Kentucky House Judiciary Committee advances medical cannabis bill!
Seriously ill Kentuckians have been waiting long enough — urge your state legislators to support HB 136!
Today, Kentucky’s House Judiciary Committee voted 17-1 to pass HB 136, a bill that would legalize cannabis for medical use. Next the bill will proceed to the full House, where it is expected to receive a vote soon.
Fifty-one of Kentucky’s 100 state representatives are cosponsors of HB 136, and Gov. Andy Beshear has indicated that he strongly supports medical cannabis.
However, some Senate leaders remain opposed, so the challenge for advocates will be getting a bill through both chambers of the legislature and to the governor’s desk.
It’s critical that legislators hear from their constituents who support medical cannabis. After you write your legislators, please share this message with your friends and family.
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT HB136 IS A NON SMOKABLE NON GROWABLE BILL! IT IS STRICTLY FOR MEDICAL CONSUMPTION ONLY!
“to prohibit smoking of medicinal marijuana;”
“to establish limits on the THC content of medicinal marijuana that can be produced or sold in the state”
“to exempt certain records and information from the disclosure under the Kentucky Open Records Act;”
“to permit an employer to restrict the possession and use of medicinal marijuana by an employee;”
Sen. Perry Clark introduced SB105 on January 22, 2020 which DOES include adult use, small amounts of growing for personal use as well. Please view the Bill at this link!
“to allow for possession, growth, use, processing, purchasing, transfer, and consumption of cannabis;”
“to establish provisions for personal cultivation;”
“to establish provisions for palliative or therapeutic use of cannabis by persons under the age of 21;”
I received the following letter from Sen. Mitch McConnell on the 10th of this month. Thought I would share it.
Dear Ms. Krider;
Thank you for contacting me with your thoughts on marijuana. Your views help me represent Kentucky and the nation in the United States Senate, and I appreciate the opportunity to respond to your concerns.
Kentuckians continue to combat the negative consequences associated with the cultivation and distribution of marijuana in communities across the state. According to the Drug Enforcement Agency, in 2018, approximately 418,076 plants were eradicated in the Commonwealth, over $471,000 worth of assets were seized, and more than 73 weapons were taken off the streets as a result of the marijuana eradication operations. Traffickers have been known to trespass on both private and public lands, often resulting in damage to private property and many of the Commonwealth’s most cherished natural habitats.
There is no doubt that drug abuse persists as a serious problem in all 120 counties of the Commonwealth, and the effects of such abuse have proved devastating for our local communities. That is one reason why I welcomed Jim Carroll, Director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, to visit Kentucky in March, 2019. Known as the country’s “drug czar,” Director Carroll focused his attention on understanding Kentucky’s efforts to treat addiction and combat drug abuse and trafficking.
In your correspondence, you mentioned the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act of 2019 (S. 2227). Introduced by Senator Kamala Harris on July 23, 2019, the MORE Act would remove marijuana from the schedule of controlled substances, create a grant program for areas impacted by marijuana convictions, and provide for expungement for certain cannabis offenses. Because of the harm that substances like marijuana and other illegal drugs pose to our society, I oppose their legalization. That said, I will keep your thoughts in mind as the 116th Congress proceeds.
Thank you for contacting me about this important matter.

UNITED STATES SENATOR
On Sunday, November 3rd, at approximately 7 a.m., TKP Thorne Peters was found deceased in his single person cell, where he had spent 22 hours a day, in “protective custody”, since being committed to the Penal Farm in Memphis Tennessee in 2018.
The Detectives came to Linda Harrah’s home at approximately 2 p.m. and notified her of the situation. I can’t even imagine what she must have felt when she heard those words, (of Thorne’s death) from them. God Bless her.
He was 57 years old and while in prison had been writing a new book which he was going to publish upon his release from prison. “Paper is hard to come by here”, he said to me in a letter.
He always called me “Amore”, which at first I didn’t know what that meant, until I looked it up and found; Amore is the Italian word for “love”. I will always hold that close to my heart. He had written me several letters from prison, and they did not tell of any pleasantry at all.
The following is the last letter that I received from him, just a few days before his death. Because of the circumstances I feel compelled to share it with everyone, especially his followers.
I have been crashed out hard over my latest victory. I make the entire Courthouse shut down, and when the out of town Judge rules that ALL my evidence was on point and ALL 30 of the suspects were connected and therefore would have to take the Stand, they tunneled out of the Court to evade justice yet again. 11 years and the clock is ticking against me.
I had allowed myself a vision that when this trial began on December 9, 2019 and I lined up The Ministerz of Injustice for the big reveal that the evidence of their CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY of PUBLIC CORRUPTION would be so overwhelming in the glare of the WHITE HOT MEDIA SPOTLIGHT that would be forced to cover the story of the highest elected and appointed officials of law enforcement, politics, and the Judiciary taking the Stand to face dead bang, fatal blow evidence that my plight would reach the SAG and onto the Governor who would be forced to get involved and take a stand, and I could be pardoned by XMas.
Now the reality of my situation crashes in upon my head. I am buried under this jail. Instead of detonating a weapon of mass destruction in Court, I am reduced to taking pot shots with my blunderbust from deep within the bowels of the belly of the beast.
I have to remain focused and dedicated. I cannot be disheartened. These victories are not pyrrhic. I’m not playing Chess. This is Chinese GO.
I have to keep accumulating ground. This battle brought me more ammunition to continue. As it was in the Revolutionary War, we won very few battles. The victory was keeping the Troops moving and maneuvering. I had them in my sights. I have to regroup and flank them again.
I am reduced to a HUNGER STRIKE to demand the Authorities investigate this case. The hilarity is that DA AMY (WEIRICH) has to sign off on a case of PUBLIC CORRUPTION in order for TBI (Tennessee Bureau of Investigation), to proceed. ROUND ROBIN.
Had I been brought back to Court to hear the ADA concede, I would have smacked him across his dickhead as I walked out and declared EXTREME EMOTIONAL DISTRESS as a defense. The CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY would be back on point and the DIRTY 30 would be called to the Stand.
So, I deal POT at the Courthouse and they won’t charge me with a FELONY to take to SCOTUS. They ignore that and charge me with MISDEMEANOR POSSESSION OF POT as part of a felony FTA (Failure to appear), that they prosecute across the Courthouse for 18 months, and 7 Courts, until all 10 ditch, (Judges recuse themselves from the Case),
I kicked their asses! I am left here to celebrate alone in my mausoleum with a plate of gruel served on a soapy tray. At least I can use that as an excuse.
I’m NOT crying – my eyes are running from the soapy tray.
October 28, 2019 will mark the longest I’ve ever done, (in prison). January 20, 2020 will be half-way-home-day. I can’t comprehend this time frame. So I put my heart into doing ONE MORE DAY – an hour for every minute…
These words of TKP Thorne Peters will be the last I will ever read or hear from him. It is sad. It is sad that a State (or a Country) can be so corrupt as to let someone die under such horrid conditions in a single cage without any sympathy or concern for them what-so-ever. Unfortunately Thorne is not the first person this has happened to and will not be the last. This is what we have become. A Country that cares not for it’s Citizens, but only for their power and greed and punitive rights. Rights? Yeah, their rights! Not ours.
We will never know how this Case would have ended, or if the corruption would have been exposed. We only know how it did end, with a great person, and Activist dying in the Shelby County Correctional System – The Penal Farm.
The Book which he was writing will eventually be published and much more information about his days in HELL will be exposed. We may never find out the truth about HOW he ended up dying, alone, in that CAGE, in one night’s time.
Of course an autopsy will be performed – probably already has been, but will we ever really know the truth? Most likely not. It really doesn’t matter what they tell us such as “no foul play is suspected”, because there isn’t a chance in HELL that they will incriminate themselves in this matter.
Thorne was a self proclaimed Atheist, however when I wrote him letters I would always tell him God Bless You. I believe God has/will bless him as he was martyred for his beliefs that humans should be free and have unalienable rights. Everything he did was done to help humanity.
Oddly enough, in another letter from Thorne recently he stated;
I have been in this cell for a year. I have another 26 months to go…so far. If I am convicted at my next trial I will receive 36 more months. I will be in this cell for the duration. The aspect of such a trial and tribulation may drive me to find God…at least until I get outta here!
We had disagreements on how he presented himself to others, such as when he downed people for medical marijuana activism – But in fact he was NOT downing them at all – Just trying to get their attention as to what they were doing – giving their own unalienable rights away to legislation which was, is, and will continue to be the downfall of all Humanity – If we do not stop it.
We are all fighting in the same War! We are all fighting for everyone, not just a few! All humanity deserves the same unalienable rights! We may have differing opinions on how to do this – but we all want the same outcome – FREEDOM!
On November 4th, one day after the fact, the Commercial Appeal published the story of his death;
In their article they wrote the following;
This year the appeals court affirmed his four-year sentence, citing among other things the following Facebook post in which Peters threatened to shoot people who came to take his drugs:
“I was just sitting around hoping some sorry want to be wigger, (expletive) was going to stop by with his partner to rob me of all this weed and money, I’m holding, so I can take target practice on their sorry asses. If you know anybody that wants to try me, let them know, I will be up all night, armed and dangerous.”
I was not there when this was said (written) so I have no way of knowing the actual thoughts behind it at the time, but I would never believe for a minute that he would in fact do such a thing. I am from Kentucky, and many times we have, in general conversation, made similar remarks amongst ourselves, just in jest – but we would never actually do such a thing and I believe it was in extremely bad taste to even print such a quote.
I also do not believe that he had a gun at his disposal – in his home!
Thorne was living what he believed in and did it to the best of his ability – and he was crucified for it. He never hurt anyone.
He believed in Our freedom, and he fought for it until the end.
In closing, I leave you with this,
God Bless Thorne Peters!
Lord, please Bless Ms. Linda Harrah during this most difficult time.
It is a sad day and with a heavy heart I recognize that my Friend in deed Thorne Peters has passed away while being a political prisoner in Tennessee. Thorne fought for everyone’s freedom not only his own. There is no freedom unless everyone is free. The cornerstone of freedom of his Teaching is “No Men’s Rea”….
No Men’s Rea Which is short for the Latin Phrase “Actus Reus No Facit Reum Nisi Men’s Sit Rea”.This translates to English to ” For the act to be guilty, the mind must be guilty., And for the mind to be guilty the act must be criminal with intent to do harm to a person, property or puppy” . In short, no guilty mind, no crime , no time.
We are free to do what we want as long as we don’t hurt anyone. Thorne Peters taught of No Men’s Rea, how legislation enslaves us, Freedom ends where legislation begins and if we go free they go broke, touched many.
Thorne was standing up against to Shelby County law enforcement and judges and the Ministers of Injustice that conspired to deny Thorne his Justice, due process and conspired to frame him for something he didn’t do. Thorne was fighting the system from the inside by using his malicious prosecution and making those whom conspired against him accountable by putting them on trial.
Shelby County did their best to silence him. Thornes teaching will never be silenced. For those not familiar and blessed to know Thorne you can go to ThornePeters.com .There you will see his videos, his music and poetry he wrote. . For those who know Thorne please consider going to ThornePeters.com and clicking on the Freedom Fund. Their is still a lot of work to do for freedom, extra costs, dogs to feed and we need to help Linda Harrah to keep those home fires burning.
Thorne just finished writing a book and I believe the title is Fully Free from Jail. I hope it gets published soon as those were his last words to us. .
I want to share a fond memory many of us have of Thorne. Thorne was prosecuted a convicted in a kangaroo court for a crime he didn’t commit. On the day he was to go to court for sentencing Thorne had a surprise. Thorne set up a table and opened up Tennessees first pot dispensary on the court house steps. We thought he would be arrested and charged immediately. Instead, Law enforcement was hiding. News cameras were their. Thorne sold pot on the court house steps without being arrested for about 2 hours. Thorne was never, charged or convicted of it. Proving No Men’s Rea works.
There is a video at ThornePeters.com . As a disciple of Thorne I vow to put forth his Teaching and continue the best I can by his example. The Bible says their is no greater love then a man lay down his life for a friend. Thorne did that for his friends in deed.We were all his “friends in deed”. I can still hear Thorne when he would say ” May you look inward, outward and upward to find Peace Love and Stars”.
I love you my Brother. Your brother and friend in deed!

On Tuesday, November 5th, the most important election in Kentucky in many years is about to happen!
I am not here to argue with anyone. I am here to present the facts and my opinion as I see it.
First of all, you must vote to see change! If you are eligible to Vote and are registered to do so – You must VOTE! It is your Civic Duty. And if you are eligible to vote but did not register, shame on you!
IF you want a change in your Government, you have to vote for the people who will CHANGE the way things are being done in Kentucky!
You CANNOT vote for a Democrat or Republican and expect anything to change – only to get worse! So if that is what you want, then go for it!
Otherwise, BE THE CHANGE that Kentucky must have in order to succeed! John Hicks and Ann Cormican – Libertarian are running for the most important office in the State. That is where we must start! At the top!
On November 1st, Rep. Jason Nemes prefiled this years “medical marijuana bill” for Kentucky. It will become House Bill 136 when the Session opens in January, and if it passes we will once again become Slaves to the system! A few points on the Bill as written are:
* Department for Alcoholic Beverage and Cannabis Control to implement and regulate the medicinal marijuana program in Kentucky;
* establish the Division of Medicinal Marijuana within the Department of Alcoholic Beverage and Cannabis Control;
* establish restrictions on the possession of medicinal marijuana by qualifying patients, visiting patients, and designated caregivers;
* establish certain protections for cardholders;
* establish professional protections for practitioners; to provide for the authorizing of practitioners by state licensing boards to issue written certifications for the use medicinal marijuana;
* establish professional protections for attorneys;
* prohibit the possession and use of medicinal marijuana while operating a motor vehicle;
* to prohibit smoking of medicinal marijuana;
* to permit an employer to restrict the possession and use of medicinal marijuana by an employee;
* to require the department to implement and operate a registry identification card program; to establish requirements for registry identification cards; to establish registry identification card fees; to require the department to operate a provisional licensure receipt system; to establish the application requirements for a registry identification card; to establish when the department may deny an application for a registry identification card;
* establish certain responsibilities for cardholders; to establish when a registry identification card may be revoked;
* establish various cannabis business licensure categories; to establish tiering of cannabis business licenses; to require certain information be included in an application for a cannabis business license; to establish when the department may deny an application for a cannabis business license;
* to establish rules for local sales, including establishing the process by which a local legislative body may prohibit the operation of cannabis businesses within its territory and the process for local ordinances and ballot initiatives;
* establish technical requirements for cannabis businesses;
* to establish limits on the THC content of medicinal marijuana that can be produced or sold in the state;
* to establish requirements for cannabis cultivators, including cultivation square footage limits; to establish requirements for cannabis dispensaries; to establish requirements for safety compliance facilities; to establish requirements for cannabis processors; to establish procedures for the department to inspect cannabis businesses;
* to exempt certain records and information from the disclosure under the Kentucky Open Records Act;
* to establish that nothing in the bill requires government programs or private insurers to reimburse for the cost of use; to establish the medicinal marijuana trust fund; to establish the local medicinal marijuana trust fund; and to establish procedures for the distribution of local cannabis trust fund moneys;
* create a new section of KRS Chapter 138 to establish an excise tax of 12% for cultivators and processors for selling to dispensaries; to require that 80% of the revenue from the excise taxes be deposited into the medicinal marijuana trust fund; to require that 20% of the revenue from the excise taxes be deposited into the local medicinal marijuana trust fund; amend KRS 342.815 to establish that the Employer’s Mutual Insurance Authority shall not be required to provide coverage to an employer if doing so would subject the authority to a violation of state or federal law;
Is this what you want?
The above is not all inclusive of the regulations, and they will no doubt change again when it is introduced in January. Read the Bill!
Please note that there are NO provisions for “smokable cannabis”, and NO mention of Children’s rights either. There are NO provisions for growing your own plants, and this BILL in my opinion is being promoted for the Corporate/Pharmaceutical industry.
Out of all the Bills previously submitted for “medical” or “adult use” Cannabis in Kentucky this is the worst one yet! Do not fall for the legal lies which they are feeding you because they are preying on your fears for your Children’s needs, mostly. The fact is, what M.D., is going to give you permission or a written statement that will give you the right to medicate your child with Cannabis? The answer to that is virtually none, and if there was even one that WOULD do it there is no guarantee that you will be able to access that Physician!
The bill would prohibit the smoking of marijuana for medical purposes, but would allow other forms of consumption, such as edibles, oils and pills. A 12% excise tax is proposed for cultivators and processors for selling to dispensaries. LINK
I have consulted with several other Senior Activists in Kentucky over this issue and we all surmised basically the same opinions on the matter! This is in NO way a repeal of prohibition of Cannabis and in no way will it ascertain our rights to this plant – medically or otherwise. It is however, worth some $$$ to Corporate Ventures and Kentucky Government as it now stands!
In my opinion, for those parents who have seriously ill children in need of this medicine they need to consider moving to a honest medical cannabis State such as Colorado or elsewhere. For those who are unable to do this due to financial situations we must set up a fund to enable them to do so. I can honestly say that if it were my child that is exactly what I would do! Not because I want to leave my home in Kentucky, but because my Childs life is more important and I would be compelled to do so, IF John Hicks and Ann Cormican are not elected.
The “Undergreen Railroad” is one such organization. I will look into this organization further, especially if Hicks/Cormican are not elected, because you all are going to need it!
Finally, we come to the third candidate in the governor’s race. Libertarian John Hicks. John is a Vietnam Era Army veteran, a former school teacher, and currently an IT consultant. He has a BA Degree in Political Science and History. He has never held political office, but ran previously for State Representative (District 43) in 2018. John is pro-life and believes government should stay out of personal issues.
John supports the legalization of marijuana, expanded gaming, and the development of hemp as sources of additional state revenue (better than raising taxes!). He also believes that the best way to compensate for budget shortfalls is to reduce the size of government and streamlining operations. Additionally, John Hicks supports election reform; specifically by introducing run-offs, using ranked choice voting, proportional representation, multi member districts which would end partisan gerrymandering.

Do not condemn Our State once again!
God Bless You All
Please view video linked below from Ms. Linda Harrah, at the Memphis, Tennessee Penal Farm:
On Wednesday, October 16th, Ms. Linda Harrah visited TKP Thorne Peters at the Penal Farm in Memphis, TN, where he has been incarcerated since April 3, 2018.
They were not allowed personal visitation however, they were able to view and speak to each other through video conference, according to Ms. Linda Harrah.
Judge William Acree, a “traveling Judge” for the State of Tennessee, ceded the case. D.A. Amy Weirich did not want the trial to proceed, so therefore the trial for “selling pot on the Courthouse steps” is NOT going to Trial. Note letter from TBI below on cannabis prosecution policy currently in place.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, (TBI), investigation into Courthouse corruption would have to be approved by D.A. Amy Weirich first, which will not happen.
The above letter, sent out by TBI, states that the testing in marijuana cases will “only be performed on felony amounts of plant material and at District Attorney’s request if needed for trial.”
Slowly, small amounts of Marijuana, usually an ounce or less, are being ignored, and/or thrown out of Court and not prosecuted. That is a win for the general public who only seeks to purchase a small amount of black market product. However, it still leaves many people behind in harms way of the law, because in fact, the illegality of Marijuana is still very much alive. Those who have grown their own plants, or purchased an amount that could be attributed to “trafficking” can be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Many people are languishing in prison right now over a plant that NEVER should have been made illegal to begin with! The fight isn’t over, in fact it’s only just begun!
For those reasons, a major Federal Repeal is necessary and must be pursued. As well, “no mens rea” should apply to all personal cases in every State. We are in fact at war and we must continue to fight until the battle is won!
Don’t forget the ones, our Brothers and Sisters, who have been taken from their families and forced into a cage like animals, for using the Cannabis plant, or any other plant!

For the act to be guilty, the mind must be guilty, for the mind to be guilty, the act must be criminal.
Continuing corruption abounds in the saga of Phoenix Tears and the legalization of Cannabis in Canada.
Corruption is rampant in the U.S. and every other Country on a continuing basis as we seek to regain human rights and freedoms for all people. Particularly Cannabis and Plant rights.
The story focused on in this article is the one of Kevin Moore and Daren McCormick, members of “Phoenix Tears”, a group of activists in Nova Scotia who are trying to maintain ability to treat Cancer patients and others with debilitating illnesses with RSO Cannabis Oil.
They have been persecuted from the beginning – – meaning since Rick Simpson was forced to leave the Country after publicizing the “healing oil” for all its worth as a medicine in the late nineties.
Be aware that the “legalization” of Cannabis/Marijuana is just the beginning of the control of this plant use and that we have gained absolutely no freedom in asking the Government(s) to “allow” us to use it thru “Legislation”.
It was a Freedom which we already had, through Our Unalienable Rights as Human Beings on this Planet!
It has been stolen through the U.N. and Our own Government’s Legislation and Statutes and Treaties and Controlled Substances Act.
Stand for Freedom!
Fight for the Freedom from the Prohibition of Your Freedom’s!
Please watch the ENTIRE VIDEO below and I will also give additional links of information.
Opheucus has a channel on YOUTUBE which has many video’s which I encourage you to view as well!
If you haven’t watched the original “Run from the Cure” – Now is your chance to do so!
Above: Don’t give an Elephant LSD!
Quietly, seemingly overnight, a long time friend of the Plant prohibitionists has sprung into existence in the U.S. The Opium Poppy plant has been grown in North Carolina, in someone’s backyard, just as the Cannabis Plant, in it’s Black Market, commercial beginning had done some 50+ years ago.
It is not at all surprising that this should happen. After all, there are no more available places to obtain a “legal” narcotic prescription for pain – except in the most dire situations, and even then it is questionable. What else are people supposed to do? Kill themselves with meth and poorly concocted Heroin? People will always have a need for pain and anxiety relief. I believe that God knew this when He planned for this Planet and the people on it. That is why the Bible states:
Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every seed-bearing plant on the face of all the earth, and everytree whose fruit contains seed. They will be yoursfor food. 30And to every beast of the earth and every bird of the air and every creature that crawls upon the earth—everything that has the breath of life in it—I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so.…
As I’ve stated in previous articles, the Government knew exactly what they were doing and what would happen when they set up for the “Opioid Crisis”. It was a horrible way to begin a Culling, and many people have died because of it and many more will continue to die. Meth has taken over the market for the less fortunate peoples in the Country. The ones who have a better income, can survive a little better with “street drugs”, but in the end Heroin usually wins out.
We, as a People have to become smarter about how we use the God-given Plants which afford us some much needed relief. Cannabis is the go to plant for most common and some not so common ailments. However, there are times when stronger medicine is required and unfortunately these stronger remedies afford addiction as well. Although it can be argued that addiction doesn’t become as big of a problem if the substance the person is addicted to is readily available. That being said, I certainly would not advocate for addiction! Not only is it essentially illegal, it is the worse possible condition a person can find themselves in and if you survive and come out of it you are a very strong person. A lot of people don’t survive it.
IF you must have a narcotic for pain or anxiety, use it wisely, and never let yourself get too attached to it.
Now, how to obtain that much needed “medicine”? Everyone must learn to provide for themselves, not the Black Market, and be responsible for themselves. That is why the Prohibition of Plants is so reprehensible. We must be allowed to use the plants God put here for us to use! No plant of any kind should ever be made illegal to grow! Not even Opium!
There are many Plants that are naturally grown that can be used for Our own health and well-being. One of them is Sassafras, which was removed from Root Beer some years ago in the commercial market.
One of the intended consequences of Roundup was the elimination of Dandelions! Why wouldn’t the NWO want to eliminate such a useful plant from our grasp?
If you haven’t yet seen “Ozark” on Netflix, it is a very good show, depicting money laundering and drug trafficking in the Ozarks and elsewhere. It was my first experience with the thought of Opium being grown in the U.S.
Isn’t it odd that now, after the Cannabis legalization initiatives are growing Nationwide, that another “plant” that can be and IS prohibited by LAW, is starting to pick up pace…
In comes the continuation of Prohibition 2.0, Jail for Plants, to continuously fill the “much needed” Prisons around the Country whether they be “Corporate Prisons” for profit, or “County Jails”, for profit as well, because….well, they are ALL for profit!
What better way to control Mankind than to control ALL of the “Food”, which in fact IS Our medicine as well.
“First Do No Harm” must be made to apply to the Government!
Basil may be a common element of Italian food, but it also has great medicinal properties. This fantastic herb can help transform both you and your garden. It is very rich in beta-carotene, a precursor to Vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for good vision, cell development, and immune health. Basil oil is rich in a compound named eugenol, which has anti-inflammatory properties and can comfort painful bones and joints just like over-the-counter ibuprofen. What’s more, it exhibits potent antibacterial properties and is effective even against antibiotic-resistant microorganisms.
Our Ancestors already knew what we now have to re-learn, how to use plants, all kinds of plants for our health. Most people had Herb gardens that they used for medicinal purposes. We have been essentially robbed of all of this information by having pharmaceuticals thrown at us from every direction since birth.
I am NOT saying that all pharmaceuticals are useless. Quite the contrary. Just that the People must be allowed to have sovereign control of what they will use for medication and how they will use it. Plants must not be allowed to be controlled by Government entities solely for the purpose of eradicating them from Our own personal use!
So let the Cannabis grow freely! Let the Poppy’s grow freely! What we choose to do with them will be good and bad, but never could it be as bad as what the Government has done with the control of ALL of Our Plants!
This issue gains even more momentum when you understand that it is not just about cannabis/hemp/marijuana. It also involves all food and plants which are coming under their jurisdiction.
By the 19th century, laudanum was used in many patent medicines to “relieve pain … to produce sleep … to allay irritation … to check excessive secretions … to support the system … [and] as a soporific“. The limited pharmacopoeia of the day meant that opium derivatives were among the most effective of available treatments, so laudanum was widely prescribed for ailments from colds to meningitisto cardiac diseases, in both adults and children. Laudanum was used during the yellow fever epidemic.
Laudanum, originally, the name given by Paracelsus to a famous medical preparation of his own, composed of gold, pearls, and other items but containing opium as its chief ingredient. The name either was invented by Paracelsus from the Latin laudare (“to praise”) or was a corrupted form of ladanum (from the Persian ladan), a resinous juice or gum obtained from various kinds of the Cistus shrub. The term is now used only to describe the alcoholic tincture of opium, a 10 percent solution of opium powder dissolved in high-proof distilled spirits.
Some things will forever hold true – History repeats itself and Mother Nature will always win out!
Meanwhile in North Carolina,
“One of our narcotics investigators came to the house looking for something else,” Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid told the Hickory Daily Record. “When he knocked on the door, the guys said, ‘I guess you’re here about the opium.'”

The story starts here: CHRONOLOGY OF CORRUPTION!
For over a year now TKP Thorne Peters has been incarcerated in Shelby County Tennessee. He was last arrested on what was to be his sentencing date for April 3rd, 2018, but ended up being a “failure to appear” charge, and later on a cannabis charge after he decided to smoke Cannabis in front of the Courthouse on that day instead of showing up for Court.
The history of the conspiracy is explained on the Thorne Peters Website along with a lot of other information. Also, a very in-depth article about the pending cases is written by The Memphis Truth Commission.

For the act to be guilty, the mind must be guilty, for the mind to be guilty, the act must be criminal.

The latest information in this saga is that at least six Officials have been recused from Thorne Peter’s trial for varying reasons. They are: Carolyn Wade Blackett, Judge Paula Skahan, J. Robert Carter Jr., J. Lammey Jr., John Wheeler Campbell, and Asst. DA Mike Mc Cusker.
On Monday, Criminal Court Judge Jim Lammey, in a separate incident, has caused quite a stir over posts he made on Facebook. A number of organizations are requesting that he be censured.
June 3rd is the date set for there to be another Judge assigned to the case.
Meanwhile, at the Penal Farm, Thorne continues to fight human rights abuses within the system of the prison. Commissary items, books and other reading materials, paper and pens, things that we use everyday, these prisoners had been given no access to where Thorne is being held. As a result of Thorne’s intervention, the policies were changed. These items are now available. He continues to assist from within wherever he can.

You have to ask why so many judges are recusing on his Cannabis cases? Why they have to make it about something besides pot? This time it is failure to appear. When will he get a clear cannabis case? Lady L
Rainbow Farm was located in Vandalia, Michigan & was a cannabis friendly community. They had great concerts & speakers. The government came in later & killed the owners & stole the farm from the legal birth right of the son, Robert, 1 week before 9-11 (September 3rd & 4th,2001). Tom Crosslin & Rollie Rolhm were the owners & each one of them were systematically gunned down & tortured after being out numbered 300 to 1. In order to stop a memorial day concert, that was to start a signature campaign to legalize cannabis in the state of Michigan.
The Country as a whole has come a long way since the incident above in 2001, but it still has a very long way to go. We have 11 “legalized States” and 33 “medicinal States” to date according to NORML. More than the majority of Americans believe it should be made “lawful”. Many sick people including children are suffering needlessly and we have the ability to help rectify the situation.
We should not still have to be going to the Capital in Frankfort to beg for something that we should have had in Kentucky more than seven years ago. In fact, it never should have been “unlawful” to possess in the first place.
Gatewood Galbraith, “The greatest Governor that Kentucky never had”, spoke to this issue many times and had he been elected we would not still be in this same fight today. He said, “You have got to get political. Because if you don’t get political then I’m gonna die in the streets!”
The number of people who are dying in the streets has exponentially increased in the past 5+ years in earnest. The crisis was started by the Government and their Pharmaceutical cronies who promoted highly addictive opioid drugs for daily use to patients who were suffering and they bit the bait. After everyone was sufficiently addicted to the pharmaceuticals the Government claimed an “opioid crisis” and immediately withdrew these needed medications by way of intimidating the Physicians and forced drug testing to the point that the Medical Establishment could no longer take the chance of losing their Practice’s, and so they immediately withdrew needed medicines from Patients who legitimately needed them, as well as other’s who had become addicted for other reasons – and there are many reasons… This in turn caused people to literally die in the streets due to a dire need to medicate and the ample supply in the streets of much more potent and deadly drugs than what the Physicians had been prescribing them to begin with.
Some of us were strong enough and smart enough to turn to Cannabis which saved our lives, even though it is illegal. A lot of us have lost close friends and family members to this ‘war on drugs’. Many of us grieve daily because of it.
There have been Senators, Representatives and Citizen Activists, working hard to see Cannabis regulation and lawfulness is passed in the very State that in WWII the Government pleaded with people to grow Hemp for their War efforts. The people responded to their requests in a time of need. However, the Government turns their heads the other way when the Citizens request that they help them establish a safe and lawful way to use Cannabis, medically and otherwise. Not only would this help the multitudes of patients who direly need this medication, it would also establish a lawful product that can be taxed and used for the greater good of the State we reside in, including new businesses and employment. As a result, even those who chose not to partake in Cannabis would benefit from the legalization and taxation of the product – much like alcohol – with much less lawlessness than alcohol promotes…
It would establish a lawful alternative to Alcohol and Tobacco and other illicit drugs, such as street level opioids which are destroying families and responsible for unending deaths even as we speak. Yet, to date, our Kentucky Government has refused to act upon this issue.
Why has Kentucky Government taken such a path in governing of the people?
For a more in-depth read on why and how our Country has fell into the hands of the NWO you can view this LINK. “The Elkhorn Manifesto” is an archived page of the Kentucky Marijuana Party, written in 1996 by R. William Davis, and collaborated with Gatewood Galbraith.
Here we are, once again, in the year of Our Lord, 2019, begging for our leaders to hear our plea’s. And once again, they will try to ignore us!
As far as I am concerned, the lawfulness of Cannabis should first have been rightfully returned to the people through REPEAL of Federal Treaties and Statutes which made it unlawful to begin with. Possibly as far back as the 1914 Harrison Narcotics Tax Act. However, the situation has been taken into the hands of the individual States and their “States Rights” because the Federal Government refused to stand up for the rights of our people. Instead they have enlisted a “New World Order” to do their dirty work which seeks to contain society at large – world wide control of the masses, control of all plants, food, medicines, WATER, etc., to be placed under strict guidelines to which we must abide by the rules or suffer the consequences.
We have become damned if we do submit to the law and damned if we do not follow it as well.
There is research already out there and patients are being helped and in some cases literally saved from an early death by using Cannabis. Many people have been saved from addiction by using Cannabis.
We cannot wait another year to change the Cannabis Statutes in Kentucky. We need it now. We needed it 20 years ago.
There are currently two Bills in Kentucky Legislature – one in Senate and one in the House. Both bills should be passed and this is my reasoning for this:
SB 80 / Dan Malano Seum / Establishes the “Department of Cannabis Control” which will oversee lawful consumption of Cannabis in Kentucky by adults 21 and over. This Bill gives limited and controlled freedom back to the people in that it does allow for growing on our own property and consumption as well as sets the stage for business to be lawful throughout Kentucky. This legislation could be enacted fairly quickly and jumpstart the economy here. It is imperative that we implement this legislation this year if we seek to make our State livable again.
HB 136 / Establishes a very strict “Medical Cannabis” bill for bonified Patients. Because of the nature of illnesses and the fact that many Children could be served by this Bill it is imperative that “medicinal Cannabis” be made available in Kentucky to those who are in need, medically, whether they be adult or child. Many people who are not familiar with Cannabis and it’s use would serve to be protected as patients by this medical legislation. The problem is that with the measures necessary to comply with the Bill as it is written it would most certainly be a slow process to set up across the State and reach all patients equally. However, we should proceed immediately on this Act as well.
Additionally, a drug-free workplace Bill for the use of legal Hemp CBD products, currently sold on the open market:
SB 83 / Perry B. Clark “Shauna’s Law” Relating to a drug free workplace / Seeks to mandate an appeals process for those employer’s who enforce drug-testing upon their employee’s which will address those persons who have been found in violation of the drug-free workplace policy by testing positive on random drug screens for legal Hemp products such as CBD. It would set aside that violation if proven that a legal product had been used. This Bill must be passed in order to preserve the integrity of the Hemp market as well as employee’s rights.
IF our Legislator’s and Governor do not seek to enact the Bill’s which we as a People have requested for our health and well-being in general, then the political system of the Commonwealth of Kentucky needs to be immediately and completely changed and replaced. This would also include other issues of great importance in Kentucky such as the Pension Crisis.
The corruption in Kentucky runs far and wide and seeks to be ended this year. The time is now for change…not later. We cannot wait another year to be lawful!
