Your Tax Dollars at Work – 2007 Set New Record for Marijuana Busts

Just say no.

According to FBI figures released last week, 2007 was a terrific year for the War on Drugs (unlike the Wars on Terror and Poverty, which showed mixed results). Last year, police arrested over 1.8 million people for “drug abuse violations,” of which 17.5% were for dealing. That means approximately 1.5 million Americans were detained for simple possession of a product they chose to buy. Of those, over 872,000 were busted for pot, the least offensive illicit intoxicant in history.

It is absolutely disgraceful that a country so advanced as the United States would spend so many resources on persecuting their own citizens.

    MSN.com released a news report on what if we did legalize marijuana? Comedy Central’s stars often admit to smoking the reefus. Those are just 2 of the many big corperations and higher standing people who are starting to think, hey, WE are the American people, we run this bitch, not you. I think we are well on our way to legalization. If only someone with many political degree’s would stand up for us. We have the motivation, were just waiting for an extremist to spark the revolution. I think we should organize a 1million people+ petition and movement outside of the doors of congress. If many stars, corperations, and citizens show up, along with plenty of evidence to convince congress that weed isnt bad, and enough people show up, congress would be forced to do as we say. As such, the american government was founded on the premise that WE the american people elected officials, we choose them, and we choose them because they represent OUR ideals and beliefes, and if we didnt like something the government must do as we say. The government has put a fear choke on us, when will we break free from this tyrany and re-claim our rights?
