May Day I

Irrational fear of Mexican immigrants was a primary tool in the original campaigns to demonize cannabis, including referring to it as "marijuajuana."


Today is a big demonstration against the anti-immigration sentiment rising in our country, and Mexico has recently proposed legislation to legalize small amounts of many drugs including cannabis for personal use in efforts to focus on dealers and traffickers instead of "consumers." It's a real shame that will be used as more anti-Mexican ammo in the upcoming midterm elections.


Update: Unless Mexico's Presidente Fox decides he won't sign the bill after saying he would- I think we can thank Washington for forcing the hand of Fox......not the channel this time.

    @Madeline - if you don't like the keyboard then you missed the whole joke.

    @RIPizzo - Thank you!

    I was probably completetly high when I first saw this picture. I took a closer look and it's clever, but I hold true to my previous comment.
