My comment on the article August 24, 2008 8:28 PM

You-all might be interested in joining the Care2 groups {that I help to host}, The Medical Marijuana Experience, and Hopeful Hempsters.
The emphasis of the one group is on the Medical aspects of Cannabis. {Mis-called in the 1930's by the Mexican slang term "Marijuana", or "Mary Jane" in Spanish, in order to make it seem evil and foreign and low-class.}
In the other group, the emphasis is on the growing of Industrial Hemp, which could SAVE the Family Farmer, SAVE the Economy, and SAVE the Environment by eliminating the necessity to cut down any more trees for paper, etc.
However, both groups FULLY ADVOCATE THE DE-CRIMINALIZATION AND THE USE OF THE CANNABIS PLANT FOR ANY AND ALL PURPOSES; including Recreational and Spiritual and Creativity-inspiring purposes.

Cannabis has been used THRUOUT HISTORY as an often SACRED herb -- it is mentioned in the Bible, as "kanem" -- and, in 5000+ years of human history that we know of, there has been NOT ONE SINGLE CASUALTY DUE TO MARIJUANA/CANNABIS -- NOT ONE SINGLE ONE. You CAN'T say that about alcohol, nicotine, prescription drugs or even aspirin!
Note: not all drug "use" is drug "abuse".

The Civil Rights Movement of the '60's would have brought in a whole lot of new voters, newly-enfranchised Black voters WHO WERE NOT LIKELY AT ALL, TO VOTE FOR REPUBLICANS OR NEO-CONS.
THAT is exactly why the so-called "Drug Wars" were instituted.
DRUGS AS WELL AS WEAPONS WERE BROUGHT INTO GHETTO AREAS SUCH AS OAKLAND; unloaded in plain daylight where anyone could see.
This was so that ghetto residents WOULD GO FOR THE HARDER DRUGS; and KILL EACH OTHER OFF IN TURF WARS.
Making middle-class citizens FEAR them; and making it seem ok to put THOUSANDS OF BLACK YOUNG MEN IN JAIL. This broke up their FAMILIES and had adverse effects on their CHILDREN, too, don't forget.
The govt is using EXACTLY THE SAME TACTICS of making us FEAR so-called "terrorists". Making it ok to harass our Muslim neighbors, while taking Civil Rights away from all of us.
THERE IS NO "TERRORIST THREAT". THE GOVT IS THE TERRORISTS.
THERE IS NO "THREAT" FROM MARIJUANA.

If addiction to hard drugs were treated as the MEDICAL problem it is, rather than as a Police Problem, then addicts could live useful lives while their addictions were being treated. They wouldn't have to rob and be associated with criminals to get their "fix". This is the way it was in the 19th century; when you could get opium and morphine at your local pharmacy.

MARIJUANA IS NOT AN ADDICTIVE OR "HARD" DRUG AT ALL.
