Jesse Jackson's making things worse....AGAIN!

It's been a war zone for some time you fool, but you keep taking away police powers, and every single reverend runs to the aide of the offender within seconds of their committing their crimes and NOW, NOW you're requesting a call for a state of emergency!!!!

The .gov needs to rethink some things...

We spend at least $1B a year just to find and jail pot users.... Insane!

Marijuana isn’t a harmless substance, and those who argue for a change in the drug’s legal status do not claim it to be. However, pot’s relative risks to the user and society are arguably fewer than those of alcohol and tobacco, and they do not warrant the expenses associated with targeting, arresting and prosecuting hundreds of thousands of Americans every year.

According to federal statistics, about 94 million Americans — that’s 40 percent of the U.S. population age 12 or older — self-identify as having used cannabis at some point in their lives, and relatively few acknowledge having suffered significant deleterious health effects due to their use. America’s public policies should reflect this reality, not deny it. It makes no sense to continue to treat nearly half of all Americans as criminals.

Hemp: An Industry

Most people think only about "pot" when they speak/think about cannabis legalization. Hemp would create untold amounts of jobs in the US if it was again legal.

Here's a link to The Hemp Industries Association webpage.

Just think if we had to buy all of our cotton from other countries....and hemp is useful in myriad ways more than cotton.

There's always some truth in jokes...

From Obama's inner circle, he's from Kenya.
