    War on drugs, just say no, this is the result.

    Repeal Prohibition. Again. For all the same reasons.
    Peace on drugs!

    You must live in Simple World, where all Christians think the same thing.

    I am conflicted, sure, good that it is getting over with, but anger lingers because the powers that be knew all along it was evil.

    “Non-violent” drug offenders. Selling drugs to children may not involve violence (well, if someone tried to sell drugs to my kids than there just might be a little violence) but I want that scum off of the streets.

    Christians: followers of Christ. Jesus (the only candidate that I know of for the position of “The Christ”) said these things (paraphrased).

    All the law and the prophets are wrapped up in two commandments, love God with all your heart, soul and strength and the other just like it love your neighbor as you love yourself.

    He that is without sin cast the first stone.

    Don’t judge for with the measure you use you will also be judged.

    Paul/Saul said Love is patient, love is kind, it isn’t jealous, it doesn’t brag, it isn’t arrogant, it isn’t rude, it doesn’t seek its own advantage, it isn’t irritable, it doesn’t keep a record of complaints, it isn’t happy with injustice, but it is happy with the truth. Love puts up with all things, trusts in all things, hopes for all things, endures all things.
    Love never fails

    So CpnLaz and RGwalther, can you apply these attributes to yourselves? A true “christian” is not offended by what you do after all we all “sin”.

    Now as to repealing a law that was put in place so that trees could be used for paper rather than hemp (a costly mistake in early corporate legislation) and the demonetization of a plant and it’s mild effects as compared to say….alcohol…… is just common sense.

    Something in very short supply in congress

    It is precisely because of the illegality that drug dealers sell to anyone, including minors. Were it sold under the auspices of the same laws as alchohol, there would be very few “black market” sales to children, and none that would be legitimate. Liquor stores don’t sell to children because they wish to remain in business. As long as drugs are illegal, their sellers will have nothing encumbering their sale to minors.

    Just as the majority of gun-owners are responsible, the majority of drug users are…..users, not sellers. And the majority of sellers will not sell to kids. Just as alcoholics are unwilling to buy liquor for those underage. And not all users are addicts.

    I have a friend who was seated next to a DEA agent on a commercial flight about 10 years ago. They struck up a conversation. The agent stated that they estimated that three out of every five homes at that time had marijuana in the household; the only reason DEA ever prosecutes pot anymore is because some politician wants to make a splash.

    If you think that democracy means that the will of the people is represented, it’s way past time to re-examine the waste of time, money, and lives that is called the “war on drugs”.

    Attributed to Ghandi: “I think I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians; they are so unlike your Christ.”

    It’s amazing how many of the “Don’t take Christ out of Christmas” crowd couldn’t get Christ out of Christianity fast enough….
    I feel sorry for the people who actually walk the walk. They’ve got to be wondering what weird Bizarro-world their religion has been dragged into.

    DRUGS – Legalize and control…didn’t we learn anything during the days of prohibition (1919-1933)?

    Take away the profit motive and eliminate the
    makers, distributors, pushers and the gangsters who enforce “their” law.

    Take away the profit motive from drugs and eliminate the gun traffic across the border…reducing the profit motive for guns.

    Divert the money spent on the “Drug War” to local good use like recovery centers for those we can now release from their wrongful incarceration.

    Let’s face it, the basis for the war on drugs was basically a war on urban youth; felony convictions for non-violent possession of small amounts resulting in an inability to get a decent job or vote. The conservative mantra: “Keep ’em down.”
