BJs for MMJs? - Sex Scandals in the Marijuana Industry That No One Really Cares About?

by Reginald Reefer | Friday Sep 22, 2023

This crass quid pro quo scheme exposes the rottenness right at the core of cannabis prohibition.

I felt like I was poisoned!

by Reginald Reefer | Wednesday Sep 13, 2023

This contradicts the market trends we're seeing as legalization spreads.

The establishment's favorite tactic is the ol' bait and switch - dangling superficial reforms to distract us while they fortify prohibition behind the scenes. The latest insult? Potentially moving cannabis from Schedule I to Schedule III under the tyrannical Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Don't fall for the okey-doke, friends. This is a trojan horse meant to fool us into complacency.
