The CCHI-2016 Rally and Free Concert In Berkeley Ca.

11539209_1465404260443048_5011296586208939518_oThis last weekend, on Saturday July 11th, the “California Cannabis Hemp Initiative 2016” launched its campaign at the Chalice event in southern California and hosted a Free Concert and Rally at the Martin Luther king Jr. Civic center park in Berkeley. I was not able to attend the Chalice Event so I do not have much to share in those regards for now. Listen and check out more info about the Chalice event on the next episode of Let My People Grow on Wednesday night from 9pm to 11pm.  You can also hear more about the Chalice event on Thursday night from 7:00pm to 9:00pm on the CCHI 2016 Radio Show.

IMG_1069

However, I was able to attend the free concert and rally in Berkeley. Michael Rivera, his lovely girlfriend, Diane Valdavinos and myself all carpooled up to the event for the day. Let me start by saying that MLK park is a lovely park with the most beautiful surrounding architecture that backdrops almost every photo you take. Ron Wesley of ALotOfFun Productions did a wonderful job securing a beautiful location, stage, the most amazing talent, and security for the event. the stage was perfectly placed for the flow of people constantly coming over from the farmers market taking place on the next street over. They could hear the wonderful music being played as they shopped for their organic fruits and veggies and would instantly migrate towards the vendors, booths and stage. Special shout out and thank you to Ron L. Wesley for making that special and awesome day possible.

 

11731700_1465403900443084_8363995586742396866_oIt really was a great day in the park. Thousands of people strolled through the park enjoying the music, food and vendors. all while stopping by the California Cannabis Hemp Initiative 2016’s booth. Some sat back in the shady round and enjoyed the show from a cool and windy distance. Many parents had their children playing in the park enjoying the music while they played on the playground. Not everyone was consuming cannabis but a lot of people were. The most shocking thing to me was there was no upturned noses from parents or people getting snooty about people consuming cannabis in the park. You also did not see a single cop harassing anyone.

 

IMG_0821The day started with the smooth groovy sounds of SopWith Camel floating through the airwaves of MLK park. minus the Bassist. Sadly his mom is not doing very well and we all wish him and his mom the very best. There almost hypnotic grooves filled the park with smiling faces and attracted the on goers of the farmers market over towards the vendors, booths, and stage. Though they were missing a band mate they truly played an awesome show for the city of Berkeley that day. Thank you guys!

 

 

 

11709839_10153479819159549_2550465298616084339_nAfter Sopwith Camel finished their amazing performance. The Island of black and white came on stage and just blew everyone away with their uniquely amazing sound and style. At one point in the performance the sound board operator was having a few technical difficulties and they continued to play acoustically. At one point in the performance the lead singer hopped on his uni-cycle and played his accordion while riding around in the front of the stage. he played for a minute or two while the band seamlessly picked up with the tune he was playing. He then returned to the stage and continued the performance. these are some really talented performers and musicians who donated their time and money to this great cause.

 

 

After the face melting performance and awesome cover of  “House of the rising sun” by the Island of black and white we got to hear from one of our first speakers of the day, Pat Malo from Santa Cruz.

 

 

 

 

IMG_0979Then The band at Hand stepped on stage and played some classic covers of some classic hits from the sixties and seventies for a bit and kept everyone grooving and smiling until the Bluesetta Band came on stage and tickled the keys and played some jazzy tunes for everyone in the park. Ima Jean Hemp even made a guest duet appearance on stage with the Bluesetta band. Rocking and wailing like there was no tomorrow. I really enjoy this band. They are all such nice lovely people and talented musicians to boot.

 

 

 

After the Bluesetta band was done wrapping up there jazzy set we got to hear from one of my personal favorite cannabis activists and freedom fighters. Chris Conrad, author,  an expert witness on cannabis and owner and operator of the West coast leaf. Now its all digital and goes by theleafonline.com. He showed up to the event to express his pride and gratitude to the people who have kept the CCHI Initiative alive all these years. This is language that was written and crafted by Jack Herer and Chris Conrad and many others many years ago. These men, and women did all the studies and researched into the real causes and people behind prohibition. They also did heavy research into the positive effects of legalizing cannabis hemp 100%. How it could in fact help save the planet, stop deforestation, replace petroleum, and help reverse the green house effects. Chris knows that the CCHI 2016 is the best language and initiative for the people of California in 2016. That is why he spent so much time in the past fighting and crafting this language in the first place. I could go on and on talking about how much I respect Chris Conrad, his awesome wife Mikki Norris, and everything he said that day. But I will just let him tell you in his own words.

 

IMG_1062

Now if that didn’t get you fired up to get off the couch and take to the streets collecting signatures, and stumping for the people’s initiative, the “CCHI2016″ I’m afraid there is not much anyone can do to motivate your lazy ass. What did he call it again? Oh yeah! ” This is the best, the best, the best initiative for the people of California and its up to us to secure it on the 2016 ballot, and its the one I want everyone busting their butt for this upcoming election cycle!”

 

 

IMG_1185Just after Chris Conrad got the entire park and city of Berkeley ready to march across the United States and demand the end of Prohibition we were all greeted with the intergalactic funky sounds of Gigantis. This lady, and gentlemen’s  where rocking and funking the hell out of MLK park during the hottest time of the day and  it never even phased there intergalactic jam session. These Guys and Lady were awesome. She even game me a free Shirt! One of my new favorite bands.

 

After the intergalactic funky grooves had finally resided. Dan Herer made his way to the stage and spoke softly, calmly and very intelligently about the importance of ending cannabis prohibition and why he believes the California Cannabis Hemp Initiative 2016 is that solution. Unlike his father he is quite and humble, But just like his dad he gets directly to the point and is very motivational. He is a very nice man and a very hard-working person that I respect dearly.

 

 

IMG_1237Once Dan Herer wrapped up his speech Clear Conscience took to the stage and blessed everyone with their reggae/rock/hip-hop sound. These guys didn’t hold back anything. They came on fast and jammed out with their rocking island vibes vibrating throughout the park. These guys did an amazing job and were quite possibly one of my favorite bands of the event. I really like the flow and sound of their music. They all really meld and mesh together quite nicely producing their very own unique sound and vibe.

 

 

Once Clear Conscience wrapped up their performance we got to hear from another O.G. cannabis activist. State Coordinator of the CCHI2016, and a dear friend and trusted associate of Jack Herer’s, Buddy Duzy. Buddy took to the stage to tell everyone that the California Cannabis Hemp Initiative 2016 is not just a pot initiative. It is a states rights initiative. This allows us to Legalize, the way we want to! These allows us to regulate, the way we want to! The government has no business, or legal right telling the sovereign people and the sovereign state of California what laws or guidelines we must abide by in regards to cannabis hemp prohibition.

 

IMG_1260Must be getting early? Are all the clocks running late? Because I’m hearing a grooving sound that is similar to the Grateful Dead, but it kinda sounds Hardly Deadly! Hardly Deadly closed out the night with some of the greatest classic Grateful Dead songs the world has ever known. They got everyone that remained in the park to come up to the stage, dance and be merry while they closed out the evening and event with their own unique and awesome dead head sound. You can tell these guys genuinely enjoy music and just jamming out till you can’t jam out no more! These guys were a great finishing act for an amazing evening in the park in Berkeley Ca.

 

I just want to thank everyone that came out to the Event last weekend. The vendors, the food, the sound guy, security, the amazing bands and speakers, and the Promoter for making this day possible. It was a very memorable day and a very successful official launch of the California Cannabis Hemp Initiative 2016’s  campaign. We are all looking forward to having many more of these types of events as the campaign continues. I know me and Diane are working hard on trying to lock down a venue to hold a CCHI 2016 Free concert and rally here in fresno or the central valley. So if you can help us with securing a location for an upcoming free concert and rally for the CCHI 2016 here in fresno please contact us at cchi2016fresno@gmail.com or at fresgrounified@gmail.com.

Before I go, I wanted to share some photos of dear friends, dedicated activists, and all the amazing vendors and booths that helped make that day possible. You guys rocked! Thanks again!

Do you want REAL Cannabis legalization in California in 2016?

Jack Herrer

Are you looking forward to the potential of Cannabis legalization in California come 2016? So am I! Have been for quite some time now. Since 2009 I have actually dedicated my life to sharing and educating people about the truths and potential of Cannabis Hemp. Its one of the main reasons I am writing this article today. The future of Cannabis legalization in California may seem almost destined to pass with flying colors in 2016. I assure you, it is not going to be as simple as it is perceived. What some may consider legalization, doesn’t necessarily equate to the legalization you may be expecting. Now with that being said, there are only a few ways to ensure that real legalization happens in 2016. And almost all of them start and end with you. Yeah you, the reader. Not just you, me and everyone else also.

First things first. If you’re sitting back waiting for the (DPA) Drug Policiy Alliance, (Norml) National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws, (ASA) Americans For Safe Access, and other so-called activists groups to deliver legalization for you. You probably would not get to excited about the final result. Do you believe they will form an initiative that favors the average patient, or consumer over the current medical marijuana industry leaders and stake holders? If you do, you have been sadly mislead. Why? Because these very organizations are ran and supported by, you guessed it, the very Industry leaders and business owners who enjoy their absorbent profits from the current unregulated model. How could I possibly know this? I have seen it first hand. I have traveled up and down this state to several cannabis events sponsored by these groups. I have seen the subversion they use to promote the Industry over the plant itself. I specifically recall the big ASA lobbying event at the state capitol a few years back. Where they specifically advertised the weekend as a patient lobbying day. So I wanted to check this lobbying day out for myself. I figured at least it would be an educational experience. Which it was, for several reasons.

Jack JointWhen we arrived at this local union hall in the middle of nowhere in Sacramento one of the first things I noticed was there was a lot of dress shirts and Dockers. Everywhere! They all had their ASA lobbying day badges around their Necks looking professional. They had very nice and lavish charter buses they had rented to bus the “Patients” from other districts to Sacramento. Where were these patients? After clambering around during their meeting recording what I could with my camera I had seen virtually no patients. Every word out of their mouths was about lobbying there representatives the following day at the capitol building . All about regulating the medical marijuana industry. The thing I found most interesting was after the meeting I wanted to speak with some of these patients and get there take on the meeting. Almost every single person I spoke with was a patient in the legal sense, but not your everyday average patient. They were all Industry insiders, and Dispensary owners there to lobby their representatives for more restrictive regulations in regards to the medical cannabis industry. I think one of the most telling signs was how excited Don Duncan got once Stephan Deangelo and his Brother showed up at the capitol building. My point is, they tell you one thing to your face, and do another behind closed doors. They verbally promote legalization, regulation and reform. But not the kind that benefits the everyday consumer and patient. If you are relying on them to author something that will meet your needs as a Consumer or a Patient. Think again!

One of my favorite Hemp activists Chris Conrad wrote a really good piece back during the TaxCannabis prop-19 debate. ( http://weedactivist.com/2010/07/25/another-word-on-jack-and-prop-19-from-chris-conrad/ ) (Excerpt) – Initially Jack deeply hated Prop 215. He literally stumped up and down the state cursing out hemp activists who backed it. He screamed at us, called us traitors for working on medical use, and claimed that Dennis Peron was secretly against legalization. When 215 was filed, Jack filed the California Hemp Initiative (CHI) on the 1996 ballot to block it. and changed the name to “California Hemp _and Health_ Initiative” so people signing it would think they had signed Prop 215, to mess with the signature count. When I called him on it, he said he was trying to keep Prop 215 off the ballot because, among other things, “people will stop working for legalization and we’ll be stuck with medical forever. No hemp, no legalization; that will be the end.” Later he circulated the CCU petitions for pay, then before the election came to support it completely. Now some people actually credit Jack for ‘passing Prop 215. Jack vociferously opposed Senate Bill 420, but he loved the dispensaries it allowed to open. ( click the Above link to read the entire piece).

cchhi-badge-2

Jacks words – “people will stop working for legalization and we’ll be stuck with medical forever. No hemp, no legalization; that will be the end.” Jack Knew it then, and they also knew it then. Guess what ? They still know it now! This is exactly what we have been dealing with for the last 19 years. The industry leaders and club owners don’t want there quasi legal black market profits going anywhere. So enter the DPA, Norml and ASA with their attempts at dividing the legalization movement as a whole. They certainly don’t want the everyday average consumer to be able to cultivate their own Cannabis at home, over buying their middle man marked up products in their stores. Do you think (Norml), (ASA) and the (DPA) want everyone in California cultivating a possible 99 plants legally? Do you think they want to lose that revenue stream? Not just the dispensary owners and industry leaders but the activist groups themselves? No they don’t! and they are very active right now at subverting attention away from the CCHI 2016 initiative for other initiatives that have not even been written yet. Yet they all love to invoke the legacy of jack Herer. Like Stephan Deangelo of Harborside in Oakland Ca. One of the Worlds largest dispensaries in the world by the way. He constantly speaks of how good friends him and Jack were, and how they shared the same vision in regards to legalization and cannabis, Well I will have to beg to differ here. I personally asked Stephan Deangelo during the CCHI 2012 signature campaign, at Harborside’s yearly shindig called The Deep Green Festival if he supported the Jack here Initiative. He simply replied, I do not support any initiative until they have already registered for the ballot. So the man who makes the most money, and the most profits in California, from the Patients of the medical cannabis industry no less, won’t support or finance any legalization effort until it has already officially made the ballot. Share the same vision my ass!

 

The point is,  if you rely on industry leaders, and activists groups to do the work for you,  you’d better get ready for a heaping pile of disappointment. Trust me when I say they will let you down every time. In the words of Jack Herer – “You guys have to be ‪warriors‬ for your own ‪freedom‬. You can’t ‪depend‬ on me or anyone else to do it for you. This freedom comes from our willingness to put our acts on the line and teach people all the comprehensive information we have learned about cannabis hemp.”  We don’t need big money, we need big motivation and big determination from an educated base of citizenry. The CCHI 2016 is organizing up and down, and throughout the entire state as I write this article. We are organizing a base of volunteers and supporters to get the signatures necessary to qualify for the November 2016 ballot. Please click the link at the top right of the site for more information on how you can get involved with the fight to liberate cannabis 100% for everyone.

Hey California! Fresno called, they want there pre-1996 marijuana laws back.

images

Only in Fresno, I tell ya! Only in Fresno California could the vast amounts of misinformation be seen as evidence to support the passing of an ordinance that prohibits any and all cultivation of  Cannabis. Retroactively handing all cultivation back over to the black market and criminal enterprises. Wait it gets worse! They have also retroactively criminalized the California legal qualified patients themselves through land use and zoning ordinances. Yup that’s right! What the people of California made Legal, Fresno has made Re-illegal!?. They have even found a way to circumvent the due process of law when it comes to qualified medicinal cannabis cultivators.  First they mail them a certified letter threatening to fine you administratively $1000 for every plant on the property. The county’s 15 Day Notice tells the grower they have to remove all plants within 15 days, or face extremely stiff  administrative penalties. In the only 2 cases on record so far, the abatement was done on the same day the individuals were given their 15 Day Notice to abate. does that sound like due process? Wait? Do you feel these fines and levees against you are unjustifiable and unwarranted?  Don worry you can always appeal to the Fresno county board of supervisors and hope they understand that your a legal qualified medical marijuana patient of the state California, and not of Fresno. The Fresno county board of supervisors has implemented such an evasive ordinance that it not only circumvents the true written intent of the (CUA). It circumvents the very constitution of California. 

Well it still gets worse unfortunately. No dispensaries or medicinal cannabis store fronts or collectives allowed either. So they have also retroactively returned all access, or purchases to the criminal enterprises and black market. The only viable options left for the legal medicinal cannabis patients are traveling to other progressive cities and counties within California that does not seem to have regressive leadership or governance. Which in turn puts huge financial and travel burdens upon the medicinal cannabis patients. Or the final and last result, simply move away from there delusional ideals of governance that exist in this time warp called Fresno.  Welcome to my home town people  Where the  boards of supervisors and city councils are the deciding factor and regulator of your health, medicine, and well being over the recommendations of a licensed physician. Where local law enforcement continually suggests that the Drug Cartels and criminal enterprises should have 100% control of all Cannabis grown in Fresno so they can better serve and protect you. Does any of this make sense to you? Welcome to the wild, wild west of Fresno folks, where the dumb folk roam, and the skies are all smoggy all day!

The City and County of Fresno has gone far beyond just banning large illegal commercial cannabis grows in there districts and county. (Those where already illegal ) They have thwarted the the intent of the (CUA) compassion use act of 1996.  Or as its more commonly known and referred to as, Prop 215.  They act as if the law never existed in the first place. Not only trampling on the (CUA)-Prop-215, but the later clarifications of the (MMPA) Medical Marijuana Program Act of 2003. Or as it is more commonly known and referred to as SB-420. Senate Bill-420 was an act of the legislators that helped further clarify and define the guidelines of the (CUA) because Law enforcement in places like FRESNO county were continually arresting qualified legal patients. The actions of these misinformed law enforcement and local governments out right thwarted the intent of the law as written and passed by the voting populous of California.

drug-war

No legal cultivation allowed at all. No legal indoor cultivation in the privacy of your own home. No legal outdoor cultivation on the privacy of your own property. No legal dispensaries or store fronts in your own city or county. All through the power of land use and zoning?  But the Fresno county health department will gladly take the peoples money and there doctors recommendation and supply them with a (MMPA) California State Medical Marijuana Card, with a Fresno county health department logo on it.  You can even get your doctors  recommendation directly through the Fresno county health dept. Through one of there licensed physicians.  So the County of Fresno is not only participating in the (MMPA) SB-420, its profiting from the state medical marijuana card program then turning around and telling those qualified patients to access there medicine anywhere but in Fresno? Oh, and good luck out there, I here, it can be pretty shady. Does this make sense to you? Is it legal? I am not lawyer, but I am pretty sure there is some illegal activity taking place here.

you know that old saying? Ignorance of the law is no excuse? Well have you ever considered applying that phrase on those who continually love to throw it in your face. Well the Sheriffs department, Local police department, and Local governments of Fresno are all  guilty of that very thing and are hoping the common voter never discovers that. For if you did, you would find that the only people acting as criminals and tyrannical thugs are the ones wearing the suits, costumes and uniforms of local Law enforcement, City Attorneys, and the elected representatives of Fresno. In my personal opinion it is an outright infringement of not only our California constitutional rights. It is also an outright infringement of  our United States constitutional rights. Now bare in mind, I am no lawyer or law professor. and this is no way to be construed as legal advice.  But I am pretty sure Banning me from access to my medicine recommended by a licensed physician is infringing on my right to “Life”.  Banning me from cultivating my medicine on my own personal property,whether indoors or out is infringing on my my right to “Property” and “Life”. And both of those actions are inherently infringing on my right to “Happiness”. Are you catching on here people ?

Law enforcement never has and never will want to decriminalize anything. Especially Cannabis. That is one of Law enforcement’s “bread and butter’s” shall we say. More Specifically it is one of Margaret Mimms of the Fresno county Sheriffs departments personal blundered legacies she plans on leaving behind her. It would also appear that the Fresno city chief of police Jerry Dyer seems to be riding her coat tails with exact same nonsense. Margaret Mimms headed up the Marijuana Eradication task force here in Fresno county. Unfortunately her and many other small sheriffs dept statewide have been confusing and arresting qualified legal patients since the passing of prop-215 (CUA). The very Reason SB-420 (MMPA) was drafted and passed in 2003. To further clarify prop-215 (CUA). Either they where confused or ignorant of the law, or they simply didn’t give two flying farts to the wind either which way.  That would put to many good officers on the unemployment line. As if to say needing less police is a bad thing? or focusing those officers attention to more pressing criminal matters is a bad thing. Therefore when they don’t like laws passed by the legislators, or governing bodies they simply ignore them as if they never existed to begin with. Hence the ignorance that billows about the room at these very council and supervisor meetings in regards to the actual law as written. 95% percent of the time the elected representatives only repeat and spew out what is interpreted and handed to them by Law enforcement. Never the actual law as written and defined. that is a serious problem folks. How the (CUA) was written is not the true problem at play here.

Have any of you ever read the California constitution? Did you know unlike most of the states in the union, here in California the people have the unique ability to pass there own laws through the statewide voter initiative process. Well that is exactly what happened with prop-215 (CUA). it was not law enforcement or the legislators that authored and circulated prop-215. It was the grassroots activists and citizens of California that wrote, circulated, and passed prop-215 (CUA).  Did you know that not even the highest California legislators in the land can change the  laws passed by the voter initiative process? The only way to to change voter initiatives is by another voter proposed initiative. The California constitution states, “what the voters have done, the Legislature cannot undo.” Interesting!? Well if you can not undo it? what do you do if you don’t like it? pretend it does not apply? Or simply imply it was so vaguely written as to allow certain localities to opt out or not participate in way shape or form? NO, it does not work that way. But is that not essentially what Fresno is trying to accomplish here with the passing of this unlawful ordinance? If the Legislator Cannot undo what the voters have done? Neither can the  city and county of Fresno right?  No matter how much they hate it. No matter how vague there interpretation. The legalese, wording and actual intent remain the same and can only be changed by the voters. are you starting to truly understand the malicious hatred and fury this ignites in law enforcement and the governing bodies its controls? This is truly of, for, and by the people governing. something they have no control over. And regardless of  Prop-215 and SB-420’s flaws, We the people should, and shall defend it with dignity and due diligence. regardless of whether or not you like or dislike Cannabis. This not just a game of politics anymore. If the only law Fresno answers to is the laws written of, by and for Fresno? are they circumventing state laws themselves ?  

I would now like to raise some very concerning questions and points of notice in regards to this intrusive unconstitutional ordinance being forced down the unwilling peoples of Fresno’s throats. Question #1 – Could you possibly conceive that the county board of supervisors, or city council representatives in the city in which you reside where the ultimate dictators and regulators of access to you medicine, health and well being, over the recommendation of a licensed physician? Is this an oligarchy or a democratic republic in which we reside? Question #2- Do you Honestly believe that passing this ordinance will curtail the illegal activity and crime associated with cannabis cultivation? Because the sad truth is, your only insuring that all cannabis cultivation is  a criminal act. Including legally qualified medicinal cultivation. Which directly conflicts with the peoples law of California and protections guaranteed by the California constitution.

The plain and simple truth is the only way to insure you lower criminal activity associated with Cannabis is by decriminalizing, legalizing and properly regulating the legal industry which arises. Weather it is strictly a model for only legal qualified medical patients, or a model for outright recreational use for responsible adult consumption. The very reason people steal, kill and commit crimes over or for Cannabis is because of the very laws that prohibit it. And the fact they will fetch a very high price in the illegal black market created by its prohibition. Where the demand never really went away by choice or organic methods.  It was forced out by unnecessary and unjustifiable means.  If  it where Legal, easily accessible and cultivated by everyone in there yards, and  sensibly regulated and controlled it would be easily accessible to all. and you wouldn’t have Criminals jumping fences and killing people over a natural plant. effectively eliminating the intrinsic criminal enterprises and aspects of the failed models of prohibition. Wake up People of Fresno! we do not have to continually stand by while these regressive leaders of our governing bodies are constantly trying to move the progressive needle backwards. We must stand up and be heard. For they will continue to oppress and and trample on anything and everything they deem a NUISANCE.  Remember this point right here! the very reason they hold that much power is because we willingly sent them there to speak for us. Citizens and people of Fresno, Stand up and speak for yourselves!
