Recently I’ve noticed quite a few columns, blogs and comments concerning the failed “war on drugs” and the idea of decriminalizing at least some currently illegal drugs.
To me, the general consensus seems to be that at the very least, hemp and marijuana should be decriminalized, if not outright legalized. At least among those that bothered to comment on it.
I won’t get into the marijuana issue in this blog, but I would welcome the discussion. I want to talk about hemp.
A federal judge focused scrutiny yesterday on a small Justice Department unit assigned to root out corruption when he dismissed the conviction of former senator Ted Stevens and appointed an outside lawyer to investigate allegations of misconduct by prosecutors.
