I hope this goes here...I think that the government has spread lies about everything since it was formed. Im not pro-drug or anything but I thought that I could speak freely, so here it goes. I think that the government is only after money and only wants to make money off of people. They let people drink and such because it causes so much damage to them physically and mentally, thus they are making money off of us. They have a problem with drugs, such as weed because they cannot tax it because you can grow it in your own house. They also cant "cure" it through any sort of medicine. They only want to make money off of everyone at the expense of our health and well being.

By this standard, many other drugs should be legal, if the purpose is to make money off us by 'allowing' people to use damaging substances.

If they wanted to legalize weed and tax it, they could. But with the legalization of use would probably come harsher punishment and enforcement regarding home growers and the like.

other drugs like tobacco, legal opium based pain killers like percoset, oxycontin, morphine, and for that matter a large percentage of all prescribed drugs.for example if you ever watch tv, you've seen commercials for an enormous variety of anti-depression and anxiety medications with 10 page lists of side effects.

wrong again. they have tried. ever hear of the marijuana tax act of 1937?


well that sure was easy now, wasn't it. i mean, it was so effective, that marijuana use has all but disappeared, and all sales are easily taxed and regulated.

I dont think it is our government because I do believe our founding fathers, at least most of them, wanted whats best for the people. It is the fascist in our government, people who are there with industry ties that make laws that boost their profits are the ones that only want money from the people. That is where the problem lies.
