0:07 - Colorado, press release May 20th:
MPP/DPA/Sensible-Safer Colorado file 8 different versions of the same ballot initiative which will undermine current Colorado legal victories, will turn over control of medical cannabis program to law enforcement. Debate on proposed 2012 initiatives was scheduled for June, these filings took everyone by surprise. "Even the legislature gave us more notice to comment on pending legislation than they did."

0:20 - Why does MPP/DPA/Sensible-Safer Colorado want to take the Medical Marijuana Colorado (MMC) program out from under the Department of Health and put it under the Department of Revenue? The Department of Revenue has been hostile and obstructionist to the MMC program from the beginnning. MPP/DPA/etc. initiative makes driving under the influence of marijuana a constitutional crime. Adds a 15% sin tax on MEDICAL marijuana. MPP/DPA has persued a strategy of dividing and ignoring the grass-roots community nationwide for many years now.

0:28 - The strategy to divide the grass-roots is intentional. Colorado activists are shocked by the refusal of these organizations to work with them. Amended the constitution with a "symbolic" initiative and then did nothing to support it in court or fix it.

0:33 - NORML conference video where Dale Skye Clare Jones, chancellor of Oaksterdamn U, lies through her teeth, says they had nothing to do with taxes on medical marijuana.

1:00 - Strategy which is the subject of the press release read at the beginning of the show is the same that just occured in California with the past election, appears to be part of a well-coordinated long-term national strategy. Treating marijuana like alcohol would put it under the jurisdiction of the 21st amendment and the Department of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), the Revenuers. California Constitution exempts crops from tax, Prop. 19 would have carved out an exception for marijuana and set a precedent for other exceptions.

1:04 - Dale Shafer before being taken into custody for a 5-year mandatory minimum felony sentence for providing medical marijuana in California. He recounts a lot of important history, well worth a listen.

1:15 - NORML Los Angeles 'Next Steps' Conference, "Medical Marijuana Regulation, What Next State Wide". Backlash against medical cannabis in legislature and county and city governments.

1:24 - The Endpoint of the Kubby Shell Game, 19 May 2011 by Letitia Pepper: The moral highground and Emery & Co.

1:34 - Read the initiative. Medical marijuana patients do not support these bills. NORML does not represent us. MPP does not represent us. DPA does not represent us. They are not our friends. They should be opposing laws such as Delaware's medical marijuana abomination.

1:44 - What is Santa Cruz going to do about public housing for medical marijuana patients? Throw them out in the street for smoking?
