Quote: "They will NEVER legalize it because the CANNOT tax something that grows out of the ground."
Uh I know its been said - but I am looking at a pack of Cigarettes right now with a "Tax Stamp" on it!
Quote: "It would work the same way if we could grow aspirin, or pepto, or Vicodin. Why in the hell would anyone pay drug companies thousands for
something a 10 year old can grow in the backyard, or livingroom?"
Well first of all - it takes some skill. You have to know what you are doing (Just ask REZ - Uh I mean "DA FUNK"
) - it is not that easy to
obtain a high quality final product. A Ten year old can not pull it off - besides what 10 year old has a Mortgage or owns a home? In addition keeping
it Hidden from Law Enforcement is an even GREATER Challenge. You are correct on your point that we no longer want to give away a Fortune to Greedy
Pharmaceutical Corporations any more - not like they actually care about our Health anyway - we are just "Consumers" to them.
Tobacco affects Health & is Highly Addictive yet it is LEGAL!
Alcohol kills more Brain Cells than anything else & it has been greatly Abused - leading to many Accidents & Violence - yet it is Legal.
Yet this Herb that Heals & Enlightens - has never killed anyone - remains ILLEGAL. Does everybody see Societies double standard yet? Does anybody
still deny that these Pharmaceutical Corporations are pouring Millions of Dollars into Politicians to keep the current Ridiculous Policy going? In
addition why would the Government want to Legalize a Substance that Opens your Mind & makes you question Authority?
GOD Created this Plant. Right now we are saying that our Human Laws are more important than GODs Law. Legalize CANNABIS!
