After reaching out to Thorne Peters via letter about a month ago, I have since received letters back from him. There have been ten Judges recuse themselves from the case so far, as reported by Ms. Linda Harrah on Facebook.
On August 13th, the Memphis Flyer published that the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals upheld the original ruling and sentence on Peters’ case dealt by the Shelby County Criminal Court. A PDF of that Court case is HERE.
In a 10 page handwritten letter from Thorne Peters he said that,
“My message must reach beyond these walls to be heard by that ONE PERSON who will hear it and use it to save themselves by following the LAW over LEGISLATION! FREE BY LAW NOT SLAVE TO LEGISLATION!
We must never forget not only Thone Peters, but ALL of the prisoners of the drug war that have so savagely been incarcerated and denied their rights and freedom, lost their families and more, because of a commerce driven NWO Agenda to control each and every one of us by legislation to do so. Enforced by the military industrial complex, which was in fact voted upon by us when we put the people into the government industrial complex, which we created, and in which we all now live, and have been living for at least the last 200 years, (because that’s as far back as I care to go). So it is essentially all of our faults that this scenario came to be, not on purpose, but by lack of knowledge and understanding and the all out cover up by the entities which evolved beyond our understanding and ability to react. In short, “they” think they have us all wrapped up nicely.
Thorne states in his letter that he is facing at least 26 additional months, and possibly another 30 months “in the offing”, for a total of six years. I surely hope and pray that this doesn’t happen. I hope that all prisoners of prohibition will be set free soon. There are a few States that are taking a step in the right direction, however it needs to be done at a Federal level, repeal their sentences, and mass release them all. They are in fact prisoners of war.
For the act to be guilty, the mind must be guilty, for the mind to be guilty, the act must be criminal.
Without further ado I will give you excerpts of the words from “TKP Thorne Peters”, from the Memphis Tennessee Penal Farm:
“My message must reach beyond these walls to be heard by that ONE PERSON who will hear it and use it to save themselves by following the LAW over LEGISLATION.”
“Any who stand for Bills and propositions to create LEGISLATION to REPEAL, REFORM or REDRESS THE law STAND AGAINST FREEDOM!”
“We will not be set FREE by the System that has been designed to enslave us with fees, fines, sin tax and penalties for engaging in consensual behavior that have been opined into arguments in the name of enacting LEGISLATION to save us from Ourselves, for Our own good. PROHIBITION is a crime against humanity, but we have accepted it as an outgrowth of a Democracy based on providing Representation to inflict the will of the PEOPLE against the HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL. Slaves did not need the EMANCIPATION PROCLOMATION to be FREE. They were born FREE. LEGISLATION robbed them of that FREEDOM with a CONSTITUTION that supports bigotry over moral turpitude. ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, NOT SLAVES OR FEMALES. WE THE PEOPLE cannot be given power over the FREE WILL of FREE individuals to engage in consensual acts of FREEDOM of choice…no matter how many SHEEPLE gather with their pitchforks, torches and LEGISLATION to rule me with Jackbootz and Kangaroo Courts.”
“The LAW cannot change because I AM THE LAW. LEGISLATION supports an artificial system of LEGAL and ILLEGAL that does not exist in nature.”
“In 2003, in LAWRENCE V. TEXAS, the SUPREME COURT ruled that sodomy is now legal. So, by this standard, if I sodomize you, how can you declare it is illegal? In this primal act we understand the law. I, the individual, the most powerful force on earth, declare that sodomy is UNLAWFUL when done to me! But the individuals or gaggle of FLOCKTARDZ have the authority to tell others they cannot engage in an act that they find immoral, deviant, disgusting, or reprehensible…”
“If Our right to say YES is stolen by LEGISLATION then Our right to say NO is up for vote and that is RAPE! We are brainwashed on the most fundamental level to deny Our individuality in order to be more easily led astray. Look at the words we use to refer to an individual – OURSELVES, THEMSELVES, YOU is also plural or singular. Individuals are denounced as RECALCITRANT, RABBLEROUSER, DISSIDENT, we have problems with authority – INFIDEL, BLASPHEMER, ENEMY OF THE STATE. CONFORM OR DIE! …
“This is why the Holy/Legal Union of Marriage is imposed, so that you must answer to someone other than yourself. If not GOD or CROWN OF GOVERNMENT, then your Spouse. Pay a fee to the establishment to prove your Love – The Contract of Marriage. OR the ENTITY will label your children Bastards! Control through stigma. It costs little to get married and a lot to get a divorce.”
“If we go FREE, the ENTITY goes broke!”
“Two people commit the same Act, (ACTOS REUS), for the same purpose, (MENS REA), yet by the Democratic process of LEGISLATION by REPRESENTATION, one can be declared a Criminal and the other a Customer.”
“Two people toke up. Where are you at in America? Are you following the rules? Two people use a drug. Just say no to drugs. Which drugs? If you are using drug, did you pay your fee to the AMA and go to the monopoly of Big Pharma? Are you a Customer or a Criminal for using that drug? Are you using one of the drugs prescribed by the MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX or one of the drugs PROHIBITED BY PRESCRIPTION by the LEGAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. If you’re not paying a fee to the entity there will be fines. So be good SHEEPLE, and do what you are told to do, the way you are told to do it and you will be a FREE CITIZEN in a FREE COUNTRY, even though there is RESTRAINT OF TRADE in the FREE MARKET ENTERPRISE. You are FREE to buy what the ENTITY allows you to buy!”
“We are trained to believe that LEGISLATION sets us FREE, when in reality LEGISLATION is what declares us SLAVES. The motto on our $ is E PLURIBUS UNUM – FROM MANY ONE.”
The reality is that we are conscripted by LEGISLATION to become MANY rather than ONE.
“As Senator Huey P. Long said: When Fascism comes to America, it will not be called Fascism…It will be called Anti-Fascism”
“Denouncing Our blessed CONSTITUTION makes you an ANARCHIST, a SUBVERSIVE. As good Americans we must follow the CONSTITUTION…well, which version?”
“States Rights enforced atrocities that were confirmed by Congressional Act. The Fugitive Slave Act, The Mann Act, The Volstead Act, The Racial Integrity Act, Comstock Law, are all violations of Our Human Rights and were enforced in Supreme Court decisions. In Dred Scott V. Sanford, SCOTUS ruled that Negroes were like Hogs.”
“You notice that in School, they never teach us about the people who stood up as individuals against the system; only of those who stood up in SUPPORT of the System. We do not learn the names of those who stood up as Individuals to declare that they are FREE BY LAW, NOT SLAVE TO LEGISLATION. Linda Brown V. Board of Education; Aurelia Browder who defeated segregated buses. Estelle T. Griswold who ended Comstock Law against Birth Control Pills, and Professor Timothy Leary who defeated the Marihuana Tax Stamp Act of 1937, which became the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. And here we are!”
“And who claims to be the great voice of the LEGAL movement? NORML. NORML wants to REFORM Marijuana Laws, not END PROHIBITION. 50 years of what? They’ve got SHEEPLE cheering for these legislated victories in State after State, and in every State there are PLANT PRISONERS, and in every State someone is getting busted for POT. In NO State can Police or Government Officials use it. In NO State is it available as part of your treatment on your Health Care Options, and in NO State is a Medical Marijuana Card respected by Employers who are Drug Testing You for Employment!”
“Professional Athletes cannot use it without getting busted, and POTHEADZ can get their Kids taken away! There is a Bill for RIGHT TO TRY if you are trying to stay alive and use new fangled pharmaceutical Drugs, but POT is not one of them! Yeah, we got LEGAL WEED! After decades of fighting the ENTITY to prove that POT is NOT a Drug, SHEEPLE now refer to it as a Drug to beg to get some! DIVIDE and CONQUER! MEDHEADZ V. POTHEADZ.”
“The Legal Industrial Complex realizes it can no longer have the monopoly on Cannabis, so they want to split the difference by handing us over to the Medical Industrial Complex.”
“Thus, here I remain, facing charges due to a BILL in a CRIMINAL COURT, demanding to face a VICTIM in the name of the LAW, and I am told that the STATE is the VICTIM, according to LEGISLATION that enfranchises Criminal Codes. I demand that the CRIMINAL COURT define my GUILTY ACT only to be told that I have VIOLATED a CONGRESSIONAL ACT, TO WIT: The CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT, amended from the CONTROLLED DRUG SUBSTANCES ACT, not only to silence the point that POT is not a Drug, but to keep their greatest enemy under wraps: HEMP!”
“LEGISLATION MAKES SLAVES OF US ALL! WHEN YOU STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS BY STANDING AGAINST THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS WE ALL FALL DOWN!”
“So, I am on an Island, alone. I reject all forms of Process to give me a portion of what is mine. I will not negotiate with the Carjacker to allow me to use my Car on the weekends. It’s MY Car!
“I go to Court and I am told by NORML, The “Nixon Organization of Reprehensible (Marijuana) Lawyers”, to join them on working to pass LEGISLATION. That is Politically motivated Judicial Bias, which is a Crime, to go along with Restraint of Trade. Perversion of Justice. There is No Victim.”
“When the Individual faces an Individual in a Court of Law, there is Justice. When the Individual answers to the ENTITY in a CRIMINAL COURT there is oppression.”
“Through these various PROHIBITIONS, Our Country is home to 25% of the Prison population, even though we represent 5% of the World. But it is far more insidious than that. These numbers do not include all those on Parole or Probation, and it does not count those sentenced to DRUG REHAB. America accounts for 1/2 of the arrests in the World. Two of three do not face a Victim – They answer to charges based on a BILL, that has been Legislated into existence.” So if the ENTITY did not have PROHIBITION, 2 of 3 of them would be gone. Judges, Lawyers, Bailiffs, Clerks, Transcribers, Jailers, Parole and Probation Officers, Bail Bondsmen and others. If Cops weren’t on FB as “Bob Smith” hunting POTHEADZ or on Craigslist pretending to be seeking Prostitutes, THEY WOULD BE OUT HUNTING THUGZ NOT DRUGS! Then there would be a Cop on every corner Protecting and Serving the People, and Criminals would be less likely to rear their ugly heads on Our Streets! Where would the ENTITY be then?”
“It doesn’t matter what you BELIEVE; it only matters how you BEHAVE.”~THE KINGPIN THORNE PETERS!

SINCE APRIL 3rd, 2018 Thorne Peters has been incarcerated in the prison system of MemphisTennessee.
As he fights for his own rights and OUR rights as a cannabis consumers, he also fights for prisoners rights from within the walls of the Penal Farm in Memphis.
A very in depth article has been published at “MemphisTruth.Org” in which Thorne Peters ordeal thus far has been featured. I encourage everyone to view it.
“We are political prisoners. We are having our rights violated by a prohibition.”
“We are consenting adults in a free society, with free will, committing acts of consensual behavior, that are nobody else’s business. Yet the Government industrial complex, the legal industrial complex, continue to make it their business.”
*Medical Pot – “Why can’t we all have pot?”
*Decriminalized Pot – Where can I buy some legal decriminalized pot?”
“There is no such thing as a non-violent criminal, all crime is violent”
As written in the U.S. Marijuana Party introduction, “More Americans are in jail today for marijuana offenses than at any previous time in American history.”
These people who are unjustly incarcerated are our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, children, cousins, other family members and friends. They do not deserve to be in a cage for a NON CRIME! We are NOT CRIMINALS! We are peaceful, law-abiding and loving Citizens who deserve the right to live in peace.
We must do everything we can to help these individuals fight for their own liberty and OURS!
The war will never be over until each and every one of these people are free and have all their rights restored.
CAN DO CLEMENCY .COM has many people who have been incarcerated for “Pot” for life sentences. Please view and share.
Meanwhile, while we wait to be free again …
Please call AMY WEIRICH; D.A., Memphis, TN (901) 222-1300
And also call the Tennessee Governor at (615) 741-2001 and say “investigate THE KINGPIN conspiracy…”
And last but not least, please DONATE to the “Freedom Fund”!
Remember to write to Thorne Peters at:
1045 Mullins Station Rd., Memphis, TN 38134 RNI# 389985.
Hearing from those who care means everything when you are in 23 and 1 lockdown.
Also remember to support other people who are being incarcerated for Cannabis charges! Below I have listed a few of them. Many thanks to Kerry Cannon who forwarded their names to me!
While we wait to see true justice served keep these and all prisoners in your thoughts and prayers daily and every chance you get write a letter or sign a petition or make your feelings about the issue known by following Activist’s and sharing thru social media !
Every little bit helps!
Long before Loretta Nall campaigned on her cleavage, the activist’s cause was cannabis. The Alabama resident gained national attention during her 2006 gubernatorial campaign when she produced T-shirts with the caption “More of these boobs …” (with a photo of Nall in a low-cut shirt) “… And less of these boobs” (next to photos of her opponents). But the write-in candidate’s political roots date back to 2002, when a misdemeanor arrest for possession was the spark behind her forming the U.S. Marijuana Party (USMJP). The group — which demands “an end to the unconstitutional prohibition of marijuana” — has official party chapters in seven states, including Colorado, Illinois and Kentucky. While Nall left the USMJP to be a Libertarian Party governor nominee, the group continues to back candidates in local, state and national elections under the leadership of Richard Rawlings, who is currently running for Congress in Illinois.

In 2003 I started my quest for knowledge regarding Cannabis and Medical Cannabis. In 2005 I met Ms. Tonya Davis and accompanied her to a few meetings and festivals in Ohio. There I met Lynne Wilson and also Rev. Mary Thomas Spears who has become my closest friend since then. I remember asking Tonya Davis in 2005 if there was a political way to beat the beast so to speak, and asked her about “REPEAL” but at the time most people were in to “Legalization”.
I went home, looked up the U.S. Marijuana Party as I had occasion to come upon it previously on the internet and had created an account there. I made a phone call to Richard Rawlings. I had posted on the then kentucky.usmjparty.com but it had been taken down right before I contacted him and in fact that was my reason for calling, to find out what happened to Kentucky.
It so happened that this was about the same time as the inquiry into Marc Emery was being made by the U.S. DEA for shipping Cannabis seeds by mail to the U.S. (See this Link). At the time I knew nothing about what was going on. Richard put the Kentucky site back up and gave me Administrator status over it. That was the beginning of my journey with the U.S. Marijuana Party.
From the beginning I was a “Repealer” and posted as such on the Kentucky site. But it would be a number of years before the Party itself crossed over to being a true repeal group.
About 20 or more States were lost after Marc Emery was indicted. I stayed on. I do not think I even realized that he had been involved with the USMjParty to any extent and I do not believe he did have any involvement, at least by the time I started in Kentucky which was 2005.
Eventually in 2010 Richard offered me V.P. status which I hesitantly accepted because I never wanted to be a politician, it just was not my line of work so to speak. However, after much thought I did accept and we continued on with the USMjParty even though there was no income to be had for doing it. It was a passion and a way of life – not one to collect “funds” from.
In 2011 Richard started to become ill and by the later part of 2011 I was forced into making a decision I did not want to make but it was part of the job. I called Bill Chengelis who was the Colorado Chair at the time and asked him to take Richard’s place as Head Chairman of the USMjParty. I would remain on as the Kentucky Chair until the position could be filled by someone else – but that never happened.
By 2012 Richard was diagnosed with Stage IV Cancer and we stayed together until his death in February 2013. He left me with all of his websites and the USMjParty.
I definitely did not want to be Head Chair so I decided that I would change my position considering what I had been left with to Organizer of USMjParty and I remained Kentucky Chair as well.
Since then I have focused around all the other people who have came in and out of the USMjParty as State Chairs and kept up the websites and other duties. Today we have Chairs in Colorado, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Utah , Vermont and Oregon as well as other reporting Chapters in Hawaii, Florida, California, Idaho, Virginia, Washington State, Texas, and there are others as well waiting for a Reporter. Please see this LINK for a Directory.
Today we push for REPEAL of the CSA as well as other Federal and U.N. laws which continue to dominate the Law even though Cannabis has been “legalized” in 23+ States. Federally it is still an illegal substance under U.N. law via the UN Convention on Psychotropic Substances (1971) . These are all grave issues which need to be addressed along with the commercialization and pharmaceutical takeover of this plant, which is in effect ONE plant…Cannabis Sativa L.
REPEAL is the only path to true freedom of this plant. If we let legalization and CSA Schedule II take it over we have lost the war for the common person who wishes to grow their own on their own property without taxation.
We are “FIGHTING FOR THE FREEDOM FROM PROHIBITION OF YOUR FREEDOM’S!”
