Hey Mr. President: “Free The Weed.”

Share:

As many of you are aware, I do not sell or smoke marijuana, but I do have issues with government control over a misunderstood and misrepresented plant.

Because of this, I have decided to write several posts concerning cannabis to get the word out to others who don’t partake but have no hang-ups about cannabis being used both medically and recreationally. Here’s my agenda:

  1. Renew interest in the legalization of cannabis amongst non-users. Prohibition of this plant affects us all.
  2. Present information that debunks popular misconceptions and myths about cannabis.
  3. Get people working together to create a concentrated effort for legalizing cannabis on all fronts, enhancing the chance of the movement’s success.

I know that some of you will say no way, and others will claim it’s been tried and that there’s little chance for victory. My response to you: Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Marijuana quotes from politicians:

“Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself, and where they are they should be changed.” -Jimmy Carter

“When I was a kid I inhaled frequently. That was the point.” -Obama

“Make the most of the Indian Hemp Seed and sow it everywhere.” -George Washington

“Congress should definitely consider decriminalizing possession of marijuana….We should concentrate on prosecuting the rapists and burglars who are a menace to society.” -U.S. Representative Dan Quayle, March 1977

It is up to you and me. Say nothing, do nothing, nothing will happen.

    I would rather it be decriminalized because I think the law should be silent on the subject of marijuana use.

    @J: Thank u J for your comments. I have read several articles on countries that decriminalized marijuana with good results. I agree with u at this time.
    The major emphasis in the U.S. at this time is the legalization of medical marijuana. I do not trust the federal government and wonder how far this will go before something happens to slow down or hurt the legalization process. Hope this works. Time will tell.

    Allow me to offer a different perspective. I live in a place where possessing and growing small amounts of weed are legal. From a legal, policing, and social perspective this definitely has significant advantages over the bad old days of total prohibition. I am also a spiritual therapist. I give therapy to many people who smoke dope. From a spiritual perspective, I don’t recommend smoking dope because it can damage the aura, allowing negativity to interfere.

    @Wal Heinrich: Thank u for your comments. Interesting on what u have to share. How does smoking marijuana allows negativity interfere with a person aura? Please explain.

    If by your word ‘how’ you mean ‘by what mechanism’, I don’t know the answer. I simply know that by observing the aura, which I am blessed to be able to do, there is often damage in the auras of heavy dope smokers. The key factor is how healthy the person is. People who keep fit and healthy don’t seem to be troubled that much, although the aura may take on a greenish tinge. Unhealthy people, on the other hand, can get ‘dark holes’ in the aura that allow negativity in (eg demonics).

    @Iphone scale: Thank u for your comments. The legalization of medical marijuana is happening. Washington D.C. and 17 other states have passed bills for the legalization of medical marijuana. It has been a long time coming, but more change is in the wind.

    I wasted money on cigarettes for quite a long time and giving up ended up being almost impossible. I bought the many quit smoking techniques however none did the trick. Then I saw the electronic cigarettes. The electric cigarette uses a nicotine solution that consists of just nicotine. Absolutely no toxic chemicals at all. They’ve basically made all the difference.
