The worst thing that medical cannabis prohibition has done in Oklahoma (and drug war at large) was thoroughly corrupted our law enforcement & criminal justice system.
Moody mentioned that: everyday at that courthouse he sees police officers committing felony perjury to sustain misdemeanor marijuana cases. Massive amount of money is involved that police are motivated to lie & the DEA policy is to lie to make the searches good. This has even bled over into the courts where irrational reasoning gets set forth in opinions. About 2 or 3 months ago Oklahoma finally adopted US vs Leon which basically means that if an officer serves a bad warrant in good faith, then his good faith cures that bad warrant. So all they have to do if they want into your home is that 1 officer can swear out a totally false affidavit knowing it to be false & that officer can acquire warrant from a judge & hands that warrant over to another cop who did not know that the affidavit was false. The drug war has gutted us of our freedoms. Now we have militarization of the police: cops no longer serve warrants by politely knocking on the door & they but the door down. To put a stop to this corruption, we must legalize cannabis.
Chad Moody, a practicing criminal defense attorney known for fighting marijuana cases in Oklahoma, is also the republican candidate running for Governor of Oklahoma to beat out incumbent republican Mary Fallin. Primary election is June 24, 2014.

Southern Strategy is alive & well in Oklahoma but in a bizarre form.
- Nationwide voter suppression aimed at black & other minority communities to prevent the nation’s first black president
from winning re-election;
- Reports of Oklahoma purging democrat voters from the voter rolls ;
- White Oklahoma republican legislators pushed for affirmative action to be abolished in the state that is
known for its hatred for a black US President;
- Oklahoma Republicans had this affirmative action question to be placed on the ballot to be voted on in the
presidential election knowing that a black president’s name would also be named on the same ballot;
- Racist vitriol spewed by Oklahoma GOP politicians which fueled hate rhetoric to their constituents at conventions &
political gatherings against a black president;
Then these white republicans in Oklahoma with venomous hatred for this black man in the White House decided to show the depth of it by executing another black man on
Yes, they did this! While black folks in Oklahoma were scrambling to get to the voting polls on ELECTION DAY to vote for a black man to remain as president, the state of Oklahoma was executing another black on the same day. In my opinion this was a twisted message the white republicans of Oklahoma was sending to the black people in the state.
When they say racism is skin deep disease to the bone, they aint lying, cause these white republican politicians in Oklahoma have got it bad. Real bad. How low can they go?
By the way, the blood RED state of Oklahoma at 6:05 pm on November 6, 2012 – ELECTION DAY, executed a mentally ill black man named Garry Allen. At that same time – 6:05 pm, blacks folks were still standing in long lines at voting polls in Carter County & other Oklahoma counties trying desperately to vote for another black man to be re-elected President of the United States & that man’s name is Barack Obama. It was reported that the last words of inmate Garry Allen at the ELECTION DAY EXECUTION was his prediction of an Obama win to the presidency.
The following video was recorded at the Oklahoma Death Penalty Discussion/Session held at the NAACP Oklahoma state convention in Oklahoma City on 11/10/2012.
GOP senate candidate Larry Boggs did a throw-down on Obama & was met w/fierce opposition by Obama supporters at candidate forum in McAlester Oklahoma. Boggs & Obama supporters got into argument when he said Obama, if elected will control guns. And that he, as a NRA member will do what ever he can to get Obama out of office. He & his opponent J Paul Lane were given the question what would they do to protect 2nd amendment rights if Obama was re-elected. He said that Obama would control guns, that when the sparks flew.
Who ever the voter in the crowd that sent that question to the moderator, did Larry Boggs a dis-service. When he got into an argument w/the audience & then got engaged, he c could had lost the election. Even the law enforcement in the audience didn’t look too happy w/ Boggs. In a way I felt bad for Boggs because personally I like him. Yes, I have a soft spot for country boys. But this is politics & its not kool for a politician to engage in hostile exchanges w/the audience. Sorry. However, Lane, on the other hand, was smooth, calm & focused. Lane simply responded that as a military veteran he’s committed to protecting the 2nd amendment rights.
Larry Boggs is the republican nominee seeking election to the Oklahoma Senate District 7 that is being vacated by Richard C. Lerblance (democrat). His opponent is J. Paul Lane, the democratic nominee. Election is November 6, 2012.
This political candidate forum sponsored by McAlester News, in McAlester, Oklahoma. This event was held on Oct 16, 2012 at 6pm at the Kiamichi Center in McAlester. Approximately 200 people attended.
Barney Scott Taylor, a GOP state senate candidate 100% guarantees that if Oklahoma outlaws affirmative action, it will be sued. He said now is not the time for Oklahoma to do away with affirmative action. He brings up the NAACP & ACLU. Taylor says we (Oklahoma) don’t need that. As Taylor considers himself a pragmatist, he pointed out that a pending affirmative action case is before the supreme court (Abigail Fisher vs. University of Texas); & that while he could not answer the question if affirmative action is working because he could not get past the pragmatic part of it. He feels that the whole affirmative action thing could be shot down by the supreme court before the people of Oklahoma can even vote on it.
His view was that it didn’t make any sense for Oklahoma to come up with its own law, while the supreme court case has similar matter still pending. He said that Oklahoma should of waited to see how the supreme court rules on it.
There is a proposed eradication of affirmation action from Oklahoma law that will on voting ballot in the general election – November 2012. It was not until later on that I had learned that a black republican named T.W. Shannon was the 1 who presented this anti-affirmative action initiative.
Barney Taylor is running for Oklahoma state senate district 9, which covers Muskogee & Wagoner county. The election is November 2012.
His opponent, Earl Garrison, a democrat is an incumbent. Garrison was not present at this forum. It was announced that Garrison could not be present due to prior engagement to attend a hall of fame induction of his friend.
