These words are not written to ignore some of the real heroes who help activist without adequate funds. Some are very generous, to whom I give thanks. For example, Paul Stanford's The Hemp And Cannabis Foundation must be over-stretched by now since he's been helping hemp activists since the 1970's, so much so that I am confident we would not have opened one club door without he and his family's heroic work. Paul even helped Jack Herer get his book THE EMPEROR WEARS NO CLOTHES into print. If you are a dispensary you should subscribe to his THCF clinic service, as well as check out his on line show Cannabis Common Sense. I'm certain he could either use your support or help direct you to activists and artists in need.
The drug war as an oppression tool is not new. Our government has been involved in truly stupid policies for a long time. They have even jailed folks for having a book. Jailed for a book or jailed for a plant is the same thing, evil. Samuel Green's slavery days of persecution for having a copy of the book Uncle Tom's Cabin (yes, he was jailed for having a copy of the book) has been replaced by the modern war on the hemp plant.
