we top it off by imprisoning tens of thousands more merely for growing or selling a bit of marijuana or Ecstasy or meth, wasting tens of
billions of dollars on an overflowing prison system and a failed drug war that no one at the highest levels of government dares speak against because
oh my God all drugs are evil! Now go slam a few beers and a fistful of Xanax and forget about it.
As one who was once an activist with NORML (national organization for the reform of marijuana laws) and a strong supportive of cognitive liberty, this
is something that hits close to home for me. the drug war is a total sham. sure, it is not beneficial for one to become addicted to crack or heroin,
but that doesn't mean we need to government to help us decide what we want to put in our bodies. the whole idea pisses me off so much. we should be
able to alter our bodies and brains and perceptions in any way we choose. in some ways, this is the BIGGEST conspiracy of all time.... religion,
government, the war on drugs, the war on terror (i.e. dissent) - they are all methods of controlling how we think and thus how we experience reality.
anyone who tells me i don't have the right to experience altered states of consciousness - whether through prayer, celibacy, meditation, magick or
chemical stimuli - deserves the most horrible tortures imaginable. of all our civil liberties and human rights, nothing is more important that the
right to enjoy, experience and alter your experience of reality. by confining us to the so-called "consensual" reality, they trap us in "their"
PS...I tend to encourage natural substances (alcohol, cannabis, psilocin) and the occasional mind-expanding chemical substance (lsd, doc, 2ci, etc)
but i in no way support pill-poppers, meth addicts, crack heads, heroin junkies, etc. BUt they should have just as much right to experience reality
as they wish as i do with my trippy #. ok, so maybe the addicts become violent and threatening in the need to get their fix? well, if everyone was
free to protect themselves (i.e. own guns) ...in an ideal anarchist utopia, it would all balance out. F**** the whole control machine. all government
is inherently evil.
