when will people learn that you cannot attempt to undermine ron paul and not walk away looking like a goddamn idiot
lol, I meant that since it’s the only other option on the ballot right now, it’s better than locking people up, but I would prefer decriminalization.
Thanks GOP, I hope you’re happy for selling out liberty. Amen to Ron Paul!
What a stupid, old man.
A better option now? Do you mean you could support a legalization in the future? Locking more people up seems quite wrong, yes.
I believe that a legalization would reduce crime and perhaps even strengthen the economy. But you are absolutely right from a medical perspective, that it could become an issue.
You Ron Paul cult members can blame yourselves when you find your ass in a FEMA camp.
mit romney was granfathered in not elected….ron paul was the only person for this job…obama is a paper thin president…..ime a britt ,and would have voted for ron paul in a heart beat
I think that’s difficult to do because he doesn’t know him. has staked his career on his beliefs so if he endorses someone who betrays his beliefs it would detract from his track record.
Trust me, we’re on the same page, we just have different ways of looking at it, because you are right in the fact that legalization would be a better option NOW, rather than locking more people up.
However, for your first question, I direct you to Morphine, Hydrocodone, Codeine, and other narcotic pain killers. All synthetic, aside from codeine, of the Opium plant. Used to could grow it. In fact, it was in high demand during the civil war. Can’t grow that one now either.
It still does not explain how the plant (which is effective medicine) will suddenly be replaced by pills. I understand why pharmaceutical companies would feel threatened by a plant, because you can’t patent a natural plant. Imagine a society where people would not have to pay for certain medicines.
I understand that this might become an issue if legalization becomes a reality, but I’m not as worried about this medical perspective as you are. Legalization would solve a lot of problems.
Good thing we nominated Electable Mitt, huh?
Big pharma is just going to buy the biggest Medical Marijuana Dispensary, after the working man has worked hard to grow his business, and call for “regulation” of the others. Congress will pass the law and you’ve got yourself a monopoly. It’s not illegal, it’s just REGULATED. That’s how they do things. Without this method, we would not have had AT&T. The Government gets their foot in the door and lights your house on fire. You must learn that. -_-
I seriously doubt that todays medical marijuna business would disappear to be strictly replaced by big-pharma-owned-cannabis-pills. A plant will still be a plant.
The fact of the matter is that legalization does have a lot of positive sides. Decriminalization is also a better alternative than prohibition and it would solve some problems, but not all.
Oh, and don’t forget about big pharma. When they finally get a hold of this, it’s going to be ugly. We’re talking cannabis pills that make you sick, so “…you won’t become addicted.” And you still can’t grow it.
You bring up a good point about the drug cartels, but I’m still skeptical. If it was decriminalized people would just grow it and sell it to their neighbors and friends, eliminating the need for the cartels.
Now, you won’t be “allowed” to grow it or sell it your self, thereby creating a NEW cartel; The people rich enough to buy the permits to be able to do this. That is where my skepticism comes from.
Hypocrites? Maybe,maybe not. That’s not MY point, that’s your strawman. Weak. I said that Romney could have gotten enough of their votes to win. Rush Limboob is talking about it right now but he doesn’t have the honesty to admit that these 3 million that didn’t vote were probably mostly pissed-off Paul people who refused to vote.
Good day? Translation= “Pitty Zip doesn’t like the truth and I am going to pout.” LOL.
Then they would be hypocrites, because they abandoned principle because the GOP was “nice” to Ron. Period and end of story.
