Very good post, thanks for the quotes. I have never obeyed the law against marijuana and I'm glad I didn't. Cancer runs in my family and I only have a sister left and she is dealing with it right now. I have never been diagnosed with it, my father died from prostate cancer 25 years ago. My whole family was against using marijuana and they constantly made fun of me for using it, my sister still does."If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so." - Thomas Jefferson.
The battle to end Marijuana Prohibition is but one part of the War to win back the U.S. Constitution
The original argument for marijuana prohibition "Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.”— Harry J. Anslinger.
Prohibitionists fall into one of two categories: 1.) Under-informed citizens & 2.) Profiteers of the Drug War.
"There comes a time when a moral man can't obey a law which his conscience tells him is unjust." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
"It's easier to fool people than it is to convince them they've been fooled." ~ Mark Twain
I guess my family fits your #1 remark but they didn't have modern research results to go by, just propaganda. This is what makes it hard for me to understand all the people who still use a 70 year old argument and refuse to educate themselves about something that could very well save their lives someday. On top of that, if they had their way they would deny me any right to do so. You are right about our constitution being in jeopardy, everyone wants to be a dictator.
