    The clinical evidence just keeps mounting up, folks.

    Peer reviewed scientific studies continue to support the argument that the prohibition of Marijuana is unjustifiable from a medical standpoint.

    The complete failure of the War on Drugs to eradicate drug use, and the disasterous consequences to society as a whole that stem from this war on our civil rights, likewise argue that this prohibition is foolish and misguided.

    It falls to the American people to take lead in ending this pernicious and (I think) evil policy.

    If the people lead the leaders will eventually follow.

    It's really too bad that we've WASTED all this time with a WAR on it,

    rather than STUDYING it.

    Once the research starts, I believe we're going to find a LOT of beneficial uses for it.

    The Controlled Substances Act (CSA) was enacted into law by the Congress of the United States as Title II of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970.

    Schedule I controlled substances

    (1) Schedule I.—

    (A) The drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse.

    (B) The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.

    (C) There is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision."

    Drugs in this schedule include:
    Marijuana.
    Heroin

    Nixon Tapes Reveal Twisted Roots Of Marijuana Prohibition

    White House Conversations Reveal Prejudices, Culture War Behind Nixon's Drug War

    Highlights of Nixon comments on marijuana:

    * Jews and marijuana: "I see another thing in the news summary this morning about it. That's a funny thing, every one of the bastards that are out for legalizing marijuana is Jewish. What the Christ is the matter with the Jews, Bob, what is the matter with them? I suppose it's because most of them are psychiatrists . . ."

    * Marijuana and the culture wars: "You see, homosexuality, dope, immorality in general. These are the enemies of strong societies. That's why the Communists and the left-wingers are pushing the stuff, they're trying to destroy us."

    * Marijuana compared to alcohol: marijuana consumers smoke "to get high" while "a person drinks to have fun." Nixon also saw marijuana leading to loss of motivation and discipline but claimed: "At least with liquor I don't lose motivation."

    * Marijuana and political dissent: ". . . radical demonstrators that were here . . . two weeks ago . . . They're all on drugs, virtually all."

    * Drug education: "Enforce the law, you’ve got to scare them."

    Let me get this straight, If you get drunk and stoned at the same time you're OK...

    Is that what I'm reading here?

    Because we spent some pretty fucked up nights in the early 70's and we weren't exactly OK....
