The following article from The Voice of Russia sounds even more entertaining if you imagine it being spoken by Yakov Smirnoff.
U. S plans to legalize marijuana.
There is a term in the U.S.: “war on drugs” which describes the stateâ€™s attempt to wage war on the spread of drugs. The campaign is having a telling effect not only on the stateâ€™s budget. 80 per cent of all the prisoners in American jails were convicted for marijuana offence.
And most of them come out of prisons mentally damaged. Against this backdrop, 50 per cent of Americans are calling for the legalization of Indian hemp. This is not because Americans have become more liberal-minded, says Bill Piper, Chief of the â€œDrug Policy Allianceâ€.
In the past 50 years, the numbers of supporters of the â€œpoisonâ€ has been increasing steadily, and towards the end of the 90s, a law which allowed obtaining of marijuana on a prescription, in a free medical marijuana dispensary, was adopted in 17 American states. […]
An organization called â€œLaw emforces against banâ€ has been formed. The members have proposed legalizing all the existing drugs, arguing that this could help protest children from prohibited substances, remove drugs from the streets, and keep more effective records of drug addicts.
The English makes my eyes bleed.
Yeah. The English is interesting.
What’s also interesting is the “subtle” ‘look how these foreign influences from a failed nation are meddling in our strong society’ spin at the end. Is it just me? Maybe it’s the English. 😉
They’re giving away free medicinal grade cannabis in 17 States? How the heck did I miss that? Is it too late to get in line?
Shhhhh!…That’s a SECRET. Please don’t tell anybody.
Now we know where Michelle Leonhart has been getting her information.
“An organization called ‘Law emforces against ban’ has been formed.”
I certainly hope he means “Law Enforcement Against Prohibition” as that is actually a group dedicated to what he claims.
Stuff from languages that use different alphabets just doesn’t translate into English well. What was the name of that guy who just got voted out of office in Libya? Gaddafi? Ghadafi? Khadafi? Kadahfi? Qaddafi? My spell check software votes for Qaddafi.
