Incidentally, does anyone know why there is such a marked and obvious bias and concentration in the 'anti-drug' advertising campaigns against the one particular (illegal) drug that has killed nobody directly, and has lesser psychological and physical dependencies than opiates, coke, alcohol, nicotine, speed, tranquillizers etc?
Why are the powers that be so paranoid about pot
... to the extent that a related plant, industrial hemp (which doesn't get people stoned), perhaps the most versatile plant out there, is illegal
for farmers to cultivate? (!!!) Considering that widespread hemp agriculture would help America's energy situation and reduce dependency on Middle East oil, as well as providing raw material numerous other products... it makes one wonder if the powers that be are:
(a) completely insane
(b) in the knowledge that its harder to sell a "hemp war" than an "oil/"terrorist" war"... or
(c) in the pockets of whatever lobbyists and corporations... etc etc...
This is yet another case of big intrusive government telling people not only what they can inhale, but also what they can and cannot grow on their farms.
