A Great Anti-Drug War Animation

Posted August 9th, 2010 by Xpansive Thought

This three-minute animation by Haik Hoisington contrasts a society that legally produces and consumes a pleasure- giving flower with a society where the same flower is illegal and prohibited. The animation reflects on the social and economic costs of marijuana prohibition.

That was a pretty funny

That was a pretty funny video. I just didn't agree with how they portrayed increased tax revenue as a good thing. That is a very bad thing in my opinion. That is just more money for the government to abuse people. I also didn't like how the video seemed to portray alcohol in such a negative light as opposed to marijuana. They are both drugs, both can be abused, both can be used in a positive way as well. It's important to remember that the problems associated with marijuana prohibition also show up when any type of drug or substance is banned by the government. Black markets will deal the demanded product regardless of the law and those willing to take the risks will become very rich doing so. There will be no company staking its reputation on the quality of the goods so unpure drugs and overdoses would be more likely. Police would be locking people in jail for a non violent activity. And it would all be a waste of money.

Thanks you for posting this@

Thank you very much for posting this awesome video here! I've added it to the blog at FreeKeene dot com in an article about our own activist who remains in jail in protest of marijuana prohibition :)
