legalize_cannabisLarry Flynt Argues For The Legalization Of Marijuana

With recent polls showing that 50% of Americans favor the legalization of marijuana, Mr. Flynt is asking why steps are not being taken to make that a reality. Mr. Flynt places blame on those that have the most to lose from legal weed: the pharmaceutical, alcohol and prison industries.

Pharmaceutical companies don’t want people turning to pot for pain relief because it means they’ll be spending less on prescription pills. The alcohol industry doesn’t want the competition, either. With mounting scientific evidence that pot is safer than alcohol, legal marijuana would clearly put a major dent in the booze business’ profits. Private, for-profit prisons only make money if they’re full, and that means locking up weed growers and pot smokers.

“This is what’s wrong with America,” said Mr. Flynt. “Our elected politicians ignore the people’s wishes and do the bidding of the corporations that line their pockets with cash.”

    Stop the country in a statewide strike. Blockade all refineries and petrol stations, park cars on all major roads and protest outside every government building you can find. Do this all at the same time and have the Feds see how much money can be lost if weed doesn’t become legal. It’s everyone’s right to protest.

  5. How come EVERY citizen of the US, KNOWS not only the problem, but knows a SOLUTION to that problem. Yet, our “Elected Officials”, who KNEW the solution too, BEFORE they went to Washington. Then once they GET to DC…. They choose rio TOW the PARTY LINE & SELL OUT” to BIG BUSINESS and big PHARMA!.
