Reading is fundamental

Some really good reading:

[Thanks, Tom]

bullet image Unthinkable? Repeal drugs laws — a very strong editorial by The Guardian.

bullet image ONDCP on the defensive as drug war exposed to mainstream media critique — an excellent point-by-point takedown by Danny Kushlick at Transform

  • Just me.

    Heres more proof that no matter what the federal government does, kids will find ways of getting “High” .

    So what now? Make eyeballing illegal, a federal offense? Just one more thing to ruin peoples lives. No matter the “drug” , there will be those who will find another way around the “law”. K-2 , salvia, eyeballing,lockerroom, even smoking seeds from common weeds, that “high” will be found…..legally…til its made illegal…then on to the next “high” is found.

    “Maybe that explains the rest of young Barry’s yearbook page, with its “still life” featuring a pack of rolling papers and a shout-out to the “Choom gang.” (“Chooming” is Hawaiian slang for smoking pot.)”

    Is this true? Or just some Conservative BS? If true, that is awesome.

    I don’t know if you can tell, Pete, but the whole thing’s falling apart, at a rate I’ve never seen before.

  • Cannabis

    You mean like this?

    permanentilt, the Urban Dictionary defines ‘choom’ as ‘to smoke weed’ as well as some other stuff.

    It was friggin’ 1979. Since I graduated high school in the class of ’78 I can easily see it as presented. 1978 was the year that cannabis use peaked in the US. Everybody that wasn’t a total social outcast at the very least pretended to smoke cannabis in 1978. Gosh it makes me feel old that the POTUS was a year behind me in school.

    Sorry to say I don’t see that nobody. I read everything possible and pay close attention as ending the war on drugs is a Top Priority in my life. There’s been progress, however that’s measured in terms that do not satisfy me.

    Maybe this will do something more, not sure.

    America deserves a Congress that respects the priorities of the people. Unfortunately, Washington hasn’t been listening. Let’s change that. America Speaking Out is your opportunity to change the way Congress works by proposing ideas for a new policy agenda. Republicans have offered solutions, and we have our principles, but this is a new venue for us to listen to you. So Speak Out.
