I recently read the book "The Secret" and it discusses a "universal knowledge" and the "law of attraction". It explains that people need to teach themselves to connect with these powers in order to achieve what they want out of life and for those who master the techniques, they truly have their own "genie in a bottle" because they actually can make all good things happen.
And the power becomes even stronger when groups of people practice it because a collective consciousness attracts more of the knowledge than a single individual.
I honestly think that MJ actually helps people to connect to that "universal knowledge" and the more people that realize this and begin to use it the right way, the more power they will have over the controlling government.
Since the government is already aware of this, they would know it's in their best interest to keep it illegal.
Additionally, in order to further prevent us from connecting to the "universal knowledge", the government manufactures huge amounts of dangerous pharmaceutical drugs and then uses the media to push them on the public and pays off doctors to push them on their patients.
These drugs, in addition to the chemicals that we are fed in our food, water and personal care products are all designed to weaken us and take away our power because the chemicals cause neurological damage. How can anyone connect with the "universal knowlege" when our brains are fried with literally thousands of synthetic chemicals?

i personally think all drugs should be legalised, the drugs themselves are not inherently bad, its the people who take the drugs who do the bad things. excuses are the refuge of the weak. when a junkie goes out and robs an old lady, he should be held responsible, not the drug. these people accept the fact that when they take the drug, i'm going to use heroin as an example, everyone knows that heroin is horrendously addictive so people who take it should be aware that they will get addicted. after they have accepted that everything they do to gain this drug is on their head because they put themselves in that situation in the first place.
as for the dangers of drugs, what i do to my own body is my own business so long as my good time affects me and only me in a negative way, i think its my right to do so. alchohol is just as dangerous as the other substances i have been known to partake in plus its addictive.
like i say, i know most/all of you will disagree with what i've said here. but this is how i see the problem.

Here is a great article by ABC News questioning the government's drug policy focusing on marijuana. This article also talks about how this anti-marijuana policy takes resources away from the real bad illegal drug crisis in this country, which is methamphetamines.
