Welcome

Cannabis/Marijuana prohibition celebrates its 89th year this year (2019). This is because the public to this day is being lied to by the Government, the Judaical system and even the groups who claim they "want to end prohibition".  They all do this for one reason and one reason only.  When prohibition ENDS they are out of business.  Therefore they have no motivation to do as they claim.  For almost a decade we have brought you this information and other facts and will continue to do so. 

 On that note, enter at the risk of being informed! 

This is a re-launch of our updated site, please bear with us as we continue to update it.  

Working to bring you the "Facts Behind The Headlines!

ACTION ALERT!! FDA requesting comments on rescheduling of Cannabis! EXPIRES MARCH 14!!
