GREAT DISPENSARY IN COSHOCTON, OHIO -- ASCEND

 I stopped by ASCEND DISPENSARY in Coshocton, Ohio today and found very friendly employees who were extremely knowledgeable. The menu is enormous with tons of different flowers, Indica & Sativa, as well as concentrates, vapes, topicals, tinctures, capsules, candies & gummies. So many to choose from. Luckily for me the employees know their stuff & made great recommendations. I'll go back for sure. p free.

RANDY LANIER'S BOOK "SURVIVAL OF THE FASTEST" A GOOD READ

Image
 Randy Lanier, 1986 Indy-car Rookie of the Year, became a huge pot smuggler, got caught, and was sentenced to LIFE IN PRISON. He eventually got out & this book tells the whole amazing story. According to ROLLING STONE, on the back jacket "Decades ago, Lanier could not walk through a racetrack in America without being thronged by admirers. In the 1980s, he had appeared on the professional racing circuit out of nowhere -- a young phenom who seemed to materialize ex nihilo in a British-made March race car. Lanier had no pedigree, no formal training -- but he was fast.... Many of his competitors were backed by long-dominate and deep-pocketed factory teams -- Porsche, Jaguar, Ford. Lanier's March bore a logo from a local theme restaurant. It was as though an unknown chess player had routed the grandmasters." And,  according to ROAD AND TRACK "Lanier's world became a cocktail of race cars, drug trafficking, trips to Victory Lane, wealth beyond measure, trophies and

WE WENT FROM ARIZONA TO INDIANA INFORMING THE PUBLIC (OCT. 2022)

 WE DROVE FROM ARIZONA THROUGH NEW MEXICO, TEXAS, OKLAHOMA, MISSOURI, ILLINOIS AND INDIANA TO FULFILL OUR MISSION WHICH IS TO INFORM THE PUBLIC 1. THAT HUNDREDS OF MEN & WOMEN ARE SUFFERING IN FEDERAL PRISONS, SOME SERVING LIFE SENTENCES WITH NO CHANCE OF PAROLE, ONLY BECAUSE THEY WERE CONVICTED OF CANNABIS-ONLY CHARGES; AND 2. THAT, NOT A SINGLE PERSON WAS RELEASED UNDER PRESIDENT BIDEN'S "PARDON." WE STOPPED AT WALMARTS, STAPLES, RESTAURANTS, HOTELS, BEST BUYS, GAS STATIONS,  AND HANDED OUT FLYERS AND T-SHIRTS AND SPOKE TO ALL WHO WOULD LISTEN INFORMING THEM OF THE ABOVE. WITHOUT EXCEPTION ALL WERE SURPRISED & ALL AGREED THAT THOSE LOCKED UP SHOULD NOT BE ESPECIALLY IN LIGHT OF THE FACT THAT CANNABIS IS READILY AVAILABLE IN A MAJORITY OF THE STATES. WE STOPPED AT MANY DISPENSARIES WHO ARE MAKING MILLIONS MANUFACTURING AND DISTRIBUTING THE SAME PRODUCT. THEY ARE RIDING ON THE SHOULDERS OF THOSE WHO ARE SUFFERING IN PRISON FOR MANUFACTURING AND DISTRIBUTING CANNAB

Flying High with GRINGO BILLY a smuggler and his wife by Billy and Kay Dekle   Billy AND BETH (NOT HIS WIFE)   Paul Free    Billy, Beth & his wife Kay

GOOD BOOK - WE RECOMMEND IT: FLYING HIGH WITH GRINGO BILLY A SMUGGLER AND HIS WIFE

 Billy Dekle, a good-ole-smuggler from back in the day wrote a great book with his wife. What makes this book unique is that after every chapter Billy writes about flying weed and being in prison, his beautiful wife KAY writes about what she was going through during those times, what she had to deal with. Billy did the crime and did the time. A good man held his mud. Congrats Billy on your freedom & your book. Congrats to you too KAY.  The book, FLYING HIGH WITH GRINGO BILLY, can be purchased on Amazon and elsewhere at a decent price.

PRESIDENT BIDEN RELEASES MARIJUANA PRISONERS

BUT IT ONLY COVERS SIMPLE POSSESSION - I DOUBT IF ANYONE IN FEDERAL PRISON WILL GET OUT, EXCEPT THOSE ARRESTED ON FEDERAL LANDS, SUCH AS MILITARY BASED, FEDERAL PARKS, AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. MAYBE 300 TOTAL. ~ PAUL FREE ____ Statement from President Biden on Marijuana Reform OCTOBER 06, 2022 STATEMENTS AND RELEASES As I often said during my campaign for President, no one should be in jail just for using or possessing marijuana.  Sending people to prison for possessing marijuana has upended too many lives and incarcerated people for conduct that many states no longer prohibit. Criminal records for marijuana possession have also imposed needless barriers to employment, housing, and educational opportunities.  And while white and Black and brown people use marijuana at similar rates, Black and brown people have been arrested, prosecuted, and convicted at disproportionate rates.   Today, I am announcing three steps that I am taking to end this failed approach.   First, I am announci

SEPTEMBER 2022 PROMOTIONAL TRIP

Image
FIRST PHASE OF PROMOTIONAL TOUR COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY. We are pleased to announce that we were able to place our poster boards in a few restaurants and convenience stores in Minnesota. We also met with donors in Wisconsin where we explained our plans for the near future. We received a great reception and positive input. We made inroads to place our poster boards in major dispensaries in Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota and soon, in Phase-II, & -III, in New Jersey, Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Maryland and eventually all 50 states. Our poster boards inform the public that, believe-it-our-not, there are still men and women in prison serving lengthy sentences, including life sentences, for cannabis. They direct the public to our website where they can discover how to help these prisoners, and former prisoners, get out and find jobs, housing and anything else they absolutely need.    

SEPTEMBER 2022

WE HAVE A NEW WEBSITE & IT IS THE BEST! Thanks to WEB CHICK.COM. !!  So, one of our directors ran into a third-grade teacher who informed her that 7 of her students couldn't afford headphones for the computers in the classroom so we took a vote & purchased 8 inexpensive headphones for them.  THANKS TO OUR DONORS!      We are leaving in 2 days to drive to Minnesota, stopping at every dispensary along the way to install whiteboards which tell our story & the stories of all the pot-prisoners and display our t-shirts available for donations. After that we will drive to Seattle and then down the coast through California and then back south to Ohio. We will post regularly. 

IN THE NEWS: BRITTNEY GRINER

Image
Brittney Griner, a former American women's basketball star, was sentenced to nine years in prison for deliberately smuggling cannabis into Russia. Prior to hearing the verdict, Griner apologized to the court and requested leniency. She was fined $1 Million Rubles (about $16,400). As she explained, she "never intended to hurt anybody" and "never intended to put the Russian people at risk." She said, "I did not mean to break any laws," adding that her mistake "doesn't end my life here," and "I know everyone keeps talking about political pawns and politics, but I hope that is far from this courtroom." In the US, the same words are heard in courtrooms on a daily basis, but the sentences are much longer. Yes, nine years is a long sentence for possession of cannabis, but thousands of people are imprisoned in prison for the same reason. #BringBrittneyHome Additional Resources of Support: Change.org BlackFeministFuture.org
