This is the 5pm story

It's amazing to me that the laws in this country are so backwards.
3 officers of the law, including the head of narcotics, spent considerable amounts of time working on our arrest.
During that time, they were not out arresting violent offenders, "the real criminals." Where is the sense in this?
Your tax dollars are being wasted every day by arresting, trying, and incarcerating non-violent people who just want to be left alone.

Leave me alone!

This is the 9pm story

It is a fact that cannabis leads to spiritual awareness. It helps you feel closer to God!
The people in power know this, and they are using prohibition to "keep their subjects in order."
Prohibition is anti-God, anti-Jesus, and therefore anti-Christ. Read Revelations again and it will become crystal clear what's REALLY going on here.

The truth will make you free!

This is so not-cool! Has our court system lost their ever-lovin' minds? It's just a song! The kids had already practiced it for a previous performance, and with all the other "stuff" surrounding a graduation ceremony, it's no wonder they wanted to go with something they already knew. So what's the problem?

The Rutherford Institute
Bill Haymin

SEATTLE, Wash.--A federal district court has dismissed a lawsuit over a school's decision to forbid a student woodwind ensemble's performance of the instrumental piece "Ave Maria" at a high school graduation ceremony. Attorneys for The Rutherford Institute had filed suit against the Everett School District, charging that the school's actions violated student Kathryn Nurre's right to freedom of speech and to be free from hostility to religion.

In dismissing the case, the U.S. District Court in Seattle ruled that although music is considered a form of speech that can be protected, the school district was within its legal rights to control the content of any speech at the graduation ceremony in order "to keep religion out of graduation as a whole." Taking issue with the court's ruling that the school's actions did not violate Nurre's First Amendment rights, Institute attorneys plan to appeal the case.

A few days ago, we asked you to help send Lou Martinez, a Prop. 36 graduate and current drug treatment counselor, to the International Drug Policy Reform conference.  Your response, along with a couple of large gifts from private donors, not only raised enough to send Lou to New Orleans, but made it possible to offer scholarship assistance to other potential attendees! 

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, you can get more information on our website

The reasons to travel to the conference keep getting better…  We will have over 50 panels on a wide range of subjects, and we’re confirming new speakers from all across the drug policy reform spectrum every day.  You can see our programming – nearly complete! – here.

We’ve also just added a day-long training for the day before the conference, on December 5, called Harm Reduction Therapy: an Integrated Treatment for Trauma, Substance Abuse and Mental Illness.  Gulf Coast counselors and treatment providers can register for this training at a reduced rate, although it is open to all.  Along with the New Orleans Community Forum we’re planning for the Friday night of the conference, which will be free to conference attendees and New Orleans citizens, we’re continuing to make strides toward our goal to promote dialogue and positive change in the region.

The early registration deadline is coming up soon (November 5) and the scholarship deadline even sooner (October 22).  Be sure to check out the conference website, apply for a scholarship, and register to attend as soon as you can!

If you haven't had a chance to donate to the scholarship fund, it's not too late. You can do so here.

We hope to see you in New Orleans!
