If government solutions such as Fast and Furious and Operation Gunrunner and even the decades old "War on Drugs" are any indication, then the women and children will be promptly sold into the sex trafficking industry. Any profits from this trade will of course be used to fund such important governmental functions as paying for Pelosi's $100,000 liquor bills. Gangsta Government to the rescue...not of people's lives, but of their money.

So we are going to pay for an addict from NJ?

Family based treatment is too enabling. Loosing children is a consequence a mother would need TO GET CLEAN. No consequences = no motivation.

There is no sicker field than the addictions field too much time spent fighting over turf than actually helping people....give them MORE money sure...

Obviously Obama's concern for women and children will be as racist as his concern over Black employment

Send a letter to your Representative, ask him or her to support HR 2306, and help end the Federal prohibition of marijuana. Enter your zip code in the form on the right, and a form will appear (with an editable letter) for you to email your member directly.

Finally, two members of Congress have shown the guts to take action against this stupid policy. Representatives Barney Frank and Ron Paul have introduced HR 2306, a bill that would end the Federal prohibition against marijuana:

For far too long, America has been "addicted" to an approach to marijuana that is counterproductive, outdated, and frankly, just plain stupid. It makes no sense to spend enormous amounts of money chasing after marijuana users when there are far more important things for our law enforcement officials to do. It is ludicrous to pursue victimless crimes when there are crimes with actual victims that go unsolved.

No welfare, Food stands, subsidized housing nor any other government assistance unless the recipient passes monthly random drugs screens. If you fail, you are permanently banned for any future benefits. Deny illicit drug users treatment at hospitals when they party too much and overdose. Why should regular,hard working and responsible people have to support or bear the burden of paying for people not worthy of it.
Dopers are plain and simply the losers of society, living on the tax payers dime. I say to hell with them.
