no matter how you play it... it's still breaking the law. and as long it is so, those who break it are criminals in the usa. PERIOD.<quoted text>
I believe that he was making the point that not all cannabis users are unproductive, unmotivated, unemployed losers. Although they don't usually make it to the "pot rally's" shown on the news (because they are at work), the majority of cannabis users are just your everyday citizen.
I would argue that because neither the extreme "pot-head," nor the prohibitionist represents the majority of citizens, then perhaps prohibition should be re-examined. After all, freedom and liberty does in fact provide the opportunity for citizens to make choices for themselves, that others would not.
Furthermore, the federal laws covering cannabis are shaky at best. The federal government enacted them using the commerce clause, arguing that a plant grown on ones own property (and consumed there) somehow impacted interstate commerce. This is quite a stretch. This same legal argument was just shot down by the supreme court as unconstitutional regarding Obama Care. If the political will was ever available, this federal prohibition would be ended and the legalities of cannabis would be left to the states as the Constitution intended.
frankly, I feel like breaking the law sometimes. I feel like clubbing you guys who are into dope. why not? since breaking the law is the trend now. why not?
I'm not hurting anyone except the the dope addicts. right? they are criminals. you could say I'm helping out the cops. and the money I take from them will stop me from having to go to the state for financial assistance.
