If you get Pennsylvania on board, the state will also regulate hempseed products made for human consumption, so that could pave the way for industrial hemp production, since the state relies heavily on agriculture. There are a host of other states in the list below that are not already MMJ states. Washington state’s model saves them from reinventing the wheel and having to correct any mistakes along the way. They can just learn from whatever Washington state adjusts or rectifies along the way. Or they can consult with PUFMM – USA on facebook, which seems to have the market cornered, metaphorically, unlocking the plants fruit for the masses.

Facebook was a big player in the imperial modern day slavery machine. When they realized that Peaceful Desires were bringing people to unite against the machine that was destroying the people world wide through divide and conquer tactics they decided to join in the fun. Why resign like the rest of the fascist monsters, when after all, if you can’t beat ‘us, join ‘us. Don’t become a statistic.

The press arm for Anonymous has announced that it has begun its hacking spree for the 5th of November — Guy Fawkes Day — and claims to have dumped user and employee account information on accounts from PayPal, Symantec, Australian government Web sites and much more.
Monday’s main focus seems to be an anti-surveillance protest — as with the recentAnonymous October 20 protest — with November 5th intent aimed at surveillance systems such as TrapWire and INDECT.
Trapwire and INDECT’s opponents believe that the surveillance systems to be direct threats to privacy and certain civil freedoms and that their implementation could constitute human rights violations.
According to the various Anonymous Twitter accounts announcing the hacks and linking to document dumps, this is just the beginning of doc dumps and defacements for its day of protest. News of the protest is being shared on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Pastebin.
The hacktivists have also included in its Nov. 5th announcements tonight the hacking and defacement of Australian government sites, ImageShack and PayPal (claiming a zero day exploit), Ascension Australia, NBC.com and Lady Gaga‘s fan site (claimed for the spree by “Pyknic”), Saturday Night Live’s Web site, Australian steel and mining company Arcelor Mittal, homewares website GiftNow, the Greek City website, the Ghana Consulate Web site, and claim to have leaked VMware ESX Server Kernel source code via twitter today.
Anonymous Australia seems to be the most active at this time.
At the same time, the press arm for Anonymous has announced — via a press release on Pastebin — that it is rallying the public for an in-person V For Vendetta protest at The Houses of Parliament, at 8 p.m. in London.
Protesters in Canada will get a rude surprise if they don Guy Fawkes masks — because last week Canada’s House of Commons approved a bill that bans people from hiding their faces during riots.
We’re watching and following the developments as they happen.
And right now they’re happening fast — and furiously.
