Re: “Drug Testing Coming For America's Unemployed

This is so like how the Nazi's behaved as they got closer to the final solution.

More ''crimes against humanity''.

This is slavery.

Support any state ballot initiatives you can.

Legalize! Apologize! Compensate!

Re: “Legal Weed Appears to Cause a Sharp Reduction in Suicides: Discuss

This is not at all surprising and another charge of crimes against humanity against prohibition.

In fact why have there not been studies in this field sooner? Surely it must be obvious that when extreme duress is put on society for everyone to conform, people must breakdown with serious mental disorders including the most serious, self destruction.

People take drugs to alleviate pain. Prohibition spreads fear and despair. The authorities drive people into drug use.

I have had a couple of friends commit suicide after years of police harassment. One beautiful girl didn't even smoke, she just liked to live in the bush, all of her friends smoked of course but the cops were determined to bust her but she beat them.

Once your on the police radar, they don't let you go, they keep coming back, it's utterly demoralizing. Many people have to get up and move home but eventually realize that means moving town; usually from a smaller town to a bigger one, gradually depopulating rural areas. A lot of people live transient lives because of prohibition. It's really hard to find somewhere to put your roots down.

Of course people turn to drink, and alcohol can lead to psychotic behavior and violence, who has not seen drunken attitude on a night out.

And this tendency of alcohol to aggression is only exacerbated by the pressure of the police state watching over us.

Alcohol is a big part of domestic abuse too. Women's rights will be greatly advanced by giving their men a safer choice.

Prohibition actually makes society more aggressive and self destructive.

Add this study to other recent ones that find that states with decriminalization or medical pot had less driving fatalities, it is not involved in memory loss, does not contribute to lung damage, not related to cancer, may even protect against cancer.

Many people live with chronic pain and terminal illness.

They have to live in agony and die early to save a teenager from having a toke behind the toilet block, that he's going to get, regardless of the law.

How many people have wanted to die to escape the pain? How many choose death?

But wait, you're not allowed to do that.

You can't euthanize, you can't medicate.

You're a slave to be tortured for the whim of the police, judiciary and politicians.

Who wouldn't want to check out of a world this inhumane when racked with ultimate pain?

Fortunately the damage can be undone by re-legalizing the herb that is for the healing of the nations.

Support any state ballot initiative you can.

Legalize! Apologize! Compensate!

Re: “San Francisco Dispensaries' Annual Sales Estimate: $41 Million

The cops really have nothing to fear from legalization.
They may lose cosy jobs pushing people around but there will be plenty of well paid jobs in the legal cannabis industry and their already quite familiar with the plant so they could have a head start on everyone else.
That is the cops who don't end up in drug war courts charged with crimes against humanity.
Prohibition has been a disaster beyond compare and when its over the world will settle down the wars will end and we'll be able to get on with life which is a hard enough job without this brutal pressure our government put on us.
