Dear Friend of America's Survival,
With the nation focused on the opioid problem, and President Trump accusing China of pumping fentanyl into the veins of American victims through Mexico, another drug crisis has emerged on Trump's watch. “If this Commander-In-Chief doesn't step up and enforce marijuana laws, the damage to this nation and mankind will be irreparable." So declares anti-drug activist Roger Morgan, author of Soros: The Drug Lord. Pricking the Bubble of American Supremacy.
Morgan notes the elevated levels of mental illness, addiction, suicides, traffic deaths and the unseen mental and physical defects to babies and future generations from the use of mind-altering drugs. He adds, "America can never be great again if a major percentage of its young people are brain damaged, mentally ill, addicted or dead."
Even though President Trump regularly draws distinctions between his administration and that of his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, the Trump Administration is continuing Obama’s policy of not enforcing federal anti-marijuana laws. Colorado’s RINO Senator Cory Gardner is fighting for marijuana businesses and the “rights” of potheads and stoners. He took to the Senate floor to “Fight for States’ Rights and Protect States’ Legal Marijuana Operations.” He declared he would not "give up this fight” for marijuana.
One of the most vulnerable Republican Senators up for re-election in 2020, Gardner has abandoned conservatives in his state. Strangely, Trump has tweeted that Gardner "has done a fantastic job representing the people of Colorado." And look at this: "Colorado's Cory Gardner to be featured at Trump/GOP fundraiser in New York."
Trump is not only deferring to Gardner, he is embracing him. Perhaps there is a financial reason for this. As we point out in Permanent Revolution, "It turns out that Soros, the main funder of the drug legalization movement, is in business with Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is very liberal on marijuana and 'prison reform.' Together with libertarian billionaire Peter Thiel and Senator Cory Gardner, these forces want to pass a bill to protect the marijuana industry from federal anti-drug laws… Kushner is the husband to Ivanka Trump, son-in-law to President Donald Trump, and senior White House adviser. He is part owner of the real estate startup Cadre with George Soros and others. "
On top of this Trump family relationship with the moneybags behind the legal dope movement, there is a Russian connection to the emerging entity known as “Marijuana, Inc.” While marijuana in Russia is illegal, a Russian billionaire is backing a Massachusetts-based company, Curleaf, that is set to become the world's largest marijuana company. The Executive Chairman of the Board is a longstanding member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
These marijuana companies desperately want federal approval. Failing that, they want the Trump Administration to endorse a “states’ rights” measures that continues a federal hands-off approach.
Meanwhile, as Curleaf is being officially warned by the FDA not to make false health claims about various marijuana products, the firm is the target of a class action lawsuit regarding alleged violations of the federal securities laws. At the same time, a group known by the acronym CIVEL, for Cannabis Industry Victims Educating Litigators, is vowing “to make the marijuana industry legally accountable to their victims and our country.”
There is also a RICO case involving alleged false claims about a marijuana product that led to a truck driver losing his job when he tested positive for THC on a drug test. He claims he was told by the manufacturer that a CBD product had no THC. See the case, Horn v Medical Marijuana, 15-CV-701-FPG.
In a personal letter to the president, Roger Morgan writes that Director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) Jim Carroll and his associate, Anne Hazlett, have been quoted as saying marijuana is a “state’s rights” issue. “That would effectively legalize marijuana, a drug that alone has the potential to destroy this nation,” Morgan asserts. “If done without your knowledge, they should be removed from office. More likely, based on public comments you have made to Senator Gardner and others, they were probably following your directions. If so, you personally bear the responsibility for betraying the American people.”
He adds, “Today’s highly potent pot is a gateway to other drugs that kill by overdose. But alone it can cause psychotic breaks leading to violence and mass murders. It causes brain damage and loss of IQ, mental illness, addiction, suicides, traffic deaths, myriad physical harms, and DNA damage which will affect future generations.”
