Big Turnout for Cannabis Decrim/Legalization Hearings

Pot LeafDozens of people from across NH came to the cannabis decrim/legalization hearings and spoke out in the criminal justice committee this afternoon at the state house in Concord. The Union Leader has a story about it here. (Al Capone was me, by the way.)

Here’s what Sarah from the NH Teapot Party had to say about the event:

So, in my opinion this was THE BEST hearing I have ever attended in regards to cannabis! I have sat through many hearings and watched the committee members falling asleep or rolling their eyes as the constituents talked, but sit upright and fully alert when law enforcement had their turn. It was always frustrating and infuriating. Today was almost the exact opposite!!!! What a GREAT afternoon!!! Not only were many of the committee members smiling and nodding at the testimony of those in favor, they were asking good questions. The opposition had their canned rehearsed testimony and were for the most part unable to answer questions.

Things just keep getting better as more liberty activists arrive as part of the Free State Project. If you love liberty, why aren’t you here yet? Here are 101 reasons to move to NH.

  1. Prohibition has finally run its course; the lives and livelihoods of hundred’s of millions of people worldwide have been destroyed or severely disrupted; many countries that were once shining beacons of liberty and prosperity have become toxic, repressive, smoldering heaps of hypocrisy, and a gross affront to fundamental human decency. It is now the duty of every last one of us to insure that the people who are responsible for this shameful situation are not simply left in peace to enjoy the wealth and status that their despicable actions have, until now, afforded them. Former and present Prohibitionists must not be allowed to remain untainted and untouched from the unconscionable acts that they have viciously committed on their fellow human beings. They have provided us with neither safe communities nor safe streets. We will provide them with neither a safe haven to enjoy their ill-gotten gains nor the liberty to repeat such a similar atrocity.

    Prohibition has (again) evolved local gangs into transnational enterprises with intricate power structures that reach into every corner of society, helping them control vast swaths of territory while gifting them with significant social and military resources.

    Those responsible for this shameful policy should not go unpunished!

  2. Prohibition always gives big money (power) to the biggest scumbags on the planet. End it!
