(Re: "Still smokin'," Buzz, Dec. 18.) Cheech and Chong have been effective
splitting my gut exposing the prohibition, persecution and extermination of
the relatively safe, socially acceptable, God-given plant, cannabis, for
what it is. But cannabis prohibition is not funny. I was angry when I heard
George Bush and John Ashcroft's ignoids caged Chong over this bullshit.
Government is screwing the country bad with this subsidized discrimination
and persecution; it's as though America is run by Nazis trying to destroy

And then the shaking head realizes cannabis prohibition even affects
hemp, which doesn't even have THC, yet government classifies it as a
Schedule I substance along with heroin and LSD. Hemp prohibition puts
America in a mind-bending lose-lose-lose situation.

Ironically, perhaps America's largest debt is with China, which allows
its communist farmers to grow hemp, while free American farmers are
prohibited from growing hemp. I wonder, does China have lobbyists
helping prohibit Americans from growing hemp so they might profit and
cause us to self-destruct?

Cheech and Chong are funny. Cannabis prohibition is
nation-destructive, dysfunctional, luciferous, vulgar, selfish, and
it's the work of the devil. Cannabis prohibitionists should be treated
like vampires.
