“correct prison guard unions....police....liquor industry...all that ilk are fighting it....let's look at it this way Guzman had BILLIONS of dollars of CASH at his house! unfrigginbelivable...he was one of the richest men on the planet....to make that kind of money it has to stay illegal ...lwhen you have that amount of free floating cash that depends on it being illegal....believe you me there will be a lot of skulduggery involved to keep this old insanity alive”

“Wake up america....this is insane. compared to alcohol pot is very benign...stop the war...it does not work for any normal people...if your heavily invested in prisons and law enforcement then great...but that does not help most Americans and it is biased and unfair to have a lethal drug legal... and a mild low impact drug demonized...stupid stupid stupid ....I know many pot users who could pass any test and act look and behave normal with all higher mental functions intact...alcoholics?...no way....red faced... shaking slurred... clumsy... violent ...careless...accident prone...you get the picture”

“There are mistakes and people who are innocent sometimes get executed...please someone rationalize that one for me!!! Execution is barbaric and expensive and lowers the bar set on human life... and diminishes us as a nation. Revenge?...Punishment? whatever....life in prison would be much better....whatever is decided a circus of cheering people is humans at their lowest”

“I see a perfect agreement that could be formed here. Republicans give up on executions if Democrats give up on abortion. The taking of life is stopped and everyone SHOULD be okay with that compromise.”

“I'm all for ending the violence ...but don't call it senseless violence...it makes perfect sense if you are trying to control the turf and distribution of illegal drugs...how soon we forget....in prohibition there were gang shootings and massacres also....we learned that not only did prohibition not work but it put big piles of money ...unrecorded loose change in some very aggressive violent hands...Guzman had billions of unrecorded money at his house recently!He was responsible for an untold amount of killings....let's end the need for gangs and guns and legalize drugs...defund these people and provide treatment and care for people rather than wasting tax payer money on interdiction and incarceration...stop funding armies=gangs of highly motivated street soldiers!”

“time to stop the war on drugs...
A . it does not work
B. It is not fair....why should alcohol the worst drug of all... from a pharmacological standpoint... be legal....and the rest of them be prosecuted?

This goes for ALL drugs.....i repeat...compared to alcohol and cigs the rest of them combined are small potatoes...the high from the others is way different to....can you imagine how hard it would be for other kinds of drug users to touch there nose walk the line ....count backwards etc it would be...LOL not very hard at all.
I know there will be those who really want the way it is to continue....when you consider the drug cartel guy they just caught had Billions of dollars in cash at his house!!!! unbelievable amount of loose change out there depends on it being illegal....time to wake up and smell the coffee folks...those laws make some people very rich and many very " locked up" and it destabilizes entire countries....fuels an obscene amount of violence...THERE IS A BETTER WAY.....LEGALIZE now....make it a medical problem for those who are afflicted with addiction issues...we don't go around locking people up who are 400 pounds and hobbling down to the 7 eleven for a big gulp and potato chips”

“It's OK if you believe in a " free market non-regulated system" the moral dilemma is the same as prostitution...is one really doing this of free will ...or because of financial duress...if someone is losing their house or not able to send their kid to college or many reasons etc. is it really " free will"....I suppose it's way better than rounding up street people and runaway kids and harvesting organs....which is of course what would happen if a billionaire were to say i need a kidney and money is not an issue! It's a tricky question not easily answered without some thought”

“He is very likely collateral damage in the senseless " War on drugs".....wake up ....alcohol is a drug that is way more toxic and lethal...now we have people buying of heroin that is laced with a very powerful synthetic opiate and dying... BECAUSE they have no access to a consistent milligram dosage of their preferred drug....hmmmm Back in the good old days people were going blind from bathtub gin! We would be well advised to legalize drugs save all the money from incarceration and interdiction and put it into providing help to the 1 out 10 or so users of drugs ( be it alcohol or what ever) that are adversely affected by addiction . Just my two cents on this. there is no perfect solution when it comes to tricky issue like human nature...i like the phrase " harm reduction" .”

IF we are wrong see the planet change drastically......possibly making human habitation impossible or extremely problematic.......... ...OR say we believe everything said by the science community and assume that what science says is true and we really do have a global emergency on our hands and clean up now and cut emissions...IF we are wrong...some very rich corporations may be out quite a bit of money and we will have been inconvenienced quite a bit...and we would have been forced to work TOGETHER as one to address this problem adequately ..... the outcomes are quite different !!!

“Many times? No, only in a couple movies did they do that. And in real life, only a couple towns did that, usually in certain parts of town or at certain times of the year or only if you were an outsider. It was selectively enforced -- if the marshal liked you, it was OK. It only lasted a few years and had no impact on homicides.”
