Steve Elliot, editor of the online publication Toke of the Town, uses his journalistic might to wage an all-out war on cannabis patients and activists in a megalomaniacal tirade over a benign comment on Facebook about his and Warren Edson’s behavior since the release of comments about the medical marijuana industry made by Allen St. Pierre of NORML last month.
Steve Elliot, head of psychological black ops at Toke of the Town, started this over the one of the victims Facebook wall post that stated the target of this attack is working a table at the Denver Cannabis Cup, which his partner in this crime, Warren Edson, took over with spam. Warren Edson decided to use this as an opportunity to spread the hate and angst he feels over Allen St. Pierre’s previous and unrelated comments.
Steve Elliot’s, chief inquisitor at Toke of the Town, partner in this insidious debacle Warren Edson posted for well over an hour, verging on two, in an attempt to start an argument over NOMRLs participation in the cup. The prey made few remarks one of which included a remark about Edison’s and Elliot’s actions are doing more harm to the movement than the DOJ could
Steve Elliot went so far as to photo edit the comment string to only include the sufferers post and Steve Elliot’s hate speech, leaving out his partner in this crime, Warren Edson’s, incendiary comments that went on endlessly and had nothing to do with the targets original posting about working a table at the High Times Cannabis Cup. I am inclined to agree with the comment about these two in light of this psychotic outburst and ego driven diatribe, which, is over the opinion expressed in the comment made by the victim. Again, the individual attacked and Steve Elliot’s comments where the only ones added to falsified graphic which intentionally excluded any relevant context. The fallacious image that Elliot posted to his personal wall and to other Facebook walls, by him, was a clear attempt to get those on his friends list and his fans to lash out against the target of Elliot’s malice.
Here is Steve Elliot’s, head executioner of Toke of the Town, reply preceded by the entirety of the victims comment with the victim’s name withheld to protect the innocent (unfortunately I have not been able to locate his wall posting):
**Ten comments occurred, mostly by Warren Edson, before the victims posting that follows at 11:09 AM on Friday February 17, 2012**
Name Witheld: the drug warriors are laughing at u folks cause ya all can’t see4 that this infighting is hurting the movement… the bigger picture is that by furthering this debate you are helping the drug warriors…. you and steve eliot have done more to hurt the movement then the DOJ… you’re doing the DOJ’s work for them….
**28 Comments, mostly by Warren Edson, posted before Steve Elliot, lead persecutor for Toke of the Town made the following comment at 9:28 PM on Friday February 17, 2012:
Steve Elliott: (Name Withheld), saying that I’ve “done more to hurt the movement that the DOJ” is a stupid and hurtful thing to say.
Talk about “divisiveness,” ironic that you pretend you would *never* do such a thing. LOL.
That’s OK, I have a long memory.
You seem to lack the mental acumen to distinguish between “infighting” and refusing to accept everything certain people in the movement tell us as gospel truth. There is a big difference, but based on your comments in this thread, I wouldn’t expect you to be able to understand something so complicated.
Steve Elliot, head of counter-cannabis law reform for Toke of the Town, obviously took this comment out of context to give him reason to justify his childish temper tantrum and his atrocious behavior that continues to persist on Sunday February 19 2012 as described in the following portion of this story.
Steve Elliot, chief propagandist at Toke of the Town, then turned on another cannabis patient activist who commented on the subject matter of the original posting congratulating the first victim on their accomplishment. He tagged the next object of his lunacy telling her to share his falsified graphic with her “hero” the first quarry of his savagery. Unsure of what was transpiring between them and this maniac the individual did their best to engage Elliot in a diplomatic manner. This quickly led to Steve Elliot, chief of the DOJ’s counter-cannabis operations at Toke of the Town, maliciously attacking the next prey of his rampage. He has continued to harass the second victim of his tirade over the weekend and now on Sunday 19, 2012 it has progressed to the point where this person has shut down their FB profile, page and their blog, which is used as a tool for promotion if this persons online business. Steve Elliot is ruthlessly exploiting his position as Editor of Toke of the Town to wage this war, his personal vendetta, against honest, kind and good people who work towards the same goal as Steve Elliot professes, which, is the legalization of cannabis and the end to the failed policies of cannabis prohibition.
It appears that Allen St. Pierre’s comments hit closer to Steve Elliot’s, editor of Toke of the Town, front door step and now we see a nearly month long temper tantrum that appears to be a smoke screen that Steve Elliot is using to divert attention from himself. Why would he need to expend so much energy and take it upon himself to demonize disabled cannabis patients unless he himself was a charlatan defrauding the medical marijuana industry and cannabis patients alike?
Steve Elliot and his vicious attacks on cannabis patients and fellow activists in a power mad Facebook rampage, to me, proves that he has something to hide about his true reasons for being a part of cannabis industry. It is my opinion that he has no valid reason for this malicious attack other than greed, megalomania and a need to hide his defrauding of the medical marijuana industry and its patients.
