Cheech and Chong make millions of people laugh at the prohibition,
persecution and extermination of the relatively safe, socially
acceptable, God-given plant cannabis (marijuana). But cannabis
prohibition isn't funny. Negative consequences due to cannabis
prohibition is mind boggling. It's government subsidized
discrimination and persecution as though America is run by Nazi's
trying to destroy Us.

Cannabis prohibition even effects hemp which doesn't have THC, yet
government classifies it as a Schedule I substance along with heroin
and LSD. Hemp prohibition puts America in a mind bending lose, lose,
lose situation.

Ironically, America's largest debt is with China which allows it's
communist farmers to grow hemp while free American farmers are
prohibited from growing hemp. Does China have lobbyists helping
prohibit Americans from growing hemp so they might profit and cause
America to self-destruct?

Cheech and Chong is funny. Cannabis prohibition is nation destructive,
dysfunctional, luciferous, vulgar and selfish.
