It's Just a Ticket

On October 1st,  Gov. Arnold  Schwarzenegger signed bill SB 1449 reducing the penalty for possession of less than an ounce of cannabis to a $100 infraction.  Now, it is no longer any more of a blemish on your record than a parking violation.  You know Arnold is right on this, but he also does not support Prop 19. Most critics state that SB 1449 is a good step.  Be careful though, SB 1449 won't go in effect till January 2011.  On the other hand, Prop 19 will go into effect the following day, November 3rd, if it passes.

On Tuesday, November 2nd, Prop 19 will appear on the ballot. Prop 19 will allow persons over the age of 21 to purchase cannabis at fine establishments. Just like alcohol, the bill will give state and local government the ability to tax the sale of cannabis for adult consumption.

These two new bills are a stepping stone for something wonderful. Prop 19 is more than the legalization of cannabis.  Think about it, abandoned and closed buildings re-opened as coffee shops, head shops, or even a cannabis style restaurant.  Then jobs appear, and the state can take their cut too.  The taxes alone will help state fund projects like transportation,schools, roads and public safety. The police can now prioritize where they're needed the most. This bill has the ability to generate billions in annual revenue for California.

Let's make Prop 19 a reality. Vote Yes on 19. Change is always good. Also just in from the hotline...Shayne K. will be interviewed by a local publication on his views as a cannabis refugee from the East. The interview is going down on election day.

Stephen Hearn Gets Grimey

After living in California for 9 months, I became strapped for cash and things started getting tough.  Not having a dime to your name will make you go to the extremes.  So, Shayne introduced me to the recycling game.
Never in my life have I been so stoked to see a 5 cent refund on the side of a bottle.  Having a recycling center up the street, I knew what had to be done.  I was skeptical at first about crawling around in dumpsters, but it all came pretty natural for me.
It isn't that much money and you have to get a little dirty, but not only does recycling help save the planet, it helped save my life.  My lesson I learned is if you go broke, all you gotta do is pick up a little trash.

Herbs to I is a sacrament...

November 2nd is coming up. Vote YES on Proposition 19!

Higher BMX

Here is an essay that I wrote on September 1st. You can find an alternate version in the October Issue of Nug Magazine, or on their website.

For me, riding BMX and consuming cannabis is one in the same. Both acts have the extraordinary ability to raise the body's vibratory frequency, and when put together with a focused intent, the end result tends to be a conscious-elevating experience. Through the integration of marijuana and BMX riding, I have merged two of my most important spiritual activities into one.

In just the same way as prayer, yoga, or dance can be meditative, so can certain forms of technical BMX riding. Repetitive movements, intense concentration, and the partnership between mind and body are all required to successfully perform tricks on a bike. Riding and doing tricks has always given me that "high" feeling, and the "high" that I experience when riding a bike is not much different than the "high" felt when consuming cannabis. A bike is made up of triangles, diamonds, and circles, all of which act as energy emitters. Through riding, your body and bike work together cooperatively to raise the vibratory level of the body, which raises consciousness and elevates the spirit.

A similar effect is felt when consuming ganja. Marijuana has the wonderful ability to unite and enhance both hemispheres of the brain as new, clean blood rushes to the head. This enhancement and unification of the left and right portions of the brain results in the "high". Furthermore, as you consume cannabis, your body begins to resonate at a higher frequency than normal. Your body's vibration skyrockets, creating a spiritually unique feeling of openness and increased awareness.

So naturally, as these two activities became more important to me over the years, and their physiological and spiritual benefits became more clear, I began to merge the two. The result being a completely new and exciting experience. For me, when I ride my bike with the aid of ganja, I am transformed fully into the moment. Increased concentration, awareness, creativity, and relaxation all contribute to the BMX experience. They go hand in hand, and together both marijuana and BMX provide me with a heightened level of energy, spirituality, and fun.
