Here is What Marijuana Laws Mean for Americans

Cops shoot dogs and traumatize children over a few grams of marijuana in Missouri.

Salem-News.com
Terrified children huddle together as police arrest a man for an amount of marijuana equal to a $50 infraction in California, Oregon, or one of several other more advanced states.

(COLUMBIA, Mo.) - Are you angry today? Well get ready, because here is another video showing what police are all about today, along with the country's outdated marijuana laws.

The video shows Columbia, Missouri police raiding a family's home, to serve a warrant. They are regular stormtroopers, working as a team with no chance of not succeeding.

According to the YouTube entry, "The cops bust in this guys house in the middle of the night and shoot his two dogs (one a pit bull that was caged in the kitchen and the other a Corgi) with children in the home."

You would assume that this guy is pretty bad, the police must have a good reason for kicking in his door and shooting his dogs with high powered weapons while his kids are home.

Ever heard of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD? It is the gift of violence that keeps on giving, and I guarantee that these children are forever traumatized by these thugs in blue with all of their determination and willingness to enforce stupid, needless, outdated laws that only benefit the insurance and big pharmaceutical industries?

I have a feeling those cops probably sleep well at night; they obviously enjoy what they do and they have the power to absolutely trump anyone who gets in their way. The biggest armed gang in this city, like most, have badges strapped on their chests that the very taxpayers they abuse, pay for. This video is something you may want to use caution when viewing:

This is a disturbing video clip, view with caution

We know other horror stories from this state, but then sadly you don't ever have to look that far to find cops freaking out about small amounts of this natural plant in a person's possession.

This supposed 'drug dealer' had a small pipe with some resin in it, a grinder, and "a small amount of marijuana".

The man reportedly had a few grams of marijuana.

YouTube member pscyhostyle, says, "We here in Columbia want everyone to know what kind of police department we have here, check out our 'finest' in action."

Those cops are a nightmare, and this is actually allowed to take place. There is not a thought for the children, the innocent dogs that the cops shot down as soon as they entered the residence. For perspective, 14 states have laws allowing legal medical marijuana. The amount that this man had is far, far below the amount allowed by patients to possess.

So this is how they violate human rights and utilize tax revenue in Columbia, Missouri.

In the video, note how the officer instructs the man simultaenously, to 'Not move" and to move his arms behind his back. Before the man can move, the brave officer takes a moment to kick the man. This nation is turned upside down on its head. I know those cops got off on treating that family that way, you can tell, it is crystal clear. There is no innocence, these are people seeking to be in these roles, there may be danger in the world for police, but in this case they are far more dangerous than any criminal stepping foot on their city streets.

I cant even say what I would like .Ive been there got the frigging tee shirt ,at least the punks didnt kill my animals,but putting a gun to my wifes head was uncalled for and she still has problems with it to this day. .They were going to shoot my alligator so they could search his room ,and forced me to wrangle him in cuffs or they would have . Al was the sweetest alligator ,I even took him into the local school with no restraints on his jaws for a teacher . He did get a little cranky after the third class I took him to. It was only supposed to be one class but one teacher after the other wanted to show him to thier class when they saw him . So as Chong said I wasnt an activist untill they sent me to prison ,I choose to fight with my voice and my vote .I write my represenatives call them talk to them ect. Every chance I get I remind people that this war on drugs is a war on our brothes and sisters ,aunts uncles cousins ect. I was at a journeymans upgrade class and this one guy was saying we should have a death penalty for drug offenders ,so I asked him if he thought I should be put to death .Its one thing to say that but when your intended victim is right there in your face ,your fellow worker ,classmate,child,ect. the reality hits home. Who are they to tell anyone what they may put in thier own bodies? Get involved ,let them know that legalization has your vote ,political power is the key to ending prohabition . Peace

Worthless piece if sh1t cops. The decision by the people of this country concerning legalization of the marijuana medicinal plant that has been used by humans for thousands of years is based in choosing between two opinions. The first one, articulated by the "father" of marijuana prohibition in the 1930-s and the second one by Dr Greenspoon, one of the leading contemporary experts in this country. These are the the direct quotes from the prohibitionist Harry Anslinger pushing the "Marijuana Tax Act" of 1937: "There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz, and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.” “…the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.” “Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality, and death.” “Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.” “Marihuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing” “You smoke a joint and you’re likely to kill your brother.” “Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind.” And this is what Dr. Greenspoon said in 2006 about Cannabis Sativa medicinal Plant: "Cannabis will one day be seen as a wonder drug, as was penicillin in the 1940s. Like penicillin, herbal marijuana is remarkably nontoxic, has a wide range of therapeutic applications and would be quite inexpensive if it were legal". Dr. Lester Grinspoon, professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, Los Angeles Times, May 5, 2006 " These are two opinions the citizens around the country will be asked to compare and to choose from. I do not believe that the choice is exceedingly difficult one. What I believe is that the fear-tactics must be rejected once and for all, and at least medical marijuana should be legalized in all 50 States ASAP.
