Tommy Chong is interviewed on The Young Turks and he seems outright optimistic about the future after the votes in Washington and Colorado.
“Huge, huge difference. It’s going to bring about the legalization of hemp, for instance […] It’s also going to empty the jails, and we’re probably going to disband the DEA. Yay! […] Washington and Colorado are just the toe into the water. The whole country is following.”
Just the thought of the U.S. without the DEA is really quite stirring.
The DEA can still be the Drug Enforcement Admin,,but instead of killing dogs and imprisoning citizens they can quality check and regulate the drug manufacturing companies selling legal drugs they failed to stop.
They won’t be allowed guns or airplanes,,they get a clipboard and a pen and a government owned pov to drive to work,,,
How about giving those higher paying jobs to general-labouring stable hands across the country instead. Then the former special agents can fill in for their work-gloved positions as the Dung Enforcement Agency.
Unions dude,,they got unions,of course if the gov’t defaults on the retirement programs and benefits,they will either lose a bunch of agents or the agents will figure out other sources to seek retirement funding,,,unions
I like the idea that they’ll be hiring underage teens to do the “buy busts” inside stores. Teens will be enforcing our drug laws, instead of SWAT teams.
Just a thought but how long before we can cut out the middleman and privatize congress?
Hasn’t that already happened??!
Well, they give money to the alcohol industry for whiskey. They already are, aren’t they?
“The Department of Agriculture, meanwhile, has promoted another message. The USDA gave $1.3 million in 2012 to the National Confectioners Association to promote its sugary sweets abroad, and $250,000 to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States to promote whiskey and other alcohols.”
Sounds like drug dealing to me.
Tommy, I gotta wonder. That’s quite the optimistic appraisal.
Too ironic and beautiful to pass up. Just have a look, and when you’re done laughing your asses off, remember it was dc who brought this here. (warning, only slightly off topic)
Oh, I *really* want to see the video!
Oh, me too, me too. Don’t worry, it’ll surface.
if we take away cannabis from the dea theyll just “diversify into kidnapping and counterfeit goods”
Diversify into kidnapping? That’s their bread and butter.
Why d’ya think they call it “duped” ?
