YES! The tide is turning against cannabis prohibition.
NO! Big Pharma won't allow pot to interfere with their drug sales.

please consider offering more than two choices in your "polls;" you leave no room for subleties or other possible explanations for an opinion than, say, big pharma's opposition to an outcome. such reductionist, sound bite takes on reality are the tools of the right, not suitable for social thinkers.

I can only imagine that in short time cannabis prohibition will be completely lifted on a global scale. This prohibition was created by a handful of wealthy investors who wanted to remove the only obstacle to their oil and wood pulp monopolies that they owned and wanted to milk for all they are worth. The public were taken advantage of during a time of great vulnerability to go along with this plan. Now after many decades, not only is the truth being made public and common knowledge, the impact of the subterfuge is also being made known. There is no turning back now. The truth has caught up to the deceivers and this genie is never going to be stuffed back into his bottle.

I certainly hope so. If booze and cigarettes can be legal, then why not pot? Simply make the same age requirements as for booze and cigarettes; package it like cigarettes and tax it at the same rate as booze. The revenue can go for serious drug treatment programs.

Hello All

Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
