Prohibition was Never about "getting high", corruption has snowballed and continues to this day. Corporations own the laws. Money spent fighting pot are not really wasted dollars ( for them) ,it keeps our majority of citizens from recognizing the big picture (50,000 more sustainable uses) that they are making trillions going around the "Everything Plant"! Back in 2009, the DEA alone was spending 10 billion dollars per year, JUST FIGHTING POT!
We know why they make pot out to be the opposite of what it really is,...$ can you say, Con Job ?! The system has been making too much easy money to stop this practice. Police unions, prison unions and many corporations, like; big - oil, alcohol, tobacco and big pharma, lobby billions in order to make trillions. $Talks,pot walks. In the news, synthetic marijuana "K2" is turning people into poptarts. K2 is nothing like pot, even though the media describes it as "designed to mimic marijuana". This is horrible chemical crap that DOES CAUSE PERMANENT BRAIN DAMAGE. The media just gives pot a bad name and is just a corporate tool.
As an American citizen, you have the right to literally drink, smoke, and eat yourself to death, but when it comes to consuming marijuana, that’s off the table, even though it is impossible to die from smoking pot to excess. Here’s the way I see cannabis legalization: Every person on the planet should be allowed the freedom to use his or her judgment when it comes to what’s best for his or her life and well-being, as long as it doesn’t infringe on anyone else’s rights. If we are indeed heading towards a global shift in consciousness, and I and many others believe/sense/know we are, we have each been given one/seven billionth of the assignment.
Strive to be as loving as you can. It's that simple (but not always that easy). The lack of One Love - unconditional love, agape - has created our existing painful planetary crisis. Only a global infusion of love will heal it. To awake at this time has been encoded in our DNA. It has been activated. We know this at some deep level. Welcome HOME (we never really left - only in our dream of separation). Pot is the opposite of dangerous. Pres.Ron Reagan said; permanent brain damage, truth is; No permanent brain damage, actually causes new brain cell growth ( nero-genesis). Also, No overdose deaths, ever. WEAR not WAR!
