Misinformed and Narrow-Minded Politicians on Marijuana
The outdated and misinformed views of our politicians must go. This is no longer 1937 and people are not settling for being fed lies surrounding a plant. In today's age we have more information at our fingertips than ever before. Cannabis consumers and activists alike are becoming more informed and are taking a stand against the Reefer Madness propaganda that many healthcare professionals and politicians are holding onto so dearly. The houses of government in the United States were created to bring order to politics that would in return represent the views of millions of Americans. Over the last few decades however these houses of government have failed to represent the public and have been primarily focused on further building they're already rather large bank accounts. Many of the individuals within the Congress and the Senate have well out served their time as representatives.
The War on Drugs Has Increased Drug Use
The narrow minded views and lies that they hold onto surrounding cannabis are responsible for a continued war on drugs that has been nothing but a failure since implementation. When the war on drugs was enacted by President Richard Nixon there was nowhere near the epidemic that we see today with illicit street drugs or pharmaceutical prescription drugs. Since the beginning of the war on drugs more drugs and more issues surrounding them have occurred in the United States and around the globe than ever before. The continued war on drugs is due to Reefer Madness propaganda these politicians hold onto for dear life.
A Single Lie About Cannabis Has Costs Countless Lives
In the early 1990s the US government filed for a patent that clearly states that cannabis has medicinal values. Despite this very fact cannabis is still scheduled as a Class A Schedule 1 narcotic meaning that it has absolutely no medicinal value and has potential for a high rate of addiction. This classification could not be further from what cannabis really is. Cannabis is one of the greatest medicines that we have on the face of this planet. The medicinal applications of cannabis has been scientifically proven time and time again. It has been researched and shown by many different studies that cannabis can help with many of the everyday ailments that individuals suffer from and is showing great potential at providing treatment and even cures for some of the most serious illnesses that traditional pharmaceuticals have failed at treating time and time again throughout history.
Misinformed Statement and the Rise of the People
The new DEA Chief Chuck Rosenberg stated recently that there were discussions happening around cannabis legalization but that there were no discussions surrounding marijuana as a medicine because medical marijuana is a joke. This viewpoint and statement clearly shows just how misinformed and misguided the individuals are who are supposed to be representing the people. The people are no longer being quiet though and they are taking a stand against individuals such as this. A petition was started just shortly after the statement was made that calls for the removal of this individual from his position within the DEA. At the time of this article being written the petition had received over 80,000 signatures from citizens such as you and I that are tired of this false representation from our government officials. The misinformation and reefer madness propaganda that these individuals hold on to has been debunked and proven to be lies countless times over. The educated American population and populations around the globe are taking a stand to make a change and to end prohibition once and for all.
A Prime Example
Governor and Presidential Hopeful Chris Christie is another prime example of a politician that holds on to Reefer Madness lies and firmly opposes the legalization of marijuana. Chris Christie has stated many times that he is fully against the legalization of cannabis and that if we is elected to be the President of the United States that he would fight back against the states that have taken measures to legalize cannabis. We the people deserve to be represented by individuals who are up to date, individuals who are informed and individuals that are not in the pockets of large pharmaceutical corporations. We the people will continue to educate our politicians, our friends, our families and others on the importance of ending prohibition of cannabis. We will conquer and we will win despite anyone’s best efforts to stop the progress.
