    That is hardly constitutional.

    I know quite a few individuals who were not interested in getting arrested and were enjoying synthetic marijuana legally. Now they can be charged with using a Schedule I drug and possibly considered a felon. Enjoy your legal relaxation while it lasts.

    In this case, they appear to have called a "public safety emergency assembly" in order to deal with synthetic marijuana. They have decided it is a Schedule I drug for at least a year, but they will more than likely do their best to permanently schedule synthetic marijuana.

    This should be up to Congress.

    I agree wholeheartedly. It's absolutely asinine that the DEA can simply make something illegal without the consent of the American people.

    Better yet, it should be up to "the States, or to the People" as per the 10th.

    The way I see it, if somebody is doing drugs or alcohol, and is not hurting or violating the rights of others, it is none of the government's damn business. But don't tell that to the government, who wants to be the great nanny that protects us all from ourselves.

    **** the government. It no longer represents "We the People", so **** them.
    These policies stem from Public Support somewhere.

    First Thought's point was that the government was driving people to do illegal drugs.

    People choose to do illegal drugs - there is nothing the government does that encourages this.

    The truth? The whole truth? And anything but the truth!

    This ban is the result of years of mind set that rivals: "If it feels good do it," in the case of the DEA's motto it's: "If it feels good ban it."

    The Government has been in the business of lies and propaganda since Randolph Hearst lead the mass of lies about the dangers of Marijuana because the use of hemp based paper threatened his timber empire that was making him even richer.

    He used his new papers in the mid 1930s, to tell the Nation that Marijuana was the cause of some horrendous murders by Mexicans under the influence of pot, and the lies got into high gear in the public and on Capital Hill.

    These lies and other lead to the movie Reefer Madness in 1936, which was 100% lies, and in truth helped fuel the use of drugs in the 60s when that generation found that it was all lies.

    The lies about pot alo lead to increased teen pregnancy and the use of hard drugs because when a young person learns that Mom and Dad have been lying about Pot they figure they're lying about a lot of other things.

    The DEA like any Government Agency has to continue to come up with some new threat to maintain and or grow their budgets and make it possible to say we are on the job making America safe.

    The science or medical considerations are not considered but sound good. Better safe than sorry, don't you know.
