… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Marijuana in Washington state: where, when, and how much?

Washington stores opened their doors on Tuesday to sell cannabis legally for the first time. Here's what you need to know, Amanda Holpuch, Tuesday 8 July 2014

A few Washington stores are opening their doors on Tuesday to sell recreational marijuana, legally, for the first time in the state. The Evergreen State joins Colorado as the only US states that allows the sale and possession of recreational marijuana.

Where can people legally buy marijuana in Washington?

The state’s liquor control board granted 25 retail marijuana licenses on Monday, but only six of those stores planned to open on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. Stores are suffering from the high demand but low supply of cannabis, which can only be acquired from state-certified growers.

Washington authorities capped the number of possible retail stores at 334, but the stores remain blocked in some local jurisdictions.

The state has granted so few licenses because it is overwhelmed by the demand for the permits. More than 7,000 people applied for marijuana licenses, inundating the 18 licensing investigators tasked with with reviewing marijuana growing license applications.

How much does a legal gram cost?

While some stores have said they will sell a gram from $10 to $12 – comparable to prices at unregulated dispensaries in the state – others anticipate selling marijuana at $20 a gram or more because of the low supply and high taxes, which are 25% wholesale and 25% at retail.

Do you have to be a Washington resident to buy from licensed dispensaries?

No, but you do have to be 21 or older. If you meet that requirement, you can purchase up to an ounce of dried marijuana, up to 7g of concentrated marijuana (like hash) and up to 16oz of pot-infused treats (like edibles). Edibles, however, must be approved by the state and no stores have been granted that approval yet.

Where can people consume cannabis?

Public consumption isn’t allowed in Washington – so smoking or ingesting edibles is prohibited on streets, in parks or other public places. It is legal in people's homes, though apartment complexes and hotels can ban smoking, especially if the building already has anti-tobacco smoking laws. State authorities are considering legalizing the activity at specially created private-use clubs or other similar locations.

How did recreational marijuana become legal in Washington?

Washington residents voted in favor of the legalization initiative, I-502, in November 2012. It went into effect in December of that year, but lawmakers were given a year to establish the procedures and criteria necessary to implement the law.

Implementation of the law was also delayed because marijuana is still considered a narcotic by the federal government. As the government works to change drug policy, it has not shown much interest in interfering with the states' laws, and in April, US attorney general Eric Holder said he is “cautiously optimistic” about the initiatives in Washington and Colorado.

Is this different from Colorado's recreational marijuana law?

Yes, there are considerable differences between the two states' laws. One key difference is that Colorado licenses permit people to grow and sell marijuana while Washington separates the activities. Also, only people with licenses can grow marijuana in Washington, while Colorado allows residents to home grow pot.

What other states are expected to legalize recreational marijuana?

An initiative to legalize recreational marijuana in Alaska is set to appear on the state ballot in November, though it was originally to be voted on in August. The proposal would allow adults 21 and older to possess up to 1oz of marijuana and to grow as many as six cannabis plants for personal consumption, as well as set up foundations for creating commercial marijuana sales in the state.

Campaigners are focusing on getting initiatives on state ballots in the 2016 election, especially in states that have demonstrated openness to legalization, such as Nevada and California, which was the first state to legalize medicinal marijuana and has also decriminalized marijuana. In December, state attorney general Kamala Harris said that legalization would save the state millions of dollars annually.

New York’s governor Andrew Cuomo signed a medical marijuana bill into law on Monday, though he is cagey about full legalization.

Washington DC is also considering legalization, but because it isn't a state, any initiatives are up for congressional review. Mayor Vincent Gray signed a bill decriminalizing possession up to one ounce, but House Republicans have blocked funding for the bill.
