Fresno, CA – A drug bust after a 911 “butt-dial” has landed two careless crooks in prison.
Nathan Teklemariam and Carson Rinehart were recently arrested in Fresno. They were nabbed at a drug bust after a 911 butt-dial. Essentially, one of them accidentally called 911, and the pair were recorded as they talked about scoring drugs and breaking into a car.
The 911 operator tried to get their attention, but eventually just stopped and listened in, because let’s face it … these boys were too interesting to interrupt.
Looking to pass some time:

MATAMOROS, Mexico – Just across the Rio Grande from Brownsville, Texas, stands a dormitory-style shelter filled with people recently deported from the U.S. and other migrants waiting to cross the border.
The long rows of bunk beds offer immigrants a place to rest on their long journey. But the shelter is no safe haven in a town controlled by the Gulf cartel. Armed men once showed up and took away 15 men, who were probably put to work as gunmen, lookouts or human mules hauling bales of marijuana into the United States.
Police Officers Kicks Down Door, No Warrant, No Probable Cause,Tazes Occupant Filming
This happened in Cotati, California. Watch how the police break down this mans door and taser him nearly to death.
Police State America. What can be done about these actions by the police?
It is clear the man filming was not a threat, yet he is still abused by these officers.
How did America come to be a police state where citizens have no rights?

In 2009, the global pharmaceutical market was worth an estimated $837 billions and by 2014, the amount expected to rise at least $1 trillion dollars. What helps to keep state-sanctioned cannabis dealers in business so far is the fact the pharmaceuticals cannot legally patent the plant that makes marijuana.
Medical marijuana is often referred as the world’s wonder drug, a simple substance which provides effective treatment for pain, cancer, nausea, PMS, Lyme disease, ADD and other major ailments.
In a study conducted by Reiman, 66 percent of patients used cannabis as [...]

As Colorado, California and Washington including 16 other states enjoy freedom under state law to operate legal medical marijuana-cannabis businesses the owners are often faced with arrests and constant harassment by federal government known as the DEA(Drug Enforcement Administration). Though some states have legalized the sell of marijuana for medical purposes the practice yet remains a felony crime under federal law. Even if marijuana operators avoid arrests, the almighty Feds inflict more damage by imposing astronomical “high taxes” on a state-sanctioned marijuana-cannabis, taxes as high as 75-80 percent. Some dealers, unable to [...]
But the AP affair pales next to the IRS and Benghazi
by Jack Kelly / Post Gazette
Though arguably the least significant of three burgeoning scandals that have made this the worst fortnight ever for the presidency of Barack Obama, the Justice Department’s covert seizure of the telephone records of Associated Press reporters may cause him the most grief. Journalists unmoved by evidence his Justice Department ran guns to Mexican drug cartels and promoted vote fraud are very, very upset.
Some Democrats who parroted administration talking points on Benghazi jumped ship after the Internal Revenue Service admitted [...]
The crew from PGFD Truck 831 eneded up with something that wasn’t on their grocery list when they made a stop for food Wednesday at a store in Calverton, Maryland. They found a naked man on the tip of the aerial ladder. Working with PGPD, firefighters maneuvered the ladder and eventually the man came down for a meeting with the police officers. It ended with a tasing.
According to PGFD, the person shouted threats and performed lewd acts to himself while climbing on the ladder bed. The man was taken to an area hospital after he [...]

In recent years, the ‘Ndrangheta has become the largest and most feared of the four criminal organizations in Italy, alongside the Camorra in the Naples area, Cosa Nostra in Sicily and Sacra Corona Unita in Apulia. Specializing in drug trafficking, the ‘Ndrangheta has globalized in recent years. Our reporter investigates in Calabria, the organization’s heartland.
The ‘Ndrangheta controls the majority of international cocaine traffic, with an estimated 80 percent monopoly on European imports of the white powder. The organisation pulls in 44 billion euros a year; that’s almost three percent of Italy’s [...]
Review by Organisation of American States on illicit drugs ‘could mark beginning of the end’ of prohibition
by Jamie Doward / The Guardian
European governments and the Obama administration are this weekend studying a “gamechanging” report on global drugs policy that is being seen in some quarters as the beginning of the end for blanket prohibition.
Publication of the Organisation of American States (OAS) review, commissioned at last year’s Cartagena Summit of the Americas attended by Barack Obama, reflects growing dissatisfaction among Latin American countries with the current global policy on illicit drugs. It spells out the [...]
