    Well, if your job was totally dependent on the war on drugs, and you didn’t have the skills or the intelligence to find another job where you would be grossly overpaid, perhaps you would lobby against it too. But we are comparing apples to oranges. Free thinking adults who are truly able to think for themselves know and understand the truth. Especially the pharmaceutical companies who started the entire thing with………….Well, read on:

    Gateway Drug?
    Cannabis cannot be the “Gateway drug” they speak of. It wasn’t the first one to connect those pathways. There was another drug that got there first. It was administered to us by our parents and prescribed to us by our pediatricians. It followed on the heels of what people were still referring to as “THE MIRACLE DRUG”. Yes, pennicillin truly was a miracle drug in it’s day. So why should we not trust our Dr’s when they gave us something that produced instant results and allowed Mom to sleep for what may be the first time in several nights. But the medication prescribed was not for Mom. It was given to baby when their screams from emerging teeth kept us awake for days. It produced instant quiet and let us breathe easy for the first time in who-knows-how-long.

    Well, from WWII until somewhere in the late ’70’s, nearly every baby born was prescribed PARAGORIC as an infant to relieve teething pain. Doctors never gave it a second thought. And best of all, it worked. So Moms never hesitated to use it. So here we are, giving all babies, (before their brains are even fully formed,)a prescription that triggered their brain to release that dopamine. And that connection never really left us. Then, years or decades later, the first time we ever consciously got high, that feeling of dopamine, releasing itself, flooded our subconscious with all the feel-good memories that were suppressed for decades. Bingo! Our brains were ALREADY programmed to respond. So, long before we ever thought of smoking that first hit, we were already programmed to respond to ANY drug. No matter what it was. That’s why people, who never even tried Cannabis, can so easily become addicted to prescription pain relievers. The gateway has been there since infancy. So Cannabis or not, most of us have been pre-programmed to love that dopamine release. So, please stop blaming the Cannabis. Let the blame lie with the real culprit. PARAGORIC, otherwise known as TINCTURE OF OPIUM. Yes, that’s right we were all giving our babies pure opium before we were even aware of what the results might be. So, if you are looking for a “gateway”, there it is.

    The Cause
    by:Hope

    Why do you suppose we spend half our lives
    in an attempt to feel euphoric?
    Could it be because, as infants,
    they fed us paragoric?

    “Oh, is your baby teething?
    (This’ll help you cope with ’em)
    Absolutely harmless as can be!
    (It’s merely tincture of Opium!)”

    I’ve known some medical researchers want more access to the restricted canabonoids because they believe there are good medicines to be derived.

    While far less physically harmful than say tobacco inhaling smoke still probably wouldn’t be healthy.
    I can see legitimate reason medically to oppose unregulated smoking marijuana.

    I’d still prefer the government leave it up to us.

    As far as the police go there is that “we can’t be wrong” authoritarian ideology that’s awfully hard for them to shake. Its a lot easier to blame people than deal with the underlying issues.

    Money and power addicts do what they do to trigger the same dopamine that junkies trigger with heroin.

    In a sane society, the money and power addicts would be in jail and/or treatment centers for their unconscionable crimes against the environment and humanity. In insane societies cannabis users get arrested while money and power addicts are free to flaunt their dopamine triggers and get away with murder in the blind pursuits of money and power (i.e. dopamine).

    Oh good Lord above!!! Tax it – and I guarantee our country will get out of debt!! Not to mention the crime will go way down. I’m sorry the different “Special Interest Groups” are depending on this continuing to stay illegal – but, honestly – have you ever heard of an accident due to someone being stoned – on pot? Or, a stoner killing someone – on pot, that is. Seriously – people would be so laid back, and happy. Now, we would have to worry about our obesity problem – but still – that is a whole lot better than the crime and killings, etc.!!!!!!

    This seems to hit a sweet spot back at home. So, we wrote about it on our facebook landing page, and asked the question… “Do you think it’s ok for someone who just smoked “Medical Marijuana” to be driving on the road?” It’s followed up with a link(which I wont bore you with here), that goes into more details PRO and CON on this. I would love to hear your reply in here, or you can check out the question and comments on our facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/Safety…

    Consider the money made by drug testing too, all the remedies sold, the society created to keep people jumping from job to job…urinalysis makes certain people a lot of money. Huizenga got his start that way and the bush family is in it along with many otheres….even NORML and high times capitalize on this by selling “Remedies” for urinalysis.

    What in the world does “proper grammar” have to do with it anyway? Let’s face it. It is currently illegal, it will remain illegal, and no matter how much the pro marijuana advocates want it legalized,unfortunately it won’t happen in our lifetime. I have terminal cancer, and marijuana works much better than any anti-nausea medication I’ve come across yet. But my oncologist refuses to prescribe it for me. So I have to take my chances and obtain my “medicine” any way I can. It really sucks, but if I get busted, hopefully one of the main antagonists “law enforcement officers” will have the decency to look the other way when they realize my prognosis and need for the product.

    Howard Wooldridge with COP is the only true advocate for ending this drug war issue! He will not waste your funding for this cause. Believe me DC knows who he is but he is only ONE person doing the right thing for this cause. I give COP $200 every year because he is actually making a difference with educating DC and has integrity unlike many others whom are not walking the talk. He is very well known as the cowboy with the big hat in DC and he is making progress with a few honest legislators and the younger staff of other so called elected leaders. MPP, NORML. and LEAP have left me with a bad taste after my experience working with these groups. My belief is that they also like the factual BIG FIVE above also just want to keep their money flowing into their own pockets. This war will never end in my life time if we do not have more people like Howard in DC. Most of the leaders in this country have a character like the narcissistic; I believe most of them are old white men who live in the past and they have the power and money and use it mostly for themselves and their family’s benefit. Ted Stevens is a great example of how politics work in the US. Also what comes with this is the creation of very little or absolutely NO JUSTICE in the legal system! I pay my taxes, vote and volunteer in my community and I smoke pot, I do not drink or use other drugs. I believe everyone has someone connected in their circle of family, friends and acquaintances that is associated with marijuana use. And they are people who are professionals and blue collar workers. Please consider joining COP for only $30 if you want someone who makes a difference.

    It’s sad when our law enforcement, prison employees, and prison owners want more crime. Rapists and murderers roam the streets, but our judicial system would rather go after someone for violent crimes against a bag of potato chips.

    I have been learning, from the video game Assassin’s Creed 2, about the groups that have control of this world (see Wikipedia ‘conspiracy groups’). Truly, it is all about the money, and the power and influence, that is obtained from the spending of that money. Drug companies, drug cartels, and the like, make the most money directly, while the others make the money indirectly, from all of us, whether one is, or one is not, a user of the herb. Most police, not all, see the average citizen as a potential criminal, and not as an average person, because they know that they can get away with the murder or death of the average citizen, no matter the cause of the confrontation, or just for being confronted at all, by an average citizen, they feel the need to put a bullet into that average citizen. While it is true that there many people out there who have trouble with their ability to maintain a minimum of self-discipline, while not under the influence of mood/mind drugs, on a daily basis, it can be said that the use of said mood/mind altering drugs can lessen that minimum of self-discipline. When it comes to the herb itself, it can be said that, that when used in moderation, it has the potential to lessen the violent tendancies in that are in the nature of the average human being, and is the original peace giving plant since the begining of time keeping. Lets face the facts of reality. Anything can be abused. Politicians abuse their power, and the populace, all of the time. They always start out with pretty words and slogans, to generate an interest in their campaigns and their so-called issues, then when elected fall off of their wagons, like the turn-coats they are, and we collectively fall for it each and every time. Obama is just another example what has come before, and what will come again, in the near future, with the current election just ahead. Those who are in ‘power’ seek control, of us, who are not in power. Before you eat you next meal, consider the contributions and efforts of the individuals who worked hard to get it there, so you could eat it, and the energy and time it took to cook it. Life here, in the USA, and elsewhere, where food and drugs are easily available, is made possible by all who cooperate together, without conflict, for the benefit of themselves, and for the benefit of those that consume the goods and services that they provide.

Don’t cite the old argument of Alcohol because it falls into the same catagory. ESCAPISM!! This subject flies in my head like a swarm of Hornets! I can not even mount a coherent argument!

      What part of this law do you like? The fact that it will be the state who decides who will farm it? The fact that PhRMA will encapsulate it? or the fact that it will be sold out of pharmacies? I take it that you don’t have a serious health issue for which Simpson Oil would cure you? If you did, you would realize what the pharmaceutical industry is going to charge us….THOUSANDS for dollars for this Oil – Guess some of can afford to pay for medicine from pharma; but, some of us can’t. Where in this law does it say that medicine can be grown by patients?

      Prove it. I’ve heard this stupid rumor since I was in middle school… “yea man Marlboro has huuuge fields of pot all ready to go when it becomes legal maaan” – BS. If that’s true why to they spend millions of dollars putting politicians and judges in their pockets to keep it illegal? They don’t want it legal because anyone can grow pot in their back yard with just a little water and sunshine.

    I’ll add another major lobbying group who do not want marijuana legal or a lessening of the criminal penalties-the Mexican drug cartels. Mexican pot sold in the US has accounted for billions of dollars of profits for the drug cartels. The Justice Department is also against legalizing pot for a number of reasons. One important one would be the devastating effect on the Mexican cartels which would have direct negative effects on the overall Mexican economy which is already struggling to survive.

    they should just make it legal. there are way to many people who smoke pot. and if every really thinks about it its not the worst drug out there. i mean look at the people who do meth that drug does much more harm then pot. pot is a relaxer and to help people eat and sleep and its not addictive in all reality ya it does have harm to ur lungs but it does help people function.

      Yup – especially for the kids who have brain cancer CURED and for those with HIV and for those on CHEMO. Yup….keep it illegal so they can all suffer without it. Couldn’t agree more….who cares about people suffering in the USA. 60 years since Hearst got this prohibition for his paper/pulp industry protection….that’s good enough reason to keep it illegal. Yup…make everyone pay for 60 years of lies…yup…Simpson Oil cures at a cost of $3000; but, hey….let big pharma profit….don’t let the parents grow it to save their kids life. WHAT? no scientific evidence? lol. They have been researching this since the 60’s and so far? It’s benefits far outweigh pills that PhRMA shoves down our throats…..Yup….play right into pharma’s hands…keep people from living a quality life – for whatever time they have left on this earth….make them sick to death with chemo…yup….

    We spend Billions on stopping drugs coming across the US boarder we wast all that money, we could be earning from Taxing it and giveing it to the Mexican Cartels to buy guns, then they kill 1000’s fighting each other so we are really killing more people by our Laws then the drugs. We also are taking Police man power away from stopping violent crimes. So if we legalized Pot and Tax it use the money to education kids. As I can buy alcohol and become a drunk but I choses not to so I chose not to buy drugs your life your choice same as smoking cigarets. The government is not our mother you want to jump off a bridge do it your life your choice thats why I love Ron Paul ♥ Oh in Australia it cost $15 dollars a pack of cigarets and the government uses the money to pay for health. Why don’t we ???

    Wow, many more people care about this issue than I thought. Whether you agree or disagree with drug legalization, our current policy is without merit. It costs too much for the results (the proliferation of cheap guns, the steady demand for illicit drugs and increasing demand for narcotic prescription drugs, the increase of profitability for drug cartels, smugglers, and other black matket dwellers). It doesn’t address the economic problems that it creates (artificial inflation and hazard inflation) nor does it address it’s inability to curve use, abuse or addiction.

      The War on Drugs causes underground criminal groups that can do business by buying and selling drugs. It is a government made business because no mater how much time or money is spent there never will never be an end to the drug use. If it makes you feel good you will do it. Or at least you have a choice to choose if wish to do the drugs or not. Law enforcement are bragging how they brought down a big drug operation yet within a week operation is replaced and back in business as usual. Did they stop the problem? No. By the time they get done patting each other on the back, the drugs are being moved again as usual. If the drugs were made legal there would not be as much competition in drug sales because it would be legal and you would be able to buy it locally. The drug could be produced by FDA which would be a much cleaner form of the drugs and profits would be legal for the government like alcohol and tobacco. As it is, it is just a big criminal enterprise that that needs to be stopped. These crimes by our government and law enforcement cause more damage because of wrongful deaths of many innocent victims and incarceration of 100’s of thousands of or American people. Besides, everyone has a drug of choice, something that makes them feel good. Be honest with yourself. How would you like your choice of what ever it is that make you feel good be against the law resulting in prison time. Cigarettes, alcohol or your favorite dr. prescribed oxycontin…..
