Entertainers caught with cannabis have had to do a Galileo type recanting to stay out of jail or to retain their television, endorsement, or nightclub contracts, etc. Some have had to go on television and denounce marijuana to stay out of jail (e.g., Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary, David Crosby, and actress Linda Carter). Our courts and legislators have sold our American guaranteed Bill of Rights, written on cannabis, to secure a cannabis-free world.
Dont suspect your neighbor, turn him in. Any hear say is to be reported. That which revolted us as childrenthe spectre of Nazis and Commies asking everyone to spy and inform on one another; Stalins secret police taking persons from their homes at night to administer stupefying drugs and extort information; a government spreading lies and creating a police statehas now become our everyday Amerikan reality.
And those who dare to stand against the tide of oppression face the prospect of financial ruin.
