Maryland Man Held In Nebraska Pot Case

WOOD RIVER, Neb. (AP) — A Maryland man was arrested on a marijuana-for-sale allegation after a traffic stop on Interstate 80 in south-central Nebraska.

A news release from the Nebraska State Patrol says a trooper pulled over an eastbound car a little after 11:03 p.m. Thursday near the Wood River interchange.

The patrol says the trooper smelled marijuana, and a search turned up nearly 33 pounds of pot in the trunk.

The driver was traveling alone. He was identified as Travis Bielaski, 36, of Catonsville, Md.

Jail records say Bielaski remained in custody on Friday. Online court records don’t list the name of his attorney.

    The director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) — is an advocate for the government position regarding the drug war. But not everyone knows that he and his office are mandated to tell lies as part of their Congressional authorization.

    According to Title VII Office of National Drug Control Policy Reauthorization Act of 1998: H11225:

    Responsibilities. –The Director– […]

    (12) shall ensure that no Federal funds appropriated to the Office of National Drug Control Policy shall be expended for any study or contract relating to the legalization (for a medical use or any other use) of a substance listed in schedule I of section 202 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 812) and take such actions as necessary to oppose any attempt to legalize the use of a substance (in any form) that–
    A. is listed in schedule I of section 202 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 812); and
    B. has not been approved for use for medical purposes by the Food and Drug Administration;

    Now, let’s take as a simple example, the issue of medical marijuana. If the government finds that marijuana Has “currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States” or “accepted safety for use of the drug under medical supervision,” then by law, marijuana cannot remain in Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act, which would immediately legalize it for medical purposes.

    But by law, the drug czar must oppose any attempt to legalize the use (in any form). Despite the fact that there is extensive evidence of medical marijuana’s safety and effectiveness (including the fact that even the federal government supplies it to patients and in light of US Patent 6630507 Awarded to the US Government in 2003 by the Department of Mental Health and Hygiene “Cannabinoids as antioxidants”) the drug czar would know about all this information, however he is required by law to lie about it all.
