Wanted to make sure his investments in pine were used to make paper instead of the use of hemp. During this time, a lot of drug laws and taxes appeared. George Washington grew marijuana for medicinal/recreational purposes. This is known because of the way he grew them. As far as Nixon, he did a lot to destroy healthcare, in general, in this country.

I find it interesting that we have Nixon tapes. Who stopped taping the White House? Well, J. Edgar Hoover died under the Nixon administration... so there you go.

Should this be Schedule I? Absolutely not. NIH, which funds this research, generally conducts government funded studies. This has become, hardly, an independent source.

Great ending

While he had the time, asked a question of the narc twice, then interrupted while the narc was going on about "it's the law, dur!" with "you're not going to answer the question, I yield back my time."

And then when asked about where the flag was flown, he thought it was the Capital, and added "Give 'em enough hemp and they'll hang themselves."

Well, traitors will run, so sometimes they will need assistance with that...

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Society is based on law?

Laws are just threats of force, they have absolutely nothing to do with right and wrong! Even if this guy is well meaning, and is exposing the ridiculousness of criminalizing marijuana, he still is missing the bigger picture. The problem is not just arbitrary marijuana law, the problem is law itself. Laws make it so people don't have to figure out right and wrong... everyone is treated as an infant, and not only that, an infant that will be stolen from, attacked, caged, and even killed if they go outside of the "law"... whatever that law is.

"Society" is not based on law, it survives despite laws, due to cooperation and the non-agression principle... most people are naturally anarchists/voluntaryists.

A message to those in the DEA and those who assist them

You are criminal scumbags who should not only be fired and your department turned into a medical marijuana farm but you should be thrown in prison or given the death penalty by a lawfully seated jury for your on-going overt acts of levying war against We the People of the United States. Article 3 section 3 of the US Constitution:

"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court."

The drug war you levy against people IS Treason. You are levying all out war against innocent people and you deserve a jury's guilty verdict and capital punishment for your ongoing criminal acts of treason. The very fact that you get away with levying war against us is absolute proof that there is a total breakdown in the rule of law and NO real justice in America.

Your colorable claims and the corrupted judiciary who conspires with you demonstrates that it is YOUR crimes that have destroyed the protections of law and corrupted law into an instrument of war against us. You are the enemy of all law abiding people and anyone willingly supporting you is providing aid and comfort to the enemy of We the People of the United States.

The most powerful Law of Nature is Time. It is finite and we all will run out of it. Use this Law to your advantage, for it offers you infinite possibilities...

This is kind of

Outrage I love to see. Grounded in knowledge, and passion for justice. Not the bullshit most of these hearings peddle. I'm looking at you Issa.


Wish I could've upvoted this 100 times. Of COURSE the DEA is making money from marijuana confiscations. We're talking job security here folks, not people's lives.

Same Guy

...who was arresting people for drinking alcohol in 1929, who searched European homes for hiding Jews in 1940, and who will be confiscating Americans' firearms in the years to come. Humanity evolves slowly and very little.

Then he went home and had a few stiff drinks of 20+year old scotch.
It is hard to get anything but the basic answers from programmed robots,So I am not so sure he was schooled,he has to keep the illusion(lies) alive
to have his job,and justify his stealing under the guise of law enforcement.
