MMM. Russian cities section of city lists. Global Marijuana March.


Hi all,

I have created a Russian cities subsection at:
http://cannabis.wikia.com/wiki/Global_Marijuana_March_2007#Russia

I suggest doing the same on other city lists.

Russia has both European and Asian cities. I think the dividing line is the Ural Mountains? I don't know, and it seems that Russian cities are now all put in the Europe section of some city lists. That is not geographically correct.

And Russia deserves its own section anyway. Just like Canada has its own section so that its cities are not buried in a North America section. See:
http://globalmarijuanamarch.org/2007.php#canada
http://cannabis.wikia.com/wiki/Global_Marijuana_March_2007#Canada

See the 2007 Russian GMM cities map:

Drug War Chronicle. July 13, 2007. Canada: A Majority Favors Marijuana Legalization, But Arrests Are Rising.

Canada: A Majority Favors Marijuana Legalization, But Arrests Are Rising

Even as new polling shows a majority of Canadian adults favors legalizing marijuana and a United Nations survey shows that Canada is one of the most pot-happy countries on the planet, marijuana arrests up north are on the rise. Most observers credit the increase in marijuana arrests to police forces no longer dispirited by the prospect of imminent decriminalization, as appeared to be the case under the former Liberal government.

In an Angus Reid poll conducted in mid-June, 55% of respondents said marijuana should be legalized. And while the Conservative government of Prime Minister Steven Harper has rejected the marijuana decriminalization proposal brought forward by the Liberals when they were in power, only 38% agreed with that policy, with 52% supporting the never-enacted Liberal proposal.

(The poll also found little support for the legalization of any other drugs, with 9% supporting legal heroin, 8% supporting legal cocaine, and 7% for legal methamphetamine. And while a surprisingly high 71% favored mandatory minimum prison sentences for large marijuana grow operators and drug dealers, only 37% favored eliminating harm reduction programs such as needle exchanges and safe injection sites.)

This week, Canadian newspapers ran a spate of stories based on the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime 2007 World Drug Report highlighting high marijuana usage levels in Canada. According to the UN report, Canadians smoke pot at four times the global rate, and, with 16.8% of adults reporting past year usage, Canada has the fifth highest use rate, behind only Zambia (17.7% in 2003), Ghana (21.5% in 1998) and Papua New Guinea and Micronesia, which tied for first place at 29% each in 1995.

The report inspired the National Post to call for a change in the country's marijuana laws in a Wednesday editorial bluntly titled "Legalizing Pot Makes Sense ." After noting that if Canada had alcohol or tobacco use rates four times the world average, the results would be starkly apparent in illness and mortality figures, the Post wondered:

"But where is the health 'footprint' of our love for the weed? Maybe it's hidden in our labor productivity statistics; it certainly doesn't seem to have any impact on our life expectancy or our other measurable health outcomes. Despite dauntingly high ostensible rates of use, and despite the hazards of adulteration and intensification that are attendant upon cannabis's illegal status, we don't seem to be doing ourselves any major harm from a long experiment in comparative weed tolerance.

"This is a strong datum in favor of the view that marijuana is fundamentally innocuous compared with the 'historical' drugs of abuse that enjoy broad social and legal acceptance, and a blow to those who contend that it is a 'gateway' to harder drugs, since there is nothing in the UN data on those drugs to suggest that we are passing through that gate in particularly large numbers. That would seem to leave very little, aside from the omnipresent trade and travel considerations that come from being a neighbor of the US, to stand logically in the way of decriminalization."

But the views of the Post and numerous commissions and parliamentary panels notwithstanding, Canada under the Harper government is not moving in that direction. Instead, the Canadian Press reported Tuesday that arrests for marijuana possession had jumped between 20% and 50% in several major Canadian cities last year. As a result, thousands of Canadians now have criminal records for an offense that just a few years ago was on the verge of extinction.

"Everybody was waiting for what was going to happen... There'd be no use clogging up the court system with that decriminalization bill there. When that was defeated, I'd say it was business as usual," Terry McLaren, president of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police, told The Canadian Press.

"They may charge more people, but they're not deterring youth, they're not putting in funds for education or prevention. The (Tories) have a very regressive policy that's in line with what the US is doing in its so-called war on drugs -- which is a total failure," noted New Democratic Party Member of Parliament Libby Davies.

Another drug policy reformer, attorney and criminology professor Eugene Oscapaella of the Canadian Foundation for Drug Policy noted that regulation and public health education have succeeded in driving down cigarette and alcohol consumption, where prohibition has failed. "Going into the 21st century, we should know better than to bludgeon the use of this drug with criminal law," he said. "It doesn't work, hasn't worked, there's no prospect that it ever will work. Yet we continue to do it."

And Canada will continue to do it as long as the Conservatives hold power. But even a change in governance does not mean substantive marijuana law reform will come to Canada. In the previous Liberal government, although every party except the Conservatives supported the decriminalization proposal, the government failed to bring it to a vote. Somehow, the majority of Canadians who favor legalization need to translate that support into political action.

MMM. Take a Republican to 'Sicko!' Michael Moore


More Republicans than Democrats sabotage efforts for better healthcare of all kinds in the USA.  Please forward widely. Lots of activism happening! See farther down.

Michael Moore has a very popular documentary out now called 'Sicko'. See Google News:
http://news.google.com/news?q=Sicko

And more Republicans than Democrats voted today to block passage of a federal law to stop the DEA from shutting down medical marijuana access in California and the other states that have passed medical marijuana laws. See
http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle_blog/2007/jul/26/detailed_compilation_stats_and_v
And see Google News:

See the Movie, Start the Revolution ...a letter from Michael Moore

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

Friends,

I am overwhelmed by the response to "Sicko." And I'm not just talking about all the wonderful, heart-felt letters you've sent me and the stories you've shared with me about the abuse you've suffered from our health care system.

No, I'm talking about how thousands of you are taking matters into your own hands and using the movie to do something. From Seattle to New England, each day I learn of numerous groups holding meetings or dinners after the movie to discuss it and to plot a course for action. A church in Plano, TX took its weekly bible study group to see "SiCKO." 70 people crammed into a Wisconsin coffee shop's back room. Groups are plotting over pancakes in Illinois and microbrew in Missouri. E-mail addresses are being exchanged in theater lobbies. A Connecticut group is inviting legislators to see "Sicko" and keeping a tally on their website . Local groups have been buying out theaters to have special screenings for their members. Information tables are set up, literature is distributed, action groups are formed.

It's all an amazing sight. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to see the impact a movie can have. For all of you who have written me to ask, "What can I do," well, read more about what others have done, and then try these simple steps:

1. Call or write you member of Congress right now (I'll wait) and tell him or her that you insist they become a co-sponsor of H.R. 676 -- "The United States National Health Insurance Act." It's sponsored currently by Rep. John Conyers and 76 other members of Congress. Insist that your congressperson be one of those co-sponsors. I want to see 100 co-sponsors by Thanksgiving. Will you help make that happen?

2. Call and write to each of the candidates running for President. Tell them you expect them to back H.R. 676, and to take the Senator Brown pledge. Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio refuses to accept his free, government-run health insurance until EVERY American is covered.

3. Organize your own local HealthCare-Now! coalition. You can do it in your own neighborhood. It has to start somewhere. Everyday people have to make this happen. Don't wait for someone else to do this. Ask yourself, "if not me, who?"

4. Call your local media and tell them about your health care horror story. Many papers and TV stations have been running these since "Sicko" arrived in theaters. They like the local angle. Tell them you saw the movie and that there's a "Sicko" story happening right here in (fill in the blank). Tell them you are passing it on to me.

Well, that's a start. Here's what I'm going to do. Because last weekend's "Win a Trip to a Universal Healthcare Country" was so successful (the winner will be announced next week), this weekend we're going to try something different: it's "Take a Republican to 'Sicko!'" C'mon, we all have a conservative in the family! They mean well. It's just that they believe what they've been told about that scary "socialized medicine." Treat them to the movie this weekend and tell them to send me their ticket stub and entry form. I will hold a drawing and the lucky winner will get to have me come to their home and do their laundry -- just like in France! Now, what would make a Republican happier than to see me working away in their laundry room?!

I truly believe that the health care issue is one where we can find some common ground with those who may hold different opinions than us. After all, they're getting the shaft by the same insurance and pharmaceutical companies we are. And sooner or later, they're not going to take it any more, either.

Yours,
Michael Moore

MMM. Republicans vote for DEA attacks on Medical Marijuana patients.



Nearly all Republican House members voted against a federal law to stop the DEA from attacking medical marijuana patients and their access to medical cannabis. See the list of House members below, and vote accordingly. Please forward widely. Make them pay. Make them lose their next election. At the very least expose them as the heartless bastards they are.

Detailed Compilation -- Stats and Voting Lists -- for Tonight's Hinchey Medical Marijuana Vote

The Hinchey results are in, losing by a vote of 165-262. This is only a very slight improvement over last year, when we lost 163-259. I'm disappointed.

On the bright side, at least it increased by two. Suppose we had gotten fewer votes than last year? That would have really sucked.

Here's a summary of the key stats:

  • 165 members of Congress voted for the Hinchey medical marijuana amendment this year (150 of them Democrats), but 262 members of Congress voted against it. Ten members did not have votes recorded (plus Pelosi, for some technical reason as Speaker).
  • 78 Democrats voted against the amendment, while 15 Republicans voted for it.
  • Nine members who voted Yes on the amendment last year switched their votes to No this time (hiss), and three who voted No last year switched to Yes.
  • 27 members of Congress who are either newly-elected or did not have a vote recorded on the Hinchey amendment last year, voted Yes, only one of them Republican.
  • 45 members of Congress who are either newly-elected, or did not vote on the amendment last year, voted No, including 24 Democrats and 21 Republicans.
  • Two members of Congress who voted Yes last year did not vote on the amendment this year, and seven members who voted No last year also didn't vote this year.

I guess a lot of Democrats are spooked about 2008 (but will they ever not be spooked?), and most Republicans are... just Republicans. (Sorry, Republican drug reformers, but those are the numbers. Be proud for at least getting the 15.)

I have one more request to make of our members on this, which is to not get discouraged but to get angry instead. There will be more opportunities to take action, very soon.

Following is a detailed compilation covering all the stats listed above, below the fold (meaning that if you don't already see it, you have to click the Read Full Post link appearing just below, or click through to this post's permanent web page here). Also, check back (maybe tomorrow, definitely by Friday for the Chronicle) for a report on which members of Congress spoke for or against the amendment on the Floor, and what they said. (We know already that Rep. Stephen Cohen, a freshmen Rep. from Tennessee, played a prominent role speaking in favor.)

MMM. Michael Moore offers to wash Republican socks. Sydney Morning Herald, Australia.

Michael Moore offers to wash Republican socks

July 25, 2007


Cleaning up... Michael Moore
Photo: AP


In a bizarre competition, US filmmaker Michael Moore has apparently offered to do the laundry of a Republican voter if he or she will attend a screening of his latest film.

Moore's new documentary, SiCKO, which is an indictment of the US healthcare system, has deeply divided critics in the country.

Nonetheless, just three weeks after it's release, it is one of the top five grossing US documentaries of all time, according to Moore's website.

But that hasn't stopped his marketing and promotions agency Deep Focus from making the unique offer, according to website examiner.com.

"The 'Take a Republican to See SiCKO' contest states:'Can you imagine someone from the government coming to your home to help you with the laundry? Well, they do it in France and if you enter the contest this weekend you will have the chance to win the same treatment for a Republican friend of yours from Michael Moore himself!'," examiner.com reports.

smh.com.au was unable to validate the reports on Moore's own website but in a letter to readers he offers to send a lucky viewer and guest "on a free weekend to the universal health care country of your choice!"

The choices on offer were London, Paris or Toronto, and the trip included "airfare, hotel, meals and, most exciting, a representative from their fine universal health care system who will give you a personal tour".

Director takes Iraq war architects to task in new film, 'No End in Sight'
By Agence France Presse (AFP)

Friday, July 27, 2007


Rob Woollard

Agence France Presse

LOS ANGELES: After a wave of films chronicling the lives of soldiers and civilians on the front lines of the war in Iraq, an award-winning documentary released in the United States this week throws the spotlight on the architects of the conflict for the first time. In " No End in Sight," first-time director Charles Ferguson sets out to explore the management of the war in Iraq in the months following the US-led invasion in March 2003.

Ferguson, a former senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who made a fortune from the $133-million sale of his Internet start-up to Microsoft in 1996, financed the film himself to the tune of $2 million.

With surgical precision, the 52-year-old political scientist's film, which won a special jury prize at the Sundance Independent Film Festival, paints a damning portrait of the planning of post-invasion Iraq, relying on the testimony of more than 70 key figures who were on the ground at the time.

A string of contentious policy decisions - including the disbanding of the Iraqi Army, the de-Baathification of government and the failure to stop the looting - are explored in painstakingly meticulous detail.

The conclusions are withering. As one review of the documentary put it: "Even well-informed audiences will find their jaws dropping."

Ferguson says he wanted to make the film partially as a response to the way the war in Iraq has been reported by mainstream media.

"As a political scientist with many friends in the foreign policy community, I have been quite disturbed at the quality of media coverage of the Iraq war and occupation," says Ferguson.

The recent resurgence of documentary film is increasingly "filling a space that is left somewhat vacant by the traditional media," he says.

"There have certainly been a number of very good books about Iraq, but not many Americans take the six, eight or 10 hours it takes to read a 400-page book," he says.

"And if you don't do that then you certainly can't get a good overall picture of a complicated issue by watching the news or reading a newspaper. That kind of long-form journalism almost doesn't exist any more," he adds.

Ferguson says that while he was familiar with most of the issues surrounding the management of the war, a lot of the anecdotal evidence gleaned from his interviews was revelatory.

"There were many things I learned that blew me away," Ferguson says.

"I knew most of the large-scale facts, but when I learned just how crazy and just how stupid much of the administration's behavior was, I found myself quite dumbfounded," he explains, citing Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) chief Paul Bremer's May 2003 decision to disband the Iraqi Army as a prime example.

Critics and analysts have said the decision was instrumental in fueling the Iraqi insurgency, leaving hundreds of thousands of young Iraqis with military experience unemployed and seething with resentment.

"Bremer made this decision on [CPA defense adviser] Walter Slocombe's recommendation, when neither of them had been to Iraq and Bremer had been on the job for only nine days," says Ferguson.

"What do you say when you learn something like that? And there were many, many things like that, dozens of them."

Ferguson also rejects suggestions that much of the criticism directed at the Bush administration's handling of the war in Iraq has been made with the benefit of hindsight.

"Of course you always have an advantage in hindsight, you cannot deny that is true to some extent," Ferguson says.

"But ... the overwhelming majority of expert opinion before these events was arguing in favor of behaving in a very different way to the way the administration behaved."

While Ferguson's film focuses on the decisions taken in the first year of occupation, the director shies away from offering strategies for the future.

He also questions whether the architects of the war - former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and his deputy Paul Wolfowitz (who both declined to be interviewed for the film) - should be held accountable.

"They are certainly going to be judged very harshly by history, and that's already begun," says Ferguson. "But I hesitate to recommend or propose criminal prosecution for national policy decisions, no matter how disastrous.

"If the decisions were openly made and the American public and Congress knew about them, which they did, I would hesitate to prosecute people for such decisions. But they were horrible decisions."

Asked whether he believed the film had uncovered evidence of impeachable offenses, Ferguson was similarly equivocal.

"Is unbelievable carelessness and stupidity an impeachable offense?" he asks. "I don't know ... I really don't."
