    No argument from me, a guy who thinks that prostitution should be legalized.

    Good move, but the feds will have their way here. Unfortunately the interstate commerce clause has become the giant that lets the federal government do anything, and in light of the Reich decision, even the requirement that farmers only sell to in-state processors won't avoid federal jurisdiction.

    Hey...Uncle Sam take notice...we have many dumb archaic laws that could use a do-over. I never was aware of this dumb law...good for them to overturn it.

    The history behind it is even more interesting. It seems like marijuana is illegal because of hemp, not the other way around. I would highly recommend, to anyone, a book called "Smoke & Mirrors: The War on Drugs and the Politics of Failure" by The Nation writer Dan Baum. It's a bit dry but an excellent piece of journalism.

    Another reason to support the Libertarian party this year. Contribute and feel better about yourself as an American.

    For some reason, I need to put on a Bob Marley CD and roll a big fattie. I hope my sh-t's still good! Been a while since I broke into the stash.
