Piss on Your Grave a Million Times Mr. Bigshot!"
fellow Americans! Do you understand that this blink of a conservative shithole
(State College,PA) is important to the demonization of cannabis hemp
and sativa? "Why," you ask, " would this drunk pit pigskin corporate
hickory town be of any importance in the fight for marijuana?"
tell you why.
Way back in the early 1920's, Harry J. Anslinger graduated from the very
same high school from which I graduated, Hollidaysburg, PA. Hollidaysburg
is approximately one hour from State College and Pennsylvania State University
is the college young buck Ansliger wished to attend, being so near to his
family and well, who knows if he had any friends... After graduating from
PSU, Anslinger eventually became the Commisioner of Narcotics for the United
He drew up documents he called the "Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 to present
to legislative officials which declared that, "..a sex mad degenerate,
named Lee Fernendez, brutally attacked a young girl...Police officers knew
he was under the influence of marijuana (these were the days before
urine tests,mind you). He submitted several of these "first hand
accounts" of heinous marijuana smoking criminals containing slurs of Asians,
African-Americans, and Latinos. In another excerpt, Anslinger submits a
letter from an upper class Sir named Floyd
K. Baskette (basketcase, maybe) that stated, " I wish I could show you
what a small marijuana cigarette can do to one of our degenerate Spanish-speaking
residents. The greatest percentage of which are low, mentally."
In another preposterous statement, marijuana was blamed for the subsequent
mental dehabilitation of a young man who, "is now confined to a mental
institutional for the mentally diseased. His experience is entirely the
result of acquiring the habit of smoking marijuana cigarettes."
have been killer weed fer sure!
is Mr. An "ass" slinger largely responsible for marijuana prohibition,
he is also to blame for the fact that Dupont and Co. (you know the plastics
and hazardous waste chemical company) can still continue making big bucks
while polluting our environment. Du Pont was very nice to Anslinger because
not only were the families oddly related through marriage, but also through
big buck payoffs.
got the guns, but we've got THE NUMBERS!!!"
tuned to HoneyBud while she rips into more dope ass
in your face, so , why dontcha?"
Right under all our noses this research has been all along because PSU
has the "Anslinger Files" which were left to us but the jerk himself when
he keeled over. But don't bother rushing to the library because parts of
the archive are occasionally missing. That only happens when something
HUGE is going to happen in this town. So get ready America, it's
coming this way!!!!!

Toke Two & Call me
in the Morning:
Prof. Emeritus Julian
Heicklen Smokes Out University Entrance
there has been a lot of talk about Dr. Heicklen's act of bravery to smoke
joints every week at the Pennsylvania State University Gates. Yet,
there hasn't been a concise story or behind-the-scenes look at what, according
to the Daily Collegian "appeared to be marijuana," and Julian's battle
for freedom and redemption January 29 at HIGH noon. The police said they
were testing the joint (after they confiscated it) and reported that the
joint contained no THC. However, the toy soldiers took Dr.
Heicklen's joint without so much as a warrant or a kind word. They ressed
his hand down and twisted it out of his fingers, then left in a hushed
and hurried panic.
A phatter joint then appeared out of the sea of supporters and graced the
lips of a freezing Prof. Emeritus sitting in a lawn chair and wrapped in
a blue blanket. He proceeded to smoke the joint in its sweet smelling entirety,
with several undaunted students passing along to warm their spirits on
this historical day. As a writer who believes in the good Dr.s cause,
I had myself some very intense hits of this "joint" and proclaimed that
this was definitely the REAL STUFF! As we toked peaceably, Julian recommmended
that we not only write to the District Attorney of centre County but to
the President and all the offices in between about personal views concerning
the day's events and the subsequent robbery of his property by University
Police Services. Dr. Heicklen's second joint was lit and relit by several
more willing volunteers. He's already requested in an email to PSU president
Graham Spanier that the spliff-swiper be fired for misconduct. He then
asked both the District and Assistant District Attorney to prosecute in
Fighter for individual freedom isn't all that new to Julian Heicklen.
In fact, his record of public interest and interaction is quite extensive.
He organized sit-ins when he lived in San Francisco during the 1960's.
He was once arrested personally by the City Manager in Torrence, Ca (pop.
100,000). He and supporters of civil liberties flooded the court system
and the charges were dropped because the city could not uphold the right
to a speedy trail (which in California is 30 days). The system had fallen
under the pressure of civil disobedience.
In the 1970's, Dr. heicklen was the Vice-President and Secretary of the
Centre County American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), a member of the National
Committee of Concerned Scientists, and the PSU faculty advisor of Amnesty
International. He then became interested in the condition of prison systems
and founded two organizations, Pennsylvania Prison Society and Smart On
Crime-a citizen's lobbying group. In July 1997, he also founded the
Centre County Libertarian Party PSU Chapter. His scientific career
is just as impressive: He has been recognized by the New YorkAcademy for
Advances in Technology and Creative Advances in Environmental Science.
When SPITE asked Julian about what exactly he came to accomplish at the
Marijuana Smokeout, he replied," By them not arresting me, I am already
immune. Now to get all of you immune [from prosecution]."
for another drag of doobie)
"I am an advocate for FREEDOM!!"
"I'll be back every Thursday if that is
what I have to do! What else do we do on Thursdays?!?"
And the crowd went wild! While Julian smoked some more of his joint before
passing it for a second round to willing students, someone in the crowd
asked him if we was high and he airily replied, " Oh, I am just flying."
For an hour, Dr. Heicklen answered endless questions from the press, supporters
and generally curious parties. Some of the news stations srambled
in a for a good shot, while others clammored in closer to hear his words
of wisdom. He commented on his beliefs that marijuana can be a very
useful medicine for people with glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, and asthma,
but he cannot be sure until the government releases its stranglehold of
marijuana laws and research prohibitions.
THERE MUST BE CHANGE.
