Eric Holder doj marijuanaVoters have clearly stated that they want marijuana prohibition to end in Colorado and Washington. Voters in other states have made it clear via polling that they also want marijuana prohibition to end in their states. For some reason, the federal government doesn’t get the message. Below is a call to action from the Drug Policy Alliance that I encourage all readers to participate in:

Don’t let our opponents get in the way of marijuana legalization. Urge Attorney General Holder to respect states’ marijuana legalization laws!

Message

Respect the States’ Marijuana Legalization Laws

Dear [Decision Maker],

Earlier this year, eight former heads of the Drug Enforcement Administration sent you a letter urging you to officially block the marijuana regulation laws adopted by large majorities of voters in Colorado and Washington. I urge you to reject the request by the former heads of the DEA and respect the will of voters in those two states.

    The decision of whether or not to respect states’ laws is not up to Eric Holder. He doesn’t make policy, he just enforces it. It’s up to the president (or the DEA). Holder will do whatever he’s told.

    The Feds can’t make States enforce state laws that don’t exist. So they have a problem.

    Legalizing marijuana helps reduce reaction time – increasing auto accidents which will help reduce the surplus population.

    Really not crazy about the photo you’ve used to depict Eric Holder. Your site is very professional and well written but using images like these brings things down to a bit of a high school level. Also, you’re goading him and his staff on. If they see this blog sot with that picture, do you think they’ll be more compassionate to the case you and the Drup Policy Alliance are making or less likely to show sympathy? Sure, they are being oppressive against cannabis, and this sucks, but let’s remember, all too often, “an eye for an eye makes everyone blind”.

    we know the reason the feds aren’t interested in legalization; there are too many vested interests profiteering from the drug war boondoggle, not the least of which, America’s huge weapons and ‘defense’ industries + law enforcment + judges + lawyers + drug cartels + prison industry + drug rehabs + testing labs… drug prohibition is an INDUSTRY. follow the money.

    Washington also uses the bogus war on drugs as a pretext to assert control and dominate resource-rich regions of the world where it has geostrategic interests.

    it’s called drug war capitalism
    google it

    This Eric Holder character sold guns to mexican cartels which later killed an American serviceman. So ask yourself…if we put the cartels out of business to who is he going to sell those guns to?
