Now he's gonna be known for what amber's testimony said and her pictures showed and that is a guy who has drugs for breakfast. We've seen the pictures, passes out in his closet for lunch and then beats her up for dinner. How long before you can forget that he used a tampon applicator to snort Coke, or that he sliced off a part of his finger because he thought she was fucking Billy Bob Thornton, and he used that finger to write whore and whatever else on a mirror in the bathroom. He's also the guy who pissed all over the floor trying to write even more hateful words, oh, and did I mention any blue is $650 million fortune. How could we all forget that? And on top of all that, you know, wait, could at least walk away believing that it was amber, whose shit on their bed. Remember that? That's what Johnny claimed. She should on my bed. Well, now we've been told, no, no, it's most likely dog shit from boo. The yorkie. The judge actually said, this is why it's so insane to have court in London. The judge said, boo had an incomplete mastery of her bowels after she had accidentally consumed some marijuana. If that was important to you, who shit on the bed as any type of redeeming fact that you can get that now. Even the dog was shitting on Johnny.

Reaching the Finish Line With JD Vance

"Tim Ryan, the pretend moderate, calling for a release of half of all the federal inmates, play cut one O three. Thank you. You've made an ACLU commitment to reduce mass incarceration by 50% during your presidency. So speaking of that commitment, can you walk us through how you would go about doing it? Yeah. There's a lot we have to do. And it ties into a lot of other areas. But I would personally try to start with marijuana laws and getting marijuana off the schedule. Man, just open up our prisons. By the way, anyone who panders like that with the ACLU should not be a senator for the state of Ohio. Because ACLU are the same people that are cousins and sister organizations to people that want to legalize all drugs and then meanwhile, fentanyl is destroying the people of Ohio. People need to know about this. Yeah, that's exactly right, Charlotte, actually our team just identified a video of a couple of days ago where Tim Ryan said that he does want to abolish all limitations all legal penalties for drugs, including fentanyl, which, you know, it makes me realize Charlie like both at the individual trafficker level at the Mexican drug cartel level. And even at the level of China, which of course is manufacturing this fentanyl, the Democrats want to go easy on everybody that's causing this drug problem in the state of Ohio at all across the country. I just got to say Charlie sort of separate the substantive disagreements that I have with Tim Ryan. I watched that clip of him and I think to myself this guy after we beat him is going to have a great career as a used car salesman. There's just something about his voice or about his manner where, you know, it's like he's got a great 1994 Buick. It runs like new and he's going to give you a great deal on it. That's his entire ethic that's his entire attitude. And I think because of it, we're going to do very well in November.

Rep. Ken Buck From Colorado Discusses the Homeless Problem

"I just love to hear your perspective, because you've been in prosecuting immuno law enforcement, working with law enforcement and crime in Colorado for years. Do you see any of this because I think this is a conversation we're going to have to have. I'm not sure Colorado did it right. I'm not sure California to write not sure if someone say, but this issue of marijuana. This legalization that we're looking at. The homeless issue that you talked about, the others that we're seeing, did that, and I'm not sure how to put this. Did it precipitate it? Did it encourage it? Or does it did the legalization, both recreational and medical really have a difference in what you're seeing here? Or is that or is it actually something that is a problem? It's a great question. I don't have a great answer for you, Doug, because I don't think there has been the analysis and the gathering of statistics that's necessary to make that decision. I went to Texas to go hunting with a group of folks, flew into Austin. I saw a mile of homeless tents under bridges in Boston. They don't have legalized recreational marijuana in Texas. So I think that when folks relax standards and in some places in Colorado, frankly, we don't have a homeless in Chicago springs, the mayor John suthers did a great job in terms of, if you're a vagrant, if you don't have a place, we're going to give you a fine, we're going to require you to go to a county jail unless you choose to go to this homeless shelter, you get job skills, you get medication if that's what you need, but we're not going to just let you live out in the streets and really cause chaos. And so I think it's a city by city issue in Colorado.

Marijuana Use Among Young Adults Is Skyrocketing

"A new study shows that marijuana use has reached record levels for young adults. Wow, how's that? How's that folks? I've been warning about marijuana for the 40 years I've been broadcasting. Even conservatives have called my radio show to say Dennis with all respect, agree with you almost all the time, but not on this one. My least popular, I think my least popular position is that I'm infinitely rather my kids smoke cigarettes. That smoke weed. I said this for the last 40 years. There was no doubt in my mind, which was worse for them. Cigarettes could affect their health, no question about it. But marijuana could affect their brain. And much sooner than tobacco or specifically cigarettes. Cigars enough, not nearly as dangerous. And any Doctor Who tells you they are, you should visit another doctor. Maybe the sweetest doctor in the world has your interest in mind, but they're not telling you the truth.

And he's going to say that he's going to forgive a pardon every single person who has a federal charge of possession of marijuana. Let me school you real quick, Joe Biden. Most people that are being affected by marijuana possession are also being charged with other more heinous crimes. Marijuana, I don't know a person sitting in jail for having some weed and in the center console. I don't know nobody sitting in jail today. That's doing actual time in jail for having a joint. I don't know a person. But what happens is that ray ray got a stolen gun and he got weed. Somebody did a home invasion and then they fit, you know, they find out that they got ten, 20 pounds of weed in their house. That's how you go to prison. You don't go to prison for a little joint. Or if you've been committing crimes and this is your third strike. That's how you go to jail for a significant amount of time. And ladies and gentlemen, it's not going to do anything. Most people that are in prison right now, you know, that have anything to do with marijuana that's doing time is because they committed other violent crimes. You can partner that off the record, but they still doing life in prison for murder. You can partner off their record and still doing a significant amount of time in prison for aggravated assault.

Into these fatherless homes, and then you take another group of people and say 75%. And you add all the numbers that I said, which group of people are going to fare better. Who's going to have the most problems? It's going to be the group that has the least amount of fathers who are in the home. I don't understand how in our country we're not prioritizing this.

In America, Yu Can Accomplish Anything

"The first topic it was three pillars that I focused on in this speech for a nonprofit organization called take charge. One of the organization out in Minneapolis, but at this event, they asked me to keynote speak and I was trying to get in my mind, what should I talk about? What are the key elements that I think are affecting America and dispensation of time? And it's such a time as this is what the Bible would say. But I had three things that I wanted to talk about. The first one is that all that we see from police reform, all that we see from defund the police. All this stuff is all rooted in a lie. It all came from a line. It all came from a freaking lie. Not rooted in truth, not rooted in any real evidence, not not in any evidence due to research, not any evidence due to people's firsthand knowledge of these incidents. A complete lie. The second one is fatherless homes. I know that people talk about it a lot, but you just wait until I give you some of the stats that I had researched. And you will understand why a lot of people are speaking about fatherless homes and telling you time and time and time again that it is an incredible issue in our country that we're facing today that if we can fix if we can make right, we will see a tremendous change in America. We see a tremendous change in inner city communities. And the last pillar of concept was that you can be whatever you want to be in the United States of America. If you work hard, if you put God first and you know, if you have enough faith to believe, you can accomplish anything. Your color is not an obstruction. You know, your background is not necessarily an inevitable obstruction. If you put in the work and you believe in yourself, you put God first and everything that you do, you can accomplish great things, no matter where you start from. IE, Ben Carson and I can name a whole bunch of more people that have had that experience.

NY Times: Donald Trump Is Not Above the Law

"Wrote this long piece over the weekend. Basically laying out the intellectual case, their supposed pseudo intellectual case for an indictment. And The New York Times, they're very, they love I told you so. They love being able to write something and being able to say, look, as we said, a couple of months ago, we were right about this. We were very clear about why Donald Trump needs to be indicted all this nonsense. So they wrote this piece. And again, I don't make a habit out of covering The New York Times too much. But this is not this piece is not a mistake. Donald Trump is not above the law by the editorial board. Now, The New York Times wrote this piece probably in collusion and in coordination with the FBI with the Justice Department with people prosecutors, The New York Times can be best compared to metaphorically to a fullback or to a snowplow or to kind of a force forward to try to pave the way for a coming or a looming indictment. You see The New York Times operates to move the overton window. Remember, the overton window is a spectrum of what is once deemed unthinkable to eventually what is acceptable to then what is popular. Overton window moved on issues like marijuana, moved on issues such as defund the police, which was once considered to be unthinkable is even popular in certain communities, not that many. So The New York Times writes this article to try to move the overton window to try to prime the pump for a grand jury they're trying to impanel. Now I know some of you might say, Charlie, none of this is new, we know they're trying to get Trump. No, this is very important because we're now going to go a step deeper because this impacts the midterms right now. I think Republicans are mishandling this. And I think

Black Couple Accuses Houston’s Restaurant of Racial Profiling

"So Houston's has a policy. If you smell, they politely ask you to leave. Yes. And I'm going to read the first paragraph and you can understand their Fox 13 is an attack mode. Humiliated, shocked and denied all emotions a police officer said he felt when he and his family were asked to leave a Memphis restaurant over the weekend because his party allegedly smelled like marijuana. So it turns out the couple one of them's a cop and the other is a high school principal. Which I have questions, but continue. All right, so anyway, the manager said that, hey look, people are complaining. They say you guys smell of marijuana and we need you to leave because if you're in a restaurant and you smell like marijuana, that's disturbing to the other diners, right? Oh yeah. So anyway, the couple is black. And they have immediately made it about race and not odor. And they're accusing Houston's of racism and racial profiling. No, this is not racial profiling. This is nasal profiling. We smell you. This is true. Anything that smells bad, we're going to deal with here. So anyway, the guy says, well, look, the manager comes over and says, look, there's a strong odor of marijuana coming from your party. And the guy says, ma'am, we don't smoke marijuana. You're mistaken. So it turned long story short. I guess it turns out maybe they were mistaken. Oh no. But I don't know. It's hard to kind of read through the story because they are clearly writing with a bias here. But regardless, Houston says, look, we want to make this right, we're going to dinner is on us. And you know, the couple here, if in fact they're not the ones who smelled like marijuana, are right to be like angry and upset. Sure, ruin their date now. But what is the first thing they go to? Racism. Always.

"marijuana" Discussed on Slow Burn

"Born made his views very clear more than anything else. People would die large numbers from heroin. An you know you had forty million people in the country using marijuana. Nobody dying from it. Born believed that every dollar spent enforcing marijuana laws was a dollar taken away from work that really mattered in nineteen seventy six. He convinced carter that he was right but i do with the decriminalization of marijuana carter was making a big statement. This was the most liberal position on marijuana ever taken by a major party presidential nominee. Carter didn't personally approve of pot. But he was no richard nixon. he hung out with. We'd loving musicians like willie nelson and the allman brothers. And he didn't think that everyone under thirty was plotting to destroy america. And i pray that i can live up to your confidence and never disappoint. Carter's victory marked a huge shift in american politics. The end of the nixon era and a fresh start after watergate and vietnam. One of the most memorable events for me. He was on his way to go into the oval office for the very first time so we went together and he just walked in the middle of the room. Just what sort of in wonderment. Peter born had lots of ideas about how he could help his closest friend. The president of the united states born advocated for national health insurance and he put together a plan to end world hunger. He also talked to carter about sending rockets to mars. All of that stuff was outside of bornes purview. What he could do was change. American drug policy bornes official title with specialists distant to the president for drug abuse. One of the people he met with with. Keith's drop we had so much to gain by maintaining that relationship with peter being so close to the president of self and so powerful in terms of drug policy when strop founded normal. He struggled to get big players to take him seriously. Now with carter in the white house. He became a washington. Insider stopped smoked. We with the president's son chip and he bonded with administration officials that to a point. Where when the allman brothers going to play a concert here in d. c. I would actually right out to the concert with a group of white house. People in a bus stayed charter. Most of the time we were smoking on the bus going out and smoking on us bus coming home. Keith's drop in peter. Bourne had very different. Philosophies stop was toner who thought everyone in america should be to enjoy. The benefits of marijuana. Orrin was a doctor who thought the marijuana was trivial and the government should focus its resources on heroin but from those different starting points. Mr marijuana and the drugs are ended up in the same place. We will be saving the lives and careers of a lot of young people that would otherwise be destroyed by maintaining criminal penalties and putting people in jail for possession at times. It sounded like the white house's is talking points on marijuana had been written by keith. Strap in nineteen seventy seven. That actually happened one day. Stop got a phone call from a friend. A junior white house speechwriter. And he said. I'm calling it 'cause i got an interesting assignment. I'm supposed to be drafting a statement that the president could send the congress and i'm wondering would you like to come and help we work on and of course almost kill myself. Run into his place stops. Most aggressive pro pot. Language got edited out but a lot of his material remained intact in a special message on drug abuse. He sent to the congress. Mr carter said the penalties for using a drug should not be worse than the effects of the drug itself. And i think in our line in the carter speed it we even followed up with an nowhere. Is this more evident than in the laws against marijuana possession and use the biggest headline coming out of that statement with the jimmy carter endorsed decriminalization. It was the first time a sitting president had ever done so. I support a change in law in federal criminal penalties for possession of up to one ounce of marijuana leaving the states free to adopt whatever laws they wish concerning marijuana and dot. The born is my personal adviser on this subject. We don't feel that law enforcement agencies whose resources may be very limited should devote that time predominantly to dealing with a drug. That may not cost that much of a hazard keith. Strap saw this as a huge win. In some ways it was just symbolic because carter was in proposing specific bill but coming from the president and his drug czar that symbolism was important a fundamental shift in american marijuana policy felt tantalizingly close. We're going to get legislation passed in the congress. It'll be very progressive. We fully thought within.

"marijuana" Discussed on The Brookings Cafeteria

"Can't get through in the reason for that is for a lot of members of congress a lot of senators and even presidents. they still see the possibility of being attacked as soft on crime or week on drugs or worse creating a policy. That's going to get children addicted to drugs. They see that is really damning now. Those attacks used to land in the nineteen eighties and in the nineteen nineties. But what we've seen is they're not landing today. People don't see drug policy in that same way but if you're older elected official the memory of those types of political attacks linger with you and unfortunately they're not replacing updating their own understanding of the politics of the day and it puts them out of step with a lot of americans. I think the best example of how cannabis legalization support for cannabis. Legalization is not a liability is the second to last senate race in texas ted cruz. In baidoa rourke faced off against each other in deep red texas and ted cruz was vehemently opposed to cannabis. Legalization and baidoa aurore supported full scale national legalization and ted cruz won by just about a point. Beta aurora was not trounced for having that position on cannabis. Despite ted cruz is best efforts. And i think if a liberal in texas can run on a full-scale legalization platform income closer than any democrat has come to winning statewide office since nineteen ninety four. It shows you that the liability of that position is no longer when it was another point. That you make in the paper has to do with your call for a superfund like program to clean up what you call the disaster of cannabis enforcement now. Superfund as i understand it was the major environmental cleanup program. The nineteen eighties. Maybe it still goes on today. I don't know gay talk about why you're calling for a superfund program to address the disastrous cannabis enforcement. The superfund program in the environmental context still exists today. And what it does. Is it identifies environmental challenges that exist within communities in some cases identifies who is the causes that if it is identifiable and then uses funding typically a blend of public funds and private funds to clean up that area to rehabilitate that land that water supply whatever. Environmental entity was affected by pollution. And to try to make that community whole again. And i think it's easy for the average american understand in environmental disaster. We all had a place in town where some sort of waste used to be dumped or a factory. That probably wasn't doing what they should with regard to the chemicals that they were using after the factory goes under. It's a mess. No one wants to buy that land. No one wants to try to revitalize that land so it takes a government to step in to try to revitalize that it's easier for people to understand the disaster that old factory convene for community. It's a lot harder especially for white americans to understand the disaster that racialist drug enforcement can cause within a community or more importantly within units within a community in so if we start to identify using data where that enforcement has had the biggest impact where it continues to have an impact where those lost opportunities exist. We can identify down to very specific targets within towns and within cities who has been harmed the most in what communities have been harmed the most and try to reinvest in those communities. It's important to remember argued this in the paper that the drug war impacts more than just the people who were arrested the drug war impacts families it impacts communities it impacts the fabric of communities particularly when you have hundreds or thousands of typically black and brown men being introduced to the criminal justice system many of them spending time in jail and that extraction of human capital of innovation of educational opportunities all has an ongoing impact that snowballs over time as this happens to generations of individuals so in the same way that we think of environmental waste impacting community. We have to think of the waste that is rationalized law enforcement having that same impacting communities in there being a need to clean it up. And ask you about one of the other points in your five point plan and it has to do with the presidential commission to study federal cannabis legalization. I think that's a really interesting problem and again you talked about the issue of understanding. My medical science of what cannabis can't can't do but there's restrictions on studies because of the way that cannabis is scheduled in federal drug schedule. Can you just talk about that particular point in your plan that ends up being a controversial point in my plan. Actually there are a lot of very strong pro cannabis reform individuals and activists out there. Who look at this issue and say why the hell do we need another commission or another study to tell us what we already know. My response to that is that that works for you but if this was so obvious to everyone else this is something that would have passed congress ready and it hasn't there lot of members of congress. They're united states senators on both sides of the aisle. It current president of the united states. Who has not been exposed to enough of the data and enough of the science and enough of really the data coming out of state level programs to be able to understand in evaluate the issue. Holy and in an unbiased way. And i think. A presidential commission elevates that research. We've had presidential commissions on the issue of cannabis before many of them actually came back and recommended more liberal policies than were in place the most recent one being the schaefer commission in the nineteen seventies. It came back and said to president. Nixon cannabis isn't as bad as your administration is playing it up to be. We should probably take steps away from criminalization in endured decriminalization and what president nixon did was ignored. The study throw it in a drawer. Criticized it in public press conference and then never spoke of it again. That's not the type of treatment this issue needs. But when a president treats the issue in that way it has ripple effects throughout our government throughout our society and so i think the best thing that we can do is have an unbiased conversation about what cannabis policies have meant. For this country cannabis reform can do to reverse the harms of those previous policies. And what the experience of cannabis reform good and bad has been in the state so far. We've had nine years of legalization in colorado in washington. We've had twenty five years of medical legalization in california. There's enough data right now to help inform someone like president biden or someone like a republican. Moderate were a democratic moderate in the senate. He's on the fence. Or uninformed about issue about what the future can mean in that commission i think is the path not to convince every american but to convince that last group of americans needed for that critical mass. Well john i wanna point out to listeners. There are at least two other points that you make an paper in your five point plan. I encourage listeners to go to our website and download the paper in read it. it's a great analysis of a possible path. Forward plus read your other work on marijuana policy and always i to thank you for sharing your time and expertise.

"For the parent activists from atlanta. Peter bornes ouster with the opening. They needed to influence federal drug policy in the early days of the carter administration. Marsha keith. so hard had gotten aced out now. She's gordon invitation to the newly anti-marijuana white house where she made her pitch about how we'd damaging kids she hard brought a visual aid with her to washington a big pile of bonds when we got to the security gate. The guards opened. It said well. They're going to be a party up there today. In one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. The national institute on drug abuse published a booklet researched and written by xu hard. It was called parents peers pot. It told the story of her daughter's smoke-filled thirteenth birthday party and everything that came after the book was full of alarming claims like that marijuana might cause enlarged breasts and adolescent boys government scientists found shoe hearts pros hyperbolic but the public ate it up. You know after million copies were ordered. They stopped printing it because they said we have too many orders. This is how the government can work when ronald nancy. Reagan moved into the white house and nineteen eighty one. The parent activists became even more influential. I said mrs reagan. You know. I have to be frank with you. I'm a democrat. I'm even the l word and she licked me. Said what do you mean. I said a liberal. She just burst out laughing. Said we're all in this together. It's a nonpartisan movement. I had to give credit for that. Marijuana usage peaked in america in nineteen seventy nine then fell in every age category in the nineteen eighty s and decriminalization. It's stopped cold a few months before. Peter bourne resigned the white house drug czar nebraska became the eleven th state to decriminalize marijuana. No other states followed suit in the next two decades. Peter bourne is eighty one years old now. He splits his time between northern virginia and a farm in wales where he and his wife raise llamas. Only in the carter administration. I thought you know everything's going in the right way with marijuana. Then you know it. All took a complete turn. I would have never guessed that. Were you the most progressive drug czar out of all of them. I fall seventeen years after he resigned. Keith drop got rehired as normals executive director. He's now the group's legal counsel at seventy seven years old strop now sees the world. He always imagine. Beginning to take shape in virginia where he lives. It's legal for adults twenty one and older to possess consume and grow small amounts of marijuana at the end of our interview. He invited me to come over and light one up some time. Strop his sad batting out. Peter bourne was the stupidest decision he ever made. He says the last time they ran into each other was eight or ten years ago at a cocktail party. I think we might have chatted for a minute. You know i mean. I could tell he was a little uncomfortable. Didn't know quite how he should respond to me. I was certainly trying to be civil to him in neither of us tried to make a move to say you want to get a beer sometime or you wanna you know that that i think we both recognize that We had passed that point of no return a long time ago. How much do you blame keith. Strap for your downfall well. That's a good question. I suppose quite laut born told me that back then. He didn't understand what stop was doing why he'd been so outraged and paranoid and hell bent on destroying what had been a productive partnership but now born says. He thinks he gets what was going on. I don't think i'm betraying confidences. But what i was unaware of then was that he had a serious cocaine problem. I can see that he wasn't wielding. Good judgment. I don't doubt that cocaine had something to do with it. Shirk one of the things. You get very ragged. When you're doing cocaine you get irritable. Sometimes you get angry on things that would make you angry. Otherwise the cocaine use was not helpful. I don't think i can use it as an excuse but it probably did cause. My responses could be exaggerated at times. Keith's drop and peter bourne will never agree about what happened in that private room at the normal christmas party. But here there's something approaching consensus. Mr marijuana dropped the dime on the drug czar for doing cocaine because he himself was doing too much cocaine and that is how the pro pot movement of the nineteen seventy.

"Peter bourne told his colleagues at the white house that he'd seen cocaine at the party but that he hadn't used it. That explanation was not enough to save the drugs ours. Job dr peter. Bolan out of consideration for my administration has submitted his resignation. This afternoon which i have accepted with regret was embarrassed with coulter. It came to that but he was very understanding. Very good to me. Dr bona's a close friend of mine and my family. He's enabling dedicated public servant. What does it feel like to be the top story in america. It's it's bad it's bad you have you know. Everybody camped outside your house. Know what. I would recommend to people. Peter bourne didn't leave the white house quietly after he resigned. He told the new york times that marijuana use was commonplace at the white house he also said that few of his colleagues did cocaine a couple of days later. Jimmy carter sent a memo to the white house staff. I expect everyone to obey the law. The president said you will obey it or you will seek employment elsewhere. Keith's drop hadn't been named and the good morning america story. That took down peter bourne but stop did give a quote to the washington post and basically outed himself as the original source after that stopped. Got outta town going to las vegas to hang out with his friend willie nelson and clear his head. And i think by the time. I got back to dc. I realized two things that peter had ended up being hurt more than he deserved. And of course. I realized that My career with normal almost certainly was coming to an an strop. It severed his connection to the white house and he'd done it recklessly. Any idiot should have recognized that. Even if i felt threatened about paraquat spraying or even if i was angry about something else that didn't justify destroying that point of access to power the founder of normal had also violated the drug users code. You don't snort and tell. I realized really quickly that. When i tried to call a friend or two over on the hill they wouldn't even take my calls or if they did take them they were angry. Strop issued an apology but too much damage had been done in december nineteen seventy eight at normals annual conference. He delivered his farewell speech as the group's executive director a year earlier. That conference had been a nonstop celebration and keep strap and peter bourne it seemed indestructible now. They both been disgraced and their downfall. It had profound consequences for the pro marijuana movement. They'd been working to build before the born scandal. A relaxed approach marijuana. Fit in perfectly with the carter administration's priorities afterward. The white house pulled back from anything that might be perceived as soft on drugs born successor as drug czar.

"The undoing of peter bourne began on a friday afternoon in july. Nineteen seventy eight. This young woman came to me and said She was having trouble sleeping. Could i write her prescription for Bills that women worked for born at the white house and he could prescribe her medication since he was a licensed doctor. So i wrote a prescription for quiet way. Leads were extremely popular in the seventies as sleeping pills. But also as an aphrodisiac. Warren told the woman that he'd give her a pseudonym for the quail prescription. So it wouldn't show up if she ever tried to get security clearance. Well it regular practice. If you have somebody who wants to keep the use of drugs confidential. Barnes aid asked a friend to pick up a prescription. When that friend went to the drug store a pharmacy inspector happened to be there doing routine rounds so it was just total chance otherwise. I don't think anybody would of moaner kid. Dr peter born white house staff. Member is a physician legally entitled to write prescriptions. But in a very strange case he apparently wrote one for quite lewd then a washington woman trying to get the prescription filled was arrested. The white house promised an explanation but there is none yet. I suppose you initially thought it would just blow of. It did not blow over the day. After the quailed story came out the investigative reporter jack anderson went on good morning america to deliver some breaking news. Three witnesses had seen the drug. Czar peter bourne snort cocaine at the normal christmas party. Anderson's report didn't name any of the three witnesses but it did say they had provided complete and convincing details. Who'd spilled all the details like an idiot. I somehow managed to take what was confined scandal and find a way to put myself in the middle of it for more stories that shaped our world checkout history this week from the history channel every episode.

This week turns back the clock to meet the people visit the places and witnessed the moments that led us to where we are today. New episodes are out every monday. So subscribe to history this week. Wherever you get your podcasts. Why did keith strop told reporters that peter bourne had done coke. Born was the best ally he'd ever had together. They'd been spreading the gospel of decriminalization across america. But stop it become convinced that american marijuana smokers were in danger of being killed and he thought the carter administration and peter were complicit. We literally thought we were being poisoned by the government. And that we were going to have our own constituents dropping dead. The issue was an urbicide called paraquat the mexican government with sprang paraquat and poppy and marijuana fields using helicopters provided by the united states. And so the theory went. Anyone who smoked pot imported from mexico might be inhaling paraquat i remember at the time their articles saying that even teaspoon of pair caught on your tongue and you have an agonizing death that sept strong a us government report indicated that marijuana users could suffer lung damage by smoking grasp laced with paraquat. So i said peter that scott stuck. You're gonna be killing people. Peter bourne did not bhai straps argument. I thought it was all bullshit. Repay thousands of dollars to have an analyzed tests. Being done on it. I mean the power quote thing was totally scientifically wrong. There's not much clear. Evidence that paraquat ever harmed american marijuana smokers but the chemical is extremely toxic and stop was disgusted. That peter bourne thought that was no big deal stop and born had found common ground on decriminalization but they were now on opposite sides of what strop considered an existential issue. Strap had been able to look past that tension in nineteen seventy seven but in the first few months of nineteen seventy eight. He began to see bornes actions as unforgivable. I was at that point. Was jesus christ peter. You're going to a life and death. Don't forget over here to the something that's drop had with the story about the normal christmas party. A bunch of reporters had seen peter born at the party and plenty of them. Had heard the whispers about the drug. Czar doing coke one of those journalists work for the investigative reporter jack anderson in the weeks after the party he pastored straub to confirm the cocaine rumors. He called me at least two times to try to get me to serve as a basis for him to break. That story. And i kept saying no. I can't do it. i can't do it now. Stop changed.

Group started. the first thing we did was show them what the paraphernalia looked like and suggest that they try to find it in their community and they always did. Keith's drop not accounted for any of this when he made his push for decriminalization and when the parents from atlanta starting to get traction he still didn't think they were real threat. Their philosophy was if it's unsafe for kids and you should legalize it and of course that's a stupid standard you if that was. The standard adults couldn't drive or fireplace or have sex so i thought because bat premise was so wrong headed that we didn't have to worry about them. It was always unlikely that. Mr marijuana in the nosy parents would find common ground but she thought she might have a chance to win over the drug. Czar she got an audience with peter. Born in december nineteen seventy seven at a conference on drug abuse. She told him about middle. Schooler smoking pot and she pulled out a bag of marijuana publications that she bought a suburban shopping mall. Born listened to what she had to say and looked at what she brought. And the drug. Czar was totally unmoved. It should slid to play up the threat of marijuana. He was very indifferent rude. Dismissive are really didn't know anything about drug abuse for one thing. They couldn't explain the position in any sort of public health. Tomes and did you feel that it was legitimate to be concerned about thirteen year olds smoking marijuana. I didn't bother me that much. I think when you compare it to the thousand nine each month from.

Strap it thought about getting a psychiatrist to say that he was gay which would have disqualified him from the armed forces but his wife vetoed that idea in the end. He steered clear of military service by getting a government job. Stop work for the national commission on products safety as a lawyer on the commission he learned to do the kind of consumer advocacy work made famous by ralph. Nader one can imagine what would happen if people could see what goes into their processed food products or they could see the enormous price fixing that goes on in the petroleum industry. He he seemed incredibly sincere and committed. It was clear that he was trying to improve. The country improves the world. We all live in by the way. I should make it clear. Ralph nader the one thing. He's not is he's not a stoner. I doubt ralph has ever had a marijuana cigarette in his mouth keith. Strap had a marijuana cigarette in his mouth all the time in one thousand nine hundred seventy. He turned that habit into a career. He was going to advocate for marijuana smokers. Just as ralph nader took up for consumers are group goal. The national organization for the reform of marijuana laws quickly called a news conference and produced experts of its own at first stops. Lobbying group got treated as a curiosity but he was tireless and charismatic. And he knew what he wanted to achieve straps ultimate goal was to make we'd legal in the us. In the meantime he pushed for a smaller more practical step decriminalization. We're really trying to stop the practice of making criminals out of people who smoke marijuana. Our social policies should be one where we recognize. That drugs are going to be used but we direct our society away from the most harmful drugs like alcohol and tobacco that we know are addicted and towards the drugs. If they're going to use drugs at all which are least harmful. America's harsh marijuana laws dated back to the early twentieth century when they'd been enacted to target black and mexican americans as the demographics of marijuana users changed so did the drugs reputation in nineteen sixty nine life magazine published photos of white professionals and cocktail attire token if young otherwise law abiding and essentially white people were going to start using this drug in greater numbers. People felt that they didn't want to then burden these individuals with a criminal record. Emily duffin is the author of grassroots the rise and fall and rise of marijuana in america. You know this person's probably going to go on to have a family and a white picket fence and do we really want to destroy their future for a little bit of harmless fun harmless or not. Marijuana was still illegal and if you got caught in the wrong place doing the wrong thing. The consequences could be extremely severe when don crow was convicted of selling marijuana to an undercover agent. There seemed reason for hope. It was his first offense after all in the amount had been small less than one ounce what the jury saw student sentenced fifty years in prison. You could get a sense of outrage. That they were locking up some poor young child who had committed some nonviolent marijuana fence that caused a lot of people to think. Maybe marijuana prohibition was a policy that needed review plenty of americans believed that time. Marijuana offenders weren't really offenders at all and so under the right circumstances the country might have been on a path to decriminalization in the late sixties and early seventies but there was one very important person standing in the way. America's public enemy number one is drug abuse in order to fight and defeat this enemy. It is necessary to wage a new all out offensive. Richard nixon saw marijuana as a tool of his enemies liberals young people vietnam protesters and in nixon's america. Those enemies needed to be police. In nineteen hundred seventy. He signed the federal controlled substances act which put drugs into five different categories or schedules. The most restrictive category schedule one was for drugs. That were totally outlawed even for medical use heroin. Lsd and marijuana marijuana's placement in schedule. One had to be reviewed by a commission that commission was stacked with nixon. Appointees now nixon thinks that this is going to be a slam dunk. It causes untold damage to the population. It's going to ruin generations of children. It should absolutely be outlawed van schedule line or or worse so when all those nixon appointees weighed the evidence. They did something surprising. They argue that. This drug isn't that bad. The federal recommendations are as follows. First possession for personal use is no longer a criminal. offense second. Nonprofit distribution of small amounts should no longer be a criminal offence. Richard nixon heated those recommendations so he ignored them. Nixon kept marijuana as a schedule. One drug which it still is today and marijuana arrests kept increasing every year he was in office but nixon wasn't all powerful lawmakers around the country read the commission's report and found a persuasive and they began realizing that they had the capacity to change marijuana laws on the local level. And that's what began to happen. The state of oregon was on penalties for those caught with small amounts of marijuana oregon was the first state to decriminalize marijuana and nineteen seventy-three by nineteen. Seventy six six more states had done it and a bunch of others look like they were moving in that direction but for american marijuana policy to get remade the federal government would have to be onboard. There we need to be a new voice in washington someone with liberal views. Who is savvy enough to wield real political power. Someone like peter born. We'll be back in a minute support for this. Podcast comes from invent together. According to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation in innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse the american patents system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org. Learn more and take action. Today i come out of a public health background if people die. That's a bad thing if they do things and it doesn't cause them to lie. Can't be that bad. I mean that's the summation of my philosophy. Peter bourne served as the doctor. In vietnam were soldiers found solace in heroin after his tour of duty. The englishman moved to california and saw the dark aftermath of the summer of love. I was involved with the setting up the haight ashbury free medical clinic in nineteen.

And so that's what i did and i don't remember this but there are stories and then at that point they just kinda like put me in a cab because i was still i actually at this point but Yeah that's my most embarrassing drunk tells the tale of the trombone titties. When you said there are stories. I let out of sigh of relief because i thought you were about to say there are pictures and i could imagine that could that would have been even worse. Yeah i don't think there are pictures but you know if there are that sucks that they delete it. yeah. I remember having a few of those. There's a few of those my friends. I have very few people left in my life. Who have ever even seen me drunk and a few of them. Just have these stories where i remember going on that. That felt charming or funnier. Interesting in the moment. And i look back and realize that everyone there was just either worried about me or maybe pitying me a little bit and and those revelations are not easy to swallow no no. They're not like yod there. I hit bottom so many times before. I stopped for good and i kind of oh stopping for good to my on my middle age. Not boyfriend But that's the only thing. I will ever thank him for but Yeah it's just you know at a certain point. I just couldn't do it anymore. And i feel so much better. I don't feel like i'm scattered flailing anymore but it took a long time to to get here but yeah i do have my own place. It's like i'm really sorry. You can hear my radiators. They're so loud. It's a really old buildings. Oh good because it sounds like a train. So that's really but Yeah it's like. I don't think i'm the first person who thought through pandemic and the building. It's like a tiny apartment. It's mind i love it but like our place is really nice. I had a lot more spending money. When i was living with my ex A lot more security. Yeah so it was really scary to take that job. But i don't regret it. And now i was. I was fortunate enough to be able to do a tour with a theater company and do like it was kind of a it was kind of sad but it was kind of Just like a one person piece about leaving him. I'm trying to make it into something that's sixty minutes. Long with only like fifteen part of it was like cabaret show able to toured around but there are a lot of women who came up to me who told me that i gave that confidence so i get out of a bad situation which is so humbling and feel so good Yeah yeah no. I was like we're dying. That i kind of. Yeah no. i'll tell you something else. So and i can almost promise this is like i mean it's it sounds. It's pretty clear that you think your current in socks compared to the old one and telling me about the radiators that sound like trains. And i feel like when you say you're not the first person lived through a pandemic here that indicates that you think there are also people suffering this place in nineteen eighteen. But i bet. I bet i just encourage you to also take a deep breath and enjoy it and smile when you come home and when those radiators are like blast and so loud they wake you up and they hope you remember this and laugh. 'cause i bet in ten years you're gonna look back and go. Living in. that apartment was one of the best areas of my life based on what you got out of and what you're headed towards right now that's the best. the best. The fresh aliens says the frustrating years as an artist before you take that leap into the more intimidating scene whether that's a new city or within your city so stress for confusing but you're also living such a fun life even though it's onboard word there's no security and i hope you enjoy it more than i enjoyed those times in my own experience because i would kill i would kill to be back in a bar drinking my ginger ale while my friends.

"But that's because the flu them all and they bought him all this stuff all the judges and so on all the members i say and but i feel bad who worked in that show. 'cause they're just using their show was. This is the garbage show that you should never have gotten an award. So i feel bad for those guys but so anyway this group is there in. This group has zero diversity. This group says that it's working on creating diverse a diverse environment so on so forth. Anyway i don't know who triggered this but now everyone. The grandmother jumped on the bandwagon meaning. Nbc was the station that aired the golden globes. They've backed out. They're not gonna hear the golden globe next year amazon. Said it's not going to do with him. The golden globes netflix. He might said the same thing. I think even Hbo came out. A turner came out the same thing or one. Sorry and older umbrellas. Tom cruise return to three or four golden globes. Like everybody is jumping in on this thing that we're not about this. Golden globes lack of lack of diversity aspect now. This puts me in a conundrum. Because i want to come out and say conveniently woke but i don't know convenient we'll versus people finally realizing like i don't know how to phrase this one right and this is this but this on the positive side. This speaks to what i've been saying for a long time. Whereby if you want to affect change you have to take things. Sadly you gotta take what matters away from the people perpetrating the ill deeds and this scenario. That is the asia. Nego- look we're just. We're i mean we're not gonna support you anymore so get your you know. Get your shit together and so now. It's on them to get their shit together. Which is i mean if they're not. They weren't motivated before the dam. Sure motivated now. You know what. I'm saying like no place. Air all the major studios in anything that you can't have a golden globes have no shows from. Hbo and netflix. What does it golden globes. Then you know what i'm saying. So it's one of these things and then you have no. Cbs nbc you. Have none of these people out there. So now all of a sudden guess what i guarantee there's going to be quite a few people on the ranks and minorities in the ranks in no time flat. Which by the way would have taken a long time. So this is how you legitimately can affect change In any scenario but.

amazon netflix next year golden globe three Nbc four Hbo asia golden globes one Tom one of these things zero diversity nbc
