Cannabis: An Amazing Resource!

Prohibition has failed. Again. Unless your in law enforcement.

We all know the real reason weed is illegal. It’s not because people who are stoned are dangerous or violent, or a threat to their community.

As secretary of state Hillary Clinton recently stated, there is too much money in it. Without the millions of criminal marijuana users, there wouldn’t be such a great need for the amount of security forces and government watch groups to take our hard earned tax dollars and turn it into guns and ammo. We are not stupid, but it seems as if we are being treated as if we are. We need to remember that we get to control how we live in this country, and on this planet as free human beings. It is us who decides what is and isn’t acceptable. The people in charge might not be listening to us today, but one day very soon a new generation will. Government = the people. Get involved.

Prohibition on alcohol only created an underground criminal network of regular people who wanted a drink. It created an atmosphere of crime and violence because the demand was so great, and when people want something, they get it one way or another. The same can be said for the prohibition on marijuana. The fact is almost everyone has smoked weed at least once before, or does not care if someone else uses cannabis. It’s a joke to say that people who smoke marijuana are more likely to cause harm than someone who consumes alcohol. I know this from personal experience. Generally when I consume alcohol I’m more open to doing things that I would normally consider risky, or even harmful. However when I consume Marijuana I’m much more likely to think more about what I want to do, and I am in a much more peaceful state of mind. In my opinion if all the war lords of the world would just light up a doobie once in a while, there wouldn’t be so much conflict and violence.
