government weed

Psychedelics are illegal not because a loving government is concerned that you may jump out of a third story window. Psychedelics are illegal because they dissolve opinion structures and culturally laid down models of behaviour and information processing. They open you up to the possibility that everything you know is wrong.

A reminder that you can be denied food stamps and other government assistance when you’re a felon. So let’s review this: as a felon you are unable to live in most homes and apartments. As a felon most employers will not hire you. As a felon, you don’t deserve food, low cost medical coverage, or money to help you get your life together.

You were making better money doing what made you a felon and if you have to go back to that I don’t even blame you.

On January 1, 1976, the iconic “HOLLYWOOD” sign was altered to read “Hollyweed” by the late Danny Finegood of Los Angeles and a few of his college friends. The stunt — celebrating the decriminalisation of marijuana in California — got worldwide publicity at the time.

To accomplish the stunt, Finegood and his buds used ropes and sheets, and reportedly spent only around 50 bucks for the materials. The prank was a class project while he was an art major at Cal State Northridge. (Yes, he got an “A” for the project.)

Finegood considered himself an environmental artist, not a vandal. In a letter to the L.A. Times in 1983, he said of the “Hollyweed” sign: “An artist’s role throughout history has been to create representations of the culture he exists in. By hanging four relatively small pieces of fabric on the landmark, we were able to change people’s perception of the Hollywood sign.”

Writer David Batterson was so knocked out by the event that he wrote lyrics to a song and his friend, former radio DJ and musician Mark Giles, a resident of Santa Barbara, wrote the music. They called the song, you guessed it, “Hollyweed, USA.”

I don’t think enough people realise that if alcohol was discovered now it would be classified as a Class A drug.
That shit is poison. Your body literally throws it back up if you drink too much and people have died from drinking a bottle of it.
It’s in the same category as fucking heroin and crack and has been rated the 5th most harmful drug.
5TH.
BEFORE MOTHER FUCKING KETAMINE.
KET-A-MINE.

But weed, which is the 9th most harmful, used as medicine and you would need to smoke 2 tonnes of it in 45 minutes in order to die, nah, that’s illegal.
*Applause*

One of the problems that the marijuana reform movement consistently faces is that everyone wants to talk about what marijuana does, but no one ever wants to look at what marijuana prohibition does. Marijuana never kicks down your door in the middle of the night. Marijuana never locks up sick and dying people, does not suppress medical research, does not peek in bedroom windows. Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could.
