Lt. O’Brien of Philadelphia Police Department, had to be by far the nicest/funniest Officer at the Philly Smoke Down Prohibition VIII. I respected him because he acted like an actual person while debating a few questions that were brought up. While interviewing we should of brought up the organization, L.E.A.P (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition).
“Law Enforcement Against Prohibition is an international 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization of
criminal justice professionals who bear personal witness to the wasteful futility and harms
of our current drug policies.”
If you know of any Law Enforcement Agents that also believe the War on Drugs is wasteful, tell them they are not alone and shouldn’t have to hide. Let them know there is a huge organization for them.

Linking up with my friend Tom, we got a chance to talk with Combat Vet Mike Whiter about the rallies in Philadelphia, PA on Saturday August 3st. The two rallies that took place at where the home of our Liberty Bell is at Independence Mall,. The No War With Syria and the Smoke Down Prohibition VIII.
First, he talked about his time in the military as a Staff Sergeant of the US Marines and how the war in Iraq effected him. After being prescribed over 40 types of pills (many being opiates for depression) for 5 years and suffering from PSTD, he started looking to proven alternative medication. He decided to try Cannabis and by the second time of using it for a medicinal reason he went cold turkey on all the prescriptions that were making things worse.
Along with kicking the pills to the curb he also started to see life and situations through the eyes of an “awakened” citizen. He started to see the connection between the war that he participated in and the possible war with Syria.
Mike was also there for the Smoke Down Prohibition VIII as a representative of being an Executive Director of Philly NORML, Pennsylvania Veterans for Medical Marijuana and The Panic Hour. He started to go over how he and Chris Goldstein (another Executive Director of Philly NORML) will be helping to make that organization more active. They will be working on more appearances to spread awareness, creating a podcast (I will post once it is up and running), etc.

Just watched this Documentary about how Water companies believe that WATER should be Privatized and not a Right. When we start making money more important than water, we have a HUGE issue. This video will help explain the reasons why our current system of agriculture, climate change and corporations are heading in a negative direction. The decommission of dams, new designs (permaculture can be applied) to help “recharge” our ground water since we are currently pumping more water than the Earth is regaining. The future of alternative energy, agriculture and how we can save Earth along with all that live here. We must re-learn to live WITHIN nature not try to be above and control it.
Now, tell me that water being privatized makes any sense? We ALL NEED water to survive.
Is this real life?
Once again we have been put in the dark here in America from the media NOT covering stories that actually effect our future lives.
Talking with Mitch from the Food and Water Watch from DC: We discussed what is going on behind closed doors in a secret meeting of 12 countries coming up with the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, which will basically give Corporations power over Governments. This agreement will effect people through their use of Food, Water, Medication, Internet, etc. This will give the Corporations the ability to sue Government if they feel it is not in the best interest to to Company…. Although we are not exactly sure when they will be voting on this for the Fast Track but it may be as soon as Fall/Winter 2013!

Who doesn’t like saving money? Let your plants grow and seed out after bolting, so you can save the money on seeds and put it towards something else next year.
The other day I decided to create one of the easiest ways to collect worm compost to make Compost Tea for my garden. This is how I made it for under $15.
I was correct! Unfortunately, I wish I grabbed more. At least now I know what to do for future harvests. Pine Pollen is a great healthy, raw, organic harvested, complete protein, a lot of minerals, amino acids, helps boost testosterone, helps regulate hormones and best of all EASY to harvest!
Add it to shakes, make tinctures or encapsulate to name a few ways on what to do with this powerful wild medicine!

Ray came on to the stage and shocked the crowd with the evidence he had collected over the past 3 years he worked with the Chesapeake Water Company and talking with the DEP and EPA about the changes in the water in Dimock, Pennsylvania. You can check it out yourself and see videos of people lighting their tap water ON FIRE! Ray is a very Brave man for standing up and informing all of us! Thank you Ray!
On June 20, 2013, there was a rally to override Governor Christie’s Veto on the Fracking and Waste Water opinion. WE the PEOPLE of NJ (along with the rest of the World) should stand up and tell our REPRESENTATIVES that we do not want this in our area. Once you find out the REAL FACTS about this issue you will probably feel the same way. Most people would agree having Radiation, toxins, and bacteria in our drinking water is a BAD thing. Check out this Channel for more chats about this topic.
Look for the Documentary Gasland and Gasland 2

HydroFracking Basics: What is it? Why is it bad? What can YOU do?
Another Google Chat with Jim who is the Director of the Eastern Region for the Food and Water Watch. This was about the basics about Hydraulic Fracking dangers and awareness. Talking about waste water, and how it is contaminated with Radon along with other toxic chemicals. There is NO reasonable explanation why to continue doing this process and the fact the country is auctioning off water to gas companies is crazy!
Live in NJ come out to the rally on 6/20/13
Only an ostrich with its head in the sand would think that dumping fracking waste is a good idea.Unfortunately, NJ Governor Christie vetoed legislation to ban fracking waste dumping in NJ, turning a blind eye to the fact that fracking waste can contaminate drinking water and has been found to contain radioactive elements, heavy metals, and know carcinogens.Join us on June 20th to urge the Legislature to override Governor Christie’s veto and protect NJ where he has failed!The Assembly could vote on the bill held following the rally!! So we need all hands on deck to support protections from fracking waste.
The march will begin at 11:30 on the Back Lawn of the State House (Behind The State House – Intersection of Lafayette St. and Barracks St.)
The rally will begin at 12pm on the State House steps.

After 4 attempts Rawbert struck water! I got to help him put on the finishing touches to his new found water source for his vegan fruit homestead (Fruitstead). He goes over the process and what he found to be the best ways for where he was located(Southwest Florida). He can now be that much closer to being completely self sufficient. I learned a lot from hanging out with Rawbert and would of never thought I would think it would be possible to hand drill your own well. Glad I was proven wrong, because this saved him $3,000 if he had a company come out to drill it for him.
He plans on adding a Solar Electric pump to bring the water up from the well and into a reservoir. Also plans to get couple more on his property to help with watering the future Food Jungle he is designing. All I know is I cannot wait until I get back down there to check out how everything has come along when I am back in the area.
