In a recent announcement Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary for the Brits, put weed back up there. For us United States types this would be exactly like an upgrade from class C to class B felony; parole instead of probation, no right to bear (okay, so there ain’t no such right in England, and I ain’t a-commentin’), vote or…never mind. Let’s hope Bush doesn’t follow suit. You know this comes from her college days, don’t you? “Dude, that weed was lethal!” Oh well. I suppose she didn’t inhale.
Wow. What a medical advance. They’ve adapted a pesticide to give us the same pain relief as from pot–much more expensive, don’t worry–and best of all, the drug companies get to make a profit. Wow. They could even make growing pot at home illegal…that’s right, they already did. In fact–in technical fact–there is a revolution going on. That something should be federally illegal, not illegal in a state, and not generally enforced is something the government doesn’t want noticed.
