What Would Jesus Do About Current Drug Policy?


He’d be pretty pissed off about it, if you ask me. Jesus Christ was about two things: Number one was forgiveness, and number two was compassion. So if you’re a Christian and you think that these policies are something that your Lord and Savior would embrace, you’ve got another thing coming. Not only that, but how would he feel about us supporting policies that are the foundation for much of the violence and mayhem that we have around the globe today? Loving people—that’s how you get people to treat themselves better.

Former Undercover Drug Narc on Why Police Don’t Bust White People and How He Turned Against Drug War

He helped wage the drug war. Now he’s fighting to end it. Neil Franklin, head of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, tells it like it is. He is convinced that the policy of drug prohibition is the reason our communities suffer, the source of violence. Prohibition is not just about substances, it also creates a situation where people’s ability to survive is diminished. They can’t vote, can’t find work, and turn back to the market that got them in trouble in the first place. It’s a cruel cycle, one that Nixon – fuck you, Dick – used to crush his critics, and keep a foot on the neck of the black community. It’s racist and stupid. Legalize your body!


This is why I’ve always supported LEAP. Drugs are not the problem, prohibition is. Get smart and fight the Drug War because it’s destroying our working families and communities (and the banks love laundering the money).

  1. Consider this, slightly over 90% of people who uses drugs do so responsibly. Of the less than 10% that do suffer from addiction/dependency, only a small percentage of them commit crimes to fund their addictions. So to incarcerate 100% of those caught, who uses drugs in attempt to control the fewer than 10% that might commit crimes is idiotic at best. I’m mean really whats the likely hood of Lindsey Lohan or Jim Irsay ripping off your car radio. As with alcohol not everyone who drinks is an alcoholic, but for those who are, there is available treatment to assist them, no one is arrested unless they break an actual law, this is the approach we should take with all drugs, and stop punishing and demonizing those who uses their drug of choice responsibly. Focus on offering readily available treatment to those dealing with issues of substance abuse and save those billions we are throwing away year after year, and fix these darn potholes, schools, and bridges


    1. It’s social control without a shred of credible evidence to support federal classification. Patents on cannabinoids go back to the 1940s. Cannabinoids – hold onto something – were first identified as ways to fatten babies. Nixon recognized that he couldn’t malign protesters and “the blacks” directly, so he criminalized undesirable behavior the uncritical masses would just lap up. Drugs were bad because bad. It worked for election purposes to shake the minorities down. People asked for proof and got zero. Reagan sort of tapped into an idea of America that never even existed. He had Alzheimer’s.

      have been pushing the progressive agenda for a long time. Legalization of weed in Colorado has driven down abuse of heavier drugs.

      when it was revealed that the banks have been laundering the drug money and nobody even fucking cared. The DEA mismanaged the job. I feel bad for all the lives of families and individuals ripped apart by policy that turned citizens into reprobates, neighbors against one another. LEAP is great at showing the connection between crime and enforcement. Neil Franklin deserves recognition for his efforts. I did a study on drug use in state penitentiaries and found that, on any given day, there are 75,000 people getting high in lock up. The problem is no one prosecutes because it’s such an embarrassment. The model can be extended to the public at large. That’s why we have McDrug courts to get people speedily off the dockets. And leopards like to trip balls. i want to take acid with a leopard. That’s the real reason I wrote this. I’m a Taoist.
