ORIGINAL MISSION PARTY STATEMENT OF THE KENTUCKY MARIJUANA PARTY

Kentucky Marijuana Party Mission Statement (@ 2002)

The KYMJP seeks to remove all penalties for adults 21 and over who choose to consume cannabis in a responsible manner.

“We demand an end to the war on productive and otherwise law abiding citizens by the powers that be who claim to protect us.”

“We demand the right to use any medication our healthcare providers and we deem fit without government interference.”

We demand the release of all people imprisoned on marijuana charges and that their criminal records be expunged.

We demand that all property seized in marijuana raids be returned to the rightful owners at once.

 We demand that our law enforcement officers make more efficient use of our tax dollars and use the resources they have at their disposal to go after violent criminals and crimes that actually have victims.

We demand the right to grow marijuana for personal consumption, just as alcohol can be brewed at home legally so long as it is not sold untaxed.

We demand that you stop treating us like second class citizens for consuming something that is less dangerous than alcohol and tobacco, both of which are legal and cause numerous deaths each year. Cannabis has never caused one.

The Kentucky Marijuana Party

 

 

A few basic facts:

KENTUCKY MARIJUANA PARTY

“We are Anti-prohibitionists”

State Platform 2015

 

I do hereby submit that these “Issues” be addressed in the best interest of the State of KENTUCKY:

 1.         Freedom of  the plants Cannabis/Marijuana AND INDUSTRIAL HEMP for use by all people via a REPEAL of State and Federal Statutes – to be non-taxable when not in a “sale’s or marketing” environment, regulation thereof to be determined by a reputable state entity,

            a. Marketing/Sale’s of above products and taxable interests to be determined by a reputable State Government Entity,

            b. “Medical Marijuana” for use by all patients, to be non-taxable, when not in a “sale’s or marketing” environment.  Regulation thereof to be determined by a reputable State Entity,

            c. Hemp shall be freely planted, harvested, bought and sold, within the tax boundaries determined by said Government Entity in (a).

            Furthermore:

*Those person’s incarcerated for possession charges shall be immediately reprieved and all personal property returned.

 2.         Freedom to possess firearms, and freedom to carry said firearms, as well as freedom to protect one’s own life and property.

 3.         Coal Mining, Coal Ash (Fly and Ponds, etc.,), Mountain Top Removal Mining, Oil Drilling, Natural Gas Drilling to be regulated and enforced via an independent panel of Citizens of the State of Kentucky through to the Enforcement Agencies currently coordinating these efforts.

 4.         Abortion Issue – Although this Organization does not endorse the use of so called  “abortion clinics” nor the acts theretofore, it places neither blame nor legal claim against anyone for said “need” nor the “act of obtaining” an abortion.  This is to remain confidential information between the patient and Physician, and the regulation should be limited to and comprised of the normal requirements for any Physician or Medical Clinic to operate.

5.         Gambling Casino’s – Although the Organization does not endorse “gambling” it will hold no legal claim against the operation of any Casino(s) in the State of Kentucky and will be regulated by a reputable entity and taxed by a reputable Government entity to be overseen via an Independent Panel of Citizens of the State of Kentucky through to the Enforcement Agencies currently coordinating these efforts.

 6.         Drug Use and Abuse Issue’s (excluding Marijuana/Cannabis/Hemp as described in #1)***

            a.     Pertinent “Drugs” –

  1.     Any natural growing “herb or flowering plant or other plant” which produces euphoric and/or narcotic type of illusion/delusion such as salvia and mushrooms.

 2.     Any substance which is produced by chemical compounding, i.e., “crack, meth, ice,

 3.     Any liquid substance (with the exception of alcoholic beverages) shall be determined to fit in to #1 or #2 category.

 4.     Prescription drug abuse and pain clinics.

 b.    Heroin maintenance clinics” and “needle exchanges”

Immediately, there should be access to “clean needle exchanges” as well as “safe use environment”, including counseling shall be made available for those on IV Drugs.

 c.      Inpatient and outpatient abuse clinics shall be free of charge and open to everyone in the commonwealth of Kentucky with their request for help. 

 (The funding of these clinics shall be in large part paid for by the pharmaceutical enterprise  –  to be negotiated)

 7.         Mental Health Issue’s (excluding those covered in #6)

             Whereas the State of Kentucky is known to have an exceptional “mental health issues” a ‘mental health consortium’ should be formed to enact an immediate health benefit for all citizen’s in need of any type of mental healthcare psychiatric or psychological, or other ‘brain injury’ which affects the mental state.  Immediately clinics should be accessible to all and not based on ability to pay nor the lack of ability to pay. 

 8.         Pollution Standards – (including articles in #3)

             Whereas the State of Kentucky has had insufficient monitoring of its pollution of all kinds and as a result thereof caused undue illness and imposed upon its citizens unfair damage to their right to enjoyment of life because of said pollution,

The Organization proposes that those persons living in high risk areas be given the resources necessary to move out of those areas which are a threat to their health and welfare due to pollution of the air and/or ground coming from area industries and utilities.

 9.         Law Enforcement and Imprisonment Issue’s:

             a.         All Imprisonment shall be taken out of the hands of any other Entity other than the State or County government.  There shall be no more “privately run prison’s” in the State of Kentucky.

            b.         All personal needs shall be furnished either “free of charge” if a necessity or “at cost” if not a necessity.

            c.         Complaints of “brutality “or abuse of the incarcerated shall be handled immediately.

            d.         Prisoners rights shall be addressed.

e.          Those persons who are approached by law enforcement either on public property or private shall be treated fairly, humanely and “constitutionally”.  Abuse of power by police officers will be immediately handled in a manner which is fair to both parties involved and resolves the issue.  Any officer accused of brutality will be immediately removed from his position without pay until the issue has been resolved.  IF the officer is found not guilty, then at that time his pay shall be resumed and “lost wages” paid.

10.        Death Penalty Issue:

 Be it known that there will be an immediate request for a moratorium on the “Death Penalty” in the State of Kentucky…           

My Thoughts

The Government regulated Incorporated war on Marijuana and Hemp have destroyed the country we live in by replacing what is a totally natural substance with a host of chemical compounds for our every need. Problem is that the chemicals will kill us, the Marijuana and HEMP will help to save us.

The Kentucky Marijuana Party will address any issue concerning Cannabis/Marijuana/Hemp Prohibition, Human Rights and Civil Rights, as we believe in adhering to the “original” Constitutional Rights of all United States Citizens.

We most certainly believe in the REPEAL OF THE PROHIBITION OF MARIJUANA/CANNABIS AND HEMP!

The laws regarding cannabis were born on the wings of lies and pampered by propaganda such that now the tightly held belief systems are going to have to reckon with the desire of all humanity to live with dignity, free from the oppressive tyranny that ignorance and bigotry have spawned.

Hello my name is Eric Welch and I have written a play based on my story, but added a crazy twist to it. It will have its World Premier at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts in July. I am looking for all the help possible spreading the word about this play. Below is a link to more information and more about my story. I spent 2 years in prison for marijuana, but got 5 years. I’m in my last year with the government. Please if you have any outlet I would greatly appreciate it. http://kck.st/Iqym7V

    Kentucky Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty Why abolish the death penalty in Kentucky?

    It's costly.
    It's out of step with modern thinking.
    It's risky.
    It's unfair, broken, and arbitrary.
    It's unnecessary.
    Victims' families deserve better.

  • Kentucky, “Dark and Dangerous Ground”

    The Dark and Bloody Ground

    The popular belief that the name Kentucky means "Dark and Bloody Ground" is apparently without foundation. Yet through the years, the image has persisted in literary and oral tradition as a description of the Kentucky country.

    One traditional explanation sites Delaware legend in which the ancient tribe of the Lenni-Lanape allied with the Iroquois to fight the Allegewi, the original inhabitants of Kentucky. In a single bloody battle the Allegewi were virtually exterminated. The land where an entire nation had been eradicated became known as the "dark and bloody ground". The violent clashes between the Iroquois and the southern Indians only helped reinforce the image.

    In his book, "Historical Sketches of Kentucky" (1874), Richard H. Collins says that a northern Indian once asked Indian fighter Joseph H. Daveiss how white men could live in land that had seen so much bloodshed. The Indian said that the ghosts of those killed in the Indian wars haunted the land making it dangerous.

    At the execution of the Treaty of Sycamore Shoals the Cherokee Cheif Dragging Canoe is said to have told Col. Richard Henderson that the lands south of the Kentucky river were "bloody ground"and would be "dark and difficult to settle". However Ruben T. Durrett said in his book, "The Centenary of Kentucky"(1892) that the phrase was used to discourage Henderson from purchasing the land.

  • Our Environment

    Toxic chemicals in our environment, such as mercury, lead, and certain manmade chemicals, have been linked to cancer, birth defects and brain impairments. Reducing or eliminating the load of these dangerous chemicals in the products we buy, the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink can help reduce the toll of human disease and suffering.

  • PLEASE DO NOT USE!

    PLEASE DO NOT USE SO CALLED "SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA" OR "SPICE" SOLD UNDER AN EVER INCREASING VARIETY OF NAMES! IT IS NOT MARIJUANA AT ALL AND I AM INSULTED THAT THE WORDS SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA ARE USED TO DESCRIBE THESE SUBSTANCES! "FAKE DRUGS" WOULD SUFFICE! THEY KILL! PLEASE COPY AND OPEN THE LINK BELOW TO READ ONE STORY ABOUT THESE "FAKE DRUGS"! http://www.therepublic.com/view/story/60e0b41dcfeb4c8896f89c4a7409dc99/KY--Synthetic-Drugs/ PARENTS, WATCH YOUR CHILDREN! BETTER TO OFFER THEM THE REAL THING THAN TAKE A CHANCE ON THEM GETTING A HOLD OF SUCH GOD-AWFUL SUBSTANCES! "...Officials said the powdery substance sold as bath salts mimic the effects of cocaine, ecstasy and LSD. It can be snorted, injected or mixed with drinks for food. The chemicals can cause hallucinations, paranoia, rapid heart rates, violent behavior and suicidal thoughts. Synthetic marijuana contains organic leaves coated with chemicals that provide a marijuana-like high when smoked. The product is marketed under various brands include Spice and K2. The synthetic drugs can be purchased on the Internet and in some tobacco and smoke shops, drug paraphernalia shops, gas stations and convenience stores..." OF NOTE: THESE PRODUCTS ARE MOST OFTEN USED BY THOSE WHO ARE FORCED TO SUBMIT TO "DRUG TESTIING".... THAT IS WHY THAT THEY HAVE BECOME SO POPULAR ALONG WITH THE FACT THAT THEY ARE READILY AVAILABLE FOR SALE TO MINORS - OR SOMEONE WHO WOULD PURCHASE FOR A MINOR. THIS HAS TO STOP!
