A report mentioned is slate today
points out that anti-marijuana "public service" ads have hilariously caused more people to use marijuana. While this should have left a taste as bitter as bongwater in the mouths of White House drug policy hacks, they instead suppressed the mulit-million dollar report to spend more money on a program they knew wasn't working.
But why the fuck do they care? Of course, marijuana use isn't all good. For example, if someone around you smokes pot, it is much more likely that you will be inconsiderately woken up at 7:00am by horrific coughing and rap music.
In my own life, the DEA brought the hammer down on a huge operation in Boulder. Shockingly, it was one outfit supplying most of Boulder. Not only has this injudicious use of taxpayer money cramped my style for the last 3 weeks, I am livid thinking some DEA stooge is patting him/herself on the back for a job well done. All they have succeeded in is irritating their intellectual better (me).
That tricky DEA is also practicing old school trade protection, using tax payer dollars to fight the marijuana legalization initiative in Colorado.
Is all the heroin and cocaine gone? Aren't there bigger fish to fry than subverting democracy? Not in their eyes. The Bush admin has made marijuana it's number 1 drug war priority saying "Marijuana use, especially during the teen years, can lead to depression, thoughts of suicide and schizophrenia."
Agent Cocksucker, here's hoping you meet your end with a shotgun blast to the face - of delicious bud smoke!
