ThePuffingtonhost.com aggregates medical cannabis news from around the world into one easy to navigate site. In addition they provide unique content from industry leaders like: Ed Rosenthal, Mamakind, Eddy Lepp, Marc Emery, Mickey Martin and more. Recently the tone of The Puff´s coverage has shifted from positive news stories about growth and health as well as celebrity antics to covering this new wave of federal intervention across the country. This federal intervention is in direct contrast to the “hands off” approach of states medical programs promised by Obama.
Cannabis Warrior Mickey Martin writes, “Even in the midst of a sweeping crackdown, there were people who said I will start to worry when they start raiding Oaksterdam. Well, start to worry, because on April 2nd, hundreds of heavily armed Federal agents stormed the home and businesses of Oaksterdam founder, Richard Lee. This raid has sent shockwaves throughout an already terrified medical cannabis industry, and has brought many to the fateful decision of Fight or Flight.“
“Allowing the industry to flourish only to pull the rug out from underneath the local governments who rely on tax dollars, the employees depending on high paying jobs and the ill patients who will now be pushed back into the dark alleys to obtain their much needed medication has caused a significant and vocal reaction from those within the movement,” Said PuffHost founder Derek Peterson.

In the words of the great Bill Hicks:
“George Bush says ℠we are losing the war on drugs´. Well you know what that implies? There´s a war going on, and people on drugs are winning it! Well what does that tell you about drugs? Some smart, creative motherf!#@ers on that side.”
Yes, Bill“¦smart, creative motherf!#@ers indeed“¦
