Lubbock Liberty The Effects Of Marijuana Prohibition With RAMP

Lubbock Liberty and Republicans Against Marijuana Prohibition (RAMP) came together for a look at how marijuana possession became a crime in 1937 and the economic, medical, and criminal justice implications of the nearly 80 years of prohibition that have followed. The Texas Legislature has before it a number of bills that consider reforming marijuana laws. Delve into this hot topic with serious discussion from experts and a little Reefer Madness (1936 Film).

After welcoming everyone and a brief information run down, we hear from Assistant Executive Director of RAMP Zoe Russell which leads into a segment from the film (embedded below).  Then Audrey Redford presents current research on the economic effects of prohibition before joining Judge John Delaney for a questions and answer session with questions submitted from the audience.

She continues to work diligently in order to provide another way for us to take control of our government.  Thanks to all for the input, participation, and support discussing the various bills and topics presented at this workshop.

Lubbock Liberty Workshop With Dr. Richard Chip Peterson Financial And Political Prospects For The United States

Lubbock Liberty held it's first Workshop of 2015 on January 31 at the Mahon Public Library featuring Dr. Richard "Chip" Peterson, Ph.D. to discuss financial and political issues that face the people of the United States of America.

Dr. Peterson tells us, "The US is facing nearly intractable financial problems because our politicians have made too many promises that they will not be able to keep. While our nation's formal indebtedness already is approximately as large as our total Gross Domestic Product, that debt is only the tip of the iceberg."
