Absoloutely outstanding, I

Absoloutely outstanding, I wonder how much a tv spot for this would cost?

War on Drugs

I agree, the War on Drugs has not solved anything! All it is doing is costing the taxpayers which sux! I am also sick and tried of the police arresting people for drugs. Go find the real criminals such as rapest, murders, thieves, wife beaters, child molesters, and even the people that abandon babys.

I Second the Vote of Absolutely Outstanding!

I am speechless. It is very rare that a political or social movement that I believe in is supported by people with enough money to create informative and helpful propaganda of this eloquence. I use the word propaganda, meaning only "a form of communication designed to influence public opinion on an issue or general ethos." This is simply brilliant and something I'm willing to put my money behind. A TV spot for this or something to this affect is, I hope, an eventuality. BRAVO!

Alcohol/Marijuana, whats up?

Employers all over insist on drug testing, but its OK if you get hammered on alcohol every night....shouldnt we have the same right to smoke weed on our own time? Who is actually a worse employee, a secret drunk, or a secret pothead? My son cannot get a job because of these ridiculous and intrusive policies. When are employers going to stop being "Big Brother" and butt out of our free time?
