LOS ANGELES — Federal agents raided 10 marijuana clinics Wednesday, the same day city leaders introduced a measure calling for an end to the crackdown on the dispensaries allowed under state law.

The bust netted five arrests, large quantities of marijuana and cash, and was the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s second-largest since California voters approved medical marijuana sales in 1996. The drug remains illegal under federal law.

  1. Lo, prohibition? I think this one has gone beyond alcohol’s prohibition, there has got to be another name for it…. Any ideas?

  2. Thank you william, very well thought out response. Nice that you have taken the time out of your life to write all of that. I agree and it’s bullshit. Another issue all about the money, greed and stealing people’s lives away from them while those in power do the same thing, if not worse, and get off scott-free. Like Chris Rock said, ‘They want you to be addicted to ‘their’ shit’. ~Peace

  3. Namiste and peace to you all,

    President Ronald Reagan “The Great Communicator”, also was the one who came up with the great grandiose idea that this big country is at war against drugs, drug takers, drug dealers, and drug traffickers. His wife Mrs. Nancy Reagan at least did come up with a great idea teaching to young children just say no to drugs!!! Who is winning anything anyone? What war? Let’s face it we have lost the war on drugs. They have taken and captured our flag and the castle has been breached. There is no winning what people are going to do wither it is legal or it is illegal. The influx of drugs just keeps getting worse and worse. If it is a person’s plan that this is what they are going to do then they are doing to do it any way no matter if there is a law against it or there isn’t. If the US can’t stop the flood of illegal immigrants from entering the country what makes any one think that the flow of drugs can ever be stopped? What makes any one think that terrorists and gun smugglers don’t run drugs and guns or chemical or biological or dirty nuclear weapons across the border at any time they chose to? What makes any one think that there isn’t any one out there that is a terrorist that has the knowledge and the capabilities to enrich a dirty nuclear objects for example nuclear fuel rods to enrich them into high grade tactical nuclear weapons? Maybe our American troops can use some of the US’s sophisticated equipment that we pay for with our taxes to buy more night vision glasses to catch illegal immigrants or satellite surveillance. The then President Reagan’s Star War’s initiative huh how about Immigrant war’s?

    I am by far not an expert on drugs, and drug trafficking and in illegal immigrants and the law and in stopping any of all of this insanity. I definitely am not an advocate of doing drugs. I can only go on what I know, and what I have seen as a Democrat, blue collar hard working stiff, and raised as a common since thinker. I am not advocating that it is alright to do drugs by any one!!! I am not saying I advocate or want any of my children to be on any drugs, or any grandchildren, or nieces, or nephews, and or cousins to be doing any either. The fact remains that there is the possibility that one or possibly all of them might some day experiment with some drug at some point in time in their lives. I wouldn’t want to see any of them addicted, arrested, in jail, or imprisoned for a drug related issue that was not harmful to any other person other than them selves.

    I had read years ago an article written by the great journalist, and TV newscaster Mr. Walter Cronkite who said that there is no way to win the war on Drugs in America. He said that in the early 20th century large news paper tycoon Mr. Hurst had quite the monopoly on many syndicated news papers across the country that also used paper that came from Mr. Hurst’s vast lumber land holdings and his connection to the lumber and paper industry. It only served his best interest to talk about the evils of the hemp plant and to help cause the Marijuana plant which is also the hemp plant to become illegal to have or to use. This is a fact although the United States government had to have farmers grow hemp during WWII for to make ropes for the huge ships in the United States Navy. He had explained that in truth the hemp plant is a much better plant to be used in the production of the fibers that needed to be used in the making of paper, rope and can even be used to make clothing out of that is very comfortable and longer lasting than cotton. A tree on average maybe takes 20 years to grow to maturity and then can be cut down and processed into wood for lumber or for paper needs of the country. The hemp plant can be used and grown using a far less amount of land. The hemp plant can be harvested several times in one year as it is actually a weed, and it grows at a prolific rate. America’s Great forests don’t have to be deforested and loggers don’t have to be with out a job. The loggers and laborers can then be brought into line of raising hemp plants and in harvesting the hemp plant. They can be involved in the processing of the hemp plant and in its manufacturing business. The most unusual fact I read was that the US constitution is actually written on hemp paper which is very long lasting and a good paper for important documents. Hemp has been used for hundreds of years as a way to make paper, rope and clothing. It is ok to raise marijuana as long as you have a marijuana tax stamp for it. If you have marijuana though you are in violation of the law for having a dangerous drug and so it is a catch 22 for any one who has or uses marijuana. I really feel sad for the cancer patients that this weed could help with the terrible nausea that comes from the cancer treatments and allowing them to eat at least some substance to help keep them alive. We have had some experience with cancer as my mother passed away from it or it was the treatment associated with the treatment of the cancer. She died of lung cancer from smoking for over 50 years and by another legal drug just as alcohol is a legal drug. My husbands Brother was killed by a drunk driver before they had stiff laws that put drunk drivers away with stuff sentences for the taking of a life while intoxicated.

    America gets great and tremendous revenue for states and the federal government from sin taxes like for cigarettes, and alcohol, of which tobacco was one of the great products that help to found this country with the great slave owning plantations. We have lost the War on Drugs and we need to face this problem head on. Just like the war that was waged against the consumption of the evil alcohol during the roaring 20’s this was repealed by President Roosevelt. It didn’t work then and it isn’t working now. It was repealed because the law just wasn’t working. There were illegal bootleggers making moon shine, bath tub Jin, rum runners, and illegal liquor coming across the boarder from Canada. The gangsters like Al Capone were the ones making out on all of the illegal liquor business that the American society still indulged in heavily. The law had never stopped a thing only made it profitable for the gangsters to get rich off of. Police and politicians and judges were paid off or looked the other way. Some even indulged in the consumption of alcohol although it was illegal at the time. Probation also was the reason for the gang land wars that caused countless amounts of deaths, and new head bosses came and went even if a gangster was caught. A new bootlegger was there to take his place. The heavily priced alcohol was the seed money for organized crime to be able to buy the guns that were better than the police had. The gangsters were able to buy the more expensive cars with bullet proofing and faster than the police cars of the time. No one could stop the tide, it just kept coming in. Since no one could stop the flow of alcohol the law was finally repealed by President Roosevelt.

    The truths of these facts are still true today and self evident, just as they were back then. It is our government that should legalize the drugs and charge a tax on all of them. Take the control of the money and inflow of the illegal drugs away from the gang bangers and the drug dealers and put it in the hands of reputable markets that control it and charge and pay taxes on it. Take away the large amounts of cash flow from them and the marketability and watch the gun flows start to slow down and finally stop. Watch as the drive by shootings slow down and stop. Watch as young babies are no longer needed, or recruited into gangs looking for the quicker faster bigger buck. There will be no longer a need for gang bangers to do drive by shootings trying to shoot rival gang members only to also casually hit innocent by standers like for example innocent children playing by their houses or in a park. Imagine it just imagine it a end of the national debt. Take away or regulate Mexico’s and South America’s other best selling and most profitable product other than the coffee bean and the cocoa bean the cocaine leaf, the marijuana leaf. Make it a taxable product and make it used by people over 21 just like alcohol is. Take the power and the money out of the drug trafficking trade.

    How many of the Americans that use drugs are just the average casual user or is some one who is self medicating for depression or any other myriad of other medical reasons? How many are self medicating who are truly mentally ill in some way? Some of the tax money that is gained by the legalization of the drugs should be set aside for the treatment of the mentally ill. Those that self medicates, and address the real issues of why they are using the drugs and need them in the first place. Help out the mental hospitals the psychiatrists and other mental health people out there that try to help solve real life issues that are occurring in real life to these people. The local pharmacy would have control and know who is on what how much and how often and when these things are being taken.

    How many of America’s youth Black Mexican white or any other race that is in jail or prison due to a drug related issue. I say let them all go innless they committed another felony in conjunction with the drug position or the drug felony like murder or illegal gun position or for hurting another person. Violent people should not be let out. Why American tax payers should be paying for the cash cow of building new prisons and jails for drug abusers to be housed in is not a palatable option. They get free room and board. Their children are on the outside with out their mothers or their fathers. The next generation brought up with out any values or direction by parents who are not there in prison, leading to a new wave of evil doers into a life of crime. Prisons and the jail is nothing more than a teaching ground to make bigger and better felons. It is not the way to teach the next new way to be better Americans through education and in bettering their lives and the lives of their children. How many might have been the next Martin Luther king, The next astronaut, The next mother Teresa, the next president of the United States if just given the right chances in life. Does any one really think putting whole generations of the black brethren of America in prison and p[profiled by our police departments the way that they are. Does it really surprise any one that so many of the Americans inner city youths and now the suburbs youths are being recruited by the gangs and not the Army, Navy or the Marines?

    I would add that there is another alternative to which isn’t addressed in any county, state, or federal for drug dealers, drug traffickers, or drug abusers. Once they have been proven to be guilty they could always be taken out back behind the respective court houses and be turned around and shot in the head which used to be China’s policy on these predators on peoples addictions. This is highly unlikely to be the best or only good answer to this ever escalating problem in America.

    Namiste and peace to you all…

The politicians have so much money wrapped up in pharmaceutical companies & alcohol mfg that it’s no surprise that weed is illegal. And to think, most of them probably smoke weed! LOL. Freakin ridiculous I tell ya!
