The West's War On Fun
June 6 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court dealt a blow to the medical marijuana movement, ruling that federal narcotics laws ban the drug even when it never crosses state lines and is used only to relieve pain or nausea.
The federal government lists marijuana among the most strictly controlled drugs, a classification that also includes LSD and heroin.
It's amazing that the biggest exporter and purveyor of pornography worldwide , has such an intolerant stance on a substance that has been proven to alleviate the pain of those suffering from immeasurable pain. The issue is basically, drugs are fun. And the West's War On Drugs, I am convinced has become a War On Fun. The motive for outlawing mood altering substances is baffling, until one examines the American initiation of legislation that allows Corporations to monitor their employees for drug use. In effect, it seems , that this is a quest to make Westerners better and healthier robots. To be good effective workers. It can't be anything else. The "Big Brother"-like aspect to the War On Drugs is taken to even greater extremes in second world countries desperately trying to ape Americans. There is no better example than Greece, where drugs are socially taboo, yet porn and "casual sex" are never treated with even close to an equal level of vitriol.
