Doug Yurchey's Report On Dan Rather's Marijuana Report

n this day and age, to still have
‘Reefer Madness’ aired over the networks is madness. It is
insane to broadcast reports whose only purpose is to sway
audiences to the same, old, federal-agenda that we have heard
ever since 1936. Rather’s Report does not appear as ‘Reefer
Madness’ when aired on the HD channels in sparkling, colorful
detail. Wait a minute, that’s what television is…PROGRAMMING!
Why would I think ‘shows’ are anything more, such as
informative, educational or just plain capable of telling the
What else do you expect from Dan Rather?
Mr. 60 Minutes (like his previous show and many other highly
paid talking heads) never exposed a thing. Certainly, 60
Minutes, Dan and the boys are not running an EXPOSE’ – they
are high-tech propaganda in its purest form. Why are these
guys NEVER subject to TV ratings? If NO ONE watched and
ratings were 0.00, ratings would be faked and the poor
public would STILL have to be fed the BS. The programming is
not blatant lies or anything illegal; it takes the viewers
in wrong directions. It is subtle MANIPULATION OF THE
MASSES. Dan Rather and so many others like him know they
have influence and gravitational pull over you. They push
you into preconceived agendas that are always aligned with
the holy, federal government. They will touch upon federal
crimes, but never attack the real problems or real issues.
As long as they have you ‘thinking,’ they are the sources
for cutting-edge reports, then they have succeeded. As long
as they ‘move’ you, then they have won.
these people at work carefully. See if you can understand
the real goal of the ‘special’ you view. See if you can read
between the frames of the film and realize what they are
really saying. They do what good lawyers do in any
courtroom. They will hit you with THEIR shortcomings; take
YOUR side in the issue FIRST. It is called a
preemptive-strike. They ‘spin’ the facts and evidence in the
case to THEIR way of thinking. They taint the truth with the
demographical hope that you BUY it en mass. DON’T BUY IT… Be
stronger than that when you face programming. QUESTION IT!
After watching Dan Rather’s MARIJUANA Report, we should be
questioning and challenging that very report. In the
beginning, to get your attention, they previewed sensational
stories ahead in the piece:
Scientists say Marijuana will be the basis for a
‘blockbuster’ amount of new products and MEDICINES.
Aspirin of the 21st Century!
Marijuana in a spray bottle?
Why are fields of Marijuana legally grown in our National
Rather’s Report had SO many good things to say about pot,
really. That is what they do like any skilled magician with
the ‘pledge’ and the ‘turn.’ Wait until you receive the
negative ‘prestige’ in the end. They will bait you then
dovetail the viewer to their PLAN that had been laid out for
you all along; to take any good thing for the public…and
destroy it! Here are some of the Marijuana-positives
presented in the recent Report:
* They interviewed the head of a federal facility in
Mississippi. The extremely secure facility researches new medicines derived
from pot! The ‘marijuana factory,’ funded by your tax dollars, STUDIES
MARIJUANA legally. The last words aired by the government agent was
‘…(marijuana) is a good drug.’
* They interviewed the scientist who discovered THC (1963), the active agent
in marijuana. His early research led to the government’s Marijuana Farm that
produces hundreds of pounds each year for research all over the world.
* They admitted, ‘Marijuana was the #1 Cash Crop!’
* They mentioned how California passed Act 215 ten years ago making it legal
for Californians to medically use cannabis with a doctor’s excuse.
* They, the Powers That Be, actually revealed some of the incredible and
unknown history of Hemp. The word ‘hemp’ was never uttered in Rather’s
Report; which is sacrilege in the 21st Century. George Washington using
‘pot’ was discussed. In 1619, the state of Virginia REQUIRED ‘hemp’ (as it
was known for thousands of years) cultivation. The Report stated ‘marihuana’
had been used as ‘money.’ The Ladies Home Journal suggested its usage three
times a day. Rather’s report even flashed the 1942, wartime, government film
asking patriotic farmers to grow hemp while never exposing any of the
amazing background story of the controversial USDA-training film ‘Hemp for
* The Report showed numerous, legitimate, scientific groups working on the
goal of producing beneficial, cannabis-related products.
* The Report presented a few cases of people physically helped by the use of
marijuana. One woman, in particular, had a bad case of shingles. Pot usage
helped her face muscles and alleviated her pain. In so many cases, marijuana
was nearly a panacea; helping patients in all areas that conventional and
‘chemical’ pharmaceuticals have failed.
Then…slowly I turn…and Dan Rather’s SPIN
suddenly views Cannabis Clubs and ‘dispenseries of marijuana’ as
DRUG-DEALERS! That is not the case in California, but the ‘man’
just does not like it. The government does not like it that vast
sums of money have exchanged hands in pot deals for whatever
reason and they do not get their Mafia cut. The pharmaceutical
companies do not like it that people are simply growing or using
home remedies CHEAPLY. They would prefer selling you a very
The Report stressed how when one of these pot dispensaries or
Cannabis Clubs comes into town, the crime level increases. There
are ‘shoot-outs’ and break-ins. Basically, the M-clubs are a
‘danger’ to the neighborhood. Of course, there is no mention of
the Amsterdam-effect or the truth. The truth is when MARIJUANA
is permitted and used, crime goes down. There are less arrests
and delinquency. Amsterdam is the proof.
The Report attacked the Cannabis Clubs. They examined a case
where a dog was given a marijuana excuse from a doctor. The
segment was designed to ridicule the idea of using weed as
medicine; anyone could receive a pot prescription. They
interviewed a school principle faced with the dilemma of
students having a ‘doctor’s excuse for marijuana.’ Dan Rather’s
piece purposely focused on ways how ANYONE could receive a
doctor’s excuse. What this does is ruin it for the REAL CASES
WHERE THE ONLY SOLUTION TO PHYSICAL PROBLEMS AND PAIN IS
CANNABIS! (The truth is HEMP, as it ought to be called, should
be reasonably priced and available in drug stores).
Dan Rather (believe it or not) showed us a ‘straight,’ normal
mouse. Then, we see a mouse that is ‘very, very high.’ The high
one is STONED and virtually motionless, just lying down. The
‘normal’ one sniffed and was hyperactive. Maybe the stoned one
got a lot on his mind now since you have pumped him with massive
amounts of potent pot! He’s only a little mouse! Something tells
me he was not given a mouse-sized dose of THC. You take 20 hits
of windowpane acid and see if you are not lying down
contemplating universes colliding! Is this not 21st Century
Reefer Madness in HD?
The Report explored anything and everything but the plain truth
that smoking it is a benefit. They outlined how marijuana became
illegal, barely. Harry J. Anslinger and his slick, McCarthy-like
tactics were mentioned. Why were William Randolph Hearst’s name
and sins omitted? They also failed to name the Dupont Corp. as a
How about a British company, GW Pharmaceuticals, recently, being
the first licensed company to sell a CHEMICAL made from
cannabis? Now, there is a spray bottle of SATIVEX. Whatever
happened to Marinol? The synthetic THC has been used for
decades. Why does the Report only focus on the ‘GW’ company as
if it was the first time this had ever been done? Stop making
chemicals from a NATURAL CURE! The synthetics are not as good or
as beneficial as the real thing. The chemical way always has
side effects and is a risk to users. Pharmaceuticals/chemicals
are the real danger.
One can make an analogy to Tesla at this point. His Free Energy
could have greatly helped the world. Just as herbal, home,
God-given PLANT remedies WORK. The ‘cheap’ (free) cures should
be known as well as available. Instead, ‘they’ have erased the
truth; buried the truth; or worse, totally twisted and perverted
the truth. The few on top always gain and the large population
of people always suffers.
The natural way is what SHOULD be broadcasted over the airwaves.
The public should be informed and educated on true, natural
cures. Medicines could be grown in our backyard. Instead, the
mighty chemical and oil companies rule the world with their
propaganda via the media. People remain in the dark. We have had
the answers and the cures all along; the answers are natural,
The Report goes on to show a Canadian company with the first
license to make ‘plant-based’ solutions including Marijuana.
Prairie Plant Systems in Canada received the only shot available
to make a cannabis-based business succeed. They are the only
company in North America legally allowed to sell Marijuana for
research without breaking the law. (California Cannabis Clubs
are legal, Dan). One would think that since 1988, Prairie Plant
Systems would be a BOOMING business. Dan Rather’s Report showed
us how the company has been very unsuccessful. Arrests were made
upon obtaining seeds. Everything seemed to go wrong for this
Prairie Plant Systems grows its weed in Canada where it is cold.
The company grows its marijuana plants UNDER A LAKE. Their pot
is not grown the easiest and most efficient way, such as on a
tropical island. No, its cannabis is grown in an inhospitable
place. The Ebola virus has a level 4 security. The security
level for PPS is level 8! This tells us that when they finally
legalize marijuana production…IT IS SABOTAGED! They are ruining
it. This is pot production the hard way. They allowed the
experiment to fail.
The purpose of including the Canadian company in Dan’s Report
was obvious. The message was clear as a bell: If you intend to
start a pot business and get rich, FORGET IT! You will lose your
shirt! You will encounter too many problems; do not even try.
The government knows how to grow pot and is doing so on federal
land. National Parks and certain designated lands are reserved
for growing pot. The Report tells us that illegal immigrants
were brought in to tend the federal, marijuana crops. Again, we
have ‘shoot-outs’ and the association with the criminal element.
The truth is more likely that the good, old, U.S. government IS
producing pot and pot products the right way. Maybe there is an
underground where only those in the know have access to certain
‘black-market,’ high quality, pot products? Dan Rather’s Report
blasts the federal, pot fields as well. But, there is a
difference. Dan Rather is not calling the federal government a
bunch of DRUG-DEALERS…and the truth is the federal government
(CIA) is absolutely a gang of drug-runners. The War on Drugs is
a joke. Drugs and weapons are big business and the feds are
guilty of pushing both. Do not be surprised to discover that the
feds have been behind the largest drug cartels and have been for
a very long time.
They actually reported that the ‘marijuana trade was more
dangerous now than it ever was before.’ It remains ‘Reefer
Madness’ to this day. There has been no progression or
advancement in 80 years. The establishment will still LIE to
you. Do not believe the propaganda. See it for what it is…not
the truth. Why do ‘they’ treat their audience as stupid,
No, Dan Rather, we’re mad as hell as we’re not going to take it
anymore! How about treating the audience as INTELLIGENT viewers
for once in your life, Dan? We are more enlightened these days,
some of us, anyway. It is not the 30s, 40s or 50s where the
public just accepts what celebrities tell them. Today, we are
going to analyze the messenger. Big Brother does not like being
exposed and the truth getting out. Stop telling us what we are
supposed to think!
How about informing the public on the great many quality
products, medicines, oil & new FOOD products that can be
produced from MARIJUANA? Now, THAT is a story!
The conclusion of the Report was that ‘smoking marijuana was a
very poor form of medicine and HAZARDOUS to your health!’
Nothing in the documentary suggested that.
Can you believe it? That was their last word. Forget the real
information, truth and medicinal data ‘they’ presented. Forget
government info and numerous independent studies to the
contrary. Forget thousands, or maybe millions, of personal
accounts where HEMP is the only cure. LIES do not work on us
anymore; we’ve grown up, Dan.
The truth is a REAL ‘special’ would have informed the public of
the many versatile, positive uses scientists will find for the
hemp plant. Maybe SMOKING it is not bad either!
