Re: “'Repeal Cannabis Prohibition Act of 2012' Filed

I wish the Carlifornians all the best. Luckily no such initiative is needed in the Netherlands, but pressure from abroad (most likely the US behind the scenes) is causing the government to tighten regulations already.

I think that the lobby of vested interests profiting of prohibition (law enforcement, commercial prison system, religious fanatics, drug gangs and criminals, parts of the pharma and chemical industry and of course the alcohol industry) may get an impulse as these groups, for the first time in decades, needs to worry about loosing parts of their business due to legalization. And it may even be a driving force behind the current tightening in the Netherlands.

Politicians will be bribed, vile advertisement campains and 'documentaries' with new 'facts' on the dangers of this plant that has been widely used by mankind since 5000 years. I hope that this time the supporters of legalization work better together and have enough funds to defend against lies and misleadings.
