Advancing in the drug war

States decriminalize recreational use of weed. Obama’s DOJ will crush them for that.

    Why would they do that? Didn’t their boss admit to using clinical-test-sized amounts of weed as a Teenager and college student? Sauce for the goose and all that. . .

    You think the cartels are gonna hold still for the state government cutting in on their action like that?

    Rick: The cheapest thing they can do is lobby politicians to ensure continued market barriers and protectionist policies.

    It’s really just Baptsits and Bootlegers for the 21st century.

    Like Saudis and Greens working to block US and Canadian oil.

    Jack, even cheaper: Have the press agitate “For the Chill-Dren!!” a la William Hearst.

    I submit it’s cheaper to agitate a reporter than it is to buy a politician.

    In Belgium, judges used their scarce time to prosecute only violent and other serious crimes, drug offenses kept being pushed back and back on the docket until the statute of limitations had expired. Eventually they stopped putting soft drug offenses on there altogether.

    Then cops figured: “I’m not gonna waste my time writing these people up”, and started to ignore adult cannabis use. They too had better use for their time.

    Not much later, the government (yes we did have one at that time) made those policies officially permissible.

    Legislation never would have gotten it through, but but shear necessity it did happen.

  6. Jack Says:

    Were in the US the “For the CHILDREN” would simply get more cops and judges hired.

    And failing that would simply have the drug crimes get the higher priority than the hardline mala in se charges.

    Priorities people!

    Rick: As far as I know, A) “the cartels” aren’t that organized as a group and B) most of the dope in the US is home-grown and at a smaller, less-organized level.

    Not all of it, but most of it. (Yeah, talk of “big farms in California taken over by MS-13!!!”, but that’s still a giant minority.)

    I do note, though, that contra the writeup, that article’s not about accomplished decriminalization of use, but of active legalization of use and production. Which is, from a civil rights and ending-the-drug-war perspective, even better.

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
