I think I saw a movie with him in it once.

Steve McQueen film.

The guy was a prison warden who had that line, "Wut we have heah, is a failure to communicate!"


Actually that was "Cool Hand Luke" with Paul Newman. It was Strouther Martin that delivered that line.

Classic Oscar winning film.

Lol this guys is making up things as he goes along. He hasn't done a single bit of serious study about the "why" marijuana was made illegal...but hey, on the bright side, he's just proven that he's an idiot.

Typical right wing idiot, showing his ignorance (weed), his racism (black folk are addicts) & finally topping it all off with the patented right wing projection (drug addicts in his white family).

People wonder how the country ends up with such morons for political office?
It's simple, people dumber than they are keep voting for them.

Politicians are so because they're not good at anything else but being idiots.

What I'm curious about is... What brought you to the point that made you think "I'm going to google 'black people can't handle their weed'"? I have to know this ... Think before you respond. Someone might call you racist


Why?

I would guess the same reason I googled it - to see if there was something to it.

A couple of years back two specific genes responsible for how marijuana affects you were isolated, so it is not unreasonable to assume that difference in genetic markups across races could make (in this case) blacks susceptible to more adverse side effects.

So is addiction a choice or is it genetic?


So the politician is saying blacks smoke weed because of genes, and everyone in this thread is saying that blacks just choose to break the law and smoke weed.

Maybe weed is just racist, like milk is

Does this guy have any proof of this? Like a scientific study? Collected statistics that show blacks smoke more weed and are affected negatively by it?

What more proof do you need than a film from the 30's?

I can drink your average person under the table and still tie my shoes.
A couple puffs of the herb and I am snoring in dream land.
That's about all I get out of it.
Different people have different metabolisms.

I'll have to watch that, yeah I guess you're right, some people really do use stuff like this as the basis for their decisions.

Southwest Ks where this idiot represents is a craphole with wheatfields, feedlots, and slaughterhouses. He is one of those special churchgoing people that actually have no compassion for anyone who does not look or act as he does. The sad truth is that he will not be leaving office and will most likely be re elected. The only african americans this jackass interacts with are the ones the local jayhawk junior college conference imports in to man their football and basketball programs.

This specific politician is in Kansas, which has a Republican Governor and a Republican controlled State legislature (31 to 9 majority in the Senate & 85 to 40 majority in the House). And all of its members of Congress are Republicans. How is this supposedly a Democrat state? And aren't virtually all of the "Bible Belt" states controlled by Republicans?

“There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz, and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.”

“…the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.”

“Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality, and death.”

“Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.”

“Marihuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing”

“You smoke a joint and you’re likely to kill your brother.”

“Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind.”

No wonder Trump made POTUS with retarded closet racists like this fool in existence.

Whats the bet if you were to ask the clown exactly what Deoxyribonucleic acid is he would not have a clue?

Also, im not seeing many, or any for that matter, black people in that room, where are they?

Must have all been to stoned to make the meeting.

Tell you this, that fool should be stoned, and not in the good way. LoL
