Even within a jurisdiction,

Even within a jurisdiction, however, the status of a substance may be uncertain or contested with respect to both whether it is a drug and how it should be classified if at all. There is no single, precise definition, as there are different meanings in drug control law, government regulations, medicine, and colloquial usage. Thanks.

Rand isn't his Dad...

But he's the nest best thing. I'm all for legalizing hemp and I like his efforts to destroy the NDAA.

Hemp can take the power away from the oil elites who run everything. Hemp is not a drug, its a distant cousin of marijuana and is non-narcotic. You can make over 25,000 products from hemp including hemp oil that is made from the oil in the seeds. You only need to plant 6% of the farmable land in the US with hemp and that would be enough to supply the entire USA with oil. Henry Fords first cars ran on hemp oil before the Rockefellers and Hearst bamboozled everybody into using petro oil. Any Diesel engine can run fine on hemp oil.Ron and Rand Paul know this.

Woah!!! Hemp is no distant

Woah!!! Hemp is no distant cousin to MJ. It is MJ's brother.

"I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual."

Yes Sir!

This post needs more "up arrows"! Hemp and Silver, imo, will absolutely destroy the elite. If half of the working class bought one-one ounce piece of silver tomorrow, JP Morgan would crash within the month.

"And you can take that to the bank."

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

he's moving in his fathers direction

i think in 4 more years he may just get there!

Rand -

Deserves alot of credit in the senate he's a lone voice in there much of the time, and just like with the ndaa that he fought against he's fighting for medical marijuana and states rights to legalize it if they chose.. Though i have not smoked it and have zero desire to do it.. People should not be criminally charged for such actions its despicable. Im glad someones standing up.

I agree


good stuff!

Rand Paul is doing a good thing here.

So does nobody care about

So does nobody care about this? Or do you only care about trashing Rand for voting for a non controversial defense authorization bill that was passed unanimously?

Military spending is a big deal

That's a huge part of the budget. How can you ignore that, that's one of our main positions, cutting military spending dramatically. You know that 90+% of it is all for the Military Industrial Complex and has nothing to do with defense. How can libertarians turn away from such an issue? That's one of our MAIN things!

Rand has voted multiple times

Rand has voted multiple times to cut military spending. But, he doesn't want to cut massive amounts of military spending over night. He wants to do it more gradually. But as I've mentioned numerous times, this bill contains several good amendments that Rand fought for. It contains an amendment calling for an end to the war in Afghanistan. It would've been unheard of for the Senate to pass such an amendment a few years ago. That is ENTIRELY a result of Rand being in the Senate.

Bump. I'm not exactly sure

Bump. I'm not exactly sure why you can't just click on the link I posted. You can still copy and paste or just go over to Ron Paul forums and click on Rand's subforum.

try just using the youtube link.

probably has to do with the parenthesis at the end


edit: yep
