AS TEST SUBJECTS, SNITCHES?
By Andrew W. Griffin
ED: When I was young and foolish, I participated in a government-sponsored marijuana experiment. For three months a group of women lived in a highly controlled environment and smoked super quality weed. Twice a day we were forced (unless ill) to sit down for 20 minutes to lower our heart rates, then our pulses taken multiple times during each session, etc. We had to smoke, per session, two marijuana cigarettes. I say cigarette nod joint or whatever because these were professionally rolled just like regular cigarettes. 24/7 we were observed at whatever we were doing ~ the complete surveillance society. Every 20 minutes someone came around and made note of activity, companionship, mood and whatever else. These studies were for the LeDain Commission. BTW the pot grown in Canada by the RCMP was stolen; we used pot from Mississippi instead. And it was mighty fine if I remember correctly. These police sound like fools!
& THE DRE PROGRAM AT PEAVEY PLAZA
Video documentation [shown below] by local activists and independent media shows that police officers and county deputies from across Minnesota have been picking up young people near Peavey Plaza for a training program to recognize drug-impaired drivers. Multiple participants say officers gave them illicit drugs and provided other incentives to take the drugs. The Occupy movement, present at Peavey Plaza since April 7th, appears to be targeted as impaired people are dropped off at the Plaza, and others say they’ve been rewarded for offering to snitch on the movement.
“I think most people would be very surprised to have our tax dollars used to get people high,” states Michelle Gross, president of Communities United Against Police Brutality. “These activities call into question the methods and motives of this DRE training.”
