NYPD Cop Plotted Murder-for-Hire
"Valerie Cincinnati paid her boyfriend. Seven thousand dollars to hire a hit man and kill his teenage daughter and her husband but she had no choice. What was she supposed to do? Try and take them out herself. She was in New York City. Police officer that's a good way to get yourself fired or at least on desk duty but that was twenty nineteen and she's had to change apart since then after folding prison laundry for a year last month she really really tried to be released on bail using the corona virus as an excuse to get back in front of a judge because too but the judge had good reason to roll his eyes and refuse in the words of the. Us Attorney in Brooklyn. The evidence in this case is overwhelming. Hey I'm amy and every Sunday Wednesday. Were here recapping. The story behind a true crime headline so. Let's get to it Valerie. Cincinnati paid her boyfriend seven thousand dollars to hire a Hitman and kill his teenage daughter and her husband. Did you get that because I had to read it a few times before? I believe what I was saying. She paid her boyfriend to have her ex husband killed because she was deep into a custody dispute with him over their son and she wanted him dead so she didn't have to share her. Nypd pension or her son with him and she was paying her boyfriend to have her boyfriend zone. Fifteen year old daughter killed because she was getting in the way. What offering to pay for your boyfriend to have his own daughter killed. Seems like a real dating. Don't but apparently Valerie thought he'd be into the idea. He was not because after she outlined the plant he right away immediately told the feds started wearing a wire when he was with her allegedly because her trial hasn't started yet but allegedly her boyfriend. John Rubel took Valerie seven grand and used it to buy five ounces of gold coins to pay the Hitman gold coins. Remember the days when you could just hand hitman cash and they do the job now you got to exchange the money for magic beans and give them those. It's just it's so complicated but Valerie says she was just giving John the money to buy gold coins. What's the problem? But let's just say that the cops the better the other cops that they're right and Valerie was using those gold coins to buy a couple of murders which did not happen by the way everyone save except Valerie. She should drop the soap in the shower anytime soon but she was trying to hire a contractor to kill. These people does not sound like she was very easy to work for according to court documents when she was told the Hitman was at her ex-husband's office in Long Island said he should be killed in the hood or the ghetto instead so it would not look suspicious and when she learned. This hitman didn't WanNA murder teenage daughter near her school. She said runner the F over. How about that K- and then when a few weeks went by and her husband and this poor teenage girl weren't dead. She asked the obvious question. Why was this whole murder-for-hire thing taking so long but then cheap further micromanage the process by telling her boyfriend to have the Hitman kill the girl his daughter over the weekend and then wait a week or a month to kill her husband so it wouldn't look suspicious and she should know because she's a police officer a police officer at this point law enforcement had had enough and they decided to give her what she wanted? A dead husband stood in my car glass on the floor and all over me and had me hunch over into the peasants and it's a picture that was that like Earth craziest experience. Yeah after she saw the pictures and the police told her he was dead. Her boyfriend recorded her discussing what her fake alibi could be if she was questioned about it. If these allegations proved to be true in the yearbook this girl would definitely be voted most likely to be arrested for being dirty cop kind of a not so smart super dirty cop at that among other damning Internet searches. She Google the phrase. If your ex dies do you have to share your whole pension? She might as well been googling. Dump things criminals due to get themselves convicted. She was a twelve year veteran of the NYPD. Working as a domestic violence officer in Queens. And that's where she met her boyfriend John Baruba in two thousand seventeen while she was working case. He's been called her sugar daddy in the press. Now he was fifty four. She was thirty four at the time and he paid her and Bill. So yeah yeah that tracks but then he got her suspended when he reported to internal affairs that she was hanging out at his house when she was supposed to be on duty protecting serving but then they got back together. Their relationship is not surprisingly described as volatile. Of course Jon is an exactly choirboy either. He allegedly threatened to shoot a guy over fifty four thousand dollar diamond ring in January twenty nineteen and was bragging about supposed ties he had to the Gambino Crime Family. He was also very proud of his friendships. With a couple of the actors who played mobster on the Sopranos so for Guy who seemed to be such a mobster wannabe. How ironic is it? That the first thing he did was drop a dime on his girlfriend. Of course if you ask Valerie's family they believe it was John who set the whole thing up to framer and speaking of her family at the time. She was arrested. Her brother was an FBI agent two months after she was arrested he committed suicide but again she insists she's innocent. Prosecutors say Valerie did her best to try and get rid of the evidence they believe. She destroyed to cell phones and deleted texts. But even without those phones. It's pretty hard to argue with wire. Tape recordings isn't it does not look great for you girl. Her trial was supposed to start on April twentieth. But it's been postponed while her legal team. Sifts through thousands of pages of text and calls between her her boyfriend and her ex-husband if she's convicted. She faces ten years for each of the two attempted murder for hire accounts and twenty years for obstruction of justice. I have a feeling this is going to be it for

"By the early Nineteen Seventies Carlo. Gambino was at the height of his career. He was considered sitter to have more control of New York City than the mayor himself. Cool and calculating Carlo always seemed to stay ahead of his enemies both within law enforcement and in the underworld but as he was recovering from a heart attack his commitment to that careful control was tested. Abutting being opportunity forced him to reconsider one of his central career-long policies. When Carlo took the reins of his family he warned his members against selling drugs? It brought too much attention from law enforcement. So when acting genovese crime boss Tommy Ryan Approach Carlo to broker a multimillion in dollar drug deal. It seemed like an absurd ask. Did he really think that he could convince the boss of all bosses to change his mind about about selling drugs. Tommy needed four million dollars to take part in a deal with one of the biggest narcotics dealers in the US Lewis sedillo pillow. Tommy didn't have that amount of cash but Carlo Gambino did. We don't exactly know what Tommy said. Perhaps perhaps he took advantage of Carlos old age or his recent heart attack but whatever he did seem to work. Carlo agreed to front him the money Tommy promised assure return on Carlos Investment but before the prophets could come through the government arrested narcotics addicts dealer Louis Sedillo in the process. They confiscated the drugs and the money. Carlos cash was now in government custody when Carlo Approach Tommy about his missing for million dollars. The story goes Tommy's response was to literally turn his pockets. Inside died out indicating he was completely broke. This answer didn't satisfy Carlo on July sixteenth. Nineteen seventy you too at approximately one o'clock in the morning Tommy Ryan was leaving his girlfriend's apartment in Brooklyn when gunfire rang out. Tommy died on the spot. No one was ever arrested for his murder. Even with his fragile Health Carlos firm hand hand didn't waver but in the mafia world when a door to one problem closes another one inevitably opens opens in December nineteen seventy-two of vans started parking on Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn just outside Carlos residents the surveillance. Valence man was a combined effort of the FBI and the NYPD's Organized Crime Control Bureau. The mob squad had found a way to plant cameras. Russia's microphones and wiretaps inside Carlos. Home there twenty. Four hour surveillance recorded just about every corner of his house but even still the feds couldn't get anything useful. That's because Carlo used a combination of silent gestures and coded language edge when discussing his affairs on one occasion. They recorded an entire meeting. Were the only thing said was frog. Legs the arrest. The tape was empty. Clearly the surveillance van didn't make it past the boss of all bosses to thwart the feds even further further. He decided it was time to do a little restructuring. He named Jonny L. O.. Neil Della Croce and his cousin and brother in Law Paul Castellano. Oh as dual under bosses della Croce would handle the dirty work while Castellano would oversee white-collar crimes though Carlo maintained tamed. A strong hand over the whole operation. The move created more distance between him and his family's crimes in early nineteen seventy-three. The three Carlo learned that his twenty nine year old nephew. Manny had been kidnapped James Mc Granny the leader of the kidnapping crew had fallen fallen into debt with the Gambino family having successfully kidnapped and ransomed mafia captain a year before mcbrayer. He thought he could use the same tactic tactic. Again MC Brittany demanded three hundred fifty thousand dollars from Carlo. If he didn't pay up they would kill his nephew. Few Carlo claimed you only come up with forty thousand dollars bud. mcbrayer knee and his crew weren't willing to negotiate. Soon after Carlos was counteroffer Manny's empty car was found at the Newark Airport later. His dead body was found posed and buried in a sitting position in a dump up in New Jersey between the death of his nephew and his poor health. Carlo was starting to lose his grip. He became a recluse uncharacteristically terrifically boarding himself up in his Brooklyn House. He couldn't let his nephew's death go unpunished Carlo. Oh enlisted his underboss Neil della Croce and rising mobster John Gotti to deal out justice on May twenty second nineteen seventy-three Guardian a few other Gambino men shot and killed Mc Brittany while he was drinking at a Staten Island bar justice for Manny. Gambino's death F- was finally served as the seventies ruled on Carlos. Health continued to deteriorate while his primary residence was a modest modest house in Brooklyn he also kept a home in Massapequa on Long Island he began spending more time there as his health declined. The two story brick house surrounded by a low fence and marble statues on the front lawn set at the end of Kota sack overlooking the great south be. His bodyguard lived in the house next door.

Not only did they have mobsters keeping the area secure but they also had the constant surveillance of police and federal agents keeping an eye on Carlo by nineteen seventy five the seventy-three-year-old Carlo knew do. He wasn't long for this world. It was time to name his successor. Paul Castellano was not only one of Carlos primary under bosses but he was also his brother in law and cousin. Castellano was the one who picked Carlo up from the dock when he landed in America decades before four as underboss Castellano handled the family's white collar crimes like union racketeering solid and toxic waste disposal and wire wire fraud. The other option was Neil Della Croce the CO underboss. Neil held the reins over the more hands on activities. He's like contract killing loansharking gambling. Extortion hijacking and robbery. This power structure proved effective and confusing for the FBI. They couldn't be sure who was the official next in command but neal was generally considered the expected heir apparent Carlo Carlo thought differently he ultimately selected Paul instead. The surprising choice spoke to his desire to keep the power in his own family family blood the following year the succession plan took effect Carlo. Gambino spent the evening of Thursday October Tober Fourteenth nineteen seventy six watching the New York Yankees game at his waterfront house. In Massapequa by the time the game ended the Yankees. He's had squeaked out a victory over the Kansas city royals.

He continued to spearhead the crime syndicates. More white collar activities like embezzlement and construction schemes but his leadership approach. Put the mob on shaky ground. Neil Della Croce stayed on as Paul's alls underboss before his death. Carlo gave Neil the reins of all the Manhattan rackets under his control but despite the gift neal was thoroughly unhappy he felt he should have been named boss instead of Paul Meals loyalists toe the line. But only for so long. In Nineteen eighty-five Paul Castellano was assassinated. By Neal's protege and one of cast Alana's biggest critics John Gotti with Godley now at the head of the Gambino family.

Gambino showed mercy to his longtime ally Joseph Bonanno even after he tried to assassinate him but his acts of benevolence didn't earn him any points from the police in September nineteen sixty six. The sixty four four-year-old Carlo was meeting with top Mafia leaders from New York and New Orleans at the Stella Restaurant in Queens for more than a year Carlos. Friend Tommy Hello. Casey had been hospitalized with poor health and it was time to discuss the distribution of his operations as the mob bosses aiden talked liked. The police raided the restaurant and broke up the meeting. No one was arrested this time but the pressure was on the next year. The government tried a different tactic to get Carlo off. The streets. Carlo had entered the United States illegally and in the decade since he had never become a citizen the feds issued a deportation order but it wasn't implemented. It's believed that Carlo bribed bribed two. US senators to keep his problem at bay even with immigration services knocking at his door. Carlo kept traveling around around the. US hobnobbing with all the big celebrities on August second nineteen sixty seven. He was seen at the desert in Las Vegas from the VIP Lounge. He watched a performance by Frank Sinatra. Sammy Davis Junior Dean Martin. I'm Peter Lawford and Joey bishop the singer celebrities known as the rat. Pack Carlo allegedly gave each of the performers. A ten thousand dollar dollar tip. He and his cousin. Paul Castellano even snapped a picture with Sinatra but nineteen sixty seven wasn't all celebration aberration that same summer Carlos friend and partner. Tommy Lucchese finally lost his battle with a brain tumor. He died at home in Long Island. Carlo arranged the funeral which was attended by over a thousand mourners including politicians judges police officers mobsters and hit men with original commission members. Tommy Lucchese and Joe Bonanno both Gone Carlo was fully propelled all to the title of Capo. Tutti Capi or boss of all bosses though the title had been scrapped years before Carlos assent resurrected the name and status. There was no higher honor than this but the title didn't come without its share of consequences quences the biggest of course being a larger target on his back for the federal government nailing down. The boss of all bosses would be career defining success for decades the FBI tried everything they could to get Carlo all to no avail but in March one thousand nine hundred seventy their efforts started to pay off the sixty eight year. Old Carlo was strolling down a Brooklyn Street when he was suddenly surrounded rounded by FBI agents NYPD. He was arrested and charged with masterminding scheme to steal. Several million in cash from an armored truck company in the Bronx Korla was indicted for the crime but due to lack of evidence the feds were forced to drop the case the FBI regrouped and later that year. They arrested Carlo again. This time for masterminding a burglary ring as had become custom mm-hmm when the agents showed up at his home Carlo treated them as his guests offering them coffee and dessert he figured it would all work out and he was right right once again. The evidence was slim and Carlo managed to walk free. What helped Carlo dodged? The law was his management style. He emphasized control and discretion mainly to avoid garnering the attention of the government even though the FBI knew about about Carlos work they were always a hairsbreadth away from finding enough evidence for a conviction but not everyone in the mafia took the same careful we approved in. The results proved violent by nineteen. Seventy Joe Colombo had been running his family for roughly eight years. There's ever since he'd helped uncover Bonano's assassination plot and in that time Colombo had managed to bring peace and stability to his Brooklyn based family. But we're Carlo. Preferred a low key approach Colombo felt very differently. He became well known outside of the mob world especially for his work in promoting civil rights for Italian Americans in the spring of Nineteen Seventy Colombo came to believe his son was being harassed by the FBI after the younger Colombo was arrested on conspiracy. Charges Colombo's response was to pick it it outside the FBI's Manhattan office. He very vocally criticized the media and the bureau railing against what he called a conspiracy Baresi against Italian people. Carlo didn't like this. One Colombo started planning his second annual Italian American unity rally in Nineteen seventy-one. The boss of all bosses advised him to stop drawing so much attention to himself. Colombo allegedly responded wanded by spitting in his face but Carlo had the final word in the matter. He silenced Colombo with three bullets during the very a unity rally. He'd arranged Colombo's survived the assassination attempt. But he was effectively out of commission. mm-hmm speculation runs high as to how involved Carlo was in the hit other theories pen rival. Gangs Crazy Joe. Gallo was the mastermind regardless regardless of. Who really was behind the shooting? Joe Colombo was no longer a problem for Carlo but the federal government was on Monday November. Remember I nineteen seventy-one Immigration and Naturalization Service agents served Carlo with a notification that he was being deported the US Supreme in court had finally upheld the order from several years earlier. I N S had actually tried to deport Carlo Multiple Times before this but their plans always fell through either because of Carlos political influence or because of conveniently timed health issues. Is that landed him in the hospital on top of that. Italy was reluctant to cooperate. They didn't want the notorious criminal in their country anymore within the US did but when the Italian government finally agreed to a travel authorization the boss of all bosses was served his notice he would would be sent back to Italy on Friday November fifth on the same day. The news was delivered. Carlos Attorney asked for a stay of the deportation order are once again contending. That Carlo was too sickly to travel likely story. They thought two days later Carlos lawyer tried again claiming he'd received a call from Carlos family that his client was in a bad way. Carlo had been rushed to Victory Memorial Hospital in Brooklyn and was on Oxygen Wiley Carlo had conveniently suffered a heart attack. Ns was incensed. They insisted assisted that the. US Public Health Service. Give him a complete physical exam of their own. The government was shocked. When cardiologists confirmed that Carlos heart incident incident was genuine? They determined that Carlo actually was unfit to travel as his lawyer. Doctor had asserted once again Carlo. Gambino was allowed to remain in the country and just in time to see his life story make its way to the Silver Screen Green on March Twenty Fourth Nineteen seventy-two Francis Ford Coppola's The godfather premiered and became immediate classic based on the best selling book by Mario Puzo. The Godfather told the story of a Mafia bosses son who is suddenly certainly thrown into the crime world. He wants swore off the Titular Godfather. Don Vito Corleone was inspired by several different real l. mob bosses and Carlo. Gambino was among them like Carlo. corleones was from Sicily and emigrated to the United States alone own as a young man. CORLEONES was also notable for being quiet taking a non flashy approach and emphasizing respect. Few works have influenced pop. Culture's perception of the Mafia more than the Godfather and Carlos early history known only to those was closest to him was now suddenly at the center of a cultural phenomenon. But is the movie made waves around the world.

But even his best efforts couldn't stop the government from prying into his affairs for years the FBI EH buried its head in the sand about the existence of organized crime in the United States. Most government officials refused to believe there was a mafia presence in the country. Not at all however after the arrests of over sixty mobsters at the nineteen fifty seven Appalachian Meeting J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI couldn't ignore the threat. The Mafia posed to national security despite uncovering who Karla was and what he did for a living getting getting to him was proving impossible. Attorney General Robert. F Kennedy began to ramp up the Justice Department's efforts to bring down organized crime but he was getting little traction one of the biggest obstacles they faced. No one was willing to talk one of the key. Principles in the Mafia via was silence Omerta for decades.

Joseph Joe Bananas Bonanno Head of the Banana Crime family was one of them.

An old friend who had view allies left Carlo decided to give him one last chance to retire alive. But bonano didn't comply in fact. Even after the order came down. He kept trying to expand his racquet into other cities. A representative of the commission said Bonano took up too too much space in the air a Sicilian proverb that spoke to bananas arrogance to straighten that out in October. Nineteen sixty four. The commissions nations sent a pair of buffalo gangsters to kidnap him banana was held captive in upstate. New York and he wasn't released until Carlo was sure you're he learned his lesson and would finally retire in peace but they may have been a little too trusting. As soon as banana was released east. He sent out a message to his enemies that for every one of his men that were killed by the commission's families he would retaliate by hitting one of their leaders. This forced Carlo and the commission to really up their demand that bonano retire either. Dead or alive alive. Bananas remaining view beleaguered followers were inspired by his stubborn defiance. But that sense of pride was suddenly dashed win. Bananas suffered a heart attack. The Hill setback forced him to take the offer to retire. He moved to Tucson Arizona leaving his broken in crime family behind. Carlos stood victorious and gained even more respect from the commission. His handling of the Bonano's no no situation gave him the reputation of being merciful but the federal government looked at him differently.

Now back to the story even before arriving in New York in nineteen twenty one Carlo Gambino was already highly involved in mafia life working as a contract killer back in Sicily recognizable by his beak like nose and Puckish Grin. The unassuming gangster instilled fear even during his early days in the mob and once he was stateside ride Carlo quickly moved up the ranks by one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. When Carla was twenty seven years old the tension between his his crew leader Joe the boss Ria and the recently arrived Salvatore? Martin Zano reached a fevered peak. This ushered in what was known because the Castelo War Joe The boss enlisted some of the top mafia men on his crew including Carlos Friends Luchino Albert Anesthesia. And Vito genovese well connected Jewish gangsters Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegel. We'll also sided with him. Joe The boss didn't really like doing business with non Sicilians so his patience was thin with the men from mainland Italy. Like lucky and veto these younger men bided their time in the host. Joe The boss and Marin Zano just knock each other off whence they did the new blood could take control. The war raged on for nearly four years with constant assassinations and violence. Dozens dozens of mobsters were left dead on the New York City streets. The ones who survived or constantly looking over their shoulders afraid they would be next Ext.. The prolonged war also cut into profits on both sides of the fight this allow Jewish and Irish crime bosses to get footholds and industries. The Italian in March group said once firmly controlled the razor-sharp criminals savvy. Carlo saw an opportunity to end this war before it undercut any more of their enterprises sensing that he was on the losing side of the battle he approached their rival Salvatore. Marin Zano in secret Carlo offered to jump tomorrow John Aside and the Sicilian boss readily welcomed a fellow monster from Palermo. When Carlo flipped flipped he brought Lucky Albert anesthesia and several other friends with them but Marin Zano set the price for their admission if the men wanted into work with him they would have to do away with Joe the boss once and for all on April Fifteenth Nineteen Eighteen Thirty One lucky lured joe the boss to an Italian restaurant in Coney Island Brookland after they were seated? Lucky excused himself to the restroom. That's when anesthesia and a band of killers burst through the restaurants front door. They pumped bullets into Joe. The boss leaving him dead Carlo and crew brought a violent end to the four years of the Castel as a war immediately. The actor Joe the boss's assassination Marin Zano called a meeting of all the top mafiosos in New York City reportedly over five hundred men gathered in a warehouse in the Bronx. Maranzano told the mobsters to leave behind whatever happened in the past. There would be no more hatred tread between their factions. It was time to forgive and forget Salvatori carved out five distinct families each with a boss and under boss. The boss served as the head of the enterprise while the UNDERBOSS was his second in command often serving as a counselor or advisor under these top two men each family would have captains who would serve as middle management over the rest of the men called soldiers the five bosses Marin Zano named were lucky Luchino. Tommy Lucozzi Joe Bonanno Joe Prophecy. And Vincent Mangano Gano Albert Anesthesia was designated as Mangano underboss and the twenty nine year old Carlo. Gambino was named a captain in in the same family and of course Marne Zano declared himself boss of all bosses the overseer of all five families. Emily's the younger mobsters went along with Marzano's plans but they didn't so much like his self proclaimed position so just five months after that meeting. Lucky Luciano hired four killers to bulldoze their way into mearns on his office and shoot shoot him. Dead Lucky called the bosses of the other four families to tell them Salvatore had been eliminated and with him went the title of boss of all bosses instead they'd be ruled by a nationwide collective called the commission. Lucky we saw the commission as a way to stem conflicts and avoid another castle Moore as a war. The Mafia would be controlled by a council of the leaders from all all five families. Instead of relying on violence they could resolve their disputes through diplomacy and discussion. The ever business like Carlo are low. Gambino thrived in this reborn Mafia. He became a top earner in the Mangano family and in the mob world with with money comes Prestige Carlos. Main areas of interest were loansharking illegal gambling and collecting acting protection money from area merchants when the volts did act was repealed in nineteen thirty three Carlos on another opportunity to fill his pockets goods by cashing in on the now legal booze industry in the last days of prohibition Carlos scooped up as many illegal liquor stills bills as he could get his hands on from New York all the way to Maryland when prohibition ended the price of alcohol skyrocketed and Carlo owned the largest illegal liquor distribution system on the east coast. Of course he was still producing his alcohol under the table and not paying taxes so Carlo could easily undercut prices set by legal distributors. The gangster made himself in the Mangano Crime family a fortune by the mid nineteen thirties and part of Carlos proceeds went to evading the law. He was arrested several times in Nineteen nineteen thirty seven and nineteen thirty eight but was always able to pay his way out but in nineteen thirty nine his luck finally ran out on May twenty third nineteen thirty nine. Carlo was convicted for conspiracy to defraud the United States liquor taxes. The thirty six year old was in order to pay a fine of two thousand five hundred dollars and sentenced to twenty two months in a Pennsylvania prison. When Carlo walked free again he went right back back to crime turning his attention to government issued ration stamps as the United States anticipated entering World War Two the government began issuing ration stamps in August nineteen forty one without these stamps? You couldn't buy limited resources like sugar meat and gas ask and some big spenders would pay through the nose to get more than their fair share. Carlo learned that the ration stamps stamps were being held involves on an upper floor of the office of Price Administration. It would take his best safe crackers and second-story men but Carlo Gambino was going to get his hands on them. Coming up. Carlo breaks into a government vault and into a new criminal industry. Now back to the story the softspoken but ruthless Carlo. Gambino had his hands in a variety of mob operations ranging from liquor distribution bution to gambling to robbery after serving time for tax evasion in nineteen thirty seven. Carlo kept a low profile while still title ramping up his criminal activities. When Carlo found out that ration stamps were being kept in vaults at the office of price administration he has to plot up to steal them? He put together a team of expert burglars and they hatched a plan to break in through the upper floor windows crack the safe and grab the stamps before anyone noticed they were there. The elaborate scheme was successful is guys walked away with hundreds two thousand of ration stamps. Carlo then turned around and sold the stamps on the black market at bargain prices. After that robbery the government started hiding the ration stamps in banks to better protect them from another break in but Carlo figured out a way to work around this hurdle it was insultingly easy actually. He just bribed officials at the office of Price Administration into giving him the stamps in the end he still still came out with a prophet this racket combined with his other illegal operations made Carlo in the Mangano family. Millions but easy living never last long in the Mafia World Carlos.

Recreational marijuana drives down synthetic opioid deaths by a THIRD, study claims
"Let's talk about the issue that has worked to get the some Democrats and Republicans across this country and it is the legalization first of medical marijuana and then in some states it actually propelled itself to the legalization of the recreational use of marijuana through initiative and referendum and man the effect that it's having a pretty amazing there is new research out that says recreational we'd use could lead to a twenty to thirty five percent down turn in the number of opioid deaths that's it that's incredible I could see that twenty to thirty five percent I could see that because remember I had the personal experience two times in my life of having to use pain killers to ward off to us I mean numbing pain they just wouldn't leave it so after I got shot with the five hollowpoint bullets on the orders of the gadis to the Gambino said the back in that cabin June in nineteen ninety two I was on morphine for quite some time without that it just would have been unbearable unbearable and yet you because you could dispense the morphine into yourself you had a little quicker next you head to bed you a basically kept pumping a pump in it a you can like a vegetable you weren't interested in anything you know how I love to follow the news and sports I was interested in what is going on in the world long was this on and off for about two years while because I went in for two different operations of first one had no choice at save my life but then I had to have reverse a reversal operation you know to get rid of the colostomy bag and some of the other procedures that they took and I got to tell you what that is that was worse than the first operation because you knew you were going to get it and it was painful so I had a deal with the morphine effect and then weaning myself off the morphine but worst was when I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease have to having colitis and Ely ideas the pain was just nonstop day in day out they had me on oxy code own hillbilly heroin then they had me on morphine then they had me on fentanyl fentanyl ten times stronger than morphine himself and I must tell you that it wasn't until I was able to qualify for medical marijuana that I found something that not only I was able to deal with my knowledge of my reflux it had a calming effect and more importantly it did eventually deal with the pain yeah and you're not the only person obviously who says this which is why there have been there's really been a change I mean even even judge Jeanine Pirro is now involved in the medical marijuana world I think she's on she's on some advisory board yeah so I mean this is a you know it's it's becoming a lot more prevalent in today's society and for people like you I mean you were able to wean yourself off of the other stuff and get on the medical then general one was in the city it I mean I goals who cold Turkey sometimes and I was just like old man your body is just cycle wracked in pain you keep feeding yourself because a lot of the times issue prescription says take two a day one in the morning one in night but you start self medicate yeah and you do get you fork and it does feel great and then you want to feel like that all the time and then it's like pain in place well the pain is enormous and then all of a sudden you have this plagiarized effect but that goes away quickly you need more and you're talking about you're talking about medical legalize medical marijuana so these opioid they did this study the university of Massachusetts in it they analyzed opioid overdose deaths and the number of deaths fell in states where they had the legalize medical or recreational marijuana the effects were great as listen to this one where when recreational marijuana access gave more people access to dispensaries so the more dispensaries the higher the chances are you will not have it's like when you half your hunt for a seven eleven the more seven elevens the more times you can get your fix this for picture right the less seven elevens and all of a sudden you have the junk no I make a lot of sense if you have these legal outlets where they sell the recreational use of marijuana which means is quality control the state and the local community to making some money on the taxes and you taking it either the hands of the black market that makes all the sense in the world now where are most of the dispensers I mean I know for instance in California you can get them there in Venice Venice is a kind of a it's a highfalutin California California is way ahead of us in making it not only easy to access but invisible locations still in New York state out of sight out of mind in New Jersey it's getting better on the Murphy but a lot of its out of sight out of mind it's gonna be a lob rate the way any other business would be a lot right but don't aren't there more of these legal dispensaries and sort of the rougher neighborhoods predominantly the USA would like that because remember a lot of towns villages him borough say okay we're not opposed to legalization of the recreational use of marijuana just not on our town yeah exactly so the poorer communities say okay we'll house that is long as we get a bigger cut of the tax dollars so that's I guess I mean I guess that's a good thing because a they'll get the cut but H. B. they'll also have all of these medical of all these dispensary it like for instance dad over good access Denver's best known because you can go on the main drag Colfax and the state capital is right here the cathedral is right they have lots of commerce lots of activity and you see these marijuana shops but then you'll see it also in some industrialized areas where wow it's not globally around other than factories and wooden you know pallets in a waiting for trucks to come pick it up and they seem to do well and to me it's sort of like if we can help get people off of the opioid switch to solve problems such as some people to shake at such a killer

A barge called the Mo bro four thousand and he tugboat to tug the barge and on March twenty second nineteen eighty seven three thousand one hundred and eighty six tons of New York garbage set sail steered by Captain Duffy saint-pierre a few saint-pierre one of the best in business people start noticing the barge moving down the coast like what is that thing they think there must be some mobster toxic big waste hidden on the barge and a court order blocks it from unloading in North Carolina the get out and get away from this crowd the barges tied to a Cyprus tree the and the Mississippi River Waiting Mississippi didn't want it Florida Alabama Louisiana all say do not bring it here the barges on the nightly news like who will say no tomorrow the most watched load of garbage in the memory of man. It's become something of a national joke still loaded with tons of garbage still unwanted so the buyer just bobbing in the water two months four months baking in the sun poor captain. Duffy saint-pierre can't dock anywhere to take a shower even and there are all these stats coming out at the time that showed. Food town dumps were closing so people that they filled them all up. There was nowhere for this garbage to go. We've run out of places to throw away our throwaways always where we feel. We weren't full. This is Thomas Kinman in environmental economist at Bucknell University. He's as town dumps were closing but bigger. Regional landfills were taking their place but people didn't see that and so the recycling Arrow was born. That's why we recycled to this day. Who knows where we'd be without that barge? After five months a judge ordered Lowell Harrelson's garbage to go back to where it came from New York to be burned what a legacy <hes> forever will be known as that dummy who sailed the garbage barge. You are basically the reason why we recycle yeah. It has an impact on my tombstone. I would like them to say this. Oh boy did his damnedest okay and lead there so we recycle now in part because of a misconception that the U._S. was running out of landfill space. Sarah Gonzales N._p._R..
