Monk’s Herb’n Lounge will be a three-part business including coffee shop, hash bar and internet cafe. These three should be combined with a hotel, making it a one-stop-sPot-to-drop after a night out on the town.

Monk’s Herb’n Lounge would start off with six computers for the Internet cafe, enabled with a user name and password, provided by hostess at the time of check-in. No wifi.

Free internet for hotel residents alone. Clients paying with their credit card will receive extras, such as a wake-n-bake experience, 1TBS sativa type, choice of Super Silver Haze or Jack the Ripper or whatever they choose, brought up on a silver tray in the same manner as room service. The hotel will have a 30 day maximum stay limit. Two people per room rule (one/two occupancy).

Price will include wake-n-bake or cable and Internet.

Each guest will receive a complimentary glass personal pipe with Herb’n Hotel inscribed on it. For each guest staying three days or more, paying by cash, they will be charged $15 for the wake-n-bake, brought up to them on a silver tray by a waiter. Tips are allowed. The guest can ask the hostess for a wake-n-bake call upon check in.

An entire floor would be designated for disabled combat veterans. They would have a conference room in their area, easy handicap accessibility for support meetings where they can smoke and converse and coffee and tea would be provided. Their stay would be priced as half off and they would receive a lot of free stuff, including certificates to come back in at a different time for a wake-n-bake or an afternoon smoke session.

A combined community room and music lounge will play cannabis-friendly movies featuring such actors as James Franco, Cheech and Chong, and other cannabis icons. Music will be pumped through the stereo system loud enough to hear but soft enough to enable conversation. Music will feature Bob Marley, Chief Greenbud, Bob Dylan and other cannabis-friendly musicians.

Also featured in the movie room would be a tribute to Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to honor persons who uplift cannabis including Eddie Bravo and Joe Rogan.

A separate room would offer games, old school arcade games as well as at least one computer where people could play Bejeweled, Zuma, and other mind enriching games.

And finally, a Coptic Christian study lounge where you can receive Gnostic knowledge of text and codexes and also holy oil anointing for believers and followers of The Way of Christ.

A water cooler and paper cups will be provided as well as snack items such as grapes (cuts down on cotton mouth) and fruit cups, delivered to guests by waitresses in a paper cup.

Photos on the wall will honor cannabis legends such as Jack Herer, Herb’n Monk with various people he has had pictures taken with such as Don Duncan, Eddy Lepp, Pony Boy from Los Marijanos, Henry Hemp and his wife January Thomas.

I don’t believe it’s of any surprise that I’m in favor of legalization. My nickname is  Holy Hempress so if no one caught it, they’re really not paying attention. Surely the pictures of CANNABIS were a give-a-way?  Ha, Ha!

 

 

 

 

 

 

WinkIncidentally, I’m not only a FAN of cannabis, I believe it to be my GOD-GIVEN right to smoke it, eat it, turn it into hash oil and/or use it as holy oil and as a direct link, it’s my RESPONSIBILITY to teach and reeducate people who have grown up listening to the rhetoric that has followed it for years.  And no one can tell me different.

God put this plant on earth and it has medicinal purpose just as cocoa leaves, opium and all other things on this earth do. Unfortunately, “man” is an arrogant, egotistical so-and-so and is FOREVER doing stuff to mess up the wonderful things God has given to us for our use (adding man made products to create heroin and crack, for example). 

Eric Holder

 

This morning I came across this petition on Facebook. It should be noted that I am one of those people who’ll cross the street to avoid a confrontation or possible conflict but sometimes one has to roll up their proverbial sleeves and be willing to be counted- even if it has negative results. Hopefully that’s not the case with this one. The petition I am talking about was to order Eric Holder  to order a scientific and medical evaluation on cannabis.

** I would be monumentally grateful if everyone who reads this would consider going to the page and signing this petition.**

 

Screen-Shot-2014-04-02-at-11.45.59-AM-750x668It’s abundantly clear that the majority of American citizens want cannabis legalized. For medical purposes or recreationally, it’s the same thing. Cannabis is medical by definition (as I’ve said in other blogs). The lack of legalization has nothing to do with our safety – or even our children. They’re spending the afternoon at school being bullied, bullying others, seducing and being seduced by other kids and grown teachers, huffing paint and other products. Marijuana should be the least of their concerns- in fact, if they had it, maybe they’d come home and park it for a change instead of going out making stupid decisions with far reaching consequences.

I truly hope that this blog reaches someone and causes them to think. We’re used to being monitored and accept whatever is directed towards us as Gospel. I don’t think that’s particularly healthy. One of the reasons that the P.T.B.’s do NOT want cannabis legal is because cannabis causes us to think and question. If they can keep us in Matrix format, we’re easy to control; if we take the RED pill and pull out of that mentality and realize we’re so much more bigger and smarter and full of possibility than we ever dreamed possible, and that no one can stop us if we set our minds to it, we would be dangerous indeed! We might even change the world for the better!! So let’s smoke a bowl and change the world!!

 

AS ALWAYS…LEGALIZE. REEDUCATE. RECLASSIFY.

April 9, 2014

Once again, tragedy has befallen this nation. This morning, in Pennsylvania, a sixteen year old boy ran down the halls of his school stabbing and slashing people at random with kitchen knives before being subdued by the principal and a police officer.

I wonder how many people heard this news and listened with half an ear; the idea being that they’ve heard so many of these stories so frequently that at this point, it’s like listening to white noise. As easy as it is to say that one should avoid doing that, in the same way that television can desensitize one to the horrors of violence in real life, so can tragedy after tragedy after tragedy. I live in Colorado, in Colorado Springs.

The most logical question is what are we going to do about this? Are we going to figure out what the problem is and take corrective measures to stop them? Is there anything that we can do or has it gone too far? I have my own views; I’m curious about other’s views.

I’m tired of this. I’m tired of our children being unsafe going to school. But keep them home and risk losing your children if you’re not able to home school them. Maybe it’s time to “School Pool” and see if that works. Why not? Instead of a parents going around picking up kids to take and drop off at school, they can have the kids come to their home and teach them from  home. We’re in the digital age, people!! Use the technology. Skype is available. Google has it’s own rendition of Skype. I’m sure that other places do as well. That way, the kids are safe(r), accountability is there because all the parents know exactly where their children are and the children get an education. Yes, there would have to be background checks and whatnot but if one has done nothing wrong, they have nothing to worry about, right? Just a thought that popped into my head.

Our children are our future; that’s what we tell them; it’s what we tell each other but is it true? Do we stand a chance if we get a hold of our kids now and take proactive steps? Are we willing and ready to take drastic steps to make sure our children are safe and secure? I say we try it; what are we going to do? Save lives??!!

Let’s turn THIS:

Why has 121007102949-obama-swing-story-top become such a convenient

rifle-target

 

for everything that has ever happened, to hear people tell it. If it’s cloudy today, it’s probably because Obama sneezed last Tuesday at 6 p.m. and if it rained yesterday it’s because he forgot to drink coffee on the morning of September 11, 2001 and that’s what caused the planes to fly into the towers. Sound ludicrous? Yeah, that’s how blaming him sounds to me- stupid, idiotic and racist as hell.
George-W-Bush_2234660bWhen Bush got us in to a war that has cost thousands of lives, billions of dollars between the cost of war, the lives lost, the soldiers returned all messed up with physical and mental issues that will last for the rest of their lives and  and  no one said shit and at the beginning were totally on board with him because he PLAYED on people’s ANGER and HORROR of all those lives lost in the  towers. He convinced us of who the enemy was, made up some shit and we, typical SHEEPLE that we are, stood by and let him, believing that if we didn’t do something they’d be “baaaa-ck” to finish the job. We swallowed everything that the media fed us (Fox news is not the only news that is totally and completely biased in whatever direction they want to go) and didn’t bother to take the time to study to make sure what they fed us wasn’t’ poisoned to the core. Even worse, we haven’t said a word against this man – we’re too busy acting like Obama is the anti-Christ (and most don’t even BELIEVE in the anti-Christ!)

I am not going to lie or try to be something that I’m not. I love my president and although I do not agree with everything he stands for or is doing, I see him as the best way to move forward and not be stuck in the middle ages when it comes to what the poor can do in this country (the rich have money which means they can buy anything- including a trip out of this country if it came to that) – the poor (and there’s hardly a middle class anymore so that would encompass anyone not in the “1 %”. He brought us out of the recession, regardless of the fact that the devil Boehner was attempting to block his every move. Idiots like Rush Limbaugh running their mouths, saying they  ‘Hoped he’d fail” and all this crap. Well, he DIDN’T fail, you dick and he’s light years ahead of your drug addicted ass, so why don’t you go somewhere and read up on what being a “true American” is all about (because unless you have Native American blood flowing through your veins, you can’t even MAKE that claim) and even if you DID/DO, common courtesy dictates you give the man a chance.  You want to see what we are teaching our children (and it’s patent bull****!)? This is what I found on Google Images today: Thanks-Obama-65978128205

Really? This is the kind of message we want to leave our kids with? Remember this is an actual child that someone is not-too-subtly indoctrinated!

I really wish people would hop off  the “Obamacare” bandwagon. It’s NOT “Obama Care”, it’s Affordable Care and if a person has to have a drivers license to drive a car, they should have a medical card of some kind because everyone gets sick sometimes. Some get sick and stay that way for life. This isn’t a safe world we live in. Did you think it was going to just smooth itself out, this care act? When did anything ever work that well, first time into it? Of course there were  hiccups in the system, and I believe that there were additional threats as well: people manipulating the system, the databases, the website, etc. Instead of getting angry at Obama for thinking about the little guy, why don’t we get pissed at the employers who refuse to work with the system – who are so worried about towing the company line and that profit margin that they won’t pay their employees a decent friggen wage? Far as I can see, President Obama is the only president since Carter who’s even recognized that the poor exist- and are getting a really raw deal!

Listen, I recognize people’s rights to have an opinion in the country. Maybe you approve of the job the president is doing; maybe you don’t. The point of this blog is NOT to convince you. Few know better than I that shoving one belief down another’s throat is useful as teats on a bull.

I have been working on this blog for days. As always, when wading into unfamiliar territory, I am afraid to say the wrong thing or convey a message to people who don’t agree and might have something to say. For once, I hope so.

See you all soon!! Have a fabulous day and remember where you come from; never forget!!

My beautiful picture Alright
, enough is enough, already! This “medical” crap in regard to Marijuana is totally redundant and we’re far enough advanced so that we can drop that part! Why? Because MARIJUANA IS MEDICAL BY DEFINITION – an HERB, folks!! It’s like calling it “medical surgery”…uh, do I have to explain that?  ;-) 

 I don’t come by this thought lightly. It’s been called “Medical Marijuana” for a really long time (even though it was redundant) and I don’t want to change the ENTIRE climate- only the stigma that surrounds it, which is completely uncalled for.

 I’m sure it comes as no surprise that the climate concerning marijuana is changing – fast. Yahoo is a fabulous site for getting much of your marijuana news so I’m going to plug them here – you guys seriously rock!!! Today’s link(s) include:

Common SenseThis is such common sense! I don’t know WHY people have to be told some things.  Don’t be stupid – be smart; you only make it hard on everyone else who IS responsible! This goes just as strongly for those who work and smoke. It’s partly BECAUSE people show up at work high that laws have been implemented demanding piss-tests for perspective employees making it so honest people (like me) have to choose between cheating in order to get hired anywhere and going jobless and broke, dependent on the system (the other part is the government and the state are bullies and that’s not your fault, it just is what it is). 

My beautiful picture

We’ve come a long way in the fight to legalize marijuana but we have a long, long way to go before it’s where it should have been this entire time. Too many people are unaware of this because they are pot-heads, completely unaware of the impact that legalizing cannabis can and will and should have on this country – and even this world. They’re too busy getting high with no regard as to this subject’s true importance. Others, my husband, Raphael AKA The  Herb’n Monk (pictured to the left) and myself as a far more recent “convert”  would be on the “connoisseur” side of this amazing plant. There are millions of us, I would think it’d be safe to say. We are the ones who are posting to Facebook (and other social sites, including here at WordPress) about it every day, letting others know about the economic, recreational and medical side, starting conversations among fellow-tokers and non-tokers going towards the end (goal) of (and this is huge for me- check out my website at http://www.hijoyhameed.webs.com/) reeducation, for there is no more important subject going on, RIGHT NOW, than this, though folks at the NRA, Women’s Rights issues, Military, etc., would undoubtedly disagree as the full legalization, decriminalization and declassification of cannabis would affect all those programs a great deal. Why? Because cannabis leads to PEACE and PEACE leans to  NON wars and NON violence and peace doesn’t make money like war does. Capitalism is a double edged sword.

courses-_wordle2You know, as I sit here, highly medicated and thinkin’, it occurs to me that a world fueled by non-toxins cannabis use could (potentially) lead to a society that can work and live in the same area, disagreeing with each on occasion but a total lack of (negative) ego, leading towards peace because people understand that they are differences -in looks, race, ethnic backgrounds, etc., and that there’s nothing wrong with those differences, instead of our perceiving others thoughts, actions, decisions and opinions to be personal attacks against us. As a result, there is more equality because everyone is recognized as existing, not just a few deemed “special” (for example an actress would have the same level of importance, throughout society, as a factory worker would because both fulfill a role, both are evenly and decently paid and no one is thought of as more important than the other.

By contrast, a society fueled by toxins, such as alcohol, would lead to, well, a world like the one we live in. And this issue doesn’t just get laid at the feet of capitalism either. The end result is the opposite of the above mentioned. Very little positive comes of it that involves everyone. Sure, some get wealthy, but that affects only so many; the rest suffering means nothing to anyone other than themselves.

In closingand closing I must, let me post this thing I just made. It’s something to think about and contemplate: I recommend a good sativa if at all possible!

What would this world look like

 

 

 

Carving a Spot for Me

The Burning BushAre you looking for a job? Have you tried everything you could to bring honor to your family, to keep them housed and clothed and still can’t accomplish your intent? If so, then you know where I stand!

Months ago, when cannabis was legalized here in Colorado, purportedly “like alcohol and tobacco”, most everyone (in favor) was super pumped, including me. Thoughts of being able to find employment in the business; Dreams of finally being able to work without having a pass a drug test (for those who do nothing but smoke/eat cannabis); Being allowed to cross the street to get our cannabis – all dreams that fall so short of reality.

I was so blind! Why I let my guard down is beyond me; guess I’m just a glass-half-full kind of person. Despite a lifetime of experience to the contrary, I still expect things to work out in the end. I still expect people to get up and fight for what they believe in. When it comes to the cannabis issue, I thought that maybe for once, we could count on our governing body to do what’s right with regard to cannabis use. Unfortunately, as the Herb’n Monk says, it’s more illegal now than it was before it was legalized!! How, you ask? Before, there was only one reason for it being legalized- medicinal use – so the criteria of it being legal was much simpler and easily defined. Now that it’s been “legalized”, there are a hundred ways around that because of the politics involved. The medical and liquor industries don’t want the competition. This section of the state wants to open recreational shops – that one doesn’t.

Back in 2011 I was working at the Huntington Hotel in Los Angeles. I’d been there nearly 3 years- the longest position I had or have ever held in one  position. The economy stunk- if you remember, 2011 was in the latter parts of the recession. The hotel closed down; all the tenants were displaced and we (my family and I) were given $5,000 to relocate (by law we were supposed to receive more but they said take it or leave with nothing so what were we supposed to do?). We bought a cheap car and went north to Chico, also in California. For more than a year, we tried to obtain employment, fulfilled all the requirements for being on public assistance and despite being homeless, though temporarily housed at a shelter, stuck together as a family and worked to make life better for ourselves and our son.

After more moving around, we finally settled in Colorado Springs. We just HAD to land in the most “conservative” section of Colorado (El Paso County)- isn’t that a pip!!?

Following a year of working as a volunteer at Overcomers International Ministry, I decided to leave and seek other opportunities. But what opportunities? Unless you know someone, getting into “the industry” is impossible.  I went to Denver for the Canna Ready Job Fair and it was soooo much fun! Marijuana JobsI picked up the information about obtaining my badge and after looking at it, am not even sure I’ll be able to obtain it as I have defaulted student loans. That’t not going to stop me from working on it because I need to be involved – somehow – even if it’s just (unofficially) writing about it. That’s not good enough for me, though. I want to sit down and write my books-in-progress but need to have backup capital to do so. I need a job of some kind. I have a family to support, like thousands of other people who are cannabis enthusiasts. I need a friend in the industry; I need help.

I will continue to seek employment opportunities. I haven’t decided yet on whether or not I am going to just fully detox, get a job and resume my smoking habits…I just don’t know at this point in time. What SHOULD I do? No idea. What CAN I do? Say “Screw principal” and just go ahead and detox (which won’t be pretty because I smoke to offset the PTSD that I deal with on a regular basis).

I WILL say that I’m honored to be among so many others who can’t get – or are fired from – jobs because they’re choosing cannabis over alcohol. Despite what others say, this IS a discrimination issue. According to http://www.dictionary.com, discrimination is defined as

“treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, 

a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs 

rather than on individual merit:racial and religious intolerance and discrimination.

You notice this says nothing as to it’s legality or illegality; that’s because laws change to reflect the will of the people (most of whom want cannabis legalized) but those who make, write and carry out those laws aren’t moving at the speed of progress so in effect, it’s like the leanings towards legalization is DSL Speed and the lawmakers are still on Dial-up.

Something needs to be done to improve this. What, I don’t know! I wish I did; I wish I had the capital and resources to make a dent in this issue. My whole life revolves around “hurry up and wait” as they say. Battling depression is so much bigger a job than just not keeping a smile on one’s face…depression has SIDE EFFECTS like lack of sleep, weight gain or loss, depending on the person (mine is weight GAIN), headaches, pain for no reason, exhaustion, lack of energy, high blood pressure…the list could go on and on.

In spite of my physical and emotional health, I have work to do. I don’t have time to sit around and feel sorry for myself. I need to make progress. Keeping God in the loop, trusting him to open doors is imperative <to me> as well. If not for him, I wouldn’t even exist so obviously he’s not going to be on the sidelines. I need HIM to open doors. I’m trusting him to get me through my search and to make himself clear to me because for the last couple of months I have been learning some things that have left me horribly unsettled and that’s not helping me either but one mustn’t be afraid to set aside comfort for the pursuit of truth and I’m there, brother, I’m ALL THE WAY there, now!! I will be very relieved when I get to a place where peace is my mainstay once more.

Alrighty then, time to wrap this up- have been trying to post it for 4 days. It’s been amazing  getting this out of my system. Writing, for me, is so therapeutic!!  It helps to simplify things in my head. God bless you. Puff Puff Pass, brothers and sisters!!

Hello, everyone!! I wanted to introduce myself (properly) to you all, person to person, so to speak. The little guy is Ishaq, my five-year-old son. He’s amazing but five…and amazing and…FIVE! ROFL Darling, isn’t he?

PPP and spread the news: cannabis is essential, it is wonderful and it is going to pull the United States out of debt and step the rising tide of violence if enough people will lift their voices and stop acting like “sheeple”. The Creator gave us ALL brain matter and it’s far past time to start using it and exercising our rights as Unites States of America.
