Factoids & Opinionates

Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself.  (President Jimmy Carter; Message to Congress; August 2, 1977) 
Essential for valid comparative analysis of drug abuse in America is an understanding of the number of Americans that die every year from:
Nicotine addiction - 425,000
Alcohol - 50,000
Legal Drugs - 27,000
The illegal drug trade (dealers' turf wars) - 23,000
All illegal drugs combined - 6,000
Marijuana - 0
(Dr. Lester Grinspoon, Harvard) 
There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana usage. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others. (Harry Anslinger, testifying to Congress, 1937) 
Make the most of the hemp seed and sow it everywhere.  (George Washington, 1794) 
Prohibiting drugs is actually more repressive than restricting freedom of speech, because it's more intrusive. Prohibiting drugs means prohibiting people from altering their state of consciousness, altering their thoughts as they wish. The idea that government has a right to regulate one's body chemistry is worse than the idea that it has a right to regulate what one says. (nobody@huge.cajones.com)
