MERP Newsletter #002: Lets Make Obama Release Marc Emery and Re-Legalize Marijuana Self Cultivation

Bruce W. Cain, Author of the "MERP" Model

Note: If you cannot read or translate this go to online version:

Welcome to the 2nd "MERP Newsletter."  Since I just added the entire 2010 "Global Marijuana March" (GMM) to the mailing list I thought it would be a good idea to begin by describing how the MERP model is different from the current "tax and regulate" models and "Medical Marijuana" models

But first I would like to implore all of the Global Drug Reform Organizations to help one of our most important leaders: Marc Emery.  Here is what I would like to recommend:

(1) Stage local protests at your city halls etc. on Saturday September 19th, 2009.

(2) Make up signs that say something like this:

"Obama: Clemency for Marc Emery and Immediately Re-Legalize Marijuana Self Cultivation or the People Will Rise Up Against You"

or perhaps you could even add the fact that it is also a "National Security Issue" and that we will rise up against you if you don't represent the majority of Americans that now want Marijuana Legalized.

(3) Distribute my latest video and translate/distribute the text of that video to your activist communities. Tools for doing this are discussed below.  Here is the link to the article and accompanying video:

Obama: Free Marc Emery, Legalize Marijuana Or Else

Now a little more information on the MERP Model for Marijuana Re-Legalization.  I truly hope that MERP will become a primary issue for the 2010 Global Marijuana Marches in May 2010.

In a nutshell the MERP model would allow any adult over 18 to grow, all the Marijuana they would like, without ANY taxation, regulation or other government interference (e.g., there would be no control over THC levels etc.).  It is very important to understand that MERP absolutely does not preclude the issuance of commercial licensing or commercial taxation and regulation.  But self cultivation is protected as an inalienable sacred right.  Such a system would self regulate the market without much need for regulation since the current profit margins (e.g., $300 to $600 and ounce) would be replaced by normal profits where an ounce would probably not sell for more than 100 percent over the cost of growing.  In other words adults could grow their Marijuana for free and commercial growers would have to compete in a free and open market.

And since the GMM events take place throughout the planet I have also included a translation widget at the top of the email so this email newsletter can be read in virtually any language.  Most of the articles also contain this translation widget for the same reason.

You can always read the latest on the MERP Model and strategy at the following website:

MERP Headquarters
The Marijuana Re-Legalization Policy Project (MRPP)= "MERP"

You will find the following link on this page:

How Non-English Activists Can Contact MERP Headquarters

This link can be used to facilitate communication between all groups as it allows you to translate your email communications from your native language to any other language. It should also allow me to answer any questions concerning MERP from non-English speaking activists.

At this point I would like to encourage you to lend some support to one of the most dedicated Marijuana reform activists: Canadian Marc Emery.  He is scheduled to be extradited to the United States on September 21st, 2009 for selling Marijuana seeds to Americans.  Please read through the following article and either attend or stage an event on September 19th to protest his extradition:

Obama: Free Marc Emery, Legalize Marijuana Or Else

At any rate we are just getting organized here and hope that you will help spread the word so we can end this senseless "War on Marijuana Consumers" as quickly as possible.  To that end we highly encourage you to forward the following link to all of your friends and activists so that they can also receive the MERP Newsletter and become involved with promoting and implementing the MERP Model for Marijuana Re-Legalization.   The sooner our numbers grow the sooner MERP will get implemented.

Yours in Peace and Freedom,

  1. Obama: Free Marc Emery, Legalize Marijuana Or Else
    By (1) refusing to free Marc Emery and (2) refusing to Re-Legalize the Self-Cultivation of Marijuana, President Obama is well on his way to becoming the most hypocritical President in US history If he refuses to do these two things immediately the American People should understand that they have been betrayed. The time for the American People to demand these actions, from President Obama, is right now.
  2. Bruce Cain discusses Marijuana Re-Legalization on "Time for Hemp"
