20th February 007: Peter Till, a.k.a. Rock, the fellow who takes potted plants to court to show how harmless they are, just got thirty days imprisonment. Our hearts are with you Peter. Marc Emery admires your guts, and says you're in the next Cannabis Culture magazine anyway, due out mid March. Congrats. See you at MardiGrass!


A Call to Feet.

(or, "A Deadly Boring Serious Rave on Drug Law Reform")

The twenty first century is under way. Politicians indulge in phoney “holy wars” based on mob morality. We'll have no more trying to rise above destructive instincts any more if this trend continues. The fear button gets pushed a lot. In times like these it takes a leaf of faith to believe that cannabis law reform is possible. We have had a barrage of cannabis misinformation from the Australian Federal government and their grumpy-old-man media lackeys, as they’ve worked on the fear ducts of the general population, using the “drug war” as part of a push for more federal power over the states. It has seemed more of a cannabis war than a drug war.

When discriminatory laws are enacted by parliaments, the general populace is encouraged to also discriminate. This is a sad thing in a democracy, to see a minority “officially” discriminated against, but as many fatherly voices have said in the past, “the price of liberty is eternal vigilance”. This is normally thought of as vigilance against outside enemies, but there are always those within a democracy that will try to manipulate the process and distort the truth to fit their own beliefs. Humanity has to be eternally on guard against politicians that wilfully encourage social divisions that serve their interests. Cannabis can be a good distraction from children overboard, deported citizens, wheat boards, or media conjecture over signs of Prime Ministerial senility.

If that’s what getting high on your own morality is like, I’d rather smoke pot. Do we want a future where everyone runs around terrorizing each other, no co-operation, all competition, in an atmosphere of mutual distrust and fear, or a future where human beings not only tolerate each other, but treat each other with dignity and work together for the best possible future for all the world's children. Which of those is worth working for?

It is unfortunate that there is no strong voice to put the lie to the recent cannabis propaganda push, but success does not come from wailing, gnashing or doing nothing. The public service and the ABC have been neutered, so it is more important than ever that we show opposition to unjust laws, and be brave enough to be counted. The Nimbin MardiGrass is an opportunity to do just that.

Friends, citizens and visitors; lend us your feet! Come and stand with us. Lets wave the leaf together, and hold our heads high.
