These speeches and documents show that the South seceded to protect slavery and insure white supremacy in the South.

Indiana’s religious freedom law was initially enacted to allow businesses a way to discriminate against LGBT customers. When Indiana became the focus of protests, the law was changed to prevent discrimination against customers based on sexual orientation, but now it’s being used by a church to challenge the state’s prohibition against marijuana.
Unpacking the Nixon Tapes: The Meaning of Marijuana for the U.S. Presidential Administration Which Created and Placed It in Schedule I
July 1st, 2015
In 1970, the Administration of United States President Richard Milhous Nixon drafted and successfully lobbied for ‘substance control’ legislation still in force today that forms the ideological basis of American national policy towards cannabis and psychedelics. The legislation implicitly encoded racist, homophobic, and bigoted views. While prejudicial views were not immediately obvious on the surface, as they were clothed in medical science and a structured review process, they were indeed present at the law’s inception and in its subsequent enforcement. We know this to be true, not only because such legislation marked a continuation of the same century-old pattern of authoritarian hatred towards psychoactive substance use behaviors in certain socially maligned groups, but also because the documented historical record shows that key members of the Nixon Administration, including Nixon himself, privately made their true ulterior intentions explicitly known.

Frustrated Planning Commission wants workshop to discuss possible changes....and Quiroz said Thursday she considers the sixth dispensary in line for District 6, Glass Tek at 9212 Mira Este Court, “by far the best” applicant.
HFN editor's note: Who the HELL Are ALL These People? Exactly Who? Where did they get their money, who represents them and who do they represent.
Many are the same people who've been working with the federal government to undermine our medicinal and spiritual rights to use cannabis as medicine, or sacrament, in America's Finest City. You know, in those "sealed cases" there is never any follow up on in "the media".
This is why we are IN the herb information business in the garrison town.
Here's how a long time "insider" put it to me this week: "there's this lawyer who for 100k can get you a license to sell weed in this city", which explains why there is never any meat on the bone, reporting-wise, as regards medical cannabis license's. With the way it is now, selling medical "marijuana" here is just another monopolistic mafia type scam, you are not fooling anybody "San Diego".
Back then, they were fronting for NORML, ASA, and most of their "clients", in the weed business's posing as "non profit collectives". Not much has changed, if you are paying attention. We have little safe access, and these folks are making bank.
We got you mofo's, we get it. This is still and always will be, a federally occupied zone. Unless regular herb folks wake up and actually use their minds, here in the DMZ!
Still not convinced? Consider this massive trail of legal breadcrumbs (and sealed "dead ends"), grasshopper, and tell me again ts all good in the 'hood, in "San Diego".
This is why "delivery" services abound, and scummy little unregulated slingers are selling god knows what as medicine. They keeping selling millions of dollars worth of "wax" to any dabber who has the 50 bucks a gram to spend, blowing up houses in our neighborhoods, but the status quo must be maintained, the money must flow to the lawyers and gangs, and we must accept it.
