What is truly, truly offensive to me is the abject contradictory idiocy of all this.
Well worth reading, and in Granny Herald: Positive drug use the 'great unmentionable'.
Associate Health Minister Peter Dunne would not comment on Mr Taylor's comments and police referred questions to the Government, saying they just enforced the rules.
It appears there's no one thinking ...
It looks as if these two men will be going to jail for up to seven years.
All they did was sell equipment private citizens could use to cultivate their own cannabis and other plants with.
Their customers dealt with them on a voluntary basis through the most civilising act known to man: the capitalist transaction.
These men have harmed no one, they have initiated no force. There were no victims in this supposed 'crime'.
Cannabis is a natural drug, not toxic, unlike legal party pills that may soon come to market only after being tested by torturing animals. Unlike alcohol on which you can overdose and die from, but can buy from the supermarket.
Yet, the lives of these two men will now be destroyed by the State.
Because the State says so. Essentially, it's a thought-crime.
This is barbaric. This is the society where your life is owned by your neighbours and total strangers.
The West is overdue for it's Spring, but how to thaw the frosted chains of the slaves mind? Just this morning I've been arguing with a man on Twitter who would have it the State is this omniscient thing so important no individual must escape from it (in the context of a peaceful, voluntary Seasteading community, which apparently no State can afford to leave the clutches of it's tax system).
Peace and freedom to all (something the brute, busy-body surveillance state will never give you).
