The name's Miki, old friend of Jonathan's, here to tell you that WE ARE A MAJORITY, us folks that want marijuana decriminalized, more than two-thirds of citizens over 18 so if we all stand up and be counted, WE RULE. It's the way it works right? Majority rules.
Prohibition doesn't make any sense, unless you are someone who profits large by the prohibition. Without much thinking anyone can make a long long list of who the big time profit makers are. It's not the tax payers. Enforcement of prohibition costs 10 billion a year not counting the 1.2 billion it costs to keep over 60,000 thousand Americans in jail for just marijuana charges. Guess who pays those bills? Initals U&I...
Prohibition doesn't effect abuse or sobriety one way or another. It wont stop yor kid from smoking pot, you have to do that! Legalization can help us save the planet. Growing hemp can save farmland from developers and forests from clear cutting.
Hemp can be made into lots of stuff: BIODIESEL to lessen our dependence on oil, which helps with global warming and cleans up the air too, the hemp fibers can be used to make fabric, paper and building panels and we can get rid of a lot of plastic, another oil product.
But its up to you to pick up the beat.... Lobby, educate, infom, email your elected officials. Show our majority!
Start a beat for cannabis...
