As the GW spokesman puts it, “It’s a pharmaceutical solution, formulated with the ability to deliver a precise dose and with stringent standards of quality, safety and efficacy”.

Millions were spent, possibly billions, on how to dismantle the 99% protests and once again the tiny one pub village Nimbin showed the way. In fact our local Undacuva initiatives have been nominated for TOY, Tactics Of the Year, again. It was so simple you probably wont get it.

The first blockade is a sandfly dustbowl thirty k’s into the middle of nowhere. Hippy drug free protest camps I know well from other jobs so I hitch on to the “move on order” camp near the beach. The hash opens doors like a skeleton key and I can soon sort out who’s who and what’s going on.

The Dalai came to me in a dream saying if he had to come back again he wanted to be reborn on a hippy commune. “Like the ones you’ve been telling me about. In a forest community in that huge land of yours with so few people”, he said. “Rough times are approaching, find me an appropriate hippy earth mother who likes meditating.” Why is he always laughing and happy I kept thinking, even as he was asking me.

The Unda Brass, drinking vodka in the airport lounge and dressed like fat rich tourists from Florida, were waiting for me when I flew in from Washington, and we have agreed to disagree. I’d been asleep for 8 deep hours thanks to the LA Dispensary lollies and they took me by surprise, but we soon undastood each other. I know too much and so do they. I get to keep the fortnightly cheques (which Pipe claims as the Tribes now!) but they leave me alone in exchange for “certain favors”. Like where the good weed is, and any new big movers. Little chance of that in the land of unorganised crime I said but that’s just what fascinates them.
