    I totally agree. The new patriot act, that's total bullshit and infringement on our rights. The US thinks that we'll see the light and turnaround when Kerry gets in office, but I think it's going to be the same bullcrap again only a democrat is saying, and is less harsh (? Lesser of two evil?). I wish that pot would be legalized. I think it's holding back the US cause weed can be used as shirts, paper, all that good stuff and it would be cheaper and less harsh on the trees (when it comes to paper) and with smoking weed we can see the evils of America. They don't want that happening. Land of the free, yeah...

    That's my 120 cents (or words).

    I think it should be illegal, but six months is quite a harsh penalty for just a pipe.

    a true land of freedom from both stress and mundaneness for all would be a wonderful thing to create. i don't know where we could build it where we wouldn't get shot at or be taking it away from somebody else who was already there though. other of course then in our minds and on this 'city of the mind'/internet.
    --
    perhapse if we were to begin by not expecting any indiology, economic theory, belief or form of government to automagicly get us there we might be able to start making steps in its general direction. steps like lowering stress by boycotting aggressiveness. steps like sincerly romantacizing and rewarding people for permitting themselves to enjoy the exercize of whatever creative and or intillectual capacities they may happen to have without rejecting out of hand the inhierent mutual responsibility to avoid causing harm, or at least recognizing that whatever is harmed we all have to live with whatever kind of pile of crap doing so has made of it.
    --
    freedom begins with the self dicipline to stop swinging our arms before they get anywhere near where someone else's nose begins. whithout that it is basicly ourselves we are bitching at.
    --
    not that there's any lack of legitimate cause for complaint. only that we could stop creating a market for it.
    and somehow we are going to have to.
    not because i'm saying so or because i'd like to live in some kind of eco-socialist quasi-anarchic paradise
    simple in order to keep eating and breathing
    even if our world isn't quite to that point yet
    economic fanatacism certainly appears to be stearing us in that direction
    however indirectly by means of the consiquences of it

    Freedom does not really exist in the US. I don't know about other countries so please, if you are from outside the US, please respond to this thread so we can all learn from you!!!
    First, please see my post in America Attacks Forum entitled -I want to vomit.
    Second, realize that everyone and their mother in this country is trying to ban everything from gay marriage to wearing pants below the waist (Louisiana just past a law about that one). Mississippi is also trying to ban women from wearing thongs. (personally, I think what is under my skirt is my own damn buisness and no one elses) We are also trying to tell terminally ill patients that they can NOT have a joint, but we can kill them with chemotherapy.
    We need a new movement. I'll start by living my life THE WAY I FREAKIN' WANT TO!!!! Any other ideas?

    Its not that we need a new movement, it is just that the movement needs to pick up pace. The are many people who agree with us, just nobody is brave enough to do something about it. We need a larger base to draw from. We need charismatic 'leaders' to strengthen out numbers. Perhaps some folk bands or something. The problem with today's youth is that they have been ground into apathy by the public schools and the media. If we want a revolution, the people must first realize that they need one.

    So who then should our leaders of this movement be?

    We can do it! If we are the ones that care, then shouldn't it be us?

    that's ridiculous fucking bullshit man, come move to Canada with me! :)
    i don't know if i'm for legalizing it tho, the government will totally take over; they'll jack up the price, and add ALL kinds of shit so u wont even get the real shit anymore.
     
  14. well the major reason why I think that pot is illigal, it is uncontrolled, and anything that is uncontrolled can promote violence. You hear about alot of murders and suicides due to drugs. Sure, why should the govt' care right, were our own person right? well, in all actuality if you think about it, it weakens our nation in their eyes because it makes us more prone to being powerless, and you know the US of A cannot have that! just my 2 cents.

    There haven't been any freedoms in this country for a really long time and it's getting worse all the time. I don't smoke, but I think the herb should be legal. I work in drug rehab. Part of my job is to teach the "evils" of each drug. So help me I can't find any about this wonderful herb. So I go to my group wearing my hemp socks and carrying my hemp purse. And my hair is still wet from my morning shower with hemp shampoo. My face glistens with my hemp moisterizer. My notes are written on hemp paper. And my lunch probably has hemp seed oil in it. Usually when it's on the schedule for me to teach about marijuana, I just change the schedule. I can't tell the group how good it is, but I won't tell them that it is bad. It's much safer than alcohol. It just doesn't have a big industry behind it demanding tht it be mde legal.

    Woodenfrog, it's your fault for doing something illegal. You can't complain about it when you knew it to be wrong. To the rest of you, if you hate America so much, move, get out, don't look back. You think it is bad here? Try going on a few mission trips to see what the rest of the world is like.

    PS,
    Islands are sold on ebay all the time. All of you get together, buy an island, form your own government, and see how bad it gets and how fast.

    I hate it when some people suggest to others that have criticisms of life in America to "get out if they hate it so much." I really don't think who have criticisms of American life "hate" the country. I think people realize here that no place is perfect, but America isn't as "free" as it claims (maybe no country is).

    Unfortunately, the laws says weed are illegal, but there's so much hyprocrisy regarding the issue of weed it isn't even funny.
