BEWARE–Counterfeit money circulating in Bowling Green

Image may contain: 1 person

Below is a memo forwarded to me for posting which outlines the issue of someone who is unaware passing counterfeit currency.  Totally unaware of the fact that it was a counterfeit bill – How would someone tell?  People don’t normally carry markers to check for bad bills in their pockets!  They were having a yard sale and was taken advantage of both monetarily with the counterfeit bill and as well lost a set of tires which they “sold” to this person.  The person responsible for the counterfeit is the person who prints it and KNOWINGLY passes it. 

They have both been advised to claim “no mens rea” when they go to Court in November.  It will remain to be seen how this turns out.

In the meantime, be aware that this can happen to anyone!  Be careful who you accept cash from and maybe we all should buy a counterfeit banknote detection pen, to carry in our pockets at all time, because this is what it has come down to! 

The paragraphs below come from Gordon Joseph and Mary Thomas Spears, who are the ones suffering this incident.  I’m sure others have as well. 


Mary Thomas-Spears Joseph and myself, just got out of the Warren County Regional Jail were we spent the last two nights.

They arrested both of us for supposedly trying to pass a Counterfeit or Forged Instrument.


A Blonde Headed Man in his 30’s, looks and acts younger. I tried to guess his age. He told me mid 30’s. That might also be a lie. He made a couple of trips before returning with his much older girlfriend to make a big purchase. Feeling us out I guess! They came to our yard sale at about sun set, bought a set of car tires and some motor cycle parts. Paid us with 100$ Cash.

My wife noticed the bill looked like it had been in the washer and said, that money looks like it’s been washed. He said, my boss just gave it to me. She looked at it once more and stuck it in her pocket. She has open angle glaucoma and is going blind so she thought no more of it until after we were Arrested for trying to break it for change to pay a friend we owed!

Our friend who we tried to pay didn’t have change and it was after 10pm so he suggested we go to EZ Money Liquor Store and buy something. I thought I could get change without a purchase because we already had cigarettes and we don’t drink but the guy behind the counter said we had to purchase something so I asked for a lemon aid. ..

At which point I go to pay to get change and dude accuses me of trying to pass Counterfeit money and tells me I can leave before he calls the Police…At which point, I want him to show my wife and explain it to her because we were also robbed of 100$ in car tires and motorcycle parts.

I also told him, if I were the slightest bit guilty I might have left. He keeps accusing us of trying to get one over on him while talking to police.

Police then arrest both my wife and I after refusing to call our eye witnesses or let me call the dude who passed us the bill who had been texting us for days about items. Even after reading the text he had sent us.

They really could care less about doing their jobs or investigating anything (We were informed that’s done by their detectives at some point) Right?

We were the ones robbed by the guy that bought 100$ worth of stuff at our yard sale and passed us a fake bill. How was we supposed to know it was fake? It was after dark and was a pretty damn good fake. See image above…

That the man accusing us let us take?

If he really believed we were trying to get one over on him, why let us take this image? Of course he didn’t want his face advertised as the jerk who then lied to Police. Telling Police that we both tried to pass it.

Anyway, my wife the Marijuana Activist is one of the main reasons Marijuana is a minor offense in Kentucky today, and she was carrying about 6 grams of her medical cannabis when they searched her and her truck.   There were some “roaches” which contained White Sage (a Native American Remedy) for her Lungs.

The result was, they = Police kept calling it synthetic marijuana. When it is not at all!

Doesn’t matter! They charged her with Possession of Synthetic Marijuana and Marijuana and possession or trying to pass a Forged Instrument.

She wasn’t even in the store when I tried to buy the lemon aid or get change.

My wife who suffers from a very rare nervous system disease called SMS or Stiff Mans Syndrome then was incarcerated without her medication, which they had confiscated and had charged her with, was then placed in a detox cell to be detoxed for pot!
Which is not toxic and can’t intoxicated, so you can’t detox!

THEY DID HOWEVER DENY A MARIJUANA PATIENT her much needed Medication. That was documented in that jail where she has nearly died more than once from the severe abuse and extreme medical neglect she has suffered at the hands of the Officials who run or work at that Facility.

The result was, between the medical neglect of her non stop vomiting, wetting and defecating herself for most of the past 3 days,  not being able to eat or maintain what she could eat, combined with the cold of the detox cell and the stress of being accused of a Crime one didn’t commit combined with her severe PTSD and memories or flashbacks from previous incarceration’s in which she has been beaten, tortured and raped by employees of that facility who were once again making torturous threats and again neglecting her medically, she was and is very ill.

We finally got our day in Court after she/we was denied yesterday because she couldn’t stop vomiting.

Our rights were denied the entire time and we never received our one phone call.

We were released today on our own recognizances and we both have Court dates for November.  We have been charged with a Felony.  Which is a violation of my current Probation.

Please pray and share for support!

Opinions:  “Pot should stay illegal in Kentucky”

From:  Rev. Mary L. Thomas-Spears, Bowling Green, Kentucky  42101

Dear “Pot should stay illegal in Kentucky”,

That was all like a bad scene straight out of Reefer Madness, or the equivalent of BS propaganda.  Yet all very well said for a pot dealer???!

I couldn’t help but notice you did not bother to take the time to sign your name or to take any credit for that medieval excrement – Your opinion which you felt so valuable.  It would cut into your profit margin if you had to suddenly become legitimate, wouldn’t it?

If Marijuana/Pot/Cannabis Prohibition was repealed in Kentucky and/or the U.S. it would put the pot dealer in the Black Market out of business and you wouldn’t be working for the FDA’s DEA anymore.

After all, Congress was only given authority over Currency, Foreign War and the market place, which is why they created “Prohibition”, to control and divide the market place, in order to maximize their profit margins, through supply and demand, and the Black Market they claim to be fighting against while in essence owning it.  So you work for them, right?

Opinions like yours are in fact, proof, that “opinions are like a$$holes…   They are undeniable evidence of the disgusting amount of (or level of) illiteracy and mis-education, or as Dr. Gupta put it, “brainwashing”, on the highest levels, within and outside of the Commonwealth, in my opinion.

We can thank William Randolf Hearst and his desire to print the news on wooden paper, as he owned millions of acres of trees for creating the propaganda and printing it on to begin with, and all these years later, despite all the published facts, research, science and truth to the contrary of this Marijuana Madness propaganda, we can thank you for attempting to continue the BS.

After all, up until then all of our news was printed on Hemp (= Cannabis Sativa L = Marijuana).

I am sure if my friend, colleague, mentor and Attorney, Gatewood Galbraith were here today in the flesh he would agree with me on everything I have said or will say.  While adding a few colorful comments or opinions of his own, of course,  like,

“I wish all you would stop getting high long enough to read my book!”  “I’d even give you a free copy so that you might educate yourselves on the fact that Marijuana is already legal, as I explained to Greg Stumbo!”

It all comes down to understanding the words and their legal meanings, the Constitution and your Rights and Freedoms along with precedence of Rulings handed down by the Supreme Court like Leary vs. The United States,  as I explained in “Last Free Man in America meets the synthetic subversions”.

In his book he also explains that ending Marijuana Prohibition in Kentucky would save the Commonwealth approximately $500 Million Dollars and year, just in healthcare and related costs alone.

The actual figures coming in from other States who have already passed similar laws are in fact very favorable as well as being in support of Gatewood’s estimate or prediction.

Gatewood Galbraith also explains in his book that Marijuana, like Ibogaine (which is also prohibited in the U.S.), is known to, in fact, break addiction.  Evidence that Y(our) Government is not against addiction or are not fighting addiction as them claim they are.

After all, the market place functions on supply and demand and addiction fuels or increases the demand, therefore increasing the profits.  This is why they have prohibited both of these plants in the U.S.  As former President Bush said without a flinch “We are a Nation addicted to gasoline”.  So why haven’t they prohibited possession of gasoline?  After all, how many have died throughout the last year alone huffing it or consuming it?  Or as a result of crashes?

Yet, it is a controlled substance like Marijuana, controlled through taxation, which recognizes the substance as legal and through the Tax with which it is controlled under (= 1937 Marijuana Tax Act), did just that (legalize), despite it having been repealed by Leary v. United States, in the Supreme Court, on the Federal level, in a ruling that agreed that He (= We, have a divine, inalienable, sovereign, natural right and freedom to utilize Marijuana), (Marijuana = Cannabis Sativa L “untaxed”).

The Commonwealth of Kentucky has passed its own Marijuana Tax Stamp Laws – Legalizing thru taxation.

WHY??? Why would people of any State pass a law, or vote in a law to pay the State or a Commonwealth to tax them for a right or freedom that has already been granted to them by not only Divine authority but by the highest Court in the land on the highest level?  While basically declaring themselves as Federal informants to a Government who has already abused it’s power and authority by passing not one, but two illegal and unconstitutional Acts of Congress (= the CSA or Controlled Substance Act).

All of this is a part of the “Synthetic Subversion” or war on plants and nature (not just Marijuana), as Corporations like Monsanto and Dupont scramble to own ALL OF THE SEED through Patents and GMO’s (genetically modified organism).

For all of those who still believe that Marijuana (= Cannabis Sativa L) was only prohibited because they couldn’t Patent the plant – Your wrong!  You have forgotten about the Corn, Soy Beans, and Wheat as well as all the farm’s and Farmer’s who have been lost to Lawsuits and suicides connected to “who is growing who’s seed in who’s fields throughout the U.S. and Canada.

The main reason for prohibition is all the legal lies (= Legalization)which openly mandates and sanctions their authority to prohibit in the first place, allowing them to Patent and own all the rights, while controlling the market place, which they now own, or rule, therefore controlling all of the profits while also allowing them to control the nature of the plant.

Keep in mind, THC is the active part of the plant that causes a plant to be labeled as Marijuana, which is also the natural sunscreen of any Cannabis Sativa L plant.

HEMP, which starts out as Cannabis Sativa L in the wild, has now been legally defined by the amount of THC it contains (or doesn’t contain).  This seed can now be controlled with a THC stopper gene, via GMO and we can promise that an entire crop growing in any field, no matter how much sunlight it receives, will, for that season, remain HEMP in the field, no matter where the field is, thus, controlling the harvest.   (In nature, the amount of Sunlight a plant receives determines the amount of THC in any given Cannabis Sativa L plant).

Keep in mind, Cannabis Sativa L., blows in the wind like corn when it pollinates.

By moving all of the Marijuana grows indoors, these same chemical Companies and Corporations that have prohibited Cannabis/Marijuana in the first place through the lobby of Congress, are the same ones that supply big Pharma, are the same ones that make chemical weapons for war, are the same ones controlling our crops and food supply, and can NOW not only control all the seed, they can sell you chemical fertilizers and growing equipment for medical Cannabis, for just long enough to gain all the information they need to take over the medical use of Cannabis.

Look at Canada.  Where medical patients have lost all their growing rights, while waiting in lines and waiting for “approval” for medicine that they cannot afford to buy from the Corporate growers!

First:  Cannabis is already legal, as I have pointed out,

Second:  Prohibition is the problem,

Thirdly:  REPEAL is the only legal answer to end prohibition of Cannabis that is morally correct.

Fourth:  the gateway drug theory is a lie and has been disproven and  has been dispelled by the National Academy of Science over a decade ago in the 1999 report published by the National Academy Press, “Marijuana: Assessing the Science Base“, which stated plainly when examining this question or theory that, if there are any gateway drugs leading to addiction they would be sugar, nicotine and alcohol.  Notice that Marijuana is not at the top of their list of gateway drugs for addiction, and that sugar is not on the Controlled Substance list despite all the disease, illness, and death it causes, not including the addiction.

There has never been a death caused by Marijuana consumption or overdose unless it was a result of it being prohibited (= being shot by a Cop)…  Please find me ONE, I challenge you!

Cannabis Sativa L. (= Marijuana Cannabis/Hemp) is a FOOD first.  It has been proven that we are all Endocannabinoid based life forms, and that Endocannabinoids are passed from Mother to Child in the Breast Milk.

However, this food has been prohibited from our gardens since basically 1937, while disease and illness caused by malnutrition grows out of control.  Yet, the FDA wants YOU to believe that this food is a DRUG.

Well, so is bottled water, so do you want to see a Doctor for a prescription to buy bottled water?

I hear that my friend, Senator Perry Clark, has introduced a new bill that will repeal prohibition of Marijuana in Kentucky.  I have not read the Kentucky “Cannabis Freedom ActBill thoroughly yet.  If Sen. Perry Clark has asked to repeal Cannabis prohibition in Kentucky then he deserves our full support!  Our State Representatives need to step up and do what we have paid them to do and additionally introduce KCHHI (Kentucky Cannabis Hemp Health Initiative) as a companion Bill alongside Sen. Perry Clark’s Bill and PROTECT the People of this State!

Both would REPEAL Cannabis prohibition in Kentucky.

Wake up!  Educate yourselves on the entire truth of how it all does affect you, no matter who you are or what you think you know or believe.  This is the twenty-first Century, the “Information Age”!
