  • Just me.

    You ended the war? So can we go smoke one without getting arrested? No? Then you didnt END The Drug War

  • strayan

    The Lancet have bought it: Link

  • claygooding

    Doesn’t that face generate a feeling of confidence and trust? Just having that picture in my mind will allow me to sleep better,knowing that he is around to protect me.
    Luckily,he is 1800 miles away.

    Expletive, expletive expletive expletive!

    Thanks Pete. I needed to get that out of my system.

  • denmark

    Yes allan420, that does fit Kerli-boy.

    And how wonderful it would be if Prohibition were truly over.

  • He just had some of this stuff – Link – and he’s now a zombie.

  • As much as I won’t ever pee for work again (fabts) I wouldn’t take a job that made me become a public liar…

    … c’mon Gil… I’ll bet your fellow former Seattle PD Chief Norm Stamper would gladly meet and debate the drug war/Prohibition II with you in a public, televised national debate. The issue is obviously of a scope that it needs national exposure of diverse viewpoints, especially the voice of protest. The eloquent voices of protest that just won’t shut up. We’re everywhere Gil and we own the net. That’s why all your Prohibition teat sucking orgs hide behind inaccessible websites, ’cause they can’t withstand the heat in the kitchen.

    And personally Gil… I’d like to hear your comments in public on the Missouri SWAT raid and an explanation of why it’s important to have our police raiding homes, shooting dogs and scaring kids over what is provably just what Judge Young said it is – one of the safest therapeutic substances known to man.

    After that we can move on to Donald Scott, Jennifer Odom and crew, Charity and Veronica Bowers, Kathryn Johnston… and the rest of the failed drug war and it’s innocent victims. C’mon Gil. Use those names in your next oped. What happens when we tell their stories (and all the others) to the public, Gil?

    @strayan – Unbelievable, The Lancet! Please go read their journal article A new dawn for drug policy in the USA. Journalism 101: the ONDCP Strategy ≠ their budget. OK, so who is going to write a letter to The Lancet to counter their propaganda?

  • Scott

    Their policy is so unpopular, they have to pretend it is over.

    Next stop? The real end to this massive corruption.

  • permanentilt

    The good thing about this is that if the rest of the world thinks we are changing policies it might get them talking more about harm reduction & legalization, even if we actually are not.

  • darkcycle

    Drug war over? The warriors are still out there, with their guns and absurd laws, doing permanant damage to families in the name of prohibition. No, Kurli, I haven’t seen the terms of your surrender yet. And I don’t feel any less a target, with my wife and child and mortgage, and reg’lur job. Given the chance you would still send your thugs to trash everything I’ve spent 55 years building. F***K YOU. F***k Amerikkka.

  • Just me.

    I share that sentiment Darkcycle.

    I have a good life, they would trash it over ONE JOINT!

    Nope …the war on the people isnt over.

    Come on GIL, prove its over! Tell us the federal government wont arrest anyone over pot, then maybe we can move on and decide what the do with hard drugs…like meth. Figure out a REAL solution for over doses and incarceration(ruining of your life).
