Hemp Activists and “Truthers” Unite

HempVia the Bob Tuskin Radio Show:

After 11 years, the Florida Hemp Fest is back with a new twist.

Dennis “Murli” Watkins, who served four months of jail time for orchestrating a “doobie toss” at the event in 1994, is bringing back what used to be an annual celebration of marijuana and a protest for its legalization.Gainesville Sun

Murli just so happens to be a supporter of the “truth.” When we were contacted by him to set up a table and to give a talk on various topics such as the Federal Reserve, fluoride, and 9/11 we gladly accepted.

Watkins said this year’s edition will touch on other, even more controversial issues than legalizing pot. “Hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years. Here it is almost 2012, and we’re still fighting this same stupid battle,” he said. “9/11 was an inside job and they’re worried about someone smoking a doobie. They’ve got to get their priorities in order.” Watkins said there will be a “9/11 truth booth” set up at the event, which will be held on the city’s Bo Diddley Community Plaza downtown.Gainesville Sun

Lets be blunt, no pun intended, The hemp/cannabis movement has always gone hand in hand with the type of information we cover on a daily basis.

While you obviously do not have to get high to “wake up,” I think that it is pretty well documented that the powers that shouldn’t be do not like marijuana for many different reasons, namely the fact that it may inspire thinking outside the box.

    its gonna come to a big showdown very soon with the Feds and the States. Will win? Not sure. But I hope the people revolt. Its the Pharmaceutical ind, Timber, Oil, textile, and on and on that stand to lose. And their lobbyist are the ones who funnel the money to keep ALL these clowns in office. What a shame. We do NOT live in a real democracy.

    Couldnt agree more Fruitygasoline. Its actually such an obviously bad choice i gotta wonder if the dude actually went to jail and isnt just a narc who got sent to Bermuda for 4 months for giving pot a bad name. 

    Not only does it conflate the two issues, and distorts the legitimacy of one with the widely scorned conspiracy of another, but it also makes pot heads look STUPID. 

    Squares are going to look at this media coverage, and all of their pre-conceived notions about pot heads will be confirmed. 
    This could actually do more harm to the movement then Reefer Madness did… 
    Sad. 
    Truly.
