SHOCKING Drug War Video!
youtube.com/scrowder ^ | 11/26/2012 | Steven Crowder

Posted on 11/26/2012 5:02:37 PM PST by StevenCrowder

Shocking video on the "war on drugs" and whether Marijuana is in fact "harmless." Most shocking is at 4:25 when you see 12-15 year olds smoking weed like it's nothing!

The War on (some) Drugs has done far more harm than all of the pot smoking in history.

Just wait until its normal for 12 year olds to get drunk, assault a grandmother and pass out in the gutter. That’s what the liberal agenda will lead to.

The War on (some) Drugs has done more to violate our Constitutional rights than anything else. Just ask the families of those killed in error due to over-zealous law enforcement officers!

It’s far easier for kids to get drugs when there’s a black market selling them.

Strawman argument. No one calls it “harmless,” except in comparison to drinking and smoking. lt is “victimless,” at least in the same manner as drinking and smoking; is that what you meant to say?

The people who want drugs illegal are those making money keeping it illegal. Cop unions, prison companies, drug cartels.

Legalize it and tax the heck out of it. $50 for a pack of pot. Take the profit out of it for cartels and dealers.

We have 2 million Americans in jail.

Don’t worry, you will see the liberaltarians come out of the woodwork defending the right of every 12-15 year old to smoke pot and become Bevis and Butthead Clones (which is what usually happens, its that “harmless”)

You tell yourself that myth. Legalization is a choice between two evils and both lead to a lost of freedom. There is nothing to cheer about in the choice of the mental retardation of society or the drug war police idiots. The police will still do what they do in but the name of domestic terrorism and gun control instead of drugs.

Humanism will pick off the low hanging fruit in society and kill freedom. It’s guarenteed.

Anecdotal evidence says most people who use pot eventually give it up of their own accord. It also says bureaucrats who acquire power do not give it up willingly even if the reason it was originally granted no longer exists.

FWIW

That makes no economic sense. If the tax is too high, it still gives the black market an opportunity to sell by undercutting the legal price. That's what's going to happen here in Washington State. The tax has to be very low to eliminate the cartel involvement.

12-15 yr olds drink booze, sniff glue, hyperventilate, lick toads, abuse cough syrup, prescription meds, shoot horse, snort meth, and take satan knows what they call bath salts.

Why the irrational hate towards a nontoxic flower? The constitution was written for all of US, not just the ones calling for public execution of herb users.

I would go as far as a 1.00 a pack. Just use the tax to go after the drug cartel and hire more border patrol to stop the smuggling. If you tax it, I bet it would be more lucrative or on the same level as Alchohol. And more people die in car accidents drinking then driving under the influence of Pot.

I disagree. Based on my own experience as a yute several decades ago, illegal drugs were easy to obtain. Dealers never asked for IDs. Alcohol was much harder to get ahold of.

Your rhetoric is goofy and fallacious, and there’s nothing to applaud about your message here.

Believing that drugs should be legal for consenting adults to use, doesn’t imply that it’s legit for kids to use them. By this kind of argument, folks might as well be arguing that alcohol ought to be illegal as well… “fo’ the chillunz” and all.

Marijuana is technically, and clinically, harmless. It is not addicitive, and there is no amount you can ingest that can kill you. That's right, there is no lethal dosage available. For you to ingest enough to begin to approach toxicity, you'd pass out long before.

Clinically speaking, water is far more dangerous, as you can drink enough to poison yourself to death.
