BBC and Channel 4 censorship of the Cannabis Man!
By : Bud Hayes - Thursday April 6, 2006
So where were we before Channel 4 and the BBC decided to rain on our parade? Well, we were having a little look at how it might actually be a good idea to try and take drugs out of the hands of dealers and protect citizens from crime and adulterated substances. Obviously this represents a concept that might be mistaken for joined up thinking so it’s unlikely that there will be a queue of politicians lining up to join us. However, before we get back to the straight forward sensible (...)

Cannabis is not about Drugs
By : Bud Hayes - Wednesday April 5, 2006
Today is the day, as promised when we will take the time out to have a little look at the benefits that cannabis could bring to a society willing to embrace its possibilities. But first, and perhaps most importantly, it may be necessary to address one or two of the issues raised by previous posts under this banner. Many, many are supportive but others raise issues and debating points that we will not duck. We are not sure at which point the Cannabis Man’s views have ever expressed (...)

The Cannabis Man Fights On
By : Bud Hayes - Tuesday April 4, 2006
So what exactly is it about cannabis that frightens governments so much? Now isn’t that a question that great swathes of the world’s population would like an answer to? Let’s face it, many, many people turn to cannabis at one point or another in their lives. We all know that just about ever pop musician in the world has a relationship with this plant, that’s not mention at least one member of the Royal Family in Britain and people on probably every street in the (...)

Cannabis is illegal by mistake.
By : Bud Hayes - Monday April 3, 2006

It was added to a list of proscribed substances in an act of crass stupidity by a junior apparatchik during the 1920’s. Of course, however the mistake is made, we all know that our wonderful governments do not admit to fallibility. How we have suffered as a result. Now the time has surely arrived for us, as a nation, to take a grown up standpoint on such a ridiculous decision. Cannabis is called weed for a single reason: if it gets the chance it will grow anywhere. From that (...)

Published on Saturday, April 1, 2006 by the Independent/UK Thirty-five years after the US sprayed the jungles of Vietnam with toxic defoliant, thousands of babies are still being born with horrific defects. But unlike the American veterans, no one in the war-ravaged country has received any compensation. On a table in the dimly lit room lay a small white bundle, tied with a silver ribbon. With a brilliant smile and a barked order, Professor Nguyen Thi Phuong had directed me to the morgue (...)

Brain Cells Fused with Computer Chip
By : Johan - Saturday April 1, 2006
By Ker Than LiveScience Staff Writer posted: 27 March 2006 11:36 am ET The line between living organisms and machines has just become a whole lot blurrier. European researchers have developed "neuro-chips" in which living brain cells and silicon circuits are coupled together. The achievement could one day enable the creation of sophisticated neural prostheses to treat neurological disorders or the development of organic computers that crunch numbers using living neurons.

By Anne McElroy Dachel It is becoming more and more obvious that we have a growing crisis on our hands in the U.S., yet we’re at a loss on how we should deal with it. Increasingly, we’re hearing about autism. There are walks and ribbons to create awareness for autism. Parents support groups have formed all over the country. Schools have had to focus on the needs of the growing number of students with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. This debilitating, neurological (...)

Published on Thursday, March 23, 2006 by the Independent / UK The debate over the health effects of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Britain reopens today with research which suggests that infant deaths were higher in areas where rain fell as the plume of fallout passed overhead. A study by the epidemiologist John Urquhart, to be presented at a conference at City Hall in London marking the 20th anniversary of the disaster, suggests that infant deaths may have risen by 11 per cent between (...)

The Airborne Menace ”[We’re being asked to believe] that migratory birds in Asia have been infected with an extremely dangerous, deadly virus. These mortally diseased birds then keep flying for weeks on end. They fly thousands of kilometres, and then in Romania, in Turkey, Greece and elsewhere infect hens, geese or other poultry, with which they have had no contact, and which within a very short time get diseased and die. But the migratory birds do not get diseased and do not (...)

Fortune Magazine/Nelson D. Schwartz A year ago Tamiflu was known, if at all, as an obscure remedy for influenza, which doctors typically treat with bed rest and chicken soup. Today, with panic mounting over a potential bird flu pandemic, it’s the most sought-after drug in the world, as everyone from suburban soccer moms in the U.S. to health officials in London and Taipei scramble to stockpile the pill. At the moment, it seems, virtually the entire world is on sick-chicken alert. (...)

The Poet Ezra Pound once said The technique of infamy is to invent two lies, then get people arguing heatedly over which one of them is true. This can be said of Every Issue in American Politics.

Dr. Frist Immunizes Big Pharma

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
