Madison County, GA — In spite of their best and most tyrannical intentions, the police state is losing the information war in regards to the war on drugs. No longer do the majority of Americans buy into the reefer madness that was used for decades to wage a racist and vile campaign that destroyed everything it touched. However, in spite of the fact that they are losing the information war, the dinosaur drug warriors continue to charge on — after all, their paychecks and pensions depend on it.

A recent Facebook post this week, by the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, highlights the utter failure that is the war on drugs. On Sunday morning, the department took to social media to brag about a pot bust that took place overnight. The poorly written post read as follows:

Sheriff Moore and his Deputies working hard to keep Madison County safe. 1 am on a late Saturday night, early Sunday Morning, and they are getting it done. More dopers in the Madison County Detention Center. And btw, looks like it’s packaged to sell so that’s one of the dealers!!!! Keep it up guys! Be safe, Be Diligent!!!

The mindset that this department has to have to brag, publicly, about kidnapping and caging otherwise entirely innocent people for possessing a plant is telling, to say the least. However, as the comments below the Facebook post illustrate, this mindset is changing.

Advertisment

Cannabis has been shown to kill cancer cells, save the lives of countless epileptic children, treat PTSD, heal bones, treat brain trauma, and a slew of other medical uses science is only beginning to understand. And yet, the only thing dangerous about this incredible plant is the fact that police will kidnap, cage, or kill you for possessing it.

In spite of medical cannabis being legal in some fashion in 28 states and recreationally legal in another eight states, the government still violently and with extreme prejudice continues to seek out those who dare possess it.

If the CDC calculated the number of deaths inflicted by police while enforcing marijuana laws, that number would certainly be shocking and could even be deemed a risk to public health. Marijuana is, indeed, dangerous, but only because of what can happen to you if the police catch you with it.

Nothing highlights the hypocrisy, immorality, and sheer lunacy of the drug war quite like marijuana prohibition, and the only ones who continue to enforce the immoral and tyrannical act of marijuana prohibition are those who profit from it — like the Madison County Sheriff’s Department.

However, thanks to the unapologetic internet and the massive dissemination of knowledge it facilitates, the days of pot tyranny are numbered.

After the hilarious and furious backlash, the sheriff’s department was forced to pull the post as hundreds of comments pointed out the immoral and hypocritical nature of this image.

Below are some of the best comments on the now deleted post that helped to shame this department into pulling it. The comment immediately below says it all:

The next comment points out this paradigm shift as well.

Some of the folks even posted a few Free Thought Project memes in the comments, too.

If this reaction to the tyranny of the drug war becomes the norm, perhaps those who continue to perpetuate it will think twice before kicking in their next front door, or shooting their next dog while serving a warrant for pot, or ruining some kid’s chances at ever getting a decent job because he had some arbitrary substance deemed illegal by the state.

    The police are immoral humans with absolutely no integrity. Shame on them for kidnapping peaceful people.

    Actually it is a product of environment growing up, brain abnormalitys/deformity and some animal instinct, it can stem from hebephilia, an attraction to teenagers which is ingrained instinctually in all people since the dawn of mankind as a way to ensure mating with young healthy individuals to better the chance of healthy offspring. A study was done that showed over 90 percent of males have atleast some hebephile tendencies or traits.

  • Brandon Hallberg

    Pedophilia is a condition or way of thinking you can’t make a condition or way of thinking illegal. That makes no sense. Pedophilia is not illegal and never has been, look at the definition.

  • Way to make yourself look like gigantic idiots. Trump would be proud

    I think you mean obsolete…

  • Matthew David Heinlein

    Wow, how truly ignorant of you… You should understand that it is impossible to prove that something doesn’t exist; would you care to prove that there isn’t a magical teapot orbiting around the massive black hole at our galactic center? No, you can’t, just like I can’t prove there is no God, but the evidence points to their likelihoods being about as probable!

    And no, the burden of proof is on the believer! We haven’t made any claims; you are the one claiming to know that God exists! PROVE IT!

    And you just keep getting more asinine with your “religion of evolution”! How stupid could you be?!?! Evolution is an accepted FACT, based on mountains of EVIDENCE! There is absolutely no faith required, that’s the beauty of science, you don’t need to believe what some ancient book told you (since you weren’t there either lol), because you can look at evidence preserved through fossil record, DNA sequencing, geologic conditions etc. The evidences proves, beyond any scientific question, that evolution occoured to get us humans here and continues, with absolutely no faith or religion required.

    It’s truly sad that there are so many deluded people just like you in the USA… I PRAY for the day the US catches up to the rest of the world and takes the schakles of religion and blind faith off!

      Black Holes aren’t proven either dude, they are still a theory…What is sad is thinking that a “guess” albeit an “educated” guess is fact, at what has not been observed…”The evidences proves, beyond any scientific question, that evolution occurred to get us humans here and continues” UM No it doesn’t, still just a guess…We have not OBSERVED ONE TIME a new species forming from evolution, animals and plants do “adapt” and “change” to their environments just like humans do….And if you truly do believe in evolution then, I don’t, but science then says, your “Race” is a lesser form of human….That is what science says…If people came from Africa, which has been proven wrong with latest DNA evidence, black people or darker skinned were here first, and lesser form of the modern human…Again, I don’t believe this at all, we are all one “Race” human, with different tribal conditions. Natural example, a dog and a fox cannot mate, nor a fox and a wolf, nor a coyote and a fox, same sub species of animal, but they cannot breed together….Just like a Robin can’t breed with a Cardinal or Black Bird with a Crow…Race is a man made term to segregate us into groups to “compete” against each other…

      More and More evidence is proving a Grand Design…

    • Thebob

      Prove he doesn’t exist…Prove Gravity is actually real…Science can’t prove squat in reality, they are mostly guesses and interpretations of data, which are usually one sighted to fit the narrative they are trying to push…Look up Giants in North America, why is it, that the Great Pyramid/Mound builders are not spoken of in our American Ancient history??? Cause those civilizations pre-date the Land Bridge theory and throw a wrench in the Smithsonian’s promotion of Evolution….Why are Native American’s story’s thrown out while we look at Ancient Egyptians as narrative and fact? How is it science has found civilizations all over the world that pre-date the “from Africa” theory?

    I can certainly see how retarded you are on the subject! First of all, I have “herd” (lol @ you) of gay animals; it’s actually quite well documented.

    But I digress on that point, let’s try something that may make sense to you… Have you ever heard of infertile women? Women born without the capability to reproduce? “If so, how do they maintain their numbers? Do they actively recruit new members, if so, where? How? Or maybe by now, you can see how utterly retarded” YOU ARE!

    But, to answer you question seriously; gay people do actually reproduce as well. My ex-girlfriend happened to be the daughter of a gay man. With societal pressures (mainly from intolerant religions) urging gays to live a “normal” life, many have been forced to fake a hetrosexual marriage. I’d imagine this is decreasing as tolerance increases; but until we know what (if any) genetic component there is to homosexuality, I can say how this will affect the number of homosexual humans born.

    P.S. Next time you’re thinking of asking people on the interwebs if they’ve ever “herd” (still laughing AT you) of something, you should probably google it first so you don’t look real, real dumb! 😅🤣

      I’d agree those urges are “natural” in the sense they can’t control what they feel, but, most of any sexuality comes from addiction problems or rape, incest, molestation….Porn addiction, etc..etc…Actually most if not all addiction problems, alcoholism drugs etc..etc.. can be traced back to one cause, a lot of times usually something sexual that happened to that person or some other form of mental trauma…Porn warps the mind, this is proven SCIENCE that you do love so much…Look it up, don’t take my word for it.

  • Matthew David Heinlein

    Love the comment, but…. Being dumb doesn’t necessarily make you a Trump supporter, I mean come on, they may have supported Ted Cruz, or pretty much any other repugnant religious zealot on the Repubelicant ballot lmao!!!

  • Matthew David Heinlein

    Hahaha you went there! Love it!

  • Matthew David Heinlein

    You know what, in the spirit of Independence Day, I’m going to choose to be sexually attracted to the American Flag this weekend. I may also choose to be a scatophile as well… This is going to be one helluva patriotic weekend with my flag!

    I’m just sooo glad I can choose what I’m sexually attracted to! It’s nice when I see pretty girls and choose not to be attracted to them so I don’t have to pay for a first date!

  • Matthew David Heinlein

    Punctuation would be super helpful here lol!

  • Matthew David Heinlein

    Hold on; how is not believing something being brainwashed?

    The lack of belief is inherant in everyone, it takes brainwashing to believe something, anything!

    Seriously though I give religion props on making you so delusional that you could post that and truly not see the logical fallacy there! It takes an absolutely brainwashed person to be able to not see how incredibly illogical and false your statement it.

    This comment section is a laugh riot!!! Thanks Christianity for the free entertainment!

    • Thebob

      Actually you have that backwards dude…Even in the absence of a religion or belief, people will turn to “God” like figure….I do hate religion, but I am religious….It actually takes more “faith” to believe in the man made up theory of everything just happened by chance than a grand design….Take notes and watch “Is Genesis History?” on Netflix, very much back by modern science(religion). And a theory is just a guess, most of science is just guessing at our observations and different interpretations of that data….What was considered a mini-computer in the 70’s vs. today we all have a mini-computer in our pockets….It is a paradigm shift…Every literary scholar will look at the bible as written as a narrative; not poetry like with other works out of Greece etc..Don’t be single sighted when looking at data. As with Mt. St. Helens in the 80’s our world landscape can be changed over night with catastrophic disasters…Not everything is as it seems…Gravity is the perfect example…Science still has NO CLUE exactly what Gravity is….I ask you this, Is there an Absolute Truth?

  • Matthew David Heinlein

    I hope the same, but you and I both know the likelyhood of that is about the same as for the return or Christ our Lord….

  • Matthew David Heinlein

    Are you serious? You honestly cant think of a time that youve been sexually attracted to someone but not acted on it? Are you telling me that you just go up and immediatly fuck every person you’re sexually attracted to?!? Damn dude, I need to find out your secret for avoiding those pesky rape charges…

  • Matthew David Heinlein

    Absolutely. People like Samuel (right wing snowflakes) may need the police to protect them from the “evil black people”, but thinking people know that the police in their current state are mainly to function as revenue generation for a multitude of industries (and they do a damned good job too…).

    • Thebob

      Least you understand my concept here…I don’t advocate violence, been to war seen it don’t want to see it here…But, like I said, at least we would know what to expect. The police have no want or need to protect anyone, that isn’t their job which most people do not understand, their job is being beholden to their State handlers and protecting the ‘State’ not her citizens and yes generating revenue outside of taxes….Billions a year…Not to mention the asset forfeiture unconstitutional laws…IF big IF Police actually read and took to heart the Constitution, they would be marching on Capitol Hill and arresting the real criminals Congress and they would be refusing to enforce Unconstitutional Laws, such as EVERY GUN LAW EVER PASSED…Police are trained that every citizen they encounter they automatically treat like a criminal, whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty….I also get that they do have a tough job, not that dangerous compared to a lot of other jobs, but still tough, when actually solving REAL CRIMES….
