Medical Marijuana Becoming Legal In New York

Andrew Cuomo by Pat Arnow croppedThose New Yorkers who remember the Rockefeller drug laws may be amazed to learn that Governor Andrew Cuomo is about to sign an executive order that will permit medical marijuana in New York State. The New York Times has the details:

Joining a growing group of states that have loosened restrictions on marijuana, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York plans this week to announce an executive action that would allow limited use of the drug by those with serious illnesses, state officials say.

The turnabout by Mr. Cuomo, who had long resisted legalizing medical marijuana, comes as other states are taking increasingly liberal positions on it — most notably Colorado, where thousands have flocked to buy the drug for recreational use since it became legal on Jan. 1.

Mr. Cuomo’s plan will be far more restrictive than the laws in Colorado or California, where medical marijuana is available to people with conditions as mild as backaches.

If you are a fellow obsessive lost civilization/alien abduction/alternate history nerd such as I presume to be, than chances are you will have engorged geeky gonads for all that I’ve just lain before your feet, you scurvy information mendicants!

The title of the lecture is “Exploring Consciousness: Upper Paleolithic Cave Art to Modern Day Shamanism”.

The Misfits’ Jerry Only at New York Comic Con

I really wasn’t expecting to bump into Jerry Only and his Misfits bandmate Chupacabra (yeah, yeah, I know, it’s not the original line-up) at New York Comic Con, but that’s part and parcel of the madness of that event. I don’t do many music industry interviews (and this one was spur of the moment with zero prep time, and entirely off the top of my head to boot) but I rose to the occasion and did the best I could under the circumstances. Chupacabra doesn’t talk much, by the way. Hope you enjoy, Disinfonauts.

Danny Panzella of Peaceful Streets Project Arrested for Handing Out Flyers at Penn Station

Via PeaceNewsNow.com

Super-activist Danny Panzella of TruthSquad.tv was arrested earlier this morning inside Pennsylvania Station in New York City for criminally dispensing information to passers-by who voluntarily accepted his fliers. Danny was informing the blissfully ignorant public of the latest “drill” by NYPD conditioning the sheeple to act obedient during a subway crisis. During today’s “drill,” the city’s blue light gang released a potentially hazardous gas into the subway, contaminating the airways of innocent passengers.

Which action is criminal? Dispensing toxic gas into the lungs of the unconsenting, or dispensing pamphlets informing them about it?

Tracking the New York State Bigfoot

In early May of last year on a week day, I hiked out to a small pond in a remote corner of Adirondack State park. The snow had not been melted for very long at all and the trail was very wet. The last people to sign the log book at the trail head had been cross-country skiers. It was slow going on the soggy trail, mud coated my boots in thick clumps. There was apparently a detour on the last leg of the trail, but the marker appeared wrong. It said .8 miles to the lake, or something like that. I remember it taking forever. So when I finally got to the lake, in frustration I yelled out, “Point eight miles my ass!”

Just then I heard a huge noise, like a large rock being thrown against a boulder. It was unmistakable and made a loud reverberating bang. .… Read the rest

Danny P of the Peaceful Streets Project on Documenting the Police and the Real Effects of Voting

“Protect and Serve Each Other”

A quick look into the inner workings of the sleeple.  *Messenger kill.. post hypnotic suggestion program engage...”I” will recite all programs demonizing those who violate control protocol #666 and regurge/rebuke them proudly… useful idiot simulation loaded…

Danny P. weathers the mind turds hurled by a random audience drone in this little vignette of the daily life of a “conspiracy theorist/activist at large”.  Elections have been stolen routinely without challenge for at least a decade in America.  Go tell the dumbfuxxs in the stands their team lost and the stadium fell into a sinkhole, dark knight (predicts) returns style.

For more information on how you can “protect and serve each other” and not depend on the state please visit the Peaceful Streets Project.

I’m sure Disinfonauts will have a wide variety of opinions on this, and I’m very eager to hear them:

Via Yahoo News:

A newspaper in New York has received a wave of criticism from its readers after publishing the names and addresses of all of the individuals with handgun or pistol permits in its coverage area.

Hundreds of residents in New York’s Westchester and Rockland counties were surprised to find their names and addresses listed on a map posted by The Journal News on Sunday. Users can click any dot on the map to see which of their neighbors has a permit for a gun.

The map sparked more than 500 comments from readers within a day of its appearance on the website, many of them voicing outrage at the paper’s decision to make the information public.

“This is CRAZY!! why in the world would you post every licensed gun owner information??
