Blogger's Note. Back in February, I was one of 175 concerned friends of Bernie Ellis to write to President Obama a letter supporting Bernie's request for a pardon of his "crime" of growing about 100 cannabis plants for his own use and to treat four terminally ill neighbors. He is presently free after serving a sentence of two years in a halfway house, but despite being one of the top epidemiologists in the the state of Tennessee, he can no no longer work in this field due to his felony conviction. Consequently, he has lost over $1 million in lost income, legal fees, and the confiscation of part of his farm ...while those in need of an epidemiologist are denied the services of one of the best. Enough said!

Rense & Dr Chris Fichtner - Time To Put Marijuana In Every Home


Uploaded by JRense on May 16, 2011


Dr Christopher Fichtner MD is a psychiatrist and the former mental health director for the state of Illinois. In his new book, Cannabinomics: The Marijuana Policy Tipping Point, Fichtner predicts that marijuana policy is about to change radically.
Dr Fichtner points out three public policy trajectories converging; The medical marijuana movement is gaining momentum. People are increasingly waking up to the fact that drug prohibition creates more public health problems than it solves. And, in the same way that the Great Depression caused people to reprioritize how we spend our public dollars, the current economic crisis has got people thinking that bringing the biggest cash crop in the US back into the open might not be such a bad idea.
