Having trouble affording historically discredited racist drug war laws?

It would be difficult to dream up a worse way to deal with America's drug 
problems and solutions to keeping children away from drugs than our current 
example ("Narcotics bureau leader gives state ultimatum on cuts," Dec. 19, 
1A). Accomplishments of this prohibitionist war reveal a bigger Al Capone 
known as Osama bin Laden financed by our own ignorance.

At the very least, cannabis and hemp must be re-legalized, which allows 
more resources used toward hard drug abuse. It defies integrity and 
rationality to cage humans for using cannabis.

And to cage sick citizens using cannabis for relief of pain is vile, morbid 
and spiteful for a civilization in the year 2001.

Further, as a Christian, it is a sin to cage your brother or neighbor for 
using cannabis. Thank God for cannabis. Accept cannabis for what it is as 
described on the very first page of the Bible (Genesis. 1:11-12; 29-30).
