    Prosecutors 95% of the time will try to plea bargain because they can't get a jury to convict people for simple marijuana possession. If you demand a jury trial, more than likely your case will be dismissed.

    Prohibitionists literally don't give a d@@@ about the welfare of individual citizens. That's you, me, and everyone you care about. They don't even care when their failed policy puts their own families in danger by destroying the economy and bank-rolling criminals and terrorists. The prohibitionist onslaught appears to be simply a war directed at all of us.

    America, it is time to wake up! Prohibition is a cultural and economic assault on your money, on your careers, on your ability to put food on the table, have shelter, cloth yourself, and even survive or self-medicate. The fiscal cliff isn't the crisis—Prohibitionist control over America's politics and government is!

    During alcohol prohibition, all profits went to enrich criminals and corrupt politicians. Young men died every day on inner-city streets while battling over turf. A fortune was wasted on enforcement that could have gone on education, etc. On top of the budget-busting prosecution and incarceration costs, billions in taxes were lost. Finally, the economy collapsed. Sound familiar?

    Prohibitionists, and their criminal friends who live in a crack-house called Congress, are having a ball and it's all on our tab.
