usa-election-clintonAnother disclosure by WikLeaks revealed that Hillary Clinton’s opinion on legalizing Cannabis. It was revealed that she is firmly against it.

Imagine this… another ATTORNEY that supports the position of the DEA… along with the 43% of Congress that are attorneys… as is Obama and AG Loretta Lynch.  In the last Presidential election there was 126 million votes cast and FIVE MILLION separated the winner from the loser and there was 106 million eligible voters – THAT DID NOT VOTE..  One can presume that Clinton will also support the rescheduling of Kratom to C-I and we know that she endorses the proposed prescription opiate tax by Senator Manchin of WV… to help fund the treatment of those suffering from addictive personality disorder. Of course, a lot of those people… do not want treatment… do not want to be sober.  Just like the 45 million Nicotine addicts and 35 million alcoholics.  Remember even though the number of legal opiate prescriptions PEAKED in 2012… the bureaucracy is still trying to connect the legal prescribing of opiates with the increasing number of OD’s from illegal drugs being imported from south of our border and China.  They refuse to acknowledge the facts… because it does not support THEIR LARGER AGENDA.  Just like they prohibit research on MJ, Kratom, long term opiate use… so any anecdotal information does not meet their criteria of double blind clinical studies and those clinical studies cannot be done… so benefit to the pts doesn’t exist.  The LACK of a positive is PROOF of a negative ??

WikiLeaks has been the most important thing that has happened to an election in a long time. We’ve been able to catch glimpses of the real nature of politicians and bureaucrats like never before, and see the state of democracy for what it is: a once mighty oak ravaged by white ants.

In Hillary Clinton, we see a figure beholden to Wall St., working diligently to advance the influence of financial corporations over government policy and taxpayer money. Her mega-donor list is a who’s who of megabanks that also happened to benefit from the TARP government bailout.

And in telling the Goldman Sachs banksters to chill out, cannabis won’t be legalized, she was providing music to the ears of the financial fat cats. Big Pharma, so desperate to suppress the truth about the medicinal value of cannabis in order to protect their profits, is a major part of Wall St.

In return for their money, Clinton gave speeches to Wall St. giants behind closed doors between 2013 and 2015. She told Goldman Sachs she was “far removed” from ordinary people and that “you need both a public and a private position.”

Clinton has vacillated terribly on the issue of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which is a gift to her donors but very unpopular to Americans who see it for the fleecing it is. She was for TPP before she was against it – a familiar descriptive.

As Bernie Sanders pointed out during the primary – where he was efficiently neutralized by the establishment – the only thing we know about Clinton is that she will be on the side of Wall St.
If Clinton supporters believe she will do anything about government’s war on cannabis, they should think again.

The good people at Marijuana.com have been studying the leaked emails, and during one of those Wall St. speeches, Clinton expressed a clear opposition to cannabis legalization.

“During an on-stage Q & A session with Xerox’s chairman and CEO in March 2014, Clinton used Wall Street terminology to express her opposition to ending cannabis prohibition “in all senses of the word”:

URSULA BURNS: So long means thumbs up, short means thumbs down; or long means I support, short means I don’t. I’m going to start with — I’m going to give you about ten long-shorts.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Even if you could make money on a short, you can’t answer short.

URSULA BURNS: You can answer short, but you got to be careful about letting anybody else know that. They will bet against you. So legalization of pot?

SECRETARY CLINTON: Short in all senses of the word.”

The exchange with Burns is part of an 80-page document containing the emails of John Podesta, her campaign manager. Campaign staffers have been working diligently to try and scrub embarrassing parts of the speeches, and this was one of them.

As Tom Angell points out:

“That the campaign flagged the candidate’s opposition to legalization as a potential problem demonstrates a growing understanding by political operatives that marijuana law reform is now a mainstream issue, one which is supported by a majority of Americans and a supermajority of Democratic primary voters.”

As with so many other issues, it’s hard to tell from Clinton’s public statements exactly where she stands – unlike Sanders, who openly supports legalization and even introduced a bill to end federal prohibition.

Since that exchange with Burns in 2014, Clinton has acknowledged the medical value of cannabis and indicated she would let states do their own thing, and even said cannabis should be rescheduled under the Controlled Substances Act.

However, she adopts a ‘cover your ass’ approach by saying “I don’t think we’ve done enough research yet” and “I want to wait and see” what happens in states with recreational legalization.

This is not in line with the truth becoming exponentially obvious – that denying medical cannabis to suffering patients is a criminal act, and prohibiting a plant that people have used for thousands of years is oppression.

Clinton had no problem making it clear to a Wall St. corporation that she is against legalization, but why?

Perhaps because the pharmaceutical industry is a major part of Wall St., and they are desperately fighting ballot initiatives to legalize cannabis in several states, as it represents a direct threat to their profits.

  1. Give me a break. When wikileaks starts leaking emails they hacked from the RNC, I will treat the DNC ones as newsworthy. Not now. Not when US intelligence says the hacks came from Russia, and that both candidates were briefed that they came from Russia, and they were briefed before each of the 2 debates in which the Republican candidate claimed NO ONE knows who’s doing it and that Clinton is lying that it’s Russia.
    The RNC is behaving disgracefully right in front of the world, just imagine what could be in their e-mails. But I’m supposed to stop supporting Clinton for things that might be going much, much worse on the other side of the aisle? This is ludicrous.

  2. Although I still can’t figure out what a white ant is,the idea expressed is,in my opinion,right on the mark.Our “once great” democracy,does not seem to be that mighty oak tree anymore.Little by little it has been devoured by the ants.When a “majority” of we the people have made it clear that we want the laws against cannabis changed,and continue to be ignored,something is not functioning properly in our democracy.
    Hillarys tired,old,phony excuse,that she doesn’t think there’s been enough research yet,is so disingenuous that it’s laughable.Any one that really cares about the truth of the matter,and isn’t motivated by a hidden agenda,can in this age of the Internet,Google the subject,and in minutes find enough well documented credible research to make ones head spin.
    That foolish excuse,and the outdated schedule 1 nonsense,truly need to be challenged.Neither of those hold up under close scrutiny,and Hillary knows that! Except for they living under a prohibitionists rock,they “all”know that,as well as president Obama,who has already stated as much.
    The article is again right on when it states,”denying medical cannabis to suffering patients is a criminal act,and prohibiting a plant used for thousands of years is oppression.” In a supposed “democracy” yes it is oppression.Not only the medical aspect,but also as a recreational substance,the laws regulating a natural plant are senseless and wrong.We the people,have spoken loud and clear,in state after state,for years now,and the powers that behave heard,they simply choose to not listen!
    Through the years many innocent people,have been made out to be criminals,for a crime that should not,and should have never been, considered a crime.
