News Reporter Quits to Support Pot

September 22, 2014 |

Legalize.co reports: Charlo Greene, made a shocking announcement during the station’s 10 p.m. newscast at the end of a story titled “Voting for easier access.” Charlo told viewers that she is owner of the cannabis club and acts as a liaison between cannabis card holders and patients.

Charlo claims to be the owner of  Alaska Cannabis Club, she said she would place all of her  energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in the great State of  Alaska,” she said.

“And as for this job,” Charlo continued, “Well, not that I have a choice, but f— it, I quit.”

Charlo said she posted on the crowd-funding site Indiegogo.com in order to get funding for her project. The reporter wrote that she left her job in order to “end a failed drug policy that has ruined the lives of far too many Americans.” She asks visitors to the site to contribute  for marketing and travel in support of legalization. Legalize.co supports Charlo in her valiant efforts to bring newsworthy education to the people, however, it was a bit over the top and we would suggest people do not quit their day jobs.  Instead, be patient and work with your employer if at all possible, in this way perhaps things just might work out and you can continue forward.  In the case of Charlo, well it appears she had no other option and she gave up her passion to help people in need in the great State of Alaska.  We give her major props and would love to see her go all the way to the top, after all Sarah Palin did!

Ben Swann and CBD Oil

September 19, 2014 |

 

Excerpts from BenSwann.com: Ben Swann spent 14 years working as a journalist in the broadcast news industry.  He began his career as a news photographer and eventually moved up the ladder to reporter, morning anchor/reporter, prime time anchor/reporter.  During his long journey he won two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards.  For a number of years he covered Mexico’s drug war as it unfolded before his very eyes.  At that time, he realized the national media was not the bit interested in the truth of what was happening in the Country of Mexico or the problems associated with the failed “war on drugs” in the United States.

[more…]

In 2010, he moved north to the City of Cincinnati, Ohio to take a prime time anchor position with WXIX and there he became the producer, writer, anchor of a segment called “Reality Check”.  It was while covering the 2012 Republican Presidential primary he began to confront the problems in the American electoral process, the stranglehold of America’s two party system and the suppression of voters’ choices by the mainstream media.

In 2012, he became the first journalist in the nation to confront President Barack Obama directly in an interview about the Constitutionality of his “kill list” and the only journalist to confront Mitt Romney about the railroading of duly elected delegates during the 2012 Republican National Convention. Thanks to a passionate following, his work has become an internet phenomenon with over 10 million video views in over 140 countries. Meaning, his video views went viral touching the hearts of many abroad!

For  approximately, two and half years he has heard day after day about media blackout, about corporations having too much control over media, about the need for honesty and truth.  He has heard about how the American public is asleep and there is no one in MSM speaking about the issues of our disappearing liberties, no one to push back against the left/right paradigm. Ben has stepped up in response to what millions of Americans from the Tea Party and Occupy movements, from independents to the fast growing Liberty movement have been crying out for quite a long time.  The time for change is upon us, not later, but now! Ben’s project is about restoring power to the people.  It will be journalism by the people and for the people no matter what it takes!  America is a free America, and we have the right to voice our opinion and our lawmakers have been placed in office by the people.  It is time they listen to people like Ben Swann, a pioneer in and for the people!

You can visit Ben Swann’s social media network at the following links:

We would like to take a moment and give praise where praise is due, Ben Swann is an icon in our eyes, he has challenged himself to unveil the truth of the matter and has a talent second to none.  We need more people like Ben Swann to step and challenge our lawmakers and make sure everything is on the up and up!  It is difficult times such as this in where we must get to the truth of the matter, it has been to long that we have all been kept in the dark to sort of speak.  We need to ask questions of our lawmakers and search for viable answers and solutions to remedy our suspicions of government.  We like his argument about corporations having to much control over the media, it seems to us it is all about the mighty dollar and with our economy still being in a recession we can only wonder who is really in control?

Our position is not to be defiant, however, the government’s lack of communication when it comes to certain issues such as CBD oil or actually anything involving cannabis.  We have the right to know what our government is doing, specifically when it comes to CBD oil as there patients who are suffering all over America and we need to help them as much as possible. The same movements Ben has spoken of are not because people are getting together just to do it, Americans are frustrated…they want to be heard and eventually they will have a voice.  Whether good or bad the people will be heard and our lawmakers themselves should step up and find out the truth!  Ben has struck a vein and has certainly gained great traction along his journey but he has gathered major support as well.  Legalize.co is supportive of what we are going to call the “Ben Swann” movement! Please support Ben by donating and or contributing to his project, he is the voice of the people!  We have to remember we cannot do it alone, we need professionals like Ben who are honorable with high integrity to step up and be our voice!

 

Are Senior Citizens Going to Pot?

September 16, 2014 |

Latest news:  Are senior citizens going to pot?  Well, it sure looks that way, with more and more  pharmaceuticals charging outrageous prices for meds our seniors are turning to cannabis as a remedy to save money.  It is important to realize most senior citizens are on a fixed income and cannot afford to purchase meds from their pharmacies, so instead they have turned to medical marijuana dispensaries or collectives in order to self-medicate.  We spoke to one elderly lady,  Suzanne Milstrap,  from Los Angeles who said she was fed up with paying out of her social security what little she had left to pay for her anxiety meds.  Instead, she applied for a medical marijuana card and started purchasing cannabis from a local dispensary near her house.  She doesn’t have a car and was lucky because the dispensary was in walking distance from her home.

Vape Pens

September 6, 2014 |

Vape pen start ups are popping up all across the states but specifically in Colorado!  Yes, Colorado seems to be taking the lead in innovative start ups and people are thinking of very cool ways to make money. [more…] One popular start up seems to be hemp products from anything to clothing to paint products but that’s not all we have seen hemp jewelry being made selling in the thousands of dollars.  People are buying domain names in order to pitch their online products but the problem seems to be the lack of quality domain names, specifically the .com and we recognize people are splitting the word marijuana to come up with catchy names such as JuanaPuff.com which is owned by Legalize.co.

Pot Legal Joe Catfish

July 17, 2014 |

Pot Legal Joe Catfish, present their newest music video on Legalize.co!  We interviewed Don Holifield who posted on our Facebook site after reviewing his music video.  Don an outspoken cannabis activist since the 70’s expressed his willingness to reach out to the world and let it be known it is now legal! Don who admittedly has had many run ins with the law over smoking marijuana said he is no longer afraid since he now  is a marijuana card toting toker.  Don said he personally wrote the lyrics to his newest song and actually recorded it on a whim in his very own studio. If you listen to the words, his message is pretty simple, but I will let you be the judge of that.  The video has the aroma of a dimly lit bar from the 70’s with a packed out standing room only with thick smoke in the air with beer sipping hippies jamming to pot legal. It was a pleasure interviewing such a fine man such as Don, he was being real and is one of those guys who says it like it is. Read More
