The Flower contrasts a utopian society that freely farms and consumes a pleasure giving flower with a society where the same flower is illegal and its consumption is prohibited. The animation is a meditation on the social and economic costs of marijuana prohibition.
Million Marijuana March 2010 in Warsaw
Million Marijuana March in Warsaw at 29.05.2010
An incredible case of extenders again, this time from the UK.
There, somebody has iron particles found in his grass - and it made a video. While the ultimate responsibility for the contamination is the result of unscrupulous dealers, there is no doubt an effect of cannabis prohibition, which paves the way for such a behavior.
Lead the way, is not magnetic!
This ad is an election parody made by "Drug Policy Alliance" in the USA. The original is American, but Marc Emery paid for this new one to be made for the Canadian election, which is on October 14th. It's a warning about the Drug War expansion, frighteningly accurate... we must not let the US Drug War reach further into Canada!

"Thank you for your support of marijuana prohibition and buy American pot!"
Repressed Memories - Disbanded Protest in Moscow
On the International Drug User's Day, November 1, 2009, activists organized a protest in front of the Federal Drug Control Service (FDCS) in Moscow to pay tribute to the memory of people died of drugs. The protesters laid flowers and white slippers (the symbol of death) on the doorsteps of the agency's building to remember the great number of lives claimed by inhumane Russian drug policy.
Every year thousands of people die in Russia because of drug related overdoses and infections - many of these deaths could be easily prevented with the help of evidence based harm reduction programs. Despite the evidence showing the effectiveness of these programs, the anti-drug agency pursues a war on drug users - and like in every wars, the first causulty is truth.
The peacful protest was ended by police brutality, five portesters were arrested and detained for five hours, later they were summoned to a magistrate court. This is how Russian authorities respond to citizens who express their opinion on government policies - and the rest of Europe is assisting because they prefer economic interests over human rights.
