Tired of spending Billion$ of the taxpayers hard earned dollars on a failed drug war senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the head of the Senate Appropriations Committee, told the governments of the US and Mexico to submit a workable plan to curb the drug trade or kiss their funding goodbye. The feds were already given $134 million this year but the wasteful greedy thugs are holding out their hand for more. At issue is an additional $95 million needed to continue their assault on the Constitution and civil rights. Senator Leahy has stood up to the jack booted goons and told them NO! Hats off to you senator Leahy, we need more like you.

Seems pretty stupid to spend money fighting marijuana now that the feds may allow it.

"The Impact Of Smoking Marijuana Regularly On Your Lungs, According To Science"

"“Lifetime marijuana use up to 20 joint-years is not associated with adverse changes in spirometric (exhalation strength) measures of lung health,” the study, featured in the medical journal Annals of the American Thoracic Society, concluded...“The distinction the Emory University study makes is not new,” Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws, told ThinkProgress. “It’s ripe with citations from Donald Tashkin who has spent more than 40 years trying to answer the question of what happens to people when they smoke tobacco and marijuana. This new study took things further; today these products aren’t being smoked [in a way] that the product is carbonized and there’s ash."

They claim that since they thought they had disabled all the cameras they were safe, but the thugs didn't get them all. HA-HA piggies, got you on this one!
