This is only my two cents, and it's pretty simple
so I know it's been said before.
Sometimes new words "stick" better. Or, if you
want the Truth to stick, you have to
keep repeating it and repeating it, to inoculate
against the Liars. And oh yeah, if you
haven't, then read "Marijuana Myths, Marijuana
It's illegal because the Arch-capitalists at the
very top don't like it,
because it itself is anti-capitalist.
When you can make bona fide happiness, what behaviorists
call Primary Reinforcers,
on your own, for free, it takes energy out of
the top-feeding system. Not very much energy
in the case of pot, but to the greediest &
most privileged among us it means they're not
squeezing all the profit they can get from your
time here on Earth.
You are supposed to slip a disk working to obtain
just a little happiness, in other words
to be OK about being generally ripped off.
To grow a Primary Reinforcer in an attic,
basement or closet is OUT OF BOUNDS. (Surpising
we are "allowed" to make
our own wine & beer.
Maybe it's because alcohol gives a hangover?)
If you're allowed to do that, you might
start getting ideas about other modes of free
fun. They would tax sex if they could.
You damned-well WILL sell them your labor so
that you can buy their goods.
And ALL your goods must enrich your "betters"
(i.e., anyone with more money than you).
"No more free steps to Heaven."*
They attack pot, paying lip-service to the idea
that they're trying to protect your "mind" or your life.
Why is it ALWAYS about cannabis when there's
SO MUCH else out there, including alcohol and nicotine?
Not to mention crank & Hillbilly heroin --
orders of magnitude worse.
They enthusiastiaclly sell you all kinds of mind-numbing
Narcotization is what they WANT. If they really
gave a damn, they'd tell you to put that
X-Box down & pick up a book. Or stop watching
American f-ing Idle (sic) & God forbid
TALK TO EACH OTHER (not necessarily over a beer
or a doobie!).
It's not as grim as it sounds, but: you are a
MACHINE whose USE is to create genuine
happiness for the REAL people near the top. "Not
as grim" because the Earth's bounty is finite.
"The Center cannot hold."
Now don't you go forgettin' your place, FIELD

album of a mere 30 years ago, "Scary Monsters."
