Welcome to the Cannaba Verum podcast, the cannabis truth podcast. I speak the language of cannabis freely and uncensored, while educating my audience on the safe use of this live Plant Therapy. You should know what’s in your cannabis, what’s good and what’s not. It does not come with an FDA stamp of approval yet, using cannabis mindfully, as medication is a different concept in the healthcare philosophy of the past 100 years. There’s a lot to learn and consider cannabis is not dangerous, but it is not harmless, either. This is honey Smith walls, a 21st century cannabis shaman here to explain the language of cannabis in historical, political, and scientific terms, so you can make educated decisions about the medicine you ingest.
Hello my friends,
I heard this story on the podcast called Great Moments in Weed History a couple months ago and faithfully repeated the whole thing to my band recently. Their minds were blown. I’d like to relay it again but do yourselves the favor of listening to the original guys tell it the way they do with more detail. It’s their story and they do it justice. I’ll tell you how to find it later… But until you get there…
Once upon a time there was a political activist in MI named John Sinclair who got busted for having two joints. The law slapped him in prison for ten years. 5 years for each joint. He was obviously being targeted for his political activism. The year is 1971 and Nixon unhappily signs the 26th Amendment-The Voting Rights for 18 yr olds in the middle of the Draft for the Vietnam war. What do ya think THAT’s gonna tell him in the upcoming election?
The famous musician, John Lennon and his Asian girlfriend, Yoko Ono are in NY on a work visa creating his first solo album, (Imagine what it was?)
He began speaking out against the war and did his first concert in 5 years to bring awareness about John Sinclair sittin in prison for ten years over two joints.
You can see a video of that event and listen to John Lennon’s song called Ten for Two in front of a huge audience while he strums his guitar and reads his lyrics off a windy piece of paper out on a bright summer day. Find the link on my site where all Cannaba Verum podcast scripts are with copious details. https://youtu.be/fZJLInCgem8
A lot of other famous political players like musician Stevie Wonder, poet laureate Alan Ginsburg and political activists from the Black Panthers joined in and after the concert, John Sinclair walked out of prison with 8 years left. Then, MI Supreme Court ruled the state law banning cannabis unconstitutional as cruel and unusual treatment!
John Lennon began using his voice politically after the success with helping John Sinclair. He said “Apathy doesn’t work and Flower Power didn’t work but so what, we move on and figure it out.” And in other words, failure is only a lesson to success!
This movement motivated his musical energy towards changing our society into a more equitable place to exist. Imagine.
But Nixon was already a psychotic, bigoted and controlling president … he went after Lennon to shut him up. Nixon had no clout with the teens he was sending to die in Vietnam and allowing the voting age to lower didn’t bode well for the next election. Who wants to go to war? Except the ones in control who DON’T HAVE TO GO!
J Edgar Hoover, head of FBI, jumps in the game along with Segregationist Strom Thurman, who partnered with Joe Biden to create the most stifling awful regulations like Mandatory Minimums that put millions of people of color behind bars for non-violent crimes, resulting in the largest prison population in history, and ruined our society with lies and misinformation just to enslave and control people of color.
I truly think old grandpa joe is the right guy for now… but I sure as hell hope he makes up for THAT grotesque blunder! He’s got a lot of clean up on isle 45 and all those before it.
Last I heard… 112 of the 600+ stolen border babies have been reunited with their families. So it looks like he’s trying to correct some of the offenses which that former racist murdering bastard did in the last 4 years. As you can see, I’m not shy about calling him out for what he did to this country. And I’m calling Joe Biden out too.
We are aware that he now recognizes cannabis science which didn’t seem to matter back then… So until I see Joe Biden make a real cannabis change, then I hold my opinion in reserve. What was that phrase he used to use? Trust but Verify?
The difference, is that Joe Biden has empathy. He’s already sent the FEMA coordinators and a bunch of women down to the border to help with the onslaught of child and baby toddler immigrants trying to walk into our country. Imaging their parents, so fearful for their little lives they began sending them away from savage harm into the mess and puzzle of unknowns we now have down there… and alone. That’s parental desperation in the midst of survival.
Back in the 70’s, South Carolina Republican Senator Strom Thurman considers it a strategic move to get John Lennon’s VISA revoked so he couldn’t perform and influence the youngsters against the republican dream… war.
Immigration & Naturalization Service (the INS) deported Yoko and John. The same INS that eventually turned into the shameful ICE who caged border babies and kids in the era of Trump.
John Lennon had a 1968 criminal record in the UK regarding hash that always prevented him from travel without a waiver. It was always hard for them to be in the US because of the red tape. So when the government came after them and refused to renew their visa’s, the case against John Lennon vs the United States began.
Yoko’s ex-husband would not allow their daughter to see her mother, much less visit her outside the US. That’s why John and she were trying to live here. But Yoko’s ex-husband kept fleeing with their daughter, evading custody battles. And John Lennon was on Nixon’s enemy list.
John and Yoko were harassed and threatened and tailed by police and FBI tapped their phones. Lennon’s legal team fought this harassment and created the foundation for what later became DACA, the Dreamer’s Act.
Because deportation meant never seeing her daughter again.
There’s a huge story about a court appearance that includes one of today’s most prominent cannabis specialists, Dr. Lester Grinspoon… actually we just lost Dr. Grinspoon in July 2020. But way back when, he was the expert witness in John Lennon vs US and saved the day by giving the ignorant legal dealers in court a scientific runaround that freed John.
You gotta hear the rest of this story wherever you listen to podcasts. Great Moment in Weed History is the name of the podcast and you’re mind will be totally blown when you hear the creative defense John and Yoko came up with!
It was truly brilliant.
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Livin’ life in peace
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one…
I declare awareness and citizenshiip of Nutopia.
