Kidnapped over a plant- only 'reasonable' to the stupid, evil, or insane

Kidnapped over a plant- only 'reasonable' to the stupid, evil, or insane

Browsing through the Albuquerque news I saw the headline announcing that two Albuquerque women had been caught crossing the "border" with drugs. Then I read a bit farther, and .... oh, it wasn't drugs after all. It was marijuana. That's when it hit me: I don't even think "drug" when I think of cannabis.

It's a PLANT, people. That's all. All plants contain a multitude of chemicals, some more interesting than others. Some of those chemicals might reasonably be called "drugs" once they are processed and refined, but a plant is not a "drug". No matter what the State's drug warriors might claim in their flimsy lies.

To kidnap people for possessing a plant, even 500 pounds of it, is absurd. It would be laughable if the prohibition didn't destroy so many innocent lives. It is long past time for this nonsense to STOP.

Added clarification: The comments indicate I need to clear something up.
I am not showing favoritism to marijuana. The same would apply if it had been 500 pounds of poppies or coca leaves. Until the specific chemicals are isolated, purified, and refined the plant is not a "drug"- it is a plant. Funny thing though... I never hear of a "bust" of THC like I hear the drug warriors bragging about stealing quantities of cocaine.

However, it is just as wrong- just as evil- to kidnap people for possessing refined heroin, cocaine, meth, or any other substance the authoritards prohibit. There is absolutely no excuse for prohibition that holds up for consistent, decent human beings.

The War on Drugs is ridiculous in all its forms and is based on the pure evil belief that it is "good" or "necessary" to control what others do with their life and body. It needs to end. Now!

Man takes responsibility for his own life and gets punished

Man takes responsibility for his own life and gets punished

An Albuquerque man has killed an intruder, being stabbed twice in the process, and for this the Albuquerque Police Department thanks him by charging him with a probation violation. Why do some people still call cops when attacked?

I was wondering why he stabbed the intruder rather than using a more adequate weapon like a firearm, but I suppose if he is on probation, effective weapons are prohibited to him, as the State sees no value in his life and safety. Fortunately for him he was able to get the intruder's knife away from him and serve justice with it himself.

I wonder what sort of offense has gotten him entangled in the government's "justice" system and resulted in probation, and what violation he was found committing when police responded to the attack. As is usually the case, the mainstream media has neglected to include this critical information.

I sincerely hope his act of justifiable and good violence in killing his attacker is not why the LEOs charged him with a violation. If he is being persecuted for a victimless act that the State calls a "crime", and then charged with violating his probation for a responsible act, then he is innocent and I hope he opts for a jury trial, and I hope the jury knows their responsibility to judge the "law" as well as the "facts of the case", regardless of any jury-tampering committed by the judge in his "instructions to the jury".
