide-ranging conspiracy to establish new centers of opium production, heroin© refining and distribution in Southeast Asia; these collaborations were greatly facilitated by the Central Intelligence Agency and by the unstable political situation created by the ongoing Vietnam War. During the First Indochina War (1947-1954), the French SDECE military intelligence agency was in need of money for its covert operations. Its officers contacted opium producers in the Golden Triangle, and set up an international system of smuggling, the French Connection, aided by intelligence and other aid from SDECE. The "French Connection" conspiracy arose from an alliance between the Corsican Mafia, who had an historical presence in South Vietnam dating back to the French occupation, and leading members of the American and Sicilian Mafia, under the leadership of Lucky Luciano, who had been imprisoned in the U.S. during World War II for racketeering, but was asked to provide assistance to American military intelligence about Axis infiltration of the waterfront in American ports (which was effectively controlled by the Mafia), as well as assisting Allied forces in their invasion of Sicily and Italy. He reportedly used his contacts in the Sicilian Mafia to assist U.S. forces by gathering intelligence and identifying both fascist collaborators and Socialist/Communist elements in the Italian resistance movement, who were then systematically eliminated. In return for his assistance, Luciano was covertly permitted to run his crime operations from prison, and at the end of the war he was deported back to Sicily, where he immediately began a major expansion of his drug operations, forging alliances with Corsican Mafia members in South Vietnam and organized crime figures in other countries, including Australia.

"American involvement had gone far beyond coincidental complicity; embassies had covered up involvement by client governments, CIA contract airlines had carried opium, and individual CIA agents had winked at the opium traffic. As an indirect consequence of American involvement in the Golden Triangle until 1972, opium production steadily increased. Southeast Asia's Golden Triangle grew 70 percent of the world's illicit opium, supplied an estimated 30 percent of America's heroin©, and was capable of supplying the United States with unlimited quantities of heroin© for generations to come." - Alfred W. McCoy

The CIA recruited drug lords in Burma in 1950 in operations against China and was involved in drug trafficking from 1965 to 1975 in Laos and through the 1980s in Afghanistan, supporting for example the drug and warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, leader of the Hezbi-i Islami guerilla group. CIA controlled banks have been involved with money laundering activities. Castle Bank was replaced by the Nugan Hand Bank, who had as legal council William Colby, retired head of the CIA.

"The boom in the Pakistan drug trade was financed by BCCI."- Alfred W. McCoy

This web site is not a commercial web site
and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a “hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking system, mass media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
