New York Marijuana March

I went to the annual marijuana march today...about 500 or so people came. I handed out 200 photocopies of this Discover article about a researcher who is having a very hard time getting funding for an treatment for drug addiction.

If our fucked-up government had spent a tenth the money and effort on curing my friend's addiction, instead having convicted murderers rape him in prison, he probably would not have killed himself when he got out.

Money for research and cures for addiction, not guns to shoot farmers and dealers, is a winnable war on drugs.

What we've been doing with our tax dollars, gunning down farmers from helicopters, is sick and evil.
