Man why am I not surprised that the US is concentrating on Weed when we all know how Safe Heroin or Cocain is. He must have some other motive other than the supposed public safety issue... Now I'm not going to go as far as to say he's profiting directly from this since there is no documents proof, but it wouldn't surprise me one bit if it turned out to be true...

I guess the profits from the oil in Iraq werent coming in fast enough. You can't blame him for trying to make a little money on the side till he gets his Iraqi fief under control.

The Bush/Rove machine is just preempting an affirmative decision from SCOTUS on Medical Marijuana.

My advice for the rastas in the house; read ATS hourly, get carpal tunnel, move to Oregon.

As the rest of the world relaxes its laws pertaining to pot, what does our benevolent government do? It tries to lock up more of those hate-mongering, greedy, closeminded, violent hippies and afterwork smokers. Heaven forbid all those educated, job-holding, mild mannered occasional high-ons be allowed to smoke a natural herb in the privacy of their own homes. Maybe he'll lock up all the people who don't vote for him next, what do we know anyway? Is Bush my brothers keeper? I am my keeper.

See its those arabs again !!! darn it. ! gotta love em !

1.1 Cannabis has been used medically for thousands of years in oriental and Middle Eastern countries and as an intoxicant for many hundreds of years in India and in the Middle East; and it was employed in Western medicine for at least two millennia. The medical use of cannabis in Europe and North America, however, declined in this century because of the lack of any standardised preparations of the plant product and its unreliable
absorption when given by mouth, and because of the development of more
potent and reliable drugs for the conditions for which cannabis was then
being used.


my bit:
Incredible how this paragraph basically explains bushes was on terrorism and harmless ol joint... 1. Its the arabs fault 2. we cant tax or get $$ from a home grown drug now can we.

China is threating to invade Tiwian, the Middle East is in flames, North Korea is building nukes as fast as they can, Terrorists might or might not have Nukes in the states, the economey is slowly going down the toilet, we are losing one freedom after another, our sons are dieing in a war that is questionable at best and what are two greatest threats to America?

Gay Marriage and Pot Smokers.

How long do you think it'll be before the Bush Administration decides to adopt proposed UK Childhood anti-drug vaccinations!

Children to get jabs against drug addiction
Ministers consider vaccination scheme. Heroin, coc aine and nicotine targeted
By Sophie Goodchild and Steve Bloomfield
25 July 2004

A radical scheme to vaccinate children against future drug addiction is being considered by ministers, The Independent on Sunday can reveal.

Under the plans, doctors would immunise children at risk of becoming smokers or drug users with an injection. The scheme could operate in a similar way to the current nationwide measles, mumps and rubella vaccination programme.

Bush needs a swift kick to the forehead. Break a leg, George. Hell, break a couple of legs.

Where'd we get this guy?

Sorry but I have to agree with that there are plenty of other drugs that do far worse to society then a joint, and that the reason they tend to pick on marijuana is because it does not fit into there agenda. Weed would inevitably spur inspiration for a more productive society full of good ideas and change. This scares those who are confined and ruled by dogma.

Illegal drugs are about as unpatriotic as you can get. This country was built partially on drugs (our constitution written on hemp), this country, until right about WW1, had legal drugs sold over the counter.

In the good old days, Mariluana epileptic tinctures could be found in any apothocary or general store, right next to the Morphine cough syrup, concaine toothache drops, and Heroin pills. (Heroin was a brand name for diacetylmorphine, produced by the Bayer company, in 1898, as a painkiller, diarhea treatment, and cure for morphine addiction).

At the turn of this century, 1/4 of Americans were believed to be hooked on some kind of dope. Yet strangely.....this country was pretty ok. Violence was minimal. Hardly any divorce. Everyone working. Opium dens in full swing. other than Victorian prudishness and anti Chinese feeling, there were no problems.

Then suddenly, in 1914, they started outlawing coc aine and Heroin. Citing problems that probvably didnt exist, most likely pushed by the temperance movement, as alcohol was banned only a few years later.

Pot was still legal. Whacky Tabbacky was still smoked from sea to shining sea. That us, until 1935. Thats about when Dow Chemical develop[ed a process on how to get paper more efficently and cheaply from woodpulp, and suddenly, hemp was a threat.

Then WW2 comes along, and hemp production is all the rage, seeing how our supplies from southeast asia were cut off.

My point? Drugs are as American as hot dogs at a ball game and moms apple pie. Marijuana has the longest history of use in this country by europeans. It was an integral part of our heritage. the founding fathers grew the #, the wrote our sacred documents on hemp.

Bush is an evil, unpatriotic enemy of America. Commie, fascist, call him what you will, hes as un American as it get.

And Ill smoke all the more pot to protest.

Weed is out of control.
We should give harder drugs a chance in the spotlight.

People isnt this ironic for a man that spend almost 2 decades of his life enjoying the evils of addiction now has the face to regulate and prohibit drugs, like another member said maybe is a call from god to stop all evil doers and users from polluting their bodies.

I think the main reason for bush's anti-weed stance is the pharmaceuticals
They tried unsuccesfully to produce THC (active element of pot) in a pill form.
If it became exceptible to the public that weed works better than half the pills they sell us, they would stand to loose a lot of money.
They would have a hard time controling it. The state will not allow us to become self sufficient in anything.
Yes they would package it and tax it, but they could not realy stop ppl growing their own.
If weed didn't have beneficial medical properties it wouldn't be an issue.
It's the evil Feds, not our local governments, who are still enforcing anti-marijuana laws (in most states). The corporations police force?

The single worst drug problem in America has to do with Methanphetamines and this problem seriously needs attention. In Hawaii, all organized crime is derived from power originating from the control of those addicted to Ice (a form of Crystal Meth that is smoked). Addicts stay up for 2 or 3 days at a time, doing jobs for their dealers (anything). These people are called "Ice Warriors" by ambulence drivers, police and other domestic servants because they are quite literally the foot soldiers of organized crime.

Because people on this chemical loose all sense of right and wrong, become incredibly paranoid and will do anything to maintain good relationships with the dealers, the power derived by this network of dealers [and the bloodline that controls it all] is staggering. Combine this with a reasonably thorough understanding by those involved in controlling this trade that it has been used by both the Japanese and German armies to control troops in WWII and you begin to see a quite alarming picture.

While Hawaii has a very serious problem on it's hands because of this, there is no reason to believe that this problem is not spreading to the mainland - under the same powerbase. Consider a very powerful, heavily funded, high-tech multi-national (mostly asian) organized crime organization that uses addicts to a chemical as it's foot soldiers (totally expendable, ignorant fools that do whatever they are told by dealers). Consider this powerful organization getting richer, larger and spreading - heavy money laundering operations providing funds for new legal ventures and funds to unfairly compete in many market segments. Get in their way and you have fricking ice-heads falling out of the trees on you (take this from personal experience).

This is something that someone DOES need to do something about.

I get a kick (pun intended) from this one. Most Canadian or UK citizens have no clue that their countries ALREADY can do this. I personally know a Canadian RCMP Officer that has this ability LEGALLY.

So if you think the US is breaking ground are sadly mistaken.

I'm allergic to marijuana and suffer everytime I mix in crowds, but Gibberish still isn't getting my vote. I'll bet he just lost the election if my reaction to the Walmart's crowd is any measure of the number of pot smokers in any given community.

I totally 100% agree with you man, and even though I am against the whole 'War on Drugs' I am not against the War on Organized Crime and since Meth is a tool it falls under the War on Organized Crime. In Toronto we havn't had that exact problem but since the Hell's Angels moved in to Ontario Meth and Cocain has been all over, and I fear that what you describe could be the next step.... Espesially when you consider that Canadian Weed goes south and American Guns & Meth comes north...Out and out exchange because the Americans view on Marijauna causes extreme inflation putting weed on par with Meth or Coke. This is starting to look more like the world of Max Payne every day now..
