    JEP seems to be near giddy with the legalization of marijuana in Oregon, while JC appears to be more cautious and perhaps quietly skeptical in light of his cohort’s enthusiasm. Though I’m not sure, if I were to venture a guess, I would be inclined to think that JEP imbibes from time to time while I don’t get the sense that JC does.

    To my point… I am not aware of any alternative or independent news source that has investigated WHY the legalization of “recreational” marijuana use has been taking place these past however many years. I am of the inclination to ask a few questions such as: Why are GOVERNMENTS legalizing it? Why now? Why NOW after all these years? How might it benefit the PTSB and the unfolding of the NWO NOW? Who really WON?

    Compared to the use of opiates, marijuana is a better way to go if you are seeking a mind-altering experience that will not result in you suffering horrendous physical addiction, though I know of no former heroin users who are interested in pot; they usually go the alcohol route in order to black out if they are going to pick up a drug again.(But JEP provides us with a story of a former opioid user who has found peace in pot. Cue the violins and grab a tissue to dab the tears.)

    Of course I would much rather be cruising down the freeway surrounded by drivers who are stoned as opposed to under the influence of too much alcohol. That’s a no-brainer. HOWEVER, to suggest or imply that marijuana is a benign “recreational” drug that is good for a few laughs and perhaps some brownie binges is, in my opinion, to basically climb on board the state’s, STATE’s, and DEEP STATE’s train of “let’s pacify them, DRUG them, numb them with pot in addition to all the other ways that we are already distracting and drugging and dumbing and numbing them via reality TV, smart phones, celebrity-ism, social media, sports scandals, etc.”

    Marijuana use, while “recreational” and controllable for some, is not for others. Or it may start out recreationally and then become something that is more than recreational and harder to break free from. Periodic use can and does become regular use and then chronic use for some, while others can take it or leave it and never have a problem, much like very light social drinkers.

    I know of no marijuana users, myself included when I was a pot fan back in the 70s and 80s as well as others back then, some of whom went to treatment, who were filled with a heightened sense of personal agency, purpose, or commitment to much of anything other than getting high and getting by. I’m sure that the potency of pot today, GMO altered or not, is such that it’s still not known as the number one motivator in life.

    Though I personally had access to some high quality herb back in the day, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the potency of the legal herb today is SIGNIFICANTLY IF NOT EXPONENTIALLY stronger than the best of the best that many of us had access to decades ago.

    Again, why have state GOVERNMENTS been legalizing marijuana recently? How does it benefit the PTSB? Is it just for tax revenues, akin to the legalization of state lottery tickets or is it something more sinister?

    Obviously, we don’t want people going to jail for pot use, yet perhaps the legalization of this stronger-than-ever marijuana imprisons some users in ways such as a loss of motivation and being “comfortably numb.” People on drugs, including marijuana, do not tend to be involved or engaged in challenging–or even becoming informed about–the machinations and plans of the PTSB. I know of no groups such as Potheads for Peace or Meth Heads against Military Madness or Opiate Addicts for Ending Oppression in Palestine, though I admit to not having done even one Google search.

    I believe the legalization of pot use is a deliberate act of the state and deep state to further dumb us down, disempower us, de-incentive-ize us, hence I don’t think it’s a laughing matter or something to get giddy about. Gee, another drug that alters the minds of those under its influence and that serves as a depressant as people nod off–granted, not in the same way that heroin users nod out or those who have had too much to drink pass out–is hailed as a milestone of personal freedom? Methinks not. It’s yet another way to pacify and keep the masses passive so that the PTSB can continue to roll over us unimpeded.

    If you’re so inclined, hoist your joint, spliff, pipe, bong, or pot-laden brownie to the long awaited victory of the legalization of marijuana in your state if you want. Then take a pot-induced nap. Wow! What a breakthrough in civil liberties! You now get to have a legal smile, while the STATE enjoys the “illicit smile” that comes with further duping and dumbing down the public so that they can roll over us unimpeded by crossing off their checklist the legalization of marijuana in your state. Another success story for social engineering, as pot lovers everywhere thought that it was their “activism” that resulted in this new “freedom” while the deep state laughs all the way to your deeper and final imprisonment.

    • Corbett says:

      Thank you for the comment. No thank you for your condescending attitude. For your information James and I have discussed the reasons behind the push for legalization of marijuana at least half a dozen times over the years. For example:

      James has also discussed the issue many times on his old MediaMonarchy podcast. I realize not everyone has listened to everything we’ve ever done, but perhaps you could give us the benefit of the doubt rather than assuming that we have never thought of such things.

      • garyegeberg says:

        I will examine my “condescending attitude” and invite you to do the same. In case no one’s pointed this out to you, and I don’t do so out of quid pro quo or because you called me out on what came across as condescending to you, though that wasn’t my intent but certainly something I will be very mindful of in the future, you do communicate disgust, exasperation, and condescension in many of your podcasts because people are not awake, are voting (see the Trudeau podcast for one), and so forth. You often assume that people are choosing to avoid what is right in front of their faces when, in fact, most people are not even aware of alternative/independent news and have been conditioned to reference people such as us as poor, misguided conspiracy theorists. I sense your style is at times born of frustration as is mine, rather than anything intentional.

        IMO, even the use of the word “sheeple,” which is used by many in alternative/independent news (I don’t know if it is a term you use) is as condescending and dismissive as “conspiracy theorist, so I suspect that many of us, myself included, can benefit from corrective feedback.

        I extend a cordial invitation to you to see if you, unwittingly I’m sure, have fallen into a style of communication that I unwittingly did as well. Something that bothers me in or about others is usually something that I have some struggles with myself, which may be why my comment bothered you.

        As for myself, I see my failure in the above communication as a sign that I need to better contain and then release that which has been building up for some time, as the marijuana issue is something that has bothered me for a while, unfortunately to the point of coming out in an unskillful manner, for which I take full responsibility. I truly do appreciate you letting me know, and I truly intend to self-correct.

        I got the distinct impression from JEC in this podcast that the legalization of MJ in Oregon was a trite, benign, and celebratory thing, thus I responded–actually, reacted. As for podcasts that you and JEC have done in the past on the topic of the legalization of marijuana, no, I didn’t know about them, and will check them out. I look forward to learning what your and his take is on this legalization trend. Again, thank you for the feedback.

        Finally, you are welcome to delete my original comment and our subsequent exchange if you’d like. I’m not invested in anything I’ve written, and obviously the thrust of this podcast was not about MJ, so I am a bit off topic.

        • Corbett says:

          Thanks for the reply, Gary. Rather than delete the comments I think it’s an instructive exchange for everyone (those reading as well). If I come across as curt it is only because I am told hundreds of times a day via YouTube comments, emails, voice messages and website comments what to say, what not to say, how to say it, how not to say it, how I should or shouldn’t dress, who I should or should not associate with, etc. etc. etc. Obviously given that I’ve been doing this for 8 years it’s mostly water off a duck’s back, but it can be frustrating when I perceive that a subscriber is implying that I or my guest have not thought about something that we have in fact talked about multiple times over a period of years. (Dan Dicks and I discussed the government’s ulterior motives for legalizing pot in Canada just four days ago if you’ll recall) It makes me wonder if we have to bring up every aspect of every topic we’re discussing every time we’re discussing it from here to eternity, no matter how much of a digression that may be from the topic at hand. As I say, I hope you can appreciate that such considerations can be frustrating, and again if my reply seemed curt it is only because your comment was the 78th such comment I have received today.

          Once again, that’s the human angle behind my seemingly curt reply. My apologies if it hurt your feelings, as that was not my intention. Hopefully we can both learn to better appreciate the motivations, intentions and humanity of each other in our interactions going forward to avoid such mis-communications in the future.

          • garyegeberg says:

            Thank you. Again, my feelings weren’t hurt–or at least not fatally so. I saw your feedback as instructive. Ironically, just this past week I had identified four personal patterns that have not served me or anyone else well in the past that I wanted to be more mindful of in the present. You simply brought up another one. All of them are quite easy to correct or improve upon at this stage of my life.

            In the past I would have felt unduly hurt and resentful of your comment, but I’ve finally developed a bit of Teflon skin (like Reagan) so I heard your criticism as something that was correctable rather than as an attack on my personhood.

            Thanks, too, for letting me and others know about all the unsolicited advice you get everyday. I can’t even begin to imagine what that’s like.

            Having had a father who “offered” me unsolicited advice on just about everything all of my life, though he was an expert on nothing, I was very careful in not doing the same to my daughters. I usually asked for their permission before offering my input on something they were struggling with, and that offer only came after carefully listening to them. I am proud of being skillful in that regard, though my skillset was lacking in other aspects of life.

            I guess that’s why I resonate with Buddhist psychology so much and it’s emphasis on “the immense interactive field of causality” which is why I am inclined to emphasize conditioning in my comments, and that we can learn “skillful means” through conscious intention, practice, and training.

    James, did you become a Cubs fan because Billy Corgan is a huge Cubs fan? Haha~

  3. setatliberty says:

    The DNA database request by the Federal government is much like my experience with the Ron Paul “Campaign For Liberty.” I fell for the Ron Paul campaign in 2012. It was shortly after I had come out of the matrix mindset…still had some fog. Well, after he gathered all of his momentum, he broke his promise and bowed out of the campaign. Then began to send me warnings that the federal government was attempting to acquire his database of supporters. The only way to stop this was to “Donate money.” There was a preemptive apology from C4L for the feds getting my name and info UNLESS I donated money. I was like “F**K!” That bastard was working for them all along. So, if you donated to Ron Paul, your on the list.

    James, I am listening to your “Ron Paul Trap” podcast right now. I’m only 9 minutes into it and I am sort of relieved to hear that you too actually thought that Ron Paul was the real deal and supported his campaign. You seemed to have evolved away from the whole voting Selection process altogether now. I say that I am sort of relieved, because you are probably the most credible journalist I have ever “followed” and it gives me hope that my intellectual prowess may one day reach a level nigh unto yours. All that to say, we are not flawless.

    They should’ve allowed Billy Sianis to bring his goat into the game! They have to change their name if they ever want to win.
