March 7, 2018 Today In Frankfort; Praying for HB 166 !

As I sat here patiently waiting for the Kentucky Legislature to take a vote on HB 166, I was thinking of a way to say,

Gatewood Galbraith – Wikipedia   Galbraith supported the legalization of recreational marijuana use, arguing that the framers of the US Constitution “did not say we have a Constitutional right to possess alcohol. They said we have a Constitutional right to privacy in our homes, under which fits the possession of an extremely poisonous alcohol. Now this is the law in Kentucky today. In fact, it is these rulings that keep the Kentucky State Police from kicking down the doors of people possessing alcohol in Kentucky’s 77 ‘dry’ counties right now and hauling their butts off to jail. Now Marijuana is a demonstrably less harmful substance than alcohol and presents far less of threat to public welfare. So it also fits in a person’s right to privacy in their home. It’s beyond the police power of the state as long as I don’t sell it and it’s for my own personal use.”[10]

Again, I have missed so many names that should be listed here! 

Many people put their own lives on hold to take on Kentucky’s Cannabis battle, whether it be for medicinal, recreational or even palliative care, they all took a stand…and walked all the way to Frankfort to prove it.    Not literally, of course.  I hope they all had a decent ride to get there but surely there were a few old broken down cars in the parking lot as well.  But by the time they all left there yesterday evening it felt as though they had  literally walked those miles.

All different types of people working toward one cause – to get some kind of Cannabis reform into Kentucky!

At the end of the day, the vote for HB 166 was passed over!  A very disappointing outcome for many thousands of Kentuckians who very much needed that Bill to pass! 

How is it possible that legislation so favored by the citizens has not already become law? What is it about this legislation that has Kentucky’s legislators so scared that they are willing to buck the will of the majority of the citizens?
I am of course talking about the legalization of cannabis for medical uses. With 80% favorability and a multitude of benefits arising from the use of cannabis it is confounding to see the Assembly leadership refuse the will of the people and bury all cannabis bills in committee. For what purpose are they doing this?  LINK

When I first started posting to blogs about medical cannabis or “repeal prohibition” it was 2003.  That was 15 years ago.  By the time I became affiliated with the USMjParty it was 2005 and 2010 before I really became involved in any administration of the group.  I always fought for the repeal of prohibition as a whole, but most importantly for Cannabis because yes, I believe Cannabis is a medicine, but first it has to be recognized as a food or ‘herb’ that cannot be controlled by the U.N. or any Government entity!  It is our unalienable right to grow and use the plants that our “Creator” put here on this planet for us! Only commerce can be controlled by our Government, according to the Constitution.  Therefore what we grow on our property or consume in our homes is actually none of the Government’s business!  But they MADE it their business – a long time ago. 

To understand how they accomplished this takeover, you can read the “Elkhorn Manifesto” through this link.  That was the beginning of the downfall of the United States as we see it today.  The U.N. which was formed in 1945 with five founding members including the United States was the beginning of the NWO as we know it today.  The ONDCP and the 1961 Narcotic Convention as well as the 1970 Controlled Substance Act and the DEA instituted by Nixon, as a requirement of the 1970 CSA, as per the U.N., conveniently wrapped up our lives under the control of the NWO.  I wrote about this a couple of years ago and it has a lot of interesting links of information it that article.

The U.N. just issued a statement reminding all signatory Countries to be mindful of their “Treaties” regarding Marijuana.

Be mindful of the fact that it is not just Marijuana that they seek to control.  Control the food and medicine and you will control the people.

We are just now seeing how one world Government will work.  It is reaching into all facets of our lives, some not noticeable yet to the average person, not just whether or not Marijuana is “legal”. 

All of these things together, coupled with the fact that our Legislature has their own agenda for Kentucky influences the outcome of any Cannabis legislation being passed here. 

We still have a couple weeks to see what the outcome will be for the Citizens of Kentucky.  Will the hard work by our dedicated Activists pay off for the Patients who are in such need in our State?  We can only continue to pray and also continue calling


and make sure your voice is heard!

As well, K.C.F.C. and others are gathering in Frankfort to show support.  You can follow them at this LINK.

There is a VERY good article documenting all of the Cannabis Bills in Kentucky this year at Kentucky Free Press.  If you haven’t already done so I encourage you to look at it.

Sally Oh,  who writes for Kentucky Free Press, was LIVE on Facebook on February 25th, explaining Medical Cannabis, States’ Rights & the Civil War  and I encourage you to view that video as well.

Sally Oh KY Free Press

Again, I want to thank everyone that has made an effort of any kind in Kentucky toward the repeal of Cannabis prohibition!  We all basically want the same thing – our patients to be taken care of and the freedom to possess, grow and consume a plant that our Creator blessed us with!

God Bless!

A look at Kentucky Cannabis Activists circa 2009

U.S. Marijuana Party Kentucky

There are a lot of Cannabis Activists fighting the good fight here in the State of Kentucky.  They have been fighting for years – to no avail.  But we never give up!  We will keep fighting until we win!

It started with Gatewood Galbraith, Craig Lee   and many more, some of whom are in this video.  It has continued on through the years with so many people I could not name them all here.  There is a list of Kentucky Activists on both of the Kentucky Marijuana Party’s websites both here and also at It is only a partial listing of all the people who have helped fight this war in Kentucky, but it is dedicated to all of them!

Updates Following Descheduling Press Conference Held On Capitol Hill


So in an attempt to find out what actually took place on the Hill, As I was not actually able to attend or see the actual Press Conference, this is all I was even able to locate in the News or On-line about it. ~

Congressman focuses bright D.C. cannabis spotlight on popular legalization bill

May 18, 2017 by David Hodes 0 Comments

Yesterday, May 17, Virginia Fifth District Congressman Tom Garrett announced more details of his bill, H.R. 1227, “Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017” which he introduced in Congress in February. He updated the crowd of advocates and reporters with more on the hoped-for success of the bill that is going forward now with a host of new co-sponsors.

The bill, which the congressman says is similar to a bill by Senator Bernie Sanders that floated around briefly in Congress in 2015 (some say there is no real difference between Garrett’s bill and Sander’s bill), seeks to specifically remove marijuana and tetrahydrocannabinoids from the federal schedule of controlled substances and leave regulation up to the individual states. “Senator Sanders had an identical bill,” Garrett says. “I know that because my legislative staff poached the bill. All we really changed was the spelling of marijuana. His bill spelled it ‘marihuana,’” Garrett says.

Garrett’s bill enjoys wider bipartisan support today than when introduced, now co-sponsored by seven Democrats and four Republicans, including the original two sponsors: Democrat representative from Hawaii, Tulsi Gabbard; and Republican representative from Virginia, Scott Taylor. Four new co-sponsors have joined just since the beginning of April.

Garrett chose this day because two marijuana events garnering national attention were occurring simultaneously in D.C.: lobby days by the National Cannabis Industry Association, and the Marijuana Business conference at National Harbor. This is a big week for cannabis in D.C., and Garrett wanted to make sure that his bill got some of the spotlight. “This is a very, very important initiative,” Garrett says. “This is the federal deregulation of marijuana. This is not decriminalization.”

Garrett was a criminal prosecutor in Virginia, and said his views were shaped by that experience. “I enforced the laws of the Commonwealth,” he says. “But I cannot tolerate, either as a citizen and a prosecutor, the unequal application of justice.”

He said that he believes that when a person is sent to Washington to represent constituents, and identify a problem, steps should be taken to solve the problem. “That is why we stand here today,” he says. “What we see here early on is a sort of personal liberty coalition that defies party identification, which I think is nice for a change.”

He says that what drove him to champion this bill is the issue of law enforcement. “We now have a situation where federal laws are enforced in some states and not enforced in other states,” Garrett says. “It’s unconscionable. I fear that my colleagues in Congress have been so afraid to point out the 800 pound gorilla in the room that we have all engaged in a conversation about how lovely the emperor’s clothes are. But the reality is we live in the unequal application of the law.”

He says that he is working with the committee of jurisdiction for his bill, which is the judiciary committee. Their subcommittee will be the first test of the bill. “If we hit critical mass in that subcommittee, and ask for a vote in the subcommittee, then do the same thing in the full committee and get a critical mass there, then get the bill out to the floor, I think it will pass. And it will pass with a bipartisan majority,” he says. “Right now it’s strategic as to when we try to push it. And we want to know we have the votes before we do it.”

Appearing with Garrett were mothers of two children who suffer from epilepsy, and have to break federal law to get CBD oil to treat their children. “This is the issue I got into politics for,” Garrett says, pointing to the two mothers. “You can write a bill, you can lobby a bill, but you can’t hug a bill. Doing the right thing is why I do this. And if it costs me politically, than I will go out knowing that I have been true to myself. It’s a pretty good gig.”

My Response ~

Again, I want to take this opportunity to say a BIG THANK YOU!!! To Mr. Garrett, To ALL our OFFICIALS, as well as, To ALL those involved. To ALL who have STEPPED UP!!! On behalf of our Nation and our Globe; with this Very Powerful Initiative set fourth to place an End to this part of the War on Freedom, Health, Nature and at least this part of the Globe.

Dear Mr. Hodes

I Thank You! For “your” being what seems to be, “the only one” individual or any one source of information, news or media. From what I can find, who even tried to update anyone about the actual Information or News of what went on at the actual Press Conference it’s self.

I found this to be very interesting in it’s self. While when I looked at what you had to actually say about it all and was really kinda Not surprised that you reported it in a Misleading or almost Fake News fashion.

I mean I will “quote” you ~ “seeks to specifically remove ” from above, to show you why and where you error or mislead, to make my point here.

Quoting you again, quoting Mr. Garrett,

This is a very, very important initiative,” Garrett says. “This is the federal deregulation of marijuana. This is not decriminalization.

Even though you quote him on all this, you then use the word “Legalization” to describe it all in your title!???

WTF are you NOT understanding about the “distinction” being made here???

Let’s see if I can help you and others…

This is a Bill calling for a “Congressional Act” of Legislation of an actual Act of “Repeal” = “Deregulation” = To “Specifically Remove” Previous Bad or Outdated Congressional Acts of Regulation or Legislation. = NOT “Legalization” at all!

Legalization is a set of Legal Lies = words, terms or rules = Lies, disguised to look and sound like decriminalization, which in actuality really only leads to more legislation and more regulation and thus more criminalization…. = A very vicious fraudulent cycle of abuse of authority! That no one in the understanding or “know” of the Linguistics of Law, will ever buy!!!

Please, understand the Legal definitions of the words, terms, the semantics and the Legal Process Being Taken before attempting to explain it to others. Thank You! Because there are too many Legal Lies = Legalize in this War on People and Plants = NOT “Drugs” at all!

Congress OKs Medical Marijuana for Military Veterans

The U.S. Senate and House of Representatives both took action to increase military veterans’ access to medical marijuana on Thursday.

By a vote of 89-8, senators approved a bill containing language preventing the Department of Veterans Affairs (V.A.) from spending money to enforce a current policy that prohibits its government doctors from filling out medical marijuana recommendation forms in states where the drug is legal.

The House approved an amendment to accomplish the same goal by a vote of 233-189 earlier in the day.

“We are pleased that both the House and Senate have made it clear that the Veterans Administration should not punish doctors for recommending medical cannabis to their veteran patients,” Mike Liszewski, government affairs director for Americans for Safe Access (ASA), told “Combat veterans are disproportionately affected by several conditions that medical cannabis can effectively treat, including chronic pain, PTSD and traumatic brain injury. We anticipate this amendment will reach the president, and once signed, it will give V.A. physicians another tool in their toolbox to treat the healthcare needs of America’s veterans.”

The provisions are now part of a larger bills to fund the V.A. and other government agencies through next year. The medical cannabis language was attached to the Senate legislation last month in bipartisan vote of 20-10 in the Appropriations Committee, and did not require a separate vote on the floor.

Last year the Senate approved the Fiscal Year 2016 version of the V.A. spending bill, with similar medical cannabis protections for veterans attached, but the House narrowly defeated a move to add the amendment to its version of the legislation by a vote of 213-210. As a result, the provision was not included in the final omnibus appropriations package signed into law by President Obama in December.

Since then, momentum on medical cannabis and broader marijuana law reform issues has continued to increase. Last month, for example, Pennsylvania became the 24th state in the U.S with a comprehensive medical marijuana program. This month the Ohio House of Representatives approved medical cannabis and, on Thursday, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) signed a medical marijuana bill into law.

U.S. House and Senate negotiators will meet in a conference committee to iron out the discrepancies in funding levels and other differing provisions between each chamber’s version of the spending legislation. But since both now include medical marijuana protections for veterans, it is likely that they will make it into the final package sent to President Obama for enactment into law.

“I commend my colleagues for showing compassion and supporting our wounded warriors,” Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), who sponsored the amendment on the House floor, said in a press release. “Today’s vote is a win for these men and women who have done so much for us and deserve equal treatment in being able to consult with, and seek a recommendation from, their personal V.A. physician about medical marijuana.”

The V.A. policy disallowing its doctors from recommending medical marijuana in states where it is legal actually expired on January 31 but, under the department’s procedures, the ban technically remains in effect until a new policy is enacted.

Advocates expect a new policy soon, but aren’t sure what it will say. In February 2015, a top V.A. official testified before a House committee that the department is undertaking “active discussions” about how to address the growing number of veterans who are seeking cannabis treatments.

The language of the House and Senate veterans medical marijuana protections differ somewhat.

The Senate bill reads:

None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made available to the Department of Veterans Affairs in this Act may be used in a manner that would—

(1) interfere with the ability of a veteran to participate in a medicinal marijuana program approved by a State;

(2) deny any services from the Department to a veteran who is participating in such a program; or

(3) limit or interfere with the ability of a health care provider of the Department to make appropriate recommendations, fill out forms, or take steps to comply with such a program.

Whereas the House bill says:

None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to implement, administer, or enforce Veterans Health Administration directive 2011-004 (or directive of the same substance) with respect to the prohibition on “VA providers from completing forms seeking recommendations or opinions regarding a Veteran’s participation in a State marijuana program”.

While the Senate language seems more all-encompassing, advocates believe that whichever approach is included in the final enacted legislation will be sufficient to give veterans greatly expanded access to medical cannabis.
“The Senate language clearly states that interference is forbidden conduct, while the House language prohibits the V.A. from adopting or enforcing rules to interfere,” Liszewski, of ASA, said in an interview. “Once signed by the president, we look forward to working with the Veterans Administration to make sure that V.A. physicians are aware of their ability to recommend medical cannabis to veterans who could benefit from it.”

A trio of Democratic senators submitted an additional amendment this week intended to spur medical cannabis research by the V.A., but it did not receive a vote on the Senate floor.

Attention now turns to separate Congressional appropriations bills that fund other parts of the government, most importantly legislation that covers the Justice Department. For the past two years, advocates have succeeded in attaching language to the bill preventing the Drug Enforcement Administration and other Justice Department agencies from spending money to interfere with state medical marijuana and industrial hemp laws. A move to broaden the protections to cover all state marijuana laws, including full legalization, narrowly failed on the House floor last year but could now have enough increased support to pass if voted on again.

Advocates will also continue pushing to add protections for banks that work with legal marijuana businesses to legislation covering the Treasury Department. And, there could be votes concerning the District of Columbia’s ability to spend its own money taxing and regulating marijuana sales.

“This is an historic moment and further proof there is real movement and bipartisan support in reforming outdated federal marijuana policies,” said Blumenauer, of the victory for veterans. “There is more to be done, and I will build on today’s momentum and continue my efforts in catching federal policy up to reflect the views held by a majority of Americans.”

On Capital Hill, Congress Meets to Discuss the of End Marihuana Canna (image via Prohibition

Today, a press conference will be held by members of Congress from both parties highlighting the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017, HR 1227, introduced by Representatives Thomas Garrett (R-VA) and Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI).

H.R. 1227 seeks specifically to remove marijuana and tetrahydrocannabinols from the federal schedule of controlled substances, thereby leaving regulation up to the states.

Details for the press conference are as follows:

What: Press Conference on H.R. 1227 to highlight the necessity for federal deregulation of marijuana
When: May 17, 2017 from 2:00-2:45 PM
Where: House Triangle, just outside the U.S. Capitol (back-up rain location Cannon HOB 340)
Speakers: U.S. Congressman Tom Garrett; tentative confirmation from U.S. Congressman Scott Taylor and several other bipartisan members of Congress that have cosponsored this legislation; also in attendance will be representatives from NORML and other advocacy organizations from across the country.

Justin Strekal, Political Director for NORML, released the following statement:

“Never in modern history has there existed greater public support for ending the nation’s nearly century-long experiment with marijuana prohibition and replacing it with regulation. The historic votes on Election Day — when a majority of voters in California, Massachusetts, Maine, and Nevada decided at the ballot box to regulate the adult use of marijuana, and several other states passed medical marijuana legalization laws — underscore this political reality.”

“The ongoing enforcement of marijuana prohibition financially burdens taxpayers, encroaches upon civil liberties, engenders disrespect for the law, impedes legitimate scientific research into the plant’s medicinal properties, and disproportionately impacts communities of color.”

“According to recently released nationwide survey data from Quinnipiac University, the majority of Americans support the repeal of federal marijuana prohibition. Fifty-nine percent of voters say that the adult use of marijuana should be legal while a whopping 93 percent support the medical use of marijuana. Perhaps most importantly, 71 percent of voters — including strong majorities of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents — say that they “oppose the government enforcing federal laws against marijuana in states that have already legalized medical or recreational marijuana.”

In a February 27 press release introducing the bill, Congressman Thomas Garrett (R-VA) stated:

“I have long believed justice that isn’t blind, isn’t justice. Statistics indicate that minor narcotics crimes disproportionately hurt areas of lower socio-economic status and what I find most troubling is that we continue to keep laws on the books that we do not enforce. Virginia is more than capable of handling its own marijuana policy, as are states such as Colorado or California.”

In a March 21 statement on the floor of the House Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) stated:

“Our outdated policies on marijuana are having devastating ripple effects on individuals and communities across the country. They have turned everyday Americans into criminals, torn apart families, and wasted huge amounts of taxpayer dollars to arrest, prosecute, and incarcerate people for non-violent marijuana charges. Differences in state and federal law have also created confusion and uncertainty for our local businesses, who face contradictory regulations that affect their bottom line and ability to operate. I urge our colleagues to support our bipartisan legislation which would decriminalize marijuana, bringing about long overdue and common sense reform.”


NORML’s mission is to move public opinion sufficiently to legalize the responsible use of marijuana by adults, and to serve as an advocate for consumers to assure they have access to high quality marijuana that is safe, convenient and affordable.

From Mary Thomas-Spears aka Rev. Mary ~ Another Good Question?

A Constitutional Amendment is the only end that I can see to End Prohibition of Personal Use and to Restore our rights and freedoms where our personal use is concerned because what Mr. Thorne Peters is overlooking is ~ We Have No Real Rights or Freedoms Currently due to our Contracting them away through the IRS and S.S. via the Market Place – in Incorporation = making ourselves their Property = “Dead” = “Stock” = Why? the Judge wears Black! = Bench is Latin for Bank = with The Corporate World Bank = in with an extension of the Corporate World Government = which is an extension or the Corps(e) or dead body of the Corporate World Church = the all seeing eye on the top of the pyramid only separated through their Tax Exempt Status


Due to so many reasons, like the Verona Treaty and the Lieber Code to name just a couple of them.


Lieber Code

Not to mention, His = Thorne Peters CASE would have to be on the U.S. Supreme Court to make any real difference = he lost or it was rejected on the lower state levels.

Yes! I have already proved #NoMensRea in Court but I had to Plead Guilty to Introduce the evidence that I had no guilt in a “Lessor of Evils” defense which it took me 8 yrs at the State level in a Commonwealth to do and that didn’t keep it or me off their paper or out of their system or help me go on to a Higher Court…

Not to Mention, each case is different according to the Charges they have brought against you, as they Do have All Authority over the Market Place, Currency and Foreign War including Synthetic ones they’ve created = their property = Prohibition or the Drug War – that they have divided with their Prohibition to create new Venues and drive prices while Controlling the ALL the numbers! With-in the Market Place.

As I have already said, because of these reasons and many others, he is misleading the masses in my opinion.

Although I have said there is another Solution in the About Section of the Page everyone joins but no-one reads or takes Seriously ~…/

From Omnipotence Sui Juris (who in fact Documents for you what I just explained to you above)

As far as I can find written in English Law, once you apart of the group your at the groups mercy, a fee-simple citizen has to deal with the land trust companies charter and constitutions, the most specific is usually written like in Canada Sec 1 of the Charter, 1. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society. this reasonable limits is the catch 22, since the group can make anything legal for the group yet anyone not apart of that group it does not apply to and the charter does not apply as a remedy for those not in the subject matter jurisdiction, being a municipal corporation with a use under statute King William the 1st , called de donis, the only area of law that deals with the removal of the subject matter jurisdiction is estates in reversion for the donor to get “Life Estate” back that was granted at birth by the parents, everything else is corp law for the protectors of the lands as stated in Magna Charta chapter 4 , the countries are land trust companies as stated in Law of Property 1925, the ancient statutes deal with the reversion process that is not apart of the land trust company, these are the statutes written by the Donee the individual each fee-simple subject grants the estate to, the monarchy created a system that the individuals with a use can control the equitable waste and nothing else, being equity is fiction and only applies to those that agree to the value of that object of exchange for all in its group,

From Mary Thomas-Spears ~ TY! to “Omnipotence Sui Juris”, For your time here! Abundant Blessings! ❤

So let me see if I am understanding you correctly? YOU DO CONCUR! & It is like
I said above and in this post below here to my Diverse Sanctuary's Canadian Lodge page. Unless You Redeem Yourself via The Remedy. ~

Another GOOD QUESTION???? Here in the States ~ Oh, By the Way – If you haven’t been Paying Attention ~ Canada’s Government is also an incorporation of Corporate Government of the Established World Corporate Church’s Corps(e) or “Body” or of “the people” ~

From Omnipotence Sui Juris ~ Everything since 1066 and the start of the current English Law and Jurisdiction is based on “livery by seisin“, and is apart of the livery companies and the lord spiritual and temporal, this translates into every law, faith, belief and morals of every individual is no longer there own, since this group started in 1066 and was forced for many hundreds of years unless you understood law of reversion. Everything everyone believes that is law, is Law of Equity it is not natural law, or the law of your god, an english subject that has a faith and proclaims it will be bound threw equity to that faith; unless you choose nature, true freedom and reversion and take back your Life Estate in the recognized and written manner as it states in the ancient statutes etc. Then after you are free you can choose what ever you want for laws for your group, since you would need acceptance from anyone not in your group. This deals with the main foundation on what majority believe law and jurisdiction to be , Common Law is Equity Law and Fee-simple, and was apart of common law before King William the 1st enacted into legislation by statute de donis. English Law likes to write things to allow the reader to assume things, unless they are diligent enough to learn the law as a whole and how it works and to whom it applies to and why. I have not found 1 individual that can prove to me what law and subject matter really is , as in written by a recognized law scholar, yet I have this information in many books written by top scholars and it is not only being ignored, seems everyone is fighting subject matter jurisdiction yet don’t know what it is, how it is achieved and what the remedy is, if you do not have these 3 all together English Law will not recognize it.

To sum it up, most have no clue because they choose to read others material that is not recognized, and have never read any Real Law Books, I don’t want anyone to keep asking me questions over and over, the answers everyone seeks are in the documents that I share, I can not discuss an area of law if no one will read it and no one knows it exists and contradicts all the law everyone else thinks is law. When its the law for the group and not the way out.

Omnipotence Sui Juris ~ The Principles of Real Property

From a FB Re-Post or Share
Omnipotence Sui Juris
Yesterday at 1:44am ·

No Jurisdiction (Territory) can take your absolute rights, so they created hereditaments and attached EVERYTHING including your rights to the lands. When one grants a Life Estate the life estate gets split into 2 pieces, REAL and Personal.

The individual(donor) that grants a life Estate only has a use and is called fee-simple, this is attached to the lands(hereditaments).

The real is the land and all the natural resources attached including hereditaments.

Personal is Equity, the individual in fee-simple only has the equitable use of things, you do not own it you can only prosper equity threw its use.

This NEW capacity bars the individual from the REAL Property and only has access the the equitable waste the individual can create and nothing more.

The civil individual can remove the life estate followed by the statutes that created the life estate.


OF REAL PROPERTY; and first, of CORPOREAL [ 16 ]

The objects of dominion or property are things, as contradistinguished from persons : and things are by the law of. England distributed into two kinds; things real, and personal. things personal. Things real are such as are permanent, fixed, and immoveable, which cannot be carried out of their place ; as lands and tenements : things personal are goods, money, and all other moveables; which may attend the owner’s person wherever he thinks proper to go.

In treating of things real, the subject of the present work, let us consider, first, their several sorts or kinds ; secondly, the tenures by which they may be holden ; thirdly, the estates which may be had in them ; and, fourthly, the title to them, and the manner of acquiring and losing it.

First, with regard to their several sorts or kinds, things Things real real are usually said to consist in lands, tenements, or hereditaments. Land comprehends all things of a permanent, substantial nature ; being a word of a very extensive signification, as will presently appear more at large. Tenement is a word of still greater extent, and though in its vulgar acceptation is only applied to houses and other buildings, yet in its original, proper, and legal sense, it [ 17 ] signifies every thing that may be holden, provided it be of a permanent nature ; whether it be of a substantial and sensible^ or of an unsubstantial ideal kind. Thus liberum tenementum, franktenement, or freehold, is applicable not only to lands and other solid objects, but also to offices, rents, commons, and the like;^ and, as lands and houses are tenements, so is an advowson a tenement ; and a franchise, an office, a right of common, a peerage, or other property of the like unsubstantial kind, are, all of them, legally speaking, tenements. But an hereditament, says Sir Edward Coke, is by much the largest and most comprehensive expression : for it includes not only lands and tenements, but whatsoever may be inherited, be it corporeal, or incorporeal, real, personal, or mixed. Thus an heir-loom, or implement of furniture which by custom descends to the heir together with an house, is neither land, nor tenement, but a mere moveable : yet, being in- heritable, is comprised under the general word hereditament: and so a condition, the benefit of which may descend to a man from his ancestor, is also an hereditament.

Hereditaments then, to use the largest expression, are of two kinds, corporeal and incorporeal. Corporeal consist of such as affect the senses ; such as may be seen and handled by the body : incorporeal are not the object of sensation, can neither be seen nor handled, are creatures of the mind, and exist only in contemplation.

Corporeal hereditaments consist wholly of substantial permanent objects ; all which may be comprehended consist. under the general denomination of land only. For landy says Sir Edward Coke, comprehendeth in its legal signification any ground, soil, or earth whatsoever ; as arable, meadows, pastures, woods, moors, waters, marshes, furzes, and heath. It legally includeth also all castles, houses, and other buildings : for they consist, saith he, of two things ; Land ; its land, which is the foundation, and structure thereupon : SO that, if I convey the land or ground, the structure or building passeth therewith. It is observable that water is here mentioned as a species of land,

An incorporeal hereditament is a Right issuing: out of a thing Corporate (whether real or personal) or concerning, or annexed to, or exercisible within, the same.^ It is not the thing corporate itself, which may consist in lands, houses, jewels, or the like ; but something collateral thereto, as a rent issuing out of those lands or houses, or an office relating to those jewels.

Incorporeal hereditaments are principally of ten sorts ; Of ten sorts, advowsons, tithes, commons, ways, offices, dignities, franchises, corodies or pensions, annuities, and rents


The foregoing books having been principally employed in defining the nature of things real, in describing the tenures by which they may be holden, and in distinguishing the several kinds oi estate or interest that may be had therein; I come now to consider, lastly, the title to things real, with the manner of acquiring and losing it.

A title is thus defined by Sir Edward Coke,* titulus est Dettnition of jmta causa possidendi id quod nostrum est; or, it is the * means whereby the owner of lands hath the just possession of his property.

There are several stages or degrees requisite to form a
complete title to lands and tenements. We will consider
them in a progressive order.

The lowest and most imperfect degree of title consists in the mere naked possession, or actual occupation of the estate; without any apparent right, or any shadow or pretence of right, to hold and continue such possession. This may happen, when one man invades the possession of another, and by force or surprise turns him out of the occupation of his lands; which is termed a disseisin, being a deprivation of the actual seisin.

The next step to a good and perfect title is the right of possession, which may reside in one man, while the actual possession is not in himself but in another. For if a man be disseised, or otherwise kept out of possession, by any of the means before-mentioned, though the actual possession be lost, yet he has still remaining in him the right of possession ; and may exert it whenever he think proper, by entering upon the disseisor, and turning him out of that occupancy which he has so illegally gained. But this right of possession is of two sorts : an apparent right of possession, which may be defeated by proving a better; and an actual right of possession, which will stand the test against all opponents.

The Most Important Lesson in Understanding How You are Screwed by the Words

Thorne Peters and his 4/20 “Potcastathon”


I was very much looking forward to a three hour 4/20 show with Thorne Peters on Facebook.

It was going to be about the use of “No Men’s Rae” when pleading a Marijuana case,  and was featuring several guests along with Mary Thomas-Spears of Kentucky for Cannabis who was offering a different view on the use of this plea in a Court of Law, which apparently Mr. Peters did not wish to hear.  However, he DID invite her to his show for her to give her point of view and I knew it would be a good debate … or at least I thought it would be… 

There has been a much heated environment of late concerning “No Men’s Rae”, particularly on Facebook where both Thorne Peters and Mary Thomas Spears reside.  Both are long time Activists.  Mr. Peters is from Tennessee and Ms. Spears, is a long time Kentucky resident.  Both have had a number of legal cases involving Cannabis/Marijuana and are no strangers to the Legal System. 

RELATED:  Is No Men’s Rae “The plea to SET US FREE” ?

I, as well, received an invitation from him.  I am assuming because I wrote the article concerning “No Men’s Rae” about  a week ago.

I invite you onto my 4/20 LIVE POTCAST to call in and talk about activism. I will be on from 4:20 pm ET til 4:20 pm PT 3 hours LIVE!

Thu 1:52pm

Psycho Mary will be calling in.

I replied later that day,

Thu 5:05pm

Need a call in #…. Isn’t Mary supposed to be on the show? At what time? Im listening!!!

Chat Conversation End

I knew as soon as I saw that message from him, and the way he referred to Ms. Spears, that it probably wasn’t going to be a fair debate, but thought maybe that was just his way of being “funny”.

Ms. Spears also speaks slowly and has a very deliberate voice, explaining details as she goes, and tries very hard to tell it in a way that everyone will understand.   When someone deliberately tries to talk over the top of her in a conversation, as he did, she can get very annoyed, understandably.  He purposefully spoke above her and never gave her a chance to fully explain herself, and as well actually made  “fun” of her during the “conversation”, (if you could even call it a conversation).  He had previously during the show used an automated voice of her commenting about “No Men’s Rae”, to which she had no chance to respond.  (Please review video starting at @1:55).

Oh and I finally listened to his broadcast and he sounds like he studied one of my broadcast nearly repeats everything I said only in stead of screaming repeal he is screaming no Mens Rea (Rev. Mary)


No automatic alt text available.


It suffices to say that I believe that there is no place for this kind of badgering between Activists.  There are a lot of us, we all have differing opinions on a lot of things.  We should not be harassed when being spoken to especially in a public conversation. 

When looking at the comments displayed under the video it seems there where a few with a differing opinion of No Men’s Rae and a few others which were not happy with the way Ms. Spears was treated while a “guest” on his show.

I was very disappointed and I feel it puts a cloud over the issue when a “Host” acts as Mr. Peters did on his show.  Everybody center’s on the ongoing “entertainment” instead of the real issue – the Justice System in this Country.  But then entertainment invites listeners and gets people talking and I’m thinking maybe that was what he was trying to do – use her for entertainment purposes?  I hope that he thinks before being this disrespectful to anyone again!

We will be watching when “No Mens Rae” goes to Court in July!

And yes, I still wish him much luck in his endeavors!

As well, I have much respect for Rev. Mary Thomas-Spears and her opinion.  I have seen years of Activism and teaching as well as actual Court Cases in the  Justice System which she has endured.  She has spent years learning from Activists such as Jack Herer, Gatewood Galbraith,  Ron Kiczenski, Joseph Zoretic as well as educating  Cannabis Activists, including myself, and I have never had her tell me anything that did not prove to be true.

I trust her judgement.

The following is a few excerpts from Facebook Messenger conversations:

Rev. Mary:  His Attack Began on the Comments he left on post on my wall he then starts contacting people on my list I guess to attack me personally… Because then I get this from Jeri Rose…

Jeri Rose:  just got this PM from that man (Thorne Peters), trying Mens R Here is what he wrote: She identifies herself as a psychic. If her victory had any merit, I would not be facing CANNABIS charges and no one else would be arrested…I will accomplish that on July 31, 2017. 750k getting arrested every year, only a brain dead sheeple would declare a legal victory. Getting your own ass off the hook with a begging plea for mercy does none of us any good. Follow the law. NO MENS REA.

Rev. Mary:  At which point I think… Really????That’s what your going to do??? Make personal attacks to my character like a government agent or psych-ops?

Thorne Peters (to Rev. Mary):
I will be reading your take on NO MENS REA from your group post on my LIVE @ 4:20 pm CT POTCAST as a shining example of how even intelligent people can be led astray by flock mentality. Perhaps you should listen to the facts from a court of law. If your position on MENS REA is true, then how come Negroes didn’t follow the laws against them? …

Mary Thomas-Spears:
You are singing to the choir here but your also wrong in your approach
Apr 11
Mary Thomas-Spears:
@Thorne Peters Yes! I know! I already proved that in court = pot is Legal already!
Years ago as you can see by the above!
Problem is, it is still Prohibited by an Unconstitutional CSA!
And you are wrong about how your going about it!
Because of your being out of order…
Order is very important!
I say this to you as someone who has been there and who has been through more from experience in an attempt to help.
Please try to understand that you are contradicting yourself
And they will use it to their advantage because it is what they do
Hear ???

Thorne Peters:
I invite you onto my 4/20 LIVE POTCAST to call in and explain your position. I will be on from 4:20 pm ET til 4:20 pm PT 3 hours LIVE! Call in and set me straight if you are up for it.
Today at 12:11am · Sent from Web

Thorne Peters:
My 35 years as a strip club dj has trained me to win over all audiences . . . my charming wit is undeniable. My deviant style pales in comparison to the evil inflicted by the DA. I am following the law. EWE THE SHEEPLE and The Ministerz of Injustice seek to redefine the law by ignoring the fact there is NO MENS REA for POTHEADZ. You proved NOTHING, because people are still busted for POT After my case the jig is up.

ok good luck with your slide show in Court

Mary Thomas-Spears:  Still don’t have a number and I am being told by everyone around me not to lend my name to any more of your BS just so you know!


I received this message from Rev. Mary:

About my calling myself a psychic…
See these posts here

I don’t have to be psychic to know his games will not work in their Courts because that is their Game!

Just saying… When he hadn’t read the transcripts from Any Of My Cases or Others Whom I have Advocated on behalf of…. He is Clueless as to how I addressed any thing or What We Proved!!!

and it was all recorded as well by voice recorders and video…

So like I said, he is only helping him and tooting his own horn and really he is just tooting his own horn and helping himself to a jail cell in my humble opinion!




Is there an ecumenically-based religious creed common to a significant number of cannabis-based theologies?





By Chris Conrad / ORIGINAL HERE / (posted approx. 9 years ago)

Cantheism Note: This treatise is not intended to advocate the breaking of any law. An academic treatise by Chris Conrad, which addresses the question: Is there an ecumenically-based religious creed common to a significant number of cannabis-based theologies, that can be articulated and offered as a formal petition to Congress for redress of grievances to protect religious use of cannabis under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America?

We hold that a universal set of principles and practices does exist that meets the above qualifications. Based on the following principles, do assert that adherence to the religious use of marijuana should be recognized and protected under the First Amendment and provided equal protection of the law under the 14th Amendment. We invite your comments and suggestions. — Definitions: Cantheism (1997), derived from Kantheism (1996 fr. Greek: kannabis + theism). A mystical religion based on the inherent goodness of the Cannabis plant. Adherents: Cantheists, Cannabists

Cantheist Creed I believe that Cannabis sativa, L. is the useful cane and the true hemp. I believe that Cannabis Hemp is a restorative natural resource for all humanity to grow, share, and use for our fundamental needs.
Therefore, I shall honor its existance. I believe that the Cannabis plant is endowed with important healing powers, some of which cannot yet be explained.
Therefore I shall offer it to ease the suffering of others. I recognize cannabis as a sacrament within my community. Therefore I shall receive it with thanksgiving and deep respect for its resinous powers. The cultivation and disemination of cannabis are honorable professions. Therefore I shall act with absolute integrity and honesty* to protect the Cantheist community and its values. * Note: The Christian Bible states that “the truth shall set ye free” and “render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s”, therefore a Cantheist cannot lie or perjur themselves in a court of law because it violates both “the truth” and “the things that are Caesar’s”, namely the courts. Cantheology: Philosophical roots Cantheism neither endorses nor discriminates against any other church, faith, or system of belief. Anyone may incorporate Cantheism into their current religious persuasion, so long as they adhere to the Creed. Many of the world’s great religions have used Cannabis sacramentally and ceremonially, including but not limited to: Animism: Belief that all things have sentient spirits, and some versions assert that Cannabis has the power to cross the line between the mental and the spiritual worlds. Popular in Africa and pre-Columbian America. See the parable of the rope, below. Biblical Judeo-Christian-Moslem religions, including Coptic Christianity and Rastafari: Genesis 1:29-31; Ezekiel 34:29; Isaiah 18:4-5; Rev. 22:1-2. Sacred spliff. Egyptians: Smoke Eaters at the Temple at Thebes, incense, mortality rituals. Hinduism: Sadhu, ganja, chillum, spiritual and physical healing, smoking cloth. Includes the mystical interpretation of Cannabis healing powers via Ayurvedic practices. Pygmy and other African religions: Mound smokers, animism, the spirit of plants and nature, the breath of the gods. Scythianism: Smoking huts, hemp labor, cannabis purification rituals. Shamanism: Use of all herbs in mystical pursuit of the infinite. Sufi Moslems: Use cannabis to reach an ecstatic state. Zoroastrianism: Use cannabis to communicate with god on high for mystical consciousness and personal enlightenment. Cannabis Hemp: The rope that linked mankind to God African creation myths explain why God, who once lived close to humankind, has removed himself from their world.  Most of these myths describe a golden age when there was no separation between humans and their creator.  However, something occurred to alienate God.  The Mende say that God withdrew into the heavens because humans continually begged benefits from him.  Ashanti mythology tells of God’s retreat into the heavens after a woman hit him with her pestle while pounding traditional food.  Myths from the upper White Nile area speak of the relationship between God and man being severed when a rope between heaven and earth was accidentally cut (Mbiti, John S. 1969. African Religions and Philosophy. London: Heinemann, p 97; Mitchell, Robert Cameron. 1977. African Primal Religions. Niles, IL: Argus Communications. p, 25).   Cantheist Rites, Rituals and Ceremonies Observance of Cantheist rites are beneficial but not mandatory. The extent of one’s participation is a measure of the depth of one’s devotion. Practice cannabism, the regular consumption of cannabis. Make oblation with the hempseed, and sow it everywhere. Offer thanksgiving and blessing for cannabis when you partake. Share the holy smoke among the faithful. Use a hempen prayer cloth to inhale through when sharing the holy smoke among the community. First passage of cannabis at age 16: Parents may choose to offer cannabis, child may pass on this opportunity. Age of personal consent at 18: Adult steps forward and accepts Cantheism and shares in the sacrament. Summer solstice: Bonfire jumping. Undertake cannabinges, periods of intense consumption of cannabis. Freedom pilgrimage: Take the sacrament in a land that it is free from oppression at least once in your life, and remember the years of persecution.

Cantheist Symbology The graphic symbol for Cantheism is modeled after the ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for hemp rope, which was transformed into the letter “h”. Illustration: Detail from an Egyptian stella (1780-1306 BC), Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Firenze (Italy) Room III, case 14, Item 7611 The hand symbol for Cantheism is right hand cupped around the left, with two fingers extended in the inner hand, symbolizing the male and the female plants. The overall hand gesture signifying the female calyx which holds the trichome glands. Astronomy: The three stars of Orion’s belt represent the three aspects of cannabis: Commerce, medicine, and spirit. Sirius, the brightest star in the nearby constellation Canis Major (Big Dog) symbolizes cannabis in the Northern winter sky. Cantheist Code I will share my faith, but not be obnoxious about it. We pray for our oppressors, and work for a better world.
