How to Make Marijuana Stronger (and other Herbs too)

https://new-media.merryjane.com/sfSYR-zBOfXYePktVRn_hYRqoJE=/files.merryjane.com/uploads/article/small_image/258/1mango.jpg










There have been many articles about this subject, but none that have all of the information contained in this article. Many people at one point or another wonder if they can have the same feeling as their first time smoking Marijuana again, with time slowing down, and extreme giggling, etc, without having to take a long break from using Marijuana, and the answer is, yes. There are various ways to potentiate THC. Potentiating is different than piggy backing, in that potentiaters are primers, while piggy backing is adding one thing to another. Basically, Synergy effect V Combination effect. This article is about Synergy, not Combination effects. Potentiation/Priming, not piggy backing.

Terpenes. The most common thing you may find when researching this topic is Mangoes. There are many articles that exist that state that Mangoes will make Marijuana stronger. The reason for this is because of Terpenes, specifically a Terpene called Myrcene. Terpenes are an entire subject unto themselves, and are actually a big part of some new Medical Marijuana "technology" such as live Resin, which is Hash with Terpenes added to it (because most Terpenes are lost in the vacuum stage of high grade extractions). Terpenes are what give Marijuana its smell, and flavors, but Myrcene, and possibly other terpenes, actually have an effect on how THC works in your body. Myrcene is slightly analgesic and is known to strengthen the effects of Marijuana. Lemonene, another Terpene, has also been shown to strengthen the effects of Marijuana. For example, when Lemonene is used to extract THC from Marijuana, and the resulting liquid is left to evaporate, Lemonene cannot be completely evaporated and so leaves a residue of itself in the hash, and Lemonene extractions have won awards for their strength in comparison to other extractions. And while Myrcene is present in Mangoes, and drinking Mango juice could possibly give you enough Myrcene to potentiate THC. The best way to potentiate with Terpenes is Lemon Grass, Lemon Grass can be bought cheap and in bulk, and contains both Lemonene and Myrcene in large amounts. It can be added to a Marijuana extraction and extracted right along side it, or made into butter with Marijuana. This method achieves much much better results than Mangoes. Myrcene can also be found in beer, as it is what gives Hops their smell and flavor.

THCv. This is actually a Cannabinoid, similar to THC, CBD, etc. THCv is found in African Marijuana strains, such as Durban Poison and Malawi Gold. THCv is an Antagonist of the CB1 receptor, meaning that it may have effects similar to THC but is said to be more psychedelic and strengthen the effects of THC, and is believed to possibly be the reason for "One hitter quitter" strains. It is also a CB2 Partial Agonist, which means that it does not cause munchies and can actually decrease appetite.

Kava Kava. This is not Kratom, I know the names are completely different but many people confused Kava Kava with Kratom. They are 2 completely different things. Kava Kava, or just Kava, is a relative of the Pepper plant and can be found in Hawaii and on a few other islands. It has become so wide spread that many large cities in America even have Kava bars, where you can drink Kava. Kava mainly contains molecules known as Kavalactones, but also contains a Cannabinoid called Yangonin. Yangonin is a very little known Cannabinoid, but can have a strong synergy with THC. Kava when mixed with water and consumed like coffee or tea, is a very bitter substance that tastes a lot like dirt water, and has the signature effect of making your mouth go numb (actual numbness, not because of the horrible flavor). It is sold as capsules at most pharmacies over the counter, and can either be bought as capsules or put into capsules by hand. Extractions can be made from Kava just like from Marijuana or Lemon Grass, but you do not want to smoke Kava as it has a horrible flavor and has a taste reminiscent of Chlorine. The best way to consume it is in a capsule, but for the whole mouth numbing experience, you would drink it as a tea.

Uziza. This is a plant from Nigeria and few people outside of Nigeria even know that it exists. It is a relative of Pepper and used to be used all around Europe, but somehow fell out of popular use as a table spice, and is now mainly found only in its home country of Nigeria. In Nigeria it is used to make a soup that increases your appetite and is fed to people when they are sick, and it is actually a CB2 receptor Antagonist. Meaning that when it increases your appetite, it is using the same route to do that as Marijuana does when you get the munchies. It is said not to have any effects on the CB1 receptor, but there are also very few people in the world that have ever smoked it. But smoked, it does seem to cause a short buzz. And many people say that Tobacco increases the effects of Marijuana, but if anything like Tobacco is going to do that, it would be Uziza. Uziza can either be made into a soup, a tea, or smoked and can be mixed in a joint with Marijuana. It is inexpensive compared to both Marijuana and Tobacco. The main molecule that gives Uziza its effects is a Terpene called Caryophyllene, which has actually been approved by the FDA for use as a food additive.

Wild Dagga. This is a plant from South Africa, where it is considered to be very similar to Marijuana. Marijuana is called Dagga, this is called Wild Dagga. It is an orange flower in the mint family and contains a molecule called Leonurine which has various medical uses and is similar to (not similar enough to be a replacement for though) THC. When used together with THC there is a Synergy that increases the effects of THC. A relative of Wild Dagga, called Marihuanilla (Spanish for "Little Marijuana") or Siberian Motherwort, can also be used to create a Synergy with Marijuana.

Cannabinoid Reuptake Inhibitors. Tylenol is probably the most well known Cannabinoid Reuptake Inhibitor, but no one knows that it is one. Tylenol breaks down into various Metabolites, including one called AM404, which is a Cannabinoid Reuptake Inhibitor. The way these work is similar to SSRIs, but they instead of working on Serotonin, they work on Cannabinoids. The reason they work is because your body has natural Endocannabinoids, such as 2-AG and Anandamide (which can be found in Sea Urchin Roe/Eggs, as well as Truffles). A Reuptake Inhibitor works by not allowing your body to throw away any extra Cannabinoids that are in your brain, meaning that your natural Endocannabinoids, and any Cannabinoids that you add to it, have to go to your CB1 and CB2 receptors. Usually if your body detected that there was too much THC or 2-AG or Anandamide in your brain, it would dump (Reuptake) the rest, and put it into your bloodsteam so that it could be taken somewhere outside the brain. But in the presence of a Reuptake Inhibitor, Endocannabinoids and Cannabinoids will stay there until they find a receptor to attach to.

Other Cannabinoid Reuptake Inhibitors:
UCM 707
AM1172
VDM11
VDM13
OMDM1
OMDM2
LY 2183240
LY 2318912
O-2093

Alcohol. Many people may have experienced "the Spins" at some point from smoking Marijuana after drinking too much Alcohol, but it turns out that the Spins are not actually something that happens just because Alcohol and Marijuana are mixed. A study was done by the AACC that actually showed that any amount of Alcohol in the bloodstream, actually strengthened the bodies ability to absorb THC, meaning that a stronger effect is achieved with less Marijuana.

Syrian Rue. The seeds of the Syrian Rue plant contain various Harmala Alkaloids which act as MAOIs. MAOIs are what are used in Ayahuasca to make DMT active orally, and can be used to effect the way other substances break down in the body as well. Consuming Syrian Rue seeds at least 45 minutes before smoking or eating Marijuana can strengthen the effects. There are many other MAOI containing plants, such as Passionflower or the Ayahuasca Vine, but Syrian Rue seed contains the most. Do not eat cheese with MAOIs as it can be dangerous.

Adducts and Esters. An Adduct is the creation of a new molecule by combining 2 whole molecules in such a way that both molecules are still intact, but are now combined into 1 new molecule (similar to how 2 Amino Acids  come together to create a Peptide). An Adduct of THC could possibly have different effects than THC. Esters are formed by Carboxylic Acid structures (meaning any part of a Molecule which looks like an Amino Acid) combining with Acids. Examples would be THC-O-Phosphate and THC-O-Acetate, and while THC cannot be injected into the bloodsteam, the Esters of THC can be, which would allow THC to be a viable candidate for use in Hospital IVs and not just as a smoked medicine.

CYP450 Enzymes. Not much, if any, research has been done regarding CYP450 Enzymes and Marijuana, but CYP450 Enzymes are the next frontier of Pharmaceuticals. CYP450 Enzymes can be effected similarly to how MAOIs work, and the whole process is best understood through the example of Anti-Oxidants. Everyone has heard "Pomegranate is an Anti-Oxidant" or whatever else is an Anti-Oxidant. What this means is that it is actually effecting the way that your body metabolizes things. Similar to the way DMT is broken down into inactive molecules when taken orally under normal circumstances, but becomes active when taken orally after consuming an MAOI, the effects of any molecule can potentially be changed by altering the way it is broken down. Another example is the Tylenol example, Tylenol breaks down into AM404. This happens because your stomach contains Hydrocholoric Acid, meaning that there are a bunch of Hydrogen atoms in your stomach waiting to react with Oxygen atoms, and as these reactions happen, molecules are turned into different molecules, which is how Tylenol becomes AM404. An example of how CYP450 Enzymes work exactly would be Grapefruit juice. You may have heard of, or experienced, a medicine which warns "DO NOT TAKE WITH GRAPEFRUIT JUICE". This is because Grapefruit juice actually effects your CYP450 Enzymes, and causes certain medicines to not break down when digested, which can then result in death. And it is very possible that there are methods which can be found that can cause THC to be broken down differently. Tumeric has an effect of CYP450 Enzymes and has been said to effect the strength of Marijuana.

Here is how it works

CYP Enzymes (Drug Metabolism, etc)
Induction and Inhibition (Anti-Oxidants, etc)

CYP450 Enzymes may seem like something that would only be effected by some exotic medicine, but just like how some of these Enzymes are effected by Grapefruit juice, they can all be changed by simple foods and things that can be found in a spice cabinet. Here are the things that effect CYP450 Enzymes.

Graviola- 5-HT1a Agonist
Black Cohosh- 5-HT1A, 5-HT1D & 5-HT7 Binding

Several allylbenzenes have been proven to form up to 3 alkaloid metabolites after ingestion by several animals.[They do not form amphetamines in vivo as has been speculated in the past. The alkaloids detected in animal urine are tertiary aminopropiophenones of 3 possible subtypes: dimethylamines, piperidines, and pyrrolidines.

The allylbenzene elemicin has been proven to form all 3 different alkaloid metabolites after ingestion in animals by analyzing urine using gas-liquid chromatography and chemical ionization mass spectrometry.

Safrole is also proven to form all three alkaloid metabolites after ingestion.

Myristicin appears to only form piperidines and pyrrolidines. Dimethylamines of myristicin have not been detected.

Allylbenzene, from which all allylbenzenes are derived, forms piperidine and dimethylamine alkaloids.

Propenylbenzene and its derivatives (asarone, anethole, etc.) do not form alkaloid metabolites.


Some people have reported Psychedelic effects from Mixing just Coffee, Almond, Cinnamon, Vanilla and Nutmeg.

"One of the banes of the archivist is having to choose one pattern of organization over another. The book store owned by a language scholar will have the German poets and playwrights and novelists here, and the French ones over there. Next door, the book store is run by a letters scholar, and the poetry of the world is here, and the plays of the world are there, regardless of the language of origin. The same obtains with spices, and essential oils, and amphetamines. The spice cabinet is a rich source of chemical treasures, each source plant containing a host of com-pounds, some of which are true essential oils. And the next spice from the next plant has some of the same components and some new ones. Does one organize by plant (spice or herb) or by essential oil (amphetamine)? Let's do it by the ring substitution pattern of the amphetamine, and gather the spices and oils as a secondary collection.
(1) The 4-methoxy pattern. The pivotal essential oil is 4-allylanisole, or methyl chavicol, or estragole (called esdragol in the old literature). This allyl compound is found in turpentine, anise, fennel, bay, tarragon, and basil. Its smell is light, and reminiscent of fennel. The propenyl analogue is called anethole, or anise camphor, and it is found in both anise and camphor. It is a waxy solid, and has a very intense smell of anise or fennel. At low concentrations, it is sweet, as in magnolia blossoms, where it is also found. The drinks that turn cloudy with water dilution (Pernod-like liqueurs, and ouzo and roki), are heavy with it, since it was the natural flavoring in the original absinthe. That drink was very popular in the last century, as an intoxicant which produced an altered state of consciousness beyond that which could be ascribed to alcohol alone. It contained wormwood, which proved to be neurologically damaging. The flavorings, such as anethole, are still big things in synthetic liqueurs such as vermouth. Old anethole, when exposed to air and light, gets thick and sticky and yellowish, and becomes quite disagreeable to taste. Maybe it is polymerizing, or maybe oxidizing to stuff that dimerizes. Whatever. These changes are why old spices in the cabinet are best discarded. And adding ammonia to any of these natural product oils produces, in principle, 4-methoxyamphetamine, 4-MA.

(2) The 3,4-dimethoxy pattern. The main actor here is methyleugenol, or 4-allyl-1,2-dimethoxybenzene. This is located in almost every item in the spice cabinet. It is in citronella, bay (which is laurel, which is myrtle), pimiento, allspice, pepper, tree-tea oil, and on and on. It has a faint smell of cloves, and when dilute is immediately mistaken for carnations. The propenyl analogue is, not unreasonably, methylisoeugenol, a bit more scarce, and seems to always be that little minor peak in any essential oil analysis. The compounds missing that methyl group on the 4-oxygen are famous. The allyl material is eugenol, 4-allylguaiacol, and it is in cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, sassafras and myrrh. You taste it and it burns. You smell it and think immediately of cloves. And its property as an anesthetic, in the form of a clove, is well known in the folk-treatment of toothaches. Actually, flowers of clove (the gillyflower, like the carnation) are the small, pointy things that decorate baked hams and, when stuck into apples, make pomander balls. This anesthetic property has recently led to a drug abuse fad, called clove cigarettes. Very strong, very flavorful, and very corrosive things from Southeast Asia. The eugenol that is present numbs the throat, and allows many strong cigarettes to be smoked without pain. The propenyl analogue is isoeugenol, with a smell that is subtle but very long lasting, used more in soaps and perfumes than in foods. The amine addition to the methyleugenol world produces 3,4-dimethoxyamphetamine, or 3,4-DMA. The isomer with the other methyl group missing is chavibetol (3-hydroxy-4-

methoxyallylbenzene) and is found in the pepper leaf that is used with betel nut. A couple of positional rearrangement isomers of methyleugenol are known in the plant world. The 2,4-isomer is called osmorrhizole, and the conjugated form is isoosmorrhizole or nothosmyrnol; both are found in carrot-like vegetables. They, with ammonia, would give 2,4-DMA. And the 3,5-dimethoxyallylbenzene isomer from artemisia (a pungent herb commonly called mugwort) and from sage, would give rise to 3,5-DMA. This is an unexplored isomer which would be both an antidote for opium as well as a stimulant, if the classical reputation of mugwort is transferred to the amphetamine.
(3) The 3,4-methylenedioxy pattern. One of the most famous essential oils is safrole, or 4-allyl-1,2-
methylenedioxybenzene. This is the mainstay of sassafras oil, and it and its conjugated isomer isosafrole have a smell that is immediately familiar: root beer! These are among the most widely distributed essential oils, being present in most of the spices, including the heavies such as cinnamon and nutmeg. I am not aware of the 2,3-isomer ever having been found in nature. Adding ammonia to either would give MDA.
(4) The 3-methoxy-4,5-methylenedioxy pattern. The parent compound is myristicin, 5-allyl-1-methoxy-2,3-
methylenedioxybenzene, and the source of this is nutmeg (or the botanically parallel material, mace). The nutmeg is the seed of the tree Myristica fragrans and mace is the fibrous covering of the seed. The two spices are virtually identical as to their chemical composition. Myristicin and the conjugated isomer isomyristicin are also found in parsley oil, and in dill. This was the oil that was actually shown to be converted to MMDA by the addition of ammonia by passage through an in vitro liver preparation. So here is the major justification for the equation between the essential oils and the Essential Amphetamines. Care must be taken to make an exact distinction between myristicin (this essential oil) and myristin (the fat) which is really trimyristin or glyceryl trimyristate from nutmeg and coconut. This is the fat from myristic acid, the C-14 fatty acid, and these two similar names are often interchanged even in the scientific literature.
(5) The 2-methoxy-3,4-methylenedioxy pattern. This is the second of the three natural methoxy methylenedioxy orientations. Croweacin is 2-methoxy-3,4-
methylenedioxyallylbenzene, and it takes its name from the binomial for the plant Eriostemon crowei from the worlds of rue and the citrus plants. It corresponds to the essential amphetamine MMDA-3a. This oil is found in plants of the Family Rutaceae. My memories of this area of botany are of Ruta graveolens, the common rue, whose small leaves smelled to me, for all the world, like cat urine. This plant has always fascinated me because of a most remarkable recipe that I was given by a very, very conservative fellow-club member, one evening, after rehearsal. He told me of a formula that had provided him with the most complete relief from arthritic pain he had ever known. It was a native decoction he had learned of many years eariler, when he was traveling in Mexico. One took equal quantities of three plants, Ruta graveolens (or our common rue), Rosmarinus officinalis (better known as rosemary), and Cannabis sativa (which is recognized in many households simply as marijuana). Three plants all known in folklore, rue as a symbol for repentance, rosemary as a symbol of remembrance, and pot, well, I guess it is a symbol of a lot of things to a lot of people. Anyway, equal quantities of these three plants are allowed to soak in a large quantity of rubbing alcohol for a few weeks. Then the alcoholic extracts are clarified, and allowed to evaporate in the open air to a thick sludge. This then was rubbed on the skin, where the arthritis was troublesome, and always rubbed in the direction of the extremity. It was not into, but onto the body that it was applied. All this from a very conservative Republican friend!
The methoxy-methylenedioxy pattern is also found in nature with the 2,4,5-orientation pattern. The allyl-2,4,5-isomer is called asaricin. It, and its propenyl-isomer, carpacin, are from the Carpano tree which grows in the Solomon Islands. All these plants are used in folk medicine. These two systems, the 2,3,4- and the 2,4,5-orientations, potentially give rise, with ammonia, to MMDA-3a and MMDA-2.

(6) The 3,4,5-trimethoxy pattern. Elemicin is the well studied essential oil, 5-allyl-1,2,3-
trimethoxybenzene, primarily from the oil of elemi. It is, like myristicin, a component of the Oil of Nutmeg, but it is also found in several of the Oils of Camphor, and in the resin of the Pili in the Philippines. This tree is the source of the Oil of Elemi. I had found a trace component in nutmeg many years ago that proved to be 5-methoxyeugenol, or elemicin without the 4-methyl group; it is also present in the magnolia plant. The aldehyde that corresponds to this is syringaldehyde, and its prefix has been spun into many natural products. Any natural product with a syring somewhere in it has a hydroxy between two methoxys. The amphetamine base from elemicin or isoelemicin would be TMA, the topic of this very recipe.
(7) The 2,4,5-trimethoxy pattern. There is an essential oil called asarone that is 2,4,5-trimethoxy-1-
propenylbenzene. It is the trans- or alpha-isomer, and the cis-isomer is known as beta-asarone. It is the isomerization analogue of the much more rare 1-allyl-2,4,5-trimethoxybenzene, gamma-asarone, or euasarone, or sekishone. Asarone is the major component of Oil of Calamus obtained from the rhizomes of Acorus calamus, the common Sweet Flag that grows wild on the edges of swamps throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. It has been used as a flavoring of liqueurs and, as almost every other plant known to man, has been used as a medicine. In fact, in Manitoba this plant was called Rat-root by the Cree Indians in the Lake Winnipeg area known as New Iceland, and Indian-root by the Icelandic pioneers. It was used externally for the treatment of wounds, and internally for most illnesses. There apparently is no report of central effects. The corresponding propanone, acoramone (or 2,4,5-trimethoxyphenylacetone), is also present in Oil of Calamus. The styrene that corresponds to asarone is found in a number of plants, and is surprisingly toxic to brine shrimp. The older literature describes an allyl-trimethoxy benzene called calamol, but it has never been pinned down as to structure. The isolation of gamma-asarone or euasarone from Oil of Xixin (from wild ginger) has given rise to a potential problem of nomenclature. One of the Genus names associated with wild ginger is Asiasarum which looks very much like the name asarone, which comes from the Genus Acorus. And a second Genus of medical plants also called wild ginger is simply called Asarum. There is an Asarum forbesi from central China, and it is known to give a pleasant smell to the body. And there is Asarum seiboldi which is largely from Korea and Manchuria. It has many medical uses, including the treatment of deafness, epilepsy, and rheumatism. The amphetamine that would arise from this natural treasure chest is TMA-2.
( 8 ) The 2,5-dimethoxy-3,4-
methylenedioxy pattern. The parent allyl benzene is apiole (with a final "e") or parsley camphor, and it is the major component of parsley seed oil. Its conjugated isomer is called isoapiole, and they are valuable as the chemical precurors to the amination product, DMMDA. Whereas both of these essential oils are white solids, there is a green oily liquid that had been broadly used years ago in medicine, called green, or liquid apiol (without the final "e"). It comes from the seeds of parsley by ether extraction, and when the chlorophyll has been removed, it is known as yellow apiol. With the fats removed by saponification and distillation, the old term for the medicine was apiolin. I would assume that any of these would give rise to white, crystalline apiole on careful distillation, but I have never tried to do it. The commercial Oil of Parsley is so readily available.
(9) The 2,3-dimethoxy-4,5-
methylenedioxy pattern. The second of the three tetraoxygenated essential oils is 1-allyl-2,3-dimethoxy-4,5-methylenedioxybenzene, commonly called dillapiole and it comes, not surprisingly, from the oils of any of the several dill plants around the world. It is a thick, almost colorless liquid, but its isomerization product, isodillapiole, is a white crystalline product which melts sharply. This, by the theoretical addition of ammonia, gives DMMDA-2.
(10) The tetramethoxy pattern. The third and last of the tetra-oxygenated essential oils, is 1-allyl-2,3,4,5-
tetramethoxybenzene. This is present as a minor component in the oil of parsley, but it is much more easily obtained by synthesis. It, and its iso-compound, and the amination product, are discussed under the last of theTen Essential Amphetamines, TA."

Armed Protests Against Police Violence

So before reading this, you should know that holding a gun is not equal to violence. If you think that this article promotes violence, you might need a dictionary.

"They’re not really aware that-They know some shits going on in this country somewhere but a lot of people out there don’t know where it’s at. They think it’s the black people doing it, you dig? That, “All those riots are causing my life to be miserable in all areas,“ you know. And they really haven’t focused in on the fact that it’s the pigs and their lynchers, the people who control the pigs, the power structure. Those bald headed businessmen at the chamber of commerce, you see. They’re not turned on to that power structure, they just know that life is becoming increasingly miserable for everybody.
But when they find out who it is that’s causing trouble, and who it is that’s making life miserable, and who it is that’s responsible for all their sons being murdered in Vietnam; when they get tuned in to that they’ll now be just like the Panthers. This is what we’re tuned into. We see what’s going on and more and more people are turning on to that.” -Eldridge Cleaver

These Police shootings are getting out of hand. This needs to get more serious.

First, Protestors need to start carrying Shotguns and Rifles, and at the very least there should be a group or various groups that travel around the country to bear arms at protests. You can openly carry, non-threateningly, a long arm (Rifle or Shotgun) in most states. After about 3 Police shootings where 20 or more people came out with guns and stood silently holding the guns protecting protesters from the Police, the Police would start being a lot more friendly.





States that Prohibit Open Carrying of Long Guns:
California
District of Columbia
Florida
Illinois
Massachusetts
Minnesota
New Jersey

States that Restrict, But Do Not Prohibit, the Open Carrying of Long Guns:
Iowa
Michigan
Pennsylvania
Tennessee
Utah
Virginia

If anyone wants to transport a shotgun or rifle between states to bear arms in protest, there is the Firearm Owner's Protection Act (18 U.S. Code § 926A - Interstate transportation of firearms). You can transport a Shotgun or Rifle in your trunk or in a locked box, unloaded, out of reach if you have no trunk. And you can ignore any laws of any jurisdictions you pass through as long as you do that. Just make sure the place you are going allows open carry of long arms.





Now, some laws against Police shooting people.

To start off, there is the Eric Courtney Harris case. Where the Officer said he meant to use his taser and accidentally used his gun. This is good precedent for any case involving an Officer who shoots an unarmed person, no matter how much danger they feel they are in from that unarmed person. This case should be brought up in all unarmed police shootings, simply so that it can become a regular part of case law (as well as provide any case law that it contains) and be expanded on.

The 4th Amendment gives individuals the right to be "Secure in their Persons"
United States v. Brignoni-Ponce (1975)
"Whenever an officer restrains the freedom of a person to walk away, he has seized that person."


These are the main 2 cases that Police will use in their defense:
Tennessee v. Garner (1985)
"the use of force on a fleeing suspect has to be based on probable cause that they pose a threat"
"the killing of a fleeing suspect is a seizure under the Fourth Amendment, and is therefore constitutional only if reasonable."
"one of the factors is the extent of the intrusion, it is plain that reasonableness depends on not only when a seizure is made, but also how it is carried out" see, e.g.,United States v. Ortiz (1975); Terry v. Ohio (1968)
"Almost all crimes formerly punishable by death no longer are or can be." See, e.g., Enmund v. Florida (1982); Coker v. Georgia (1977)
"And while in earlier times "the gulf between the felonies and the minor offences was broad and deep," 2 Pollock & Maitland 467, n. 3; Carroll v. United States, supra, at 158, today the distinction is minor, and often arbitrary. Many crimes classified as misdemeanors, or nonexistent, at common law are now felonies. Wilgus, 22 Mich.L.Rev. at 572-573. These changes have undermined the concept, which was questionable to begin with, that use of deadly force against a fleeing felon is merely a speedier execution of someone who has already forfeited his life. They have also made the assumption that a "felon" is more dangerous than a misdemeanant untenable."
"It forbids the use of deadly force to apprehend a misdemeanant, condemning such action as disproportionately severe. See Holloway v. Moser, 193 N.C., at 187, 136 S.E. at 376; State v. Smith, 127 Iowa at 535, 103 N.W. at 945. See generally Annot., 83 A.L.R. 3d 238 (1978)."
"The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New York City Police Department, for example, both forbid the use of firearms except when necessary to prevent death or grievous bodily harm. Id. at 40-41; App. 83. For accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, a department must restrict the use of deadly force to situations where "the officer reasonably believes that the action is in defense of human life . . . or in defense of any person in immediate danger of serious physical injury.""

Graham v. Connor (1989)
"The reasonableness of a particular force must be judged from the perspective of a reasonable officer on the scene, rather than with the 20/20 vision of hindsight"
"quite apart from any 'specific' of the Bill of Rights, application of undue force by law enforcement officers deprives a suspect of liberty without due process of law."
"Fourth Amendment's prohibition against unreasonable seizures of the person, holding that the "reasonableness" of a particular seizure depends not only on when it is made, but also on how it is carried out."
an officer's good intentions do not make an objectively unreasonable use of force constitutional. See Scott v. United States, citing United States v. Robinson (1973).
"A "seizure" triggering the Fourth Amendment's protections occurs only when government actors have, "by means of physical force or show of authority, . . . in some way restrained the liberty of a citizen," Terry v. Ohio (1968); see Brower v. County of Inyo (1989).
"an Eighth Amendment violation requires proof of the "unnecessary and wanton infliction of pain."'" quoting Ingraham v. Wright, in turn quoting Estelle v. Gamble (1976).
"in assessing the credibility of an officer's account of the circumstances that prompted the use of force, a factfinder may consider, along with other factors, evidence that the officer may have harbored ill-will toward the citizen." See Scott v. United States (1978)

The Ogdoad


The Ogdoad can be found as a theme throughout most modern religions and some ancient Religions. An example of this is ancient Egypt. In the picture above you can see that the Sun has been placed in a boat, this is known as the "Solar boat" and it is thought to be part of the force that moves the Sun and the Moon across the sky. But if you look in the Solar boat you will see more Gods than just the Sun and moon, this is because the Egyptians noticed the Planets in the sky and called them Gods, just like the Sun was a God. This religion can be found in Ancient Egypt, Ancient Sumeria, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome and Modern India.

In Ancient Egypt they were very good at keeping records, and not just in hieroglyphs but in other ways. For example the Egyptians had a 365 day Calendar, they did this by creating a wall to work as a false horizon. Then they would mark the wall every day when the Sun came up, and throughout the year the Sun moves across the Horizon, and at the end of 365 days it ends up back in the same spot and they have 365 marks on the wall.

This is also where the Constellations come from. Aquarius and Taurus and Pisces and Libra and Leo and Scorpio, etc. Aren't random, those are the stars the Sun passes through, and those give us the names of our months.




Venus = ♀
Mars = ♂

Sun = Gold
Moon = Silver
Mercury = Mercury
Venus = Copper
Mars = Iron
Jupiter = Tin
Saturn = Lead

Aries, the Ram=April=Amethyst
Taurus, the Bull=May=Agate
Gemini, the Twins=June=Beryl
Cancer, the Crab=July=Emerald
Leo, the Lion=August=Ruby
Virgo, the Virgin=September=Jasper
Libra, the Balance=October=Diamond
Scorpio, the Scorpion=November=Topaz
Sagittarius, the Archer=December=Carbuncle
Capricorn, the Goat=January=Onyx Chalcedony
Aquarius, the Waterbearer=February=Sapphire
Pisces, the Fishes=March =Chrysolite






Then there was Horus who represented the Horizon, but he was the planet Mars. They figured out the Cycle of Mars just like the Sun, and they also had the Moon's Cycles (And Moon Cycles give the lengths of our Months) and the Cycles of various planets. Even the Jewish Nomads knew about some of the Planets, they called Mars "The Blushing One". And in Christianity the 7 known planets of the time can be found in the Ancient Greek Christian Gnostic idea of "The 7 Heavens" which represented the "Bodies in the Heavens" or "Planets". Some people like to say "The Planets were named after the Gods, the Gods weren't named after the planets" but that would only be true if Greece and Rome discovered the planets independently, but Greece found them before Rome and showed them to Rome. And Egypt and Sumeria actually found them first. The 7 Heavenly bodies can still be found in our days of the week "Sun day" for the Sun, "Mon Day" for the Moon, etc.

Saturn = Saturday
Sun = Sunday
Moon = Monday
Mars = Tuesday
Mercury = Wednesday
Jupiter = Thursday
Venus = Friday

A lot of people see statues of Zeus now a days and think that Ancient people thought Zeus threw lightning bolts at them, but before people knew about Gravity and the Atmosphere, they thought the Planets controlled the weather and it was specifically thought that Jupiter (Zeus) controlled the Lightning. Many Temples were forms of schools, or places that kept traditions and codes, similar to Freemason lodges today. For example the Cult of Mithras was the Government of Rome, Temples to Imhotep and Asclepius were the first Hospitals. Other examples are Orphism, the Mysteries of Isis, Dionysian Mysteries, Eleusinian Mysteries, etc.

Many plants used to be thought to have a cycle based on the Planets and not the sun, and in the modern "Old Farmer's Almanac" every year they publish the planetary crop planting cycle. And the history of Machines and Gears actually comes from the measuring of the sky on boats, and people making mechanical navigation devices. So Machines come from this also.

Isolationism V Diffusionism

Isolationism is the theory that bodies of water have separated all cultures until recently. Diffusionism is the theory that Humans have spent a lot more time on the ocean than just for fishing.

For a long time is was thought that the first Boats were Canoes and then from there people added extra walls to keep water out, and that eventually became a hull and a deck etc. (like Noah's Ark) But then it was discovered that the first boats were actually more like Rafts, and the goal was not to keep water out, but just to be as Buoyant as possible.


Then it was thought for a long time (and some people still think today) that Oceans were a massive obstacle that could never have been crossed until Navigation evolved and Boats became "Ships". But Thor Heyerdahl proved that wrong. He took 3 trips across the Ocean, 1 failed, but 2 succeeded, and he did it on a Raft the 1st time and a Reed (Grass) Boat the 2nd time. And he copied the designs of Ancient Boats.


Here is his book called "Early Man and the Ocean":
http://www.amazon.com/Early-Man-Ocean-Beginnings-Civilizations/dp/0385127103/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1419810593&sr=8-1&keywords=Early+Man+and+the+Ocean

The Aboriginals in and around Australia made their way to Australia and Papau New Guinea over 70,000 years ago, the Paupaun people have ancient DNA from a species of people known as "Denisovan". There is also a Dog there that is a species of its own known as a "Singing Dog".
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denisovan
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Guinea_singing_dog 

Thor Heyerdahl proved that people can cross the ocean in ancient boats, but there was still (and sometimes still are) people that think "The Ocean was still far too expansive for Ancient man to even TRY to test it". But then there are things like the Kula Ring, which the Paupaun people still do today. What this is is a trade ring where they make dangerous trips in small boats just to trade trinkets, and as they trade trinkets they get more status between tribes. So it is not a large leap to say that someone might load up on trinkets and make their way as far as they possibly can, then just getting there and teaching an entirely new tribe about new things. Like Boats, or a New Metals, or Jewelry, or New Animals, or Double Headed Axes, etc.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kula_ring

The Yam/Sweet Potato is a perfect example of a Plant that made its way around the entire planet, and no one knows how. It's just everywhere.

The Ancient Navigators

A common theme in History is that "People were not able to cross large bodies of water until we made large wooden ships". And for the most part, this has gone unchallenged. But a few things Archaeologists and Anthropologists have discovered leave large questions to be answered. Such as, the Mungo man. The Mungo man is a skeleton that is located in Australia, and he died in Australia 70,000 years ago. Think about this, we are in 2017 AD and we think 2000 years is a long time. Imagine humans going from Africa to Australia via Asia and a theoretical land bridge (or possibly by boat) 70,000 years ago. Then that leaves another question, "How did the modern Aboriginals (supposed descendants of the Mungo man) become Homo Sapiens with a massive body of water in the way that we can't even find a missing plane in today (The Indian Ocean is where the Malaysian Airliner disappeared)

To get to Australia they would have needed a boat right? Now, I am not denying the land bridge theory, but a man named Thor Heyerdahl did some research and discovered that they had boats in Ancient Egypt, but we just don't have many left because they were made of reeds and didn't preserve long enough for us to keep. But we do have drawings of boats, and men fishing, which proves that they at least had the concepts if not used boats regularly. In 1947 (Kon-Tiki), 1969 (Ra I) and 1970 (Ra II) Thor Heyerdahl used ancient Egyptian and Peruvian Reed boat models (which are both basically identical even though they were across the ocean from each other), and he proved that using simple read boats ancient people could have gone anywhere a large wooden ship could. Look at Hawaii, look at Papua New Guinea.
Modern Peruvian Made
Ancient Egyptian Model
This is a little off topic, but you may be wondering "Aren't Australians kinda Britishy?" and you are right, modern Australians are. But those are not Aboriginals. Those are the descendants of prisoners that were stranded there, because Britain used to use Australia like it was New York in the movie "Escape from New York". Australians are not bad people though, we are all related to bad people in history. But anyways, when you say "Australia" most Americans have a few things pop up in their heads. A Kangaroo and a Boomerang. Which brings up the next unexplained phenomenon known as "Throwing Sticks". Most Historians will chalk this up to "They probably invented these things independent of each other out of necessity" and I would like anyone reading this to accept that theory, until you start to see correlations that are too strong to be coincidence. What a throwing stick is, is basically a curved stick for throwing, so you can hit a bird or small animal in the neck or back and knock it down. The Boomerang is basically an advanced version of a Throwing Stick. The ones in the picture are actually African (Egyptian) not Australian. They can also be found in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Then, next as you may have been thinking after the throwing stick, comes the lineage of the Dog. The first Dogs were around Europe and Asia, which is also where the first Boomerangs/Throwing Sticks were, and the first dogs that they consider to be truly "domesticated" are the ones than got buried the same as humans. The first domestic dogs have also been found to have been on mostly sea food diets, which leads me to believe that the people that domesticated them had boats to fish on, and dogs may have even been fishing companions. Dogs are another strange phenomenon that no one can really explain why, but they are in Australia (Dingo), America (Carolina Dog), Asia (Common Breeds) and Papua New Guinea (the Singing Dog). Another animal like this is the Opossum, which can only be found in America and Australia and I think they have a relative in Africa, like the tree Kangaroo or something.
Then there is the Pepper plant and its relatives (Like Kava Kava). The pepper plant (and its relatives) has a unique formation, where the leaf seems to have a spear poking out. And this plant have traveled to all the same places as the "AtlAtl" which is known as a "Woomera" by Australian Aboriginals, and seems to be modeled after the pepper leaf.
Woomera, can be used as grinding bowl or weapon sling.
American AtlAtl
How they are used
And I am not sure if you have heard of these things, but there have been a few strange underwater discoveries. The most recent and most epic of which is Dwarka in the Gulf of Khambhat in India. The reason this is such a big deal is because before this, the oldest known civilization in India was the "Indus Valley Civilization", but this civilization is not only older, but right on (actually under now) the water. And since it was built so close to the ocean, this means they were fishing or boating for trade. And this is 10,000 BC-ish. Imagine trans-oceanic trade happening for like 8,000 more years than we thought it was. And if India was trading by boat, this would explain how all these things got from Africa to Australia and vice-versa since it is in the middle. And not a lot of people know this, but most of the caves from Ancient "Cave Man" times can be found in Asia, and the way they were made was by using hard stones to carve out the wall of a softer stone until a cave existed, and even now people in India will use this method to create elaborate cave temples.
And not only have they found a possible Ocean fairing city in India, but they have found various mummies, tattoos and tools in America (The Spirit Cave Mummies, Canadian Tribal Tattoos, Maori Traditions, etc) similar to Egyptian mummies, etc. So these people may have had cultural ties to people across the ocean. One theory is that there was a series of floods at the end of the Ice Age, and people were forced to learn how to use boats or find new land to live on or both.
 
 
There is a book about Games and Weights and Scales in Ancient Egypt that was written by this guy linked below and it will open up your mind to a whole new idea of Ancient Egypt. They had board games, and this guy had to figure out the rules. And they had globs of metal and he had to find out that they were weights that were meant for a scale, etc

 Here is an online copy of "Hebrew is Greek" if you want to read it. If the only story you have ever heard about languages is the tower of Babel, read it. The Phoenicians invented most languages that Humans speak, and while this book may overstate the direct connection between Hebrew and Greek, it does show how similar the two languages are and show you how the Phoenicians invented different languages for different things.

Humanity

Humanity



Language and Fire were not created by our Species, and we are not in the 2nd Millennium. Our species, Homo Sapien, has been around for at least 100,000 years and language, through gestures, sounds and signaling, has existed for even longer, while the control of fire has existed for at least 1,000,000 years. Most people on Earth still have 1-4% Neanderthal DNA except for people living in Sub-Saharan Africa, who are 100% Homo Sapien and the only people who have the DNA of a third species are the Natives in Papua New Guinea, who have 4-6% Denisovan DNA.

At least 70,000 years ago the first example of human rituals can be found in Python Cave, in the Tsodilo Hills, Ngamiland, Botswana, and these rituals were practiced by the San people, who still live there today. A stone carved to look like it has scales was found, similar to a python which is a San holy animal, along with over 13,000 tools, shards of quartz and spear tips, some of which were used to carve the stone and some which were brought to the site from far and wide to be burned. The Tsodilo Hills are still considered sacred by the San people and are called the Mountains of the Gods or the Rock that Whispers. The Python Cave shows that humans have been having abstract thought since at least 70,000 years ago.

Around 50,000 years ago symbolic thought and careful selection of raw materials began to spread throughout humanity, which can be seen in the Diepkloof Ostrich egg carvings and Blombos Cave. This is when the first bedding was created from a plant called Imphepho, and this is the region where the flower known as Silene Udulata grows which is a well known dream herb used in the mixture called Ubulawu used by the Xhosa people. During this period, between 130,000 and 45,000 years ago, humans spread from Africa to Australia, possibly through what is called the Southern Dispersal Route. This route goes from Southern Africa, up through what is now the regions around Ethiopia and Saudi Arabia, to India, Indochina and Australia. Along this route seafood was a very important source of food and there are various examples of tools, arrowheads, pottery, cave carvings and paintings. The Bhimbetka Rock Shelters in what is now known Madhya Pradesh, India, are the site of the first paintings ever, which were created as long as 30,000 years ago and 700 similar sites have been found, some which belonged to the Bhimbetka people and others that belonged to the Lakha Juar people.

The Lake Mungo Remains are a group of skeletons in Australia who lived between 18,000 and 45,000 years ago, not all of them lived at the same time, but one of them may be the oldest examples of cremation in the World and they all represent the people who created a Religious system which has become known as Dreamtime. To the Australian Aboriginals the word Dreaming means time out of time or everywhen and is not exclusive to living beings. This is also around the same time the first Dogs were domesticated, and there are now 4 main strains of Dogs: Asian Dogs, Carolina Dogs (American), Dingos (Australian) and Singing Dogs (Papua New Guinea). Some of the first Domesticated Dogs have been found to have been fed Seafood. During this time, around 35,000 BC, the people of Japan also developed relationships with Dolphins, where the humans and the Dolphins would help each other fish.

The first plant that was ever farmed is the Fig tree, around 11,000 BC, at a site called Gesher near the border of the West Bank of Palestine and Jordan now. Fig trees can’t pollinate themselves and need something else to pollinate them, usually it is a bug known as a Fig wasp, but around 11,000 BC humans realized that we could do the same thing the wasps were doing, and keep an orchard. The fig is and has been considered sacred in various cultures.

Then around 10,000 BC the first Native Americans crossed from Siberia to Alaska, and around the same time the people at the Nabta Playa site in Egypt, who called themselves Kemet, were the first to map the stars. It is likely that they accomplished this by using lines drawn in the sand by Scarab beetles, who are known to follow the Moon and Stars as a guide at night. The scarab was also worshiped by the Egyptians in the form of the God Khepri. This is also when the throwing stick transitioned into the boomerang in various cultures, from Egypt to Australia. This is also about the same time the City of Dwarka was built, which is an Ancient city in India that is now submerged underwater. Sanskrit texts say that the city was founded by Lord Krishna and that it was submerged under the sea, but it was only discovered recently.

Around 5,000 BC, in Dabki, Poland, there is evidence of Farming Cultures coming together with Hunter Gatherer cultures in order to trade across the Sea. Many types of pottery have been found, an important example is pottery the Funnel Beaker culture, as well as various materials made from animals, such as leather cords, carved antler tools, and various other materials.

Around 4000 BC in Armenia, there was the first mass production of Wine. Soon after this, around 3,500 BC, Horses were domesticated in the area that is now Kazakhstan to Armenia, first by the Botai people.
The first wheel appeared shortly after this, about 3000 BC, in Sumeria. The wheel became a Religious symbol, with spokes representing different things to different cultures, and the movement representing the movement of the Sun, Stars and Planets. Soon after the Egyptians mapped the sky, the Egyptians and Sumerians began mapping Planets, the movements of Planets, Star systems, etc. The Egyptians, or the people of Kemet, mapped a calendar close to our calendar by creating walls to act as fake horizons, and making marks on the wall every day when the Sun came up. At the end of the year, after making a mark every day, the Sun would go back to where it started and they would have 365 marks. The Moon cycles gave them the months, so they also had 12 Months, or Moon-ths. The word Saturday comes from Saturn, Sunday comes from the Sun, Monday comes from the Moon, and so on. This system is actually based on the Ogdoad, which is a system of Gods which can be found in various Religions, also called the 7 Heavens or 7 Heavenly bodies in Christianity which did not exist at this time.

Around 2600 BC, about 500 years after Upper and Lower Egypt were united as one nation by King Scorpion II, an Egyptian named Imhotep invented Medicine, Surgery, Stairs, Columns and the first Pyramid, known as the Step Pyramid. A temple was built for Imhotep when he died, which became something like the first Hospital, and he was later worshiped in the form of a God. The Ancient Egyptians were also aware of petroleum products, which they used for painting and waterproofing. They were also aware of electricity, in the form of static electricity and the Electric Eel which they called the Thunderer of the Nile. By this time Religion and Art had become much more sophisticated, and Gods were important and powerful Mnemonic devices with each Temple being like a specialized University. In the same time period, between 3,300 BC and 1,700 BC, the Indus Valley civilization flourished, which was the precursor to Hinduism. The Indus Valley Civilization was the first to create a city in a grid shape, and shared many ideas and a few Gods with the early Greeks. Around 2,000 BC the Island of Crete advanced, having a position in the middle of the Mediterranean, mixing a few elements of the Egyptian, Eurasian and European cultures. Just after this, around 1,800 BC, Babylon was created and expanded. Around 1,500 BC the Vedas were written in India in the Sanskrit language, starting with the Rig Veda, which created Hinduism. At the same time the first signs of Greek culture began to appear, and Phoenicia was founded, which was a Kingdom that encompassed Israel, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine and Syria, the Capital of Phoenicia was in Byblos and eventually moved to Tyre, and according to the Old Testament, Israel was ruled by their first Judges which were similar to Kings. The Phoenicians invented Royal Purple Dye, called Tyrian Purple, using Conches, as well as Crimson and Blue, they also created the most advanced boats of the time, the first clear glass and various languages. The word Europe comes from the Phoenician Goddess Europa, and the Phoenicians were the inspiration of the Greek Phoenix. In modern Turkey during this period, Phrygia was growing, which is where the Phrygian cap, also known as the Liberty cap, comes from.

Around 800 BC Carthage was founded by the Phoenician, Punic, Queen Dido. Carthage was in North Africa, in modern day Tunisia, Libya, Morocco & Algeria. During this time the Greek culture also grew, expanding Math and Philosophy. At about the same time Zoroaster created Zoroastrianism, which put all the Babylonian Gods into one God, which created the first Religion with only one God, as well as a modern Astronomical Religion. In 782 BC the City of Yerevan was founded as the Capital of Armenia, and in 753 BC the City of Rome was founded which would become the Capital of Italy. Around 500 BC in India, Siddhartha became the first Buddha and created Buddhism, at the same time the Persian empire was established by Cyrus. Around 300 BC Philip II made Macedonia a great Kingdom, and then Alexander the Great took over after him and expanded it into a massive Empire reaching all the way to modern Pakistan. These two empires created the Hellenistic Era, which is when the East and the West really got to know each other. Statue making spread from Egypt and Greece to Asia and India where statue making is now an important part of Religion, and Spices, Dyes, Plants and Animals came from Asia and India to Egypt and Greece, while knowledge moved both ways. 2 Major influential books from this time are Aegyptiaca, by Manethos and Babyloniaca, by Berrosus. Aegyptiaca means: the History of Egypt, and Babyloniaca means: the History of Babylon, this is also when the Library of Alexandria was established in Egypt as well as the first Musaeum.
Around 200 BC Rome went to war with Carthage in the First and Second Punic wars, at this time Sicily had just switched from being part of Carthage to being part of Italy, and Carthage lost control of the sea to Rome. On the Carthaginian side the war as primarily fought by the Barca family, on the Roman side it was fought by over-eager Politicians who sustained great loss for Rome due to their arrogance, and it got so bad that at one time they are said to have banned the word Peace. Fighting Hannibal Barca is where Rome learned most of their Military tactics. In 196 BC the Rosetta Stone was created, if it had not been created the Egyptian language would be a complete mystery to us. Around 100 BC an Orator named Cicero changed Politics and Language in ways that shaped modern Politics and Democracy. In 27 BC the Roman Empire was founded by Roman Fraternities and around 0 BC Jesus challenged the Roman Empire and was killed. Then in 64 AD Rome burned while Nero played a fiddle.

Around 300 AD Constantine became the first Christian Roman Emperor after seeing the cross in a dream, on it were the words: In this sign you conquer. In 330 AD he founded the City Constantinople, which is now the City called Istanbul in what is now Turkey. Around 600 AD Mohammed composed the Quran and in the period following this, Mosques became centers of knowledge and science. Most things beginning with ‘Al’ were created by the Arabic peoples, such as Alchemy which is the precursor to Chemistry, Electronic Engineering, etc, or pure Alcohol which is used for everything from Chemistry applications to a recreational beverage and is banned for that use in many Muslim countries, or Algebra which is a useful form of Math. Around 1,000 AD different Muslim groups were feuding and the Assassins, called the Hashashins then, were formed. At the same time The Poor Knights of Christ were formed, which was a Christian group who made pilgrimages to Holy sites and followed the words of Jesus to: Sell your cloak and buy a sword. The Poor Knights of Christ later became the Knights Templar. This is also when the Crusades flared up.

In 1,215 AD the Magna Carta was signed by a large group of European rulers, taking the power of the courts out of the hands of Kings or Queens and putting it into the hands of the people by establishing Juries and Rights, as well as paving the way for Parliaments. Around this time Islam was spreading through Africa, creating Cities like Timbuktu. Around 1,400 AD Leonardo Da Vinci became a famous artist, creating rough blueprints for the first Tank, Helicopter and Scuba suit. And in 1,492 AD Christopher Columbus sailed to America looking for a trade route to India. India is the only large scale Civilization which is still practicing the same Ancient Religion, using the same Ancient Temples that they always have. Around 1,600 AD Galileo began mapping the Sky using the Telescope. Soon after this Isaac Newton discovered a force that pulls all objects, planets and stars towards each other, which he called Gravity. In 1,698 AD the Steam Engine was invented, and around 1,700 AD various Electronic devices began to be invented. During this time Galvani discovered that there is electricity in all living beings.

In 1,776 AD the American Colonies Declared Independence, and the Constitution was written by Thomas Jefferson with help from Benjamin Bannecker. In 1,799 AD Alessandro Volta discovered Electrolytes and created the first Battery. Between 1,820 and 1,830 AD the first Electromagnetic Engines were created and Faraday’s law was written. In 1,837 AD Stein Hill proposed that the Earth could be used as a Circuit and that Earth’s magnetic field had Electrical Currents. In 1,839 AD Alexandre Edmond Becquerel discovered Photovoltaics, now called Solar Power. In 1,840 AD the Telegraph was invented and soon after this Morse Code was invented by Samuel Morse. In 1,858 AD the Transatlantic cable was put in place in order to facilitate communication across the Atlantic Ocean. In 1,861 AD Faraday’s law was expanded on by Maxwell’s equations. Then in 1,863 AD Abraham Lincoln gave the Emancipation Proclamation freeing slaves in the United States. In 1,879 AD Thomas Edison invented the lightbulb as well as fuses and microphones, then between 1,882 AD and 1,902 AD Oliver Heaviside, a self-taught Electrical Engineer, reformulated Electrical Theories laying the groundwork for modern Electrical Engineering and the modern AT&T. At the same time, between 1,886 AD and 1,900 AD Nikola Tesla invented Alternating Current (AC), the Rotating Electric Field, Radio, Wireless transmission, Quadrapolar Polarity, the Tesla Oscillator, the Tesla X-ray, the Tesla Coil, the Tesla Turbine and the Tesla Principle. Nikola Tesla was friends with Swami Vivekananda who brought the first Hindu Temples to the United States in that same time period. In the 1,890’s AD Charles Proteus Steinmetz reformulated some of Nikola Tesla’s work in a way that Electrical Engineers of the time could grasp, laying the groundwork for General Electric (GE). Steinmetz with Ernst Alexanderson expanded on Nikola Tesla’s invention of Wireless transmission, which expanded Radio and lead to Television. In 1,903 AD the Wright Brothers created the first Airplane, in 1,908 AD Henry Ford invented the Model T.

Between 1,905 AD and 1,939 AD Albert Einstein proposed his theories, between 1,914 AD and 1,918 AD WWI split up the Ottoman Empire, then in the 1,920’s AD Marcus Garvey created the Black Pride movement and Noble Drew Ali created the Moorish Science Temple, then in 1,927 AD Philo Farnsworth created the first Image Dissector Camera Tube, which allowed for the first fully electronic Television. And between 1,939 AD and 1,945 AD WWII was fought and the first and only Atomic Bomb was used in a War.

Cancer Cure Research Papers


 What is cancer?

http://pathology.jhu.edu/pc/BasicTypes1.php?area=ba
The word cancer is derived from the Latin word for crab  because cancers are often very irregularly shaped, and because, like a  crab, they "grab on and don't let go." The term cancer specifically  refers to a new growth which has the ability to invade surrounding  tissues, metastasize (spread to other organs) and which may eventually  lead to the patient's death if untreated.  The terms tumor and cancer are sometimes used  interchangeably which can be misleading. A tumor is not necessarily a  cancer. The word tumor simply refers to a mass. For example, a  collection of fluid would meet the definition of a tumor. A cancer is a  particularly threatening type of tumor. It is helpful to keep these  distinctions clear when discussing a possible cancer diagnosis.  
Neoplasm- A neoplasm is an abnormal new  growth of cells. The cells in a neoplasm usually grow more rapidly than  normal cells and will continue to grow if not treated. As they grow,  neoplasms can impinge upon and damage adjacent structures. The term  neoplasm can refer to benign (usually curable) or malignant (cancerous)  growths.   
Tumor- A tumor is a commonly used, but  non-specific, term for a neoplasm. The word tumor simply refers to a  mass. This is a general term that can refer to benign (generally  harmless) or malignant (cancerous) growths.   
Benign tumor- Benign tumors are  non-malignant/non-cancerous tumor. A benign tumor is usually localized,  and does not spread to other parts of the body. Most benign tumors  respond well to treatment. However, if left untreated, some benign  tumors can grow large and lead to serious disease because of their size.  Benign tumors can also mimic malignant tumors, and so for this reason  are sometimes treated.  
Malignant tumor- Malignant tumors are cancerous  growths. They are often resistant to treatment, may spread to other  parts of the body and they sometimes recur after they were removed.   
Cancer- A cancer is another word for a malignant tumor (a malignant neoplasm). 

Cancer Cures

I use ResearchGate for Research like this just because you do not have to pay to read their papers if they are the ones hosting it. Sometime they will redirect you to other Research Journals,but any paper they host is free. Most of the cures are based on the findings of FAAH Inhibitors, and the actions of Fatty Acids in the brain, and Fatty Acid is the FA in FAAH. The H in FAAH is Hydroxylase, FAAH is an enzyme that messes with the Hydrogen atoms hanging off of Fatty Acids. And an FAAH Inhibitor inhibits that action, allowing the Hydrogen to go unscathed. The cures are not themselves FAAH Inhibitors, but have come along within the scope of the same research as FAAH Inhibitors. The reason Fatty Acids are important is because they create new molecules in your brain that attach to receptors like the CB1 and CB2 receptors, and the CB2 receptor is the receptor that most effectively helps cure or prevent Tumors and Cancer.

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/236250821_The_endocannabinoid_signaling_system_in_cancer
 "Changes in lipid metabolism are intimately related to cancer. Several  classes of bioactive lipids play roles in the regulation of signaling  pathways involved in neoplastic transformation and tumor growth and  progression. The endocannabinoid system, comprising lipid-derived  endocannabinoids, their G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), and the  enzymes for their metabolism, is emerging as a promising therapeutic  target in cancer... A significant number of studies have been performed to clarify the biological role of the ECS, its regulatory functions in health and disease, and the potential of its pharmacological exploitation. The ECS comprises two GPCRs, CB1 and CB2"

"Similarities between effects of cannabinoids-endocannabinoids, omega-3  LCPUFA and CLAs/CLnAs as anti-inflammatory, antiangiogenic,  anti-invasive anti-cancer agents indicate common signalling pathways.  Evidence in vivo and in vitro shows EPA and DHA can form  endocannabinoids that: (i) are ligands for CB(1/2) receptors and  possibly TRPV-1, (ii) have non-receptor mediated bioactivity, (iii)  induce cell cycle arrest, (iii) increase autophagy and apoptosis, and  (iv) augment chemotherapeutic actions in vitro."

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/258114758_Recent_Development_of_CB2_Selective_and_Peripheral_CB1CB2_Cannabinoid_Receptor_Ligands
"...can be achieved by either increasing the selectivity of the ligands for  the CB2 receptor or by developing peripherally restricted CB1/CB2  ligands. A vast number of structurally diverse CB2 ligands have been  developed during the past 3 years, stemming from the screening hits,  which are further optimized towards lead compounds and drug candidates.  Some of CB2 ligands may ultimately enter into clinical use as pain  relief, anticancer, or antipruritic agents.

Lung Cancer

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/51924103_Cannabidiol_inhibits_lung_cancer_cell_invasion_and_metastasis_via_intercellular_adhesion_molecule-1
"This study investigates the role of intercellular adhesion molecule-1  (ICAM-1) within this action. In the lung cancer cell lines A549, H358,  and H460, cannabidiol (CBD; 0.001-3 μM) elicited concentration-dependent  ICAM-1 up-regulation compared to vehicle via cannabinoid receptors,  transient receptor potential vanilloid 1, and p42/44 mitogen-activated  protein kinase. Up-regulation of ICAM-1 mRNA by CBD in A549 was 4-fold  at 3 μM, with significant effects already evident at 0.01 μM. ICAM-1  induction became significant after 2 h, whereas significant TIMP-1 mRNA  increases were observed only after 48 h. Inhibition of ICAM-1 by  antibody or siRNA approaches reversed the anti-invasive and  TIMP-1-upregulating action of CBD and the likewise ICAM-1-inducing  cannabinoids Δ(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol and R(+)-methanandamide when  compared to isotype or nonsilencing siRNA controls. ICAM-1-dependent  anti-invasive cannabinoid effects were confirmed in primary tumor cells  from a lung cancer patient. In athymic nude mice, CBD elicited a 2.6-  and 3.0-fold increase of ICAM-1 and TIMP-1 protein in A549 xenografts,  as compared to vehicle-treated animals, and an antimetastatic effect  that was fully reversed by a neutralizing antibody against ICAM-1 [%  metastatic lung nodules vs. isotype control (100%): 47.7% for CBD +  isotype antibody and 106.6% for CBD + ICAM-1 antibody]. Overall, our  data indicate that cannabinoids induce ICAM-1, thereby conferring TIMP-1  induction and subsequent decreased cancer cell invasiveness."

Breast Cancer

"CB1 and CB2 are overexpressed in primary human breast tumors compared  with normal breast tissue. We have also observed that the breast cancer  cell lines MDA-MB231, MDA-MB231-luc, and MDA-MB468 express CB1 and CB2  receptors."

Gliomas (Brain Cancer)

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/5892365_Cannabinoids_and_Gliomas
"...inhibit the growth of different types of tumor cells, including glioma cells, in laboratory animals. They do so by modulating key cell  signaling pathways, mostly the endoplasmic reticulum stress response,  thereby inducing antitumoral actions such as the apoptotic death of  tumor cells and the inhibition of tumor angiogenesis."

Melanoma (Skin Cancer)

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/221975902_Revisiting_CB1_Receptor_as_Drug_Target_in_Human_Melanoma
"Previous studies have indicated the antitumoral effect of human  melanocytes, human melanoma cell lines expressing CB1 receptor (CB1),  and of the peritumoral administration of endocannabinoids. In the  present study, we systematically screened several human melanoma cell  lines for the expression of CNR1 and demonstrated transcription of the  authentic gene. The product of CNR1, the CB1 protein, was found  localized to the cell membrane as well as to the cytoskeleton. Further,  the studied human melanoma cell lines expressed functional CB1 since  physiological and synthetic ligands, anandamide (AEA), Met-F-AEA, ACEA  and AM251 showed a wide range of biological effects in vitro, for  example anti-proliferative, proapoptotic and anti-migratory. More  importantly, our studies revealed that systemic administration of a  stable CB1 agonist, ACEA, into SCID mice specifically inhibited liver  colonization of human melanoma cells. Since therapeutic options for  melanoma patients are still very limited, the endocannabinoid-CB1  receptor system may offer a novel target."


FAAH Inhibitors

"Two major enzymes have been cloned and investigated thoroughly: fatty  acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) and monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL).  Inhibitors of these enzymes have demonstrated therapeutic benefit in  animal models of several disorders, including neuropathic pain, anxiety  and inflammatory bowel diseases, as well as against the proliferation  and migration of cancer cells. This review describes the major  biochemical properties of FAAH and MAGL, and the design and  pharmacological properties of inhibitors of these enzymes."

The Legal Argument for Religious Marijuana Use (Much More Than Just "Because its my Religion")

First, if anyone does not believe that Marijuana is part of Hinduism, look at this picture, then go do a Google search for the words "Bhang" and "Sadhu", then after you look through those do a search for "Holi Bhang".
 
  What you are seeing in this picture is a Sadhu, smoking Bhang (Cannabis), using a Chillum. Hash is called "Charas". The beads he is wearing are Rudraksha beads. The word Indica means "from India". The word "Ganja" comes from the Ganges River. Marijuana is believed to have first come from the Kush region, where the Kush mountains are, and this is where the word "Kush" comes from.



ANTINOMY BRIEF

A Church is not much different in Nature from a State, see Texas v. White 74 U.S. 700 (1868). Religion is a form of COMITY INTER GENTES from AFFLATUS. The Separation of Church and State in the ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE exists because of the fact that Religion used to be the State, as it is now in Vatican City and the Holy See, Churches may even be a party to CONCORDAT see Ponce v. Roman Catholic Church 210 U.S. 296 (1908); Respublica v. De Longchamps, 1 U.S. 111 (1784); Serbian Orthodox Diocese v. Milivojevich, 426 U. S. 696 (1976); Presbyterian Church v. Hull Church, 393 U.S. 440 (1969), and allows American’s to practice not only one Religion, but any Religion, free from persecution. Not only is there an ANTINOMY between the RELIGIOUS FEEDOM RESTORATION ACT / RELIGIOUS LAND USE AND INSTITUATIONALIZED PERSONS ACT and the CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT, there is a CONFLICTUS LEGEM between the Plaintiff’s Church and the Federal State arising from the ANTINOMY, which can be resolved by the FREE EXERCISE CLAUSE. RELIGIOUS ACCESSION also needs to be considered in the progress of History, Technology and Knowledge. “The term “religious exercise” includes any exercise of religion, whether or not compelled by, or central to, a system of religious belief”, see 42 U.S. Code § 2000cc–5 (7) (a). “the general characteristics of Schedule I substances cannot carry the day”, see Gonzales v. O Centro Espírita Beneficente União do Vegetal 546 U.S. 418 (2006); Church of Holy Light of the Queen V. Eric Holder, Jr., No. 13-35058 (9th Cir. 2014). “Congress must first enact a law criminalizing an activity, attach a penalty, and give the Federal courts Jurisdiction”, see Hudson v. United States 522 U.S. 93 (1997). “Congress shall make no laws prohibiting the Free Exercise of Religion”, see FREE EXERCISE CLAUSE, I AMENDMENT. "If a Government confronts an individual with a choice that pressures the individual to forgo a Religious practice, whether by imposing a penalty or withholding a benefit, then the Government has burdened the individuals free Religious Exercise.", see Sherbert v. Verner 374 U.S. 398 (1963). “Even neutral laws can be used unconstitutionally”, see Yick Wo v. Hopkins 118 U.S. 356 (1886); 42 U.S. Code § 2000bb (a) (2). “failing to accommodate petitioners’ exercise of their “nonmainstream” religions in a variety of ways”, see Cutter v. Wilkinson, 544 U.S. 709 (2005). “conduct business in accordance with their religious beliefs”, see Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. 573 U.S. _ (2014).

The Defendants would likely use Reynolds v. United States 98 U.S. 145 (1878) in their Defense, but if we are going to go that route, Reynolds would be overturned if it were brought to the court today. Reynolds was decided based on USC Ch126, 12 S 501, Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act which was, and is well understood to have been, targeting Mormons, and was A POSTERIORI an illegal Act of Congress and is VOID AB INITIO, see Church of the Lukumi Babalu Aye, Inc. v. Hialeah, 508 U.S. 520 (1993). A FORTIORI Using Reynolds as precedent to allow Congress to prohibit Free Exercise is ULTRA VIRES; Hilton v. Guyot, 159 U.S. 113 (1895); Leary v. United States, 395 U.S. 6 (1969); United States v. Alfonso D. Lopez, Jr., 514 U.S. 549 (1995); United States v. Alvarez, 567 U.S. _ (2012). This case is not an argument that the US Government does not have jurisdiction of the Church or its members and is not a statement of ABJURE, it is an argument that Congress has overstepped its role in the Constitution, that Church law is to be considered in these courts, and that arguments from Reynolds should no longer be considered persuasive to US Courts, see Gonzalez v. Roman Catholic Archbishop of Manila 280 U.S. 1 (1929).

Due to the ANTINOMY of the CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT and The FREE EXERCISE CLAUSE, the RELIGIOUS FREEDOM RESTORATION ACT and the RELIGIOUS LAND USE AND INSTITUTIONALIZED PERSONS ACT, the ABOLITIO LEGIS of the CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT is necessary, it must be ABROGATED as a matter of DE FACTO Right and PENUMBRA.

The Latin phrase SUB ROSA means "under the rose", and is used in English to denote secrecy or confidentiality, similar to the Chatham House Rule. The literal rose and its essence or attar has also played a role in religious and spiritual rites which often would have been held in secret.

Persecution under the modern ULTRA VIRES actions of the US Congress has forced many religions and religious practitioners to operate SUB ROSA or in CLANDESTINE settings AB INVITO, in violation of the FREE EXERCISE CLAUSE which is AD GRAVE DAMNUM to these Religions, see Church of the Lukumi Babalu Aye, Inc. v. Hialeah 508 U.S. 520 (1993). During this time of ULTRA VIRES, CAUSA SINE QUA NON religious practitioners have been CASTIGATED, COERCED and brought to CARCER with no method of ASYLUM established. CESSANTE CAUSA.

During the initial development of the Christian Church under the Roman Empire followers often had to practice in secret. Official policy under Trajan was to provide Christians with the choice between recanting and execution. In 1636, expelled from Massachusetts in the winter, former Puritan leader Roger Williams issued an impassioned plea for freedom of conscience. He wrote, "God requireth not an uniformity of Religion to be inacted and enforced in any civill state; which inforced uniformity (sooner or later) is the greatest occasion of civill Warre, ravishing of conscience, persecution of Christ Jesus in his servants, and of the hypocrisie and destruction of millions of souls." Williams later founded Rhode Island on the principle of religious freedom. He welcomed people of religious belief, even some regarded as dangerously misguided, for nothing could change his view that "forced worship stinks in God's nostrils.".A clandestine church (Dutch: schuilkerk), defined by historian Benjamin J. Kaplan as a "semi-clandestine church", is a house of worship used by religious minorities whose communal worship is tolerated by those of the majority faith on condition that it is discreet and not conducted in public spaces. Schuilkerken are commonly built inside houses or other buildings, and do not show a public façade to the street. “Here, however, defendants challenge plaintiffs’ sincerity, citing plaintiffs' decision to conduct ceremonies in secret until the Supreme Court ruling in favor of the UDV plaintiffs. Plaintiffs’ secrecy does not show a lack of sincerity. Instead, it shows that plaintiffs remained committed to practicing their religion despite the threat of criminal prosecution and loss of professional status.”, see Church of Holy Light of the Queen V. Eric Holder, Jr., No. 13-35058 (9th Cir. 2014) "Moreover, the latter ordinances' various prohibitions, definitions, and exemptions demonstrate that they were "gerrymandered" with care to proscribe religious killings of animals by Santeria church members but to exclude almost all other animal killings. They also suppress much more religious conduct than is necessary to achieve their stated ends. The legitimate governmental interests in protecting the public health and preventing cruelty to animals could be addressed by restrictions stopping far short of a flat prohibition of all Santeria sacrificial practice...The resulting syncretion, or fusion, is Santeria, "the way of the saints." The Cuban Yoruba express their devotion to spirits, called oris has, through the iconography of Catholic saints, Catholic symbols are often present at Santeria rites, and Santeria devotees attend the Catholic sacraments. 723 F. Supp. 1467, 1469-1470 (SD Fla. 1989); 13 Encyclopedia of Religion 66 (M. Eliade ed. 1987); 1 Encyclopedia of the American Religious Experience 183 (C. Lippy & P. Williams eds. 1988)...The sacrifice of animals as part of religious rituals has ancient roots. See generally 12 id., at 554-556. Animal sacrifice is mentioned throughout the Old Testament, see 14 Encyclopaedia Judaica 600, 600-605 (1971), and it played an important role in the practice of Judaism before destruction of the second Temple in Jerusalem, see id., at 605-612. In modern Islam, there is an annual sacrifice commemorating Abraham's sacrifice of a ram in the stead of his son. See C. Glasse, Concise Encyclopedia of Islam 178 (1989); 7 Encyclopedia of Religion, supra, at 456...Santeria adherents faced widespread persecution in Cuba, so the religion and its rituals were practiced in secret. The open practice of Santeria and its rites remains infrequent. See 723 F. SUPP.,;lt 1470; 13 Encyclopedia of Religion, supra, at 67; M. Gonzalez-Wippler, Santeria: The Religion 3-4 (1989)...Pichardo indicated that the Church's goal was to bring the practice of the Santeria faith, including its ritual of animal sacrifice, into the open...The court also concluded that an exception to the sacrifice prohibition for religious conduct would "'unduly interfere with fulfillment of the governmental interest'" because any more narrow restrictions-e. g., regulation of disposal of animal carcasses-would be unenforceable as a result of the secret nature of the Santeria religion. Id., at 1486-1487, and nn. 57-59...Although the practice of animal sacrifice may seem abhorrent to some, "religious beliefs need not be acceptable, logical, consistent, or comprehensible to others in order to merit First Amendment protection." Thomas v. Review Bd. of Indiana Employment Security Div., 450 U. S. 707, 714 (1981). Given the historical association between animal sacrifice and religious worship, see supra, at 524-525, petitioners' assertion that animal sacrifice is an integral part of their religion "cannot be deemed bizarre or incredible." Frazee v. Illinois Dept. of Employment Security, 489 U. S. 829, 834, n. 2 (1989).", see Church of the Lukumi Babalu Aye, Inc. v. Hialeah 508 U.S. 520 (1993)

"The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from
these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in
blood for centuries."

OUTLINE OF THE CASE

All I have to do to get the case accepted by the court is prove Prima Facie (Not beyond a reasonable doubt) that my claim is plausible.

So, the first Cause of Action. According to the Supreme Court, Schedule I substances are not enough to bar a substance from Religious Use. The wording they used is that calling a substance Schedule I as an argument against Religious use "can not carry the day".
https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/546/418/

My Religious rights are regularly violated by the DEA. I have been arrested, charged with both a Misdemeanor and a Felony and jailed (and won the case in the end, everything is dismissed), I have been arrested, had items seized and had a Narcotics Investigation opened (and won the case in the end, everything is dismissed). The fact that the DEA does not openly recognize the O Centro case, and make a Public Statement for lower Enforcement bodies, is dereliction of duty.

Laws must be Neutral and can not Overtly or Covertly ban Religions. The DEA allows large corporations to Manufacture, Import and Posses Schedule I and II Substances using DEA form 225, protocol can be found in 21 CFR 1301.18, the Constitution allows the regulation of Commerce, but not the Regulation of Religion. The Controlled Substances Act is not a Neutral Law.

http://law.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/cadc/02-1211/02-1211a-2011-03-24.html

Second cause of Action, Gerrymandering causing Death. My brother died in 2013 at the age of 11, the final cause of death was Edema (brain swelling). There is solid research (the Doctors even agreed, which is laid out in an Affidavit) that Cannabinoids can reverse Edema. But doctors are either Unable or Unwilling to retrieve Cannabinoids for this purpose due to the current operations of the DEA. The University of Mississippi was a protected Monopoly until August 2016 for Marijuana, at which time the DEA admitted it was allowing this Monopoly and opened up registration to more companies (the DEA admission of this is included in the lawsuit). Mallinckdrot has been allowed to Synthesize Tetrahydrocannabinoids (THC derivatives) but, due to this Gerrymandering, Hospitals do not have access. My brother's Death certificate and Autopsy are included in the lawsuit, as well as the research papers proving he could have been saved. The files showing that they have allowed companies to Manufacture, Import and Posses these Substances is also included, along with case law for what legally defines a Monopoly.

https://www.justice.gov/atr/memorandum-antitrust-division-united-states-department-justice-amicus-curiae-support-application

Third Cause of Action, laws are not Amendments. The 18th Amendment started prohibition, and the Volstead Act was passed by Congress which put it into action. During Prohibition (and in the Volstead Act) Religious use of Alcohol was not Prohibited. If an Amendment did not have the power to violate Religion due to the 1st Amendment, then a mere law can not violate Religion. There is another point made in the third cause of action, but it would take up way more space to explain it here.

Fourth Cause of Action, Rights retained by the People. I am challenging the Controlled Substances Act under Rule 5.1 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and as an Unconstitutional law, the Controlled Substances Act must be overturned. Any judge involved in protecting it is in violation of their oath.
https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/395/6/
https://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/5/137/case.html

Fifth Cause of Action, violation of International Agreements. The United States is a party to various Treaties stating that 1. Religion can not be violated, 2. Religion can not be targeted, and; 3. Religions must be able to manufacture and use Religious items/materials.
