Cannabis Laws & NRA, Compromising America’s Security is dedicated to all the NRA members out there who are now perhaps unknowingly, responsible for weakening America’s security.
If you don’t have time to read this now, please consider signing our Change.org petition at the end of this blog. We are calling on Congress to deschedule cannabis from the drug schedules. This will help strengthen our national security.
When the NRA hears talk of a new gun restriction or ammo tax – they are up in arms making sure everyone hears their raised voices of opposition. Alarm bells are ringing, flags are waving, fists are shaking… The message from the NRA and it’s members is loud and clear: “Any new tax or new restrictions on firearms or ammo would be an infringement on the people’s Second Amendment rights, so back off.”
Those who wish to rob America of her independence know how hard it has been to take away these freedoms. Especially since America has an armed and well regulated militia willing to protect our beloved Declaration of Independence.
The Founding Fathers were well aware of this threat to our independence. They understood that America’s enemies would be coming for the people’s firearms. So, with the Second Amendment they went out of their way to spell out the two essentials necessary to preserve the security of the free state:
1) A well regulated militia. (Editor’s note: Our definition of a well regulated militia is the able body men and women who own firearms and are willing to defend their neighborhoods, local community farms etc.)
2) The people’s rights to keep and bear arms.
Many of us know the stereotype of pro Second Amendment gun owners. Quiet, thoughtful “no-nonsense” people. You won’t see a lamp shade on any of these guys/gals heads at the office party. Many of them have that innate filter that can easily detect BS or any other nonsense.
They have studied history and see brutal regimes who started out by confiscating the people’s firearms. They are not going to allow this to happen in America. (Or have they already?) They insist their Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms will not be infringed upon.
The Second Amendment proponent may conclude with a condescending, standoffish attitude… If someone isn’t willing or able to defend themselves and their country with a firearm – what good are they?

US Drug Enforcement Agency declares: Cannabis will remain a Schedule 1 drug. Case closed. (Apparently the US Department of Health and Human Services has no say in the matter…) According to the United States Drug Enforcement Agency, Schedule I drugs are those that have the following characteristics: The drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse. The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical treatment use in the U.S.
The Real Truth About Cannabis
Did you know that the Federal government has a patent on cannabis for it’s medicinal properties? Yep. Patent No. 6630507, held by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, covers the use of cannabinoids for treating a wide range of diseases. There’s your tax dollars hard at work – Washington DC telling us cannabis has no currently accepted medical use while they have a patent on it’s medicinal benefits.
It’s also worth noting that the Controlled Substances Act lists cannabis (marihuana) as a non-narcotic. A narcotic is defined as a chemical agent that induces stupor, coma, or insensibility to pain. The cannabis sativa plant is an herb that does not fit the description of being a narcotic.
Looking up “Side Effects of Cannabis” this came up: Effects of Cannabis Wikipedia: Psychological effects
Some effects may include a general alteration or heightened state of conscious perception, euphoria, feelings of well-being, relaxation or stress reduction, increased appreciation of the arts, including humor and music (especially discerning its various components/instruments), joviality, metacognition and introspection, enhanced recollection (episodic memory)…
What does this have to do with the militia part of the Second Amendment?
– A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state…
Maybe the most important question proponents of the Second Amendment need to ask is this… Which government agency do you believe? The one that says cannabis should remain a Schedule I drug since it has a high potential for abuse and no currently accepted medical treatment use?
Or the United States Department of Health and Human Services, which has a patent on the use of cannabinoids for treating a wide range of diseases?
Does cannabis, this non-narcotic, raise the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior? Do you personally see or have you seen unpredictable behavior in cannabis users? Or is this Congress’s way of stripping away the Second Amendment rights of millions of Americans – with the anti-cannabis NRA’s help.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Upholds Ban on Gun Sales to Medical Marijuana Card Holders
Snopes.com verifies that this story of a Ban on Gun Sales is indeed true. They report: A federal appeals court has ruled that an existing federal ban on the sale of guns to holders of medical marijuana card holders does not violate the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits infringement of the right to keep and bear arms.
Where’s the NRA when you need them?
Did the NRA and its members hear what these 3 judges just said? That preventing millions of otherwise law abiding citizens from buying firearms isn’t an infringement on the Second Amendment. What?! No alarm bells, flags or even fists shaking over this infringement on the Second Amendment rights of medical marijuana card holders?
One would expect the loud-mouthed freedom loving NRA to be working tirelessly to prevent the disarming of these Americans. Instead, this anti-cannabis NRA group allows the giving up essential liberty – firearm ownership from America’s prospective militia members. Do NRA members feel more secure knowing Medical Marijuana card holders have been disarmed?
They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security. Benjamin Franklin
The ruling applies to the nine Western states that fall under the court’s jurisdiction, including California, Washington and Oregon. The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by Ms. S. Rowan Wilson, a Nevada woman who tried to buy a firearm in 2011 after obtaining a medical marijuana card.
The 9th Circuit in its 3-0 decision said Congress reasonably concluded that marijuana and other drug use “raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated.”
One would expect the NRA to call out Congress and the DEA out on this blatant lie. Why isn’t the NRA demanding Congress give proof of this so called irrational or unpredictable behavior that’s been found in MMJ patients? After all, it’s wreaking havoc on our Constitution.
Not the the NRA cares but, now, unarmed MMJ patients and growers who prefer growing their own organic medicine have something else to worry about – armed or even unarmed thugs waltzing in and doing what thugs do. How long will it be before the authorities outlaw (seize) home grows? Why? To keep these unarmed MMJ patients safe from these thugs, of course. Forget about giving them back their Second Amendment rights – take their medicine, too.
At least we can rest assured knowing that if and when the SWAT teams go in for a raid/plunder they will be safe. Safe from the unarmed MMJ patients just trying to grow their own cannabis. It’s as if our opioid addicted country has been hypnotized to hate cannabis and cannabis users.
Here’s a troubling question: How many of these SWAT team guys are also anti-cannabis NRA members? Is it possible to be one of these SWAT team guys and also be a proponent of the rights granted in the Second Amendment? Seems unlikely. You can’t serve two masters.
What does the Second Amendment militia people think about these SWAT teams? Are these SWAT teams here to intimidate the people and the well regulated militia? The SWAT teams loyalty doesn’t seem to favor the people – expecially when cannabis is involved.
Cannabis Laws & NRA, Compromising America’s Security
The NRA should be outraged about all of this deception and intimidation. So should all proponents of the Second Amendment. Especially since this ruling further weakens America’s Second Amendment militia. The ruling limits the number of potential armed militia members able to buy firearms to protect themselves, their neighborhoods and their country if needs be.
Disarming millions of America’s militia compromises America’s security.
Come to think of it, shouldn’t the Feds, the DEA, 3 judge panels and the NRA etc. be working diligently to protect Ms. Wilson’s Second Amendment right to protect herself in her own home? Shouldn’t all these groups be working diligently to strengthen all of our Second Amendment rights?
After all, didn’t many of these public servants swear to uphold the US Constitution upon taking office? Don’t they also see the value in having a strong militia willing to defend our independence from enemies, both foreign and domestic?
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
MARTIN NIEMÖLLER 1892-1984
The 3 judges out West stated: Congress reasonably concluded that marijuana and other drug use “raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated.” …”other drug use”…? Is there anyone out there who uses any of these “other drugs” from Ambien to Zoloft… and also owns a firearm? Probably millions of people. Will they be targeted next as having irrational and unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated”?
By the way, alcohol is also considered a drug…
America is being disarmed one group at a time. Does the NRA see this as a threat to America’s security? Now we hear talk that some groups want to strip seniors and some Veterans of their Second Amendment rights.
Looking at the NRA’s actions they seem to almost always do the exact opposite of what we’d expect them to do. They sprinkle in a little truth here and there, only to fool us. They are allowing millions of Americans to be quietly disarmed while pretending to protect these very rights. The NRA has become the counterfeit NRA or the antichrist for the Second Amendment if you will.
This deceptive counterfiet NRA regime has put it self “in place of” the Second Amendment. Instead of focusing on the Second Amendment, like we should, this current NRA group wants us to look to them as protectors of our “gun rights”.
The NRA has done nothing to support the well regulated militia part of the Second Amendment. They remain quiet when the Establishment media organizations demonize the Second Amendment militia as being irrational, dangerous and unpredictable. Shouldn’t media organizations also support America’s militia?
The spirit of the Second Amendment militia has been cast to the ground by this anti-Second Amendment counterfeit NRA group.
Also, thanks in part to this anti-cannabis counterfeit NRA group the penalties for having a firearm and “getting caught” with cannabis are severe.
Check out the following information from http://www.manzurilaw.com to see if this still looks like America to you:
Whether you’re operating in a state or federal arena, possession of guns and medical cannabis can complicate your life significantly.
Cannabis with Guns can Result in More Prison Time than Murder!
In terms of federal gun laws, possession of guns and cannabis will increase a defendant’s prison sentence exponentially. For example, in 2004 in Utah, federal Judge Paul G. Cassell sentenced a man who beat an elderly woman to death with a log—to 22 years. A few hours later, Cassell sentenced Weldon H. Angelos, a 25-year-old first-time drug offender, to 55 years. If you think Cassell liked sentencing a small-change drug dealer to more time than a violent killer, guess again, he called it “unjust, cruel and even irrational.” But the judge had no choice. Federal mandatory minimum laws demanded the sentence—a jury found Angelos guilty on three separate charges of possessing a firearm while he sold a half- pound of cannabis for $350. The first charge of possessing a gun during a drug transaction brought a five-year sentence—the second two, 25 years each. That adds up to 55 years.
The week before that, the Albuquerque Journal reported on a case in which a federal judge claimed that he sentenced a man who killed his own mother to 6 1/2 years after he sentenced a 29-year-old mother of three to life without parole because she had a gun while dealing cannabis.
The message for Californians who use medical cannabis should be pretty clear: The federal government may go after you for using the plant, and the penalty can be harsh if you possess both legal (in California) medical cannabis and a lawfully-owned gun.
According to the Feds, Medical Cannabis Users Cannot Possess A Gun!
In 2011, the ATF issued a memo that declared that it is illegal for anyone with an MMJ card to possess a gun or ammunition. Violating this could carry a 5- or 10-year sentence in federal prison.
Still America? Can you imagine receiving a 5- or 10-year sentence in federal prison for having a MMJ card and a gun or ammunition? What is the crime that was committed to receive such a harsh sentence?
Guns, cannabis and hemp – the enslaving globalist’s nightmare.
The anti-cannabis ant-hemp cabal has been working hard to keep the billion dollar cannabis and hemp industries out of the hands of the people. Lets face it, these harsh sentences aren’t on the books to protect society from the scourges caused from this safe and industrious plant.
Enemies of American independence have outlawed Americans from growing hemp for food, fuel, fiber and medicine years ago. Hemp seeds are a super food. For both man and livestock. Hemp seeds can also produce clean burning fuel. Cannabis THC is known to kill cancer cells. On and on…
These billion dollar cannabis and hemp industries would help us strengthen our local communities. We could regain control and independence of our local economies. Thus, the enslaving globalist’s nightmare. Thus, the harsh sentences which could result in a 5- to 10 year sentence for getting caught growing weed and packing heat.
Our cannabis & hemp loving Founding Fathers would be turning in their graves.
There are thousands of able bodied men and women who have been incarcerated for “getting caught” with cannabis. For many, this was their only crime – getting “caught” with it. The NRA should be working hard to overturn these unjust laws and to get these people released from prison. They are weakening America’s militia.
So now thanks in part to the anti-cannabis NRA, there are two Second Amendment militia groups. 1) The armed militia and 2) the disarmed militia.
The “no nonsense” patriot looks around his or her neighborhood for other potential able body men and women to team up with if all hell breaks loose. Which militia camp would most freedom fighters want to join? The armed militia camp or the disarmed militia camp?
Guns and drugs and drugs and guns.
Looking at each militia camp with a “no nonsense” type filter we see the armed, cammo wearing group having a few alcoholics in its ranks since there are roughly 18 million full blown alcoholics in the US today. Several million more are considered to have a drinking problem.
How long would it be before they need another drink and start to spiral out of control without it? Alcoholics can be very selfish and difficult to be with especially in trying circumstances. They love liberty but, they’re hooked on the booze.
Would there be any opiate addicts in this armed neighborhood militia to team up with? Probably. Antidepressant prescribing has risen nearly 400% since 1988, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, Drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the US, with 47,055 lethal drug overdoses in 2014. Opioid addiction is driving this epidemic, with 18,893 overdose deaths related to prescription pain relievers, and 10,574 overdose deaths related to heroin in 2014. These people love their liberty but, they’re hooked on opioids – and it’s killing many of them.
A 400% increase since 1988. Is this part of the plan? Get as many people addicted (enslaved) to these and other mind-altering prescription drugs as they can. Then, lead them around by the nose – disarm and or incarcerate them since their drug use “raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated.” Either way, with this many alcoholics and addicts – America’s militia is weakened.
No offense to any addicts out there but let’s face it, after a while, withdrawal would set in and these folks would be pretty much useless members of any neighborhood militia. By the way, many opiate addicts were successfully kicking their habit using a natural food supplement called Kratom a harmless herbal supplement used as a safe alternative to opioids in pain relief. Source: Snopes.com
~ News Flash ~ On 30 August 2016, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) issued a press release announcing their intent to effectively ban a little-known herbal compound called kratom as of 30 September 2016. Will Congress step in to stop the DEA?
The DEA’s press release held that kratom poses “an imminent hazard to public safety,” adding that 660 calls had been made to poison control centers about the substance over a five-year period. The notice reported that 15 “kratom-related deaths” had occurred between 2014 and 2016 and stated that the supplement was being reclassified as a Schedule I drug.
Apparently, 47,055 lethal drug overdoses in 2014 is no problem. Yet, with 15 (supposed) “kratom-related deaths” having occurred between 2014 and 2016 the DEA stated that the supplement was being reclassified (along side heroin) as a Schedule I drug.
Kratom was and is helping prospective militia members kick their opioid habit and the DEA wants to ban it. Doesn’t the NRA want prospective militia members to be free from their opioid addictions? Kratom was apparently helping.
Oh, the hypocrisy!
It should also be noted that over the last 20+ years virtually all the mass murderers had one thing in common – they were all taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as Prozac, Paxil or Zoloft. Side effects may include violent behavior, mania or aggression, which can all lead to suicide.
If a mind-altering drug can give you suicidal tendencies, lets face it – it can also give you homicidal tendencies. These drugs are turning people into “killing machines”. Who in their right mind would want to team up with someone taking any of these suicidal/homicidal concoctions?
Drug manufacturers concoct and push these drugs on us knowing full well that people under the influence of these drugs will want to kill themselves and others. Shouldn’t pharmaceutical companies change their drug concoctions so people will no longer be so addicted or have the desire to kill? Shouldn’t Congress, the DEA and the NRA be petitioning Big Pharma to change these dangerous concoctions of theirs?
Who’s on what?
There’s been a spike in shootings by the police lately. Cops are killing people under questionable circumstances. Are these cops also on these mind-altering drugs that can produce suicidal or homicidal thoughts? Shouldn’t this be a part of the discussion?
Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Colorado. The Real Lesson of Columbine: Psychiatric Drugs Induce Violence
Way back in 1999, Columbine High shooter Eric Harris was taking the antidepressant Luvox at the time he and Dylan Klebold opened fire at the Columbine High School, killing 1 2 students and a teacher and wounding 26 others before killing themselves. At least one public report exists of a friend of Klebold who witnessed Klebold taking the antidepressants Paxil and Zoloft and urged him to come off them. Officially, Klebold’s medical records remain sealed.
Drugs and guns and guns and drugs
Dr. Ann Blake Tracy, executive director of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness says the Columbine killers’ brains were awash in serotonin, the chemical which causes violence and aggression and triggers a sleep-walking disorder in which a person literally acts out their worst nightmare.
Harris became obsessed with homicidal and suicidal thoughts “within weeks” after he began taking Zoloft, according to Dr. Tracy. Due to his obsession with killing, Harris was switched to Luvox, which was in his system at the time of the shooting, according to his autopsy. However, the change from Zoloft to Luvox is like switching from Pepsi to Coke, Dr Tracy said.
Thanks to Big Pharma it’s safe to say Eric and Dylan weren’t in their right mind.
After all these years still nothing from the Establishment news organizations or the anti-Second Amendment counterfeit NRA about this important part of this Columbine High tragedy. These two kids were put on mind altering drugs that made them want to kill themselves and others. Practically everyone and everything has been blamed for this tragedy – except the drugs and the doctors that prescribed them.
All the while the Establishment media continues to focus on the accessibility of the guns used by all these mass murderers. The anti Second Amendment counterfeit NRA keeps their mouthes shut about all of this.
Is there anyone in Camp Cammo that’s on the “no fly list”? “The what – are you kidding?” you ask. Yes, the “no fly list”. Question: Isn’t the “no fly list” to keep terrorists from boarding airplanes and blowing them up mid-air? Answer: Yes. But, someone on the “no fly list” can buy firearms yet medical marijuana patients can’t? Yep.
The people on the “no fly list” may not love your liberty but they can still buy their firearms. Gotta wonder what would happen to Camp Cammo if you put these “no fly list” people on Luvox, Paxil or Zoloft…
The wheels would be coming off the Camp Cammo buggy in no time. With this group of alcoholics, addicts and potential anti-American suicide bombers things could quickly turn into a blazing freak show. Especially as each person’s supply of “goods” dries up.
Could the cannabis using Camp Tye-dye group be any worse than the Camp Cammo group of patriots?
Unfortunately, Camp Tye-dye has been disarmed because Congress, 3 judges, the DEA and the anti-cannabis NRA assert that people’s cannabis use “raises the risk of irrational or unpredictable behavior with which gun use should not be associated.” Can you sense the pressure from the international elitets behind this un American push to disarm Americans?
What are the negative side effects of cannabis – are there any?
We looked and found cannabis made its debut thousands of years ago. Today, we know there are millions of people using it for many different reasons. But we don’t hear of anyone killing themselves or others while using it. Is there any irrational or unpredictable behavior associated with it?
The “Effects of Cannabis” link on Wikipedia didn’t list any. Just the heightened state of conscious perception, euphoria, feelings of well-being, relaxation or stress reduction, etc.
Other than these there are no deaths or reported negative side effects from using cannabis. What a difference between those with the suicidal/homicidal thoughts versus those with feelings of well-being, relaxation or stress reduction…
Ok, maybe all this fun and euphoria associated with cannabis isn’t for the average gun owner. But, do these effects from cannabis make proponents of the Second Amendment want to disarm prospective neighborhood militia members?
Wouldn’t Camp Tye-dye offer more safety and security? Especially considering the ticking time bomb nut house that Camp Cammo would soon turn into.
So, considering there are no known withdrawals associated with cannabis, ask yourself, which is the most prepared, ready and alert group? Camp Cammo or Camp Tye-dye? Most would conclude it’s the group with the increased awareness of sensation and less addictions… Camp Tye-dye. The only problem is these people with their increased awareness of sensation, have been disarmed.
Who is responsible for disarming these Americans? Congress, the DEA, a 3 judge panel, the counterfeit NRA, and the 4-5 million members of the NRA who apparently couldn’t care less about these other Americans. The very people who we trust to protect the entire Second Amendment including the part about the well regulated militia.
So, it’s easy to conclude that this current anti Second Amendment counterfeit NRA is doing what it can to weaken America’s militia. The very militia necessary for the security of our free state. Our opioid addicted, drunken militias combined with our vulnerable food supply puts our overall security at risk.
As we go forward, will Second Amendment proponants agree with the globalists, the Feds and the current NRA regime that disarming cannabis users is necessary since it is so dangerous? Or will these freedom fighters consider the above information concerning cannabis and begin supporting everyone’s right to use cannabis & hemp and the right to keep and bear arms?
Tonight, when your head hits the pillow you can sleep securely knowing your cannabis using neighbors have been disarmed and won’t be causing any trouble. Or, tonight when your head hits the pillow you can be overcome with a sense of uneasiness knowing that your cannabis using neighbors have been disarmed and won’t be causing any trouble.
All this madness could end if Congress would just deschedule cannabis. If you agree then, please consider signing our Change.org petition below asking Congress to acknowledge the safety and benefits of this herb, and to have it removed from the drug schedules. Thanks.
