    Would it make the black community feel better if we legalized pot? Seriously, we throw people in prison for doing a drug. This costs us billions of dollars that we could otherwise use to focus on more serious crimes.

    I also think it isn't very fair...We should focus on violent crimes like murder, rape and robbery.

    Do you agree? Would this help the black community????

    The drug war is essentially part of the race war.

    Nobody will admit this.

    I say, separate the races.

    We save on drug war costs. They go free.

    As it is, life is still better for them with us. Free money.

    Yes, you say that over and over and over (you say nothing else), but it's not going to happen, YOU PATHETIC FUCKING COWARD. If YOU want separation, then YOU get the FUCK our of MY country, you worthless loser.

    Well, considering that the whole reason that pot became illegal in the first place was because of a white racist FBI man named Anslinger who wanted to figure out a way to lock up all the blacks and hispanics. So, when he found out that the main consumers of cannabis were blacks and hispanics, he lobbied Congress to make it illegal, and he was helped out by the people of Hollywood who produced his propaganda film "Reefer Madness".

    Not only would it help the black community, but it would help the nation as a whole. After you harvest the buds (the part of the plant you want to smoke), there's still a bunch of plant material left over in the form of the stalk and the leaves, which can be used to produce canvas, biofuel, paper and food.

    Well, since you're such a tough guy, why don't you go challenge the DEA to a cage match to decide the matter, clown?

    Actually, I don't really have to if a person is smart enough to spell "anslinger" and "cannabis" and "reefer madness" into Google.

    Send me your phone number, and I'd be more than willing to challenge YOU to a cage match.

    Know anything about the 8 limbed method? I do.

    yeh, pot should be legalized.

    the harm from criminalization is worse than the harm from smoking it.

    Anslinger (who wanted to be more powerful than Hoover) made thing very difficult by getting drug laws introduced into peace and commerce treaties between the US and other countries. could be done though

    No, legalizing crack, herion, rape, murder, welfare fraud, car jacking, drug dealing and failure to pay child support would help the black community by keeping 33% of their men out of jail and prison and off probation or parole. This would have the added benefit of saving the Tax Payers the billions of dollars a year it costs us to catch, prosecute, imprison and guard these people.

    Would legalizing psychotropic meds help you?
