Thomas Jefferson Hemp Fest- St.Louis

Downtown St. Louis saw a motley group of 500 supporters gather in support of Cannabis-Hemp-Marijuana Re-Legalization. Incense and the pungent odor of something else helped to create an an athmosphere broken only for a while as blue clad civil authorities confronted organizers for permits in what would be the only tense moment all day. 
Internationally nearly 100 cities in 20 Countries observed the Millennium Marijuana March. Promised by organizers to be maintained annually until prohibition is repealed, The March To The Arch saw half of that number march at 4:20 towards the Federal Gateway Expansion Memorial and The Gateway Arch. Sidetracked shortly at some media building, the smoky protesters perambled towards the riverfront, the noisome crowd punctuated periodically by usually supportive automobilians. Landing on the steps, after passing by The Arch, the group, mostly made up of young, white males led by old white males, listened appreciatively at the round robin rendered by The Cannabis Commandos of the Saint Louis Chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. By 5:20, coinkadinkly as young jesus freaks swept into our party, the young and previously disaffected, reached a state of boredom known as "Lets march on the Federal Courthouse." Done. A fine day, I got some sun. No arrests, lotsapot. The 60's back for a few hours, the vibes, the feeling of oneness, once again. Kudos to Cures Not Wars and Dana Beal for a terrific job of giving the start of The Revolution a Date of Origin, a beginning glimpse of an Hemptopian future, where there will be harmony with nature and each other. Cannabem Liberemus. See ya'll May 5th 2000 Cannabis Era, for The March Two The Arch.

Jefferson Speaks
The greatest service that can be rendered to any country is to add a useful plant to its culture. When governments fear the people there is liberty. When the people fear the government there is tyranny. I have sworn upon the alter of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. The God that gave us life gave us liberty at the same time.The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.If the obstacles of bigotry and priestcraft can be surmounted, we may hope that common sense will suffice to do everything else.Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now. Thus in France the emetic was once forbidden as a medicine, and the potato as an article of food. Government is just as fallible, too, when it fixes systems in physics. Galileo was sent to the Inquisition for affirming that the earth was a sphere; the government had declared it to be as flat as a trencher, and Galileo was obliged to abjure his error. ... Reason and experiment have been indulged, and error has fled before them. It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself. ("Notes on the State of Virginia," 1787)I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.If people let government decide which foods they eat and medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.I had fixed a break to be moved by the gate of my sawmill, which broke & beat at the rate of 200. lb. a day. but the inconveniences of interrupting that induced me to try the power of a horse, and I have found it answer perfectly, the power being less, so also probably will be the effect, of which I cannot make a fair trial until I commence on the new crop. I expect that a single horse will do the breaking & beating of 10 men. something of this kind has been so long wanted by the cultivators of hemp , that as soon as I can speak of it's effect with certainty, I shall probably describe it anonymously in the public papers, in order to forestall the prevention of it's use by some interloping patentee. -- Letters, December 29, 1815 (To George Fleming)

Thomas Jefferson Birthday Celebration
This Saturday, The 13th of May, Marks the Occasion of The 5th Annual Thomas Jefferson Birthday Celebration. Come one, come all, to The Stone Shelter of Tower Grove Park in St. Louis Missouri for a Day of Song, Prose and Dance in Honor of the man who, for many, symbolizes The Spirt of American Liberty.That The Government should protect it's citizens from force and fraud and hold no opinions is the gist of his beliefs. Towards That Goal, your Libertarian Party Candidates will address the Celebrationers. The LP Area Groups, The ACLU and St,LouisNORML invite one and all.
