The government that cries marijuana has reclaimed the cudgel; the scourge 
of prohibition is rearmed. The court's decision to refute claims that 
patients are entitled to the protection of our Constitution is most odious. 
They again become criminals in the eyes of Washington. Reopen Manzanar and 
fill it with medicinal cannabis users.

A secondary effect of prohibition that should be of concern to all 
Americans is that with the government spreading false propaganda, the 
populace is required to swallow lies whole. The country that is trained in 
being led with lies will find misfortune.

Had Jefferson, Washington et al. been here to see this, they would by now 
be unpacking the crates of AK-47s.
