RonAustin has got it spot-on! Kudos to you. Thank you for taking the time to write this letter to our mayor. I can't think of a more eloquent way to pose your rock-solid arguments.
On Pot Crack-Down Commences

Right said! Legalize marijuana. If you don't like the idea of that, move the hell out of liberal Santa Barbara. Perhaps Ventura County is more your cup of tea, where the VC Sherriff will be sure to promptly come round up your kids when they've freshly turned 18 and lock them up with hardcore criminals for simply enjoying some pot. I would know - it happened to me.
Marijuana for life!
On Free-Floating Hysteria
Posted on September 8 at 10:37 a.m.
>>>When I debated Bearman in the early 90s about his desire to have marijuana legalized, he never said ANYTHING about the supposed medical benefits of marijuana.
Dr. Bearman comes from a family of doctors. Dr. Bearman's father was a doctor, who was taught about the benefits of marijuana during his studies in med school in the middle of the last century. Dr. Bearman learned of the medical benefits of marijuana extolled by his own physician father. You're actually going to sit here and argue that he was not well-aware of and well-versed in marijuana's medical utility as recently as the early 1990's??? He could have argued circles around you both then and now. And I'm sure he eviscerated your position then, just as he does now.
How disingenuous are you?!?
On What This Country Needs Is a Marijuana Summit

Here's hoping your own doctors don't withhold marijuana from you if and when you come to find that you yourself would benefit from its application.
Unless, perhaps you prefer the prospect of a slow, painful death, exacerbated by pharmeceuticals that complicate your body's immune response and slowly dose you with industrial-grade cancers.
Here's hoping your hypocrisy, blind delusion, and fascist tendencies towards persecution of your fellow man will lose out to reason, compassion, and humility with being on the wrong side of an argument that is robbing hundreds of thousands of people of their freedom.
I know you know you're on the wrong side of the argument, because no one who's actually informed enough to have ever tried marijuana could possibly put forth such utter drivel and think themselves enlightened. And no one who's never even tried marijuana is qualified to pass an intelligent opinion about its affects. You'd have to be high to think you can (or a prison guard who profiteers from the misery of non-violent drug offenders clogging the justice system). Perhaps you'd like to divulge what kind of wacky chemical cocktail it is your primary physician has got you on.
You've been lied to all your life, Cazador (lest you know the folly of every argument you're making, in which case you've been conciously lying to everyone about marijuana your entire life).
Try thinking outside the box. Not a single argument you've posed need be respected by anyone with half a wit capable of evaluating and dismissing your tripe. What a tool of the state. What a mindless government mouthpiece. What a sad, pathetic use of a human mind.
Reasonable people do not disagree about the evident truth that the War on Marijuana has done immensely far greater harm than the drug could ever be accused of. 3/4 of 1 million people given a criminal record each year for pot?!? Are you even intelligent to know how overwhelmingly huge of a percentage of the full appropriation of the criminal justice system is spent pursuing and prosecuting non-violent drug offenders?!
Zero tolerance for fascism. Zero tolerance for the mindless drivel of the over-medicated zombie drones like Cazador who make sense to no one but their fellow pill-poppers, a la Rush Limbaugh.

Thank you Dr. Bearman! You are fighting the good fight. Who are these hopeless, mindless goons who can't come to terms with the fact that marijuana is already all around us?! High school students consistently report that it's easier for them to procure marijuana than alcohol.
What kind of misinformed enemy of the state makes the argument that we must keep marijuana ILLEGAL in the express interest of protecting our children?! What total and complete mind-control propagandist rubbish to suggest that marijuana is better kept out of the hands of the young by keeping it in a DE-regulated black market? Ha! Have some pride, America. Recognize that those who argue in support of keeping marijuana illegal are insulting your intelligence and withholding a powerful cancer-fighting substance from the public, for the benefit of corporate pharmaceutical behemoths who want to drug you with a dangerous synthetic cocktail of their own copyrighted creation. Can't patent a plant, folks. I wonder why the drug companies don't want straight laced average Joe Blow to know how much help they could receive from a plant.
What total, complete inept failures the drug-war-generation is! They put forward inane, contradictory, and cyclical reasoning and expect that they won't be called out on it. Shills indeed. Mindless drones. Don't let feigned prestige drill falsehoods into yet another generation!
Those who argue against absolute legal access to marijuana for adult use are wholly ignorant or morally compromised; and ironically they either do already, or would receive immense benefit from its use. Pay no mind to fascist tools. Keep it simple, stupid. Keep your laws off my body.
Legalization is coming. Vote, California! Legalize it for the SAFETY of our children!

Mike Byrne -
You wail on the skins, bud! I didn't notice a single bad beat the entire show... I only regret not telling you in person just how phenomenal your playing was! Keep it up, Mr. Moon!

Thank you, Muddy Waters! You've done a great thing in booking this show. Work your magic again soon!

This show was white hot! Truly the stealth performance of the year! The energy (and the temperature) in the room were through the roof! The place is small, and it looked like they could have even crammed more guests into the space, had they been greedy folk.
But no! Instead we were treated to a truly intimate show with some amazing talent in tip-top form! They couldn't have appeared any more relaxed and ready to rage this epic little coffee shop. The whole band was so down-to-earth and personable, they were all standing around outside, just waiting to fraternize with their lucky guests. Dave Navarro called my girlie a sweetie, and Billy took a photo with her and signed my poster! I even got to ask Billy a question I've always wanted to know the answer to about 'Landslide,' and he offered an unabridged, detailed description of how that song came to be. (It's my secret and I'll never tell!) It couldn't have been a better night! They played beautiful music, and it was barely any SP material!
Billy spoke at length with attendees right after the show and lamented what has become of his ability to create a feasible document of art in the corporate structure of modern music, and said not to expect many large arena SP shows ever again, because his heart's just not in it and he doesn't want to just rehash the greatest hits night after night, and still end up facing criticisms for not playing someone's "Song". The expectations of a large audience are so commonly unfocused on the art layed out before them. Not so on this night! Everyone felt the energy; there was a keen focus and appreciation for the craft put on exhibit last night.
Long story short, this show was not to be missed, AND YOU ALL MISSED IT! Ha! Billy & Gang (and <100 lucky guests) get the last laugh. Eff all the haters!
Billy can come back and play Muddy Waters anytime. I'll be there. Just don't complain when he doesn't play "your" song. Trust me - you don't know best.
