Another one bites the dust
As we warned last week, the Vapor Room and Hopenet medical marijuana dispensaries were the feds' next victims in this crackdown on pot clubs -- and tonight the doors will close.

So here's your chance to grieve.

According to the Vapor Room's Facebook page, the dispensary will shut its doors at 9 p.m. sharp Afterward, friends, family, and fellow tokers are invited to the Otis Lounge to lament another pot club closure in San Francisco.

The Vapor Room Cooperative invites you to celebrate over 8 wonderful years of service to our members, the cannabis community and the City of San Francisco. Though we are forced to close our doors, we do so with heavy hearts and invite you to remember the good times with us. Our legendary lounge is closing at 9pm Tuesday, July 31st. Afterwards, we'll be celebrating and sharing stories with friends, family, colleagues & supporters at Otis Lounge at 10pm.
The two closures tonight will mark the seventh and eighth local pot clubs shut down by U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag in less than a year.

In both cases, landlords got the fatal letter Haag had been mailing to dispensaries, warning them of property seizures and decades-long prison terms if the dispensaries didn't close their doors. The Vapor Room says its Haight Street location is problematic because the feds consider it too close to the Duboce Park playground, and while Martin Olive, Vapor Room's executive director, told SF Weekly that he is "unsure" what path the business will take, HopeNet will go delivery-only starting Aug. 1.

Tomorrow, the Save Safe Access coalition will hold a mock funeral "in response to the outrageous federal assault on medical cannabis patients and providers." The march will begin at 4 p.m. at the corner of Haight and Steiner streets. Followed by a New Orleans-style marching band, protesters will carry faux coffins down Haight Street all the way to the Federal Building on Golden Gate Avenue. There, the coalition members will host a press conference, detailing how these pot club closures are hurting San Franciscans.

According to Safe Access, "San Francisco has been a sanctuary for medical cannabis since 2000. Unfortunately, safe access to medical cannabis is now in jeopardy, unless we take action to save safe access in San Francisco."

See you tonight.

I am going to suggest a couple of things that you might want to think about trying.

 

1.) Close the shop, for the time being

2.) Return the Shop's license to the State, with (affidavit attached) (more on this in a bit) attach a Certificate of Service, sent certified mail, green signature card attached. Copy to the State's Attorney General. Wait till you get the Green cards back from them both. This makes any contract/agreement with the State and their license department "Null and Void"  Done Deal.

 

Now mate, you’re going to do a "Notice and Demand" and Sworn Testimony and Affidavit. This Affidavit will be signed by three (3) witnesses with thumb print. We are dealing with this issue by Administrative remedy privately.

In order to run your shop without a license you have to give the “Powers that Be” Notice this is where you’re Notice and Demand come in. What you want to do is give them fourteen (14) days to respond point-on-point anything that they disagree with.  This Notice and Demand goes something like this:

Dear Sir,

I am writing this letter and notice and demand to resolve any/all issues of opening my shop without a State license or Federal Permit/Permission with your Office. If you disagree with anything stated in my Affidavit, you are requested to answer this affidavit, point-on-point, under the law for perjury for the State of What-Ever, Signed under notary seal and returned to this office no later than fourteen (14) working days of receipt of the Certificate of Service.

Failure or Refusal to respond will stipulate that you agree with all issues contain within the affidavit, furthermore the Affiant has acted in Good Faith and in Honor in addressing these issues with you. You are prohibited from acting on the Affiant or bringing any type of statutory charges against him/her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sworn Testimony and Affidavit of

Billy-Jo: of the Smith Family

My name is Billy-Jo: of the Smith Family, hereinafter “Affiant” I am a Common law man/woman of inherent jurisdiction, Peaceful Inhabitant upon the land of (your state). I am of the age of consent with personal first-hand knowledge of the issues and events and if called to testify I will. Everything stated within this Affidavit is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief, so help me God the Almighty.

I, Affiant state that I am a common law man/woman of inherent jurisdiction, peaceful inhabitant of the State of whatever.I, Affiant state that I have never knowingly given up my Liberties and Rights for Federal or State Privileges and Benefits. I waive any/all Privileges and Benefits, I do not waive my Unalienable Liberties and Rights and secondly my Constitutional Rights under the First Amendment, to include the 4, 5, 6, and 7th Amendments. I, Affiant state that the State and Federal Government, Courts and employees are “Private Contractors” pursuant to the Office of Administrative Hearings, Case no. 10-DOT-7047, therefore have no authority what-so-ever to license my shop.                                              Secondly I am relying on prior decisions of the supreme Court ruling in the following: Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137 “The Constitution of these United States is the supreme law of the land.  Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void of law.”Murdock v. Penn., 319 US 105 “No state shall convert a liberty into a privilege, license it, and attach a fee to it.”Shuttlesworth v. Birmingham, 373 US 262 “If the state converts a liberty into a privilege, the citizen can engage in the right with impunity.”U.S. v. Bishop, 412 US 346 If you have relied on prior decisions of the supreme Court, you have the perfect defense for willfulness. I, Affiant state, that I have the common law right to contract my skills, labor and time as I see fit, not as some “Private Contractor” for the Federal or State Government sees fit.

Mates you get the idea, make your claims and let them rebut them, they can’t and won’t, hell of fellow did an affidavit with just one line that read something like this, “I, Affiant state that I am free to do as I please, as long as I don’t cause a harm, injury or common law trespass upon another living man or woman or have any mischief in my contracts and agreements”  He sent that Affidavit to his local courts, Attorney General, DEA, FBI, CIA and to the President of the United States, certified mail, green card attached. Not one of them answered, he filed it in the Public Record. Last time he had a traffic ticket, he sent that notice and demand to the prosecutor’s office and the case was dismissed.

Prohibition has finally run its course: Our prisons are full, our economy is in ruins, the lives and livelihoods of tens of millions of Americans have been destroyed or severely disrupted, and what was once a shining beacon of liberty and prosperity has become a toxic, repressive, smoldering heap of hypocrisy and a gross affront to fundamental human decency. 

 

Accordingly, it is now the duty of every last one of us to insure that the people who are responsible for this shameful situation are not simply left in peace to enjoy the wealth and status that their despicable actions have, until now, afforded them. Former and present Prohibitionists must not be allowed to remain untainted and untouched from the unconscionable acts that they have viciously committed on their fellow citizens. They have provided us with neither safe communities nor safe streets. We will provide them with neither a safe haven to enjoy their ill-gotten gains nor the liberty to repeat such a similar atrocity! 

 

If you're a bottom-dwelling, scum-sucking, prohibitionist parasite who's career has entailed subjecting the rest of us to off-the-scale corruption and lawlessness, then maybe you should consider moving to somewhere that won't extradite you to a future national or international drug-war tribunal for your crimes against humanity.
