Making Hash in Oklahoma is NOT OK

Get caught making hash in Oklahoma and you could go to prison for life…In related news, many prisons are privately owned. It’s sort of like a landlord who forces you to live in his shitty building for the rest of your life because you did something in Oklahoma that others get paid to do in California.

Oklahoma is the giant rodeo belt buckle on America’s Bible belt.

A bill that mandates a sentence of up to life in prison for converting marijuana or marijuana oil into hashish is heading to Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin’s (R) desk after being passed by the state Legislature on Monday.

House Bill 1798 makes the conviction of a first time offense of manufacturing hashish a felony with a prison mandatory minimum sentence of two years and a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Hashish is made by compressing and heating glandular hairs from marijuana plants known as “kief.” Chemical solvents can also be used to extract the psychoactive components of the marijuana plant, resulting in hash oil.

Under a second offense, sentences would be doubled and those convicted would be unable to receive a suspended sentence or probation.

Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs spokesman Mark Woodward told The Associated Press [1] that the bill is meant to “send a message” that illegal drugs won’t be tolerated in the state.

The Oklahoma Senate approved the legislation in a 44 to 2 vote and the state House approved the legislation 75 to 18.

Under current Oklahoma law, being convicted of cultivating or selling marijuana can result in sentence of up to life in prison. In February, 25-year-old Oklahoma mother of four was sentenced to 10 years in prison [2] for a $31 marijuana sale.

Why Easter is Celebrated on a Different Date Each Year

Easter is on a different day every year…it is important to understand why.

An epic battle is being fought in the heavens and in nature. There will be lots of new life and lots of thriving between now and the end of summer. During fall, things seem to die but come back to life in at the end of winter. This story has been told and retold as an epic battle for Ages. Any fair battle starts with a clean battle field. Each army (or professional fighter) stands across from the other and the battle field is as even as possible before the war begins. With pro fighters, everything is as equal as possible – their weight and qualifications nearly identical.

Equal is the key here.

The sun controls life on earth right down to the time of year life begins: Spring. This is when the struggle for survival begins…the battle has begun.

Easter is at the end of a countdown of celestial equality.

To arrive at Easter’s date:

First we wait for the Spring Equinox – This is when day and night are EQUAL.

Next, we watch for a full moon – This is when both the earth and moon have EQUAL light and dark.

Finally, we celebrate Easter on the following SUNday

The Easter celebration is the celebration of the beginning of the sun’s battle in the sky; a battle that affects every living thing on this planet. This is why Easter is celebrated on this day. Today is the day when the slate is cleared and the battle begins.

Happy Easter!
