Effort vs. drug smugglers stirs cries of injustice

• Arizona Republic
No fear. That was the mantra of Mexican drug smugglers bringing marijuana into the United States.

No fear of arrest. No fear of prosecution. The worst-kept secret on the border for years was that, until more recently, U.S. authorities would not even try to prosecute cases involving less than 500 pounds of marijuana.

Furthermore, U.S. laws and rules of evidence that aim to ensure justice make some cases hard to stick. The most trouble that many small-time smugglers faced was a few days' inconvenience before being deported.

They shouldn't prosecute any MJ on this planet, period.  How fkn ridiculous that humans actually want the gov to regulate a natural plant... all the while pharma kills.


Keep it coming... Humans want what they want and the ficticious agency, called the 'gov' should keep their hands out.  There are certain things the gov should do, like arrest rapists, and child molesters--actual crimes.
