    Sure, hold an expo yourself, just can't be called the Treating Yourself Expo.

    Treating Yourself Expo is bankrupt and is going to be gone same as the magazine too. Marco retains ownership of the name, so any attempt to use it without his permission would most likely result in a lawsuit. I have permission to keep the forum going, and possibly bring back the magazine as an online publication.

    Got it now. Thanks. Perhaps one of the other compassion club owners with money will step up and hold it under a different name.

    Things could be so sweet, if all the North American bureaucratic idiots & fools would only get up off their lazy chicken shit asses and fight for the rights of their constituents to vote; then prohibition could be voted out of existence forever, shot down in flames by the voice of the people. We could then unite in such a way which would help publications like TY to be in great demand, and available thru out the entire continent. We could also put an end to the Mexican border violence with one big vote! Getting high is not a crime; the sword of truth must be wielded to win our freedom & to regain our birth right to safe access. I hope Anslinger & Hearst are rotting together, side by side for all the unnecessary hell they've caused.

    Ansligner was well aware that he was a tool, and a dirty one at that.

    He stepped out of his car to look at a field of hemp, just regular ole fibre hemp, and lamented that it was his job to battle a plant.. a weedy one at that which made thousands of seeds and grew to the size of a decades-old tree in only a few months.

    He dealt morphine to one of his friends while trying to lock up people he did not happen to know personally - his excuse was that "the communists might discover the addiction and use it to blackmail" the individual. And so he decided to supply a controlled narcotic while yelling "Oogah boogah.. Communism...sharing is evil!".

    You can still watch interviews with Hypocrite Harold, chain smoking away and not looking at the camera with his guilty-puppy look so common with those who know they have such a flimsy and transparent lie to tell, but it's their job to spread the fertilizer. Talking about addiction while being hooked on Nicotine, the #1 most addictive drug we've ever found.

    One such interview has a bit of historical humour from McCarthyism/Jingoism. He insists that there is a Chinese conspiracy to flood the US with narcotics, given that Harry was apparently not qualified to identify a narcotic from sidewalk chalk it may have simply been rice. The interviewer interrupts him to say "You mean RED China." to which he agrees. I just tend to find a great deal of comedy in the paranoia and colour schemes when you have a Republican, the Red party, trying to scare people by talking about Red countries.

    History has proven that prohibition entices kids to partake; it's the thrill of going against the grain, and also the establishment that drove me to do things which I never would've done otherwise. If it was legal, it wasn't nearly as fun to the gang; we prided ourselves in being called freaks

So I paid a fee to have the money order tracked, to try and get it back, and just found out today that the people at Treating Yourself HAD cashed it, August 20th. So they blatently lied that they hadn't, and never sent anything for the money they took.

    So pissed right now, that seems like fraud, and I'll probably be submitting complaints to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center. Total bs

    Just reading through this thread reminds me of our first Cannabis Cup in T.O.(thanks Doc.) Out on a boat in the middle of Lake Ontario. Great meal, some fab folks to hang with an chat an burn.
    The local constabulary sent cruisers out into the lake to watch what we were doing, and of course were waiting at the dock when we got back.
    You've never seen so many dropped bags as people offloaded as they were getting offf the boat.
    The good part is, nobody was nabbed, from my recollection, and I have to think the officers waiting were just there to "clean up" after us

    Lol..

    Y'know, that's to these grand ole intarwebs I happen to be an ordained minister.

    I would have suggested a quick disposal of all greenery in hydrochloric acid - the human stomach is a good producer of such HCl - followed by an improptu prayer meeting to bless the good men and women of the Toronto Police forces in their dangerous jobs protecting us from ourselves

    I'd even go so far as to do a rough calculation as to how much money was spent on the little parade chasing after imagined non-crimes.

    I'm sure these particular guys do high-risk weapons raids daily and go after cartels and stuff, right....right?

    Guys?

    Default lots have changed since the begining

    I have been buying issues of ty dot com magazine when I would see a new one released. I would pick them up at my local barnes and noble..... I have been searching for a new issue for quite some time and have just learned that they aren't publishing anymore.... that is really sad as there was a lot of really good information and I really enjoyed them.
    they would actually sell out of copies in my area....I will keep my eyes open for a online addition xfingersx'd
    Once in a while you will get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    SOB! I haven't been very active here in awhile and just learned the magazine is no longer a viable entity. I read elsewhere it went broke and came back here and damn it is true. I actually had some extra fun coupons and wanted to buy a year of hard copy. Damn shame. At least I got one Tee shirt and a magazine from Michelle Rainey for writing a letter to a PM on the laws and mandatory prison sentences being wrong before her cancer got to the point that it took her away from us. She may be gone, the magazine may be gone, but I am still in her army...And she does have troops in the USA.

    That was pretty unfortunate, although it was a last minute thing, it could of been handled much better. Now the forum is run and maintained by our members.

    Its too bad. I supported this for many years. I never complained about being mislead and cheated out of many things we should have gotten. They stole our money last year and never offered any support. It was bound to happen when they lie and steal. I will not miss it as it was all going in the wrong direction. Somebody will pick the pieces and carry on, hopefully.
