Re: The War against Hemp
Possibly, to some extent, but I don't buy the "gateway" drug theory. I wouldn't touch Heroin but i would smoke a joint again. There is a medical case you can make against heroin and cocaine. Both of those drugs are physically addictive and medically dangerous. Marijuana is not physically addictive and is much safer then alcohol. I have never heard of someone OD'ing on it.
Besides, if it was legalized and turning into a cash crop, don't you think the extensive and fertile farmlands in the US would be come a major supplier? Thus alleviating much of the market for the criminal elements outside the country?
Regarding law enforcement...send them to protect the borders! ;)
I think then, you could direct their resources to actually stopping more violent crime instead of wasting taxpayer money on chasing some college kids smoking pot.
