As I sit here in this shithole, I can not help but remember my freedom. It will be two years in a few days since I was last with you and I want to take the time to tell you all how very much your love and support has meant and continues to mean to me. I love and miss you very much. Have a very happy 4th and remember what we are and will always fight for: FREEDOM FREEDOM FREEDOM! We will win soon, the walls of Babylon are slowly falling. Stay strong, stay free.

Today marks two full years of my life spent in prison. I believe I will be free soon and will once again be with you all who I love so dearly and miss so much. Strangely, I am not bitter nor sad by this as I believe we must all stand on the principles we believe in. It is friends, family and the support of the community which gives me the strength to face each day with head high knowing what we fight for and believe is right.

JAH continue to bless us each everyone.
Love and Respect,
Eddy Lepp

    So Eddy didn’t get the “strict scrutiny” which the UDV case got….. only the “compelling interest” test.

    Do you know what NIDA says about the diversion of Synthetic Cannabinoids (the ones turning up in the ‘incense’, like Spice)?

    Now, keep in mind that the inventor of one of these substances (a medical researcher here in the states), warns that these (synthetic) substances have a much higher chance of abuse because of their singular chemical composition, and may have unseen-as-yet side effects including the possibility of death from overdose (not possible with vegetable cannabinoids). The answer to my question is below, directly from a Federal Agency (pay special attention to the last line).

    A NIDA spokesperson defended the agency’s funding for Huffman’s research, saying that studying “artificial variations of brain chemicals … has yielded major research and clinical advances.”

    Research into cannabinoids, said the spokesperson, “has the potential to usher in the next generation of pain medications,” as well as possible treatments for obesity and multiple sclerosis.”

    “The scientific record demonstrates that the cost of discontinuing the pursuit of potentially life-saving medications, because such compounds could be illegally diverted and abused, would be unacceptably high.”
