The War on Cannabis Users is an Expensive Failure

I have lived through over 40 years of seeing and reading about people being busted for growing or selling and of course it has an effect on some people - they have to find a new source or grow for themselves - but in terms of overall availability I have seen no change and in that 40 years the Government have spent many BILLIONS of pounds, hundreds of billions fighting their "war."

A war has two sides; in this case there is just one side - "them"

"They" are invaders, invaders of our Rights and our lifestyle.

Indeed a costly and for me pointless war, but like so many wars it appears they will fight to the death - the death of the people they claim to be fighting for.

And what is the war about - it seems to be about stopping people from growing a versatile and beneficial plant that poses no danger at all to the vast majority of users - and if it was about THC then the Government should allow the more widespread and license free cultivation of low-THC plants that we generally call "hemp".

"Cowardice asks the question - is it safe? Expediency asks the question - is it politic? Vanity asks the question - is it popular? But conscience asks the question - is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right." [Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr].
