Yeah it's bullshit. I know how easily people can be manipulated about stuff like that. I never touched a drug or partied until I got into college (luckily college can overcome all your inhibitions and other stuff). One of the reasons I never really tried drugs was because I didn't know anything about them. And if your only source of drug "facts" is from a 30 second ad on tv saying how drugs are the worst thing since Hitler, then you're pretty much screwed. I noticed that there are more and more anti-drug commercials than ever. I'll see one almost every other commercial break. Something tells me they are getting really desperate. These kids are our future. The more they get brainwashed, the better they are off. Since prohibition isn't really getting results, all they need is brainwashing to lower drug use. Then they'll pat themselves on the back and say what a great job prohibition is doing.

When is reefer madness going to end?

That's why it's everyone's responsability to get the word out that the government lies. If these kids continue into adulthood believing the lies, then we don't have a chance in fixing the problem.

Creating false facts and distorted statistics is lying .

"Marijuana kills brain cells."

"Most heavy marijuana users get cancer at the age of 26."

"Marijuana has no medical value."

The government has been making up lies about drugs for 70 years, and they are still at it.

But no, you shouldn't fight lies with more lies. We don't have to. The truth is on our side.

compare the u.s. government to te
catholic church.

they both know that a few of their
policies and very, very wrong

but admitting any wrongdoing tarnishes
their 'credibility' and people who have
this blind faith in them may start to
question their other aspects.

True, and I've noticed the advertising for recruitment in the military (USA) is higher than ever also.

continuing a failed pointless war in the hope that no one will notice doesn't help the gov't's credibility much.

we've got a war on pot because the sad truth is that most americans support it. a politician would lose votes, not gain them, by trying to change the laws right now.

people've got to change their minds first. it won't be long now i think... depends on how things go up north.

I just find the ad beside the article with the picture of the "loose your tummy" and a women showing her near anorexic stomach ironic...

Man, this is the way it has ALWAYS been.  Ever sinse humans have lived in societies... a group or groups are singled out and persecuted for the faults of the community, and as long as the blame is away form the majority people are happy...its nothing new... :frown:

theres also the fact that the drug war generates billions of dollars in revenue for this country. Think about how many unemployed people there would be in the corrections department if drugs were legal. Thats only the tip of the iceberg.

Grow them, and tax the shit out of them like cigarettes or alcohol, and not only would you employ those people, you'd generate revenue for the Gov't.

There must be something we don't know. Like maybe the economy would collapse or something. Do you actually think the government doesn't know what would happen if they legalized? I think the drug laws have little to do with the actual drugs and taking them. I haven't really put much thought in the implicatiosn but for one thing all of the black market drug dealers lose their jobs. I have no idea how many drug dealers there actually are in the US, but there are probably a lot more than you think. I'm really not sure how spending goes, but police and other agencies would have a hell of a lot less to do with their time. Maybe they could go after real criminals for a change. The DEA would be gone. That's a lot of jobs gone. I don't think the US government is actually stupid. They know prohibition doesn't get rid of drugs. Wouldn't you like to know the real reasons prohibition exists? There's probably a lot we don't know.

Well to a certain degree they can guess what could be a few outcomes. There's no telling what complete legalization could do. Complete drug legalization in the US is so unlikely that it seems like it would happen the same day Jesus Christ returned.
