  1. Great job Sam Vederman! Keep up the good work!

  2. Yes, prohibition has ALWAYS worked on society??? I can’t wait until we ban the worst drug of them all, alcohol!

    Right now America has more people in prison than any other country in the history of the world. (per capita) And a huge percentage of these people wasting away in prison are non-violent and victimless drug offenders. Enslaving your fellow human being for a paycheck is not only immoral it’s evil!
