Just What We Need

Unsurprisingly, a WaPo opinion columnist thinks that we need to really commit to more war in the War on Drugs™. You know, because over 40 years, an untold number of deaths, trillions of dollars, and zero effect on drug use (which doesn’t even question the idea that keeping people from getting high is a morally […]

A Crossroads

One idea that I’ve espoused since the beginning of the newfound limited government movement from the right is that so-called conservatives will come to a crossroads; a point at which they must decide what is more important: small government and individual liberty, or the enforcement of their moral agenda. Fortunately, it seems that some conservatives […]

Anyone who thinks that Obama, because of his cool demeanor and past history of drug usage, would be more liberal with drug policy is a fucking idiot. Obama’s Drug Czar explains: Today, Californians recognized that legalizing marijuana will not make our citizens healthier, solve California’s budget crisis, or reduce drug related violence in Mexico [. […]

A Welcome Step

It’s refreshing to see an overtly conservative leaning publication come out in favor of California’s Proposition 19 which would make marijuana legal for recreational use. The American Spectator: I find the current consensus against legalized marijuana nearly as baffling. As Conrad Black argued the other day at National Review, it’s pretty clear that our current […]

Here’s an Idea

Let’s continue to support the arrest hundreds of thousands of people a year, SWAT raids, and puppycide with our immoral War on Drugs so that we can maintain artificially high pot prices for a few people who operate in the dark. NPR: Another grower named Jay doesn’t want to use his last name because part […]

Sheriff Lee Baca in an interview with Robert Faturechi of the L.A. Times: Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said Friday his deputies’ marijuana enforcement would not change even if Proposition 19, which would legalize the drug in California, passes Nov. 2. “Proposition 19 is not going to pass, even if it passes,” Baca said […]

Douchebag of the Week: Eric Holder

Eric Holder in a letter to ex-DEA chiefs: We will vigorously enforce the CSA against those individuals and organizations that possess, manufacture or distribute marijuana for recreational use, even if such activities are permitted under state law Fuck. You. The residents of a state explicity say they want marijuana to be legalized, yet in your […]

Question of the Day

How is it that liberals can demand that the federal government stay out of health care decision-making when it concerns medical marijuana, yet fully support Obamacare which co-opts individual health care decisions?

Fed Hypocrisy, a Short Monologue

The Federal Government (at Arizona): You cannot presume that you should enforce federal law, despite the explicit wishes of the residents of your state. The Federal Government, due to its behemoth size, slowly turns right while wiping drool from its chin and engages in a bout of fat-man breathing from the effort. It finally catches […]

From the Marijuana Policy Project: Back in May, when Kentucky Republican Rand Paul defeated an establishment candidate to win his party’s nomination for the U.S. Senate, I pointed out that one of the issues Paul used to win over voters was his support of medical marijuana laws. Now, in a telling political move, the son […]

Salt in the Wounds

Not only do we have ridiculous laws prohibiting marijuana use, the system is stacked against us by the use of shitty-fuck field tests which are iffy at best. The Duquenois test was developed in the late 1930s by a French pharmacist, Pierre Duquénois, while he was working for the United Nations division of narcotics. In […]

I Wonder. . .

Apparently libertards are all for drug laws emanating at the federal level. I wonder how quickly their position will change when asked about drug laws in relation to California? Oh, wait. I guess I don’t have to wait too long at all.

“It’s Where the Money Is”

Justin Scheck via The Wall Street Journal: Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko, his budget under pressure in a weak economy, has laid off staff, reduced patrols and even released jail inmates. But there’s one mission on which he’s spending more than in recent years: pot busts. The reason is simple: If he steps up his […]

Equal Protection My ( | )

For just one second, I’d like you to imagine a land in which you had your rights as a parent taken away for taking legally prescribed medications.  “No way!” most would say, “That place is fucking gulag!”  And I would absolutely agree.  But apparently we have such a hard-on for the War on Drugs in […]

“Indiscriminate”

Kareem Fahim via The New York Times: After five days of sporadic fighting in the capital, the Jamaican police have still not found the object of their raid, a gang leader wanted in the United States on gun and drug charges, but the death toll has risen to at least 70 and complaints are mounting […]

The Hypocrisy of it All

Julian Sanchez via Newsweek: we now take for granted that the interstate-commerce power constitutes a blank check, not just when Congress seeks to rectify gross historical iniquity, but for such purposes as overriding state decisions to permit local cultivation of medical marijuana. I wonder how quickly the classic Libertard argument that states rights is a […]

Gene Healy via The Washingtion Examiner: Like many middle-class kids, the president briefly flirted with drug culture before putting away childish things and becoming a high achiever. (Indeed, looking at what he has achieved since, you sometimes wish pot killed motivation as effectively as drug-war propagandists claim.) The president lacks the moral authority to lock […]
