Sometimes I find myself speechless at the bizarre lengths some can go in the stupidity that they attempt to disseminate.
The latest is from some site called Full Disclosure, which has a press release and video story called “The Dark Side of Legalizing Marijuana”
What caught my attention is this reference in their blurb to Los Angeles Sherriff’s Sgt. Richard Valdemar:
Valdemar predicts that eventual legalization of marijuana will corrupt California worse than what happened in Chicago in the days of Al Capone and prohibition.
My head hurts.
So… he’s saying that ending marijuana prohibition will be like the problems of having alcohol prohibition? Surely, they must have gotten that wrong.
Well, they did. Kind of.
It appears that Sgt.
Voldemort Valdemar is actually saying that legalizing marijuana will be like the rise of Al Capone after the repeal of alcohol prohibition.
Valdemar in the video, actually claims that ending alcohol prohibition didn’t hurt Capone at all, and that ending marijuana prohibition will just mean a bigger industry for the cartels to control.
Now the lady doing the interview is such a ditz that I wouldn’t be surprised that she’d believe such nonsense. But anyone with brain cells?
