I read Michael Bates’s latest blog post encouraging people to vote no on SQ788 and was struck by his account of a local doctor’s opinion on State Question 788. It’s as if the doctor whom he cites has gotten his information from “Everything You Need to Know About THC” by James Lankford. If Mr. Bates is accurate that this doctor truly believes that “ALL of the health benefits of cannabis are currently available in full spectrum hemp oil [which he apparently sells out of his clinic], without the side effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive substance found in marijuana,” then the doctor is deficient in facts or Mr. Bates has misunderstood the doctor.
It’s true that “full spectrum hemp oil” has beneficial qualities, but it only scratches the surface. THC is also an important compound. The problem we have now in Oklahoma is that the legal amount of THC in our state (less than three-tenths of one percent) is simply not adequate in the treatment of many diseases. People with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Tourette syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, and Epilepsy need access to higher levels of THC. For gastrointestinal disorders like Crohn’s, THC is crucial for healing.

I certainly do not claim to be an expert on this subject, however I find the topic very intriguing on several levels. Its medicinal benefits, the origin of its prohibition beginning in the 1930s, the economic and political aspects of its prohibition including industries that benefit financially from…

Lysander Spooner argued that voting was a legitimate means of self-defense against the State, and noted that many supporters of the State consider both voting and abstention to be acknowledgments of the State’s legitimacy. I have swung like a pendulum to varying degrees and extremes regarding government, the State, politics, voting, and ideology. Since you’re […]

Thought and action consistent with freedom via counter economics. Yes, there are individuals doing this. Maximizing freedom; minimizing state.
Ahead of the Decentralize Your Life Tour, we will be touching on some relative terms and concepts such as Agorism, crypto currency, and Freedom Cells. Chet Payne will share his enlightening experience volunteering at Freedom Ranch and attending Anarchapulco where these ideals are practiced.

When it comes to personal freedom, I (Doug) have found that it happens in different layers and areas of our lives at different times of our own and our community’s growth. Mental, emotional, spiritual, time, and economic freedom are the ones that I have encountered in my own journey.
This month at Liberty on Tap, we will explore some different facets of what freedom looks like on an economic level, including adapting to the new economy and the advent of the internet, the popularization of entrepreneurship, and crypto-currencies such as BitCoin.
Did you know that you can purchase just about all of your groceries from farmers right here in Oklahoma? Not only do you support the local economy but you are also supporting families just like yours. You also support healthier, ethically produced food instead of feeding the factory farms (which are horrendous). We have a special treat for you in June as our guests will be: Kris Gosney of Cattle Tracks Beef (Fairview, OK), Daniel and Maria of Grassroots Ranch (Tulsa) and Marie with Our Farm (Tulsa).
Together these farmers provide high quality beef, pork, chicken, eggs, dairy, and produce.
I know there will be many questions for them and we will learn so much about what ethical, healthy farming is.
**We will also be taking donations again for the Beck girls (Cash, Food, etc). There were no winners for the “Know Your Rights” CD that Jay Ramey so generously donated or for the Liberty on Tap Tshirt last month. Everyone who donates will be entered into a drawing for one of those fabulous prizes.**
