Tammy S.: So I’m confused. If the leaf helps people to recover from heroin addiction why make it a Class I? Isn’t this a good thing. The attached article says it’s non-addictive.
Rayn: Government creates law against substance. Government seizes substance whenever possible. Government law, and enforcement of it, lead to artificial scarcity.

(Carey Wedler) In a revealing statement that flew largely under the radar earlier this month, the mainstream media admitted it would never recover from its irresponsible and negligent coverage of the 2016 presidential election. A recent column published in the New York Post referred to the media’s reporting as “the complete collapse of American journalism as we know it.”
In his article for the Post, Fox News contributor Michael Goodwin discussed the media’s pro-Clinton bias – one recognized by supporters of virtually every other presidential candidate, from Bernie Sanders to Jill Stein to Gary Johnson and, of course, Donald Trump. Even Americans who don’t necessarily have a horse in the 2016 race notice the slant.
