A new blog

I don’t promote other blogs very often, and I probably should do a better job of reminding people about some of the excellent drug policy reform blogs out there, so I’m feeling a bit embarrassed about giving a link to Marijuana News, which is really quite new, having started up this month.

But when a blog that young can come up with writing like this…

George Soros tells us we should legalize marijuana altogther for our pleasure. Its less harmful than tobacco and alcohol. Are we as a society that gullable? The damages caused by alcohol and tobacco is unfathomable and yet we are seriously considering adding another substance to the list.

Is our society heading towards a true Sci-fi/Thriller existence, where everyone is stonned while the puppetiers control our lives?

… and it has a comments section… How can I resist?

How often do we get the intense pleasure of finding a prohibitionist with a comments section? Sure, this blogger is anonymous, but still…

Now, please, please, please don’t ruin the fun for everyone else and scare him/her away with heavy-handed vitriol. Keep it to light banter if you can.

[Thanks, Tom]

    “IT IS A MONEY MAKING SCEEM THAT PART OF AMERICA IS FALLING FOR.”

    what an idiot.

    What is it with the prohibition crowd and George Soros? I hear his name being used almost as a curse word by those people all the time.

    Pete:

    “keep it to light banter IF YOU CAN”… 😉

  • kaptinemo

    Alright, I stopped by there and left a calling card. Hopefully we’ll have a prohib with intellectual honesty, and not the pretense of it. We’ll see…

  • […] very unique new marijuana blog is just starting to get noticed on the web and I want to make sure everyone gets a chance to check it out in case it disappears […]

    Practically every story on that blog makes at least one gross mistake. The writer ASSUMES. He doesn’t include facts to back up his assumptions, which is the true sign of a narrow-field prohib.

  • it sounds very much like our gal Linda… or someone very close. John English perhaps?

  • stan back

    If it is legalized how will pharmaceutical companies continue to profit off us and poison us?!

  • @Jon Doe: one of my good friends once went to a conference hosted by (I forget the name) one of those drug free world organizations. She saw a lot of this Soros bashing. As she put it they didn’t have anything substantial in their presentations, but this one guy just suddenly blurts out that this George Soros guy is … and ya better go sit down … an ATHEIST, hence without moral guidance of any kind! And that’s why every legalizer is pretty much evil.

    I think that’s it, and the fact that he’s money.

    lol: It’s a SCEEM.

    Kapt? “have a prohib with intellectual honesty,
    and not the pretense of it.”

    If they had intellectual honesty could they be prohibs?

    They’re the frickin Borg…

    “You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile. You will disarm your weapons, and escort us to Sector 001. If you attempt to intervene, we will destroy you. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile. We are Borg. ”

    Pete, Its Marijuana in The News @ cannabis-deception.blogspot.

    I thought Richard Cowan had the Marijuana News site, and still does.
    I’d normally skip this scum or dump ammo, they’re pretty mindless. The title caught my interest. Now I have to wash my computer.

    Beepeepepbeep This just in…
    Lou Dobbs petitions the president to place a large dome over the Continental US to stop smugglers, paying for it by selling Alaska and Hawaii. Lynch lynches the sick… Cannafornia bound…

    Drug smugglers are endlessly creative along border

    SAN MIGUEL, Ariz. – A pickup truck in Mexico pulls up to the 5-foot vehicle barriers that make up part of the multibillion-dollar border fence. A retractable ramp is extended from the truck, forming a bridge up and over the barriers.

    Then, a second pickup — this one loaded with a ton of marijuana — rolls over the bridge and into the U.S.

    Calif. Lawmaker Holds Hearing on Legalizing Pot

    House Overrides, Senate Upholds MMJ Veto
    After three months of private lobbying, no minds were changed in the Senate as today’s 14-10 vote to override Lynch’s veto of the bill (HB 648) came up two votes shy of the mandatory, two-thirds majority.

    The non-Richard-Cowan Marijuana News site is so ridiculous it almost looks like a hoax. If it’s a hoax, it’s a good one. Our side can really use people who can think and write like idiots and who can generate appalling impressions of the opposition.

  • I wonder what would happen if the feds spent a small portion of their war on drugs budget on treatment instead of incarceration? Say 10% to treatment facilities and R&D.

    If the drug dealers had less people to sell it to what do you think would happen?
