American Lungs Have Already Voted

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

It looks like California may pass Proposition 19 – decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana for personal use.  Since millions of Americans already smoke the stuff and enforcing anti-pot laws is nearly impossible, this is hardly big news. But leave it to the government to make a federal case out of nothing based on embarrassing stupidity.

US Attorney General Eric Holder recently said that if California voted this measure into law, the Federal government would step in and enforce its own anti-pot statutes in the state.

Eric – what the hell have you been smoking?

Let’s forget about a few big issues here like states’ rights, the fact that the Czar of the 40-year old, $1-Trillion “War on Drugs” admitted it’s a failure, and Obama has a lot more important things at which to fail (like his Mideast wars). Put all of that aside for a moment and try to remember this:

In 1996, when California passed its “medical marijuana” law,  Proposition 215, the Feds threatened the same thing.  The government was immediately taken to court – and lost.  It’s been 15-years now and remarkably our nation still stands – despite status quo dolts like you who are trying to protect the $10-Billion per year ANTI-drug industry.
