The lawsuit alleges they violated federal and state laws related to competition and consumer protection.

On the other hand, it's troubling that an assistant attorney general of any U.S. state has apparently never heard of Standard Oil.

QuoteI've been thinking quite a bit about things lately. Any anons here know that transgenderism is being pushed by the deep state. Note the depictions of Baphomet, engendering both male and female attributes, and how important it seems for [[[them]]] to destroy traditional gender roles.Now, any anons here that are well versed in ganja biology know that cannabis plants have two sexes. Delving deeper, we find that there is a survival trait within the cannabis plant that allows for the asexual propagation of genetic material.If a female plant is isolated from potential mates, production of the medically active compounds is stimulated, the sticky resins and oils end up coating the bud in hopes of increasing chances of collecting pollen from a male plant. Here is where things get crazy, take your isolated female and add environmental stresses (physical damage, uneven photoperiods, stress inducing chemical compounds, etc.) and the plant decides that the only way to ensure genetic propagation is to grow male sex organs, and self propagate, effectively becoming a self-fertilzing hermaphrodite. Any offspring produced by the hermaphrodite plant will be guaranteed female, with a propensity toward hermaphroditism.Now, lets think for a moment. Chemtrails, vaccines, bisphenol-a(BPA, a synthetic estrogen used as a clarifying agent in plastics, also found in thermal activated receipt paper), the entire transgender movement, pharmaceutical side effects. Are [[[they]]] trying to intentionally stress the population to create an easily controllable, hermaphroditic slave population?
QuoteGruber believes greater scientific engagement with the CBD phenomenon is as important as more careful regulation. â€œPeople have been using cannabis forever,â€ she told me. â€œThe question now is, How do we as scientists catch up?â€

Quote from: albrecht on May 18, 2019, 06:39:58 PM20 years ago, or about that? There was a somewhat interesting book that was produced by the Open Societies Institute advocating marijuana legalization and so on. Did the usual talking points, and I assume valid, about research studies in crime, societal harm, and whatnot between countries that had decriminalized or legalized vs others (of course ignoring MANY other demographic factors.) But I noticed that Soros made the OSF (then OSI) and at the same time was trying to break currencies and such stuff. And so thought- "what is his motivation." Profit? Maybe, there is money in drugs. But as a billionaire already vested in more lucrative, and legal, situations why promote this? I don't know. Make a populace more docile? Often the arguments are "you don't see someone stoned fighting" which, to me, is a ridiculous argument. ThoughtI'm for legalizing, but mainly to take crime off it, a bit, and free choice of an adult to do whatever if not harming others- but still suspect about the politics of the deal. Seem to be 'pushed' by some and note how certain interests try to piggy-back on the legalize campaigns.

QuoteWithout knowing they were going into a breeding program, my assumption was 'Why would I not want my genetics in the public realm?'"he says. "Now, they have a leg up on all of us. They can pop 10,000 seeds, test the leaves within days of them sprouting, and look for the genetic data that we've given them. They can do in a matter of weeks what takes me nine months."
QuoteAmong the more serious allegations against Ayers was that in 2013, without a court order, she destroyed 10 pounds of marijuana taken into evidence. The sack of marijuana was held in storage in the same building as the task forceâ€™s offices for a pending case led by one of her agents against a gang called the Viet Mafia.When confronted by the task force agent who had booked the marijuana into evidence, Ayers told him that it smelled, â€œand there was fliesâ€ and mold on it. According to several subordinates later interviewed by DOJ investigators, Ayers then suggested that he replace the destroyed evidence with marijuana confiscated in a separate case.In an interview with investigators, the former task force agent whose marijuana evidence was destroyed said he was â€œconcerned, obviously, for the integrity of the case.â€ He told investigators that Ayersâ€™s suggestion that he swap evidence from a different case concerned other task force members. â€œWhen she said, â€˜Hey, donâ€™t we have some marijuana from somewhere else? Why donâ€™t you just grab some from there for your sample?â€™ basically, the whole group of people, myself included, we all basically just stopped what we were doing and just stared at her, like, I canâ€™t really believe you just said that,â€ the former task force agent told investigators. He said he had known and worked with Ayers for more than six years.In August 2015, Ayers was fired for lying during the first investigation. In response to an email from The Appeal seeking more information about the case, the attorney generalâ€™s press office wrote that Ayers appealed her termination but ultimately resigned as part of a settlement and that she no longer works for the Department of Justice."
