FREEDOM OR ANARCHY,Campaign of Conscience

The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

"Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war." - - Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia - Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

Marijuana Industry Will Add $44 Billion To Nation’s Economy By 2020

Marijuana Industry Will Add $44 Billion To Nation’s Economy By 2020

Marijuana-Economy
The anti-drug war movement in the United States has benefited greatly from the pro-marijuana sentiment spreading from sea to shining sea, and the economy is also blooming amid changing views on the plant.
According to data recently released by Marijuana Business Daily, the U.S. cannabis industry will add $44 billion to the nation’s economy by 2020 — but only if the current legalization trend continues. The figures, Yahoo! Finance reports, aren’t tied only to marijuana sales. The estimates also include the amount of money circulating as a direct result of the marijuana transactions.
Yahoo! Finance explains how sales fared in states with legal marijuana:
As for actual sales of marijuana, that figure is estimated at $3.5 billion to $4.3 billion for this year in just states that have legalized medical and recreational use. That’s up from $3 billion to $3.4 billion last year, and in 2014 it was $2 billion to $2.4 billion.
When it comes to the overall yearly marijuana sales market across the country, including the black market, sales have reached the $30 to $45 billion mark. By 2020, MBD projects legal sales will reach anywhere from $6 to $11 billion. With how things are going, MBD believes the U.S. cannabis industry will see a considerable increase in earnings as a whole, over time.
According to the estimates, earnings tied to the legal businesses could jump from $14 to $17 billion in 2016 to about $24 to $44 billion in the following four years.
MBD explains “the estimates attempt to capture the industry’s overall contribution to the economy, encompassing everything from revenues generated by cannabis-related companies, licensing fees and taxes to marijuana tourism, employee spending, job creation and the impact on real estate prices in a community.”
“We’re witnessing the emergence of a business that is about to become a massive economic force,” MBD’s managing editor, Chris Walsh, explained. “These figures, which we deem conservative, show not only how important the industry already is to the U.S economy at large, but also how much more important it is about to become.”
While the MBD figures are promising, Yahoo! Finance argues federal law keeping marijuana illegal may impact these estimates greatly. “Of course, the cannabis revolution could be heavily affected by a change in political regime,” the Yahoo! Finance article claims. As federal prohibition continues tomake banking for marijuana businesses nearly impossible, there is a growing grassroots push to change the federal definition and scheduling of marijuana.
