10. Legalization now!

First disappointing stance I have read from Bernie. There are many things I agree with him on but on this he is living in the past.

There has been no negatives of legalization in Colorado and Washington.There has been no negatives of the 45 or so states that have legalized medical use. There are only pluses no minus to deregulating this plant at the Federal level and allowing states to set their own laws and regulation of commerce.

What we no longer need is Gestapo militarized police invading the homes of peaceful citizens who are peacefully using a plant. It is madness the home invasion police raids that take place in this country on peaceful citizens whose only crime is possessing a plant.

Simply saying we should decriminalize small amounts of it is not enough. what about the people that want to grow it in their garden? The people that dont want to have to risk their safety and buy it on the blackmarket?

What about the blackmarket? A Scurge of criminals and heartless individuals that will sell poison to their customers if it means they will be hooked for life on harder drugs. The crime wave of the blackmarket has taken more lives then the drugs ever would alone. People going to drug dealers to buy a weed they could grow themselves introduces them to harder drugs and seedy individuals that would take all kinds of advantage of them.

Shame should be on the heads of the people who support the tyrannical prohibition of this natural plant given to us by a higher power. Whether you believe in God, Mother nature, or just the power of nature itself this plant was not put here by humans. Humans and especially Governments have no right to violate my relationship with nature, they have no right to prohibit my growing of food and medicine for my personal peaceful use. The only solution to stopping this tyranny is legalization and legalization now!
