Although the USMJParty is a "REPEAL/NULLIFY & ANTIPROHIBITION" Party, we do not wish to stand in the way of Patient's needing Cannabis as treatment for their illnesses. For this reason we will SUPPORT change in Kentucky law to provide a "safe Haven" for Patient's consumption of Cannabis in any form as medicine. Of note, there is a little known law called "The lesser of two evils" that can be made to apply to these situations. However, this entails a Court battle which Patient's should not have to go thru in their time of need. Here is a LINK to this information on WIKI.
This defense was used successfully by Gatewood Galbraith on several occasions. The ultimate goal MUST remain REPEAL and Nullify Cannabis Prohibition thru the United Nations and our U.S. Federal Government. The "Legalization" laws which have been passed to date, particularly "recreational use" in Washington State and Colorado are a "legal" way within a State to have commerce with an illegal substance. And I quote from the U.N. "…”The growing illegal economy supports and enables corrupt officials, criminals, terrorists, and insurgents to mingle and conduct business with another. We must build our own networks to fight these illicit networks and break their corruptible influence…” Bearing this in mind, the ONLY way to truly break free from the "Drug War" is to go backwards, and REPEAL these laws which where put in place to benefit the Corporate/Industrial Revolution. Until we accomplish this, we will never be free from prosecution for using this plant. And it does not just encompass "Cannabis" but many other plants as well. The "Legalization" rush is on. And just as the Cannabis Businesses are pushing forward, so will the policing of the businesses. They will continue to fill our jails and prisons with laws written just for Cannabis user's whether they be "legal" or not. In the meantime, while we fight for the freedom of Cannabis user's let God keep our Patient's safe from undue harm by the corruption of our own
Government and it's war upon God's plant.

Kentucky Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty Why abolish the death penalty in Kentucky?
It's out of step with modern thinking.
It's unfair, broken, and arbitrary.
Victims' families deserve better.

The Dark and Bloody Ground
The popular belief that the name Kentucky means "Dark and Bloody Ground" is apparently without foundation. Yet through the years, the image has persisted in literary and oral tradition as a description of the Kentucky country.
One traditional explanation sites Delaware legend in which the ancient tribe of the Lenni-Lanape allied with the Iroquois to fight the Allegewi, the original inhabitants of Kentucky. In a single bloody battle the Allegewi were virtually exterminated. The land where an entire nation had been eradicated became known as the "dark and bloody ground". The violent clashes between the Iroquois and the southern Indians only helped reinforce the image.
In his book, "Historical Sketches of Kentucky" (1874), Richard H. Collins says that a northern Indian once asked Indian fighter Joseph H. Daveiss how white men could live in land that had seen so much bloodshed. The Indian said that the ghosts of those killed in the Indian wars haunted the land making it dangerous.
At the execution of the Treaty of Sycamore Shoals the Cherokee Cheif Dragging Canoe is said to have told Col. Richard Henderson that the lands south of the Kentucky river were "bloody ground"and would be "dark and difficult to settle". However Ruben T. Durrett said in his book, "The Centenary of Kentucky"(1892) that the phrase was used to discourage Henderson from purchasing the land.
Toxic chemicals in our environment, such as mercury, lead, and certain manmade chemicals, have been linked to cancer, birth defects and brain impairments. Reducing or eliminating the load of these dangerous chemicals in the products we buy, the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink can help reduce the toll of human disease and suffering.
PLEASE DO NOT USE SO CALLED "SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA" OR "SPICE" SOLD UNDER AN EVER INCREASING VARIETY OF NAMES!
IT IS NOT MARIJUANA AT ALL AND I AM INSULTED THAT THE WORDS SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA ARE USED TO DESCRIBE THESE SUBSTANCES! "FAKE DRUGS" WOULD SUFFICE!
PLEASE COPY AND OPEN THE LINK BELOW TO READ ONE STORY ABOUT THESE "FAKE DRUGS"!
PARENTS, WATCH YOUR CHILDREN! BETTER TO OFFER THEM THE REAL THING THAN TAKE A CHANCE ON THEM GETTING A HOLD OF SUCH GOD-AWFUL SUBSTANCES!
"...Officials said the powdery substance sold as bath salts mimic the effects of cocaine, ecstasy and LSD. It can be snorted, injected or mixed with drinks for food. The chemicals can cause hallucinations, paranoia, rapid heart rates, violent behavior and suicidal thoughts.
Synthetic marijuana contains organic leaves coated with chemicals that provide a marijuana-like high when smoked. The product is marketed under various brands include Spice and K2.
The synthetic drugs can be purchased on the Internet and in some tobacco and smoke shops, drug paraphernalia shops, gas stations and convenience stores..."
OF NOTE: THESE PRODUCTS ARE MOST OFTEN USED BY THOSE WHO ARE FORCED TO SUBMIT TO "DRUG TESTIING"....
THAT IS WHY THAT THEY HAVE BECOME SO POPULAR ALONG WITH THE FACT THAT THEY ARE READILY AVAILABLE FOR SALE TO MINORS - OR SOMEONE WHO WOULD PURCHASE FOR A MINOR.
THIS HAS TO STOP!
