      I never believed we'd reach 100 supporters, but now in just a few days we are approaching 1,000. Since this started the DEPT OF JUSTICE/DEA have increased their activities, now beginning to attack seeming 215/420 compliant operations...This has to stop.
      Please continue to support this dialogue by sending it to other groups and individuals and be sure to ask them to pass it on. We now have supporters in dozens of states outside CA and in several other countries.
      In solidarity:

      I agree with those who believe that the main reason marijuana was made illegal in the first place was to allow "guilt by association" to be used to remove hemp as competition to the then-emerging synthetic fibers of nylon and others. It's really mostly about unfair competition and mega-corporate power, just like the shutting down of the streetcars by American automobile and oil companies, to ensure people were forced to drive cars and use buses. Marijuana is no worse than alcohol, and we realized that alcohol prohibition was hugely problematic. That said, if ethanol started competing with petroleum...
