We discuss the legalization of marijuana, the effect of the drug war on incarceration rates, and on society in general.
KB and the REVOLUTIONARY RYDERS fire up the knowledge and get high off the revolution. Its time for our country to take a close look at legalizing marijuana. The unjust drug laws and the fake ass war on drugs has had a detremental effect on Black America. Why is weed illegal and alcohol isnt when it kills more people daily? How much tax revenue can be generated from the regulated sale of marijuana? What are the benefits of medicinal marijuana? Is marijuana the biggest gateway drug? Is weed worse than perscription pills?

With medical marijuana approved in more states each year and recreational use legalized in Colorado and Washington, experts are concerned that more teens may use the drug because they believe it's safe.
A Feb. 25 study published in the International Journal of Drug Policy found that about 10 percent of high school students who would otherwise be at a low risk for picking up a pot-smoking habit -- which includes those who don't smoke cigarettes, students with strong religious beliefs and those with non-marijuana smoking friends -- say they would use marijuana if it was legal.
For high school seniors alone, the shift would make up a 5.6 percent absolute increase in lifetime pot use prevalence. About 45.6 percent of high school seniors admitted to smoking pot in the study, meaning that legalization would increase that number to 51.2 percent.
The data was pulled from the Monitoring the Future survey, which was a nationally-representative survey of students in the eighth, 10th and 12th grade. The students were polled from 2007 to 2011, before recreational marijuana use was legalized in Colorado and Washington following the November 2012 elections.

We’ve had a couple years now to allow the drug court process to mature. We’ve had several “graduating classes” and a very good track record. We talked to the initial sitting drug court judge to get the framework of the court’s operations so now, let’s talk to several recent drug court participants and hear their stories from the inside. Join us this Sunday evening as we speak to Dan and Kurt and one of their biggest supporters, Blu.

Drugs has become a way of life in America from the simply I need weed fix to other more dangerous drugs including pharmacy meds. We pop so many pills the side effects and reactions have us acting out in ways that are not in any sense normal. From beat downs murders to hate and sexual acts against children and rapes we are seeing more and more people hooked than ever before and it numbers are growing with the numbers of deaths from the very same at risk people.
It's not like there aren't many better ways to make money but selling drugs seems to generate revenue faster. It's not like there aren't better ways to feel good and confident but drugs seem to get people there faster.
How do we protect our young people from getting caught up in the life of drug elling and drug abusing?
Let's get right into this.
Do you know anyone that had the potential to do something great but chose to sell drugs?
Have you known anyone that lead an otherwise productive life EXCEPT that they had a little drug habit?
Have you ever lost a loved one to the drug game?
Do you think jail sentences for drug activity are given fairly?
Have you ever tried drugs of any kind?
What are your feelings about rehabilitation?
Do you think that it's easy to go straight after making money selling drugs successfully for a number of years?
Do you think that getting off of drugs is easier than people give it credit for?
Do you think that the Just say no campaign of the 80's was a good slogan?
What advice would you give to a young person that was in the beginning stages of selling or using drugs?
