School That Fired Teacher Over Hemp Views Violated First Amendment Protections, Appeals Court Says Award-Winning Teacher's Advocacy Motivated Firing, Justices Rule. (Cincinnati, OH): A Shelby County, Kentucky public school district's decision to abruptly fire an award-winning fifth-grade teacher was motivated in part by her decision to speak to her class about industrial hemp, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati unanimously ruled last week.

Their decision overturns a previous lower court judgment dismissing the teacher's First Amendment retaliation claim against the district.

!The 1995 NHSDA and Census Bureau numbers also reveal at least 150,040 marijuana consumers in Oregon.

Have you any idea of the taxes you're paying in the ongoing effort to build prisons for them all? 
Follow those numbers. . . . 

Your tax dollars at work

You can help end the war on drugs just by asking
every elected official and candidate for public office
for a straight answer to one simple question: 

Exactly how many drug offenders
do you want to put in prison
to have the best results? 

!The government's own statistics say that 71 percent of cannabis consumers and other illegal-drug users age 18 and older are gainfully employed, compared to just 63.3 percent of the general population age 16 and older. 

only 35 percent of the general population age 12 and older has smoked marijuana. 
So . . .Question mark
How does imprisoning and fining marijuana offenders and trying to make them unemployed and homeless help to promote "family values"
