Drug War "good" Money

The Drug War is no Joke, it's tyranny!

The War on Drugs is big, big business for many groups (such as police departments, security companies, and even municipalities who receive government grants). So you may not be surprised to learn that one of the key lobbyists who helped defeat California's medical marijuana legalization ballot measure is getting rich off the drug war!

Lobbyist who helped kill California pot legalization ballot measure is getting rich off drug war.

The BIG bloated federal government's so illegal war on drugs is such a big business for lobbyists who love to profit and make sure patients never have access to marijuana, whether it's your medicine or for recreational use. To name one of many, John Lovell, unlike his name has no love for his fellow man, he only sees his holy dollar signs. He reportedly cashed in nearly $400,000 from the California Police Chiefs Association (CPCA) for his help in defeating Proposition 19, the ballot measure that would have legalized marijuana and generated billions of dollars in brand new tax revenues for the state.

The total amount awarded was $550,000, to be split between Shasta, Siskiyou and Tehama counties, which make up the Northern California Marijuana Eradication Team (NorCal-MET). Broken down in the agenda worksheet, the sheriff’s office is expecting to spend $20,000 on flight operations, $94,895 for the full-time deputy’s salary and benefits, $16,788 for the administration assistant salary and benefits and $29,983 to cover up to 666.29 hours of overtime.

Police unions also contributed about $100,500 to a campaign account used to coordinate opposition to Prop 19. Of the $386,350 in fees paid by police unions to Lovell through 2009 and 2010, status update reports reviewed by Republic Report reveal that Lovell worked on a number of issues, from advocacy against Prop 19 to channeling grants and monitoring legislation.

Of course, police unions aren’t the only interest group with a stake in maintaining broken drug laws. The beer industryalcohol corporations, and prison guard unions also contributed money to help Lovell stop Prop 19. Howard Wooldridge, a retired police officer who now helps push for legalization as a citizen advocate, told Republic Report that drug company lobbyists also fight to keep marijuana illegal because they view pot as a low-cost form of competition.

The Rabbit
A little rabbit is happily running through the forest when he stumbles upon a giraffe rolling a joint.
The rabbit looks at her and says, 'Giraffe, my friend, Think about what you're doing to yourself! Come with me running through the forest, you'll see, you'll feel so much better!' The giraffe looks at him, looks at the joint, tosses it and goes off running with the rabbit.
Then they come across an elephant doing coke. So the rabbit again says, 'Elephant my friend, why do you do this? Think about what you're doing to yourself! Come running with us through the pretty forest, you'll see, you'll feel so good!' The elephant looks at them, looks at his razor, mirror and all, then tosses them and starts running with the rabbit and giraffe.
The three animals then come across a lion about to shoot up some smack. 'Lion my friend, why do you do this? Think about what you're doing to yourself! Come running with us through the sunny forest, you will feel so good!' The lion looks at him, puts down his needle, and
starts to beat the shit out of the little rabbit.
The giraffe and elephant watch in horror, then finally obtain the presence of mind to pull the lion off the rabbit. 'Lion,' they reprimand, 'why did you do this? He was merely trying to help us all!' The lion answers, 'That little f**ker has me running around the forest like an idiot for hours every time he's on ecstasy!'

Jesus sees that planet earth is going down the drain because so many people use something called drugs. So he has to know about this kind of shit so he calls all the Apostles and tells them that they have to go down to earth to see for themselves what is going on and then go back to Heaven and report to Jesus...
The Apostles go to different places on earth and after some time they come back to report what they saw. John comes and Jesus asks him "What did you find?" John: "I've got some funny stuff, that's called marijuana..." Jesus: "Oh yeah? Let me try it..." he tries it and... "Hey dudes, the music sounds so great!"
Then Paul comes with some amphetamine... Jesus tries it and goes "Wow, I'm feeling hot and full of energy!"
Then comes Peter with some LSD and Jesus says "My hands... they look soo... strange".
He tries all kinds of dope from each and every one of the Apostles and in the end he welcomes Judas with a huge stoned smile...
"Sooooo..... Judas ..... my ..... brother" he says, "What did .... you bring?"
Judas: "Errr... I brought ... the cops!"
