Those stories are saddening. The governmen is so crooked, abuse their powers and contradict their own laws.
"While terror alerts rise and fall and states struggle to fund their law enforcement budgets, the total number of marijuana arrests far exceed the
total number of arrests for all violent crimes combined, including murder, manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault.
Why are they doing this? How can they justify a war on a plant that causes no death within it's users when they cannot even catch real criminals,
murders etc. The war on drugs does not work, people are being locked away for no good reason.
"Switzerland's Addiction Research Institute calls tobacco the number one killer addiction, responsible for 71 percent, or 4.9 million of the
world's 7 million annual drug-related deaths. About 1.8 million deaths, or 26 percent, were attributed to the use of alcohol, while illicit drugs
caused about 223,000, or 3 percent, of all worldwide drug-related deaths."
I say ban ciggerettes and alchohol. Not marijuana, a plant that grows naturally on this fair planet of ours!
