Adelson’s donation significantly boosts the anti-pot group’s budget. According to the group’s end-of-September filing, Campaign for a Safe and Healthy Massachusetts had raised $608,748.73.
The “antiaddiction advocates” (as those wealthy prohibitionists call themselves) waste ample resources to protect a prohibition that has literally never provided one shred of concrete evidence proving any effectiveness, but demonstrable (and too often horrific, if not deadly) proof of destructiveness.
They are so ironically addicted to prohibition, they put a lot of money to sustain their fix.
Well, at least they put their own money into selfishly ruining millions of non-rights-infringing lives judicially (i.e. “constitutionally”) via the Commerce Clause (i.e. a blatantly irrational — so undeniably corrupt — application of that terribly vague clause that should only apply to regulating commerce against state favoritism, so not banning any activity). Other prohibitionists in effect steal from taxpayers (or embrace corruption in the thriving black market sustained by prohibition) to get their fix.
I am relatively glad to see progress against prohibition by way of promoting the ‘tax and regulate’ method (a traditional leftist approach that I tend to disagree with due to regulation — i.e. textured prohibition — basically being equally destructive), but I would love to see a lot more public expression that maturely condemns prohibition as the massively destructive scam that it always has been.
We cannot just legalize cannabis (a powerful psychedelic), while other drugs remain outrageously illegal in the “land of the free” — that illegality serving only as leverage for sanctioned thuggery to ruin millions of more non-rights-infringing lives in the land of severe (if not nationally destabilizing) corruption via monstrous hypocrisy.
Cannabis is popular enough to generate a sufficient public press back against powerfully entrenched prohibition addicts abusively leveraging the automatically assigned public credibility associated with the badge (or other community leadership such). Other drugs are not, so it could take decades to end Certain Drug Prohibition (if you will) outright for genuine public safety — while drug abuse is treated as the health issue that it most certainly sanely is (an issue that, while seriously important and sometimes critical within the lives affected by it, is only applicable to well-less than 1% of the American population, according to statistics even cited — i.e. pitifully spun — by prohibitionists).
When the pro-prohibition ads are publicly presented in my area, so too will my response to their flagrant corruption via social media and whatever other area necessary to help society uproot that hideous entrenchment.
The prohibition lie and theft machine must stop now. While calling our nation the land of the free is demonstrably a lie against the self-evident and unalienable right to liberty (i.e. the liberty to do no objective — not, at best, weakly suggestive — harm), hopefully the home of the brave is not.
I am an honest freak (or reasonably responsibly balanced "misfit", if you prefer) of an artist working and resting to best carefully contribute towards helping society. Too many people abuse reasoning (e.g. 'partial truth = whole truth' scam), while I exercise reason to explore and express whole truth without any conflict-of-interest -- all within a sometimes offbeat style of psychedelic artistry.
