Circle of Evil – highest ranking antiCannabis officials DOXed. Share This!!

For far too long the people of the cannabis community has battled a faceless enemy… that has been hiding behind  lies, different names, different titles, different positions of power, different corporations and corporate logos. This page with names and brief descriptions is an example of the over 400 Narco-Warriors that Team Vendetta has investigated, doxed, and compiled information on.  Let’s end their game. Starting with Dr. Kevin A Sabet; Obama and the Drug Czars Senior Drug Adviser.
Enough is Enough.

The Top Five Special Interest Groups Lobbying To Keep Marijuana Illegal

POSTED BY 

Last year, over 850,000 people in America were arrested for marijuana-related crimes. Despite public opinion, the medical community, and human rights experts all moving in favor of relaxing marijuana prohibition laws, little has changed in terms of policy.

There have been many great books and articles detailing the history of the drug war. Part of America’s fixation with keeping the leafy green plant illegal is rooted in cultural and political clashes from the past.

However, we at Republic Report think it’s worth showing that there are entrenched interest groups that are spending large sums of money to keep our broken drug laws on the books:

1.) Police Unions: Police departments across the country have become dependent on federal drug war grants to finance their budget. In March, we published a story revealing that a police union lobbyist in California coordinated the effort to defeat Prop 19, a ballot measure in 2010 to legalize marijuana, while helping his police department clients collect tens of millions in federal marijuana-eradication grants. And it’s not just in California. Federal lobbying disclosures show that other police union lobbyists have pushed for stiffer penalties for marijuana-related crimes nationwide.

2.) Private Prisons Corporations: Private prison corporations make millions by incarcerating people who have been imprisoned for drug crimes, including marijuana. As Republic Report’s Matt Stoller noted last year, Corrections Corporation of America, one of the largest for-profit prison companies, revealed in a regulatory filing that continuing the drug war is part in parcel to their business strategy. Prison companies have spent millions bankrolling pro-drug war politicians and have used secretive front groups, like the American Legislative Exchange Council, to pass harsh sentencing requirements for drug crimes.

3.) Alcohol and Beer Companies: Fearing competition for the dollars Americans spend on leisure, alcohol and tobacco interests have lobbied to keep marijuana out of reach. For instance, the California Beer & Beverage Distributors contributed campaign contributions to a committee set up to prevent marijuana from being legalized and taxed.

4.) Pharmaceutical Corporations: Like the sin industries listed above, pharmaceutical interests would like to keep marijuana illegal so American don’t have the option of cheap medical alternatives to their products. Howard Wooldridge, a retired police officer who now lobbies the government to relax marijuana prohibition laws, told Republic Report that next to police unions, the “second biggest opponent on Capitol Hill is big PhRMA” because marijuana can replace “everything from Advil to Vicodin and other expensive pills.”

5.) Prison Guard Unions: Prison guard unions have a vested interest in keeping people behind bars just like for-profit prison companies. In 2008, the California Correctional Peace Officers Association spent a whopping $1 million to defeat a measure that would have “reduced sentences and parole times for nonviolent drug offenders while emphasizing drug treatment over prison.” Continue reading

Michael Taylor: Monsanto’s Man in the Obama Administration

OCA Editor’s Note: Write President Obama to oppose the appointment of former Monsanto lobbyist Michael Taylor as a senior adviser to the Food and Drug Administration Commissioner on food safety.
Michael R. Taylor’s appointment by the Obama administration to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on July 7th sparked immediate debate and even outrage among many food and agriculture researchers, NGOs and activists. The Vice President for Public Policy at Monsanto Corp. from 1998 until 2001, Taylor exemplifies the revolving door between the food industry and the government agencies that regulate it. He is reviled for shaping and implementing the government’s favorable agricultural biotechnology policies during the Clinton administration.Yet what has slipped under everyone’s radar screen is Taylor’s involvement in setting U.S. policy on agricultural assistance in Africa. In collusion with the Rockefeller and Bill and Melinda Gates foundations, Taylor is once again the go-between man for Monsanto and the U.S. government, this time with the goal to open up African markets for genetically-modified (GM) seed and agrochemicals.In the late 70s, Taylor was an attorney for the United States Department of Agriculture, then in the 80s, a private lawyer at the D.C. law firm King & Spalding, where he represented Monsanto. When Taylor returned to government as Deputy Commissioner for Policy for the FDA from 1991 to 1994, the agency approved the use of Monsanto’s GM growth hormone for dairy cows (now found in most U.S. milk) without labeling. His role in these decisions led to a federal investigation, though eventually he was exonerated of all conflict-of-interest charges.

Taylor’s re-appointment to the FDA came just after Obama and the other G-8 leaders pledged $20 billion to fight hunger in Africa over the next three years. “President Obama is currently embedded in a bubble featuring some of the fervent promoters of the biotech industry and a Green Revolution in Africa,” says Paula Crossfield in the Huffington Post. Before joining Obama’s transition team, Taylor was a Senior Fellow at the D.C. think tank Resources for the Future, where he published two documents on U.S. aid for African agriculture, both of which were funded by the Rockefeller Foundation.

Cancer Evolves – By Nature

First of all, thank GOD to hear this great news.  Tell your friends today!!

Heterogeneity and evolution in a breast tumour.

CBS4 had this discovery report today at around 12:15PM in the afternoon.

THE LANDMARK DISCOVERY!!

I will try my best to re-report this discover per verbatim.

Researchers in Canada (scientists) have made whats being called the landmark discovery in the fight against breat cancer.  It could change the ways patients are treated and the way drugs are developed.  The scientists have figured out the way the patients DNA changes when a tumor is detected and thats very key.  This could stop the spread of the disease.

They have exposed completely exactly whats inside the of breast cancer tumor.  By figuring out all 3 billion letters in the tumors DNA sequence, they have zeroed in on cell mutations, shedding light on how this disease develops and spreads.

They never had the possibility to retrieve all of the sequence and all of the mutation present in any particular cancer.  The study marks such an important turning point in the fight against breast cancer, it landed on this weeks cover of the Journal of Nature.  The Canadian team map a genetic makeup of a breast cancer patients original tumour and compared it to the same patients tumour that spread 9 years later.  They saw exactly how the cancer evolved, by identifying each cell mutation.  This year alone more that 190,000 women here in the U.S. are expected to get breast cancer.  Doctors say this study could have huge implications for the development of new drugs and personalized treatments.

“We still subject a lot of women to treatments of uncertain benefit, and so anything that helps narrow the treatment focus down is gonna be of major events.” said a doctor.

So far researches have researches the genes in only one patients tumour, but new technology allows the doctors to map out a full patients tumour genes in only ONE week!

So they hope to start decoding a lot more soon and develop a database of every breast cancer tumour.
