The Big Lie: That marijuana has no medical benefits or socially 
redeeming value. How long must this big lie go on? The big lie is 
perpetuated by politicians, lobbyists and advertisers who are paid 
big bucks by beer breweries, liquor and tobacco industries, by the 
pharmaceutical industry, by the law-enforcement and prison 
industries, by members of the American Bar Association and American 
Medical Association, Democratic and Republican National Committees 
and by organized religions throughout the world.

The bottom line is to protect the cash flow to all of these 
organizations that is generated by the legislation that declares 
cannabis illegal. The DEA and organized crime syndicates are not the 
only ones who reap great cash benefits from keeping marijuana 
illegal. Other nations are influenced by cash incentives to go along 
with the big lie.

The cash flow to all of these entities comes indirectly from the 
pockets and purses of every citizen on the planet.

What to do about it? Stop the big lie! It has gone on for too long. 
Tell the truth. Change these ridiculous and inhumane laws. Every 
single citizen can take some action.

Do it now! Speak out! Vote out!
