This petition is to get a pro MJ Constitutional amendment on the ballot. Understand that the psychopathic criminals in Jefferson city have gutted, and bastardized this amendment, but it is a step in the right direction, to gain food and medical liberty in the police state of Missouri. ~MFP
The Missouri Marijuana Legalization Movement (MMLM) has been working diligently to put together an initiative petition for 100 percent legalization of cannabis in Missouri. The Secretary of State has approved a petition for circulation that will put that question in front of the voters of Missouri on Nov. 8, 2018. MMLM currently has over 67,000 members and is growing daily, with more than 2,000 registered volunteer petitioners.
The revolutionary approach to legalization of cannabis taken by MMLM sends a strong message, not only to the voters of Missouri, but to all Americans collectively. The benefits of cannabis in all its forms have been repressed through misinformation by large corporations for decades, simply to allow those entities to line their pockets and increase their profits. This is an abomination perpetrated on everyone in our great nation.
“The benefits provided by cannabis in all its forms will revolutionize so many industries and become a major windfall for Missourians,” said Timothy Gilio the driving force behind the MMLM. “From bio-diesel that can eliminate our dependency on foreign oil, paper products that can help us reverse deforestation worldwide, medical applications that will reduce costs to patients and be safer than current drugs like opioids, to construction materials and a host of other applications.”
Why should someone sign this petition for 100 percent legalization of cannabis? There are numerous reasons to sign it, and literally zero reasons not to sign it. The human rights issue alone should be enough for any sane person to sign. We put people in prison for anywhere from decades to life for possession of a plant that has more benefits than any other plant on this planet. Why? Because our government, our elected officials who are lining their pockets with contributions from pharmaceutical companies, say we should. Those same pharmaceutical companies are pocketing billions of dollars in profits selling poison to people. Cannabis would replace so many drugs that they realize their profits would plummet, so they pay big bucks to lobby our elected representatives to keep it illegal.
People are dying by the droves daily from using opioids, which are legal. People are dying by the tens of thousands from alcohol and tobacco use, which are also legal. No one has ever died from using cannabis. Not one person. Ever. Keeping cannabis illegal is the most illogical thing this country has ever done. Get the facts. Educate yourself. Stop believing the lies that have created this stigma surrounding cannabis. We the people need to take back our rights to this plant.
“I don’t want to use cannabis,” you might say. Fine. Why prevent others from getting the cannabis they need for medicine? I don’t drink alcohol, but I certainly don’t want to prevent you from drinking alcohol, or smoking cigarettes, even though it is probably going to kill you too. MMLM is not asking anyone to use cannabis if they don’t want to. All we are asking is that you help us stop the 80-year prohibition on a plant that can help so many people. V Original story

Warrant-less searches and seizures, surveillance of your electronic communications, PDMP, REAL ID, RFID – the 4th Amendment is under assault…
The Bill of Rights in the Constitution is intended to be a “Hands Off” list of rights the People declared that government is not allowed to take away by law or rules. Among the most dear to the Founding Fathers was the right to be secure in your person, places, and effects from unreasonable searches and seizures.
The “Reasonable” threshold was only met in their eyes by a particularized search warrant issued by a judge upon probable cause that a law had been broken. It was their intent that without such a warrant that applied to only one specific situation, the government could not seize or search you.
Unfortunately, those founding principles have been eroding away…
History of the 4th Amendment
The founding generation had good cause to hold the 4th Amendment principles near and dear. Their heritage was replete with battles against authoritarianism and an abusive legal system at least as far back as 9th century King Alfred, who secured for their ancestors the right to a jury of their peers when hauled before a court.
In the decades before the war for American Independence, King George’s men were issuing “writs of assistance” and “general warrants”, which would give officials the “legal” power to search homes and businesses in an effort to enforce the many mercantilistic laws, like the Navigation Acts, Excise Act, Molasses Act and Stamp Act – oppression that so stifled the free market and liberty, in general.
Even the U.S. Supreme Court once respected the origins of the 4th Amendment. “[T]he Fourth
Amendment’s commands grew in large measure out of the colonists’ experience with the writs of assistance. . . [that] granted sweeping power to customs officials and other agents of the King to search at large for smuggled goods.” UnitedStates v. Chadwick, 433 U. S. 1, 7-8 (1977).
4th Amendment Is Being “Legislated Away”
The Bill of Rights is meaningless if bureaucrats and politicians can make rules and laws that trump its protections.
Unfortunately, that is exactly what is happening today. A series of court opinions have claimed that 4th Amendment protections don’t fully apply to what they call “pervasively regulated businesses”, and that can even include a residential apartment.
That means the government can begin to regulate some activity or business that has never before been regulated and by such fiat loose itself from the chains of the 4th Amendment.
Our Win in Federal Court Advances 4th Amendment
A win in the 8th federal circuit Court of Appeals Monday will help draw a line in the sand against the forces eroding what was one of the rights most dear to the Founding Fathers.
It all started on June 3, 2013 while I was traveling to the local rock quarry to get some chat for my daughter’s chicken coop. A Highway Patrol trooper pulled me over to do a roadside inspection of my large farm dump truck, even though he had not observed me breaking any law and had no suspicion of breaking any law.
My truck had been inspected that morning by an official inspection station that was sanctioned by the Highway Patrol.
I did exactly what Sam Adam or Patrick Henry would have done – I denied consent to the search.
Fortunately, the Trooper did not act like many a Redcoat would have – instead of bayoneting me, he politely and professionally issued me a citation. I fought it in Phelps County Court, where Judge Ron White agreed with me that the state law allowing troopers to make such suspicion-less, warrant-less stops was, in his words, “offensive.”
Although I won in court that day, there was no appeal that could be used as a precedent to help other people.
That’s where Missouri’s Liberty Law Firm, the Freedom Center of Missouri, enters the story. The Freedom Center’s director of litigation, Dave Roland, filed a civil lawsuit in federal court on my behalf. We’re asking for $1 in damages and a declaratory judgment that Missouri’s practice of the sort of suspicion-less, warrant-less searches they tried on me are unconstitutional.
Lost the First Round, but Won the Second
At the federal circuit court level, the judge ruled against us, but a panel of judge at the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the lower court judge, in part, and ordered him to reconsider the case. The case is still developing, but at this stage it looks like we won’t be able to protect common carrier truckers (because I’m not one and don’t have standing), but we have a very good chance of protecting other folks, like farmers, who transport goods in commercial vehicles.
Join Us On the Legal Battle Field for Liberty!
The Freedom Center of Missouri is planning an expansion that will enable them to take on more cases like this 4th Amendment case. Tomorrow (Thursday, Aug. 10), you have the rare opportunity to meet with Scott Bullock, the president of the Institute for Justice, the leading national liberty based public interest law-firm.
Scott will be explaining the history and future of public interest law and how you can help.
I’ll be at both the St. Louis event at noon and the 6:30 event in Kansas City. I hope to see you there!
Event: Meeting and discussion with Scott Bullock, president of the Institute for Justice about the role public interest law firms play keeping government in check and preserving liberty. This is also an opportunity to learn about and support Missouri’s corollary to the Institute for Justice, the Freedom Center of Missouri.
Date: August 10 (Thursday)

Global warming is one of the most heated debates of our time, because it involves government policy that will profoundly affect our lives forever more. The political, economic, and social consequences of being wrong are grim beyond words. You have heard from many sources that global warming is real and that only crackpots think otherwise. Now it is time to hear the other side.
If you are not already involved in trying to make the world a better, freer place, “property rights” is a good place to start. ~MFP
There will also be a discussion of the upcoming Soldiers and Sailors Reunion in Mammoth Spring and taxes in Oregon County. Anyone interested in property rights, constitutional rights, self reliance and homesteading is invited to attend, and many members come early to enjoy the fine food at Fred’s.
