Amid the seemingly constant bad news about rising international tensions and the crushing police/surveillance state at home, one bright spot remains. Cannabis decriminalization keeps on sweeping the U.S. – as, according to polls, almost no one believes cannabis should be illegal.

It is well known that the war on drugs serves no purpose but to enrich and empower the police state and the corporatocracy. On the other hand, cannabis legalization has provided tremendous benefits to the people.

Medical cannabis is proving to successfully treat an ever-growing number of physical and mental ailments, without the side harmful side-effects of pharmaceutical products. While it is not a panacea, medical cannabis is giving life to children where before they were expected to die, allowing children to finally stop having debilitating seizures, and allowing war veterans to find treatment for PTSD where none other exists, to name just a few.

Freedom is even greater in the eight states that have legalized recreational cannabis use. If this weren’t enough, legal pot is providing incredible economic boosts, such as in Colorado where the cannabis industry is contributing more to the economy than all other industries.

Advertisment

More and more of those in government are getting it, and they’re not afraid to speak out or even act in the noblest of manners, such as Georgia Rep. Allen Peake who skirts the law to distribute Colorado medical cannabis to suffering children in his state.

Add Ohio Supreme Court Justice William O’Neill to the list. In a recent speech, the enlightened judge said cannabis should be legalized and all non-violent cannabis offenders should be released from jail.

The time has come for new thinking,” O’Neill said. “We regulate and tax alcohol and tobacco and imprison people for smoking grass.

O’Neill says legalization and prisoner release would generate $350 million that would be used to treat drug addiction instead of criminalizing it, as well as create a mental health network to combat addiction.

Treat addiction like the disease it is in the name of compassion,” he said.

O’Neill is pondering a run for Ohio governor, but won’t make a decision until the end of the year. Even if he doesn’t run, his remarks inject some much-needed substance into the race, and should spur the candidates to put their positions on record.

Ohio legalized medical cannabis in Sept. 2016, although legal sales won’t begin for at least a year. Ohio will eventually have dispensaries and cultivation centers to provide medical products for a host of qualifying conditions.

O’Neill’s call to legalize all cannabis use, like alcohol and tobacco, and release non-violent cannabis “offenders” is a natural progression in rational thought. As far as drugs go, we know that alcohol and tobacco use kills hundreds of thousands of people every year, while no one has ever been known to die from the use of cannabis.

How can the State logically defend the legality of more dangerous drugs (with little to no medical benefit) while a harmless, medically beneficial one is illegal? If there is no rational basis, and cannabis were completely legalized, then it follows there is no rational basis for holding non-violent users and sellers of a natural plant in jail.

Pretty simple, but too many politicians still cling to the injustice of prohibition, even though we know the drug war was started to oppress minorities and suppress political dissent. They continue supporting the War on Drugs even though it has not achieved any of its stated goals, after five decades and $1 trillion being spent.

If Justice O’Neill ends up running for governor, his chances will certainly be boosted by calling for the freedom and economic boost that is legal cannabis.

    Progress is being made. Even if he decides not to run for governor, O’Neill has pushed the topic to the forefront of public awareness. Which, in other states, has usually meant eventual acceptance by the majority of the citizenry.

    What will the police do with all the extra time on their hand when half of all swat team raids is for harmless plant called marijuana?

      They, the pigs, will hafta do some harder work for a change.

        They will need to replace their revenue stream. So it’s gonnna get bad for some unlucky group.

          I do not know what your political persuasion might be, but as for myself, as a Socialist, I would TAX the HELL out of the rich. Period.

          No more free rides for them…we po’ folks need the free rides.

          • Zackknowitall

            Maybe if without jobs living in government housing would just stop having kids until they can afford it we can end proverty.

            Then I might agree with redistributing wealth. If we redistributed it now these bums would have more kids to get more money.

          • 174thandvyse

            There is some truth in what you say, but I truly believe that it is exaggerated. There are some “n’er do wells” who choose to be “n’er do wells” because they are too lazy to work, and I don’t defend them. But most po’ folks are that way due to circumstances beyond their control, or they are in that position due to stupid decisions on their behalf. I DO defend them because anybody can make a mistake, and they shouldn’t be punished for the rest of their lives for their mistakes. Sometimes, they cannot get decent jobs because a lot of employers ask for too much, or perhaps they have some other ulterior motive, such as prejudice, or greed, that keeps them from hiring many good workers.

            There are 10 generation blacks in the projects right now who don’t work and never will. They just keep popping out FWROA.

          • 174thandvyse

            “There are 10 generation blacks in the projects right now”

            Ha!!! That’s one of the EXTREME exaggerations which I was speaking of. Where did you get that number, hmm? The reason that I ask is because EVERY family member of mine, plus their butt-buddies, who tries to do an “Archie Bunker” imitation, has said the exact same thing!!! NONE of them has spent ANY time at all in the ghetto, and yet they (believe) they know EVERYTHING about Black folks, while they never spent any time with Black folks, at all.

            I grew up in the ghetto, so my opinion has a little more “bona fides” than the thoughts of someone who has NEVER hung out over there. Next time, before you say something as ridiculous as that, check out other people from different cultures, and you will discover that they are not that different from you.

          • Zackknowitall

            Not that different less than 1% of them have neanderthal DNA. This DNA is what allowed people to become smarter. Go look up hood rats in YouTube killing, beating and robbing people over weed, weave, food stamps. Then watch big massive 100 black persons ghetto hood rat fights.

          • 174thandvyse

            I don’t hafta “look it up” on YouTube…I was there! You see, that’s the difference between you and me…you heard about it second hand…I LIVED IT!!!

            Trust me, you’re not getting the whole story when you gotta depend on YouTube, or the Media. But being there…there’s nothing like it.

            As Lt. Columbo would say, “Just one more thing” — I wouldn’t use that “Neanderthal” ancestry garbage to describe Black folks. The Neanderthals were the early cavemen in Germany…that means that they were White.

          • Zackknowitall

            And there were other hominoids that early humans mated with. What would become French people mated with a particular type of hominid. Everyone evolved past being the first type of human aka black African. I think I know much my about early human history than you. I know whites, asain, Hispanics, Jews, and the rest of humans are a different species than African blacks. We are not a different race. Wolfs and modern day dogs are a different species than wolfs. They can still made and produce off spring. Blacks are much to different then the rest of the world we all see it. There is a huge percentage of blacks that glorified violence and gangster lifestyle. blacks came up with this no snitching and policy and it was only blacks that led by this policy and killed over it. Blacks are not ole other people. Whites, Hispanics and asains and others commit 85% against their own pepper at a rate of 85-90%. While 60% of all black crime is committed against other aka non blacks.

            Only 12-13% A population
            87% single parent house holds in 2014
            85% drop out rate
            80+% of prison population
            Commit 50% of all murder but that going up
            Blacks killed more that 800 people in Chicago acounting for 90% of the murders but only make up 32% of the population.

            Of course there is a crime and violence problem in the black community and that’s why we are always talking about it. It’s also covered up by the liberal media as them acting out against never ending white racism. 99% of white I know fear blacks but dine havw them or think they are better.

          • 174thandvyse

            I tell you what…you can be like the Whites that “fear them”, and just avoid their areas, their parties, etc…while I’ll be like…well, like I’ve always been…party with all kinds, have sex with all kinds, have fun with all kinds…while you can sit there and quote “statistics” at me, while I yawn. In fact, I’m going to a mostly Black party, in a mostly Black part of Brooklyn tonight, and I’ll smoke some herb, drink some beer, play some “Crazy Eights”. And then I will “do a little dance, make a little love” and “get down tonight”! I’ll make my own “alternative facts”, because “that’s the way, ah-huh-ah-huh, I like it, ah-huh, ah-huh”.

            Ahh…disco music is still my favorite…KC and the Sunshine Band, Barry White, the Trammps, Donna Summer!!! If I grew up in your area, “uptown”, I would probably be listening to Led Zeppelin.

            “Joking”? Perhaps. I’m not sure. Is the plan that the Republicans have for the other (more than) half of their fellow Americans, whom the Republicans simply don’t like, an, ahem, “joke”? Their contempt for us is obvious.

          • 174thandvyse

            I’m not “standing on the corner with my hand held out” — I work and support myself, I always have. Your problem is that you associate Socialists like myself with bums. Some socialists are bums, some Capitalists are bums…bumming around isn’t a political position. It’s just a character flaw, that’s all. However, if someone is in need…a “bum” or otherwise…the government should help them.

          • Thebob

            Do you even know what Socialism is? I have asked you repeatedly to define what Socialism is to you what is a “true socialist”…Cause if you work, you are working in a CAPITALISTIC SOCIETY, therefore BY DEFACTO YOU ARE A CAPITALIST….Socialism TRUE SOCIALISM, YOU OWN NOTHING…You would be paid the same as the white guy or black guy regardless of how much work you do or they do or don’t do, you won’t be paid for picking up extra work or their slack…True Socialism…The GOVT CONTROLS ALL BUSINESS even though those businesses are still technically privately owned…YOU wouldn’t own a car or bike or whatever, but since you live in a big city you I assume you don’t own a car, actually u probably don’t even own your home am I right? You rent?
            Socialism there wouldn’t be McDonalds, there wouldn’t be all the choices of beer that you like, hell there wouldn’t even be the choices of Cannabis there would be NO COMPETITION and ALL WOULD BE FORCED TO CONFORM TO THE “NORMS” OF SOCIETY…YOU WOULD CEASE TO MATTER, YOUR EXISTENCE WOULD MEAN ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, as your work would mean nothing, how hard you would work means nothing, as YOU DON’T HAVE A RIGHT TO OWN ANYTHING, you will be told what to buy and how much or how little to buy…I bet you like steaks don’t ya? YOU WOULDN’T GET ANY ANYMORE…

            I do not think you live in reality, you may ack like you do, but you don’t, I bet you have NEVER even left the burrows? Never even been outside of your state, probably never even been more than 50 miles from your block? Probably have never been to a beach a real beach? Am I right? Or prove me wrong….YOU as an aged “man” have no clue what the real world is like, you are 2 decades older than I am, and I bet I have 10x more life experience than you do…Been to war, seen death first hand, seen TRUE PO’FOLKS in the world, YOU ARE NOT POOR, except maybe POOR YOU WHOA IS ME CRAP!!!..I have been a single father, now a father of 3, that I work very hard to provide for my family…I HAVE EARNED WHAT I GOT THIS FAR AND I WILL BE DAMNED IF THE ILK LIKE YOU WILL TAKE THAT AWAY FROM MY FAMILY…You know the difference between you and I, I truly believe in what I speak and I am willing to DIE for what I believe…I don’t think you or anyone like you would stand up even close for what you say you believe in…Abortion? You willing to die to defend the unborn? I SURE AS FCK WILL!!! 1st Amendment? 2nd Amendment? I HAVE ALREADY PLACED MY LIFE IN THE LIFE FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU TO SLEEP COMFY AT NIGHT…Regardless how you feel about Gov’t or Military…I didn’t see you or your generation step up for selfless sacrifice…No it was me and my generation of PATRIOTS WHO WILL NOT SIT IDLY BY WHILE OUR FLAWED BUT GREAT REPUBLIC GOES DOWN IN FLAMES….As your dear leader Bernie Sanders stated, “White people don’t know what it is like to be poor.” BULL SHIT!!! NO ONE IN THE COUNTRY KNOWS WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE TRULY POOR EVEN YOU BEING RAISED IN GHETTO….Pathetic excuse of a man…Or you are just lying to yourself or totally ignorant or closed minded…EVERYTHING you spout against is a product of the very same instance of people and Gov’t you choose, everything you despise, the Police, War on Drugs, etc..etc..etc IS A PRODUCT OF THE CHOICE OF GOV’T YOU WANT…Police State, thank Obama and Clinton and Sanders and Cuomo, Soros…BIG GOV’T SOCIALISM WOULD BE 10X WORSE THAN TODAY….FCKING CLUELESS

          • 174thandvyse

            Whoa! Give me a chance to answer! I know what real Socialism is, and, you may be correct, I may not really be a “true” Socialist. Just like last time, I said that to annoy people…to get a rise out of them. One thing I’m sure of, it cannot be the way you described it. That definition sounds more like “true” Communism, which differs from Socialism in some ways. There is some private ownership under a Socialist society…the Government just nationalizes BIG businesses. People have cars, people opwn houses, and people eat steaks. Oh, and by the way, for me steak is okay, but I much prefer Pork. Yes, I pay rent, but I no longer live in NYC, so YES, I have been beyond the five burroughs. And yes, I have been to many REAL beaches, not just Coney Island and Rockaway (polluted)…I’ve been to Florida beaches, both Gulf Coast and East Coast, I’ve been to all of those beaches on Long Island…the Hamptons, Fire Island, Jones Beach…and I’ve been to California beaches.

             

            I have more World expweriences than you wanna believe. I’ve never been in the Military — I have nothing against them, but it’s just not for me…I hate authority. “Death up close”?!!! You’ve got to be joking! I grew in the South Bronx, a/k/a The Ghetto of Ghettoes. During one year, in the early 1970s, more people died there than in Vietnam! I’ve had friends DIE in my arms. I have also earned my own way, but when I was really down and out, I did apply for assistance. One time they refused me, so I bought a half-ounce of Herb, rolled it up, and stood on the corner, from morning till night, selling “loose joints”. With perseverance, and with DESPERATION, I doubled, tripled, and quadrupled my money, so I was able to sell herb, and pay rent, and support myself! I do not want or need your money.

             

            I have worked for Social justice, many times. I see that you are against Abortion…well, good for you. That is not my main issue, so I do not try to stop it. How do I feel about it? Well, as that litle girl said in the movie, The Bad Seed, “I don’t FEEL anything at all”. Sorry, Bubba, I’m just not religious. Now, you could disagree with me all day long about which group favors Herb legalization more, Republicans, Democrats or Socialists. And, I will give you the same answer all day long…I’ve lived under Republican administrations, and I’ve lived under Democratic administrations…my experiences with the Drug War under the Republicans have always been worse. Period.

          • Thebob

            “my experiences with the Drug War under the Republicans have always been worse” I don’t discount that, but to say one over the other is just a false narrative…Currently policies you can thank the Clintons for the 3 strikes your out the 94′ Crime bill…They, both sides, use all these policies,,the Dems may say they are Pro Cannabis, but their actions and policies do not reflect that, if that were TRUE, Then WHY didn’t Obummer legalize it or even propose to legalize it???

            I don’t think you know what you are at all, I do not think you are a “Socialist” at all, you have some social tenancies like myself but I really do no think you are one, if so they I do not think you have a clue as to what being a Socialist really means…And what I described is Socialism above, Not Communism…But with BOTH of these, the Gov’t is in charge and TELLS you what you can and cannot buy, MASSIVE rationing happens with both, except to those who are “Party Members”….Rules don’t apply to those who make the Rules…HMM Sounds kinda familiar. And there is very very limited private property with Socialism…Everything belongs to everyone theoretically…More or less what happens is those who produce are punished while those who just consume are rewarded…That is the simplistic explanation of both Socialism and Communism…
            Maybe you have seen this maybe not:
            SOCIALISM
            You have 2 cows.
            You give one to your neighbor.

            COMMUNISM
            You have 2 cows.
            The State takes both and gives you some milk.

            FASCISM
            You have 2 cows.
            The State takes both and sells you some milk.

            NAZISM
            You have 2 cows.
            The State takes both and shoots you.

            BUREAUCRATISM
            You have 2 cows.
            The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away.

            TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM
            You have two cows.
            You sell one and buy a bull.
            Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows.
            You sell them and retire on the income.

          • 174thandvyse

            There is some truth in what you say about the Democrats. In 1980, when the Republicans won control of the Presidency and the Senate, they started talking pretty crazy on the subject of drugs, and the Democrats…well, not a “peep” out of them!!! Such jellyfish! Probably that’s one reason why I identified with the Socialists…they came out in favor of legalization early on during the 1980s. They didn’t “run for cover” as the Democrats did. As for Obama, I believe that he had enough trouble just trying to convince Congress that he belonged there at all, never mind that he was a former herb aficionado. Still, you are correct in pointing out his inaction on the matter. Maybe he assumed that Hillary was going to be elected, so he decided to just pass the buck.

          • 174thandvyse

            As Lt. Colombo would say, “Just one more thing…”, I did see that poem once.

          • Thebob

            you replied to yourself bro!…

          • Thebob

            So then, please explain to me, what makes you a socialist? I KNOW YOU LIKE POT DO NOT NEED TO HEAR ABOUT LEGALIZATION…It is just redistribution of wealth property? What, cause you have me confused and I do not think you are remotely socialist by how you have presented your work ethic and mentioning of your past…

          • 174thandvyse

            Why do you think that someone who has a good work ethic cannot be a Socialist? Most Socialists were not “n’er do wells”. in fact, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Che Guevara and Fidel Castro were from middle-class backgrounds, and they were highly educated.

          • Thebob

            I know this, and they all but maybe Marx, craved power absolute power, Castro’s and Che were/are Communist not Socialist…

            I don’t think not have a good work ethic makes one a Socialist, I am just trying to get a straight answer from you, cause I think, feel, believe you have no actual clue what you are talking about when it comes to Socialism…Especially from a working man such as yourself…As a Socialist, would have no issue working for another’s gain or picking up slack of the lazy worker…While you both are paid the same wage… Say you are a hemp farmer, you don’t get to choose what you do with your crop, as you own it the field the crop, the seed, etc.. But you have no control over what you do with your crop as with a Socialist Gov’t they would tell you who can or can’t sell to or make or produce with that crop…Hell they could even say, NOPE we have too much and destroy your crop with out being paid for it…
            Or say you are an inventor and improve a product, but, that improvement creates too much competition or down right will push a competitor out of business the Gov’t would be like NOPE!!! you can’t do that, they would take the invention and then use it themselves…

            In a Socialistic Gov’t, Economy, there is no competition and there is no advancements…Why do you think the rest of the world is just now catching up to the West? Cause innovation and creation breeds competition which in-turn creates PROFITS…Which is the back bone of any Economy…Capitalism and Democracy may not be perfect or the best, but they are better than anything else that has been presented this far…Communism failed/failing, Even China isn’t true Communism any more….Socialist Europe, is collapsing under its own weight

          • 174thandvyse

            In ” Socialist Europe”, the Socialistic governments are hardly totalitarian. People own private property like crazy over there! The only thing that makes it different from our system is the taxes waged in Europe, which are Socialistic in nature. That’s the kinda government I admire, in many ways. If the World adopted that system, we could end homelessness and hunger, and, healthcare, in a Generation.

            “Or say you are an inventor and improve a product, but, that improvement creates too much competition or down right will push a competitor out of business the Gov’t would be like NOPE!!! you can’t do that, they would take the invention and then use it themselves…”

            That happens here too…remember the bailouts? The type of government that you described as Socialist is nothing like the type of place that I would support. But the Euro-Socialist societies, where there is a “safety-net” for the benefit of the people, and complete freedom in a lot of areas that we don’t have in this country, is a good place to start.

          • Thebob

            Except free Speech, 2nd Amendment, 4th Amendment, 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th and 10th Amendments that they don’t have nor could they have unless the people decided to stand up for themselves…You say Europe is free…LAUGHABLE, JUST LAUGHABLE, That statement right there proves you know JACK about what you are talking about….Safety net huh, I’d say we have that here while 50% of the country collects Gov’t Hand Outs…Probably of that 50% more than half do not work at all….I am sorry but the POOR in this country CHOOSE TO BE POOR!!!! Plain and Simple…Go take a walk in Europe, bet you have NEVER been there and as I guess you are far less traveled than I, probably never left this country….I have seen what you are asking for and all you will get is more POOR in the streets and LESS LESS LESS FREEDOM….

And since then the late 70’s he has been in Politics…YEAH BERNIE WHITE PEOPLE LIKE YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT’S IT LIKE TO BE POOR Cause you were born with a silver spoon in yo’ mouth….His wife bankrupted the College she ran and is also now under investigation for Fraud…..He’s a real true Socialist right there…Owns a Yacht, two multi million dollar mansions…Do you think he has opened his home neighborhood to Refugees? How much do you think he donates?? Before the Presidential race, from memory here, I do not think he donated any of his money…During the run up to the race, I think he gave maybe 3% to charity…Which is more than Obama…Awesome example of a Socialist right there…Can you provide ONE GOOD Example of a True Socialist and where True Socialism is working???

        I am not for Popo at all, but I doubt you could hack the job even for 1 week…

    Yeah, but the Repubs always prefer the “spare the rod, spoil the child” bullshit.

    • 174thandvyse

      “Bullshit” is the only thing that comes out of Republicans’ mouths!

    • billdeserthills

        It would appear that both Republicans and Democrats are equal opportunity child abusers.

    we have been self medicating on this planet for a long long time and i mean hundred of thousands of years It is just lately we have been sitting in jail for doing so and that blame goes on to the super rich who suppress every herb that works or becomes popular .They need to make us buy there homemade crap to make there bank rolls huge . Now we have the super rich private prison owners who continue to suppress along with the many other rich corporations that has the need to do so for money . The cure for cancer is real but there is no money in cures so the herbal suppressing continue . I f you want to live in a free world or country you need to get out and vote but watch out for those who will say and do anything just to get elected .There is no freedom in site for the non violent folks unless you do your part .

    I’m afraid people are still missing the point of “legal use”. If the states, and they do and will, control the growing, selling, taxing and ultimately arresting of people who are “over the legal limit”, what is so great about that? We want freedom to grow and use without government interference. Are we all so satisfied and happy that the government “ALLOWS” us do something? Have we forgotten the true meaning of freedom? Whisky Tango Foxtrot?

    Marijuana is “THE CURE” because all of the illnesses are caused by Cannabinoid Deficiencies . The police who illegally uphold the crooked law are Heinous Criminals .
