The below desperate man succumbing to the fallacious arguments that were initially presented by the Communists in Russia and Nazi Germany. The people were desperate and pushed in to agreeing with whoever came along that had a positive spin. This man, I believe, is desperate and although well intentioned, doesn’t really understand that legalizing this is only going to put the next drug (“harsh drug”) in to the status the marijuana enjoys today. The cartels across the border don’t care what they deal in. They care only about the profit. Heroine is just as easy and cocaine is ready many forms. The reality is that the geographies that HAVE legalized it have an increase in crime due to, what amounts to, institutionalized advertising. The reason that the the government may WANT to make it legal is not to “make money” through taxes, but to make money through promulgation and increase of head count in UN “social” programs. You see. The drug and crimes associated with distribution aren’t really milking enough from you the tax payer, so now they have to go another rout. Conversely, the drug dealers aren’t making enough “just” from drugs alone. They are multi tasking. People trafficing seems to be where it’s at, along side the drugs. They go hand in hand. It’s a 2 for 1 stop. Get your drug and a girl all at the same place. No need to go to a few different “distributors.” It’s a special type of Wal Mart.

A caller to his show – an example of the brain damage associated with long term use. To all those that say that POT isn’t dangerous, please, listen to this person that called in to the show. I have talked to people that sound similar with moderate and even “light” usage. To say that it’s harmless is an illusion. Those who say that it is, please, try and understand where the core of the assertion is. If it’s simply that it’s too hard to control, then look at HOW it’s been attempted.Vodpod videos no longer available.
The drug dealers are crippling those who are their patronage. Yet, the victims of this brain damage are so addicted that they protect their perpetrators.
Here is another – absolutely true. But let the “government official” pot heads tell you that the only way is to legalize it. Why not just give up our sovereignty as a nation, because it’s too hard to keep it. Think about it. Isn’t it just because the fed has been inept at the punishments and deterrents?Vodpod videos no longer available.
The real reason why LAW enforcement isn’t working on drugs, is because there is no real “punishment.” It’s more lucrative to continue the idea that the drug trade can’t be fixed, then to create a penal code with punishments and deterrents that MAKE SENSE. Instead, the politician give politically correct lip service and g-d forbid you stand up and call them liars and inept.
California ‘High Risk’ Prisoners Wrongly Released Due to Computer ErrorsVodpod videos no longer available.
Published May 26, 2011
SACRAMENTO – Computer errors resulted in some 450 inmates with “a high risk for violence” being wrongly released from California prisons, the Los Angeles Times reported in its Thursday edition.
On top of the 450, more than 1,000 prisoners, deemed to be at high risk of committing drug and property crimes, were also released into the community.
All the offenders were placed on “non-revocable parole” — a program that does not require them to report to parole officers. The program, which started in January 2010, was intended for inmates considered to be at low risk of reoffending.
Reviewing 200 case files of the 10,134 former inmates on non-revocable parole last July, investigators uncovered that 31 were not eligible for the program, while nine of the 31 were deemed likely to commit a violent crime.
It was estimated, using a 15 percent error rate found in the sample, that more than 450 violent prisoners were let go in the program’s first seven months.
However, the findings were disputed by prison officials who said that some of the computer glitches had since been corrected, making the margin of error eight percent, according to a report by the inspector general.
None of the wrongly-released offenders have since been placed on supervised parole or returned to jail, inspector general spokeswoman Renee Hansen said.
Authorities declined to name the concerned prisoners and would not say what crimes they had committed.
On Monday, a divided Supreme Court ordered California to reduce prison overcrowding, a decision that could force the release of tens of thousands of inmates.
