  1. There's fuckton of alt-right trolls employed by Charlie Kirk's Turning Point USA pretending to be progressives and tearing into Biden non stop. They're easy to spot because all they do is attack and yell VOTE GREEN. Never any strategy on how to win, just division crap.

  2. So allow people to be stupid and used by the system? no thanks. Using weed for medicine is fine but not for more zombies, do you know how cheap and easy access weed would be vs cigarettes…big difference.

  3. Pakman is very annoying. You cannot start from the "incremental" position in politics. You have to start from the most extreme position and negotiate down. If you start from incremental progress you end up with with a negotiation that is too far right wing. I really hate when he does this. Look at Obamacare. It was supposed to go even further than it ended up doing.

  4. I think we should legalize all drugs but make it so you cant have or do drugs if you have kids. I aslo think that your only allowed to do those drugs on your own property unless somebody allows you to those drugs on there property.

  5. Hopefully they can legalize medical marijuana. It actually helps ppl with seziures, anxiety, depression, and the list goes on. When I was discharged I was living in California n my Dr gave me the okay for a medical card. I came back with seizures n a limp cuz I was in constant pain. I used my card until my seizures stopped n once I was well enough that I could move back to TX I did. I haven't had a seizure in yrs n I never liked feeling high but the dispensaries helped me find things that would stop my seizures n my pain without me feeling all out of it.

  6. “…marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest, therapeutically active substances known to man.”
    –Francis Young (DEA’s own Judge 1988)

     "Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use…”
    – Jimmy Carter (U.S.President)

     “Congress should definitely consider decriminalizing possession of marijuana… We should concentrate on prosecuting the rapists and burglars who are a menace to society.”
    – Dan Quayle (U.S. Representative & Vice President)

    "Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could."
    “The anti-marijuana campaign is a cancerous tissue of lies, undermining law enforcement, aggravating the drug problem, depriving the sick of needed help and suckering well intentioned conservatives and countless frightened parents.”
     – William F. Buckley Jr. (American conservative author & commentator)
     
    "The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world."
    – Dr. Carl Sagan (American Cosmologist, Astrobilologist, author & science communicator)

     “You bet I did -— and I enjoyed it.” ….when asked if he had ever smoked marijuana.
    – Michael Bloomberg (New York City Mayor)

    "Studies have consistently failed to establish the existence of a link between the harshness of a country’s drug laws and its levels of drug use."
    – Kofi Annan (U.N. Secretary General)

     "Pot is a better drug than alcohol. I'll prove it to you. You're at a ball game or a concert, and someone's really violent and aggressive and obnoxious, are they drunk or are they smoking pot?"
    “Why is pot against the law? It wouldn't be because anyone can grow it, and therefore you can't make a profit off it, would it?”
    “…It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit … unnatural?”
    -Bill Hicks (Satirist, Social Critic, Stand-Up Comedian)

     "If the words "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" don't include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp it was written on."
    – Terence McKenna  (American ethnobotanist, psychonaut, author, advocate for responsible use of natural psychedelic plants)

  7. Unfortunately, now they're backing off of it a day later, saying they want to push the issue down the road to after the election. I think we know from history where this is going. I will put pressure on my senators and representative to continue supporting their original decriminalization position. Everyone else should be doing the same.

  8. It creates a consistent federal framework for States to follow, and when all of the right wing mythology is revealed as false, the next steps become easier. Also it unclogs the justice system by removing trivial offences.

  9. Hey an actual policy position, and who gives a FUCK about the right-wing complaints? Every SINGLE one of those "humans" would already have been voting for Trump. But I don't understand how I get to USE pot if the possession is still illegal.

  10. i said he was talking this way since before his nomination and I've been screamed at that he was totally right wing Conservative on this, hopefully people will start seeing bidden for what he is now and that is a damn good bridge to the future of the democratic party!

  11. Crimializing marijuana was part of a right wing strategy to demonize certain groups. Read the statements by the people who put together the southern strategy for nixon, they overtly say that. See, right wing is more authoritarian, and when things are bad, you can never blame the powerful. You have to blame someone powerless. Which is why demonization is needed. and some people do it becuase they're useful idiots, but in this case Increased criminalization was consciously part of an explicit strategy to demonize, they say it, in their words.
