Well written.70 years of prohibition. The real question is "how is it that in the land of the free, people have been able to tolerate prohibition even more than one hour?".
We have just betrayed the spirit of the founders of America.
I can understand a law which enforces the presence of warning about possible secondary effect of some medication. I cannot tolerate a government telling me what is good or bad to me. This is a private question concerning me, my doctor, or my priest. Not the states, nor the feds.
It is two times more shameful today, as quite numerous evidences exist that prohibition was just fear selling and special interests, as we can see that the war of drugs is far worst for our kids than any drugs could ever be.
Prohibition is not even the real problem. The problem is the mentality, the lack of education and the innumeracy, which has made the propaganda working.
If the money used by the prohibitionist was used in education, we would already walk on Mars, and be far more healthy at many levels (economical, ecological, ethical, physical, mental, spiritual, etc.).
Prohibition is only a criminal technique to steal money, not to invest in any genuine prospects.
It must and will end. The sooner the better.
Do you all realize that whatever states do, the Feds will eventually crush that freedom.
The only answer is to get the feds out of it.
This petition does just that, giving the people of each state the right to decide what they want.
That way, the feds get money, the people get the freedom, so those who are against it will also have that freedom.
THIS might be a huge win for the American people = the people defeat the feds and states become more powerful.
This is BIG.
