Did you hear about the crazy flooding that's gone on in Colorado, within days of the feds saying they won't challenge the legalization efforts in the states?
I'm seriously surprised the Drug War proponents haven't seized on this yet, as a "direct" result of marijuana use/legalization. They've been doing so much outright lying about the inevitable legalization of marijuana that this wouldn't be totally out of character for them.
After all, they seriously expect us to believe that we'll return to their scam Drug War and all it's various ineffective and militaristic universal-criminalization methods once we see the "terrible toll" legal MJ will supposedly cause. Including a claim that we'll see more traffic accidents, despite the fact that studies have shown that states with legal medical MJ have no more or less traffic accidents but far less FATAL traffic accidents than in places where it's entirely illegal. And they seriously expect us to believe their fearmongering lies, as if we are of the same mind as the people of the "Reefer Madness" generation who actually believe to this day the lies in that "documentary".
Why not go all the way with this, Drug War Profiteers? You're already lying without a hint of shame to a country that knows you're lying. You're already generating all manner of outright untruths in a futile attempt to regain what you had in the glory days of old, before the public knew you were liars and crooks and charlatans. Why not try and blame this on the marijuana legalization efforts and try to use that loophole the feds left to jump in and neutralize the will of the people in Colorado--and then Washington and then any other states that have the audacity to come between you and your ill-gotten profit? Hell, try the religious angle ("God is angry that you made marijuana legal--He created that plant specifically so the Godly could use it to criminalize those who defy them...or have the wrong color skin, of course.")
I really am surprised I haven't heard any attempts to tie this into the legalization effort. I wouldn't put it past the Drug Warriors, given their many dishonest little tantrums they've been having since the 2012 election.
About this blog
Drug testing is an ineffective, unreliable, and inexcusably invasive form of security theater forced on the American people based on deliberately skewed data, public ignorance, and moral panic, and it continues operating on those frauds to this day, mostly because those of us who are aware of the facts must live in fear of being targeted as addicts. This blog is intended to raise public awareness of the real facts about drug testing that the testing companies don't want you to know, and to provide some tools to the public by which they can raise awareness while maintaining anonymity. I will also be accepting guest posts, if anyone has a story about drug testing injustices they would like to get out anonymously, or if anyone just has something to say against drug testing in general.
