Will Cannabis Consumers Flock To Alaska? We Find Out In November.

November is possibly going to be very historic once again in the cannabis reform movement. Alaska has officially put their hat in the ring for full on cannabis legalization. I can imagine their are a lot of happy Alaskans up there, just getting it on the ballot.  Congratulations Alaskans! Now vote it in! California tried unsuccessfully to legalize cannabis during a midterm election. Maybe Alaska will break the midterm cycle of bad luck.

I remember years ago when I lived up there, I was listening to the radio one day and a guy called into the radio station complaining about cannabis being illegal. The DJ quickly retorted "If you stoners hadn't of gotten high and forgot to vote, it would be legal right now!" It kinda stuck in my mind that if we want change we are going to have to vote it in. Because we cannot count on our politicians it seems like to do anything.

The cannabis economy will flourish up there since they would have direct access to another cannabis friendly state, Washington. I can already see the ferry's bringing down some Alaskan Thunder Fuck. Which happens to be a nice uplifting sativa by the way. They probably prefer something uplifting up there, especially on those long nights.

There are a lot of things to see and do in Alaska, with cannabis it would be so much better.

Here are a few good suggestions if you are lucky enough to get up that way.

First off, I would strongly recommend Chena Hot Springs. It is about 60 miles NE of Fairbanks, AK.  Just imagine what it would be like smoking a joint in a hot springs bordering the arctic circle. Surrounded by mountains, and clear starry skies dancing with the aurora borealis!

I wouldn't recommend getting high before you attempt this, but if you can manage to stash something and keep it dry, you might be ready to burn one after the ride!

Getting high and fishing is always one of my favorite activities. If you like fishing, well up in Alaska, you might end up with lots of folks who like to fish just as much as you do. Ever heard of combat fishing? It's where you have a bunch of fisherman in the same area fishing over each other. If you had a  doobie you might not mind it so bad when your line gets tangled from some overzealous fisherman next to you.

Hopefully our Alaskan brothers and sisters will vote for legalizing cannabis in November.  Until then keep having those green dreams!

"Beat Marijuana Charges Without Plea Bargaining" Update

"Beat Marijuana Charges Without Plea Bargaining" has been hijacked from the author on

Since the books release last August, the author John Kelly has not received one dime from his book. Also he has been unable to monitor/edit the account, or to even see how many books he has sold.

John Kelly is an expert on the forensic identification of cannabis and the drug testing procedures used to determine if a substance is cannabis. He was nominated a Pulitzer alongside Peter Wearne for the book "Tainting Evidence" He also co-published an article with the Marijuana Policy Project called "False Positives Equals False Justice"

The book goes into great detail about junk science and poor practices in federal/state forensic crime labs. Using current cases in the news about how drug tests were manipulated to falsely get convictions. How Lab Techs are being swayed by prosecutors to get convictions.  

It seems like people would want to learn more about this book, but unfortunately any promotion of the book right now is being held back.

A supposed friend of John Kelly who lives on the other side of the country was entrusted to help him publish it through Amazon.  Several months after the book was published I was notified by John Kelly that he was getting the run around from the guy who published his book.

John gave me the persons name and number and I personally called him to get some clarification of his intent with the account. He explained to me that he was currently homeless and he had no access to a computer. Shortly afterwards he mentioned having a smartphone... The person promised he would get in touch with me or John Kelly as soon as possible to straighten up the account. 

Since then several months have passed and no commitments were ever followed through. 

I consulted a bit about the subject in Amazon support forum. They alluded to hiring lawyers and courts if the person doesn't comply.

Compliance would simply be handing John Kelly the account name and password from Amazon and Kindle.  

As a personal friend of John Kelly, I know firsthand that he has gone through. He has had ill health and severe depression. He spent over 5 years of his life doing research for this book. John has been helping people fight convictions. Sometimes for free, or maybe by reading one his articles on the internet. He really wants a chance to show you the evidence, but right now, his hands are tied.

In the meantime I am leaving my Amazon link on the side of my blog. I still want people to be aware of it. Check it out, it is relevant, but please don't buy it from my account link. I will not be promoting this book any further until John Kelly has been returned possession of the account.
