Stop listening to him years ago when he started running commercials for pyramid scheme. Yeah he had the legal right to do it, but how can you trust a man who claims to be looking out for the community when he pulls crap like that. That and I learned too much about his family.

He is a crook and scam artist; went to a meeting with him when he was coming down, wanted the merchants to pay him a salary, furnish a place to live and pay for his business license. People should have realized what he was when the Rock and Roll Rewind went bust--he supposedly had 100's of stations signed up to market STX--what a crock.

It's not the person. It is the vehicle for the message. Expand your paradigm.

Makes? Sells coffee made somewhere stateside I believe. I get your point though she is a nice lady, but hes a piece of work.

I can't believe in any message that comes from a messenger so tainted. Its a small island and when you try to make yourself the center of attention and claim all these virtuous things you better be able to back it up or run for senator.

Linda, just a question. I listened to part of the broadcast (podcast which suddenly went dead) but I heard you state that you do not use MJ but had in the past cooked with it. On the Norml site however, you say "I am currently a Montana Medical Marijuana patient with strong ties to Michigan." Does that mean you use it in Montana but not elsewhere? Is it legal in MT?

I do hold a Montana Medical Marijuana patient card. It was recommended to me for my severe pain from Fibromyalgia and my stomach issues due to my Celiac. I tried a tincture that was recommended while in Montana. I chose not to use it (or any MJ) at that time. I would have been legal to use while in Michigan as Michigan is one of the reciprocating states. You are allowed to use per Michigan's rules as long as you are a valid card holder from an MJ state. Aside from trying tincture and a couple brownies in Montana, I haven't used in years.

It was a good show. We got constant calls. Too bad WAPA is anti-mj and took down the feeders!!! LOL!!!!

I listened to the show also. If anything, it turned me off your cause a little more.

One caller called the program and asked why MJ, which was legal at one time, was deemed illegal by the government. Was it due to MJ being harmful? Was it health reasons? Was is because it is addictive? Was it due to side effects? Did the government perform studies?

The answer was, because in 1921 the all powerful plastic empire wanted to eliminate competitors.

The caller, like many people, wanted facts not conspiracy theories. Anyone can answer any question with a conspiracy theory no matter how far fetched it sounds.

DuPont, William Randolph Hearst, and hemp
The decision of the United States Congress to pass the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 was based on hearings,[21] reports[22] and in part on testimony derived from articles in newspapers owned by William Randolph Hearst, who had significant financial interests in the timber industry, which manufactured his newsprint.[23]

Cannabis activist Jack Herer has researched DuPont and in his 1985 book The Emperor Wears No Clothes, Herer concluded DuPont played a large role in the criminalization of cannabis. In 1938, DuPont patented the processes for creating plastics from coal and oil and a new process for creating paper from wood pulp. If hemp had been largely exploited, Herer believes it would have likely been used to make paper and plastic (nylon), and may have hurt DuPont's profits. Andrew Mellon of the Mellon Bank was DuPont's chief financial backer and was also the Secretary of the Treasury under the Hoover administration. Mellon appointed Harry J. Anslinger, who later became his nephew-in-law, as the head of the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (FBNDD) and the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN), where Anslinger stayed until 1962.[24]

For more info: Uticca, If you have any specific questions I would be pleasedto try to provide an answer.I

I don't have a dog in this race about legalizing MJ but the response was correct. Nylon replaced the hemp rope that was used on big ships. Hemp is one of the strongest natural fibers in the world.

"Herer concluded DuPont played a large role in the criminalization of cannabis." -- It really doesn't surprise me that a cannabis activist "concluded" that the powerful plastic empire was to blame for all of MJ's faults.

"If hemp had been largely exploited, Herer believes it would have likely been used to make paper and plastic (nylon), and may have hurt DuPont's profits."-- I kinda like to see studies and research done, not what an activists "believes".

I mean I can "believe" and "conclude" a lot of things, doesn't make them a fact though.

Uticca, pick up a copy of "The Emperor Wears no Clothes" and I think you will become enlightened on the reason cannabis became illegal during a late night congressional session in 1937...Big business lobbying to fatten their pockets at the expense of others. The US has fallen for this propaganda for FAR too long now....

Linda I heard part of the program and you absolutely stunned the man when you said you weren't using. LOL
I would have loved to seen the look on his face LOLRAOTF
I can think of nothing you could have said that would be more convincing to the idea your support was not based on a need for another toke (tu)

Baring every other argument for and against it is just plain hypocritical to sanction one person's "poison" over another's.
This kind of hypocracy is extremely detrimental toward any person's or entity moral authority to oppose the use of any substance.
Kids especially can spot a hypocrite a mile away and so undermines anything the speaker tries to accomplish.

Seems to me there used to be a commercial showing a parent with a cig in one hand an a drink in the other lecturing a teen about the evils of the killer devil weed........ real moral imperative there for sure.

roger p morgan is great. I think there are allot of jealous people here on the island who spend all their time complaining about non native virgin islanders coming down and starting productive businesses. Stop complaining and get off your lazy butts and create something that will benefit the islands. Its easy to sit back and complain. Talk is cheap

Mike the majority on this board are originally not from the usvi. So nobodies pickin on him because he's not originally from here. You know little about roger morgan if you think he's great. He's more like a local politician in my mind.
