aggregates medical cannabis news from around the world into one easy to
navigate site. In addition they provide unique content from industry
leaders like: Ed Rosenthal, Mamakind, Eddy Lepp, Marc Emery, Mickey
Martin and more. Recently the tone of The Puff's coverage has shifted
from positive news stories about growth and health as well as celebrity
antics to covering this new wave of federal intervention across the
country. This federal intervention is in direct contrast to the "hands
off" approach of states medical programs promised by Obama.

Martin writes, "Even in the midst of a sweeping crackdown, there were
people who said I will start to worry when they start raiding
Oaksterdam. Well, start to worry, because on April 2nd, hundreds of
heavily armed Federal agents stormed the home and businesses of
Oaksterdam founder, Richard Lee. This raid has sent shockwaves
throughout an already terrified medical cannabis industry, and has
brought many to the fateful decision of Fight or Flight."
"Allowing the industry to flourish only to pull the rug out from
underneath the local governments who rely on tax dollars, the employees
depending on high paying jobs and the ill patients who will now be
pushed back into the dark alleys to obtain their much needed medication
has caused a significant and vocal reaction from those within the
movement," Said PuffHost founder Derek Peterson.

In the words of the great Bill Hicks:
"George Bush says 'we are losing the war on drugs'. Well you know
what that implies? There's a war going on, and people on drugs are
winning it! Well what does that tell you about drugs? Some smart,
creative motherf!#@ers on that side."
Yes, Bill...smart, creative motherf!#@ers indeed...
