not saying that you are a lier on your friends dad being a cop and smoking pot but dude cops have drug tests and what not at least that is what i heard from former cops that i have known and they all agree on lessenin the punishment on marijuana too
im gonna have to disgree with a passion on that due to the fact that there are cops with liscenses that specialize in drug busts and are legally allowed to snort a line of coke if necassary to let the dealor accept him ultimately allowing an easy bust

dude i live in kansas and go hunting in the middle of no where every year and talk to those people. cops are dirty as hell when they have no one to answer to. the evidence locker is always empty and they have helped cover up at least one murder i know of. i saw one with my dad and grandpa on a dirt road that is rarely used carrying a trash bag that looked like a person in it down to the creek. he looked scared as shit when he saw us drive by(as did we cuz we were road huntin)

when it comes down to it, who really gives a damn why other people think that ganja is bad? i know that i dont smoke for other people, i smoke for me. everyone complains about government illegalization of plant matter. yet everyone is content with it at the same time. the conversaitions about the corruption in the lawmaking concerning this issue obviosly show that people have the same beliefs about the marijuana laws and regulations. but they still have yet to change. change requires action. action requires motivation. what exactly is the motivation that will get everyone who thinks thses laws are unjust? does something have to happen like what happened to that teachers friend? why cant we as united people CHANGE the way things are? as most of us know its not the people who have enacted these laws, but the government watching "our best interest". i didnt choose to illegalize marijuana...did you? therefore these laws do not and cannot pertain to you or i. if you cannot tell this post has much more to do with the appointed officials running our country rather than "why weed is bad". this is just one conflict people have with the govenment officials enacting laws that have nothing to do with the common american. as i am sure most of you think the same, i do not believe in total chaos or a lawless nation. but somethings need to change. i, for one, am ready for a revolution. revolutions do not find the timid or meek. the active and motivated find the revolution. do we have to wait for total censorship or government appointed jobs before we decide that they have gone too far? they have gone too far already and WE need to draw the line. ask questions. learn things. and if by going to an anti-illegalization is your motivation to contribute to this revolution then dont hesitate.
so wether your an everyday smoker or an occational party smoker or a non-smoker, dont take this injustice of lawmaking and government order sitting down. get active, ask questions and make those "elected officials" work for us. after all...isnt that who those "elected officials"
are supposed to be working for?

The reason marijuana is illegal can be traced back to ideas represented in Rousseau's The Social Contract, which states that it is the governments responsibility to limit innate freedoms and liberties (such as the ability to put whatever you want into your body) to protect us. Marijuana was criminalized on the idea that the government is essentially protecting us from ourselves. However, the political (Anslinger) and social (Reefer Madness) corruption behind this political action has greatly skewed this reasonable ideal and in my eyes the truth. While government officials do control much of what we do, the voters (not the people) are still in control, the officials make actions based on what they feel is best for a community and if the voters still declare that marijuana should be criminalized for whatever stigmas are behind their reasons, then it is still representative and that is how it will be. I agree that people need to take action as phreakReality mentioned, but I disagree that the reasons why people think ganja is bad is irrelevant. It is important for people to understand why they think marijuana is bad, because when it comes down to it, it wouldn't be hard to convince most people, based on all facts and interpretation, that marijuana has a legitimate place in the American society. Most people have grown up thinking that marijuana is bad for whatever reasons, but changing that perception because it is often based on weak arguments, shouldn't be that difficult.
Why don't they just legalize it?
They will once America opens it eyes.
Till then spread the counter-culture, prove to people that marijuana is a great substance, don't be ashamed of your marijuana use and most importantly get out and VOTE!
Sorry for the long post its a big issue and a lot still needs to be said on it.
