Over 50000 People Signed up for the Marijuana Mil

first_imgOver 50,000 People Signed up for the Marijuana Millionaire Summit… Recommended Link Justin: I agree. Let’s start with money launderer. Doug: Money laundering. It’s the process of making money obtained from criminal activity look like it came from a legitimate source. But it’s a completely artificial crime. It’s made up. It was created out of whole cloth about 40 years ago, as I recall. Like most “crimes” today, it’s not wrong in itself; it’s wrong because some legislators passed a law. There’s nothing wrong, in principle, with money laundering. Perhaps you got the money illegally or immorally. And, incidentally, those are two totally different concepts, where there’s only an accidental overlap. But that’s a big subject for a whole new conversation. But what’s wrong with redeploying capital that already exists in a perfectly legal or moral way? I would say nothing. Money is fungible. It’s not like artwork—it’s not so easy to trace its provenance. Anyway, it’s said that most great fortunes started with a crime. That’s certainly true for the Kennedy fortune. Joe Kennedy, founder of the clan, made most of his money bootlegging, which is the equivalent of drug dealing. He also made money with stock manipulation, which is insider trading. God knows what else he was up to. Although bootlegging and stock manipulation are not, in themselves, immoral. That said, I have no doubt many other things—like murder, assault, theft—occurred in the process. So, he laundered money. It wasn’t a crime then. It’s counterproductive to make it illegal to take these so-called ill-gotten gains, and do something correct with them. It’s just another Kafka-esque crime that they can arbitrarily use to hang you. At what point does capital created illegally become clean? Money laundering is a non-crime, and shouldn’t be treated as a crime. Justin: What about drug dealers? Doug: Today, drug dealers are automatically seen as the worst kind of scum. Drug dealers now are always looked upon as being violent, evil, immoral, amoral, just horrible human beings. But the problem isn’t so much that drugs can be abused and harm the user—that’s true of alcohol, tobacco, food, sex, inactivity, and a hundred other things. The problem arises when they’re made illegal. All drugs should be legal. Why? Well, your body is your primary possession. If you can’t control what you can put in your own body, you have no freedom at all. You’re, in effect, a slave. That’s the moral argument for drugs being legal. Whether they’re good, bad, or indifferent is a technical issue. But it’s a question of degree, as is the case with food, sex, alcohol, tobacco, sugar, and everything else. These can all be addictive or even dangerous if they’re not used in moderation. The “War on Drugs” is foolish and destructive on every level. It should be abolished. Justin: You explored this idea in your latest novel, Drug Lord. Doug: Yes. In that novel, my co-author John Hunt and I tried to reform the unjustly besmirched occupation of drug lord. Our drug lord hero, Charles Knight, is a thoroughly good guy. There’s nothing wrong with the commodity. There’s nothing wrong with purveying drugs. But, as with the other subjects we’re discussing, people often have a fixed idea burned into their consciousness, and they’re unwilling or unable to analyze the subject rationally. Drug dealing, whether you’re a ghetto dweller or Big Pharma, is—in itself—a non-crime. Justin: But Doug, drug dealers murder, kidnap people, and do all sorts of horrible things. How can you say they’re not criminals? Doug: That’s true. But it’s not because they’re drug dealers. It’s because they’re murderers, kidnappers, or extortionists. Those are the real crimes. But you’ve got to separate these ideas. Something may look gray. But gray is a combination of black and white. It shows a lack of critical thinking when people can’t separate them. Justin’s note: Tomorrow, I’ll share part two of this interview, where Doug shares his thoughts on two other controversial buzzwords. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, I encourage you to pick up a copy of Doug’s novel Drug Lord. It’s a fantastic tale where hero Charles Knight has to sort through the legal and illegal, moral and immoral, and right and wrong as he navigates the War on Drugs and the corrupt pharmaceutical industry.

Where did you learn to write like this? You give the facts in a very appealing yet appalling manner! Hats off to you!—Lois Your reasoning is incorrect. The US Constitution governs his actions, and it is clearly worded otherwise against Sessions. Read the history of the 10th Amendment (and there is plenty from before that amendment was ratified in in September 1787). Generally, the 10th Amendment gives states the rights to overrule and supersede government foolery (Sessions included). Past SCOTUS cases will confirm the above information. The above are viable facts, and anecdotal bloviating.—CraigWhat do you think about Sessions’ fight against the marijuana industry? Let us know right here.

I bought a $5,400 stake in October 2016. This morning it was $74,200!!!! As a follow-up, within a few more weeks my stake had climbed to over $151,000… $5,400 to $151,000 in 8 months!!!!!! Here’s how to get Teeka’s research right away… Justin’s note: Doug Casey isn’t afraid to speak his mind… even if it means offending people. That’s a rare commodity. These days, most people only think what they’re supposed to think. They say only what’s politically correct. It’s a serious problem that’s getting worse every day. So, I recently called Doug to discuss some of today’s most controversial buzzwords… Justin: Doug, you said something during one of our recent talks that intrigued me: They’ll say if you use bitcoin you’re a money launderer, a drug dealer, a terrorist, or a tax evader. Actually, the morality involved in all those activities is worth a separate discussion… it’s perverse they’re always classed together. What did you mean by that? What’s wrong with grouping these people together? Doug: It’s chimpanzee think. It’s group-think memes in action. Somebody in a position of authority—or even just an actor, or a news reader, or a rapper, for that matter—says something. That transforms it into something that everybody automatically believes in, thoughtlessly. It’s like the concept of political correctness. I first heard that term on Saturday Night Live in the early 1980s. They said “this isn’t very politically correct.” I thought it was part of their skit. I thought it was a joke. — Little did I know that it would become a meme. The concept didn’t just catch on in society, it’s come to rule it. You’re supposed to be politically correct—if not, you must be a Nazi or a Klansman. Although, oddly, you might actually be a Communist or a fanatic Muslim with identical beliefs—and that’s somehow acceptable. So, the concept of PC isn’t a joke anymore. It’s the complete opposite of a joke. It’s a threat. Calling something a name that’s not just inaccurate, but maybe the opposite of what it is, is dangerous, dishonest and destructive. A lot of words are consistently misused today. Sometimes purposefully, sometimes just stupidly. What you say reflects what you think. And what you think—or at least feel—influences what you do. I did an article a while ago debunking the misuse of a dozen common words. People who think in slogans and catchphrases are very dangerous. They turn their feelings into group moral memes. Lowest common denominator stuff. Justin: They aren’t thinking for themselves. Doug: Exactly. That’s how lynch mobs work—“Give us Barabbas! Give us Barabbas!” People should analyze these “hot button” concepts, like the four things I mentioned—and there are lots of others—on their own merits. Otherwise you’ll wind up mindlessly parroting Paul Krugman, Hillary Clinton, or Kim Kardashian. These terms shouldn’t be grouped together. “These are evil things. We shouldn’t even think about them. They’re not even worth talking about.” Did Big Brother call them Badthink in 1984? Justin: But you think they’re worth talking about? Doug: Absolutely. This is what made Walter Block’s book Defending the Undefendable such a work of genius. Everyone should read it. It’s also very funny, somewhat in the tradition of George Carlin, another genius. So, yes. We should dissect all four terms that I mentioned.last_img read more

As the 2016 presidential campaign wound down then

first_imgAs the 2016 presidential campaign wound down, then-candidate Donald Trump made clear that if elected, he would work to see an end to the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision on his watch.”If we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that’s really what’s going to be, that’s what will happen,” Trump said at the final presidential debate in October 2016. “And that will happen automatically in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court.”The 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide won’t be overturned automatically, nor without a fight. But advocates on both sides of the issue agree the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy sets the stage for a battle over abortion rights unlike any in a generation.High stakes for reproductive rightsKennedy’s departure will usher in a fight for the future of the Supreme Court that many social and religious conservatives anticipated and hoped for during the 2016 campaign. Trump’s promise to appoint conservative, anti-abortion justices helped turn out the base voters he needed to secure his surprise victory. Exit polls suggested the makeup of the Supreme Court played a major role for many voters on both sides, but more for Republicans.Almost as soon as Kennedy’s retirement was announced, several anti-abortion rights groups seized on the moment.”We’re the closest we’ve ever been to overturning Roe v. Wade,” a woman says in a video released online by the group Students for Life of America shortly after the news broke.In an interview with NPR, Students for Life President Kristan Hawkins called the retirement of the court’s swing vote “a day that we’ve been waiting for.””Our goal in the pro-life movement has always been to make abortion illegal and unthinkable,” Hawkins said. “So we want Roe to be overturned … and we expect that.”Hawkins noted that Kennedy has voted to uphold abortion rights in several cases, including the landmark 1992 ruling Planned Parenthood v. Casey, and more recently, in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, which overturned a Texas law that placed additional health regulations on clinics that perform abortions.Meanwhile, abortion-rights supporters, like Nancy Northup of the Center for Reproductive Rights, called Kennedy’s retirement devastating news.”He has been a crucial vote in landmark reproductive rights cases,” Northup said.”[I’m] extremely concerned,” said Helene Krasnoff, vice president of public policy, litigation and law at Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “President Trump has been making good on his threat to stack the courts with those who are opposed to safe, legal abortion, and we can only expect that he’ll nominate another extreme opponent.”A fight for Kennedy’s replacementBoth sides are gearing up for a confirmation battle in the Senate after Trump names his nominee. Republicans have a narrow, 51-seat majority, and all eyes will be on a handful of Republicans who have been supportive of abortion rights, and on red-state Democrats facing re-election in November. Senators in each group will be under pressure to come over to the other side of the aisle.”It’s gonna be epic,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List, which works to elect candidates who oppose abortion rights. “It will be cast as a pretty pivotal vote on the court on this issue and many, many others … We’ve been preparing for this fight for a very long time.”Hawkins said her group has more than 1,200 chapters around the country, and organizers will encourage members to lobby their senators during the confirmation process.Krasnoff, of Planned Parenthood, said abortion-rights advocates also will be lobbying senators to vote against any nominee seen as likely to overturn Roe.”President Trump and Mitch McConnell hold the balance of the court in their hands right now. And with it, they hold the right to safe and legal abortion,” Krasnoff said. “So we’re going to be getting that message out and making sure that the Senate rejects any nominee that opposes Roe v. Wade and the right to safe, legal abortion.”Speaking outside the Supreme Court on Thursday, Ilyse Hogue of NARAL Pro-Choice America urged abortion-rights supporters to reach out to lawmakers.”This is about all 100 senators hearing from people on a daily basis that they do not want people, women, families, criminalized,” Hogue said.While polling on abortion is difficult and yields mixed results depending on how the questions are asked, multiple polls suggest a majority of Americans believe abortion should be legal in at least some cases, particularly in early pregnancy.A battle for the courts — and in the courts If Trump is successful in pushing through a nominee who’s likely to overturn or erode Roe, the fight over the future of the decision could play out in several ways.Northup, of the Center for Reproductive Rights, said restrictive laws recently passed by several states could work their way to the Supreme Court. She points to what’s known as a “heartbeat bill” in Iowa, where state lawmakers recently approved one of the strictest abortion laws in the nation.The law, which is being challenged in the courts, bans the procedure after a heartbeat can be detected, which is often before a woman knows she is pregnant. Other states, including Mississippi and Louisiana, have banned abortion at 15 weeks’ gestation, and others have prohibited specific methods.”I think it’s going to be the early cutoff dates for abortion that you’re gonna be seeing going up to the court that could challenge Roe v. Wade, because Roe v. Wade and its cases that have followed have made clear that before the time of fetal viability it’s for the woman and her doctor to make the decision,” Northup said. “And these states have been passing laws trying to radically change that.”Back to the statesAt the final presidential debate in Las Vegas, Trump promised that if Roe is overturned, “It will go back to the states and the states will then make a determination.”That’s true, and it’s the goal of many abortion-rights opponents, some of whom downplay the idea that abortion could become illegal nationwide.”Without question, our goal is to overturn Roe v. Wade so that states are allowed to enact their own wills into law,” said Dannenfelser, of the Susan B. Anthony List.But states have a patchwork of laws, with red states tending to pass more restrictive abortion ones.Alexis Cole, an attorney and policy director at Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, said 17 states already have laws on the books that would heavily restrict or ban abortion if Roe were overturned. She notes that because of restrictive laws and limited access to abortion, women in many states already struggle to obtain the procedure, even under Roe.”It would no longer be a matter of traveling across your state; it would be a matter of traveling multiple states that would actually allow you to get an abortion,” Cole said.

Stem cell stimulation shows promise as potential stroke treatment

first_imgRelated StoriesBrain stimulation accelerates visual learning and recoveryHealthy blood vessels could help stave off cognitive declineDysfunctional neurons repaired in dementia mouse modelLing Wei, Shang Ping Yu, and colleagues at Emory University injected neural stem cells into the brains of mice after a stroke and activated the cells through nasal administration of a protein. The stem cells activated by this new, noninvasive technique called optochemogenetics grew healthier and formed more connections compared to the stem cells that did not receive stimulation. Additionally, the mice that received both stem cells and stimulation displayed the most recovery, with some behaviors returning to pre-stroke levels.The combination of stem cell injection and stimulation increased the likelihood of a successful stroke recovery in mice. Instead of just injecting stem cells in the damaged area of the brain, following up with stimulation creates an ideal environment for the cells to develop and form connections with surrounding neurons.

The Marshall Islands Are 10 Times More Radioactive Than Chernobyl

Credit: Shutterstock 10 Times HBO’s ‘Chernobyl’ Got the Science Wrong In Photos: World’s 10 Most Polluted Places In Photos: Fukushima Butterflies Plagued With Defects Some of the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean — such as the Bikini and Enewetak atolls — are still more radioactive than Chernobyl and Fukushima, even though more than 60 years have passed since the United States tested radioactive weapons on those islands, a new study finds. When testing the soil for plutonium-239 and -240, the researchers found that some of the islands had levels that were between 10 and 1,000 times higher than those on Fukushima (where an earthquake and tsunami led to the meltdown of nuclear reactors) and about 10 times higher than levels in the Chernobyl exclusion zone. The researchers took only a limited number of soil samples, meaning a more comprehensive survey is needed, they said. Regardless, they were surprised that neither national governments nor international organizations had “any further guidance on permissible plutonium levels in the soil,” even though levels in the Marshall Islands were high, the researchers wrote in the study.

Some of these tests happened in the Marshall Islands, a chain of islands between Hawaii and the Philippines that was then a district of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands and was run by the U.S. on behalf of the United Nations. The first two bombs, called Able and Baker, were tested on Bikini Atoll in 1946 and kicked off a 12-year period of nuclear testing on the Bikini and Enewetak atolls, during which the U.S. tested 67 nuclear weapons. The first-ever hydrogen bomb test, with the code name Ivy Mike, was tested on Enewetak in 1951. The U.S. conducted its largest hydrogen bomb test on Bikini Atoll — the 1954 Castle Bravo bomb, which was more than 1,000 times more powerful than Little Boy, the uranium weapon that decimated Hiroshima. In addition to contaminating the Bikini and Enewetak atolls, nuclear fallout from the tests also rained down on and sickened people living on Rongelap and Utirik atolls (also part of the Marshall Islands), the researchers said. In 2016, a team of researchers from Columbia University in New York published a study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) on the background gamma radiation in three of the northern Marshall atolls: Enewetak, Bikini and Rongelap. The researchers found that radiation levels on Bikini were higher than previously reported, so they decided to do more in-depth studies on radioactivity in the islands. (Nuclear weapons are one source that releases gamma-rays, which are like energetic X-rays.) More fallout Now, that same team has written three new studies, published online yesterday (July 15) in the journal PNAS, on four of the atolls in the northern Marshall islands: Bikini, Enewetak, Rongelap and Utirik. External gamma radiation levels were significantly elevated on Bikini Atoll, on Enjebi Island in Enewetak Atoll and on Naen Island in Rongelap Atoll, compared with an island in the southern Marshall Islands that the scientists used as a control, the researchers found. The levels on Bikini and Naen islands were so high, they surpassed the maximum exposure limit that the United States and the Republic of the Marshall Islands agreed to in the 1990s, the researchers said. (On a side note, bikini swimsuits weren’t named after the island because of its tropicality, but because the French designer wanted the two-piece swimsuit to be “explosive,” just like the bomb tested there, said one of the study’s senior scientists, Ivana Nikolic-Hughes, director of the K1 Project at the Center for Nuclear Studies and a senior lecturer of chemistry at Columbia University.) [Flying Saucers to Mind Control: 22 Declassified Military & CIA Secrets] The researchers also found that the islands of Runit and Enjebi in Enewetak Atoll, as well as on Bikini and Naen islands, had high concentrations of certain radioactive isotopes in the soil. (An isotope is an element with a different number of neutrons in its nucleus.) These four islands had radioactive plutonium levels that were higher than those found in Fukushima and Chernobyl, the researchers found. “What was surprising was just how high the external gamma radiation was for Naen, which is the outer island for Rongelap Atoll,” Nikolic-Hughes told Live Science. “It was populated during the Bravo test … [the people there] were then moved, moved back and moved again. It’s quite a dreadful history of what happened to Rongelapese people.” In their second study, the researchers worked with professional divers, who collected 130 soil samples from the Castle Bravo Crater at Bikini Atoll. The level of some of the isotopes — plutonium-239 and -240, americium-241 and bismuth-207 — was an order of magnitude higher than levels found on other Marshall Islands, the researchers found. These findings are important because “measuring the radioactive contamination of the crater sediment is a first step in assessing the overall impact of nuclear weapons testing on the ocean ecosystems,” the researchers wrote in the study. In the third study, the researchers tested more than 200 fruits — mostly coconuts and pandanus — on 11 of the islands from four different atolls in the northern Marshall Islands. Cesium-137 levels didn’t look good for a sizeable chunk of the fruits on Bikini and Rongelap atolls, which had radioactivity levels higher than those deemed safe by several countries and international organizations, the researchers found. More work is needed to educate people living on the Marshall Islands about these dangers. Moreover, these findings and future research can shed light on whether it’s safe for the Marshallese people to resettle or harvest food on some of these islands, the researchers said.last_img read more
