on Measure 73
I argue for full legalization AND NO regulation. Let me explain why:
1st off, to hear that sheriff say there is no money in the drug war is ridiculous, considering all the black helicopter fly overs I get here in the country.
I am a medicinal herb grower of all types. Thanks to the attitude that plants are dangerous drugs, even though they have been used by humanity for pleasure and pain safely and successfully for thousands of years, now the entire medical and prison industrial complex want to treat them as drugs.
Plants are NOT drugs. They ARE tested. Time tested. Regulation breeds corruption and corporate control. Black markets and illegality breed crime. My entire herbal extract business has been shut down by ridiculous laws the FDA implemented this year. I am an acupuncturist who is arguabley the best qualified to use herbs, and now doctors, who get ZERO training in herbs in school, want to regulate them along with corporate pharmaceutical interests. IT ALL MAKES ME SICK!!!
