Hmm... Medicated pretty heavy right now, but let me take a shot.
This is a tough one, but let's look at a slightly different view you may not have thought of?
Suppose shipping something hazardous like explosives was legal... and anyone could do it.
Sooner or later, someone's going to ship something that blows someone or something to kingdom come and the Executives and lawyers are going to ask- "Who do we blame for this?"
They point the finger squarely at the U.S. Postal service and U.S. Government for...allowing one to 'ship something hazardous like explosives legally' in the first place!
Now here's the kicker- Just because 'they' said you could do it legally, doesn't mean that nobody could get hurt or killed!
Same thing about shipping paint cans, flammable liquids, etc...they are not only considered dangerous, they really are!
SO...the horribly dragged out example I have given thus illustrates- "That is O.K. to ship most anything through the U.S. mail, as long as it is not considered criminal or dangerous."
Shipping volatile chemicals and explosives through the U.S. Mail? O.K... I get that, but shipping something that is harmless and wrongly labeled as both criminal AND dangerous?
Before the advent of the TV, computer, Internet, cell phones and live texting...there existed an old physical paper based service called...the U.S. Mail. THAT was how ‘information’ was spread and shared and the biggest, best way, at the time.
However our sleazy government found out that item #9 "Was the bees knees! and "should be shouted from the rooftops!". In short, they DID NOT WANT the people to know anything more about item #9, so they made it both criminal AND dangerous to ship it via THE U.S. MAIL.
Then the U.S. Government got busy with something called... W.W. II They pretty much didn't worry about people learning or finding out the truth about item#9.
Fast forward 20+ years later and the 60's changed a lot of things. People were finding out about item#9 and it was growing quickly in popularity, which the government DID NOT WANT. The moniker 'hippie' was born and people who knew about item #9 were instantly branded.
Talk about marketing- they say it once and it sticks? Holy crap!
Now the government has falsely created a whole new class of 'anti-socialists' or 'less than desirables' that the public knows as 'the bad guy…’The Hippie'.
Because the U.S. Government, who cares for us all so much by stating that shipping marijuana is both 'criminal and dangerous'...and like fools we believed them.
Further down the rabbit hole we go... wow these brownies are STRONG!
Stay with me now…
Who originally decided that shipping marijuana was both criminal and dangerous?
Bueller? Anyone? (sound of pin dropping)
Apparently none of us knows...otherwise we could look it up just like any other part of history and see who it was. Someone had to make that decision, really- who was it?
What if a lawyer (or group) were to challenge the U.S. Government IN COURT on it's current law (or policy) that makes shipping marijuana both 'Criminal and Dangerous'.
Think about it...the U.S. Government gets sued all the time, for a multitude of reasons, so this would be yet another one...or would it?
By PUBLICALLY drawing the U.S. Government INTO COURT on charges of "deliberately misclassifying marijuana as both 'Criminal and Dangerous'", this would FORCE the issue into the public eye everywhere like a white hot poker. Definitely, National attention. The people in that court case would be some of the world's BEST minds in regards to the 'medical benefits and government propaganda of marijuana'. Then the government would try to seal the case, or do media blackouts on the proceedings. Lastly, the people would find out that the government was deliberately trying to prevent people from learning was what divulged in that courtroom. Any way you slice it, the PEOPLE WILL FIND OUT that item #9 IS REAL!
So you ask- WHY is shipping marijuana considered both 'Criminal and Dangerous'?
That's a GREAT QUESTION and I believe the government needs to be called on it! Drag their asses into court and make them PROVE UNDER OATH AND PENALTY OF PERJURY that marijuana is both 'Criminal and Dangerous'. The government would then be guilty of perjury because they would just repeat the same old tired, bullshit lies they have spewed all along. BUT, the public might also get to hear from a different perspective, from proponents who are very knowledgeable and would TELL THE TRUTH!
But, you say- suing the U.S. government over something that everybody knows is preposterous, right?
Nope. People file frivolous lawsuits all the time. Like these for instance:
In March 1995, a San Diego man unsuccessfully attempted to sue the city and Jack Murphy Stadium for $5.4 million over something that can only be described as a wee problem: Robert Glaser claimed the stadium's unisex bathroom policy at a Billy Joel and Elton John concert caused him embarrassment and emotional distress thanks to the sight of a woman using a urinal in front of him. He subsequently tried "six or seven" other bathrooms in the stadium only to find women in all of them. He asserted he "had to hold it in for four hours" because he was too embarrassed to share the public bathrooms with women.
A San Carlos, California, man sued the Escondido Public Library for $1.5 million. His dog, a 50-pound Labrador mix, was attacked November 2000 by the library's 12-pound feline mascot, L.C., (also known as Library Cat). The case was heard in January 2004, with the jury finding for the defendant. In a further case which was resolved in July 2004, the plaintiff in the previous suit was ordered to pay the city $29,362.50, which amounted to 75% of its legal fees associated with that case.
In 1994, a student at the University of Idaho unsuccessfully sued that institution over his fall from a third-floor dorm window. He'd been mooning other students when the window gave way. It was contended the University failed to provide a safe environment for students or to properly warn them of the dangers inherent to upper-story windows.
In 1993, McDonald's was unsuccessfully sued over a car accident in New Jersey. While driving, a man who had placed a milkshake between his legs, leaned over to reach into his bag of food and squeezed the milkshake container in the process. When the lid popped off and spilled half the drink in his lap, this driver became distracted and ran into another man's car. That man in turn tried to sue McDonald's for causing the accident, saying the restaurant should have cautioned the man who had hit him against eating while driving.
These were ALL obviously frivolous lawsuits, right?
Correct. Simple logic tells us that.
So...is suing the government for "deliberately misclassifying marijuana as both 'Criminal and Dangerous' " frivolous?
Nope, because it's TRUE!
This would certainly draw huge amounts of attention to the cause and help loosen the death grip the government seems to have over its people.
So... you posed a question that surely many have asked and that none have been able to answer.
(man, these brownies are potent)
Ok, answer to the question- is:
The U.S. Government made it illegal (at some point in history, by someone) to ship marijuana through the U.S. Mail because… wait for it...
'they did not want the public to find out about item#9- marijuana'. Can you say EPIC FAIL?
