Le Monde.fr - Actualité à la Une Smell the Truth » War on marijuana unconstitutional, doctors testify in federal court Monday The federal government tries to justify its war on marijuana Monday The U.S. government claims marijuana is a dangerous, addictive drug with no medical benefits. But that claim will be up for debate Monday in California when a federal judge is scheduled to hear testimony from doctors that conclude the opposite. Doctors Carl Hart, Associate Professor of Psychology at Columbia University, retired physician Phillip Denny, and Greg Carter, Medical Director of St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute in Spokane, Washington will testify Monday that marijuana — real name, “cannabis” — is not the demon drug the federal government makes it out to be. Accepted science does not justify the listing of cannabis as a dangerous “Schedule I” substance, many say. “[I]t is my considered opinion that including marijuana in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act is counter to all the scientific evidence in a society that uses and values empirical evidence,” Dr.
Mamfakinch Ungarn will sich nicht am Kalten Krieg gegen Russland beteiligen Ungarns Premier Vikor Orban geht auf Distanz zur EU und wirft der US-Regierung vor, einen neuen Kalten Krieg gegen Russland anzetteln zu wollen.

Online Alternative News Sites to be Blacked out During next Major Catastrophic Event? According to what I’m hearing from several sources in my network of contacts, the U.S. government is putting systems in place to black out online news sites like Natural News, Drudge Report, The Blaze and many others. A practice run that took place earlier this week in California has already achieved this result and confirmed the technical ability to make it happen at will. The recent outage of news sites experienced by internet users in California was reported by this article on BeforeItsNews.com and confirmed by The Washington Times, The Blaze and other sites. The Natural News reader service team also recorded numerous complaints from California users who were unable to reach our website even though our site was fully functional and serving pages worldwide. What was especially telling about this outage is that it only affected online news sites while allowing other internet traffic to flow normally. The selective targeting proves that this was not a general outage.
