Sir Richard Branson, just over 2 minutes.
Quite interesting that The Global Commission on Drug Policy, according to Branson, includes 15 former Head of State crybabies: “I shoulda done something; this is awful; waaaa!”
WELL, YOU DIDN’T. YOU IMPRISONED PEOPLE INSTEAD. SO FUCK YOU.
Here’s the short article he published to LinkedIn. An excerpt.
Strangely, the trillion dollar war on drugs has persisted for 40 years even though it is the most dismal global policy failure of our time. Why do I care and why should you?
Millions of otherwise productive lives are wasted and lost in jail for marijuana possession and other nonviolent drug violations.
Too bad the War on
Drugs People (and their lives) didn’t waste the life of that awful hypocrite in the White House…a life so evil and devoid of any character that he’s perfectly willing to see tens of thousands of lives ruined yearly for the same thing he used to do with impunity as a notorious pothead. He’s even joked about it from time to time on talk shows—to the lafs of the likes of Letterman and their audiences. Utterly despicable. Utterly evil.
…by 2011, federal agents were raiding cultivators in California — a clear departure from Obama’s initial rhetoric — and leaving in doubt the future of new state efforts to decriminalize. Just one day before Washington state‘s historic legislation took full effect, Holder’s office released a statement that read, in part, “The Department of Justice is reviewing the legalization initiatives recently passed in Colorado and Washington State. The Department’s responsibility to enforce the Controlled Substances Act remains unchanged. Neither States nor the Executive branch can nullify a statute passed by Congress.
Any man or woman of true character in this matter—particularly one with the kind of hypocritical blood Obama has on his hands—would send a personally signed message to every Representative and Senator: “Go Fuck Yourselves. Impeach me, but I’m doing what’s right.”
Immediately thereafter, he would sign an executive order to cease all Federal anti-drug activity, prosecutions, etc., he would lay off all federal employees involved in drug interdiction, and would pardon 100% of people in prison for non-violent drug offenses in federal and state prisons.
Any man or woman of character. Immediately. …Of course, no one of character ever gets elected to office at the federal level, anymore.
