To Save Secularism, Marijuana Will be Legalized



First they overturned the Prohibition. Then came Roe vs Wade which resulted in the culture of free sex in America. At the same time, Hollywood has been churning out entertainment programs for the last couple of decades. They amended their education system to force an unprovable notion that men originates from monkeys. Millions have passed through their lives forced to believe that men originates from monkeys.

Meanwhile, Westerners are socially conditioned to accept anti religion values like homosexuality, intoxication, promiscousness, atheism and many more.

Yet, in spite of the anti religion social conditioning, more and more Westerners refuse to cut their ties with religion. In fact religoucity is on the rise among Westerners and anti godliness is becoming more and more unpopular.

Secularism is now under threat. Spiritual emptiness that comes with secularism is becoming more and more unbearable. Secularism is slowly becoming irrelevant.

In order to keep Secularism relevant, there is now a concerted effort to legalize recreational drugs like Marijuana. California is leading the way in their quest to keep secularism relevant.

It's a wonder what they will legalize next once marijuana legalization starts becoming ineffective.

Westerners should learn from the fall of Communism. Godlessness will never last long. If Communism fell apart, so will Secularism.

LOS ANGELES | Thu Mar 25, 2010 6:51am EDT

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A California voter initiative that would legalize possession and sale of marijuana has qualified for the November ballot, state election officials said on Wednesday, in what supporters called a "watershed moment" for their cause.

Passage of the measure, by no means certain, would make California the first U.S. state to legalize marijuana. Backers believe the state could be at the vanguard of a national movement toward decriminalizing the drug.

"This is a watershed moment in the decades-long struggle to end marijuana prohibition in this country," said Stephen Gutwillig, California director of the Drug Policy Alliance, which has spearheaded the ballot initiative.

"Banning marijuana outright has been a disaster, fueling a massive, increasingly brutal underground economy, wasting billions in scarce law enforcement resources and making criminals out of countless law-abiding citizens," he said.

California Secretary of State Debra Bowen said in a written statement that her office had certified the measure for the November 2 general election ballot after backers submitted the required number of signatures on petitions.

Bowen said that proponents, who needed 433,971 valid signatures to qualify for the ballot, had submitted 694,248 that were verified through a random sampling.

POLLS SHOW MANY SUPPORT MEASURE

Legalizing marijuana appears to have broad support in the state, with some 56 percent of Californians surveyed in an April, 2009 Field Poll saying they favored making it legal for social use and taxing the sales proceeds.

In October, Gallup found 44 percent of Americans favored legalization.

Activists have suggested that taxing marijuana sales could help bail out the cash-strapped state, but plenty of Californians still oppose marijuana.

"With legalization of recreational marijuana use, impaired driving, fatalities, injuries and crashes will go up, and we don't want to see that," California Mothers Against Drunk Driving spokesman Silas Miers said.

The measure's qualification for the ballot was "the first step toward its defeat," said John Lovell, a lobbyist who represents a number of law enforcement groups.

Critics also say the social costs of a free-smoking state far outweigh the money it would bring in.

They say that the already enormous societal damage from alcohol and tobacco use would only increase if people were allowed to legally sell and smoke pot.

Under the initiative, simple possession of an ounce (28.5 grams) or less of marijuana, currently a misdemeanor offense punishable by a $100 fine, would be legal for anyone at least 21. It also would be lawful to grow limited amounts in one's own home for personal use.

While sales would not be legalized outright, cities and counties could pass laws permitting commercial distribution subject to local regulations and taxes. Retail sales would still be limited to an ounce for adults 21 and older.

The scary actual U.S. government debt
Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff says U.S. government debt is not $13.5-trillion (U.S.), which is 60 per cent of current gross domestic product, as global investors and American taxpayers think, but rather 14-fold higher: $200-trillion – 840 per cent of current GDP. “Let’s get real,” Prof. Kotlikoff says. “The U.S. is bankrupt.”

Writing in the September issue of Finance and Development, a journal of the International Monetary Fund, Prof. Kotlikoff says the IMF itself has quietly confirmed that the U.S. is in terrible fiscal trouble – far worse than the Washington-based lender of last resort has previously acknowledged. “The U.S. fiscal gap is huge,” the IMF asserted in a June report. “Closing the fiscal gap requires a permanent annual fiscal adjustment equal to about 14 per cent of U.S. GDP.”

This sum is equal to all current U.S. federal taxes combined. The consequences of the IMF’s fiscal fix, a doubling of federal taxes in perpetuity, would be appalling – and possibly worse than appalling.

Prof. Kotlikoff says: “The IMF is saying that, to close this fiscal gap [by taxation], would require an immediate and permanent doubling of our personal income taxes, our corporate taxes and all other federal taxes.

“America’s fiscal gap is enormous – so massive that closing it appears impossible without immediate and radical reforms to its health care, tax and Social Security systems – as well as military and other discretionary spending cuts.”

malaysia also should legalize it since it can reduce high blood pressure reduce diabetes reduce cancer and many more. beer and cigarettes producer as well as drug manufacturer will oppose it because people will save their money from buying beer cigarettes and medicines. all the profiteers will do lobbying to get it banned for their own interest and make people poorer.......existing muslim scientists had failed in recognizing its value while the US Government is now stockpiling marijuana for their own use in the next 10 years.
