  1. Legalize marijuana so Whites can dominate it in a few short years with a quantum leap! All the 'runners' of color are locked up so the headstart is unavoidable. And… their off…

  2. I smoked a bowl to this. The only crime I committed as a result is eat some junk food, read a book, and watch this video. Maybe it's illegal because marijuana makes you feel love. We wouldn't want to feel love in a country that needs war to fuel it's most sick individuals.

  3. The drug companies lobby, lie and do all they can to keep it illegal – they can't "patent" hemp, and it would make "useless" so many of their products!

  4. Reich is dead on. The war on drugs has been lost, but we have ignorant politicians who continue this costly prohibition. Did we not learn what happened when we prohibited alcohol? We are as one author put it, " An idiot America."

  5. Great video, however it does not talk about how imperative it is to Utilize Environmentally! 5/24/2019- All the worlds Industries using flawed "Energies & Materials" that have been outdated for 82 years now…intentionally.
    1 )- Hemp requires Half the Water that cotton needs with stronger, softer clothes. – Hemp IS the Strongest soft Fiber on Earth!
    2 )- 1 acre of Hemp produces the same amount of Paper as 4.1 acres of Trees, while producing superior Paper products.
    3 )- 1 acre of Hemp produces more Oxygen than 25 acres of Forest. Cannabis Also Purifies its environment where it grows.
    4 )- Hemp can replace Petroleum , fossil fuels – Henry Fords 1941 Hemp Car was 4.7 Better for the Earth than TODAYS ELECTRIC CAR. – prob. 50 times better than Petroleum made & run Cars. Not only did the HempCar Run on hemp Fuel, it was built mostly with hemp. His hemp materials he used to build his Car were 10 times Stronger and Lighter than steel, half the weight of other cars.
    5 )- Nearly all Medicines are Flawed, cannabis is a natural part our Physiology, all mammals have E.C.S., we co-evolved eating it fresh (no high) nothing western Medicine can create, fits our bodies receptors as perfectly as cannabis cannabinoids.
    6 )- There are at least 30,000 toxic sites just in the U.S. where hemp should be planted to absorb heavy metals, toxicity and radiation. Hemp used to grow Everywhere from pole to pole, unfortunately it has been eradicated over the last hundred years.
    7 )- All Plastics could be made from Hemp, sustainable to biodegradable and without Leching petroleum Toxins lasting eons.
    8 )- Hempcrete is the ultimate building material ; Strongest,1/6 the weight of concrete, mold, fire, water, Resistant, breathable, best hot & cold insulator, ect. The implications are staggering, just think about the Health, Medical, Economic, Environmental benefits!
    9 )- Bio-Mass Energy could replace Nuclear & Coal Energies. The more we utilize everywhere else, the less Nuclear & Coal.
    10)- hemp Agriculture does NOT require Pesticides and Herbicides as well as tons of Chemicals that are Poisonous.
    – Ect. 60,000+ Environmental & Biologic superior improvements with cannabis.
    — RED ALERT – ignorance is no longer bliss,…it is fatal. Pollution is Earths #1 Killer of all Living. RUSH Q) What's the rush? A) critical stage, waiting for everyone to Educate themselves (Wake Up).
    We are Poisoning the Planet with Flawed Energies and Fuels and that Creates Disease. Pollution creates DISEASE while also destroying; Land, Water & Air! We Are killing our Earth, at least all inhabitants. Not only did "they" Suppress the Inventors and their inventions, but the Important Information for US to make decisions. The big $ that manipulates the worlds Governments, also manipulate the MEDIA. The Earth has been continually breaking hot weather Records and Unity is always our solution.
    The fact that we Use Trees and Fossil Fuels are Criminal. Using Trees and Petroleum creates environmental destruction, yet it continues every day. Our planet should Still be Healthy, man made (produced) energies & fuels Should all have been made with Plant Materials. If we Utilized Cannabis, it would do a Better job with Far Less Pollution. Not only does Cannabis work Better for energy uses, it also Purifies the environment where it grows! It's a no-brainer (again). There are actually 60,000 Improvements if we Utilized it in our industries & homes. Hemp Creates Environmental prosperity as well as Biologic, the Endo-cannabinoid system is vital for good health and yet the E.C.S. is still NOT taught in medical schools because of Restricted Politics!
    We were supposed to follow Henrys plan to Grow our own; Food, Fuel, Energy, Medicines, Industrial Material, Bartering, Etc., however big $ had other Plans. Instead of poisoning our property, we should be growing food. Ford wanted US to grow & Sell to all Industries. Plant material in all products creates Carbon Neutrality to Negative!
    Our world should have evolved Completely Different IF the inventions from "Nicola Tesla and Henry Ford" had Never Been Suppressed! Did you know that in 1926, Tesla filed document AF:5362525 to the U.S. Patent office with the title; Hemp Modulator and Also stated that Hemp will replace Petroleum and Medicines! 1 out of 20 Americans Died from cancer before 1937 Prohibition, since then, cancer has Steadily Risen to todays 1 out of 2 !
    Earths Temperature has been Steadily RISING! Red-Alert! Our House Is On Fire! This will only end well if we start planting HEMP everywhere! It grew everywhere until the last 100 yrs. Hemp has Nothing to do with "getting high", it was made Illegal to (suppressing N.E.S.). All forms of cannabis ( marijuana, hemp, ect.) come from ONE SINGLE PLANT, the Most Productive on earth. They didn't want US to know, that we Could Grow All the Variations for Production & Sale and All industries would buy it.
    It's all about "Sustainability". Cannabis could potentially create World Peace because of it's Sustainable Implications. Hemp can be used for just about Everything and do a Better job! Here are a few of the 60,000 ways Pot is Superior for Our well being and the Earths -fb=Utilize Potman

  6. Legalizing drugs would decimate the cartels which presently have a monopoly. The laws against drugs are what brings t
    In the profit.

  7. Here's what gets me: I have type 2 diabetes, gastroparesis, high blood pressure, and severe joint pains everywhere from when I worked at the lumberyard and injured pretty much everything. After the medications I've been on, the insulin, the blood pressure meds, painkillers, etc., marijuana and CBD products have been the ONLY things that have helped relieve any of my symptoms. It also has helped with my depression and anxiety, which I was previously on medications that nearly killed me and actually put me in the health crisis I'm in now. Hell, it even helps with my insomnia. I had a doctor try telling me that the weed is what caused my symptoms, when that was literally physically impossible. So it's not just politics, but actual medical professionals are lying about this shit. It's ridiculous.

  8. The health benefits of wine are debated among scientists. Personally I use red wine when I cook. I have never even tried marijuana and I don't think I have missed something important. Once a couple of Jehova's witnesses knocked at my door and asked: "Are you happy?". I was not interested in their recipe for happiness, but neither do I think I have missed something important.

  9. While I do agree with this, the main problem is going to be controlling who grows and sells it. Many would want to avoid paying the tax

  10. I wish it was not legal in CA. We had drug addicts move in back of us. They smoked so much we could smell the smoke in our house. They had parties. They were up smoking late at night.

    Their yard became a mess. They were acting really weird when they were high.

    It gave me the creeps & I didn’t feel safe.

    I’ve heard the same story from other people. I knew a woman who had a dealer move next door to her. Her entire apartment & clothes smelled like pot. People were outside smoking all night long.

    It’s a hell for you those of us who do not use drugs & reject that lifestyle.

    It encroaches on our rights to a drug free, peaceful environment.

    It was hard on all of my neighbors having a drug house. The people next door had a new baby. Neighbors called the police.

    It went on for a long time.

    It’s really not good for people & neighborhoods. These guys were not Mexican.

    Pot should not be legal in neighborhoods.

  11. 43 people that dislike are resentful conservatives who where never able to go to even a sweet 15 party, where shamed by their religious parents and pretend they are little angels who have never smoked cigarrettes and never have dirty toughts cause "shhh jesus is watching you". Pathetic.

  12. Tell voters that we can use the legalization of recreational marijuana to stop cops from conducting illegal searches (The "I smell marijuana" probably cause).

  13. Can we start by calling it by its actual name? CANNABIS

    Marijuana is the racialized political term that only keeps the topic politicized.

  14. Finally, someone who has correctly identified the hypocrisy associated with the 1930's movement to ban pot and corner the hemp industry. (the only source of rope for navies of the 1930's).

  15. For every drug that is legalized, the Latin American cartels take heavy losses. Legalize it all and wipe them out, there goes the "drug-dealing immigrants" boogeyman so beloved by the right.

  16. Your actually stupid.Your ph.d only impresses your own echo chamber.Outside of your own kind you would be eaten alive with all your enlightened subjective ideological driven nonsense that your kind actually believes passes for higher intellect.

  17. While living in AZ the doctors I had gave me every kind of painkiller you can name. But when I asked about using marijuana? They said that if I did, they would call the cops on me! Now I live with many different ailments because of very stupid laws! Here's to another bowl !!!

  18. "But .. but .. marijuana use kills people!!"
    Except that whether or not you think that claim is true, what no one brings up when using that fear tactic is how many people die to smoking due to lung cancer and deaths caused by alcohol because they wouldn't like where that would lead.

  19. Yep. It needs legalized. But idiot trump won’t even allow research into its use for Medical purposes. So how can you expect that moron to allow anything to go forward when he isn’t interested in facts. Well fake facts. Like the news. What an idiot.

  20. as someone recently figuring out i need marijuana for medical reasons, i am even more in favor of legalization

  21. Yeah. It has never stopped moron potheads anyway. If you need a chemical to recreate or relax, you are stupid, dull witted and lack imagination. Oh and P.S. regular use of pot causes cannabanoid hyperemesis. Endless vomiting for days until you wish you were dead. Also weed dick is 100% a thing. Legalize it now! Another darwin award drug in action.

  22. They also need to come up with a new random testing method for THC detection. Unlike other drugs, THC is detectable weeks after use.

  23. Maybe you should have mentioned that it is a schedule 1 drug, though it does not meet the definition of a schedule 1 drug, and therefore, the current federal designation as a schedule 1 drug is illegal

  24. The prohibition of marijuana actually stem from the end of alcohol prohibition. The federal department thought they would loose jobs if they had no bootleggers to chase. So they immediately strated a disinformation campaign on marijuana. Successfully outlawing all hemp and associated products for decade's. It is as stupid now, as it was then!
