Yes. It is easy to produce. Thus one of the many reasons found for remaining illegal. For legalization purposes, there would most likely be a cap, on how much a person could grow on their own for self use. Now, do you have any idea how much extra man power it would to police that? Not to mention the fact that the legal eagles are perfectly aware that the majority of backers for legalization, are addmitted offenders. Therefore, criminals wanting to be de-criminalized. Really doesn't help at all. Actually, probably the main reason it remains illegal.

They make too much money with it being illegal to ever legalize it.

You don't actually believe everything you read do you?

If history is a lesson, they would FLOURISH even more! Why? Because of a higher turnover, and more customers. Same thing happened with GAMBLING. The mob had small time numbers rackets and bookies hidden away behind legit busness's they ran. When gambling became legal, they just went into LEGAL business. So, I don't buy that lame argument. It is propaganda bullshit, period.
If pot became legalized today, who do you think would be paying off the politicians to get exclusive licensing for growing and distributing? The mob, the crooks, the cartels that are profiting today will continue to do so, under the guise of legitimate business, while at the same time using thugs to burn out or "waste" any competition.

Think about it................


Using history as a lesson, alcohol is a far more representative substance than gambling. The mob got into legal gambling because in most states, it still is or was illegal. They were only able to get into gambling also because of their illegal gains from unions. Marijuana, on the other hand, is so easy to produce, like alcohol, that it wouldn't be as exclusive and expensive to start up as gambling.

There's just as much propaganda coming from the anti-legalization side. The biggest problem with the "war on drugs" has been the coinciding war on freedom. The biggest drug cartel is the U.S. government, and associated state and local law enforcement, who make money by pushing for drug convictions, or worse, mere accusations. Governments never should have been allowed to seize property or money from citizens based on accusations. Many people have had their property or money taken away from accusations, never to get it back even after being exonerated of charges. People still can have their money taken away if they happen to carry certain amounts and law enforcement happens upon them with it.

George Carlin said, (paraphrase) even after he went clean he would keep a joint around for when he would get stuck, and since he only smoked rarely two hits and he would start writing for hours. I believe it was in one of his shows on HBO............... found one not from HBO but

are these things "drugs" to you? NO? well their just a much drugs in my eyes as is weed.



those chemicals are worse if you ask me....think about it, we have no clue what goes into half the stuff 'prescribed' by doctors....how it affects us....never mind the chemical junk in half our food or candies we give to our children...

it is frustrating how collectively ignorant blind and asleep we seem to be.....how seduced by advertising and marketing....to then be afraid of so many things yet, like good little children swallow our medicine of flouride, herbicides, msgs etc etc and thats just the tip of the iceberg....(lettuce)

i dont smoke much- i tend to have pretty wild trips....balls of light coming from my hands, angels etc....or heavy paranoia.....my man does from time to time and i like the small amount of contact i get....but to demonise it, and take away our choice?

It doesnt make any sense.

@ stone- yeah i read how you got your name- just think the porn king idea is a tad bit more exotic ;)

oh\
and btw
a friend accused me that my writing was like a dopehead, because I jump from one theme to another then tie them all together. But after watching the video i posted here before, where the 'scientist' recognised that it is that ability to connect disparate things that is what is recognised as genius....i wonder.....
id love to do an experiment
my man gets a lot of his writing done and inspiration whilst he is high...is there a connection then? Between the state induced by a joint and artistic brilliance?

I do remember that they did come up with a machine, just as they were outlawing hemp.

I found this quickly with google.

I'll try to find the other link I was talking about.

I find it so shocking that the corrupt few behind the conspiracy to demonise hemp have had such a potentially huge imact on the human race for the sake of personal profit. May they burn in hell.

I believe the other reason it was dropped as such a mainstream crop is that no one ever created a machine to harvest it mechanically - it was traditionally stripped by hand, obviously a labour intensive process and why this blog talks about it not being 'industrialised'. I could be wrong but im sure i heard that in a documentary about this i saw a while back.

At the very least decriminalize it. Grow industrial hemp. Don't believe the lies. The courts and jails are over run with non-violent 'drug" offenders.

Check the post about screen names and you'll get the user name story.

Oh and as for the porn thing, I would go broke!!!

I don't sit home and smoke all day as some would see it. I have a family and wife to support. I guess you could call it social use. I have always preferred to take a couple of tokes, instead of drinking, much like someone may come home and have a glass on wine. I don't like the total loss of control that comes with drinking. Cannabis has a relaxing effect, it's hard to explain. I have never stumbled blindly to my car, fumbled for the keys, started it and drove home, to come to, in my driveway wondering how I got home, after smoking a joint. In my youth there were many nights I had this happen from drinking. It's not something I am proud of, but still a fact. I have never done any hard drugs and never had an urge to. I am not saying everyone should try it, or like it, but for me it works.

I wonder if hemp wasn't such a threat to those companies mentioned in the first link, would cannabis be illegal. I truly don't think so.

or stoned -69?

see the second name makes me think of some really cheezy porn flick guy with a large....... spliff....and in an exuberant numerical postion!! ;)


sorry

anyway

yes I agree with Cornbread on this one- couldnt say it any better

excuse my ignorance, but why is it illegal? I mean alcohol is not exactly good for us, nor is nicotine......

and if hemp doesnt get you high- whats the problem?

here in the bahamas its totally common place- smell it everywhere you go
in fact the rastas selling nuts on the street sell nuts and 'irie nuts'! (if you get me)
