Recently I went up to Wesleyan University in Connecticut on a speaking gig organized by Students for a Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP). It was a miserable night—high winds, freezing rain and four inches of slush on the ground. I figured maybe 20 kids would brave the elements to hear a Drug War vet extol the political expediency of “Breaking the Laws That Are Wrong,” the announced theme of my talk.

Dear High Times, Many of us in the UK (and the rest of the world) find it reassuring that there are voices of sanity on environmental issues in the US [“Winona LaDuke: Citizen Activist,” HT February ’04]. However, it seems clear to us that they won't have much influence while Christian fundamentalists funded by the petrochemical industry are in the White House.

WHOAH! I AM IN A STATE OF SHOCK. Flabbergasted! You hired me!? I was sure it would never happen. Now it’s official. I have received my first check, and although you spelled my name wrong, I was still able to cash it. I write for you! I am your employee!

“WE’RE THE DIY REVOLUTION,” STEPHEN Marshall explains. DIY stands for “do it yourself,” one of the guiding principles of the Guerrilla News Network. Marshall, 33, and his partner, Josh Shore, 29, met with Highwired at a casual bistro in downtown Manhattan to discuss the future of GNN, the multimedia vehicle they co-founded in the summer of 2000.

SYLVIA’S BOYFRIEND WANTED TO KNOW WHY SHE DIDN’T GIVE him more blow jobs. “I wanted to murder him,” said Sylvia, licking cappuccino foam off her finger as she vented to us in a cafe uptown. “He’s lying on the couch, enjoying his day off. I was maniacally planning an undergraduate class for that afternoon and finishing up a paper at the same time.

ONE THING YOU HAVE TO SAY FOR THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION: These are people who understand the power of a picture. Last December's image of Saddam Hussein in American custody, looking like a figure from The Arabian Nights—the cruel Caliph of Baghdad reduced to a beggar-was perhaps a more powerful deterrent to future enemies than all the Tomahawk missiles in the Pentagon's arsenal.

DAVID ENDERS
OCCUPIED BAGHDAD IS A LOT LIKE DETROIT. YOU CAN REPLACE “white flight” and “hollow urban core” with “We leveled heavy sanctions” and “We bombed the hell out of it,” but the results are pretty much the same: lots of empty buildings, a police force you can’t trust and lots of people who take the law into their own hands.

Like most sensible people, I have a problem with Bush. Especially the way his gang sold us the Iraq invasion with lies, misinformation and more lies. Yes, I was against the war. But damn, do I respect the soldiers who are out there in the fields.

J.E. D’ULISSE
ROME—In February 2003, a 17-year-old Italian student was convicted and fined as a “drug dealer” when he was caught with 40 joints on a class trip in Rome. He was acquitted on appeal after explaining that he had purchased them as a member of a smoking group (Italy’s recreational version of a US “cannabis buyers’ club”).

“I WAS IN JAIL FOR SIX MONTHS, AND NINETY percent of my fellow prisoners were ice addicts,” says the Reverend Jonathan Adler. “They were smoking in the jail at three a.m. I came out committed to rehabilitate the ice users and the law.” Adler, of the Religion of Jesus Church, East Hawaii Branch, served time for distributing medical marijuana—a conviction that he is appealing—before the Hawaii state legislature legalized it in June of 2000.

“DOES ANYONE REMEMBER BEING ASKED IF WE wanted our state government to be taken over in this fashion?” the editorial board of the New Hampshire-based Nashua Telegraph wonders rhetorically. The Free State Project’s participants didn’t ask, but they intend to do it anyway.

JOE PAPPALARDO
THERE IS A “THINKING,” KILLING ORGANISM out there that’s reacting to your presence. It’s smart enough to re-form around you and to protect itself from tampering, yet dumb enough to kill anything that stumbles into its path. Welcome to the land-mine-laden battlefield of 21st-century warfare.

YEARS AGO, AT A GRATEFUL DEAD SHOW IN ALBANY, A FRIEND forewarned me that an acid trip could be triggered—sometimes a decade or two later—by the electrochemical reaction of memory. However, what I’m about to describe to you is not an LSD flashback; rather, it is something far more pervasive.

THE REPUBLICAN MEDIA’S $200 MILLION onslaught against John Kerry, beginning with the Matt Drudge-inspired rumors of his infidelities, doctored photos with Jane Fonda and attack ads accusing him of taking tons of corporate money, shooting Botox and looking too French, made me wonder—like many Democrats—if there were any candidates, in this world or the next, who could win against Bush.

TOWERING 43 FLOORS ABOVE THE BUSTLING GARMENT DISTRICT of midtown Manhattan, the penthouse offices of 45-year-old Russell Simmons have a classic appeal. As anyone who has seen Russell and his beautiful wife, Kimora Lee, flashing the family’s bling on MTV’s Cribs knows, Simmons has no problem enjoying the finer things in life.

"Beneath the everyday appearance of life is a deeper world, a mythical dimension that can be visited through the act of making art. In the hands of the artist, the computer can be used to go beyond the illusion of time and space, tapping into the core of being to reveal images from the landscape of the spirit."

CRITICS HAVE ACCUSED THE PERSISTENTLY LEFT-WING, FEMINIST singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco of being a bleeding heart. Her music’s even grislier. The Righteous Babe is so brutally percussive a guitarist that she wraps electrical tape around four fingers of her right hand, from the tip of her plastic glue-on nails to her second knuckle, in order to prevent herself from hemorrhaging all over her guitar.
