Mary Beth Buchanan Resigns

Bush-appointed U.S. District Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan will finally leave her job on November 16. The U.S. District Attorney is SUPPOSED TO leave when a new President is elected. However, she initially refused to do so. She was a hard-core right winger who carried out Bush's anti-drug agenda.

This is the same Mary Beth Buchanan that wrongfully sent Tommy Chong to prison for nine months for conspiracy to send bongs in the mail.

This is the same Mary Beth Buchanan that raided Spectrum Labs and confiscated a/k/a Tommy Chong DVDs.

This is the same Mary Beth Buchanan that prosecuted the makers of the Whizzinator.

Mary Beth "loose cannon" (as Tommy Chong calls her) isn't saying what her future plans are.

Tommy Chong, Josh Gilbert and Congressman Frank Talk Pot

The web site True/Slant interviewed the legendary Tommy Chong, a/k/a Tommy Chong Director, Josh Gilbert and Congressman Frank about the government and pot.

Among other things, Tommy says “I don’t think it is the government’s business to tell you how to spend your leisure time.” He goes on to say that the pot laws "are all corrupt. The DEA and the Justice Department create a criminal organization that’s licensed to take over someone else’s property. It’s like bouncers at a night club who start a fight so that they can keep their jobs."

According to Josh Gilbert, “So many U.S. agencies have a stake in [pot's] illegalization. The DEA’s budget is 80 percent marijuana.”

It's a great article.
