More Government Propaganda

If you think marijuana is a harmful, evil drug you will LOVE this.

All the problems that marijuana causes are blamed on the growers, users and sellers.

Apparently homes are being ruined by grow-ops.

People are being harmed by the violence surrounding the protection of those properties.

All totally the fault of the growers, sellers and users.

The fact that this drug is only grown in homes because it is prohibited, and would be grown outdoors if it was legal - totally eliminating that problem, is ignored.

The fact that the grow-ops have no recourse except to arm and protect themselves from heavily armed invasions, due to being unprotected by the law, isn't raised - even in areas where it is legal to grow and the growers have permits! They interview the local police, in legal areas, who say the growing number of home invasions is a real problem because non-grow-op homes are being hit by mistake. The police even mention that they aren't really interested if a grow-op gets shot up unless 'innocent' neighbours are involved.

Also, according to this film, the growing use of medical marijuana is an increasing large contributing factor. So it does manage to lay some of the blame on those seeking medical marijuana and even more on those legally, or illegally, growing and supplying it to them.

No word on why this drug is illegal, what its true affects are or how study after study has shown the damage being done by the 'war on drugs' is causing more damage than the drugs would if they were legal.

Also no parallels to the Prohibition of Alcohol, no mention of how the jails are being filled with otherwise harmless people or the costs involved to the legal system or to human lives by prohibiting something clearly wanted by a significant percentage of the population.

Basically it portrays marijuana as an evil that must be stopped at any and all costs. Any amount of sanctions, prosecutions or violence is totally justified.

Clearly, if only the people would unquestionably do exactly what they are told we'd all be able to enjoy our freedom of choice ;~)
