The war on certain plants is a scam designed to increase police powers
and budgets and erode the civil rights and liberties of the common
citizens. It is also a message to all citizens: "Obey your government
- - no matter how counterproductive, racist, or absurd their laws may
be. Failure to do so will result in your ruination."

As for marijuana having "confirmed psychological effects and has been
proven to be addictive," the actual clinical data says otherwise.

The connection between pot and mental illness has been repeatedly
shown to be nothing more than a correlation, no cause has been
established, and the myth that pot is "addictive" has also been
repeatedly and soundly debunked. One need look no farther than the
2002 Senate Committee Report for proof.

But don't let "facts" get in the way of a good story.
