Police Kill Marine During Marijuana Raid; No Pot Found
In this video, KopBuster and former narcotics officer Barry Cooper details how police use SWAT tactics and overreach their bounds when raiding homes.
Police have a tremendous power and drug laws open up too many opportunities for them to use it.
Police officers are human and they make mistakes, but when you are packing the kind of firepower that a SWAT team does, a “mistake” quickly becomes a slaughter.
Marijuana laws in particular lead to many of the events shown in the video below. A good man murdered, a family grieving and wondering why. Forever scarred because a plant is illegal and police have tremendous power to enforce its prohibition.
This story is a few months old, even though the video is very new. Even so, stories like this need to be shared everywhere. More people need to know that the drug war isn’t just a failure, it is an active evil in our society that does great damage to individuals and families.
Police shouldn’t be at war with the public, they should be protecting us. Law Enforcement loses the respect of the public through their attempted enforcement of prohibition. Without the public’s respect, there is no trust.
Does Obamas Harold & Kumar Promo Pander to Marijuana Users?
As the Democratic National Convention kicks into gear in North Carolina, a new promo from the Obama campaign clearly aims at the youth vote; more specifically, the “stoner” vote.
The promo is for the convention’s web coverage, hosted by Kal Penn, aka Kumar. In it Obama is seen to be engaging in a very serious conversation, a pep talk even. Cut to “Harold & Kumar” surrounded by food and laughing at cartoons. The only thing missing is a massive bong hit.
Obama is urging Kal Penn to support his campaign because he is counting on Kal. His pairing with Harold in the promo wouldn’t seem to target the “stoner” community in itself, but throw in the munchies and cartoons and this screams “pandering.”
Is Kumar supposed to make millions of medical marijuana patients forget how they were betrayed? Obama is Mr. Cool Guy with his Hollywood buddies while patients suffer; is that supposed to be funny? Inspiring? How about pathetic?
Cannabis users aren’t as stupid as you seem to think Mr. President. Contrary to the stereotypes about memory loss, there is no way patients can forget your flip-flop on MMJ.
