    These same people probably think that passing out condoms in high school wont reduce the rate of STDs. Why do Americans keep electing retards into office, and then do nothing as special interests lobby their freedoms away?

    Re: U.S. decrees that marijuana has no accepted medical use

    If marijuana was good enough for George Washington and other founding fathers, then it's good enough for me. I don't use, but I have no problem with anybody else using it. Hell, even if I did, it's none of my damn business anyways, and it's certainly not the government's damn business either.

    "Leonhart has consistently turned down research into the therapeutic and medicinal benefits of marijuana, and has a track record of undermining state law with regard to legal medical marijuana. She has also spoken in favor of the Eighteenth Amendment and suggested a federal ban on production, possession, transportation, sale, and consumption of alcohol. Recently several pro-legalisation agencies have called on President Obama to withdraw his support of Leonhart, including SSDP, MPP, NORML, LEAP, and DPA."

    Gotta love high level government idiots.
    All it takes is one moron to make it to a high position of government authority, to screw everything up.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    You do realize that this whole entire bull**** war on drugs predates Obama and pretty much everybody else holding office in the Federal government, right?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Funnily enough, there's a historical precedent there as well. Virtually every state-level anti-marijuana law, not to mention those of the federal government, was passed due to the propaganda work of one Henry J. Anslinger, who was this country's first drug czar. He linked marijuana to various demonized immigrant groups (e.g. latinos, black jazz musicians) even going so far as to suggest that red China was important marijuana to destroy youth culture in the US; and funded numerous bull**** propaganda films claiming that marijuana was deadly, dangerous, etc. He also had ties to the prohibition movement prior to being appointed drug czar in the 30s. Somewhat ironically, he was later given an award for his work by Kennedy (who's family infamously made their fortune in bootlegging).

    The decision by the DEA comes almost nine years after medical marijuana supporters asked the government to reclassify cannabis to take into account a growing body of research that shows its effectiveness in treating certain diseases.



    What the hell is going on???
    Why is the DEA!!!!! making that decision? That makes absolutely no sense at all. Like asking foxes to babysit the chickens. Our government is nutz. Really.

    When I see idiotic comments like this, I immediately know to no longer take anything said poster offers seriously.

    It's an election year. 'Nuff said.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
