I have a confession to make….I HEART STEVE COHEN.
In a house judiciary committee this wee, Representative Steve Cohen, again, took the United States Justice Department to task on their policy on weed in America and challenged the evils of prohibitin on the national stage. Bravo! Bravo, Mr. Cohen! You sir, are my new hero and I would be honored to shake your hand. Below is the text and video of Steve Cohen giving Eric Holder the business:
And one of the greatest threats to liberty has been the government taking people’s liberty for things the people are in favor of.
The Pew Research Group shows that 52 percent of Americans think marijuana should not be illegal, and yet there are people in jail and your Justice Department is continuing to put people in jail for sale and use on occasion of marijuana. That’s something the American public has finally caught up with. There was a cultural lag, and it’s been an injustice for 40 years in this country to take people’s liberty for something that was similar to alcohol.
You have continued what is allowing the Mexican cartels’ power and the power to make money, ruin Mexico and hurt our country by having a prohibition in the late 20th and 21st century. We saw it didn’t work in this country in the ’20s; we remedied it. This is the time to remedy this prohibition, and I would hope you would do so.
THANK YOU, STEVE COHEN FOR TELLING THE USDOJ TO, “QUIT TAKING PEOPE TO JAIL FOR WEED!!!”
