  1. Robots responding to high command, high command responding to white mans command..What happens when white man says bad command good and good command bad?

  2. Meanwhile, the plant is being legally cultivated in Amsterdam, California and parts of Europe as multinational pharmaceuticals buy shares. By the time we wake up, there will be no more piece of the pie left for the poor African weed farmers on the international market. Thank you DEC for helping Slave Driver to tighten the shackles again.
