The Crusade against Cannabis keeps keeping on, but the skirmish lines are slowly shifting. From California to Canada, pot proponents are pushing back. But don't expect legalization any time soon. As libertarians are acutely aware, prohibition guarantees plunder and power for gangsters and governments alike, while the sick and the peaceful puffer serve only as prison fodder.
Herewith is a harvest of highlights from the Jihad on Joints.

DEA goons festooned in their favorite whup-ass paramilitary costumes swooped down upon an unsuspecting collective medical pot garden, legal in California, and pretended that 167 marijuana plants were Osama bin Laden. Some reefer raiders reportedly brandished assault rifles (a term usually reserved for Vast Right Wing Conspiracy Militia Gun Nuts) apparently fearful that the foliage might fight back. Arrested (and later released) were Valerie and Michael Corral, who ran the co-op pot plot. Special Agent Richard Meyer scoffed at the idea of "medical" marijuana. "We make no distinctions because there are none - people who grow marijuana are marijuana traffickers." By extraordinary coincidence, the Corrals helped write California's medical marijuana law.

Speaking of militias, many grass growers in Afghanistan switched from pot to cotton back when the whup-ass Islamic militia was playing DEA. But thanks to the US invasion, it's safe to grow the green stuff again. The reason for switching back is simple economics. Farmers can get about $100 for 2.2 pounds of hashish, 200 times, thanks to prohibition, what cotton pickin' pays. "When we're ready to sell," says one pot planter, "people in big cars will come from the bazaar in town. We don't know who they are, we just want the money." Wonder what Special Agent Richard Meyer would have to say about that.

We know what Special Agent Richard Meyer said when Santa Cruz, California Vice Mayor Emily Reilly announced that she and several City Council comrades planned to mete out medical marijuana to sick people (aka prison fodder) from the City Hall courtyard in response to recent federal raids on several medical pot facilities in the region. "Are you serious?" sputtered the Special Agent. "That's illegal. It's like they're flouting federal law. I'm shocked that city leaders would promote the use of marijuana that way. What is that saying to our youth?" It could be saying, "Question authority." It could be saying, "In America, common law is supposed to be developed from the bottom up, not imposed from the top down." Sorta like the way marijuana plants grow.

Speaking of California, Golden State expat Steve Kubby has become the first American to be granted a medical exemption from Canada's marijuana laws. He can now grow cannabis without fear of being whup-assed by people like Special Agent Richard Meyer. Steve and wife Michelle ditched the US for Canada after Steve was prosecuted for the audacity of using pot to actually stay alive. By extraordinary coincidence, Steve Kubby helped write California's medical marijuana law. Steve Kubby, incidentally, is now known to libertarians as The Former Libertarian Party of California Gubernatorial Candidate-in-Exile.
Switching states (as pot is known to cause one to do) the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) is planning to run new anti-pot propaganda on Michigan TV in an effort to subvert that state's ballot initiative which would mandate treatment rather than jail for low-level drug users (aka prison fodder). Put another way, the federal government will be directly interfering in a state level democratic process. And they'll be doing it with our tax money. By extraordinary coincidence, Clinton's former deputy press secretary confirmed, "The ONDCP is prohibited from involving itself in political causes in its advertising." What is that saying to our youth, Special Agent Richard Meyer?
