So much for this, I guess.
Well I think Spicoli prob made himself too big a target for the DEA to ignore...
Clearly, this is a 10th Amendment issue that the Supreme Clowns will not address.
Too much monee from big pharm and the cartels to be pocketed.
Yes... because medical marijuana really is medicine, and it really does pose a huge threat to the profits of the pharmaceutical companies.
If they want to call it medicine, they should take it like medicine, and not insist upon the most grody and odiferous way of ingesting it.
The FDA is big pharma's attack dog, maaaaan!
It's hilarious when the stoners start buying into their own bullshit.
Shit like this really just reinforces my view that agencies like the DEA and ATF have really just become their own independent agencies and operate without any executive oversight. There was really no reason to go after this guy, from what I understood about the new focus a couple of weeks ago is that the DEA was going to go after dispenseraries violating state and local laws.
You keep believing what you what, sir.
And you keep smoking that kind bud and believing in unicorns, moonbeam.
I don't indulge. Just believe in freedom, maaan.
Wow... you bought into the pothead Big Pharma is Afraid of Miraculous Medicinal Marijuana! fairytales and you're not even high?
Marijuana was legal (as was co-fucking-caine and morphine) prior to 1913. That's when the robber barons (Hearst, DuPont, and their lackey Anslinger) teamed up to make drugs illegal.
As they offered too much competition to their growing petrochemical, and wood pulp paper businesses.
It's all in the history books if you care to research it yourself.
And what the fuck relevance does that have a century later?
They could could legalize pot tomorrow and hand it out for free on street corners and it wouldn't put a dent in the profits of the pharmaceutical companies.
Pot is just pot... it is not the miraculous, globalist-supressed miracle drug the stoners would have you believe. It's just a plant that makes you high and can be made into ugly, scratchy clothing PERIOD. It is not the magical cure to all of the world's ills.
i possibly smoke more pot than anyone else on this board(not trying to start a pissing competition, but i smoke A LOT) and nothing infuriates me more than hippies and liberals. especially occupy wall street hippies and liberals.
Why is industrial hemp considered marijuana?
You can't get high from the shit. However, you can make clothing, paper (the Constitution was written on it,) plastic, and 100's of other items with it and it's byproducts.
Hemp was so vital to WWII the Government made a film about it to encourage farmers to plant it (Hemp for Victory.)
Stick that up your tight ass and smoke it, sir.
I think the relevance is that a century later this country has spent over 4 billion dollars fighting a losing war. Its not the magical cure to all of the world's ills. But legalizing weed could solve some of the financial problems in this country and put a huge dent in the crime rates.
When it comes to medical marijuana here is my philosophy on it. If it helps an individual sleep, deal with anxiety, pain, or the side effects of chemotherapy, why shouldn't that person be allowed to use it. Its the hypocrisy of the whole thing that bugs me. Especially when some prescription drugs have been shown more harmful then weed has ever been.
More people DIE every year from Big Pharma's RX drugs then in ten thousand years of marijuana cultivation.
I agree that pot is harmless and it should absolutely be legalized tomorrow if not sooner.
It remains illegal because it is not the high of choice for a bunch of tight ass Moral Orals... who prefer the get blitzed on 300 dollar bottles of single malt scotch. It DOES NOT remain illegal because "big pharma" is afraid that legal pot would render their meds obsolete and crush their profits... that's just silly pot talk conspiracy theory blather. The insane rantings of one-trick pony stoners like Joe Rogan... the proverbial man with a hammer to whom all the world's problems look like a nail. Or more accurately in Joe's case... the proverbial man with a bong to whom all of the world's problems look like a bag of the sweet sticky.
Ugh... more silly pothead bullshit. Stop with the hemp crap. Nobody cares about hemp clothing and paper... not even the stoners. If you handed a pothead a hemp plant that would make a shirt but wouldn't get them high, they wouldn't give two shits about it.
Just be fucking honest, potheads... you like pot, and you like to get baked. Stop with all of your big pharma, robber baron, and hemp clothing bullshit... it's just silly, and you're not fooling anybody.
Stop trying to politicize, conspiricize, and medicalize the simple issue of you wanting to smoke pot and get baked.
Regardless of your opinions, it doesn't change the historical accuracy of what he said.
Regardless of the historical accuracy of what he said, it's still irrelevant to the discussion.
Is too. Your alcohol soaked brain just thinks it isn't. :icon_mrgr
I'm beginning to wonder if THP has ever actually smoked weed.
"There are two kinds of people who are against drugs: The people who have never done drugs and the people who really sucked at doing drugs." -Doug Stanhope
And the latest Gallup poll states 50% of American's think the weed should be legal.
