Free And Legal Pot (Cannabis)
Well, it finally happened. Enough people came of age and took the government to task for the 85 years of corruption engineered by Morgan bank, DuPont and the Hearst papers.
Without going into the horrid history of prohibition I want to start out with the first efforts to dink the armor of the government justice departments bent on making money on crimes they created. That is to say, medical marijuana.
Medical Marijuana – The Dink in the governments armor.
The people at NORML were adamant to adopt this front as they launched their lobby efforts to bring the wonders of cannabis alkaloids to public acceptance. Many of us in the business just thought it was a bit of a charade to the reality, health or not, cannabis prohibition was wrong. That most people want to use it as a recreational substance like others use alcohol. For socializing and having a good time. That it eases our pain and let’s us remember what we did last night just adds to reasons it is so much better as a recreational substance than beer or hard liquor.
So we find “States” which are supposedly sovereign entities who rule everything outside the US Constitution, are hamstrung by a central government bent on squeezing the last years of DuPont patents on synthetic fibers profitable. We see the federal government stopping the banks from accepting business accounts from the manufacturers, we see states going to court to collect taxes, we see the federal government demanding tax be paid on income like any whore has to do, we see other States set up road-blocks to make sure citizens of other States are not enjoying something they want to put you into private jails to work for 25 cents an hour stealing work from even the minimum wage market. Prisons are profitable! But only if stocked with non aggressive pot heads.
Anyway, we are getting somewhere. There are now places in the USA where you can sit and enjoy forms of cannabis without the paranoia of police breaking your door down to put you into slave prisons or confiscate all your worldly possessions to enrich local and state police coffers. We have a choice now. Do it where you are or move to where you can.
The benefits of the recent banking bailouts and theft of the economy is that the States are left without anything as they handed all their budgets and the next 50 years of your labor to banks. Now enforcing stupid laws costing them billions they see revenues in the billions. It is a no brainer for brainless governments. With this, money, the most powerful weapon to control politicians at our disposal the fight for freedom partake of a plant might be finally returned. They are being forced by economics.
So I reminded of a song I heard “Strike While The Iron Is Hot.” It is time to turn the heat up on the federal government to take cannabis off the schedule of narcotics and leave the plant alone. Rescind prohibition and let the States do what they should do, the will of their citizens.
