Slowly, one by one, over the past 50 years, almost every non-scientific myth about marijuana has been disproven.

First, it turned you into an axe murderer. Then people wised up that that was bullshit.

Then, it caused males to grow breasts. Then people wised up to that.

Then, it killed brain cells. People still believe this, but it's not actually true. (Alcohol does, most other drugs do not.)

Then, it was a gateway drug. But the gateway drugs for most people are actually alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, and prescriptions (prescription drug abuse VASTLY outnumbering street drug abuse).

Then, "oh, the smoke is so much worse than cigarette smoke because you breathe it in deeper", and other such associated bullshit.

Except a 20 year study now proves that wrong. For occasional users, anyway. For heavy users -- sometimes there are still problems. It's possible to overdo anything.

But the argument that marijuana can't be used as medicine because it's too dangerous to be smoked not only ignores the evidence in this study, but the fact that you don't have to smoke marijuana. You can vaporize or eat it! You can grow it in your house for free. That's a huge threat to companies that sell us painkiller drugs.

But the smoke? Not nearly as bad for your lungs as cigarettes -- which remain legal (and should remain legal), and kill 350,000 a year.

And people are still going to tell me Obama is about positive Hope and Change? Yes, he is -- for some very small groups. For other groups? Take rights away.

Remember when Obama wanted to "leave it to states rights" for gay marriage? That was his way of saying he didn't support gay marriage, but would simply let the states be discriminatory instead of directly being discriminatory himself.

But states' rights for medical marijuana? Suddenly they're not so important. Obama and his doublespeak.

First DC, then MD. Slowly the East coast is joining the West coast. How long are the feds gonna waste our money prosecuting us for what 10% of people do? This is a minority as large as the gay population.

In a state where almost 50% of people voted to make marijuana legal, the cops think it's a good idea to stage a terror drill where a pot grower is committing acts of terrorism?

Bin Laden has successfully confused us as to the difference between "crime" and "terrorism".

Let us not forget that California was also the first place to make drugs illegal -- with the 1875 opium ban.

California has twice the population of the Netherlands -- but almost 15 times as many prisoners. Meanwhile, American politicians like to claim the Netherlands are a "haven for crime" because of their policies. America builds new prisons, all of them are overcrowded, and the Netherlands are shutting down prisons for lack of us. Who really has a crime problem, now?

The Drug Policy Alliance, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, the Marijuana Policy Project, NORML and its California affiliate, California NORML, and Students for Sensible Drug Policy, have all asked OBAMA - "What the fuck? This isn't change, this isn't hope. This is more of the same bullshit."

Will Obama listen, or will he continue pretending to bring about hope and change while nominating more Bush-era cronies that have blocked FDA-approved medical marijuana studies, thereby causing terminal patients to suffer unnecessarily in the name of prohibitionist politics?

I can't remember the last time I've seen such a complex issue represented in such an abstract fashion: A 3.5 minute animation with no words or dialog. And it captures the situation pretty well.
