Support The National Criminal Justice Act of 2009!
Quote:Support The National Criminal Justice Act of 2009!

Congressmen Jim Webb (D-VA) and Arlen Specter (R-PA), along with fifteen co-sponsors, have introduced legislation in the US Senate to critically evaluate America's drugs and prisons policies.

The bill, Senate Bill 714, the National Criminal Justice Commission Act of 2009, is now before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

As introduced, the proposal would establish a blue-ribbon commission to "undertake a comprehensive review of the criminal justice system; make findings related to current Federal and State criminal justice policies and practices; and make reform recommendations for the President, Congress, and State governments to improve public safety, cost-effectiveness, overall prison administration, and fairness in the implementation of the Nation's criminal justice system."

Specifically, the Commission will examine "current drug policy and its impact on incarceration, crime and violence, sentencing, and reentry programs, [including] an analysis of the general availability of drugs in our society, the impact and effectiveness of current policies on reducing that availability and on the incidence of crime, and in the case of criminal offenders, the availability of drug treatment programs before, during, and after incarceration."

Writing this past weekend in Parade Magazine, Sen. Webb stated: "Drug offenders, most of them passive users or minor dealers, are swamping our prisons. ... Justice statistics ... show that 47.5% of all the drug arrests in our country in 2007 were for marijuana offenses."

"America's criminal justice system has deteriorated to the point that it is a national disgrace. Its irregularities and inequities cut against the notion that we are a society founded on fundamental fairness. ... It is incumbent on our national leadership to find a way to fix our prison system."

Senate Bill 714 seeks to re-evaluate America's multi-decade long 'do drugs, do time' mentality. Please take time today to urge your senator to support Senate Bill 714. If your senator sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, then it is especially important that he or she hears from you. For your convenience, a prewritten letter will be e-mailed to your member of Congress when you visit here:

After you have written your senator, please take a moment to write or call Sen. Webb and thank him for raising this important issue. You may contact him here.

Every bit of pressure on them can't be a bad thing.....

Did you guys know that if you that if you take marijuana, combine it with isopropyl alcohol you can make it into an OIL. I wonder if we put some research into that if it could be used for say our automobiles. It would be a much better use for it than to smoke it!!

Yes, hemp oil is a good source for fuel. However, taking it from the buds is not the source for it. That way will give you a cure for cancer depending on the extraction method.

The non-psychoactive hemp plants can be used for food, fuel, paper, clothing, rope and to make most other petroleum oil products.

The female plant can be used to cure many kinds of cancer, insomnia and many mental problems. Not to mention it opens your mind and breaks down mental conditioning and programming.

And oh yeah, it helps people get along nicely with each other....

Seems obvious to me why TPTB don't want it to be made legal or at least to be used.

So lets stop talking about it and get it legalized, so that we may start building weather proofed greenhouses that are operated by wind and solar energy. Also in doing this would create many new jobs!!!

I don't know about you, but I have been working to get it legalized or decriminalized or any improvement from what it is now for a good long time. NORML has been working towards it for the longest and deserves support.

However, given the conspiratorial view I have of the country and world, I don't think it has a snowball's chance in hell of being changed. It would upset the applecart too much as well as wake up more peeps to the fact that they are slaves and don't know it.
Won't happen but I will continue to fight for it anyway.

You don't "combine" the weed with the isopropyl. You rinse, or wash the crytals off the surface of the buds by pouring it over the weed and letting it drain below.
The isoproply is then evapourated away. Don't use a stove to do this, you risk fire or explosion. An electric frypan on low heat works well and more safely. The
non-stick surface also makes cleanup easier.


For the best results, freeze your weed first. This freezes the clorophyl in the vegetable matter so that it's not removed from the buds along with the crystals. Otherwise
the second or third wash will turn your oil green.

I would boil a big pot of water beforehand and after "washing" the bud onto a plate Id put the plate over the pot of hot water(with the stove, off of course) until all the alcohol evaporated and all that was left was the goodness.
It worked nicely. The electric frying pan idea sounds pretty good too.

Dont ya just love the science of it all? So many ways and methods of doing great things with simple elements.
