Well, those youth having been under the thumb of the police state their whole lives. They don't like Prohibition. "Look, we understood we couldn't make it illegal to be young or poor or black in the United States, but we could criminalize their common pleasure. We understood that drugs were not the health problem we were making them out to be, but it was such a perfect issue...that we couldn't resist it." - John Ehrlichman, White House counsel to President Nixon on the rationale of the War on Drugs.
We are not legalizing. We are going back to the way it was in 1936. That is a conservative position. Smaller government. BTW when alcoholics switch to cannabis traffic accidents go down. http://healthland.time.com/2011/12/02/why-medical-marijuana-laws-reduce-traffic-deaths/ And actually science says cannabis smoke is good for your health. You might want to look up Donald Tashkin in that regard. He found it mildly protective against lung cancer. Prohibition II is not working any better than Prohibition I did. The people are ending it. The same way they ended the other one.
And Newt Gingrich is a traitor to the cause. He campaigned in favor of heroin decriminalization in California.
Prohibition works! We need more of it.Giving up on Alcohol Prohibition was the worst mistake the US ever made. Giving up on Drug Prohibition will be a repeat of that error.
If you want the youth vote in 2016 you are going to have to give up Prohibition Chuck. Or wind up like the Republicans of 1932 who would not give up that Prohibition.
Or outlaw plants.
A Prohibitionist at a freedom summit? What will they think of next?
This is why the people of DC are tired of Prohibition. "Look, we understood we couldn't make it illegal to be young or poor or black in the United States, but we could criminalize their common pleasure. We understood that drugs were not the health problem we were making them out to be, but it was such a perfect issue...that we couldn't resist it." - John Ehrlichman, White House counsel to President Nixon on the rationale of the War on Drugs.
Obama said to the UN in 2012: The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.
2016 is an anti-Prohibition election for me. My choices are Paul or the Democrat in the general. Why? Cannabinoid medicine full exploited has the possibility of saving $1 trillion a year in medical expenses. Look up – cannabis NIH cancer – for one. Or – cannabis NIH diabetes – for another. There are many more. No one but Paul could bring such a race home for the Republicans.
