Dimes of freedom
EDITOR: Marijuana is different things to different people. Nobody’s denying sick people medicine. That marijuana has become the manifestation of personal greed should be denied. Marijuana is part of a spiritual and cosmic connection to nature and the universe. Marijuana is a right of religious freedom.
Marijuana is powerful medicine.
This is why it should be free. If you grow marijuana and you know someone who’s sick please help to ease their suffering. Why should sick people have to pay for medicine or be required to ask permission? I’m sick, so bill me. Do you have a note? I have notes for sale.
People try to make money off of everything. Art, music, sex, and some plant that grows in your garden. There’s a point where it’s just about money. It’s illegal to pay for sex. But it’s OK to give it away. Support the Free Grass Movement, (FGM). Say no to greedy people. Reduce both crime and litigation.
Stop the creation of a false economy.
Marijuana is part of a spiritual ritual and a commitment to personal freedom.
You grow it. You nurture it. You cure it.
You keep it in a special little box. You roll some up around sunset. Turn on your stereo. Light some candles. Watch the oscillating sprinkler go back and forth across the lawn. And you turn to your woman and you say, “Hey, baby, what can I do for you?” And she says, “Make me smile.” Mix it up a little, keep life interesting. Reinvent your life.
So grow as much grass as you possibly can. Go ahead and be Johnny Marijuana Seed. Give some to your sick friends. Groove to the music, and stare out into space. Put a smile on your lady’s face. This is how we choose to worship.
People are killed in the name of freedom.
Why should we have to die for freedom?
Poetic enemy #1
EDITOR: A poem:
There once was a dim-witted villager,
Who went out to check on a pillager,
And, the trail that she followed,
... just got her swallowed
By a boa, we’ll call, “John Dillinger”!
Village of the dammed
EDITOR: The pending purchase of Mission Bell Farm by the Blue Wing Trust (“Nonprofit to Buy Clydesdale Farm,” June 15) is significant because it likely protects historical artifacts. When in docent training with a state park representative, he walked us along East Spain Street toward East Second. He said the original Mission dam and lake are on the Mission Bell property. Today, two old barn buildings sit on the site of the Mission dam and lake. These were likely built by Native Americans to hold water from a Schocken Hill source. If one walks by the property along East Spain Street you will see the large stones that form the overflow from the dam. It flows into a culvert under Spain Street. Our park rep said it is likely one of the only remaining original undisturbed Native American artifacts. I encourage visitors to the Mission to walk there and think about the importance of those few boulders.
Hooray for the Blue Wing Trust!
