...hello. My name is Peter McWilliams. I am 50 years old. I am a writer, publisher, and photographer. I am an AIDS and cancer patient. I am facing a mandatory-minimum 10-year sentence in federal prison (possibly life) and, oh yes, a $4 million fine. The trial is set to start November 16, 1999. My crime? Treating my illnesses with medical marijuana. I also gave an advance to an author to write a book How to Grow Medical Marijuana. In the government's eyes, that made me a drug kingpin - the infamous head of the medicine cartel

...you died a casualty in the war on drugs. The battle was over medical marijuana. Voters in your own home state of California agreed with you that marijuana should be legal for medical purposes.

in late May the Turkmenistan Ministry of Communication unexpectedly revoked the licenses of all private Internet providers. The official reason given for the revocation of licenses was that providers had falsified information in mandatory reports to the ministry about the technical and structural details of their services. In reality, the ministry did not conduct any sort of verification or investigation of these reports, and the revocation is merely an arbitrary action by a state agency intended to destroy overly successful competitors to the lagging state Internet provider
