Cutting Off Your Nose To Spite Your Face (continued)

Today I am blogging two responses and my comment, from the post on Daily Kos July 9, 2009

Talk About Cutting Off Your Nose To Spite Your Face (about legalizing medical marijuana)

The only way this will happen is if Big Pharma can figure out a
way to make money from it. There are many possible effective
treatments and cures that never get a second look because they
are naturally occurring. Unless Pharma can tweak a molecule to
make a buck, they won't even look at it. If they don't want it,
we won't get it - period. Sad, isn't it? - "Hold fast to
dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that
cannot fly." -Langston Hughes (by luckylizard of KOS)
---
There are many powerful players opposing the common sense idea of
legalizing marijuana: Alcohol, Tobacco, Pharmaceutical (as noted by luckylizard),
Police unions, Corrections unions, Law enforcement agencies,
"tradition family values" types, religious
organizations, drug testing companies, etc.

All of these guys profit from the drug war and it is in their interest that it continues.

Just one more example of the sad, but undeniable fact that this country is a corporate oligarchy.

"Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight." - Albert Schweitzer (BY Apost8 of KOS)

thinkingblue: Just for the hell of it I thought I might research (via google) and try to get an answer (or a manipulation of facts) as to why "THE MAN" refuses to put forth a sensible bill to legalize marijuana. Then I remembered... "Oh, I think I've already tried and also blogged this perplexing question...

Along with, signing numerous petitions and writing letters to our public officials
concerning this stupid-make-no-sense-at-all, law we are forced to live under...

Still, even though we are sliding into an abyss of financial ruin, STILL, this archaic law stands antagonistically, in our faces, unrelenting and challenging us to break the law. I know we humans have built an enormous (out of control) political machine called "living", but someone, somewhere must poke their conditioned mind outside the culture box and question ... "I think there is something wrong with this picture."

Until that time, I will go on signing petitions, writing letters and contributing small amounts to any organization (i.e. MMP) who is unafraid to demand that this law be eradicated and marijuana become available legally... thinkingblue
