End this madness!

 There are only two kinds of people who continue to support Prohibition.

 

 #1 The ignorant. If you do some research you will see that Prohibition actually makes it EASIER for your kids to get drugs NOT harder!

 

 #2 Those that profit from it. Prohibitionists are fighting legalization tooth and nail under the guise of "protecting our kids" when in fact it's more like "Protecting agency funding"!

 They are not trying to protect anything other then their jobs!

 

 Stop Gestapo tactics that gives law enforcement the right to storm into your private dwelling with their guns blazing, killing your dogs, and traumatizing your kids!

 

 Start with the REGULATION of Marijuana. Legalize and it will be HARDER not easier for your kids to get it!

Bravo Manjón-Cabeza!

What an articulate and well constructed paper, Manjón-Cabeza champions a cause that millions support around the world. Reason will win the day eventually.

end to drug prohibition

We should have never allowed the police become involved in peoples personel medical problems.If a person has a problem with substance abuse it is a issue that should be handled by that person and their doctor not a cop.And no govt agency should ever have a say in what medicine a doctor feels is best for treating a patient. The founding fathers of what has no become amerika knew this and prohibition is as Unamerican as it get's . [[If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.]]” - Thomas Jefferson

On strawmen and drug induced idiocy.

Peruvian President Alan García said Monday he is absolutely opposed to drug legalization and warned that legalizing marijuana will take society down the path toward euthanizing the elderly. 

"I think this (drug legalization) is like opening the way for the degradation of human beings, because if we legalize marijuana as a soft drug then we will legalize cocaine as hard drugs, and finally we will also legalize the elimination of the elderly, as in the old societies, because they can no longer contribute to the production,"

What self respecting journo reports this shite.... without even as much as questioning the rational or evidence let alone the authority of such twaddle.
