On a somewhat related note: The Cocaine Project

The other day while researching some other stuff...I came across a 1995 report from the World Health Organization called "WHO/UNICRI Cocaine Project". There is no longer any question in my mind that weed and blow are illegal just because governments, banks, corporations, LEO's, and Prisons all make HUGE profits by keeping them illegal and it provides justification for massive amounts of money to be spent expanding State power.

• Health problem; from the use of legal substances, particularly alcohol and tobacco, are greater than health problems from cocaine use.

• Few experts describe cocaine as invariably harmful to health. Cocaine-related problems are widely perceived to be more common and more severe for intensive, high-dosage users and very rare and much less severe for occasional, low-dosage users.

• A majority of health consequences may not be directly attributed to cocaine use. Cocaine often contributes to or exacerbates the conditions reported, rather than causing them.
