O-Bomb-a: Your drug policy has failed spectacularly. You really need to back down and apologize to the states, You should disarm the police state and tell the private prisons that their government sponsored circus is done. And let the alcohol industry know they will need to "compete" with weed....

The government doesn't even have the constitutional authority to prohibit a substance. That's why before the prohibition of alcohol the federal government had to ammend the constitution in order to enforce it. But through lies, propaganda, and time, they've suceeded in convincing the population that they have the authority to tell us that they can dictate what we can put in our bodies. They can throw non-violent drug-users in prison now, and no ones cares and treats them like actual criminals

Under laws in Malaysia marijuana is illegal also. So what if "federal law", that applies ONLY to Washington DC, says marijuana is illegal!

Th e 10th amendment plainly states that the feds don't have jurisdiction or lawful ability to pass laws on the states that the Constitution does not expressly give them the ability to do.

The "people" created the government to SERVE us, the government doesn't create anything and certainly didn't create the "people".

I agree. With JP. Since when do the people vote, and the government get to decide they have better things to do than to listen to us?
