My question is, Does anyone have verifiable statistics showing how many people in the nation are against pot freedom? I know and have talked to local folks who are totally convinced that repealing drug laws would destroy peace in America. They refer to one or two countries in Europe that have done this, and it seems to have worked out badly for those countries. But, of course, those statistics are skewed because there are other things at play in those countries, and their kind of freedom is different than ours. Do Americans in general really want drug laws and the war on drugs?

What a waste of time and money... with tragic results for this man and his family. Where was the local sheriff in all this? It is "high time" that the states and local jurisdictions kick the feds out and keep them out. The Constitution of the United States and our respective State Constitutions grant specific enumerated powers to government... period. Can't find cannabis or anything else I want to eat or smoke in there anywhere. Wake Up America... or is it too damn late? Nuff Said...
