Get ready for more "your brain on drugs" ads as big pharma and big religion intensify their war against their cannabis-stuffed scarecrows.
Vote yes on legal pot.
In my general reading of history, certainly not research level tho, i have come across writings that indicate the cotton industry lobbied to kill the hemp industry. Cannabis War was pushed by white racists back then and pharma now (at least until they can corner the govt research and product development fortunes). The CIA makes money selling cocaine on the black market (and blackmail leverage). And why cant we grow our own tobacco? What the heck? For a country built on rugged individualism and self sufficient cooperative market, why cant we stop politicians from creating black market fortunes for the elite while suppressing individual rights?
Big pharma got the dope licenses in Arkansas. It's all the same now.
I am outraged that so many would want marijuana legalized for recreational use. We don't need any more drugged people on the highways and raising children. Alcohol destroys lives and families. Marijuana could do the same. Children turn away from drugged parents. It is not documented what it does to the brain, but it will do some harm, especially to younger people. We already have too many mentally ill people. I would say to people, "Put on your big boy pants and cope with life as it is."
