A few years ago a Train Engineer was high on drugs and caused a major train accident near Baltimore Maryland. Their were deaths related to the crash due to the Engineer on drugs. So do you feel we should legalize them? Oh by the way, that Engineer, who was a union member kept his job. How about the auto workers smoking pot on their lunch time? Its ok for them to take drugs? No wonder why we have so many recalls in the auto industry.
That was a ridiculous point when it happened. The individual abused his position. It had nothing to do with legalities or lies causing them. Legal or not the engineer is to blame not the substance. You are saying it would be just fine and dandy if he killed people while legally drunk. Ridiculous and the more people see the more will agree that all you do is profit on lies to maintain your profit. Your job or keeping renewable resources out of competition. Bloated cop budgets and fossil fools running their vehicles and offices around the globe. Now your gossip is boring, bring some fact jack. Unions also protect the corporation from law suits for faulty urine tests by eliminating them beforehand. Or discrimination suits based on profiling and targeting employees for negative test results. Politically eliminating competition or just competition. How do you think we could have survived as a species without cannabis? Thousands of years of use, making ship sails, building materials
or clothing or nutritional seeds and oil. Medicine
or organic deterrents to other weeds and pests. Non crud oil alternative to OPEC and this is what you prohibit by perpetuating this redneck herring gossip.
"We have spent over a trillion dollars trying to eradicate the world's most beneficial plant off the face of the earth. Imagine what a better world this would be if that money had been spent on treatment, education and studying the medical benefits of marijuana."
-- Steve Hager - High Times Editor (1988 - 2003)
Un-American paranoid dung worriers have cost us one trillion dollars eliminating the most versatile plant on the planet. How many trains wrecked due to sleep deprivation or legal booze and Pharmaceuticals, bad hair days and emotional trauma. PTSD
? ADD, ADHD
all treated successfully with cannabis and all contributing to train wrecks when it isn't. Shall I continue? Lets try to find something prohibition hasn't fucked up, I think it would be easier. Ganjawar Prevents Brain Tumor Treatment
I have to wonder how many train wrecks are from brain tumors interfering with performance. US Asked To Stop False
Information on Medical Pot[/url] but would they listen? Noooo. More at stake for the D.E.A.th Merchants than reputations as liars and tax thieves. No money for the kids schools or nutrition or shelter but you want to toss more at this gossip war. If the root of the tree is poison so be the fruit and the Czar proves it everytime it speaks. It's his job. The Drug Czar is Required by Law to Lie
The bottom line is The majority of prohibitionists profit on the drug war, and their only motive is Policing for Profit
. Forfeiture $quads
have a problem giving up free christmas gifts and cash looting and pillaging families. Sometimes naive enough to turn in their own siblings resulting in homelessness, Puppycide
and unemployment. They are obedient thugs serving the Prohibition Profiteers
. It amazes me how many conservatudes still cling to the old reefer madness when its obvious why prohibitions are never reliable means of stopping abuse. As Lincoln and the Woman's Christian Temperance League advocated temperance not prohibition. The only reason today is the same as 1920 removing farmers home stilled tractor and heating fuel and 1937 removing Hemp and Ganja and GanjaRx. Prohibition is not the answer unless you believe the streets provide quality assurance and consistency over a regulated market then you should stop the gossip and isolated insolents as if they were the norm. The Conservative Argument for Legalization
"Narcotics police are an enormous, corrupt international bureaucracy ... and now fund a coterie of researchers who provide them with 'scientific support' ... fanatics who distort the legitimate research of others. ... The anti-marijuana campaign is a cancerous tissue of lies, undermining law enforcement, aggravating the drug problem, depriving the sick of needed help, and suckering well-intentioned conservatives and countless frightened parents."

Cannabis use and Safer Driving
Ass.Woman Torre' Drudged Driving Bill profits on piss tasting
If you can't tell if someone is inebriated, you are asking for bankruptcy or recalls. Not from smoking pot, especially off the job while the metabolites remain for weeks it has no bearing on performance. Again the gossip you bring has no bases other than perpetuating the Ganjawar on innocent sick people, children and the poor, mostly people of color. While the elitist sit in their ivory towers toking their brains out. Screwing thousands of lives outsourcing to India. If you were serious about stopping inebriated drivers or workers there are non-invasive tests like the FIT 2000
30-second impairment test. "FIT 2000 is directly relevant to employers interested in high quality, exacting, detail work, as well as general safety and quality, without violating the privacy of the employee'

The ACLU said that the federal government spent $11.7million to test nearly 29,000 workers in 1990. Only 153 employees flunked, putting the cost of finding each user at $77,000.

American High Society
a subchapter from "Hemp: Lifeline To The Future," by Chris Conrad. Dr. Burke, president of the American Historical Reference Society and a consultant for the Smithsonian Institute, counted seven early presidents as cannabis smokers: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, Zachary Taylor and Franklin Pierce.
The Indian vadas sang of Cannabis as one of the divine nectars, able to give man anything from good health and long life to visions of the gods. The Zend-Avesta of 600 B.C. mentions an intoxicating resin, and the Assyrians used Cannabis as an incense as early as the ninth century B.C.
Book: HASHISH! Robert Connell Clarke
The First Cultivated Crop
Ancient and modern historians, archaeologists, anthropologists and philologists all agree that cannabis is one of mankind's oldest cultivated crops. The weaving of hemp fibre began 10,000 years ago, at approximately the same time as pottery making and prior to metal working. Not surprisingly, records of the use of cannabis as both a drink and an incense can be traced back to some of the earliest civilizations and cultures, as we shall see with a look at cannabis incense in the Ancient World.
Cannabis as an incense was used in the Temples of Assyria and Babylon `because its aroma was pleasing to the gods.'
Ancient Temple Hashish Incense! Did Jesus Inhale?
The Tree of Life...
This information clearly documents the use of cannabis incense to the very beginnings of recorded history, and shows that it could well have played a pivotal role in the development of the wonderful mind that so many of today's people take for granted and don't use. You need only look around at the sorry state of our once pristine planet to see that most modern people have lost the ability to think for themselves, and are more than willing to be led around by despicable leaders, and work their lives away in the name of consumerism.
"This evidence serves to project the origin of
hashish back to the earliest beginnings of history."

an American physician and authority on marijuana,
The Scythians High Plains Drifters
It could well be that in later times the cannabis smoke had somewhat mellowed the Scythians, and their spiritual leaders directed them towards becoming a more civilized people. The ancient Greek historian Ephorus wrote in the fourth century BC that the Scythians 'feed on mares milk and excel all men in justice'. His comments were followed in the first century BC by Strabo, who wrote that 'we regard the Scythians as the most just of men and the least prone to mischief, as also far morefrugal and independent of others than we are.'
Galen wrote in the second century that it was customary to promote hilarity and happiness at banquets by giving the guests hemp (Reininger, 1967: 14-15).
Practical, inexpensive fire-resistant construction material. Isochanvre, a rediscovered French building material made from hemp hurds mixed with lime, actually petrifies into a mineral state and lasts for many centuries. Archeologists have found a bridge in the south of France, from the Merovingian period (500-751 A.D.), built with this process. Hemp has been used throughout history for carpet backing. Hemp fiber has potential in the manufacture of strong, rot resistant carpeting -eliminating the poisonous fumes of burning synthetic materials in a house or commercial fire, along with allergic reactions associated with new synthetic carpeting.“
