Back in 1937 the US Federal Government made Marijuana illegal. It is hard to think of what life would be like with out these laws. I was born in 1979 and the “War on Drugs” had already been declared by Nixon. So I really have no idea what life was like before police started busting in doors and shooting people.
I do know that the “War on Drugs” has cost this country billions of dollars. I’m not talking about just in federal spending, I’m talking about jails, prisons, police training, K-9 units, border patrol, & countless number of deaths. The US Federal Government has been in the business of funding and causing some of the largest drug cartels and organized crime. Everyone knows that prohibition doesn’t work.
I have done post like this before and I feel that the country as a whole would benefit from the legalization of Marijuana. Marijuana is not only good for medical reasons, but the hemp plant can be used for so many textiles. It is also a renewal energy source as it grows in about 6 months, and I would think places like CA, FL, & TX would be able to grow it year round with the warm weather.
It is time to tell the truth to the people of the US. Stop lying about all of the dangers that just are not true. I love my personal freedom and personal responsibility. I feel that those that want to keep prohibition would have been taken out by natural selection for their co-dependence on the government.
Please help free Citizens of the US and Citizens of other nations around the world. Ending marijuana prohibition here in the states will truly make an entire world of difference. The US has so much influence on other countries in regard to this issue. We, as a nation, don’t trade with some countries that want to make Marijuana legal. Now is the time to help out the Citizens of the US and the rest of the world.
