Our good friend, active supporter, and firm believer in maintaining human and civil liberties will have his legacy go on in his absence. Now I received an e-mail forward from him regarding a contact entry that came to him after already taking into action the compliance of his so-called probation terms. If I receive further notice the following comment will be removed for his protection:
Remove this Web Site immediately or be subject to sanctions up to amd including a Report of Violation. This violates the conditions of your probation and I'M giving you a order to remove the site immediately.

Haha, I must say, where did this guy get the credibility to become a probation officer? In two very short sentences I count 6 grammar errors…Hmmm I guess it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work your way into the system. On the brighter side of things we have already seen some support for our young activist in the following comment:
“Hi, This is just so freakin stupid. The USE of cannabis is illegal, discussing it or debating it is NOT!! Look through the law that defines cannabis and you'll find NOTHING stating that it is illegal to pass around information, discuss the situation, Arguing with the law IS legal depending on how you do it. You better believe, I’ve been rocking the boat in this country for a while now but I haven’t received any threats from the home-office. Get a lawyer to look into it for you; you are perfectly entitled to discuss cannabis, so, fu*k em! If they arrest you for it, the judge will have to side with you as there is no law against what you have been doin, you can then sue the federal government for wrongful arrest/imprisonment, unlawful detain and so on. Give em hell. There’s tons of people behind you.”
Aww the wonderful glory of open debate, here we have a perfect example of the system getting upset, and making false claims, using scare tactics, and attacking our friend who has already been through so much this year. He has lost his father, and is now on the verge of losing his home, car, other tangible property…Still facing prison because certain law enforcement officials aren’t at all compassionate or considerate about the situation he is going through. Making claims that they are trying to make him a better person when in reality they are bringing him down, and destroying his quality of life. Yet we see how when our greatest members are attacked it only fuels the movement and pushes us closer to making a change. It builds our fire, and strengthens our courage…However, if I know my friend the way I think I do, you can bet that he is looking for help in the legality of taking his right to free press, his right to free speech, and his right to an opinion.
GOD be with our brother, and we shall not let his work be forgotten!
PS if anyone can help our brother financially he really needs it, I will see if I can get a donations widget onto the site on his behalf!
