Governments If You Really Want To Stop Heroin And Opiate Deaths: Then Legalize Marijuana Now

 

I know that there are folks who have read this title and had all kinds of different emotions flow over them and this is understandable. Here in the U.S. big government and big media have a long history of distorting what the truth is concerning marijuana. I credit the mainstream media for simply being stupid and running with whatever the federal government tells them. Big government and by big government I do mean from city, county, state and federal organizations where some are just ignorant, some are corrupt, and some are both concerning the concept of making marijuana legal again for the people to consume like a lot of folks do wine, champagne or beer. Yet it has been in the interest of different governments, police agencies and some big lobbyist groups to keep marijuana illegal for their own financial profits they make from such an hypocritical system. Now I know that a lot of folks who read my articles are a bit confused about my stance on legalizing marijuana or even mad at me because the underlying theme on by blog is Christianity. This is true, yet what is the title of my blog site? It is Truth Troubles isn’t it? In my belief system Christianity is Truth so truth troubles is about speaking the truth even if it is something that goes against what we hear in Church, the media, or from the government. Throughout Scripture in the Old Testament and the New Testament we are told many times that wine and alcohol were given to us humans for our enjoyment, but we are also told not to be gluttonous when we are partaking of them. God also gave mankind plants like Mandrake for our enjoyment. Remember back to the founding Fathers of Israel, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, remember Isaac had two wives of which his favorite was Rebecka and how she gave his other wife some of her Mandrake so that she could get to sleep with Isaac that night even though it wasn’t her turn? Mandrake does the same type of things as marijuana does as far as giving a person a ‘buzz’, if it is okay for the founding Fathers of Israel and their wives, you get the picture? Even here in America our own Founding Fathers like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin grew pot in their own personal gardens. Think about this for a moment, the night that Rebecca got to sleep with Isaac when it wasn’t her turn is the night she was impregnated with Jacob, the man who’s 12 sons the 12 tribes of Israel are named after. Remember that the first reported miracle of Jesus was turning water into wine and no it was obviously not ‘grape juice’ or the ‘governor’ of the party would not have referred to it as the best. As Christians we all have to quit acting like hypocrites on these issues.

 

I was born in 1956 and the first time I ever tried ‘pot’ was when I was 17, it was just some cheap homegrown that was so weak that it didn’t do anything to me. I was probably about 22 or 23 before I smoked marijuana again yet I was around lots of folks who did smoke it literally every day  when they could afford to buy it. In fact just about everyone I knew smoked it at least every once in a while. Most all of these people that I have known throughout the years didn’t even drink alcohol and if they did it was just an occasional beer. None of these people used any of the ‘hard drugs’ like Crack, Heroin or were users of pills. A lot of the people that I have known throughout my life who were able to keep smoking a little ‘pot’ in the evenings and on weekends at their homes never ever did go onto other type of drugs, not even alcohol. The Government and the big Media like to call marijuana a “gateway” drug, saying that when most people start off smoking pot that they progress into the harder drugs, the way in which they frame their argument is a lie, period.

 

The people that I know who have gone onto harder drugs like Heroin and opioid pills is because those drugs tend to flush out of a person’s system in about 72 hours. People have always throughout human history have wanted to have something they can have for relaxation and for a gentle ‘buzz’. When the U.S. Government decided to act stupid and classify marijuana a level one drug like Heroin and encouraged all businesses to start doing pre-employment and random drug screens on their workers almost all of the people that I know quit smoking marijuana because it stays in a person’s system for at least 30 days and they could not afford to lose their jobs. Most all of the people that I know who did quit smoking pot started drinking alcohol in place of it. Unfortunately there are millions of people who instead of smoking marijuana did turn to the real hard drugs. So, in a since, yes marijuana did become a ‘gateway’ drug in that people quit using it because it stayed in their systems so long that millions of people who would have never gone onto drugs other than marijuana have done so and the result is thousands of people are dying every year because of these hard drugs. Marijuana has never ever even killed one person! Now let’s look at states like Colorado since they made marijuana legal for adults, checkout the amount of overdose deaths from before they made marijuana legal and then sense they made it legal. I am no computer whiz to say the least so I will leave your investigations up to you, but I do ask you to check out the stats. I remember reading a Colorado newspaper online about two or three months ago concerning this issue and the results were rather stark, the amount of overdose deaths are way down as they are in Washington State.

 

Truth is that all this “war on marijuana” has done is to put a lot of money into drug cartels pockets and cost hundreds of thousands of people their lives. Our Nation’s policies are idiotic, un-Christian and un-Jewish as well as being immoral. If our government was really interested in cutting down on overdose deaths from these hard drugs thus cutting down on the amount of these drugs coming into our country and giving drug cartels billions of dollars each year then they would create a system where pot is treated like beer or wine. Marijuana should be made to be cheaper than Heroin, Morphine or Crack. States who have actually done what the people of their states have voted for (when they have been allowed to vote on the issue, places like here in Kentucky refuse to allow a vote on it) the States have benefited with hundreds of millions in new tax revenue along with creating thousands of new jobs to help spur their economies. When our Government decided to create this “war on drugs” they through their own ignorance and hypocrisy took a benign medically helpful God-given Erb away from the people and have been the driving force behind the reason that millions of people worldwide are now dead. If our Nation was actually serious about stopping thousands of people from dying each year to drug overdoses then they need to get a clue and make marijuana totally legal in Our Country just like beer and wine is.

Poem About Mandrake: Islam Says It Is The Devil’s Flower: Here Is Why

Poem About Mandrake: Islam Says It Is The Devil’s Flower: Here Is Why

 

Mandrake, are you the Devil’s flower

In Islam you are so-called you see

The reason is plain and simple

But most of the world is blind to thee

How could you a God-given herb

In any way be a controversy

Go back in time about four thousand years

Back before the first seed of Islam ever appeared

You’re beautiful seed like all green herbs

A gift given from God to man like Pot and Peyote

Given for enjoyment and relaxation to calm the Soul

But some how now to partake of you hypocrites call it a sin

Back a long time ago before God’s Prophets were on the land

Abraham the father of many, this is where the story began

His sons Ishmael then Isaac who begat Jacob, called Israel

Mandrake the history that is Israel began one night with thee

Isaac was married to two sisters, back then it was okay to be

He rotated from tent to tent each night in his attempt to please

Rebecca was his favorite wife but this night was not her turn to be

For this night was her sister Leigh’s turn with Isaac to be with her

Rebecca the smart one had lots of Mandrake but Leigh had none of thee

This night Rebecca wanted Isaac and Leigh wanted a buzz from thee

Mandrake flower, Leigh pleased, this night Isaac impregnated Rebecca

Not with just any child, but with one who changed all of world history

Boy child born whom his parents called Jacob, twelve sons in his loins to be

The Lord God would soon change his name to Israel, meaning God strives

The twelve sons the twelve names of the twelve tribes of God’s nation, Israel

Through hate and jealousy is why Islam calls Mandrake the Devil’s flower?

Ohio Family Of 8 Are Dead Because Of Ignorant/Evil Marijuana Laws?

 

Most everyone in the whole world that has ever heard of the United States has heard of and or felt the pure evil of the American governments ‘WAR ON DRUGS”. Here in the States when the federal government decided to “crack down” on the American people’s use of “pot” they created criminal organizations that has caused the lives of thousands of people not just here in the States but throughout the ‘Americas’, North and South. Before this evil that the Federal Government has forced upon the populace’s here in America far more people smoked pot, but drank a lot less alcohol. Many people who I know who used to smoke pot did not drink at all or at most just an occasional beer. Once companies started being ordered to do pre-hire drug test and random drug tests of their employees people quit smoking God’s given gift to the human race. You see pot stays in a person’s body for about 30 days so people not wanting to lose their jobs, homes, vehicles, and children turned to drinking a lot of alcohol which just turns people violent. Plus, there is the fact that pain pills, cocaine, crack and acid only stay in a person’s system about three days. So this war on pot has directly caused a major increase in the use of these much harder drugs. This has given criminal gangs a bigger market for their narcotics that would not exist if not for ignorant American politicians. When people smoke pot, they don’t want to fight or kill, the same is the opposite when people drink too much  booze. Think of the Indian tribes of old, do you remember them smoking ‘peace pipes’ with the Generals of the Pony Soldiers? You smoke pot, you don’t then go do violence. Pot mellows people, it does not jack people up and make them want to be violent. Even in the Old Testament a flower called Mandrake was condoned by the founding fathers of Israel for personal use and Mandrake is a stronger version of pot. Those whom want to out law pot are either doing so out of ignorance, stupidity, hypocrisy, or, because they are making a lot of money condoning other things and don’t want the competition.

 

There is also the absolute fact that thousands would be alive now in Mexico if the American politicians had never made pot illegal. In Mexico the American government created a venue for the creation of these murderous gangs. Mexico used to have a horrible economy, it is getting some better now, but in a sense our government created jobs for some of the people in Mexico and South America, just not the kind of jobs our politicians envisioned, because of their lack of vision. I have spoken with many people who have moved to the United States because of the violence and lack of jobs in their home land. We want to talk about our porous southern border yet it is our policies that cause many thousands to need to come here for work and for safety as they are trying to get away from the violence and poverty of their homelands. Most all of these transplanted people who I have spoken with have told me they would much rather be in their own country but their families are starving and they are trying to escape the violence, this is why they have brought their families here. The American police agencies also know very well that there are now many thousands of gang members from Mexico and other Southern Nations that are now here in America pushing drugs and violence. We helped create these monsters with our nations ignorant drug policies. If pot were made legal as if it were alcohol we would be bankrupting many of these violent gangs both here in the States and in Mexico and other southern Nations.

 

I am a service connected disabled veteran who has a lot of nerve pain from a lightning strike. I have been taking the highest levels of Gabapentin that the law allows for the nerve pain for many years now. If I miss a couple of doses I soon know that I missed them by the increase in the pain. It is not a narcotic, I used to be given Morphine 2 times a day and Hydrocodone 4x a day for pain. Problem is narcotics do not help with nerve pain but if you have pot in your system at all the VA doctors will cold turkey a person off of all their pain meds which can easily kill people but the VA obviously does not care about that issue. I, just like millions of other vets know that pot short circuits the pain signals from the injured areas to the brain, this gives relief that narcotics can’t do. I stopped the narcotics years ago telling the VA I was going to use pot instead because of the simple fact that although the narcotics does help with all the other injuries the fact still remains that the nerve pain hurts more than the other physical pains. I am a heart patient with a very bad heart and when you are living in a lot of pain everyday the pain causes a lot of unnecessary strain on the heart but the Federal Government does not give a damn. This is the kind of issues that makes the Federal Government the enemy of millions of injured vets. The Feds know that pot is an excellent God-given herb for pain and relaxation but what does facts have to do with Government policies?

 

Now I will quit my rambling and get back to the point of the title of this post, the senseless murders of those eight family members in the state of Ohio. These people had a pot growing operation going on at three of those four locations and it is believed that is why they were all murdered. Which ever reason the shooters had for what they did whether they were rivals who didn’t want the competition or they just wanted to steal their product, if pot were legal and treated like beer or wine for tax purposes, these eight people would still be alive today. So, I guess it is fair to say that the Federal Government is co-murderers of these and thousands of other people every year. If pot were legal in Ohio (Governor John Kasich) where people could grow their own for their own use, none of this would have happened. So, is Governor Kasich guilty of murder? Is President Obama guilty of these murders also? There is a strong case to say yes on both of these issues. Pot does not cure nerve pain or any other type of pain but neither does any of the narcotics, they only block pain receptors from getting to the brain. Pot, just like other God-given medications do not kill people, but the pain pills kill people everyday. Yet it is the government that pushes narcotics that are man-made upon people causing addictions and thousands of over doses every year. Also, when bad folks find out that you as a disabled veteran that is getting pain meds through the mail every month that makes these same veterans a target for being robbed and or murdered. These eight people in Ohio are just like thousands of other people nation wide and world-wide, they would be alive today if it were not for the hypocrisy of the American politicians.

 

 

Is Islam The Devils Personal Poison Flower?

 

In the Middle-East there is a pretty flower that grows there, it is considered to be ‘the Devils flower’, this flower is called a Mandrake. Mandrake produces beautiful purple flowers but it is the root of the herb that produces a narcotic effect like unto marijuana. In Old Testament Scripture (Genesis 30:14-16) you can see that this plant was considered a good thing by the wives of Israel’s patriarch Jacob (Israel) as it was also considered a fertility aid in humans. Within the above mentioned Scripture it is a major role player in the birth of Jacobs fifth son Issachar. Remember that it is Jacob’s twelve sons that the twelve tribes of Israel are named after. For these type of reasons it is easy to see why the religion of Islam forbids the use of this plant/herb/flower. Records of this herb were also mentioned by the Roman historian Pliny, it is not just something that you find record of only within Scripture. The reason that I put this information first in my post today is so that you would know from where the idea for this title came from, after all, in the Islamic world this herb is referred to as “the Devils flower”.

 

By no means am I a person who is anti-Muslim people or anti-Persian people. All people are just people, equals, it is what is adsorbed between the ears that makes the person, not your birth place. I am a person who is anti-Islam because of its teaching of violence and mass murder. There are many good qualities within this religion but unfortunately much pure evil is integrated and saturated within its teachings. Islam as most folks know has the definition  of ‘submission’, total submission to Allah. Many Christian folks here in America as well as many people whom have no religious feelings or knowledge think that the word Allah is just another word for God, interchangeable with the Christian and Jewish version of God, that belief is 100% wrong folks. People of Islam know this fact, they do not consider us all to be worshiping/serving the same God, and they are correct about that.

 

The teachings of the Christian Bible, the Jewish Torah, and the Qu’ran can not be considered to be teaching the same things because they very much do not. Just as Jesus said He does not hate the person, the sinner, he only hates the sin for all humans sin regularly. The Qu’ran’s teachings are pushed down the throats of the people who are living in what the west refers to as the Muslim/Persian world. It is truly a world that is different from countries that are dominated with any other religion on Earth. Just as the Hindu and Buddhists religions teach totally different concepts of God than the teachings of Jesus their teachings also do not mirror the teachings of Islam either. I am going to ask each one of you this one question please. What ever religious affiliation that you yourself have, or no affiliation at all, if the structure you are being taught teaches that you have the obligation to hurt or kill other people, why is it that you think you are serving a ‘God’? Folks, if God wants a person or people dead He doesn’t need you or me to do the killing He is plenty capable to do it Himself. Please consider the concept that anyone who is worshiping in a religion that is telling ‘His’ people to kill and steal from those you kill (as spoils of war) that this Deity is not really ‘a God’, he is the Devil, not a God.

 

The Christian God of Scripture is a God of love and the teachings of the Bible tells us that if we are not worshiping God the Father through His Son Jesus the Messiah that we are simply worshiping idols (wood or stone), or we are worshiping nothing at all. (Deuteronomy 4:28) (Deuteronomy 28:64) (1 Corinthians 10:20-21). At the core of a religion that teaches that other people aren’t really a people, that it is your obligation to wipe the land clean of these infidels (non-believers) then you are going to be counted among the chafe at the second advent of Christ (the Messiah, the promised one). If you are a believer in a religion that teaches that basically all other people outside your geographic region are ‘not a people’, that they are less than you then it is you who are putting yourself and your household in danger of Hell’s fire after your death. If your religion teaches you that you are not to even eat at the same table as others not of your religion this is a sign that you are serving a ‘God’ that is not God.

 

We can all easily see that in the Islamic world that it is a religion of ‘no tolerance’. This is shown all over the Middle-East by the hatreds that exist within this religion. Simply look at the murdering of the Shiite against the Sunni and vice versa. Then of course the overt war of Islam against especially the Jewish believers and the Christian believers is no secret. Islam is a religion of pure hatred against everything and everyone on the planet. Look at the things that are okay within this religion, mass murder, rape, pedophilia, and slavery, baby brides. This list goes on and on, the pure evil that is ordained by the Qu’ran toward other religions. Folks it is my total belief that Islam is the Devils flower, His main venue of raw hate. Just pay some attention to the fundamentalists views on how they have butchered even their own people (old folks, men and women and children) if they dare not be perfect according to their ‘priests’. These horrible events are not ‘radical Islam’, every religion has core values and beliefs and these horrible things are the basics of Islamic Law. There is no putting and end to the terrorism that Islamic believers commit around the world until the people whom believe in Allah put and end to it themselves and folks, that just isn’t ever going to happen. Why is this? I will tell you why, it is because the ‘docile’ the ‘non-violent’ among the Islamic believers know very well that these teachings are at the very core of what Islam is all about. This is why Islam is a poison flower to all people on Earth, even to those whom believe in it and practice it.

Poem About Mandrake: Islam Says It Is The Devil’s Flower: Here Is Why

 

 

Mandrake, are you the Devil’s flower

In Islam you are so-called you see

The reason is plain and simple

But most of the world is blind to thee

How could you a God-given herb

In any way be a controversy

 

Go back in time about four thousand years

Back before the first seed of Islam ever appeared

You’re beautiful seed like all green herbs

A gift given from God to man

Given for enjoyment and relaxation

But some how now to partake of you is called a sin

 

Back a long time ago before God’s Prophets were on the land

Abraham the father of many, this is where the story began

His sons Ishmael then Isaac who begat Jacob, called Israel

Mandrake the history that of Israel began one night with thee

 

Isaac was married to two sisters, back then it was okay to be

He rotated from tent to tent each night in his attempt to please

Rebecca was his favorite wife but this night was not her turn to be

For this night was her sister Leigh’s turn with Isaac to be with her

Rebecca the smart one had lots of Mandrake but Leigh had none of thee

This night Rebecca wanted Isaac and Leigh wanted a buzz from thee

 

Mandrake flower, Leigh pleased, this night Isaac impregnated Rebecca

Not with just any child, but with one who changed all of world history

Boy child born whom his parents called Jacob, twelve boys in his loins to be

The Lord God would soon change his name to Israel, meaning God strives

The twelve sons the twelve names of the twelve tribes of God’s nation, Israel

Now do you see why Islam calls Mandrake the Devil’s seed?
