Skip to comments.George Soros’ real crusade: Legalizing marijuana in the U.S
Posted on 04/03/2014 8:45:52 PM PDT by MeshugeMikey
Billionaire philanthropist George Soros hopes the U.S. goes to pot, and he is using his money to drive it there. With a cadre of like-minded, wealthy donors, Mr. Soros is dominating the pro-legalization side of the marijuana debate by funding grass-roots initiatives that begin in New York City and end up affecting local politics elsewhere.
The pro-legalization movement hasnt come from a groundswell of the people. A great deal of its funding and fraud has been perpetrated by George Soros and then promoted by celebrities, said John Walters, director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy under George W. Bush. The truth is under attack, and its an absolutely dangerous direction for this country to be going in.

To what purpose?
It sounds like one of the weirder causes. It might actually cut crime.
Please, focus all your attention on legalizing pot, Mr. Soros. You’re doing too much damage elsewhere.
He knows that a bunch of dumbed-out people on pot, with no motivation as a result of it, all sitting around contemplating their navels — make for good Democrats! ... LOL ...
because people aren’t stupid enough as it is.
they voted in droves...for Buraq Hussein Obama!!
A stoned populace is a Passive Populace!
This evil SOB knows that stoned people are content to do nothing and will be easy to control. Control is what its all about.
A Stoned Society is a Passive Society...
As if America hasn’t already devolved into a nation of dopehead dregs.
thanks in great part to the likes of Gyorgy Schwartz aka Georgie Soros
George Soros real crusade is to make a lot of money by buying up distressed assets and then waiting for them to recover value - that’s why he backs liberal-progressive causes so enthusiastically - he understands that they can only result in economic and financial disaster, giving him a wider market to chose from.....
This is precisely why they are determined to do it.
Stoned sheep are even easier to herd.
Found refuge in America, proceeded to undermine its culture with decadence.
If it is legalized, he’d open up a bunch of pot shops and make a killing.
You bet - and unfortunately I’ve seen it firsthand with some others that I want nothing to do with. It’s absolutely sickening!
After nearly ruining a number of economies..hes been going after ours with renewed vigor!
If opens some around here I'll open a shop next to it and sell Twinkies and Doritos and other snack goodies and make even more of a killing!
Old pothead Georgie spent a lot of it right here in Arizona pushing “medical” marijuana through. It didn’t pass until they started busing in potheads from all over the southwest so they could cast “provisional” (Fraudulent) ballots.
All this leftist crap has all been for THAT? He didn’t have to work so hard stealing my rights; I don’t give a rat’s as if he lights up!
Yes, it certainly is.
I have less than no respect for stoners.
To what purpose?
“Drug-taking is the ally of authority and the enemy of thought and speech.” -Peter Hitchens
Potheads are easy to control.
And an important part of the Marxist utopia is “happiness”...... “Happy” slaves for the state, so they won’t understand how pathetic and miserable slavery is.
Like the soma-——drugs are used to determine the state of happiness.
Here's my theory and I'm sticking to it:
It is a short-term strategy. Millions of sit-it-out liberals will crawl to the polls to vote for legalizing their pot. Make that an issue or put it on the ballot, and you can win elections.
I think this worked last time in the key state of Colorado.
There's also a long-term strategy involving brain-dead voters.
the Anti Enlightment indeed
“Dope Up..Fall Out ... Drop Down...but not off our voter rolls...” George Soros
The twisted old man understands that all too well. This is how he's spending his final years on earth. Financing the destruction of minds. What a legacy Mr. Soros./S
Look at the regions of the world that chose Cannabis over alcohol for thousands of years, and look at Western Civilization, that refused to adopt Cannabis as an intoxicant, for thousands of years.
Soros knows what he is doing, he saw Cannabis break out into Western Civilization, in the 1960s.
Bread and Circuses -
Entertainment can take many forms - anything that can misdirect and numb the populace is just fine. Marx used to say religion was the opiate of the masses but I disagree. Good faith makes people more active and involved, and less likely to put up with injustice and wrongs.
But there was a reason he used the word OPIATE.
> He knows that a bunch of dumbed-out people on pot, with no motivation as a result of it, all sitting around contemplating their navels make for good Democrats! ... LOL ...
Yep they don ‘t have the same fire in their belly to fight back against the system when they’re high on the stuff all the time. Probably Soro’s intent.

Growing up I was around kids that started doing it when they were 11 and 12. Heck none that I know of ever did much with their lives and most got hooked on harder stuff. I remember running into one after high school and I don’t think he ever opened his eyes more than halfway the whole time I ever saw him after that (not many times) and he sold drugs with the help of a girlfriend at local bars. A lot of others now have serious criminal records; I looked them up. Don’t tell me pot isn’t harmful and doesn’t do damage. Alcohol is just as bad or worse if consumed heavily too. I’m talking about guys that doit every day ^. Of course they didn’t start that way.
I do not think pot leads to using stronger drugs, however it certainly takes
ones ambitions and goals away! This would be typical of Soros to want
American citizens to become lazy non thinking couch potatoes! I despise
this man WHY IS HE NOT DEAD YET!!!
Serious criminal records, because they sell drugs? Sounds like a circular argument: Drugs screw up your life, because they’re illegal and you’ll get busted and then have a criminal record, which will haunt you forever, and therefore, drugs should be illegal to deter people from falling into this exact trap. But wait - if the harm comes only from the illegality, then that isn’t a harm that is prevented by prohibition, it’s caused by prohibition.
Oh that was just the beginning if it. A lot of them had burglary (stealing other people’s stuff so they could pawn it and get money for dope), theft by check (kiting bad checks at grocery stores to buy dope), family violence (as a result if being high and getting into an argument with their wives and beating the crap out of them), possesion and possesion with intent to sell, criminal mischief (damaging other people’s property during altercations), DUIs and DWI’s (which caused damage to other people’s vehicles), among others if I were to look them back up again.
There’s a lot of fallout from drug use. The user usn’t the only victim. The only people that I’ve ever known that justified drug use were either casual drug users, addicts, or drug dealers.
Real simple, it gets the dupes to the polls.
I’m not trying to ding anyone here for using pot. I know some people can handle it andsome can’t. It’s just not part of my lifestyle because I saw what it did to others around me while I grew up. After decades of watching several of these guys the end result of lifelong is evidence enough for me no to want to imbibe.
A subdued population is much easier to contriol, no other reason!
Not a bad plan. I once saw a group of potheads with munchies attack a tube of cookie dough. It was not pretty. It was like a suburban Lord of the Flies moment.
Soros has always been known to be a big drug legalization person. I think it’s partly because he no doubt stands to make money off of it, and partly because he knows that a stoned people is a dumb and complaisant people.
Think of the Opium Wars: Britain wanted to force China into free trade and encouraged opium smuggling and addiction as a way to weaken the will of the Chinese to resist.
And it worked. At one point, one-third of the population of China was addicted to opium.
Get enough of the population sedated in a marijuana haze and Soros and company can work their evil plans without resistance.
As I watch this discussion on smoking pot...I wonder where the anti smoking crowd is? Why aren’t they “all over this” as cancer causing, dangerous because of second hand smoke, etc, etc,? I’m thinking there is some major hypocracy happening here. Why aren’t there as many “no pot” signs as there are “no smoking” signs? The (supposed) danger is identical...you are burning a leaf with chemicals in it that are carcinogenic. So where is the outrage?
