yet they have the right to break my door down in the middle of the night and arrest me for smoking a joint? Who is the criminal and who is the victim here?
And when was the last time POPO broke down your door and arrested you for smoking "a" joint? Did they take you downtown and use the cattle prod and water torture on you? Did they throw you in solitary confinement for a week or two? Wait, it may just be the normal paranoia stoners tend to endure.

Wachovia regularly helped move money for Mexican drug cartels, the bank's parent, Wells Fargo, has admitted in a deal with federal prosecutors, Bloomberg Markets magazine reports in its August issue

The deal, struck in March, "sheds light on the largely undocumented role of U.S. banks in contributing to the violent drug trade that has convulsed Mexico for the past four years," Bloomberg writes.
Wachovia, which San Francisco-based Wells Fargo bought in 2008 amid the financial crisis, admitted it "didn't do enough to spot illicit funds in handling $378.4 billion for Mexican-currency-exchange houses from 2004 to 2007. That's the largest violation of the Bank Secrecy Act, an anti-money-laundering law, in U.S. history -- a sum equal to one-third of Mexico's current gross domestic product," according to Bloomberg.

"Wachovia's blatant disregard for our banking laws gave international cocaine cartels a virtual carte blanche to finance their operations," Jeffrey Sloman, the federal prosecutor who handled the case, told Bloomberg.

The corruption created by the war on drugs has infiltrated the highest levels of our government and business..........ending this insanity will not be easy - there is too much money and power at stake now. It is not about our personal rights or individual freedom any longer-it is about corruption of power at the highest level. When one of America's largest banks and the Federal Department of Justice among many other US agencies are laundering drug money and supplying guns to criminal cartels -who are the criminals?-THINK!

Think is a lame ass pot head. Every time he lights up, he is breaking the law. He already has one felony arrest for his passionate love of marijuana. And every time the "moron" gets toasted, he is filled with the urge to stalk people V I A the internet. I'd bet the FAA would like to know that there's a 51 year old pot head taking his "private air craft" to the sky stoned. Hey, Think, didn't your last marriage end because you were taking all your x wifes money to buy pot? Man, that's a healthy relationship with marijuana. What you need is rehab Amy Winehouse - well, minus the hair and talent of course.

He's an old hippie and he don't know what to do. Does he hang onto the old or does he grab onto the new?

On August 3 2010 President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act, which reduces the disparity in the amounts of powder cocaine and crack cocaine required for the imposition of mandatory minimum sentences and eliminates the mandatory minimum sentence for simple possession of crack cocaine.

Now, thousands of federal inmates will benefit when a change goes into effect Tuesday changing sentences for crack cocaine to be closer to the penalties for powder cocaine. This summer the U.S. Sentencing Commission, which sets federal sentencing policy, decided to apply the act to inmates already serving time.

The commission estimates about 12,000 inmates could benefit overall. The effect of the change will largely be spread out over the next several years, with inmates getting an average of three years shaved off. But nearly 1,900 prisoners are estimated to be eligible for immediate release Tuesday.

Obama is finally delivering on his promise of some sensible policy reform for drug sentencing. Now, he just needs to order the Justice Department to follow his directive which was supposed to keep the DEA from investigating and prosecting medical marijuana dispensaries which are operating legally under state law, but in violation of federal marijuana prohibition. Come Obama, deliver on that promise and quit wasting taxpayer money prosecuting legal marijuana dispensaries.

If a person is involved in an accident and the officer suspects alcohol, he can test and enter on the record and put the person in jail.If an officer suspects a driver is high at a wreck, he can order hair or pee testing and the driver can be charged with "contribulatory neglegence' which makes him partially responsible for the accident even though the other driver was 100% at fault like running a stop sign and T-boning the stoner's car. Doesn't seem fair to some but that's the way it is.

You do have the choice! And that choice gives you the right to suffer the consequences if you get caught. It's up to you.

An impairment "WE" don't need. Here is a suggestion-you decide what is good for your body and I will worry about mine. Why do you prohibitionist think that you know what is best for the masses? You don't have a right to dictate other people's medicinal, recreational, or food intake just as I can't dictate yours

To a point yes, but having it in your system can get you fired if you happen to get busted in a random pee test. If your company is not random testing, you are probably not covered under workman's comp insurance. If you hurt yourself or someone hurts you without that coverage on the job, you're toast.
