hillstreet U don't understand that prohibition causes all this unnecessary violence? Learn from history prohibition didnt work and had the same effect the first time around. It sure hasnt worked this time either. Our politicians have sold us down the river.
What the city officials are doing in LA is a disgrace. The dopists need to be recalled for violating the wil of the people or voted out of office. (dopists and dopism is like racists and racism only the hate is directed at stoners.) Hopefully the next election or two will install people who respect the will of the people rather than looking for weaselly ways to circumvent the will of the people. If these politicians were not corrupt they would put the issue on a referendum ballot.
Cannabis was listed in the US Pharmacopeia from 1985 until 1942, 5 years after prohibition began. It took Harry 5 years to get it removed because the AMA was opposed to cannabis prohibition. In fact Cannabis has been used as good, safe and effective medicine in every major culture since the beginning of recorded history. cannabis is one to the 50 basic herbs of chinese medicine. There are numerous scientific studies showing that cannabis is a safe and effective medicine. These people are being willfully ignorant of history and science.
Cannabis prohibition has been a scam from day one. The scammers are riding a gravy train of at least 40 billion dollars per year of tax payers money. Prohibition was wrought from blatant racism, fraud and corruption & monopolistic business practices by Sec Of the Treasury Andrew Mellon and his soon to be unemployed alcohol prohibitionist nephew, Harry Anslinger. Andrew nepoticly set Harry up in a life long position as the head of the newly created Bureau of Narcotics. They did this when they realized alcohol prohibition was not going to last. They pandered to monopolistic business interests, The Duponts, the synthetic fiber, plastic and cotton industries, the Hearsts and paper pulp industry, the Rockafellers and the fossil fuel industry. They used blatant racism and fraud to obtain their goal of marijuana prohibition. How sleazy is that and who in their right mind would support or condone it?
