Hemp Activist and “Truthers” Unite

Commentary, News // Nov 4 2011

Bob Tuskin

After 11 years, The Florida Hemp Fest is back with a new twist.

Dennis “Murli” Watkins, who served four months of jail time for orchestrating a “doobie toss” at the event in 1994, is bringing back what used to be an annual celebration of marijuana and a protest for its legalization.-Gainesville Sun

Murli just so happens to be a supporter of the “truth”.

When we were contacted by him to set up a table and to give a talk on various topics such as the Federal Reserve, fluoride, and 9/11 we gladly accepted.

Watkins said this year’s edition will touch on other, even more controversial issues than legalizing pot.

“Hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years. Here it is almost 2012, and we’re still fighting this same stupid battle,” he said. “9/11 was an inside job and they’re worried about someone smoking a doobie. They’ve got to get their priorities in order.”

Watkins said there will be a “9/11 truth booth” set up at the event, which will be held on the city’s Bo Diddley Community Plaza downtown. .-Gainesville Sun

Lets be blunt, no pun intended, The hemp/cannabis movement has always gone hand in hand with the type of information we cover on a daily basis.

While you obviously do not have to get high to “wake up,” I think that it is pretty well documented that the powers that shouldn’t be do not like marijuana for many different reasons, namely the fact that it may inspire thinking outside the box.

Cathy O’Brien, a noted mind control whistle blower, once stated that her handlers allowed her to consume alcohol, coke, and pills but refused to let her smoke cannabis because it’s potential deprogramming effects that could possibly allow her to go beyond the trauma based mind control that was used to control her.

Terrance McKenna understood this

You all know the basic pitch for hemp, and I wouldn’t be what I am if it weren’t for cannabis. And I want to see it legalized… although I’m very, very skeptical. I don’t think the people who want it legalized have fairly confronted what it really is. The argument is two-fold as I understand it for legalizing hemp. Number one, a lot of money could be made off all of these wonderful cloths and products and lubricants, medicines and so forth… And the other argument relates to it’s psycho activity. And the argument made there is “it’s no big deal, it’s no big deal.” Well, I actually think it is somewhat of a big deal, and I think the people who don’t want it legalized see it that way

He goes on to say…

Cultures are shaped by the drugs that they take and that they suppress. We are a sugar, red meat, and alcohol culture primarily with tobacco to shore all that up. Think for a minute about a drug like coffee, caffeine. Every labor contract in Western civilization contains a clause which secures the worker’s right to halt the assembly line twice a day, to fuel up on a drug known to cause liver damage and all kinds of problems. Well now, why isn’t there a cannabis break?

The reason is, that caffeine perfectly fits in to a program that would have you busily screwing widgits onto wonkets and moving them along the assembly line. In other words, it promotes capitalist values. Performing repetitious tasks in a state of sort of glazed acceptance. Cannabis, on the other hand… what is always said about it? Makes you inefficient, lazy, uninterested in earning your Mercedes and your house…

So I think that if we could… I’m very interested in this cannabis thing, I think it may be the wedge through which we can push the whole psychedelic agenda. But I guarantee you if it’s legalized it will be a tremendous big deal. Because cannabis promotes feminist values, anti-capitalist values, values that promote introspection rather than manic social values of the sort that you see alcohol promoting. It would make an immense change in the architecture of the culture.

Bottom line, we need to reach out and wake people up from all backgrounds and frankly “Hemp supporters” may be a plausible addition to the “movement”.

Obviously, cannabis can be used to escape, and believe me, the corporate media does do all they can  to reinforce that negative stereotype.

The festival is sure to attract all sorts of people considering how big of a part cannabis plays in pop culture today.

Hopefully we can wake up a few of the Harold and Kumars’s attending.

I will be posting the Video of my talk, on 11/6/11 here

    If anyone is interested, Summer of Justice 2012 DC also unites the truth about 9/11 with ending marijuana prohibition, along with many other wise and much needed political changes you will likely agree with. Just Google: “summer of justice 2012 dc”.

    I worked two years to free the weed and one SHOULD NOT MIX this in with OWS. It is an ill thought out thing to do and borders on stupid. he should be asked to drop marijuana activism while anywhere near OWS. In any war of bullets or justice, you do NOT encourage the enemy to reinforce their position of defiance. Do not let this fool steal the OWS ‘s fire.

    What is most fascinating is the connection between the bank frauds and the federal reserve criminal looting of the country, the 911 false flag criminal fraud and the genesis of that outcome and those individuals who created the American Medical Association and the government/ pharmaceutical complex in order to provide a further outlet for their petroleum feedstock in the form of high end specialty chemicals business (note the federal reserve families are also heavily into carbon mining and thus their hand in the global warming propaganda to both sell you carbon and tax its use rather than address the horrendous levels of pollution which are occuring), deny your right to cannabis, whether industrial or otherwise, which has some of the best sedative hypnotic activity and anti-cancer effects, blows away most prescription drugs and can be grown very inexpensively.

    I have mixed feelings about this pairing. On the one hand, I don’t want 9/11 truth to be associated wit h a subculture that most of America considers to be not in their right minds; they already think truthers are paranoid crazies, now they will think they are drugged-out paranoid crazies. On the other hand, I had hope that the Right, with their distrust of big government would have taken up the banner, and they have not. They fell right into the “Blame the Islamofacists” trap that the Judeo-Christian war machine set up for them. So perhaps the Left will save the truth movement. It must not become another irritating, preachy fringe group in the eyes of mainstream America (which is how they perceive animal rights groups, etc.)We must make middle America care about the issue. How do we do it? Feminism and racial equality have been accepted-we need to show the average person how 9/11 truth can benefit them. Until then, we are interesting, but not essential.

    My opinion was once against “legalization of all drugs.” I really thought it was wacky to legaliza pot, heroine, etc.
    But Milton Friedman says, “Along with freedom comes individual responsibility.” Anything can be abused, no doubt. Too many sweets can be a factor in diabetes. But in the case of pot, there are more strong points than weak points. Personally, I would not take it for spiritual reasons, it being a stimulus and not necessary for medical reasons. Still, for some it is a temporary transit back to sanity. No intoxication is my motto, but that means no alcohol, no tobacco, no coffee, etc. So, spiritually, I find it better to chant mantras. In conclusion,
    hemp is a productive plant. It should be on the free market. The very reason pot and hemp are controlled is that we do not have a free market in this country. Too much government control leads to bad effects. So, as Dr. Ron Paul says, “legalize all drugs.” This rule along would put a stop to the Drug wars which is a big money market for governments all over the world. Education of the Austrian economics of personal freedom is needed.
