I. I think it’s a major error to depict Marc as in the “Help for Heroes” ad (below, right) “casually” puffing on a $igarette (those who know, know it’s a joint, right?) rather than promoting some change in use patterns (one-hitter? vapouriser?) which could eliminate “heavy use” drug effects caused by heat shock, carbon monoxide, mixed-in tobacco etc. (highly relevant in UK; some kids may not know Toke Pure is more typical in Canada) but blamed on the cannabis.
Note that large clouds of smoke are shown escaping, suggesting that Marc is one of those elite types who don’t care about wasting something expensive right in front of everybody.
II. Something to campaign for– during whatever time he is in, does Marc have access to internet, email, or even pen and pencil to express his basic rights of free speech– and if not, why not?

Im pretty sure no one mixes tobacco with weed over there, just a stupid thing us Europeans do (which I don’t partake in). As for “wasting weed” if your an “elite types” you would know that THC and other cannabinoids get absorbed within a second or two after inhalation. Unlike Salvia for instance.

I bet the DEA are screwing themselves because of all the states that have allowed medical pot now, it shows that he has succeeded to some degree.
the UK governments are more interested in fighting there wars and screwing people over than changing the laws.
Peter Lets keep doing what this guy is doing and Force the UK’s ability to stay stagnant any longer and install some common sense into their heads with the overbearing science there is.
How primitive of the DEA to say there is no hard or soft drugs its just Drugs that comment she made is non-political, uneducated, ignorant and unsound and the Americans let these people decide what to do.
the only danger of pot being a gateway drug to harder drugs for kids and adults is the fact you have to buy it off people off the streets who sell and push hard drugs as well. Smoking pot does not make you decide to go out and get MDMA, cocaine, or heroin, not if you are an educated potter, its nicer to get stoned and be creative.
If this country (the UK) let people set medical pot shops up, there would be no contamination from other drugs that do harm, and that would allow the police to know where smokers are and let them deal with the problems that do cause serious crime, and distress to the people who are uneducated who vote and write in papers about how bad pot is.
people like you and me peter could help, educate medicate and eradicate the crossover of cannabis and hard drugs, and the government should be employing people like us to make this sociological integration and change, not ignoring us and making it worse.
Look forward to your next post speak soon.

[…] The Prince Of Pot […]
I made this comment in response to a video I watched today « jamesfinch01

This issue is intimately involved with that of cannabis – Big Pharma’s attempts to gain control over anything in nature that may have medicinal qualities:

Yes indeed, have a look at this blog….
I have left the following comment….
The most useful medicinal and therapeutic herb, cannabis, has been illegal to possess for many years, mainly to allow big pharmaceutical companies to make huge obscene profits from selling poisonous ‘remedies’. Now they want to ban many other herbal cures for similar reasons. This must be stopped.

Here is a petition to try to stop this happening – more than 430,000 have signed it in 2 days:

The USA will legalise very soon, I think it’ll take us 10 years after they do to follow suit.
IS there an update in the docu about Marc’s situation? It’s been a while now and I’ve just started watching
April 30, 2011 at 8:16 pm
Marc, all i can say is -lets get you the Fuck out of Prison!
There is only one criminal, denial of science
If as much time was spent on cannabis on TV as futile wars for resources, cannabis would be powering our future like ethanol in south America, i know which one does less harm to the planet – any guesses?

Here’s a website with a real WEALTH of information….
There is SO much stuff there it is astounding.
To enable widespread dissemination of the information have a two DVD set for download, it is a hefty 6 and a bit gigs to download, as I am on a 3Gb cap there is no way I can download them, if there is anyone here who does torrents and could download them, I would love to get a copy of each, I would like to be able to distribute copies to people I meet etc.
Here’s the link for the torrent…..

I’m downloading the torrent.
The website turns me off straight away though. Is it David Icke or a reincarnation of the old LCA?
Seriously,when are people going to start realising that you will never be taken seriously when your website looks like it was designed by a special needs project?

That’s great Peter, if we have copies of the DVD’s to pass around among Clear supporters I think it could be a very valuable resource. I do agree about the ‘look’ of their website though, it looks rather akin to a database running on an Amstrad CPC9128 circa 1985 or similar ;-)
