International Terrorist Organization Continues Efforts Towards World Domination

The INCB (International Narcotics Control Board) is an international terrorist organization with influence in more countries than al-Qaeda. It even receives material support for its activities from the U.N.

The INCB has members from around the world who meet in secret and whose stated goal is to impose their interpretation of drug treaties on the rest of the world (especially their holy text — The Single Convention), even to the point of coercing entire governments to function as assassins and kidnappers on their behalf.

These governments, acting under an agreement with the terrorist group, have kidnapped millions of peaceful citizens, often keeping them confined for years, executing some, and applying the tactics of terror on innocent victims (shooting their dogs, etc.), using fear to promote their agenda.

In addition to their government puppets, the INCB terrorists are allied with Mexican cartels and other criminal organizations who couldn’t exist without the holy warriors of the Single Convention.

This terrorist organization has released a statement indicating their disappointment with the government of Bolivia for denouncing the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs:

Such approach would undermine the integrity of the global drug control system, undoing the good work of Governments over many years to achieve the aims and objectives of the drug control conventions, including the prevention of drug abuse which is devastating the lives of millions of people.

The international drug control conventions are the corner stone of international efforts to prevent the illicit production, manufacture, traffic in and abuse of drugs while at the same time ensuring that licit drugs are available for medical and scientific purposes. The almost universal adherence to these conventions is testimony to Governments’ trust in the international drug control system and a pre-requisite for the treaties’ effectiveness to prevent drug trafficking and abuse. […]

The Board has the responsibility to bring any threat to the international drug control system to the attention of States parties.

The way to stop these terrorist organizations is to stop giving them power.

    Now we wait and see what kind of coercion the INCB and the United States applies to bring Bolivia back into the fold. Whatever the plan, it’s devious and designed to hurt the Bolivian people. Unfortunately those two entities can bring a whole lot of pressure to bear on Morales’ government. I am interested to see if the U.N. issues something more that a tissue-paper condemnation. Bolivia will need resolve to stay this sensible course.

      Usually the US uses money to bribe the countries that disagree. There’s at least a decent chance that Mr. Morales is a true believer and can’t be bribed. Of course the tables could be turned if Mr. Morales is willing to engage in the brinkmanship of stating that if Bolivia doesn’t get paid that they’re going to make up the lost income by exporting coca paste or even ready to use cocaine, and that the US can kiss his ass if they don’t like it.

    20 million criminalized and a trillion tax dollars into the pockets of the very same drug war brokers and protagonists. Piss on those responsible for a century of misery, terrorism and murder upon the American citizens and through out the world. First…

    Harry Jacob Anslinger (May 20, 1892 – November 14, 1975) held office as the Assistant Prohibition Commissioner in the Bureau of Prohibition, before being appointed as the first Commissioner of the Treasury Department’s Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN) on August 12, 1930.

    He held office an unprecedented 32 years in his role holding office until 1962. He then held office two years as US Representative to the United Nations Narcotics Commission. The responsibilities once held by Harry J. Anslinger are now largely under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy. Anslinger died at the age of 83 of heart failure in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania.

    Anslinger is buried in Hollidaysburg Presbyterian Cemetery,

    Pissing on Drug Warrior Graves
    Dean Becker Huffington Post July 9, 2009

    “For years and years, information and evidence being collected by the counterintelligence operations of certain U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies has been prevented from being transferred to criminal and narcotics divisions, and from being shared with the Drug Enforcement Agency and others with prosecutorial power. Those with direct knowledge have been prevented from making this information available and public by various gag orders and invocation of the State Secrets Privilege. Why?”
    ~ Sibel Edmonds

    Coca, Bolivia, and Law 1008
    Bolivian President Evo Morales wants to make coca leaves the new hemp, but critics believe his promotion of the plant used to create cocaine will just boost the illegal drug trade. The wine, a bit on the sweet side, is supposedly a remedy against Parkinson’s disease and impotence and, according to the label, it is especially suitable for “athletes and singers.” In small doses, that is, because the wine is pressed from coca leaves, enhancing the effect of the alcohol. If you get drunk, you don’t have to worry about how you’re going to feel the next day because “coca wine doesn’t cause a hangover,” says Melby Paz.

    UN Urges Bolivia to Make Coca Chewing a Crime, Report Says
    By Joshua Goodman – March 4, 2008 (Bloomberg)
    The United Nations called on Bolivia and Peru to criminalize the chewing of coca leaves, a practice used by Andean peasants for centuries.

    The INCB has also recently been pushing for criminalization of plant-based psychedelics, like ayahuasca, cacti, and magic mushrooms (currently completely outside all international drug treaties – the purified chemicals might be scheduled, but the plants and extracts like tea are clearly and explicitly not included).

    INCB 2010 report: “…such plants are often used outside of their original socio-economic context to exploit substance abusers… Potential abusers have been using the Internet to inform themselves about the stimulating or hallucinogenic properties of such plant material, about the fact that the plant material is not under international control and about Internet sites through which the plant material can be purchased.”

    http://www.iceers.org/what-we-do/campaigns.html

    What an odd way of thinking, psychedelic plants are used to “exploit substance abusers”??

    These substances have been used for thousands of years in religious ceremonies. The UN Declaration of Human Rights gives people absolute freedom to change religion or belief and practice in public or private, in groups or alone – you don’t have to be an “indigenous person” to use psychedelics as part of your personal spiritual practice. (Note that international human rights law has a much broader definition of religion and belief than is typically used in US courts.)

      Yes, well it seems that they don’t recognize use of cannabis in religion either. The Rastafari have been doing so at least since 1930 when the Rastafarian Pilgrims landed in Jamaica. Cannabis was completely legal in Jamaica in 1930 so the lame excuse of ‘just wanting to get high legally’ can’t be reasonably argued. Bob Marley preferred death at 36 to the amputation of one of his big toes, and I don’t see any way possible to argue that isn’t the act of a fanatic religionist.

      Then there’s the Hindus who have incorporated cannabis into their religion for 10s and 10s of centuries. There is no doubt that bhang is a religious sacrament in the Hindu faith.

      But then one of the longest traditions in human religionism is abject hypocrisy when it comes to recognizing other cultures religions. I do recall reading that the Founding Fathers thought that the 1st Amendment would allow Americans to choose any branch of the Protestant Church that they favored, not any or no religion.

      Pushing for criminalization of psychedelics gives the lie to the pretense that the purpose of prohibition is to prevent “addiction.” Psychedelics are not addictive – rats will not self-administer them – but humans use them for their effects on cognition. Even Mark Kleiman says that psychedelics should not be criminalized. The INCB is actually interested in punishing deviant thoughts, not protecting the public health.

      • Leonard Junior

        Actually I read a Huffpost: green article that says animals will sometimes eat psychedelic mushrooms in small enough quantities to experience a trip. Fascinating stuff.

    “prevention of drug abuse which is devastating the lives of millions of people.”

    What about the prevention of power abuse which is devastating the lives of billions of people?

    Not to demonize them, but at least one of the greatest abusers of power is the mainstream media, who advertises that they are feeding us all needed information without bias. But, as anyone in our movement can plainly witness, extreme bias is constantly presented related to our issue, and such bias is why the war on some drugs exists.

    Given its generally broad scope of destruction, the abuse of power is the worst form of abuse, and therefore should be ‘public enemy #1’.

    It is scary that the masses continue to accept that the abuse of power is appropriate to oppose the abuse of certain drugs.

    It is more scary that the people responsible for reporting such power abuse to the masses are themselves abusing power.

    There apparently is nothing more challenging than preventing the abuse of power.

    Good people are obligated to meet that challenge to improve society.

    Bad people abuse power to simply target the relatively weak minorities (e.g. cannabis users), lying to the masses by proclaiming a benefit from such abuse.

    The unalienable right to liberty is supposed to protect the majority as well as the minority, by preventing the authority for anyone in power to define liberty. The only limit against your liberty is the right itself (i.e. you cannot infringe upon another person’s liberty — direct infringement is supposed to be the sole source of criminal law).

    Either you believe the people in power should define liberty, or you do not. There is no middle ground, given the slippery slope inevitably created from such ground that decays into the people in power defining liberty.

    May the masses come to realize that to meet the aforementioned challenge.

    It’s a drastic option, but it’s getting to be time that we should consider the option of synchronously farting in their general direction, particularly those of our fellow cannabinoidians who use cannabis as relief for IBS. That will send them running for cover for certain. Would that violate the law against the use of chemical weapons, or would that only apply to deployment of synthetic farts? If naturally produced farts are OK, can we enhance their lethality by eating certain foods before deployment and still be within the boundaries of International law?

    PS It really is nice seeing all the new names posting here lately. This column still needs at least one dedicated Know Nothing prohibitionist to object to the common sense ideals promoted here though. Only one small step away from the major leagues for Pete.

    Oddly enough, the farts of an IBS sufferer are generally odor free. There’s a tidbit I wish I didn’t know.

    • Duncan20903

      Well that’s what I get for thinking that Dr. House knows what he’s talking about. He diagnosed a patient with IBS within seconds of walking into the examination room from the odor, and then told him to smoke 2 cigarettes a day, oddly enough “no more or less”. Marlboros or Carltons Dr. House? If it’s the nicotine why not use patches or nicotine gum?

      What really bothers me is just how boring Dr. House became after quitting his Vicodin addiction. Why in the heck would a fictional character that has a fictional addiction become boring after going through fictional rehab? George Carlin, Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, and Aerosmith all suffered from being –{yawn}– boring after they quit, but that was real life. Plus all of the comics named above returned to being interesting after their brains readjusted to not having the dopamine levels artificially inflated. Just to make it slightly more intriguing Dr. House suffered a fictional relapse, and has returned to being interesting. He’s probably going to jail next season as last season ended with him committing a major, violent felony.

        I don’t like where this conversation is going….I would advise those not directly involved to turn away now before it’s too late….
        IBS is awful, Duncan, I have it. IBS sufferers often have a very difficult time passing gas at all. The spasms move stuff back and forth or just compact them in one place, leading to “pelleting”. You shit like a goat. It’s unbelievable pain. If you ain’t been there you can’t know. Luckily I don’t have it so bad, but if I change my diet, eat fried foods, Salmon, or any number of other foods, I’m in trouble and need a quiet place to go lie in agony for about eight hours. Otherwise, excessive stress is a big trigger, and sleep, lack of sleep is a biggie. But compared to some others I do pretty well. But because IBS sufferers tend to be very careful about thier diets, not much in the smell department.

    On June 17, 1971, President Nixon told Congress that “if we cannot destroy the drug menace in America, then it will surely destroy us.” After forty years of trying to destroy “the drug menace in America” we still *haven’t* been able to destroy it and it still *hasn’t* destroyed us. Four decades is long enough to realize that on this important issue, President Nixon was wrong! All actions taken as a result of his invalid and paranoid assumptions (e.g. the federal marijuana prohibition) should be ended immediately!

    It makes no sense for taxpayers to fund the federal marijuana prohibition when it *doesn’t* prevent people from using marijuana and it *does* make criminals incredibly wealthy and incite the Mexican drug cartels to murder thousands of people every year.

    We need legal adult marijuana sales in supermarkets, gas stations and pharmacies for exactly the same reason that we need legal alcohol and tobacco sales – to keep unscrupulous black-market criminals out of our neighborhoods and away from our children. Marijuana must be made legal to sell to adults everywhere that alcohol and tobacco are sold.

    “There’s something extraordinarily perverse when we’re so concerned about preventing addicts from having access to drugs that we destroy the lives of many times more people, either through untreated pain or other drug war damage”.

    I think it’s inappropriate for the INCB to publically slander the honor and the presidency of Evo Morales, as well as the good Bolivian people, by issuing an utter screed without bothering to work out their problems within diplomatic channels, and in private, with President Morales and his government.

    President Morales can now easily achieve a superior legal and political status within the world community by suing the INCB terrorist bastards in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for crimes against humanity. Really. There aren’t that many members of the INCB. And most of the INCB people appear to be dusty old academics with no future beyond the drug war. In court, the INCB will be throwing bricks in a glass house. Their prohibitionism won’t stand a chance.

    An ICJ lawsuit against the INCB alleging crimes against humanity for prosecuting a failed drug war would halt much of international harassment of Bolivia, as any such disputes would then be adjudicated in the ICJ. A legal action would also succeed by putting the dominionist INCB on the defensive, forcing them to defend ludicrous statements like ‘ [Bolivia is] undoing the good work of Governments over many years to achieve the aims and objectives of the drug control conventions, including the prevention of drug abuse which is devastating the lives of millions of people .’

    If millions of people are having their lives devastated by drugs, how can the INCB claim they’re doing good work? It sounds like one big catastrophe to me. And it’s happened on the INCB’s watch. The INCB can’t even appear coherent in public, and that’s a bad argument for sobriety.

  • Great post. Something I found years ago in Cannabis News

    «The war on drugs was designed to fail. It was designed to increase drug use, atomize society, impoverish people, spread illness, increase unemployment, destroy lives, imprison productive people, subvert democracy, shred the Constitution, empower the ignorant and brutal, create a police state, destroy the educational system, hold people in ignorance, manipulate and censor the news, and enrich a tiny puritanical minority of mega-millionaires and corporate bosses. It has succeeded in all these objectives.

    Decriminalization is not enough. The control of drugs must be completely removed from government and its outlaw associates and placed in the hands of citizens.»

    What if we made an “antidote” for drug users entering prisons, this could make current drug users unresponsive to continued drug in prison and after release. It could be thought of like the drug Chantix, makes brain receptors unresponsive to the drug such as meth coke, ecstasy, etc. Obviously someone would need to make something to be able to do this, but if it was actually done there wouldn’t be a war on drugs if the drug users no longer can feel the high thus would hurt Mexicos drug business. I feel like our approach is an unobtainable one by controlling our borders, we need to start being creative and as a country that loves it’s pharmaceutical companies, perhaps we need to put them to work.
