Peter Reynolds
By James Collins
Peter Reynolds — of the United Kingdom cannabis law reform group CLEAR — is back in rare form once again, threatening to sue people. I know, that doesn’t sound like news. In fact, it can’t be news, because the root word in news is “new” — and Peter is a dog that just can’t get the hang of new tricks.
He has in the past threatened to sue just about everyone, from Alan Wyllie from Politics UK, to the publishers of this site, all the way to former members of CLEAR, including the fellow who set up their rather slick online presence.
Yes, the guy who set up the CLEAR web site is now part of the effort to expose Peter Reynolds. Peter is currently riding the coattails of a man who now despises him. How sad is that?
The latest outburst from Peter “The Redactor” Reynolds is uniquely hostile. He has newly threatened — amongst others — an autistic student, a man in a wheelchair, a successful businessman, and while I haven’t been privy to such a communication, I wouldn’t be surprised if he threatened David Cameron with legal action as well.

Worth Repeating

A Chinese Neolithic legend said that the gods gave humans one plant to fulfill all of their needs.
 
That plant was hemp.
 
One plant with five must-have survival products: food, rope, cloth, medicine and spiritual enlightenment.
The first contact between humans and the hemp plant are lost to history. 
The following history is circumstantial; it is my attempt to reverse-engineer the missing prehistory of cannabis that hasn’t been told.

Marc Emery, with wife Jody backing him up, speaks to reporters outside the B.C. Supreme Court in May 2010. He is scheduled to be sentenced to 5 years in U.S. federal prison on Friday, September 10.

​Marijuana activists from Washington state and around North America will gather outside the Federal Courthouse at 700 Stewart Street in Seattle on Friday, September 10, to protest the sentencing of Marc Emery, the “Prince of Pot,” who faces five years in prison for selling mail-order cannabis seeds to Americans.

Cannabis advocates are calling on President Barack Obama to pardon Emery, who faced federal charges after Drug Enforcement Administration agents entered Canada and arrested him in 2005. He is expected to be sentenced to five years in federal prison under a plea agreement reached with federal prosecutors.

Did Kentucky Senate hopeful Rand Paul tie a college girl up and try to force her to take bong hits?

​A new article profiling Kentucky Republican Senate hopeful Rand Paul’s college days makes the allegation that Paul and a friend once kidnapped a classmate and tried to force her to smoke marijuana.

The GQ Magazine article by Jason Zengerle relates the anecdote about Tea Party darling Paul and another alleged member of the “NoZe Brotherhood,” a “secret society” described as “a refuge for atypical Baylor students,” reports Stephanie Condon at CBS News.
The unnamed woman, reportedly a college classmate of Paul’s, requested anonymity because of her current job as a clinical psychologist, according to GQ. She told Zengerle about the incident, which allegedly occurred in 1983:
“He and Randy came to my house, they knocked on my door, and then they blindfolded me, tied me up, and put me in their car. They took me to their apartment and tried to force me to take bong hits. They’d been smoking pot.” After the woman refused to smoke with them, Paul and his friend put her back in their car and drove to the countryside outside of Waco, where they stopped near a creek. “They told me their god was ‘Aqua Buddha’ and that I needed to bow down and worship him,” the woman recalls. “They blindfolded me and made me bow down to ‘Aqua Buddha’ in the creek. I had to say, ‘I worship you Aqua Buddha, I worship you.’
