Draconian legislation

More of someone's two-bits worth on the marijuana prohibition issue

My two-bits worth is that the cannibis dialoque has been gone over by scholars, royal commissions, public reports, finanical costs, health experts, and notwithstanding the intrusion by the de facto state to use draconian legislation to infinge on peoples inalienable rights, etc. ad nausem!

The only conclusion that a well-informed intelligent person can come to is to decriminalize the plant — period.

However, I concur with Blair. That our government apparatus in this regard is completly blind. Employing malicous, willful ignorance. To disregard this fact leaves any reasonable dialogue on this issue in la-la land.

Unfortunately, the insanity of this system makes money from every angle off of this perverse situation. It has become a twisted employment opportunity for all involved. Except for the ones who have no profit motivation whatsoever.

So, at the end of the day, we all end up holding a bag full of lies backed by fraud and violence. All at the expense of everyone in our communities.

Curious too that Angus Reid did a poll about two years ago. Asking the all important question here: “Should Marijuana be decriminalized?” Sixty-nine per cent said ‘yes.’ (Mr. Harper should put that in his pipe and smoke it.)

And in conclusion, I was just watching a report from Dr. Mercola talking about the tragic death of Whitney Houston. Over 100,000 die every year from perscription drugs In the U.S.A. How manydeaths have ever been attributed to pot? None.Not freakin’ one.

Lest we not forget that the multinational pharma corporations spend billions to get Health Canada to endorse these toxic cocktails.

If this whole situation was not so harmful and costly it would be laughable.
