Free Means Free

Pills, butts and booze. For nearly eighty years those have pretty much been our only legal options in this country, and indeed around the world. Americans have been lied to frightened bullied marginalized brutalized locked up and even gunned down. Socially economically politically culturally and spiritually manipulated and coerced into giving up their right to choose anything outside of an industrial-age trio of mostly toxic and addictive manufactured products.

Had enough? Have you finally had enough of elected, appointed and self-appointed leaders like Patrick Kennedy (?!) telling you what you can and can’t use for medicine for fun for solace for courage reflection inspiration motivation connection for communion or to just chill out?

Wake up Americans! It’s time to use that thing in your hand to discover the convenient truth about a certain forbidden flower that must not be named-CANNABIS! Listen. Do yourself your family your friends your community this nation and the planet a favor.

Open your eyes for god sakes! In Colorado it’s looking like a miracle medicine that just happens to come with its own enterprise frontier of green jobs and opportunities. Meanwhile, back in Prohibitionland…

Marijuana legalization is a bad idea. It sends the wrong message to children and besides the US Antipot Research Institute in Washington DC says that stuff can snare you like a rabbit and make you crazy…and without more research do we really want to risk legalizing a drug with euphoric effects when—


Just Google a name or two: Rick Simpson Shona Banda Donna Lambert Brave Mykayla Comstock tragically departed Cash Hyde Charlotte’s Web Run from the Cure… By all means put the kids on it because of course they need to learn the truth too. And the truth is that cannabis is an all-natural medicine for adults, and for sick kids pets and livestock in the care of adults.

And don’t even bring up the smoking! That’s Mary Jane, she’s the party girl in the cannabis family. Sure she’s fun and creative bright and inspirational, and while she may not be the best choice for all your healing needs, a toke or a vape can work as medicine. Why? That’s what cannabis is; medicine.

Want proof? Green dragon cannabis tincture. Ancient medicine. Queen Victoria, loved it. Her private physician JR Reynolds swore by it. Here in America Sir William Osler, founder of John Hopkins University—our father of modern medicine—he hailed cannabis tincture as the most satisfactory remedy for migraines.

These days patients treating themselves in the privacy of their own lives (imagine that) report it works for insomnia depression anxiety stress chronic pain restless legs fibromyalgia hangovers... And possibly the most remarkable news to emerge from the shadows is that green dragon can help patients battling ruinous and deadly addictions to alcohol, pills and powders.

It’s beautiful medicine. And get this. Green dragon is nothing more than (search word alert) decarboxilated (heated) cannabis soaked in pure grain alcohol, strained then (carefully because it’s flammable) simmered down to about eight drops strong.

Liquid weed. Exotic potent fiery emerald green drops in a stealthy little tinted vial. A Dionysian remedy from a time before the Great Prohibition. Safe, effective and not the least bit physically addictive. Available now, but only through the cannabis underground because our government forbids the use of grain alcohol for anything other than getting really really drunk.

In cannabis country we don’t buy into that crap anymore. Prohibition-era laws are going away because they’re wrong. And we ALL have a right to choose cannabis because it’s a plant. Christians! Genesis 1:29, right? 

Weed’s ours! God said! -cannabis 1:29

Mr. President members of Congress Federal State and Local prohibitionists industrialists drug war loyalists moralists nannies, naysayers hand-wringers and pot-bashers throughout this free country. Here this! Cannabis prohibition is finished in America and so goes the world. The war is over. Your side lost. Stand down, come clean and let the healing begin.

As for NORML and all the other legalization organizations: Thanks but we don’t need donor-supported lawyers on the beltway negotiating the terms of our freedom because there are no terms to freedom. Free means free. And that goes double for hemp.

Sleeping with the Dragon

Americans suffering from sleeplessness brought on by a range of ailments (aches/pains, fibromyalgia, MS, restless legs, racing mind, PTSD, stress, depression) are in for a happy awakening.

Green dragon cannabis tincture, a fiery ancient extract made with pure grain alcohol (>10 drops/dose) is arguably the finest medicine nature has to offer. Since there are no after effects, sleep-deprived patients awake feeling clear-headed and OMG! RESTED!

Unlike many modern sleep aids, cannabis is not toxic and not physically addictive. Overdosing on concentrated THC can be unpleasant to the extreme, but cannabis doesn’t kill the careless; it makes them smarter.
Cannabis truth is rising fast as patient pioneers treat themselves and share what they learn. Sooner than most people imagine, mainstream Americans will finally wake up and demand back the right to choose their own medicines—in private. And as America restores cannabis patient rights, so goes the world.

Denver Post letter on Cannabis Freedom

Green dragon cannabis tincture is non-toxic
and not the least bit physically addictive

But only through the cannabis underground
Note that green dragon extracts made with pure grain alcohol
and organic Colorado cannabis can go for $300/oz.
...and all that that implies

Free Means Free
NOT void where prohibited

Prohibition has no place in a free country, Mr. President. End it, sir.

Cannabis prohibition, like alcohol prohibition before it, is being dismantled state by state, by the will of the people. Americans who think that’s a bad thing either have a vested interest in the way things are, or they haven’t done the research. Because behind the smoked party drug image so brilliantly propagandized for nearly a century lays a most convenient truth, an amazing secret hidden for generations.
Cannabis is a non-toxic, not physically addictive ancient medicinal flower that is (when used properly, of course) totally safe, even for children and pets. As tincture and oil, cannabis is proving effective for some of the most common ailments of these frenzied times; alcohol and pill abuse, insomnia, stress, migraines, depression, fibromyalgia, MS, ADHD, PMS, PTSD, late-night barking…
Naysayers search US patent 6,630,507; Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants, filed back in 2003 by none other than Health and Human Services, the same agency that continues to insist that marijuana is bad, all bad. And these are the people We the People are taking orders from? Wake up Americans! Read the declaration the founding fathers risked their lives to compose. It says we have the right as free people to decide what’s best for our bodies, our families and our lives.
The inevitability of re-legalization has many fearing the worst; that reefer madness will rip through neighborhoods, claim the sanity of our children and spike healthcare costs. Hand-wringers need only look to capacity-crowd cannafests for proof of weed’s safety in numbers across a wide demographic.
Since their rise in the sixties marijuana freedom gatherings have always attracted families and people of all ages, all races, and all political and religious persuasions. They mass together—sometimes in the rain—to learn, share, and get stoned a lot, because that’s the point.  As a long-term population study, cannabis-only festivals provide clear evidence that the norm really is a positive vibe of peace, love and understanding.
The exciting news for Middle Americans struggling to make ends meet is that cannabis freedom comes with its own enterprise frontier—one that provides jobs and opportunities at every step in the delivery chain. Demand for secure, safe and legal indoor grow ops, for example, is creating a lucrative new specialty field for plumbers, electricians, carpenters, air control experts and security system technicians. As the frontier expands there’ll be good jobs for professionals in finance, accounting, administration, marketing, production, and education.
Washington, of course, denies such a frontier even exists, while at the same time using every agency in the fold to disrupt, discredit and hold back the cannabis trades; medical, recreational and hemp, that farm-country marvel with a bright future in plastics, building materials, food products, paper, textiles, energy and fine lubricants. Despite economic sanctions such as harsh tax rules and a banking embargo, the budding cannabis industry is doing well, and generating solid revenues in states that restore those liberties.
When the Epilepsy Foundation declared last year that access to cannabis should not be determined by one’s zip code they spoke for all patients and families caring for patients. The right to choose and responsibly use the full bounty of nature’s gifts is, in Christian terms, a God-given, human right (Genesis 1:29). Americans gave up that right in service to the industrial revolution, and very soon they’re going to wake up and want it back.

Prohibition has no place in a free country, Mr. President. End it, sir. If you don’t, your successor will surely have to.

Shona's Secret

Cannabis patient rights pioneer Shona Banda is fighting for her life. Again. The first time she survived a nearly fatal bout with Crohns by treating herself with THC oil she learned to make from Rick Simpson’s YT classic Run from the Cure.

Now Shona’s been dragged into drug war hell for secrets she was forced to keep as a citizen living under prohibition. Making cannabis concentrates—in the presence of a child, especially—for herself and fellow cannabis patients is a serious crime in Kansas and in many other states. She’s been branded a criminal, and worse, an unfit mom. She’s facing thirty years for defying grossly un-American laws. The ‘good’ news is her story might just be enough to end the war.

The big reveal in this saga is that Ms. Banda is alive only because of a most convenient truth; cannabis is a non-toxic, not physically addictive medicinal flower that is (when used properly, of course), totally safe, even for children and pets; an ancient remedy that can work for some of the most common ailments of these ‘progressive’ times; alcohol abuse, insomnia, stress, migraines, depression, fibromyalgia, MS, ADHD, PMS, PTSD, late-night barking…

Doubters search US patent 6,630,507; Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants, filed back in 2003 by none other than Health and Human Services, the same agency that continues to insist that cannabis is bad, just bad. And these are the people We The People are taking orders from? Wake up America!

In the waning years of prohibition, 20th-century industrialists have every right to be pissed. The cannabis trades are booming, despite every attempt by a hoard of Federal agencies to dismiss, disrupt and intimidate ganjapreneurs. Cannabis patients and fans alike are leaving the ‘pills butts and booze’ drug reservation in droves; choosing their favorite forbidden flower for medicine because it works, treating themselves in private because it’s nobody’s business but their own, and sharing the truth they discover with anyone who will listen.

Treating yourself in private—using doctors for diagnosis and emergency care and taking care of the rest with herbs, flowers, good food and practices—drives drug prohibitionists crazy--a third choice between greedy and frightened; it's just a flower, madam.

So now a lad with cannabis country smarts dares to stand up to drug warriors he knows are full of shit—and unwittingly unleashes on his family the very worst of America. The eleven-year-old is detained. Authorities are notified. His mom, Shona Banda, no less, arrested and charged.

Sorry Kansas. We’re Americans first. Our lives. Our bodies. Our right to explore, choose and responsibly use nature’s bounty of options. For Christians in the know it’s Genesis 1:29; Cannabis is ours; God said.

And boy oh boy, just wait until Middle Americans find out about all this! Washington will have some serious explaining to do. And soon after that, America’s longest and most indefensible war will be over.

Stay strong Shona; we’ll get you out of this.

Tunes to make our quiet revolution less so...

GOT TRIM? Barter for Green Dragon Tincture. The Real Thing; 8 drops strong

Care Growers! Here’s an opportunity to turn ‘hash-grade’ trim into ancient medicine that also happens to be the world’s finest hangover remedy—and a powerfully therapeutic non-smoked option for patients. Flavor choices; peppermint, spearmint and lavender. Our lab can also create customized flavors, strength profiles and packaging.

The Dragon Returns
Stealthy, slow-starting and long-lasting, green dragon cannabis tincture is a Dionysian remedy from a time before the Great Prohibition. This concentrated THC in a dark dropper vial connects us to our pharmacological past—ancient potions, forgotten remedies, salves, lotions, ointments, syrups and miraculous elixirs. Until the 1920's, cannabis tincture was available at every neighborhood pharmacy.  Then came the industrial age where hemp and cannabis were banned and demonized because they were a competitive threat.

The Truth Squirts
After nearly eighty years, prohibition-era propaganda has ‘successfully’ turned the world against cannabis. Entire populations are now under the impression that marijuana is just pot, a smoked party weed some folks call medicine; probably no better than alcohol.
That’s why this green dragon is so important. Since a good dose only takes a few drops, this extract looks and acts like ‘modern’ medicines—except it won’t kill careless patients!

High-value Medicine from Trim
This arrangement is an advocacy program that puts vials of Green Dragon XX (gdxx) into the hands of growers who will introduce their friends, family and clients to this ancient medicine. Yield from one pound of bone-dry trim ranges from 8-12 fluid ounces of ‘eight drops strong’ gdxx (see pic for current market value). Vials come with information wraps; history, applications and safe use.

Barter Split
We generally process in one-pound batches but can work with as little as 4 ounces. Our lab covers all expenses; alcohol, processing and packaging. The lab/grower split is 50-50 for the first five pounds processed and 40-60 for the second five pounds. After ten pounds our regular clients receive 80% of the yield on all processing.

Pick-up and Delivery
Let’s arrange to meet up somewhere between Boulder and Lafayette. Cost for pick-up and delivery in the Boulder/Denver area; 6 drams.

Toon: The Circus on the Way to a Place Called FREEDOM

This panel was inspired by the work of misguided religious leaders, oh-so last-century moralists and prohibitionists, greedy industrialists and lying politicians.

The best example of the CRAZY in the waning years of cannabis prohibition is that while the US Surgeon General recently admitted that cannabis is medicine, the flower still remains listed as a Schedule 1 substance.

Richer still is the fact that Washington uses every agency it has to disrupt and hold back the rise of the cannabis trades, and yet, since 2003, the US has held a patent on the medicinal effectiveness of cannabinoids! US Patent # 6630507 was filed by Health & Human Services, the same agency that is still saying non-toxic cannabis is so dangerous even research ought to be carefully managed.

On the advocacy side of the circus the legalization forces have focused on the casual smoked aspects of cannabis, which is exactly what prohibition propaganda has been 'pushing' for nearly 80 years. Prior to the big drive to demonize this natural healing flower, cannabis was well known as medicine in the form of tincture. Laudanum, an opium tincture, was in all drug stores as well, but unlike cannabis tincture, was extremely addictive and potentially fatal. With the invention of pills and injectables both medicines fell from popular use because the 'modern' stuff was so easy to use.
