Marc Emery Punished for an Unwritten Rule

Written by Jodie Emery. Read the full article here.

Today Marc was punished with two months of no commissary (food, shampoo, soap, envelopes, stamps, etc.) and his cellmate for one month because I gave his cellmate money! Apparently it’s against the rules even though it’s not in the rule book. Marc was staying healthy eating nuts, trail mix, and tuna and turkey packets from commissary, now he has to “survive” on meals like peanut butter, bread, and rice.

I’m so disappointed and angry. I have sent money and books to different inmates before, there’s no rule against it. Marc had two hearings with the Lieutenants of the prison and one was really mean, while the second was less so, but they decided that the appropriate punishment for Marc was two months of no commissary.

When Marc was first called to see the Lieutenant last week, the Lt. was being extremely rude, aggressive, and even threatening. He said that he reads all of Marc’s emails and letters and listens to all of his phone calls, and that he didn’t approve of the chapter Marc wrote about what it’s like going to prison (for Barry Cooper’s upcoming book) and that he thought it was “bullshit”. Marc didn’t even criticize the prison! He just objectively wrote about the process of it, and of course he said the food was dismal, but that’s the truth!

So the Lt. was pissed off about what Marc was writing, but that’s not against the rules. So he said that it was against the rules for me to send money into Marc’s cellmate’s account, even though that’s not in the rule book either! They decided to ensure that they both suffer because of my generosity, which I pass on from the people who give it to me.

Pot Ice Cream at High Scream

Pot ice cream? Sounds like a stoner’s dream, doesn’t it? In California, those with a legal medical marijuana card can go to High Scream and get marijuana-infused ice cream. It’s widely known that not only can weed be smoked or inhaled, it can also be infused into food.

Brownies, muffins, and breads are all common foods used with the drug. However, it’s not just “baked” goods anymore – the new hot item is actually quite cold – ice cream.

Boasting flavors with Ben and Jerry’s sounding names like Banannabis Foster, Straw-Mari Cheesecake and TRIPle Chocolate Brownie (and more on the way) this ice cream will not only taste fab and leave you satisfied, it also makes the person eating it feel better.

You have to admit – a lot of creative things come out of California. Sadly, not everyone can try the legal medical marijuana ice cream. You have to have a doctor’s orders!

The cost is $15 for a half pint, which contains 2 to 4 doses of pot.

California Beer and Beverage Distributors against Proposition 19

On September 7, a major new front opened up in the campaign for Proposition 19, the ballot measure to tax and regulate marijuana in California. On that day, the California Beer and Beverage Distributors made a $10,000 contribution to a committee opposing Proposition 19.

In response, MPP issued the following statement by Steve Fox, director of government relations for the MPP and co-author ofMarijuana is Safer: So why are we driving people to drink?:

“Unless the beer distributors in California have suddenly developed a philosophical opposition to the use of intoxicating substances, the motivation behind this contribution is clear,” Fox said. “Plain and simple, the alcohol industry is trying to kill the competition. They know that marijuana is less addictive, less toxic and less likely to be associated with violent behavior than alcohol. So they don’t want adults to have the option of using marijuana legally instead of alcohol. Their mission is to drive people to drink.”

The alcohol industry is now working hand-in-hand with the law enforcement community to keep marijuana illegal. For example, the California Police Chiefs Association has given at least $30,000 to the “No on Proposition 19” campaign, while the California Narcotics Officers’ Association has chipped in $20,500 of its own. This partnership underscores the hypocrisy among law enforcement officials opposed to Prop. 19.

“Members of law enforcement have argued against Proposition 19 by asserting, ‘We have enough problems with alcohol, we don’t need to add another intoxicating substance to the mix,’ implying that marijuana is just as bad as alcohol,” Fox continued. “But the truth is that a legal marijuana market would not add another dangerous intoxicant to the mix; rather it would provide adults with a less harmful legal alternative to alcohol.”

“In their campaign to defeat Proposition 19, members of law enforcement and the alcohol industry have joined together under an umbrella group calling themselves ‘Public Safety First.’ Sadly, by fighting to keep marijuana illegal and steering adults toward alcohol instead, they are putting public safety last,” said Fox.

Shots fired into Mexico by U.S. Border Patrol agents

(CNN) — U.S. Border Patrol agents fired gunshots into Mexico over the weekend after being attacked during a marijuana seizure in Mission, Texas, the agency told CNN on Monday.

The incident between border patrol agents and alleged drug traffickers took place around 7:40 a.m. Saturday, Border Patrol spokeswoman Rosalinda Huey said.

“Our agents were being fired upon and they did respond with fire back into Mexico,” she said. “I don’t have the number of how many people were involved. But none of our agents were injured.”

Agents seized over 1,000 pounds of marijuana during the incident, according to Huey. The incident is under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI and the Mexican government, Huey said.

“At this point we don’t know what cartel it’s tied to or if it’s just an unaffiliated source. We’re not attributing it to anybody right now,” she said.

Although attacks against border patrol agents are not uncommon, assaults against agents have decreased in the last fiscal year, she said.

Mission is a small border town in the Rio Grande Valley near McAllen, Texas.

Border patrol agents this year have seized more than 800,000 pounds of marijuana in this area, Huey said.

In June, a border patrol agent in El Paso, Texas, fired into Mexico killing a 15-year-old from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Surveillance video of the incident showed the teen throwing rocks at the agent before being shot.
