ANYONE

that's lining the pockets of the FDA, Dept of AG, Dept of Energy, Dept of this, Dept of that on and on and on, will never be for the legalization of marijuana. Why??? Because we would no longer need their services!!! I've decided to start my own informational campaign on HEMP and Medicinal benefits of marijuana. And to end the stigmatization of marijuana. We have been indoctrined to see Marijuana as evil, and no self-respecting, God loving American would ever use it. But God created this plant for a reason, and many reasons at that! The only reason it is stigmatized is because we have been programmed to believe that, so Big Pharma and Big Ag/GMO could make money off of us. What's ironic is if we regularly ate from HEMP products and used medicinal marijuana, we probably wouldn't have nearly the medical costs we have today in America. So population control WOULD NOT be an issue for those that think they need to control it due to lack of food, energy, etc.

This was one of the biggist

This was one of the biggist myths that drove me absolutly nuts...Ask a young guy why he wants to vote for Obama "He wants the legalize weed maaaaAAAAAAn..." He NEVER said that. How that rediculous rumor got started, i will never know.

Why is this even posted?

Why is this even posted? This isn't news to anyone. Of course BO doesn't want to legalize marijuana. That would mean more freedom for the people. Perish the thought!

That's a good point

But it still hurts. It's like a slap in the face that you know is coming...

What do these coke-heads

have against marijuana anyway?

Ya, what a hypocrite Obama is...

I wonder if this will piss off leftists.

FU Barkey Barma!

I hope this pisses off liberals. I'm fumed!

BO is a NWO puppet!

The black people and young people will soon come to realize that he is a big disappointment!

Of course; he's a liberal Democrat.

Liberal Democrats believe in tightly restrictive laws that control "bad people" and are intended to be broken by "good people" (meaning themselves and people they like). That's why they have such a cavalier attitude about gun rights. They don't think those laws are going to apply to them. Read about the Carl Rowan gun incident for illumination:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Rowan#Controversy

Democrats believe in a society dominated by looter mentality, where there are no "honest men" because virtually everything is against the Law and everyone must submit to the government. Democrats are the looters Ayn Rand described in Atlas Shrugged.

Democrats are our enemies, just the same as globalist GOP traitors. If I had to choose which of the two groups were more dangerous--I'd choose the Democrats.

BO did say

BO did say that he was in favor of ending Federal raids in CA on marijuana dispensaries. Will he? We'll see.

Show me the Constitutional authority for federal drug laws.

BO, we are still demanding which Hawaiian hospital, which Dr., mid-wife, etc., etc. Because you haven't produced the information we seek, it's likely that you can't produce it and is why you have hired three law firms for hundreds of thousands of dollars to cover your lies? So, are these law firms then engaged in the furtherance of your unConstitutional escapades, too? Regardless of what you and your lawyers produce or proclaim, if it's not verifiable information of your natural born legitimacy, you will not be a lawful President of the USA.

The electors names posted, yesterday, is another compilation of persons whose efforts promulgate the nullification of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. If Bo's status remains officially illegitimate, then the Constitutional Republic is dead, as many of you have already posted on this site.

He has given the dictator answer.

"President-elect Obama is not in favor of the legalization of marijuana." AKA "Because I say so"

The most popular question on his questionnaire needs more than a one line answer. I hope during 'round 2' they pressure him as to 'why?'. That way they can uncover his level of retardation.

I don't expect much of anything from obama, except more government and more laws, hence less freedom.

Could have told you that one.

The war on you continues.

Number one reason to enter your home . . . suspect you have marijuana.
Over 300 countries affected by "war on drugs".

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

That the state inhibits this

That the state inhibits this behavior is, for the purposes of a good society, not good at all. It's horrible and erodes liberty and all that. However, frankly i find this whole obsession with marijuana equally terrible. Maybe there are a handful of people interested to overturn this for the purposes of liberty. Most people only care about this so they can engage in the behavior of getting high and feeling the artificial pleasure from it. All sides of this argument are bullshit save the argument for liberty, which essentially has nothing to do with the substance of the law but the act of legislating rather. It's a bad lifestyle because it is an addictive lifestyle, regardless of if it's beneficial or destructive health effects.

That's a bunch of BS

"It's a bad lifestyle because it is an addictive lifestyle, regardless of if it's beneficial or destructive health effects.'

Those are exactly the kind of arguments that the goverment-medical complex spews out.
Marijuana is not addictive. The most accurate way to verify this is to try it for yourself.

What obsession?

Ten years ago, before Columbine, in Libertarian circles, I would have agreed that there was an obsession with the "War On Drugs", but not today. It's almost become an obscure issue.

Obviously it should be legalized (completely) and my opinion or yours on how "beneficial" or "unhealthy" it is, is really pretty irrelevant. Marijuana should be legalized solely because its silly prosecution is a huge burden to American taxpayers.

In addition to taxpayers being screwed by marijuana prosecution, it's also unfair to do so and it violates our freedoms to restrict it. (Of course, what is there the government does that can't be described the same way?

Dude, I hate the laws

Dude, I hate the laws involving these "drugs." I hate um. I agree the quality of the actual substances are irrelevant. The only factor that matters and should matter is the concern over the erosion of liberty. Why is this difficult to hear? I am speaking extralegally, or maybe I should say irrelevant of the law. I am saying the majority of people are interested and do drugs to gain pleasure. So all the intellectual arguments are red herrings because the are a cover for something that has nothing to do with those arguments. In other words, the debating is simply a cover for the fact that people want to get high. I don't understand. Are you saying that's not the reality?

It's a big issue

Fortune Favors the Bold

because drug crime is what the majority of americans are in jail for. It also creates a "police state" culture even if you yourself do not use marijuana, its use is so prevalent, that you wind up implicated just by going out socially, probably more of an issue for younger people, but still a very big one.

Fortune Favors the Bold

Damn! Again, I have nothing

Damn! Again, I have nothing against it's legalization. I want that. The current situation is an oppression of freedom. That's no good. Yeah, all those people should be outta jail. Well, presuming it's just drug usage.

That handful has Ron Paul in it.

Ron Paul is for the legalization so don't get your hopes up in thinking you can put together some argument trying to label those who support freedom and personal liberty.

kthxbye

Wait, read what I wrote

Wait, read what I wrote again. I'm not sure what you're saying. I know Paul is for the legalization. I am too. But he is interested in it insofar as it relates to the erosion of liberty, which is why I care for the legalization as well. However, he's absolutely no advocate for it's recreational usage.

hmmm..

so are we arguing semantics?

My post is just to show that BO will bring no change and will be a complete failure in regards to the war on drugs, a war that ironically opresses the African-Americans in this country more than any other race.

Uh, I see. No not even. I

Uh, I see. No not even. I wasn't even responding to your post specifically. I was just commenting on the obsession with the topic. I mean I actually find the constant attempts on this website or frankly anywhere to smear obama desperate pointless attempts. The guy is not as bad as you or others want to make him out to be. Is he as good as those who make him out to be the messiah? Not at all. He's a moron in many many regards. But does he have some useful qualities? Yes. He cares about other people. He cares about making decisions with some sense of morality and social concern. These are good things and he has them and thus he is a gazillion times better than the previous and current administration. Will he suck in many many regards? Yeah, probably. But too bad either way. This is what we're getting. Deal with it.

The Ignorance on this subject , EVEN from DP is Astounding.

"Most people only care about this so they can engage in the behavior of getting high and feeling the artificial pleasure from it."

FIRST OF ALL IF IT WAS NOT A PLANT IT WOULD BE ARTIFICIAL PLEASURE... I AM Extending Middle Finger NOW.

2 The Entire Jewish Faith, Reform and Judaism believe that Cannabis is the main ingredient in the Holy Anointing Oil and given by God as a Mitzvah to the sick. This is why Israel does a lot of research on Cannabis and Uses it for their soldiers for PTSS as well as for nuerological disorders / injuries.

It is a fundamental first amendment right. IF you don't think that is the most important issue on the planet, your nuts.

In 1989 they discovered your brain has receptors that ONLY cannabis can turn on. This is why it affects so many biological systems and CURES everything from Cancer to Alzheimers..

Killing and imprisoning people for using cannabis failed over 2,000 years ago under Josiah fighting the female goddess religions and it will always fail. These "wars" have always been based on the dissemination of false information, suppression of facts, and a "higher moral authority" that allows one group to dominate and enFORCE their will over another group via violence, confiscation of property, imprisonment and even death.

Ever since the country herbalist were declared witches for using cannabis, herbs, and delivering babies to today. People have been persecuted, jailed, maimed, killed, and stigmatized. Like wearing a gold star that forever labels them and deprives them of job, housing, financial opportunitied or a stay at the state sponsored work camp.

Whether a human being uses:

Coffee or caffine (5,000 + deaths a year)
Uses Nicotine (Over 450,000 +deaths a year) *Which meets the requirments to be labeled a Schedule 1 drug and the DEA raiding the smokers house and putting growers in Federal Prison.
Drinks Alcohol (150,000 + deaths a year)
A Legal Doctor Prescribed Pharmocological Agent ( 27,000 + deaths a year )
or Cannabis (Zero Deaths Ever) Animals should not be deprived of what was a primary food source until 100 years ago as well.

They should not be arrested, fined (theft of money), imprisoned, or killed for these personal moral decisions. It is especially heinous if it is done with fully integrated profound honesty and the full light of truth on the subject. It is impossible to have a rational discussion and conflict resolution when one sides modus operendi is to suppress truth and burn at the stake any heritics.

The rationalizations and justifications are based in mysticism, zealotry that results in de-facto theft, destruction of human dignity and religious freedom in the privacy of their own homes or temples.

Legalizing Marijuana will result in a 50% reduction in teenagers using and trying Marijuana. Canada has similar results in BC since "decriminalization." So if the purpose of the 1970 CSA and the "war on drugs" is to stop the recreational use of cannabis then legalization is the fastes route. The reasons for this are not hard to figure out.

Slow Multi-Generational Environmental Destruction is the result. Over 100 Species of song birds extinct in the last 100 years as their main food source "ditchweed", hemp seed, that used to blanket this country for the last 10,000 + years has been erradicated. Even the Animals are denied Natural Law protections in this war on cannabis!

Evil is the Rejection of Truth...
Facts and Truth can never be rejected in the name of Morality...
Hiding the Truth in the name of Morality is an oxymoron.
The truth has a funny way of always getting out.
Cannabis is Medicine and has "accepted medical use" in the United States.

U.S. Department of Health Patent Cannabis.

Even though the Federal Government holds a patent on Cannabis for a variety of neurological diseases. (Alzheimer, Stroke, Trauma, Parkinson, Epilepsy...) And, the Federal Government has known since 1974 that marijuana plays a major role in cancer prevention and even stops invasive breast cancer, they have systemetically tried to suppress and even destroy all evidence and studies to the contrary, something the 2006 Madrid studiesexemplifies. Jack Herer's "Emperor Wears No Clothes" documents this.

The 1970 Controled Substances Act and Temporary Scheduling.

In 1970 the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) put marijuana temporarily on Schedule 1 awaiting the findings of the Shafer Commission. In 1972 when the Shafer comission reported that marijuana users "are essentially indistinguishable from their nonmarijuana using peers by any fundamental criterion other than their marijuana use." They found that, "Neither the marijuana user nor the drug itself can be said to constitute a danger to public safety." The Commission recommended "Decriminalization of possession of marijuana for personal use on both the state and federal levels."

The Commission's findings caught many by surprise, since both the President and the former Republican governor of Pennsylvania, who chaired the Commission, have reputations for tough 'law and order' approaches to drug law enforcement. The President refused to read the report. He said in a news conference, "I am against legalizing marijuana. Even if the Commission does recommend that it be legalized, I will not follow that recommendation."

The Netherlads did listen to the findings of a similar report and now Marijuana and recreational drug use among Dutch teens is 1/2 that of the U.S. Anyone with a rudimentary understanding of human nature can figure this out. As George Willhelm Hegel said "what man learns from history is that man learns nothing from history."

1974 University of California Studies.

The government then grants money to study marijuana and prove conclusively that it is bad for you. Unfortunately they didn't get the results they wanted, again! Here & Here

Reported nationally in an Aug. 18, 1974, Washington Post newspaper feature, the report read in part "The active chemical agent in marijuanacurbs the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice and may also suppress the immunity reaction that causes rejection of organ transplants", a Medical College of Virginia team has discovered."slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice..

The full study was reported in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, Vol. 55, No. 3, September 1975.

Destruction of Studies / Historical Documents and Truth.

1976 Ford Administration Bans independent and and federally sponsored research on the use of natural cannabis derivative for medicine.

Allow this to sink in for a moment. This is a irrational hatred of a plant to the degree that the cure for Cancer is supressed and all research banned ! Really weigh this against the false projections of morality, your conceptions of humanity and decency. Although I have great respect for Ronald Reagan, I am sad to report that he to participated in book burning and supression of truth. The Reagan / Bush Administration tried to persuade American Universities and researchers to destroy all 1966-1976 cannabis research work, including compendiums in libraries. Many have disapeared.

The 1942 documentary film Hemp For Victory was almost lost to history because of this zeloutry. All references of it had already been removed from the library of congress but a persistent Jack Herer found the original film diggin through the stacks.

Destruction of Knowledge and History is dispicable and the tool of zelouts and tyrants.

No rational, objective person can condone or be silent about it.

Natural Herbalist ("Mideaval Witches") have long known about the "magical" properties of Cannabis for healing. This irrational hatred is misogynistic in many ways. And clearly is not based on rational objective analysis but rather the supression of truth and dissemination of falsities.

Accidental Medical Studies and the Drug War Escalates.

1989: A government-funded study on the brain at the St. Louis Medical University determines that the human brain has receptor sites for THC to which no other known compounds will bind. It is almost as if the cannabis plant has some purpose that sets it apart from all others on the earth.

It has a unique relationship to a multitude of physical systemic reactions induced by the activation of the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain resulting in the wide variety of therepudic benefits on a wide variety of biological systems.

Despite all the evidence to the contrary in 1989 , Drug Enforcement Agency Director John Lawn orders that cannabis remain on the Schedule One narcotics list, reserved for drugs which have no known medical use.

Throught the 90's the drug war escalates and in 1990 alone 330,000 Americans were arrested on marijuana charges. September 5, 1990: Los Angeles Police Chief Darryl Gates testifies before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee that casual drug users should be taken out and shot.
